Today, Donald Trump takes his oath of office as President of the United States. While this is a victory for the alternative Right, a look at demographic changes in America will remind us that the struggle is far from over.
The alt-Right doesn't need the media: they need us. The recent case of a "journalist" who tried to infiltrate the alt-Right expat community in Budapest and embarrassed herself in the process shows this.
In the 37th episode of This Alt-Right Life, I talk to Return of Kings contributor Corey Savage about his new book Man's Fight for Existence: The Primalist Manifesto, how modern life is killing humans and more.
Part of humanity's progress has followed from picking up on ideas learnt from others, using and conserving them. One reason why human beings rule the planet, as opposed to the genetically almost identical great apes, is that we can keep building on what others have already accomplished.
The political truth of Europe at this time was that democracy, faint and pale, panted for its life on the fringes of the continent. Meanwhile, two tyrannosaurs conjured by a common revolutionary spirit that had recently destroyed and discarded entire empires, had been set against each other in the historical arena. In this extraordinary situation the even more extraordinary happens: Art, hitherto blowing petrol on every existing revolutionary fire in Europe and elsewhere, ecstatically watching every vestige of old Europe going
up in flames, suddenly declares itself innocent. And as though that weren’t even enough, it is now: The Victim!
The battle between Islam and Christianity precipitating the fall of Constantinople was an event that for ever changed the course of history. Breathtakingly rendering the internal struggle of the Byzantine capital under deadly constriction, and the occult high-stake political game surrounding it, The Owls of Afrasiab also tells the story of the dangerous passion uniting the Genoese commander leading the city's defence with Hadije, one of the wives of the late Sultan Murad, determined to avenge herself for the murder of her baby boy ordered by the young and lethally ambitious Sultan Mehmet II.
Allow me to explain the reasons behind the erroneous positions adopted by the communitarian intellectuals of the New Right. This is what I think: this ideological nonsense does not necessarily stem from a calculated change of direction nor from a shift of position, but is due to both an exaggeration and an extremisation of the polytheistic and organismic worldview, a worldview that I otherwise agree with completely, but one that eventually turns against its own initiatives, just like any system of thought whose principles are taken too far.
The Alt Right exploded onto the political scene and then hesitated as its inner conflicts became real. We might see the Alt Right as the Right which refuses to limit its speech to what is politically correct, but at heart, it is a realist movement against the past seventy years of entirely conjectural ideology.
