Reprobate Hollywood, From Ancient to Modern.

The world is now coming to realize what some keen observers have known all along: that Hollywood as a cultural institution is rotten to the core. As a major part of the culture industry (to borrow Horkheimer and Adorno’s phrase,) Hollywood has eaten away at the moral and spiritual fabric of society while also serving as a major conveyor belt for the absolute worst ideological excesses of the modern world. The cultural legitimacy and influence of deep-pocket creeps like Harvey Weinstein are shock

In Defense Of Republicanism

The predilection by many in neoreaction for the monarchical system of government exists to such a great extent that one might almost deem it a fetish. Mr. Mencius Moldbug, of course, kicked the entire enterprise off with his blog of Unqualified Reservations, in which, among other things, the virtues of monarchy were extolled. It was often difficult to tell if, in his posts, Mr. Moldbug was being ironic; indeed, it was often difficult to tell if Mr. Moldbug was being ironic about nearly everythi

The Spirit of a Spiritless Situation: On the Right's Failure to Organize

If you’re going to surround yourself by Marxists, I recommend doing so around the time of an economic collapse. I happened to be in such a situation during the financial crisis of 2008, and the experience was about as exhilarating as an experience can be, when you’re hanging around people who read the Grundrisse for fun. Indeed, there was a brief period of time when it looked like Congress would allow the entire financial system of the United States to collapse because individual Congressmen wer

What If Everything Neoreaction Knows About Monarchy Is Wrong?

In his blog Unqualified Reservations, Mencius Moldbug set forth in an erudite and entertaining fashion a political opinion that had not been articulated for a long time. The Modern world had taken a wrong turn in the 18th century when the burgeoning representative republics began to topple kings. Democracy was the problem. In making this case, Moldbug was doing so as a libertarian atheist who accepted the basic thrust of Modernity. This acceptance in many ways was a source of the moniker “neo” i

The Will to Power in Contemporary Politics: A Martian Perspective

Imagine, if you will, a Martian sociologist who, having spent some months on Earth discreetly observing politics and society in contemporary North America, reported on his findings at an academic conference back home. The proceedings might go as follows: "The humans have a bifurcated social structure that divides them into two major groups. The first group, the majority of the population, appears to do most of the productive work in their economy. With respect to the second, much smaller group,

Lally-Tollendal's Defense of the Royalist Emigres

The problems of dealing with migrants, refugees and settlers are an area that empires have had a decisive advantage in, historically. States founded on civic equality, constitutional rights and unitary territorial integrity do not have the mechanisms of personal control, the corpus domini (body of the lord) as opposed to corpus civitatis (civic body) style of governing in a patrimonial and seignorial fashion. As such, they suffer terribly when dealing with exceptional disasters like refugee cris

Slouching Towards Fascism?

They’re at it again. This time the target is Italy, the homeland of the dread “F word.” The award for most outrageous headline may go to Quartz, which called the recent elections in Italy the endgame of Steve Bannon’s “‘ultimate dream.’” Why, you may ask? Because, like in 2016, the populists won the day. Some history is needed first. Like other Mediterranean nations in Europe, Italy has long been considered something of an albatross around the necks of German, British, and Scandinavian taxpayer

Vaublanc's Specula Principum for the Modern Age

The "specula principum," or "mirrors for princes," was a longstanding genre in European literature starting from at least the Carolingian period in the early 9th century, with the most notable examples from that time probably being Sedulius Scottius and Hincmar of Reims. Such books of instruction and advice, dedicated to personal rulers as opposed to institutions, covered various subjects from exhortations to virtue and piety, household and fiscal management, selection of ministers, ecclesiastic
