Aristocratic Individualism In An Age of Populism

Democracy’s root meaning is from the Greek demos (people) and kratos (power). Democracy and liberalism are the decadent expressions of mass-orientated culture centered around the people, the middle of the bell curve, where nothing extraordinary or worthy of note is formed. People who merely exist and never go beyond their comfort zone and status quo, being thrown around by the forces of the universe. When power is flipped upside-down like this, there is inevitably chaos and degeneration, no one

Lothrop Stoddard on Nazi Feminism

Just about everyone equates National Socialism with social conservatism, not least of which contemporary sympathizers of National Socialism who regard it as the traditionalist philosophy par excellence, capable of invigorating the mind, body and soul of the great European race like no other. It is therefore worth bringing up some observations from Lothrop Stoddard, a figure I believe every racialist would regard as a trustworthy source. One of his lesser known works, Into the Darkness (1940), do

My Hometown Is Gone.

Hi! This is a blog post I threw together in response to the recent increase in refugee numbers by Trump’s State Department, in order to convey what it is like living in an Islamizing area. I gave a talk at a luncheon a few months ago that was basically relating my story of how my hometown has been Islamized by refugee resettlement. So it makes sense to do a blog post. I’m from the Utica, NY area. Utica is the city nicknamed by the UN “the city that loves refugees!” Soon every American city will

Kaite McHugh and the Cucking of Breitbart

Breitbart has, for at least the past few years, been viewed as the ultimate Right-Wing media boogeyman in the hive-mind of coastal Liberals. With the recent firing of Breitbart reporter Katie McHugh for what were transparently tame comments, any such understanding of Breitbart as a formidable Right-Wing Media outlet should be promptly dispensed with. The truth is that, with the firing of McHugh, they have sacrificed one of their last remaining interesting voices in exchange for "respectability."

The Self-Actualization Culture

We’re given one chance, one life, just a blip in history to make an impact before… The secular liberal culture won’t say what, but the usual choices are the abysmal void or an obscure, peaceful place formerly called Heaven. The preeminent emphasis is thus on achieving self-fulfillment in this life. Its buzz words flit about us in the media: follow your passions and be you. Like sirens they call us faintly to ever elusive self-actualization as enumerated in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, modern

Our Patriarchy Is Artisanal, Organic, and Locally Grown

After the recent Muslim slut-shaming in Manchester, England I thought that maybe there is a kinder, gentler way to promote modesty among young women of the West, besides blowing them up. In the Huffington Post Gabby Aossey’ explained the limits of American Feminism’s focus on the body and sexuality and concludes that Islam offers another way: As American women, many of us have an idea of what feminists are; freelancing women with all the sexual freedom in the world. But this is exactly the pr

Support Thermidor on Patreon

Alright so we finally did it, we caved and got a Patreon. 5 months ago I started this site as an experiment, having no idea whether it would succeed or be a total flop. Needless to say Thermidor's progress, thanks to the hard work and creativity of our scribblers, has wildly exceeded my expectations. We are now officially past the "proof of concept phase." Hence Patreon. None of us are doing this for the money, but it would be nice to not only have the funds to pay for hosting but also be able t

Debate Me, Dreher

It's the only gentlemanly thing to do, Rod. You've been ably fielding criticisms of the Benedict Option from your left for months, taking on all comers. Meanwhile your engagement with those to your right has been notably minimal, if not entirely non-existent. Indeed, from the policing of your comment section and blocking habits on Twitter, it seems you're inclined to flee the field entirely when faced with criticisms from your right. To be fair, we are a small minority with not much clout in th
