During the 17th and 18th Centuries, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was caught up in particular philosophical debate (of sorts) between two contesting schools of thought. One of these schools of thought dated back to the pre-socratic philosophers, who believed in reducing reality down to greater forms, substances, and properties. This Formalist school of thought was called … Continue reading On Rationalism: Organicism and Mechanism (revised)
"They're just a bunch of cronies!" is something that many a citizen has said of their respective elites. The average man isn't necessarily wrong in thinking this, but who is he to judge? Would not all men be tyrants if they could? Are we not all tyrants in one way or another? It is from … Continue reading From Gangs to Governments
Few nations resist the Menshevik, Mammonist movement that grips the world today. Many open up their markets and open up their elections to subversion and terror. The Mammonist world order revels in the chaos it causes, failing to fully constitute itself. Trumpism represents a final stand for the military industrial complex which the plutocracy has … Continue reading On Socialism: Ba’ath, Juche, and Third International Theory
In Sparta there ruled two lines of kings, the the Agiads and Eurypontids who descended from the twins Eurysthenes and Procles: both supposed descendants of Hercules. In the West we have the potential to see two Emperors emerge, both descendants of the proclamation that might is what makes a superpower right. Whether these Caesars will … Continue reading Trumpism and Putinism
In my essay on Pre-Marxist Socialism, I referred to a particular tendency that contrasted the Marxist Socialists (and Socialists as a whole largely) with the Anarcho-Collectivists during the First Communist International. This tendency only persisted with the rise of Leninism in contrast with Trotskyism, in other words, the rise of Bolshevism against Menshevism. By the … Continue reading On Socialism: Bolshevism vs. Menshevism
There is a strong connection between the idea of things striving towards a particular end, the idea of an end of history, and the idea that we are bound to a particular historical context which operates according to certain laws of history. The idea that we strive towards a particular end or purpose is known … Continue reading Teleology, Eschatology, and Historicism
What is ideal of “freedom”: privacy. What is ideal of “equality”: unity. What true freedom is: nothing. What true equality is: no distinction. What freedom amounts to: greed. What equality amounts to: envy. "All that proceeds from the entitlement and envy of “free men”, I call: "equality.""
"While Fascism was limited to a particular place and time, it touched upon certain truths that inspired other similar regimes and truths which underlie every society, even our own. Proto-Fascism refers to political systems prior to the Fascist ideology which had fundamental similarities to it. Para-Fascist ideologies (ideologies influenced by or "parallel to" Fascism) differ … Continue reading Note on Fascism
Fascism was a political ideology and philosophical movement from the early twentieth century which was formulated by Giovanni Gentile and Benito Mussolini. In some ways, it is a highly historicist school of thought, focused on being able to act in the moment defined by a particular historical context; on the other hand, it reduces history … Continue reading What is Fascism?
I write about right-wing socialism right after Pre-Marxist socialism because right-wing socialism constitutes a variety of pre-marxist socialism, but one that emerged slightly after the French Revolution and those who Marx dubbed the "Utopian Socialists". Right-wing socialism also emerged in an entirely different current of thinking. As I did previously mention, de Masitre did influence … Continue reading On Socialism: Right-Wing Socialism
