Growling Bear, Hidden Dragon: Russia and China’s 21st Century Fascism

February 28, 2015 in Commentary

They're Baaa-aack!A brief history of Fascism

Fascism first emerged in the 1920’s, rallying and spreading like wildfire until the combined forces of Liberalism and Communism defeated it in 1945. Italy could probably be described as have the most pure “Fascist state”, as a nation that placed primacy of culture over blood, whereas Nazi Germany’s racialism was a slight deviation from Mussolini’s original fascist vision. Nonetheless, once Fascism was defeated in 1945, the ideology retreated to Franco’s Spain and Salazar’s Portugal, where it would experience a slow, decrepit death. Its most successful spin-offs were perhaps Arab Ba’athism, whose last vanguard is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the “Third Position” of Juan Peron in Argentina and Augusto Pinochet in Chile. Once Saddam Hussein’s Ba’athist state came to an end and now that Assad has been reduced to protectorate of Russia, orthodox Fascism is all but a memory.

Or, is it? …

Defining Fascism

It’s almost impossible to define “Fascism” because its so politically charged, with its opponents still eager to bury it and its proponents eager to present it with new labels to dodge the Liberal and Communist propaganda against it. Essentially, if a political movement is rooted in a romantic and even spiritual vision of a nation’s identity being revived, then it’s Fascist. If it rejects the economic and ideological reductionism of Communism and Capitalism in favor of a poetic rebirth of a nation by and for its people, then it’s Fascist.

The Imperium of Man: A Path for Modern Politics and Faith

February 25, 2015 in Commentary

Fascism_844155_5078162

Memes like this started out on message boards simply to troll SJW’s, now they are found increasingly in public debates.

The intersection of pop culture and deeper beliefs is often an interesting one. In online forum groups like 4chan over the past several years one can clearly see that jokes that glorified National Socialism or radical Traditionalist positions began first as simply a giant middle finger to the Social Justice Warriors and the overall system of political correctness.

Over time, however, it has become clear that more and more youth are no longer just trolling the System They are looking for inspiration to forge a new worldview that attacks egalitarianism, atheism, and multiculturalism at the root. It is no wonder why more and more Leftist politicians and groups are looking to attack Internet freedom and public speech, the joke of yesterday has become the call to action in an age polarized between Modernity and Tradition.

The attacks on the Lord of the Rings film series by Leftists demonstrates that they understand the role that fiction can have on the minds of the next generation. Stories that glorify selfless sacrifice with heroes who look and act European is something that the enemy cannot stand. Leftist media commentator John Yatt wrote before the release of the film the Twin Towers that the portrayal of the enemy Haradrim and Easterlings as “dark, slant-eyed, swarthy, broad-faced a rag-bag of non-white characteristics that could have been copied straight from a British National Party leaflet.”

What about Jewish Privilege? An Open Letter to Tim Wise

February 23, 2015 in Commentary

Double Standard

Is there a double standard in your application of privilege theory?

Dear Timothy Jacob Wise,

You’re scheduled to make a grand visit here at the Indiana University at Bloomington, and the Traditionalist Youth Network has plans to picket you. Already, this has caused an uproar on the University, with our flyers being torn down, and I am curious to see what the reaction will be when we show up to protest. Already, on the Jordan Bridge, our messages have been covered up with “IU welcomes Tim Wise!” There has been a significant reaction to the fact that one of our flyers has a classical “Jewish” stereotype with a mask on, saying this is “anti-Semitic.”

I personally didn’t have a role in spreading these flyers, nor have any particular interest in spreading them. I do however; wish to ask you a simple question. Why, if you are ideologically consistent, not renounce, or even discuss the notion of “Jewish Privilege?” When you and other academics argue against so-called “white privilege,” “cisnormativity,” “straight privilege” and the like, there is never a discussion of “Jewish privilege.” Jewish privilege, in it’s quantitative (in terms of raw statistics which demonstrate Jewish influence) and qualitative (in terms of the contradictory reactions to various actions when committed by Jews vs Non-Jews) form is never discussed. If it is discussed, it is always to be scoffed at and dismissed.

Becoming a Legionnaire: Prayer and Fasting

February 21, 2015 in Commentary

"The only hope of salvation from the delusions and the heresies, the innovations and the traps of wicked people and of the devil is prayer, repentance and humility." -Elder Joseph of Vatopaidi

“The only hope of salvation from the delusions and the heresies, the innovations and the traps of wicked people and of the devil is prayer, repentance and humility.” -Elder Joseph of Vatopaidi

The journey to become a warrior for the Faith begins with the man or woman conquering the interior passions. Just as the last entry in this series discussed working towards physical health and physical fitness, one of the most important steps on the walk of Faith and becoming a Legionnaire is embracing the importance of prayer and fasting in our everyday lives. Living life without frequent prayer and fasting is like going into battle without your sword or your armor. Both prayer and fasting are the fundamentals of the Christian life and give us the strength, courage and dedication to face all Satanic opposition both corporeal and incorporeal.

When the Apostles found themselves unable to cast a demon out of a possessed man they came to Christ who was able to free the man from the Satanic affliction he was suffering from. The Apostles questioned Christ as to why they were unable to do the exorcism and Christ told them in Matthew 17:21 that “this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

The role of the physical body in regards to the supernatural and incorporeal element of our lives and our struggle cannot be underestimated. When you train the body through self discipline and develop a strong prayer life and one where you are free from gluttony, drunkenness and the other afflictions of the flesh, you are strengthened spiritually and physically to be able to be a warrior for Christ and for His Church.

St. Gregory Palamas said that “The outward man perishes through fasting and self-control, but the more he does so, the more the inward man is renewed.” The outward man is the face that we all present to the world. We all try to one degree or another to fit in to the world around us and find a way to synthesize our beliefs and values with living in what can only be called a Satanic and depraved society.

Taking the Bread Pill: Christianity and Neo-Reaction

February 17, 2015 in Commentary

Blue or Red Pill? Take the Bread Pill!Nobody can agree what to call what’s going on in the darker corners of the Internet, but something’s definitely afoot. Call it Dark Enlightenment, New Right, Alternative Right, Neo-Reaction, “Red Pill”, or whatever, a nascent social and political movement is percolating among Millennials which is a radical departure from mainstream “controlled” system politics. It’s a community which mercilessly rounds up and slaughters entire herds of sacred cattle in search of perennial truths rooted in scientific fact and sacred tradition.

Equality? Absurd! Democracy? Get real! Freedom? It’s a trap! There’s been a radicalization and polarization of the political landscape in the youngest demographic, one where Social Justice Warriors have taken all the Enlightenment, anti-“fascist”, and post-Modern rhetoric of contemporary machine politics to their untenable logic extreme while a less vocal and more underground opposition has gone in the other direction, questioning the very foundations of the “matrix” of ideas we’ve been fed in school, in the news media, and in popular culture.
