After the Russian Civil War had broken out, a pro-German wing of the Russian White movement appeared in contrast to the pro-Entente sentiment of the mainstream Russian Whites. It must have been difficult for these Russian nationalists to forgive General Ludendorff and the Germans for aiding the Bolshevik Revolution and overseeing the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Yet, in these outspoken Russians’ eyes, Ludendorff and the Germans had only been doing their jobs compared to the Western liberal powers, with their pro-Bolshevik banks and their corrupt negligence of their Russian ally’s logistical needs.
There are two kinds of rights: Political rights and folk rights. Political rights are relative; they rise, fall, rise again, and fall again like waves. Folk rights are cold, hard, and undying. Only folk rights are God-given, and therefore defended. Political rights are won or lost in the fight of the state of nature, and therefore granted.
History furnishes examples of the distinction between folk rights and political rights. The Romans, having conquered a nation, either annihilated it or, having decided that option unnecessary, entirely respected its folk rights. Romanian historian Nicolae Iorga exaggerated the extent to which the Ottoman Empire was “Roman” in this sense, but it is true that the Turks were not usually very interested in mutilating the subjugated Balkan cultures. One can observe this in the way Bulgaria is still Bulgaria, far more than the once-mighty Western nations are what they essentially are. The difference between folk rights and political rights can even be seen in more modern epochs. Louisiana was the most humane and enlightened state in the historical development of the American Union, because it was the only one to respect all national life — even that of the slaves.

The Real Turan: Confusions and Clarifications
An abundance of archeological evidence shows us that the ancient Indo-Europeans, or Aryans in older writings, originated on the Pontic Steppe, which stretches from eastern Romania to Central Asia, but especially in present-day Ukraine and southwestern Russia. They were the first in human history to domesticate the horse.[i] They vastly expanded from Western Europe to Western China, though their direct and permanent influence in the east may have more or less stopped at India. (The extent of their influence on China remains a bit of a mystery.)[ii] Continue reading
In truth, there is no such thing as sexual politics. Even the New York Times has recently been forced to confess this. The iron law of the friend-enemy distinction precludes any such thing as sex politics or “gender politics,” for the simple reason that it is impossible to kill all the men on earth or all the women on earth. To even picture such a thing is nothing but a sick masturbatory fantasy, which is in fact what any “gender politics” really is.
“It is astounding to see how inventiveness grows in nature when existence is at stake. This applies to both defense and pursuit. For every missile, an anti-missile is devised. At times, it all looks like sheer braggadocio. This could lead to a stalemate or else to the moment when the opponent says, ‘I give up’, if he does not knock over the chessboard and ruin the game. Darwin did not go that far; in this context, one is better off with Cuvier’s theory of catastrophes.” -Ernst Jünger, ALADDIN’S PROBLEM
It has often been argued of great Continental scientists, such as Goethe and Mircea Eliade, that since their methods were not in the Anglo-Saxon tradition, they must not have had methods at all. No matter how many times a scholar debunks such nonsense, those initiated into the cult of Anglophone science continue to believe it, just as they will continue to venerate the brave joystick warriors of Arthur Harris. Our subject is a foremost example of this tendency, as he has been mistreated by our execrable history of science books in the Anglosphere.
