The Essence of Time: A Study in Post-Marxism

Another essay for Social Matter. In this piece I discuss the neo-communist outfit Essence of Time, taking a look at the Russian group’s manifesto and discerning how so-called ‘radical left’ thinking is evolving in some respects, but remaining largely the same in others, anchored to failed ideas and incomplete versions of history that leave gaping…

The Sensible Notion of Prejudice

Every human behaviour has a reason for its existence, even if this reason may not be apparent. This doesn’t necessarily make every one of those behaviours desirable and moral at every point in a person’s life. It has been acknowledged that babies are selfish and greedy, but this makes sense when one considers that a…

Schuon, Luther, and the Eternal Calvinist

Let us approach the question of Protestantism with a mindfulness of its differentiation, an understanding of its gravity in history, and an open mind to what merits it may conceal behind a disposition that has been rightly recognized as a challange by most Reactionary thinkers.

Hegemony in the liberal form is the ultimate form of humiliation, for it at once condemns a history and at the…

I Was Wrong

It takes the better part of oneself to know when to be humble, and indeed in the past 48 hours, I and many others have been humbled to the core. Last night, US President Donald Trump launched an attack against the sovereign nation of Syria, and while we do not yet have reports of what…

The Curious Case of Louise Mensch

Happy to announce my first piece published with Geopolitika.ru, a little perspective on everybody’s favourite anti-Russian wack-job, Louise Mensch. Her past is boring, but her present is completely off-the-wall. From writing chic-lit to uncovering the Nazi roots of Theodor Herzl, there really is nobody quite like Mensch. She’s a cut above the rest when it…
