Julius Evola – The Decline of Heroism (Video)

It is something of a surprise the regularity with which I’m actually able to produce these. It was not planned that this latest video would coincide with my Social Matter article on the archetype of the warrior, but a pleasant coincidence is always welcome.   Taken from his book The Metaphysics of War, this chapter…

Understanding The Warrior Archetype

It’s been too long since my last article at Social Matter, and thus I hope my latest is of interest to all. It comes off the back of a conversation I was having with various other contributors concerning where the warrior type is situated in a given society. Before this question can even be unpacked,…

Max Scheler’s ‘Ressentiment’

A recommendation from fellow Social Matter regular, Thomas Barghest, I had never heard of Scheler before. He was a German-born author who made huge contributions to the study of phenomenology, and to a lesser extent ethics, who won the praise of Martin Heidegger.

I joined the now slightly world famous Millennial Woes for 2…

Through The Eye Of The Nadir

Perhaps it is best to round off another year with something of a sobering contemplation, not a black pill, but the transposition of a theoretical framework and an experiential realization. For a long time, possibly since I began this journey in 2014, I had never held the level of confidence in schemes that some others…

The Russian Moment

Once again it is my honor to be published by the esteemed Katehon think tank. This is more than a summary of the past month’s events as they pertain to Russia, but also a broadside directive on how Russia should move strategically to advance the goal of ensuring its security vis-a-vis Europe. This requires an…
