The End of Atlanticism

The West and the Law of Diminishing Returns

Germanic men assembled at a 'thing' - from Marcus Aurelius' column (193 AD)

Atlanticism is the belief in a single European-American worldview, as expressed in NATO and many trans-Atlantic trade agreements. But the relationship between Europe and America is far from equal. Since the American armies emerged victoriously from the Second World War, Europeans have been living as vassals, serving the interests of American capitalism.

In exchange for NATO protection,...

The Purpose of Patriarchy

Patriarchy as a Response to Natural Disaster and Sudden Population Decline

The Flood by Paul Merwart (1855-1902)

In 1900, about 1.6 billion human beings lived on Earth. One hundred years later, the human species nearly quadrupled to 6.1 billion.1 Before the end of 2020, we may pass 8 billion, adding in a single generation’s time what had once taken us thousands of years to achieve. But human populations aren’t evenly distributed across the globe. Different geographies, climates and cultures have allowed...

The Road to Self-Rule

Man's Long Climb from Serfdom to Freedom

The Pharaoh's Daughters (1886) by Edwin Long

Since the day man awoke from the wilderness, he has been pondering the question of how to live in a society with others. What we call society today emerged over five thousand years ago in ancient Mesopotamia,1 the area located between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in present-day Iraq.

But apart from rapid developments in science and technology, the basic...

Make Boys Men Again

Western Civilization's Rite of Passage

Lion Hunt (1861) by Eugène Delacroix

President Trump’s election confronted mainstream journalists with something they had never seen before: a male role model. But the damage eight years of Obama’s feminism has done to young male minds may take decades to unwind. Unlike our European forefathers who struck fear in primitive people’s hearts, today’s frightened white twenty-somethings call themselves ‘gender-fluid hipsters’ or ‘third-wave feminists’, because what they really lack is a pair of full-grown balls. If...

Millennials’ Search for Meaning

A civilization’s main export product is its constituents’ behavior, especially abroad. The West, judging by the millennial generation’s monomaniac drive to party, scouring the world’s pristine island beaches and trashing them in raves of binge drinking and electronic music, suffers more than a PR problem, but an existential crisis.

While their grandfathers, and great-grandfathers, unflinchingly stormed the beaches of Normandy...

America: A Prophecy

Can the United States Avoid World War III?

Washington Crossing the Delaware (1851) by Emanuel Leutze

“Fiery the Angels rose, and as they rose deep thunder roll’d Around their shores, indignant burning with the fires of Orc” — William Blake

No civilization lasts forever. The Etruscan civilization vanished. The Roman Empire collapsed. The Ancient Egyptians disappeared. But if no civilization lasts forever, in the...

A Civilization Run by Slaves

Warning the West of Its Hypocrisy

At the height of the Roman empire, nearly 40% of Italy’s population consisted of slaves. Slaves represented almost 15% of the entire empire. But as the increasing cost of warfare against ever more enemies on either side of its borders rapidly depleted its reserves, Rome’s slave-run civilization eventually collapsed, because it could no longer afford to feed them.

Today, modern Western civilization takes pride in having abolished slavery, yet it...

Oil for Immigration

What the 1975 Strasbourg Resolution Meant to Europeans

Islam in Europe: better move to Eastern Europe, Finland, Iceland, Ireland or Portugal

The infamous Resolutions of Strasbourg of June 7th, 1975, ratified by the former European Economic Community (EEC), sold the continent’s open borders to the Arabs in exchange for oil. Consequently, the EEC had traded the future of all (present) five hundred million native Europeans for that of Muslim immigrants.

The Resolution was printed in Eurabia magazine no. 2, of July 1975, and...

The Fading Song of the West

O my Hiawatha!

An illustration by Frederick Remington for the poem, 1889.

“O my Hiawatha! All your prayers are heard in heaven, For you pray not like the others; Not for greater skill in hunting, Not for greater craft in fishing, Not for triumph in the battle, Nor renown among the warriors, But for profit of the people, For advantage of the nations.”

These lines were taken from the epic poem The Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, written in 1855. That year, in a time when political...

Revolt of the Oppressed

Patriots Will Defeat Progressive Appeasement Politics

Trojan Horse, Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo (18th century)

“Faith in a holy cause is to a considerable extent a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves,” wrote American longshoreman Eric Hoffer.[ibib]228[/ibib] (p. 14) Still today, people spoiled by wealth prefer to escape reality, rather than having to admit migrants threaten their civilization. The faith in progressive appeasement politics has become a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves.

Easy and Hard Life

Hoffer, a simple and poor worker, gained fame with his insights...
