Christmas and the Yuletide: Light in the Darkness

Like many children, some of my most vivid early memories center around the Christmas season. Preparations always began immediately after Thanksgiving. My mother and I would drag the dusty boxes of decorations down from the attic, while my father ascended onto our rooftop to string up the lights. A few weeks later we would go … Continue reading Christmas and the Yuletide: Light in the Darkness

Santa Claus, Man of the Right

An interesting incident occurred in Sicily recently: a Roman Catholic bishop was accused of telling a group of schoolchildren Santa Claus does not exist. The Church has since apologized for these remarks, explaining to outraged parents that the cleric’s intention was direct children away from the consumerism of contemporary Christmas celebrations and towards veneration of … Continue reading Santa Claus, Man of the Right

Militant supporter of National Socialism, foundational figure of Esoteric Hilterism, the iron maiden known to academia – insofar as she is known at all – as “Hitler’s Priestess”: dissociating Savitri Devi from her fanatical loyalty to Hitler’s Germany seems as futile as denazifying the Führer himself. Beyond its futility, what purpose … Continue reading Denazifying Savitri Devi?

Michaelmas: Of Harvest Festivals and Holy Warriors

Come out, 'tis now September, the hunters' moon's begun,And through the wheaten stubble we hear the frequent gun;The leaves are turning yellow, and fading into red,While the ripe and bearded barley is hanging down its head.

But after a flurry of youthful idealism I mostly set these considerations aside and settled into a fairly comfortable compromise with the status quo. However, Jef Costello’s recent … Continue reading Politics of Meat: A Ecofascist Perspective
