Rising from the Ruins

Ur ruinerna

Finally arriving in the mailbox, “Rising from the Ruins” (Ur ruinerna) is a beacon of hope for Northern and Western Europe and the West in large, as these bleak days that are being heralded with jumbled and insignificant words are falling more and more on deaf and indifferent ears: “Progress”, “Democracy”, “Diversity”, “Open Society”; but which in reality are euphemisms for Kali Yuga or the Twilight of the Gods, Ragnarök.

Joakim Andersen is the head contributor for the Swedish New Right, Alt-Right – or whatever label you prefer – think-tank Motpol, (Counter pole) and a chief figure in the growing Swedish underground political and cultural sphere which is represented, aside from Motpol, by the publishing house Arktos, Logik Förlag and many more Swedish alternative media outlets.
He and the Motpol gang have committed themselves to the re-invigoration of the Swedish culture and political sphere. They describe one of their chief goals as follows: “Lifting forth a spectrum of culture left out from an increasingly narrower and infantile public discourse.”

Being a former Marxist with a keen eye for the history of ideas, Andersen has delved and shed light on the principles of Traditionalism and the New Right school of thought brought forth by the likes of Alain de Benoist and the French think-tank GRECE, (Groupement de recherche et d’études pour la civilisation européenne), chiefly responsible for introducing these ideas to Swedes seeking to find their way out of the mirage of Liberalism. He continues this admirable trade in his book debut.

Just like the eponymous title suggest, “Rising from the Ruins” proclaims “The End is Nigh”, that the liberal order of the West is doomed to perish from the internal contradictions and crises that it has afflicted upon itself via mass immigration, multicultural politics at the expense of native cultures, cultural and spiritual neglect, and unprecedented demographic change, (Progress, according to Liberals).
But as they say about “blessings in disguise”, this means that from the metaphysical ruins, not any physical rubble (with the exception of Detroit and the growing European suburbs), a new type of world is taking form, at least in the form of ideas and street activism.
“Rising from the Ruins” examines the growth of the Alt-Right phenomena and its similarities and distinctions with the European New Right. It looks at the Donald Trump phenomena, (albeit before his shift into the same-old interventionist and Zionist pandering). The book highlights a number of thinkers from which the New Right/Alt Right have reaped ideas from: Julius Evola with his Riding the Tiger, Martin Heidegger with Daesein, Ezra Pound with Usura, René Guenon with the Crisis of the Modern World, Samuel T. Francis with his Foxes and Wolves analogy of power struggle, Aleksandr Dugin with Eurasianism, Guillaume Faye with Archeo-Futurism, Antonio Gramsci with Cultural Hegemony; the seed to Cultural Marxism, Hans Blüher with the Männerbund; a fraternity of Men keeping (or re-invigorating) the flame of Civilization, (i.e. the Monks after the fall of Rome laying down the groundwork for Christian Europe), as well as highlighting the intellectual, cultural and social movements: Casa Pound; (the Männerbund), the Eurasian movement, Génération identitarie, etcetera.

Joakim Andersen proves himself an accomplished summarizer. His wide encyclopedic knowledge of the intellectual history of the Right and the various movements mentioned above is impressive to say the least. Drawing inspiration from Spengler, Evola and many others, the book does not merely linger on the political, but on the spiritual and cultural sphere, from a possible re-Christianization to a revival of European heathenism  a sargued by Alain de Benoist and others of the French New Right. The optimism one feels while reading the book makes it stand out from all the echoes of defeatism and short-term strategy that characterizes the black-pillers. Andersen allows the thinkers and ideas to speak for themselves without muffles, very seldom sharing personal thoughts or insights on the issues.

It must be noted, Andersen stresses, that the nations of Europe differs and thus one ideology or movement in a particular country may not succeed in another. The Identitarian movement in France and Germany being a good example. Both countries are unified states, composed of several historical “nations” or tribes with strong sense of “local patriotism”. In the case of France, we have the Celts of Brittany, the German heritage of Alsace, and in Germany, the state of Bavaria. In Sweden, where the nation state has gone further and local identities been swallowed up in the homogenization process – the exceptions being the provincial identities of Dalarna, Skåne and Gotland – the Identitarian movement have not picked up here as great as in France. Likewise, Casa Pound, being a product of Italian sensibility and cultural formation might prove difficult in exporting to other countries that lacks that some vigor and thumos that Italians have stored. Possibly the incomplete and non-dogmatic Fourth Political Theory could blend well with the different historical, cultural and religious backgrounds of respective European nations and peoples.

The English edition is under way, and I can highly recommend it for its spiritually and life affirming importance. Time is due to learn how to ride the tiger through all the rubbles and funeral pyres.

Personal thoughts on the Stockholm attack

7 april

Pedestrians exiting Stockholm City via Skanstullsbron

 

As clouds grew across the sky, the City was filled with the sounds of sirens and the streets were clamped by a thousand pedestrians, exiting the city as in a great exodus. Trains and busses recalled, cinemas and theatre productions closed down, military guarding the gate to the Royal Palace, and the Riksdag (Parliament) sealed and entrapping our “representatives” behind their walls of power. It was not business as usual for the people of Stockholm.

On that day four people were killed and fifteen injured in an attack mirroring the Nice Attack on the 14th of June. Using a hijacked truck as his weapon of choice, an Uzbekistani ISIS-sympathizer took to the crowded shopping center of Drottninggatan, trying to run down as many as he could. However, unlike with previous cases, the perpetrator was not shot on sight, but instead managed to flee all the way up north to Märsta before getting caught by the Swedish authorities.

Despite warnings passed to the Swedish authorities from the Uzbekistani authorities via another Western country, the Swedish police could not verify the information.
Despite being caught in 2015 between the Syrian-Turkish border in an attempt to join ISIS, he was sent back to Sweden.
Despite this tragedy brought about by a crippling and maniacal immigration policy for 40 years, worsened by the Migrant Crisis, the Social Democratic party along with its youth organisation SSU has called for increased immigration, and the leading Feminist (Cultural Marxist) party F! (Feminist Initiative) is calling for open borders and dismantlement of the already pitiful Swedish Armed Forces.
Despite all the bloodshed and loss of lives, we hear calls of “love” and “understanding” and “protection of the free Open Society” that people like George Soros is so preoccupied with cultivating.

The event has shown that Stockholm is a most vulnerable place for these types of attacks and a prime target for future attacks. Its air of openness and humanitarian cosmopolitanism is not a power field dreamt up from Asimovian Science Fiction, that is capable of providing a protective shield against Terrorism or “the dark forces” as many of the secular establishment likes to term the Jihadi extremism or the anti-liberal tidal wave. Whatever the future has in store, the Liberal, welfare state Sweden is decomposing at a faster rate. Will it’s future be that of a Third-world country or a Rebirth?

UPDATE 8/5
The casualties have increased with one person: a 66 year old woman with involvement in the “environmental” Green Party (Miljöpartiet), that advocates for a sustainable future and the destruction of national borders. Two things that go hand in hand.
