New Culture New Right by Michael O'Meara is really excellent as an introduction to French New Right ideas. I often tell people it's the best place to start

Faye's position on the JQ is a complex subject. For a detailed analysis of Faye and the JQ i would recommend Michael O'Meara's books *New Culture, New Right* & *Guillaume Faye and the Battle of Europe*

He modifies that position quite a bit in *Convergence of Catastrophes* and his later books. Anti-americanism is deeply engrained in Alain de Benoist and GRECE. Faye's more recent stance is actually distinctly friendly toward America in comparison

Benoist's critique of America is essentially justified and extremely valuable IMO, even if we might want to dismiss aspects of it

Very true. Also, I don't think we want to be overly preoccupied with assigning moral blame to jews. If you let parasites manipulate and subvert your culture you can't really blame them for doing that. Jews are just acting in accordance with their nature and their collective interests. We need to look at the reasons why our culture has been unwilling to do the same. Faye and other French New Right thinkers are extremely useful in this regard.

I also think it's worth emphasizing that if you are singularly focused on the JQ then you are probably not going to like Faye. I think most of us will find that Faye's approach to the JQ has its problems. While critiques of Faye from this perspective are valid, i would recommend people think about why he takes the positions he does rather than just continually point at the JQ because trust me that will get tiresome. I only say this because I've noticed a lot of discussions of Faye end up going in this direction.

I definitely think a weekly voice chat would be good

Faye is talking about Benoist and co. in that quote. The alt lite is too dumb to be accused of anything like "intellectually pretentious discourse" lol

Monday nights are best for me

2018-01-21 18:06:12 UTC [Literature Club #general]  

I could do it tonight, but would have to leave again at 9 EST

2018-01-21 18:06:36 UTC [Literature Club #general]  

I like Monday

I second the Carl Schmitt recommendation. *Concept of the Political* is definitely one of the most essential works of political philosophy

I'd like to flaunt my Spengler collection. One of my projects since last summer has been to get my hands on everything by or about Spengler in English. So far i've read *The Decline of the West 1 & 2, Man and Technics, Selected Essays, Aphorisms, The Hour of Decision*, and the Thoughts & Perspectives volume. To briefly sum up my thoughts, i'll say that *The Decline* is an unparalleled masterpiece. It provides a visionary and provocative framework for examining culture, history, geopolitics, religion, art, and life itself. It may also be worth mentioning that for those interested in Yockey, you kind of have to read Spengler first for *Imperium* to make much sense. I say this as a Yockey advocate. If you want to check out Spengler i suggest simply diving into *The Decline*. His other works are best viewed as extended footnotes to his magnum opus, although *Man and Technics* and *Prussianism and Socialism* are probably effective as standalone texts
