Glorious. I especially love the filter that they used. It screams #FutureFash and because of one thing above all else:

A E S T H E T I C S

The symbology, the suggestive voice-over and the that sweet vaporwave Dust theme playing through the video captures the Aryan soul’s Faustian longing for infinite space…

I reached out to Skydas to pick their mind, and they agreed to answer some questions. Enjoy:

Your video shows you tagging, why did you decide to start doing street art?

You can’t ignore something you see everyday on your way to work or school. Whenever you see something symbolic written on a wall, you can’t help but to give it a thought or two, it enters and stays in your sub-conscious for some time. So that’s what we’re going for, to spread whatever message we have to spread, to make people think or move them emotionally.

It’s also great fun, who wouldn’t like roaming the streets with a buddy at night, drawing on walls? Of course there’s also the factor of advertising our group, reaching people through their emotions. Let’s not forget that doing street art is great footage to use, as you can see it’s our most popular video yet. We also take in to account the property that we draw on, we avoid doing any street art on buildings or sights of cultural importance or great value.

What does your symbol symbolize?

It’s a stylized version of one of our national symbols – the columns of Gediminas (Gediminaičių stulpai). I think it accurately represents one of the core beliefs of fascism and our group – The modernization of the old so that it would live on in times of globalization.

There is no certain belief what the symbol itself means, it might be an old depiction of a sacred altar, or a balto-slavic symbol used for trade.

It was used by one of our ruling dynasties, originally as a personal insignia of Gediminas.

What do you mean by A E S T H E T I C S?

Aesthetics are very important to every movement, we’re about quality, not quantity, thus we must present ourselves like decent people. We reject delving in to sub-culture and isolating ourselves from society.

Mind giving me a quick summary about what message you’re trying to get across?

We’re a youth group of fascists and national-socialists, we mustn’t talk about long term goals as it’s pointless in our current situation. So what we’re currently trying to do is bring up a new generation through attracting the youth and educating them, providing them with the redpill.

What do you think the future of Europe holds?

We can not be sure what the future holds, yet the direction Europe is going is evidently self-destructive. Immigrants and simple minded people are not the enemy, they are merely a tool, our true enemy are the white traitors who are responsible for the problems Europe faces today.

Do you see a reawakening in Europe coming soon or are things going to get much worse?

Things are gonna get worse as much as they need to, the system cannot sustain itself at this rate, the European people are gonna snap eventually. It has gotten so bad, that even science is censored and is considered taboo. You can judge yourself what fate Europe awaits. Matters usually get the worst right before the breaking point and they are getting worse and worse quite fast these days.

Aesthetics of the Resurgent Right is a really good topic, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on that.

It’s part of modernizing the old, so that it would be effective in fighting globalism, this includes most aspects of culture, including contemporary fads. Let’s face it, you can’t take someone seriously who has oily long hair, lots of piercings on their face, and just looks very abnormal in general. We are not aiming to attract such people, rather we’re aiming to attract more modern people who do not isolate themselves from society.

Thanks for the interview, Skydas. I abused that replay button. Keep up the good work.

AI Academic Interview Series 9: Putin against the Atlanticists

AI Academic Interview 9: Putin against the Atlanticists

Russian geopolitics in all its intricacies. Vincent Law explains the Ukrainian situation, the 2008 war with Georgia, and political swordplay in Moscow. What is Putin doing to build Russian civil culture? He has to deal with an aggressive media, US-funded “protest” groups, and the corruption of his own officials.

Vince also discusses The Saker Theory: Putin’s coming purge of Russia’s pro-American faction, the so-called “Atlanticists.” What should the Alt-right’s position on Russia be? Are any groups in Russia our natural allies?

When you need to know about Russia, you can’t trust faggots like Anne Applebaum. But you can count on AI to bring you the most succulent morsels of Kremlinology.

Spengler’s Last Prophecy

Grimey, gaunt-eyed throngs are groping their way across the world. Europe–the object of their longing–offers all. The black and brown masses, hearing her Siren-call, know that they will be welcomed. Europe’s ancient populations are tired. They see no reason to resist.

Such is the premise of Camp of the Saints, the 1973 novel of Jean Raspail. It has rightly received a lot of attention lately, as swarms of Syrians and Somalis, Nigerians and Sudanese, Eritreans and Iraqis begin to infest the Old Continent’s cities. But Raspail was not the first to imagine an ignominious and anticlimactic end to Western Civilization in its homeland. Forty years earlier, another had imagined the same scenario.

Not only imagined, but predicted. In 1933 Oswald Spengler, Germany’s most celebrated philosopher of history, published his last major work The Hour of Decision. Spengler is known primarily for Decline of the West, his two-volume, thousand-page meditation on the meaning of history. But perhaps he should be better known for Hour of Decision, because in it, he prophesies many aspects of the current crisis.

The Hour of Decision, at 230 pages in English, is much shorter than Spengler’s magnum opus. Decline of the West explains why and how the West has reached its spiritual and cultural peak, and will remain largely stagnant for the next few centuries, before it collapses totally. Hour of Decision is more specific. It describes what exactly will happen as a result of this inner decay. Continue reading Spengler’s Last Prophecy

RED DAWN 14: Asian Immivasion

RED DAWN 14: Asian Immivasion

Even model minorities bring social costs: ethnic nepotism, test scams, and market manipulation. East Asians and Indians can be more dangerous than they look. Ritter and Singh compare high- and low-achieving minorities, and learn that the Yellow Peril is real. Hunker down for the Asian immivasion!

Education Realist on cheating in China

On SAT scams

Radishmag on Slavery, probably the Alt-Right/Dark Enlightenment’s premier takedown of “The Narrative” on all things black.

UPDATE: WaPo article about a “Virginia Woman” who made a habit of buying high-end handbags and returning fake ones. An further example of Singh’s point about the deleterious effects of high-functioning minorities on social trust.

Book Review: Heart of Europe, A History of the Holy Roman Empire

Flip through a historical atlas of Europe. Starting at AD 100, there is only Rome. North of the Danube circle dozens of obscure Latinate names designating Germanic tribes.

Fast forward 900 years and a vaguely recognizable Europe seems to be taking shape. France, England, Poland are all there, albeit a bit contorted. If your curiosity was piqued, you could easily find an entire book, dedicated to the history of any one of those countries, including its early development:

On that same map, c. 1000, you would also find a quite novel political entity–The Holy Roman Empire. It dominates central Europe, what is now Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, northern Italy and France’s eastern borderlands. But now try to find out more. Where can you turn?

Sure, there are general histories of Medieval Europe. There are also histories of Germany that cover its pre-unification metamorphosis. But rare are books dedicated to the Holy Roman Empire explicitly, although there are a few. Most recently came Joachim Whaley’s two-part Germany and the Holy Roman Empire (2012). Whaley’s book is packed with information and analysis, which is exciting for history buffs and academics. But those with a more casual interest are out of luck.

That changed last month. Heart of Europe, A History of the Holy Roman Empire by Oxford professor Peter H. Wilson at last filled the gap. It is a readable, non-specialist book on the “other” Roman Empire. But you will be disappointed if you are looking for an enthralling, narrative history. While readable, Wilson’s book fails to bring much order from the chaos that was the Holy Roman Empire. Continue reading Book Review: Heart of Europe, A History of the Holy Roman Empire
