Will be a century of iron and storms. It will not resemble those harmonious futures predicted up to the 1970s. It will not be the global village prophesied by Marshall MacLuhan in 1966, or Bill Gates’ planetary network, or Francis Fukuyama’s end of history: a liberal global civilization directed by a universal state.
The Third Age of European Civilization commences, in a tragic acceleration of the historical process, with the Treaty of Versailles and end of the civil war of 1914-18: the catastrophic twentieth century. Four generations were enough to undo the labor of more than forty. Europe fell victim to its own tragic Prometheanism, its own opening to the world and universalism, oblivious of all ethnic solidarity.
The Fourth Age of European civilization begins today. It will be the Age of rebirth or perdition. The twenty-first century will be for this civilization, the fateful century, the century of life or death.
Let us cultivate the pessimistic optimism of Nietzsche. “There is no more order to conserve; it is necessary to create a new one.” Will the beginning of the twenty-first century be difficult? Are all the indicators in the red? So much the better. They predicted the end of history after the collapse of the USSR? We wish to speed its return: thunderous, bellicose, and archaic. Islam resumes its wars of conquest. China and India wish to become superpowers. And so forth. The twenty-first century will be placed under the double sign of Mars, the god of war, and of Hephaestus, the god who forges swords, the master of technology and the chthonic fires. This century will be that of the metamorphic rebirth of Europe, like the Phoenix, or of its disappearance as a historical civilization and its transformation into a cosmopolitan and sterile Luna Park.
The beginning of the twenty-first century will be the despairing midnight of the world of which Hölderlin spoke. But it is always darkest before the dawn. Let us prepare our children for war. Let us educate our youth, be it only a minority, as a new aristocracy.
Today we need more than morality. We need hypermorality, the Nietzschean ethics of difficult times. When one defends one’s people, i.e., one’s own children, one defends the essential. Then one follows the rule of Agamemnon and Leonidas but also of Charles Martel: what prevails is the law of the sword, whose bronze or steel reflects the glare of the sun.

The 21st Century hasn’t been a century of iron and storms so far, but it is early days yet.
I don’t actually think the 21st Century will be the fateful century that determines whether the White race survives or goes extinct. I think that would be the 22nd Century or even the 23rd Century (at least the first half of it). Maybe I’ve got it completely wrong but my reasoning is based on the fact that mass non-white immigration into our countries won’t kill us. Becoming a minority in countries that were once ours won’t kill us. What will kill us is the White birth rate being below replacement level so that each generation becomes smaller and smaller until there are no Whites left. But that process could take 250 years before we go extinct completely I estimate. The other factor that could bring about our extinction sooner rather than later is if non-whites take to killing us off one by one as they become the majority in countries that were formerly ours. So I think we could go extinct in the 22nd Century at the earliest. I could be wrong though.
It’s because you have not studied Austrian economics that cannot imagine the convergence of catastrophes starting in our century—possibly in this decade! (today, for example, the Fed has announced that interest rates could stay at zero forever).
Yes, you’re wrong. Whites are the source of the creation of wealth that feeds the rest, including the Jews. So wherever the whites retreat to, the non-whites will follow them there. If there is a majority of whites in a country, then that is a tolerable burden. But a tipping point will be reached where the parasitic feeding rapidly reaches a frenzy, where the rioting is no longer sporadic but continuous and basic services start to break down.
Faye outlines a compelling vision to the immigration problem in the last chapter of his book “Archeo-Futurism.” This is presented in the form of a utopian dream, and should be seen in part as a reaction against the doom and gloom despair of the French New Right. I might also add that fiction has the added utility of allowing a French writer to advocate more extreme solutions and avoid hate speech laws.
The basic narrative is straightforward enough, if short on details. Sometime in the mid-twenty first century, due to a series of environmental disasters and resource shortages, Europe is plunged into a series of internecine wars. America is gripped in an endless series of race riots and is unable to help. Into this chaos, Russia sends an army of liberators to restore order.
What follows afterwards is reminiscent of the more visceral moments of William Pierce’s Turner Diaries. Native Europeans regain a sense of their identity. A Nietzschean hypermorality is realized. The vast majority of non-whites are summarily liquidated over the course of a few months. The handful of non-white survivors are forcibly shipped en masse to the remote island of Madagascar.
A new European Imperium is created out of the ashes of the Old Europe. Picture an empire with explicit inequality enshrined in law, an agrarian paradise with a small bureaucratic elite lording over a continent of hobbits. Faye is obviously borrowing heavily from the American writer Frances Parker Yockey.
Curiously, Faye is dismissive of America, seeing it as a separate entity–culturally, spiritually, historically–from Europe. Indeed, America is seen as an occupying power, imposing its grotesque lifestyle and values on Europeans. It could even be said that a new European Renaissance requires the death of everything American, including America itself. I sense a certain amount of schadenfreude in Faye when he describes an American continent in a state of mass starvation with race riots in every major city.
But who can blame Faye in wanting to write off America as a lost cause? The WNs have a far more nebulous ephemeral definition of identity than their European ancestors. (ie. If a man gets a stamp certifying his whiteness then he is my brother is how your average WN reasons). Then there is the feminism, the patriotards, the rock music, the culture, the greed, the degeneracy, the conservatives…the problems never seem to end.
Faye is dead wrong, however, on the Jewish question. He regards the Jews as a part of the European social fabric and is a rabid supporter of Israel. Just like Jared Taylor, Faye believes that European Jewry will come around to his way of thinking. Indeed, Jews are a well integrated minority in Faye’s Imperium. This is simply unacceptable.
Just as problematic is Faye’s biological concept of a European. It’s clear in his writings that he makes no distinction between North and South, Mediterranean or Nordic, Germanic or Slav. Faye would have you believe that very limited racial mixing has taken place in Spain, Portugal, and Italy. Just close your eyes and pretend that all the Europeans living from Lisbon to Vladisvostok are pure White. Of course many WNs share in this delusion. In Europe, the sand nigger from Malta, Norman Lowell and the Finn, Kai Murros, peddles similar nonsense.
What to make of Faye? I am rather ambivalent here. Not a good writer or a bad writer. His ideas need to be taken with a ton of salt.
This is one of the most exasperating POVs of many WNsts. While I expect this sort of delusion among Meds (I myself look like a Med) one could expect that the more Aryan white would embrace nordicism—but no! His egalitarian programming is so strong that he is ready to sacrifice his race for “sensitive” motives.
I excerpted this Faye text for the sidebar’s bottom long ago (I believe the full speech was delivered at an AmRen conference) because it’s the most lyric and inspiring text I’ve found in the net. But Faye’s flaws make me repeat that the real lighthouse of our days is the late William Pierce. His Diaries and Who We Are are the perfect antidote to Faye’s fiction and non-fiction flaws regarding Jews and the mudblood issue.
After the real Nazis no single European mind has produced something as searing, Nietzschean and straightforward as Pierce’s legacy. There’s a quantum leap between the current WNsts and their degeneracy you mention and the man that we might start calling Uncle Bill.
