We first floated the idea of building a Traditional community in the Spanish Mission article, after discovering that an abandoned village in Galicia was being given away for free. Two Legionnaires have since visited Galicia in order to conduct some initial reconnaissance and ascertain the viability of establishing a mission in Galicia.
Brother Antony and Brother Paul met the Mayor and explained our proposal and saw the abandoned village for themselves. In addition they explored the countryside of an ancient kingdom and visited the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, resting place of Santiago Matamoros, Apostle and Moorslayer.
“St. James the Moorslayer, one of the most valiant saints and knights the world ever had … has been given by God to Spain for its patron and protection.”
-Cervantes, Don Quixote
Below is Brother Tony’s report of their findings.

The natural world is one of balance. When equilibrium is disturbed Nature takes corrective action to restore balance. Le Châtelier’s Principle states that when a system in equilibrium is subjected to a stress, the system will adjust in order to counteract that stress and a new equilibrium is achieved. Le Châtelier was concerned with chemistry, but his principle translates to a wider array of systems. Continue reading The Solution We Do Not Want
Arktos have recently published an English translation of Dominique Venner’s The Shock of History. Dominique Venner was a prolific writer and historian but so far little of his work has been translated into English aside from a few tantalising snippets and quotes.
Before he was a writer Venner was a soldier and political activist. He served as a paratrooper, fighting on the French loyalist side in the vicious Algerian war. Then he was a member of the dissident far-right paramilitary Organisation of the Secret Army which tried to overthrow the de Gaulle government.

One of the tentacles of the Leviathan is made up of journalists and the machinery of modern media. Journalists were once held in check by government but the modern combination of Communism and capitalism has made the media into a both a business and the propaganda arm of the ruling classes.
While the political figureheads of Western countries play out a professional wrestling sideshow for laughs and outrage, the media is firmly in the hands of the enemy who use it to mould popular opinion. Instead of being informative and reporting current events, modern journalism decides what is and isn’t news, and more tellingly, how it is presented to the public. Continue reading Journalists are the Enemy and Must be Stopped
“Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”
― H.L. Mencken
There’s a lot of cry-baby, defeatist behaviour among the various strands of the right. We are supposed to be the antithesis of the left and their Enlightenment notions. We are warriors. We conquered the world. Yet there are a many among the right who speak and act like victims.
The most abiding lesson my father taught me when I was growing up was that life isn’t fair. He’d tell it to me again and again until I understood. Problems do not go away by themselves. Crying solves nothing. Life isn’t fair. You’re supposed to learn this reactionary nugget of information early on in life. Continue reading Stop Complaining – Life Isn’t Fair
The modern Christian, with his universalist attitude is surprised to find himself under constant attack by the de-civilisational and degenerate. He cries and cries, but refuses to do anything, inviting only further attacks. Like the cuckservative, he abandons principles and finds himself with barely any religion left at all. He opened the doors of his church to everyone, and wonders why the pews are empty. Who wants to join a club that anybody can wander into? What man would want to join a tattered church that is bullied by effeminate homosexuals and doesn’t fight back?
Modern, oriental Christianity has mutated into a culture of weakness and victimhood. It teaches rights, but not responsibilities. It teaches an abdication of duty. Above all it has taught the European man to surrender, and in disgust at this the European man has deserted the church. Continue reading Sleeping Kings and the War Christ
Old Fashioned Knights in the Modern World
A guest post by Victor Vogt.
Don Quixote spent his days poring over old books on knighthood, chivalry and the fine art of war, and when the light grew dim and the candles went out he spent his nights dreaming of an era that time had no more use for. His dreams became delusions and he let himself get lost in them. By the call of destiny or madness, Don Quixote went chasing after the adventurous life of a noble knight, righting wrongs and protecting the weak, defending the honor of young maidens and upholding the codes of chivalry. More importantly, Don Quixote was preserving the noble European tradition of knighthood. Continue reading Old Fashioned Knights in the Modern World
This post will be of particular interest to our readers in Spain, of which I know we have many, but should also interest adventurous readers in Europe and those Europeans around the world who may be eyeing a return to their ancient homeland in time for the coming battle. A unique opportunity has arisen for those willing to seize it.
There is an abandoned hamlet called A Barca in the northwestern Spanish province of Galicia. It’s one of many in this part of Spain. Rural Galicia is beautiful, close to the Atlantic Ocean and the border with Portugal. It’s hilly and densely forested and marked by rivers and cliffs and canyons. Real rebel country. It’s also of cultural significance to us as it was once part of the medieval Christian kingdom of Asturias, where Pelagius won the battle of Covadonga and began the Reconquista which drove the Caliphate from Iberia.

A young boy walks across a beach with a fishing rod over his shoulder. Above him at the top of the cliffs a castle looks out over the glittering Mediterranean. He grew up on his father’s stories about the Crusaders who had defended Europe here. Those knights have been gone for centuries but their ghosts still walk the ancient halls. Continue reading A New Order, A Call to Arms
We revolt against the modern world but we are still contaminated by it. We were born into, educated by it, and must live and work within it to some degree. We recognise modernity as the problem but we are still surrounded by it and allow it space inside our heads. We are still plagued by modern ways of thinking that go against our European ethos. Our inability to solve modern problems is in part due to our inability to think outside of the modern world and the palatable options it presents to us. We need a return to the ancient, noble and heroic instead of the modern and prosaic. Continue reading De-Programming Modernism
