Leonid Savin, Fellow of the Centre of Conservative Research at Moscow State University, argues for the renunciation of (neo)Liberalism, and the revision of old political categories. He argues we should develop a new political ideology - The Fourth Political Theory - agreeing with Alain de Benoist, The French philosopher, for being right in remarking that the positive reconsideration of collective identity is necessary; for our foe is not “the other”, but an ideology which destroys all identities. Leonid sees the need for a Fourth Wave of globalisation: the re-establishment of (every) People with eternal values.
Gerard Batten, UKIP MEP, spoke to the Traditional Britain Group at their annual Traditional Britain Dinner at Charing Cross Hotel, London. Gregory Lauder-Frost, Vice-President of the TBG presided. Gerard Batten gave an informative talk addressing the numerous attacks on the British Constitution, laws and ancient institutions, especially from the European Union and Westminster itself. The evening was enjoyed by all and as always the majority of the guests were under 30, an encouraging direction for the traditionalist movement.
Classicist KENNETH ROYCE MOORE delves into one of the oldest and most important ingredients of Western civilisation. Spartan tradition, both real and idealised, had a profound influence on such notable philosophers as Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Diogenes the Cynic, Zeno of Cyttium and others [EDITOR’S NOTE: Zeno of Cyttium (c 340-265 BC) was the founder of Stoicism]. This is especially the case in terms of those who speculatively explored political theory and that which we would today refer to as utopianism and, by extension, the subsequent Western traditions that derive from their philosophies.
Ludwig James writes about Britain's damanaged Institutions. 'This malevolent Ideology promoted by our institutions is influential but it is not unstoppable, and there’s no better time to undermine it than in an economic crisis. The middle-classes camped outside Saint Paul’s Cathedral are rudderless, mild, and without conviction. They know international financiers and casino-capitalists have ripped them off, but they just don’t know what to believe in anymore because everything that really matters has been traduced by the leftist-liberals who run our institutions. People want change, but they need to be shown that there can be a right-wing critique of casino capitalism as well as a Marxist one; that market forces do need to be subject to proper institutional regulation but that man is not homo-economicus either; his culture and identity matter as well as GDP.'
