"Together, Faye's Archeofuturism and Durant's Paleo Manifesto offer a total, positive approach to the future that is informed and guided by what is known about the human animal, both physically and socially." -Jack Donovan

Format: Paperback
We are accustomed in the West to "conservatives" on television who are basically liberals who really love capitalism and want us to conquer most of the world to "spread freedom."

This situation exists because, since 1945, conservatism has been in disarray. Its fundamental idea is to learn from the past and what works (e.g. ends before means) instead of what is morally or politically correct, which is the foundation of liberalism.

As a result, conservatism endorses some things that are not very polite. It endorses nationalism, or delineation of nations by self-ruling ethnic groups; it supports a caste or class hierarchy; it endorses social Darwinism, or giving more wealth to those who are more competent; finally, it denies social equality, that "freedom" is a definable goal, or that we can all get along.

To a modern person, conservatism is apostasy and a denial of all the television, rock stars and Hollywood stars, writers, friends and gurus tell us is true.

While we might see modern television conservatives as essentially liberals with the methods of the right, the New Right is an attempt to make conservatives with the values of the right and the methods of the liberals. However, it has taken many years to flower and even be defined; Guillaume Faye's "Archeofuturism" is an attempt not only to define it, but to give it a creative ideal toward which to reach.

The book starts by re-capping the history you will not find in textbooks, namely that liberalism started in 1789, causes two centuries of wars trying to establish the nation state and now, thanks to atomizing individualism, has created societies where no one has anything in common and so chaos is the norm and heavy Nanny State enforcement is necessary.

Archeofuturism
One of the leading proponents of the European New Right, Faye has never
before been published in English. Because of this, it is certainly
interesting to see someone getting around to making his work available to
the English-speaking world.

The book is a mish-mash of analysis, points-of-view, criticisms and
suggestions for the future. Faye has a sharp eye, and is certainly
creative. Sometimes he seems to go a bit overboard in various directions -
possibly the price one pays for an imaginative mind - but even this
contributes to making Archeofuturism a worthy read. One may question
Faye's views on biotechnology, futurism and (perhaps especially) love and
sexuality, but this also makes for an active reading. This is not written
in order that politically inclined groups or individuals can agree with it
wholeheartedly, it is written to spark discussion and engender thought.

Faye's vision for the "post-apocalyptic" age is at once compelling and
disturbing. It is summarized in the last part of the book in the form of a
fictional short-story, which paints a picture of the world not as Faye
thinks it would be, or perhaps even as he would want it to be, but as it
could becpme - should disaster strike, and the Archeofuturistic ideals be
implemented in full.

A worthy read, to say the least.

I love metapolitical thinking, but metapolitical writing can can be boring. I really enjoyed both the easily digestible organization of Archeofuturism and Faye's bold, dynamic writing style -- perfectly suited for a futurist manifesto.

Faye tells us we should dream of the future and plan for the future, but temper this futurism with archaism, which he defines not as backward-looking nostalgia, but an understanding of and respect for the “founding impulses” of human social organization.

Using what is known about evolutionary psychology and tried forms of human social organization to inform humanity’s march into the future corrects the built-in mistake of modern life — which is truly driven by greedy commercialism and merely rationalized and pseudo-sacralized by “progressive” neophilia. In what passes for “social science” today, there is a tendency to throw out any traditional idea about human nature which cannot immediately be explained by scientific inquiry — some quick “study,” or the current perception of the barely understood brain — in favor of some theoretical form of social organization completely untried and unknown to our species.

Guillaume Faye is a poet of political theory. One can almost hear the Centurion trumpets blaring in the background as his sentences and paragraphs march forward into the landscape of his imagined future.

I hesitate to describe Faye as a political philosopher because political philosophy is more concerned with theories of justice rather than soothsaying about the dynamics of the 21st Century. ArcheoFuturism isn't animated by concerns with distributive justice but rather with a prediction about the future. Equity, it is said, depends upon ample natural resources. Once physical resources are depleted, equity becomes an absurdity. The future, Faye argues, demands a reasoned method for an un-equal distribution of the world's resources so that a breakaway subset of Man can proceed forward both spiritually and technologically while the masses are consigned to live cyclically in a repetition of traditions that lock them in a contented, innocuous whirlpool that drives in the opposite direction; that is, backwards, into the past, then finally into an oblivion with more simian than human qualities.

Justice, as it is normally conceived of, plays no part in the new ArcheoFuturistic distributive model because the dynamic force is simply the Will to Power. The mandate to proceed forward to the highest destiny of Man justifies a partition of resources that is unequal. And as this dynamic plays out in the 21st Century, Faye envisions institutional collapse and widespread ethnic warfare, with a Balkanization of the planet based on race. Europe expands to Euro-Siberia. China in cooperation with Japan controls California. Africa, I believe, is partitioned between Asians and Europeans.
