A brief mention of the ‘Conservative Revolution’

Counter-Currents Publishing is a hodgepodge of different degrees of rightist ideals, ranging from white nationalism to the ideas of Julius Evola. While 14-11 doesn’t agree with everything they post, they do hit the mark on a lot of their articles and it’s definitely a site that will introduce you to a lot of different views that you won’t normally find at your university. One of these gems is an article about Arthur Moeller van den Bruck, who was one of the figureheads of the Revolutionary Conservatives during the interwar period in Germany. It’s a really good article and has a lot of powerful information in it, we highly recommend you check it out.

There’s a really good quote by Bruck about the differences between being a reactionary and being a conservative, we’ll post it below.

– Andross


“The reactionary’s reading of history is as superficial as the conservative’s is profound. The reactionary sees the world as he has known it; the conservative sees it as it has been and will always be. He distinguishes the transitory from the eternal. Exactly what has been, can never be again. But what the world has once brought forth she can bring forth again.”

“He[the conservative] has no ambition to see the world as a museum; he prefers it as a workshop, where he can create things which will serve as new foundations. His thought differs from the revolutionary’s in that it does not trust things which were hastily begotten in the chaos of upheaval; things have a value for him only when they possess certain stability. Stable values spring from tradition.”
