  1. 🙂 What makes Yockey interesting, IMO, is not his Fascism, which I agree is on par with Jean Paul Sartre’s Maoism or George Bernard Shaw’s Stalinism, but his argument that American plutocratic capitalism was ultimately a greater threat to the West than Communism, which has turned out to be true, and his view that Russia was the future of the West, which may also turn out to be true. Also, I generally agree with his support for Third World nationalism against Western imperialism, which is a mirror image of Chomsky’s, though from the opposite end of the ideological spectrum.

  2. Yockey was the first and only man to really endorse what could be described as national bolshevism in America. The only guy I’m aware of that keeps his legacy alive is Maury Knutson.

  3. I agree that Yockey is interesting, but I don’t see him as an appropriate figure for commemoration by anarchists or libertarians. Each to their own, but personally I would not participate in a political memorial for someone with Yockey’s beliefs.

  4. “Each to their own, but personally I would not participate in a political memorial for someone with Yockey’s beliefs.”

    I wouldn’t either. I just thought the video of the commemoration was interesting.

    “Yockey was the first and only man to really endorse what could be described as national bolshevism in America. The only guy I’m aware of that keeps his legacy alive is Maury Knutson.”

    Maury’s blog is one of the more interesting anti-system blogs at present. N-Bs are far too state friendly for my tastes, but I prefer to approach ideas and thinkers objectively, take what I can use, and forget the rest.

  5. I haven’t been able to get through the whole thing yet myself. It’s a poor quality recording and a bit frustrating to sit through all the way.

    I’d definitely recommend trying to check out the Gottfried video from the PFS conference. It’s a bit shorter and it contains some really valuable insights about the nature of our public intellectual class. Gottfried is probably the best critic of Cultural Marxism out there. Fuse Gottfried on Cultural Marxism with Szasz on the therapeutic state, Carson on plutocracy, and Chomsky on foreign policy, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of how the system actually works.
