The Tribe Abhorr'd: Hilaire Belloc and the Jews


HISTORIAN, sailor, poet, theologian, novelist, travel writer and fierce campaigner for social justice, Hilaire Belloc (1870-1953) was all of these things and more. As one of the most outspoken figures of his time, Belloc's name will always be inextricably bound up with controversy and here, in Troy Southgate's forthright and challenging book, the author sets out to examine Belloc's contentious thoughts on the Jewish Question, which, in the first quarter of the twentieth century, was becoming increasingly pertinent. Beginning with an examination of Belloc's own Anglo-French background, the book continues with a detailed look at the history of the Jews in England and the rise of the infamous Rothschild family. The remarks Belloc made about Jews in his first three novels and earliest political journalism are also explored, with the bulk of his opinions on World Jewry appearing in the 1922 work, The Jews. Elsewhere, the author studies the wider ramifications of Belloc's thoughts in some depth and capably demonstrates that many of his concerns have since come true. The final section of the book examines whether the accusations of "Anti-Semitism" that have often been laid at Belloc's door can actually be substantiated and the text also contains two fascinating appendices, one dealing with the theory that most Jews are descended from the Khazarian Empire and the other focussing on the global impact of the Rothschild banking network. With extensive footnotes and a useful bibliography, this book will go a long way towards identifying the innumerable problems that have existed between Jews and Europeans for many centuries. In many ways, Belloc - who has been labelled a 'Jew-baiter' - was actually motivated by a genuine and heartfelt desire to end the mutual antipathy that exists between our respective peoples. Indeed, whilst this work will certainly appeal to critics of Zionism and international finance it will also be of interest to readers who are looking for a sane and rational solution that can benefit those on both sides of the proverbial fence.

National-Anarchism: Kindred Spirits

EVER since its emergence in the late-1990s, first as a developing tendency and then as a fully-fledged movement, National-Anarchism has been growing steadily and motivating people with its message of political, social and economic self-determination. In this volume, the sixth in our series, we focus on some of the key writers and dissidents who have contributed to the overall development of our beliefs and objectives. As a result, therefore, we have asked some of our leading activists and supporters to introduce a specific Anarchist text that has inspired them in some way. Among the material discussed is The Anarchist Revolution (Nestor Makhno), The Theory of Alternative Green (Richard Hunt), Why Revolution? (Alexander Berkman), State Socialism and Anarchism: How Far They Agree and Wherein They Differ (Benjamin Tucker), Prisons: a Social Crime and Failure (Emma Goldman), The Kronstadt Commune (Ida Mett), Reply to the Platform / Synthesist (Several Russian Anarchists), The Wage System (Alexander Berkman) and The Tyranny of the Clock (George Woodcock). The contributors are Troy Southgate (Editor), Keith Preston, Wayne John Sturgeon, John Howells, Josh Bates, Nora Gillespie and Nathan Wild. It is hoped that some of the leading ideologues and philosophers of Anarchism will motivate and inspire you in the same way, causing you to reject nation-statism and share our dream of establishing village communities based on free association, mutualism, autonomy and organic principles.

Ar-Kan Rune-Lag: The Secret Aryan Way

FOLLOWING on from our 2014 publication, Wulf: Collected Writings of an English Wodenist, Black Front Press is proud to present a second volume from someone who has perhaps done more than any other to advance our historical and linguistic research into North European spirituality from a decidedly Anglo-Saxon outlook. Beginning with a detailed analysis of the thirty-three runes of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, including their definitional and etymological significance, the author sets out the foundations of his unique system. A subsequent chapter examines the runes in light of their importance to the English Awakening, the mission said to be faced by all Woden initiates in their efforts to awaken the Folk to their divine destiny and, thus, help them evolve towards a higher state of consciousness. Wulf then deals with the Rune-Gealdor and seeks to unearth the primal sounds of the runes themselves, before moving on to address the nature of the Common Germanic Futhark and the twenty-four runes of which it is comprised. This process also involves a thorough-going examination of the actual origins of these sacred symbols, before moving on to provide an outline of the Aryan Roots that will enable the serious rune-worker to establish yet further meanings for the runes. Drawing upon the work of Miguel Serrano, as well as touching upon the ideas of Friedrich Nietzsche, the author then looks at the esoteric significance of the spinal column. Made up of 24 vertebrae broken into three sections of seven, twelve and five, it appears in the form of a serpent and can be linked to Mount Me-Ru (Meru), a name for the Holy Mountain of the North. Another fascinating chapter surrounds Wulf's discussion of the Graal Runes, the final three staves of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc (Calc, Stan and Gar) which are related to objects that occur in the Graal Legends: the Cup, the Stone and the Spear. The reader is also introduced to the six-pointed ‘Snowflake’ pattern known as the Hag-All, or All-Hag, representing the basic shape that can be found within the Nine Glory-Twigs and originating from an ancient glyph known as the Seed of Life. The author continues with an investigation into the secret of the ALU-ULA and its relation to Amergin's Cauldron of Poesy and the Three Cauldrons of Chinese lore; goes on to present the runic postures of a complex martial arts system known as the Ar-Kan Rune-Lag (Code of Arya), which seeks to utilise and build upon the Armanen Runes devised by Guido von List; and, finally, concludes his work with an outline of nine spiritual exercises that involve methods of controlled breathing and intense concentration. This well-researched and illuminating text is brought to you by one of Europe's most respected and prolific runologists.

The Green Book by Muammar al-Qathafi

WHEN, on September 1st, 1969, Muammar al-Qathafi (1942-2011) led a bloodless coup against the corrupt Libyan monarchy of King Idris I (1889-1983), the subsequent establishment of a Revolutionary Command Council marked a new dawn in the North African country's troubled history. Observing these events with a keen eye, America's meddling Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had expected the military to take control of the country and were shocked when Qathafi and his Free Officers Movement seized the initiative for themselves. Influenced by Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser (1918-1970) and his United Arab Republic, the revolutionaries set about transforming their newly-acquired nation into the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. By 1975, Qathafi had published The Green Book, an endearing treatise that elaborated upon the philosophical underpinnings of his unique and incomparable revolutionary worldview. Unlike many other thinkers, however, Qathafi had the ability to set forth his ideas and opinions in a highly readable and self-explanatory manner. The Green Book has since become very famous, therefore, for its remarkably succinct and memorable slogans: 'Participation not Representation', 'No Representation in Lieu of the People' and 'Representation is a Falsification of Democracy'. These slogans were soon emblazoned across billboards throughout the entire country. In contrast to the conceited illusion of parliamentary politics, Qathafi's system advocates a series of popular congresses, people's committees and area councils, with power emanating from the grassroots until it finds its ultimate expression in the collective will of the people themselves. From the individual to the family, from the family to the tribe, and from the tribe to the nation. Politicians are replaced by delegates; wage-slaves become partners; tenants are transformed into home-owners. The book is broken into three sections and Part One looks at 'The Solution of the Problem of Democracy (The Authority of the People)', Part Two explores 'The Solution of the Economic Problem (Socialism)' and Part Three deals with 'The Social Basis of the Third Universal Theory'. Having inspired the likes of the Workers Revolutionary Party, the National Front and various revolutionary organisations throughout the world, Qathafi's text has motivated several generations of young anti-capitalist radicals and continues to be one of the most simple and effective platforms for political, social and economic justice. The book includes a new introduction by Troy Southgate.

Troubadours of the Apocalypse: Voices from the Neofolk, Industrial & Neoclassical Underground

THE TRUMPETS are sounding and the Apocalypse beckons. Empires come and go, civilisations rise and fall. Throughout millennia the indomitable cycle of birth, death and rebirth has left its indelible mark upon the stuttering ebb and flow of human history. Few people, before the advent of the fifth century, could have imagined that the mighty Roman Empire would soon be lying in tatters at the feet of its barbarian invaders. And now, over 1500 years later, we find ourselves at another crucial juncture in history and before us the cracks are finally beginning to appear in the seemingly invincible edifice of Western domination. Civilisational decline, therefore, is not a new concept, it is part of a timeless process and today we find ourselves at the tail-end of our own rapidly diminishing epoch. Accompanying the collapse of a civilisation are the prophets, the doomsayers and those who inevitably seek to hasten the process, but there is also a role for the poet, the artist and the musician. As far as the latter is concerned, one of the chief bastions of the prevailing apocalyptic mentality has been the Neofolk, Industrial and Neoclassical genre. Indeed, buried deep within our European and North American subculture, its purveyors and protagonists do not simply reach for the proverbial fiddle as the flames begin to spread through the heart of Rome itself, but they provide us with new insights into the causes of our demise and remind us of the cultural traces which - for better or worse - have made us who we are. Gathered together in this new volume are some of the most popular names in the field and, in a series of fascinating biographical essays, each participant recalls their origins and musical development; their personal hopes and aspirations; the things in life that motivate and inspire them; and their plans for the future. Contributors include Francesca Nicoli (Ataraxia), Riccardo Prencipe (Corde Oblique), Gerhard Hallstatt (Allerseelen), Miklós Hoffer (H.E.R.R.), Raymond P (Von Thronstahl / The Days of the Trumpet Call), Richard Leviathan (Strength Through Joy / Ostara), Robert Taylor (Changes), Grzegorz Siedlecki (Horologium), Daniel Pablo & Carles Jiménez (Àrnica), Christopher Walton (AbRAXAS / Endura / TenHornedBeast) and Kristian Olsson (Survival Unit / Alfarmania). Edited by Troy Southgate, himself a participant in this remarkable musical genre, this book will lead you through the classical and the romantic, the sinister and the enlightening, the tragic and the triumphant.

Runic Sex Postures of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc

THIS exciting new volume examines the thirty-three runes of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc and seeks to incorporate them within a new and original system of sexual magick. Designed to encourage methods of strict discipline and self-control, the purpose of Troy Southgate's unique commentary is to use the symbolism and magickal correspondences of each rune to create a ritualistic and meditative environment for the facilitation of magickal activity. Whilst most sexual behaviour inevitably appeals to the senses and the emotions, the runic sex postures of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc are designed, ultimately, to completely transcend both mind and body. Lavishly illustrated by the talented Polish artist, Zbigniew Bogusławski, who spent months working on each of the designs, the methodology and practicalities of this radical new system have finally been brought to life. With detailed information about each posture, its meaning and application, this work will appeal to occultists, magicians and heathens alike and represents a valuable contribution to the field of Indo-European spirituality.

Albion Awake: Mystical Anarchism and the National Quest for an Alternative Britain

THE HISTORY of Anarchism is one of betrayal and ignorance; of misappropriation and infiltration by the Left, and misrepresentation and demonisation by the Right. Wayne John Sturgeon, who has been a dedicated activist for more than two decades, is an exception to the rule. He does not accept the 'divide-and-rule' strategy that pits Left and Right at one another's throats, but neither does he wish to perpetuate either of these narrow political constructs in any way, shape or form. Indeed, Wayne's vision, inspired by the unique art and poetry of William Blake (1757-1827), posits a future Britain centred on the radical values of spirituality, national pride and decentralisation, but it is also something which completely transcends the corrupt ideologies of both private and state capitalism. The articles in this book, drawn from a variety of sources, include Anarcho-Nationalism; British Mythology and the Emergence of a Folk Radicalism; Anarchist Integralism and the Conservative Revolution; Anarcho-Illuminism; The Free Market and the Tyranny of Statism; Anarcho-Monarchism; The Anarch vs. The Anarchist; Anarcho-Synarchy and Cathar Imperium; Christian Anarchism; Anarcho-Gnosticism and the Golgotha of the Absolute Mind; Anarcho-National-Syndicalism; The Life of Richard Hunt; the Counter-Economics of National-Anarchism; Anarcho-Futurism and F. T. Marinetti; The Mystical Patriotism of William Blake; and Albion Imperium: Metaphysics, Current Trends and Future Paradigms. Edited by Troy Southgate, a personal friend and comrade of Wayne John Sturgeon for many years, this excellent collection should be read by anyone with a serious interest in revolutionary politics.
