Filipino author Siryako Akda reviews the Arktos edition of Benoist’s Problem of Democracy at Alternative Right.
A new review of Can Life Prevail? is up at 65 degrees, an English-language Web site based in Finland.
The failure of liberal capitalism to attain its goals of equal justice and prosperity for all, and the collapse of the Communist dream, which pursued the same objectives, have cleared the way for the establishment of a third path. Attempts in this direction have been made around the world by various sorts of authoritarian regimes, all of which have failed – and it is unlikely that the fundamentalist theocracies will succeed. Whatever will be the case, this alternative to progressivism can only be based on inegalitarian paradigms, removed from the reductive view of mankind as homo oeconomicus.* Yet the global intelligentsia, which is still nostalgic for progressivism and whose perspective is twisted by hegemonic thought – the burdensome utopia of egalitarianism – is not ready to seriously consider the prospect of embarking on any new course. Rather, it is clinging to the embalmed body of a dead idea and continuing as if nothing had happened.
What has now emerged is not a world unified and nourished by history – the linear and automatic outcome of progress – but rather a chaotic and multipolar one that is undergoing globalisation (through markets and telecommunications); a world that has exploded but is being held together, a disorderly and labyrinthine world that will be increasingly laden with history and ’stories’. The ascending line of progress, which was meant to lead to the redemptive eschatology of a heavenly end of history; is now being replaced by the winding, unpredictable and mysterious flow of this very same history.
