Wild and woolly geopolitical theory

Check out this interesting site that your correspondant ran into while surfing: "Integral Tradition and Conservative Revolution."

Now, your humble servant finds it tough to swallow the idea that to "regain its sovereignty, Europe has to end its status of a protectorate of the United States by turning away from the Atlantic towards the Russian and Muslim East and to get rid of American supremacy."

But, the next chestnut is much better: "... the native European people will be an ethnic minority in their own countries within sixty years. To ensure that this does not happen, and that European people retain their homeland and identity, an immediate halt to all further immigration, the immediate deportation of criminal and illegal immigrants, and the introduction of a system of voluntary resettlement ... This does not include nor endorse hatred of any kind - but rather realizes the only hope for the progress of mankind into a new and happier world is the geographic and social sovereignty of all Peoples."

For all the pluses and minuses, the site is well thought-out. In particular, this idea was fascinating: "... the seafarers' races create commercial societies - dynamical, technologically developed, innovative, but gravitating around plutocracy, egoism and individualism. The peoples dwelling in the depth of continents, in the steppes, forests, plains and wildernesses, on the contrary, are static, conservative, contemplative, yet valiant and inclined to communitarian-counciliary principles. "Leviathan" in the terminology of geopolitical science symbolizes a maritime, "mobile", commercial civilization, e.g. Athenes, Carthago, England, the US, in contraposition to "Behemoth" - symbol of a continental, "static", non-commercial civilization, e.g. Sparta, Rome, the Holy Empire, the Golden Horde, Russia. This polarity of West and East, sea and land, island and continent, atlantism and eurasism predetermines the dynamics of the fundamental lines of world politics. "

It is rather curious that a self-proclaimed Catholic blog shares views with a site that is clearly gnostic (Evola, Guenon, Schuon ...).
Should you re-consider your self-appointed labels?

I apologize for the tardy reply.

The only point of full concurrence I posted on was regarding how indigenous Europeans are going the way of Amerindians; that is, into functional extinction, which is a shame when it happens to any indigenous group in the land of their fathers.

Curiously, that same site also has Chesterton listed as an influence.
