Francis Parker Yockey - Imperium
The Philosophy of History and Politics
Much has been said already about this unique and disturbing book, but this much is reasonably certain: A thousand times more is yet to be said. Imperium is the first sequel the literary world knows to Spengler’s monumental The Decline of the West.
In fact, the author of Imperium does more than even Spengler attempted— he defines and creates the pathology of Culture in all of its infinitely urgent importance, including the discipline of Cultural Vitalism.
Imperium rejects the Nineteenth Century: the parched fossils of its thought— Marx, Freud and the scientific-technical world outlook; its exhausted political nostrums— the pluralistic state, liberalism, democracy, communism, internationalism; all of which fail to satisfy the organically vital realities of politics.
Imperium presents unique and almost esoteric political, social and historical definitions and explanations which shall become more widely known— indeed, commonly understood— if our West survives.
Imperium is probably the first book to advocate European unification— to dogmatically predict it— in terms other than the crassly materialistic. Imperium is the first comprehensive and profoundly constructive alternative to the Marxist-liberal degeneracy surrounding us. Imperium is the creation of a man who believed in his Destiny— and in this book— so thoroughly that he became a martyr to it. Imperium is written with a dramatic style and flair for expression seldom encountered even in novels. Yet rising above all else is the simple fact that in Imperium a creative genius has given the world something new: A fourth dimension of intellect and a new concept of spirituality. Imperium heralds the dawn of a new day of Faith.
Among all books, therefore, Imperium has a distinct status. Hardly a man alive will agree with all it contains, yet will not find his personal horizons extended by the reading of it.
