Nouvelle Droite

Alain deBenoists is a name that most Americans wouldn't know. He is a key intellectual in what is called the European New Right. This school of thought is appealing to me because it combines my two heresies, and my two passions. I joke that I am a heretic both politically and theologically. I am both a neo-pagan and a tribalist. The neo-paganism defies the orthodoxy of monotheism while the tribalism rebels against multiculturalism. I exalt in poly isms of all stripes: polytheism, polyculturalism, polyacracy. But my belief systems don't completely jell with the American New Right, in the steps of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. In fact, people who hold their perspective would be most displeased by me. I am equally alone when it comes to the American Pagan community. Most of the Pagan folk I know are ( if political at all) very far on the left end fringe. American Paganism to a great extent is a continuation of the sixties counter culture. Now because I am a tribalist, a firm believer in local control(ie. the city state system) I have no problem with either Pat Robertson or the left wing Pagan. But both could have issues with me. I am not religiously correct for the one and not politically correct for the other.
So that's where the Nouvelle Droite comes in. I will admit that I don't have perfect understanding of it but with my limited understanding it does seem to be a combination of my religious and political unorthodoxy. And it feels good to have some kind of ideological home.
As an aside, it is my hope that Richard Spencer and the alternative right that he represents will move in the direction of the Nouvelle Droite. In the meantime I will keep reading and looking for kindred souls. They must be out there somewhere.
