Trump and the Globalist Convergence of the Left and Right Against Nationalism by Ricardo Duchesne

Talk about Donald Trump by Ricardo Duchesne

What is Globalism?

Globalism is the dominant ideology of our times and it unites the Left and the Right. Globalism should not be confused with globalization. Globalists purposely encourage this confusion, but globalization is factual account about the accelerating interactions of nations since the discovery of the New World and the creation of international markets, shipping and railway communications networks, in the sixteenth century through the nineteenth century. Globalism, on the other hand, is an ideology about how our current elites, on the Right and the Left, would like things to be politically. 

Globalism is an ideology that advocates open borders, mass immigration, and the liquidation of (Western) national identities. It advocates, under the guise of diversity, the obliteration of "indigenous" European cultures, and the creation of a generic culture dedicated to consumerism and universal human rights. Globalization is not an ideology but a factual state of affairs about the growth of communications and trade in the modern era. 

Both the leftist and the corporate right establishment are globalists, and both portray globalism as if it were an inevitable fact intimately associated with the growth of trade and communications. But globalism, as Robert Locke points out, is a deliberate political choice, no more inevitable than the establishment of feminism, transsexualism or communism. Mass immigration is not inevitable, it could be stopped tomorrow. The European Union, which seeks to diminish the political independence of European nations, could be abolished, and this would not bring an end to globalization, any more than Japan's decision not to diversify itself through mass immigration has limited its ability to become a global economic power.

NSA DOCUMENTS PROVE SURVEILLANCE OF DONALD TRUMP & HIS FAMILY Bombshell discovery shows targets of NSA's "Project Dragnet"

WASHINGTON, D.C. – have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.
Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to
The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.
Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Donald Trump was apparently under NSA electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency.

Origins Of The Alt Right

Among the usual media bloviation, the libertarians attempt to find the origins of the Alt Right, and fail:
Here is a prehistory of what we call the alt-right today, which is probably better described as a 21st-century incarnation of what in the 19th century would have been called right-Hegelianism. I’m skipping over many political movements (in Spain, France, and Italy), and clownish leaders like George Lincoln Rockwell, Oswald Mosley, and Fr. Coughlin, to get right to the core ideas that form something like a school of thought which developed over a century.
As with most material-over-pattern style thinking, they get it exactly wrong. The Alt Right did not arise from these thoughts, but discovered them late in the game, which is why the Alt Right is ideologically unformed instead of repeating the dogma of the past. In fact, what defines the Alt Right is that it wanted to escape the far right and mainstream right both.
How do I know?
For starters, myself and several others produced a series ofproto-AltRight sites before the Alt Right existed. The American Nihilist Underground Society was a 1990s version of the Alt Right, while the followup CORRUPT was a 2000s version which showcased the mixture of influences that made the Alt Right: libertarianism, pan-nationalism, human biodiversity, anti-egalitarianism and transcendentalism.

Yes, Obama Did Investigate Trump by GEORGE NEUMAYR

Straining at the tweet and swallowing the camel has become Washington’s favorite pursuit, and it was on tiresome display at Monday’s Congressional hearing with Jim Comey. Out of it came two clashing headlines: “Comey Denies Obama Ordered Wiretapping on Trump,” “The FBI is Investigating Trump’s Links to Russia.”
In other words, the core claim underlying Trump’s tweets is true: people acting on the authority of Obama opened an investigation into Trump’s campaign, then criminally leaked mention of it to friendly news outlets in an attempt to derail his election. When is Obama going to apologize for that?
Were the Republicans less feckless and docile to the media-determined parameters of any discussion, they would have kept the focus on the outrageousness of Obama investigating an opposing party’s candidate at the height of an election campaign. But their first instinct is always to distance themselves from Trump, not defend him.
So unlike Adam Schiff, who prosecuted the case for the Dems ruthlessly, the Republicans dithered, striking Comey with the flat of the blade. Instead of probing his vague answers, they complacently accepted them before trailing off into the next series of unilluminating questions.
“I have no information that supports those tweets,” Comey replied to one of Schiff’s leading questions. Why didn’t Republicans ask him to elaborate? Was he saying that the FBI didn’t investigate the computer server connected to Trump Tower (as reported by Circa News)? Was he saying that his investigation hasn’t intercepted a single one of Trump’s communications? He would have declined to answer these questions, but that refusal to answer would have cast doubt on the authority of his categorical denial. After all, if he can’t describe his investigation into the Trump campaign, how can anybody be sure that it excludes Trump’s communications?
Congressman Devin Nunes, the chairman of the committee, couldn’t match Schiff in partisan zeal and rigor, as evident in his giving Schiff fifteen minutes of opening remarks while restricting himself to five minutes of them. In his sheepish remarks, he defensively treated the media’s outrage at Trump’s tweet as if it were the first and most important matter that he needed to address. Why let the hearing become a referendum on Trump’s tweeting? Why place the emphasis on that and not on the one suggestive remark Nunes did make, which he didn’t pursue very effectively and asserted more weakly than necessary, that “it’s still possible that other surveillance activities were used against President Trump and his associates”? Still possible? Given that any investigation involves surveillance of some kind, it is not possible but certain that FBI agents have engaged in those activities.

Black Gun Violence in Trenton Reaching Epidemic Levels, Forcing Blacks to Call for Martial Law

“We’re never going to bring business here,’’ acting Police Director Ernest Parrey Jr. said in an interview last week. “We’re never going to bring tourism here. We’re never going to bring the economic side of the house back here if we don’t address the public safety issue.”Those words were spoken in 2014, after out-of-control black violence in New Jersey's capital city threatened what was left of the economic viability of Trenton. 

Just last month, a white man was gunned down at 3:45 p.m. in Trenton. 53-year-old Michael Brancolino Jr. wasn't even the target of the shooting, but was killed when the gunman sprayed bullets at their intended target. 

Virtually every homicide in Trenton has a non-white suspect, with Michael Brancolino's death just another black-on-white murder no one will care about save his family and friends. Gun violence, courtesy of blacks, is trending up. Because nonfatal shootings were so frequent,Trenton's undermanned police department had actually stopped tracking them in 2012.

So it comes this... with the civilization white people built (ultimately abandoning) in Trenton crumbling under the weight of racial realities, blacks yearn for martial law to restore law and order completely alien to their race. [Man shot 9 times in Trenton, resident calls for Martial Law, The Trentonian, 3-19-17]:
A city woman climbed the steps to enter her home Sunday evening and noticed crime scene tape preventing motorists from driving through evidence and police lights flashing down the street. 
“I just came from church talking about stuff like this,” the woman said. “This violence needs to end.” 
A 27-year-old man suffered numerous gunshot wounds to his chest, arm and legs Sunday in the 800 block of Stuyvesant Avenue. The shooting happened around 5:45 p.m. outside a grocery store. 
Police sources say the man was shot nine times. The victim remains hospitalized in stable condition.

What Are “Right” And “Left”?

Amazingly, most people have no idea what political “Right” and “Left” are, even professionals writing in the field.
To understand this division, we should go back to the origins of the terms. This is a technique sometimes used to trace the meaning of a word over time, and to figure out why it was originally used, because that generally indicates what was so different from the norm that it required a new term.
In the case of “Right” and “Left,” these terms arose after the French Revolution when parties in the national assembly sat on one side of the aisle or the other. Those who liked the new order sat on the left; those who favored the old way and wanted to resist the new as much as possible sat on the right.
From that we get these simple terms which correspond to our cultural conception of handedness: the right hand is the one where action and signaled intent are the same, where the left is the hand that does the opposite of what signaled intent suggests. Historically, this is because the right hand can be used to shake while the left hand draws a blade.

Weapons of mass derision: Is Russian comedy the Kremlin's secret weapon?


NATO analysts studied Russian comedy TV programs over the past nine years and concluded that they serve the Kremlin's political objectives and are directed against the West.

NATO's Strategic Communications Center (StratCom) is sounding the alarm about the threat of Russian humor. On March 17 in Riga, Latvian specialists presented the report, "StratCom laughs: in search of an analytical network," that was the result of nine years of research.
The authors conducted a content analysis of four popular comedy programs on Russia's Channel One TV since 2008. Special focus was given to the Club of the Merry and Witty, also known by it's Russian initials, KVN, which is one of the oldest comedy shows on Russian television.

Discrediting Western leaders

StratCom specialists are especially concerned by the way evening comedy shows - Projector Paris Hilton, Evening Urgant, Yesterday Live, and Maxim Maxim - depict Western leaders. NATO analysts concluded that Russian TV comedians depict Western leaders in a negative light in order to discredit them. Russian TV devotes the most amount of time to American politicians.
"George Walker Bush has been portrayed in the most negative light – both personally and professionally, as a person of extremely low intelligence, hated by people all around the world," said the report. Among the Bush jokes is one where President Obama, when playing with White House employees' children, says that the first to urinate on the rug was George Walker Bush.
Speaking about French presidents, the analysts concluded that they were never portrayed as the leader of an influential western European state.
"We see two rather simple men (Nicolas Sarkozy and Francoise Hollande) who struggle to overcome the challenges of their everyday lives like any average person." The authors of the report were also displeased with the way German Chancellor Angela Merkel is presented. "Her role as one of the leading politicians of the European Union is almost completely ignored."

Here are the cold, hard facts about Donald Trump’s approach to Iran

Here are the cold, hard facts about Donald Trump’s approach to Iran
President Donald Trump has been in office for a exactly two months, but there are still no hints as to what his policy toward Iran will be. All we really have to guide us are a couple of comments that Trump made on the campaign trail, his trashing the Iran nuclear agreement as the most incompetent deal ever negotiated in the history of mankind, and his promise to put Iran “on notice.”
Needless to say, the Iranians weren’t particularly impressed with the Trump administration’s “on notice” remark. If they were, Tehran would have thought twice before continuing to test ballistic missiles or ceased irritating the U.S. Navy in the Strait of Hormuz. The slapping of additional sanctions on more than two dozen Iranian individuals and entities in January was the kind of response that congressional Republicans often decried as weak and inadequate when Barack Obama did it, yet they remain complacent when it’s Trump. As for the rest of our policy on Iran, it’s mysterious, largely because the Trump administration remains in a deep dive as to how they will approach the problem and what they’re actually going to do about the nuclear deal.
There’s nothing wrong with being cautious. The Trump administration should take its time and get its Iran policy right. And whatever approach they ultimately decide on, it should take into account these cold, hard facts:
  • Don’t mess with the nuclear deal, at least not yet: A bipartisan majority in the House and Senate disapproved of the Iranian nuclear deal when it was first proposed to Congress in September 2015. The JCPOA, however, has worked far better than even its harshest critics would have expected. The IAEA has repeatedly verified that Iran is upholding its side of the bargain. According to their latest verification report, “Iran has not pursued the construction of the existing Arak heavy water research reactor based on its original design,” which translated means “Iran’s plutonium facility is now useless.” Iranian scientists have IAEA inspectors looking over their shoulders at every turn, keeping Tehran honest and ensuring the international community that any suspicion is probed and – if need be – punished. The secretary-general of the IAEA stated this week that the JCPOA has given his agency the best access to Iran’s program that it’s ever had. This arrangement is working and Trump shouldn’t mess with it.

The Hate Group That Incited the Middlebury Melee

Under different circumstances, Alabama civil rights lawyer Morris S. Dees and American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray might have been colleagues, even pals. Instead, Murray found himself in a near-riot at Middlebury College after accepting a speaking invitation from Republican students at the Vermont school. Students and faculty galvanized by Dees’ political organization barred Murray from speaking. They shouted him down, chanted their own manifesto, and pulled fire alarms to prevent him from being heard.
When Murray and Middlebury professor Allison Stanger tried to leave the building, they were followed by protesters who accosted them physically. The professor was grabbed by the hair and her neck twisted—she was fitted with a neck brace at a hospital—and their car rocked in a way that alarmed local authorities.
It was another victory for opponents of free speech, and if that seems like an incongruous scalp for a civil rights lawyer to wear, well, our politics are pretty odd these days.
Charles Murray is a political scientist with a doctorate degree from M.I.T. The American Enterprise Institute is a Washington-based think tank devoted to “defending human dignity, expanding human potential, and building a freer and safer world.” Its scholars believe these goals can be attained by promoting democracy and strengthening the free enterprise system in the U.S. and around the globe.

The rhetoric coming out of Turkey continues to get increasingly aggressive towards Europe. The Turks are now threatening to invade Europe with 15,000 desert monkeys a month!
From AFP:
Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu has threatened to “blow the mind” of Europe by sending 15,000 refugees a month to EU territory, in an intensifying dispute with the bloc.
Ankara and Brussels almost a year ago on March 18 signed a landmark deal that has substantially lessened the flow of migrants from Turkey to Europe.
But the accord is now hanging in the balance due to the diplomatic crisis over the blocking of Turkish ministers from holding rallies in Europe.
“If you want, we could open the way for 15,000 refugees that we don’t send each month and blow the mind” of Europe, Soylu said in a speech late Thursday, quoted by the Anadolu news agency.
Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has already indicated that Turkey could rip up the deal and said Turkey was no longer readmitting migrants who crossed into Greece.
Clearly the Turks feel somewhat emboldened by the results of the Dutch election. These Turk desert rats are threatening an invasion and have already setup Turkish colonies within Europe that are positioned to wage race war against the native population.

The 5 Most Spectacular Landscapes on Earth (That Murder You)

Mother Nature is an evil bitch that wants us dead. We know this, we accept it, we try to burn one plant a day as petty revenge against her for it and we move on with our lives. But sometimes her traps are so unsubtle, so obviously, blatantly designed to do nothing but murder human beings in the most awful ways possible that we can't help but stand and applaud her sheer balls. In that spirit, here are five of Mother Nature's more vicious bear traps:

#5. Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park -- Madagascar

The Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park is a protected UNESCO world heritage site, but this park doesn't need any tollbooths, rangers or even a tall, spiked fence. Why? Because it's literally nothingbut spiked fence. Tsingy is a 250-square-mile tiger trap made up of massive limestone obelisks riddled with jagged spears. And yes, they will cut your pretty face. And no, they won't not cut your pretty face, no matter how much you cooperate.
Sometimes the Earth gives a freebie to the World of Warcraft design team.
Biologists call the area a bio-fortress. The park is so impassable and uncharted, in fact, that every time a team goes on an expedition there, they find approximately five new species. They're literally tripping over entirely unseen life-forms -- a photographer for National Geographic documented these creatures, presumably while picking crocodile-headed lizards out of his canteen and shaking bizarre, dancing crimson bugs out of his sleeping bag.
National Geographic
Sometimes a forest of daggers just isn't enough.
It shouldn't be surprising: 90 percent of all species found on Madagascar are endemic, so if we go vaulting over the Earth's barbed-wire fence on the Island of Extremely Rare Shit, we're probably going to see some new things. And yet despite all of that sweet groundbreaking science temptation, the vast majority of the park remains completely unexplored to this day.
Olivier Lejade
So yeah. There are definitely dinosaurs in there.
That's really a testament to how inhospitable it is: We weren't just talking about "spikes" and "cutting" earlier because the area looks "spiky" from a helicopter. Those things really are razor-sharp. "Tsingy" is actually the Malagasy word for "where you cannot walk barefoot." When one expedition visited, they couldn't navigate with ordinary rock-climbing gear because (and these are actual quotes from an actual scientist) "Tsingy chewed equipment and flesh with equal ease. At times it was like climbing amid giant skewers, the consequences of a fall suggested in the mutilated trunks of toppled trees below."
Marco Zanferrari
Sometimes the formations produce Yes album covers just to mess with you.
Maybe we should amend our analogy a little: It's less like nature's junkyard fence and more like the Earth's teeth, where it stabs and grinds you into a fleshy pulp for easy digestion.
And just in case you still think we're exaggerating, here's how Steven Goodman (the quoted scientist above) ended his trip: He and his team were walking on a normal, plain, flat path, when he turned his ankle just a little bit and stumbled. That's all -- he didn't even fall all the way; just took a brief knee.
Olivier Lejade
We can't say this would be our preferred method of climbing.
It took them two days to hobble back to a hospital to remove the limestone spike from his kneecap.

I have been longing to write about this for a very long time now after being exposed to the sickness of Western television series and movies as well as a number of Hong Kong movies. This work is not intended to encourage people to start having a fanatical fan craze over Hong Kong movies as opposed to Western series and movies. Both do not have a godly base in Christ, yet amazingly, Hong Kong movies have shown more honour and respect towards Christianity despite the directors in question not being Christians nor having any intent to promote Christianity. This I say to the shame of a good proportion of Western series and movies commonly accepted today. I will be mainly using Hollywood as the main example although I could well have included many others from godless Western European films that are award winners. However, time only allows me so much and I will thus focus my contrast on godless Hollywood series and programs as opposed to Hong Kong movies. It will become clear that the soul of the sickness in the Western world due to their rejection of the Christian Faith, is evident and is a call for Christians in the West to awaken out of slumber and in the words of the late Father Seraphim Rose (1934-1982): “Be Christians once again.”

“Frantic Yelling Ensued” - Taki's Magazine

Congressman Steve King (R-IA) has noticed just how extremist today’s respectable conventional wisdom has become. So King has been exercising a Trump-like knack for trolling the Establishment with blunt truths that enrage goodthinkers into revealing just how much their worldview is founded upon hatred of average Americans.
Over the weekend, King tweeted:
[Geert] Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.
Those last three words set off a paroxysm of tut-tutting, with The New York Times declaring King to stand revealed as a “white nationalist.” Chris Hayes of MSNBC lamented:
“Somebody else’s babies” is such a vile phrase, I can’t get it out of head.
Columnist Roger Cohen raged in the NYT:
Fascist genetics now have a place on Capitol Hill…. Wilders-loving King might also go to Ellis Island for a refresher on the American idea.
Especially incensed were ethnically privileged Conquistador-Americans, such as Miami’s blond Republican congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who tweeted:
Diversity is our strength.

A Nation of Immigrants? Okay, but WHICH immigrants?

Jews tell us that America is a nation of immigrants. They go even further and say even Great Britain is a nation of immigrants. But we must ask... which immigrants?

It’s really a matter of who/whom.

Even if Britain developed as a nation of immigrants/invaders over the eons, it mattered WHO or WHICH PEOPLES invaded or arrived.

Even in the Age of Invasions, Britain was conquered by Europeans, so it remained European.
If Britain had been invaded by Muslims, Chinese, Hindus, and Africans than by Danes, Vikings, Romans, Germanic peoples, it would have become a very different nation. After all, every place on the planet was created by invasions(or 'immigration'), but WHO INVADED decided the race, culture, and heritage.

Pre-Columbian America was a land of ceaseless invasions(since time immemorial) as indigenous peoples, the Indians, invaded each other’s territories. But regardless of which side prevailed, Indians still ruled the continent since Indians conquered Indians. But when America was invaded by whites, the culture totally changed because whites were racially and culturally different. White conquest of America was different from conquests by other Indians.

Large Fight Between 50+ Black Youth in Indianapolis Ends With Police Cars Attacked, Destroyed

Remember, the city was nearly 80 percent white in 1990, and today is roughly 57% percent white. 

The black population (roughly 28 percent of the city) is responsible for nearly all the violent crime in the city, and individual blacks collectively have helped break the homicide records in both 2015 and 2016.

Data from the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety shows that of 149 criminal homicides in 2016, the racial relationship between victim and suspect was: 
Black victim - Black assailant - 50Black victim - White assailant - 1Black victim - Unknown assailant - 69White victim - White assailant - 11White victim - Black assailant - 7White victim - Unknown assailant - 14
Based on this data, we can safely conclude many of the unknown assailants (suspects) in the murder of white people are blacks. Interracial homicides/murder in Indianapolis have a distinct racial makeup: black. 

Which brings us to a glimpse of the future, where black teens today have virtually no fear of the white establishment. They know the city is nearly theirs, with black crime driving away white people and creating a future where a black mayor and majority black city council can be

The KKK Canary: How We’re Losing Our Freedom of Speech First Amendment allows even reviled groups right to ‘hate speech’ By Selwyn Duke

gettyimages 88984187 The KKK Canary: How We’re Losing Our Freedom of Speech

If Pastor Martin Niemöller’s poem “First They Came” was rewritten for today’s free-speech battles, would the Ku Klux Klan be in the first line? It’s hard to think of a more unsympathetic group, yet tyranny often starts small, sometimes targeting first those that are liked the least. A current court case involving the KKK serves as a warning: We are slowly, incrementally losing our freedom of speech.
At issue is the story of 22-year-old William D. Schenk, who spent five months in a Vermont jail after leaving Klan recruitment fliers at the Burlington homes of two women, one black and one Hispanic. Authorities accuse him of “targeting” the ladies, and in April 2016 he pleaded no contest to “two counts of disorderly conduct, enhanced by a hate crime penalty based on prosecutors’ belief that Schenk was motivated by the victims’ race,” reported the Burlington Free Press.
This plea was entered, however, under the condition that Schenk could appeal a judge’s decision to not dismiss the charges. That appeal is now being heard by the Vermont Supreme Court.
Unsurprisingly, the facts of the case are in dispute. Schenk claims he distributed the fliers to 50 homes; police say they found no recipients but the two minority women. Deputy Chittenden County State’s Attorney Aimee Griffin said it could be “inferred” that he targeted the women; Associate Justice John Dooley noted that there’s no evidence Schenk knew the two women were minorities. Schenk is a North Carolina native and states that he conducted a similar recruitment drive in his home state.
What’s not in dispute is that if Schenk had been recruiting for the Republicans or Communist Party USA, he never would have landed in the dock. As the Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) put it in papers filed on his behalf, “[T]he government seeks to punish Schenk based solely on the content of his speech.”

SPLC 2: The Search for More Money - Steve Sailer

It was a bad week for the Southern Poverty Law Center, America’s self-appointed witch-sniffers-in-chief. For decades, the SPLC, despite its comic history of money-grubbing and out-of-control vilification, has been treated by the mainstream media as the unquestionable authority about who the Bad Guys are.
Finally, however, doubts have been allowed to surface about an organization that is in reality America’s richest hate group (with financial assets of $302,800,000).
Since the American people elected Donald Trump, the SPLC has been doing what the SPLC does best—whipping up fear and loathing among both violence-prone young thugs and elderly, affluent, easily confused Jewish donors nervous that the Cossacks will soon be riding through the streets of Brookline.
But the SPLC stumbled into two embarrassments last week.
After months of promoting hysteria over anti-Semitic terror threats by supposed Trump supporters, the news that a black leftist journalist had been arrested for sending eight bomb threats to Jewish community centers was excused by the SPLC as “not necessarily anti-Semitism as such.”
Almost simultaneously, masked anti–First Amendment vigilantes assaulted social scientist Charles Murray and professor Allison Stanger (who had offered to question him).
Murray’s crime? Daring to try to give a speech at expensive Middlebury College in Vermont’s ski country. A student group justified the assault by claiming, “Professor Stanger’s hair was not intentionally pulled but was inadvertently caught…”
Obviously, Murray was exercising his White Male Privilege of being bald, so the Blackshirts had to send the female scholar to the hospital instead.

“Napoleon”: The Rediscovery of a Cinematic Masterpiece by K. V. Turley

Napoelon Abel Gance
French director Abel Gance’s magnificent 1927 silent film Napoleon was only rediscovered thanks to the efforts of an English schoolboy, who was given a film projector as a Christmas present…
Napoelon Abel Gance
There are films about legendary figures that become legends themselves. Such a film is Abel Gance’sNapoleon. Premiered in 1927, it was so far ahead of its time, technically and cinematically, that it failed at the box office both in Europe and America. Nevertheless, and against all odds, it had a cinematic resurrection. Critics then hailed the film as a masterpiece. This triumph, that was as unexpected as it was critically decisive, was to begin in London at the end of the 1940s when an eleven-year-old boy was given a film projector as a Christmas present.
The boy’s name was Kevin Brownlow. Like many boys before and since, the cinema fascinated him; unusually, however, and by accident rather than design, he became enamored of an era, and indeed an art form, that was then deeply unfashionable. How he came to be so interested in silent movies was largely pragmatic: No one else at the time was purchasing them. Copies of 16mm films of many of the Silent Era’s classics could be had for pennies from various shopkeepers in London who were glad to be rid of the many bulky canisters that held those reels. The boy quickly amassed a collection of some of the greatest films from the 1920s. While his contemporaries were collecting stamps or comics, unwittingly the young Brownlow had started to curate a library of films from the Silent Era.
