Dr. Guillaume Faye, an influential academic writer associated with the rise of the so-called French New Right, addresses the false association of the ideology and values of Modernity with the technological advances which have long been produced by Western mankind and other human civilizations in his book Archeofuturism: European Visions of the Post-Catastrophic Age (Arktos, 2010):
[M]any will fear that the death of the ideal of progress and the new order of the world will bring an end to rationality and destroy both science and industrial production, thus setting back the whole of humanity.
It is a common misconception, however, that technological science naturally rests on progressive and egalitarian foundations. This is not true: the end of progressivism – with its dream of globally extending industrial consumption – does not imply the dismantling of technological science and the condemning of the scientific spirit. Technological science has been perverted by the egalitarian universalism of the Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries, which has sought to extend its influence beyond all resonable limits.
Dr. Faye invisions technology and science continuing to be developed in the future in a system based upon healthy, neo-classical values rather than Modernist values. He sees plenty of room in such a world for traditional societies and believes that the West must be guided by pro-Western values which abandon the idea of limitless expansion of bourgeois society around the planet. These are ideas with which Southern nationalists can find common cause.
