Francis Parker Yockey's Thought In Australia Dr. Jim Saleam
Yockey was born in Chicago in 1917. He graduated with honours from Notre Dame University in 1941. After a short wartime stint in the Army he served as Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Wayne County (Detroit, Michigan). He took a position with the War Crimes Tribunal in 1946 (a legal bit of gobbledygook which underlay American imperialism, as much as it now today justifies New World Order morality) and shortly after, essentially quit in disgust and opposition to the process. Later, in 1947 - 1948, he wrote Imperium whilst living in Ireland. The American State Department refused to renew his passport, yet he managed to enter and leave the United States throughout the 1950's. He was ultimately detected and seized by the FBI on charges of passport fraud. Held in custody, he mysteriously died (suicide?) on June 21, 1960.
Yockey has been an enigma to many. This situation was largely corrected with the publication of Kevin Coogan's Dreamer Of The Day: Francis Parker Yockey And The Post-War Fascist International (2000), although further research is clearly necessary to articulate his thought and actual political placement. His life involved work with the pre-war American nationalist and neutralist movements, opposition to American involvement in the Second World War, support for Continental pan-European/national-revolutionary groups after the war, and the development of a new concept of Conservative Revolution. Yockey was not anti-Soviet (as were most groups of the American right-wing) whereso the Eastern bloc challenged the American liberal-capitalist-imperialism which he had come to detest as the prime enemy of all humanity.
The collected pieces presented here contain material of general ideological interest, as well as contentious ideas. The reader will note that some of the material has references which could be described as - anti-semitic. It should be noted that Yockey wrote to mobilise people who may have been influenced by the assorted theses of the American right-wing scene; this marginalised force often demonstrated an intense interest in this issue. Yockey, of course, set out to push them in new directions, while necessarily using some of their language. Further, Yockey did question the role of Zionism in internal Western politics and in global politics, matters still of relevance, given the pro-Israel stance taken by all Western governments. In his ultimate position on the subject, he posited that Stalinism had become an enemy of Zionism, an opinion which did not endear him to the anti-communist Right.
This Collection is published to fill a gap in knowledge about Yockey's thought and stimulate further commentary. The reader, whatever his inclination, can judge Yockey for himself.
