Professor Tomislav Sunic is one of the most prominent interpreters of the European New Right currently writing today. Born in 1953 and educated at the Universities of Zagreb and California, Dr. Sunic's first work Against Democracy and Equality: The European New Right successfully introduced the English-speaking world to postwar Continental Right thought. First published by Peter Lang Group (1990) and successively by Arktos Media Ltd. (2011), this work popularised the writings of Alain De Benoist, Guillaume Faye, Pierre Krebs, Sigrid Hunke and other rightist intellectuals, Professor Sunic taught at several universities in the United States and also published his monographs Homo Americanus: Child of the Postmodern Age (2007) and Postmortem Report: Cultural Examinations from Postmodernity (2010). Both works discuss the rise of liberal, Americanocentric culture after 1945 and its deleterious effects on Europe. He will be speaking to the Traditional Britain Group on modern education and its destruction of traditional culture.

"As a rule every regime change is accompanied by a change in educational policy. Every new political process means a new educational process. Education and politics are two closely intertwined fields which cannot be conceived of separately. They go hand in hand. The word, education comes from the Latin verb “educare”, which denotes the action of breeding animals, or raising cattle, or taking care of plants in the field.  The second meaning comes from the Latin verb “educere” whose verbal root, is “duco/ducere” meaning to lead or to guide. It was a common view among the Ancients, but also among modern sociobiologists, that man, unlike animals, which function solely by their instincts, remains an incomplete being. Only knowledge helps man get a necessary veneer in humanizing and civilizing himself.  We can already make our first remark, namely that heredity, or metaphorically speaking, nature, as crucial as it is in the racial identity building process and in political behavior, is of meager value unless accompanied by an appropriate schooling nurture. In conclusion we must agree that the foundation of the modern multicultural, stateless, rootless, and raceless system is the logical outcome of the end of the Second World War. This system, in which we are all living today, was not a chance result of a wicked person or some conspiracy theory, as may be assumed by some of us here, but a logical outcome of the belief in progress and equality."
