Abstract

This article endeavours to factorize the thought of British Radical Right orator Jonathan Bowden. The author breaks Bowden’s doctrine into four components namely, Paganism, centrality of Western civilization, elitism/ inegalitarianism and literary sophistication. The article begins with laying out a historical context. The said period sees conservatism moving ever closer to the centre of the political continuum and eventually getting arrested by left-wing tendencies. Mainstream conservative parties have lost the meta-political battle. They have given in to the narrative formulated during the cultural wars of 1960's and 70's. In the concluding section, the author asserted that continued ignorance on the part of conventional political elites may left them ill prepared for the tempestuous times ahead.
