Barry Mor­ris Gold­wa­ter (Jan­u­ary 2, 1909 – May 29, 1998) was an Amer­i­can politi­cian, busi­ness­man, and author who was a five-term Unit­ed States Sen­a­tor from Ari­zona (1953 – 65, 1969 – 87) and the Repub­li­can Par­ty’s nom­i­nee for Pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States in 1964. Despite his loss of the 1964 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion in a land­slide, Gold­wa­ter is the politi­cian most often cred­it­ed with spark­ing the resur­gence of the Amer­i­can con­ser­v­a­tive polit­i­cal move­ment in the 1960s.

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola (19 May 1898 – 11 June 1974), bet­ter known as Julius Evola, was an Ital­ian philoso­pher, painter, and eso­teri­cist. Accord­ing to the schol­ar Fran­co Fer­raresi, “Evola’s thought can be con­sid­ered one of the most rad­i­cal and con­sis­tent anti-egal­i­tar­i­an, anti-lib­er­al, anti-demo­c­ra­t­ic, and anti-pop­u­lar sys­tems in the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry. It is a sin­gu­lar (though not nec­es­sar­i­ly orig­i­nal) blend of sev­er­al schools and tra­di­tions, includ­ing Ger­man ide­al­ism, East­ern doc­trines, tra­di­tion­al­ism, and the all-embrac­ing Weltan­schau­ung of the inter­war con­ser­v­a­tive rev­o­lu­tion­ary move­ment with which Evola had a deep per­son­al involve­ment”.

Michael Joseph Oakeshott FBA (11 Decem­ber 1901 – 19 Decem­ber 1990) was an Eng­lish philoso­pher and polit­i­cal the­o­rist who wrote about phi­los­o­phy of his­to­ry, phi­los­o­phy of reli­gion, aes­thet­ics, phi­los­o­phy of edu­ca­tion, and phi­los­o­phy of law. Oakeshott was dis­mayed by the polit­i­cal extrem­ism that occurred in Europe dur­ing the 1930s, and his sur­viv­ing lec­tures from this peri­od reveal a dis­like of Nation­al Social­ism and Marx­ism.
