The Nexus was a journal edited by Kerry Bolton in Paraparaumu Beach, New Zealand. It focused largely on the politically heretical with special attention given to the intersection of Nazism and Mysticism. After its 18th issue (November 1999) it became titled Western Destiny.
Each issue contained 28-32 pages, usually with articles, interviews, reviews (of books, magazines, and music) and biographical sketches relevant to fascist, eurocentric, Aryanist, Traditionalist, Third Positionist, and assorted similar poilitcal inclinations, with special attention given to their occult connections (to Satanism, Odinism, Esotericism, Ariosophy, and Thelemic Magik in particular). It also covers news and opinion critical of the activities of "the plutocratic/Zionist combine" (seen as pushing a Globalist "New World Order" hostile to the Folkish Nationalism advocated by the journal), with attention given to their occult connections (to Judaism, Kabbalism, Freemasonry and Wicca in particular).
Changes of title
The first issue was published in August of 1995, incorporating The Heretic and The Flaming Sword. After its 18th issue (November 1999) it became titled Western Destiny.
Billing itself as a "Journal of the Kulturkampf, Realpolitik, (and) Esoterrorism", its stated purposes were:
- to explore the "Darkside" or "Shadow" of History, Politics and Kulchur
- to question the holy dogmas and slay the sacred cows of the status quo
- to expose the forces intent on leading humanity toward global conformity
- to serve as a focal point for new forces - artistic, political, spiritual - emerging to challenge the Old Order
- to consider ways in which the Traditional can be synthesized with the Futuristic in pursuit of a Kulchural Revolution for the seeding of a New Imperium."
