Guillaume Faye (French: [faj]; 7 November 1949 – 7 March 2019) was a French journalist, writer, and advocate of identitarianism as part of the French New Right. Continuing the tradition of Giorgio Locchi, Faye was instrumental in positioning Islam as the nemesis of the Western world. His various articles and books suggested an incoherence of ideology in postwar Europe and a quest for a nemesis necessary for the templative fascism to win support. Earlier in his career, anti-Semitism permeated his work; later on, criticism of Islam took that role. Faye has also inspired emulations in translation, such as the American Jason Reza Jorjani, former editor of the New Right publisher Arktos Media, who propagated a version of spiritualistic identitarianism, similar to conceptions found in Faye's book Archeofuturism (1998), in his own book World State of Emergency (2017).
With a PhD from the Paris Institute of Political Studies, Guillaume Faye was one of the major theorists of the French New Right (Nouvelle Droite) in the 1970–80s. A former member of Alain de Benoist's New Right organisation GRECE, he took part in the splitting of the organization in 1986 alongside Yann-Ber Tillenon, Tristan Mordrelle, and Goulven Pennaod. At that time he was close to nationalist neo-Pagans. Simultaneously, he made his way up as a journalist, namely in Figaro Magazine, Paris-Match, VSD etc. Faye also led a journal called J'ai Tout Compris! (I Understood Everything!) which closed down soon after.
In 1987, Faye withdrew from politics. In 1990, he took part in Skyrock radio station as 'Skyman'. He also appeared in Telematin episodes on the France 2 TV channel from 1991 to 1993. In 1998, he finally returned to politics after publishing some essays on various subjects such as culture and religion. Several of these essays were collected into his major work, Archeofuturism, which was published in English translation in 2010. This book lays out his fundamental ideas, including his opposition to immigration, his dismissal of contemporary European politics, his call for a pan-European government, and his concept of archeofuturism, which involves combining traditionalist spirituality and concepts of sovereignty with the latest advances in science and technology.
In 2000, Faye relaunched J'ai Tout Compris! as a monthly edition where he expresses his ideas: Faye predicts an abolition of European societies due to massive immigration, and a total war between the West and the Islamic world, endorsing the "clash of civilization" theory.
He took part in the Rivarol journal and regularly collaborated with Pierre Vial's Terre et Peuple neo-Pagan group. He also participated in conferences abroad, such as with the US nationalist group American Renaissance on 3 March 2006.
In 2007, he published La Nouvelle question juive (The New Jewish question) in which he strongly criticized Holocaust deniers and many Third Positionists and anti-Zionists (such as Alain Soral or Christian Bouchet), who he accused of sympathy for Islamism. As a response, he was accused of being a "national-Zionist".
Several of Faye's books have been translated into English and published by Arktos. These include Archeofuturism – European visions of the post-catastrophic age (2010), Why we Fight – manifesto of the European resistance (2011) and Convergence of Catastrophes (2012).
