188 words

celinejoecolemanLouis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894.

Tough Talk from a Hard Man (On the Internet)

RallyingCryRallyingCry1,168 words

Ever since I got involved with White Nationalism, I have been hearing the same speech. I call it the “Tough Talk,” which is invariably delivered by a “Hard Man” (usually borrowing his language and persona from the military and/or football).  Read more …

Greg Johnson’s New Right vs. Old Right in French Translation

le-nationalisme-blanc188 words

An excellent index of Counter-Currents’ rising profile and influence is the growing number of foreign language translations of our books. The latest is my own book, New Right vs. Old Right, which has been translated into French under the title Le Nationalisme Blanc: Interrogations et Définitions [White Nationalism: Questions and Definitions] (Saint-Genis-Laval: Éditions Akribeia, 2016). It is a beautifully printed and bound volume.

Remembering Julius Evola:
May 19, 1898–June 11, 1974

861 words

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on May 19, 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website. In commemoration of his birthday, I wish to draw your attention to the following resources.

Counter-Currents has published the following writings of Evola’s:  Read more …

George Hawley
Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism
Lawrence, Kansas: University Press of Kansas, 2016

Most academic studies of White Nationalism and the New Right do not rise above politically correct sneers and smears. They read like ADL or SPLC reports fed through a postmodern buzzword generator. Read more …

Never Forget the 761!

163 words

We-Will-Never-ForgetThe original Occidental Observer comment thread from my essay “Dealing with the Holocaust” got up to 761 comments. It was deleted more than three years later by Kevin MacDonald, who wanted to get rid of unmoderated, crank- and troll-riddled comment threads. One can, however, read it on Archive.org’s Wayback Machine. The snapshot of June 26, 2015 is the last one containing the thread.  Read more …

Why Ramzpaul is Right
(& Why it Doesn’t Matter)

1,670 words

RamzRamzpaul is basically right in his quarrel with the “1488” wing of White Nationalism. He’s obviously frustrated with purity signaling spirals and LARPing. I believe he’s wrong to accuse 1488ers of being enemy plants, although some of them probably are. I think, however, that his deepest frustration stems from the sense that White Nationalist ideas have the potential to sweep through our society and redefine the political mainstream, Read more …
