A Field Day for the Titanic Pessimist:
A Review of Guillaume Faye’s Archeofuturism 2.0

1,210 words

Guillaume Faye
Archeofuturism 2.0
Arktos Media, 2016

Renowned Right-wing author Guillaume Faye has written his first novel, Archeofuturism 2.0. So you might ask: is it a good one? Has he delivered? Is this something for Faye fans, maybe even science fiction fans, to buy?

We’d answer “yes” to all these questions. Read more …

An Alt Right Take on The Bridge Over the River Kwai

2,464 words

Pierre Boulle
The Bridge Over the River Kwai
The Vanguard Press, 1954

The Bridge Over the River Kwai – the novel, not the film – contains so many contradictions that it’s hard to keep them all in one’s mind.

For the Alt Right today, this semi-fictional story, written by Pierre Boulle, can serve as both an inspiration and a cautionary tale. Read more …

Between Pragmatism & the Transcendent:
A Review of Brett Stevens’ Nihilism

1,956 words

Brett Stevens
Nihilism: A Philosophy Based in Nothingness and Eternity
Colac, Australia: Manticore Press, 2016

The title of Brett Stevens’ new book, Nihilism: A Philosophy Based in Nothingness and Eternity, inclined me to think that this work would be in the same vein as other works of pessimist philosophy such as Thomas Ligotti’s The Conspiracy Against the Human Race, or Eugene Thacker’s Horror of Philosophy trilogy.

Been Down So Long It Looks Alt Right to Me

2,857 words

HAarlem VEnison
DEATHTOTHEWORLD: an interracial racist love story
Evohum Press, 2016

“I feel like the dirt on the ground. I can’t tell up from down anymore.”

In modern society, only the so-called or self-styled “racist” is the true free-thinker, the true outsider. If so, then the race-realists must assert their identification with, and take for their own, the literature – or literatures – of the Outsider.

My Top Three Non-Alt Right Books

2,480 words

Sharing books, in my opinion, does more than almost anything to keep cultures vibrant. Thanks in part to the ascendancy of Donald Trump, we on the Alt Right are at present experiencing an uptick of culture which is both exciting and a bit daunting. Several years ago, I had written off many of the goals of white nationalism, but now, I am not so sure. It’s a good time to be on the Alt Right.  Read more …

In Defense of Japanese Internment

3,343 words

Michelle Malkin
In Defense of Internment: The Case for ‘Racial Profiling’ in World War II and the War on Terror
Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, 2004

The Alt Right is now a social movement whose adherents are moving close to being part of the governing class. The Alt Right would not be growing, however, if the problems stemming from immigration, “Civil Rights,” Mid-East Policy, birthright citizenship laws, and multi-culturalism weren’t apparent after 9/11.

Ezra Pound’s Jefferson and/or Mussolini

1,971 words

Ezra Pound
Jefferson and/or Mussolini
London: Stanley Nott Ltd., 1935

Ezra Pound liked his books charged with meaning. “Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one’s hand,” he wrote in his Guide to Kulchur, another one of his, shall we say, B-Sides.
