Our Sheep Are the Best

2,332 words

Now and then I encounter fellow travelers who have become fed up with our movement due to what they perceive as the incorrigible stupidity of white people. Let us take stock. Whites are on a fast track to being replaced by some other people (in Europe by black and Arab Muslims, in America by mestizos). Their culture is literally being torn down all around them.

Friedrich Schleiermacher:
The Father of Modern Theology & a Prophet of German Nationalism, Part 2

4,506 words

Part 2 of 2. Part 1 here.

Schleiermacher’s Philosophy of Mind

According to Schleiermacher, the task of philosophy is the “immersion of the Spirit into the innermost depths of itself and of things in order to fathom the relations of their [spirit and nature] being-together.”[1] Schleiermacher’s philosophy, like German idealism in general, was very influenced by, and a reaction to, the critical transcendental philosophy of Immanuel Kant.

The Poz

1,635 words

The term “poz” originated as a slang term for “positive,” as in “HIV positive.” There’s a POZ magazine, POZ Personals, and a PozMatch dating site. A California DMV allowed a man in Santa Clara to use “HIV POZ” as his license plate.

An article at the “Black Youth Project” has its author tell us how “The fact that [he is] HIV positive is a result of anti-Black state sanctioned violence.” Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2017 Fundraiser
Encountering Counter-Currents

Greg asked me to pen this week’s fundraiser update to bring a fresh voice and perspective. Since last week’s update, we have received 23 donations (including 12 all-important pledges of monthly support) totaling $2,045.04. This brings the total for our fundraiser to $44,973.56. That puts us just short of 75% of the way to our goal of $60,000. Read more …

“I feel sure that Germany, the kernel of Europe, will arise once more in a new and beautiful state, but when this will happen, and whether the country will not first have to experience even greater difficulties […] God alone knows.” — Friedrich Schleiermacher, 1806[1]

Decline of the Western Male, Part 2

Part 2 of 2. Part 1 here

Transhumanism — The Final Showdown

The West, in its essence, is neither a human nor a natural society. The current debate – is gender real ? – is not directed at finding truth but is instead a program of action – “we will make it so that there is no such thing as gender.” Masculinity and femininity, their polarity, will be abolished.

Verdi in the Gold Rush

Giuseppe Verdi in Golden Gate park, San Francisco

George Martin
Verdi at the Golden Gate: Opera and San Francisco in the Gold Rush Years
Berkeley: University of California Press, 1993

George Martin is an independent historian who has written a number of books about the history of opera (including a great biography of Verdi). His account of how opera and in particular Verdi’s operas rose to prominence in San Francisco during the Gold Rush years describes a fascinating but not widely known episode in the history of the American West.  Read more …

The Altright Corporation & the American Deep State

2,291 words

The perfect Deep State mascot: a mushroom cloud with stinging tentacles

On Monday, October 16, Jason Reza Jorjani published an explosive article, “The Coming Persian War,” on his website. It should have been front-page news the next day at The New York Times and The Washington Post, and possibly for weeks to come.

Jorjani’s article focuses on Donald Trump’s ominous Iran speech on Friday, October 13, but I want to focus on some of the truly amazing background details that Jorjani gives linking his work with the Iranian Renaissance movement and the Altright Corporation to a shadowy network of power-brokers and influence agents with connections to business, politics, and secret societies that people today loosely call the “Deep State.”  Read more …

Dems R (Also) the Real Racists

1,698 words

The American South provides all kinds of excellent demonstrations for the white liberal’s suppressed, smug, victim-blaming attitudes towards marginalized peoples for their own poor outcomes and problems. Let me be clear: I’m not talking about the idea that rural “white trash” are the one group liberals feel free to openly stereotype and scapegoat, which Jim Goad explored in his Redneck Manifesto almost 20 years ago now.

No, I’m talking about liberals literally being racist towards blacks . . . and literally being too damn stupid to even realize it.  Read more …

Mozart Won’t Make You Smart
(But Rap Will Make You Dumb)

2,340 words

After listening to Greg Johnson’s recent conversation with Rob Kievsky entitled “Leveraging Social Decline,” in particular, the part of it in which they discuss parenting, I (being a parent) felt the need to weigh in. Around the 47-minute mark, the two got into a friendly dispute over the best way to be a parent. In reality, I think both were presenting sides that seemed antithetical but really weren’t because they were each addressing different problems with their arguments.  Read more …

The Alt Knight:
A Retrospect of Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns for the Current Year

3,187 words

Sometime in the near future, in an America crippled by degeneracy and stifling bureaucracy, two men of stature fight in the streets. One, an aging billionaire fed up with his society’s imminent collapse, has become a polarizing threat to the governing establishment. The other, a compromised but well-meaning foreigner wrapped in an American flag, bringing a false and used-up patriotism to a disenfranchised population.

Unintended Consequences:
How the Left Keeps Helping Us

2,054 words

Götz Kubitschek

Everything is going exactly according to plan. This is what super-villains always say, usually just before their plans are upset. (“Seize him, you fools! He’s getting away!”) So, I am may be tempting fate by saying such a thing, but actually I don’t think so. As of late it really does seem like something — Providence, the Invisible Hand, the Cunning of Reason, or what have you — has been at work behind the scenes, helping our cause. In truth, we don’t have a plan, but events are unfolding as if someone does, and as if that someone is smiling upon us (perhaps from atop his perch in Asgard).  Read more …

Rashomon & Realism

3,476 words

Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon (1950) is commonly found on lists of the world’s greatest movies, and deservedly so. Rashomon features avant-garde narrative techniques (flashbacks, multiple points of view), dynamic black-and-white cinematography by Kazuo Miyagawa, compelling Ravel-like music by Fumio Hayasaka, subtle and intensely dramatic performances, and a complex but tightly edited script, all combined into a fast-paced 88-minute masterpiece with an emotionally devastating climax.

The Idea of Homogeneity

Ethnic-Linguistic Map of Europe

2,270 words

Spanish translation here

White Nationalists believe that that best form of society is the sovereign ethnostate that is racially and ethnically homogeneous (that’s homogenEous, not homogenous, like milk). But is homogeneity really possible? Yes, of course, it is. Let’s talk about racial homogeneity first, then ethnic homogeneity.

How to Live as a Dissident

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

4,152 words

A friend of mine got doxed recently. I have other friends who live in fear of being exposed, vilified, and fired from their jobs. I’ve accepted the danger for over a decade now. But the danger is greater now than it has ever been before. The danger of physical violence is also now very real. Our people are being recognized and attacked on the street, and Antifa and others have called for violence — claiming that it’s okay if you’re attacking a “Nazi” (which now basically means any white person at all, especially one who isn’t racked with guilt over being white).

Blade Runner 2049

987 words

It is dangerous work, making a sequel to a classic like Blade Runner, Ridley Scott’s 1982 magnum opus. French Canadian director Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 is a very good film, but it inevitably falls short of the original.

I first discovered Villeneuve’s work with his 2016 science fiction film Arrival (discussed with John Morgan here). Arrival impressed me as a highly imaginative science fiction film with an original visual style, told with an appealingly deliberate art-film pacing, with a stunning plot twist and a powerful emotional payoff.

Blade Runner

blade_runner_xlg2,593 words

Czech translation here

Ridley Scott’s 1982 movie Blade Runner is a science fiction classic and surely the director’s finest work. Blade Runner excels on all levels. It is a highly imaginative vision of the future realized with a stunning visual style. The script is intelligent, even poetic. The cast is uniformly strong, with a number of powerful performances, particularly Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty. The gripping action sequences are acrobatic, balletic, and brutal. But the key to the film’s unsettling emotional power is its deep mythic subtext. Read more …

Love of All is Love of None

1,106 words

A man who claims to “love” all women equally is a man incapable of “loving” any particular woman at all—and a man whose “love” no particular woman wants. The same goes for any woman who claims to “love” all men. To love someone is to love him for what sets him apart from others. We want to be loved and valued for what makes us unique.  Read more …
