The political system of the German Republic is so fashioned as to favor long periods of stable rule under the same head of state, but even by its own standards the term of office of Angela Merkel (uninterrupted since 2005) has been very long. Read more …

Identity & Tribalism:
A Response to Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield

2,372 words

Daniel Greenfield of FrontPage Magazine has an interesting take on the Jewish response to the tragic Tree of Life synagogue massacre last month.

Father Coughlin, Ralph Ingersoll, & the War Against Social Justice

Father Coughlin

1,815 words

The public career of Rev. Charles E. Coughlin during the 1930s and early ‘40s is massively documented. Newsreels, publications, speeches, and broadcast recordings are all at your fingertips online. Yet the historical significance of this Canadian-American prelate (1891-1979) is maddeningly elusive. You may have read that he was an immensely popular but controversial “radio priest” with a decidedly populist-nationalist bent, or that he published a weekly magazine called Social Justice (1936-1942), Read more …

Chuck Palahniuk’s Choke

1,692 words

Choke (2008)
Written & directed by Clark Gregg
Starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Kelly Macdonald, & Brad William Henke

Chuck Palahniuk, most recently the author of the ethnostate satire Adjustment Day and known mainly for Fight Club, inspired another feature film with his 2001 novel, Choke. The 2008 film of the same name focuses on sex addiction, a timely subject in the current era of spiritual emptiness, which is one of Palahniuk’s recurrent themes. Intentionally or not, this dark comedy serves to repel the viewer from sexual deviance more effectively than any Christian sermon about sin. Read more …

The War Movie

4,780 words

While Western expansion in the United States really started when English settlers travelled overland from Massachusetts to Connecticut in 1635, a true film of the Western genre is only set west of the 100th meridian in the years between the Confederate surrender at Appomattox and the coronation of Edward VII. While warfare has existed since time immemorial, a true War Movie is only set between 1933 and 1945, during the time of Hitler and the Second World War.

The Tyrannical Essence of Liberalism

Megyn Kelly & Don Lemon in happier times. One still has a career.

1,167 words

The problem that arises when you’re the greatest nation in the history of the world is that there’s no real problems to deal with. There’s no war. Anybody who wants a job can get one. Nobody starves to death. Everybody has access to medical care. Even beggars can make six figures a year.

But happily ever after breeds complacency. Once people get what they want, they tend to want something else. So, if life is good, and there’s no legitimate problems in paradise, abstract ones are created in La-La Land. Read more …

Attack of the Bugmen!
Heinlein & Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers

2,269 words

Robert Heinlein’s novel Starship Troopers is a genre-defining classic of science fiction. First published in 1959, Heinlein’s work is audacious in propounding aristocratic militarism, will-to-power, social inequality, and contempt for liberal and mercantile values. Starship Troopers describes the path of a young man, Johnny Rico, from uncertain recruit to achieving the rank of Field Officer in an interstellar war against the “Bugs,” a species of giant arachnids.

I took an interest in architecture a few years back, after reading Crawford’s The World Beyond Your Head. The book described the effects of the arrangement of space on how we perceived and acted in the world. The effects of arranged space could be negative—the distraction of eye-catching advertisements and flashing lights—or positive—the machine-like feeling of cooking in a well-stocked and well-organized kitchen.

Counter-Currents supporter Omar Filmersson made this short video to mark the importance of the appearance of Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto. He writes: “The Swedish translation of Dr. Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto is well in progress. Swedes are aging and dying in every sense, like an old man on his deathbed. This clip shows what will happen once the Swedish edition is out.”

Nelson Mandela meeting with Israeli PM Shimon Peres in Johannesburg in 2002.

During the 1980s, when the offensive against South Africa (SA) was at its height, the Right was focused on the prospect of the Soviet Union taking over the mineral wealth and strategic position of SA. I recall this because I was among those in New Zealand speaking in favor of SA, and using this specter as the main reason for opposing the anti-SA campaigns, albeit among the few who also defended white self-determination.

In the past, people used to blame the gods or the fates for their misfortunes. These days, they like to blame their parents.

  • “My parents were sedentary and fat, and their bad example is why I grew up sedentary and fat.”
  • “My father was always uptight. And now I’m uptight and can’t enjoy life.”
  • “Growing up with a mother who drank, it was natural that I would take to drink as well.”

The Fallacy of Progress

Our “progressive” obsessions for change neglect to consider consequences. Change is demanded for the sake of a fad or a slogan: “equality,” “democracy,” “reproductive rights” . . .

The Sci-Fi Channel’s Dune & Children of Dune

1,641 words

David Lynch’s Dune (1984) is a flawed masterpiece. When I first saw it, I was deeply disappointed. Frank Herbert’s original novel made a powerful impression on me. I could see Herbert’s world, and Lynch’s vision was not my vision. But when my initial impression faded and I returned to Lynch’s film with an open mind, I found it immensely imaginative and compelling. Even the score by Toto managed to grow on me.  Read more …

Killing Lincoln

1,160 words

One of the unmistakable features of modern conservatives is their not-so-veiled hostility toward heritage America. Some attribute this to ethnic hostility, given the infiltration of the Right by neoconservatives. Initially, these people made the journey from communism to anti-communism and were never conservative in temperament. Of course, the royal lifestyles of many conservatives has made them into unpleasant snobs. All of that is true to one degree or another, but it obscures an important point about modern conservatives.  Read more …
