Principles are More Important Than People

2,610 words

There is a lot of wisdom in the anonymous saying: “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.”

But understanding this saying requires some nuances. One can’t understand politics without discussing all three categories: ideas, events, and people.

Thus great minds do not discuss only ideas. Read more …

How Twitter Censors Right-Wing Users

1,110 words

When people talk about censorship on Twitter, it is often naïvely assumed that this must mean straightforward banning of users, or clumsy deletion of individual tweets. In fact, individual tweets are very rarely deleted, except in tandem with sanctioning the user responsible (usually with a lifelong ban, or a precursor to it). As for the banning of users, that is certainly widespread and occurs literally daily at this point.

American Christianity

2,662 words

The strange sight of the Pope, on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, welcoming eight North African children sporting T-shirts boasting, “welcome, protect, promote, and integrate” rather summed up the dismal state of the leadership of the faith that some say was once the embodiment of Europe.

“A New Type of Right Has Emerged”:
A Conversation with Alain de Benoist

2,650 words

Translated from the Hungarian by György Balázs Kun

The following interview appeared in the Hungarian conservative quarterly journal Kommentár, in its second issue for 2019. It was recorded in December 2018. The footnotes were added by Counter-Currents.

“The Old Right is dead, long live the New Right!” could be our cry after seeing the joyful political changes of the last decade. Read more …

Multimodal Ethics

2,482 words

There’s no love lost between me and Jordan Peterson. I have contempt for him and his kind that I don’t really feel for outright enemies of the Dissident Right. He is a deceiver and a speaker of half-truths who doesn’t even have the decency or chutzpah to craft a lurid lie. Read more …

Antifa Terror is Here to Stay

1,938 words

Antifa terrorism is not a Right-wing fantasy. It’s all too real after last week. A lone anarchist attacked an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Tacoma, Washington. The armed anarchist launched explosives at ICE vehicles before he was gunned down by security. The only fatality was the terrorist himself.

Artist & Autist:
Crowley in the Light of Neville, Part 2

Neville

4,196 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

It is with relief that one turns to Neville’s biography; the bright Sun, soft breezes and blue ocean of the Caribbean replace the dark and soggy little Plymouth Brethren colony.[1]

Neville speaks of his father many times – itself a clue – but here is one of my favorites, and it includes much interesting material for our considerations:

Remembering Willis Carto:
July 17, 1926–October 26, 2015

carto19601,980 words

If you know the broad outlines of Willis Allison Carto’s life (biography review here), you know that he was, for well over a half-century, the founder and patron of those political movements we now variously call paleoconservatism, race realism, Dissident Right, or White Nationalism.

Pause and consider. When you imbibe the heady sophistication and philosophical analyses here at Counter-CurrentsRead more …

True Muslims, True Scotsmen

The Adana Massacre of 1909, in which Muslim Turks massacred tens of thousands of Armenian Christians – an example of True Islam?

2,584 words

Earlier this month, Counter-Currents published an interview in which Greg Johnson made some negative comments regarding Islam. He described Islam as an “inherently political” religion and a “memetic virus” which cannot be permitted in white societies since it will “destroy white societies and create societies that are foreign to, and unpleasant for, white people.”

In response, Alexander Wolfheze offered a qualified defense of Islam in which he concedes that “what many Westerners have experienced as ‘Islam’ is negative.” Read more …

The Church cannot cooperate with this new form of slavery that mass migration has become. Read more …

The Original Optics Cucks, Part 3:
Narcissism & Honor

Rousseau’s Émile

3,539 words

Part 3 of 3 (Part 2 here)

This conversation took place in the spring of 2015. We would like to thank KC for making this transcript. 

Greg Johnson: When people talk about vanity, another term that they’ll use is narcissism. “So and so is very narcissistic.” Again, I think that there’s a certain sense of narcissism in which it’s not a bad thing. The myth of Narcissus is that he’s captivated by his own reflection in the water, and he basically exists as a prisoner of his own image, reflected in something external. Read more …

Soporific Cinema

2,127 words

I like to fall asleep in front of the TV, and I’ve established a ritual for it. After a hard day of writing inspirational articles for Counter-Currents (under various pennames), I mix myself a drink that consists of vodka, soda water, lots of lime juice, and lots of ice. I thought I had invented this carb-less drink until, to my embarrassment, I discovered it already had a name: “The Skinny Bitch.” Apparently, it is also enjoyed by rail-thin rich bitches sitting poolside at the country club (like that mother on Arrested Development).

The Man, the Meme, Morrissey

3,974 words

You would think that after more than thirty-five years in the public eye that there would be no more surprises left. You would think that now that he’s turning 60, all the youthful rebellion would be long gone. And you would think that after the last two months of the media losing their collective marbles over Moz’s red-pilled statements and his support for the Right-wing populist party For Britain, that Morrissey would be ready to lay low for a while.

What is the Metaphysics of the Right?

5,486 words

In my essay “What is the Metaphysics of the Left?” I identified the fundamental presuppositions underlying the Leftist worldview. In the present essay, I intend to build on that analysis by showing how it can enable us, with relative ease, to identify our own metaphysics, the metaphysics of the Right. In short, my approach is indirect: I intend to arrive at our own most fundamental presuppositions by, in essence, negating the metaphysics we reject and revile. Read more …

What is the Metaphysics of the Left? Part One

3,629 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Metaphysics is the science of what is real. It is the most fundamental branch of philosophy; other philosophical ideas are derived from or based upon metaphysical convictions. For example, the Epicurean principle that pleasure is the highest good follows from its materialism and rejection of belief in an afterlife. However, it is also possible to speak of metaphysics outside of the context of philosophical systems. Read more …
