Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit

91 words

Ninety per cent of men (and women) are both lazy and cowardly, and out of sheer moral and intellectual apathy they behave just as circumstances suggest.

—Savitri Devi

State, Movement, People, Part 2

5,850 words

Carl Schmitt, 1888–1985

Part 2 of 4

Translated with notes by Simona Draghici

II. The Triadic Structure of the Political Unity

1. The political unity of the present-day state is a three-part summation of state, movement, and people. It is radically different from the liberal-democratic state schema that has come to us from the nineteenth century, and not only with respect to its ideological presuppositions and its general principles, but also in the essential structural and organizational lines of the concrete edifice of the state.

Jack Donovan Was Right

2,002 words

“White Nationalism” is doomed.

And that’s okay.

As Vox Day and many others have pointed out over the years, the concept of “white nationalism” is a distinctly American notion. Read more …

Thoughts on Post-Nationalism

920 words

In this short article I present my thoughts about our post-modern, post-liberal, and – I would say – post-nationalist age.

Perhaps the first step is to describe what I mean by “post-nationalism.”

State, Movement, People, Part 1

5,666 words

Part 1 of 4

Translated with notes by Simona Draghici

Editor’s Note:

Carl Schmitt published State, Movement, People (Staat, Bewegung, Volk) near the end of 1933. Like many of his most important works, it is short and pithy (less than 25,000 words). Read more …

Wardrobe Restoration

99 words

The art nouveau oak moulding, chipped and cracked,
barely hanging from a rusty nail,
begs restoration. Klimt’s young maids untacked,
1910 doors, the flailing clothing rail,

fin de siècle mirror, long have lacked
a master’s living hand. In the hot stale
air of the cluttered loft its owner packed
and fled, dust lies decades deep in a pail. Read more …

Punching Right, 2

Is the Gospel According to Mark an Allegory?

2,952 words

In my last essay, I presented the argument for why the strength of the historical evidence for the life of Jesus provided by the Gospels basically reduces to the strength of the evidence provided by the anonymously-authored book, written shortly after AD 70, that subsequently acquired the title “The Gospel According to Mark” most likely sometime in the 2nd century AD (henceforth, “Mark”).

So now it’s time to ask how strong that evidence is. Read more …

Prelude to A Song of Fire & Ice

2,567 words

A Song of Ice and Fire (ASOIAF), better known for its TV counterpart Game of Thrones, became a pop culture phenomenon late in the last decade. It has since garnered a worldwide fan base and a cult of die-hard fans that seek clues and dream up theories of the story’s arc and plots. Of course, this isn’t the first time medieval fantasy has swept the modern world by storm. Read more …

In Defense of Losers, 2

1,669 words

Aedon Cassiel’s excellent Counter-Currents article “In Defense of Losers” made me think a lot about the nature of dissident political movements in general, and white ethno-nationalism in particular.

One of Cassiel’s points, made in the second half of his article, was that the more intelligent or successful whites—winners, presumably—tend to insulate themselves from the negative effects of racial diversity Read more …

Is Jesus a Myth?

Isis with the infant Horus, faience, Ptolemaic period

3,069 words

I’ve spent most of my time at Counter-Currents focusing on issues that unite us rather than those that divide us. This hasn’t been out of any tepid desire to avoid controversy: I really do think the issues that unite us are far more important than those on which our community is split. Thus, I’ve been hesitant to risk sowing discord over side issues where we need unity more than ever.

But the truth of our side’s take on the issues that unite us—if you ask me—is obvious, and this just doesn’t always lend itself to interesting conversation. Read more …

Viking Supermen

2,272 words

Viking — the word itself still conjures up the stereotypical image of bloodthirsty blonde barbarians, whose rage can only be sated by acts of pillage and rapine. Fortunately, this dated historical perspective has been somewhat revised, and establishment historians now tacitly acknowledge that Norse civilization was much more complex than previously thought, and a lot less one-dimensional.

Winchester, UK: Zero Books, 2017

The election of Donald Trump came as a shock to many and to Leftists in particular who were certain that Trump had no possible chance of winning. Since November those on the Left who were once so sure of their perspective have been forced to reevaluate their understanding of American politics. Read more …

Courtesy to Women

2,984 words

If a great and powerful ruler is riding his horse, and he comes upon a woman crossing the road, should he continue riding, or should he stop? If he continues riding, his horse may knock her over. If he stops, he will be acknowledging that she has rights that he is obliged to respect, despite his power.

The answer to this question in European societies is that the powerful ruler should stop. The answer in traditional Muslim societies appears to have been that he should continue riding.  Read more …

In Defense of “Losers”

2,168 words

Originally, I had planned for this essay to be a response to Jack Donovan’s still relatively recent essay, “Why I Am Not a White Nationalist.” However, I’ve decided that this essay would work better if thought of as an extended discussion of a couple of the topics raised by Donovan’s essay, rather than as another open letter response aimed at Donovan himself.
