Remembering Aleister Crowley:
October 12, 1875–December 1, 1947

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

364 words

Aleister Crowley was an English poet, novelist, painter, and mountaineer who is most famous as an occultist, ceremonial magician, and founder of the religion and philosophy of Thelema. But ironically Crowley’s supposed Satanism and Black Magic are far less frightening to most people than his politics. For Aleister Crowley was also a man of the Right.

Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto is set in present-day Los Tuxtlas, Mexico in the year 1511 and depicts the final days of Maya civilization through the eyes of a man named Jaguar Paw.

Poverty Does Not Cause Crime

2,218 words

What George Lakey Gets Wrong about White Nationalists

The statue of Thorfinn Karlsefni in Philadelphia.

1,287 words

Last week, morning joggers running  along Kelly Drive in Philadelphia came across the once-prominent statue of the Viking explorer, Thorfinn Karlsefni – torn down and lying upon the ground. The general consensus is that the statue’s toppling was conducted in the same spirit that led to a spate of vandalism against Confederate monuments earlier this year, given that it has also previously been defaced by anti-white graffiti. This statue is also where Keystone United (formerly the Keystone State Skinheads) meet as part of their annual Leif Erickson Day celebration. Read more …

Is it possible to romanticize aboriginal peoples and still tell the truth about them?

A Reminder that England Still Exists:
Detectorists

1,704 words

Metapolitics – the technique of altering our culture, to prepare the way for political change – is the primary strategy of the White Nationalist movement. It’s what most smart cookies promote to get us out of this godawful mess. But to change the culture, we must become part of it.

As we are not, currently, part of the establishment’s culture, the tendency of the Right is to view existing popular culture from an “identitarian” perspective. But is this justified? Read more …

The Brief, Shining Moment of Lindsey Graham

I’ve always thought of Lindsey Graham as a milquetoast and a useless RINO. But – surprise, surprise – last Thursday he emerged as the man of the hour, with his impassioned defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Graham’s unscripted remarks (totaling less than five minutes) are fascinating in part because they give us a window into the mind of a conventional establishment conservative – Read more …

Letter to the CivNats

1,344 words

One of the strange aspects of the last century of American politics is that the defining arguments have all happened on the losing side. The winners have always been sure about what they want and what they are willing to do to get it. It is the losers who have always been squabbling with one another about the proper response or the meaning of the latest failure. National Review types always used to argue that all the interesting debates were on their side, rather than on the side of their alleged adversaries.  Read more …

It’s just that, in one way or another, suicide enters my mind on a regular basis as a possibility, as a question, or as a social phenomenon. Read more …

Notes on Revolution in Chuck Palahniuk’s Adjustment Day

1,088 words

Chuck Palahniuk’s Adjustment Day is a highly imaginative and entertaining novel that reflects a long and deep immersion in the online world of White Nationalism, from the best of it to the worst and all shades in between.

I don’t have much to add to the reviews of Adjustment Day by Jef Costello and James O’Meara, so I wish to focus here on some of Palahniuk’s thoughts about how an ethnonationalist revolution might occur, and how it might go wrong.  Read more …

Kavanaugh the Fighter

2,167 words

By now, most have at least heard the highlights of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, where they listened to testimonies and questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, over allegations that he had attempted to rape her in 1982. The hearing lasted roughly nine hours and included some very dramatic moments. I watched most of it, but stopped around halfway through Kavanaugh’s time on the stand because the questions had become so repetitive, and it was clear no new information was going to come to light.

Last month, Ron Unz of the Unz Review posted a 17,600 word article about Holocaust denial as part of his American Pravda series.
