We’re All Jets Now:
The Racial Politics of West Side Story

5,930 words

So Stephen Spielberg is remaking West Side Story.

Let me guess, Stephen. You believe that in the era of Trump, this classic tale of nativists versus immigrants — and about how “we should all just get along because we really aren’t all that different when you really think about it” — is more relevant than ever. Did I guess right, Stephen? Did I?

Stephen G. Bloom
Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America

Joséphin Péladan & the Occult War Against Liberal Decadence

Joséphin Péladan, as painted by Marcellin Desboutin in 1891

1,665 words

France gave the world the French Revolution in 1789. It was an epochal event, albeit a symptom of a line of cultural decadence that gave birth to both liberalism and Communism, and which remains a pall over the entire West and wherever the West reaches. It is ironic that those who were condemned as “collaborators” in France during and after the Second World War were for years prior to the war the most vociferous in their lamentations regarding the decadence of the French Republic.

Jean Piaget & the Superior Psychogenetic Cognition of Europeans, Part I

Jean Piaget

4,677 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Everyone has heard about Jean Piaget’s (1896-1980) theory of the cognitive development of children. But no one knows that his theory placed Europeans at the top of the cognitive ladder with most humans stuck at the bottom — unless Europeans taught them how to think.

Piaget is widely recognized as the “greatest child psychologist of the twentieth century.” Unlike many other influential figures, Piaget’s discoveries have withstood the test of time. Read more …

A Reminder that England Still Exists:

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 …
