The Aryan Ethos:
Loyalty to One’s Own Nature

2,384 words

Today, more than ever, one must understand that social problems, in their essence, are rooted in problems of ethics and world-view. Anyone who thinks that social problems can be solved through purely technical means, is like a doctor who only wants to treat the patent symptoms of a disease, rather than examining and treating its deep causes.

New York: HarperCollins e-books, 2009

Fans of Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury will recognize Mark Rudd as the inspiration behind the character “Megaphone” Mark Slackmeyer. Rudd is a Jewish radical from an upper-middle class background who was one of the founders of a Jewish-led, New Left terrorist group that came to be called The Weather Underground.[1] Read more …

Remembering William Butler Yeats:
June 13, 1865–January 28, 1939

William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939

170 words

William Butler Yeats, the Irish poet, playwright, and politician, was born on this day in 1865. One of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Yeats’ life and work straddle the great divide between Romanticism and Modernism. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

In life and in art, Yeats rejected modern rationalism, materialism, and egalitarianism. He saw them as coarsening and brutalizing.

Drink Leninade! You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Lives!

2,047 words

So I had an extremely curious moment recently when an acquaintance of mine showed me a bottle of soda she had found. It’s called Leninade, or, in Russian, ЛЕНИНАД, and features an image of our dear friend Vladimir Ilich chugging down a bottle of this cool, refreshing drink. Clearly a kitsch product relying on fuzzy Cold War memories to sell units, the concept of this soda is as tasteless as they come (as for the soda itself, keep reading). Read more …

A White Nationalist Praises Charlie Kirk & Offers Constructive Criticism

3,208 words

Introduction

If you’re trying to build a race-blind movement, the scariest thing is for the media to link you to white advocates. You may fear that the mercurial public will write you off as an extremist, causing you to lose momentum.  Read more …

Identity & the Problem with Christianity

Andrea Mantegna, The Adoration of the Magi, circa 1495-1500

2,843 words

Race is a large component of identity that has been neglected in recent decades, so naturally, identitarians ought to care about race. Identity is valuable because it gives coherence to our relationships with our ancestors and descendants, it builds social trust and solidarity in our communities, and it helps establish who we are as individuals.

The Ancients on Speaking Rightly

1,605 words

We are all faced with the challenge of speaking, and living, truths which are felt to be offensive by a great many of our countrymen, not to mention the powers that be. This is not a new problem. By definition, the natural diversity of men means that knowledge of the truth is highly unequally distributed and those who know most about the truth are necessarily a tiny minority. This minority must alone face the prejudices and ignorance of the masses and the violence of the state. Read more …

The Way of Mitchum:
So Manly You Could Even Skip a Day!

3,893 words

James Scott Bell
Manliness: The Robert Mitchum Way
Woodland Hills, Cal.: Compendium Press, 2016

“A man must defend his home, his wife, his children and his Martini.” — Jackie Gleason

As the direct descendent of one of England’s greatest detectives,[1] I have of course followed with interest the development of the genre, especially the rather more brutal American branch, so different from granddad’s genteel country house affairs.[2]

Hello (((Fellow Boomers)))

1,188 words

Steven Brill’s Tailspin is cant and claptrap, less important for what it says than what it avoids.

There’s an old Twitter joke, or meme, called “Fellow White People.” It plays off how Jews in the media will call themselves “white” when it’s time to browbeat the goyim about racism, xenophobia, whatever. But when they want to talk mainly amongst themselves, and bang on about how they’re a special minority—well then! White people are the other, the enemy.  Read more …

Stravinsky

Igor Stravinsky is justly regarded as one of the giants of twentieth-century music. His influence upon contemporary music has been enormous; composers influenced by him include Carl Orff, John Tavener, Aaron Copland, Edgard Varèse, Frank Zappa, and others. He is best known for his three ballets: The Firebird, Petrushka, and The Rite of Spring, Read more …

On the Pardon of Jack Johnson

2,375 words

Last month President Trump pardoned Jack Johnson, the first Negro heavyweight boxing champion, for his 1912 violation of the Mann Act. This gesture garnered little attention outside of boxing circles, largely because Johnson and his 106-year-old crime now resides mostly among the cobwebs of public memory. Jack Johnson these days is a white pop singer and former surfer from Hawaii. Read more …

A Mary Sue, a Unicorn, & a Folie à deux:
Lessons in the Realities of Business for Young White Men

2,402 words

John Carreyrou
Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2018

White advocates should take a look at a sordid tale that played out in Silicon Valley from 2006 until 2015. The mess centers around a start-up company called Theranos and its CEO, Elizabeth Holmes. Since a main goal of Counter-Currents is to impart wisdom to younger white men, this author felt it was important to write a review on Wall Street Journal investigative reporter John Carreyrou’s book about the matter.

Victorian Respectability

1,551 words

“On the surface, Bram Stoker was a pillar of late Victorian respectability. . . . But just below the surface, he had something on his mind.”

The preceding sentences are from Christopher Frayling’s BBC documentary on Stoker’s Dracula, which was broadcast on A&E in 1996.

In a more recent television documentary on M. R. James, Read more …

Reassessing Otto Dix

Otto Dix, Self-Portrait with My Son

2,221 words

Otto Dix was a German artist who is now celebrated as one of the great painters of the twentieth century, probably in no small part because he was put on the National Socialists’ list of degenerate artists, as, to the unthinking postmodern Left, anything the National Socialists hated is automatically considered good. Equally though, the postmodern cultureless cartoon Nazis of today’s corrupted Right consider him a degenerate artist also simply because his artworks were deemed Entartete Kunst by the NSDAP.

An Update on The World in Flames & a Call for Help

342 words

Our anthology of Francis Parker Yockey’s shorter writings, many previously unpublished, The World in Flames (click for details), has been briefly delayed due to the recent discovery of some previously unknown summaries of and excerpts from issues of Frontfighter, the journal of Yockey’s organization, the European Liberation Front, in FBI files. These are currently being added to the book. Also, we would like to ask if any Counter-Currents readers have a copy of an essay that Yockey wrote on China in 1959, shortly before his death.

On Black Pills & “Punching Right”

The Truth About the Kalergi Plan

Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

2,079 words

The facts of history are invariably more paradoxical and interesting than the retrospective mythology that comes afterwards. Browsing an excellent collection of Julius Evola’s essays, I came across an astonishing interview which the Baron held with his fellow aristocrat, the long-time “European federalist” Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi.

Ireland Aborts its Future

1,110 words

It might seem incongruous to quote Ronald Reagan at a time like this. But hear me out. Reagan infamously claimed back in the 1980s that if fascism ever came to America it would come dressed as liberalism. His claim was not only insightful but ominously accurate. This past week has been heart-wrenching for me and it is now with a very deep sense of foreboding that I look forward to the future of life in Ireland — a country I no longer recognize anymore.  Read more …

Revolution is in the Air

Members of the West Ohio Minutemen Militia outside the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in 2016.

2,384 words

Is it idle, or at least premature, to talk about “revolution from the Right”? Whether it is or is not, that is exactly what leaders of the Right have been talking about for some years, from Pat Buchanan’s “Middle American Revolution” and his imagery of the “Buchanan Brigades” and peasants with pitchforks rebelling against “King George,” to Newt Gingrich and his now-forgotten jabber about the “Republican Revolution.” Read more …
