Theory & Practice

1,455 words

Translations: French, Polish

The aim of Counter-Currents Publishing and our journal North American New Right is to create an intellectual movement in North America that is analogous to the European New Right. We aspire to learn from the European New Right’s strengths and limitations and to tailor its approach to the unique situation of European people in North America. Our aim is to lay the intellectual groundwork for a white ethnostate in North America.

Why I Write

penandsword1,908 words

I once naively believed that everyone thought more or less as I did and shared my basic values. Today I wonder if anyone does.

A threshold reason why I write is simply that the Good Lord granted me facility with the written word. Not with video or motion picture production, or music, or broadcasting, or entertainment, or even the spoken word, but simply with writing. Read more …

The Dark Knight

3,650 words

In my review of Christoper Nolan’s Batman Begins, I argued that the movie generates a dramatic conflict around the highest of stakes: the destruction of the modern world (epitomized by Gotham City) by the Traditionalist “League of Shadows” versus its preservation and “progressive” improvement by Batman.

Endgame

1,727 words

In the 20 years I have identified with the cause of American white nationalism and revolutionary Euronationalism, I’ve never felt that European Americans had much chance of freeing themselves from the System threatening their existence. Their best hope, I always thought, was that the System would eventually collapse from its own internal contradictions or that Europeans would show us the way.

French translation here

I want people to understand the elemental nature of our struggle. It is, in the end, not a war of words. It is a Mind-War, but not one that is decided by winning arguments. The Mind-War is decided by collective consciousness that leads to the needed individual and collective action.

The Cause of the Peoples?

1,236 words

Translated by Michael O’Meara

Editor’s Note:

The idea of the “cause of the peoples” is associated primarily with Alain de Benoist. It is an attempt to fuse European ethnonationalism with a kind of liberal universalism by asserting that European ethnonationalists are not merely fighting for their own cause, but for the cause of all peoples to preserve their distinctness Read more …

On the Secret of Degeneration

Julius Evola, 1898–1974

2,093 words

Anyone who has come to reject the rationalist myth of “progress” and the interpretation of history as an unbroken positive development of mankind will find himself gradually drawn towards the world-view that was common to all the great traditional cultures, and which had at its center the memory of a process of degeneration, slow obscuration, or collapse of a higher preceding world.

Batman Begins

1,222 words

French translation here

After being blown away by director Christopher Nolan’s Inception, I decided to give his Batman Begins (2005) another chance. The first time I saw this film, I did not like it. Not one bit. I must have been distracted, because this time I loved it. Nolan breaks with the campy style of earlier Batman films, focusing on character development and motivations, which makes Batman Begins and its sequel The Dark Knight both psychologically dark and intellectually and emotionally compelling.

Interview with Robert Steuckers

Troy Southgate: When and why did you decide to become involved in politics?

Robert Steuckers: I was never actually involved in politics, as I was never a member of a political party. Nevertheless I am a citizen interested in political questions but of course not in the usual plain and trivial way, as I have no intention to become a candidate, council deputy or Member of Parliament.

Ludovici on Feminism & Emasculation

Cristofano Allori. "Judith with the Head of Holofernes," 1613

1,470 words

Each sex has the instincts, emotions and mental powers related to the kind of life that it will have to lead, and the corresponding limitation in selecting and rejecting. For instance, the male as the active par­ticipator in coition is the wooer and initiator; he has to awaken desire for himself in the female, and finds his pleasure in these roles. The fe­male finds pleasure in being captivated, in surrendering herself, in yielding to initiation, provided that she approves of the male.

Louis-Ferdinand Céline—An Anarcho-Nationalist

1,766 words

In his imaginary self-portrayal, the French novelist Louis-Ferdinand Céline (1894–1961) would be the first one to reject the assigned label of anarcho-nationalism. For that matter he would reject any outsider’s label whatsoever regarding his prose and his personality. He was an anticommunist, but also an anti-liberal. He was an anti-Semite but also an anti-Christian. He despised the Left and the Right. He rejected all dogmas and all beliefs, and worse, he submitted all academic standards and value systems to brutal derision. Read more …
