“We would like women to remain women in their nature, in the whole of their lives, in the aim and fulfilment of these lives, just as we likewise wish men to remain men in their nature and in the aim and fulfilment of their nature and their aims.”—Adolf Hitler
While Terry wrote numerous poems, and a play, The Making of a Madman, his only published work, in both prose and verse, was The Shadow. Because the shooting of Joe Kum Yung has overshadowed all else about Terry, his cogent analysis of imperialism and capitalism expressed in The Shadow is little known.
To a certain degree a book, a poem, or a movie can mean what we want them to mean. That is, in addition to the objective thing, there is our subjective reception of it. If a poem, particularly, means something to me, then I am satisfied with that meaning even if the poet had no intention of conveying such a meaning, or would be appalled that anyone would interpret it that way.
The film Avatar is a huge commercial and cultural success. In White Nationalist circles, however, the blockbuster often is labeled as anti-white. (See here, here, and here for examples.) This interpretation of the film illustrates four problems currently manifest in the White Nationalist movement: Read more …
“We can’t go back. We can’t go back to the savages: not a stride. We can be in sympathy with them. We can take a great curve in their direction, onwards. But we cannot turn the current of our life backwards, back towards their soft warm twilight and uncreate mud. Not for a moment. If we do it for a moment, it makes us sick.
I write because the future is not what it used to be.
I know, because I have lived in it. My parents had overseas jobs during the 1970s and early 80s, and, consequently, I spent part of my childhood and early teenage years in Latin America. Venezuelan schools — at least at the time — taught their students that the country’s population was racially diverse, going from White to Black, with eight shades in between. Read more …
I like to look beyond—or, if you will, behind—the “surface” of entertainment by trying to learn a little about the people and institutions responsible for creating it. Doing so enhances my viewing experience.
Dies ist die Frage: „Leben wir im Jahr 370 n. Chr., 40 Jahre bevor Alarich Rom plünderte?“ oder „Leben wir im Jahr 270 n. Chr., kurz vor den drastischen Korrekturmaßnahmen der illyrischen Kaiser, die die Katastrophe abwendeten, um das Leben des Imperiums um weitere zwei Jahrhunderte zu verlängern?“

In 2005, Alain de Benoist gave an interview to The Occidental Quarterly, which was published as “European Son: An Interview with Alain de Benoist,” The Occidental Quarterly, vol. 5, no. 3 (Fall 2005): 7–21.
Entrepreneurialism, Economic Sanctions, and Tribalism
Prior to attacking Serbia and Iraq militarily, the US used so-called “economic sanctions” against these countries. One hears the term, “economic sanctions,” and thinks that it only applies to whole countries. Think again.
I am starting work on the third monthly Counter-Currents/North American New Right Newsletter, which contains information on our web traffic, sales, upcoming books, and our special Black History Month observations.
What should White Nationalists expect from our leaders on the question of violence? I am writing this not as a leader, or a would-be leader, but as someone who would like to see some honest and credible leadership in the White Nationalist movement.
(1) The Illegitimate Question of Violence
In my previous article on this topic, I argued that real leadership on this issue requires intellectual honesty, political realism, and the adoption of a no kooks policy.
Lesbian heiress, socialite, and Hollywood celeb Casey Johnson, 30, was found dead in the bedroom of her West Hollywood home on January 4, 2010. Jewish gossip website TMZ reported that Johnson, last heard from on December 29, 2009, had been dead for several days before her body was discovered by a maid. A coroner’s toxicology report has yet to be issued, but foul play is not suspected. Johnson suffered from diabetes and had a history of drug abuse.
It has been opined in past issues of this magazine that man’s most dangerous myth is that of equality: the myth which, in its starkest form, says that every featherless biped, regardless of race, gender, or lineage, has essentially the same physical-psychical constitution and the same set of capabilities as every other, and that differences in performance are attributable solely to unequal environmental influences and unequal opportunities.
Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” in the 1960s set up millions of Blacks and Hispanics in cities on generous housing and welfare benefits. Before the Great Society, nobody assumed they could live on permanent government benefits, except maybe disabled veterans.
In 1814, at the end of the Napoleonic wars, Benjamin Constant wrote with relief: “We have arrived at the age of commerce, the age that must necessarily replace that of war, as the age of war necessarily had to precede it.” Naïve Benjamin! He took up the very widespread idea of indefinite progress supporting the advent of peace between men and nations.
The following interview appeared on TOQ Online on December 2, 2009. I am reposting it here because I conducted and edited it, and I wish to consolidate all of my work on this site. I have not changed my mind about the utility of running for office, but if anybody could change my mind on the subject, it would be David Duke.
That unusual periodical, Vanity Fair, sports a new social chronicler of our illusive “WASP Establishment.” He is young (born 1979) Jamie Johnson, heir to the Johnson & Johnson health care fortune and producer and director of two documentaries, Born Rich (HBO, 2003) and The One Percent (2006), both touted by Oprah Winfrey on her TV show.
And thus, as a closer and still closer intimacy admitted me more unreservedly into the recesses of his spirit, the more bitterly did I perceive the futility of all attempt at cheering a mind from which darkness, as if an inherent positive quality, poured forth upon all objects of the moral and physical universe, in one unceasing radiation of gloom. — E. A. Poe, “The Fall of the House of Usher”
The recent attempt to smear American Renaissance by “linking” it to Arizona spree-killer Jared Lee Loughner was rapidly refuted. On closer examination, the sources were bogus, the liars who concocted the claim scuttled for the wainscoting, and Loughner turned out to be a left-wing nutcase.

“You’re just afraid of strong women!” I can’t count the number of times I have heard this accusation hurled at men who break up with their girlfriends after tiring of their feminist posturing and antics.
I confess: I am afraid of “strong women.” There are good reasons to dislike and even to fear them.
Similar things happen in the United States too: an alienated, bookish radical right-winger takes up weight-lifting and martial arts, creates a private militia, dreams of overthrowing the government, then dies in a spectacular, suicidal, and apparently pointless confrontation with the state. In the United States, however, such people are easily dismissed as “kooks” and “losers.” Read more …
