A Note from the Editor 
They Like Me! They Really Like Me!

492 words

In March, we added three new features to every Counter-Currents/North American New Right article: (1) a “Tip Jar” donation button, (2) a “Like” counter, and (3) a Facebook “Recommendation” button. (We also added a “Twitter” button, but I am gratified to see that my disdain for Twitter is shared by our readers who have not, to my knowledge, ever “tweeted” about the goings on here.) Read more …

Quelques réflexions sur Hitler

1,800 words English original here « Hitler » en tant qu’arme de propagande pour le multiracialisme L’argument avancé par certains nationalistes racialistes, selon lequel toute défense d’Adolf Hitler, au vu de l’hostilité et même de la révulsion que son nom provoque à présent, risque de nous aliéner la sympathie de la grande majorité des Blancs, est plausible à première vue et doit être reçu avec une oreille attentive. Mais la question n’est pas encore tranchée. Read more …

Scientific American rodun todellisuudesta

1,543 words

English original here

Rodun tieteellinen tutkimus on tienhaarassa. Ihmisen genomin kartoituksen myötä tiedemiehet tietävät enemmän rodusta ja rodullisista eroista kuin koskaan ennen. Mutta yhteiskunnan investoidessa enemmän ja enemmän rodullisen tasavertaisuuden valheeseen, tiedemiehille käy vaikeammaksi ja vaikeammaksi puhua näitä totuuksia. Read more …

Home Economics, Part 2

Jan Van Eyck, "The Arnolfini Marriage," 1434

3,181 words

3. Modern Neglect of the Economic Side of Marriage

Having examined briefly — in the first section — the two principal ways in which feminism has undermined the former position of esteem enjoyed by women in our civilization, let us proceed to consider how that position used to be maintained.

The bedrock of the system, more fundamental than the ideal of chivalry, was the institution of marriage. Read more …

Memorial Day Meditation on Manhood 
Humphrey Bogart:
Man Among the Cockroaches

3,096 words

“Bogart was a medium-sized man,” said John Huston. “Not particularly impressive off screen.” Put him on camera, however, and “those lights and shadows organized themselves into another nobler personality, heroic.”

Recently Andrew Hamilton wrote about “The Courage of Jodi Foster” on Greg Johnson’s Counter-currents blog, the courage in question being her outspoken standing by, if not exactly ‘supporting’, the always controversial Mel Gibson. Read more …

Home Economics, Part 1

Part 1 of 5

1. Two conflicting conceptions of feminine dignity

One of the hallmarks of Western civilization is the unusually high status it has accorded women. That has often been attributed to the influence of Christianity, which prizes certain typically feminine virtues (mercy, humility) more than pagan society had. Read more …

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French writer and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature.

Savigny: The Volksgeist & Law

3,779 words

“Before they addressed themselves to the impractical task of changing men by changing laws, the justices might have pondered the words of Savigny, who wrote, ‘Law is no more made by lawyers than language by grammarians. Law is the natural moral product of a people . . . the persistent customs of a nation, springing organically from its past and present. Even statute law lives in the general consensus of the people.'” –Wilmot Robertson, The Dispossessed Majority (1981) Read more …

The Woman Question in White Nationalism

2,127 words

Translations: French, PolishSlovak

The perennial question is back: Why are there so few women in the White Nationalist movement?

Before venturing an analysis of this question, I need to say a few words about what White Nationalism is. White Nationalism is about preserving the biological integrity of the white race by making our race’s survival and flourishing the number one political priority. Read more …

The Roots of Civilization

2,100 words

Turn on a local television news program in just about any large city in this country, and the chances are nearly 100% that you’ll hear and see at least one Black announcer telling you what’s happening. He’ll be dressed and groomed just like the White announcers, and, in most cases, his enunciation will be so similar that you can close your eyes for a moment and almost convince yourself that you are listening to a White person.

Ein Schlüsselmerkmal des zeitgenössischen Philosemitismus ist seine seltsame und zutiefst schädliche religiöse Dimension, die durch und durch rassistisch ist.

What is Racism?

2,945 words

Today let’s talk about racism and related matters. There’s hardly a subject the average White person is more uptight about, hardly a subject that makes him more uncomfortable. Fifty or 60 years ago people were really uptight about sex. Very few people could talk about it honestly and openly and comfortably. It embarrassed them. Read more …

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on this day in 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website.
