Getting Funny Right

402 words

For a long time, Left-leaning satirists and comedians  have owned funny. Credit it to nepotism or closed doors, but the best humor you could hope for Right-of-center was the occasional libertarian toker or cartoonish redneck self-parody. Blogger Jonathan Chait congratulated the Left for their mastery of satire in a post for The New Republic only a few months ago. Read more …

Ezra Pound & the Angel

Miguel Serrano with a picture of Ezra Pound

1,136 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

From the end of the 1930s to the mid-1940s and beyond, I was greatly interested in the personality of the American poet Ezra Pound. I saw a lot of myself reflected in him. Indeed, during the Second World War he was opposed to the government of his country and embraced the cause of Italy and Germany. Read more …

The Corner at the Center of the World:
Traditional Metaphysics in a Late Tale of Henry James

J. P. Morgan

4,116 words

“The human individual is, at one and the same time, much more and much less than is ordinarily supposed in the West; he is greater by reason of his possibilities of indefinite extension beyond the corporeal modality, . . . but he is also much less since, far from constituting a complete and sufficient being in himself, he is only an exterior manifestation, a fleeting appearance clothing the true being, which in no way affects the essence of the latter in its immutability.” Read more …

Remembering Ezra Pound:
October 30, 1885 to November 1, 1972

623 words

“A slave is one who waits for someone else to free him.” — Ezra Pound

One of the ongoing projects of the North American New Right is the recovery of our tradition. One does not have to go too far back before one discovers that every great European thinker and artist is a “Right Wing extremist” by today’s standards. Read more …

We’re a Culture, Not a Costume Too

847 words

A student group at the University of Ohio has received praise from the mainstream media for its “We’re a culture, not a costume” campaign.  The group is called Students Teaching About Racism in Society.  As with all multicultural groups, it is fundamentally a product of the administration, beginning in 1988 as a class.  Ohio University also features a multicultural center with no fewer than 31 separate student organizations (including STARS) featured on the site.   Read more …

“Was Lassie Jewish?”

Lassie

1,182 words

Recently Counter-Currents contributor Jef Costello published a light-hearted piece entitled “Aryan Cows?,” in which he discussed contemporary hysteria over “Aryan” and “Nazi” cattle.

What Did Ezra Pound Really Say?

2,465 words

From 1945 through 1958 America’s iconoclastic poet — the flamboyant Ezra Pound, one of the most influential individuals of his generation — was held in a Washington, D.C. mental institution, accused of treason. Pound had merely done what he had always done — spoken his mind. Unfortunately for Pound, however, he had made the error of criticizing the American government in a series of broadcasts from Italy during World War II. Read more …

What is Money For?

4,741 words

We will never see an end of ructions, we will never have a sane and steady administration until we gain an absolutely clear conception of money. I mean an absolutely not an approximately clear conception.

I can, if you like, go back to paper money issued in China in or about A.D. 840, but we are concerned with the vagaries of the Western World. Read more …

Materialism

1,064 words

Ezra Pound’s Radio Broadcast #102, June 26, 1943

An idea is colored by what it is dipped in. Take for example the more or less Teutonic idea of materialism. Marx and Engels get to foolin’ ’round with Hegel’s philosophy, or something, and evolve or devolve what is called Marxian materialism, and it gets toted off into Russia. Read more …

Brooks Adams’ The Law of Civilization & Decay

1,132 words

Brooks Adams’ work on The Law of Civilization and Decay[1] is a reprint of the original American edition published in 1896. It was the first of a series of similar treatises and started the line followed, among others, by Spengler. Briefly its thesis is this — “As the attack in war masters the defence, and the combative instinct becomes unnecessary to the preservation of life, the economic supersedes the martial mind, being superior in bread-winning.

Leader-ful Resistance:
The Predicament of the Right Today

1,978 words

The concept of “leaderless resistance” was popularized on the Right through the writings of Klansman Louis Beam in the 1980s and 1990s, after having allegedly been invented by American intelligence officers in the 1960s as a possible strategy for resisting a theoretical Communist takeover of the United States.

It is really just an adaptation of the cell structure, Read more …

Japan, Refutation of Neoliberalism

8,060 words

On Usury

5,284 words

Usury does not mean high interest. It means any interest, however low, demanded for an unproductive loan. It is not only immoral but it is ultimately destructive of society. It has only been the rule of our commerce to take usury since the breakup of Europe following on the Reformation. Usury will destroy our society, but meanwhile there is no escape from it.

How About Fascist Medicine?

1,369 words

Slovak translation here

Most productive Americans hate the idea of socialized medicine since they think that they will pay more into it than they will get out of it, and they are right. Americans who take care of their health—i.e., exercise and avoid smoking, junk food, excessive drink, and recreational drugs—should also hate the idea of socialized medicine, since they will be paying for the cancer treatments of chain-smokers, the triple bypasses of lard-asses, Read more …

All Africans?

Milford H. Wolpoff, Professor of Anthropology and Adjunct Associate Research Scientist, Museum of Anthropology at the University of Michigan

2,016 words

French translation here

In 2008, 60 Minutes ran a story on Spenser Wells, Explorer in Residence for the National Geographic Society, who is mapping the genetic linkages of the world population. The media are naturally eager to plug Wells’ genetic mapping because it supports the “Out of Africa” or “African Eve” hypothesis put forward in recent times by some geneticists. The Liberal Establishment is eager to proclaim that we are all part of a nebulous mass of humanity without any differences other than what can be learned. The interviewer, a blond woman, was pleased to state that she was “once an African” (sic). Read more …

En 2008, 60 Minutes passa une histoire sur Spenser Wells, Explorateur Permanent pour la National Geographic Society, qui est en train d’établir la carte des liens génétiques de la population mondiale. Les médias sont naturellement pressés de creuser la carte génétique de Wells parce qu’elle appuie l’hypothèse « Out of Africa » ou « Eve africaine » avancée il y a quelque temps par certains généticiens. L’Establishment libéral est pressé de proclamer que nous faisons tous partie d’une masse nébuleuse d’humanité sans aucune différence à part celles qui peuvent être acquises. L’intervieweuse, une femme blonde, était fière de déclarer qu’elle était « jadis une Africaine » (sic). Read more …
