Why Christianity Can’t Save Us

Odin22,349 words

French translation here

The conservative philosopher Russell Kirk wrote:

We must remind ourselves, to begin, that culture arises from the cult: out of the religious bond and the sense of the sacred grow any civilization’s agriculture, its common defense, its orderly towns, Read more …

Where do you come from white boy, what is your land
Everybody else knows where they come from
You don’t know your place, you never did, you never can
You can’t find a place in this land

Learning from Success

solidarismus2,022 words

Spanish translation here

In the third part of my essay I have given myself the more cheering task of putting down some notes as to what I want to see, which very statement can be a start of what needs to be done, to be aware less of what one is against, than what one is for, less concerned with what happened in the past and more concerned with what should change, and how one may bring desirable change about. We do not have to start from scratch. There are instances in different places not only of those getting it wrong but also of those getting it right. Read more …

The Journey to Tilsit:
A Song of Two Movies

Sunrise-Poster17,194 words

Many people consider F. W. Murnau’s Sunrise: Song of Two Humans (1927) to be the greatest film of the silent era. But most are unaware that it was remade under Hitler as Die Reise nach Tilsit (1939), and directed by the notorious Veit Harlan.

Both films were based upon a novella – titled Die Reise nach Tilsit (The Journey to Tilsit) – by Hermann Sudermann. Read more …

The Nigger Word

noevil1,076 words

At Counter-Currents/North American New Right, our aim is to raise the social status, intellectual rigor, and stylistic tone of racialist discourse. Thus we do not use the nigger word and other crude racial slurs.

However, although the distinction between “using” a word and merely “mentioning” it is lost on the low-IQ and the high-PC alike, Read more …

Herbert James Draper, “Figure with a Laurel Wreath”

646 words

Your personal shortcomings and natural talents are not moral triumphs.

When I read about someone preaching sexual abstinence, I want to see what that person looks like. I don’t want to be lectured about the virtues of chastity by someone who would obviously have trouble getting laid. I’m not impressed with the self-discipline or moral fortitude of an obese neckbeard or pimply teenager, Read more …

The Psychology of Apostasy

Il Sodoma, "The Martyrom of Saint Sebastian," c. 1525

Il Sodoma, “The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian,” c. 1525

2,671 words

Translations: French, Polish

Derek Black’s renunciation of White Nationalism raises questions of wider significance about how people form and reject beliefs. There are two basic kinds of beliefs: those you think are true based on reality and reason vs. those you think are true based on other people’s opinions.

If you base your beliefs on reality and reason, then you will change them as new facts come to light or as better arguments are presented. For example, I used to be a classical liberal, but classical liberalism grants no importance to racial and cultural differences, Read more …

Detroit’s Downfall . . . & Japan’s

Jap930 words

The most depressing thing about Detroit’s bankruptcy isn’t the hours victims wait for police responses, sprawling neighborhoods reverting back to nature, historic buildings crumbling to ruin, or the once-vanquished problems of illiteracy and sex slavery climbing out of their graves. It’s certainly not the financial quandary the city’s in, or the uncertain fate of its pensioners and employees. The most hopeless thing about Detroit is the false hope which hangs on despite reason and sanity. Read more …

[A]lthough nothing even hints at the existence of a code of ethics attached to the Religion of the Disk, in the amount of evidence yet unearthed, there are, in his Longer Hymn to the Sun, three remarkable lines which express, more eloquently perhaps than any others, the young king’s idea of man—three lines which have not attracted, as far as I know, the special attention of any archaeologists: Read more …

Mircea Eliade, Carl Schmitt, & René Guénon

portugaljournal1,399 words

Mircea Eliade’s The Portugal Journal, trans. Mac Linscott Ricketts (Albany, N.Y.: SUNY Press, 2010) covers the years 1941 to 1945 when Eliade was a Romanian diplomat in Portugal. It is thus a prequel to Eliade’s four-volume Journal (Vol. 1: 1945–1955, Vol. 2: 1957–1969, Vol. 3: 1970–1978, and Vol. 4: 1979–1985), which begins with his arrival in Paris in September of 1945 and continues for the rest of his life.
