The Counter-Currents 2013 Fall Fundraiser 
Nothing is Beyond Our Grasp

octopus939 words

Dear Friend of Counter-Currents:

Since our last update, we received seventeen new donations totaling $585, for which we wish to thank each and every donor. That means that our total is $39,154.29, which means that we are now $10,845.71 away from our annual goal of $50,000

Three of these new donations were just the first of monthly pledges, which are especially helpful.

Probably due to my shout-out to our friends in Scandinavia, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, a good number of these donations came from there.

When the National Reconaissance Office, one of the many known and unknown US government agencies tasked with spying on the world, launched a new spy satellite last week, the logo came as some surprise: an evil-looking octopus encompassing the globe in its tentacles with the slogan “Nothing is Beyond Our Reach.”

The surprise, of course, is not the globe-spanning ambitions of America’s snoops, but the fact that they are so honest about it. Maybe the designer is a fellow Cthulhu for President booster (“Why Vote for the Lesser Evil?”) who was just having fun. Maybe he was sternly reprimanded for stirring up the goyim. Or maybe our leaders are so confident that they feel they can drop the mask. Maybe the point was to intimidate people into compliance with the system. If so, it succeeded wildly, judging from the paranoia stirred up in the Right-wing blog and talk radio spheres.

But I don’t find such news troubling. I assumed the absolute worst about America a long time ago. I take reasonable precautions to secure data. I follow the law. I don’t associate with kooks. But ultimately I act under the assumption that everything I do can be made public. I can protect myself against non-government hackers and snoops, but not against the state itself. And if the system wants to destroy you badly enough, being a law-abiding, strictly vanilla milquetoast will not save you anyway. They will simply manufacture evidence, or kill you without any legal pretenses at all. So how much does their data collection really matter? The only way to be a free man is to live like one, beginning today.

To me, the National Reconaissance Office slogan brought to mind Robert Browning’s words, “Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, / Or what’s a heaven for?” For although nothing really is beyond the reach of our enemies, their grasp is far weaker. I am using grasp in two senses of the word: the ability to understand and the ability to control.

It is relatively easy to program machines to collect and sort data. But ultimately the data has to be reviewed and interpreted by human beings, namely government employees: employees whose idea of quitting time is 3:00 p.m. — or who are hopelessly unqualified affirmative actions hires (like Barack Obama) — or who, like Edward Snowden, increasingly believe that the system is illegitimate and may just throw a spanner in the works.

Beyond that, the data collectors can only really look for “known unknowns”: answers to existing questions But history is full of surprises. Empires and paradigms rise and fall based on “unknown unknowns”: the things we never knew were coming, so we could not prepare for them. Heidegger argued that the modern mania for knowledge and control itself comes from sources that we do not understand and cannot control, and these inscrutable contingencies are the logic of history itself.

There is some consolation in hoping that our enemies will defeat themselves. But I actually think that we will defeat them some day, or at least lend our shoulder to the wheel of time that will grind them under.

After all, our reach is global too. And although we have absolutely no political grasp yet, our intellectual grasp is much greater than the system’s. The whole political spectrum is committed to the lies of equality and diversity. They pray to false gods and have to lie to themselves and others from morning till night. They are internally divided and tied in knots.

The whole political spectrum is also committed to materialism, modernity, and progressivism–to the illusory aim of a world completely subject to prediction and control–a world without borders and wars because there will be no differences important enough to fight over.

We New Rightists know the truth about human nature, modern society, the Jewish menace, and the farcical cults of diversity and equality. Intellectually speaking, nothing exceeds our grasp.

While the system continues to collect more information, we will continue to spread ideas and change minds. Yes, they have every resource — except the most important: truth and justice. Those are on our side, but we need your support to continue to build our network and spread our ideas. That’s why it is so important for people who read Counter-Currents to also donate.

You can make two different types of donations:

  • A single donation of any size.
  • A recurring donation of any size.

Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We have added several new levels for recurring donations. Please visit our Donations page for more information.

We can also customize the amount of a monthly donation.

There are several ways to make one-time donations:

  • The easiest is through Paypal. For a one-time donation, just use the following button:
  • You can send check, money order, or credit card payment by mail. Just print out our donation form in Word or PDF.
  • You can make a secure credit card donation direct from our Donation page.

Please give generously!

Thank you for your loyal readership and support.

    Greg, since you have moved, is your San Francisco PO box still functional?

      Yes, it is still functional and is checked regularly.

    Dear Mr. Johnson,

    I know what I’m going to write is off-topic but not that much, I think it’s still worth a mention in a public thread, so I hope you won’t just ban me or censor me.

    So, what if I’m broke but still willing to expose a hardcore level of explicitness about WN? I was wondering maybe wealthy donor could back me up by stealth while I make kamikaze attacks against PC ideology. But that presupposes a kind of racial solidarity which we whites routinely fail to display, is WN any better or just empty rambling?

    And by the way, let me dismiss out of hand the soundness of European “Nationalist” Parties which you hold so high in esteem in this milieu: in a word, they suck, they stand for integrationism, which smacks of (reverse) colonialism; and what’s more, even their purported communitarian stance stems more from the pussification of geriatric Europe which abhors the misbegotten dynamism of American-style Cannibal Capitalism, than from a principled rejection of bourgeois lifestyle.

    I know that because I’m a European myself and I can tell you that WN is the way to go, because French “Nationalists” wouldn’t feel any compunction in, say, fighting Germany with legions of “integrated” Negroes and Arabs, valiantly charging for the sake of “Mother France”. Fuck that! What we need is a centralised White ethnostate from the Pacific to the Rhine! Borders don’t matter anymore, and whatever is left of decrepit squabbles and antipathies among fellow whites will beyond any doubt be used by those who want our genocide to prevent the white reunion!

    You Americans mustn’t forget that our problem is YOUR problem, Europe has no inner strength left after 1945, you colonised us, you shall set us free, so please let me come to America so that I can join the real struggle!

    Thanks!

      Thanks for your kind words. The main problem with your proposal is the issue of trust. You are just a guy on the web. People need face-to-face relationships over a sufficient time to build trust before they can embark on such adventures.

        OK, you’re right. What do I need to do in order to win your trust? Discount or even free translations of articles or books? Here I am!

    Will their be any discount pricing for books this holiday season? Some of those prices proved irresistible last year.

    You never wrote a truer word than if the system wants to destroy you they will just manufacture the evidence before doing you in. I don’t know why we concern ourselves with anonymity, living off the grid and staying below the radar. I can’t imagine what Oscar Wilde would think about our sheepishness. He got it right when he wrote,
    There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
