Ernst Jünger
The Forest Passage
Translated by Thomas Friese
New York: Telos Press, 2013

We all live in deserts.

Urban deserts. Suburban deserts. Even in rural areas it is difficult to escape the commercially refined silicates of mechanized and meaningless modernity that blow over and bury the fossilized remains of dead gods and old ways. Read more …

“Columbusing” & “Cargo Culting”:
Inconvenient Truths About Cultural Appropriation

1,872 words

Salvador Dalí, The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, 1959

Salvador Dalí, The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, 1959

My parents, like most white mainstreamers, are unwittingly, casually anti-white. They don’t even think about it. Their anti-whiteism is a worldview that they have adopted by osmosis from their “progressive” environment. Like many in their generation of war babies and boomers, they’ve spent their whole lives lazily parroting the talking points of their radical professors and of Hollywood. Having been thus long immersed in the moral rhetoric of ’60s kosher leftism and the gospel of “civil rights,” they tend to think it the height of sophistication and righteousness to point out, whenever possible, ways in which white people are wicked and wormy, and how non-whites are admirable, brilliant, noble, innocent, and good.  Read more …

Evolův antisemitismus

Julius_Evola11,837 words

English original here

V době, kdy jeden z předních kritiků židoliberální civilizace Julius Evola formoval svou rasovou teorii – tedy ve 30. letech 20. století – byly nejrozšířenější inspirací pro antisemitské myšlenkové proudy Protokoly sionských mudrců.

Protokoly byly –  údajně z tajné lóže odcizeným –  záznamem 24 tajných setkání vůdců mezinárodního Židovstva, na nichž se pokoušeli vypracovat plán na ovládnutí světa. Read more …

On March 11, 2014 the Student Union of the University College of London University banned a student organization, the Nietzsche Club, formerly Tradition UCL, for “endangering the student body” by promoting “racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Marxist, and anti-worker” ideas. Obviously, the Student Union is controlled by Marxists who wish to suppress contrary ideas.  Read more …

German Cinema Classics 
Heimat (1938)

Heimat poster9,830 words

Heimat is one of the finest productions of Third Reich cinema, and by any standard it is an excellent film. The title means “homeland,” and in the minds of many the word Heimat is closely associated with National Socialist ideology. Indeed, a close study of this film can give us priceless insights into the true nature of that ideology. But the results may surprise you.

The following text is based on a transcript by V. S. of Part 2 of my lecture on “The Myths of Plato.” As usual, I have edited his transcript to remove excessive wordiness and corrected small mistakes.

Contre l’Homme Faustien

3,997 words

English original here

fri_wand« L’histoire même de l’humanité tout entière est tragique. Mais le sacrilège du Faustien et son désastre surpassent tous les autres, allant au-delà de tout ce qu’Eschyle ou Shakespeare ont jamais imaginé. La créature se dresse contre son créateur. De la même façon que le microcosme Homme se révolta un jour contre la Nature, ainsi fait aujourd’hui le microcosme Machine se révoltant contre l’Homme Nordique. Le maître du Monde est en train de devenir l’esclave de la Machine qui le force – et nous force tous, que nous en soyons conscients ou pas – à en passer par où elle veut. Abattu, le triomphateur est traîné à mort par le char. » (Oswald Spengler, L’Homme et la TechniqueRead more …

Los portadores de la antorcha (The Torch Bearers) (cast aluminum, University of Madrid, 1955)

2,069 words

Despite the triumph of modernism, a handful of American sculptors, including Anna Hyatt Huntington, creator of The Torch Bearers (1955), continued to work in the neoclassical mode prior to and after WWII. Huntington was highly regarded for her large-scale public commissions at a time when the preferred product of most women sculptors was the small bronze statuette. In the words of one art journalist, she “made a name for herself depicting fierce creatures, strong leaders, and legendary heroines.”

Nymphomaniac

Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac: Vol. I and II (2013) is the type of pretentious art-house exhibitionism that begs for conservative condemnation and liberal defense against the prudish “man” — at least upon first inspection. The fundamentalist Islamic Turkish government has recently taken the bait by reacting predictably and banning the film, labeling it, what it is only explicitly and superficially, as “pornography.”[1] Read more …

The Sexual Counter-Revolution

1,770 words

lorenzo-lippi-allegoria-della-simulazioneGame is the male revolt against the sexual caste system imposed by feminism. The “red pill” is simply an acknowledgement that what women say they want, and what they actually want, are two different things. Even some women who say that they want a “traditional” relationship are not willing to do what it takes to get this by actually behaving like a lady, staying in shape, or not detonating a relationship over trivia. By definition, game is men learning what actually works with women and using it to fulfill their primal needs for sex, Read more …

Sexual Serfdom

fatpositive2,797 words

Equality and Hierarchy

Every egalitarian movement ends with the establishment of a new hierarchy. As it solidifies, caste and status crystallize on the social ladder until class structure is as rigid as in feudal Japan. Eventually, those of talent, originality, and ambition conclude they have nothing to gain from the system’s preservation. This is how we get revolution.

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

1. Our Readership and Web Traffic

Our traffic remains essentially plateaued since February, when a dramatic drop in our search engine traffic took place. Before that time, it was routine that articles published years ago would enjoy 1,000 or more reads per month. Many of them were regular fixtures in our top 20. Now, these articles receive under 100 visits per month, and all of our top 20 are recently published.
