John Spencer

Nota del autor:

Debido a las positivas respuestas recibidas tanto offline como online – a la primera parte de las notas, decidí continuar las series hasta completarla. Luego discutiré los siguientes libros de Assmann: The Price of Monotheism, Of God and Gods: Egypt, Israel, and the Rise of Monotheism, Religio Duplex: How the Enlightenment Reinvented Egyptian Religion, y el próximo a salir From Akhenaten to Moses: Ancient Egypt and Religious Change. He decidido llamar a este proyecto el Seminario Assmann, aunque puede que en el futuro haga algo parecido con otros autores. Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2014 Summer Fundraiser 
Matching Grant Offer & Budapest Congress

424 words

Budapest1

The Danube and Hungarian Parliament Building, Budapest

Since last week’s update on our Summer Fundraiser, we have received donations totaling $2,171.23 in amounts ranging from $1 to $1,000. Our total is now $22,016.06. We are $17,983.94 from our goal of $40,000 with just over 2 months to go.

The final stretch is going to be a lot easier, however, because a Swedish benefactor has offered us a matching grant of $5,000. Read more …

Revisiting Tom Wolfe’s Radical Chic (1970)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA3,617 words

I stopped reading contemporary literature—works by living novelists and short story writers—when I was in my late teens or early twenties. I found it aesthetically and intellectually unrewarding. The sole exception was the work of journalist-turned-novelist Tom Wolfe, the Virginia-born, New York City-based founder and exponent of New Journalism, a type of feature reporting employing literary techniques.  Read more …

Persona Non Grata

I remember you.

We used to hang out together, back at university. So many years ago. You in your mossy dreadlocks (symbolic of progressivism and love), the stone-washed jeans, the Boho sandals, and the anti-Reagan “End of an Error” T-shirt. And me? Well, just me. I never stood out like you.  Read more …

Second Thoughts on Foley

James Foley, Aleppo, July, 2012, with his weapon of choice

773 words

Slovak translation here

My initial reaction to the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic militants was horror and outrage. But then I learned more about Foley’s work, and my feelings changed. As Gregory Hood writes:

[Foley] had a specific agenda with his work–he was trying to expose the “atrocities” of the Assad regime and support the “democracy” movement. Read more …

Schmitt, Soberania e o Estado Profundo

schmitt2,274 palavras

English original here

Em Teologia Política, seu pequeno livro sobre o conceito de soberania, Carl Schmitt afirma que “Soberano é aquele que decide sobre o Estado de Exceção” [1]. Soberania significa autoridade política suprema, por oposição à sujeição política. Em uma sociedade, o soberano é o governante, por oposição ao governado. Uma nação soberana se governa, por oposição a ser governada por outros.

On the Sublime & the Numinous

Caspar_David_Friedrich_0714,193 words

The words “sublime” and “numinous” have shifted in meaning somewhat over recent years. The word “sublime,” I presume, would now generally be interpreted to mean something of particularly great beauty, or an action particularly well executed. It would not be limited to a narrow usage but could be applied to any thing or action of particular excellence, perhaps with a slightly pretentious connotation of elegance.  Read more …

BUK Near Donetsk

Buk-m2_ky54 words

Beside the fields of rye and flax
there is a road that leads to birches,
pocked with dark puddles and tank tracks,
above which no white dove perches.

Green men pray to another Christ,
a Fulcrum falling overhead,
a saviour or a poltergeist,
the sun behind it, fierce and red.

“Briton” executes American in Caliphate

830 words

For the first time since 1815, Britain and the US are effectively at war, although rather than the bayous of Louisiana or the forests of the Canadian borders, the battleground is the deserts of the Middle East, where a “Brit” with a London accent — dubbed by the ever inventive and alliterative UK press “Jihad John” — took fanatical pleasure is hacking off the head of an American journalist after US forces bombed Islamic State forces advancing on Kurdish positions.  Read more …

“Whites are to blame.” Say it with a straight face.

“Whites are to blame.” Say it with a straight face.

Ordinary whites have some sacred cows, among them Jews, schools, the military, and cops. These individuals and institutions can do no wrong. White support for them is blind and unreasoning—at least until some unlucky soul is singled out as “racist,” “anti-Semitic,” or, possibly, “homophobic.” The true beliefs of the victim are then irrelevant. He becomes a totem, a hate object. Read more …

Gavin McInnes: mug shot of a thought criminal

1,200 words

I never had a chance to read Gavin McInnes’ article “Transphobia is Perfectly Natural,” since Thought Catalog has taken it down. (But we can read outraged reactions from around the web.) McInnes has apparently been hounded out of his job as chief creative officer of something called Rooster, which I am too unhip to have heard of.

Implementing a Eugenics Program

Charles West Cope, A Life Well Spent

675 words

Even though I believe in eugenics, I really have no idea how it should be implemented. It seems so complicated, and it could be abused. What would a model eugenics program even look like?

When we envision launching a new eugenics program in the West, we need to consider what is effective, what is morally right, and what will be accepted by the public. We can make great strides towards helping future generations with no Draconian measures whatsoever, just a combination of incentives and disincentives. Read more …

Although Stewart Home is the principal subject, Bowden romps through a wide field of politically correct theories, ultra-Left sects, and decadent forms of modern art.

Ethnic Cleansing in Ancient Attica & Lemnos

Herodotus

2,257 words

In The Histories, the Greek historian Herodotus relates an account of a conflict between (Greek) Athenians and a group identified as “Pelasgians.” The story encodes ideas of racial/cultural difference, expulsion, miscegenation, mass murder, and, especially, racial (genetic) dominance that are still relevant today.

The story is related in Book Six, §§6.137–6.140. At some unknown date prior to Herodotus’ time, but still remembered, the Athenians expelled the Pelasgians from Attica, Read more …
