Kerry Bolton’s Babel Inc.

Babel-300-500x8002,690 words

Kerry Bolton
Babel Inc.: Multiculturalism, Globalisation, and the New World Order
London: Black House Publishing, 2013

The cover design of Babel Inc. suggests conspiracy, with the “eye in pyramid” peering out at the prospective reader. However, this is no paste pudding Alex Jones’ ramble on Bohemian Grove or other such inanities, but an incisive analysis of the cultural and political agenda of the multi-national corporations who pull the strings of the United States’ geopolitical agenda.  Read more …

Against Mainstreaming

In a country where Israel is widely unpopular in the political mainstream, the Sweden Democrats cleverly co-opt themselves in search of what? Credibility?

In a country where Israel is widely unpopular in the political mainstream, the Sweden Democrats cleverly co-opt themselves in search of what? Credibility?

1,120 words

Some in the “movement” – including some “movement intellectuals” – are championing the concept of “mainstreaming” and cite France’s Front National (FN) as a sterling example of this paradigm. After all, as these “movement” think tankers report, the FN, it seems, is these days saying it doesn’t matter if the French become a minority of the population of France.

Thomas Stearns Eliot was one of the 20th century’s most influential poets, as well as an essayist, literary critic, playwright, and publisher. He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1948.

Reflections on the H. P. Lovecraft Award

awardEditor’s Note:

Because the PC Terror wishes to do away with the H. P. Lovecraft World Fantasy Award, Counter-Currents/North American New Right is inaugurating a new H. P. Lovecraft Prize for Literature. The first award will be given when we have a suitable bust and prize money, probably next August 20th, Lovecraft’s birthday. Nobody ever asked if Lovecraft would feel slighted by giving this hideous bust to no-talent PC hacks like Nnedi Okorafar. We will do the master proud.  Read more …

Totalitarianism:
A Specious Concept

539 words

vennerstudyTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

The American historian George Mosse has pin-pointed the specious nature of the theory of totalitarianism: it “looks upon the world exclusively from a liberal point of view.” In other words, totalitarianism is a concept elaborated by liberal thought in order to present itself in a favorable light, contrasting itself to its various enemies, all of which are confused together in a single, unholy category, according to the binary opposition of “us and them.”

“An Update” & “A Nightmare”

steampunk-lamps-5 (1)An Update
Inspired by W. H. Auden’s “Doggerel by a Senior Citizen”

Our lives are electronic now,
Obsequiously we scrape and bow
To every gimmick passing by
And never stop to question why.

What craze is this to get a nook
That does not look like any book?
Nor does it angle as it might
Atop the stair, beneath a light.  Read more …

Y’all Can Kill That Mockingbird Now

To_Kill_a_Mockingbird2,446 words

One of these days Harper Lee is going to kick off and have great big posthumous laugh at our expense. Bwah-hah-hah! Because right there in her Last Notes and Testament, we will find an answer to that puzzlement that has troubled the publishing biz for a half-century or more.

Namely, why didn’t Harper Lee write any more novels after To Kill a Mockingbird?

Francis Parker Yockey was born on this day in 1917 in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.

Three New Poems

Cobbling Poems

On Fridays I line up before the thrift shop
Much like the squirrel, I’m building up a store.
Some wild exotics that would make your eyes pop
Grab baskets, and we rush the open door.

I search for some commodities and trinkets
To decorate the structure of my life,
Give it more meaning, make it work. I think it’s
Like painting landscape with a palette knife —

Dugin on Ethnicity vs. Race, Part 2

George Heermann, Cronos, 1696

George Heermann, Cronos, 1696

3,439 words

Part 2 of 2

Spanish translation here

The ethnos continues to exist as the substratum of traditional societies. For example, the pre-Indo-European ethne continue to exist as the third function of Indo-European societies. Dugin explains the emergence of traditional civilizations through the emergence of nomadic pastoralism, that is, the appearance, from out of autochthonous agricultural society, of small, nomadic groups of war-like herdsmen.

The Question of Female Masochism

50ShadesofGreyCoverArt2,570 words

“If He Doesn’t Hit You, He Doesn’t Love You.” So runs an African proverb. Or a Russian proverb, according to other sources. Or a Bolivian proverb, according to still others. Perhaps it is all three. A similar Latin American saying, “The more you hit me, the more I love you,” turns up over 100,000 hits on Google.

It is hardly a new idea that female sexuality has a masochistic component. Read more …

Francis Fukuyuma, the Japanese-American intellectual spokesman for the Jewish American Neoconservative movement, proclaimed in his 1992 book The End of History and the Last Man that liberal democracy was the final socio-political form since earlier alternatives such as Fascism and Communism had proven to be ideological failures, and liberty and equality had now been established as universal norms.  Read more …

Abir Taha
Nietzsche’s Coming God or the Redemption of the Divine
London: Arktos, 2013

Abir Taha, a Lebanese woman described as a “career diplomat,” and who has a philosophy degree from the Sorbonne, has written an interesting book, Nietzsche’s Coming God or the Redemption of the Divine. As the author of the polemic essay on “The Overman High Culture,” I thought a careful reading of Taha’s book would be useful. Read more …
