The Counter-Currents 2015 Summer Fundraiser 
An Appeal from Our Writers

1,075 words

TigerPumpkinSince our last update, we have received 16 donations totaling $2,927.88, in amounts ranging from $15 to $1,000. This amount has been matched, for a total of $5,855.76. Our total is now $31,650.64. We are thus $8,349.36 from last year’s goal of $40,000. I want to thank all our donors, new and old, for making Counter-Currents possible. $2,072.12 now remains of the current matching grant. Donate today, and make it go twice as far by picking the pocket of a willing benefactor.

During past years, a number of Counter-Currents writers have written about why they support Counter-Currents, and why you should too: 

Leo Yankevich:

What was there before Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents? Go back 4 years and recall. It costs to run a website of such high-quality. It also costs to put out books of such fine printing, paper and quality.

Dr. Johnson is not a hobbyist who runs a website on the side. He is a professional who dedicates his time and energy to editing Counter-Currents, translating rightist tracts, and to publishing books that edify and fortify the initiated and uninitiated alike. This requires the support of all of us, whether we can donate only a single dollar, or a million.

The struggle continues. The numbers do not lie, neither demographically, nor financially.

Support Counter-Currents!

Tito Perdue:

As if we weren’t already in the most serious civilizational crisis in the whole history of The West, consider how much more serious would be our plight in the absence of Counter-Currents and the sort of unafraid people like Greg Johnson. Fast forward a couple of generations and your grandchildren’s textbooks (assuming our demographic actually survives), will cite this publisher as one of those who were willing to stand against the diseases of our dwindling age

John Morgan:

Since its inception, Counter-Currents has offered a unique forum to the English-speaking world where political and cultural non-conformists of many different persuasions can meet and exchange ideas. I can think of no other site where the New Right, the Old Right, traditionalism, literature, pop culture, Eurasianism, postmodernism, and even anti-natalism all rub elbows. And yet, for all this diversity, Counter-Currents is always focused upon a single aim: the regeneration and restoration of our civilization, toward which all of these approaches ultimately strive, albeit in radically different ways. At the same time, the breadth of its scope and the brilliance and wit of its authors makes it a visceral pleasure to read on a daily basis. Such originality is irreplaceable. If the forces that oppose liberalism in all its forms are ever to emerge from the morass they have been stuck in for decades, new styles and new ways of thinking must be developed to convey the eternal truths. It is from the colorful stir-fry of something like Counter-Currents that the intellectual and ideological weapons that will challenge the prevailing paradigm will emerge. As such, it should be supported by anyone who favors original and dangerous thinking.

Andy Nowicki:

There are many excellent reasons to help support Counter-Currents financially, but I would like to relate what I find to be the most salient and compelling one. Simply put, out of the vast myriad of contemporary media organs, outlets, and institutions, Counter-Currents is only one of a handful that manfully resist the oppressive, relentless homogenization of ideas, ethics, and aesthetics taking place in our sadly decaying, gangrenously blighted, cancerously degenerate culture today.

Week after week, Greg Johnson’s online journal provides thoughtful, provocative, intellectually fearless articles from writers who are engaged, informed, and unabashedly nonconformist in orientation. A reader needn’t agree with everything, and may strongly disagree with a great deal, while still at the same time appreciating the fierce counter-blast that Counter-Currents defiantly delivers to the ever-sneering and insufferably censorious face of a know-nothing contemporary Zeitgeist as arrogant as it is decadent.

Johnson’s print company, meanwhile, has published an impressive catalogue of books: both fiction and non-fiction, which, while dizzying in their diversity of topics (and I use this often irritating buzzword in its ironically best possible sense), nevertheless uphold standards of literary excellence even as they challenge contemporary norms on matters of genuine significance.

I am proud to have two books published by Counter-Currents, with a third on the way. I count myself blessed to be among such a talented stable of authors, both old and new, established and current. As adept wordsmith and Counter-Currents-published poetess Juleigh Howard-Hobson wrote recently, the works put out by this publisher aren’t likely to receive much mainstream support. Thus, it is up to us—the vanguard, if you will, those ahead of the proverbial curve, to look after one another and make sure that our own are taken care of.

I make a similar point in my piece “Alt Right Art”; in order to fight the depredations of political correctness, we must insure that “our” artists have space to operate, free from pressure to conform to what our adversaries find to be palatable or “acceptable.” In short, we need the freedom to be determinedly and implacably UNacceptable wherever and whenever we deem it appropriate to do so. We need, that is a degree of clout, and clout can only be assured through our seeing to the continued financial independence of our benefactors.

Therefore a donation to Counter-Currents is a very real vote for all of our continued artistic and editorial liberty. It is an investment in our future as freethinkers. Please consider making a contribution to the cause of true intellectual liberty.

Gregory Hood: “It’s Good Business

Juleigh Howard-Hobson: “There We Go

Jeff Costello: “Let Us be Comrades

Andrew Hamilton: “Why I Support Counter-Currents

    I’ve been thinking that next time there should be certain goals within the overall goal which, when reached, activate a pledge by Counter-Currents concerning what won’t be published. For instance, you could say that once a certain amount is reached, you pledge to never publish articles endorsing Flat Earth theory. That could be a powerful motivator, the only problem being that we already know that Counter-Currents wouldn’t publish anything of the sort. Nevertheless, it could inject some humor into the process, which could potentially increase enthusiasm for passing various amusing benchmarks.

      I don’t even want to jokingly insinuate that my opinions are up for sale.

    To paraphrase the Joker in The Dark Knight, “This country deserves a better class of thought criminal, and Counter-Currents has been giving it to them!”
