Femmes fortes

« Vous avez simplement peur des femmes fortes ! ». Je ne peux pas compter le nombre de fois où j’ai entendu cette accusation lancée contre des hommes qui ont rompu avec leur petite amie après s’être fatigués de leurs postures et bouffonneries féministes.

Je le reconnais : j’ai peur des « femmes fortes ». Il y a de bonnes raisons de ne pas les aimer et même de les craindre.  Read more …

Les Nationalistes Blancs pensent que notre race s’éteindra si nous ne créons pas des patries blanches homogènes où les gens de notre peuple pourront se reproduire et accomplir leur destin, sans subir l’interférence d’autres races. Pourtant même les Blancs qui trouvent cette idée séduisante pensent que la création réelle de patries blanches serait impossible ou immorale. Read more …

But the reprint of Applied Eugenics by Paul Popenoe and Roswell Hill Johnson — a 1918 pop-science study of exactly what it sounds like — is an unusual volume.  Read more …

Käre X,

Efter vår senaste konversation ville jag skriva ner en del av mina argument. Sedan slog det mig att många av dina vita generationskamrater förmodligen har samma frågor och funderingar. Så därför beslutade jag mig för att skriva detta som ett öppet brev.

Som många andra unga, etniskt medvetna vita män, anser du att det är viktigt att stoppa den demografiska nedgången för vår ras. Read more …

The Current Year 2015 has been Counter-Currents’ best in terms of traffic. More than one million unique visitors came to Counter-Currents in 2015. That means that more people than ever before are consuming free online information on New Right ideas. But our book sales and financial support have not grown proportionately. So far, in 2015, of the more than one million unique visitors to the website, 324 have given donations. That’s a lot of free riders on the Atlas-like shoulders of very few individuals. Read more …

Now, there are three basic facts everyone learns about Mr. Dennis at the outset.

One: he was a leading Right-wing economic and political theorist of the 1930s and ’40s—an American fascist if you will. Read more …

Part 1 of 4

Overview

The European New Right (ENR), born in 1968 in France, is the only school of thought that offers a comprehensive philosophical alternative to both the Left and the mainstream Right; not a political alternative or a cohesive popular movement, but a body of thought, an interpretative framework with distinctive concepts, major texts and authors pointing to a solid intellectual alternative to the establishment.

Those on the Right who believe that modern art is always “decadent” need to come to grips with Italian Futurism. In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, the founder of Italian Futurism and one of the prophets of Fascism, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this website.

Living in Truth: A Yuletide Homily

471px-Champaigne_Philippe_de_-_Saint_Augustin_-_1645-1650

Philippe de Champaigne, “Saint Augustin,” 1645-1650

2,587 words

The key problem of our age is disconnection from truth. This takes several distinct forms. The first, and most obvious, is the prevalence of lies. As everyone knows, modern, western civilization is founded upon lies about human nature, culture, and history. The most significant of these – underlying, in one form of another, most of the rest – is the equality lie; the myth of human equality, which is the chief myth of our age. (“Myth,” as most of my readers know, can have a positive or a negative connotation, as there are salutary myths; here, obviously, I am using the term in its purely negative sense.)  Read more …

Some Thoughts on Yule

StonehengeSunset3,344 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …
