Absolutely Delightful:

Christina Finlayson Taylor
Villanelles and Varia: Selected Poems 2004-2010 
(revised and expanded edition)
West Union, West Virginia: The Red Salon, 2016

Contemporary poetry books are one of two sorts: they are part of the mass media po-biz machine, soaked in processed agenda and dripping with carefully honed correct thought . . . or they are not. Either way, very few of them are actually what you would describe as delightful. Read more …

London: Vintage, 2010

I want to thank the commenters who have reacted to my previous articles, providing many useful insights and bits of information.

What Would Trump Do?
The Donald as Role Model

This is the sort of thing that I would write, if I were Donald Trump. It’s definitely the sort of thing I think, but my internal censor would stop it from achieving corporeal shape. Read more …

The Jungle Book

JungleBook1,652 words

Disney has released yet another Jungle Book movie, for a total of at least five which Disney has been involved in, plus a few more from other sources. Why they would produce another adaptation of the writings of an imperialist white supremacist in the current year is unclear. In any case, watching the film in comparison with its earliest Disney incarnation still provides an interesting insight into the changing sensibilities of the audience to which the producers were presumably catering.

The French Lobby Rises:
Anti-French Rapper Purged from Verdun Commemoration

1,325 words

VerdunThe degeneration of European Man is visibly evident in the state of our so-called elites. They too have grown terribly soft, culturally ignorant, and ultimately wholly without honor. One sign of this is the disgusting decline in the intellectual and moral quality of official culture, including commemorations of major events.

Consider the following. In 1979, the authorities invited no less a figure than the German writer Ernst Jünger to commemorate that titanic fratricidal struggle which was the Battle of Verdun. Read more …

The Wisdom of the East?

AlanWattsPainting1,359 words

Inspired by the unique revaluation of Alan Watts on Counter-Currents, I want to share my reflections on two decades of studying the “wisdom of the East” which Watts helped to popularize in his lifetime.

Indeed, I remember when I read Psychotherapy East and West, my first Watts book and also one of the first books I read about Eastern philosophy and religion. Read more …

Power & Infantilism

Sombart

Werner Sombart

1,385 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Werner Sombart is an author who deserves to be studied more than he currently is. Sombart furnishes an example of a serious method for studying socio-economic phenomena, one that is far removed from the deformations and biases of materialist sociology (especially of the Marxist type). For Sombart, even economic life is composed of a body and a soul. Read more …

“The Battle of Berkeley”
Identity Europa at Cal

On May 3, 2016, Identity Europa, the recently formed pro-white advocacy group led by Nathan Damigo, released a statement revealing their plan to hold an event in Sproul Plaza on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley. This was followed by a social media campaign and support from the National Policy Institute, led by Richard Spencer. The purpose was to create a “safe space” for a discussion of race and white interests.  Read more …

Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark

DancerIntheDark4,178 words

I (Minor Spoilers)

There is no other musical like Dancer in the Dark; there is no other film like Dancer in the Dark. The cinematography, the atmosphere, the acting, even the sentimentality of the film are all in some way unique. The result is a work of art that offers something entirely different from anything else, namely a character portrayal that captures at once the wild idealism and the naive, sweet, supernatural innocence of the heroine.  Read more …

Never Forget the 761!

We-Will-Never-ForgetThe original Occidental Observer comment thread from my essay “Dealing with the Holocaust” got up to 761 comments. It was deleted more than three years later by Kevin MacDonald, who wanted to get rid of unmoderated, crank- and troll-riddled comment threads. One can, however, read it on Archive.org’s Wayback Machine. The snapshot of June 26, 2015 is the last one containing the thread.  Read more …

The Era of Pyropolitics is Coming

JordanianPilot1,342 words

Romanian translation here

What do political scientists mean when they talk about “pyropolitics”? There are two sources to explore in order to understand what they mean; first, you’ll have the whole realm of political theology to investigate, including Donoso Cortés’ thoughts about liberalism, socialism and Catholicism (this last being perceived as Tradition as such) and of course you’ll have to study thoroughly the core idea of Carl Schmitt, Read more …

The Rising:
The Revolutionary Lessons of Michael Collins

michaelcollinsposter5,960 words

Michael Collins is a must see for any revolutionary, especially those who feel all hope is lost. The film begins with defeat for the revolutionaries, and the survivors hiding like rats in underground tunnels. By the end, they are dictating policy in councils of state. For a White Nationalist, the rise of the eponymous hero is consistently inspiring.

But there is also the fall. Michael Collins shows the petty rivalries, greed, and political miscalculations that can destroy any movement from within.  Read more …

The White Race as Global Proletariat

2,070 words

nexttimewefightOne of the intellectual developments responsible for transforming numerous Italian Leftists into Fascists was the notion of a nation-based proletariat. Realizing that a political consciousness based on class alone was a failing strategy for national rejuvenation, the men who would set the ideological groundwork for Fascism began to understand that more was needed to unite those nations oppressed by the global power hierarchy.

Subliminal Influences

2,924 words

TVTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

We have already had the occasion to point to the illusoriness of the claim that modern man, in general, has achieved an autonomy and self-consciousness he previously lacked. This illusion can in part be explained by the fact that attention today is primarily directed towards external conditions, to the disappearance of certain material limits to the freedom of the individual — Read more …
