Reading Marx Right:
A “Reactionist” Interpretation of The Communist Manifesto

Oswald Spengler, who attempted to fuse socialism with the Right.

5,190 words

There is much about The Communist Manifesto that is valid from a Rightist viewpoint – if analyzed from a reactionary perspective. One does not need to be a Marxist to accept that a dialectical interpretation of history is one of several methods by which history can be studied, albeit not in a reductionist sense, but in tandem with other methods such as, in particular, the cyclical morphology of Oswald Spengler,[1] the economic morphology of civilizations as per Brooks Adams,[2] the cultural vitalism of Yockey,[3] and the heroic vitalism of Carlyle.

A Nigger in the Woodpile

3,969 words

Early in Erle Stanley Gardner’s first Perry Mason novel, The Case of the Velvet Claws, Gardner’s lawyer-detective finds himself questioning a young woman, one of the occupants of a spacious home in which a murder has just occurred. Norma Veitch has already been grilled by the police, as Mason learns: “They acted as though they thought they had discovered the nigger in the woodpile . . . They took me upstairs, and gave me what they call a third degree, I guess.” Read more …

The Roman Way, Part Two

Jacopo Ripanda, Hannibal Crossing the Alps

3,308 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part One here)

Many factors contributed to the rise of Rome, but above the rest stood Rome’s indefatigability. Internal turmoil seemed just as prevalent as external strife. Rome overcame both because the Romans persevered. Read more …

2,409 words

Part 1 of 2

Much pen and paper is spent analyzing the fall of Rome, but there has been much less concerning the rise of Rome. This is understandable, since Western Civilization is by all measures in decline, having reached the terminal phase of foreign invasion and the replacement of its people. Read more …

“You’re Not Welcome Here”:
The Diplomatic Crisis between Turkey & Holland

In Istanbul, once the most civilized metropolis of the Roman world, brave men defended their national identity by stabbing oranges with butter knives in front of cameras.

1,668 words

The Turkish Context

Would you rather be a member of the world’s most exclusive club of oligarchs or an Oriental potentate? Only one person in the twenty-first century has had to struggle with that question so far, and his name is Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey. As the hurdles to becoming a Bilderberger in good standing grew higher and the misbehavior of his predecessor’s former subjects became international in scale, the choice has been made for him.  Read more …

Trump Will Complete the System of German Idealism!

2,341 words

A few months ago, a delightful eccentric was interviewed on the streets of New York, claiming that Donald Trump, if elected, would “raise Thule,” as well as Atlantis. This chubby-cheeked, curly-haired, manic moppet (who calls himself “Kantbot”) went on to predict that Trump would “complete the system of German Idealism.” The video went viral – at least in our circles.

Hitler & Clausewitz:
The Philosopher as War Cry, Part Four

An East German soldier guards Clausewitz’s grave in the 1980s.

1,982 words

Part 4 of 4 (Part One here; Part Two here; Part Three here)

Conclusion: Freedom or Death

After his death, Clausewitz had a public destiny rare for generals, let alone theorists. He was not only enthusiastically celebrated in the Third Reich, a regime firmly dedicated to many of the Prussian virtues, but, for better and for worse, his words proved to be of foundational importance for Hitler and his own life’s work.

Lines To Be Read Aloud on International Women’s Day at a School Assembly

112 words

What would you like to do, dear little girl,
When you grow up? Something with animals
Or children, perhaps? Schoolyard love soon palls
And that scary blank expanse you see unfurl—
Look closer: it’s a blueprint for a sort
Of intangible palace you’re supposed to build
Around yourself. Then, at last, when you have willed
It into being (no hurry; women fought

To clear a wide array of paths for you),  Read more …

Moralism & Moral Arguments in the War for Western Survival

The following is the text of the speech that was made by Prof. MacDonald at the Northwest Forum on February 25, 2017 (audio here).

Obviously President Obama was a horrific President in pretty much every possible way. His domestic policies in particular have been anathema to the Alt Right—he would, after all, have loved to sign an immigration amnesty/surge bill into law. Nevertheless, a couple of things he said in his farewell address made a lot of sense Read more …

Hitler & Clausewitz:
The Philosopher as War Cry, Part One

Young Clausewitz.

4,080 words

Part 1 of 4

All intellectuals dream that their ideas will not be confined to the dead letters of books accumulating dust on library shelves, but should possess the world. An underexplored but highly fertile field in this respect is the influence of the great Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz upon the German dictator and warlord Adolf Hitler. This is an extremely controversial issue. Clausewitz is the preeminent military theorist, rivaled in fame only by the ancient Chinese sage Sun Tzu. Read more …

White Nationalists are Not “White Supremacists”

The charge that White Nationalists are “White Supremacists” has two aspects. First, there is the claim that whites think of ourselves as superior to other groups. Second, there is the idea that whites want to rule over other groups.

Reasons & Rhyme

Georgia Governor Lester Maddox, champion of segregation.

1,934 words

I’m always thinking about how to express my reasons for supporting White Nationalism. Of course, there are many. But when you think about it, there really aren’t any reasons at all.

Does a human being really need to express reasons to have a home? A bed? Shoes and clothing? Food and drink? Personal effects and belongings? Basic freedoms and rights? I guess if you’re studying social studies for the first time in middle school, it might be useful to categorize the basic human needs and enumerate the objective grounds for meeting them.
