Heidegger & the Jewish Question, Part 3

1,711 words

Part 3 of 4. Part 1 here. Part 2 here. Part 4 here.

Heidegger treats it as a matter of fact that Jews have a marked predisposition for “planetary criminality.” But as a philosopher, he cannot be comfortable merely noting this fact. He wants to understand it, Read more …

In Defense of Boomers

1,481 words

It has become fairly common to hear people in these circles speak about white baby boomers with increasing animosity. The basic idea is that the last generation of whites raised in a largely white country could have worked together to prevent the browning of America and its related troubles Read more …

What Trump Should Have Said at NATO

1,660 words

Trump’s recent speech to NATO has received a lot of attention due to his call for member nations to pay their fair share, and due to the tittering, smirking, and blinking that came from the Last Men that we call “our allies.” Read more …

Nations Don’t Go Extinct Due to Loss of Material Comforts:
A Response to Bain Dewitt

Jared Kushner donned his smartest business casual attire for his visit to American troops in Iraq, while Ivanka wrote his name across the front of his bulletproof vest so that everyone in the changing room would know it was his.

3,285 words

The article “Russians Are Not #Ourguys” by Mr. Dewitt has generated a whirlwind of heated response from Counter-Currents readers. In my humble and candid opinion, the article reeks of being a piece of neocon shilling (dotted by some ostensibly decent and rational remarks, admittedly) which reads like it’s straight from the National Review or even The Weekly Standard. Read more …

Remembering Oswald Spengler:
May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936

487 words

Oswald Spengler was born on this day in 1880. For his contributions to the philosophy of history and culture, Spengler is one of the most important philosophical influences on the North American New Right, largely by way of his disciple Francis Parker Yockey. Spengler is often wrong, but even when he errs, he does so magnificently. Read more …

Hendrik Verwoerd, Hero of South Africa

1,583 words

Stephen Mitford Goodson
Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd: South Africa’s Greatest Prime Minister
Second edition, self-published, 2017

This is a thoroughly referenced, cogent biography on the “man of granite” whom I respectfully suggest remains immeasurably more than only South Africa’s “greatest Prime Minister,” but rather is one of the great statesmen of our era. Read more …

Remembering Louis-Ferdinand Céline:
May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961

188 words

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist. For more on Céline, see the following works on this website: Read more …

The Nature of the Liberal Scientist

1,628 words

It has baffled me for a long time why scientists, among all people, are among the most fervent proponents of egalitarianism and race denialism. This phenomenon is more salient in the humanities and social sciences, on which many would have a second thought before qualifying them as “science.” Read more …

Bless the Man’s Heart

David Cole

1,581 words

Recently, I had one of those “bless his heart” moments after reading David Cole’s “Racism: The Last Refuge of Us All?” over at Taki’s Magazine. After reading the first sentence, in which he claims that it’s not Samuel Johnson’s patriotism but “racism that’s the last refuge of a scoundrel,” I tensed up like a boxer preparing to take a liver shot.

The Real Victims in Manchester – The White Working Class

Manchester residents observing a moment of silence on Thursday.

1,180 words

What does it mean to be a Mancunian? Perhaps it’s as simple as being a resident or former resident of Manchester. Or perhaps it’s characterized by a particular type of identity, one that is often embodied in the numerous musicians who have come from there in recent decades. Read more …

The Soul of an Establishment Philosopher:
On John Gray’s The Soul of the Marionette

1,318 words

John Gray
The Soul of the Marionette: A Short Enquiry into Human Freedom
London: Allen Lane, 2015

Of the current establishment philosophers, John Gray is one of the ones I like the most. My favorite of his books, Straw Dogs, is a classic of contemporary philosophy, demolishing the infantile and delusional fantasies of the myth of progress like a rational adult picking apart a children’s fairy-tale.

Heidegger & the Jewish Question, Part 2

1,291 words

Part 2 of 4

Part 1 here. Part 3 here. Part 4 here.

Heidegger discusses “Jewry” (Judentum, Judenschaft), meaning Jews as a people, in nine places in the Black Notebooks. I will also discuss a tenth reference to Jews as a people that was discovered in the manuscript called Die Geschichte des Seyns (The History of Beyng, 1938-40) and published in 2014. Read more …

What Would Evola Do?

5,766 words

The follow is the text of the talk that Counter-Currents editor John Morgan delivered to The New York Forum on Saturday.

Editor’s Note: This interview was recently conducted by e-mail between Aedon Cassiel and Gilad Atzmon. Atzmon’s latest book, Being in Time: A Post-Political Manifesto, is being released tomorrow (May 24).

In your work, who do you consider yourself to be speaking to? If you don’t have a specific audience in mind, then my question is: if only one group of people could hear your message, who would you choose, and what would you have them do about it? Read more …

Special Pleading for Fascist Daddy

2,183 words

Francis Beckett
Fascist in the Family: The Tragedy of John Beckett MP
London & New York: Routledge, 2017 (Routledge Studies in Fascism and the Far Right)

Here is a book of deep political scholarship and heartbreaking family history. It misses being great because the author lost the plot during the many years he worked on it, and he wound up hanging his father’s story on a lurid promotional “hook,” which I’ll get into below. Read more …

Remembering Richard Wagner:
May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883

375 words

Richard Wagner was born 204 years ago today in Leipzig in the Kingdom of Saxony. He died on February 13, 1883 in Venice. As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right. I wish to draw your attention to the following writings which have been published at Counter-Currents/North American New RightRead more …

Remembering Dominique Venner:
April 16, 1935–May 21, 2013

440 words

It was four years ago today that French historian and European patriot Dominique Venner ended his life with a bullet on the altar of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Venner wished to draw attention to the demographic decline of European man and to indicate what we must be prepared to give to save our people: everything. But his death will be in vain unless it is remembered. So take this day to remember Dominique Venner: his life, his work, and his sacrifice. Read more …

The Accidental Research of David Skarbek’s The Social Order of the Underworld

2,372 words

David Skarbek
The Social Order of the Underworld
Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2014

As long as academia compels its scholars to write books in which they avoid asking questions about race, discerning readers will ask such questions for them. The Social Order of the Underworld is one such book. Nominally, it is a study which uses economics to explain prison gangs and their function, structure, and behavior. Read more …

Remembering Julius Evola:
May 19, 1898–June 11, 1974

919 words

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on May 19, 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website. In commemoration of his birthday, I wish to draw your attention to the following resources.

Dealing with Doxers

658 words

For years, I have argued that our mostly online and anonymous movement is more likely to develop into a large and formidable real world community if we follow two basic rules. First, everyone gets to choose his own level of explicitness and involvement. Second, everybody else has to respect those decisions, including people’s decisions to keep their identities secret.  Read more …

I Scream, You Scream

Chinese ice cream.

1,412 words

In case you missed it, I recently I got into a little tiff with one of my blogging idols, Kim du Toit. On April 28, Counter-Currents published an article of mine, “Kim du Toit and the Freedom Paradox,” in which I more or less introduced Kim to the Alt Right and took him to task in a nice and respectful way over our political differences. Kim was one of my favorite bloggers of the previous decade and was just coming off an eight-year hiatus, so I figured the time was right. Read more …
