Learning from Donald Trump

1,676 words

Having a Mencken-like disdain for America’s ruling class, I would like to put forward what I have entitled Quintilian’s Postulate 1: conservatives are stupid and lack courage; liberals are stupid and lack self-awareness. Donald Trump is a unique politician, I believe, because he possesses both courage and self-awareness.

The Long Night of the Kali Yuga

2,103 words

“I don’t want any more stories,” Bran snapped, his voice petulant. He had liked Old Nan and her stories once … They left her with him all day now, to watch over him and clean him and keep him from being lonely, but she just made it worse. “I hate your stupid stories.”

Counter-Currents Under Attack

924 words

On Wednesday, August 16th, Facebook shut down the Counter-Currents Publishing page and has blocked my personal account. This is an inconvenience, as it is an important way that people follow Counter-Currents. But it is not a catastrophe.

On Vetting & Entry into a White Ethnostate, Part II

4,453 words

Part 1 of 3. For Part 1 of this series, click here.

The Naturalization Act of 1790 was the American Founding Fathers’ first attempt at establishing a legal path towards citizenship for non-citizens. It stated that immigration to the United States, fledgling nation that it was, should be limited to “whites of good character.” Here is the breakdown according to Infogalactic:

Why White Nationalists Shouldn’t be Discouraged by the Charlottesville Attack

866 words

James Alex Fields, Jr.

A 20 year old named James Alex Fields, Jr. rammed his Dodge Challenger into a group of people during the Charlottesville March this past Saturday, August 12, 2017, killing one. The interesting thing is that if he had been a Muslim doing it for the sake of jihad, the media and academia would in response be promoting a narrative that we should not allow this attack to be used to malign Muslims across the nation because most Muslims, according to them, are law-abiding people of good will.

The Sieges of Charlottesville & Calais

1,313 words

On the same day that the combined forces of the Left were doing violence to the rights of free speech and assembly of the Unite the Right marchers in Charlottesville, VA, their cultural Marxist brethren were at the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, NY doing aesthetic violence to the American premiere of Gaetano Donizetti’s opera The Siege of Calais (1836).

The Altamont of the Alt Right?

1,638 words

Czech version here

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”–John F. Kennedy

On December 6, 1969, the Altamont Speedway Free Festival was held in Northern California, featuring Santana, The Jefferson Airplane, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and The Rolling Stones. It was supposed to be a West Coast version of Woodstock, which had been held four months before in upstate New York. But Altamont descended into violence and mayhem, with one murder and three accidental deaths, plus countless brawls and petty crimes. Read more …

Princess Mononoke

890 words

I feel like the skinhead who went to see Cats because he’d heard that T. S. Eliot was a fascist.

Japanese cartoons are very popular in our circles. They have even been reviewed at Counter-Currents. The closest thing I had seen to a Japanese cartoon is Twilight of the Cockroaches. But that mixed animation and live action, and it was more than 25 years ago, so I remember almost nothing about it. Read more …

Author’s Note:

The following text is the basis of a talk that I gave to the Scandza Forum in Oslo on July 1, 2017. Because time was short, however, I dispensed with the written text and spoke extemporaneously on the topic.

Diversity & Inclusion, the White Nationalist Way

1,123 words

“Diversity” is normally bemoaned and rightfully criticized in White Nationalist circles, but I have yet to see the policy referred to by its full name of Diversity and Inclusion. This voodoo magic phrase is a sacrament of corporate and government bureaucrats, and is a used to banish the lurking demons of Racism, Homophobia, Transphobia, and so on. Its use is a neat illustration of the circular logic that incarcerates the Overman and keeps the white collar Tyler Durdens of the world in check (the movie character, not the Kremlin asset at Zerohedge). Human resources catladies, Catberts, Pointy-haired Bosses, Shylocks, Hipsters, and Jewish fashion magazine publishers, amongst other shock troops of the Kulturkampf, clamor for legislative protection of Diversity and Inclusion.

Google has a Diversity Problem, & So Does the United States

2,243 words

Ex-Google employee James Damore

The widely-circulated, vaguely reactionary memo that got a Google employee fired for violating the firm’s ‘code of conduct’ by criticizing Diversity is only the tip of the iceberg. Throughout corporate America and especially Google, we find the perverse influence of a race- and sex-based marxism, one that tolerates its long-fought enemy of capitalism in exchange for increasing the wealth and status of some preferred classes relative to others.

Ruby Ridge, 25 Years On

Randy Weaver

2,328 words

August 22nd will be the 25th anniversary of what is popularly called “Ruby Ridge.” Most readers my age or older will remember Ruby Ridge well, but it is possible there are some younger individuals reading this without that same cognizance of the events.

The name refers to a mountaintop in Northern Idaho where — in 1992 — a man named Randy Weaver and his family ended up in a prolonged, armed standoff with the federal government that ended in the death of his wife and 14-year-old son.  Read more …

A Short Guide to Reading Left

354 words

At their best, leftist thinkers are unmatched in their ability to detect, explain, and belittle systems of power. Fundamentally, that is the goal of the left: to “deconstruct” hierarchies they find immoral, for one reason or another. On the whole, this is a negative, anti-civilizational impulse. As José Antonio Primo de Rivera said, the left, “at bottom aspires to destroy everything, even goodness.”  Read more …

A Perspective as Wide as the World

2,545 words

Here’s an analogy which neatly sums up the difference between Alt-Right or race-realist thinking and more mainstream conservatives. Imagine a vast pointillist painting, such as Georges Seurat’s famous A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, but a thousand times the size. Imagine also that this painting depicts scenes which present humanity as it really is and furthermore acts as a warning against the Progressive Left. Read more …

To Marcus Aurelius

150 words

Good night, Marcus. Blow out the light
and close your book. Where Ursa runs
the stars’ alarm now fills the night.
Heaven speaks to us in tongues,
a barbarian’s fear-stricken shriek
your Latin cannot understand.
Eternal terror, dark and bleak,
reigns over our frail mortal land. Read more …

Ben Klassen (1918 – 1993)

Part 2 of 2. Part 1 here.

Prophet of RaHoWa

Frustrated by the bumbling of the Republican Party, and tired of Christian white advocates distracted by Genesis 12:3’s insistence that “God” would “bless” those who supported Jews and “curse” those that did not, Klassen decided to create his own religion. What he came up with was a non-deist faith whose purpose was to advance the white race. Read more …
