Why I Write
Saving the Idea Space

Plato and Aristotle from Raphael’s The School of Athens

1,306 words

Among my favorite “radical centrists” is the British commentator Carl Benjamin, better known as Sargon of Akkad. He’s enjoyable to listen to, not merely for the easy sound of his voice and his superior accent, but for his uncompromising honesty, even when he is wrong.

Back in March of last year, he published a video about the Alt-Right, and his summary was that it was fundamentally an idea space, protected from the policing of progressive gate-keepers.

The Moral Poverty of Libertarianism

1,380 words

Murray Rothbard

There’s an old-school form of libertarianism that draws from the work of figures like Ludwig van Beethoven, Selma Hayek, and RuPaul (sorry, I mean to say Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, and Ron Paul). This form of libertarianism works from a reasonably comprehensive picture of what it is to be a human being. Rather than thoroughly replacing homo sapiens with homo economicus, it simply focuses on addressing itself to the economic realm of life; and it proposes that people out to support a strongly libertarian order because such is in their best practical interests.  Read more …

Magical Miserablism:
Robert Stark’s Myths of the Near Future

3,584 words

Robert Stark
Journey to Vapor Island
Lulu.com, 2017

“The fact that he wears lipstick and long gloves is not calculated to endear him to the stuffy . . . In fact, more of our young novelists should wear lipstick and even nail varnish. It might brighten up their prose styles . . . The fact that his work is concerned with sex on a most serious level is also not calculated to recommend him to the sort of people who organise these literary jamborees.” — J. G. Ballard[1]

Darkest Hour

1,062 words

Darkest Hour is the second film released this year on Churchill and the latest in an ever-growing list of Churchill-related films and television shows (around two dozen over the past decade). Like its predecessors, Darkest Hour rehashes treacly warmed-over clichés about its subject and glosses over the sordid truth about this murderous psychopath.

Jews in the film industry love Churchill because he serves as a real-life example of the “superhero who saves the world from Nazi villains” trope Read more …

Charles Manson:
From Scapegoat to Messiah

1,418 words

Charles Manson was a scapegoat for the sixties counter-culture and he became a false Messiah for the seventies, eighties, nineties, and naughties counter-cultures. His real meaning can only be discerned by understanding these two equally imaginary poles of social function that he was compelled to occupy during his decades of imprisonment. The fact that Manson himself was keenly aware of this process of projection and that he actively sought to manipulate it does not attest to evidence of demonic powers but neither does it attest to the machinations of a victimized magus.

The FBI’s Secret Civil Rights Files, Part 2
The Truth About Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King as a saint.

2,202 words

Part 2 of 2. Part 1 here.

Earlier this month President Trump instructed the National Archives to release hundreds of previously-sealed documents which pertained to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Included among these documents were two FBI files which, curiously enough, have little to do with the Kennedy assassination but could have great bearing on the current struggles of the Dissident Right.

The Counter-Currents 2017 Fundraiser
Matching Grant Update

390 words

Since our last update, we have received 27 donations totaling $2,965.31, of which $2,000 will be matched by Fenek Solère, for a total of $4,965.31. This brings our grand total to $55,082.37.

The Counter-Currents 2017 Fundraiser
$535 Remains on Our Matching Grant . . .

584 words

Deadline: the end of Giving Tuesday

Since our last fundraiser update, Counter-Currents has received a $2,000 matching grant offer from Fenek Solère, the author of Rising, who gave as his reason, “Counter-Currents is one of Our People’s key strategic assets in the ongoing Culture War.” In addition, we received 26 donations, including seven all-important pledges of monthly support. That puts Counter-Currents more than 80% of the way to recovering the monthly pledge income lost when PayPal used the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as an excuse to cancel our account.

Sleeping Beauty — & the Eternal Sleep of Feminism

3,252 words

A mother in the U.K. (Sarah Hall of Newcastle) recently achieved some notoriety when several news outlets reported that she had called for the story of “Sleeping Beauty” to be banned from schools. Sleeping Beauty, you may recall, does not give Prince Charming permission to kiss her. She is, after all, asleep. Mrs. Hall states: “While we are still seeing narratives like this in school, we are never going to change ingrained attitudes to sexual behavior. In today’s society, it isn’t appropriate.”  Read more …
