Forced to be Free:
The Case for Paternalism

Rousseau

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

626 words

Spanish translation here

Paternalism means treating people like children. Children lack the maturity and wisdom to make their own decisions. Thus they need parents — or people playing the paternal role — to tell them what to do and, on occasion, to force them to do it.

Most people have no problem with paternalism when dealing with actual children, as well as the retarded, the senile, and the insane. Read more …

What is Racism?

Charles M. Blow

1,571 words

One of the essays I have returned to most frequently in the last several years has been George Orwell’s “Politics of the English Language.” Much of the much-maligned polarization in our civic culture comes down to unstated disagreements on the meanings of terms, and as Orwell said, our language “becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.” Read more …

Benedict Anderson
Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism
Rev. ed., New York: Verso, 2006

After the Second World War, a large portion of the academic class went into overdrive dissecting and pathologizing the ideas and forces, both actual and concocted, which served as the foundations for nationalism. Read more …

Religious Piety in Sparta & Rome

Augustus as Pontifex Maximus

1,847 words

As (post-)Christian moderns, we are twice handicapped in trying to understand the religions of the ancient pagan states such as Sparta and Rome. Where we tend to think of religious belief as universalistic, other-worldly, monolatrous, and dogmatic, ancient paganism was particularistic, world-embracing, polytheistic (almost ecumenical), and non-dogmatic (but ritualistic).  Read more …

The Sound of Music:
The Outcome of the Austrian Elections

Sebastian Kurz

One of the few things which can be stated with any certainty about the consequences of the recent Austrian elections on October 15 is that they are unpredictable, both for Austria and for European politics. The hard Left is out of parliament, the Social Democrats are in disarray, the anti-immigration course of the conservatives under a new, young leader has reaped dividends, and the “far Right” FPÖ has entered a coalition government.

Interview with Spencer J. Quinn on White Like You

1,867 words

What inspired you to write White Like You?

Failure, basically. As a writer prior to my time at Counter-Currents, I had met with consistent failure. In the 1990s and 2000s I had written several novels, all of which face-planted when I attempted to find a publisher. It was very discouraging. Read more …

If I Were 18 Today

11,651 words

Translated by Alexander Jacob

The following is the text of a speech delivered on June 1, 1967 at the University of Marburg.[1]

Prince Friedrich Christian of Schaumburg-Lippe (1906-83) was the youngest son of Prince Georg of Schaumburg-Lippe and Princess Marie-Anne of Saxe-Altenburg. Appalled at the quick abdications of the German princes during the German Revolution of 1918-19, Read more …

Masterpieces of Aryan Thought 2
Richard Wagner’s “Judaism in Music”

559 words

Published pseudonymously in 1850 in the influential journal Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, “Judaism in Music” is both the most-often cited and least-often read of Richard Wagner’s voluminous prose works. Although commonly described as a vile work of hate speech or as a model for the breathless prose style of Der Stürmer, Wagner’s essay is actually rather mild and extremely clinical in its assessment of the mostly deleterious influence of Jews in German culture.

Judaism in the Ancient World

3,418 words

“L’ebraismo nel mondo antico,La Vita Italiana, July 1938
Trans. Das Gletscherkreuz

One of the tactical arguments most commonly used against those who bring up the Jewish problem today, is that anti-Semitism is a mere fad, an imported ideology, an attempt to emulate German racism and Nazism, something which has no real place in our country. Read more …

Ten Questions for Jason Kessler

3,667 words

For those who don’t know, how did you end up creating Unite the Right?

Why We Are So Good Looking

Frank Franz of Germany’s NPD

1,637 words

A recent study in the Journal of Public Economics draws a conclusion we arrived at a long time ago: Right-Wingers are better looking than Leftists. Researchers conducted several experiments, one of which involved showing subjects photos of various politicians and political candidates: members of the European Parliament, U.S. gubernatorial and congressional candidates, candidates for the Australian House of Representatives, etc. Read more …

The Truth About Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King as a saint.

2,202 words

In November of 2017, 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.

Remembering Jack London:
January 12, 1876–November 22, 1916

442 words

Jack London was born John Griffith Chaney in San Francisco on January 12, 1876. An adventurer and Jack of all trades in his youth, London achieved fame and fortune as a fiction writer and journalist. But he never forgot his working class roots and remained a life-long advocate of workers’ rights, unionism, and revolutionary socialism. (See his essay “What Life Means to Me.”) Read more …

White Self-Guilt Twists Historical Truths and Undermines Healthy Nationalism Everywhere

2,219 words

A few days ago I ran across a provocative and thought-provoking tidbit in a Western production of an anti-Japanese propaganda movie. This movie was proudly and gleefully introduced to me by a typically bitter and hostile Chinese chauvinist colleague of mine, in a WeChat group of which I am a reluctant member for the sake of work-related communication.

Christ-Like Aspects of the Sage According to Epictetus

1,030 words

I was recently reading the Discourses of the Stoic philosopher Epictetus (c. 55-135 AD). These recordings of Epictetus’ teachings are a very fine work: one really feels as though one is in the early Roman Empire, at Epictetus’ school, and the master is speaking to us directly, in a very practical way.

A Mythology for the New Right

2,453 words

As the New Right begins to penetrate mainstream culture, some of the old challenges will fade away (the label “Nazi” is losing the last vestiges of its seriousness, even to hardline leftists). Part of overcoming some of these old struggles in acquiring relevance, however, is confronting new challenges that come with relevance. Read more …
