On Racial Ad Hominems

1,427 words

My 4-part series on the recent Kevin MacDonald-Nathan Cofnas debate garnered quite a few comments at Counter-Currents and on social media. This was one of the most challenging and rewarding piece I have ever worked on at Counter-Currents, Read more …

In South Carolina, Criticizing Jews & Israel is Now Hate Speech

Rep. Alan Clemmons and Sen. Larry Groom, the ultimate cuckservatives, who led the fight for the bill

1,667 words

Something happened in South Carolina last month that seems to have escaped the attention of the mainstream media, for some unknown reason. On April 12, South Carolina became the first American state to legally define the criticism of Jews or the state of Israel as anti-Semitism. The definition goes into effect on July 1. Read more …

The Gospel According to Goldberg

2,037 words

Jonah Goldberg
Suicide of the West: How the Rebirth of Tribalism, Populism, Nationalism, and Identity Politics is Destroying American Democracy
New York: Crown Forum, 2018

Anyone expecting Jonah Goldberg’s Suicide of the West to be a new meditation on James Burnham’s 1964 classic[1] about the moral degeneracy of liberal democracy is in for a laugh. Having borrowed Burnham’s tasty title, Goldberg goes off in another direction entirely, often inverting Burnham’s argument. Read more …

Conspiracy

2,256 words

History, wrote Voltaire, is the sound of silken slippers running up the backstairs and of wooden shoes running down — a remark that implies that the real story of high politics is never what we are able to see but always a tale hidden from public view. Since he lived in an age of despots, enlightened and otherwise, and was on intimate terms with several of them, Voltaire was in a good position to know, and it’s doubtful, if he were alive today in the age of such despots as a Free Press and Open Government, that he would be any more convinced that what he saw was really what was going on inside the dark corridors of power.

Two Independent Films for the Dissident Right

1,072 words

I have heard it often said that no art is being produced on the Right anymore, that everything we see and hear and experience is deconstructive of traditional Western values, particularly in film. This, however, shows the laziness of many of the talking heads on the Right, who are only too ready to churn out bad news porn and not willing enough to do a modicum of research or promote those creating content.

Republicans & Real Federalism

President Trump signing legislation that bans federal funds from going to international organizations that provide abortions during his first days in office.

2,389 words

With all the febrile ebullience of a re-run of a 1950s sit-com, the Republican Party will descend upon the city of San Diego this month determined to efface any evidence that Pat Buchanan ever existed and committed to staging the miraculous spectacle of a political convention without any politics.

Unbreakable

1,903 words

Unbreakable (2000) is many people’s least favorite M. Night Shyamalan film, but I think it is his best: brilliantly conceived and scripted, beautifully acted and filmed, and quite moving. Since the film is almost two decades old, I trust nobody will complain about spoilers.

Unbreakable is a superhero film, but it does not contain any computer animation, strobe-fast editing, or deafening crashes and booms. Read more …

Az európai harci szellem

Tanulmány két harcos fejéhez. Leonardo da Vinci vázlata az Anghiari csata című falképhez (Szépművészeti Múzeum)

1,613 words

English original here

A szerző megjegyzése

Az alábbi beszédet 2018. április 8-án Helsinkiben az első alkalommal megrendezett Ébredés Konferencián adtam elő. A szervezők arra kértek, hogy az európai harci szellemről beszéljek. Szokás szerint kicsit improvizáltam, és eltértem az előkészített szövegtől. Szeretnék köszönetet mondani a szervezőknek, a találkozó mintegy 200 résztvevőjének, és annak a Counter-Currents olvasónak, akinek az adománya lehetővé tette, hogy a konferenciára utazzak.

Feeding the Counter-System

A Return to the Essence of the Right

Cerdic, the first English monarch, from an artistic depiction dating from 1611.

2,848 words

Introduction

Language serves the purpose of providing us with a map of abstract reality. Therefore, political terminology serves to achieve the aim of politics, and that is, according to Carl Schmitt, the art of recognizing and neutralizing the enemy. In other words, it establishes a friend and foe dichotomy. Read more …

Sitting on Bayonets

David Irving being arrested in Austria on November 11, 2005 on the charge of “trivializing the Holocaust.”

2,360 words

In the last few years, what we may conveniently call the “System” under which Americans live has begun to show unmistakable signs of strain, and, as in most other systems of the past, those who run and manage the System have responded to these signs with increasingly blatant tactics of repression. The most obvious strains have appeared in the emergence of potentially violent resistance in such movements as the militias, the Freemen, white separatists, secessionists of one kind or another, religious oddwads like the Branch Davidians and the Identity Churches, “sagebrush rebels” in the Far West, tax protesters, and even home schoolers.

The Eternal Nazi

Charles Krafft, The Cross Wasn’t Heavy

1,165 words

Translated from Finis Germania by F. Roger Devlin

There are still myths and there are still taboos. Nudity and sexual practices of all sorts are no longer among them, any more than good old-fashioned blasphemy. The Christian God, for example, can be abused at pleasure without the slightest consequences. One taboo, however, remains immoveable: anti-Semitism. Read more …

The Strength of Diversity

George Stubbs, Horse Attacked by a Lion, 1769

1,162 words

Diversity is held in high regard as a positive quality in Western society, and there are good historical reasons for this. Diversity of thought has led to brilliant innovation, beautiful art, and greater wealth, perhaps more than any other social factor. No one who values quality, beauty, and the good should reject diversity in principle.
