What’s in a Home?

2,155 words

I took an interest in architecture a few years back, after reading Crawford’s The World Beyond Your Head. The book described the effects of the arrangement of space on how we perceived and acted in the world. The effects of arranged space could be negative—the distraction of eye-catching advertisements and flashing lights—or positive—the machine-like feeling of cooking in a well-stocked and well-organized kitchen.

2018: A Space Manifesto

66 words / 2:29

Counter-Currents supporter Omar Filmersson made this short video to mark the importance of the appearance of Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto. He writes: “The Swedish translation of Dr. Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto is well in progress. Swedes are aging and dying in every sense, like an old man on his deathbed. This clip shows what will happen once the Swedish edition is out.”

Tucker Carlson
Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution
New York: Free Press, 2018

Many on the Dissident Right have a thing for Tucker Carlson. Like Ann Coulter, Carlson is one of the few mainstream media personalities whose positions seem to conflict very little with our views. Read more …

The Ironies of History

1,017 words

The ravages of old age are mitigated by its consolations. Physical action is slowed, but one’s actions seem more purposeful than those of youth. It takes longer to learn things, but the things learned in old age seem more meaningful. Read more …

Remembering Ezra Pound:
October 30, 1885 to November 1, 1972

702 words

“A slave is one who waits for someone else to free him.” — Ezra Pound

One of the ongoing projects of the North American New Right is the recovery of our tradition. One does not have to go too far back before one discovers that every great European thinker and artist is a “Right Wing extremist” by today’s standards.

Understanding the Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre

2,119 words

Here we go again. It happens now with depressing regularity: a white man who is alarmed at white ethnic displacement goes to a place of worship used by non-whites and starts shooting.  Read more …

Fruits of the Tree of Life

A candelight vigil near the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh following the shooting.

1,478 words

It seems that someone who appears to be “Alt Right” in some way[1] shot and killed eleven Jews at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Knowing very well how the media work, it is unquestionable that this event will dominate the news cycle for some time to come. Read more …

The Zionist Factor in Africa:
Mossad & Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela meeting with Israeli PM Shimon Peres in Johannesburg in 2002.

4,300 words

During the 1980s, when the offensive against South Africa (SA) was at its height, the Right was focused on the prospect of the Soviet Union taking over the mineral wealth and strategic position of SA. I recall this because I was among those in New Zealand speaking in favor of SA, and using this specter as the main reason for opposing the anti-SA campaigns, albeit among the few who also defended white self-determination.

Killing Lincoln

1,160 words

One of the unmistakable features of modern conservatives is their not-so-veiled hostility toward heritage America. Some attribute this to ethnic hostility, given the infiltration of the Right by neoconservatives. Initially, these people made the journey from communism to anti-communism and were never conservative in temperament. Of course, the royal lifestyles of many conservatives has made them into unpleasant snobs. All of that is true to one degree or another, but it obscures an important point about modern conservatives.  Read more …

Partying in Rome:
La Grande Bellezza

I am always astounded by how bad the films playing in mainstream cinemas look and, when I occasionally go to see them, I often find that my initial impressions based on the ads or a synopsis were fully justified. So when I enjoy a fairly recent film, it is noteworthy. Read more …

Transsexuality vs. Feminism vs. the Radical Right

1,837 words

Norman Bates has been created, a mentally deranged man dressing up as mother. There are many like Robert Bloch’s character; some like Liam Suleman/Lucy Edwards, William/Gillian Jaggs, and Kayleigh-Louise Woods/Kyle Lockwood have all murdered women exactly like the character; others behave in other violent and depraved ways, like Miguel/Michelle Martinez, Kim Leverton, and Gary/Carys Cooper, who have all sexually assaulted children; still others are non-violent, but equally psychologically damaged.

Blaming Your Parents

Young Sailor Ripley lacked “parental guidance.”

1,444 words

In the past, people used to blame the gods or the fates for their misfortunes. These days, they like to blame their parents.

  • “My parents were sedentary and fat, and their bad example is why I grew up sedentary and fat.”
  • “My father was always uptight. And now I’m uptight and can’t enjoy life.”
  • “Growing up with a mother who drank, it was natural that I would take to drink as well.”

Matt Hale
The Racial Loyalist Manifesto
CreateSpace, 2016

Greg Johnson’s White Nationalist Manifesto (2018) is a big hit. It remains in the top ranks of the Political Philosophy category at Amazon. According to the publisher, it is selling “like gangbusters.” After reading this book, I decided to take a look at Matt Hale’s work with a similar name, The Racial Loyalist Manifesto, to see how the two books compare.

The Fallacy of Progress

2,835 words

Our “progressive” obsessions for change neglect to consider consequences. Change is demanded for the sake of a fad or a slogan: “equality,” “democracy,” “reproductive rights” . . . Even a word of caution is damned as “reactionary,” “old-fashioned,” or “fascist.” Traditions, customs, and beliefs are regarded as being as transient as the planned obsolescence of computers.

On Cucks and Queens:
The Mark Salvas Affair

Mark Salvas

1,967 words

How does it feel to be left behind? How does it feel to be cast aside even though you did nothing wrong?

We on the Right know how this feels very well. It comes with the territory when you choose to be a dissident in any society. Some on the Left, however, are beginning to experience the same kind of abandonment, despite not being dissidents at all. Or, really, they are dissidents, and they just don’t realize it yet.

The Sci-Fi Channel’s Dune & Children of Dune

1,724 words

David Lynch’s Dune (1984) is a flawed masterpiece. When I first saw it, I was deeply disappointed. Frank Herbert’s original novel made a powerful impression on me. I could see Herbert’s world, and Lynch’s vision was not my vision. But when my initial impression faded and I returned to Lynch’s film with an open mind, I found it immensely imaginative and compelling. Even the score by Toto managed to grow on me.  Read more …

Why Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Matters

1,397 words

Surely, Ian Fleming’s final book, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, is also his finest work of fiction. Published 54 years ago this month, shortly after Fleming’s death, it is visibly superior to the James Bond books in so many ways.

For one thing, it has pictures. Fleming and his editors struggled long and hard to select the right illustrator. The drawings by the illustrator who was eventually selected, John Burningham, are note-perfect and meld perfectly with the text. Read more …

We’re All Jets Now:
The Racial Politics of West Side Story

5,930 words

So Stephen Spielberg is remaking West Side Story.

Let me guess, Stephen. You believe that in the era of Trump, this classic tale of nativists versus immigrants — and about how “we should all just get along because we really aren’t all that different when you really think about it” — is more relevant than ever. Did I guess right, Stephen? Did I?

Stephen G. Bloom
Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America
New York: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2000

Many readers might not know that a surprisingly nasty fight took place in Postville, Iowa between whites and Jews more than a decade ago. The affair – or at least the lead-up to the climax of the affair – was described by the Jewish Professor of Journalism Stephen G. Bloom of Iowa City in his book Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America. Read more …

Having driven the length and breadth of Western Europe and in parts of the East, one thing has struck me on the long hours on the road: French radio is probably the worst in Europe. Most of it consists of bourgeois chatter, like their television. Read more …

Joséphin Péladan & the Occult War Against Liberal Decadence

Joséphin Péladan, as painted by Marcellin Desboutin in 1891

1,665 words

France gave the world the French Revolution in 1789. It was an epochal event, albeit a symptom of a line of cultural decadence that gave birth to both liberalism and Communism, and which remains a pall over the entire West and wherever the West reaches. It is ironic that those who were condemned as “collaborators” in France during and after the Second World War were for years prior to the war the most vociferous in their lamentations regarding the decadence of the French Republic.
