6,358 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

Why did the West rise to become the most powerful civilization, the progenitor of modernity, the culture with the most prodigious creators? The answers are plenty.

Jean Piaget & the Superior Psychogenetic Cognition of Europeans, Part I

Jean Piaget

4,677 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Everyone has heard about Jean Piaget’s (1896-1980) theory of the cognitive development of children. But no one knows that his theory placed Europeans at the top of the cognitive ladder with most humans stuck at the bottom — unless Europeans taught them how to think.

Piaget is widely recognized as the “greatest child psychologist of the twentieth century.” Unlike many other influential figures, Piaget’s discoveries have withstood the test of time. Read more …

Do Not Ever Cuck

Stef Blok

1,073 words

The following is reproduced from the Erkebrand Website, which is based in The Netherlands.

Many Right-wing thinkers have already considered the question: Why do Right-oriented politics have such a difficult time gaining a foothold in Western societies? An important reason is the so-called cucken. What is cucken, exactly, and why is it relevant?

Cucken is the Dutch version of the English verb, “to cuckold.” Read more …

Greg Johnson on Hard Power vs. Soft Power

54 words / 2:20

Remembering Aleister Crowley:
October 12, 1875–December 1, 1947

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

364 words

Aleister Crowley was an English poet, novelist, painter, and mountaineer who is most famous as an occultist, ceremonial magician, and founder of the religion and philosophy of Thelema. But ironically Crowley’s supposed Satanism and Black Magic are far less frightening to most people than his politics. For Aleister Crowley was also a man of the Right.

Poverty Does Not Cause Crime

What George Lakey Gets Wrong about White Nationalists

The statue of Thorfinn Karlsefni in Philadelphia.

1,287 words

Last week, morning joggers running  along Kelly Drive in Philadelphia came across the once-prominent statue of the Viking explorer, Thorfinn Karlsefni – torn down and lying upon the ground. The general consensus is that the statue’s toppling was conducted in the same spirit that led to a spate of vandalism against Confederate monuments earlier this year, given that it has also previously been defaced by anti-white graffiti. This statue is also where Keystone United (formerly the Keystone State Skinheads) meet as part of their annual Leif Erickson Day celebration. Read more …

Columbus Day Special
Life Styles: Native & Imposed

2,856 words

For decades now, African American leaders have been calling for a formal United States apology for the American role in the slave trade, with some even demanding reparations. Indian tribes proclaim their tax-exempt status as something they are owed for a legacy of persecution by the United States. Mexican Americans in the southwest United States seek to incorporate this region, including California, into Mexico, or even to set up an independent nation, Aztlan, that will recreate the glories of the Aztec empire, destroyed centuries ago by the imperialistic Spaniards.  Read more …
