Chicken Sunday for White Nationalism

1,687 words

Habits of mind break hard. When these habits are formed in childhood, they have a way of sticking with a person throughout his life. They structure his thinking and his perspective, and often take effort and discipline to overcome. Read more …

Uncle Max & the Commie Hunters

Maxwell Knight (right) and friends.

2,074 words

The spymaster’s fascist background is just one of the many obstacles in telling the Maxwell Knight  story.

One of the oddest television projects now in development is a forthcoming series about master spy Maxwell Knight, the real-life “M” of MI5. Read more …

The Failure of Feminism in Aggretsuko

2,275 words

Aggretsuko, or Aggressive Retsuko, is a 2017 Netflix anime that has garnered notable fanfare, praise, and controversy from critics and audiences. When I say “critics,” of course that means the establishment organs of liberal NPCthink who have been falling over themselves to gush about the goodness of the ridiculous, hysterical anti-male tropes in this bizarre musical comedy.

The Moral Superiority of White Nationalism

5,202 words

Over the past year, I have spoken with—and thought about—a particular demographic that should be open to White Nationalism, but which largely has not been: conservative Gen-Xers. They tend to reject White Nationalism as being un-American, as immoral, and most prominently, as comprised of losers and failures.

Arisches Kind

1,463 words

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month had passed, and Elsa Bauer could not sleep while the wind howled about the hilltop farm, running cold, malevolent fingers down her big stone chimney, the old beech’s branches rustling against the slate and glass like a cacophony from a demonic symphony.

The Jew Disraeli & the Construction of the Merchants’ Empire

3,352 words

In a short text [“Imperium britannicum, ovvero: due diritti”] published in this periodical [La Vita Italiana] at the time of the sanctions (November 1935), we have attempted to characterize the physiognomy of the so-called British “empire” from the point of view of the typology of forms of civilization.

On that occasion, we showed that the British Empire is no more than a caricature and a counterfeit of a true empire. Read more …

Christianity & White Nationalism

2,366 words

It is a commonplace among White Nationalists to disparage Christianity. This is understandable inasmuch as most of the Christian denominations today have abandoned almost all of the tenets of Christianity. The typical Christian minister or priest is no longer a saver of souls but is instead an anti-white social justice warrior (SJW). “Is the Pope Catholic?” is no longer a self-evident joke but is now a serious question that must be answered in the negative.

Robin Hood

1.125 words

Here is another cash grab served up in time for Thanksgiving. This train wreck of a film is a turkey that cannot be pardoned. Of the countless film adaptations of the Robin Hood legend made since the early twentieth century, the latest is somewhere at the very bottom of the pile.

Director Otto Bathurst wants you to know that his adaptation is different from its predecessors: modern, cool, up-to-date. Read more …

David Wu & the Great Thot Purge of 2018

David Wu

2,357 words

As a partisan political weapon, lawfare is the penalization and literal criminalization of dissent from the ruling order. For years, through a series of largely uncoordinated – but ideologically homogeneous – actions, the Radical Left has been weaponizing the American judicial system with the aim of enforcing racio-cultural norms, and specifically the destruction of the white race, Read more …

Guide to Kulchur
Episode 3: Play

99 words / 1:26:15

Counter-Currents Book Editor John Morgan again joins Fróði Midjord on the new podcast series, Guide to Kulchur – this time with video! – to discuss Play, a Swedish film from 2011 (available in English) by Ruben Östlund which depicts a group of Swedish children who are bullied and intimidated, and finally robbed, by a group of black children in modern-day Sweden, based on actual police reports. Similar to The Square, which we discussed last week, it mocks and critiques the politically-correct atmosphere of today’s Sweden, where no one dares to acknowledge the immigration problem that is right in front of everyone’s eyes.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

1,290 words 

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the latest installment in the ever-expanding Wizarding World franchise and the second film of the Fantastic Beasts series. Much like Peter Jackson’s bloated Hobbit trilogy, the Fantastic Beasts franchise is an unapologetic cash grab and will sprawl across five films, approaching the length of the original Harry Potter series.

Are You Local?
The Grotesque Genius of The League of Gentlemen

2,087 words

Monty Python’s Flying Circus sent a shockwave through 1960s England as its anarchic and surrealist comedy completely overturned televisual orthodoxy. The show was the result of a collaboration between a group of supremely talented, middle-class Englishmen (and one American) who, whilst challenging the norms of mainstream comedy, still kept the irony and biting satire that have always been the staple of English comedy at its core.

Guide to Kulchur
Episode 2: The Square

82 words / 76:10

Counter-Currents Book Editor John Morgan joins Fróði Midjord on the new podcast series, Guide to Kulchur, to discuss The Square, a recent Swedish film (available in English) which mocks and critiques the intensely politically-correct culture of modern-day Sweden. The film depicts the director of a modern art museum in Stockholm whose pride in his liberal beliefs is challenged when his wallet and phone are stolen, and he is forced to venture into an immigrant area in order to attempt to retrieve them.

Listen to “Guide to Kulchur (guest: John Morgan) – episode 2, The Square” on Spreaker.

Remembering P. R. Stephensen:
November 20, 1901–May 28, 1965

P. R. Stephensen, circa 1934

237 words

Percy Reginald Stephensen was born on November 20, 1901. Stephensen was a writer, publisher, and political activist dedicated to the interests of the white race and the Australian nation. Like Jack London, Stephensen was an archetypal man of the racially conscious Left. He began his political career as a Communist but later moved to the nationalistic, anti-Semitic Right. From 1942 to 1945, he was interned without trial for his pro-German and pro-Japanese sympathies.

Mad as Hell:
How Broadway Ruined Network

5,521 words

When asked to name my favorite film, I have a tough time choosing between Fight Club and Network. I was delighted, therefore, when I learned that Network had been turned into a Broadway play starring Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, everything, as it turned out.

Libertarianism, Cosmopolitanism, & Indo-European Tradition, Part II

A Swedish tapestry from the twelfth century showing Odin, Thor with his war hammer, and Freyr with stalks of wheat. Scholars believe this reflects the traditional tripartite division of Indo-European societies.

5,533 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

The national-liberalism of 1789 in the face of the Indo-European tradition

The Indo-European tradition, which some people present as Tradition tout court, is the tradition of a tripartite and hierarchical organization of society, where the sovereign function (which relates to the spiritual sovereignty of the priesthood and to the political sovereignty of the sovereign) takes precedence over the military function, which in turn takes precedence over the productive and reproductive function.
