No Goal More Noble:
Thoughts for the New Year

Maybe I am fooling myself when I do this, but whenever I feel myself losing all hope, I ease up a bit and start hoping again.

Feminism & the Oppression Olympics

1,728 words

According to mainstream accounts, the current disarray of the Women’s March movement began almost at the moment of its inception. A black feminist and a brown feminist spoke disrespectfully to a Jewish feminist, and through that original sin the seeds of the movement’s subsequent troubles were sown.

The Jewish victim was Vanessa Wruble, Read more …

My Five Favorite Books of 2018

1,241 words

Although it probably needs no print space, I wanted to begin with the worst book I read because it is so awful that it inspired me to read a couple on my real top five list. In fact, I’m even cheating a little bit because I started it in 2017, but it really made an impression on me.

Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century (New York: Tim Duggan Books 2017). Read more …

Our goal this year is to raise $70,000. So far, we have received 300 donations totaling $66,239.87. So we are almost 95% of the way to our goal, with only $3,760.13 to raise by the end of December 31, Pacific Standard Time.  Read more …

Storm over Kiev:
Report on Asgardsrei 2018

4,329 words

If I wanted to provide an example of the Faustian spirit at work, I would probably point to the Asgardsrei festival. Just think about what would be the most extreme and difficult event to organize. A NSBM festival would be high on the list. After you organize it, authorities in your country attack it, and you become an unwanted and unwelcome person in your own fatherland. What do you do? You move to a different country and proceed with your work. Read more …

What Populism Isn’t

3,641 words

Jan-Werner Müller
What is Populism?
Penguin, 2017

When a political establishment feels threatened by a growing force like National Populism, Plan A is to defend the establishment and attack its opponents by dispatching middle-brow journalists to sneer and jeer and middle-brow political hacks to construct partisan talking points. Read more …

Inshallah, the THOTs

1,425 words

Why do we have such things as white Sharia?

I mean, it’s a funny meme, and sharing images of Ramzan “Ginger Sharia” Kadyrov to trigger jihad-watching BoomerCons is highly entertaining, but hardly anything is done just for the lulz. Now, whether there are people out there who sincerely support white Sharia is of no consequence. People support all sorts of stupid ideas, as the success of Scientology will attest. Read more …

Perused with Pleasure in 2018
My Top 5 Books

1,530 words

I was using my Spectator-co-uk digital subscription to search for odds and ends in its wonky archive. What, I wondered, did the Speccy have to say about the Angry Young Men in the late 1950s? Better yet, what did they have on Colin Wilson and his friend, the ever-elusive Bill Hopkins?

Not an awful lot, as it turns out. Read more …

Against Escapism

1,511 words

Escapism is one of the major issues plaguing young white men. Virtually all of them are gamers of some sort. If not a gamer, he typically immerses himself in board games, or else fantasy and science fiction novels and television series. The more disciplined and intelligent among us might use this as a springboard toward developing some useful skills. Read more …

Five Books that Shook My World (2018)

547 words

1. Camille Paglia, Provocations: Collected Essays on Art, Feminism, Politics, Sex, and Education (New York: Pantheon, 2018).

Paglia is self-recommending, of course. I was a bit let down, as the subtitle seemed to promise a career-wide retrospective, while this is more like a reunion tour, with emphasis on more recent works. The key essays are a vast survey, “Cults and Cosmic Consciousness: Religious Vision in the American 1960s,” a liberal education in itself; Read more …

My Favorite Books of 2018

912 words

I have read about 40 books in 2018 (so far). These are my five favorites. (Modesty requires that I exclude my own books and other Counter-Currents titles.)

1. Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin, National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy (New York: Pelican, 2018).

As I mentioned in my “Toward a New Nationalism” essay, Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin’s National Populism is a very exciting book. Read more …

Christmas at Counter-Currents
Some Thoughts on Yule

3,342 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …

Very few suspect that the holidays [i.e., Catholic holy days] of today, in the century of skyscrapers, radio, great movements of the masses, are celebrated and continue . . . a remote tradition, Read more …

Remembering Filippo Marinetti:
December 22, 1876–December 2, 1944

Marinetti in the First World War.

173 words

Those on the Right who believe that modern art is always “decadent” need to come to grips with Italian Futurism. In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, the founder of Italian Futurism and one of the prophets of Fascism, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this Website.

1. Marinetti’s own “Futurist Manifesto” of 1909.

2. Kerry Bolton’s essay “Filippo Marinetti,” which has also been published in his book Artists of the Right: Resisting Decadence. (Portuguese translation here.)

Translator’s Note: The following is a translation from the concluding chapter of Jean-Marie Le Pen’s Mémoires: Fils de la nation (Paris: Muller, 2018), pp. 389-391. The title is editorial.
