Now I Hate Victor Hugo

5,717 words

In which Nicholas R. Jeelvy demonstrates the insidiousness of 19th-century political leftism and its tendency to subvert culture and morality by tugging on the heartstrings of the impressionable and kind.

My own personal journey through Victor Hugo’s epic began at a very young age. Read more …

Lament for a Nation:
A Retrospective

2,732 words

George Grant
Lament for a Nation: The Defeat of Canadian Nationalism
Montreal: McGill-Queens University Press, 2005

One of the oddities we find in the history of political philosophy is that the foundational text of Canadian nationalism is a work lamenting the end of Canada. The 1965 work of philosopher and theologian George Grant, Lament for a Nation: The Defeat of Canadian Nationalism, set off a wave of nationalism throughout the country. Read more …

The Adults Left the Room a Long Time Ago:
The Transsexual Issue

1,711 words

A week ago, I flew from my West Coast abode to a gym equipment and fitness symposium in Washington, DC. My lodging was provided by my older half-brother, who is raising a batch of teenage girls attending high school in northern Virginia’s expensive ‘burbs. After dinner, in his study, he explained that he was starting to become aware of transsexuals. In the current high school social scene, there are a great many. Read more …

“How Did Anyone Even Notice Me?”

Jonathan Weisman
(((Semitism))): Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump
New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2018

One finds a dilemma within White Nationalist criticism of Jewish literature: how to reconcile Jewish hysteria concerning imminent pogroms whenever a Jew isn’t treated with reverence with the actual White Nationalist goal of a society non-violently freed of Jews and Jewish influence. Read more …

The Importance of the Covington Kids

Celeste Barber recites the Pledge of Allegiance in tears after being heckled at a meeting where Santa Barbara Community College banned the Pledge for its “white nationalism.”

1,524 words

The most threatening thing a white person can do is smirk at a non-white. That was the gist of the controversy that erupted over a group of schoolboys from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky not showing proper deference to a drum-banging Indian on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial last week.

An Alternative Kind of Deplatforming

Naomi Wu

1,082 words

Recently, Naomi Wu’s story was brought to my attention on Twitter by Hank Oslo of the Myth of the 20th Century podcast. Naomi Wu is a tech adept from the People’s Republic of China (PRC), living in Shenzhen. She does a bit of coding, but mainly focuses on building gadgetry, and she has invented things such as LED display hats that project images over your face to help circumvent the face detection software that has become ubiquitous in the urbanized parts of the rather autocratic PRC.

Cioran, Germany, & Hitler

1,761 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: The following are excerpts from the preface to a collection of early articles by Emil Cioran translated from Romanian into French. I found this very interesting concerning the young Cioran’s embrace of fascism as embodying the “barbarism” he considered necessary to halt decadence. I have broken up some of the paragraphs.

Postmodernism on the Right:
A Case for Adopting Deconstructing as a Tool

Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfurt School speaking to student protesters in Berlin in 1967.

4,918 words

One of the realities that must be recognized by the Dissident Right, particularly in the Anglophone world, is that that those modes of thought and analysis broadly encapsulated by terms like postmodernism, critical theory, or the Frankfurt School are not inherently “Left-wing.” Collectively and individually, they are not inherently anything other than a means to an end.

Bird Box (2018)
Directed by Susanne Bier
Starring Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, & John Malkovich

Netflix’s 2018 movie Bird Box is a hit. The movie has had more than forty million viewers in its first weeks, and its images have led to a host of Internet memes from clever keyboard jokers. The movie is a standard apocalypse film – man versus the supernatural – but there are some twists. Read more …

This Little Piggy Saves None

James Brown’s 1990 mug shot.

2,591 words

I tell you, it hit me like a lead hammer. Knocked the wind right out of me. I sure wasn’t expecting that when I went to Facebook the day after Martin Luther King Day I’d find that several of my friends had posted laudatory bits in tribute to the serial plagiarizing, serial fornicating commie. I can’t get over it. I’m totally bummed out.

The State of European Populism

Viktor Orbán & Matteo Salvini

3,863 words

Since the American Alt Right fell apart, many commentators and outlets which formerly identified as “Alt Right” have started pointing towards European populism as an example to follow, and are often heard to say that the nationalist cause is much further ahead in Europe. As a European, I would like to comment on this, based on the Dutch populist movement, which is relatively strong for a Western European country. Read more …

Russia: An Exemplar of Christian Nationalism?

Volunteers from the Young Medics of Russia organization make a red ribbon as part of the worldwide campaign against AIDS in Rostov-on-Don.

1,391 words

Many on the Right seem to think that Christian nationalism is the path forward for our movement. They look to Hungary, Poland, and Russia as evidence that putting Christian identity at the forefront of our cause is the best way to attract the masses and restore white civilization to its rightful glory.

The Social Justice Warrior as Nascent Totalitarian

632 words

Memetic discourse is historically unique, but there is a striking similarity between Social Justice Warrior (SJW) discourse and the totalitarian discourse of past eras. Political rhetoric in totalitarian societies is narrow and circular; everything that is said is just a reiteration of what’s already been said. Any original or nuanced thought in a totalitarian society is crushed or weeded out. Read more …

An Update on Francis Parker Yockey’s The World in Flames & Call for Der Weg

289 words

We’d like to offer an update on our long-awaited anthology of all of Francis Parker Yockey’s extant shorter writings, many previously unpublished: The World in Flames (click for details). We have come across German versions of some of Yockey’s essays that were published in the Buenos Aires-based journal Der Weg during the 1950s; in some cases, the English originals have been lost. We are looking to see which new essays we can discover and are having them translated back into English for inclusion in this volume. Read more …

The Importance of Believing:
Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather

2,563 words

The late British novelist Terry Pratchett (1948-2015) was mainly known for his Discworld series of comic fantasy novels, of which one of the most popular, Hogfather, was made into a BBC miniseries in 2006. Pratchett was a secular humanist, but did not share the unfortunate belief of some atheists that there is something shameful about faith itself. Instead, with Hogfather, he valorizes the struggle between belief and fantasy – which he casts as necessary parts of being human – and a cold, mechanical, and unimaginative worldview. Read more …

Butchering Cultured Meat

A Perfectly Neutral Auschwitz

I heard the enemy dinner-call. So I walked to UPenn for a talk on Cultured Meat. Having apprenticed in my dad’s butcher shop, I don’t relate to clinically strained beef. I have natural tastes. True flavors.

If, under siege in the Techno-Apocalypse, I was cannibalized by starving pals? The sorry chef would eulogize. Read more …

Houellebecq on Love

552 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: I discovered these reflections nestled between some pornographic scenes in Michel Houellebecq’s recently published novel, Sérotonine (Paris: Flammarion, 2019), pp. 70-72.

It is perhaps necessary at this point to provide a few clarifications on love, largely aimed at women, because women don’t really understand what love is for men. Read more …

Martin Luther King, Establishment Icon

Martin Luther King with Nelson Rockefeller in 1961.

3,603 words

Every year, the third Monday of January is designated Martin Luther King Day, and the much-lauded paragon of “passive resistance” and “equality” is praised to high heaven with the aura of sainthood, or even godhood, perhaps only equalled by his South African counterpart, Nelson Mandela. I will not argue here whether desegregation has improved anyone’s lot, blacks included, any more than the dismantling of apartheid did, other than its having intended to create an “inclusive economy,” as the Rockefeller Foundation and others call it, and an expanded consumption market.

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King marching with Rabbi Abraham Heschel at a Vietnam War protest in Washington, DC in 1968.

3,287 words

There are few displays of ethnomasochism and xenophilia more perverse than that of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – a day in January when white and black alike are meant to remember this hero of the Civil Rights era and to reflect on how far we have come as a country. MLK Day is an odd holiday to me, since it is as if the Byzantines had set aside a day to celebrate the heroism of Mehmed II, or some other Ottoman Sultan. Perhaps this analogy gives Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) far too much credit. Read more …

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Resources at Counter-Currents

793 words

In recent decades, Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) has become a symbol of the possibility of racial egalitarianism and the supposed victory of progressivism throughout the Western world. His birthday, January 15, which is commemorated on the third Monday of each January, has been designated as a federal holiday by the United States government since 1986 (although it was not celebrated in all fifty states until 2000).
