The Will to Politics

2,429 words

The following is a slightly edited transcript of the speech I gave at the Etnofutur III conference in Tallinn, Estonia on February 23, 2019. The video can be seen in this livestream. I want to thank the organizers for inviting me and my supporters for making the trip possible.

What I want to talk to you about today is the one thing that makes a political movement successful, the thing that’s missing when movements fail. Read more …

A Dissident Remembers Jim Croce

Jim Croce

3,062 words

Jim Croce may be one of the most overlooked and underrated singer-songwriters of the rock era. This may be because his ideas often pre-date rock-‘n’-roll, and are in some ways anti-rock for eschewing themes pertaining to youth and rebellion. A cursory look at his best songs reveals that few songwriters are as adept at chronicling experiences which are uniquely and universally masculine. Read more …

Ruuben Kaalep on Ethnostates, Estonian Memory, & Identity

Ruuben Kaalep, the leader of Blue Awakening, the Nationalist Youth Movement in Estonia, explains why countries outside of the Americas are ethnostates by default, as well as the factors in Estonia’s history that have given it a unique ethnic and historical identity worth defending at the Etnofutur III conference in Tallinn, Estonia on February 23, 2019.

In Defense of Gangs

2,241 words

Ever since I was a small child, I was fascinated by organized crime. Sure, what kid hasn’t dreamt of being a robber in the eternal conflict between cops and robbers, but there was a deeper connection there — I marveled at the organized, hierarchical, and methodical ways in which organized crime groups went about committing crime. And what crime at that — Read more …

Amazon.com Bans The White Nationalist Manifesto

1,310 words

On Sunday, February 24th, 2019, Amazon.com — the world’s book marketplace — banned my book The White Nationalist Manifesto.

Amazon did not merely decide to no longer stock the book. They also removed the product listing pages. So it is as if the book never even existed.

Orwell called this the “memory hole.” It is not enough for totalitarians to kill their enemies. They must also be erased from history.  Read more …

On the “Unreflected Substantiality” of the Chinese Mind

7,688 words

As the Chinese “silent invasion” of Australia, New Zealand, and Canada continues, you may want to learn something about the Western academics who lay the intellectual groundwork for this invasion. In a prior article, “The Transcendental Mind of Europeans Stands Above the Embedded Mind of Asians,” we met two influential scholars calling upon whites to abandon their “failed” attempts to formulate transcendental truths for the sake of the more “profound” contextual approach of Chinese philosophers with their demonstration that all thinking is “embedded” to a time and a place.

Age of Cringe:
Alt-Right: Age of Rage

2,003 words

Based on a few clips, I was certain that Alt-Right: Age of Rage (2018) would lead to permanent physical damage from sheer cringiness. But I was delighted to have been proven wrong. This is a remarkably fair-minded documentary. On balance, though, I think it will be good for white identity politics. Age of Rage was directed by Adam Bhala Lough, an American of partial South Asian descent.

Michael Crichton’s State of Fear

Michael Crichton
State of Fear
New York: HarperCollins, 2004

State of Fear is a 2004 techno-thriller by Michael Crichton, who also authored The Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, Prey, Next, and other science fiction and speculative novels. Crichton’s formula was to make heavy use of established science and extrapolate into “What if?” scenarios, constructing fast-paced thriller plots hinging on the scientific fads of the day.

The alleged “hate crime” against black actor Jussie Smollett turned out as we all expected: it was just another hoax.

In the latest installment of Guide to Kulchur, Fróði Midjord and John Morgan discuss Andrei Tarkovsky’s Russian science fiction classic, Stalker, which is about three men living in an industrial wasteland who venture into a Zone that was left on Earth by mysterious extraterrestrials, a wilderness filled with deadly traps, at the center of which is a room that grants the innermost desires of anyone who enters.

American media strategies: the Knavs case

From the very outset, President Trump’s brave attempt at draining the bureaucratic-kleptocratic “Washington swamp” of establishment politics brought out the poisonous snakes of the American mainstream media. Headed by the spin doctors and “fake news” masters of CNN, President Trump has come under sustained attack: vicious attempts at character assassination, with backbiting scandal-mongering and deep-state political intrigue being amplified coast-to-coast, along with round-the-clock journalistic mockery and taunting of the most infantile and malicious kind.
