Tolkien, A Review

1,206 words

One of the advantages of reading biographies is that even if they’re not very good, there remains the consolation of having learned something. Sadly, this is one of the few positive things that can be said about the recent biopic Tolkien.

Biographies can be tricky to adapt for the screen. Filmmakers will want to adhere to the truth as much as possible while still being able to tell a coherent and thematic story. How much artistic license is too much? Read more …

TERFs & Transsexual Men

2,539 words

TERF is an acronym for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” It is also a slur. Unlike most political slurs, it is an accurate description of the people that the acronym describes.

TERF names the subset of radical feminists that opposes the inclusion of transsexual men (aka “transwomen”) in the category “woman.” Some radical feminists welcome men who believe they are women, and many others do not. TERF names the latter and contrasts them to the former. Read more …

Zen & Martial Arts

Taisen Deshimaru

3,080 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: The following extracts are drawn from Taisen Deshimaru, Zen et Arts martiaux (Paris: Albin Michel, 1983 [1977]). The style reflects the rambling, spontaneous speaking of many Zen masters, whose “writings” are often not of their own initiative, but rather sayings recorded by their pious (often Western) followers. Another example of this would be Shunryū Suzuki, who was popular in California. This does raise the question of how “Taisen Deshimaru” authored the books ascribed to him. Read more …

Bret Easton Ellis’ White

2,103 words

Bret Easton Ellis
White
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2019

When you see Bret Easton Ellis emerge as a Generation X elder, you know you’ve moved pretty far along the abattoir ramp. Technically he’s not Gen X at all, as he was born in 1964, but Simon & Schuster brought out his first novel (Less Than Zero) when he was still an undergraduate at Bennington, and Ellis’ precocity was part of the sales pitch.

Us & Them

2,128 words

Social Justice Wars in Video Games:
A Review of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption

2,450 words

Last summer, Transolar Games released Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption, a role-playing adventure game which the creators characterized as the “spiritual successor to our Quest for Glory series.” The title stands as an interesting study of how far video game developers are now under the spell of social justice in terms of issues such as race and gender, and to what degree they can still express independent thoughts.

Breaking the Tyrant Spell:
An Interview with Darkest Sky

1,615 words

I believe there is a certain inertia to political ideas. As in Newtonian laws of motion, it takes force to get ideas going, and once an idea is in motion, it takes even more force to stop their momentum. In order to generate enough force to overcome the inertia in our ideas and to get society to start adopting them, I believe in a multi-pronged approach: one that speaks to all levels, classes, and interests of society.

And Then They Came for Ricardo Duchesne

3,102 words

Several years ago, I published a mammoth review essay on Ricardo Duchesne’s The Uniqueness of Western Civilization. I regard it as one of the most interesting and important books I have ever read. Duchesne is a valiant defender of Western civilization against the madness of politically correct academics – and now, it seems, he may be paying the price. Read more …

Remembering Oswald Spengler:
May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936

553 words

Oswald Spengler was born on this day in 1880. For his contributions to the philosophy of history and culture, Spengler is one of the most important philosophical influences on the North American New Right, largely by way of his disciple Francis Parker Yockey. Spengler is often wrong, but even when he errs, he does so magnificently.

Work Stinks

1,720 words

There are several boomer-tier jokes going around the internet, and most of them predate it, about voter turnout at different times of day in the US. Something about Democrats getting an early lead but then losing it when Republicans get off from work and vote. It’s supposed to be a dig at Democrats for being unemployed, welfare leeches, or working for the government. It’s a clever dig if you value working, which I suppose a part of the population should. But here at Counter-Currents, we value honesty and truth, no matter how ugly, and we take a massive sledgehammer to pretty lies, no matter how useful. Read more …

Rune Scrape

1,362 words

Sweden may ban the runes to curb racism.

Justice Minister Morgan Johansson is investigating the proposal to see if the ban would stifle “incitement of ethnic hatred.” Along with the runes, several other Norse pagan symbols could be banned under the proposal, such as Mjolnir (Thor’s Hammer) and the Valknut. The move is clearly directed at the Nordic Resistance Movement, which uses a tiwaz rune as its logo, and other White Nationalists. Read more …

Helgi: The Return of the Dead
An Esoteric Commentary on the Volsung Saga, Part IX

Ernest Wallcousins, Helgi Returns to Valhalla

5,344 words

Part I here, Part VIII here, Part X here

In our last installment, we explored the career of the legendary Norse hero Helgi. Chapter Nine of the Volsung Saga is devoted to Helgi, and it constitutes a rich and entertaining digression from the main story. At one time, Helgi must have been a very important hero. The anonymous author of the Volsung Saga draws on two poems concerning Helgi compiled in the Poetic Edda: Helgakvitha Hundingsbana I (The First Poem of Helgi, Killer of Hunding; henceforth HH I), and Helgakvitha Hundingsbana II (or HH II).

How a Pennsylvania Race War Gave Birth to White America

1,540 words

Peter Silver
Our Savage Neighbors: How Indian War Transformed Early America
New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2008

The colony of Pennsylvania was unique. In was developed as a socio-religious scheme by a British Lord named William Penn to provide a place of religious toleration for all comers, run by Quakers. On the surface, a society founded on religious liberty will lead to social peace. But it did not. Read more …

Remembering Louis-Ferdinand Céline:
May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961

198 words

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist.

It’s a curious phenomenon that we should hate our neighbors more than we hate a visitor. But it’s the way things are. Familiarity breeds contempt, after all. We can fight with a sibling in a way we can’t with a visitor, and yet, we can also make up with a sibling in a way we can’t with a visitor. Read more …

Five Concepts from Chateau Heartiste

712 words

Like everyone, I held my breath almost every time I checked in on the website Chateau Heartiste. It seemed destined to be shut down in the present hostile climate. It was too spicey, too radical, too honest.

Then, on Friday, May 10, as I did my usual cruise around the internet, I summoned it from my bookmarks and was met with a blunt cancellation notice. This hit me harder than other recent shutdowns. Read more …

Remembering Richard Wagner:
May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883

444 words

Richard Wagner was born 206 years ago today in Leipzig in the Kingdom of Saxony. He died on February 13, 1883 in Venice. As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right. I wish to draw your attention to the following writings which have been published at Counter-Currents/North American New RightRead more …

The Modern Prophecy in the Final Episode of Game of Thrones

2,085 words

The final episode of Game of Thrones had an important message about the nature of modern politics. It was almost surely unintended.

The writing of the final episode, of the final season in general, was atrocious. Balerion the Black Dread could fly through the plot holes showrunners David Beinoff and D.B. Weiss created. Read more …
