A Star Is Born

1,200 words

I could have happily lived the rest of my life without seeing any of the now four versions of A Star Is Born (1937, 1954, 1976, 2018). But on a long flight, I decided on a whim to watch the latest version, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. I like Bradley Cooper as an actor, and this is also his directorial debut. I was also curious about Lady Gaga, whom I had never actually heard. (Can I refer to her as “Gaga” for short?) Read more …

Knut Hamsun Against the Socialists

Knut Hamsun in 1930

1,673 words

Translated by Haldora Flank

Translator’s Preface

This letter by the famous Norwegian author and man of the Right Knut Hamsun appeared in the magazine Ragnarok in March 1939. Ragnarok, which Hamsun himself read, was a Norwegian National Socialist monthly that was published between 1934 and 1945. The letter itself, however, had originally been written in 1916 as a reply to Eugéne Olaussen (1887-1962). At the time, Olaussen was the Editor-in-Chief of Klassekampen (Class Struggle), a Norwegian Leftist newspaper that was published from 1909 until 1940, and which at the time was being published by the Norwegian Social Democratic Youth League, the youth wing of the Norwegian Labor Party. Olaussen had requested a contribution from Hamsun, and this letter was his answer. Read more …

Wilmot Robertson on Conservatism

1,772 words

“The Old Believer, who is the quintessential modern conservative because he is the quintessential classical liberal, is probably the most effective of all Americans in keeping the Majority in the deep freeze of racial apathy.” – Wilmot Robertson, The Dispossessed Majority

The High Holy Month of Pride

The US embassy in Seoul, South Korea earlier this month.

1,398 words

You’re probably all too aware that June is Pride Month.

Everywhere you go, every time you log into social media, and certainly any time you watch TV, you’re browbeaten to celebrate Pride Month. Rainbow flags adorn bars, hotels, and government buildings. The flag may even adorn the products you buy at the store. Every corporate entity makes sure to wish its customers a happy Pride Month. Read more …

The Hidden Meaning of Resident Evil 4

6,031 words

Famously based on zombie horror films, the Resident Evil video games have sold millions of copies each over the past two decades, and spawned a (terrible) film franchise to boot. As such, they’re an important cultural touchstone to a large segment of the gaming public, many of whom are young white men. The Japanese title Biohazard better communicates its central premise: A virus engineered by a multinational pharmaceutical company causes a pandemic resulting in the zombie apocalypse.

Dean Meredith Raimondo’s Reading List

Dean Meredith Raimondo

1,806 words

It has been quite a week on the legal front for the Dissident Right. In probably the most important legal defeat to date for the radical Left, an Ohio jury has awarded $44 million in compensatory and punitive damages (and legal fees which could add another thirty percent to the $44 million) to the owners of Gibson’s Bakery in their libel lawsuit against Oberlin College and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo. To make matters even sweeter for the bakery (pun intended), it appears that Oberlin’s insurer has already taken legal steps to ensure that the money will not be paid from the college’s general liability policy.

Coal Burning Point USA:
The Fast Times & Short Career of Ashley St. Clair

2,829 words

Everyone loves a good social media implosion.

A good implosion is, among other things, a comeuppance: one where the mask falls at last and a hotsy totsy e-celeb is exposed to be every bit the no-good son of a bitch that you always kinda knew he was, but now everyone knows. His status as a no-good son-of-a-bitch becomes a matter of public record and public knowledge. Read more …

Middle America Discovers It’s Been Had

The Tillman Story (2010)
Directed by Amir Bar-Lev

Pat Tillman of the 75th Ranger Regiment was killed in action on April 22, 2004 in Afghanistan. In the grand scheme of things, Tillman’s death was not all that remarkable. America was engaged in two wars at the time, and soldiers, especially those in especially dangerous jobs like the Combat Engineers or the Rangers, were being killed every day. Read more …

Woke Capital’s Free Option

Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube, a definite woke capitalist.

1,585 words

As many of you already know, YouTube has recently embarked on a campaign to purge dissident voices from its platform. As expected, the Dissident Right was the hardest hit, with such luminaries as Dr. Patrick Slattery and my fellow contributor here at Counter-Currents, Jared George, losing their channels outright. Many others have had their videos removed or demonetized. It’s all anyone’s been able to talk about on YouTube, and it is a cause for concern. YouTube gives our movement a link directly to Generation Z’s hindbrain. Read more …

Spengler on Unfruitfulness

754 words

Perhaps Oswald Spengler’s greatest contribution to the philosophy of history is his removal of history from the mechanistic realm of cause and effect and placing it instead within the sphere of biology. Human societies are, after all, composed of living human beings, and so it is only logical that cultures and civilizations are themselves subject to biological, rather than mechanical, laws.

Orwell, Molotov, & the “Crisis of Capitalism”

O’Brien (Richard Burton) demonstrates that 2 + 2 doesn’t always equal 4.

2,306 words

Did the international crises of 1947 and 1948 leave their mark on the writing of Nineteen Eighty-Four? I’ve spent a lot of time on this question, and so far as I can tell, the answer is – yes; but only obliquely. And George Orwell may not even have been conscious of the fact.

Feminism, End & Beginning

614 words

It is superficial thought that causes some to call themselves feminist or anti-feminist. The usual definitions of feminism, from womyn’s empowerment to sexual egalitarianism, serve to curtail thought – therefore we shall not define feminism here. Instead, we will look at synchronicities, to help us better understand our time and place.

Hungary: Illiberal Democracy in Action

6,981 words

The following is the text of the talk that Counter-Currents editor John Morgan delivered at the American Renaissance conference on May 18, 2019. It is reprinted from the American Renaissance site. The video is included as well.

It’s great to be back here. It’s the first time I’ve been at AmRen since 2014, and of course the world has changed a lot since then. This is why I think it’s timely that I talk about what’s happening in Hungary today, since I spoke about that in 2014 as well, but at that time, Europe’s migrant crisis was nothing more than a twinkle in George Soros’ eye.

Happy Birthday to Us!

1,175 words

It was nine years ago today that the Counter-Currents website went online. I can’t count the number of writers, YouTubers, podcasters, websites, and entire movements that have come and gone in our ideological sphere in the last nine years. The attrition is understandable. Deplatforming, demonetization, and demoralization take their toll. But Counter-Currents is still here, and we are not going anywhere.

In Year Nine, we published online 791 articles and reviews and more than 6,000 comments. Read more …

The Greatest Anti-Immigration Film of All Time: Brightburn

1,024 words

The best propaganda approaches its subject in an oblique manner. The most effective way to present a message is to insinuate it within the context of a seemingly unrelated narrative. This is a common practice of the Left, and is one that is seldom used by the Right; or when it is used, is generally done so in a clumsy and/or laughable manner. Think Dinesh D’Souza or the Left Behind movies which are so beloved by fundamentalists. Read more …
