Nineteen Eighty-Four Revisited,
Part I: What Orwell Can Still Teach Us

6,674 words

Part 1 of 4

1. Introduction

Everyone thinks he knows what’s in Nineteen Eighty-Four. Is there really anything left to say? It’s as if George Orwell’s masterpiece has been sucked dry. At least, that’s what I thought until I recently reread it, for the first time in over thirty years. Read more …

In the Court of the Crimson King

1,953 words

Nearly two decades into the twenty-first century, it’s safe to say we’ve all grown a little schizoid.

Released in October of 1969, English progressive rock outfit King Crimson’s In the Court of the Crimson King was – and is – a debut that permanently altered the face of pop music. Read more …

Alexandra Minna Stern
Proud Boys and the White Ethnostate: How the Alt-Right is Warping the American Imagination
New York: Beacon Press, 2019

Can We Have Our Own BDS?

1,584 words

The Sopranos, Part II

3,518 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

The first two seasons each have two arch-villains: one from the underground, another from the government. In the first season, Tony’s position is threatened by Uncle Junior and by Jimmy Altieri, who turns informant for the federal government. In the second season, the danger escalates on the government front as the primary threat comes from the subversive and patient Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero, Read more …

The Scandza Forum on National Populism:
Copenhagen, October 12

927 words

On October 12, 2019, the Scandza Forum is returning to the Danish capital after our successful event there in September 2018. As usual, we give you an all-star line-up of speakers:

Rasmus Paludan, a criminal defense attorney, is the leader of the Danish political party Stram Kurs (Hard Line), which proposes ethnonationalistic utilitarianism as its philosophical base and Danish identitarianism and libertarianism as its two political pillars. Read more …

The Sopranos, Part I

2,513 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

It’s been twenty years since it premiered, and twelve since it concluded, so we can now claim with a dose of certainty that we have a historical perspective on it. Yes, folks, I’m talking about The Sopranos, David Chase’s crime drama that redefined modern television. Ditching the episodic format for season-long sagas while still presenting slice-of-life vignettes centered around Tony Soprano, The Sopranos made such hits as Breaking Bad, The Shield, and The Wire possible.

On the Ruin & Conquest of Britain, Part 2

1,961 words

Part 2 of 3 (Part 1 here)

“I pondered all these things, and how men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and when it comes turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name.”

— William Morris, A Dream of John Ball, about the very first English Peasants’ Revolt against an alien elite

Yet More Oppression Porn:
The Handmaid’s Tale, Season Three

1,325 words

The third season of The Handmaid’s Tale is well-crafted in almost every way. The cinematography is outstanding. The dialogue is good. The acting is excellent. Its fictional universe is interesting, and it has a dark, dystopian beauty to it. However, the season doesn’t hang together. I got quite bored with it and stopped watching after getting enough information to scrape together a review. (I know what happens in the rest because I cheated and read the plot summaries after watching two-thirds of the season.)

Charles de Gaulle, Algeria, & the JQ

2,957 words

Today I wish to talk about Charles de Gaulle and some seldom-examined aspects of the Algerian Crisis that spanned 1954 to 1962. But in order to edge into all that, I first have to talk about one of my favorite and oft-viewed movies, The Day of the Jackal (1973; the original version).

De Gaulle himself is a character in that film, since the whole plot revolves around assassination attempts on him in the early 1960s. Read more …

“Matryona’s House”:
Solzhenitsyn’s Love Letter to the Russian People

1,759 words

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn seemed to write novels like a historian. It’s as if he didn’t always know which details were more important than others, and so erred on the side of quantity rather than quality. Not that his novels don’t contain great stuff – rather, they tend to lead the reader through long and uneven passages in between the moments of greatness. Read more …

Blue Velvet: The Lost Footage

1,580 words

The Criterion Collection’s new Blu-ray of Blue Velvet contains 53 minutes of lost footage. Does this footage in any way alter my reading of the film’s psychological and political meaning? The short answer is no, but read on.

Blue Velvet was released as a two-hour film, but originally it was about two hours and fifty minutes long. The material Lynch removed is not raw footage that was never part of the film. Read more …

Part 3 of 5 (Part 1 here, Part 2 here, Part 4 here)

JM: It’s only recently, because of mass transportation, that we’ve had so many non-whites moving in, yet it’s an unheard of idea to say we don’t like that.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

1,608 words

Unlike Inglorious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012), which were both drenched in violence against whites, Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, is a surprisingly wholesome and pro-white film that pays homage to old Hollywood and white male movie stardom.

The main characters are washed-up actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double and driver, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Read more …

Midsommar

After a summer hiatus, John Morgan and Survive the Jive join Fróði Midjord on the latest Guide to Kulchur to discuss Midsommar, a recently-released movie about a group of American anthropology students and a deeply traumatized woman who visit a neo-pagan cult practicing a faith based on the ancient Nordic religion in present-day Hälsingland, Sweden, where they discover that the cult’s interest in them goes far beyond the merely academic.

Part 2 of 5 (Part 1 here, Part 3 here)

JM: That brings me to another question. As you were saying, having a culture and civilization, I would argue, that is one of the better ones in the world, leads to the claim of “white supremacy” being flung around. Read more …

Meme War II: European Vacation

5,407 words

What to do about Tommy Robinson has long been a moral quandary for the Dissident Right. The purist position was, “No, the guy is a narcissist conman controlled by Zionist Jews” – which no one on our side really disputes.

Conservatives Show Their True, Pathetic Colors After El Paso

George P. Bush thinks that war needs to be declared on White Nationalism.

1,472 words

“Crush White Nationalist evil!” is the conservative answer to the El Paso shooting.

The overwhelming majority of conservatives have called for the government to treat White Nationalism like Islamic terror. Logically, this would mean drone strikes against American Renaissance conferences. But the conservatives who advocate for this drastic action are self-aware enough not to go that far – they just want the government to censor speech they call racist.

The Hidden Meaning of Shadow of the Colossus & ICO

5,975 words

Shadow of the Colossus is an artistic and technical triumph that looms large on lists of top video games, with an average score of ninety-one percent on review aggregator Metacritic. It is rightly considered a masterpiece. Originally released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2, it was reissued in high definition on Playstation 3, and got a full makeover on Playstation 4 last year. Several games have paid homage to its designs, and it has been optioned for a film adaptation.[1]

Defaming Unity Mitford

1,699 words

Unity Valkyrie Mitford was born on August 8, 1914 and died of the aftereffects of a head wound on May 28, 1948. One of six sisters from a landed, aristocratic English family, she became fascinated by the National Socialist movement in Germany while still in her teens. At 20, in Munich, she met Adolf Hitler. At 25, she was plunged into such despair by the outbreak of war between England and Germany that she shot herself with a pistol, in a Munich park. She returned to England, via neutral Switzerland, on a stretcher.

Remembering Unity Valkyrie Mitford:
August 8, 1914–May 28, 1948

Unity_Mitford642 words

Unity Valkyrie Mitford was born on this day in 1914. Unity was easily the most notorious of the Mitford girls, the six daughters of David Freeman-Mitford, 2nd Baron Redesdale and his wife Sydney (née Bowles).

Diana Mitford became the wife of Sir Oswald Mosley. Unity became Hitler’s confidante. Jessica became a Communist journalist. Nancy became a novelist and biographer. Deborah, who is still alive at 94, became the Duchess of Devonshire. Read more …
