Grateful Dead’s Workingman’s Dead

1,674 words

Few recording groups in human history have left behind a wholly worthless legacy. But then there’s the Grateful Dead, who are remarkable for their ability to poison an entire music scene with their catalog of half-baked, consumerizing, milquetoast wannabe-radical jam band masturbation — and then get praised by music journalists from 1960 to 2020.

Richard Jewell

1,467 words

2019 was the year of the “frustrated-white-loser-living-at-home-with-his-mom” movie. First there was Todd Phillips’ Joker, an origin story of Batman’s most memorable nemesis, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the clown himself. Then came Clint Eastwood’s Richard Jewell, the true story of a Georgia security guard who discovered the Centennial Olympic Park bomb in 1996.

The Extended Immune System

1,094 words

Consider the human immune system — not from an academic or scientific standpoint, but from a very practical and goal-oriented point of view; the goal in question being the continued health of the human. The body seals itself off from the outside world with a strong wall, known as the skin, and only communicates with it through highly specialized ports — the bodily orifices. Read more …

Make America Ethnic Again

2,303 wordsLittle Italy neighborhood of New York City.

I attended a small (about 160 students per grade) Midwestern high school only ten minutes from a metropolis, but the neighborhood had large houses with high property taxes and the district had gerrymandered the auto-enrollment zone to keep the school about 90 percent white with a smattering of Asians (several boys named Tenzin).

The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project is the future of American education.

Buffalo Public Schools announced this month that the essay series will now be mandatory for its students and other school districts are soon to follow.

Monarchs & Mountebanks

895 wordsEnglish revolutionary Oliver Cromwell.

I thought things could not get worse for the Royal Family after the future King Charles the 3rd was caught out claiming he wanted to be his aging mistress’s female sanitary product while his own wife was cuckolding him with a string of Muslim and Arabic men in hotel rooms all over London and Western Europe. That scandal mercifully ended on the night of 31st August, 1997, in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris.

But of course, I was wrong. Read more …

In Defense of Mishima

2,780 words

I have read Andrew Joyce’s article “Against Mishima” at The Occidental Observer with great interest and mixed feelings. I admire Dr. Joyce’s writings on the Jewish question, but to be candid, his critique of Mishima is on the whole tendentious and shallow. It is also overly emphatic on some topics while neglecting or downplaying other equally, if not more, important ones. Read more …

How Did We Get Here?

Pieter Bruegel the Elder's painting Hunters in the Snow.

The Hunters in the Snow. Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1565.

I remember December 31, 2009 like it was yesterday. I was driving back home from work, reflecting on my life during the last ten years. I also wondered just how the 2000s would be defined or characterized as a decade. The first thoughts that came to mind about the 2000s were the ongoing wars in the Middle East after 9/11, the US election of a black president, and the increasing importance of cell phones and the internet in our daily lives.

Warhammer 40,000

2,663 words

“In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is only WAR . . .” tells us the strap line of the world’s most popular miniature wargame. In the 41st Millennium, mankind has collapsed after a Dark Age of Technology and an Age of Strife, and is set upon by nefarious, merciless alien races. Humanity is struggling against a primordial force of the universe — Chaos — that corrupts and deforms men into inhuman monsters.

Frank Zappa’s Hot Rats

1,224 wordsCover of the Frank Zappa album Hot Rats.

One of the first albums to be recorded on 16-track tape, Hot Rats spawned a jazz standard, a sprawling meditation on prostitution, and some of Captain Beefheart’s best vocal work outside of Trout Mask Replica. It’s mostly instrumental, but does not lack any substance, and the sounds it contains are both timeless and reflective of the late 1960s. Read more …

Our Votes Don’t Matter, But Our Ideas Do

Normal Rockwell Undecided1,542 words

How should White Nationalists take part in American electoral politics?

In the long run, we want our ideas to be hegemonic, the common sense of the whole political system, upheld by all the political parties. We want white interests to be as sacrosanct as anti-racism, diversity, and globalization are to the major parties today. When all parties work to secure our interests, it doesn’t matter who wins elections, because whites can’t lose. Read more …

Netflix’s (and Israel’s) The Spy

3,142 words

Poster for Netflix's The Spy.If the title of this review surprises you, it shouldn’t. Do not be disillusioned — this multi-part spy saga is transparent propaganda, promoted (if not partly financed, I suspect) by Israel. It’s as Kosher as Rosenfeld’s bagels.

But first, the story. It concerns a Sephardic Jewish man, Eli Cohen, born in Alexandria, Egypt. By posing as an importer of Argentinian products into Syria, he manages to ingratiate himself into Syrian political society. Using the name Kamel Thaabet, he befriends members of the Ba’ath political party, including Colonel Amin al-Hafez who would later become Syria’s president Read more …

Ad Astra

1,564 words

Ad Astra (2019), starring Brad Pitt and directed by James Gray, is the best science fiction movie since Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (2014). Like Interstellar, Ad Astra is visually striking and emotionally powerful, stimulating to both thought and imagination, and unfolds at a leisurely pace—all traits inviting comparisons to Kubrick and Tarkovsky, although I hasten to add that I found both Ad Astra and Interstellar so absorbing that my attention never wavered.

Someone take these dreams away

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me

And mocking voices ring the halls

Poppy’s I Disagree

1,973 wordsCover of Poppy's album, I Disagree.

Poppy, the mildly unsettling YouTube sensation-turned-bestselling pop singer, released her newest album on January 10th. It’s called I Disagree, and it’s an apt title — much of this record is a violent, abrasive eschewing of both Poppy’s previous work and the rules that govern music in general, much like the hyperpop sensibilities of breakthrough act 100 Gecs or veterans of the deconstruction genre like Grimes, Read more …

Pinocchio: The Face of Fascism

4,065 words

Extraordinary! There are three—maybe four—Pinocchio films now in development or newly released. They all promise to reveal dark, hitherto unexplored aspects of the famous marionette’s saga. One is a Robert Downey Jr. project that’s been hemming and hawing since about 2012. Initially Downey was planning to play both Geppetto and the title role. Now he’s older, so he’ll just play Geppetto. A new live-action Pinocchio premiered last month in Italy. Read more …

Lothrop Stoddard:
A Prophet We Should Study

2,207 words

We can’t say we weren’t warned. Around the time of the First World War, when Europe ruled nearly every part of the Earth, Theodore Lothrop Stoddard wrote a series of highly regarded books and articles about the global racial situation that argued European global rule was coming unglued. Stoddard, a Harvard-educated scholar, was also pro-white figure; he was consequently memory-holed by the establishment after World War II and his death in 1950. It’s precisely because of this we need to continue listening to his words.

Fear & Gunowning in Richmond Virginia

1,345 words

Thousands of gun owners rallied in Richmond, Virginia on Martin Luther King Day to protest the state’s new gun laws.

This rally was one of the largest right-wing demonstrations in recent memory and effectively communicated citizen dissent against gun control. Nothing violent happened, bad optics were at a minimum (but goofy optics were aplenty), and conservative media lionized the demonstrators. Liberal journalists embarrassed themselves with their desire to portray the protests as a neo-Nazi revolt. Read more …
