No Malarkey:
The Formalist Case for Biden

2,338 words

He sat alone on a giant throne
Pretending he’s the king.
A little tyke who’s rather like
A puppet on a string.

— “The Phoney King of England”

Long before anyone thought to call him a neoreactionary, mostly because he himself said it’d be the term a Harvard progressive would use to describe him, Mencius Moldbug called himself a formalist. Read more …

Now Let Us Praise Great Jewish Violinists

Itzhak Perlman

2,223 words

Nothing can divide white people more than the presence of non-whites: blacks and Jews, especially. It seems that whites just can’t agree on what to do with them — other than to fight over them. One side will identify with the non-whites’ supposed outsider status and remain in thrall of their charms and talents. The other side will, well, see them for what they are.

I was reminded of this state of affairs regarding Jews when reading another brief essay by Kim du Toit. Read more …

Part One: The Personal

5,223 words

Sir Roger Scruton, who died of cancer on January 12th, 2020 at the age of seventy-five, wrote more than fifty books, was the editor of the conservative publication The Salisbury Review, and in his final years was briefly chairman — dismissed and subsequently reinstated — of the Conservative Government’s “Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission.”

Kevin MacDonald’s Individualism & the Western Liberal Tradition:
Hail the Catholic Church!

1,658 words

Since the beginning of his academic career in the early 1980s, Kevin MacDonald has been wondering why only in the West “wealthy, powerful men” have not sought “to control ever-larger numbers of women”. Evolutionary biology teaches that male reproductive success benefits greatly from the acquisition of multiple mates. In all societies, except those in which harsh ecological conditions limit the amount of surplus the society can generate, “it is expected that males with wealth and power” will employ their surpluses to “secure as many mates as possible.” This is Evolutionary Biology 101.

The Plot Against America First
Part Four: HBO’s The Plot Against America

5,005 words

Now that we have vindicated Lindbergh and America First, we may now turn to The Plot Against America, HBO’s latest anti-white propaganda production.

For much of the past decade, HBO was headed by the Jewish Richard Plepler, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. WarnerMedia Entertainment, HBO’s parent, is run by Robert Greenblatt, a sodomite who has referred to President Trump as “toxic” and “demented.” WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey is also Jewish; Stankey also serves as the President and COO of AT&T, the parent of WarnerMedia.

Remembering Thomas Nelson Page
(April 23, 1853 — November 1, 1922)

2,365 words

After the Civil War, the American South was in ruins. Beyond the poverty, oppression, and the rapid demise of the old regime, however, the inheritors of the former Confederacy found themselves without defense in the national court of moral opinion. They were a defeated people who had drawn arms against a tolerant and progressive government in order to cling to outmoded ways of life, including (most offensively to some) the ancient practice of slavery.

Those who pined for the South’s days of greatness needed a champion. During the postbellum period, Thomas Nelson Page was one such champion. Read more …

Ecofascism Resurgent

4,631 words

While mankind suffers through the worst global crisis in recent memory, the rest of the world appears to be benefiting from our discomfiture.

The quarantines, travel bans, and economic stagnation brought about by COVID-19 have had a number of unintended consequences for the natural environment: improvements in air quality resulting from the reduction of major pollutants such as nitrous oxide and greenhouse gases; cleaner waterways (most famously the canals of Venice); and the return of wildlife to humanized landscapes.

Earth Day Special

393 words

Today is Earth Day, which has been an occasion to call for conservationism and environmental protection since it was first celebrated in America with bipartisan support in 1970, in response to the Santa Barbara oil spill of 1969. Although in recent decades, environmentalism has come to be identified with the political Left, taking stewardship of the Earth and seeking harmony in the relationship between man and nature has traditionally been an issue of the Right.
