Why We Need Protectionism

1,152 words

It’s rather funny that the very people who go on about value being subjective act as if a “more productive” economy is objectively more valuable than all possible alternatives. Read more …

Black Lives Matter is a KKK Plot

Imperial Wizard Clayton Bigsby

3,485 words

The Ku Klux Klan created Black Lives Matter, and it’s succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Imperial Wizard Clayton Bigsby explains why and how.

The following is a transcript of a private conversation covertly recorded between Imperial Wizard Clayton Bigsby of the Imperial Klans of America and Kent Wallace, host of Frontline. Read more …

Libertarian Fake Psychology
& Other Thoughts on Recent YouTube Debates

Good and Evil

One of the most popular lines of argument against our recent arguments in defense of paternalism (see here, here and here) goes something like this: “If evil doesn’t meaningfully exist as a choice, then neither does good.”

Where does anyone get off with such nonsense? Read more …

Ten Questions for Jason Kessler

3,667 words

For those who don’t know, how did you end up creating Unite the Right?

It all came as a consequence of an exposé I did on Wes Bellamy, the Charlottesville Vice-Mayor who is pushing to tear down European-American monuments, for “reparations” policies and other anti-white nonsense. Read more …

Bring Back Prohibition!

2,593 words

We all know the story.

Maybe we heard it in our high school history class.

Maybe we went through a libertarian phase where it was repeated ad nauseam as an argument for legalizing marijuana, cocaine, meth, and other hardcore substances—even if you dislike the substances themselves and would rather see them disappear from the face of the Earth.

Maybe we even repeated it ourselves!  Read more …

The Inevitability of Ethnonationalism

1,107 words

Liberals are set on the expectation of a future where race no longer matters.

The worldview of the liberal progressive is one where the world is fundamentally born in “sin” (patriarchy, racism, etc.) but ultimately redeems itself—inevitably, through the laws of progress—and ultimately takes on a form that is in the end radically different from the form it was born in.  Read more …

The Sincerity Assumption

1,181 words

When it comes to politics, there are four categories of people.

1. There are people who agree with your understanding of the facts, and agree with your values, and therefore come to the same political conclusion as you.  Read more …

Starship Troopers Citizenship:
Why Service Should Guarantee Citizenship

2,168 words

We live in a world in which loyalty, as a foundational social ethic, is eroding. Now, the problem isn’t just that particular, local, and naturally “rooted” forms of loyalty are declining. It’s that our entire set of ethical assumptions about how people should view their loyalties to those around them is changing—and the individual’s moral philosophy is changing as a result.

The Moral Poverty of Libertarianism

1,380 words

Murray Rothbard

There’s an old-school form of libertarianism that draws from the work of figures like Ludwig van Beethoven, Selma Hayek, and RuPaul (sorry, I mean to say Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, and Ron Paul). This form of libertarianism works from a reasonably comprehensive picture of what it is to be a human being. Rather than thoroughly replacing homo sapiens with homo economicus, it simply focuses on addressing itself to the economic realm of life; and it proposes that people out to support a strongly libertarian order because such is in their best practical interests.  Read more …

Who’s Doing the Raping?

2,081 words

A meme circulating around social media after the revelations of Harvey Weinstein’s behavior said, “If you’re a man, don’t say anything to a woman that you wouldn’t want a man saying to you in prison.”

For my part, I think there’s value in this way of presenting the idea that most women live in a default state of fear of men in general that influences how particular mens’ actions are perceived. No, this isn’t because all men are dangerous—they aren’t. Read more …

The Chad Virgin vs. the Virgin Chad

2,096 words

Of course, we know why this is the statistic that was spread in the media. Read more …

Become Aedon Cassiel’s Patron at Hatreon

725 words

So it finally started happening . . .

Almost two years ago, I started the Zombie Meditations blog. Patreon funded my writing, and within a couple of months I had been cited in an economics journal by Walter Block for digging through the Congressional records to show exactly what the black votes were on the crack/cocaine disparity in prison sentencing to prove that this disparity was actually pushed into place by black activists and supported by black congressmen, and not a conspiracy on the part of racist whites.  Read more …

Why Porn Makes You Pathetic

1,549 words

Imagine a world where people live so devoid of happiness that it becomes a popular pastime to compensate by simply watching recordings of people smiling. The need is so severe that when making these recordings, no one even bothers to build in a plot—they just get right to the action of depicting images of people smiling, utterly devoid of any further context or deeper meaning.

The 2017 American Renaissance Conference

1,291 words

I’m sure I’m heavily biased because of the fact that this is only my second real-world appearance in association with the movement after reporting on Gilad Atzmon’s appearance with Stanley Cohen, Norton Mezvinsky, and Michael Lesher in New York City.

But the American Renaissance conference of 2017 felt downright historic.

Is the Gospel According to Mark an Allegory?

2,952 words

In my last essay, I presented the argument for why the strength of the historical evidence for the life of Jesus provided by the Gospels basically reduces to the strength of the evidence provided by the anonymously-authored book, written shortly after AD 70, that subsequently acquired the title “The Gospel According to Mark” most likely sometime in the 2nd century AD (henceforth, “Mark”).

So now it’s time to ask how strong that evidence is. Read more …

Is Jesus a Myth?

Isis with the infant Horus, faience, Ptolemaic period

3,069 words

I’ve spent most of my time at Counter-Currents focusing on issues that unite us rather than those that divide us. This hasn’t been out of any tepid desire to avoid controversy: I really do think the issues that unite us are far more important than those on which our community is split. Thus, I’ve been hesitant to risk sowing discord over side issues where we need unity more than ever.

But the truth of our side’s take on the issues that unite us—if you ask me—is obvious, and this just doesn’t always lend itself to interesting conversation. Read more …

Friberg Falls Back

4,327 words

Most people being exposed to Friberggate through the articles now appearing on Counter-Currents and AltRight are hearing isolated snippets and pieces of the story out of sequence. I’d like to provide something that might work as a reasonably thorough chronological account that places all these pieces in context.  Read more …

In Defense of “Losers”

2,168 words

Originally, I had planned for this essay to be a response to Jack Donovan’s still relatively recent essay, “Why I Am Not a White Nationalist.” However, I’ve decided that this essay would work better if thought of as an extended discussion of a couple of the topics raised by Donovan’s essay, rather than as another open letter response aimed at Donovan himself.

Introducing White Ramadan

Image by KEKM8

3,654 words

My task here is not to argue for or against the “white sharia” meme, but I must offer a brief outline of what that discussion was about before I begin.

Most proponents of the meme simply wanted to use it to advocate for a restoration of traditional gender roles within society. In reaction to the Manchester bombing, multiple “anti-sharia demonstrations have occurred across the country. Read more …

Jewish Survival Strategies:
An Interview with Gilad Atzmon

2,359 words

Editor’s Note: This interview was recently conducted by e-mail between Aedon Cassiel and Gilad Atzmon. Atzmon’s latest book, Being in Time: A Post-Political Manifesto, is being released tomorrow (May 24).

In your work, who do you consider yourself to be speaking to? If you don’t have a specific audience in mind, then my question is: if only one group of people could hear your message, who would you choose, and what would you have them do about it? Read more …

Gilad Atzmon in New York: A Report

4,008 words

On April 30, 2017, having had less than two days’ notice, I stepped onto a plane destined for New York City and took my first action as a “real journalist.” I had decided to travel to New York to cover Gilad Atzmon’s appearance on a panel entitled “Trump, Brexit, The Middle East . . . What Next?” alongside Stanley Cohen, Professor Norton Mezvinsky, and Michael Lesher. Read more …

The Double Standard of Reproductive Rights

Art by KEKM8

2,023 words

For a long time, the place where the double standards of feminism – and even, to some extent, those of mainstream society — were most clearly visible with regard to men has been on the subject of reproductive rights. The double standards are clearest here because, unlike other topics that require extensive research, this particular one is a built-in part of almost everyone’s everyday experience. Read more …
