Counter-Currents Loses Its Payment Processor Yet Again

345 words

Last week, we were cut off from yet another credit card processor – at least the fourth time just this year that this has happened. This means that for the time being, we are not able to receive payments for books or donations from credit cards. We are working full-time to set up a replacement – and rest assured, we will – and we hope to have one up and running in a matter of days.

Columbus Day Special
The Autochthony Argument

prisoner-atlas

Michelangelo, Unfinished Slave

2,115 words

Translations: FrenchSpanish

One of the perennial accusations against white colonial societies around the globe—in the Americas, Africa, and the Antipodes—is that they are morally illegitimate because other people were there first. This is what I call the “autochthony argument,” from the Greek “αὐτόχθων,” meaning “springing from the land,” i.e., indigenous.  According to this argument, the original inhabitants of a land are its rightful owners (“finders-keepers”), and it is a violation of these rights for other peoples to displace them.

Remembering Aleister Crowley:
October 12, 1875–December 1, 1947

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

382 words

Aleister Crowley was an English poet, novelist, painter, and mountaineer who is most famous as an occultist, ceremonial magician, and founder of the religion and philosophy of Thelema. But ironically Crowley’s supposed Satanism and Black Magic are far less frightening to most people than his politics. For Aleister Crowley was also a man of the Right.

Remembering Roy Campbell:
October 2, 1901–April 22, 1957

Roy Campbell

1,561 words

Roy Campbell was a South African poet and essayist. T. S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, and Edith Sitwell praised Campbell as one of the best poets of the inter-war period. Unfortunately, his conservatism, Nietzscheanism, and Catholicism, as well as his open contempt for the Bloomsbury set and his participation in the Spanish Civil War on the Fascist side, have led his works to be consigned to the memory hole.

News about the Limited Edition Hardcover of
Greg Johnson’s Toward a New Nationalism

1,034 words

When I started work on The White Nationalist Manifesto, I thought it would be a good fundraiser to offer a limited edition of 200 signed, numbered copies.

  • The new release date is December 15 of this year. Everyone should have their copies before Christmas.
  • There are 120 copies remaining.

James Allsup

2,256 words

Over the last few days, I have been watching YouTube burn. Friends and colleagues have had their channels, large and small, deleted, many of them without warning or any pretense of fairness, rules, process, or appeal. It is Leftist corporate tyranny at its ugliest and least accountable.

The first wave of this new campaign was in June. That is when CounterCurrentsTV got the axe. Read more …
