The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
All Hands On Deck!

804 words

There’s never a good time for a pandemic or an economic crisis, but the current convergence of catastrophes could not have come at a worse time: close on the heels of losing yet another payment processor and just before we had to lay out significant capital for some much-needed work on our website. We are completely redesigning our webzine and spinning off a separate e-store in celebration of our 10th anniversary, which is coming up on June 11th. Read more …

Remembering Richard Wagner
(May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883)

472 words

Richard Wagner was born 206 years ago today in Leipzig in the Kingdom of Saxony. He died on February 13, 1883 in Venice. As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right. I wish to draw your attention to the following writings which have been published at Counter-Currents. Read more …

Remembering Julius Evola:
May 19, 1898–June 11, 1974

1,010 words

Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on May 19, 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website. In commemoration of his birthday, I wish to draw your attention to the following resources.

Counter-Currents has published the following writings of Evola’s:  Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
A Near-Death Experience

Carlos Schwabe, Death of the Gravedigger

1,487 words

Last week I got a scare. I got a message from one of my friends. He was afraid he had caught the coronavirus and had called 911. I called his home the next day, fearing the worst, and I was delighted to hear that it turned out to be a false alarm. But the feeling of relief was short-lived, because this past weekend, I learned that another friend — a longtime reader and supporter of Counter-Currents — has died of the coronavirus.

I’ve always believed this is a very real crisis. Even when it was only affecting the Chinese, I knew it would quickly spread to white countries. Read more …

Notes on Dune Messiah

1,468 words

Frank Herbert’s Dune Messiah (1969) is the first of five sequels to his masterwork Dune (1965). It is the shortest of the sequels, and I found it one of the least satisfying. The best sequels are Children of Dune (1976) and God Emperor of Dune (1981). The worst are Heretics of Dune (1984) and Chapterhouse Dune (1985).

John W. Campbell, editor of Astounding Science Fiction magazine, rejected Dune Messiah because he did not like the transformation of Paul Atreides, the hero of Dune, into a sulking anti-hero buffeted about by forces beyond his control. Read more …

I gave this lecture on the concepts of the sublime and the grotesque in a course on Basic Concepts of Aesthetics on September 5, 2000.

Remembering Jonathan Bowden:
April 12, 1962–March 29, 2012

943 words

Jonathan David Anthony Bowden was born on April 12, 1962. He died on March 29, 2012, just short of his 50th birthday. Jonathan was a painter, novelist, essayist, playwright, actor, and orator. He was also a friend. His ideas and personality have had a real and permanent impact on my approach to New Right metapolitics. He will be missed, but he will also be remembered and honored.

I’m Changing My Tune About Coronavirus

1,420 words

The coronavirus pandemic is a complex and changing phenomenon, and so are my thoughts about it.

I can sympathize with the ecologists who think that the Earth has far too many humans and would welcome a pandemic to dramatically reduce our numbers. But not yet. This is not the time, because coronavirus isn’t the killer they’ve been hoping for, and as a member of a race that is already on the path to extinctionRead more …

Introduction to a Banned Book

You can buy Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto here

2,002 words

Author’s Note:

This is the introduction to my best-selling book The White Nationalist Manifesto, which has been banned from 80% of the global book market controlled by Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. But it is available from better booksellers, including Counter-Currents.

What would you do if tomorrow morning you learned that you had one week to live—seven more days, then no future? The world would go on, but you would not be in it. At first, most people would feel shock and sadness. Read more …

How Coronavirus Will Change the World

Remembering Gabriele D’Annunzio:
March 12, 1863–March 1, 1938

142 words

Today is the birthday of Gabriele D’Annunzio, novelist, poet, playwright, aesthete, dandy, playboy, war hero, and the first fascist dictator, who from 1919 to 1920 ruled over the Adriatic city-state of Fiume, establishing many of the political and aesthetic forms followed by Mussolini a few years later.

To learn more about D’Annunzio’s life and accomplishments, see the following works on this site: Read more …

Counter-Currents Under Attack

1,100 words

Once again, Counter-Currents is without a credit card processor. But it’s worse than ever, folks. We have not been dropped by our credit card processor. In fact, when the usual suspects pressured them to drop their dissident clients, they stood by us. So instead, our enemies managed to put our credit card processor out of business.

This is a whole new level of tyranny.

In 2019, Counter-Currents was deplatformed from 80% of the global book market (Amazon and Barnes and Noble). Read more …

Remembering Richard M. Weaver:
March 3, 1910–April 1, 1963

Richard M. Weaver

671 words

America wasn’t always a liberal country. The founders drew more upon classical republicanism than liberalism. In the nineteenth century, the populist movement was decidedly anti-liberal. But the founders and the populists were never consistently anti-liberal, because consistency is the province of intellectuals, not statesmen.

America never had a genuinely anti-liberal intellectual movement until the Southern Agrarians of the 1920s and 1930s. (The North American New Right is America’s second anti-liberal intellectual movement.) Read more …

Bond Songs, From Best to Worst

1,548 words

Is Billie Eilish’s new Bond song, “No Time to Die,” the worst Bond song ever? Close. But sadly, there is a lot of competition for that title. Here is my ranking, from best to worst.

Note: Not every Bond theme is a Bond song. Doctor No and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service have instrumental themes. Beyond that, many Bond movies contain non-theme songs that are, nevertheless, strongly associated with the films. I will discuss two of them here.  Read more …
