394 words

Francis Parker Yockey was born 101 years ago today, September 18, in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right.

Technological Utopianism & Ethnic Nationalism

2,882 words

Author’s Note:

This is the text of my talk at the fourth meeting of the Scandza Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark, on September 15, 2018.

I want to thank everybody who was there, and everybody who made the Forum possible.  Read more …

Thomas J. Main
The Rise of the Alt-Right

Notes on Revolution in Chuck Palahniuk’s Adjustment Day

1,088 words

Chuck Palahniuk’s Adjustment Day is a highly imaginative and entertaining novel that reflects a long and deep immersion in the online world of White Nationalism, from the best of it to the worst and all shades in between.

I don’t have much to add to the reviews of Adjustment Day by Jef Costello and James O’Meara, so I wish to focus here on some of Palahniuk’s thoughts about how an ethnonationalist revolution might occur, and how it might go wrong.  Read more …

Unite the Right 2 Couldn’t Have Been Better

1,068 words

I feared the worst, but I am glad that I was wrong. Jason Kessler’s Unite the Right 2 rally outside the White House on Sunday, August 12th, was a triumph. It was still a highly risky, even foolhardy venture, and I would not have done it. But luckily, it ended up being good for white identity politics.  Read more …

Valkoisuus

2,476  words

Suomentanut Timo Hännikäinen; English original here

Yksi ilmeinen tapa hyökätä valkoista nationalismia vastaan on väittää, että itse valkoisuuden käsite on ongelmallinen. Käsittelen nyt neljää sellaista vastaväitettä. Ensiksi, valkoisuuden käsitettä pidetään poliittisesti tarpeettomana. Toiseksi, valkoisuuden oletetaan kumoavan etnisen identiteetin. Kolmanneksi, valkoisuuden väitetään olevan sosiaalinen konstruktio, ei luonnollinen kategoria. Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2018 Fundraiser
Bubble Boys

1,119 words

According to standard Left-wing boilerplate, White Nationalists like me don’t speak or write; we “spew.” We don’t “spew” ideas, arguments, and facts. We spew “hate.” This hate, moreover, does not spread from mind to mind because it rationally convinces people. Instead, its propagation is “virulent,” like Ebola. When a mind virus is spreading, one does not refute it by appeals to facts and arguments. Instead, you have to contain it. You have to quarantine the carriers, like me, so they can’t infect other people. In short, you need censorship.
