George Floyd Got Justice

1,076 words

The cries for justice over the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were hoaxes. Both men were criminals who died because they were dumb enough to assault men with guns. The same is true of Ahmaud Arbery.

They got justice.

Remembering Knut Hamsun
(August 4, 1859–February 19, 1952)

427 words

Knut Hamsun was born Knut Pedersen in Lom, Norway on August 4, 1859. He died in Grimstad, Norway, on February 19, 1952. The author of more than twenty novels, plus poems, short stories, plays, and essays, Hamsun was one of the twentieth century’s most influential writers. His rejection of both Romanticism and naturalism, his emphasis on outsiders and rebels, and his exploration of inner and sometimes extreme states of consciousness, made him a pioneer of literary modernism.

What Are Trump’s Chances?

1,821 words

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

People keep asking me for my predictions for the 2020 US Presidential elections. It is really impossible to say.

As the incumbent, Donald Trump, would normally enjoy the advantage, but incumbency has been nullified by two serious disadvantages: Read more …

It’s Okay to Be White

Just download and print!

2,068 words

The Left characterizes the United States and other white countries around the world as systems of “white supremacy” and “white privilege.”

White Nationalists claim that the United States and most other white countries are committed to “white genocide”: the “great replacement” of whites by nonwhites, which is the predictable consequence of political decisions to promote sub-replacement white fertility, race-mixing, and race-replacement immigration.

This year, Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000. Since our last update, we have received 27 donations totaling $6,031.

Remembering Carl Schmitt
(July 11, 1888–April 7, 1985)

Carl Schmitt, 1888–1985

1,036 words

Carl Schmitt was born on July 11, 1888 in Plettenberg, Westphalia, Germany — where he died on April 7, 1985, at the age of 96. The son of a Roman Catholic small businessman, Carl Schmitt studied law in Berlin, Munich, and Strasbourg, graduating and taking his state exams in Strasbourg in 1915. In 1916, he earned his habilitation in Strasbourg, qualifying him to be a law professor. He taught at business schools and universities in Munich, Greifswald, Bonn, Berlin, and Cologne.

Notes on Schmitt’s Crisis & Ours

Carl Schmitt, 1888–1985

3,994 words

Like many of his books, Carl Schmitt’s The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy (1923) is a slender volume packed with explosive ideas.[1] The title of the English translation is somewhat misleading. The German title, Die geistesgeschichtliche Lage des heutigen Parlamentarismus, is more literally rendered The Intellectual-Historical Position of Contemporary Parliamentarism. But the word “crisis” is still appropriate, because parliamentary democracy in Weimar Germany really was in crisis. Read more …

Remembering William Butler Yeats:
June 13, 1865–January 28, 1939

William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939

170 words

William Butler Yeats, the Irish poet, playwright, and politician, was born on this day in 1865. One of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Yeats’ life and work straddle the great divide between Romanticism and Modernism. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

In life and in art, Yeats rejected modern rationalism, materialism, and egalitarianism. He saw them as coarsening and brutalizing.

Happy Birthday to Us!

1,977 words

It was ten years ago today that the Counter-Currents website went online. I can’t count the number of writers, YouTubers, podcasters, websites, and entire movements that have come and gone in our ideological sphere in the last ten years. The attrition is understandable. Deplatforming, demonetization, and demoralization take their toll. But Counter-Currents is still here, and we are not going anywhere. Read more …

Counter-Currents Birthday Party Guestbook

104 words

Counter-Currents is mostly an online community, but we were planning a major in-real-life party in New York to celebrate our 10th birthday, which is today, Thursday, June 11. But we didn’t foresee the Globalvirus, much less widespread “urban” unrest. So today’s party will be a virtual one, as in the past.

The comment thread below will serve as our birthday Guest Book. Mark the occasion by leaving a comment below or on other birthday-related threads. Read more …

The Counter-Currents Newsletter, May 2020

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance Conferences are wonderful opportunities for education and networking. I always look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones at AmRen. The 2020 American Renaissance Conference was supposed to have happened this past weekend. I planned to be there and timed the launch of my new book White Identity Politics to coincide with it. Two weeks later, I was planning to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Counter-Currents going online with a big party in New York City. Read more …

Remembering Oswald Spengler
(May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936)

580 words

Oswald Spengler was born on this day in 1880. For his contributions to the philosophy of history and culture, Spengler is one of the most important philosophical influences on the North American New Right, largely by way of his disciple Francis Parker Yockey. Spengler is often wrong, but even when he errs, he does so magnificently.

Remembering Louis-Ferdinand Céline
(May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961)

215 words

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist. For more on Céline, see the following works on this website: 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 …
