Remembering Oswald Spengler:
May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936

553 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 Richard Wagner:
May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883

444 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.

Historicizing the Historicists:
Notes on Leo Strauss’ “The Living Issues of German Postwar Philosophy,” Part 2

Max Weber

4,535 words

Part 1 here

The Intellectual Bankruptcy of the Present Age

Not only does Strauss claim that historicism is a healthy reaction to the intellectual bankruptcy of the modern world, in the next section of his essay, he also attributes this bankruptcy to non-historicist causes.

First, Strauss talks about Max Weber’s Learning and Science as Vocation. He specifically objects to Weber’s claim that reason cannot speak about the ultimate aims of life: Read more …

Historicizing the Historicists:
Notes on Leo Strauss’ “The Living Issues of German Postwar Philosophy,” Part 1

3,215 words

Part 1 of 2 

Leo Strauss is widely known as a critic of historicism and an advocate of classical philosophy. Historicism holds that philosophical ideas are relative to culture, whereas classical philosophy aims for knowledge of nature, which is not relative to culture. But what is Strauss’s own point of view? Does he base his arguments on historicist or classical philosophical premises? Read more …

Remembering Dominique Venner:
April 16, 1935–May 21, 2013

527 words

The French soldier, historian, and European patriot Dominique Venner was born on this day in 1935. He famously ended his life with a bullet on the altar of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris on May 21, 2013 to protest the demographic replacement of Europeans. Through both his life’s work and his death, Venner wished to draw attention to the demographic decline of European man and to indicate what we must be prepared to give to save our people: everything. But his death will be in vain unless it is remembered. So take this day to remember Dominique Venner: his life, his work, and his sacrifice.

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.

Video of the Day
Against Right-Wing Terrorism

71 words / 29:42

Here is the video of Greg Johnson’s talk at the Scandza Forum in Stockholm last Saturday, March 30. Greg discusses the many trends which indicate why those on the Right should be feeling optimistic about the future, given that our metapolitical efforts are beginning to bear fruit, and why the desperate situation that Right-wing terrorists and their supporters feel that they have been forced into simply isn’t borne out by the facts.

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.

Remembering Guillaume Faye:
November 7, 1949–March 7, 2019

I was deeply saddened to learn today of the death of French New Right philosopher and polemicist Guillaume Faye after a battle with cancer. Faye had been sick for some time, but he was so focused on writing what will now be his last book that he postponed seeing a doctor until it was complete. When he finally sought medical attention, he was diagnosed with stage four cancer. There is no stage five. Guillaume Faye gave his life for his work, and his work for Europe. Read more …

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

February was another strong month for Counter-Currents. We added 54 pieces to our webzine and more than 20 videos and nearly a thousand subscribers to our YouTube channel.

I also appeared on four podcasts including episodes of The Public Space, Millennial Woes, The After Party, and Red Ice TV to talk about the censorship of Counter-Currents titles by Amazon.com.

Amazon.com Bans The White Nationalist Manifesto

1,310 words

On Sunday, February 24th, 2019, Amazon.com — the world’s book marketplace — banned my book The White Nationalist Manifesto.

Amazon did not merely decide to no longer stock the book. They also removed the product listing pages. So it is as if the book never even existed.

Orwell called this the “memory hole.” It is not enough for totalitarians to kill their enemies. They must also be erased from history.  Read more …
