The Iran Opportunity

1,294 words

I’d like to say that the assassination of Qasem Soleimani isn’t the end of the world, but it’s too soon to say, because World Wars have started with similar provocations.

It is, however, safe to say that Donald Trump has made his dumbest foreign policy decision yet, for the same reason he made all of his other dumb foreign policy decisions: listening to the Israel First lobby Read more …

Against Accelerationism

1,269 words

Accelerationism is the idea that the best way to achieve White Nationalist goals is to accelerate the decline of the present system. This will supposedly have two effects. First, acceleration will weaken the system’s ability to maintain power, including to oppress dissenters. Second, acceleration will anger and awaken the white masses, making them more receptive to our message.

Remembering Alan Watts:
January 6, 1915–November 16, 1973

159 words

Alan Watts was born on this day in 1915. A prolific scholar and dazzling stylist, Watts is best known as the chief popularizer of Asian philosophy for the Beat and Hippy movements, but he was also an original thinker in his own right and a quiet man of the Right. In commemoration of his birth, I wish to draw your attention to these works at Counter-Currents: Read more …

Remembering J. R. R. Tolkien:
January 3, 1892–September 2, 1973

488 words

“I am in fact a Hobbit.”—J. R. R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is a favorite author of New Left “hippies” and New Right nationalists, and for pretty much the same reasons. Tolkien deeply distrusted modernization and industrialization, which replace organic reciprocity between man and nature with technological dominion of man over nature, a relationship that deforms and devalues both poles.

Jim Goad
The Bomb Inside My Brain
Stone Mountain, Ga.: Obnoxious Books, 2019

One thing White Nationalists need to change the cultural and political mainstream are people who are not White Nationalists but who nevertheless publicly support some of our claims and stand up for the legitimacy of our concerns, our right to speak our minds, and our right to participate in the political process.

The UK Voted for National Populism

When Brexit won and I heard “Land of Hope and Glory” played at one of the celebrations, I found myself tearing up, much to my surprise. Of course, it makes sense. England is my ancestral homeland. But actually feeling it came as a surprise. It was one of those “Welcome to the human race” experiences. Read more …

Předchozí části: prvnídruhátřetí.

Bělošský nacionalismus 1.0 & 2.0

V roce 2015, kdy se nová alternativní pravice postupně začínala sžívat s myšlenkou bělošského nacionalismu, měla většina s ní spojených lidí jen velice matné povědomí o předchozích generacích hnutí. (Blogger) Lawrence Murray se například svěřil s tím, že „osobně nikdy neslyšel o [Williamu] Pierceovi ani [Davidu] Dukeovi… dokud nenarazil na alternativní pravici.“ Read more …

Část prvnídruhá, a závěrečná čtvrtá.

 Centralizace, čistky a kolaps

Richardu Spencerovi bylo přirozeně líto, že opustil značku, jíž se zaštítila tak energická politická síla a která se stala mezinárodní mediální senzací. Proto se pokusil ji znovu dostat do svého vlastnictví. Byl tu ale problém: nové hnutí z let 2014 a 2015 mělo se Spencerem společného jen pramálo, s výjimkou jména. Spencer to potvrdil v rozhovoru s politologem Georgem Hawleyem z 12. října 2016, v němž akademik shromažďoval podklady pro svou knihu Understanding the Alt-Right. Read more …
