James J. O'Meara

James J. O’Meara was born in Detroit, educated in Canada, and now lives in an abandoned glove factory in America’s Rust Belt. From atop this crumbling remnant of America’s industrial might, he broods with morose delectation over the inevitable reappearance of the hordes of White youth known to history as the Männerbünde, or Wild Boys. His periodic bulletins on their activities appear on his blog, Where the Wild Boys Are (http://jamesjomeara.blogspot.com/), and at Counter-Currents.com. A collection of his essays, The Homo and the Negro, appearing shortly from Counter-Currents, will serve as their handbook.

Brother Stair

Millions of prayers are daily unanswered because man prays to a God who does not exist. — Neville Goddard[1]

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. — T. E. Lawrence[1] Read more …

The New Annotated H.P. Lovecraft: Beyond Arkham
Foreword and notes by Leslie S. Klinger
Introduction by Victor LaValle
New York: Liveright, 2019

It doesn’t take much to confuse me, I guess. Having enthusiastically reviewed Leslie Klinger’s previous The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft,[1] I now find he has put out another New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft, distinguished only by the subtitle, Beyond Arkham (which sounds like a graphic novel). Read more …

Artist & Autist:
Crowley in the Light of Neville, Part 2

Neville

4,196 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

It is with relief that one turns to Neville’s biography; the bright Sun, soft breezes and blue ocean of the Caribbean replace the dark and soggy little Plymouth Brethren colony.[1]

Neville speaks of his father many times – itself a clue – but here is one of my favorites, and it includes much interesting material for our considerations:

A Word from the Wise Guy:
The Mid-Century Mysticism of Max Stirner, Part II

5,125 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

In my previous essay on Stirner, I suggested that the modern online community, or the Internet itself, would be an excellent example of a “Union of Egoists.” And here we meet with Neville again; for although, like Stirner, his career was on a downslope at his death – for reasons we will soon examine – Read more …

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

“While, to get greater clarity, I am thinking up a comparison, the founding of Christianity comes unexpectedly into my mind.” — Max Stirner, The Ego and His Own

In recent essays, I’ve looked at the writings of Max Stirner[1] and tried to determine the reason for his increasing relevance in the Internet age, and to the Dissident Right in particular.[2]

Max Stirner:
Marxist, Meme Master, or Mentor?
Part Two

4,274 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

C. Max Stirner: Nineteenth-Century Shitlord

But we can sharpen our focus a bit more; Stirner’s contemporary popularity and perceived relevance may derive from a more specific connection. Since few outside of a small, hate-filled and self-inflated academic clique thinks Marx is “hip,” I’d like to keep the focus on Stirner as a Dissident Right harbinger.

Five Books that Shook My World (2018)

547 words

1. Camille Paglia, Provocations: Collected Essays on Art, Feminism, Politics, Sex, and Education (New York: Pantheon, 2018).

Paglia is self-recommending, of course. I was a bit let down, as the subtitle seemed to promise a career-wide retrospective, while this is more like a reunion tour, with emphasis on more recent works. The key essays are a vast survey, “Cults and Cosmic Consciousness: Religious Vision in the American 1960s,” a liberal education in itself; Read more …

Overcomer to the End:
The Return of Brother Stair

Brother Stair

1,905 words

After spending a restless night after reading the latest productions of the Dissident Right, I sought solace, at around 4 AM, in one of my favorite entertainments: radio preachers. I was listening to some Jamaican rabbiting on about how important the support of his Brooklyn ministry was when there was a burst of static, a few moments of fuzziness, and then – suddenly – the unmistakable voice and teachings of Brother Stair!
