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.

Bonfire of the Dunces

Gordon Peter Wilson
Quench the Smoldering Wick
CreateSpace, 2018

I want to fit in!” — Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

Whatever one’s opinion of A Confederacy of Dunces, it surely must be the funniest book ever to take place in New Orleans, a city that seems to attract a more somber muse, such as Tennessee Williams or even Anne Rice. Read more …

Protocols of the Puppies of the Alt Right

5,872 words

Ex Ignum Sapientiae
The Alt-Right-Hand Path
Amazon Digital Services, 2018

“[Leo] Strauss relished his role as a guru to worshiping disciples, once writing of ‘the love of the mature philosopher for the puppies of his race, by whom he wants to be loved in turn.’”[1]

This book had an interesting effect on me; a positive effect, but I’m not sure it’s the one the author intended. Read more …

Howgill House Books, 2017

She’s So High, High Above Me:
Watching The Fountainhead on TCM

2,176 words

You know I always wanted to pretend that I was an architect.
–George Costanza[1]

The Fountainhead is something of a rite of passage or gateway drug on the Right. Back in the 1960s/’70s it was more likely the movie than the book that one stumbled upon. I suppose I must have seen it on some afternoon movie show back in the ‘60s. Was it the Bill Kennedy at the Movies show on CKLW out of Windsor, Ontario on Saturday afternoons? Read more …

John Lauritsen
The Shelley-Byron Men: Lost Angels of a Ruined Paradise 
Pagan Press, 2017

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t think of reviewing a book on Shelley, Byron & Co.; mainly because I know little about them, other than what used to be generally known among the educated (before English was replaced with gender studies and time off for anti-Trump demos), plus what I read from Camille Paglia.  Read more …

Duper’s Delight or Draper’s Diddle?

Still don’t think Pizzagate is real?

1,300 words

Thursday’s long awaited testimony from FBI agent Peter Strzok[1] — usually referred to as “disgraced FBI agent” on the Right and as “heroic FBI agent” on the Left[2] — certainly lived up to the anticipation; but not for the anticipated reasons.

Instead, while Strzok’s smugness, contempt, and at times obvious anger were unusual in a Congressional witness, it was Strzok’s bizarre body language and facial tics that provoked the most extreme fascination.  Read more …

Bombs Away! Neville & the Neocons

1,701 words

Since, against all justice, probability – and even common sense – the infamous neocons seem to have taken power once again (as witness the return of John Bolton, and the quickly following bombing campaign in Syria), it may be well to consider once again how out of touch, how foreign, how downright alien, the neocon is, vis-à-vis our native European traditions.

Laughing Gallows Books, 2018

She never felt as good as when she got settled inside this little private world. Which wasn’t saying much.[1]

Here’s a new book by Ann Sterzinger, and it’s not what you’d expect.

After all, she does have a hard-won reputation as the Princess of Pessimism, the Duchess of Depression, the Marschallin of Misanthropy and Misery. Read more …

From Barbados to Black Panther:
Will Afrofuturism Beat Archeofuturism?

4,197 words

“[We] looked up the royal family in the Almanack de Gotha and traced their descent from Solomon and the Queen of Sheba; we found a history which began: ‘The first certain knowledge which we have of Ethiopian history is when Cush the son of Ham ascended the throne immediately after the Deluge.’ … Everything I heard added to the glamour of this astonishing country.” — Evelyn Waugh on Abyssinia (Ethiopia)

Here comes the new movie, Black Panther (Coogler, 2018), and the reaction is predictable. Read more …

Neville & the Rebel:
Reflections on Colin Wilson & Neville Goddard

Neville Goddard

4,337 words

Part 2 of 2; part 1 here

Earlier, I noted Wilson’s second thoughts, 45 years later, about Religion and the Rebel as an “overstuffed pillow”; he specifically felt that the early biographical material on Rilke was “unnecessary.” But actually, it supplies us with a remarkable parallel to Neville’s method, as well as a hint of Wilson’s future development.

Wilson says if Rilke had died at age twenty-five, no one would have remembered him. Instead, he willed himself to be a poet. Read more …

“The fact that he wears lipstick and long gloves is not calculated to endear him to the stuffy . . . In fact, more of our young novelists should wear lipstick and even nail varnish. It might brighten up their prose styles . . . The fact that his work is concerned with sex on a most serious level is also not calculated to recommend him to the sort of people who organise these literary jamborees.” — J. G. Ballard[1]
