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.

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.

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

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]

Two Orders, Same Man: Evola, Hesse, Part Two

Hermann Hesse with Thomas Mann and Jakob Wassermann in the Swiss Alps, 1931.

5,315 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

Here is where Hesse meets up with Evola: the two post-First World War writers share a number of themes, though what Evola would have called their “personal equation” gave them decidedly different interpretations. Demian, for example, treats of initiation, paganism, esoteric knowledge, and construction of elites, in ways comparable to Evola’s personal investigations with the UR group;[1] but apart from Hesse’s overall Jungian lens, his war-derived pacifism would have disgusted Evola. And his Buddha “is certainly not the one depicted by Hermann Hesse in his novel [Siddhartha].” Read more …
