John Morgan

John Morgan was born in New York, where he was raised, and then lived for many years in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he graduated with a degree in literature from the University of Michigan. These days he divides his time between the US and Budapest, Hungary. He was one of the founders of Arktos Media in 2010 and served as its Editor-in-Chief until 2016. Today he is an editor for Counter-Currents Publishing. In addition to the New and Alt Right, John's interests include literature, philosophy, religion and esotericism, consciousness, and related issues. A lifelong lover of books and ideas of all sorts, John sees his work as a publisher as the fulfillment of his dream of combining his bibliomania with his desire to bring cutting-edge ideas based in and defending the best traditions to the world.

The Man of the Twentieth Century:
Remembering Ernst Jünger,
March 29, 1895-February 17, 1998

3,519 words

If I could choose to be anyone from the twentieth century, I would not hesitate for a moment to pick Ernst Jünger. The man did just about everything it was possible to do in his time, and stretched the limits of what one individual can accomplish in a lifetime to their breaking point. His incredible lifespan alone (he died a month shy of his 103rd birthday) spanned the Kaiserreich, the German Revolution, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the Federal Republic of Germany, and finally, reunited Germany in his final decade – Read more …

The Power of Myth:
Remembering Joseph Campbell,
March 26, 1904-October 30, 1987

2,315 words

Joseph Campbell, the famed teacher of comparative mythology, was born on this day in 1904. For many people, including yours truly, he has served as a “gateway drug” into not only a new way of looking at myths, but into a non-materialistic way of viewing the world. And although as a public figure, Campbell mostly remained apolitical, evidence from his private life indicates that he was at least nominally a “man of the Right.” Read more …

Alt Right versus New Right

Alt Right meets New Right: John Morgan with Alain de Benoist at the 2013 NPI conference.

3,849 words (Greek translation here)

The following is the text of the talk that John Morgan was scheduled to deliver at Identitarian Ideas IX in Stockholm last Saturday, but was unable to due to circumstances beyond his control. As such it was intended for a primarily Swedish audience.

Today I want to talk about two schools of political thought that on the surface seem similar, but that are in fact quite different in a number of fundamental ways: namely the Alt Right and the European New Right. Read more …

Remembering Robinson Jeffers:
January 10, 1887–January 20, 1962

274 words

Robinson Jeffers was born on January 10, 1887.

Once regarded as one of the greatest American poets, Jeffers is largely forgotten by the literary establishment today, no doubt because of his politically incorrect subjects and views. A Nietzschean who was accused of fascist sympathies (which he denied), he celebrated nature and the outdoors in his work, eschewing the abstruse modernist style that was fashionable in his day.
