Why I Write
What Does It All Mean?

Rembrandt, Aristotle Contemplating a Bust of Homer

2,152 words

I suspect that the path which led me to work with Counter-Currents is somewhat different from that of many of the other people who contribute to it. I did not naturally gravitate toward the Right at an early age, as did many of those I know who are active in it. I grew up in suburban New York, and although there were certainly experiences I had there that were to shape my later worldview, I was not conscious of them as such at the time. Read more …

Barbarians are Coming from the East:
Laibach in Trbovlje

Laibach in Trbovlje, October 29, 2017.

6,216 words

When I’ve tried to describe Laibach to the uninitiated, the best analogy I’ve come up with is, “Laibach is what would emerge if you were to take a group of industrial musicians and a group of political scientists and lock them in a gallery containing nothing but fascist, Communist, and modernist art for a year and then released them.” Read more …

The Truth about Daniel Friberg

4,904 words

This is an article I really wish I didn’t need to write. I suspect many of Counter-Currents’ readers wish I didn’t have to write it, either, since I believe that most people who visit sites like this one do so because they are interested in ideas and incisive commentary rather than interpersonal drama and feuding. And when the conflict between my colleague Greg Johnson and my former colleague Daniel Friberg broke out earlier this month, I had fully intended to stay out of it. Read more …

What Would Evola Do?

5,766 words

The follow is the text of the talk that Counter-Currents editor John Morgan delivered to The New York Forum on Saturday.

Tonight I thought I’d talk about Julius Evola, since yesterday (May 19) was his 119th birthday, and I have overseen the publication of many of Evola’s texts in English. Read more …

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

3,518 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 …
