The Lighthouse:
A Review

1,306 words

What is the difference between a “psychological” horror movie and all the other kinds of horror movies? Probably in how slow-paced and bizarre the director is willing to make his final product. The Lighthouse, directed by Robert Eggers and featuring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattison, is a tall, creaking, alien edifice of the bizarre. And as with many a good psychological thriller, The Lighthouse offers several levels of exquisitely-rendered weirdness and forces the audience to figure out which level it’s on at any given point.

Rediscovering a Song

Harry Chapin

1,524 words

So what are the greatest acoustic guitar intros in pop music? Not exactly a conundrum I’ve pondered much until I stumbled across Rick Beato’s YouTube channel. Beato is a musician and producer whose breadth of musical knowledge I admire. He likes to do lists, and during his greatest acoustic guitar intros video, I had a revelation. Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2019 Fundraiser
The First Line of Defense

1,305 words

Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 in order to expand our efforts to build a metapolitical vanguard for White Nationalism. So far, we have received 348 donations totaling $88,929.71. We set our goals high because the task we have before us is formidable, but with your help, we will succeed. We want to thank everyone who has supported us so far. Read more …

The Great Alaskan Race

1,501 words

It’s always nice when a film presupposes that empathy is a universal human trait. Films that do this rarely go much beyond being merely nice, however. They tend to cling to their PG rating and their predictable story arcs until the obligatory uplifting ending. There is good in all of us, and if we’re just honest with ourselves and God, redemption can appear almost like a present at Christmas. Read more …

On Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Warning to the West

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

3,604 words

And all of us are standing on the brink of a great historical cataclysm, a flood that swallows up civilization and changes whole epochs.
–Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, BBC speech, March 24, 1976

In the summer of 1975, the recently-exiled Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn delivered three speeches in the United States: two to labor organizations and one to Congress. The following year, he was interviewed by the BBC and then delivered a speech over British radio. Read more …

The New Right: A Review

2,746 words

Michael Malice
The New Right: A Journey to the Fringe of American Politics
New York: St. Martin’s Press, 2019

What do you get when you have an anarchist diaspora Jew from the former Soviet Union who cannot abide the hypocrisy of the Left, but who is really nervous around the Right? Add to this someone who likes to write about himself, gonzo-style, as he tries to get a handle the important political issues of the day. Read more …

Tragedy as Comedy:
The Downfall of Jim Ignatowski

1,484 words

I remember being fascinated by an episode of the TV series Taxi as a kid. It was the one which offers the origin story of the frazzled, drug-addled cabbie Jim Ignatowski, who was memorably played by Christopher Lloyd. Even at such a young age, I was aware of hippies, drugs, and their prominence in the 1960s. Read more …

Ash Donaldson’s From Her Eyes a Doctrine:
A Review

2,206 words

Ash Donaldson’s novel From Her Eyes a Doctrine accomplishes several striking things which make it stand out among dissident literature. For one, it does what all novels should do: It tells an entertaining story – although in this case, we have multiple stories, some new, some old, some present, some past. A few of these stories are discrete; others are dropped off and revisited later. Read more …

Zionism vs. White Nationalism

Members of the Brit Habiryonim organization, a Zionist group which briefly supported the Third Reich and had a long-standing relationship with the Italian Fascists.

1,312 words

Most white identitarians and White Nationalists today are keenly aware of the hypocrisy practiced by our enemies – especially the Jewish ones – who declare that seeking sovereign white ethnostates across the world is somehow evil, while Jews doing the same thing in Israel is righteous. There really is no way to square this circle. One cannot support Jewish nationalism and oppose White Nationalism simultaneously without either being a Jewish supremacist of some kind or simply having an anti-white outlook. Read more …

It’s Time to Wage “War” on Protein Wisdom

2,135 words

Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom hates identity politics. He would like to wage war against it; stamp it out, as it were. The problem, however, is that the weapons he would like to use in this war only point in one direction: against whites. He pretends otherwise, but he’s easy enough to see through.

“Matryona’s House”:
Solzhenitsyn’s Love Letter to the Russian People

1,759 words

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn seemed to write novels like a historian. It’s as if he didn’t always know which details were more important than others, and so erred on the side of quantity rather than quality. Not that his novels don’t contain great stuff – rather, they tend to lead the reader through long and uneven passages in between the moments of greatness. Read more …

They Will Devour You

Rep. Cheri Bustos of Illinois, recently purged from the DCCC for being insufficiently ethnomasochistic.

1,740 words

Fiasco struck at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) recently, and this should give rise to a great deal of schadenfreude on the Right. Basically, the white leadership of the DCCC got purged by black and Hispanic elements in the Democrat Party. Committee Chair Cheri Bustos and Executive Director Allison Jaslow had seemingly put whites in most of their top positions, and black and Hispanic lawmakers were having none of it. They had been applying pressure for a while, and finally, the white heads started rolling.

Meathead is Right

1,717 words

Like many in Hollywood, actor/director Rob Reiner has dedicated much of his Twitter feed to bashing President Trump. Lately, however, he’s been taking it further by condemning Trump’s supporters as being just as bad as the President. There really is no end to the scorn he heaps on Trump and the sixty-three million people who put him in office:

The Many Faces of the Jewish Elite, Part 2
Pragers vs. Foxmans

Dennis Prager is all too happy to lecture whites on why combining race and nationalism is evil while supporting Israel, an ethnonationalist state.

2,714 words

Part 1 here

Among the secular diaspora Jews in the West, a useful distinction can be made. There are those who will give Right-wing whites some benefit of the doubt, and there are those who won’t. The former group we can call “pragers,” and the latter we can call “foxmans.”

Let’s assume that the vast majority of both pragers and foxmans are ethnocentric: that is, they identify ethnically as Jews and exist on the Right-wing side of their own politics. This ethnocentrism manifests itself in two ways: either honestly, by being pro-Jewish or pro-Israeli, or dishonestly, by being anti-white. Read more …

True Muslims, True Scotsmen

The Adana Massacre of 1909, in which Muslim Turks massacred tens of thousands of Armenian Christians – an example of True Islam?

2,584 words

Earlier this month, Counter-Currents published an interview in which Greg Johnson made some negative comments regarding Islam. He described Islam as an “inherently political” religion and a “memetic virus” which cannot be permitted in white societies since it will “destroy white societies and create societies that are foreign to, and unpleasant for, white people.”

In response, Alexander Wolfheze offered a qualified defense of Islam in which he concedes that “what many Westerners have experienced as ‘Islam’ is negative.” Read more …

Tolkien, A Review

1,206 words

One of the advantages of reading biographies is that even if they’re not very good, there remains the consolation of having learned something. Sadly, this is one of the few positive things that can be said about the recent biopic Tolkien.

Biographies can be tricky to adapt for the screen. Filmmakers will want to adhere to the truth as much as possible while still being able to tell a coherent and thematic story. How much artistic license is too much? Read more …

Two Red Pills from the World of Chess

Alexandra Botez, one of Canada’s top women chess players.

2,763 words

For a race and gender realist, the world of professional chess provides an embarrassment of riches, even if very few in the English-speaking parts of it wish to claim them. In chess, men dominate – specifically white, Jewish, and Asian men. Only three women have ever cracked the top hundred rated players in the world, according to the international chess federation FIDE.[1] And if current ratings of girls and boys are any indication, this arrangement will maintain itself indefinitely.[2] Read more …

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely remain focused on leading us to a grand climax throughout the story while keeping the edge between wondering what will happen next and knowing what will happen next reasonably sharp.

Unplanned: A Review

1,764 words

Unplanned has recently made a name for itself as an effective anti-abortion movie which has achieved success and popularity despite being suppressed by the Leftist media. It is an overtly Christian movie, based on a true story, and in many ways delivers what one would expect from a Christian movie: the pious characters, the constant sermonizing, the moral quandaries, the heartrending drama, and the inevitable redemption.
