Race & Class in the Films of Basil Dearden

Dearden and his clapper.

3,951 words

For decades now, I’ve been waiting for someone to package an oversized picture book called The Films of Basil Dearden. The 1970s would have been a good time for that, since Dearden died in ’71 (car accident), and this mid-rank British director was in need of appreciation. Read more …

Et tu, Brute?

590 words

In what is quite clearly emerging as a worldwide Deep State tactic to hamstring the rise of national populism wherever “the system” sees it raising its ugly head, we have — closely following the Trump impeachment saga and the arraignment of Marine Le Pen for posting violent ISIS images on her Twitter account — the withdrawal of the right to immunity for Matteo Salvini, Read more …

Knives Out

1,045 words

Knives Out, Rian Johnson’s much-hyped addition to the mystery genre, is a forgettable, self-indulgent film whose flashes of competence are incapable of redeeming its trite plot, pathetically unfunny script, and aggressive commitment to political correctness.

The film has all the trappings of a classic murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie or Dorothy L. Sayers. A wealthy patriarch, Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer, in remarkably good form at 90) is found dead in his mansion after celebrating his 85th birthday Read more …

Black History Month Blues:
The Tipping Point

2,160 words

Conservative blogger Kim du Toit had a revealing post earlier this month entitled “Blacktops.” In his words:

Anyone who’s ever worked in the restaurant business will know exactly what the title of this post means. Basically, it’s a denigrating [sic] term that waiters (of all races, by the way) use as shorthand to describe a table of Black customers. What “blacktop” means is that the servers are highly unlikely to get a tip from that seating. Black people don’t tip. Read more …

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 2:
Is Capitalism the Real Racist?

2,696 words

There are reasons why the neoliberal establishment hates Bernie Sanders so much, and it’s not just because he’s a threat to their donors’ stock portfolios. Class-based material Marxism — once a pillar of Leftist thought — is not only incompatible with but also heretical to the neoliberal worldview and agenda. Read more …

Bugpod Clans Won’t Replace the Family

1,422 words

Sleeping area of a PodShare co-living space.

Right-wing Twitter fumed earlier this week over the provocatively-titled essay “The Nuclear Family Was A Mistake.”

The Atlantic essay, written by New York Times columnist David Brooks, wasn’t necessarily an attack on traditional families. But that didn’t stop the deluge of anger that Brooks would dare slander the family. Read more …

No Greeks or Germans Allowed:
Yoram Hazony’s Anglo-Hebrew Nationalism

Horatio Greenough, George Washington

1,547 words

Israeli scholar Yoram Hazony wants to define nationalism for the entire West.

And that nationalism leaves no room for our classical heritage.

Counter-Currents readers are probably familiar with Hazony, his book The Virtue of Nationalism, and his “National Conservatism” conferences. Greg Johnson’s recent series on Hazony’s book is recommended (parts one, two, three, and four).

This essay covers another aspect of the Israeli political theorist: Read more …

The Flag Above Me

I’ve spent the last few days contacting friends in order to make plans for my upcoming birthday. I always try to make my birthday memorable, whether it be with a group of friends or by myself. Last year’s birthday was one that I would never forget, as I found myself singing a Polish folk song in a restaurant in Iceland while Antifa was burning an American flag directly outside. How did this all come about? Let’s find out. Read more …

“Ālea iacta est” — “The die has been cast” — Julius Caesar.

Super Bowl LIV:
America’s Death Rattle

2,420 wordsShakira and Bad Bunny performing at Super Bowl LIV halftime.

I know, the fifty-fourth Super Bowl is old news. Who cares about something that occurred more than 24 hours ago? We might as well discuss a Babylonian sporting event. However, this Super Bowl averaged 102 million viewers, which makes it the eleventh most-watched event in US history — the top 10 are nine other Super Bowls and the final episode of M*A*S*H — and it is the pinnacle of Americanism. All football games are one elongated advertisement to consume more product, but this particular commercial, Super Bowl LIV, was blatantly hostile to its own consumer base. This seems unique and warrants dissection. Read more …

Last week was deliciously bad for the Democrats. Utterly humiliated and reduced to impotent rage, they have been slammed with one major loss or crisis after another. Are we witnessing the self-destruction of a political party? Are the Democrats coming apart at the seams? Yes to both.

Iggy & the Stooges’ Raw Power

1,563 wordsCover of Iggy and the Stooges' Raw Power.

Iggy and the Stooges released the proto-punk slammer Raw Power on this day, February 7th, in 1973. It’s a raw, aggressive record that set the tone for genres as diverse in sound and era as punk, hardcore, grunge, and metal. Raw Power is also an early example of the importance of mixing and the dangers — or benefits — of studio control being handed to musicians.  Read more …

“Resistance is Futile”:
Hazony on Nations, Empires, & Minorities

1,771 words

Yoram Hazony’s argument in The Virtue of Nationalism (reviewed here and here) depends on a hard either/or between the nation-state and the empire. A nation is either sovereign or it isn’t. Empires inevitably destroy the sovereignty of the states they incorporate, even if this fact is cloaked in lovey liberal euphemisms.

Hazony, moreover, argues that even though empires might appeal to universalistic ideologies, they always begin with a particular people, a particular ethnic core, Read more …

Australian Artists of the Right:
Ian Mudie

6,512 words

The idea of “Australianity,” the uniqueness of Australia as a nation and new nationality, has its origins both in the pioneer labor movement and in the novelists, poets, and artists who saw vast possibilities in building a new civilization unencumbered by the decay of the Old World. The first saw their “socialism” in terms of a non-doctrinaire “mateship” that could forge a new “race” called Australians: an amalgam of the sundry peoples that had settled Australia from Europe, Read more …
