Sigmund & the wolf.

2,559 words

Part I here, Part II here, Part III here, Part IV here

In our last installment, we saw that after Sigmund pulls the sword from the tree Barnstokk, Siggeir (who has just married Sigmund’s sister, Signy) offers to buy it from him. When Sigmund refuses, Siggeir immediately begins plotting revenge. On a pretext, he takes Signy and leaves the wedding feast early, inviting Volsung and his ten sons to visit him in Götaland.

Attack of the Bugmen!
Heinlein & Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers

2,269 words

Robert Heinlein’s novel Starship Troopers is a genre-defining classic of science fiction. First published in 1959, Heinlein’s work is audacious in propounding aristocratic militarism, will-to-power, social inequality, and contempt for liberal and mercantile values. Starship Troopers describes the path of a young man, Johnny Rico, from uncertain recruit to achieving the rank of Field Officer in an interstellar war against the “Bugs,” a species of giant arachnids.

What’s in a Home?

2,155 words

I took an interest in architecture a few years back, after reading Crawford’s The World Beyond Your Head. The book described the effects of the arrangement of space on how we perceived and acted in the world. The effects of arranged space could be negative—the distraction of eye-catching advertisements and flashing lights—or positive—the machine-like feeling of cooking in a well-stocked and well-organized kitchen.

Video of the Day
2018: A Space Manifesto

66 words / 2:29

Counter-Currents supporter Omar Filmersson made this short video to mark the importance of the appearance of Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto. He writes: “The Swedish translation of Dr. Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto is well in progress. Swedes are aging and dying in every sense, like an old man on his deathbed. This clip shows what will happen once the Swedish edition is out.”

The Zionist Factor in Africa:
Mossad & Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela meeting with Israeli PM Shimon Peres in Johannesburg in 2002.

4,300 words

During the 1980s, when the offensive against South Africa (SA) was at its height, the Right was focused on the prospect of the Soviet Union taking over the mineral wealth and strategic position of SA. I recall this because I was among those in New Zealand speaking in favor of SA, and using this specter as the main reason for opposing the anti-SA campaigns, albeit among the few who also defended white self-determination.

Killing Lincoln

1,160 words

One of the unmistakable features of modern conservatives is their not-so-veiled hostility toward heritage America. Some attribute this to ethnic hostility, given the infiltration of the Right by neoconservatives. Initially, these people made the journey from communism to anti-communism and were never conservative in temperament. Of course, the royal lifestyles of many conservatives has made them into unpleasant snobs. All of that is true to one degree or another, but it obscures an important point about modern conservatives.  Read more …

There are many like Robert Bloch’s character; some like Liam Suleman/Lucy Edwards, William/Gillian Jaggs, and Kayleigh-Louise Woods/Kyle Lockwood have all murdered women exactly like the character; others behave in other violent and depraved ways, like Miguel/Michelle Martinez, Kim Leverton, and Gary/Carys Cooper, who have all sexually assaulted children; still others are non-violent, but equally psychologically damaged.

Blaming Your Parents

Young Sailor Ripley lacked “parental guidance.”

1,444 words

In the past, people used to blame the gods or the fates for their misfortunes. These days, they like to blame their parents.

  • “My parents were sedentary and fat, and their bad example is why I grew up sedentary and fat.”
  • “My father was always uptight. And now I’m uptight and can’t enjoy life.”
  • “Growing up with a mother who drank, it was natural that I would take to drink as well.”

The Fallacy of Progress

2,835 words

Our “progressive” obsessions for change neglect to consider consequences. Change is demanded for the sake of a fad or a slogan: “equality,” “democracy,” “reproductive rights” . . . Even a word of caution is damned as “reactionary,” “old-fashioned,” or “fascist.” Traditions, customs, and beliefs are regarded as being as transient as the planned obsolescence of computers.

The Sci-Fi Channel’s Dune & Children of Dune

1,641 words

David Lynch’s Dune (1984) is a flawed masterpiece. When I first saw it, I was deeply disappointed. Frank Herbert’s original novel made a powerful impression on me. I could see Herbert’s world, and Lynch’s vision was not my vision. But when my initial impression faded and I returned to Lynch’s film with an open mind, I found it immensely imaginative and compelling. Even the score by Toto managed to grow on me.  Read more …

So Stephen Spielberg is remaking West Side Story.

Let me guess, Stephen. You believe that in the era of Trump, this classic tale of nativists versus immigrants — and about how “we should all just get along because we really aren’t all that different when you really think about it” — is more relevant than ever. Did I guess right, Stephen? Did I?
