Historical Optimism & Historical Perspective

John William Waterhouse, Destiny, 1900

1,148 words

It is traditional around New Year’s Day to be reflective of the year past and to anticipate the events of the coming year. First of all, I would like to commend Spencer Quinn for his excellent article “No Goal More Noble: Thoughts for the New Year” that appeared yesterday on Counter-Currents. Mr. Quinn’s eschewal of the black pill at the end of this most blackpilling of years represents an act of moral will that is truly inspiring. Read more …

2018: The Year to End all Years
(And What to Expect from 2019!)

1,754 words

It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times. Actually, it wasn’t all that bad. In fact, quite a few good things happened in 2018 – in the world, and even in our Movement.

Just for kicks, let’s first look at what the Establishment is celebrating. CNN ran an article on its website with the encouraging title “2018 Wasn’t ALL Bad: Here Are All the Good Things that Happened in the World.” Read more …

My Five Favorite Books of 2018

1,241 words

Although it probably needs no print space, I wanted to begin with the worst book I read because it is so awful that it inspired me to read a couple on my real top five list. In fact, I’m even cheating a little bit because I started it in 2017, but it really made an impression on me.

Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century (New York: Tim Duggan Books 2017). Read more …

Perused with Pleasure in 2018
My Top 5 Books

1,530 words

I was using my Spectator-co-uk digital subscription to search for odds and ends in its wonky archive. What, I wondered, did the Speccy have to say about the Angry Young Men in the late 1950s? Better yet, what did they have on Colin Wilson and his friend, the ever-elusive Bill Hopkins?

Not an awful lot, as it turns out. Read more …

Five Books that Shook My World (2018)

547 words

1. Camille Paglia, Provocations: Collected Essays on Art, Feminism, Politics, Sex, and Education (New York: Pantheon, 2018).

Paglia is self-recommending, of course. I was a bit let down, as the subtitle seemed to promise a career-wide retrospective, while this is more like a reunion tour, with emphasis on more recent works. The key essays are a vast survey, “Cults and Cosmic Consciousness: Religious Vision in the American 1960s,” a liberal education in itself; Read more …

My Favorite Books of 2018

912 words

I have read about 40 books in 2018 (so far). These are my five favorites. (Modesty requires that I exclude my own books and other Counter-Currents titles.)

1. Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin, National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy (New York: Pelican, 2018).

As I mentioned in my “Toward a New Nationalism” essay, Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin’s National Populism is a very exciting book. Read more …
