The Death of Anglo-Saxon England

1,820 words

. . . and there was great slaughter on either side. There were killed King Harold, and Earl Leofwine his brother, and Earl Gyrth his brother, and many good men. And the French had possession of the place of slaughter . . .

Education! Education! Education! Part 3

Giorgio de Chirico, La cohorte invincible (1928)

4,425 words

Part 3 of 3 (Part 1 here, Part 2 here)

Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds . . . The purpose of education is to give to the body and to the soul all the beauty and all the perfection of which they are capable . . . If a man neglects education, he walks lame to the end of his life.

–Plato

The European Idea of Progress Supersedes the Axial Age, Part I

Robert N. Bellah, theorist of the Axial Age

3,787 words

Part 1 of 4

Only European peoples have made history and discovered the idea of time, and this is why the idea of progress is uniquely European: Only European history has been characterized by progress, and there can be no conception of historical time and no history without progression or without man becoming conscious of his role in the making of history, as well as the realization that only the mind can be the adjudicator of the truth.

Reality: Ain’t It a BITCH-100

Probably the chairman of a university department somewhere.

1,798 words

The past four months have been a rather hectic round of presentations at scholarly conferences for your favorite ancient Roman rhetorician. This is my main contribution to the movement. I attend scholarly conferences so that the rest of you don’t have to. Also, it’s the best way of doing reconnaissance of the enemy. And even though I’m fairly inured to the nonsense that passes for “humanistic scholarship” these days, sometimes it’s just more than one can stand.

Dean Meredith Raimondo’s Reading List

Dean Meredith Raimondo

1,806 words

It has been quite a week on the legal front for the Dissident Right. In probably the most important legal defeat to date for the radical Left, an Ohio jury has awarded $44 million in compensatory and punitive damages (and legal fees which could add another thirty percent to the $44 million) to the owners of Gibson’s Bakery in their libel lawsuit against Oberlin College and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo. To make matters even sweeter for the bakery (pun intended), it appears that Oberlin’s insurer has already taken legal steps to ensure that the money will not be paid from the college’s general liability policy.

And Then They Came for Ricardo Duchesne

3,102 words

Several years ago, I published a mammoth review essay on Ricardo Duchesne’s The Uniqueness of Western Civilization. I regard it as one of the most interesting and important books I have ever read. Duchesne is a valiant defender of Western civilization against the madness of politically correct academics – and now, it seems, he may be paying the price. Read more …

Redefining Masculinity at Portland State University

1,520 words

I saw the event Redefining Masculinity (April 16, 2019) listed in my local independent weekly. It said the panel discussion would be partially inspired by the documentary The Mask You Live In. I’d never heard of this film, so I found it on YouTube and watched a little of it.

A Conversation with Ricardo Duchesne, Part 2

An idol of the Celtic god of thunder, Taranis, a common deity in the Indo-European pantheons

2,839 words

Part 2 of 3 (Part 1 here, Part 3 here)

Grégoire Canlorbe: Western civilization, originating from the Indo-European heroic ethos, turned out to be both the most creative and Faustian civilization and the most war-ridden and war-dominated one. Islamic civilization has been equally militaristic and expansionist; yet it quickly became frozen and hostile towards innovation and individual genius, despite the fact that praising Muhammad’s heroic lifetime has permeated Islamic societies to this day. How do you explain this duality?

Okay, not really, but John liked a comment in which I stated my intent to do exactly that. Proceed at your own risk.

Michael Sandel’s Anti-White Populist Strategy to Defeat “Right-Wing Populism”

Michael Sandel

1,999 words

The rise of nationalist populism has shaken the globalist establishment far more than the rise of Islamic radicalism did in the 1990s and after. Muslim terrorism merely encouraged globalists to bring more “moderate” Muslims to the West to show undisturbed confidence in the value of diversity. The more Muslims have bombed the West, the more power “moderate” Muslims have gained by way of grants, affirmative action, spread of businesses, regulations against “Islamophobia,” and endless eulogies about their “indispensable” contributions.

Converting Falsehoods into Truth:
Notes on Science, History, & Postmodern Strategies of Control, Part III

Stephen Jay Gould, who taught that Western science is racism.

4,879 words

Part III of III (Part II here)

Punctuated history and continuous narratives of disruption

Stephen Jay Gould’s theory of punctuated equilibrium should not be treated as an isolated scientific theory whose author believed it to be the most defensible assessment of existing facts. It should rather be recognized as part of a larger rhetorical effort to reform the philosophy of history which predicates the received historical notions upon which the social and political intuitions of white Westerners are contingent.

Converting Falsehoods into Truth:
Notes on Science, History, & Postmodern Strategies of Control, Part II

Samuel Morton, who established the brain sizes of the various races

5,371 words

Part II of III (Part I here, Part III here)

The unavoidability of “presentism” and the foil of “triumphalism”

Despite Chesterton’s war with the evils of his day, the modern cult of the present is sustained by a particular condition, whose nature is a mutating subject with internal logics to which the Dissident Right should keep itself attentive. To this end, it is worth considering how modern academics understand their impulse to give disproportionate causal agency to the present. Read more …

Converting Falsehoods into Truth:

Part I of III (Part II here)

3,104 words

My last article received some critical feedback from a rather dedicated individual commenter. From what I could tell, his key concern was that any Right-wing intellectual movement was not worth the label if it could not normatively recognize that the intellectual work of postmodernist and critical theorists is lazy, unidimensional, and degenerate.

Postmodernism on the Right:
A Case for Adopting Deconstructing as a Tool

Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfurt School speaking to student protesters in Berlin in 1967.

4,918 words

One of the realities that must be recognized by the Dissident Right, particularly in the Anglophone world, is that that those modes of thought and analysis broadly encapsulated by terms like postmodernism, critical theory, or the Frankfurt School are not inherently “Left-wing.” Collectively and individually, they are not inherently anything other than a means to an end.

The Counter-Currents 2018 Fundraiser
Bubble Boys

1,119 words

According to standard Left-wing boilerplate, White Nationalists like me don’t speak or write; we “spew.” We don’t “spew” ideas, arguments, and facts. We spew “hate.” This hate, moreover, does not spread from mind to mind because it rationally convinces people. Instead, its propagation is “virulent,” like Ebola. When a mind virus is spreading, one does not refute it by appeals to facts and arguments. Instead, you have to contain it. You have to quarantine the carriers, like me, so they can’t infect other people. In short, you need censorship.

An Open Letter to White Students at Drexel University

2,734 words

Do you believe that you have the right to exist? Drexel University does not. This is one of the lessons from the recent furor that erupted after one of the school’s professors tweeted, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.” By now you’ve probably heard something about it, but for those who have not, let me reiterate the details.

Assistant Professor George Ciccariello-Maher sent out that tweet on Christmas Eve. Then, on Christmas Day, he tweeted, “To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian revolution, that was a good thing indeed.” Read more …
