On Gavin McInnes & the Alt Light

2,064 words

Recently, Gavin McInnes, our friend over at Taki’s Magazine, helpfully released a video entitled “What is the Alt Right?” In it, he does a pretty good job of describing who (or what) most of us are, dividing us into the “Alt Light,” the “Alt Right,” and everyone else. Read more …

The Weaponized Nonsense of George Lakoff

1,446 words

Sometimes you read a newspaper column that starts off so pointlessly and insipidly you can’t tell whether it’s supposed to be a parody of bad writing, or the writer just wants to introduce a humorous idea but can’t find the right hook to hang it on. This happened a few days ago (April 10) in The Washington Post, with a column by one Steven Petrow. Read more …

There Is Nothing the Alt Right Can Do about the Effeminacy of White Men

Cato the Elder: The Face of Rising Rome

2,617 words

Some white men are identifying with the Alt Right as they realize that the goals and norms celebrated by our social order are underpinned by multiple deceptions, suppression of debate, anti-scientific notions about human equality, and unjust opposition to white identity Read more …

Welcome to the League of Shadows!

2,494 words

This essay was originally a talk delivered to The New York Forum on Sunday, March 26, 2017.

I had an interesting conversation the other night with an old friend of mine who has been involved in one way or another with our movement since he was in high school. We were discussing the dramatic changes that have taken place in just the last several years. Read more …

Whose Jane Austen is It, Anyway?

Mock ad by Michael O’Donoghue & George W. S. Trow, 1971 National Lampoon

2,215 words

For the past couple of weeks there’s been a lot of media blather about how the novelist Jane Austen is an icon of the Alt Right. The distress this causes Leftist critics has been a thing of high comedy and low hysteria.

If you haven’t been keeping up, I review some articles immediately below. Otherwise, feel free to skip about halfway down, where I get into matters of cultural appropriation and Austen sex roles. Read more …

Alt Right versus New Right

Alt Right meets New Right: John Morgan with Alain de Benoist at the 2013 NPI conference.

3,873 words (Greek translation here; Hungarian translation here)

The following is the text of the talk that John Morgan was scheduled to deliver at Identitarian Ideas IX in Stockholm last Saturday, but was unable to due to circumstances beyond his control. As such it was intended for a primarily Swedish audience.

Today I want to talk about two schools of political thought that on the surface seem similar, but that are in fact quite different in a number of fundamental ways: namely the Alt Right and the European New Right. Read more …

Milo-lita: More Musings on Milo

2,948 words

Writers like myself have to be careful when addressing famous figures currently associated with the Alt Right. While I contribute as well as I can, offering insights, ideas, and disseminating information from the sidelines, what I do pales in comparison to what the movement’s leaders and central figures contribute. It is mostly out of gratitude and humility that I refrain from making critical comments about these people. Read more …

A Response to an Insightful Comment

1,664 words

One of the scariest moments when playing chess is when you spot a weakness in your own position which you can only hope your opponent doesn’t see. All you can do is wait and pray that he doesn’t move his bishop there or his queen there because that would convert what is already a difficult circumstance for you into a desperate one. Read more …

A Place for Women in the Alt Right

1,434 words

It’s no secret that historically, men have harnessed intelligence, drive, pride, and anger to lead and conquer, while women have been empathetic supporting characters who provide vital biological services. For the most part, it’s a model that works, and Alt Right arguments for traditional female roles are legitimate: there’s tremendous value in having women devoted to raising many healthy, happy, stable children amidst a well-tended home.

Has the Alt Lite Embraced the [North American] New Right?

1,200 words

The following is reprinted from Atlantic Centurion.

Since the Alt Right tends to be a little extreme for the average pro-Trump blogger or supplements salesman, the loose collection of civic nationalists and cultural libertarians we’ve taken to calling the Alt Lite or Alt RINOs has started grasping for a label to give itself. Read more …
