An Alternative Kind of Deplatforming

Naomi Wu

1,082 words

Recently, Naomi Wu’s story was brought to my attention on Twitter by Hank Oslo of the Myth of the 20th Century podcast. Naomi Wu is a tech adept from the People’s Republic of China (PRC), living in Shenzhen. She does a bit of coding, but mainly focuses on building gadgetry, and she has invented things such as LED display hats that project images over your face to help circumvent the face detection software that has become ubiquitous in the urbanized parts of the rather autocratic PRC.

Cioran, Germany, & Hitler

1,761 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: The following are excerpts from the preface to a collection of early articles by Emil Cioran translated from Romanian into French. I found this very interesting concerning the young Cioran’s embrace of fascism as embodying the “barbarism” he considered necessary to halt decadence. I have broken up some of the paragraphs.

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.

Those Who Deliberately Won’t See

1,170 words

Bird Box (2018)
Directed by Susanne Bier
Starring Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, & John Malkovich

Netflix’s 2018 movie Bird Box is a hit. The movie has had more than forty million viewers in its first weeks, and its images have led to a host of Internet memes from clever keyboard jokers. The movie is a standard apocalypse film – man versus the supernatural – but there are some twists. Read more …

This Little Piggy Saves None

James Brown’s 1990 mug shot.

2,591 words

I tell you, it hit me like a lead hammer. Knocked the wind right out of me. I sure wasn’t expecting that when I went to Facebook the day after Martin Luther King Day I’d find that several of my friends had posted laudatory bits in tribute to the serial plagiarizing, serial fornicating commie. I can’t get over it. I’m totally bummed out.

The State of European Populism

Viktor Orbán & Matteo Salvini

3,863 words

Since the American Alt Right fell apart, many commentators and outlets which formerly identified as “Alt Right” have started pointing towards European populism as an example to follow, and are often heard to say that the nationalist cause is much further ahead in Europe. As a European, I would like to comment on this, based on the Dutch populist movement, which is relatively strong for a Western European country. Read more …

Italy, Mussolini, & Fascism

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: This has been retranslated from a French translation. I have improved the paragraphing. The title is editorial.

Russia: An Exemplar of Christian Nationalism?

Volunteers from the Young Medics of Russia organization make a red ribbon as part of the worldwide campaign against AIDS in Rostov-on-Don.

1,391 words

Many on the Right seem to think that Christian nationalism is the path forward for our movement. They look to Hungary, Poland, and Russia as evidence that putting Christian identity at the forefront of our cause is the best way to attract the masses and restore white civilization to its rightful glory.

The Social Justice Warrior as Nascent Totalitarian

632 words

Memetic discourse is historically unique, but there is a striking similarity between Social Justice Warrior (SJW) discourse and the totalitarian discourse of past eras. Political rhetoric in totalitarian societies is narrow and circular; everything that is said is just a reiteration of what’s already been said. Any original or nuanced thought in a totalitarian society is crushed or weeded out. Read more …

The Importance of Believing:
Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather

2,563 words

The late British novelist Terry Pratchett (1948-2015) was mainly known for his Discworld series of comic fantasy novels, of which one of the most popular, Hogfather, was made into a BBC miniseries in 2006. Pratchett was a secular humanist, but did not share the unfortunate belief of some atheists that there is something shameful about faith itself. Instead, with Hogfather, he valorizes the struggle between belief and fantasy – which he casts as necessary parts of being human – and a cold, mechanical, and unimaginative worldview. Read more …

Butchering Cultured Meat

2,701 words

A Perfectly Neutral Auschwitz

I heard the enemy dinner-call. So I walked to UPenn for a talk on Cultured Meat. Having apprenticed in my dad’s butcher shop, I don’t relate to clinically strained beef. I have natural tastes. True flavors.

If, under siege in the Techno-Apocalypse, I was cannibalized by starving pals? The sorry chef would eulogize. Read more …

Houellebecq on Love

552 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: I discovered these reflections nestled between some pornographic scenes in Michel Houellebecq’s recently published novel, Sérotonine (Paris: Flammarion, 2019), pp. 70-72.

It is perhaps necessary at this point to provide a few clarifications on love, largely aimed at women, because women don’t really understand what love is for men. Read more …

Martin Luther King, Establishment Icon

Martin Luther King with Nelson Rockefeller in 1961.

3,603 words

Every year, the third Monday of January is designated Martin Luther King Day, and the much-lauded paragon of “passive resistance” and “equality” is praised to high heaven with the aura of sainthood, or even godhood, perhaps only equalled by his South African counterpart, Nelson Mandela. I will not argue here whether desegregation has improved anyone’s lot, blacks included, any more than the dismantling of apartheid did, other than its having intended to create an “inclusive economy,” as the Rockefeller Foundation and others call it, and an expanded consumption market.

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King marching with Rabbi Abraham Heschel at a Vietnam War protest in Washington, DC in 1968.

3,287 words

There are few displays of ethnomasochism and xenophilia more perverse than that of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – a day in January when white and black alike are meant to remember this hero of the Civil Rights era and to reflect on how far we have come as a country. MLK Day is an odd holiday to me, since it is as if the Byzantines had set aside a day to celebrate the heroism of Mehmed II, or some other Ottoman Sultan. Perhaps this analogy gives Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) far too much credit. Read more …

Cioran:
Aesthete of Despair

Emil Cioran

495 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note:

The following is Alain Soral’s negative assessment of Emil Cioran, as contained in his “dictionary” of aphorisms. While this appraisal is not exactly fair, the text expresses some understandable frustration with the nihilist Cioran and gives one a sense of the oppressive atmosphere, for Right-wingers, of the postwar French literary scene.

Masterpieces of Aryan Thought 4
Ezra Pound’s Guide to Kulchur

985 words

Ezra Pound’s Guide to Kulchur (1938) is one of those unfortunate great books (think Spengler’s Decline of the West and any book by Henry Adams) that is often mentioned but seldom read. The book was meant as a guide to the essential philosophy, art, economics, history, and ethics from Confucius to the 20th century as uniquely interpreted by Pound.

This and the ABC of Reading (1934) constituted the core texts of the “Ezra-versity,” the informal seminars that Pound held before World War II for those acolytes who came to visit him in Rapallo, Italy. Read more …

Fukuyama on Diversity

3,282 words

Francis Fukuyama’s latest book Identity was written to forestall the rise of Right-wing identity politics, but, as I argued in “Fukuyama on Identity Politics,” the book is actually very useful to White Nationalists because it concedes a number of our basic premises while offering weak reasons to resist our ultimate political conclusions. This is especially apparent in his discussion of diversity.

Remembering Jack London:
January 12, 1876–November 22, 1916

467 words

Spanish version here

Jack London was born John Griffith Chaney in San Francisco on January 12, 1876. An adventurer and Jack of all trades in his youth, London achieved fame and fortune as a fiction writer and journalist. But he never forgot his working class roots and remained a life-long advocate of workers’ rights, unionism, and revolutionary socialism. (See his essay “What Life Means to Me.”)

Mortal Engines & Broken Humanists

2,355 words

Mortal Engines is an action-adventure yarn spanning four books by teen fiction author Philip Reeve, first published in 2001. With the recent box-office flop of the movie adaptation, it’s an opportune time to share some thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of this enduringly popular quartet. I first read Mortal Engines and its sequels (Predator’s Gold, Infernal Devices, and A Darkling Plain) in my mid-teens, and haven’t picked them up since, so the following is entirely from a decade’s worth of offhand contemplation.

Goodbye Mister White Guy

2,207 words

There is a general feeling of malaise among native European communities. I was unaware of this as a child, or perhaps it just didn’t exist yet, as I was also unaware of it as a young adult. But now I am sensitive to it, and certainly sensitive to reflecting on my past experiences with fresh eyes, and this will be such a reflection.

American Sardaukar

Lance Corporal James Blake Miller, USMC, during the Second Battle of Fallujah in November 2004.

2,608 words

I don’t even have to check the comment section of Éordred’s excellent “Der Fall Amerika” to know that there’s going to be more than one claiming a variation of “not all Americans are like that.” I know this because this was at the back of my mind while reading it, and because, of course, not all Americans are like that.
