Scientific Truth, Scientific Pragmatism, & Human History

4,585 words

An important question for those on the Dissident Right to ask is how humans ought to relate to nature; both their own “human nature” as well as the “outside” world. Depending on one’s religious beliefs, this might be the most important question there is. History seems to indicate two conventional approaches to this question. Read more …

The “Revolutionary Vanguard” Trap

1,776 words

Right-wingers often say they want to create an “elite” revolutionary vanguard.

This would supposedly attract the best and brightest of our society in order to overthrow it. This elite would be smarter, more dedicated, more athletic, and possibly better-looking than the cattle they wish to rule. “We’re attracting quality, not quantity! Elites, not the masses!” is the eternal response to those who doubt this strategy. Read more …

Tribal Denialism

1,615 words

Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past five years, you’ve probably heard about the “dangerous” return of tribalism.

Before 2015 (or before Obama, depending on the source), Americans didn’t put themselves in tribes. They only saw red, white and blue. Everyone was judged as an individual. Civility and decency reigned supreme. Race relations and gender relations were all just fine. Americans were one nation, under God and indivisible. Read more …

I’m Changing My Tune About Coronavirus

1,420 words

The coronavirus pandemic is a complex and changing phenomenon, and so are my thoughts about it.

I can sympathize with the ecologists who think that the Earth has far too many humans and would welcome a pandemic to dramatically reduce our numbers. But not yet. This is not the time, because coronavirus isn’t the killer they’ve been hoping for, and as a member of a race that is already on the path to extinctionRead more …

How Coronavirus Will Change the World

1,682 words

Coronavirus is going to change the world. I just hope that I live to see it, along with the people I care about.

I call the Coronavirus the “Globalvirus,” because globalism is the underlying condition that made it all possible.

Reaction is Best Served Cold

1,108 words

As the old Sicilian saying goes: don’t get angry — get even.

I believe that everyone reading is familiar with the idea that revenge is a dish best served cold. Rage makes us stupid; anger drives us to make mistakes, waltz into traps set by our enemies, and go on embarrassing rants Read more …

Remembering Richard M. Weaver:
March 3, 1910–April 1, 1963

Richard M. Weaver

671 words

America wasn’t always a liberal country. The founders drew more upon classical republicanism than liberalism. In the nineteenth century, the populist movement was decidedly anti-liberal. But the founders and the populists were never consistently anti-liberal, because consistency is the province of intellectuals, not statesmen.

America never had a genuinely anti-liberal intellectual movement until the Southern Agrarians of the 1920s and 1930s. (The North American New Right is America’s second anti-liberal intellectual movement.) Read more …

No Greeks or Germans Allowed:
Yoram Hazony’s Anglo-Hebrew Nationalism

Horatio Greenough, George Washington

1,547 words

Israeli scholar Yoram Hazony wants to define nationalism for the entire West.

And that nationalism leaves no room for our classical heritage.

Counter-Currents readers are probably familiar with Hazony, his book The Virtue of Nationalism, and his “National Conservatism” conferences. Greg Johnson’s recent series on Hazony’s book is recommended (parts one, two, three, and four).

This essay covers another aspect of the Israeli political theorist: Read more …

Aborting Steve King

Rep. Steve King

1,592 words

Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King is in serious trouble again. This time, it has nothing to do with race or immigration; it’s over sex and abortion. Like most of King’s comments, it revealed an uncomfortable truth, but it upheld a foolish position that the Right should avoid.

You may recall King as the Congressman who often makes BASED Boomer comments. Read more …

Conservatives Show Their True, Pathetic Colors After El Paso

George P. Bush thinks that war needs to be declared on White Nationalism.

1,472 words

“Crush White Nationalist evil!” is the conservative answer to the El Paso shooting.

The overwhelming majority of conservatives have called for the government to treat White Nationalism like Islamic terror. Logically, this would mean drone strikes against American Renaissance conferences. But the conservatives who advocate for this drastic action are self-aware enough not to go that far – they just want the government to censor speech they call racist.

Darryl Cooper: I want to get into a few other questions.

Darryl Cooper: Something that you just said, definitely it’s something I’ve observed.

And I think there was probably some justice to that stereotype. Read more …

Co-Opted Nationalism

2,057 words

Racial nationalists were banned from attending Yoram Hazony’s National Conservatism Conference, which aimed to offer a race-free nationalism (except for Jewish ethnonationalists, of course). The opening speech delivered by David Brog, the non-Christian former head of Christians United for Israel, declared racialists were unwelcome. Hazony spent weeks before the conference arguing with identitarians that nationalism has nothing to do with race. The Israeli scholar boasted that racialists would suffer a crushing defeat from the success of his conference.

A New & Improved Conservatism?

Sohrab Ahmari

1,898 words

A curious debate erupted within American conservatism last week.

New York Post opinion editor Sohrab Ahmari took aim at Conservative Inc. foolishness, which he dubs “David French-ism,” in a First Things essay. Ahmari, a Persian Catholic convert, argues French-ism makes conservative Christians surrender to the awe-inspiring power of secular liberalism. Read more …

Turning Point Trumpism

Charlie Kirk at CPAC, where a cardboard flat = truth in advertising

1,743 words

Another CPAC has come and gone, and national populism was almost non-existent at this year’s conservative gala.

Even though Donald Trump became president on a national populist agenda that challenged conservative orthodoxy on immigration, foreign policy, trade, and state power, CPAC 2019 offered the impression he won on the stale conservatism of Ronald Reagan.

The major themes of CPAC 2019 were the evils of socialism (but no mention of why it’s becoming popular), the sheer awesomeness of Israel, Read more …
