Columbus Day Special
The Autochthony Argument

prisoner-atlas

Michelangelo, Unfinished Slave

2,115 words

Translations: FrenchSpanish

One of the perennial accusations against white colonial societies around the globe—in the Americas, Africa, and the Antipodes—is that they are morally illegitimate because other people were there first. This is what I call the “autochthony argument,” from the Greek “αὐτόχθων,” meaning “springing from the land,” i.e., indigenous.  According to this argument, the original inhabitants of a land are its rightful owners (“finders-keepers”), and it is a violation of these rights for other peoples to displace them.

“I’m Irish, Not White”

1,425 words

Majority-minority America will not be kind to whites. Whiteness will mark you as a second-class citizen, a blot on your soul that excludes you from affirmative action and social respect. Ambitious social climbers will pretend they are non-white or cling to another protected class status to get out of their Caucasian hell.

Signs of this nightmarish future are already present. Plenty of whites claim they’re something else to achieve sacred victimhood. Read more …

Decline of the West, Part 5

Part 5 of 7 (Part 1 here, Part 4 here, Part 6 here)

Darryl Cooper: I want to ask you a little bit about the United States specifically. Your most recent post on Counter-Currents was a remembrance of Francis Parker Yockey, who’s best-known for his first book Imperium, and as a title that implies he advocated a pan-European empire. There are thinkers on the Alt Right today, like Richard Spencer, who advocate some form of this. Read more …

For My Ethno Guys

Definitely not an ethno guy.

1,722 words

Ever catch abuse from somebody famous? It’s not fun.

Last year, a fairly edgy and well-known conservative writer took me to task for something I had written. Amid all the sophomoric profanity and abuse (he addressed me with “Hey Dipshit,” and his message went downhill from there), he did something interesting. He sneeringly called me an “ethno guy,” as in, “What is it with you ethno guys . . . ?” As in, only a dipshit would ever consider being an “ethno guy.”

On Ethnonationalism, Religion, & Common Sense

1,691 words

In the debate about Christianity and ethnonationalism it is too often forgotten that Christianity is a religion and not a political or cultural doctrine. Religion is coeval with man and its function is to mediate between the soul and the divine, Read more …

Technological Utopianism & Ethnic Nationalism

2,904 words

Author’s Note:

This is the text of my talk at the fourth meeting of the Scandza Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark, on September 15, 2018. In my previous Scandza Forum talk, I argued that we need to craft ethnonationalist messages for all white groups, even Trekkies. This is my Epistle to the Trekkies. I want to thank everybody who was there, and everybody who made the Forum possible.  Read more …

Notes on Revolution in Chuck Palahniuk’s Adjustment Day

1,088 words

Chuck Palahniuk’s Adjustment Day is a highly imaginative and entertaining novel that reflects a long and deep immersion in the online world of White Nationalism, from the best of it to the worst and all shades in between.

I don’t have much to add to the reviews of Adjustment Day by Jef Costello and James O’Meara, so I wish to focus here on some of Palahniuk’s thoughts about how an ethnonationalist revolution might occur, and how it might go wrong.  Read more …

Valkoisuus

2,476  words

Suomentanut Timo Hännikäinen; English original here

Yksi ilmeinen tapa hyökätä valkoista nationalismia vastaan on väittää, että itse valkoisuuden käsite on ongelmallinen. Käsittelen nyt neljää sellaista vastaväitettä. Ensiksi, valkoisuuden käsitettä pidetään poliittisesti tarpeettomana. Toiseksi, valkoisuuden oletetaan kumoavan etnisen identiteetin. Kolmanneksi, valkoisuuden väitetään olevan sosiaalinen konstruktio, ei luonnollinen kategoria. Read more …

Video of the Day
Greg Johnson on the Driving Force of History

56 words / 6:25

What is the foundation of the political? What is the basis for ethnic nationalism? Greg Johnson talks about the concept of thumos, us and them, the natural preference for one’s own over strangers, and where the rejection of these ideas leads us. Excerpts are used from “What’s Wrong With Cosmopolitanism?” and Laura Raim’s interview with Greg.

An Open Letter to Vox Day

2,260 words

Dear Vox,

Regarding your recent Darkstream entitled “White Supremacy, White Nationalism, and Other Fictions,” I’m finding myself having to infer what your position is on a number of topics. In this letter, I’ll explain why I remain confused on some of them so you can set me straight if you care to. I’d like to also further certain aspects of the discussion because I believe the Darkstream format—with your speaking more or less extemporaneously while fielding questions— Read more …

Whiteness

3,352 words

Translation: Finnish, Ukrainian

An obvious line of attack against White Nationalism is the claim that the very concept of whiteness is problematic. I wish to deal with four such objections. First, the concept of whiteness is supposed to be politically unnecessary. Second, whiteness is alleged to be subversive of ethnic identity. Third, whiteness is said to be a social construct, not a real natural kind. Fourth, the viability of White Nationalism is said to depend on an airtight definition of whiteness, which is elusive.  Read more …

Towards a New European Palingenesis

Pentti Linkola

2,392 words

The hallmark of all revolutionary ideologies has been the forlorn attempt to create a “New Man.” Like Pygmalion, this “New Man” takes on the characteristics of whatever political ideology is currently en vogue. For want of a better, meta-historical term, the so-called “Right” has enjoyed marginally more success in this endeavor than other revolutionary movements. Read more …

Az európai harci szellem

A szerző megjegyzése

Az alábbi beszédet 2018. április 8-án Helsinkiben az első alkalommal megrendezett Ébredés Konferencián adtam elő. A szervezők arra kértek, hogy az európai harci szellemről beszéljek. Szokás szerint kicsit improvizáltam, és eltértem az előkészített szövegtől. Szeretnék köszönetet mondani a szervezőknek, a találkozó mintegy 200 résztvevőjének, és annak a Counter-Currents olvasónak, akinek az adománya lehetővé tette, hogy a konferenciára utazzak.

Author’s Note:

This is the text of my talk from the first Awakening Conference, which was held in Helsinki on April 8, 2018. The topic I was asked to speak on was the European fighting spirit. As usual, I improvised a bit and departed from my prepared text.

Proč „bělošský“ nacionalismus?

Edward Wadsworth, Dazzle-ships in Drydock at Liverpool, 1919

1,059 slov

English original here

Proč se nazývám bělošským nacionalistou? Jako Američanovi evropského původu mi v prvé řadě záleží na přežití mé rasy – jak na americkém kontinentu, tak i ve zbytku světa.  Ve všech bělošských zemích dnes umírá více bělochů, než se jich rodí a naše lidi nahrazují velice plodní Neevropané. Nedojde-li ke zvratu tohoto vývoje, naše rasa fyzicky vyhyne. Jak už jsem ukázal jinde, nejlepší cestou k naší záchraně je vytvoření homogenních bělošských zemí s politikou na podporu porodnosti a aplikací eugeniky. Read more …
