2,246 words

Richard Lynn
Race Differences in Psychopathic Personality: An Evolutionary Analysis
Augusta, Ga.: Washington Summit Publishers, 2019

Herrnstein and Murray’s The Bell Curve (1994) demonstrated that racial differences in rates of social pathology in the United States – including crime, poverty, long-term unemployment, out of wedlock births, and welfare dependency – can in part be explained by differences in average intelligence.

An Alt-Right Constitution?

1,370 words

John E. Finn
Fracturing the Founding: How the Alt-Right Corrupts the Constitution
Lanham, Md.: Rowman & Littlefield, 2019

The first thing to understand about this polemical work is that it has very little to do with the Alt Right.

A Globalist Struggles to Explain the Failure of Globalism

1,483 words

Ian Bremmer
Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism
Portfolio/Penguin, 2018

Glancing through the blurbs on the back of Ian Bremmer’s new bestseller, one finds the Secretary-General of the UN, a managing director of the IMF, a co-chairman of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the President of the International Rescue Committee, and Larry Summers: not a lineup one would expect to find endorsing a bold challenge to conventional thinking.

The Eternal Nazi

Charles Krafft, The Cross Wasn’t Heavy

1,165 words

Translated from Finis Germania by F. Roger Devlin

There are still myths and there are still taboos. Nudity and sexual practices of all sorts are no longer among them, any more than good old-fashioned blasphemy. The Christian God, for example, can be abused at pleasure without the slightest consequences. One taboo, however, remains immoveable: anti-Semitism. Read more …

The Scandza Forum, April 7, 2018

1,197 words

On Saturday, April 7th, I attended the third Scandza Forum in Stockholm, Sweden. This was my third Scandza Forum, and fourth visit to Sweden. The theme of this conference was “normalizing nationalism.”

I had a while before the first speech to talk with other attendees, and during this time I grabbed a couple of notepads and a pen. I met familiar faces, including a few friends, and was impressed as usual by the quality of the Swedish nationalists. Read more …

The Epic of Human Evolution:
Johannes V. Jensen’s The Long Journey

Johannes V. Jensen

4,932 words

Johannes V. Jensen cannot be called a forgotten writer — he won the Nobel Prize in Literature for 1944 and is still remembered in his native Denmark — yet his name will probably be unfamiliar to most of my readers. He was born in 1873, the second of eleven children of a veterinary surgeon in the village of Farsø in Northern Jutland. To help finance his medical studies at the University of Copenhagen, he began writing “cliffhanger” newspaper serials. After three years, he switched to full-time writing and journalism.  Read more …

Identitarian Ideas VIII

img_0185Despite living near Sweden (Estonia) and being in good terms with many Swedish nationalists, this year was my first to visit the annual conference of Identitarian Ideas (Identitär Ide). I went to the conference together with three other Estonian nationalists from the youth movement Blue Awakening (Sinine Äratus), closely affiliated with the Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (EKRE). The conference was also attended by four Latvians from the country’s main nationalist party National Alliance, as well as some like-minded Poles.  Read more …
