Australian Artists of the Right
Norman Lindsay, Part II

6,247 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1)

Homosexuality not conducive to creativity

Norman rejected the faddish view that homosexuality is associated with the creative individual. He regarded homosexuality as “destructive” to the creative impulse, which is based on unisexuality. He stated that the male homosexual is dominated by a split of either all-male or all-female:

6,784 words

Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)

Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879-1969) was the brother of Lionel Lindsay, recently profiled at Counter-Currents. Like his brother, Norman excelled in a variety of artistic media.

The Tyrannical Essence of Liberalism

Megyn Kelly & Don Lemon in happier times. One still has a career.

1,167 words

The problem that arises when you’re the greatest nation in the history of the world is that there’s no real problems to deal with. There’s no war. Anybody who wants a job can get one. Nobody starves to death. Everybody has access to medical care. Even beggars can make six figures a year.

But happily ever after breeds complacency. Once people get what they want, they tend to want something else. So, if life is good, and there’s no legitimate problems in paradise, abstract ones are created in La-La Land. Read more …

Video of the Day
Jonathan Bowden on Absolute Standards

54 words / 7:36

A video made to accompany some excerpts from talks by Jonathan Bowden on the subject of the power of belief. We are hardwired for philosophical and religious belief, but as a society, many white people have a severe lack of it. Bowden talks about Nietzsche, nature, mental strengthening, and the absence of belief.

Evola’s Nietzschean Ethics:
A Code of Conduct for the Higher Man in Kali Yuga

5,808 words

The subtitle of the English translation of Julius Evola’s Ride the Tiger (Cavalcare la Tigre) promises that it offers “A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul.”[1] As a result, one comes to the work with the expectation that it will constitute a kind of “self-help book” for Traditionalists, for “men against time.” Read more …

Zardoz: Natural Order Against the Left

2,482 words

John Boorman’s films are implicitly white, as they address themes that pertain to people of white European descent, whether historical, philosophical, or mythical. For the latter, an example would be the film Excalibur that I recently reviewed. Zardoz is a film that addresses the philosophical. This is another of Boorman’s films that the critic Roger Ebert neither understands nor cares for – and I suspect more the latter, for the film is a biting satire directed at creamy bourgeois Leftists.

Poznámky k nihilismu

3,758 slov

English original here

Často se říká, že nihilismus je jednou z nejvýraznějších charakteristik naší moderní doby – co to ale vlastně nihilismus vůbec je? Nihilismus znamená cosi jako „smrt“ Boha, popření objektivního smyslu a hodnot, rozostření morálních kategorií a hierarchií, rozklad společného světa na individuální náhledy i společné kultury do subjektivních „osobních preferencí.“ Read more …

Politický voják:
Teorie partyzána Carla Schmitta

Hermann Löns, Der Werwolf (dřevoryt Hans Pape)

3,579 slov

English original here

Civilizující génius evropského člověka byl tak mocný, že se mu na čas podařilo zkrotit dokonce i válku samotnou. Ne každou válku lze ale vybojovat civilizovaně – jen ty mezi civilizovanými evropskými státy. Pravidla svazující válku se nevztahovala na války proti nestátním subjektům, jako v případě koloniálních válek proti divochům, občanské války a revoluce, v nichž se ocitá v sázce samotný stát, či nepravidelná válka proti partyzánům a guerillám, kterým se zabývá Schmittovo dílko Teorie partyzána (1962). 1] Read more …

Why We Are So Good Looking

Frank Franz of Germany’s NPD

1,637 words

A recent study in the Journal of Public Economics draws a conclusion we arrived at a long time ago: Right-Wingers are better looking than Leftists. Researchers conducted several experiments, one of which involved showing subjects photos of various politicians and political candidates: members of the European Parliament, U.S. gubernatorial and congressional candidates, candidates for the Australian House of Representatives, etc. Read more …

Beauty & Destruction in Yukio Mishima’s The Temple of the Golden Pavilion

2,042 words

In 1950, the Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji) in Kyoto was burned to the ground by a young monk. The temple had been built in the fourteenth century and was the finest example of the architecture of the Muromachi period. Covered in gold leaf and crowned with a copper-gold phoenix, it projected an image of majesty and serene beauty. It had been designated a National Treasure in 1897 and was considered a national symbol in Japan. Read more …

Ditching the Black Pill;
Or, How I Freed Myself from the Shekel

869 words

As of late, many in the movement have been both advocating and adopting the deleterious philosophy of the so-called “Black Pill.” Those held in thrall by the nihilistic tendrils of the “Black Pill” ideology posit that — quite bluntly — hope is futile, change a fleeting mirage, and White racial preservation improbable.

An Infamous Past: E. M. Cioran and the Rise of Fascism in Romania
Chicago: Ivan R. Dee, 2005

‘The Romanians, what have they ever done for us, eh?’ So might Emil Cioran, himself a Romanian, have wondered when he wrote his third book The Transfiguration of Romania, published in 1936. Bewailing Romania’s insignificant past and culture, he proposed a program that would transform the country in parallel with the contemporary national revivals in Germany and Italy then underway.

Viking Supermen

2,272 words

Viking — the word itself still conjures up the stereotypical image of bloodthirsty blonde barbarians, whose rage can only be sated by acts of pillage and rapine. Fortunately, this dated historical perspective has been somewhat revised, and establishment historians now tacitly acknowledge that Norse civilization was much more complex than previously thought, and a lot less one-dimensional.
