Crystal Castles

1,719 words

Crystal Castles is a Canadian band, initially consisting of singer Alice Glass and producer Ethan Kath. The two met each other because of their mutual connections in the large and prolific Toronto music scene, and collaborated on one track, the chaotic “Alice Practice,” as a mere experiment. The two never intended to form a full-time group Read more …

What Else Would We Have?

Charles Henry Niehaus’ Nathan Bedford Forrest, when it was still in Health Sciences Park.

1,084 words

Here we go again.

Renowned Civil War General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife’s remains are in the process of being removed from the Health Sciences Park in Memphis.

We can thank the activist Left for going the extra mile to defend us from such dangerous artifacts of American history. Nothing screams “the civil rights battle of our time” like knocking down monuments and exhuming corpses of evil, racist white men. Read more …

Constantinople (Not Istanbul)

2,052 words

One fascinating conundrum I have been dealing with for years juxtaposes Istanbul/Constantinople the city with “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” the song. I cannot plumb the depths of this since, on one hand, the fall of Constantinople on May 29th, 1453 (today is the 567th anniversary) was a sheer catastrophe for the West — be it for Christendom or for the white race, however you want to look at it.

The Best Man’s Divorce Speech

Detail, The Divorce of Empress Josephine in 1809, Henri Frédéric Schopin, 1843.

1,604 words

One of the best memories I have is giving the best man’s speech at my best friend’s wedding. I gave that speech 14 years ago and my friend has been married ever since with three great kids. Unfortunately, I have also known men who have lost their property, money, and custody of their children from devastating divorces. Read more …

Objective Fictions & Subjective Realities:
The Need for a Nationalist Postmodernism

5,724 words

Perhaps the best way to think about “postmodernism” from the Right is not as a problematic philosophical tradition, but as a philosophical tradition with a problem. On the one hand, “postmodernism” may be loosely defined as a philosophical turn that delegitimized traditional aesthetic and moral standards, and “deconstructed” seemingly self-evident categories like ethnicity and culture. On the other hand, it could also be defined as a school of thought which delegitimized the scientific, materialist, Read more …

All the News Fit to Forget

Samuel T. Francis.

1,585 words

Have you ever heard of Drew Pearson? I grew up in the 1970s and 80s and vaguely remember a football player by that name. But a different Drew Pearson (1897-1969) was mentioned briefly in Wilmot Roberson’s classic The Dispossessed Majority (1972). I had never heard of him, but according to Robertson, his columns were once syndicated in 650 newspapers — twice as many as any other columnist at that time. Read more …

Columbus Day Special
Life Styles: Native & Imposed

2,850 words

For decades now, African American leaders have been calling for a formal United States apology for the American role in the slave trade, with some even demanding reparations. Indian tribes proclaim their tax-exempt status as something they are owed for a legacy of persecution by the United States. Mexican Americans in the southwest United States seek to incorporate this region, including California, into Mexico, or even to set up an independent nation, Aztlan, that will recreate the glories of the Aztec empire, destroyed centuries ago by the imperialistic Spaniards.  Read more …

Converting Falsehoods into Truth:
Notes on Science, History, & Postmodern Strategies of Control, Part III

Stephen Jay Gould, who taught that Western science is racism.

4,879 words

Part III of III (Part II here)

Punctuated history and continuous narratives of disruption

Stephen Jay Gould’s theory of punctuated equilibrium should not be treated as an isolated scientific theory whose author believed it to be the most defensible assessment of existing facts. It should rather be recognized as part of a larger rhetorical effort to reform the philosophy of history which predicates the received historical notions upon which the social and political intuitions of white Westerners are contingent.

Part II of III (Part I here, Part III here)

The unavoidability of “presentism” and the foil of “triumphalism”

Despite Chesterton’s war with the evils of his day, the modern cult of the present is sustained by a particular condition, whose nature is a mutating subject with internal logics to which the Dissident Right should keep itself attentive. To this end, it is worth considering how modern academics understand their impulse to give disproportionate causal agency to the present. Read more …

How Power Invented Individualism

5,109 words

The recent online debates between Alt Righters and various classical liberal dissidents have resulted in a a string of victories for our side. In fact, the opposition has at times appeared too flimsy to be taken seriously. Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad) has been ridiculed for nitpicking his way through his debate with Richard Spencer, then responding to criticism by placing the paper crown of the ‘liberalists’ upon his head; and even the more erudite Tarl Warwick (Styxhexenhammer666) could do little more than throw ‘what ifs’ at Greg Johnson’s case for an ethnostateRead more …

Aby zrealizować swoje cele polityczne, Północnoamerykańska Nowa Prawica musi zrozumieć właściwe relacje pomiędzy teorią a zmianą społeczną, metapolitkyą a polityką, teorią a praktyką. Musimy uniknąć dryfowania w kierunku bezczynnego intelektualizmu albo bezmyślnego – a zatem najprawdopodobniej przynoszącego skutki odwrotne od zamierzonych – aktywizmu.

Maurice Cowling:

Editor’s Note:

This is the transcript by V. S. of Jonathan Bowden’s 2009 lecture on Professor Maurice Cowling. Unfortunately, the sound quality of the source is absolutely terrible, and there are many unintelligible passages. Both V. S. and I have racked our brains over this transcript long enough. Now we are crowdsourcing it to people who have a better ear for Bowden’s accent and the background knowledge necessary to pull words that elude us out of the buzz. Read more …

Assmann21,425 words

Translations: FrenchSpanish

In his new book, From Akhenaten to Moses: Ancient Egypt and Religious Change (Cairo: The American University in Cairo Press, 2014), Egyptologist Jan Assmann argues that philosopher Karl Jaspers’ concept of the Axial Age is “not a theory but a scientific myth” (p. 94).

According to Jaspers, the centuries between 800 and 200 BCE are a turning point in world history. During this Axial Age, Biblical monotheism and Zoroastrianism emerged in the Near East; Read more …

The Axial Age & the European Discovery of Logos, Part I

2,821 words

. . . was the Presocratic discovery of logos.

. . . was the Presocratic discovery of logos.

The idea of an “Axial Age” was a boon to the ideological drive after WWII to envision the history of all cultures as a “collective” undertaking between “connected” peoples. The behavior of Germany during Second War was testimony, apparently, of what happens when an otherwise modern culture refuses to join with the world of cosmopolitanism in defense of its ethnic integrity.
