My recent essay on “Identity and the Problem with Christianity” garnered a fair bit of criticism from Christian members or allies of Identitarianism. This was something I expected, as the thesis—that authentic Christianity is incompatible with any other form of identity—is neither conciliatory nor is it a consciously accepted precept of Christian theology.

Co je to identitářství

Členové Identitás Generáció před kinem Corvin, jedním z největších center odporu během Maďarské revoluce v roce 1956, u připomínky jejího šedesátého výročí 23. října 2016.

3,136 slov

English original here

Následující esej jsem napsal na žádost maďarské pobočky Generace Idenity Identitás Generáció, za účelem překladu do maďarštiny. Původní anglická verze se poprvé objevuje zde.

Byl jsem požádán, abych představil koncept identitářství. Jakkoliv se toho velmi rád zhostím, je poněkud paradoxní, aby evropské skupině kázal o identitářství právě Američan. Read more …

The Architecture of Imre Makovecz

1,626 words

Imre Makovecz was one of the great architects of the late twentieth century and the most notable proponent of organic architecture in Hungary. His works are characterized by an idiosyncratic style that melds modern influences with motifs inspired by Hungarian folklore. He designed nearly five hundred buildings over the course of his life, about half of which were built.

Unite the Right Did Nothing Wrong
(But There’s Still Room for Improvement)

1,532 words

Well, the unity didn’t last long. Immediately after Unite the Right, those who did not participate started attacking the speakers and organizers. For instance, Katie McHugh and AntiDem have used Unite the Right as a pretext to attack Richard Spencer. Now the speakers and organizers are blaming and disavowing one another. Richard Spencer, Eli Mosley, and Baked Alaska, for example, have disavowed Jason Kessler over a tweet about Heather Heyer, who joined the violent mob that attacked Unite the Right and died as a result.  Read more …

Ruby Ridge, 25 Years On

Randy Weaver

2,328 words

August 22nd will be the 25th anniversary of what is popularly called “Ruby Ridge.” Most readers my age or older will remember Ruby Ridge well, but it is possible there are some younger individuals reading this without that same cognizance of the events.

The name refers to a mountaintop in Northern Idaho where — in 1992 — a man named Randy Weaver and his family ended up in a prolonged, armed standoff with the federal government that ended in the death of his wife and 14-year-old son.  Read more …

Has the Alt Lite Embraced the [North American] New Right?

The following is reprinted from Atlantic Centurion.

What Trump’s Election Means for Identitarianism

baldeagle2,336 words

Last April, I wrote an article for Counter-Currents called “What Would a Trump Presidency Mean for Europe?” In it, I — like so many others in our neck of the political woods — predicted that Trump would win the election, and I discussed the impact I thought his victory would have on the situation in Europe.

Identitarian Ideas VIII

1,105 words

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 …

The French Lobby Rises:
Anti-French Rapper Purged from Verdun Commemoration

1,325 words

VerdunThe degeneration of European Man is visibly evident in the state of our so-called elites. They too have grown terribly soft, culturally ignorant, and ultimately wholly without honor. One sign of this is the disgusting decline in the intellectual and moral quality of official culture, including commemorations of major events.

Consider the following. In 1979, the authorities invited no less a figure than the German writer Ernst Jünger to commemorate that titanic fratricidal struggle which was the Battle of Verdun. Read more …

After Brussels:
The Trap of Counter-Jihad

brussels_explosion_91,266 words

The religion of peace strikes again. At the risk of being immodest, I can predict what happens next. After all, these terror attacks seem to follow a basic formula:

Step 1: Attack happens. World leaders are “shocked” that such a thing could happen. Who would have thought bringing in people who follow a religion founded by a warlord and pedophile would lash out in such a way against us? We’ve been so tolerant! To them! And it’s not as if these things happen on a regular basis . . .  Read more …

Houellebecq, islám a Židé:
Recenze knihy Michela Houellebecqa Soumission

Fu8QH02,442 words

English original here

Nejnovější román Michela Houllebecqa Soumission vyvolal ohromný rozruch. Kniha popisuje nástup k moci islamistického prezidenta ve Francii roku 2022 a předvídatelně byla označena za islamofobní. Načasování vydání knihy souběžně s masakrem v Charlie Hebdo – kdy skupina ve Francii narozených nespokojených muslimů povraždila několik levicově liberálních karikaturistů a Židů – bylo z hlediska marketingu knihy dokonalé.

Уелбек, ислямът и евреите:
Анотация на Подчинение на Мишел Уелбек

2,835 думи

Fu8QH0English original here

Гийом Дуроше

Последният роман на Мишел Уелбек “Подчинение“ предизвика огромен интерес. Книгата описва идването на власт във Франция на президент ислямист през 2022г. и очаквано е набедена за ислямофобска. Атентатът над Шарли Ебдо – няколко разгневени мюсюлмани родени във Франция убиват ляво-либерални карикатуристи и евреи – се проведе в най-подходящото време, за да увеличи продажбите на книгата. Действително “Подчинение“ е нещо, станало изключително рядко – succès européen (за разлика от обичайния паневропейски панаир на културата, състоящ се от холивудски блокбъстъри и дегенерирала бритпоп музика).

Houellebecq, Islam, & the Jews:
A Review of Michel Houellebecq’s Soumission

Fu8QH02,916 words

Translations: Bulgarian, Czech

Michel Houellebecq’s latest novel, Soumission, has attracted enormous attention. The book portrays the coming to power of an Islamist president in France in 2022 and has predictably been condemned as Islamophobic. The timing of the Charlie Hebdo massacres – a few disgruntled French-born Muslims murdering left-liberal cartoonists and Jews – could not have been better in terms of boosting sales. Indeed, Soumission is already that rarest of things: a succès européen (rather than our usual pan-European cultural fare of Hollywood blockbusters and degenerate Anglo pop music). Read more …
