Mark Lilla
The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics
New York: Harper, 2017

I have been reading Mark Lilla since the 1990s, when he published his first and best book, G. B. Vico: The Making of an Anti-Modern.[1] Lilla has made a career of reading reactionary thinkers—Vico, Heidegger, Schmitt, Strauss, Voegelin, Read more …

Race is a large component of identity that has been neglected in recent decades, so naturally, identitarians ought to care about race. Read more …

The Based Jew Blues
Travis LeBlanc Interviews Frame Game

1,831 words

Who knew there were not one but two racist Jewish lawyers in New York?

Right now, Aaron Schlossberg is having his life ruined for telling some Hispanic restaurant workers to speak English, guilt-tripping them for spending his tax dollars (undoubtedly the most Jewish way to be racist), and then threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement on them.

The Nerve to Conserve:
Conservatism & the Right in the Age of Identity Politics

The Godfather of “respectable” conservatism, William F. Buckley, Jr.

1,633 words

Many on the Dissident Right these days like to deride conservatives. Conservatives are seen as the boobs who have been at least nominally in charge of the Republican Party since the end of the Cold War. We all know the names: Newt Gingrich, George W. Bush, John McCain, John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Mitch O’Connell, Paul Ryan, and many others.

Behind them all, pulling their ideological strings, was the Godfather of modern conservatism William F. Buckley and Jewish neocon writers such as William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer. Read more …

The 1990s & Contemporary Pro-White Metapolitics

Mexican Identity Politics during the Protest of California’s Proposition 187 in 1994

2,098 words

I was born in 1996. Despite my lack of memories of this decade, many readers of Counter-Currents undoubtedly have strong, perhaps viscerally negative impressions of the years 1990 to 2000, wherein optimism surrounding globalization made the Western intelligentsia confidently proclaim the last man and the end of history. Some of you might have positive memories of a simpler time before you were red pilled. Read more …

The Splintering Effect

1,803 words

It’s a tragic thing watching a great nation splinter itself to death. I wonder if it can even be helped? The strong, brilliant center of American culture, which was established and then defended for so long by those of European descent, now appears to the world like the yolk in a cracked egg. Either it’s still whole or it’s rotten . . . we won’t know for sure till Humpty Dumpty has his great fall.

Once upon a time, we were the dominant culture, derived from the waves of Northern European settlers who had come to the New World to break the land and hew a civilization out of a savage landscape. Read more …

Marching through the Institutions:
A Review of No Campus for White Men

2,087 words

Scott Greer
No Campus for White Men
WND Books, 2017

The point of American conservatism is misdirection. It is a movement designed to fail, a program organized to lose, a racket masquerading as resistance. For that reason, much of what passes as “intellectual conservatism” is an attempt to disguise the obvious and to funnel political momentum into pointless dead ends. Read more …

The Co-option of the Left:
Its Fatal Misunderstanding of Marx

2,237 words

It’s obvious to anyone with eyes to see that the contemporary Left is spectacularly alienating its own natural constituency with its increasingly unfocused and incoherent forms of protest. Certainly, they are vocal in denouncing Trump as a fascist, and Brexit as some sort of ur-nationalism, Read more …
