Blood, Fire, & Spirit

Mårten Eskil Winge, Thor’s Fight with the Giants, 1872.

1,839 words

When the average person thinks of Sweden, they probably think of IKEA, meatballs, ABBA, and PewDiePie. When people in the Dissident Right think about Sweden, we often think of a country at the pinnacle of anti-white propaganda and anarcho-tyranny. Nevertheless, Swedish culture has had a great influence on my life, from the music I listen to each day to the furniture I fall asleep on each night. Furthermore, much of our fascination and modern-day perception of the Vikings comes from a small group of Swedish writers from the Geatish Society Read more …

The Prison Plays of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

5,026 words

Known mostly as a novelist, memoirist, and historian, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn had actually completed four plays before his first novel, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, was published in 1962. He composed his first two, Victory Celebrations and Prisoners, while a zek in the Soviet Gulag Read more …

Why The Left Wants To Capitalize “White”

1,297 words

The Washington Post made a surprising announcement last week: it will now capitalize “White.” This seemingly minor change speaks volumes about the changing discourse on white identity and how whites fit in a multicultural America. Read more …

Emmanuel Todd
Lineages of Modernity: A History of Humanity from the Stone Age to Homo Americanus
Cambridge, England, and Medford, MA: Polity Press, 2019

Much of today’s dominant globalist ideology derives from development theory, a body of thought which shares with Marxism the view that economic relations are the basis of social life and sees the races of mankind as fundamentally equivalent beneath the superficial cultural differences which have arisen over history.

Brief Thoughts on Tao Te Ching

1,489 words

Author’s note: Cited passages are taken from the 1988 Stephen Mitchell translation, London, Macmillan.

Tao Te Ching, the “Book of the Way,” was ostensibly composed by the pseudonymous Lao Tzu, about whom next to nothing is known, sometime around the time of Confucius (551-479 BC). It’s things like this that add even more irresistible mystique to this slender volume, Read more …

Here I Go Again On My Own

Christian Krohg, Leif Eriksson Discovers America, 1893.

1,702 words

After being stuck in the US for the last five months during the COVID-19 pandemic, I am finally back in Europe. Thanks to my friends in the Dissident Right, I get to spend the next few months in a small town that is overwhelmingly white. Reflecting on my travels this week reminded me of the many European historians and explorers Read more …

Are We Really Heading To A Civil War?

1,522 words

Morris V. de Camp pondered the prospects of Civil War 2.0 in the pages of Counter-Currents this week, comparing our current situation to the tumultuous 1860s. While we’re experiencing high levels of social rancor, there’s little chance it will turn into another Civil War.

Here’s why a civil war is not likely to occur anytime soon. Read more …

Let Freedom Ring

The Fourth of July is a bittersweet holiday for me. I have fond childhood memories of fireworks and BBQs with my family during each Fourth of July weekend. Yet as an adult, I have been living in Europe where I never celebrate the holiday. Due to the recent extension on travel restrictions, I spent this Fourth of July back in the USA. Read more …

Rockefeller Foundation Declares Support for Black Riots

3,811 words

It is fashionable, even among Rightist intelligentsia, to dismiss “conspiracy theories.” In doing so, one overlooks the covert forces that are funding — and always have funded — the forces of pseudo-revolt. These oligarchic sponsors are not fools or dupes, whose funds have been “taken over” by their anti-capitalist enemies, as was once assumed by conservatives during the Cold War. Since the establishment of the tax-exempt foundations over a century ago, the aims have been to promote what is now called a globalized “inclusive economy.” Read more …

Tribal Denialism

1,615 words

Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past five years, you’ve probably heard about the “dangerous” return of tribalism.

Before 2015 (or before Obama, depending on the source), Americans didn’t put themselves in tribes. They only saw red, white and blue. Everyone was judged as an individual. Civility and decency reigned supreme. Race relations and gender relations were all just fine. Americans were one nation, under God and indivisible. Read more …

Melting Crackpot:
E. Michael Jones on Sam Francis

1,945 words

The Catholic writer E. Michael Jones is currently one of the most popular thinkers on the Dissident Right, owing to disaffected nationalists turning to Catholicism in the wake of Charlottesville. In their desperate search for a based Catholic thinker, these young right-wingers settled upon Jones. Jones’s many tirades against Jews and willingness to associate with the Dissident Right make him an appealing figure to aspiring Catholic reactionaries.

Fukuyama on Civic Nationalism

3,801 words

In his new book Identity, Francis Fukuyama seeks to forestall the rise of white identity politics. Nevertheless, as I argue in “Fukuyama on Identity Politics,” Identity is a very useful book for White Nationalists because it concedes many of our most important premises. In “Fukuyama on Diversity,” I argue that Fukuyama admits that diversity is a problem and offers only very weak reasons to value it at all. Here I examine Fukuyama’s alternative to white identity politics, namely a conservative form of color-blind civic nationalism.  Read more …

Fukuyama on Diversity

3,282 words

Francis Fukuyama’s latest book Identity was written to forestall the rise of Right-wing identity politics, but, as I argued in “Fukuyama on Identity Politics,” the book is actually very useful to White Nationalists because it concedes a number of our basic premises while offering weak reasons to resist our ultimate political conclusions. This is especially apparent in his discussion of diversity.

Goodbye Mister White Guy

2,207 words

There is a general feeling of malaise among native European communities. I was unaware of this as a child, or perhaps it just didn’t exist yet, as I was also unaware of it as a young adult. But now I am sensitive to it, and certainly sensitive to reflecting on my past experiences with fresh eyes, and this will be such a reflection.

Jordan Peterson’s Rejection of Identity Politics Allows White Ethnocide

1,298 words

Jordan Peterson’s rejection of identity politics makes no sense in the face of an establishment from left to right committed to the diversification of all Western nations through relentless immigration, which is fast reducing Whites to a minority, and is premised on the prohibition of White identity, while encouraging the inherently collectivist identities of non-Whites.

Which Traditional Britain?

5,702 words

The following is the text of a talk that was delivered at the annual conference of the Traditional Britain Group that was held on October 24, 2015. The video is here.

The problem with talking about tradition as applied to our present world, at least within the context of a people or a country with a long history, is determining what, exactly, tradition is, and which tradition to draw upon. Read more …

A szerző megjegyzése:

  1. július 1-jén Oslóban beszédet mondtam a Scandza Fórumon, amelynek ez a szöveg volt az alapja. Mivel kevés idő állt rendelkezésemre, ezért eltértem az írott szövegtől és jegyzetek nélkül adtam elő. Ezt megelőzően 2017. június 21-én tartottam egy önálló előadást a témáról Budapesten.

A Broken Circle

Nicolas Poussin, A Dance to the Music of Time (Dance of Human Life),  1639

Nicolas Poussin, A Dance to the Music of Time (Dance of Human Life), 1639

921 words

The circle can symbolize perfection and eternity. It can also symbolize identity, since every circle has an inside and outside, an “us” and a “them.” Of course every line divides, but the circle turns back upon itself and “eternalizes” itself, for a circle has no beginning and end. But every vital identity seeks to eternalize itself as well.
