Guide to Kulchur
Episode 3: Play

99 words / 1:26:15

Counter-Currents Book Editor John Morgan again joins Fróði Midjord on the new podcast series, Guide to Kulchur – this time with video! – to discuss Play, a Swedish film from 2011 (available in English) by Ruben Östlund which depicts a group of Swedish children who are bullied and intimidated, and finally robbed, by a group of black children in modern-day Sweden, based on actual police reports. Similar to The Square, which we discussed last week, it mocks and critiques the politically-correct atmosphere of today’s Sweden, where no one dares to acknowledge the immigration problem that is right in front of everyone’s eyes.

Episode 2: The Square

82 words / 76:10

Counter-Currents Book Editor John Morgan joins Fróði Midjord on the new podcast series, Guide to Kulchur, to discuss The Square, a recent Swedish film (available in English) which mocks and critiques the intensely politically-correct culture of modern-day Sweden. The film depicts the director of a modern art museum in Stockholm whose pride in his liberal beliefs is challenged when his wallet and phone are stolen, and he is forced to venture into an immigrant area in order to attempt to retrieve them.

“Pride in a Country that I Did Not Belong To”
Announcing the Counter-Currents Laibach Anthology

Over the years, Counter-Currents has published a number of essays about the infamous Slovene fascist/Communist/anarchist band and art project, Laibach, and its music, art, and career, which now spans nearly forty years (my own “Barbarians are Coming from the East” should provide all the essentials for newcomers) and many highly diverse phases in their style and aesthetics.

When I discovered that the Slovene fascist/Communist/anarchist (depending on who you ask) band and art project Laibach was going to be performing in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana – which, until a century ago, was known by its German name of Laibach – on September 7 with the Lviv Philharmonic Orchestra, as a longtime devotee, I knew I had to be there.

For a Wagnerian, seeing a performance at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus (Festival House) – the theater that was built and established by Richard Wagner himself, with the financial support of Wagner Societies across Germany as well as King Ludwig II and the Bavarian state coffers in the 1870s – is the Holy Grail of Wagnerism, the pinnacle of the Wagner experience.

Seeing an opera production these days, if you’re anything even approximating a small-t traditionalist, is always a risky business. When the guardians of Western culture – who actually hate Western culture, or at least what it was until recently – want to change literature, painting, television, or film to suit whatever agenda they’re pursuing at the time, it’s a relatively simple matter: they simply create new works in new styles.

Over the past three years, Hungary has become well-known throughout the world for its resistance to illegal immigration as well as to the demands of the European Union, which has been attempting to force all of its Member States to accept quotas of migrants in spite of the fact that the majority of people in many of those nations are opposed to it.

In South Carolina, Criticizing Jews & Israel is Now Hate Speech

Rep. Alan Clemmons and Sen. Larry Groom, the ultimate cuckservatives, who led the fight for the bill

1,667 words

Something happened in South Carolina last month that seems to have escaped the attention of the mainstream media, for some unknown reason. On April 12, South Carolina became the first American state to legally define the criticism of Jews or the state of Israel as anti-Semitism. The definition goes into effect on July 1. Read more …

Hungary in 2018 lies under a pall of darkness. Its citizens, kept in thrall by being fed a steady diet of fear of imaginary threats, unbridled racism, and cynical hatemongering through the government’s relentless propaganda, are cowed and starving, but dare not speak out, as the government brutally cracks down on the slightest dissent.

The Power of Myth:
Remembering Joseph Campbell,
March 26, 1904–October 30, 1987

Joseph Campbell & his wife, Jean Erdman Campbell, c. 1939.

2,324 words

Joseph Campbell, the famed teacher of comparative mythology, was born on this day in 1904. For many people, including yours truly, he has served as a “gateway drug” into not only a new way of looking at myths, but into a non-materialistic way of viewing the world. And although as a public figure, Campbell mostly remained apolitical, evidence from his private life indicates that he was at least nominally a “man of the Right.” Read more …

2,158 slov

English original here

Všichni jsme moc dobře věděli, že to ani nemůže být jinak: liberálové se v následujících čtyřech letech budou pohoršeně snažit zablokovat jakýkoliv krok prezidenta Trumpa, ať už bude ve skutečnosti seberozumnější či sebenepatrnější. Sledovat v příštích letech liberály, jak se rozhořčují nad novými a novými údajnými políčky lidské slušnosti, bude nepochybně nevyčerpatelným zdrojem pobavení. Read more …
