Hungary: Illiberal Democracy in Action

6,981 words

The following is the text of the talk that Counter-Currents editor John Morgan delivered at the American Renaissance conference on May 18, 2019. It is reprinted from the American Renaissance site. The video is included as well.

It’s great to be back here. It’s the first time I’ve been at AmRen since 2014, and of course the world has changed a lot since then. This is why I think it’s timely that I talk about what’s happening in Hungary today, since I spoke about that in 2014 as well, but at that time, Europe’s migrant crisis was nothing more than a twinkle in George Soros’ eye.

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

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

2,318 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 …

How to Fight Amazon Censorship

Captain Bezos, book-burner-in-chief

884 words

As we have already publicized on this site, Amazon has rolled out a new policy of censoring books based solely on their political content – specifically, those books which engage in thoughtcrime against the Establishment’s sacred cows of the unquestionable desirability of globalization, open borders, multiculturalism, and egalitarianism.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Resources at Counter-Currents

In recent decades, Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) has become a symbol of the possibility of racial egalitarianism and the supposed victory of progressivism throughout the Western world. His birthday, January 15, which is commemorated on the third Monday of each January, has been designated as a federal holiday by the United States government since 1986 (although it was not celebrated in all fifty states until 2000).

Remembering Robinson Jeffers:
January 10, 1887–January 20, 1962

274 words

Robinson Jeffers was born on January 10, 1887.

Once regarded as one of the greatest American poets, Jeffers is largely forgotten by the literary establishment today, no doubt because of his politically incorrect subjects and views. A Nietzschean who was accused of fascist sympathies (which he denied), he celebrated nature and the outdoors in his work, eschewing the abstruse modernist style that was fashionable in his day.

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.

82 words / 76:10
