The Case for “White Submissivists”

1,745 words

My previous post, “They are White Submissivists,” had so many responses that I believe an encore is called for. Most of these responses, appropriately enough, offered suggestions on damaging epithets we can use against the Left, some tried and true, others clever and original. It seems that the Counter-Currents readership and I agree that the Right needs to start scoring more points in the Great Shaming War by controlling some of the language that gets hurled about these days like so many Molotov cocktails.

Fascism:
The Great Reconciler

2,124 words

Trump_Trumpolini_dux_zpswvdbifo6Because the definition of fascism is so fleeting and the word itself so abused, academics who are at least a little bit serious about understanding fascism have attempted to make a fascist checklist. The most memorable points are also the most superficial. Fascists share the Myth of a Golden Age, the promise of palingenisis, militaristic symbolism and rhetoric, etc.. However, beneath the surface there is a paradox in fascism that has escaped the bourgeois and Marxist academics: Fascism is the greatest force for reconciliation between the various strands of any society.  Read more …

Les origines de la religion indo-européenne

7,678 words

Horned god from Gundestrup Cauldron (100 BC)

Dieu cornu en position de quasi-lotus et entouré d’animaux, Chaudron de Gundestrup époque celtique, 100 avant l’ère chrétienne.

English original here

Note du Rédacteur :

Le texte qui suit est un cours donné par le Dr. Alexander Jacob au Forum de Londres, le 1er septembre 2012. L’approche du Dr. Jacob, si elle est exacte, implique une révolution dans les études indo-européennes, puisqu’il considère la diffusion pré-aryenne de la culture, qui inclut les civilisations minoenne, égyptienne, sumérienne, de la Vallée de l’Indus, comme faisant partie d’une plus grande culture indo-européenne.  Read more …

The Lord’s Prayer in Scottish Gaelic

In 1766, English writer Samuel Johnson penned a letter to William Drummond, an Edinburgh bookseller, regarding the translation of the Bible into the “Erse or Gaelic language” as biographer James Boswell put it in The Life of Samuel Johnson (1791).

Certain members of “the society in Scotland for propagating Christian knowledge” (undoubtedly meaning the Society in Scotland for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge (SSPCK), opposed translation of the Bible into Scottish Gaelic because it would be contrary to national unity.  Read more …

3,502 words

German philosopher and critic Johann Gottfried von Herder (1744–1803) developed the concept of romantic or organic nationalism, a form of ethnic nationalism in which the state derives its political legitimacy from historic cultural or hereditary groups.

Indo-European Esperanto?

1,278 words

grammar2The fragmentation of prehistoric Proto-Indo-European (PIE) into a bewildering array of mutually unintelligible European (and, more broadly, Caucasian—Armenian, Iranian, Indic, Tocharian, and Anatolian) languages has severely hobbled the cause of white survival. Language and cultural differences have divided an essentially homogeneous population into separate nationalities and sub-nationalities incapable of networking effectively, rendering all of them easy prey to the depredations of hostile organizations and governments.
