The Language of Winners

1,322 words

Words matter. Language matters. The lucid, sober expression of ideas through the paired lenses of science and reason matters. Unfortunately, to the detriment of white people in Western countries, there is a Left-wing monopoly on scientific and political language that has ostracized Right-wing dissidents. Read more …

Objective Fictions & Subjective Realities:
The Need for a Nationalist Postmodernism

5,724 words

Perhaps the best way to think about “postmodernism” from the Right is not as a problematic philosophical tradition, but as a philosophical tradition with a problem. On the one hand, “postmodernism” may be loosely defined as a philosophical turn that delegitimized traditional aesthetic and moral standards, and “deconstructed” seemingly self-evident categories like ethnicity and culture. On the other hand, it could also be defined as a school of thought which delegitimized the scientific, materialist, Read more …

Nations, Not Projects:
A Response to Keith Woods

Imagine drinking beer with your neighbor. Imagine your families having a barbecue. Imagine helping your neighbor fix his vehicle, which is notorious for breaking down at inopportune moments. Imagine your neighbor picking your kids up from school because you can’t get out of work.

Then imagine that the next day, you’re shooting your neighbor, burning his house down, killing his sons, and raping his daughters. Oh, and you appropriate his car for your use afterward. Read more …

Dispatches from the War on Corona

3,789 words

In March 2020, the world declared war on COVID-19.

The use of martial rhetoric with reference to peacetime political conflicts — the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty, the domestic arena of the War on Terror — has a long and dubious history in American politics. The appeal is obvious. Warlike language depicts every conflict as a life-or-death struggle, encourages mass mobilization, justifies significant intrusion into people’s lives, and provides a pretext for novel (and possibly illegal) political solutions.

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

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 …
