Canada in Decay: One Year Later

762 words

August 22 marks one year since the release of Canada in Decay: Mass Immigration, and the Ethnocide of Euro-Canadians (reviewed at Counter-Currents here).

Politics, Metapolitics, & Hegemony

2,128 words

“. . . the U.S. Constitution poses no serious threat to our form of government.” — Joseph Sobran

In my essay “Whitopia,” I defended the reluctance of White Nationalists to offer detailed blueprints of how ethnostates will be organized politically and economically. Indeed, to offer such accounts plays into the objection that White Nationalism is an abstract, utopian ideology. Read more …

An Academic Study of the North American New Right

2,185 words

Damon T. Berry
Blood and Faith: Christianity in American White Nationalism
Syracuse, N.Y.: Syracuse University Press, 2017

When I was in graduate school, one of my professors likened grading undergraduate exams to fever dreams, in which the events of the day — or, in his case, a whole semester’s worth of lectures — come back in garbled form. I have had the same experience reading about my ideas in the mainstream media.  Read more …

Why I Write

1,392 words

Speech that doesn’t commit one to anything, doesn’t stand on its own, doesn’t risk its position, doesn’t cost anything, is not worth very much.” – The Invisible Committee[1]

One of my former colleagues just had the honor of presenting the annual President’s Address to the American Anthropological Association. Her speech, a paean to the power of the “good” anthropologist who battles against the “looming darkness” caused by recent “political disasters,” was hailed as a courageous speaking of truth to power in the darkest days of late-modern life.

It is important for White Nationalists to visualize what victory would look like. There are really two answers to this question.
