It is ironic — or maybe just sadly fitting — that Richard Spencer, the man who launched the Alternative Right brand, may have just destroyed it. But that seems to be fallout of his speech at the recent National Policy Institute conference, which he ended with the words “Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail Victory!” Read more …

New Wine in New Skins:
The 2016 NPI Conference, Alt Right, & the Newsmedia’s Struggle to Misunderstand

2,888 words

At the National Policy Institute’s conference on Saturday (officially titled Become Who We Are / 2016) I met a tweedy, middle-aged journalist I’ll call Charles. Charles was making notes for a political-analysis piece for a certain Newspaper of Record, and struggling to find an insightful angle about the Alt Right.

At the moment his working premise was that this Alt Right thing is essentially a revamping of old-fashioned “white supremacy” from decades past. But he wasn’t really happy with that idea. Read more …

The NPI Presser
“What is The Alt Right?”

spencerlogo1,568 words

If you follow NPI events, there was more than a little déjà vu in the National Policy Institute’s press conference in DC on Friday, September 9th. Titled “What Is the Alt Right?,” and framed as a reply to Hillary Clinton’s disordered denunciations of Donald Trump and his nationalist supporters, it was a very sedate, familiar affair.  Read more …

The National Policy Institute’s 2015 Conference

NationalPressBuilding2,984 words

Recently on NPR, I heard an interview with Angus Deaton, the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics. Deaton discussed how white people in the United States are experiencing an “epidemic of despair” as evidenced by rates of alcoholism, substance abuse, and suicide higher among middle-aged whites than any other population group. Deaton surmised, and the interviewer seemed to concur, that these trends are caused by increasing economic inequality between the rich and the poor, Read more …

Beyond Conservatism:
The NPI Mini-Conference

1,718 words

NationalPressBuildingYesterday my colleague and I drove to Washington DC to attend a set of lectures called Beyond Conservatism, organized by the National Policy Institute (NPI) and held at the National Press Club. NPI is described as a think tank, and its primary activities include managing the Radix Journal web site, the publication of some books, and the organization of a conference about once per year. Does this constitute a think tank? I’m not sure. I would describe NPI as pro-white or identitarian, but of course you will find mainstream media outlets and leftist organizations describing it in nastier ways.

Odpor v Budapešti

Viktor Orbán

Viktor Orbán

1,017 words

English original here

Zakázanie konferencie NPI (Národný politický inštitút) na tému „Budúcnosť Európy“ vládou prezidenta Viktora Orbána bolo bezprecedentnou udalosťou v histórii post-komunistického Maďarska. Ide o zlom pre identitárne hnutia a možno i pre samotný kontinent, keďže jeho vládcovia dali jasne najavo, že v Európe nedovolia obhajobu európskych záujmov.

Defiance in Budapest

Viktor Orbán

Viktor Orbán

1,094 words

Slovakian translation here

Suppression of the National Policy Institute’s conference on The Future of Europe by the government of President Viktor Orbán was an event unprecedented in the history of post-communist Hungary. It marks a watershed for the Identitarian movement, and perhaps even for the continent itself, as its rulers have now made unmistakably clear that they will not permit advocacy on behalf of European interests in Europe.

The Newton Awards: A History of Genius in Science and Technology
Whitefish, Mt.: Washington Summit Publishers, 2013

The Newton Awards (TNA) is both an ordinary and also quite odd book consisting of 142 short well-written chapters each profiling one or more scientists or engineers in chronological order from 1600 to 2000. In that sense it’s a useful reference for those profiled and resembles similar references on great musicians or sports figures. Read more …

White Census

NPI Chart (2008): 1950, 2000 and 2010-2060 population projections

2,717 words

So as not to mislead, I should note at the outset that there is no reliable global census of whites. I do not have even a ballpark notion of what the number might be, except that my estimate is usually lower than the back-of-the-envelope figures most white racialists arrive at on the rare occasions when they address the issue.

When I think of my favorite cities in the United States, Washington, DC is not high on the list. I’ve had to go there, for various reasons, several times over the years, but, except for the time I came as a tourist, it’s never been a place I would imagine spending any more time in than absolutely necessary.
