Sympathy for the Dragon

1,107 words

People want someone to blame for the coronavirus outbreak. The obvious culprit is China. It originated in China, China tried to cover up the outbreak for weeks, and the communist state has not been open with what it knows about the virus.

But liberals don’t want to blame China. They want to blame Donald Trump. Surprisingly, many on our side share this view. Read more …

The Last Words of Yukio Mishima to His Followers

580 words

Translated by Riki Rei.

To the members of Tatenokai [Shield Society]:

Among you there are both those who have stayed with us consistently since the founding of our organization and those of the fifth class who have been with us for only nine months. Yet as far as I’m concerned, regardless of the degrees of your involvement and experience, we are all comrades of a shared identity who have gone beyond the difference of ages Read more …

Guy Talk, Balkan Style

1,600 words

Peter Delyan was a famous Balkan hero who led an uprising in 1040 against the Byzantine Empire. Comparisons to William Wallace or Braveheart wouldn’t be out of place, as Delyan was a larger-than-life character that was able to lead ordinary peasants into battle and revolt against a larger, occupying force.

Etnofutur Conference 2020:
For Estonia

Tallinn, Estonia.

1,514 words

When I think about Estonia, I think about Kalevipoeg, Estonia’s national epic by Friedrich Reinhold Kreutzwald. To me, this poem best represents the Estonian people, whose history, language, and mythology are distinct compared to the rest of Europe. The Estonian Declaration of Independence, created on February 24th, 1918, even quotes an excerpt from the last chapter of Kalevipoeg. Read more …

No Greeks or Germans Allowed:
Yoram Hazony’s Anglo-Hebrew Nationalism

Horatio Greenough, George Washington

1,547 words

Israeli scholar Yoram Hazony wants to define nationalism for the entire West.

And that nationalism leaves no room for our classical heritage.

Counter-Currents readers are probably familiar with Hazony, his book The Virtue of Nationalism, and his “National Conservatism” conferences. Greg Johnson’s recent series on Hazony’s book is recommended (parts one, two, three, and four).

This essay covers another aspect of the Israeli political theorist: Read more …

“Resistance is Futile”:
Hazony on Nations, Empires, & Minorities

1,771 words

Yoram Hazony’s argument in The Virtue of Nationalism (reviewed here and here) depends on a hard either/or between the nation-state and the empire. A nation is either sovereign or it isn’t. Empires inevitably destroy the sovereignty of the states they incorporate, even if this fact is cloaked in lovey liberal euphemisms.

Hazony, moreover, argues that even though empires might appeal to universalistic ideologies, they always begin with a particular people, a particular ethnic core, Read more …

The Many Faces of the Jewish Elite, Part 2
Pragers vs. Foxmans

Dennis Prager is all too happy to lecture whites on why combining race and nationalism is evil while supporting Israel, an ethnonationalist state.

2,714 words

Part 1 here

Among the secular diaspora Jews in the West, a useful distinction can be made. There are those who will give Right-wing whites some benefit of the doubt, and there are those who won’t. The former group we can call “pragers,” and the latter we can call “foxmans.”

Let’s assume that the vast majority of both pragers and foxmans are ethnocentric: that is, they identify ethnically as Jews and exist on the Right-wing side of their own politics. This ethnocentrism manifests itself in two ways: either honestly, by being pro-Jewish or pro-Israeli, or dishonestly, by being anti-white. Read more …

Glancing through the blurbs on the back of Ian Bremmer’s new bestseller, one finds the Secretary-General of the UN, a managing director of the IMF, a co-chairman of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the President of the International Rescue Committee, and Larry Summers: not a lineup one would expect to find endorsing a bold challenge to conventional thinking.

Az európai harci szellem

A szerző megjegyzése

Az alábbi beszédet 2018. április 8-án Helsinkiben az első alkalommal megrendezett Ébredés Konferencián adtam elő. A szervezők arra kértek, hogy az európai harci szellemről beszéljek. Szokás szerint kicsit improvizáltam, és eltértem az előkészített szövegtől. Szeretnék köszönetet mondani a szervezőknek, a találkozó mintegy 200 résztvevőjének, és annak a Counter-Currents olvasónak, akinek az adománya lehetővé tette, hogy a konferenciára utazzak.

Author’s Note:

This is the text of my talk from the first Awakening Conference, which was held in Helsinki on April 8, 2018. The topic I was asked to speak on was the European fighting spirit.

There was what looked like a boy, but used a girl’s name, so I avoided addressing him/her/it. One girl was asked what type of music would be played on the party boat: Read more …

Making Equestria Great Again
My Little Pony: The Movie

2,345 words

My Little Pony: The Movie has surely been a test and a crisis for the franchise and its creators. Has it succumbed to the enormous pressure to cuck out, and dilute its themes and formula with “poz”? Or have the show and the Mane Six retained their integrity through the quantum leap to the big screen?

Thankfully, there is little here to complain about. Unlike previous spin-offs of the Equestria Girls movies set in the relative narrative isolation of an American high school, My Little Pony: The Movie is set in Equestria with a capital E, Read more …
