Happy Birthday, George Washington!
(February 22, 1732–December 14, 1799)

Alexis Coe
You Never Forget Your First: A Biography of George Washington
New York: Viking, 2020

For a lightweight, mildly scurrilous biography of George Washington, this has received an awful lot of advance publicity in recent weeks. Read more …

Grimes’ Miss Anthropocene

1,683 words

Miss Anthropocene is the fifth full-length release of Canadian avant-pop songstress Claire Boucher, known professionally as Grimes, and it’s considerably darker than much of her previous work. This is fitting — Grimes has stated that the concept of Miss Anthropocene, a triple-entendre, is that of an “anthropomorphic goddess of climate change.” If this sounds like a bunch of woo nonsense to you, you’d be (mostly) correct.

Why White Identity Politics is Moral

Aristotle. Line engraving by P. Fidanza after Raphael’s School of Athens

2,635 words

Part 2 of 3. Part 1 here.

Author’s Note:

The following text is a heavily edited transcript of an extemporaneous talk delivered at the Northwest Forum in Seattle on June 9, 2018. I want to thank the organizers, audience, and James B. for the transcription.     

The biggest question that we have to deal with before people are going to accept white identity politics is not whether it is inevitable or whether it is necessary but whether it is right. Read more …

The Red-Pilling of Spencer Quinn

1,980 words

I’m one of those lonely people who red-pilled himself. It happened twice: Once in my early twenties and once in my early forties. And since a commenter on my previous article “The Tipping Point” asked for me to explain how that happened, I thought I’d share.

I became aware of the critical nature of race — vis-à-vis blacks and whites — in my early twenties after a few years of living on my own post-college. I can trace it back to the day I started paying my own taxes. Read more …

Kevin MacDonald’s Individualism & the Western Liberal Tradition:
The Indigenous Europeans

2,932 words

Kevin MacDonald’s Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition: Evolutionary Origins, History, and Prospects For the Future (2019) is the first book that employs an evolutionary psychological approach to explain the rise of the West — actually, it is the first book that aims to comprehend the dynamics of the entire history of the West from prehistoric to current times to explain as well the decline of the West, the ways in which the “egalitarian individualism” originated by northwest Europeans in hunting and gathering times planted the seeds of the West’s current decision to destroy its genetic heritage through the importation of masses of immigrants.

Separation & Black-Jewish Discontents

1,080 words

In 1923, when Marcus Garvey, the first significant black separatist leader of the 20th century, invoked the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 30-37), he didn’t mean to say that he had been rescued by an altruistic stranger. No, he had just been convicted on federal charges of mail fraud in soliciting investments in his ambitious Black Star shipping line and was facing heavy penalties. Read more …

Reconstruction by the Obama Court Historian:
Henry Louis Gates Jr.’s Stony the Road

1,063 words

Although he was a supporter of President Obama, Henry Louis Gates Jr. did the President no favor when Gates made a scene and was arrested by a Massachusetts cop in 2009. Obama unwisely commented on the matter and had to hold a “beer summit” to smooth things over later. The cost of Gates’s temper tantrum was staggeringly high: In no small part due to their racial animus, Gates (and the President) turned a minor misunderstanding into a national firestorm, all during a massive economic crisis and while Obama was trying to navigate his health care reform through Congress.  Read more …

Race & Class in the Films of Basil Dearden

Dearden and his clapper.

3,951 words

For decades now, I’ve been waiting for someone to package an oversized picture book called The Films of Basil Dearden. The 1970s would have been a good time for that, since Dearden died in ’71 (car accident), and this mid-rank British director was in need of appreciation. Read more …

Et tu, Brute?

590 words

In what is quite clearly emerging as a worldwide Deep State tactic to hamstring the rise of national populism wherever “the system” sees it raising its ugly head, we have — closely following the Trump impeachment saga and the arraignment of Marine Le Pen for posting violent ISIS images on her Twitter account — the withdrawal of the right to immunity for Matteo Salvini, Read more …

Knives Out

1,045 words

Knives Out, Rian Johnson’s much-hyped addition to the mystery genre, is a forgettable, self-indulgent film whose flashes of competence are incapable of redeeming its trite plot, pathetically unfunny script, and aggressive commitment to political correctness.

The film has all the trappings of a classic murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie or Dorothy L. Sayers. A wealthy patriarch, Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer, in remarkably good form at 90) is found dead in his mansion after celebrating his 85th birthday Read more …

Black History Month Blues:
The Tipping Point

2,160 words

Conservative blogger Kim du Toit had a revealing post earlier this month entitled “Blacktops.” In his words:

Anyone who’s ever worked in the restaurant business will know exactly what the title of this post means. Basically, it’s a denigrating [sic] term that waiters (of all races, by the way) use as shorthand to describe a table of Black customers. What “blacktop” means is that the servers are highly unlikely to get a tip from that seating. Black people don’t tip. Read more …

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 2:
Is Capitalism the Real Racist?

2,696 words

There are reasons why the neoliberal establishment hates Bernie Sanders so much, and it’s not just because he’s a threat to their donors’ stock portfolios. Class-based material Marxism — once a pillar of Leftist thought — is not only incompatible with but also heretical to the neoliberal worldview and agenda. Read more …

Bugpod Clans Won’t Replace the Family

1,422 words

Sleeping area of a PodShare co-living space.

Right-wing Twitter fumed earlier this week over the provocatively-titled essay “The Nuclear Family Was A Mistake.”

The Atlantic essay, written by New York Times columnist David Brooks, wasn’t necessarily an attack on traditional families. But that didn’t stop the deluge of anger that Brooks would dare slander the family. 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 …

I’ve spent the last few days contacting friends in order to make plans for my upcoming birthday. I always try to make my birthday memorable, whether it be with a group of friends or by myself.

How did this all come about? Let’s find out. Read more …
