Morbid Meditations

Alphonse de Neuville, The Huns at the Battle of Chalons

2,411 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: The following extracts are drawn from Emil Cioran, Précis de décomposition (Paris: Gallimard, 1949). The title is editorial.

There are no beings more dangerous than those who have suffered for a belief: The great persecutors are recruited among the martyrs who were not beheaded. (13)

Kemono Friends:
Adventure in Japari Park

1,231 words

Kemono Friends is a clever twelve-episode anime that revolves around an adventurer, Kaban, and her attempts to find out where she belongs in the mysterious, sprawling and derelict “Japari Park.” Airing January through March 2017, it’s since become a surprise hit and amassed a cult following thanks to its effective storytelling and “strange deepness” that makes it more compelling than first impressions may suggest.

The 2019 IJzerwake:
“Flanders Flemish, Europe European!”

961 words

I would like to introduce Counter-Currents’ international audience to the largest annual Dutch-Flemish nationalist event in the Low Countries: the IJzerwake. In Dutch, this refers to a wake or prayer on the river Yser. It could also be translated as “wake of iron,” as ijzer means iron. It is a perfect example of successful nationalist activism.

The event began as a split from the older IJzerbedevaart, or “pilgrimage to the Yser,” which was taken over by Leftist influences around 2003. Read more …

Lynchburg & Charlottesville:
A Study in Contrasts

Lynchburg, Virginia

3,758 words

Now that it is past Labor Day, I want to tell the traditional “what did you do last summer?” story. Most of my summer was spent doing what I normally do: working out, attending civic and cultural events in my home base in the state of Washington, and supporting Counter-Currents. Read more …

Diversity’s Not a Strength in the Zombie Apocalypse, Either:
The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series

3,028 words

Telltale may have gone bankrupt, but like a zombie rising from the grave, its The Walking Dead video game series is soon to be released on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in a new collection. It contains all four “seasons” of the game (some twenty “episodes” in all), the extra chapter 400 Days, and the abysmal miniseries based on Michonne (which they probably couldn’t give away if they tried).

The Birth of Neoliberalism

2,744 words

Quinn Slobodian
Globalists: The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism
Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2018

One of the seminal ideological battles of recent history has been that between internationalism, in one form or another, and nationalism. Countless words have been devoted to dissecting the causes, effects, merits, and drawbacks of the various incarnations of these two basic positions. Read more …

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

1,120 words

Some of my best reviews are about Quentin Tarantino, but this won’t be one of them. Tarantino has gone from a director I loved (see my essay on Pulp Fiction), to a director I loved to hate (see my reviews of Kill Bill 1 and Inglourious Basterds), to a director I just hated (Django Unchained), to a director I just ignored.

Tarantino’s only great movie is Pulp Fiction, and at this point it is safe to declare that one a fluke. Read more …

Neocons at the Aughts’ Box Office

2,724 words

Remember the 2000s?

It was a simpler time. For most of the decade, smartphones were non-existent. Twitter did not drive the news. People still bought CDs. Not every movie at the theater was based on a Marvel character. Jnco jeans (the horror!) were in style.

It was also the time when neoconservatism ruled the political landscape. It wasn’t just an ideology limited to Washington, DC; the media also pushed it. Read more …

You(Tube) Will Not Replace Us!

James Allsup

2,256 words

Over the last few days, I have been watching YouTube burn. Friends and colleagues have had their channels, large and small, deleted, many of them without warning or any pretense of fairness, rules, process, or appeal. It is Leftist corporate tyranny at its ugliest and least accountable.

The first wave of this new campaign was in June. That is when CounterCurrentsTV got the axe. Read more …

It’s Time to Wage “War” on Protein Wisdom

2,135 words

Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom hates identity politics. He would like to wage war against it; stamp it out, as it were. The problem, however, is that the weapons he would like to use in this war only point in one direction: against whites. He pretends otherwise, but he’s easy enough to see through.

Jean Raspail

Part 2 of 3 (Part 1 here, Part 3 here)

Then he started to count. Calm and unhurried. But it was like trying to count all the trees in the forest, those arms raised high in the air, waving and shaking together, all outstretched towards the nearby shore. Scraggy branches, brown and black, quickened by a breath of hope. All bare, those fleshless Gandhi-like arms. Read more …

The Leopard

3,594 words

Luchino Visconti’s masterpiece is his 1963 historical epic The Leopard (Il Gattopardo, which actually refers to a smaller spotted wild cat, the serval, which is the heraldic animal of the princes of Salina in Sicily). Visconti’s film is a remarkably faithful adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The Leopard became the best-selling Italian novel of all time, carrying off many critical laurels as well. Read more …

The “Celestial Dog”

John William Waterhouse, Diogenes (1882)

872 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

One cannot know what a man must lose to have the courage to defy all conventions; one cannot know what Diogenes lost to become the man who allowed himself to do everything, who turned his most intimate thoughts into acts of a supernatural insolence, as would a god of knowledge, at once libidinous and pure. No one was more frank; an extreme case of sincerity and lucidity, as well as an example of what we could be if education and hypocrisy did not restrain our desires and actions.

Leni Riefenstahl in Modern Memory

2,147 words

One of the delights of revisiting old movies after many years is finding out that you completely misread or misremembered certain scenes. Early on in the first part of Leni Riefenstahl’s Olympia, we have the entry parades of the national teams. When the French team come by, they drag their flag in the dust – because, or so I assumed decades ago, these robust athletes were utterly disgusted with the new Popular Front government under the hapless Léon Blum Read more …

Earnest Sevier Cox:
Advocate for the White Ethnostate

2,299 words

There have been calls for the white American ethnostate for a very long time. Its last advocate who made some degree of progress was Earnest Sevier Cox (1880–1966). Cox was born and raised in Tennessee. His family seems to have been somewhat wealthy, and he was supported with financial gifts from his sister at key times. Cox’s early life was unfocused and filled with projects that he began but never finished. Read more …

Aborting Steve King

Rep. Steve King

1,592 words

Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King is in serious trouble again. This time, it has nothing to do with race or immigration; it’s over sex and abortion. Like most of King’s comments, it revealed an uncomfortable truth, but it upheld a foolish position that the Right should avoid.

You may recall King as the Congressman who often makes BASED Boomer comments. Read more …
