Why I Still Refuse to Abandon the Republicans

Jeb Bush with a supporter

1,967 words

It’s easy to look back in anger. But is it always the right thing to do? The present, armed with hindsight, will always trump the past. It’s like an unfair fight that way. Nothing seems more obvious than a painful mistake when viewed in hindsight. But without hindsight, much less is obvious.

Remembering Alan Watts:
January 6, 1915–November 16, 1973

159 words

Alan Watts was born on this day in 1915. A prolific scholar and dazzling stylist, Watts is best known as the chief popularizer of Asian philosophy for the Beat and Hippy movements, but he was also an original thinker in his own right and a quiet man of the Right. In commemoration of his birth, I wish to draw your attention to these works at Counter-Currents: Read more …

Frithjof Schuon on the Meaning of Race

Frithjof Schuon

2,154 words

Aside from some of Julius Evola’s writings, there is a dearth of writing on worldly matters from a Traditionalist standpoint. As John Morgan mentioned in a recent review, most Traditionalist writers focus solely on spirituality while evading the implications that Tradition has on more practical matters. Considering this, it was refreshing when I first discovered Frithjof Schuon’s two expansive essays, “The Meaning of Race” and “The Meaning of Caste.”[1]

Der Fall Amerika

2,586 words

Audio version here

As a European, I was taught to dislike Americans from a young age. In school, and through cultural osmosis, a young European is taught to look down on these cultureless, backwards savages with their guns, their Christian dogmatism, their unrefined tastes, their consumerism, their obesity, and their racism.

Too Clever by Half:
A Review of Adam McKay’s Vice

2,063 words

Like an ingeniously designed, iridescent funhouse, Adam McKay’s latest film, Vice, will sneer at you from multiple directions. It’s as dishonest as it is clever, yet its uncanny cultural relevance makes it worth discussing regardless of its checkered merits.

More of a rehash of Democratic talking points than a biopic, Vice intends most of all to kick dirt on the career and character of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Read more …

The Motivational Cioran

1,097 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: Emil Cioran is notorious as perhaps the most pessimistic philosopher of all time. Nonetheless, I was able to find some aphorisms of his which I would consider inspiring. These are translated from Emil Cioran, De l’inconvénient d’être né (Paris: Gallimard, 1973).

Remembering J. R. R. Tolkien:
January 3, 1892–September 2, 1973

471 words

“I am in fact a Hobbit.”—J. R. R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is a favorite author of New Left “hippies” and New Right nationalists, and for pretty much the same reasons. Tolkien deeply distrusted modernization and industrialization, which replace organic reciprocity between man and nature with technological dominion of man over nature, a relationship that deforms and devalues both poles.

Historical Optimism & Historical Perspective

John William Waterhouse, Destiny, 1900

1,148 words

It is traditional around New Year’s Day to be reflective of the year past and to anticipate the events of the coming year. First of all, I would like to commend Spencer Quinn for his excellent article “No Goal More Noble: Thoughts for the New Year” that appeared yesterday on Counter-Currents. Mr. Quinn’s eschewal of the black pill at the end of this most blackpilling of years represents an act of moral will that is truly inspiring. Read more …

2018: The Year to End all Years
(And What to Expect from 2019!)

1,754 words

It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times. Actually, it wasn’t all that bad. In fact, quite a few good things happened in 2018 – in the world, and even in our Movement.

Just for kicks, let’s first look at what the Establishment is celebrating. CNN ran an article on its website with the encouraging title “2018 Wasn’t ALL Bad: Here Are All the Good Things that Happened in the World.” Read more …

Feminism & the Oppression Olympics

1,728 words

According to mainstream accounts, the current disarray of the Women’s March movement began almost at the moment of its inception. A black feminist and a brown feminist spoke disrespectfully to a Jewish feminist, and through that original sin the seeds of the movement’s subsequent troubles were sown.

The Jewish victim was Vanessa Wruble, Read more …

Storm over Kiev:
Report on Asgardsrei 2018

4,329 words

If I wanted to provide an example of the Faustian spirit at work, I would probably point to the Asgardsrei festival. Just think about what would be the most extreme and difficult event to organize. A NSBM festival would be high on the list. After you organize it, authorities in your country attack it, and you become an unwanted and unwelcome person in your own fatherland. What do you do? You move to a different country and proceed with your work. Read more …

Jan-Werner Müller
What is Populism?
Penguin, 2017

When a political establishment feels threatened by a growing force like National Populism, Plan A is to defend the establishment and attack its opponents by dispatching middle-brow journalists to sneer and jeer and middle-brow political hacks to construct partisan talking points. Read more …

Inshallah, the THOTs

1,425 words

Why do we have such things as white Sharia?

I mean, it’s a funny meme, and sharing images of Ramzan “Ginger Sharia” Kadyrov to trigger jihad-watching BoomerCons is highly entertaining, but hardly anything is done just for the lulz. Now, whether there are people out there who sincerely support white Sharia is of no consequence. People support all sorts of stupid ideas, as the success of Scientology will attest. Read more …

Perused with Pleasure in 2018
My Top 5 Books

1,530 words

I was using my Spectator-co-uk digital subscription to search for odds and ends in its wonky archive. What, I wondered, did the Speccy have to say about the Angry Young Men in the late 1950s? Better yet, what did they have on Colin Wilson and his friend, the ever-elusive Bill Hopkins?

Not an awful lot, as it turns out. Read more …

Against Escapism

1,511 words

Escapism is one of the major issues plaguing young white men. Virtually all of them are gamers of some sort. If not a gamer, he typically immerses himself in board games, or else fantasy and science fiction novels and television series. The more disciplined and intelligent among us might use this as a springboard toward developing some useful skills. Read more …

Five Books that Shook My World (2018)

547 words

1. Camille Paglia, Provocations: Collected Essays on Art, Feminism, Politics, Sex, and Education (New York: Pantheon, 2018).

Paglia is self-recommending, of course. I was a bit let down, as the subtitle seemed to promise a career-wide retrospective, while this is more like a reunion tour, with emphasis on more recent works. The key essays are a vast survey, “Cults and Cosmic Consciousness: Religious Vision in the American 1960s,” a liberal education in itself; Read more …

My Favorite Books of 2018

912 words

I have read about 40 books in 2018 (so far). These are my five favorites. (Modesty requires that I exclude my own books and other Counter-Currents titles.)

1. Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin, National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy (New York: Pelican, 2018).

As I mentioned in my “Toward a New Nationalism” essay, Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin’s National Populism is a very exciting book. Read more …

Christmas at Counter-Currents
Some Thoughts on Yule

3,342 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …
