We’re All Jets Now:
The Racial Politics of West Side Story

5,935 words

So Stephen Spielberg is remaking West Side Story.

Let me guess, Stephen. You believe that in the era of Trump, this classic tale of nativists versus immigrants — and about how “we should all just get along because we really aren’t all that different when you really think about it” — is more relevant than ever. Did I guess right, Stephen? Did I?

Stephen G. Bloom
Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America
New York: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2000

Joséphin Péladan & the Occult War Against Liberal Decadence

Joséphin Péladan, as painted by Marcellin Desboutin in 1891

1,665 words

France gave the world the French Revolution in 1789. It was an epochal event, albeit a symptom of a line of cultural decadence that gave birth to both liberalism and Communism, and which remains a pall over the entire West and wherever the West reaches. It is ironic that those who were condemned as “collaborators” in France during and after the Second World War were for years prior to the war the most vociferous in their lamentations regarding the decadence of the French Republic.

Remembering Aleister Crowley:
October 12, 1875–December 1, 1947

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

364 words

Aleister Crowley was an English poet, novelist, painter, and mountaineer who is most famous as an occultist, ceremonial magician, and founder of the religion and philosophy of Thelema. But ironically Crowley’s supposed Satanism and Black Magic are far less frightening to most people than his politics. For Aleister Crowley was also a man of the Right.

What George Lakey Gets Wrong about White Nationalists

The statue of Thorfinn Karlsefni in Philadelphia.

1,287 words

Last week, morning joggers running  along Kelly Drive in Philadelphia came across the once-prominent statue of the Viking explorer, Thorfinn Karlsefni – torn down and lying upon the ground. The general consensus is that the statue’s toppling was conducted in the same spirit that led to a spate of vandalism against Confederate monuments earlier this year, given that it has also previously been defaced by anti-white graffiti. This statue is also where Keystone United (formerly the Keystone State Skinheads) meet as part of their annual Leif Erickson Day celebration. Read more …

A Reminder that England Still Exists:
Detectorists

1,704 words

Metapolitics – the technique of altering our culture, to prepare the way for political change – is the primary strategy of the White Nationalist movement. It’s what most smart cookies promote to get us out of this godawful mess. But to change the culture, we must become part of it.

As we are not, currently, part of the establishment’s culture, the tendency of the Right is to view existing popular culture from an “identitarian” perspective. But is this justified? Read more …

The Open Secrets of Sheldon Whitehouse

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse

1,184 words

Politics is all about open secrets. This is especially true in societies as racially integrated and tribal as ours has become. These open secrets went on glittering display last Friday during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Both the Republicans – who at least nominally support his nomination – and the Democrats, who vehemently oppose it, spoke piously to moral platitudes. Read more …

Remembering Roy Campbell:
October 2, 1901–April 22, 1957

Roy Campbell

1,561 words

Roy Campbell was a South African poet and essayist. T. S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, and Edith Sitwell praised Campbell as one of the best poets of the inter-war period. Unfortunately, his conservatism, Nietzscheanism, and Catholicism, as well as his open contempt for the Bloomsbury set and his participation in the Spanish Civil War on the Fascist side, have led his works to be consigned to the memory hole.
