Notes on Schmitt’s Crisis & Ours

Carl Schmitt, 1888–1985

3,994 words

Like many of his books, Carl Schmitt’s The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy (1923) is a slender volume packed with explosive ideas.[1] The title of the English translation is somewhat misleading. The German title, Die geistesgeschichtliche Lage des heutigen Parlamentarismus, is more literally rendered The Intellectual-Historical Position of Contemporary Parliamentarism. But the word “crisis” is still appropriate, because parliamentary democracy in Weimar Germany really was in crisis. Read more …

Schmitt, the Man

877 words

If you search for Carl Schmitt on Counter-Currents, you’ll get a veritable deluge of articles written or inspired by this most eminent of German jurists. From my own humble attempts at applying his friend-enemy distinctions to American race relations, much grander thinkers’ treatments on the deeper aspects of Schmittean thought, Read more …

Pop Music is a Satanic Mind-Virus!
Part One: Jungle Beats

1,365 words

As the country gets more diverse, the radio gets more homogeneous. I don’t mean this in the ethnic sense, of course; America’s rockstars are more colorful than ever! Instead, the songs that dominate the country’s charts are beginning to sound more and more alike. The average pop station tends to be an indistinct mass of the same noises Read more …

An Ecofascist Perspective

The Truth about Systemic Racism in America

3,391 words

Systemic racism is one of the most talked-about issues in society today. A Google search of “systemic” by itself will produce a first page of results that is saturated with headlines and titles about “systemic racism.” Discussion of systemic racism tends to revolve around claims that blacks and browns are systematically disadvantaged Read more …

Say His Name

646 words

What’s the definition of mixed emotions? Answer: It’s when your mother-in-law drives your new Cadillac off the side of the Grand Canyon. Normally, I would be upset at yet another Negro killing a white girl and seriously injuring another, but in the case of Dawit Kelete, I’m not so sure.

Placemaking

1,494 words

What makes a place? Perhaps the best definition is simply where one feels they can linger. A “place” is a location that can be both a destination and a path. When we consider places, they invariably have a few attributes that make stopping there or passing through there a memorable experience. The opposite of a “place,” as it where, Read more …

The Making of an American Trav

“I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

3,923 words

I’m not going to claim that I have been totally 1488 from day one or that I came goose-stepping out of the womb. But I think I have always been instinctively and intuitively a race realist. Or at least, I have been since around the age of 8. The first black person I ever met was this kid named Scooter when I was in kindergarten. This would have been in the early 80s. Read more …

At the funeral, the rabbi is supposed to give a speech extolling the virtues of the deceased. But there’s a new rabbi and he says, “I’m sorry, I did not know the man.

A Long Time Coming

1,067 words

Much has been said in recent months about the cult of radical Leftism donning a veil of religious zealotry over the George Floyd death and Black Lives Matter protests. In truth, America’s excessively libertine, egalitarian idealism has always been a twisted morality play that relentlessly seeks to destroy the strong and healthy in favor of the Read more …

Charles Ives, American Composer

3,095 words

Today is a fitting occasion to celebrate the works of Charles Ives (October 20, 1874–May 19, 1954), one of America’s greatest composers. In true American fashion, Ives was an iconoclast who combined old-world influences with adventurous musical experimentation and the sounds of his small-town New England childhood. He could justly be called the musical equivalent of Ben Franklin or Thomas Edison. Read more …

Everyone Hates Woodrow Wilson

1,363 words

Woodrow Wilson once stood as a hero to modern progressives. The 28th president’s moral idealism, disregard for constitutional fealty, and belief in the goodness of “big government” endeared him to liberals of the Barack Obama era. Commentators positively noted the similarities between Wilson and Obama Read more …

The McCloskeys waving what amount to toys in the hands of the untrained was the single most impotent display of fear and guilt that has graced the screens of the West this month.

1,482 words

On the 15th of September, 1938, UK Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain famously flew across the English Channel (overcoming his fear of flying) for the monumental purpose of meeting Adolf Hitler at the Berghof in order to avert the Sudetenland crisis, and hopefully (yet futilely) avoid plunging Europe into a Second World War. Upon his departure, he gave an impromptu speech to the British press in which he offered his favorite childhood self-motivating pep talk, Read more …

Choose Your Own Prison Adventure

From a manuscript of Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy.

1,638 words

I have never been to prison and I hope I never go to prison. In a perfect world, obeying the laws and refraining from illegal activity would be enough to guarantee a life without imprisonment. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. We are living in a world where propaganda, intimidation, and violence against white people is being promoted and encouraged. Yet when white people defend themselves, we are the ones who get arrested and sent to prison. For fear of their safety, many white people feel like prisoners Read more …
