Introduction to Vedanta, Part III
The Katha Upanishad, Continued

Lord Yama instructs Nachiketa, as related in the Katha Upanishad.

4,644 words

Part I here, Part II here

In the last installment of this series, we saw that the Katha Upanishad tells the story of Nachiketa, a boy who is tutored by Yama, the god of death. The boy makes a request of Yama, which at first the god does not want to grant: “When a person dies, there arises this doubt: ‘he still exists,’ say some, ‘he does not’ say others. I want you to teach me the truth.” But Yama soon realizes that Nachiketa is a worthy student, and begins to teach. Read more …

Lord Haw-Haw of MI5

William Joyce

3,327 words

William Brooke Joyce, the Berlin propaganda broadcaster known as “Lord Haw-Haw,” and the last man to be executed in England for treason, was an agent for MI5. He went to Berlin in August 1939 at the behest of an old friend and spymaster, and wound up becoming the English voice of Nazi radio. Then, in 1945, he was brought back to London, tried as a traitor, and hanged on January 3, 1946.

This was done to please the Kremlin, and to protect Communists in the British government and intelligence services. Read more …

Mexicans & Motherhood

Kathryn Steinle, who was murdered by an illegal Mexican immigrant on July 1, 2015.

717 words

If ever there were an argument against giving women the vote, it’s demonstrated in the media’s attempt to hijack women’s hindbrains and override all possibility of rational thought by playing literal audio of children crying for their parents at the US-Mexico border.

Law Enforcement & The Hostile Elite

5,091 words

The police in America and much of Europe are profoundly and explicitly anti-white. Throughout the West, the police serve an elite who are very hostile to our interests and use them as a way to extort our people out of tremendous sums of money and to criminalize those who have committed no crime. From overpolicing to taking orders directly from those who wish to see our demise, law enforcement is no ally, nor do they act like one by any stretch. But for whatever reason, among our ranks, there seems to be a lot of slack given to the police. Read more …

The Latest Lies from Tommy Robinson

2,208 words

The latest lie in the ongoing Tommy Robinson saga came in the form of a report that he has been moved from a prison with a smaller Muslim population to one that is “seventy-one percent Muslim,” the implication being that the British government is intentionally trying to get Tommy killed by placing him among populations that will do their dirty work for them. The claim appears to have originated from Caolan Robertson, Tommy’s “manager.”  Read more …

Liberalism is Suicide; Suicide is Liberalism

Anthony Bourdain and his daughter, Ariane, in 2008.

1,038 words

In his seminal work, Suicide of the West, James Burnham wrote:

Liberalism is the ideology of western suicide. When once this initial and final sentence is understood, everything about liberalism – the beliefs, emotions and values associated with it, the nature of its enchantment, its practical record, its future – falls into place. Read more …

The Aryan Ethos:
Loyalty to One’s Own Nature

2,384 words

Today, more than ever, one must understand that social problems, in their essence, are rooted in problems of ethics and world-view. Anyone who thinks that social problems can be solved through purely technical means, is like a doctor who only wants to treat the patent symptoms of a disease, rather than examining and treating its deep causes.

Drink Leninade! You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Lives!

2,047 words

So I had an extremely curious moment recently when an acquaintance of mine showed me a bottle of soda she had found. It’s called Leninade, or, in Russian, ЛЕНИНАД, and features an image of our dear friend Vladimir Ilich chugging down a bottle of this cool, refreshing drink. Clearly a kitsch product relying on fuzzy Cold War memories to sell units, the concept of this soda is as tasteless as they come (as for the soda itself, keep reading). Read more …

A White Nationalist Praises Charlie Kirk & Offers Constructive Criticism

Identity & the Problem with Christianity

Andrea Mantegna, The Adoration of the Magi, circa 1495-1500

2,843 words

Race is a large component of identity that has been neglected in recent decades, so naturally, identitarians ought to care about race. Identity is valuable because it gives coherence to our relationships with our ancestors and descendants, it builds social trust and solidarity in our communities, and it helps establish who we are as individuals.

The Ancients on Speaking Rightly

1,605 words

We are all faced with the challenge of speaking, and living, truths which are felt to be offensive by a great many of our countrymen, not to mention the powers that be. This is not a new problem. By definition, the natural diversity of men means that knowledge of the truth is highly unequally distributed and those who know most about the truth are necessarily a tiny minority. This minority must alone face the prejudices and ignorance of the masses and the violence of the state. Read more …

The Way of Mitchum:
So Manly You Could Even Skip a Day!

3,893 words

James Scott Bell
Manliness: The Robert Mitchum Way
Woodland Hills, Cal.: Compendium Press, 2016

“A man must defend his home, his wife, his children and his Martini.” — Jackie Gleason

As the direct descendent of one of England’s greatest detectives,[1] I have of course followed with interest the development of the genre, especially the rather more brutal American branch, so different from granddad’s genteel country house affairs.[2]

Hello (((Fellow Boomers)))

1,188 words

Steven Brill’s Tailspin is cant and claptrap, less important for what it says than what it avoids.

There’s an old Twitter joke, or meme, called “Fellow White People.” It plays off how Jews in the media will call themselves “white” when it’s time to browbeat the goyim about racism, xenophobia, whatever. But when they want to talk mainly amongst themselves, and bang on about how they’re a special minority—well then! White people are the other, the enemy.  Read more …

On the Pardon of Jack Johnson

2,375 words

Last month President Trump pardoned Jack Johnson, the first Negro heavyweight boxing champion, for his 1912 violation of the Mann Act. This gesture garnered little attention outside of boxing circles, largely because Johnson and his 106-year-old crime now resides mostly among the cobwebs of public memory. Jack Johnson these days is a white pop singer and former surfer from Hawaii. Read more …

A Mary Sue, a Unicorn, & a Folie à deux:
Lessons in the Realities of Business for Young White Men

2,402 words

John Carreyrou
Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2018

White advocates should take a look at a sordid tale that played out in Silicon Valley from 2006 until 2015. The mess centers around a start-up company called Theranos and its CEO, Elizabeth Holmes. Since a main goal of Counter-Currents is to impart wisdom to younger white men, this author felt it was important to write a review on Wall Street Journal investigative reporter John Carreyrou’s book about the matter.

Victorian Respectability

1,551 words

“On the surface, Bram Stoker was a pillar of late Victorian respectability. . . . But just below the surface, he had something on his mind.”

The preceding sentences are from Christopher Frayling’s BBC documentary on Stoker’s Dracula, which was broadcast on A&E in 1996.

In a more recent television documentary on M. R. James, Read more …

On Black Pills & “Punching Right”

1,813 words

The Truth About the Kalergi Plan

Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

2,079 words

The facts of history are invariably more paradoxical and interesting than the retrospective mythology that comes afterwards. Browsing an excellent collection of Julius Evola’s essays, I came across an astonishing interview which the Baron held with his fellow aristocrat, the long-time “European federalist” Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi.

Ireland Aborts its Future

1,110 words

It might seem incongruous to quote Ronald Reagan at a time like this. But hear me out. Reagan infamously claimed back in the 1980s that if fascism ever came to America it would come dressed as liberalism. His claim was not only insightful but ominously accurate. This past week has been heart-wrenching for me and it is now with a very deep sense of foreboding that I look forward to the future of life in Ireland — a country I no longer recognize anymore.  Read more …
