Impressions of the Propertarian Institute & H. L. Mencken Club Conferences

2,943 words

Having gone to various types of conferences in my life — corporate, libertarian, etc. — I can say that the lasting benefits of these things tend to be less in the actual talks or panels themselves than in the social opportunities for hobnobbing, networking, and just plain socializing. Meeting like-minded individuals, discussing with each other how we arrived at our positions, exchanging book recommendations, and hitting the hotel bar is what you remember most about a conference.

The Alt Right Means White Nationalism . . . or Nothing at All

906 words

ControlledDemolitionHillary Clinton’s Alt Right speech was a complete dud. It probably did not harm Trump or help Hillary, since Trump voters either don’t care about the Alt Right or look favorably upon it, while the only people susceptible to Hillary’s scare-mongering were already going to vote for her.

I had, however, hoped that Hillary’s speech would at least bring new attention to Alt Right websites like Counter-Currents. Read more …

Leo Strauss, the Conservative Revolution, & National Socialism, Part 3

3,373 words

Part 3 of 3

Editor’s Note: 

Leo Strauss

Leo Strauss

In the previous installment of this series, I examined Leo Strauss’s argument that the roots of what he called “German nihilism” — including National Socialism — were not nihilistic. Instead, it is rooted in a moral critique of the modern world. In this installment, I examine his argument that these non-nihilistic motives gave rise to nihilism because of certain contingent historical circumstances.  Read more …

Identity vs. Globalism in Stockholm:
The 2013 “Identitarian Ideas” Conference

IdentitatianIdea5poster2,683 words

No American of European descent who sets foot on the sacred soil of Europe can help but feel a powerful connection back to his European heritage, no matter how far in the past it might be, nor can any such person who is not deluded escape the feeling of urgency that grips those who experience first-hand the death spiral in which this continent is currently locked. Such have been my feelings over the past several weeks, after I arrived for the first time on the European continent, specifically in Sweden.  Read more …
