As I have written about previously for Counter-Currents (as well as in a considerably revised and expanded version of this same essay that was included in North American New Right, vol. 2), the English philosopher, novelist, and compiler of eclectic knowledge of all kinds, Colin Wilson (1932-2013), is one of the most unjustly forgotten writers of our time.

Why do people engage in self-defeating behaviors?

Wotan as Archetype:
The Carl Jung Essay

Franz von Stuck, "The Wild Hunt"

Franz von Stuck, The Wild Hunt, 1899

9,822 words

In the denazification atmosphere following World War II Carl Jung, founder of analytical psychology, found himself accused of having ‘Nazi’ sympathies. While Jung was a man of the ‘Right’[1] his essay explaining Hitlerism as an evocation of Wotan as a repressed archetype of the German collective unconscious put him on the long suspect list of intellectuals who were accused of being apologists for National Socialism.[2] He was fortunate to have been in a neutral nation in the aftermath of World War II.

W jaki sposób możemy nawrócić ludzi na biały nacjonalizm? Aby odpowiedzieć na to pytanie, musimy zapytać samych siebie, jak sami nawróciliśmy się, a potem postąpić tak z innymi. Najbardziej naturalną metodą konwersji jest podzielenie się informacją, która nas nawróciła: informacją o biologicznych różnicach rasowych, problemach różnorodności, systematycznej dyskryminacji i oczernianiu białych, Read more …

Albion’s Hidden Numina
Peter Shaffer’s Equus

Uffington-White-Horse-sat

The Uffington White Horse, Oxfordshire

2,486 words

Peter Shaffer’s 1973 play, Equus, is arguably the most pagan work of art created in the 20th century. Ostensibly an extended dialogue between a mentally ill boy and his psychiatrist, Shaffer’s play goes far beyond the realms of psychoanalysis and begins to stir the surface of an incipient numinous awakening.

2,332 words

English original here

Comment convertissons-nous les gens au Nationalisme Blanc ? Pour répondre à cette question, nous devons nous demander comment nous avons été convertis, et ensuite faire la même chose pour les autres. La méthode de conversion la plus naturelle est de partager les informations qui nous ont convertis : les informations sur les différences raciales biologiques, les problèmes de la diversité, la discrimination et la diffamation anti-Blancs systématiques, Read more …

Juden haben viele einzigartige psychologische Charakteristika, durch die sie sich radikal von Nichtjuden unterscheiden. Eine Eigenschaft, die Juden in einer Situation unter vier Augen und sogar in Gruppensituationen an den Tag legen, ist eine scharfsinnige Empfindsamkeit für Feinheiten, Nuancen, Wünsche, Gedanken und Gefühle von Nichtjuden.

Empathy Without Sympathy

Psychopaths' brains lack basic wiring that triggers compassion

Psychopaths’ brains lack basic wiring that triggers compassion

1,364 words

German translation here

Jews have many unique psychological characteristics that render them radically unlike non-Jews. One quality Jews possess in one-on-one situations, and even group situations, is a keen sensitivity to the subtleties, nuances, desires, thoughts, and emotions of non-Jews. They can size up people of all races and interact with them extremely well. This is no doubt one reason for their prominent role as mediators and go-betweens.  Read more …

The Psychology of Conversion

William Blake, "The Conversion of Saul"

William Blake, “The Conversion of Saul”

2,101 words

Translations: EstonianFrench, Polish

How do we convert people to White Nationalism? To answer that question, we have to ask ourselves how we were converted, then do the same for others. The most natural method of conversion is to share the information that converted us: information on biological race differences, the problems of diversity, systematic anti-white discrimination and vilification, the peril of whites being demographically swamped by fast-breeding non-whites, and the role of the organized Jewish community in creating this situation and preventing our people from solving these problems.  Read more …

No One Wants Crazy People To Have Guns, But Who Decides Who Is Crazy?

It sounds like a common sense measure.

Keep guns out of the hands of people who are “unstable.”

Wyndham Lewis’ Tarr:
An Exercise in Right-Wing Psychology

1,011 words

Wyndham Lewis’ novel Tarr (an anagram of both “art” and “rat”) appeared first in 1915 as the Great War was raging, and it remains one of the great exercises in hard-boiled psychology. Most behaviorist prose tends to be shunted aside into genre fiction such as adventure and perhaps the noir detective novel.  Read more …

The Strange Case of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange

Anthony Burgess
A Clockwork Orange
New York: W. W. Norton & Co., 1962

A Clockwork Orange is a short novella produced by Anthony Burgess in a very short period of time—yet the author had doubtless dwelt upon an entire zoology before producing it. One of the book’s characteristics, which even the most casual reader notices, is the experimental language or deliberate argot that Burgess develops for his retinue of juvenile delinquents.

Leadership & the Vital Order:
Selected Aphorisms by Hans Prinzhorn, Ph.D., M.D.

Hans Prinzhorn, 1886–1933

1,681 words

Translated and edited by Joseph D. Pryce

The enduring fame of German psychotherapist Hans Prinzhorn (1886–1933) is based almost entirely upon one book, Bildnerei der Geisteskranken (Artistry of the mentally ill), that brilliant and quite unprecedented monograph on the artistic productions of the mentally ill, which appeared in 1922. Sadly, it is too often forgotten that Hans Prinzhorn was the most brilliant and independent disciple of Germany’s greatest 20th-Century philosopher, Ludwig Klages (1872–1956). Read more …
