Why I Write
Saving the Idea Space

Plato and Aristotle from Raphael’s The School of Athens

1,306 words

Among my favorite “radical centrists” is the British commentator Carl Benjamin, better known as Sargon of Akkad. He’s enjoyable to listen to, not merely for the easy sound of his voice and his superior accent, but for his uncompromising honesty, even when he is wrong.

Back in March of last year, he published a video about the Alt-Right, and his summary was that it was fundamentally an idea space, protected from the policing of progressive gate-keepers.

Why I Write

Since I was a small child I have felt that I had to devote my life to something tremendously important. This is it. You are looking at it.

My life now easily divides into “before Counter-Currents” and “after.” Read more …

Why I Write for Counter-Currents

Gabriël Metsu, Man Writing a Letter, circa 1664-1666

Gabriël Metsu, Man Writing a Letter, circa 1664-1666

2,716 words

I grew up in an incredibly small, overwhelmingly Southern Baptist town. The kind of place where almost everyone had some idea of when any given person in town had or hadn’t walked up in the main church (stationed straight across from the main grocery store) during the altar call to ask the Holy Spirit to come into their hearts, and “conservatism” meant being among the people keeping track more than anything else.

Why do I write movie and television reviews from a White Nationalist perspective? It’s complicated.

First and foremost, I write because I love film. I think that film is the realization of Richard Wagner’s idea of the “complete work of art” Read more …

Why I Write

Carl Spitzweg, "The Butterfly Collector," 1840

Editor’s Note:

The author asked me to include a note with this indicating that although his central positions as stated below are unaltered, his opinions of certain individuals, e.g., “Prozium,” have changed.

I have been asked to contribute to the “Why We Write” series. Read more …

Why I Write

1,026 words

Several months back, I saw one of these “Why I Write” articles and resolved to write my own. I came up with several good reasons why one should write: to serve as a lightning rod around which to organize dissent, to expose my ideas to constructive criticism, to arrive at a rhetoric which is both radical and relevant, and so on. Those are all perfectly good reasons, but they’re unfortunately not my reasons. For me, writing is a compulsion, an itch that I can’t not scratch.

Why I Write

I write because I could not bear the loss
Of all that makes this world worthwhile and grand:
Apollo, Odin, Vulcan, Perkanus,
Birch forests sprung from European land,
Marble arches, Doric columns, beer halls,
Vast castles perched upon the Thames and Rhine,
Blonde hair caught up in ringlets, Yuletide balls,
Maypoles, Shelley’s poems, Polish honey wine
In hive shaped bottles redolent of bees,
Van Gogh’s sunflowers in antique frames, beef
Wellington, cabbage rolls, bacon, blue cheese,
Saint George, King John, Hermanius. Belief
That such things — small or vast as each one might
Be — must not become lost . . . . is why I write.

“One White Man’s Scream Out Across the Internet” 
Why I Write

527 words

I write because I can’t stand what’s happening to whites.

It’s personal and it’s political. It’s as small as the chicken bones strewn in the gutter of the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, and it’s as big as the future of the United States and the rest of the West. It’s about the kind of world my white children will grow up in. It’s everywhere I look, so it’s no use trying to avert my eyes. I hate what I see, and I have to scream.

I write because the future is not what it used to be.

I know, because I have lived in it. My parents had overseas jobs during the 1970s and early 80s, and, consequently, I spent part of my childhood and early teenage years in Latin America. Venezuelan schools — at least at the time — taught their students that the country’s population was racially diverse, going from White to Black, with eight shades in between. Read more …
