“I’ve come far from chains/From metal and stone/From makeshift designs/And seeking a star” — Scott Walker, “Rhymes of Goodbye”
Every year, near the end of December, I establish plans for the coming year. The centerpiece of these plans is ten resolutions – no more, and no less. I’ve had a lot of practice at this, and I’ve discovered that more than ten major resolutions is usually too ambitious, whereas fewer than ten is not ambitious enough. (more…)
US Senator Brian Schatz (D.-Hawaii)
The latest, and at age 40 youngest, US Senator is Hawaiian Democrat Brian Emanuel Schatz. He obtained his lofty post not by election but by appointment. As an incumbent, he will enjoy a built-in advantage when he campaigns for election in late 2014, which he intends to do.

Apropos of Noel Ignatiev, How the Irish Became White (New York and London: Routledge, 1995)
What are here called the ‘whiteness historians’ ought not to be confused with ‘Whiteness Studies’ (WS) or ‘critical race studies’ (or certain other new ‘disciplines’ favored by ‘the New Know-Nothings’), (more…)

Esta es la pregunta: “¿Estamos viviendo en el año 370 dC, 40 años antes de que Alarico saquease Roma?” O “¿Vivimos en el año 270 dC, poco antes de las drásticas medidas correctivas de los emperadores ilirios, que se apartan de la catástrofe, para prolongar la vida del imperio durante otros dos siglos? ”
The title of this essay is somewhat misleading, since I am going to argue that philosophy is relevant to all human endeavors, not just politics. Philosophy is not just metapolitical, but meta-everything. But I know you are interested in political change, so that was my hook to get you reading. Furthermore, I will argue that philosophy is more than just relevant to life, but of paramount importance.
The First World has a plan for you.
You’re supposed to go to college. Learn what to do, what to say, what to think, how to feel. Someone gives you a good grade, pats you on the back and tells you that you’re a “critical thinker.” (more…)
Conservatism is Unrealistic
The Republican Party is useless as a political force. The key battle was not the presidential election of 2012 but the passage of Barack Obama’s health care plan. All of the disparate factions of the American Right joined together to oppose “Obamacare,” and they failed, miserably. (more…)
My whole adult life, I have had my own Christmas tree on only two occasions. The reason is simple: I always spent Christmas back home or with the family of a friend. But even so, I love Christmas trees. (more…)
Recently I experienced the cold fish to the face phenomenon while watching an old episode of Trouble with Father (ABC, 1950–1955), a half-hour TV comedy series starring Stu Erwin and his real-life wife June Collyer. (The show is known under several different names, including The Stu Erwin Show.) (more…)

At first, everyone thought that the draft law on homosexual marriage was one of those booby-traps (in crude terms, asshole traps) by which politicians entertain the gallery, unable to act on real issues. (more…)

El nacionalismo blanco es una idea monstruosa e inmoral en la que la raza blanca, una subespecie biológica única se encuentre a largo plazo en peligro de extinción (debido a la pérdida de su hábitat natural y la competencia de otras subespecies más resistentes invasoras) y se merece las mismas protecciones que las percinas tanasi, búhos manchados y los cóndores de California.

We are approaching Christmas (another name for the winter solstice). Associated with the evergreen tree, Christmas has always been celebrated in European countries since time immemorial as the great feast presaging the revival of nature and life after the repose of winter. (more…)
“You’ll hang higher than Haman!”
Today’s Mad Men, though set in the same era as Advise and Consent, portrays a very different world — in fact, an inversion. (more…)
The concept of “Revolution from the Periphery” is an important contribution to Traditionalist thought as once proud centers of culture sink ever further into decadence. The system of control deployed against whites is strengthening its grip, and “the Collapse” is still a dream. If anything, anarcho-tyranny is becoming more widespread, and the forces pushing radical egalitarianism are removing the velvet glove to reveal the mailed fist beneath.

I would not like to be in a room with any character from Andy Nowicki’s latest novel Heart Killer. Then again, I really wouldn’t know it if I were. Andy Nowicki has written a novel about evil within, about depravity within, about horror within.
In 1766, English writer Samuel Johnson penned a letter to William Drummond, an Edinburgh bookseller, regarding the translation of the Bible into the “Erse or Gaelic language” as biographer James Boswell put it in The Life of Samuel Johnson (1791).
Certain members of “the society in Scotland for propagating Christian knowledge” (undoubtedly meaning the Society in Scotland for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge (SSPCK), opposed translation of the Bible into Scottish Gaelic because it would be contrary to national unity. (more…)

El discurso realizado por Guillaume Faye en la conferencia de American Renaissance del año 2006 fue bastante agitado. La mayoría de la gente ha oído hablar del infame incidente de Michael Hart. Sin embargo, en mi opinión, algo mucho más importante se produjo durante el discurso de Faye, algo que más tarde me pareció revelador.
It may seem ironic for those who are said to have “far Right views,” but perhaps one of the biggest obstacles in the struggle for the West is the far Right’s obsession with the scientific understanding of human races. It is not so much that scientific knowledge about race is irrelevant to our political purpose (which is the struggle for the West), but, rather, that this science is thought to possess a political utility it does not and will never have.
