November Newsletter & Fall Fundraiser
How Big is Our Movement?
Dear Friend of Counter-Currents:
November was a good month at Counter-Currents.
- We published two new books: Leo Yankevich’s Journey Late at Night and Andy Nowicki’s Lost Violent Souls
- We published a number of new Kindle and Nook E-books: Savitri Devi’s Defiance, Gold in the Furnace, and The Non-Hindu Indians and Indian Unity; Juleigh Howard-Hobson’s “I do not belong to the Baader-Meinhof Group” and Other Poems; and the aforementioned titles by Yankevich and Nowicki.
- We resumed Friday Counter-Currents Radio podcasts.
- We resumed Wednesday philosophy lecture podcasts.
- We resumed weekly episodes of Robert Stark’s The Stark Truth on Thursdays.
- We added 76 new posts and podcasts to the website, including Ted Sallis on “Racial Purity, Ethnic Genetic Interests, and the Cobb Case,” Gregory Hood on “The Kennedy Assassination and the Big Lie,” and important articles by Kerry Bolton, F. Roger Devlin, and others.
- Andrew Hamilton, one of our most popular writers, returned after a brief hiatus.
Since our last update, we received ten new donations totaling $370, for which we wish to thank each and every donor. That means that our total is $38,569.29, which means that we are now $11,430.71 away from our annual goal of $50,000.
$50,000 sounds like a lot, but I have been crunching some numbers to put it in perspective.
How big is the White Nationalist/New Right/racially-conscious community world-wide? Counter-Currents does not appeal to everyone in that community, but we do appeal to those who read English and are more intellectually and culturally inclined.
So how many people visit Counter-Currents?
In the last few months that I had access to usable web statistics, Counter-Currents had more than 80,000 unique visitors/month. Each of those months, we had about 50,000 return visitors, i.e., people who had come to Counter-Currents before. (The rest were first-time visitors, mostly from search engines.) So, if every regular Counter-Currents visitor chipped in $1/year, we would make our goal. Some readers donate much more than $1/year, and yet we are still far from our goal.
Of those 50,000 readers, how many of them are hard-core readers? If I define hard-core readers as those who read every article on the website, we have about 2,500 hard-core readers. So, if each of our hard-core readers chipped in $20/year, we would make our goal. Some of our hard-core readers donate much more than that, and yet we are still far from our goal.
Just for fun, I will define ultra hard-core Counter-Currents readers as those who will go so far as to listen to my lectures on Plato. That number hovers just over 1,000. For Plato! So, if each of our ultra hard-core readers chipped in $50/year, we would make our goal.
I also took five months of statistics and looked at readers and donors per country. Most of our readers are from the United States, but if you compare readership with population, the top countries in terms of Counter-Currents readers per capita are:
- The Netherlands
The vast majority of our donations also come from the United States, but in terms of dollars donated per capita, the top countries are:
It is interesting that the would-be North American New Right has such solid support in Scandinavia! (It is odd, too, that Denmark and Iceland are rather far from the rest of the Scandinavian countries.) I would love to hear your thoughts on the reasons for these numbers.
But as far as our fundraiser goes, the lessons here are clear enough.
First, if you are a Counter-Currents donor, be proud, because you are among a very small group of people.
Second, most regular Counter-Currents readers, even the hard-core ones, even the ultra hard-core ones, are merely here to consume free information from the internet. If this is your policy, I am sure you are thinking that you can afford to do it, because other people will pick up the slack. Well, unfortunately, a lot of other people think the same way, and it is leading to consequences that none of you want. So make this your day to get off the bench and into the game. Because, given the odds so far, other people will not do it for you.
To help Counter-Currents, you can make two different types of donations:
- A single donation of any size.
- A recurring donation of any size.
Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We have added several new levels for recurring donations. Please visit our Donations page for more information.
We can also customize the amount of a monthly donation.
There are several ways to make one-time donations:
- The easiest is through Paypal. For a one-time donation, just use the following button:
- You can send check, money order, or credit card payment by mail. Just print out our donation form in Word or PDF.
- You can make a secure credit card donation direct from our Donation page.
Please give generously!
Thank you for your loyal readership and support.

A Swede here! I’d say I’m close to hard-core but skip some articles that doesn’t interest me.
I think the reason that Scandinavia and the Netherlands are in the “top” is that we are small countries with a relatively good grasp of English. Being small means that there are fewer local writers and understanding English at a higher level means that CC is an option. I’ve also always felt that the Dutch have a closer kinship to us Scandinavians than say the English or the German. That might just be me though.
Iceland’s absence is probably due to the fact that it’s a very very small country and Denmark is well… Denmark. =) It’s hard to explain, but the Danes are special. A great people, no doubt, and they probably need outside inspiration less than say my country, Sweden.
Thanks for your input on this. I think that the very high level of English literacy in Scandinavia and the Netherlands is an important factor, to be sure. The fact that these are relatively rich countries also explains the generosity of donors there.
Sweden has a very active nationalist scene in part, I think, because they have been so hard hit with multiculturalist foolishness. Their annual “Identitarian Idea” conferences sound worthwhile. Within the limits of my extremely limited Swedish, these sites look quite interesting:
Denmark, with comparatively sensible immigration policies, has nothing comparable on the net. It looks like a case of “the worse, the better.”
It is a mystery why somebody would be a regular reader without contributing anything. A lot of us doing a little can help a lot. If you’re worried about keeping your privacy, Mr. Snowden has shown that that’s not possible anyway.
One can always stuff cash in a greeting card if one is concerned about privacy.
Possibly too many people are too embarrassed to send in a mere dollar bill? The $700/month which Greg receives from the Amazon links is a fine example of “pennies from heaven.”
And don’t forget that even a dollar bill mailed in gives you bragging rights for being a supporter. We still talk about the widow and her two mites and that was 2,000 years ago!!!
This makes a lot of sense.
Greg, now that I’m done with grad school, married, and my life is finally stabilizing a bit, it’s my intention to up my recurring monthly donation after the new year. Thanks for all that you do and for maintaing such a wonderful site and, above all, actually publishing quality books. As I’ve said countless times on here, NO ONE else is doing that. I would also remind readers that Greg has rights to the entire Savitri Devi archive! That alone is worth donating to CC! Who, honestly, cannot afford $10/Month unless you are perhaps a monastic?? Do we even need such people in this movement?
I hope that you meet your goal, Greg, and I look forward to another year of CC and new titles.
Thanks for everything you have done.
I’m curious, how much of your fundraising comes from us who use your amazon links?
We receive about $700/month now from the Amazon links, which pays for a lot of monthly expenses.
I never read any of the articles through, but that is only because I have to do my “inter-netting” at the library. Long live Counter-Currents!
Millions of scandinavians emigrated to America in the 19. and 20. centuries, so most of us still have lots of family or at least distant relatives there. So it makes sense for us to support the white nationalist movement in North America in an ethnic-genetic-interests perspective (as described by Frank Salter).
Besides, “our own” governments have made free speech and far right organisations practically illegal here at home, so our support for the cause simply has to be channeled in this direction. The few “movements” that are still legal has a distinct kosher profile, so you are cut off from discussing the jewish aspect of multiculturalism anyway.
Add to that that CC has a much higher esthetic and intellectual standard and style than for instance Stormfront or Vigrid.
Thanks, this is helpful.
The comment ” If you’re worried about keeping your privacy, Mr. Snowden has shown that that’s not possible anyway.” by Fynn above convinced me, I have sent a small donation affordable for a grad student. I will try to send monthly donations. I regard counter-currents as the most important initiative for european/white nationalists in the english-speaking world. I hope and think you’re on the right track to have a noticable influence on the historical trajectory of the Faustian man.
About the situation in Scandinavia, I agree with Suiones in the comment above. My view is also that Denmark actually has come quite far in resolving the deadly multicultural situation. Sure, things are far from perfect, and there are many non-europeans in Denmark, but the official Denmark has actually reacted against the dogmas of multimulturalism and it seems from Sweden, they are steering out from this situation, wounded, but alive and with a will to live on. It seems that the elites in Denmark actually wants Denmark and the Danish people to live on. As the mainstream political parties in Denmark (for instance, the Social Democrats that are in power at the moment) pursues policies that would even seem to be “controversial” for the Sweden Democrats (weak nationalist populist parti in Sweden) to pursue, there’s no real need for Danes to engage in a nationalistic struggle, as most of the mainstream parties are implicitly nationalistic.
Of course, the development in Sweden is just the opposite. The political, financial and medial elites are determined to destroy Sweden and the swedish people, and they have come quite far. After the election 2010, where the Sweden Democrats took place in partliament with 5.7% of the votes, the establishment openly pushed the multicultural agenda further to the extreme and the immigrant flooding has increased, and at the moment it’s on all-time high with refugees from Syria. Sweden has decided to grant residence permit to ALL of the refugees that manage to find their way to Sweden (Sweden is the ONLY country in the world to do this). Of course, this is national suicide being commited this very moment. As a results, 2000-2500 Syrians enter Sweden on a weekly basis, right this moment. Denmark receives 2000 Syrians a year, and decided to cancel giving recidence permits to them just the other week. Finland receives around 2000 refugees anually, all categories (Sweden around 50 000 this year). Finland, as Denmark, has also an establishment that are implicitly nationalist, even to a much larger degree. My view is that Finland is the Scandinavian country that has suffered the least from the multicultural agenda, as a result of their sober outlook on themselfs and the world.
As of Norway, they are in between of Denmark and Sweden in terms of the multicultural situation, but it seems things are moving in the right path in Norway politically, but not as strongly (yet) and quickly as in Denmark. With this I mean that the norwegian establishment actually are dealing and acknowledging the negative impact of non-european refugees on the society and are taking action to prevent some of it. In Sweden, the elites are still rabbling the multicultural mantras about how wonderful negroes, arabs, and so, are, and how much our culture has been enriched by these savages, always blaming the swedish people for being “racist” and so on. In Sweden, the political establishment has gone more utterly mad than no one thought they ever could. I sincerely believe that Sweden will suffer from civil war in 10-20 years, if things continue as they are.
The prime minister in Sweden Fredrik Reinfeldt has openly stated that he agreed on an refugee deal giving any relative to Somalies asylum in Sweden in order “to punish” voters who voted on the Sweden Democrats (http://www.friatider.se/reinfeldt-erknner-migrationsuppgrelsen-var-en-bestraffning-av-vljarna) . This is just small selection, I can go on forever about the madness in Sweden.
As for Iceland, they are a small country that is even explicitly nationalist (even though they don’t recognize this themself since they are so homogenous). They have not suffered anything from multiculturalism, they have virtually no non-european immigrants (apart from small numbers of asian women and american blacks) and I would estimate the non-europeans (racially) to 2-4 percent (or even less). The icelanders also have a extremely strong sense of their nordic heritage and culture, they read the Eddas in public high-schools and they actually have birth-rates above 2 (which is rare in Europe among whites). Overall, Iceland is a very healthy society in comparison to the present-day Sweden. As such, they are in no need of explicit nationalism.
I totally agree with about everything you just said. But the reason, why is the situation in Sweden som much worse than in the other nordic countries, that is still a mystery – or is it? Has it perhaps something to do with WW2, and the fact that the jews could remain a strong minority in Sweden while their relatives in Norway and Denmark were shipped off to camps in Poland? And among the swedish jews was a certain family Bonnier, even more powerful than the swedish royal family…
I think the single most important factor is the jewish media dominance in Sweden, and amongst them the most influential are the Bonnier clan, as you say. They lead the “attack” on Sweden during the 1960s and 1970s by promoting the multicultural agenda, of course lifting forward how important it was for the minorities (Jews, Gypsies and Saami at the time) in Sweden be acknowledged and have extra minorities rights, etc, and of course the Swedish people were in great guilt to them, and so on. This debate was initiated and lead by the newspaper DN (Bonnier owned and lead, and the most prominent in Sweden, certainly the most influental when it comes to politics, even more so back then) where a small group of jews promoted the multicultural agenda and was lobbying amongst the politicians. This lead to the official decision in parliament 1975 that Sweden would “become multicultural”. There’s a book called “Hur Sverige blev en mångkultur” written by the pseudonym Meister Eckehart that tells the story of how Sweden became multicultural, exposing the jewish role, and so on. Here’s an review of the book: https://www.realisten.se/2007/08/01/hur-sverige-blev-en-mangkultur/
Sweden also saw an influx of jews from Poland in the 1960:s. These were jews that was chased away from Poland due to their subversive activities. Many of them today have their hands dirty conducting their subversive activities in Sweden. Maciej Zaremba, for instance, is a journalist working at DN that recently attacked Norway and one of those who came to Sweden from Poland during the 1960s.
There are other factors as well that all interact and amplify each other, such as the massive guilt-feelings amongst the political elite of Sweden due to the role of Sweden in WWII, the racial classifications and the institute of race biology at Uppsala university (the first in the world!) and the national program of eugenics that was conducted from 1920:s to almost 1970:s I think. (Here, many gypsies, people with mental illness and so on were sterilized). I think also the role of the Swedish banking and industrial magnet family Wallenberg is also quite pronounced, at least when it comes to the latest decade and the support of Fredrik Reinfeldt. This is an extremely influential family in Sweden during the whole of 20th century, and I think in the present generation, at least one of them has married a jewess. They are also very much entangled in the Bilderbergs and so on.
I’m just hoping that since the situation is so bad, the reaction (which I believe is forming) will be equally strong!
