Greg Johnson talks to Daniel Friberg, CEO of Arktos Media and Wiking Mineral, a co-founder of the Swedish metapolitical think tank Motpol, and the author of a new book out in Swedish and English, The Real Right Returns: A Handbook for the True Opposition (London: Arktos, 2015). Topics include:

  • No, his name does not echo
  • How he became a nationalist
  • The ethnic situation in Sweden today
  • How he discovered the New Right
  • The importance of metapolitics
  • The puerile rhetoric of revolution on the Right
  • Real (ethnic) nationalism vs. civic and cultural nationalism
  • Nationalism in Sweden today
  • The fallacy of accelerationism
  • Media witch hunts in Sweden and how to counter them
  • Why nationalists should not expect gender parity in our movement
  • The biological reason why men fight and take risks and women do not
  • Friberg’s metapolitical dictionary
  • The importance of Guillaume Faye’s concept of “archeofuturism”
  • Enough gloom and doom on the Right; why we will win
  • The need for a concrete vision of the world we are going to create
  • The intellectual and political adventure of the Right

    Regarding your tactless question at the beginning, why would you assume that your readers are too stupid to understand that Europeans have adopted Hebrew names for the past 2,000 years, or that a name such as the interviewee’s is in no way atypical for a genuine Swede, or an American for that matter?

      You lack a sense of humor, I see.

    Regarding the “gloom and doom” mood within the Right, I think it’s unavoidable up to a point. The case is, many people come to Right because of their pessimism, which allows them to become aware of the decline of Civilization, that something is terribly wrong. One good example of this psychological type is Millennial Woes. Of course, once you unplug yourself from the Matrix, pessimism becomes a burden. You can still keep a certain degree of intellectual pessimism, but you also need, like Gramsci, an optimism of the will.

    Aparte from that, excellent interview.

    Daniel Friberg’s discussion of his background raises a question: why do we often hear of racial prejudice, but never of racial postjudice? Postjudice is a perfectly legitimate word and antonym for prejudice.

    The only conclusion our enemies want us to reach is that of death. They do not want us to reach the conclusions of observation and ratiocination.

    Great to hear someone finally speaking truth about Albania, piece of European soil given to artificially created ”nation” to keep the Balkans burning, after the Balkan wars.

    I know it’s irrelevant for the main topic of discussion, but I couldn’t resist not to comment on this little detail. Thanks for the interview.

      I fail to see how this comment fits the guidelines Greg has set for this site, unless approving it was an attempt to illustrate and inspire contempt for the petty nationalist mindset which composed it, in which case it succeeds wonderfully.

        I fail to see how is stating a little known fact regarding European history and history of Serbian, thus white people, commented by mr Daniel Friberg and mr Greg Johnson in this interview, ”petty nationalism”, unless you are either a) Albanian, b) anti-Serbian c) just a muslim or d) all of the above, which is perfectly fine, but on a website centered around, among the other, perseverance of Nationalistic ideology and Traditional values – be it Germanic, British, Anglo-Saxon, Nordic or any other part of white identity, your comment shows one dimensional subjectivity, anti-white attitude and general butthurt. Have a nice day.
