The Counter-Currents 2015 Summer Fundraiser
My European Listening Tour
Since our last update, on September 17th, we have received 21 donations totaling $6,350.00, in amounts ranging from $5 to $5,150. Three of these donations were merely the first of ongoing monthly pledges, which are especially helpful. I want to thank all our donors, new and old. You make Counter-Currents possible.
Our total is now $22,724.88. We are thus $17,275.12 from last year’s goal of $40,000 (and much further from the goal of $120,331 set by the SJW signalers at Care2petitions, who are trying to shut Counter-Currents down). With basically three weeks to go before the fundraiser ends on Halloween, I have no doubt that we will make it to 40K, but now is the time for someone to step forward with a large matching grant offer, to help us get there.

One of our donors put forward money earmarked for another European Listening Tour. I flew to Europe on September 23rd, and I will return on October 15th.
On Saturday, September 26th, I spoke in Stockholm at a meeting arranged by Logik Förlag, the publisher of the Swedish translation of my New Right vs. Old Right. The title of my talk was “Towards the Tipping Point,” and it is based on a chapter from a book I am writing called The White Nationalist Manifesto. The audio of my talk will appear on YouTube in the near future.
Also speaking at the same event were Matt Tait from England (YouTube) and Jan Milld from Sweden (YouTube). There were about 80 people in the audience. I was told it could have been larger, but there were two other large Swedish nationalist events happening the same day, which is a nice problem to have.
As is usual with these events, for me, the most important work was done outside the official program, in informal discussions with speakers, organizers, and audience members. Of all the nationalist movements in Europe today, I find the Swedes one of the most impressive in terms of quantity and quality of young, intelligent, and highly committed people. On the surface, Sweden seems one of the most hopeless countries in Europe. But I am convinced that with the Sweden Democrats polling 27%, that surface is brittle, the system beneath it is increasingly hollow, the average Swede’s political slumbers are increasingly troubled by nightmares, and a great national awakening is stirring to life.
On Saturday, October 3rd, I spoke for the third time at the London Forum. Again, there were about 80 people present. My talk was entitled “A Refutation of Libertarianism,” also drawn from The White Nationalist Manifesto. Audio will be available in due course.
As usual, the London Forum is a virtual summit conference of nationalists from around the world. The other speakers were Sebastian Ronin from Canada, who carefully avoided making eye contact with me the whole time but had the cheek to take a swipe at me in his speech, suggesting that American White Nationalists be blackballed from the London Forum (the spirit of resentment is strong in this one) (YouTube); David Yorkshire of Mjolnir Magazine, who in my opinion gave the best talk; Ruuben Kaalep from Estonia, who spoke on nationalism in his homeland (YouTube); Kai Murros from Finland, who presented a somewhat “Old Right” (and Old Left, e.g. Maoist) but nonetheless beatific vision of a national revolution (YouTube); and Mindaugas Sidaravičius from Lithuania, who reported on nationalism in his homeland.
Again, the most productive work of the weekend came in informal discussions with a host of nationalists from England and around the world. I recorded interviews with Mindaugas Sidaravičius and Ruuben Kaalep, and I will also do interviews with David Yorkshire and Kai Murros.
I am now currently in Budapest, meeting with Swedish nationalists, Hungarian Traditionalists, and Counter-Currents writers and supporters from all over central Europe. I will report on the remainder of my listening tour when I return to the United States.
I want to thank Jez Turner and Mick Brooks of the London Forum, the team from Logik Forlag, and the donor who covered the cost of my ticket. None of these networking activities would be possible without the support of our readers. Please pledge your support today.
