Second, you can use Hatreon.

“Hatreon” is like Patreon but for the “haters” who are being purged from Patreon as part of the vast ongoing deplatforming of white advocates and dissident Rightists. Hatreon helps creative dissidents enjoy steady, predictable incomes from patrons who make monthly pledges of support. Just go to my Hatreon profile page and make a pledge. (Use the invite code MAJDRZUDYWLG.)

Hatreon is run by a dissident Rightist like us. Hatreon is highly ethical and takes only a very small percentage of donations to cover their costs. I very much want Hatreon to succeed, so please sign up for an account today. Help Hatreon get off to a strong start — and help Counter-Currents stay in the fight.

Third, Counter-Currents also takes Bitcoin.

Our Bitcoin address is: 1ChE5DZVVZJpv8mnJ3fRrtSDrTikBh7uFL

In the coming weeks, we will begin accepting donations in all digital currencies, and we will publish a tutorial on how you can begin using them.

San Francisco, CA 94122

We are profoundly grateful for the outpouring of generosity from a large number of readers. But we need to hear from all of you. Especially from our monthly donors. Please renew today.

Winter is coming for white advocacy. We must be industrious ants, building up capital and bracing ourselves for further attacks and deplatforming. We can no longer be happy-go-lucky grasshoppers, depending on the kindness and fair play of capitalists. Fear not, we will never quit. But we need to build new institutions, an integrated electronic ethnostate offering everything from domain registration to webhosting to DDOS protection to mailing list management — all controlled by our movement. This is a huge task, and we obviously should have started building it years ago. But when you donate, you are helping us build it today.

Thank you for your loyal readership and generosity.

Greg Johnson

    Interesting talk. Am looking forward to the biography. Like Bolton (and everyone here I guess), I am intrigued about that “super secret file” concerning Yockey. One wonders if it has anything to do with his travels behind the Iron Curtain and/or perhaps connections to more mainstream political figures that we are currently unaware.

    “I’m an American, and I may any day turn Bolshevist, to save my pesos, so I can repeat what I heard a man saying yesterday. He said there are only two great diseases in the world today – Bolshevism and Americanism; and Americanism is the worse of the two, because Bolshevism only smashes your house or your business or your skull, but Americanism smashes your soul.” – The Plumed Serpent by D. H. Lawrence, 1926.

    This is where Sunic, and then Bowden, got the basic idea of “Communism kills the body, but liberalism rots the soul.” In fact, Xena Bakran-Sunic, Tom Sunic’s wife, is apparently a huge Lawrence fan and perhaps she relayed it to Tom.

      Excellent quote, which should be embroidered on banners far and wide.

      Thanks! I was way off in terms of the source, then! I must have read it in something in relation to Yockey, or perhaps I just conflated the two in my own mind. It is certainly a sentiment with which I think Yockey would have agreed.

    Fash aesthetics are important, and Kerry Bolton has a great bearded Anthony Hopkins / bearded Sean Connery aesthetic going on.

    It’s interesting how ideas travel.

    Was Bruno Rizzi’s The Bureaucratization of the World the book by the Italian Marxist that Greg Johnson mentioned? I’ve read of it, and I’ve seen a copy at a library, but I haven’t actually read it.

    To what degree was Francis Parker Yockey acquainted with Carl Schmitt’s thought, and how did he first encounter it? (If I remember correctly, Julien Freund encountered Schmitt’s essay “The Concept of the Political” by chance, and it would have a profound effect on his thinking.)

    According to an article by Christian Bouchet (“Un livre fondamental”), Maurice Bardèche made an unpublished translation of Imperium, which was circulated in roneo form (Bardèche definitely knew English, for his Histoire des femmes refers to English-language sources); I think Bouchet may have even written elsewhere that he got a copy of the translation via Jean Thiriart. Judging by Yannick Sauveur’s recently published biography of Thiriart, there seems to have been some correspondence between Thiriart and Bardèche, so it’s possible that Thiriart had a copy of Bardèche’s translation of Imperium.

    I believe that François Duprat stated that Imperium was a significant influence on the ideology of Europe-Action, a periodical and movement of which Dominique Venner was a leading figure. But Yockey was probably one influence among many, given his obscurity, the limited availability of his writings, and the influence exercised by other thinkers in the milieu of Europe-Action.

    This was great. I may have to come up with a quality Yockey website, while we can still have websites. The controversies about Yockey are as important as the things we agree with. He prompts thought and action. Thanks to Greg and CC for having this post.

    It might be worth tracking down and republishing the article “The Real Culprit,” of which Revilo P. Oliver wrote in The Enemy of Our Enemies:

    “What is probably the most trenchant writing attributed to the [European] Liberation Front is a brief article, ‘The Real Culprit,’ reprinted in Liberty Bell, March 1981, pp. 53-56. The anonymous author claims to be over seventy years old; neither the style nor the argument is Yockey’s, and the article was obviously written after 1970, i.e., at least nine years after his death and twenty years after the Front founded by Yockey disintegrated for a variety of reasons that must be left to his future biographer.”

    Really demonstrates the value of these podcasts. Generated some great ideas which will take Yockey scholarship further.
    Great work Kerry and looking forward to the day when we can back you with the funds your work merits. There is still much to discovered about Yockey and should be the man to do it. And to think it all started with Ian Bing. He was very courtly in a charmingly old fashioned way.
