Why I Write for Counter-Currents
If I ever get doxxed, I have prepared a simple explanation for why I write for Counter-Currents which I will share with family members, friends, colleagues, employers, neighbors, and anyone else who’ll listen:
I do not want to be a minority in my own country.
If I had to boil it down to one sentence, that would be it. Sure, I have a healthy sense of racial tribalism. I’m also a race realist who can see the disaster of multiracialism for what it is. I notice the abhorrent way in which most non-whites treat each other in their own countries and quite rationally don’t want anything like that happening in my country.
Ultimately, however, it is about having a home within a homeland. This is something everyone wants and should have if they are willing to fight for it. Writing for Counter-Currents is my way of fighting for it so that when the real fighting occurs, whites will have greater cohesion and faith in themselves. This is an advantage we will not be able to do without when we contemplate first and last things.
Counter-Currents provides a way for white nationalists, identitarians, and advocates (and their allies) to not just share information and ideas but to maintain a vibrant and formidable community. Every day, with every article and interview and book published, this community is strengthened, and the dissolution which can affect all communities through neglect is kept in check. This is a crucial thing considering how our enemies are arrayed against us, always giving us every reason to back down or submit. Without the ties of community, it will be easier for all of us to lose faith or hope. And without faith or hope, we really don’t have a chance.
I discovered Counter-Currents in 2014 when I was doing research for my forthcoming novel White Like You. I remember I was investigating right-wing economic theory and stumbled across Greg Johnson’s “Money for Nothing.” It was then when I realized that there was a whole world of Rightist thought that I still needed to familiarize myself with. I also realized that there were people undergoing the same changes I was as I became more politically and racially aware. Counter-Currents offered such an astonishing breadth of discussion that I felt almost like a student again, learning from square one; it was frightening and exhilarating at the same time.
Great sites will do this for you, and thereby become indispensible, not just for one’s own edification, but for making a tangible real world impact. For Greg Johnson, this is metapolitics, the alteration of our current culture in order to reintroduce forbidden yet crucial ideas into the realm of respectability. But even with great sites like Counter-Currents, this takes time. This is why Counter-Currents depends on its readers and donors for its survival.
Since last week’s update, Counter-Currents has received 18 donations (including 5 pledges for monthly support) totaling $1,954.50. This brings us up to a total of $46,928.06 raised for our fundraiser, almost 80% of our goal of $60,000.
This is all wonderful, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. But the battle continues. If there are those out there who appreciate Counter-Currents and have not yet given, please consider it. Any contribution, no matter how small, will help ensure that Counter-Currents continue building and strengthening our community, which will give us every advantage on the day when white people will have to fight for our survival. And make no mistake, that day is coming.

Counter-Currents, like all advocates of dissident ideas, depends upon the generosity of readers like you to survive and thrive. If you are a past donor, welcome back. If you are contemplating making your first donation, do it in thanks to the past donors that made it possible for you to find Counter-Currents, and pay if forward so others can experience the same delight in discovery. There are several ways to help out.
First, you can use a credit card.
We can take single donations or monthly donations through our credit card form. If you sign up for a monthly donation today, the first payment will be charged a month from now. If you want your first donation to be made today, put that amount in the one-time donation box as well as in the monthly donation box. If you want your donation to start in one month, please enter 0.00 in the one-time donation box.
“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.
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.
Finally, you can also mail donations to:
PO Box 22638
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.
