The White Nationalist Who Stole Christmas
Overall, the White Nationalist movement is positive. The “positivity” of the movement emanates from our collective ethnonationalistic desire for transformational change. (more…)

Blood and Faith: Christianity in American White Nationalism
Syracuse, N.Y.: Syracuse University Press, 2017
When I was in graduate school, one of my professors likened grading undergraduate exams to fever dreams, in which the events of the day — or, in his case, a whole semester’s worth of lectures — come back in garbled form. I have had the same experience reading about my ideas in the mainstream media. (more…)

The Christian Question in White Nationalism
There is a strong anti-Christian tendency in contemporary White Nationalism.
The argument goes something like this: Christianity is one of the primary causes of the decline of the white race for two reasons. (more…)

The Architecture of Imre Makovecz
Imre Makovecz was one of the great architects of the late twentieth century and the most notable proponent of organic architecture in Hungary. His works are characterized by an idiosyncratic style that melds modern influences with motifs inspired by Hungarian folklore. He designed nearly five hundred buildings over the course of his life, about half of which were built.

Bring Back Prohibition!
We all know the story.
Maybe we heard it in our high school history class.
Maybe we went through a libertarian phase where it was repeated ad nauseam as an argument for legalizing marijuana, cocaine, meth, and other hardcore substances—even if you dislike the substances themselves and would rather see them disappear from the face of the Earth.
Maybe we even repeated it ourselves! (more…)

What Does Syria Mean for Us?
The Syrian Civil War is practically over. The Islamic State is a shadow of a shadow of its former self, controlling no major cities or towns in Iraq or Syria. Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced a massive military withdrawal from Syria. (more…)

The Many Faces of the Jewish Elite, Part 1
This is Why We Have Anti-Semitism
Part 2 here
As I was scrolling through Gab the other day, I witnessed a remarkable little dig at the Jews. A well-known Dissident Right personality named John Rivers shared a tweet by Commentary Magazine editor John Podhorertz’s and commented, “look at this fucking Jew.”
Before I even had a chance to read J-Pod’s tweet, my normie instincts kicked in, and I thought to myself, “My, that was pretty nasty, wasn’t it?” Like many of us, I was neither born with the red pill, nor did I have it thrust upon me. Instead, I achieved it. With the blacks, Hispanics, and Muslims, it took only a few years after paying my own taxes for the first time. But for the Jewish Question, alas, it took decades. (more…)

What Socrates Knew:
Socratic Ignorance, Eros, & the Daimonion, Part 2 of 2
On August 31st, 1999 I gave the second lecture course called “What Socrates Knew.” What follows is a transcription of the second half of that lecture by V.S. The readings referred to are passages from Plato’s dialogues Euthydemus, Apology, Theages, and Symposium. The thirty Socrates theses referred to are listed below, as are links to the audio of the lecture.
