How You Can Help Counter-Currents
Like most dissident journals of ideas, Counter-Currents depends upon donations to survive. If you want Counter-Currents to thrive, make a donation today.
If you want to send a non-tax deductible donation to Counter-Currents Publishing, you can make two different types of donations:
- A single donation of any size.
- A recurring donation of any size.
I want to make a special pitch today for recurring monthly donations. Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We still have not recovered from the loss of monthly donors after being deplatformed by PayPal in August of 2017, in the moral panic whipped up after Unite the Right in Charlottesville. Let’s rectify that right now. Please use the secure online form below.
You may also send check, money order, or credit card payment by mail. Just print out our donation form in Word or PDF. Our address is:
PO Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
Counter-Currents also takes a variety of crypto currencies:
Our Bitcoin address is: 1ChE5DZVVZJpv8mnJ3fRrtSDrTikBh7uFL
Our Etherium address is: 0x6cB1fd85326739bABf48B80B82a4E8470F98Db7C
Our Litecoin address is: LauRgjKWtSSQPkvsjQwzcRtd9DyVwioLfu
Our Monero address is: 45ijQwamhwMDkE4S1gQ2GS7VG5jp181bYC3rEw71aKdJfYjBhMiiLDYbTKLQY7LdfierEbfNJ9HNAYLj6h39i7paL4q29Bz
Also, as we first announced in October of 2015, you now have two possible destinations for your donations: Counter-Currents Publishing and the Counter-Currents Foundation. The Counter-Currents Foundation is a US 501c3 educational corporation. Donations to it are deductible from US federal income taxes. The purpose of the Counter-Currents Foundation is specifically to promote scholarship and translations connected to the European New Right and allied movements. If you wish to earmark a donation to the Counter-Currents Foundation, or to discuss a particular project you would like to support, please contact me in advance at [email protected].
Please give generously!
Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today. Thank you for your loyalty and support.

Re Zizek. By the way, after the catastrophes of the 20th century, it is a moral and intellectual scandal that someone who espouses any form of Marxism in public is not immediately stoned or at the very least pelted with rotten fruit. But this is no accident, is it.
Marxist=someone who engages in a campaign of psychological warfare against the population to convince them that they should be ruled by Marxist intellectuals. A Marxist is good at propaganda. He’s not good at anything else, but he’s good at propaganda.
Marxists really do look at the population as the enemy. That is why they regard the enemy of the people, the career criminal, as the “Socially Friendly.” They use career criminals to harass and terrorize the population.
Marxism is a scam to put intellectuals in power. They couldn’t care less about the average worker.
Marxists also couldn’t care less about what’s true. To a Marxist, truth is a bourgeois concept. Every claim is evaluated on its political utility, not on whether it conforms to reality. Marxists just figure they will create reality in mass consciousness with their propaganda.
The term cultural Marxist makes perfect sense. Their tactics and goals are exactly the same as those of economic Marxists. The minute the Soviet Union fell every Communist in the west became an environmentalist. The goal is the same: we need to turn the economy over to intellectuals who will tell everybody what to do.
Excellent comment. Marxism is what it is because it comes with unwritten rules.
I found Peterson’s university lectures on Psychology, personality traits and even the Maps of Meaning, to be interesting. When he ventured into politics, I have no use for him.
The fact that Peterson started off the debate by “rebuking” The Communist Manifesto basically tells you all you need to know.
It was never intended to be a serious socio-political text, like Das Kapital, and even if it were, basically nobody alive in 2020 is an orthodox Marxist.
It would be arguing against a Christian, and starting out by making a critique of the Essenes or some Gnostic school nobody believes in anymore.
