Once again, Counter-Currents is without a credit card processor. But it’s worse than ever, folks. We have not been dropped by our credit card processor. In fact, when the usual suspects pressured them to drop their dissident clients, they stood by us. So instead, our enemies managed to put our credit card processor out of business.
This is a whole new level of tyranny.
In 2019, Counter-Currents was deplatformed from 80% of the global book market (Amazon and Barnes and Noble). They did not just go after our political works. Their goal was not just censorship, but economic destruction.
Let that sink in.
Amazon is one of the biggest corporations on the planet, owned by the richest man on the planet, and they have targeted me personally for economic destruction.
In 2019, we are also deplatformed from at least four credit-card processors (I’ve lost count).
I would be happy to pay whistleblowers for verifiable and actionable information on how these campaigns of deplatforming take place: who the ultimate string-pullers are, who their inside people are, and how their preferences become corporate policy.
I was even arrested in Norway based on fake news concocted by Marxists and deported from the country to stop me from giving a speech at the Scandza Forum. Apparently, this was the first time in modern Norwegian history that someone has been arrested to prevent him from speaking his mind.
I take it all as a compliment.
It was crushingly stressful, but despite our enemies’ best efforts — indeed, sometimes because of them — 2019 was our best year ever in terms of traffic.
Our enemies are afraid. They know that the work we do is highly effective. They know we would wipe the floor with them if they ever allowed an open debate. Therefore, they do their best to silence us, and their preferred mode of attack is to cut off funds by terrorizing payment processing companies until they are afraid to work with me. And when that didn’t work this time, they went after the company itself.
Let that sink in.
Our enemies are willing and able to shut down third-party companies simply for doing business with Counter-Currents and others like us. That is how powerful and motivated they are, and that is how afraid they are of the work we do.
Crises like this chip away at one’s morale. There’s only so much stress and demoralization that the human organism can take. That’s why they are doing this. They want to break us.
But when the present moment seems particularly bad, you need to take a step back and look at the big picture. I don’t have to think back to all the hardships my ancestors survived from the Ice Age to Jamestown and beyond, although that helps. I just think of Counter-Currents itself: what we do, everything we have accomplished up to now, the setbacks we have survived, and the people who make it possible.
Counter-Currents has been up and running for almost a decade now, with new articles every weekday. We have grown tremendously, from 6,145 unique visitors in June 2010 to our peak of 240,512 in November 2019. We have a roster of fearsomely good writers. Beyond that, because we target an audience with an IQ over 120, we specialize in reaching the very people who have the greatest potential to change society in the long run — and that is why the enemy is afraid. We know that we have intelligent and resourceful readers, and now we need your help.
It is our custom to begin our annual fundraiser on June 11th, the anniversary of Counter-Currents going online. Last year our goal was $100,000, and thanks to our donors, we made it. But because fundraising keeps getting harder and harder, we are going to start this year’s campaign today, and this time we are aiming for $150,000, for two reasons. First, last year CC lost money. Second, I want to send a message to our enemies. I’ll let you use your imagination as to what that message is.
If Counter-Currents is to survive, we need to habituate our supporters to making payments and donations the old-fashioned way: by check, money order, or even cash stuffed into physical envelopes and put in the mail.
Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
(Please ignore the credit card payment option listed on the forms. Those no longer apply.)
Thank you, Boomers, for keeping your checkbooks, envelopes, and stamps. There are youngsters reading this site who have never written a check or put a letter in the mail. But sometimes the old ways are best.
Bill Payment Services
If you wish to make monthly donations by mail, see if your bank has a bill payment service. Then all you need to do is set up a monthly check to be dispatched by mail to our PO box. This check can be made out to Counter-Currents or to Greg Johnson. After the initial bother of setting it up, you never have to think about it again.
If your bank makes free money transfers in the US, you can send us money that way. Please email me at [email protected].
Gift cards are a useful way to make donations. Gift cards are available with all the major credit cards as well as from major retailers. You can send gift cards either electronically or through the mail. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.
Another way to support us is those new-fangled crypto-currencies.
- Click here to go to our crypto donation page.
- Click here for a basic primer on how to get started using crypto. Do not, however, use COINBASE. COINBASE will not allow you to send money to Counter-Currents. (Yes, it is that bad.)
Because we need to wean our customers and donors off of credit cards, I have reconfigured all of Counter-Currents’ book order pages to walk people through the processes of mailing paper or sending crypto.
I have also rounded the prices of our books, and in many cases significantly reduced them, to make it easier for you to calculate payment.
Remember Us in Your Will
Finally, we would like to broach a very delicate topic: your will. If you are planning your estate, please think about how you can continue helping the cause even after you are gone. The essay “Majority Estate Planning” contains many helpful suggestions.
Thank you again for your loyal readership and generous support.
