About Here’s the Thing

In his interviews, Greg Johnson is known for expressing radical and sometimes shocking ideas in a calm, rational, unapologetic manner. Here’s the Thing collects ten of his best interviews from 2014 to 2018.

The interviews with Darryl Cooper, Tara McCarthy, and Lana Lokteff offer a basic introduction to White Nationalism and the New Right. The first of two conversations with Hugh MacDonald focuses on the treacherous charge of “racism” and different ways to handle it. The conversation with Millennial Woes answers the centrist, civic nationalist objections of video commentator Sargon of Akkad. The discussion with J.M. answers common questions and objections from “normies.”

The volume then takes a more philosophical turn. A second conversation with Hugh MacDonald offers a nuanced defense of some forms of vanity, pretentiousness, and snobbery. Then Johnson discusses the foundations of White Nationalism and the New Right with an anonymous philosophy professor.

The book ends with two brief interviews with mainstream journalists Maureen O’Connor and Liz Bruening that were never published.

Topics include White Nationalism, the New Right, multiculturalism, imperialism, ethnonationalism, the Jewish question, the concept of race, populism, elitism, economic policy, sexual politics, modernity, metapolitics, and hegemony, as well as such thinkers as Plato, Aristotle, Vico, Nietzsche, Spengler, Schmitt, and Heidegger.

Here’s the Thing is offers an accessible introduction to the basics of White Nationalism and the New Right — and how they touch on a wide variety of philosophical, political, and cultural issues — in a relaxed and conversational style.
