The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
Reality: The Antidote for Wokefulness

[1]1,184 words

Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000 this year. Thus far, we have received 696 donations totaling $99,475.84, for which we are enormously grateful. Thus we are almost two-thirds of the way there! We will keep the fundraiser going as long as needed but the ultimate deadline is the end of the year, less than three months away.

To help us reach our goal, a generous donor has offered a $5,000 matching grant, so the next $5,000 you give will be doubled! So far, we have received $2,032 toward this grant. You can find details on how you can give below.

If there is anything that unifies the Dissident Right, it is its rootedness in reality. Truth, after all, is merely an acknowledgement of what exists in reality. Our greatest thinkers have always put a premium on reality. For Giambattista Vico, it was a metaphysical necessity that “the order of ideas must follow the order of things.” For Leopold van Ranke, it was essential that history be written “wie es eigentlich gewesen ist” (“as it actually happened”). And for William Carlos Williams, it was axiomatic that poetry have “no ideas but in things.”

Reality, however, is in short supply these days. The progressive project can be distilled down to an attempt to deny reality in whatever form it assumes. Yearning for a utopia that does not and cannot exist, the typical Leftist is like a little child who tightly holds his hands to his ears and begins caterwauling so as not to hear the manifold truths that constitute reality. Reality is such a repugnant concept for Leftists that they will go to any length to deny its existence, hence the concerted efforts of Silicon Valley and its establishment Democrat/Republican uniparty employees to shut down and anathematize any individual, organization, or publication that dares to utter the truths of reality.

Counter-Currents is a bastion of reality in a world gone mad. It provides a sanctuary for writers to write about and readers to read about and comment upon the truths of reality. But Counter-Currents is more than just a depository of truth; it is a community of the mind in which persons who agree on the essentials – but not necessarily the particulars – of the solutions to the problems facing our race can come together and discuss issues in a collegial manner. As such, it is the true heir to the intellectual heritage of the university, that once-proud institution that sadly exists today in name only.

Just as important as the reality-based truthfulness of its content, the writing and the commentary found on Counter-Currents is of a literary and aesthetic level far beyond that found in almost any academic or high-brow journal of opinion. The beauty of the prose found on Counter-Currents bespeaks the beauty of the ideas contained therein. It is an intimation of the beautiful society that will exist when our race regains its collective sanity and restores itself to its rightful place in the world.

In a sane world, Tito Purdue and Spencer Quinn would be best-selling novelists with Hemingwayesque reputations. In a world more concerned with quality than diversity, Anthony Ludovici, Francis Parker Yockey, and Savitri Davi would be ranked among our most important thinkers. And in an intellectual environment in which that term is not an oxymoron, Ricardo Duchesne would hold dual Ivy League and Oxbridge professorships.

Alas, it has been our fate to live in “interesting times,” as they say. Despite the Left’s best efforts to the contrary, however, reality is making a comeback, and Counter-Currents deserves much of the credit for its obduracy. Every day, more and more white persons are awakened out of the deceit and sloth of wokefulness. The weight of reality is proving too much for the lies of the Left to bear. But for Counter-Currents to continue its essential part in this battle it needs your financial, as well as moral, support. I urge all readers to donate generously to Counter-Currents in its annual fundraising campaign.

Here is how you can help.

Credit Cards

Currently, we are unable to take credit card donations except through Entropy. Entropy is a site that collects “paid chat” or “superchat” donations for live streamers. But they can take donations any time.

Just go to our Entropy page [2] and select “send paid chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up. (You can make a donation, even when Entropy says that we are not currently livestreaming.)

If you want to leave a question or comment, they will be read and discussed on the next Counter-Currents Radio livestream, which air on Sundays noon PST/3pm EST on DLive: https://dlive.tv/Counter-Currents [3]

Money Transfers

If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact [email protected] [4].

Gift Cards

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 either send gift cards as donations (either electronically or through the mail) or you can use them to make donations. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.

Checks and Money Orders

[5]Sometimes the old ways are best. The least “de-platformable” way to send donations to Counter-Currents is to put a check or money order in the mail. Simply print and complete the Word [6] or PDF [7] donation form and mail it to:

Counter-Currents Publishing, Ltd.
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA
[email protected]

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.

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.

Crypto-Currencies

In addition to old-fashioned paper donations, those new-fangled crypto-currencies are a good way to circumvent censorious credit card corporations.

The Counter-Currents Foundation

Note: Donations to Counter-Currents Publishing are not tax-deductible. We do, however, have a 501c3 tax-exempt educational corporation called The Counter-Currents Foundation. If you want to make a tax-deductible gift, please email Greg Johnson at [email protected] [10]. You can send donations by mail to:

The Counter-Currents Foundation
P.O. Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122
USA

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 [11]” contains many helpful suggestions.

Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today.
