Healing Racial Trauma with Magic Mushrooms

Phil Eiger Newmann, Shroom with a View, 2020.

1,259 words

Imagine repeatedly dosing yourself with the most potent psychedelics known to mankind and still seeing the world entirely in black and white.

Were you aware that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) have used natural psychedelic substances as psychological healing agents for thousands of years, only for the white man to barge in and muck up everything like he always does? Read more …

Top Five (or so) Books I’ve Read in the Year of COVID-19

Johann Wilhelm Preyer, Still Life with Champagne, 1885.

960 words

Well, 2020 is one heck of a year. It’s certainly been the most unusual one I’ve lived through. I’ve thrived this year. It boils down to better use of time. I am fortunate that my day job has gone to teleworking status. As a result, the morning commute is from the bedroom to my makeshift household office. I don’t need to spend a penny on gas or a second on the road. Additionally, now that I’m home, instead of the endless office drama and trivia, I focus more on work. Read more …

Michael Kellogg’s The Russian Roots of Nazism

2,922 words

Michael Kellogg
The Russian Roots of Nazism: White Émigrés and the Making of National Socialism, 1917–1945
Cambridge University Press, 2005

With the near-universal demonization of the Third Reich, historians have developed a blind spot for the genesis of German anti-Semitism. Michael Kellogg, in his 2005 work The Russian Roots of Nazism, sheds a sharp light on this topic and points our attention eastward. Read more …

Fanny & Alexander

3,053 words

Ingmar Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander (1982) is one of his finest works. Fanny and Alexander runs 312 minutes—more than five hours. Bergman cut it down to a 188-minute version for theatrical release. The full version was shown as a miniseries on Swedish television but was also released in theaters, making it one of the longest theatrical films in history. Read more …

The Spanish Empire stands as one of the great landmarks of white civilization. Thousands of men set forth from Iberia to find and conquer a new world, facing all manner of hardships and misery.

The Worst Week Yet:
December 20-26, 2020

The Worst Week Yet: 2020, Year of Fear, by Phil Eiger Newmann

Phil Eiger Newmann, Year of Fear, 2020.

1,580 words

In the early 1970s, English comedian Peter Cook referred to vapid Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor as “the biggest non-event of the century.”

But that was the last century. This century’s biggest non-event, despite what they’ve been ceaselessly drilling into your brain with a trillion tiny digital jackhammers, is the myth of rampaging white racism. Read more …

“You Owe Them Everything!”
A Review of Spencer Quinn’s Charity’s Blade

John Everett Millais’ Joan of Arc, The Maid of Orléans (1865)

3,902 words

I have both the pleasure of informing Counter-Currents readers of an upcoming novel authored by Mr. Spencer Quinn and of reviewing this latest addition to white nationalist-friendly fiction. When critiquing an author (especially for the first time), I like to get a sense of his Weltanschauung by reading and synthesizing some of his other works in conjunction with the monograph in question. Thus, I will also refer throughout to a few of his salient articles. Read more …

A Stranger in Paradise

Ivan Bilbin, Igor’s Campaign, 1941.

1,520 words

It is often said that a new year can be the start of a new life. Along with my own year-end traditions, I have always spent New Year’s Eve reflecting on the past while looking forward to each new year. Due to the events of 2020, it is difficult for many of us to have a positive outlook for the future. After reading The Tale of Igor’s Campaign this week, I was reminded that our ancestors have also faced difficult times and uncertain futures. Read more …

Heidegger’s History of Metaphysics:
Platonism

Plato and Aristotle

Plato and Aristotle, detail from Raphael’s The School of Athens, 1510-1511.

8,701 words

1. Introduction

In my essay “Heidegger Against the Traditionalists,” I sketched a critique of Guénon and Evola from a Heideggerian perspective. Although I raised several objections to Traditionalism, the crucial one was this: Guénon and Evola are thoroughly (and uncritically) invested in the Western metaphysical tradition.  According to Heidegger, however, it is precisely the Western metaphysical tradition that is responsible for all the modern ills decried by the Traditionalists.

The Matching Grant Is in the Bag & A Final Appeal

Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000 this year, and we have been dashing through the snow toward that goal since our last update. We have now received 896 donations totaling $144,991.75, including our recent $5,000 matching grant, which is now “in the bag,” as Santa might say. We are enormously grateful for everyone’s generosity.

Living in Truth:
A Yuletide Homily

471px-Champaigne_Philippe_de_-_Saint_Augustin_-_1645-1650

Philippe de Champaigne, Saint Augustin, 1645-1650

2,637 words

The key problem of our age is disconnection from truth. This takes several distinct forms. The first, and most obvious, is the prevalence of lies. As everyone knows, modern, Western civilization is founded upon lies about human nature, culture, and history. The most significant of these — underlying, in one form of another, most of the rest — is the equality lie; the myth of human equality, which is the chief myth of our age. (“Myth,” as most of my readers know, can have a positive or a negative connotation, as there are salutary myths; here, obviously, I am using the term in its purely negative sense.) Read more …

The Winter Solstice & Christmas Ruminations

1,100 words

The Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, gave me the gift of time to reflect on much that has been on my mind. I hope you’ll use the dark days to do the same, remember old traditions, and find the beauty that still exists. When the nights are long and cold, we as a people have always turned inward to search, and outward to create something beautiful.

Autumn collapses into winter through low-hanging gray clouds and lands in the deep-cold. Read more …

A Counter-Currents Writer Attends a Black Lives Matter Demonstration

Protest sign at a Black Lives Matter demonstration1,518 words

Oh, cruel irony of fate! I attended a Black Lives Matter demonstration just as the nation started to move into the holiday slumber. How did I get to such a point, you ask? I was visiting with family and one of the young ladies in my extended brood — driver’s permit age — had planned a demonstration near the town’s main thoroughfare.

The young lady’s mom and other relations deftly stepped away from any involvement in the affair, Read more …

Some Thoughts on Yule

StonehengeSunset3,427 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside. Read more …

Ethnic Threats & Anglo-American Civilization in Howard & Lovecraft

Both Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) and H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) were masters of the pulp horror story. While the former placed action at the heart of his masculine and violent tales, the latter focused more on psychology and the “cosmic” dread of an indifferent universe. Read more …

Those on the Right who believe that modern art is always “decadent” need to come to grips with Italian Futurism. In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, the founder of Italian Futurism and one of the prophets of Fascism, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this website.

The Counter-Currents Foundation:
How Any American Can Make a Tax-Deductible Donation This Year

Salvador Dalí, Christmas Tree of Butterflies, 1959.

184 words

The Counter-Currents Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt educational corporation that promotes scholarship connected with New Right metapolitics. Donations to the Counter-Currents Foundation can be deducted from US federal income taxes.

Normally, American taxpayers have to itemize their deductions to write off charitable donations when filing their federal income taxes. This means that people who file the 1040EZ form cannot take advantage of deductions for charitable giving. Read more …
