Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000 this year, and we have made great strides toward that goal since our last update. We have now received 851 donations totaling $135,673.14 for which we are enormously grateful. We are thus $14,326.86 from our goal, which means that, to make our goal, we have to raise more than $1,000/day before our deadline, and two of those days are very hard to compete with, namely Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Fortunately, one of our generous supporters has offered us a new $5,000 matching grant. This grant is an all-or-nothing affair: we have to raise the full $5,000 to receive the match. Beyond that, there is a deadline: Christmas Day. Since most of our donations now come in the mail, we will count all donations postmarked between December 11th, and December 24th toward the goal. We will also count all other donations, whether via Entropy, bank transfer, or cryptocurrency received between now and Christmas. A full list of ways to help appears below.

The Plymouth 400 Symposium

Today is the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower‘s landing at Plymouth, which led to the foundation of New England and greater Yankeedom, which gained hegemony over the entire United States after the Civil War. This year’s commemorations are a pale shadow of the Tercentennary of the Pilgrims’ landing, which reflects the loss of “WASP” hegemony to a hostile elite associated more with Ellis Island than Plymouth.

I wish to take this occasion to reflect on the immense accomplishments of the New England strand of our heritage. I also wish to declare a general amnesty for all their crimes and mistakes. Culturally and sometimes genetically, they live on in us all, and they made this continent and the world at large a better place.

To that end, I asked Counter-Currents‘ writers to share their thoughts, which will serve as the first of many commemorations to come.

In the coming year, we will also begin annual commemorations of the Jamestown founding on May 14, 1607, and other significant events in the peopling of North America.

This Weekend’s Livestreams

I will be doing two livestreams this weekend:

My guest in the first hour will be Laura Towler. In the second hour, it will be The Great Order.

The topic of the stream will be how we celebrate the Solstice/Christmas/Yule as well as Your Questions.

A New Way for Americans to Do Tax-Deductible Donations

There are several ways you can donate to Counter-Currents.

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.

Just go to our Entropy page [10] and select “Leave 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. Just click the button that says Leave Paid Chat.)

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 at noon PST/3:00 PM EST on DLive: https://dlive.tv/Counter-Currents [9]

Money Transfers

If your bank does free money transfers to other banks in the US, please contact [email protected] [12].

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

[13]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 [14] or PDF [15] 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] [11]. 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 [18]” contains many helpful suggestions.

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

Thank you for all you do to make Counter-Currents possible.
