2. Our Fundraiser

Counter-Currents is trying to raise $200,000 this year to sustain and improve our work. Since last week, we have received 24 donations totaling $1,448.09 for a total of 653 donations and a grand total of $83,838.60 since we started our fundraiser on March 10th. That means we are more than 40% of the way to our goal — but of course, the year is more than 50% over as well. We are deeply grateful to everyone who has helped out. Full information on how to donate appears below.

3. “Keeping the Flame Alive”: A Classic Fundraiser Appeal from Robert Hampton

If you want to change the world and fight back against Left-wing repression, the easiest way to do that is to make a contribution to Counter-Currents and the North American New Right. The elites don’t want you to do that. They want identitarians not to have serious institutions. They want us consigned to the margins. But, with your help, that won’t happen.

The Dissident Right loves to talk about institutions. We talk about building our own institutions, conducting a long march through those that already exist, and possibly even destroying them.

We know we need institutions to preserve our message and carry it to the masses. Identitarians often imagine creating fantastical things beyond our current capacity. “A Dissident Right FOX News!” “An identitarian third party!” “A based and red-pilled university!” There’s nothing wrong with dreaming big, but we lack the capacity to achieve these grandiose ideas for now.

The good news is that we already have many strong institutions to support and help grow. You’re reading one right now. Counter-Currents has existed for nearly ten years – an impressive feat for any media venture in the Internet Age. Many online outlets, particularly on the Dissident Right, have come and gone since 2010. The North American New Right is still here, and thriving. That’s an achievement in itself.

Identitarian concepts are better-known than they have ever been in North America. White Nationalism has actually become a 2020 campaign issue. The news networks now regularly discuss white identity politics. Major media outlets cover our ideas and broadcast them to the public. (See the recent profile of Bronze Age Pervert in Politico [5].) White demographic replacement is no longer a fringe topic, but is discussed on primetime television. Anti-white racism is prevalent and can no longer be ignored by normies.

Conservatives are helpless in this new environment. The smart ones crib from us. The dumb and the obstinate close their eyes and hope we can magically return to the George W. Bush years.

We have immense opportunities before us. More Americans than ever are open to our ideas.

But where will they go to find out more? Some normies will stick to the mainstream media and the Southern Poverty Law Center for their intel. But many will seek out the original sources to find out what we really think.

Counter-Currents serves as an invaluable resource for this. When people seek us out, many might think they will stumble upon a poorly-designed Geocities page filled with grammatical errors and crude racial slurs. Instead, they find erudite articles on a wide range of subjects: history, philosophy, esotericism, art, and so on. It’s not the crude caricatures and hastily-scribbled genocide fantasies that the mainstream media portrays us to be. It’s a serious intellectual journal filled with bold ideas and informative analysis.

Many readers came to the Dissident Right because of Donald Trump. But what made them decide to become identitarians were outlets for dissident thought like Counter-Currents. Trump put the ideas for immigration restriction and America First foreign policy into their heads and provided an outline. Then Dissident Rightist publications filled in that outline, offering these curious readers a coherent ideology – something Trump himself could not offer.

Don’t doubt this process. This very writer came to the Dissident Right thanks to places like Counter-Currents. In the aughts, there were no serious Dissident Right publications for an American audience. There were very few places one could find the writings of such thinkers as Alain de Benoist, Guillaume Faye, and other Europeans in English. There were no sites where American writers could express Dissident Rightist views. It was a lonely place for Dissident Right-wingers, who were stuck with a choice between Conservative Inc. rags and crude neo-Nazi forums.

Thankfully, Counter-Currents and other institutions emerged at the dawn of a new decade. This publication offered – and offers – curious readers an alternative to the embarrassments of Conservative Inc. and the discredited extremism of the Old Right. You learn that you aren’t alone in seeing something wrong with the modern world, that the Democratic and Republican parties aren’t the only game in politics, and that there’s a strong Right-wing intellectual tradition outside of Zombie Reaganism. On a daily basis, you can read articles that offer a perspective you cannot find in mainstream publications. This wasn’t something America simply did not have before the Obama years.

Webzines like Counter-Currents laid the groundwork for Trump’s metapolitical moment. The memes shared by shitposters and 4channers were informed by ideas cultivated by the North American New Right. Think about all the big memes: “cuckservative,” “open borders for Israel,” “it’s okay to be white.” These all carried our message to a wider audience, but they were first gestated at places like Counter-Currents.

This is what metapolitics is about: It’s building the ideas that will change people’s minds and change the world. White identity, immigration restriction, and other identitarian ideas are now mainstream thanks to Dissident Right institutions. We are having an effect on the real world and making a difference. Imagine what we could do if our institutions had the resources, funding, and manpower that Conservative Inc. has. Our enemies quiver at that prospect.

That’s why they work so hard to deplatform Counter-Currents and other identitarian institutions. They don’t want you to contribute money, they don’t want you to find this site, and they certainly don’t want you to read our books. Big Tech and journalists know we are a serious threat. They wouldn’t keep trying to deplatform us if they thought we were irrelevant.

But they can’t silence the truth. Political dissidents have survived and triumphed in more trying times than our current situation. We aren’t in FEMA camps (yet), and we will continue to overcome the hurdles they throw before us.

We will only grow stronger. Our institutions will withstand Big Tech censorship and the mainstream media’s attacks. The truth cannot be silenced. And, one day, we will win.

Victory won’t happen overnight. We need reliable institutions to carry on this long battle until our people and civilization are saved. Every Counter-Currents reader can do his or her part with a contribution. We’re in this fight together, and every bit of help counts.

There’s no better way to declare “You Will Not Replace Us” than to see our own institutions triumph in the face of adversity. Please contribute what you can to keep the flame of future victory alive.

4. Our Latest Incentive to Give: Our Paywall

Counter-Currents extends special privileges to those who donate $120 or more per year.

First, donor comments will appear immediately instead of waiting in a moderation queue. (People who abuse this privilege will lose it.)

Second, donors will have immediate access to all Counter-Currents posts. Non-donors will find that one post a day, five posts a week will be behind a “paywall” and will be available to the general public after 30 days.

Naturally, we do not grant permission to other websites to repost paywall content before 30 days have passed.

What will go behind the paywall? The short answer is: stuff you really want to see, including:

We generally won’t put things behind the paywall that deal with current events. Instead, we will focus on evergreen material that won’t seem irrelevant after 30 days.

How do you access these privileges?

To subscribe to the paywall, we need three things from you:

To register, just fill out this form and we will walk you through the payment process. There are a number of different payment options.

If you are in the United States, the easiest way to pay for your paywall subscription is by e-check. It is as secure, fast, and convenient as a credit card. All you need is your checkbook:

GreenPay™ by Green Payment

Subscription Level

Note: To register, you need to do more than just send an echeck payment. You need to fill out the form as well, or we won’t know what to do with the echeck payment.

5. How to Send Money to Counter-Currents

Counter-Currents, like all advocates of dissident ideas, depends upon the generosity of readers like you to survive and thrive. If you are a past donor, welcome back. If you are contemplating making your first donation, do it in thanks to the past donors that made it possible for you to find Counter-Currents, and pay it forward so others can experience the same delight in discovery.

There are several ways to help out.

(1) E-Checks

If you are in the United States, E-checks are the fastest and most convenient way to send money to Counter-Currents. All you need is your checkbook.

(2) Credit Cards

Currently the only way we can take credit card donations is through Entropy, a site that takes donations and comments for livestreams. Visit our Entropy page [4] and select “send paid chat.” Entropy allows you to donate any amount from $3 and up. All comments will be read and discussed in the next episode of Counter-Currents Radio, which airs every weekend.

(3) Bank Transfers

It is also possible to support Counter-Currents with bank transfers. Please contact us at [email protected] [7].

(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. Simply buy a prepaid credit card and click here [8] to use it. If you can find a place that sells gift cards for cash, they are as anonymous as sending cash and much safer.

(5) Cash, Checks and Money Orders

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 [9] or PDF [10] 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.

(6) 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.

(7) Crypto-Currencies

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

(8) 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 me at [email protected] [13]. You can send donations by mail to:

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

(9) 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 [14]” contains many helpful suggestions.

Remember: those who fight for a better world live in it today.

Thank you again for your loyal readership and generous support.
