Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Resources at Counter-Currents

192 words

I treat MLK Day like every other Monday: I take the trash to the curb and let it rot there until Tuesday. It is a fitting symbol of the “content of his character,” for King was a vicious fraud and operator who, in death, was turned into the whitewashed saint of America’s egalitarian civil religion.

Over the years, Counter-Currents has published or republished a number of important articles grappling with the lies and cant surrounding King’s life and legacy. Read more …

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

2020 was the most challenging and exciting year so far in the history of Counter-Currents. In March, we lost our credit card processor for the nth time, which severely hurt our ability to sell books and receive donations; on the other hand, March was our best month ever in terms of traffic, with 336,062 unique visitors.

The Golden Path:
Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune & God Emperor of Dune

Frank Herbert

4,241 words

Frank Herbert’s Dune (1965) is one of the masterpieces of science fiction, far eclipsing its five sequels in readership and reputation. But I wish to argue that the third and fourth Dune books, Children of Dune (1976) and God Emperor of Dune (1981), are equally audacious works of the imagination. [1] Both volumes tend to be underrated, partly due to the long shadow of Dune, partly because the sheer scope of Herbert’s vision boggles the mind, Read more …

Alan Watts was born on this day in 1915. A prolific scholar and dazzling stylist, Watts is best known as the chief popularizer of Asian philosophy for the Beat and Hippy movements, but he was also an original thinker in his own right and a quiet man of the Right.

The Counter-Currents Newsletter, December 2020

1,347 words

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

2020 was a terrible year for all of us. But when economic uncertainty, multicultural instability, and political polarization rise, so does traffic to dissident websites. Thus 2020 was Counter-Currents‘ best year ever in terms of readers. Beyond that, it was our best year ever in terms of fundraising — despite a global recession and being blacklisted for almost ten months by the credit card industry. Read more …

Remembering J. R. R. Tolkien:
January 3, 1892–September 2, 1973

500 words

“I am in fact a Hobbit.”—J. R. R. Tolkien

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is a favorite author of New Left “hippies” and New Right nationalists, and for pretty much the same reasons. Tolkien deeply distrusted modernization and industrialization, which replace organic reciprocity between man and nature with technological dominion of man over nature, a relationship that deforms and devalues both poles.

The Matching Grant Is in the Bag & A Final Appeal

872 words

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.

This means that Counter-Currents has already surpassed last year’s fundraiser by $20,000, Read more …

Filippo Marinetti in the First World War.

Marinetti in the First World War.

176 words

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 …

The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
The Plymouth 400 Symposium, Weekend Livestreams, & Our $5,000 All-Or-Nothing Matching Grant

The monumental canopy that housed Plymouth Rock from 1867 until 1920.

1,200 words

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. Read more …

If you are ready for white identity politics but not ready for the ethnostate, that means that you are committed to a form of multiculturalism that works for your people, the founding stock of your nation: Hungarians in Hungary, Frenchmen in France, Swedes in Sweden, white Americans in America, etc. But how do we get there from here?
