“Now I’m not sayin’ we won’t get our hair mussed. But I do say, no more than 10 to 20 million killed, tops. Uh, depending on the breaks.” — General “Buck” Turgidson, USAF, in Dr. Strangelove (more…)
It would be an understatement to say that I completely agree with Robert Wallace’s argument in his article “End Brother Wars in Ukraine.” Finally, a voice of sanity appears from the Dissident Right.
We live in a truly barbaric world; so much so that even many of our brethren seem to have succumbed to the irrational pearl-clutching and beta-cuck emotionalism on the Ukrainian question that one would expect from a soyboy Leftist or a Republican who thinks that Marjorie Taylor Greene is a profound political theorist.

She’s Passionate about Borderline Personality Disorder!
In the Contributor Notes of a recent issue of Philosophy Now magazine, one of the authors, Sailee Khurjekar, is described thusly:
She is passionate about intersectional feminism, and the representation of minorities in public life. She hopes to use her experiences as a female British Indian with Borderline Personality Disorder to advocate for diversity within education.
Ms. Khurjekar’s bio is somewhat grammatically ambiguous. (more…)
De facto secession has already begun in America. Nationalist whites and non-globalist corporations are leaving blue states in droves for redder pastures. Former battleground states, such as Ohio and Iowa, are now reliably MAGA, and most MAGA states are increasingly so. Likewise, the gulags of California and New York more resemble their quondam Soviet counterparts with each passing day. De jure secession will take some time, but if history teaches us anything, it is that political changes occur functionally before they are recognized and ratified legally. (more…)
It is a relatively easy proposition to send a car over the Grand Canyon: Just put the transmission into neutral and a small push will send the car careening over the edge. Once this process has begun, however, it is almost impossible to suspend. (more…)

Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) is best known as the author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities (1961) and as the chief adversary of the soul-destroying activities of Robert Moses, the architect of New York City’s infamous “urban renewal” projects of the mid-twentieth century. (more…)
What’s the definition of mixed emotions? Answer: It’s when your mother-in-law drives your new Cadillac off the side of the Grand Canyon. Normally, I would be upset at yet another Negro killing a white girl and seriously injuring another, but in the case of Dawit Kelete, I’m not so sure. Kelete, an affirmative action DoorDash driver from Eritrea, (more…)
There are times when the best course of action is to do absolutely nothing. This is one of those times. The events of the past three or four months need no recapitulation here. There is a level of madness seen throughout the West today that we have not seen since the French Revolution, a madness that is centered (more…)
The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser Counter-Currents is my University
As an elderly academic, I have predicted for more than 40 years that the American higher education system would eventually destroy itself in a frenzy of suicidal mayhem, intellectual dishonesty, and downright graft. The Coronavirus has accelerated the decline (more…)
I have to admit it. I love the restrictions and hope they continue indefinitely. Social distancing works for me. There is something vulgar about shaking hands and the incessant hugging that seems to be de rigueur these days. Bowing and the Roman salute are much more civilized methods of greeting.
Since the quarantine, society seems to be much more polite and thoughtful. People are more serious, and America has not been a serious country since about 1962. (more…)
