My Case for Trump

2,194 words

As we approach the 2020 elections, it seems that Dissident Right attitudes regarding President Trump range from tepid tolerance to jaded discontent. Disappointment and frustration dominate our Trump discussions, and many of us, while still technically supporting the man, plan to hold our noses quite firmly Read more …

Eran blancos y eran esclavos de Michael Hoffman

3.818 palabras

Traducido por Tradición Viva

English original here

Más o menos cada pocos años aparece un libro que destroza tus cimientos y te hace volver a cuestionar casi todo. Para mí, Culture of Critique de Kevin MacDonald y Gulag Archipelago de Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn son dos de esos libros. Ellos eran blancos y eran esclavos de Michael A. Hoffman es otro. Read more …

Michael Hoffman’s They Were White & They Were Slaves

3,665 words

Spanish translation here

Michael Hoffman
They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold History of the Enslavement of Whites in Early America
Dresden, New York: Wiswell Ruffin House

Every few years or so a book comes around that rips your foundations from under you and makes you re-question pretty much everything. For me, Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago are two such books. Michael A. Hoffman’s They Were White and They Were Slaves is another. Read more …

Jake Gardner & the Dissident’s Dilemma

White Americans: If the recent Jake Gardner affair has taught us anything, it’s that our elite that now occupies most of the government and nearly all of the mainstream media has rigged the system against us. Read more …

This is Why We Had Segregation

1,901 words

With so much unrest happening in so many places these days, it’s hard to make sense of it all. America is fracturing, that much we can see. But as with an earthquake, all the tidal waves and crumbling structures don’t give us a view of the tectonic plates rumbling deep beneath the surface. But if we could see those tectonic plates, Read more …

Benjamin Ginsburg
How the Jews Defeated Hitler: Exploding the Myth of Jewish Passivity in the Face of Nazism
Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Littlefield, 2013

Benjamin Ginsburg has his uses for the Dissident Right. As a Jewish author who sometimes airs dirty Jewish laundry for his readers, he can be placed in the same category as David Cole — Jews who offer critical assessments of their own people that justify the claims of anti-Semites, Read more …

Will the Real Jessica Krug Please Sit Down?

1,971 words

Recently, Jessica Krug, a Jewish Left-wing activist and professor at George Washington University, revealed that she had been assuming black and Latino identities for a good deal of her adult life. Krug’s confession, entitled “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies,” is about as angst-ridden and precious as a breakup poem penned by a fourteen-year-old girl. She has admitted to the world that, although she still supports Black Power, Cancel Culture, Read more …

Stolypin vs. Bogrov:
Themes of Ethnonationalism in Solzhenitsyn’s August 1914

4,457 words

The white man stood tall and proud. He was handsome and confident, and was well-dressed in his white summer-weight frock coat. Regal, although not quite the Tsar. As Prime Minister, he was the next best thing. Despite this, Pyotr Stolypin had remarkable little security around him when he attended a play at the Kyiv Opera House on September 14th, 1911. His relationship with the Tsar had soured a bit recently due to his insistence that the local governments of the western provinces (called zemstvos) be dominated by the Russian people and not the influential Polish landowners.

In Defense of Kyle Rittenhouse

1,582 words

More shots have been fired in the trial run of the second American Civil War.

On August 25th, Kyle Rittenhouse, a seventeen-year-old citizen-militia member, was attacked at least twice by a Black Lives Matter and Antifa mob during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was armed with a rifle, and with it killed two of his attackers and injured a third. Read more …

Mandatory Altruism.

If there’s a central defining feature of education and upbringing in the West among whites, Mandatory Altruism seizes that distinction. It’s the idea that a person’s moral worth depends upon how much he (or, more importantly, she) pines for the welfare of people unlike her. Read more …

Trump Should Wargame Secession, Too

2,474 words

Earlier this month, the New York Times revealed that top-level Democrats have been wargaming possible outcomes of the November 2020 election and are considering secession if things don’t go their way. This should come as a surprise to no one. Since the epoch-changing George Floyd riots — which began in May and are still ongoing Read more …

The Prison Plays of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

5,026 words

Known mostly as a novelist, memoirist, and historian, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn had actually completed four plays before his first novel, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, was published in 1962. He composed his first two, Victory Celebrations and Prisoners, while a zek in the Soviet Gulag Read more …

Knut Hamsun’s Hunger

1,058 words

Oh, what strange freaks one’s thoughts are guilty of when one is starving.

— Knut Hamsun, Hunger

Back in my misspent youth, I took a seminar on creative writing. One of the instructors gave the class a piece of advice which I never heeded. She said that if you want to be good enough at writing to make a living at it, don’t be good at anything else. Read more …

Not So Funny Anymore: Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities

2,418 words

Tom Wolfe
The Bonfire of the Vanities
New York: Bantam, 1987

When the Left finally gets around to banning (or burning) classic novels, Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities will likely be on the top of the list. Unlike Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Bonfire’s great sin is not merely being linguistically taboo but substantively taboo as well. Read more …

We Need a White Underground Railroad

1,504 words

On July 1st, 2020, what should have been a minor dust-up in a suburb of Detroit has become international news. As a result, it’s becoming clear that more and more whites are having their lives trampled upon by the self-destructive madness that’s been engulfing America in the After-Floyd Era. Read more …

1,683 words

It feels like a slap in the face when you think you are living in interesting times, but then you realize, no. No, you were not. Those times, or really, our memories of those times which slowly evaporate even as they cling more tightly to the fear centers and emotion hubs of our minds, were not terribly interesting at all, were they?

March 1917 in June 2020

3,515 words

A recurring theme in Book 1 of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s March 1917 — or Node III of his vast Red Wheel opus — is “this could have been prevented.” Of course, this refers to the first successful socialist revolution in Russia, which took place in March 1917 (or in February, according to the Julian Calendar). In March 1917, Solzhenitsyn offers a wealth of perspective on the fateful events in Petrograd which led to the abdication of the Tsar and the monarchy’s ultimate replacement with the Provisional Government.

Black Lives Matter is Black Supremacy

1,613 words

If there is one universal truth about humanity, it’s that we are, by nature, tribalistic. We identify with our tribe, whatever that tribe may be. In a monoracial society, tribalist loyalties can form around clans, nations, religions, classes, or even actual tribes, as is the case in many places in Africa. In multiracial societies, however, everything boils down to race. Read more …

I don’t like black people. Let’s get that out of the way right now. Yes, in my life there have been perhaps three black individuals that I was truly fond of (one of whom I still am). But as a group, I recognize that black Africans represent a particularly violent threat to Western civilization, a civilization I love dearly. Read more …

Constantinople (Not Istanbul)

2,052 words

One fascinating conundrum I have been dealing with for years juxtaposes Istanbul/Constantinople the city with “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” the song. I cannot plumb the depths of this since, on one hand, the fall of Constantinople on May 29th, 1453 (today is the 567th anniversary) was a sheer catastrophe for the West — be it for Christendom or for the white race, however you want to look at it.

The first question posed to Greg Johnson and Fróði Midjord during the recent Counter-Currents livestream was, “If you could re-live your twenties, what would you do differently?” Greg’s answer was direct, clear, and quite pertinent to those of us considering an academic career — in the humanities, at least. Short answer: Don’t. Good advice. Read more …

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Lenin in Zürich

2,691 words

In 1975, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn excised the several Lenin chapters from his massive and unfinished Red Wheel epic and compiled them into one volume entitled Lenin in Zürich. At the time, only one of these chapters had been published — in Knot I of the Red Wheel, known as August 1914 — while the remaining chapters would still have to languish in the author’s desk drawer for decades before appearing as part of The Red Wheel proper (November 1916 and March 1917, specifically).

S. C. Gwynne’s Empire of the Summer Moon

3,288 words

S.C. Gwynne’s magnificent Empire of the Summer Moon hits as hard as literature can hit and offers history as a form of sublime entertainment. I believe the author wouldn’t take all the credit for his book’s success, since the subject matter — which is, as the subtitle tells us, the rise and fall of the nineteenth-century Comanche nation — is so fascinating, so packed with action, so rife with contradictions, so laden with heart-wrenching drama, and so existential in its meaning, the story pretty much writes itself.
