Remembering Alan Watts
(January 6, 1915–November 16, 1973)

159 words

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. In commemoration of his birth, I wish to draw your attention to these works at Counter-Currents: Read more …

The Mormons’ Minority Strategy

Romney as a missionary to France in the 1960s

1,234 words

Anti-whiteness is a fact of life in America. Many whites who want to go to a good college, get a good job, or just be considered a better person will attempt a flight from white. They will try to find some non-white identity they can grasp onto, or pretend a perfectly white ethnicity (such as Italian or Polish) make them non-white. Others will cling to an identity that just makes them a special minority, Read more …

“16 Tons” of Diversity & Racism

Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

1,678 words

“Racism.” “Diversity.” These two words control the way we talk about race in America. That is by design: they are metapolitical words, not words about politics or politicians, rather words that lay down the “no trespassing” moral boundaries of political conversation. The “by design” part of this should be obvious. Read more …

Merwin K. Hart:
Forgotten American Hero & Man of the Right

Merwin K. Hart

1,582 words

I’d like to introduce the reader to an important Rightist of the past — Merwin K. Hart (1881-1962). Hart was a critic of Roosevelt and the New Deal throughout the 1930s and 1940s. He created a metapolitical society that eventually came to be called the National Economic Council, Inc. The National Economic Council aimed to fight the New Deal reforms of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administration and turn back Communism more generally. Read more …

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 …

The Worst Week Yet:
December 27, 2020-January 2, 2021

Phil Eiger Newmann, Victim Hood,

1,544 words

To be young and white in America right now is to walk through life with a black cloud hovering over your head with every word you utter and every step you take.

One major cultural shift over the past generation is that except for a few isolated hills and hollers in Appalachia and the Ozarks, there is effectively no such thing as “poor white culture” anymore. Read more …

Taxi Driver

2,241 words

I am inaugurating a series on Classics of Right-Wing Cinema with Martin Scorsese’s 1976 masterpiece Taxi Driver. For the purposes of this series, what makes a film “Right-wing” is its subject matter, its message, or simply how it resonates with people on the Right, regardless of the filmmaker’s intent. Please feel free to nominate films for this series in the comments below.

It began with Dylann Roof. Read more …

Max Brückner, Valhalla in Flames, 1894.

I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. Although most of these mistakes have merely led to embarrassing moments and memories, I am starting to notice the consequences of my lifestyle choices. To put it bluntly, I have wasted a lot of time pursuing the wrong women, friendships, and careers. 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.

Healing Racial Trauma with Magic Mushrooms

Phil Eiger Newmann, Shroom with a View, 2020.

1,259 words

Imagine repeatedly dosing yourself with the most potent psychedelics known to mankind and still seeing the world entirely in black and white.

Were you aware that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) have used natural psychedelic substances as psychological healing agents for thousands of years, only for the white man to barge in and muck up everything like he always does? Read more …

Top Five (or so) Books I’ve Read in the Year of COVID-19

Johann Wilhelm Preyer, Still Life with Champagne, 1885.

960 words

Well, 2020 is one heck of a year. It’s certainly been the most unusual one I’ve lived through. I’ve thrived this year. It boils down to better use of time. I am fortunate that my day job has gone to teleworking status. As a result, the morning commute is from the bedroom to my makeshift household office. I don’t need to spend a penny on gas or a second on the road. Additionally, now that I’m home, instead of the endless office drama and trivia, I focus more on work. Read more …

Michael Kellogg
The Russian Roots of Nazism: White Émigrés and the Making of National Socialism, 1917–1945
Cambridge University Press, 2005

With the near-universal demonization of the Third Reich, historians have developed a blind spot for the genesis of German anti-Semitism. Michael Kellogg, in his 2005 work The Russian Roots of Nazism, sheds a sharp light on this topic and points our attention eastward. Read more …

Fanny & Alexander

3,053 words

Ingmar Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander (1982) is one of his finest works. Fanny and Alexander runs 312 minutes—more than five hours. Bergman cut it down to a 188-minute version for theatrical release. The full version was shown as a miniseries on Swedish television but was also released in theaters, making it one of the longest theatrical films in history. Read more …

Sepulveda vs. Las Casas:
A Battle Over Race in the Spanish Empire

Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City

1,253 words

The Spanish Empire stands as one of the great landmarks of white civilization. Thousands of men set forth from Iberia to find and conquer a new world, facing all manner of hardships and misery. Unfortunately, the lands the conquistadors settled are, for the most part, racial hellholes. The natives may have lost the battles, Read more …

The Worst Week Yet: 2020, Year of Fear, by Phil Eiger Newmann

Phil Eiger Newmann, Year of Fear, 2020.

1,580 words

In the early 1970s, English comedian Peter Cook referred to vapid Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor as “the biggest non-event of the century.”

But that was the last century. This century’s biggest non-event, despite what they’ve been ceaselessly drilling into your brain with a trillion tiny digital jackhammers, is the myth of rampaging white racism. Read more …

“You Owe Them Everything!”
A Review of Spencer Quinn’s Charity’s Blade

John Everett Millais’ Joan of Arc, The Maid of Orléans (1865)

3,902 words

I have both the pleasure of informing Counter-Currents readers of an upcoming novel authored by Mr. Spencer Quinn and of reviewing this latest addition to white nationalist-friendly fiction. When critiquing an author (especially for the first time), I like to get a sense of his Weltanschauung by reading and synthesizing some of his other works in conjunction with the monograph in question. Thus, I will also refer throughout to a few of his salient articles. Read more …

Ivan Bilbin, Igor’s Campaign, 1941.

1,520 words

It is often said that a new year can be the start of a new life. Along with my own year-end traditions, I have always spent New Year’s Eve reflecting on the past while looking forward to each new year. Due to the events of 2020, it is difficult for many of us to have a positive outlook for the future. After reading The Tale of Igor’s Campaign this week, I was reminded that our ancestors have also faced difficult times and uncertain futures. Read more …

Heidegger’s History of Metaphysics:
Platonism

Plato and Aristotle

Plato and Aristotle, detail from Raphael’s The School of Athens, 1510-1511.

8,701 words

1. Introduction

In my essay “Heidegger Against the Traditionalists,” I sketched a critique of Guénon and Evola from a Heideggerian perspective. Although I raised several objections to Traditionalism, the crucial one was this: Guénon and Evola are thoroughly (and uncritically) invested in the Western metaphysical tradition.  According to Heidegger, however, it is precisely the Western metaphysical tradition that is responsible for all the modern ills decried by the Traditionalists.
