Jim Cobb’s Prepper’s Financial Guide

3,300 words

Jim Cobb
Prepper’s Financial Guide
Berkeley: Ulysses Press, 2015

Disaster preparation is a difficult topic. There are some entry-level items, such as what outdoor survival supplies should go into a “bug-out bag” which might be needed in short notice for a long hike in very uncertain conditions. However, beyond the “101” level stuff, things get complicated pretty quickly. Read more …

Pierre-Jean Boquet, The Burning of Cap Français, 1791.

7,803 words

The monumental significance of the fall of Saint-Domingue, the crown jewel of the French colonial empire, and its ensuant descent into the African savagery of Haiti cannot be overstated. The terrible birth of Haiti as a mangled, stillborn phoenix from a river of white blood Read more …

First, They Came For Teenage French Pop Singers

France Gall

2,278 words

There once existed a time, alien to my young brain, in which people primarily discovered and listened to pop music on radio stations. These were entities subject to important forces, like censorship and record label interests, that gave rise to various standardizations and trade practices that persist to this day. During the age of the radio, the forces of globalization Read more …

Columbus Day Special
Life Styles: Native & Imposed

2,919 words

For decades now, African American leaders have been calling for a formal United States apology for the American role in the slave trade, with some even demanding reparations. Indian tribes proclaim their tax-exempt status as something they are owed for a legacy of persecution by the United States. Mexican Americans in the southwest United States seek to incorporate this region, including California, into Mexico, or even to set up an independent nation, Aztlan, that will recreate the glories of the Aztec empire, destroyed centuries ago by the imperialistic Spaniards.  Read more …

A Helping Hand

Lucas van Valckenborch, View of Antwerp with the frozen Scheldt, 1590.

1,761 words

As I have gotten older, I find myself thinking about the fleeting nature of time. I often ask myself whether I have wasted too much time playing video games, reading fantasy books, or attending heavy metal concerts. Yet without these hobbies, I would have never visited Antwerp Read more …

Remembering Aleister Crowley
(October 12, 1875–December 1, 1947)

Aleister Crowley by Charles Krafft

424 words

Aleister Crowley was an English poet, novelist, painter, and mountaineer who is most famous as an occultist, ceremonial magician, and founder of the religion and philosophy of Thelema. But ironically Crowley’s supposed Satanism and Black Magic are far less frightening to most people than his politics. For Aleister Crowley was also a man of the Right.

Eisenhower: American Simpleton

2,004 words

Stephen E. Ambrose
Eisenhower: Soldier and President
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1990

Dwight D. Eisenhower is an all-American figure both Democrats and Republicans revere..

As a president, his term was marked by unprecedented prosperity and stability in America, and he kept us from World War III. Read more …

Hendrik de Man, The Right, & Ethical Socialism

5,462 words

“Socialism” is intrinsic to the “Right.” When journalists and academics refer in one breath to “liberalism, neoliberalism, and the Right-wing,” that attests to their ignorance, not to the accuracy of any such bastardization. Even at its most basic level of understanding, it seems to have been forgotten that in Britain there were Tories and Whigs in opposition. Now, Toryism has become so detached from its origins Read more …

Might As Well Nudge

1, 282 words

Everyone is familiar with psychological warfare, in which information is used to break down the morale of an enemy in wartime. It can also be used on individuals within a community in order to get them to act in a specific way. There’s also propaganda, which is an information campaign used by government to change public opinion Read more …

Franciso Goya, The Disasters of War, Plate 39: Grande hazaña! Con muertos! (A heroic feat! With dead men!).

3,057 words

On October 1st, with little fanfare, Politico published an extraordinary opinion piece that may be the most important thing I’ve read all year. Titled “Americans Increasingly Believe Violence is Justified if the Other Side Wins,” the essay was penned by three “senior fellows” at the Hoover Institution, New America, and the Hudson Institute, Read more …

Three Pillars of White Identity Politics:
Part 2: Culture

1,797 words

Part 2 of 3; part 1 here

It is easy to understand why kinship alone is not a sufficient foundation for a harmonious society. Studies of identical twins raised in different environments give remarkable evidence of how fine-grained genetic determinism really is.

But imagine identical twins raised in really different environments: one in Yemen, the other in New York City. Read more …

Emmanuel Todd’s Lineages of Modernity

6,392 words

The idea that the norms implanted upon us by our families affect our personalities and our prospects in life is almost a truism. The idea that there is a strong relationship between the Western nuclear family and liberal modernity is no longer controversial, and so is the idea that different family types have existed across the world and that these types have played a significant role in the historical trajectories of the cultures of the world. Some are aware of the so-called “Hajnal line” proposed in 1965 by John Hajnal, Read more …

“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”

Philippe-Joseph Salazar
Suprémacistes: L’enquête Mondiale chez les Gourous de la Droite Identitaire
Paris: Plon, 2020

This book results from interviews with leading thinkers of the race-conscious right — the so-called alternative right — which seeks to bring race to the forefront of political debate. The title Suprémacistes is, however, misleading; for the author, Philippe-Joseph Salazar, nowhere describes the people who are the subject of this study as supremacists Read more …

American Gods & Their Shadows

Winslow Homer, The Woodcutter, 1891.

Kid A belongs on an end-times list of anti-modern records. How is that possible?

Does it make sense to call a record like this one Read more …

Remembering Roy Campbell
(October 2, 1901–April 22, 1957)

Roy Campbell

1,562 words

Roy Campbell was a South African poet and essayist. T. S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, and Edith Sitwell praised Campbell as one of the best poets of the inter-war period. Unfortunately, his conservatism, Nietzscheanism, and Catholicism, as well as his open contempt for the Bloomsbury set and his participation in the Spanish Civil War on the Fascist side, have led his works being consigned to the memory hole.
