Richard Hanania’s The Origins of Woke is Christopher Caldwell’s excellent book, The Age of Entitlement, but in a less sober and more opinionated tone, and with more speculation on what’s to be done about the predicament. While both books get the point across, Hanania’s trying to get several other points across that distract from the central thesis: Our legal system contains a civil rights ratcheting mechanism that requires all corporations and organizations to promote a “Leftist” (anti-Christian, anti-white, anti-male, anti-straight) political agenda.

Harry Richardson & Frank Salter’s Anglophobia: The Unrecognised Hatred
Harry Richardson & Frank Salter
Anglophobia: The Unrecognised Hatred
Social Technologies, 2023
White advocacy in literature can take many forms, both implicit and explicit. With Anglophobia: The Unrecognised Hatred, authors Harry Richardson and Frank Salter choose the explicit — as the book’s title would suggest. Unlike other works in the dissident Right canon, however, this excellent volume catalogues and itemizes anti-white hatred into a consistent, durable, and easily-understood notion. (more…)
Author’s Note: I’m going to put the word “accelerationism” in quotes as to not give the idea more credibility than it deserves.
Probably the most annoying argument I frequently hear from the online Right is that what we need is “accelerationism.” (more…)
Aside from forecasting the future in terms of how college admissions will work, the recent Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action — Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College, which can be read here — provides us an opportunity to analyze the current state of United States law and to pierce the undeserved mystique surrounding the legal profession. Your reading of this essay alone will demonstrate in itself that lawyering is not alchemy. (more…)
To understand the term “institutional racism” as a political device, one needs to distinguish its natural from its anti-racist meaning. For most people it denotes pervasive racial discrimination in an institution, but in its anti-racist meaning it denotes the opposite: namely, an institution’s practice of treating all the same without regard to race. How can this be? (more…)
The 2022 Sight & Sound Poll of the Greatest Films of All Time
The results of the Sight and Sound poll of the Greatest Films of All Time were announced earlier this month. The prestigious, once-a-decade poll, which has been conducted since 1952, is widely regarded as an arbiter of the canon of cinema. This year’s results bear the unmistakable influence of film-school fads and rabid identity politics.
This year’s list is noticeably more diverse than the previous one. The number of films made by black directors that appear on it increased from one to seven, and the number of films made by women increased from two to eleven. (more…)

New York: Crown Forum, 2017
It’s déjà vu all over again, folks. The more things change, the more they stay the same. This is one of the takeaways from this fascinating political memoir by Pat Buchanan, who worked in the Nixon White House as a strategist and speechwriter after serving Candidate Nixon on the campaign trail.

Like a Duck in a Noose: Lessons for White Advocates from the 2002 DC Sniper Attacks
After returning home from a Christmas party in 2021, I turned the dome light on in my car as I prepared to get out. Up to that point, I’d always kept it off, entering and leaving my automobile at night in complete blackout. I had adopted this tactical lifestyle starting in October 2002, when the area around Washington, DC was being terrorized by the sniper team of John Allen Muhammad and John Lee Malvo. (more…)
Breaking News: Putin is Evil
In the past few weeks I’ve gone on record stating that I don’t see the current Ukraine/Russia conflict being good for Americans in any conceivable way.
This was before I learned that Vladimir Putin is evil. Now that I know this, I agree that he must be stopped by any means necessary, even if it means genociding the entire human race. (more…)
After Stephen Breyer announced he was retiring from the Supreme Court in January of 2022, Biden fulfilled his 2020 campaign promise to nominate a black female for the position. While every rational person sees the problem with electing someone based on his skin color and/or gender, the nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, should also feel somewhat disrespected for being chosen predicated on a campaign commitment to elect a black woman (not a particular black woman, just a black woman) instead of her professional and personal merit.
