Charles Darwin’s main thesis in The Descent of Man is that mankind shares traits with animals and must have evolved from them via natural selection. Part of natural selection is sexual selection, which is competition within the species to impress mates. Darwin seeks to influence sexual selection in humans, imploring them to choose each other for their virtues rather than wealth or rank. (more…)

If you are as adept as I am at picking Jews out of a police lineup, you would realize upon first glance that South African-born TV reporter and war correspondent Lara Logan is not Jewish. Like Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, another South African-born blonde butterfly, Logan has the sort of icily superhuman Nordic beauty that leads one to suspect she was designed in a biolab by some lascivious descendant of Hugo Boss. She’s so decisively non-Jewish, bagels immediately go stale in her presence. (more…)
There is a time for us to wander.
When time is young and so are we.
The woods are greener over yonder.
The path is new, the world is free.
There is a time when leaves are fallin’.
The woods are gray, the paths are old.
The snow will come when geese are callin.’
You need a fire against the cold.

Since humor is one of the New Right’s most powerful weapons, we should welcome anything that might sharpen our attack, including a theoretical explanation of the nature of humor itself. Anthony M. Ludovici’s 1932 book The Secret of Laughter presents an entirely convincing theory of humor inspired by Thomas Hobbes and Charles Darwin. (more…)
The Evolutionary Psychologist’s Guide to Picking Up Girls

Mate: Become the Man Women Want
New York: Little, Brown and Company, 2015
Time was when a young man did not need to master evolutionary psychology in order to find himself a girl. The adult world provided the young with ready-made social rituals for meeting, assessing one another’s prospects as a mate, and (eventually) entering into a lifelong covenant to bear and raise a new generation.

Religion for Infidels, Part 3
Intelligence, Power, & Problem Solving in Nature
(f) The sixth conclusion to which a steady and careful study of Nature inevitably leads us is that wherever there is living matter, whether in the human brain or in a blade of grass, there also shall we find intelligence. Every particle of live matter is, we know, composed of cells which, individually and by the simple fact that they are alive, give evidence of intelligent activity. (more…)

The life of Jack London, the extraordinarily popular turn-of-the-century American author, was every bit as fascinating as those of the fictional characters depicted in his stories. He was a man of action as well as of thought. (more…)

Darwin’s Other Idea:
Geoffrey Miller’s The Mating Mind
The Mating Mind: How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature
New York: Random House, 2000
Darwinian evolution is seen as a cold, ruthless struggle for survival that shaped what we eventually became. But, the critic responds, whence kindness, humor, language, playfulness, art and creativity? Scientists have tried to explain altruism towards relatives as kin selection and other forms of morality as based on reciprocity, but we all often help people who are not related to us when there’s nothing to be gained.

Ragnar Redbeard’s Might Is Right or the Survival of the Fittest
From The Occidental Observer, September 29, 2009
Note: In biology, “adaptive” means (very precisely) promoting the survival and reproduction of an organism’s genes. “Natural selection” is the logical and empirical process whereby forces of nature affect the survival and reproduction of some genes over others. The terms, “natural selection” and “selection pressures” (particular causes of selection) help one think clearly.
