It is Friday, November 11th, 2022, and if America is the greatest nation in the world, why do we still not know the final results of Tuesday’s midterm elections? (more…)

Fighting the Last War: Confusion, Partisanship, and Alarmism in the Literature on the Radical Right
Lanham, Maryland: Lexington Books, 2022
Professors Jeffrey M. Bale and Tamir Bar-On have taken a look at the response to the increasingly vocal political Right in the Western world. What they found is that the establishment has used the specter of fascism as a shadow to box against since 1945. Politics is the application of the friend/enemy distinction, so shadowboxing against a phantom enemy is a good way to go about domestic politics without stumbling into a civil war. (more…)

The Great Betrayal: The Memoirs of Ian Douglas Smith
London: Blake, 1997
After the end of the Second World War, it was only a matter of time for white-run countries in the Third World, especially in Africa. South Africa held out the longest before capitulating to the anti-white Left and allowing black rule in the early 1990s. (more…)
Civic Nationalism’s Last Gasp: F. H. Buckley’s American Secession
F. H. Buckley just doesn’t get it. He has good instincts and intentions. He’s sniffing around in all the right places. He uses his training in statistics and social science to good effect. (And he’s warm, I’ll give him that.) With all his effort, he could probably discern the exact dimensions of the 500-pound-gorilla-shaped space that’s somehow being occupied in the middle of the room.
But to actually call it a 500-pound gorilla? Never. (more…)
One of the words that has recently seen a lot of use, but I fear is insufficiently analyzed, is “deradicalization.” On its face, it’s self-evident: It refers to the process of abandoning radical beliefs for more moderate ones and adjusting one’s political direction and activism accordingly.
When we say something is a deradicalization op, we mean that this is an operation by any group of enemies aimed at effecting deradicalization of radical white identitarians and Right-wingers, particularly on the Internet. This only scratches the surface of deradicalization as a social and political phenomenon, however. (more…)
It seems that every ten years a “New Right” emerges in America. The National Review was seen as the “New Right” in the 1950s. There was a “New Right” in the 1980s with Ronald Reagan’s ascent. There have been many New Rights in Europe as well. (more…)
Author’s Note: On last Saturday’s Counter-Currents Radio livestream, a listener named Natalie sent in the question, “What are your thoughts on the Coach ‘Dead-Shill’ saga?” Hyacinth Bouquet transcribed my answer, and I have cleaned it up some. I want to thank Natalie for her question and Hyacinth for her transcription. (more…)
Trois piliers de la politique identitaire blanche, Partie 2 : Culture
English original here
Il est facile de comprendre pourquoi la seule parenté n’est pas un fondement suffisant pour une société harmonieuse. Les études sur des vrais jumeaux élevés dans des environnements différents donnent des preuves remarquables sur la manière dont le déterminisme génétique agit en profondeur. (more…)

The End of America: 100 Days that Shook the World
Washington, DC: The Calamo Press, 2021
J. J. Sefton’s recent book, The End of America, while not exactly a dissident volume, retains much value for the Dissident Right for several reasons. Best known as the author of The Morning Report, a column appearing on the Ace of Spaces HQ blog, Sefton amasses dozens of news stories every weekday for Ace’s right-of-center “Moron Horde,” while offering key quotes and cracking wise before the links.

Conservatives often lampoon the most egregious examples of Leftist social constructivism, yet they are not immune to indulging in blank-slatist fantasies when it suits them. The conservative civic nationalist project of subsuming disparate racial groups under one flag is a form of social engineering premised on blank slate ideology. (more…)
Let’s talk about nationalism.
You’ve probably been told that there are two kinds of nationalism: ethnic and civic. This is true. You’ve probably been told that nationalism is a Left-wing phenomenon. This is partially true. (more…)
