How I Met Lemmy Kilmister: An Interview with Mark Gullick
Mark Gullick is a rarity for Counter-Currents. He is a professional writer and an expert on the English cultural milieu. Mark is mainly interested in current politics, but his interests also include bars, travel, funny stories, philosophy, Tarot, adventure, and professional literature. Let’s get to know him better.

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán set himself a very high rhetorical bar with his speech in Transylvania in July. In one sense it could be seen as a sort of “coming attractions” for his Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) speech in Texas, which he gave less than two weeks later. (more…)
Most classical liberal thinking, which is still ultimately liberal and thus subversive, is based on the idea of the Lockean social contract. But what if the idea of a social contract is a complete farce? Given that classical liberalism underpins much of lukewarm conservatism, if we knock out the idea of social contracts, we also knock out conservatism. (more…)
Death of a Ladies’ Man: The Rise & Fall of Boris Johnson
So the great affair is over but whoever would have guessed
It would leave us all so vacant and so deeply unimpressed.
— Leonard Cohen, “Death of a Ladies’ Man”
Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson could have walked straight out of a novel by Evelyn Waugh. His Englishness is close to caricature. Educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford, Johnson followed a classic rite of passage for the British ruling class. (more…)
The 2004 Spanish general elections, held three days after the Madrid train bombings, only gave the main anti-immigration party 0.1% of the votes. And that was a long-standing record! However, votes are not always a good instrument to measure the support that ideas enjoy among the population, since the System uses several tricks to falsify the popular will. (more…)
Democrats Are the Real Racists (& Why Blacks Don’t Care)
In my near-infinite wisdom on all matters racial, I have noted two major personality flaws of thinking people: They become enamored by the elegance of their ideas to the point of neglecting reality, and they reflexively assume that all people are like them. Such a person might be called a midwit, but I prefer the term “conservative.”
I kid. I kid. One does not have to be a conservative to be a midwit. (more…)
One question I ask myself when considering whether a conspiracy theory is true is how many coincidences the supposed conspiracy eliminates. The more coincidences, the more believable the theory. On the day after the 2020 Presidential Election, even without looking at any evidence, I already understood that an extensive fraud operation (i.e., a conspiracy) had taken place, one that was attempting to shift the tallies in favor of Joe Biden. Why? Too many unlikely coincidences. Count ‘em: (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…)
Mosely, Yockey, Evola, and Pound:
Their marbles lost, but genius found.
Or perhaps it’s just The System’s guise
To sully, defame, and pathologize
All those eccentric in speech and prose
Who point out the emperors’ lack of clothes.
The price is further loss of mind
Assigned asylum (of the psychiatric kind).
Much simpler to be a moderate today
And buffer liberalism on a ten-year delay. (more…)
