Michael Hoffman’s They Were White & They Were Slaves

3,665 words

Spanish translation here

Michael Hoffman
They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold History of the Enslavement of Whites in Early America
Dresden, New York: Wiswell Ruffin House

Every few years or so a book comes around that rips your foundations from under you and makes you re-question pretty much everything. For me, Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago are two such books. Michael A. Hoffman’s They Were White and They Were Slaves is another. Read more …

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 …

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 …

On Reparations

1,940 words

What are we to make of reparations for slavery to American blacks? It’s become a frequently repeated demand lately, and might be even more so later on. The strange thing is that that the further away in time we get from slavery, which ended well before living memory, the pricklier the topic becomes. Likewise, demands for reparations Read more …

Chief Pontiac’s Revenge:
The Story of Detroit’s Deindustrialization

2,804 words

There is no city quite like Detroit, Michigan that exemplifies American deindustrialization. If one flies into the city’s airport at night, one looks down on a dark void, occasionally lit by streetlamps shining their light upon a ruin. By day, things look no better. Vast stretches of the city have become urban prairie. The story of Detroit Read more …

Who is Responsible for the Murder of Cannon Hinnant?

2,155 words

It happened on August 9th, a date that carries a lot of bad juju. It happened in Wilson County, North Carolina, which has a population of about seventy-five thousand. 55.83% white, 39.33% black. Median income $33,000. Of households with children, less than half are married couples. 16.5% have a female householder with no husband present; 30.9% are “non-families” (presumably, non-married couples). Opioid overdose fatalities have tripled in Wilson since 2012. In short, it is a poor county with all the attendant social problems that now plague rural America. Read more …

Emmanuel Todd
Lineages of Modernity: A History of Humanity from the Stone Age to Homo Americanus
Cambridge, England, and Medford, MA: Polity Press, 2019

Much of today’s dominant globalist ideology derives from development theory, a body of thought which shares with Marxism the view that economic relations are the basis of social life and sees the races of mankind as fundamentally equivalent beneath the superficial cultural differences which have arisen over history.

It’s Time to Wage “War” on Protein Wisdom

2,135 words

Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom hates identity politics. He would like to wage war against it; stamp it out, as it were. The problem, however, is that the weapons he would like to use in this war only point in one direction: against whites. He pretends otherwise, but he’s easy enough to see through.

Populism & Neo-Thatcherism:
Why Economics is Crucial for the Dissident Right

Jair Bolsonaro

2,003 words

Populism is an oft-discussed topic in political circles of all stripes, and us dissidents tend to look at it as the best chance at present to put any sort of identitarian ideas into the mainstream, or at the very least as the best chance of stopping mass migration. I wrote a report on the state of populism in Europe not long ago for that very reason.

As I said in that article, there is no “fixed” populist platform; merely a handful of ideas that unite parties under the populist label. These are mainly anti-elitism, anti-immigration, and an appeal in some form to disprivileged native populations. Quite often, it is also simply a matter of the media deciding to call someone or some party populist.

The National Dividend

C. H. Douglas, founder of Social Credit

1,949 words

When, during World War I, C. H. Douglas was sent to sort out the accounting muddle in an aircraft factory in Farnborough, England he noticed that the factory was generating costs faster than it was distributing incomes. Replicating the process at a hundred other large British firms he found that the total costs were always more than the money distributed in dividends, wages, and salaries.[1]

Douglas became concerned that the men who labored in the factories producing the necessities of life could not always afford to purchase the items they had worked to produce, Read more …

Power & Infantilism

Sombart

Werner Sombart

1,385 words

Translated by G. A. Malvicini

Werner Sombart is an author who deserves to be studied more than he currently is. Sombart furnishes an example of a serious method for studying socio-economic phenomena, one that is far removed from the deformations and biases of materialist sociology (especially of the Marxist type). For Sombart, even economic life is composed of a body and a soul. Read more …

El mercado es una institución inherentemente global.

A menudo, son completamente desconocidos.
