George W. Bush is back in the news to promote his horrible picture book, Out of Many, One. The picture book, as its title evokes, urges readers to see America as a vast, multicultural landscape where everyone can belong. Most of his public statements in support of the book have touted mass immigration and the superiority of immigrants. He’s backed amnesty and denounced the Republican Party for its “nativism” and “isolationism.” (more…)
Imagine if I screamed my lungs bloody all day and all night, for years on end, about the Devil and how he’s the greatest threat to humanity. And then, let’s say a well-tempered Satanist tried to counter my caterwauling by saying, “Relax, fella — the Devil’s not that bad.”
If I replied, “The Devil doesn’t exist, you retard,” would I sound crazy? (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…)
Imagine that your house catches fire. You run out, family and pets in tow, to try your darndest to put out the fire. Imagine your neighbor looking on, saying “well, it’s not my house.” What’s wrong with that situation? Well, fire has a tendency to spread. Pretty soon, if your house is on fire, your neighbors’ houses will likewise catch fire. (more…)
Peter Delyan was a famous Balkan hero who led an uprising in 1040 against the Byzantine Empire. Comparisons to William Wallace or Braveheart wouldn’t be out of place, as Delyan was a larger-than-life character that was able to lead ordinary peasants into battle and revolt against a larger, occupying force.

Kevin MacDonald’s Individualism & the Western Liberal Tradition: Aristocratic Individualism
In Part 1 of my detailed examination of Kevin MacDonald’s Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition: Evolutionary Origins, History, and Prospects for the Future (2019) I covered MacDonald’s argument in chapter one that Europe’s founding peoples consisted of three population groups: (more…)
I attended a small (about 160 students per grade) Midwestern high school only ten minutes from a metropolis, but the neighborhood had large houses with high property taxes and the district had gerrymandered the auto-enrollment zone to keep the school about 90 percent white with a smattering of Asians (several boys named Tenzin).

Darryl Cooper: I want to ask you a little bit about the United States specifically. Your most recent post on Counter-Currents was a remembrance of Francis Parker Yockey, who’s best-known for his first book Imperium, and as a title that implies he advocated a pan-European empire. (more…)

Quench the Smoldering Wick
“I want to fit in!” — Patrick Bateman, American Psycho
Whatever one’s opinion of A Confederacy of Dunces, it surely must be the funniest book ever to take place in New Orleans, a city that seems to attract a more somber muse, such as Tennessee Williams or even Anne Rice. (more…)

What does it mean to be exactly where you should be? How does one live authentically? Neil Kramer, Mike Enoch, Matthew Raphael Johnson, Morgoth, and Greg Johnson talk about being, ethnicity, Heidegger, rootedness, and man’s relationship to location.
7. Concluding Reflections
I turn now to some thoughts on how the foregoing treatment of the influence of the past on the present ought to affect our own present, when we finish this essay and return to the real world.
It is a well-known fact that our ancestors acted with awareness of membership in the clan: trying to be worthy of their own ancestors, and not to disgrace them. (more…)
6. The Presence of the Past: A View from the Margins of Science
Some of the above remarks might suggest that we should interpret the Germanic hamingja–fylgja teaching as a mythic, symbolic, or even superstitious way of understanding the phenomenon of inheritance – something our ancestors relied upon because they did not have the modern science of genetics. (more…)
Having now discussed the clannic being of the individual purely in philosophical terms, I now turn to a consideration of the treatment of this idea in the Germanic tradition.
The first thing we must note is what can be called the “primacy of the past” in that tradition. (more…)
This essay presents an “ontology of the individual.” The theory is new, though it has very old roots. “Ontology” is the branch of philosophy that studies being-as-such, or “being as being,” as Aristotle expressed it. My argument is that the being of an individual person is bound up with that individual’s relation to his family or clan. (more…)

Puisque le libéralisme, en tant qu’idéologie fondée sur les droits de l’individu, appelle à « la libération vis-à-vis de toutes les formes d’identité collective en général, [et est donc] entièrement incompatible avec l’ethnos et l’ethnocentrisme, et est l’expression d’un ethnocide théorique et technologique systématique », l’« ethnocentrisme » et l’affirmation positive de l’identité « ethnique » sont vues par Dugin comme une base potentielle pour la résistance au libéralisme.

Ya que el Liberalismo, como una ideología fundada sobre los derechos del individuo, llama por la “liberación de todas las formas de identidad colectiva en general, [y por lo tanto es] completamente incompatible con el ethnos y el etnocentrismo, y es una expresión de un teóricamente sistemático y tecnológico etnocidio”, el “etnocentrismo” y la afirmación positiva de la identidad “étnica” son vistas por Dugin como una potencial base para la resistencia al Liberalismo.

The ethnos continues to exist as the substratum of traditional societies. For example, the pre-Indo-European ethne continue to exist as the third function of Indo-European societies. Dugin explains the emergence of traditional civilizations through the emergence of nomadic pastoralism, that is, the appearance, from out of autochthonous agricultural society, of small, nomadic groups of war-like herdsmen.
Since liberalism, as an ideology founded on the rights of the individual, calls for “the liberation from all forms of collective identity in general, [and is therefore] entirely incompatible with the ethnos and ethnocentrism, and is an expression of a systematic theoretical and technological ethnocide,” “ethnocentrism” and the positive affirmation of “ethnic” identity are viewed by Dugin as a potential base for resistance to liberalism.

Modern Right-wingers who assert the importance of racial differences and advocate racial separatism, especially White Nationalists, face a number of philosophical challenges which they need to be aware of and ready to address. It is all too common to rely on presuppositions, assumptions, or implications without being prepared to respond to more in-depth issues or the complications involving the interpretation of facts and ideas.
