2,922 words

Michael Kellogg
The Russian Roots of Nazism: White Émigrés and the Making of National Socialism, 1917–1945
Cambridge University Press, 2005

With the near-universal demonization of the Third Reich, historians have developed a blind spot for the genesis of German anti-Semitism. Michael Kellogg, in his 2005 work The Russian Roots of Nazism, sheds a sharp light on this topic and points our attention eastward. Read more …

The Luck of the Irish

J. C. Leyendecker, Cú Chulainn Riding His Chariot into Battle, 1911.

1,705 words

If you were to ask the average American about Irish culture, they might talk about leprechauns, shamrocks, Guinness, and St. Patrick’s Day. While these might be silly tropes and marketing gimmicks, they sparked my interest in Irish mythology and folklore. From Táin Bó Cúailnge to the Annals of Ulster, there are many stories of Irish heroes who protected their land from invaders. As I walked along the Ulster coast this week, I thought about those heroes. Read more …

A Comic View of History

Hal Foster’s Prince Valiant, June 19, 1937, page 2.

1,576 words

I always enjoyed reading newspaper comics as a kid. Whether I was learning to read or developing my appreciation for surreal humor, I looked forward to each week’s new strips. Some series even sparked my interest in European literature and history. Just as history repeats itself, I have started taking an interest in comic strips again. From brave princes to humorous frogs, the Dissident Right can use comic artwork to promote our history, culture, and identity. Read more …

Heroic Road Songs

Simon Marmion, The Eight Phases of the Song of Roland, ca. 15th century.

1,863 words

I sold my car before moving to Europe a few years ago. I had this car for several years and took it on various road trips across the US. During a few of these trips, I thought about The Song of Roland, the French poem from the 11th century. From tales of tragedy to stories of heroism, this epic poem has given me a lot to think about during the various road trips of my life. Read more …

August Kubizek’s The Young Hitler I Knew

6,990 words

Suppose your best friend from when you were a young’un became the meanest hombre ever to leave boot-prints on the ground. It indeed happened, on the wild frontier of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Had Attila the Hun been brought forward in time to meet him, he wouldn’t have challenged a gunslinger like that to a duel at twenty paces. The town of Linz might not be big enough for both of them, but the 5th-century “Scourge of God” would’ve known better than to tangle with the dastardly desperado of the Danube! Read more …

Richard III: England’s Favorite Evil Uncle

Detail, John Everett Millais’ foreboding The Princes in the Tower, 1876.

5,894 words

No author would be able to get away with writing such a story in a novel, it was so fantastic. Providence and Destiny are real. In 2012, a group of amateur enthusiasts and archaeologists traveled to Leicestershire (located in the heart of England), site of the 1485 Battle of Bosworth Field. They were on a quixotic mission: to find the remains of Richard III, England’s most controversial king, in the vast area surrounding the old Grey Friars Church — and on a shoestring budget.

Columbus Day Special
Life Styles: Native & Imposed

2,919 words

For decades now, African American leaders have been calling for a formal United States apology for the American role in the slave trade, with some even demanding reparations. Indian tribes proclaim their tax-exempt status as something they are owed for a legacy of persecution by the United States. Mexican Americans in the southwest United States seek to incorporate this region, including California, into Mexico, or even to set up an independent nation, Aztlan, that will recreate the glories of the Aztec empire, destroyed centuries ago by the imperialistic Spaniards.  Read more …

Sabaton’s The Great War

1,118 words

Sabaton is a Swedish metal band hailing from Falun. Their musical style, in the loose sense of the word, is mostly unremarkable power metal combined with a typically European harte vocal inflection courtesy of the group’s part-Czech lead singer, Joakim Brodén. Sabaton’s shtick, for lack of a more fitting term, is their use of “history” Read more …

1,777 words

When I was living in Hungary, I took my girlfriend on a day trip to the border town of Komárno, Slovakia. Despite having a nice meal and a scenic walk around the town, I ended up complaining and arguing about trivial matters. Near the end of the day, we saw a memorial to Mór Jókai, the famous Hungarian writer Read more …

Civil War Movies:
Good vs. Bad

1,841 words

There was a time that the American mainstream was really interested in the US Civil War of 1860-1865. That time was before Obama’s gloomy second term empowered the insane asylum of weeping non-whites, deviants, mattoids, and Marxists that rejected all American history Read more …

Winter of Solitude

Juliusz Kossak, Kmita’s Companions on a Ride, 1885.

1,763 words

When I first moved to Eastern Europe, I did not have any friends in the region. Thus, I spent the winter of 2017 in solitude. To avoid any feelings of loneliness, I set a goal to finally read Henryk Sienkiewicz’s trilogy of historical novels. I also set a goal to go for a walk each evening. Whether I was in Lviv, Rzeszów, or Minsk, Read more …

How bad are things now? “Pretty bad” is a decent answer, though a brief one. We’re faced with daunting challenges, quite obviously, though it’s a mischaracterization to say that all is lost. This has some very practical considerations. Read more …

Blood, Fire, & Spirit

Mårten Eskil Winge, Thor’s Fight with the Giants, 1872.

1,839 words

When the average person thinks of Sweden, they probably think of IKEA, meatballs, ABBA, and PewDiePie. When people in the Dissident Right think about Sweden, we often think of a country at the pinnacle of anti-white propaganda and anarcho-tyranny. Nevertheless, Swedish culture has had a great influence on my life, from the music I listen to each day to the furniture I fall asleep on each night. Furthermore, much of our fascination and modern-day perception of the Vikings comes from a small group of Swedish writers from the Geatish Society Read more …

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

A Case for Optimism

Eli Lotar, Hôpital des Quinze-Vingts, 1928.

1,129 words

Editor’s Note: The following is a subchapter from Wilmot Robertson’s book, The Ethnostate. It may provide some encouragement in these trying times. For more on Robertson, see Spencer J. Quinn’s review of The Ethnostate and all posts tagged Wilmot Robertson.

Pessimism is a vital ingredient of tragedy, which is the highest form of drama and the dominant theme in great literature, art, and music. No optimist could possibly have created characters like Oedipus, Lear, and Faust. Still, optimism is a major force for great deeds in the real world. Few will struggle to perform heroic feats unless they feel that “the world,” Read more …

It feels like a slap in the face when you think you are living in interesting times, but then you realize, no. No, you were not. Those times, or really, our memories of those times which slowly evaporate even as they cling more tightly to the fear centers and emotion hubs of our minds, were not terribly interesting at all, were they?

The Life of the Wanderer

Stephen the Great.

1,791 words

Some might consider me a wanderer. I have spent most of my adult life living and working in various US states and European countries. Since the spread of COVD-19 this year, travel restrictions have forced me to stay in the US longer than originally planned. I have spent a lot of time these last few months reminiscing on my travels and adventures. For some reason, I keep thinking about my adventures in Moldova. Reflecting on my time there has given me insight on myself, my life, and my goals as a white nationalist. Read more …
