If there’s one fascinating thing about the progressives, it’s that they never really pause on the road to progress. And even when the discovery of their new advances leads us to believe that their model is not sustainable, so devoid of common sense does their madness seem that, paradoxically, this permanent progress tends to prove them right: Progress ostensibly knows no limits.

There is Danger as the World’s Superpower Sees Itself Sinking into Second Place
The following is the text of the speech that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered at the 32nd Bálványos Summer Free University and Student Camp in Tusványos (Băile Tuşnad in Romanian), Transylvania, Romania last Saturday, July 22. The text is reprinted, with some minor alterations of style, from the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister’s official website. The title is editorial.
Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Summer Camp. We have arrived here after advancing through the Romanian troops. (more…)
Immigration has become a major issue in Central Europe since 2015, whereas since the fall of Communism the primary social issue in this region had been emigration . But a lot has changed since the famous “migrant crisis” along the Balkan route — and the faces you see in the streets of Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, and Bratislava are changing, too.
Over a few weeks in the summer of 2015, a veritable migratory route was set up stretching from Turkey and Greece to Hungary, the guardian of the Schengen Zone’s southeastern border. (more…)
The French-language news portal Breizh-Info has published a long interview in French with Hungarian Member of Parliament László Toroczkai, who is the leader of the opposition nationalist parliamentary group Mi Hazánk Mozgalom. The following is an English translation.
László Toroczkai has been a leading figure in Hungarian nationalism for 25 years. His biography has few equals in this political milieu. He began as a young parliamentary assistant working with the Hungarian Justice and Life Party, or MIÉP, in the late 1990s, which was a nationalist party that had parliamentary representation between 1998 and 2002.

Inspirace taktikou protivníka:
Identitáři v Budapešti rozdávali potraviny potřebným
English original here
V sobotu 11. března jsem měl to potěšení připojit se k členům Identitás Generáció (Generace Identity), jedné ze dvou maďarských poboček evropského identitárního hnutí (tou druhou je Identitesz), při jejich první akci rozdávání potravin budapešťským bezdomovcům. Identitáři se touto akcí zařadili do bohaté a rozmanité mozaiky nacionalistických stran, skupin a aktivit, jimž se dnes v Maďarsku tak daří. (more…)
If I had to choose a single word to describe the United States in the current year, it would be decay. Society, law, and standards of living are in free fall, and this spiritual decay is mirrored in the physical realm in crumbling infrastructure and the woke destruction of monuments.
A recent trip through Hungary was a welcome reprieve. Along with happier and healthier people, there is extensive renovation and construction. It is joked that the national bird of Hungary is the crane, due to the proliferation of construction cranes. (more…)
John Morgan talks about the prospects for uniting religion and ethnonationalism, as well as the inauspicious history that the two have with each other, in this video from the 2023 Counter-Currents Spring Retreat. The text of the talk, including links for more information, is here. (more…)
The following is the text of a talk that was given at the recent Counter-Currents Spring Retreat. The video can be seen here, or below.
Cyan asked me to speak on this topic, and before I begin, I just want to clarify something, because when it comes to these matters I’m overly pedantic. But historically speaking, ethnonationalism and religion don’t go together. This is because the nation-state itself, which was born out of either the French Revolution or the Second English Civil War, depending on who you ask, has always been secular and opposed to any mixing of politics and religion.

Happy Mother’s Day from Counter-Currents
Do It for Western Civilization!
First things first: Go call your mom. Okay! Now that you’re back, let’s talk about how wonderful she is for raising you, a person who ended up here at this publication. Motherhood is not easy, and more women today are opting for a child-free lifestyle due to financial pressure or climate concerns (check out “Why Environmentalists Should Have Large Families“). But what does that mean for our future as a people? (more…)

My Breakout from the Modern World:
The Hungarian Day of Honour Tour 2023, Part 1
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
Last night I received an envelope containing two commemoration cards from the Hungarian “Hazajáró Egylet” (“Homecoming association”). I plan to keep these cards with me for the rest of my life. They recognize the fact that I successfully completed more than half of a 60-kilometer “breakout tour” that I participated in on Saturday, February 11, 2023. (more…)
