Sándor Márai’s Hungarian Classic: Embers

3,469 words

He came from a world where soft music lilted through dining rooms and ballrooms and salons . . . it was played to make life sweeter and more festive, to make women’s eyes flash and men’s vanity throw sparks . . . [his] music on the other hand didn’t offer forgetfulness; it aroused people to the feelings of passion and guilt and demanded that [they] be truer to themselves . . . such music is upsetting . . .

On Bioleninism

1,496 words

I have a special relationship with the concept of bioleninism. While I’d been based and redpilled for a while, reading Spandrell’s initial posts in early 2018 resonated with me on a deep level. It jumpstarted my own path as a commentator and a more active participant in dissident politics. In fact, for the bulk of 2018, I functioned as a Read more …

Towards a Right-Wing Critical Theory

2,503 words

Amid the social turmoil of the late 1960s, the German Communist student Rudi Dutschke called for a “long march through the institutions” as the preferred strategy of ensuring the victory of global Marxist revolution. The success of this initiative is no more prominent in the West than in today’s academia, where Frankfurt School Read more …

Rhodesia Fights Back!

3,011 words

If you’re watching a helicopter combat scene with the opening song in Act 3 of Die Walküre as the soundtrack, then the film is Apocalypse Now. If you’re watching a helicopter combat scene with music by Clem Tholet, John Edmond, or maybe even a disco track, it’s probably a documentary of the Rhodesian Bush War.

The results are familiar to us as what happens when whites are disunited and opposed by our own government. However, Read more …

Objective Fictions & Subjective Realities:
The Need for a Nationalist Postmodernism

5,724 words

Perhaps the best way to think about “postmodernism” from the Right is not as a problematic philosophical tradition, but as a philosophical tradition with a problem. On the one hand, “postmodernism” may be loosely defined as a philosophical turn that delegitimized traditional aesthetic and moral standards, and “deconstructed” seemingly self-evident categories like ethnicity and culture. On the other hand, it could also be defined as a school of thought which delegitimized the scientific, materialist, Read more …

Nations, Not Projects:
A Response to Keith Woods

Imagine drinking beer with your neighbor. Imagine your families having a barbecue. Imagine helping your neighbor fix his vehicle, which is notorious for breaking down at inopportune moments. Imagine your neighbor picking your kids up from school because you can’t get out of work.

Then imagine that the next day, you’re shooting your neighbor, burning his house down, killing his sons, and raping his daughters. Oh, and you appropriate his car for your use afterward. Read more …

Okay, so you’ve managed to forge an alliance of European nations which depends not on “pooling sovereignty,” as the EU is fond of describing its many infringements on the sovereignty of nations, but the pooling of military and diplomatic capability while respecting each European nation’s borders and sovereignty. Things are going well, Read more …

Sympathy for the Dragon

1,107 words

People want someone to blame for the coronavirus outbreak. The obvious culprit is China. It originated in China, China tried to cover up the outbreak for weeks, and the communist state has not been open with what it knows about the virus.

But liberals don’t want to blame China. They want to blame Donald Trump. Surprisingly, many on our side share this view. Read more …

“Resistance is Futile”:
Hazony on Nations, Empires, & Minorities

1,771 words

Yoram Hazony’s argument in The Virtue of Nationalism (reviewed here and here) depends on a hard either/or between the nation-state and the empire. A nation is either sovereign or it isn’t. Empires inevitably destroy the sovereignty of the states they incorporate, even if this fact is cloaked in lovey liberal euphemisms.

Hazony, moreover, argues that even though empires might appeal to universalistic ideologies, they always begin with a particular people, a particular ethnic core, Read more …

Neocons at the Aughts’ Box Office

2,724 words

Remember the 2000s?

It was a simpler time. For most of the decade, smartphones were non-existent. Twitter did not drive the news. People still bought CDs. Not every movie at the theater was based on a Marvel character. Jnco jeans (the horror!) were in style.

It was also the time when neoconservatism ruled the political landscape. It wasn’t just an ideology limited to Washington, DC; the media also pushed it. Read more …

Valkoisuus

2,476  words

Suomentanut Timo Hännikäinen; English original here

Yksi ilmeinen tapa hyökätä valkoista nationalismia vastaan on väittää, että itse valkoisuuden käsite on ongelmallinen. Käsittelen nyt neljää sellaista vastaväitettä. Ensiksi, valkoisuuden käsitettä pidetään poliittisesti tarpeettomana. Toiseksi, valkoisuuden oletetaan kumoavan etnisen identiteetin. Kolmanneksi, valkoisuuden väitetään olevan sosiaalinen konstruktio, ei luonnollinen kategoria. Read more …

Whiteness

3,352 words

Translation: Finnish, Ukrainian

An obvious line of attack against White Nationalism is the claim that the very concept of whiteness is problematic. I wish to deal with four such objections. First, the concept of whiteness is supposed to be politically unnecessary. Second, whiteness is alleged to be subversive of ethnic identity. Third, whiteness is said to be a social construct, not a real natural kind. Fourth, the viability of White Nationalism is said to depend on an airtight definition of whiteness, which is elusive.  Read more …

Reframing White Nationalism

3,120 words

four-generationsWhat do we want? A white ethnostate. Much has been written about this elusive state, and I am sure there is much controversy and difference of opinion about it, so I won’t attempt to define it here. Suffice to say that the ethnostate will be a nation state founded by whites, for whites, and it will be free of the racial chaos and strife which has come to characterize multi-racial societies. White Nationalism may have many goals, but the ethnostate is the first and most important one, and to achieve it will be to win. So far so good.  Read more …

What is the relevance of what I call the Old Right — German National Socialism, Italian Fascism, and related interwar national-populist movements — to White Nationalism today? The question would not even arise, of course, if there were no connection at all. Many White Nationalist ideas are either direct descendants of Old Right ideologies, or they are their cousins, meaning that they share common ancestors, that they are branches of the same ideological tree.  Read more …

¿Cuál es la relevancia de lo que llamo Vieja Derecha –Nacional Socialismo Alemán, Fascismo Italiano, y los movimientos nacional-populistas del período entreguerras- para el Nacionalismo Blanco hoy en día? La pregunta no se plantearía, por supuesto, si no hubiera conexión alguna. Muchas ideas Nacionalistas Blancas son descendientes directos o primos de las ideologías de la Vieja Derecha, esto quiere decir que comparten los mismos ancestros, y que son ramas del mismo árbol ideológico.  Read more …

The following text is an excerpt from J. F. C. Fuller’s The Generalship of Alexander the Great (Rutgers, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 1960), pp. 308–311. The quote from Hermann Rauschning’s fraudulent book Hitler Speaks does not invalidate Fuller’s argument. The title is editorial.
