Zrovna jsem doposlouchal rozhovor Grega Johnsona s Markem Dyalem na rádiu Counter-Currents. Dyalova pouť od samolibého antirasistického skejťáckého pankáče a fanouška Public Enemy, přes studenta černošských studií až k nieztzscheánskému skinheadskému fašistovi je pro mě zároveň fascinující i povědomá.

“White Nationalism” is doomed.
And that’s okay.
As Vox Day and many others have pointed out over the years, the concept of “white nationalism” is a distinctly American notion. (more…)
Originally, I had planned for this essay to be a response to Jack Donovan’s still relatively recent essay, “Why I Am Not a White Nationalist.” However, I’ve decided that this essay would work better if thought of as an extended discussion of a couple of the topics raised by Donovan’s essay, rather than as another open letter response aimed at Donovan himself.

Last weekend, Counter-Currents sponsored the second meeting of the Northwest Forum in the Puget Sound area. The main speakers were Kevin MacDonald, who spoke on morality and moral signaling, and Jack Donovan, who spoke about violence in modern culture. We also heard from local activists, including a panel by members of the Cascadia group, which played an enormous role in the success of the event. (more…)

Progressives use every man’s natural fear of showing fear to manipulate him — inventing fake “phobias” and implying he is afraid of everything they want. (more…)
Recently on NPR, I heard an interview with Angus Deaton, the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics. Deaton discussed how white people in the United States are experiencing an “epidemic of despair” as evidenced by rates of alcoholism, substance abuse, and suicide higher among middle-aged whites than any other population group. Deaton surmised, and the interviewer seemed to concur, that these trends are caused by increasing economic inequality between the rich and the poor, (more…)

¿Quién ondea la bandera en Estados Unidos?
Todos la ondean en mítines políticos, pero las demócratas lesbianas trans-negras no ponen banderas en sus antejardines. No visten camisetas de “estos colores no huyen” ni izan mini-banderas en las antenas de sus camiones. (more…)
What is a Rune? and Other Essays
San Francisco: Counter-Currents Publishing, 2015
As a lifetime “non-believer” who has been delving into Germanic heathen worldviews and traditions for the past year or so, Collin Cleary’s What is a Rune? pulled a few ideas together for me at the right time, introduced some evocative concepts that I’d like to revisit in visual art, and inspired some new questions.

Vor ein paar Jahren entschied ich, daß ich einen Kodex brauchte, um danach zu leben: eine Reihe von Prinzipien, die mein Leben leiten. Nun, es ist nicht so, als hätte ich nicht bereits einige Prinzipien entdeckt, die mir als richtig erschienen; es war nicht so, als ob ich im Blindflug unterwegs gewesen wäre, ohne irgendwelche Überzeugungen. Aber ich hatte mich nie hingesetzt und darüber nachgedacht, woraus genau mein „Kodex“ bestand, und das alles zu Papier gebracht. (more…)
Cohesive Societies Check State Power:
On Francis Fukuyama’s The Origins of Political Order
The Origins of Political Order: From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution
New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2012
There’s so much meat in Francis Fukuyama’s The Origins of Political Order that someone could teach a college class on it, and someone should. It’s an expansive study of different political systems that attempts to develop a general theory of political development, and explain why different societies have formed different kinds of states — or none at all. (more…)
You may or may not be old enough to remember when the Internet was a new thing, but for a long time, web pages were not considered “credible” sources. If you were a serious person trying to make a serious point, you cited books, academic journals, established magazines and venerable old newspapers. (more…)

A Tribe Among the Trees:
Ernst Jünger’s The Forest Passage
The Forest Passage
Translated by Thomas Friese
New York: Telos Press, 2013
We all live in deserts.
Urban deserts. Suburban deserts. Even in rural areas it is difficult to escape the commercially refined silicates of mechanized and meaningless modernity that blow over and bury the fossilized remains of dead gods and old ways. (more…)
Amanda Marcotte recently wrote that “White men, as a group, vote Republican because they vote their resentments.”
The New York Times article she cited didn’t say or even imply anything about resentment. It did say that straight, working-class white men vote Republican because the Democratic Party has devoted the majority of its resources to appealing to women, gays and the various groups of less-white men who are nostalgically referred to as “minorities.” (more…)
Are Men the New Mexicans?
Pro-Male Feminists Are Still Feminists
German translation here
A few years ago, I decided I needed a code to live by: a set of principles to guide my life. Now, it’s not as if I hadn’t already discovered some principles that seemed right to me; it wasn’t as if I was flying blind, without any convictions. But I had never sat down and reflected on exactly what my “code” consisted in, and put it all on paper. So, I decided one day to do just that.
Veterans Day, 2013
Last night, at some point I looked over at the TV and saw hundreds of football fans in the stands holding up sign cards that read:
“THANK YOU MILITARY” (more…)
