Trump’s Cornball American History

1,429 words

One of President Trump’s last acts in office offered his view of American history. Just a few days before Joe Biden’s inauguration, the Trump administration released both the 1776 Commission Report and the list of statues for the proposed National Garden of American Heroes. Read more …

The Fear of Radicalization 

1,394 words

We are living in remarkable times in which historic events have become so commonplace that they are forgotten within weeks. That won’t be the case for January 6, 2021. There is no going back to more peaceful times, and the hysterical mainstream media is correct in that January 6 is going to prove to be a 9/11-style Rubicon. Read more …

How Ellis Islanders Saw Their War Against WASPs

1,770 words

E. Digby Baltzell
The Protestant Establishment: Aristocracy and Caste in America
New York: Random House, 1964

The WASPs can never get any love. Their power once evoked equal amounts of admiration and resentment in American society. Now they’re just a relic and a punching bag for every other group’s ethnic grievances. Read more …

Sun & Steel:
The Tatenokai Phenomenon in Brief

1,919 words

In post-1945 Japan — as in most of the states that lost in World War II — American occupation brought about radical political and social changes. In the 1946 to 1948 Tokyo trial (similar to Nuremberg), several leaders of the war cabinet were sentenced to death or long prison terms. It was also stipulated in the constitution that Japan cannot have its own armed forces, only Jieitai (Japan Self Defense Forces), a small number of volunteers for self-defense purposes. Read more …

Loving Tim Pool

Tim Pool

2,680 words

It’s always interesting when I find someone who shares a clean sweep of my politics but for largely different reasons. Such a person seems completely in line with my outlook, but really isn’t. Although in Tim Pool’s case, I’ll bet that he is and just doesn’t realize it yet.

For the past several months Tim Pool has been banging the Trump drum. Read more …

Macronism vs. Radical Islam

1,290 words

Polish version here

French President Emmanuel Macron issued a declaration of war this month against radical Islam after a school teacher was stabbed to death for showing Muhammad cartoons to his class. “What we must attack is Islamist separatism,” Macron said earlier this month. The president emphasized that “secularism is the cement Read more …

Macron: Between Naïveté & Impotence

1,001 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Nicolas Gauthier: With his speech at Les Mureaux, and his promise to begin fighting “Islamic separatism,” Emmanuel Macron seems to have discovered previously unglimpsed realities. Is this to his credit? Can we say that he is now regaining control?

Alain de Benoist: Macron has many faults, but he’s not a complete idiot. Read more …

Hendrik de Man, The Right, & Ethical Socialism

5,462 words

“Socialism” is intrinsic to the “Right.” When journalists and academics refer in one breath to “liberalism, neoliberalism, and the Right-wing,” that attests to their ignorance, not to the accuracy of any such bastardization. Even at its most basic level of understanding, it seems to have been forgotten that in Britain there were Tories and Whigs in opposition. Now, Toryism has become so detached from its origins Read more …

Building Coalitions

5,389 words

The demographics problem is a growing threat, perhaps the greatest one facing Western civilization. Minorities have been bloc voting for ages, of course. The problem is that when whites finally muster the political will to stand together and take our own side, we might be less than half the population by then. In an electoral system, Read more …

Black Lives MAGA:
Republicans are the Real Social Justice Warriors

2,924 words

A crime scene. The aesthetics of a horror movie. Sinister music. This is the latest Trump attack ad exposing Joe Biden’s “racism problem,” released a day after rioting in Chicago. The Trump campaign is engaging in offense archaeology, digging up a Biden statement from all the way back in 1973. Other Trump ads criticized Biden’s Read more …

Notes on Populism

Norman Rockwell, Study for “Freedom of Speech”

3,380 words

Populism seeks to rescue popular government from corrupt elites. Naturally, the elites strike back. The most common accusation from elite commentators is that populism is “anti-democratic.” As Yascha Mounk frames it, populism is “the people vs. democracy.” I argue that populism is not anti-democratic, but it is anti-liberal. (See Donald Thoresen’s review of Mounk’s The People vs. Democracy here.)

Many critics of populism accuse it of being a form of white identity politics, Read more …

Notre Dame des Fascistes,
Part III: Excursus on Evola

3,927 words

Part 1, Part 2

All this anti-Masonry and TradCath stuff; there was something familiar with all this, until at some point I exclaimed again, “You’ve seen these films before, haven’t you, my man!” It’s Baron Evola’s doppelganger!

Although to be honest, it may have been Will herself who clued me in. Read more …

We’re the Bad Guys?

René Magritte, Golconda, 1953.

2,173 words

The twofold crises of the Black Lives Matter movement and the COVID-19 pandemic are perfect opportunities for modern nihilists and culture-destroyers of every stripe to let off all the brakes.

Chinese Handcuffs

922 words

Imagine, if you will, the perfect system of torture and restraint. A device so effective that the more forcefully you resist it, the tighter it grips you, and the more hopeless your chance of escape. Such a contraption does in fact exist. You might recognize it as the anodyne but frustrating toy called “Chinese handcuffs.” Read more …

Is Xenophilia a Mental Illness?

1,583 words

A Vice article published on Tuesday has reignited the debate over whether racism (or “pathological bias,” to use the clinical term proposed by psychiatrists) should be considered a mental illness and included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. In turn, I would like to raise the question of whether pathological xenophilia should be considered a mental illness. Read more …

Notes on Schmitt’s Crisis & Ours

Carl Schmitt, 1888–1985

3,994 words

Like many of his books, Carl Schmitt’s The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy (1923) is a slender volume packed with explosive ideas.[1] The title of the English translation is somewhat misleading. The German title, Die geistesgeschichtliche Lage des heutigen Parlamentarismus, is more literally rendered The Intellectual-Historical Position of Contemporary Parliamentarism. But the word “crisis” is still appropriate, because parliamentary democracy in Weimar Germany really was in crisis. Read more …

Placemaking

1,494 words

What makes a place? Perhaps the best definition is simply where one feels they can linger. A “place” is a location that can be both a destination and a path. When we consider places, they invariably have a few attributes that make stopping there or passing through there a memorable experience. The opposite of a “place,” as it where, Read more …

A Long Time Coming

1,067 words

Much has been said in recent months about the cult of radical Leftism donning a veil of religious zealotry over the George Floyd death and Black Lives Matter protests. In truth, America’s excessively libertine, egalitarian idealism has always been a twisted morality play that relentlessly seeks to destroy the strong and healthy in favor of the Read more …

Everyone Hates Woodrow Wilson

1,363 words

Woodrow Wilson once stood as a hero to modern progressives. The 28th president’s moral idealism, disregard for constitutional fealty, and belief in the goodness of “big government” endeared him to liberals of the Barack Obama era. Commentators positively noted the similarities between Wilson and Obama Read more …

On the 15th of September, 1938, UK Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain famously flew across the English Channel (overcoming his fear of flying) for the monumental purpose of meeting Adolf Hitler at the Berghof in order to avert the Sudetenland crisis, and hopefully (yet futilely) avoid plunging Europe into a Second World War. Upon his departure, he gave an impromptu speech to the British press in which he offered his favorite childhood self-motivating pep talk, Read more …

How to Make a Libertarian Cry

5,358 words

Those in the socially liberal, fiscally conservative (SLFC) spectrum of ideologies often have a naïve faith in unrestrained capitalism. This is especially so for the ones with the most panache (such as it is), like libertarians and Objectivists. These two, unlike the bland neoconservatives and certain kinds of liberals, are also quite skeptical about government. Read more …
