A couple of days before I was due to leave for the 2021 American Renaissance conference, I told a good friend of mine that it was not too late to change his mind and come along. He’s very much on our wavelength but is anti-social and finds our movement gatherings somewhat tiresome. “I think I know what they’re going to say,” he responded, sarcastically — implying that he’s heard it all before.

Suprémacistes: L’enquête Mondiale chez les Gourous de la Droite Identitaire
Paris: Plon, 2020
This book results from interviews with leading thinkers of the race-conscious right — the so-called alternative right — which seeks to bring race to the forefront of political debate. The title Suprémacistes is, however, misleading; for the author, Philippe-Joseph Salazar, nowhere describes the people who are the subject of this study as supremacists (more…)

Are Things as Bad as They Seem?
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. (more…)

You Know You’re Right
You are here because you are convinced of the rightness of your ideas. This is not meant in a specific, epistemological sense; as in, your ideas have been verified by some kind of universal truth or that they are backed by data drawn from rigor, though these things could be applied to many of the ideas we hold on the Right. I mean that you are convinced enough of what you hold to be true that you are taking a risk in upholding it, even in the face of great adversaries. (more…)

A Case for Optimism
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,” (more…)

Hope & the Red Dragon
I have always wanted to visit Wales. Ever since I was a kid I was fascinated with the Welsh flag, known in Welsh as “Y Ddraig Goch,” which means “the red dragon.” The red dragon on the Welsh flag has become a symbol of Wales and all things Welsh. (more…)
Here is the video of Greg Johnson’s talk at the Scandza Forum in Stockholm last Saturday, March 30. Greg discusses the many trends which indicate why those on the Right should be feeling optimistic about the future, given that our metapolitical efforts are beginning to bear fruit, and why the desperate situation that Right-wing terrorists and their supporters feel that they have been forced into simply isn’t borne out by the facts.

Historical Optimism & Historical Perspective
It is traditional around New Year’s Day to be reflective of the year past and to anticipate the events of the coming year. First of all, I would like to commend Spencer Quinn for his excellent article “No Goal More Noble: Thoughts for the New Year” that appeared yesterday on Counter-Currents. Mr. Quinn’s eschewal of the black pill at the end of this most blackpilling of years represents an act of moral will that is truly inspiring. (more…)

The Revolutionary Conservative Critique of Oswald Spengler
Oswald Spengler is by now well-known as one of the major thinkers of the German Conservative Revolution of the early 20th Century. In fact, he is frequently cited as having been one of the most determining intellectual influences on German Conservatism of the interwar period – along with Arthur Moeller van den Bruck and Ernst Jünger – to the point where his cultural pessimist philosophy is seen to be representative of Revolutionary Conservative views in general (although in reality most Revolutionary Conservatives held more optimistic views).
