Francis Parker Yockey was born 105 years ago today, September 18, in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.

Stát se tím, kým jsme: levicový etnocentrismus a osud Západu

Následující esej původně byla závěrečnou částí recenze Collina Clearyho na knihu Ricarda Duchesneho The Uniqueness of Western Civilization. Protože je v ní ale obsaženo příliš velice důležitých postřehů, než aby zůstaly „zastrčené“ na konci velice rozsáhlé knižní recenze, upravil jsem ji tak, aby fungovala i jako samostatný útvar – Greg Johnson.
Dokonce i ve většině moderních Zápaďanů – ano, i u našich politicky dokonale korektních akademiků – se dosud skrývá jakýsi míhavý záblesk starobylé, indoevropské thymotické přirozenosti. (more…)
Most classical liberal thinking, which is still ultimately liberal and thus subversive, is based on the idea of the Lockean social contract. But what if the idea of a social contract is a complete farce? Given that classical liberalism underpins much of lukewarm conservatism, if we knock out the idea of social contracts, we also knock out conservatism. (more…)
The following is the text of the speech that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered at the 31st Bálványos Summer Free University and Student Camp in Tusványos (Băile Tuşnad in Romanian), Transylvania, Romania last Saturday, July 23. The text is reprinted, with some added annotations, from the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister’s official website. The title is editorial. A video including the English text in subtitles is also linked below. (more…)
Note: This essay is occasioned by the new Imperium Press edition of Sorel’s Reflections on Violence, which is required reading.
Like Jack London, Georges Sorel (1847–1922) was a Left-wing writer whose primary influence today is on the Right. Sorel’s most influential book is Reflections on Violence, written in 1905–1906. (more…)
Thanks in no small part to Counter-Currents, the writings of Francis Parker Yockey are more popular than ever. The Centennial Editions of Yockey’s works follow upon at least two recent biographies of the post-war anti-liberal thinker. This is part of a trend I noted a few years ago. Yockey was all but unknown in his lifetime, but now is more read and relevant than mainstream contemporaries such as Drew Pearson, a Leftist who was once the most widely-read newspaper columnist in America, but faded into obscurity after his death.

Cryptocurrency: A Faustian Solution to a Faustian Problem
Modern economics are in large part defined by the premise that infinite growth is both possible and desirable — if not always in theory, then at least in how most major economic actors behave. The green line should always go up — at least in the long term. If one takes a step back, this is unrealistic. Even if we could create ever more producers and consumers and make them ever more efficient, there is a limited amount of resources: food, land, rare metals, oil, and so on. (more…)

Whenever I read a book with the intention of writing a review, I like to underline certain passages as well as jot notes in the margins. This quickly became an untenable approach for Christopher Pankhurst’s Numinous Machines, as there was simply too much to pull from the text. The book is a collection of essays that seeks out the numinous spirit in arts and culture in an era that is devoid of almost anything vital whatsoever. (more…)

“Many Strange & Terrible Days”: Gothic Science Fiction & Modern War, Part 1
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
It was perhaps the most famous description of a (space) alien in English literature. The narrator felt an “utter terror [grip] him” as a thing from a nightmare emerged slowly, slowly from the pit that its smoking spacecraft had cratered in the Earth. As its body “bulged up and caught the light, it glistened like wet leather.” A pair of huge, fathomless dark eyes regarded him intensely, “steadfastly. (more…)
In a previous article, I explained how it has become undeniable that America has died in spirit. But the flip side of such a gloomy outlook is actually quite cheerful. We cannot save “our nation” if we mean the old United States, but we can save “our nation” if we mean to shelter, guide, and nurture the beginning of a new nation that is completely different from the old in its essence, even if it may entail some external trappings from the old world.
