The Ways of the World

Arnold Friberg, Lehi and His People Arrive in the Promised Land, 1952-1955.

1,658 words

My views on faith and spirituality have matured as I have gotten older. But when I was a teenager, heavy metal was my life and my religion. Unfortunately, this led to conflicts with my father as he returned to the Mormon Church. Despite rebelling against my father and the Mormon Church, I gained some important insights on human nature, self-reliance, and perseverance. These lessons can help the Dissident Right build communities across religious lines while still maintaining our personal views and beliefs. Read more …

Homer Gets Canceled

Detail, Arnold Böcklin, Odysseus boasting to Polyphemus, 1896.

1,772 words

Anyone with a decent education knows that the Iliad and Odyssey concern the fall of Troy and the struggle of Odysseus against a series of eldritch terrors on his voyage homeward. The timeless appeal is clear; the style is quite gripping, which especially comes out if one has a good translation or happens to know Greek. Read more …

Colin Jordan’s Merrie England 2,000

5,336 words

Colin Jordan
Merrie England 2,000
Sandycroft Publications: 1993

In earlier times, there was much speculative fiction about conditions around the turn of the millennium. (We’re still waiting for those hovercars, dammit. . .) Other literature focuses more on changes in society than imaginative technology. Read more …

The No Time to Die Trailers

1,779 words

Since my pre-review based on the first trailer of Denis Villeneuve’s much-anticipated and much-postponed Dune got a good discussion going, I decided to do the same with the equally-hyped, equally-postponed Bond movie No Time to Die.

Everybody has a time to die, including James Bond. Bond has cheated death countless times, but this time his number may be up. If so, the death certificate will list COVID-19. Read more …

The Second Civil War:
Did a 1997 HBO Film Accidentally Presage Today’s America?

2,458 words

In 1998, when I was 12 years old, my father and I were watching television one evening when we stumbled upon an HBO made-for-TV movie called The Second Civil War.

The film has been largely forgotten in the years since, but its content — and the eerily accurate predictions within it — are quite astounding to behold today, 22 years later.

The film was directed by Joe Dante and has an ensemble cast featuring Denis Leary, Dan Hedaya, James Earl Jones, Beau Bridges, Phil Hartman, Read more …

The PJs

2,140 words

The PJs was an animated television sitcom series that unfortunately ran for only three seasons, from 1999 to 2001. Shockingly by today’s standards, the series focused on lampooning inner-city blacks, depicting them as buffoons in a way that would only be acceptable today if the subjects were white. It was not so long ago that Read more …

Columbus Day Special
Life Styles: Native & Imposed

2,919 words

For decades now, African American leaders have been calling for a formal United States apology for the American role in the slave trade, with some even demanding reparations. Indian tribes proclaim their tax-exempt status as something they are owed for a legacy of persecution by the United States. Mexican Americans in the southwest United States seek to incorporate this region, including California, into Mexico, or even to set up an independent nation, Aztlan, that will recreate the glories of the Aztec empire, destroyed centuries ago by the imperialistic Spaniards.  Read more …

Civil War Movies:
Good vs. Bad

1,841 words

There was a time that the American mainstream was really interested in the US Civil War of 1860-1865. That time was before Obama’s gloomy second term empowered the insane asylum of weeping non-whites, deviants, mattoids, and Marxists that rejected all American history Read more …

I don’t want to be like some passive artist for people to go, “Oh, what do you think of Tom Macdonald,” and they’re like, “You can take him or leave him.” I don’t want that. I want people to go either, “Yo, I love that guy,” or “Yo, I f*****g hate that guy.” I want an emotional response to this stuff.

Are Things as Bad as They Seem?

Franz Geffels, The Relief of Vienna, 1683-1694.

2,905 words

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. Read more …

Storytelling

2,246 words

Storytelling (2001) is the most politically incorrect movie I have ever seen. Indeed, it is so un-PC that it could never have been made today.

Director Todd Solondz is a really sick guy. His films Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness, Palindromes, and Life During Wartime can justly be accused of fixating on bullying, rape, pedophilia, abortion, suicide, and murder. Read more …

Tucker Carlson & Blake Neff

1,236 words

Over the weekend, there was a bit of a buzz around the announced “resignation” of Blake Neff, who worked for Tucker Carlson on Fox News as his head writer. A statement put out by Fox’s management suggested that Carlson would address the issue on Monday. Evidently, Carlson’s writer, Neff, had committed the Orwellian thought crime of “shitposting” on the internet under a pseudonym and had been outed by CNN’s Oliver Darcy. Read more …

The Making of an American Trav

“I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

3,923 words

I’m not going to claim that I have been totally 1488 from day one or that I came goose-stepping out of the womb. But I think I have always been instinctively and intuitively a race realist. Or at least, I have been since around the age of 8. The first black person I ever met was this kid named Scooter when I was in kindergarten. This would have been in the early 80s. Read more …

Here we go again.

Renowned Civil War General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife’s remains are in the process of being removed from the Health Sciences Park in Memphis.

We can thank the activist Left for going the extra mile to defend us from such dangerous artifacts of American history. Nothing screams “the civil rights battle of our time” like knocking down monuments and exhuming corpses of evil, racist white men. Read more …

Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream —
Lingering in the golden gleam —
Life, what is it but a dream?

Encouraging Signs for 2020

Joseph Wright of Derby, A Philosopher Lecturing on the Orrery, circa 1766

1,166 words

I believe that optimism is a sucker’s game. Motivation is for losers. If you cannot find motivation within yourself no amount of cheerleading will make you succeed. Optimism is the enemy of reality, and reality is the only path to truth. Likewise, the dire pessimism expressed by so many on the Dissident Right is a constraint on the perception of reality.

The Unbearable Smallness of Modernity

1,733 words

There is an old joke that has been variously ascribed to everyone from Leopold von Ranke to Henry Kissinger to the effect that “campus politics are the most vicious of all because the stakes are so low.” Everywhere I go now it seems that campus-style politics predominate. Sure, we face an existential crisis in the West, but to what end? Our enemies now seem more worthy of our pity than of our contempt. Dr. Faust sold his soul to the Devil for unlimited power and Helen of Troy. Read more …
