Might As Well Nudge

1, 282 words

Everyone is familiar with psychological warfare, in which information is used to break down the morale of an enemy in wartime. It can also be used on individuals within a community in order to get them to act in a specific way. There’s also propaganda, which is an information campaign used by government to change public opinion 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 …

Self-Deception

Dispatches from the War on Corona

3,789 words

In March 2020, the world declared war on COVID-19.

The use of martial rhetoric with reference to peacetime political conflicts — the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty, the domestic arena of the War on Terror — has a long and dubious history in American politics. The appeal is obvious. Warlike language depicts every conflict as a life-or-death struggle, encourages mass mobilization, justifies significant intrusion into people’s lives, and provides a pretext for novel (and possibly illegal) political solutions.

Netflix’s (and Israel’s) The Spy

3,142 words

Poster for Netflix's The Spy.If the title of this review surprises you, it shouldn’t. Do not be disillusioned — this multi-part spy saga is transparent propaganda, promoted (if not partly financed, I suspect) by Israel. It’s as Kosher as Rosenfeld’s bagels.

But first, the story. It concerns a Sephardic Jewish man, Eli Cohen, born in Alexandria, Egypt. By posing as an importer of Argentinian products into Syria, he manages to ingratiate himself into Syrian political society. Using the name Kamel Thaabet, he befriends members of the Ba’ath political party, including Colonel Amin al-Hafez who would later become Syria’s president Read more …

Orange Man Bad: The Game
Life is Strange 2 as seen from the Right

5,241 words

Life is Strange 2 is arguably the most topical video game to deal with Trump’s presidency, though his name is not even mentioned. Naturally it’s staunchly anti-American and anti-white in its messaging, starring Mexican-Americans fleeing racist white police officers and citizens, complete with references to “the wall” and ICE. Bizarrely, this propaganda piece – a dumbed-down point-and-click adventure game – Read more …

Orwell on Politics & the English Language

orwell1,420 words

George Orwell’s classic essay “Politics and the English Language” ostensibly teaches us how to write well. More importantly, however, it teaches us how to think well before we write. According to Orwell, slovenly thought leads to slovenly writing as much as slovenly writing leads back to slovenly thought. In this essay, Orwell derides the politics of his day as being imbued with conformity of expression and the distancing of this expression from Truth. Read more …

Subliminal Influences

2,924 words

TVTranslated by G. A. Malvicini

We have already had the occasion to point to the illusoriness of the claim that modern man, in general, has achieved an autonomy and self-consciousness he previously lacked. This illusion can in part be explained by the fact that attention today is primarily directed towards external conditions, to the disappearance of certain material limits to the freedom of the individual — Read more …

“Dirty Japs,” Part 2

us-anti-japanese-propaganda1,906 words

Part 2 of 2

None suffered more in war, none suffered more in “peace,” than German women and girls. Of all the war crimes committed by the Allies during World War Two, the massive rapes of helpless women and children were perhaps the most monstrous. Of course, an untold number of German women and children did not survive the violent, nonstop assaults. One million? Two million? Ten million? Since no one in power cared, no one was counting.  Read more …

Mein Kampf in Arabic

I find it astonishing that many of today’s younger White Nationalists have read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals but not Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. I do not wish to denigrate Alinsky’s book, which should be required reading for all political activists and organizers. But Hitler was a formidable political organizer as well, Read more …

William Joyce

hawhaw11,508 words

William Joyce, more infamously known to history as “Lord Haw Haw,” the epitome of a British Traitor, was hanged on the basis of a passport technicality on January 3, 1946. Like the name “Quisling” (see Ralph Hewin’s excellent biography Quisling: Prophet Without Honour) much nonsense persists about Joyce.  Read more …

Why Music?
A Look at Art & Propaganda

Anne Vallayer-Coster, "Attributes of Music," 1770

Anne Vallayer-Coster, “Attributes of Music,” 1770

2,860 words

Music can influence our emotions and the quality of our judgments.

Our emotions play a key role in how we reason. If we are emotionally out-of-whack, then we will not be able to reason as effectively. Music is the art form that is most able to dissuade us from thinking critically.

A Note on the Art of Political Conversion

Thomas Ernest Hulme, 1883–1917

3,338 words

Some day a wonderful book will be written on the art of persuasion, a new sophistic. One may suppose that psychology will ultimately become as complete a science as geometry and mechanics are now. It will be possible then to predict the effect of an argument on a man’s mind as surely as one can now predict the eclipse of the moon. On the basis of this developed science will be built an infallible set of rules for converting a man to any opinion you like.

Ministry of Illusion:
Film in the Third Reich

9,728 words

History is always written by the winning side. This was never more true than in the case of Nazi Germany. Everything we know about it, or everything we think we know, is filtered through layers of illusion and propaganda. But a few years ago I had a rare opportunity to get an unfiltered view of it.

On Saturday, January 14, 1995, I saw an announcement of a series of films from Nazi Germany, being shown at UCLA. Read more …

One More Reason to Admire North Korea

Hwang Jang Yop: Would you listen to this "dirty and silly guy talk nonsense"?

607 words

North Korea is the world’s last manufacturer of vintage Stalinist boilerplate, as this 2003 story about the recently deceased defector Hwang Jang Yop demonstrates so beautifully. I think that economic protectionists and historical preservationists need to put their heads together and develop a rationale for preserving this almost lost art of rhetoric. As they say in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, “This is really enough to make even a cat to laugh.” Read more …
