The Dissident Right overlaps with the environmental movement in an interesting place, and epidemiologist Shanna Swan tells us all about it in her recent book, Count Down. The subtitle to this popular science volume is a real mouthful: “How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race.”

Knut Hamsun’s 1917 classic Growth of the Soil seems to defy the fundamental conflicts found in most fiction. It is a mystifying novel. One can pigeonhole it as modern with its use of stream of consciousness, flashbacks, and other literary techniques. It’s also considered part of a literary movement called Norwegian New Realism, which was highly influential beyond Norway in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Most interesting for dissidents, the novel reflects the near mystical connection Man has with the soil, consecrated through hard work and family. (more…)

I’m one of those lonely people who red-pilled himself. It happened twice: Once in my early twenties and once in my early forties. And since a commenter on my previous article “The Tipping Point” asked for me to explain how that happened, I thought I’d share.
I became aware of the critical nature of race — vis-à-vis blacks and whites — in my early twenties after a few years of living on my own post-college. I can trace it back to the day I started paying my own taxes. (more…)

You can always tell an enemy by the way he’ll attack you in the name of peace. He’ll claim he supports freedom, but will try to restrict yours in the name of freedom. He’ll speak loudly of universal standards, but will apply them only in a restricted manner. . . against you. (more…)
Contemplating all the thorny dilemmas facing race-realist or white identitarian parents brings me back to the story of the Soviet youth Pavel Morozov (or Pavlik, as he was known). I say “story” because the boy and the hagiographic myth which surrounded him for over fifty years were two very different things.
Pavel Morozov was a thirteen-year-old peasant boy who, in 1932, reported his father to the Soviet political police (more…)
Everyone loves a good underdog story. It’s what Hollywood does well. Not to give Hollywood too much credit since I’ll posit that the underdog story is uniquely suited for cinema, regardless if it’s Hollywood or Bollywood or some independent genius shelling out the shekels behind the scenes. I suspect the reason can be boiled down to two words: “home cookin’.” With the right script and performance, filmmakers can get an audience to fall in love with a character despite his personality quirks and manifest flaws.

A few years ago I took my four-year-old son to a Santa Claus event being held at a local supermarket. They were offering snacks and goodies and craft activities as well as the opportunity to sit on the bearded man’s lap and tell him what you want to find under the tree that year. Of course, my son loved every moment of it. But he started to love it even more when one of his best friends from daycare showed up. This was a little Indian kid with whom he was inseparable at the time. And with him was his father who was all smiles and wanting to make chitchat with me. (more…)
Four Classic Rock Songs for the Dissident Right
Like a lot of people in Generation X, I grew up on rock music, especially classic rock. I still love the stuff. Despite this, I predict that most classic rock will prove increasingly irrelevant to the Dissident Right as we tilt our spears deeper into the twenty-first century. But isn’t this a little counter-intuitive? (more…)
