For a while now, I’ve found that I cannot bring myself to enjoy new films, new TV shows, and other new media, not only due to the active war on whiteness waged therein. I expected Netflix’s Barbarians to be no different, but people were talking it up and I was having trouble sleeping, so I thought, what the hell. I wasn’t quite prepared for what I saw. This may be the first series that I have, as the kids would say, binge-watched. (more…)
Lipton Matthews has advised Republican politicians to stop pandering to black people. Of course, he’s correct. Any Republican politician who wants to win elections would be well served by reading Matthews’ recent Counter-Currents article. His argument boils down to white Republicans failing to consider the “collectivistic mentality of black people” (more…)
Grandpa pissed his pants again,
He don’t give a damn.
Brother Billy has both guns drawn,
He ain’t been right since Viet Nam.
I’m going down to the Dewdrop Inn
See if I can’t drink enough.
There ain’t much to country livin’
Sweat, piss, jizz, and blood.
— Warren Zevon, “Play It All Night Long” (more…)
It’s always interesting when I find someone who shares a clean sweep of my politics but for largely different reasons. Such a person seems completely in line with my outlook, but really isn’t. Although in Tim Pool’s case, I’ll bet that he is and just doesn’t realize it yet.
For the past several months Tim Pool has been banging the Trump drum. (more…)
The Birds Or: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Coronavirus (But Were Afraid to Ask Hitchcock & Heidegger), Part Seven
With the gulls now retreating, Mitch and Melanie leave the Tides restaurant and make their way up the hill to Annie’s house to retrieve Cathy. All is deathly quiet. As they approach the schoolhouse, they see that the crows are back and perched all over. “Look, the crows again!” Melanie says breathlessly. (more…)
If there is one universal truth about humanity, it’s that we are, by nature, tribalistic. We identify with our tribe, whatever that tribe may be. In a monoracial society, tribalist loyalties can form around clans, nations, religions, classes, or even actual tribes, as is the case in many places in Africa. In multiracial societies, however, everything boils down to race. (more…)
Hello. Hi, yes you! Yep, I’m speaking directly to you, fine sir or ma’am, the curious person that you are, who has come across Counter-Currents Publishing, or perhaps you were linked to this article in your search for information on “White Nationalism.” Welcome, you’ve come to the right place. (more…)
Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past five years, you’ve probably heard about the “dangerous” return of tribalism.
Before 2015 (or before Obama, depending on the source), Americans didn’t put themselves in tribes. They only saw red, white and blue. Everyone was judged as an individual. Civility and decency reigned supreme. Race relations and gender relations were all just fine. Americans were one nation, under God and indivisible. (more…)
The Virtue of Nationalism

“There were many whose hearts told them that they should begin to tell the secret runes.” Thus begins an ancient manuscript written in Old Saxon. It may surprise the reader to learn that these are, in fact, the opening lines of the Christian Gospel in the version known as the Heliand, produced for the Saxons in the early ninth century, after their conquest by Charlemagne.

Sub-National & Trans-National Identity as a Response to the Loss of Nation-Statehood
For the most part, Western nations are over. There will only be the diaspora, or there will be nothing at all. We are faced with the choice of being absorbed into a materialistic, multicultural mess, or becoming who we are, that is to say, exiles of a defunct world.
Donald Thoresen recently wrote a criticism of the White Sharia meme, wherein he alleged that the proponents of the meme may perhaps be suffering from “self-hatred . . . and the internalization of white subservience.” As one of the genuine originators of the meme – which was first promulgated on my podcast, The War Room, in late 2016 – I assure you: this is simply not the case.
In his piece, Thoresen wonders why anyone on the Alt Right would be “attracted to the brutality of the Islamic world” (more…)
The De-Nationalization of the Global European Diaspora
When the Alt Right speaks about a rise in “white identity politics” or increasing racial tensions, they are observing phenomena which could lead to nationalist politics and the reorientation of Western society towards ethnocentrism and cultural preservation. Conversely, they may also be observing the dying gasps of an older model of existence for Western peoples. (more…)

Uno de los argumentos frecuentemente usados por los nacionalistas blancos, defensores blancos, y otros miembros de la comunidad de la derecha alternativa es que el tribalismo es natural. Por tribalismo me refiero simplemente a la preferencia que tienen las personas a rodearse y asociarse con otras como ellas. (more…)
Becoming a Barbarian
Milwaukie, Or.: Dissonant Hum, 2016
Jack Donovan has finally released the sequel to The Way of Men. Donovan suggests that one should read The Way of Men prior to reading Becoming a Barbarian. In The Way of Men, Donovan argues that the “gang” is the way of men. (more…)

One of the arguments frequently made by white nationalists, white advocates, and other members of the alt-right community is that tribalism is natural. By tribalism I simply mean the preference that people have to be around and associate with others like them. Once upon a time, this might have meant that the French, by and large, preferred to be among other Frenchmen, the Dutch among the Dutch, Poles among Poles, etc.
The Fight for the Alt-Right:
The Rising Tide of Ideological Autism Against Big Tent-Supremacy
The growth of what is termed the alt-right in recent months has lead to a growth of criticism and some debate over its meaning and scope. (We’re also on Wikipedia now). The “Alternative Right” is a 2010s political label with history I am sure most people reading this are familiar with, and if not it is beside the point. What I aim to discuss here is not so much alt-right history (more…)

Ernst Jünger’s The Forest Passage
The Forest Passage
Translated by Thomas Friese
New York: Telos Press, 2013
We all live in deserts.
Urban deserts. Suburban deserts. Even in rural areas it is difficult to escape the commercially refined silicates of mechanized and meaningless modernity that blow over and bury the fossilized remains of dead gods and old ways. (more…)

Ebenso ist die Südspitze auch die Heimat vieler Europäer. Obwohl Chile mehrheitlich nicht-weiß (mestizisch) ist, sind Argentinien und Uruguay vor allem europäisch, insbesondere spanisch geprägt. (more…)
