In a recent article at The Epoch Times, “Erasing, Misrepresenting Canada’s History Erodes Foundations of Society,” a group of well-meaning and harmless conservative historians are cited at length expressing concerns about the tearing down of statues, renaming of buildings and streets, and overemphasis on Canada’s “racist past” without an acknowledgement that this nation has been “constantly improving” away from its “racist past.” (more…)

Conservative Academics Endorse a Progressive History against Progressives Who Call Canada Racist
Lipton Matthews over at Taki’s Magazine is giving White Nationalists some advice, and I think we’d better sit up and listen. In his essay “Cultural Whiteness,” he tells us we should stop being White Nationalists and instead view whiteness as a “philosophy of progress.” In other words, we should push for a society that is “culturally white,” but racially not so much.

The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser
Only White Identity Can Save Western Civilization
Counter-Currents is trying to raise $150,000 this year. Thus far, we have received 660 donations for a total of $94,696.84.
In our last update, we announced a $5,000 matching grant, which was met with an outpouring of support that quickly used it up and carried us well beyond. I want to thank all of our donors, (more…)
Project 1619: When Will Conservatives Stop Begging Nonwhites to Love Western Civilization?
Andrew Roberts is a renowned conservative, Visiting Fellow at Stanford University, and Visiting Professor at King’s College London, who believes that everyone in the world can be educated to love the democratic values of Western civilization. If only blacks and immigrants were taught to appreciate the immense value of Greek (more…)
Conserving the white race – more specifically, the people who hail from Europe – should be the highest goal of conservatism, for without a strong white race, nothing else so-called conservatives want to conserve is even remotely possible.
Western civilization is synonymous with white civilization. The two are inextricably linked and inseparable. Grecian thought, Roman statecraft, German Idealism, English law – these pillars of humanity rest squarely on the shoulders of the European peoples. (more…)
The memes are in, boys. It has been decided that we’ll enjoy our thousand monthly NEETbucks and government-mandated Chinese waifus while playing Fortnite; in the meantime the world’s unpleasant tasks will be handled by robots. Sound nice? That’s what our new utopia will look like under the wise guidance of Chairman Andrew Yang.

Homosexuality not conducive to creativity
Norman rejected the faddish view that homosexuality is associated with the creative individual. He regarded homosexuality as “destructive” to the creative impulse, which is based on unisexuality. He stated that the male homosexual is dominated by a split of either all-male or all-female:
Australian Artists of the Right
Norman Lindsay, Part I
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879-1969) was the brother of Lionel Lindsay, recently profiled at Counter-Currents. Like his brother, Norman excelled in a variety of artistic media. While Lionel’s primary contribution to art theory and history was a slender but informative volume, Addled Art (1942, 1946), Norman was also a notable author of an impressive number of novels, as well as books on history and aesthetics.

The great monologist Jean Shepherd used to remark, “In four thousand years, no one will know that you ever existed.” This statement is shocking for modern man, who — while not believing in an immortal soul — is convinced that technological advances will soon grant immortality to his physical being. Mortality might come as a shock to deracinated modern man — who is never more than a few feet away from a hand sanitizer or a “safe zone” to protect him from the challenges of bacteria or differing opinions — yet this was not always the case.

Unshackling the Shekel:
or, How I Learned to Fight
In my previous essay, “Ditching the Black Pill: Or, How I Freed Myself from the Shekel,” I explored why nihilism isn’t a constructive strategy or mindset for the purposes of our movement. Nihilism, fatalism, and any other predeterministic philosophy runs counter to the European soul, and as such is a tool for our enemies to exploit. This essay will be exploring racial hygiene, with a specific emphasis placed upon what is healthy for our people and what is not. (more…)
The Left lies, it lies about everything, and it lies all the time. One of the most egregious lies of the Left is that, while negroes and mestizos are said to have their own racially-identifiable cultures, white people do not possess a uniquely white culture. The disingenuousness of this lie is exacerbated by the Left viewing negroes and mestizos as cultural monoliths while treating whites as a collection of disparate ethnic entities.
The Islamization of the Teaching of Western Civilization
In the United States today only two percent of colleges offer Western Civilization as a course requirement. I teach Western Civ in two parts, but they are not required, and I had to change the title to “Sociology of Western Civilization” for approval. (more…)
Karl Jaspers, l’Age Axial, et une Histoire Commune pour l’humanité
English original here
Du XIXe siècle jusqu’aux années 1960 et 1970, les livres de l’Histoire Mondiale reconnaissaient les divers accomplissements de toutes les civilisations dans le monde, mais la plupart des auteurs et des enseignants prenaient comme allant de soi le fait que les Européens méritaient plus d’attention en particulier au vu de leur influence incontestable (more…)
Oswald Spengler & the Faustian Soul of the West, Part 1
Part 1 of 2
If I had to choose one word to identify the uniqueness of the West it would be “Faustian.” This is the word Oswald Spengler used to designate the “soul” of the West. He believed that Western civilization was driven by an unusually dynamic and expansive psyche. The “prime-symbol” of this Faustian soul was “pure and limitless space.” This soul had a “tendency towards the infinite,” a tendency most acutely expressed in modern mathematics. (more…)
Karl Jaspers, the Axial Age, & a Common History for Humanity
French translation here
From the nineteenth century through the 1960s and ’70s, World History books did recognize the varying accomplishments of all civilizations in the world, but most authors and teachers took for granted the fact that Europeans deserved more attention particularly in view of their irrefutable influence on the rest of the world after their discovery of the Americas, development of modern science and global spread of modern technology.
The European New Right & its Animus against Western Civ
My knowledge of the European New Right (ENR) is very scarce, no more than a few short articles and three books: Guillaume Faye’s Why We Fight, Alexander Dugin’s Fourth Political Theory, and Pierre Krebs’ Fighting for the Essence, Western Ethnosuicide or European Renaissance? I found Faye’s metapolitical dictionary substantively insightful and Dugin’s dissection of liberalism penetrating.

“You are a white. The Imperial Wizard. Now, if you don’t think this is logic you can burn me on the fiery cross. This is the logic: You have the choice of spending fifteen years married to a woman, a black woman or a white woman. Fifteen years kissing and hugging and sleeping real close on hot nights. With a black, black woman or a white, white woman. (more…)
