In the distant and ancient era we now call the “mid-2000s,” there arose a phenomenon we now call New Atheism. New Atheism was militant; its adherents not only rejected religion, but actively sought to expurgate it from society, usually by haranguing the religious online. The idea was for humanity to reject all irrationality, delusion, and superstition and bring about an era of enlightenment and progress through reason and evidence. (more…)
Each year, Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance names a “White Renegade of the Year,” a tradition begun by Wilmot Robertson’s Instauration. The white renegade of the year is someone who could have used his position to help whites but instead chose to do the opposite. In the same spirit, Counter-Currents is inaugurating a “Non-White Ally of the Year” series, to recognize non-whites who have used their position to help whites.
In 2022, Kanye West — whose popularity and reach came as quite shock to me — received enormous coverage for wearing a White Lives Matter t-shirt. (more…)
There’s a reason why Agatha Christie is the world’s best-selling author. Her whodunnits are cleverly crafted, well-written, and highly entertaining. I also find them wholesomely Eurocentric, which is problematic these days.
Death on the Nile (1937) is one of her best novels. A shot rings out onboard a luxurious Nile steamer. It is clearly a case of foul play. But the two prime suspects have airtight alibis. Moreover, practically everybody else on the ship had means, motive, and opportunity to do the deed. Even Hercule Poirot’s famous gray cells are baffled . . . for a time. (more…)
Todd Field’s Tár is the story of the rise — or perhaps I should say “social climb” — and fall of Lydia Tár, a pioneering ethnomusicologist, conductor, and the first female Music Director of the Berlin Philharmonic, who is brilliantly played by Cate Blanchett. Shot on location in New York and Berlin, Tár very effectively conjures up the world of contemporary classical music, from the concert halls and conservatories to the journalistic latrine flies.

In Defense of German Colonialism: And How Its Critics Empowered Nazis, Communists, and the Enemies of the West
Washington, DC: Regnery Gateway, 2022
Bruce Gilley is a professor who was heavily criticized by a Maoist mob after he wrote an article entitled “The Case for Colonialism.” In his latest book, he takes a look at the much maligned German colonial empire, which stretched from Africa to Asia and even into the South Pacific until the the end of the First World War.

This White Boy Summer was blessed by a temporary return to the tradition of great movies with the release of Top Gun: Maverick. In an otherwise culturally drab era, Maverick is well named, as it is itself a maverick that bucks current trends. We find in this revival of the Top Gun franchise not another uninspired Hollywood cash grab, but a revival of our race’s traditionalism and Faustian spirit. Additionally, Maverick accidentally ends up revealing much about where the United States military is headed. (more…)
Christianity is a Vast Reservoir of Potential White Allies
In his Counter Currents article from May 20, 2022, “What Christian Nationalism Looks Like in Current-Year America,” Robert Hampton casts a critical eye on Christian nationalism. His thesis:
[Identitarians] think [Christian nationalism is] an ideology that can easily be racialized and used to defend white people . . .
In reality, Christian nationalism is an evangelical, multiracial, philo-Semitic circus that repulses young middle-class people. (more…)
Whoa Nellie! Stop for a moment. Ask yourself three questions about this photo I recently encountered.
Where did I see it? (more…)
One of the more regrettable things about dissident circles is the infighting — especially when a particularly bold non-dissident wades into dissident waters without realizing it. Typically, such a person will bring their more mainstream values along with them and inadvertently cause a minor burst of havoc as worlds collide. A recent example occurred when Joe “America’s Sherriff” Arpaio spoke at Nick Fuentes’ recent America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC). (more…)
The following is an interview with Rodrigo Ballester, Director of the Centre for European Studies at the Mathias Corvinus Collegium in Hungary, which is an institution that has established close ties with Viktor Orbán’s government in recent years.
