The Magazine

Who's In Charge Here?

During the Clinton presidency, it was joked that The New Republic was the “in-flight magazine of Air Force One.” While it had always been an influential outlet on the left, having published many of the godfathers of American progressivism like John Dewey, The New Republic reached its peak in influence in the 1990s. At that time it was considered the sober, policy-minded, pragmatic, center of leftist thought, just as Bill Clinton himself was seen. Both the magazine and the president did away with

American Homer: Kurt Sutter & Catholic Identity in Mid-Century America

Kurt Sutter is the creator of the popular television series Sons of Anarchy, about an outlaw motorcycle club in the fictional town of Charming, California, somewhere between Oakland and Stockton. Sutter also plays the character Otto, a member of the Sons. Otto is an older member, who went into Stockton State Prison to do a six-year sentence, committed crimes inside for the Club that added another 30, and ended up on death row. Via various gang warfare attacks within the prison walls he ends up b

Making a Travesty of the State

Last week in Canada, Bill C-16 received Royal assent. The bill amends the Canadian Human Rights Act to prohibit discrimination against "gender identity or expression"; and, more controversially, amends the infamous hate-speech provisions of the Criminal Code to criminalize speech critical of "gender identity or expression". Make no mistake: the following is no hand-wringing lament over the erosion of "muh free speech". I leave it to Libertarian deontologists to uncover, in the abstract formal

Angela Nagle's Wild Ride

What a time to be alive, that’s what I have to say. We live in plastic times, where the long ossified habits of our collective Social-Entity have begun to thaw, and for the first time in the memory of many, some kind of change at least seems possible. But we know all this already. I consider myself an accelerationist, but one who only holds out hope not for a better world when all’s said and done, but only for a decent book about what transpired. When I saw Angela Nagle’s new book Kill All Normi

Aristocratic Individualism In An Age of Populism

Democracy’s root meaning is from the Greek demos (people) and kratos (power). Democracy and liberalism are the decadent expressions of mass-orientated culture centered around the people, the middle of the bell curve, where nothing extraordinary or worthy of note is formed. People who merely exist and never go beyond their comfort zone and status quo, being thrown around by the forces of the universe. When power is flipped upside-down like this, there is inevitably chaos and degeneration, no one

Lothrop Stoddard on Nazi Feminism

Just about everyone equates National Socialism with social conservatism, not least of which contemporary sympathizers of National Socialism who regard it as the traditionalist philosophy par excellence, capable of invigorating the mind, body and soul of the great European race like no other. It is therefore worth bringing up some observations from Lothrop Stoddard, a figure I believe every racialist would regard as a trustworthy source. One of his lesser known works, Into the Darkness (1940), do

My Hometown Is Gone.

Hi! This is a blog post I threw together in response to the recent increase in refugee numbers by Trump’s State Department, in order to convey what it is like living in an Islamizing area. I gave a talk at a luncheon a few months ago that was basically relating my story of how my hometown has been Islamized by refugee resettlement. So it makes sense to do a blog post. I’m from the Utica, NY area. Utica is the city nicknamed by the UN “the city that loves refugees!” Soon every American city will

Kaite McHugh and the Cucking of Breitbart

Breitbart has, for at least the past few years, been viewed as the ultimate Right-Wing media boogeyman in the hive-mind of coastal Liberals. With the recent firing of Breitbart reporter Katie McHugh for what were transparently tame comments, any such understanding of Breitbart as a formidable Right-Wing Media outlet should be promptly dispensed with. The truth is that, with the firing of McHugh, they have sacrificed one of their last remaining interesting voices in exchange for "respectability."
