Why Organizations Are Important

Across the West, people are suspecting that institutions are corrupt, which has led to a lack of faith in not just our civilization but our own personal futures, as polls indicate: After 17 years of polling, the Edelman marketing firm found that trust in four institutions – government, business, media, and nongovernmental organizations – took […]

Eric Holder Has a Point: Congressman Lewis and Scourge of Illegitimacy

Let’s just skip the hagiography here and cut to the sordid chase. Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), Civil Rights Era Dominus et Deus, refuses to consider any president who doesn’t share both his politics and pigmentation as legitimate. That is certainly the Good Congressman’s right. There is no anti-rectal orifice statue in the current United States […]

Black America Is Still Baffled By White Shift In Racial Attitudes

Over at Garvey’s Ghost, as always an insightful commentary into the possibility of the return of black slavery: This is the levels to which so called black leadership such as John Lewis have sunk to. They actually peddle the belief that slavery is just around the corner. Never mind that the Trans-Atlantic slave trade could […]

We Are Not Equal

We Are Not Equal

In the modern lexicon, we are expected to think of each other as equals, meaning that we are all equally important. In reality, however, very few people do anything more than go through the motions, and so we know that most people are not really all that important. In addition, our abilities vary in the […]

Revealing The Left: How Richard Spencer Won Fistgate

Donald Trump was inaugurated, and the lügenpresse alternated between claiming that the turnout was low and talking about how exciting the rioting was. But in reality, the Left revealed itself, and what the world saw has reflected poorly on the Left. For starters, the Left managed to achieve nothing but vandalism and assault. This alone […]

A Middle Path For The Alt Right

A Middle Path For The Alt Right

Perhaps the doctrine from Buddhism that is most useful on a daily basis can be found in the idea of the middle path, which also possesses counterparts in Greco-Roman ideals of balance, golden means and natural orders and hierarchies. The essence of the middle path doctrine is that in every situation, people gravitate toward extremes, […]

Donald J. Trump Becomes The 45th President Of The United States

Official White House live cam here: As far as the usual profound “out with the old, in with the new” commentary that you expect from websites today — and remember, consumer expectation defines the product — there is only this to say: the election of Donald J. Trump was a strong rebuke to Leftism and […]

Stepping Out of Simulation

Stepping Out of Simulation

The newly built shoddy townhouses start from the low 500s, with convenient public transport to a soul killing office job so you only spend 45 minutes commuting each way. You watch passengers hide their faces in smart phones, a nerdy device named by marketers to flatter people for disconnecting from nature and fearing the intimacy […]

Why Nationalists Should Want A Stable Russia

by Arthur Conrad There has been a long standing warm relationship between a large portion of the alt right and the Russian government headed by president Vladimir Putin. This sentiment has been undoubtedly fueled by what the alt right perceives as more traditional and conservative Russian policies and its staunch opposition to neoconservative wars driven […]

Individualism Spotted In The Wild

Individualism Spotted In The Wild

Read David Brooks columns is an exercise in coin-flipping because he is either mostly really on and totally insightful, or completely off-base in an educated, half-bottle-of-wine sort of way that is both entertaining and misleading: The early Christians seem to have worshiped the way David did, with ecstatic dancing, communal joy and what Emile Durkheim […]
