Conservatism Pulling Away From Patriotism And Christianity

Conservatism inevitably finds itself in conflict with its only real competition, which is the public form of conservatism. The root of conservatism is anti-social; conservatives recognize that most human ideas are pretense and vaingloriousness, and instead point to time-honored methods of achieving the best results.

What Is The Trump / Brexit / LePen Wave Of “Populism”?

The Left uses the term “populism” to refer to political sentiments which arises outside the control of the Establishment.

Random Acts of Hopelessness

Recently I have been listening to indie music for a change of pace, and it strikes me that this genre provides perfect, lucid insight into the millennial white mindset. Indie music is as much a psychology as a specific style; indie musicians see themselves as mediocre despite their best efforts, and in a perpetual state […]

Cold, Ice Cold

Philosopher Nick Land talks about the transition that the West is currently experiencing as a shift from being nice to being more realistic. “Nice” is like bourgeois values: offend no one, befriend everyone, and always gesture vividly toward your acceptance of all people, behaviors and ideas.

What Went Wrong In The West During WWII?

Something went wrong in the West during WWII. Perhaps it was that after fighting “the war to end all wars,” people lost faith in the system but cashed in anyway.

Their latest efforts will fail like the previous ones. The most recent propaganda piece conjures up a Russian “plan” to […]

Bryan Caplan finds himself confused by the link between recognizing the importance of IQ and wanting most of humanity dead. He argues for acceptance of fact without rancor, but seems perplexed by the vitriol expressed (h/t Outside In): My fellow IQ realists are, on average, a scary bunch. People who vocally defend the power of […]

Diversity Violence Gets The Norming Treatment In Amerika

Diversity does not work because it cannot work. It is paradoxical to place groups with different goals together and insist they compromise, because this deprives all groups of their goals, and thus creates tension which will inevitably detonate in ethnic violence. This week, the exciting ethnic violence came to us from sunny Fresno where an […]

Is Antifa Receiving Funding From Organized Crime?

Over in the free speech Antifa discussion group, one user spotted something dubious in Antifa finances: https://blockchain.info/address/1HS6kXei4hBGPE7WTweqERvanZ1DYCSmNw Look through the donations. Some of these users forgot to use tumblers and have large-capital streams coming through that look like money laundering. This fits with what we know of Antifa: people are being paid fairly generous sums […]
