This is part of our continuing series of accounts by readers of how they shed the illusions of liberalism and became race realists. First published in 2015 on Counter-Currents, this essay is the introduction to Gregory Hood’s book, Waking Up From the American Dream. I always felt cheated. It wasn’t because I lacked for anything.... Read More
Joseph Ford Cotto, Runaway Masters: A True Story of Slavery, Freedom, Triumph and Tragedy Beyond 1619 and 1776, 2021, 193 pp., $9.99 (softcover) The struggle for power is eternal, but alliances are not. Tribes, nations, and races rise and fall, and there is no permanent villain or hero. Sometimes, there’s neither right nor wrong, but... Read More
Syracuse University professor Jenn M. Jackson had a curious take on the September 11 attacks. Among other statements, she said she was “disturbed by how many white pundits and correspondents talk about it.” She has since hidden her posts, but the internet is forever. I agree that the systems many white Americans fight to protect... Read More

On Wednesday, the Commonwealth of Virginia took down and then sawed to pieces Robert E. Lee’s 21-foot bronze equestrian statue in the former Confederate capital of Richmond. On paper, this was illegal. In 1889, the General Assembly guaranteed that the state would “hold the said [Lee Monument] perpetually sacred to the monumental purpose to which... Read More
I will save the celebrations of the removal of Robert E. Lee’s statue in Richmond for another article. This is just the standard contempt for whites that circulates on Twitter. An actress: A few years ago, I read an obscure book called Men, Art, War. In one story, after a revolution against a horrible system,... Read More
Gregory Hood and Henry Wolff discuss the enduring importance of Italian philosopher and esotericist Julius Evola. Listen

A nation is made of race, ethnicity, culture, and identity. Ernst Renan called it a “daily plebiscite.” He said a nation needs a “common will in the present,” and the wish to perform great deeds in the future. Identity is a feeling, but feelings, emotions, personalities and beliefs come from the blood. We don’t create... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the late Mel Bradford, Southern heritage, paleoconservatism, and the limits of political martyrdom. Listen
The federal government is about to spend about $3.5 trillion dollars on the Democrats’ budget proposal. Former president Donald Trump said the bill “destroys our Borders and the rule of law by granting dangerous amnesty that will flood America’s beautiful cities.” The Democrats admit the bill will give “lawful permanent status for qualified immigrants” —...

Now that David French is gone, Jay Nordlinger may be the worst writer at National Review. One can always count on him to defend the most useless points of view. He is true to form about Hungarian President Viktor Orban and the future of the American Right. Mr. Nordlinger frets that President Orban’s national-conservative approach... Read More
People all over the world enslaved each other until whites stopped them. The British Empire took the leading role, abolishing slavery throughout its vast territories in the Slavery Abolition Act, which became effective on August 1, 1834. This year, Canada joined the ranks of former British possessions that celebrate “Emancipation Day” on August 1. It... Read More

Five years ago, I wrote a book called Waking Up From The American Dream. One of my assumptions was that America was uniquely destructive because the egalitarian virus was implicit in its founding. America wasn’t really a “proposition nation”; no nation is. However, it was at least plausible to believe that it was, that it... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts address fan-suggested topics. The two talk about colonialism, 1984, A Brave New World, black nationalism, and much more. Listen
German governments have used two strategies to crush dissent in the last century. The Third Reich used Gleichschaltung, or “coordination,” with the state pushing public and private organizations into line with National Socialism. Communist East Germany used Zersetzung, “decomposition,” with its Stasi secret police wrecking the personal lives, careers, and reputations of dissidents. White advocates... Read More

History doesn’t change to fit our wishes. We wish whites hadn’t imported blacks as slaves and had not changed immigration policy in 1965. However, in a multiracial society, history often isn’t about facts. It’s a weapon. A story about the past justifies current policy. When history doesn’t provide a suitably horrific example, invent one. The... Read More
An embassy is a nation’s face to the world. An American embassy is American territory, the flag expresses sovereignty, and attacking an embassy is an act of war. So what are we to make of American embassies that fly Black Lives Matter flags? The BLM flag now represents the United States. It’s bizarre enough for... Read More
Jean Raspail wrote the most prophetic book of this century, The Camp of the Saints. It ends with the last remnant of the West about to be overrun. The book’s final words are: “The fall of Constantinople is a personal misfortune that happened to all of us only last week.” Tomorrow, May 29, that colossal... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Francis Fukuyama's The End of History and the Last Man and its many critics. Listen
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Paul Gottfried's enormous body of work. They cover his key insights about the leftist worldview, the managerial state, and American conservatism. Listen
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the work of the late James Burnham. Though largely forgotten by the conservative movement he helped create, Burnham’s analyses of power, class, and liberalism are invaluable. Listen
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Ayn Rand and her enormously popular books. They cover her influence on American conservatism, and even Leftism, and why that influence has largely been for the worse. Listen
For most people, “white nationalist,” like “racist,” is just a slur without any real meaning. But it does have a meaning. “White nationalism” is government concern for white interests. Ultimately, it would mean building a nation for whites. The reason we have different nations is because peoples are different and have different interests. Peoples share... Read More
The title of the late Jerome Tuccille’s book about libertarianism was called It Usually Begins with Ayn Rand. For conservatives, the same could be said of Rush Limbaugh. Neocon or paleo, white advocate or “movement conservative,” Christian or agnostic, capitalist or protectionist, it’s hard to find anyone on the Right who didn’t spend some time... Read More
This is the ninth in a series about the continuing disappearance of whites from American cities (see our earlier entries for Birmingham, Washington, D.C., New York City, Chicago, Richmond, Milwaukee, Baltimore, and Philadelphia). Many people still pretend that The Great Replacement is a myth or a conspiracy theory, but the graphs that accompany each article... Read More

History Has Begun is a very important but badly flawed book. Bruno Maçães, Portugal’s former foreign minister and now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, perfectly describes the myth of American civilization, arguing that America was founded on “the promise of fantasy.” America lets people live out compelling stories, something which is central to...

Until very recently, most Northern cities enjoyed overwhelming white majorities. Southern cities haven’t been so lucky because most blacks stayed in the region until the Great Migration. However, Richmond was a white-majority city until desegregation. Today, blacks and deracinated whites in the city are destroying monuments to Southern resistance, finally consolidating their cultural as well... Read More
W.E.B. Du Bois was one of America’s most important leftist intellectuals. The Souls of Black Folk and Dusk of Dawn: An Essay Toward an Autobiography of a Race Concept were the precursors to today’s racial politics. Black Reconstruction in America anticipated the contemporary doctrine that Reconstruction didn’t go far enough. (Eric Foner’s Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished... Read More

National Review is “defending America” in its latest issue. Unfortunately, its cowardice about race makes its defense a laughable failure. Editor Rich Lowry’s introduction tries to negotiate the terms of surrender. He is appalled to find that “we’ve gone from a debate about the status of Confederate statues to the toppling defacing, and removal of... Read More
Indianapolis is known as the “Crossroads of America.” It hosts the world’s largest one-day sporting event, the Indy 500. It was one of the great capitals of the Midwest, and as “Railroad City,” it was a hub that joined the continent. Its magnificent “Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument” is a neoclassical tribute to the common men... Read More

This is the second in a series about the continuing disappearance of whites from American cities (see the first, about Birmingham, Alabama, here). Many people still pretend that The Great Replacement is a myth or a conspiracy theory, but the graphs that accompany each article in this series prove them wrong. Every city has a... Read More
Adapted from recent remarks. George Washington, Pater Patriae, won American independence through a strategy that went against his own aggressive instincts. He avoided battles with superior British forces. Instead, he attacked isolated enemy forces (as he did at the Battle of Trenton), kept his army together, and always withdrew in good order following a defeat.... Read More
This review contains a few spoilers. If you’ve seen the trailer for 1917, you know the premise: Two British soldiers must slip through enemy lines to deliver an urgent message. If they fail, the Germans will “massacre” a British unit that includes the brother of one of the soldiers. I will not summarize the plot.... Read More
President Donald Trump recently threatened to bomb 52 sites that are “important to Iran & Iranian culture.” Defense Secretary Mark Esper demurred, saying American troops would “follow the laws of armed conflict.” The 1949 Geneva Convention Protocol, amended in 1977, says “any acts of hostility directed against the historic monuments, works of art or places...

This article is adapted from remarks delivered to a gathering of young nationalists. Recently, National Review’s Rich Lowry put out what he called “A Defining Statement of Modern Conservatism,” complete with a giant picture of Ronald Reagan. The idea that Ronald Reagan should be what’s inspiring today’s generation of conservatism is so out of touch... Read More
Return of the Strong Gods: Nationalism, Populism, and the Future of the West is typical of many conservative books. It analyzes the disease, but is afraid of the cure. Russell Ronald Reno III writes that the modern West created an anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-nationalist order in response to the world wars. Both the mainstream Right... Read More
A Russian friend once told me that just before the Soviet Union’s collapse, news articles would mostly maintain the party line but slip real information into the middle. To get the truth, you just ignored the conclusion. This method works well with Matthew Rose’s recent piece on Sam Francis, “The Outsider.” Mr. Rose does not... Read More
In Eric Kaufman’s Whiteshift: Populism, Immigration, and the Future of White Majorities, the author asks, “What happens if rural and red-state America is permanently frozen out of power when it considers itself the repository of authentic Americanism?” H.W. Brands’s book, Heirs of the Founders, provides an answer: national disintegration. Mr. Brand’s analysis of what led... Read More
This biography of Charles de Gaulle by Julian Jackson prompted both the conservative Federalist and the leftist New Statesman to run articles called “How Charles de Gaulle Made France Great Again.” The general supposedly reconciled the political tribes of Left and Right into a “certain idea of France.” In Conrad Black’s words, he “settled the...

One ruling class replacing another is revolution. One people replacing another is conquest. Usually, revolution or conquest creates a new state. Yet sometimes the state survives the destruction of its core population. I would call this “state conquest.” It happened in South Africa in 1994 and it could happen in the United States. In 1994,...

It keeps happening: “Conservatives” claim Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree them. King family members and historians rebut the claim. Conservatives continue to believe in fake history. Smart people end up despising conservatives, who clearly have no evidence to support their views. The moral authority of King is elevated because even political opponents pay tribute... Read More
Nelson Mandela is dead, and South Africa without “Madiba” will be much the same as it was before: a wreck of a country with slowly collapsing infrastructure, high crime, and the slow-motion genocide of Afrikaners. None of this much matters to the opinion makers of what used to be the West. For them, the true... Read More
Introduction If anyone should have seen it coming, it was the Afrikaners. The White Tribe of Africa watched neighboring countries fall one by one into the nightmare of black government, mass violence, and poverty. South Africans saw around them even in their own country the immutable nature of Africans. And yet, in 1992 the Afrikaners... Read More
There are very few whites today who publicly express a healthy racial consciousness and speak in the name of white interests. Some white advocates are therefore tempted to look to black nationalists for lessons in how to promote a racial cause. Blacks who promote racial identity and self-sufficiency both legitimize white racial advocacy and offer... Read More
