After the Fall, a European Empire?

Recap of the book ‘The Decline’ by Professor David Engels

The Fall of Icarus (1635-1637) by Jacob Peter Gowy

Within twenty to thirty years, civil wars are going to break out throughout Europe, comparable to the wars Spartacus waged against Rome before the collapse of its republic. That’s what professor David Engels of Brussels’s Free University predicts in an (as usual) underexposed book Le Déclin (The Decline) that was also translated into German as...

Reversing White Decline

Understanding the Dangers of Diversity and Immigration

Freyja Seeking her Husband (1852) by Nils Blommér

When mass immigration makes a society more ethnically diverse, social order increasingly comes to rely on abstract ideals and economic narratives, rather than biological and emotional ties. Eventually, multiculturalism cuts deep wounds in a people’s sense of cohesion, replacing it with mutual suspicion. The ideals of e pluribus unum—creating a melting pot of peoples—only succeeds with fairly homogeneous peoples willing to assimilate, such as the European immigrants...

Make Boys Men Again

Western Civilization's Rite of Passage

Lion Hunt (1861) by Eugène Delacroix

President Trump’s election confronted mainstream journalists with something they had never seen before: a male role model. But the damage eight years of Obama’s feminism has done to young male minds may take decades to unwind. Unlike our European forefathers who struck fear in primitive people’s hearts, today’s frightened white twenty-somethings call themselves ‘gender-fluid hipsters’ or ‘third-wave feminists’, because what they really lack is a pair of full-grown balls. If...

Solving the Riddle of Happiness

In This Article I Tell You What Happiness Is and How to Get It

Le bonheur de vivre (1905) by Henri Matisse

No one should have to earn the right to be happy. No one ought to go through Kafkaesque lengths to achieve happiness either. Despite the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness granted by the U.S. Declaration of Independence, happiness probably isn’t something you’ll need to pursue at all, as if the pursuit itself were a substitute for some mythical, yet unattainable ideal.

In fact, I believe happiness...

Millennials’ Search for Meaning

A civilization’s main export product is its constituents’ behavior, especially abroad. The West, judging by the millennial generation’s monomaniac drive to party, scouring the world’s pristine island beaches and trashing them in raves of binge drinking and electronic music, suffers more than a PR problem, but an existential crisis.

While their grandfathers, and great-grandfathers, unflinchingly stormed the beaches of Normandy...

Globalized Brain Drain

By Centralizing Human Capital in the Hands of Globalists, Mass Migration Contributes to Worldwide Inequality

The Israelites Leaving Egypt (1830) by David Roberts

We all worry about our financial inequality relative to our peers, but do we understand its causes? Since the Second World War, modern mass migration has relocated millions of skilled individuals. But migration does not necessarily distribute skilled people evenly across the globe. In fact, it achieves the opposite. By centralizing both the world’s most educatable minds and its lowest cost laborers into the hands of Western globalists, multinational corporations have greatly benefited from globalism. At...

Who Interfered in Manning’s Gender?

Some Assumptions Are So Painful Society Works to Hide Them

When journalist for The Intercept Glenn Greenwald referred to Charles Manning as a ‘she’ on Twitter, I commented that Manning is still a ‘he’. It provoked Greenwald to respond by classifying yours truly as a sort of Untermensch undeserving of participating in public debate,

“It takes a very warped sickness to want to interfere in and dictate other people

Informedness Beats Intellect All of the Time

In Western, East Asian and many other societies, we tell our children they need an education, because that’s the way to get ahead life, however arbitrary “getting head” (of what?) may be. This cultural instruction has led to an over-appreciation of academic intellect, i.e. the kind of intellect arrived at through rote learning. We’ve mistakenly equated knowledge with intelligence, cleverness with competence and intellect with informedness.

Imagine two...

Did the American People Elect a Fascist?

If you repeat a lie often enough, people will come to believe it. At least, that’s what Third Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels said. Thus, for almost a year, every day Western radio, newspaper and television repeated that Donald Trump was a fascist. They convinced nearly everyone, but the media hadn’t taken into account that their accusation in fact made Trump seem more appealing. Women voted Trump, because they believed he was a strongman who could protect them....

The Overlooked Reason Why Trump Won the Election

Building an Alliance

Build that wall

When Donald Trump won the 2016 US election, media pundits scrambled to find an explanation. In their usual hurry, journalists from left to right blamed Trump’s election on uneducated white voters, supposedly fueled by a rising American populism. 

Conveniently blindsided, the media...
