Progressive Dehumanization

The Belief in Political Progress Substitutes for Genuine Religious Belonging

Guernica (1937) by Pablo Picasso

Reminding people of death strengthens their belief in social and moral progress, especially when those people are not very religious.1 Hence, in our deconfessionalized time, a growing number of people has substituted genuine religion for a belief in progressive politics.

But history warns us. Decades after Karl Marx called religion “the opiate of the...

Were Germanic Tribes Multicultural?

How Some Historians Project Modern Themes Onto History

Furor Teutonicus (1899) by Paja Jovanović

In our time of political correctness, it hardly occurs anymore that one or the other historian happens to prove certain prejudices about our forefathers. Here and there, Christian Pantle succeeds in doing so in his otherwise very decent book about Die Varusschlacht (The Battle of the Teutoburg Forest): “For a long time, the physical superiority of the Northern...

Rules for Alt-Radicals

How to Destroy the Left By Using Their Own Tactics Against Them

Bull Subdued by Dogs (1638-1640) by Paul de Vos

In his book Rules for Radicals, Jewish activist Saul Alinsky wrote in 1971, “Organization for action will now and in the decade ahead center upon America’s white middle class. That is where the power is.”1 This line came from the same man who defined the American radical as “that unique person who […] genuinely and completely believes in mankind”....

The Purpose of Patriarchy

Patriarchy as a Response to Natural Disaster and Sudden Population Decline

The Flood by Paul Merwart (1855-1902)

In 1900, about 1.6 billion human beings lived on Earth. One hundred years later, the human species nearly quadrupled to 6.1 billion.1 Before the end of 2020, we may pass 8 billion, adding in a single generation’s time what had once taken us thousands of years to achieve. But human populations aren’t evenly distributed across the globe. Different geographies, climates and cultures have allowed...

The Road to Self-Rule

Man's Long Climb from Serfdom to Freedom

The Pharaoh's Daughters (1886) by Edwin Long

Since the day man awoke from the wilderness, he has been pondering the question of how to live in a society with others. What we call society today emerged over five thousand years ago in ancient Mesopotamia,1 the area located between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers in present-day Iraq.

But apart from rapid developments in science and technology, the basic...

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...

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...

America: A Prophecy

Can the United States Avoid World War III?

Washington Crossing the Delaware (1851) by Emanuel Leutze

“Fiery the Angels rose, and as they rose deep thunder roll’d Around their shores, indignant burning with the fires of Orc” — William Blake

No civilization lasts forever. The Etruscan civilization vanished. The Roman Empire collapsed. The Ancient Egyptians disappeared. But if no civilization lasts forever, in the...
