“You Are the All-Singing, All-Dancing Crap of the World” Fight Club as Holy Writ

11,660 words 1. I am Jack’s Most Devoted Space Monkey I have hesitated to write an essay on Fight Club for some time, as it would mean breaking the first two rules of Fight Club. But I can no longer remain silent. And I’ve got a lot to say. So brew yourself a big pot of coffee and spend an hour with me. I promise I’ll make it worth your time. Fight Club has now displaced Network (1977) as my favorite film. It’s not because Fight Club is a better piece of cinema, or “the greatest film of all time.” …

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Meme

We owe a great debt of gratitude to J. R. R. Tolkien, who embodied the medieval bardic tradition, and penned his epic tale in rebuke of mechanized modernity. I doubt even Tolkien could have predicted that some fifty years later, his story would look more like prophecy than fable. Then again, Tolkien probably sensed Europe had entered its twilight. The Great European Civil War of the twentieth century, which Tolkien fought in during its first phase, impressed upon him that modernity, with its unrelenting industry (capitalism) and hi-tech weaponry, was destroying the West. He longed for a return to the …

Rogue One: Whites at War with Ourselves

Cinematic trailers for the next movies are often more revealing than the movie itself for the moral universe of Hollywood. Before the opening spaceship shot of Rogue One, we were treated to a jump-cut sequence of multiracial families and half Negroid kids yelling cheerfully in suburban houses, followed up by a mixed-race man waving a book and repeating “Love, love, love, love, love!” at the top of his lungs in complete tearful hysterics. Of course, it was a Google advert. Advertising what? Google. Google is Love, Google is Life.

Tolerance Is Weakness

I can describe the current state of the Western World in a few words. None of these words are positive. But with the election of Donald Trump and Brexit, the Western World is changing. We just need to help push this positive change along. We need to help remove false virtues that are shoved down our throats and implanted into our brains. One of these ideas is that of showing ‘tolerance.’

Anomie, Anime, and the Alt-Right

This article will hit levels of Vivaldian neo-irony that shouldn’t even be possible. The lines between sincerity and satire will blur. Description and prescription will become unintelligible. Nevertheless, I do believe it to be an important phenomenon, that there is a link between anime and the Alt-Right, tied to the social phenomenon of anomie. It is a persistent meme, one that predates and will outlive anime girls in Trump hats. There is a founder effect that some of the Alt-Right will never completely escape from, because it springs from the same alienation as the rest of the movement.

Restorationists

No one knows what conservatives conserve anymore. The average person thinks that conservatives preserve the current social order, which is far from true for anyone who has a conservative outlook; to such a person, we live in a fallen time and what is required is an undoing of the radical changes that have occurred, knowing that such changes will appear “radical” or “extreme” solely because we are so far off the path.

Fiddler On The Roof: A Very Jewish Movie

I recently stumbled across ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ and decided to watch it, I was aware that there was a particularly Jewish musical by that name but I’d always avoided it because I dislike musicals. Today, however, an entirely Jewish musical set in Russia shortly before the Russian Revolution has much to offer to the dissident Nationalist mind. The history of the Jews in Russia, the ‘Pale of the Settlement’, the animosity toward the Russian aristocracy and the rise of revolutionary Marxism, is a vast area of exploration and a post such as this could easily spiral out of control, …

The (((Usual Suspects)))

One of the most common euphemisms used to describe Jewish people is ”The Usual Suspects” and the Jews themselves seem to know it and understand it as an ”Anti-Semitic trope”. The Usual Suspects is also a very well made 1995 crime thriller directed by gay Jew, Bryan Singer.  The most famous character in The Usual Suspects is ”Keyser Söze” whose identity is shrouded in mystery, Soze himself is seemingly omnipotent, a master manipulator and source of dread for all who cross his path.

Race in The Last of the Mohicans & its Major Motion Picture Adaptions

James Fenimore Cooper’s classic novel The Last of the Mohicans has been adapted to film or television many times, most notably by director Michael Mann in 1992. Mr. Mann’s version of the story was based more on the 1936 film (written by Philip Dunne and directed by George Seitz) than on the original novel. The reason for this is murky, and the development of Dunne’s screenplay even murkier. However, plotting how the story has evolved from landmark American literature to major motion picture is extremely instructive and enlightening with regard to popular attitudes towards the white race. And it isn’t …

America’s Consensus Pronounced Dead

1963. Black pastor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivers his “I Have a Dream” speech, famously proclaiming that he wants a country where people “will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” 1964. The Civil Rights Act clears the Senate by 73–27 and is signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson, a White Democrat from Texas. Almost every form of discrimination “on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin” is banned in most areas of public and commercial American life.

Rice Farming and Gene-culture Co-evolution

Rice paddies, China, circa 1917-1923 (source). To grow rice, you must cooperate with neighbors for irrigation and labor. Today, even with the shift to a post-agricultural society, Chinese from rice-farming areas display less individualism and more interdependence than Chinese from wheat-farming areas. Is this evidence of gene-culture co-evolution?

The NRA and the Death of the Elite Media

Prof. Brian Patrick introduces and summarizes his years of research into media bias against the National Rifle Association, and NRA’s success in spite of this opposition, and describes what this tells us about the changing world of alternative media and its influence on social movements. He also discusses the trials and tribulations he has faced in being a pro-gun rights scholar in the typically very anti-gun world of academia.

Will the West Survive the Century?

“Nativism … xenophobia or worse” is behind the triumph of Brexit and the support for Donald Trump, railed President Barack Obama in Ottawa. Obama believes that resistance to transformational change in the character and identity of countries of the West, from immigration, can only be the product of sick minds or sick hearts.
