PCU: HUMAN NATURE IS NO EXCUSE

                                                     
Sally Mason, President of the University of Iowa


Now, it's happened again, on a different campus, albeit in a far more bizarre form:

ALT-RIGHT PODCAST 9: UKRAINIAN GAMES



Andy and Colin are joined by Traditionalist Youth Network's Matt Parrott to trawl through the choppy waters of global geopolitics in the wake of the Ukraine's remarkable revolution, one that was chiefly driven by forces from the right.

Up for discussion are Alexander Dugin's views that the Ukrainian nationalists who played a leading part, are merely "nazis" in a "Quentin Tarantino style circus" playing a proxy role for the West. Also considered is the prospect of the Ukraine breaking up, Putin's mindset, and whether America and Russia play symbiotically opposite roles.

TRADITIONALISM IN ONE COUNTRY?



It's a real joke knowing a lot of history. Everything that happens seems like a massively bad pun on something else that happened years ago, and, when that happens, you can't help groaning as you laugh – or vice versa.

Take the situation in Russia. There, in recent years, we have witnessed encouraging signs of traditionalist revival, such as the rise of the Russian Orthodox Church and the assertion of traditionalist values. This has included a clamp down on the rainbow-coloured tsunami of homosexualism that has defiled our planet in recent years, and a rise in family values that has seen the birth rate rise to a level that might one day make Russia less dependent on the hordes of non-White immigrants who have flooded into the country. To top it all the Russians have even brought back the Cossacks with whips to refight the 'Battle of Balaclava'! If this keeps going, it may be only a matter of time before the Tsar is brought back.

SCIENCE DEFEATS LIBERALISM


by Brett Stevens


"If a fool would persist in his folly, he would become wise," wrote William Blake in his Proverbs of Hell.

This proverb is widely misinterpreted as meaning that we can make a wise man out of a fool. That is not so; what it means is that a fool who tries new versions of the same foolish thing will eventually discover the truth of the thing he's undertaking. It's another way of saying we learn by error.

In 1789, with the French Revolution, the West formalized its enlightenment ideal: the human form comes before nature and God, and is the ultimate ideal.

UKRAINE'S STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE


Youtube channel The Caspian Report takes a look at the geopolitical and strategic factors that have influenced events in the Ukraine, and which will continue to influence them. Of particular importance is the way that individual EU states – Poland for example – attempt to use the collective power and influence of the EU to grind their own national axes.



DON'T KIEV UP WITHOUT A FIGHT

Tower of Babel II: Ukraine getting in on the ground floor?

by Colin Liddell

Things in the Ukraine are moving at a fast rate. By this time next week, who knows where we'll be. This tremendous pace of events is only to be expected from a country that hasn't had a chance to have its own history, and which, in recent weeks, seems to have been going through every phase of history that it has missed out, on from medieval sieges and battles involving the Roman tetsudo formation, to the hippy protest camps of the 1960s.

One concern for those of us who oppose the Evil Empire of Western Unipolarity is that a victory for the pro-Western forces in the Ukraine will be a serious blow to Russia, a state that is increasingly the brightest hope for traditionalists and nationalists in the World. A defeat for Russia may even lead to other parts of Putin's empire getting up the courage to break away. If so, there is a fear that Russia will be cut down to size. As someone said, with Ukraine, Russia is an empire, but without it, it is merely a country.

On the surface there is much to be said for these fears, but underlying them there is a number of assumptions. Let’s deal with these one by one.

ROGER SCRUTON ON WAGNER'S PHILOSOPHY


Roger Scruton on "Philosophical Conversations" discusses Wagner's view of the erotic with the rather fetching Sarah-Jane Leslie. Unlike Plato and Kant, who saw the erotic as that which united us with the beasts, Wagner saw it as that which distinguishes us from them, a quintessential feeling that liberates us from power and offers us redemption and transcendence of the self.

PODCAST 8: SOCHI STUFF AS DREAMS ARE MADE ON

Sochi opening ceremony

Is sport "a continuation of politics by other means"? With the Winter Olympics in Sochi on everyone's mind and TV screen, Andy and Colin take a long look back at the history of the Olympic movement and sport in general, stopping along the way to discuss the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the boycotts of the Cold War period, Andy's attendance at the 1984 LA Games, and why there have been no terrorist attacks so far.

Does Sochi mark the start of a new Cold War, and how does the opening ceremony of these games compare with the London Summer Olympics two years ago?

A PUSSY WHIPPIN'


There has been an awful lot of buzz about the video out of Sochi, in which members of the odious, Soros-bankrolled band of willfully blasphemous, perpetually- PMSed-up, would-be performance artists known as "Pussy Riot" get ambushed by a cadre of Ivan-on-the-spot Cossack militia members, who proceed to go all Christian Grey on their feminist asses.

It's been a bit bewildering to witness the extremes of responses to this video. Some people insist that it must be a fake, a false flag cooked up by U.S. intelligence to demonize Putin's Russia. Yet if this were so, you'd think we would have heard something from the Kremlin by now, declaiming responsibility. Not to mention that a large number of people seem to feel positively about the Cossacks' behavior, leading one to wonder: What if they launched a false flag, and it backfired?

Or conversely, could this butt-whuppin' have all along been a staged event by that master playa Putin? Might those Russkies have known all along that many Westerners want nothing more than to see Pussy Riot get royally stomped? Could this in fact be a clever ploy to win the affection of disaffected conservatives in the Occident?

What do y'all think?

HERE COME DE JUDGE!

                                                                             
by  Andy Nowicki

The original draft of a district court judge's brief declaring a ban on gay marriage "unconstitutional" in the state of Virginia contains a gaffe that is drawing hoots, hollers, sneers, and derisive guffaws from some quarters, and embarrassed silence from elsewhere.


STIHIE: BILLY RAY GOES RAP

The latest exhibit in our ongoing series, STIHIE (So This Is How It Ends):

Since no white recording artist can truly respect himself until he shows that he's down with black people, it makes perfect sense that Billy Ray Cyrus would re-record his 1992  country hit "Achy Breaky Heart" as a hip-hop song/video experience, with some rapper named Buck 22 in tow.

It's like a minstrel show in reverse! Dig it, if you dare:

INTO THE GRIM DARKNESS...

"It is the 41st Millennium. For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor of Mankind has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of mankind by the will of the gods and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the vast Imperium of Man for whom a thousand souls are sacrificed every day so that he may never truly die. Yet even in his deathless state, the Emperor continues his eternal vigilance. Mighty battlefleets cross the daemon-infested miasma of the Warp, the only route between distant stars, their way lit by the Astronomican, the psychic manifestation of the Emperor's will. Vast armies give battle in His name on uncounted worlds. Greatest amongst his soldiers are the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, bio-engineered super-warriors. Their comrades in arms are legion: the Imperial Guard and countless planetary defence forces, the ever-vigilant Inquisition and the tech-priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus to name only a few. But for all their multitudes, they are barely enough to hold off the ever-present threat to humanity from aliens, heretics, mutants – and far, far worse. To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be relearned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods."
~The Official Introduction to Warhammer 40,000

Dystopia incites a person to fight. Dystopia incites a person to face the ever-present possibility of death. Dystopia incites pessimism, but it also incites feelings of courage and martial virtues. In other words, Dystopia is Cryptofascist. Judge Dredd, Frank Herbert’s Dune, Niven and Pournelle's The Mote in God's Eye, and of course, George Orwell’s 1984 are all good examples of dystopian fictions, and they can be said to have Fascist, or at least, anti-modern themes. The following article will deal with one of the most popular Dystopian fictions in popular culture, and that is Warhammer 40,000.

MARK SHEA GETS PUNK'D!

Mark Shea, through a glass darkly

In recent months, the term "Dark Enlightenment" has, for some reason, become the go-to phrase among mainstream types attempting to make some sense of the ragtag coalition of defiant anti-establishment types who comprise our movement. What's notable, of course, is that mainstream types are deigning to notice us at all. Even if their appraisals tend to be sneering, sniggering, and dismissive, they nevertheless for some reason feel the need to acknowledge our undeniable presence in a manner that they never have before.

One of the more sanctimonious obsessors over the DE lately is the eternally odious neo-Catholic blogger Mark Shea. Shea's classic MO is to rant against his enemies, before banning them from defending themselves in his comment boxes, only permitting his inexplicably numerous minions to heap on further abuse. (Full disclosure: one of our editors' scaps with Marky Mark and his Fun Bunch go way back: for details, take up and read!)

CAUCASIANISM


by Brett Stevens


If you were a disembodied soul floating in the aether, and you knew you were to be incarnated on earth, where would you choose to be born?

You have many options, starting with continent. Asia? Africa? Australia? America (N, C, S)? Europe? Eurasia? The middle east? But then you have to ask yourself what country you would favor.

For example, you could choose Uganda. Or Costa Rica. Brazil, or Indonesia. South Africa, or Ireland. Canada, or Argentina. Kenya or Madagascar. Iraq or Mexico. Even Vietnam or Texas the United States.

THE AFRICANIZATION OF FRANCE


by Falko Baumgartner

Geographically one finds France in Europe, but demographically the country is swiftly drifting towards Africa as recent data indicates. France, unlike America, does not hold censuses on ethnicity, but follows instead its ideal of the color-blind republic. This, obviously, does not change one bit the ethnic reality on the ground, but it certainly helps to keep its citizens in the dark about it. No official figures exist on the size of the immigrant population and the native French – until now. Pertinent material has come from quite an unexpected source, medicine, and it has all the hallmarks of allowing us for the first time an adequately precise and unbiased look into the strong growth of the non-White population in France.

"DIVERSITY? WHO CARES?"


In this segment of an interview, comedy mogul Jerry Seinfeld displays welcome irritation, bordering on sheer, stark, fed-up pissiness, with those who bitch about the lack of racial diversity on his and other television programs. "Diversity? Who cares?" he asks, rhetorically. What should matter, he adds, isn't the racial proportionality of a cast, but whether or not a comedy show is actually funny.

A segment of Alt Right's readership will protest, "Seinfeld is a Jew!" Yes, but in this interview he clearly isn't playing the "Jew" card. Instead, he calls attention to the fact that his cast, as well as his audience, is overwhelmingly white, moreover asserting that (just as his character on "Seinfeld" might say) there is nothing wrong with that. This attitude is the very opposite of Kevin MacDonald's "culture of critique," wherein the proclivities of white gentiles are automatically held in suspicion and contempt by Jewish elites.

Wherever one stands on the "Jewish question," we think it would behoove our readers to applaud this particular Jew's open defiance of the ever-present white-shaming bully-brigade. Bravo, Jerry.

LET THE INTERNET CLONE WARS BEGIN


Back in the dark old days of the Cold War, when the Soviet Union was challenging America's unearned global supremacy, there was nothing that the Soviets wouldn't do to win. As an admittedly more backward country, this involved copying and, in fact, stealing a lot of ideas from the West. A wide range of Soviet products were simply clones of Western ones.

The Makarov 9mm Pistol was a rip-off of the German Walther 9mm Ultra, the Soviet Gaz Mini Truck was a Ford AA truck without the Ford logo, the Tupolev TU-4 bomber was simply a steal of the Boeing B-29, and the Vyatka moped, was an all too humble tribute to the mighty Vespa. The list is endless.

SOMETHING ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK


Denmark has, according the the official statistics, 10% non-white immigrants. This would sound like heaven on Earth to white Americans, who are becoming a minority at lightning speed. This is a situation we in Denmark have a little more time to avoid. But not much more.

SHOOTING AN ELEPHANT

Known for walking enormous distances to its final resting place.

by Henry Dampier

The Republican party serves as a resource sink for the right wing. It’s a token resistance to the left, which temporarily delays the general ruination of the country, if that. The neocon faction, which has suffered catastrophic losses since the financial collapse that footed the Bush II presidency, was more a different varietal of mainstream leftism than representative of rightist thought.

The right wing tends to blunt itself when it pursues democratic political power, because winning elections requires ideological dilution, as is taught in any political science course. I’ll stop writing now about why the GOP sucks, because this should be review for most of you.

The Republican party can never again gain national authority as in the manner that its ‘base’ wants it to, because, as Mitt Romney noticed during his campaign, roughly 47% of the country is reliant on transfer payments from the state to make ends meet. The real number is probably higher, given that many private companies rely on government contracts.

COKE AIN'T IT

                     



I’ll admit that I had an immediate, visceral, and startlingly profane reaction to the now notorious Coca-Cola advertisement broadcast during the Super Bowl, as my poor, patient wife can attest. 

The commercial, as surely you must know by now, features “America the Beautiful” being sung in various languages while a dippy montage unfolds featuring breakdancing blacks, hijab-adorned Middle Eastern women, yarmulked men, loveably grizzled septagenarian Latino cowboys and adorable urban effeminates (with a few sparse hints of white, seeming-heterosexual suburbanites begrudgingly thrown in as if in afterthought).

SELLING THE VACUUM



If economics teaches us anything it is that you can look at one set of figures and see endless prosperity, but squint at them and you’ll see nothing but doom and gloom.

So, with so much subjectivity around, how do you get at the truth? My advice is to forget the number crunching, the charts, and other diagnostic tools of the modern witch doctors, and start reading the signs directly. In a sky without eagles it might be rather hard to resort to a bit of augury, but just as the Etruscans and Romans had their avian messengers, so the society of the present day also has its sky-borne bringers of truth. We call them commercials and the US Superbowl seems to signify their season, especially as American football is a sport that seems tailor-made for showing them.

REVIEW OF STEVEN PINKER'S "THE BETTER ANGELS OF OUR NATURE"

The Better Angels of Our Nature
Steven Pinker, 1028 pages
Available for purchase from Amazon here

Reviewed by Foseti

I started this book 99.5% sure violence had declined over time. I finished it 65% sure violence had declined over time and 100% sure that Steven Pinker needs a more aggressive editor.

Everyone liked this book, but it rubbed me the wrong way. It’s also really long.

Here’s a basic summary. The book covers six trends that reduce violence: 1) the move to “agricultural civilizations;” 2) the rise of central authorities that dominate significant territories; 3) the humanitarian revolution; 4) the “Long Peace” following WWII; 5) the decline in organized conflicts more broadly; 6) the growth of the human rights movement.

Five historical forces are added to these trends to complete the explanation of the declining violence: 1) the leviathan; 2) commerce; 3) feminization; 4) cosmopolitanism; and 5) the rise of reason.

Once he lays these ideas, we begin a very long (seriously, it’s really long) analysis of just how violent old civilizations were.

I’m going to cut the BS right here. If you want to read some analyses of the good points of the book and how smart Pinker is, you can find such analyses all over the internet. I’m just going to tell you what’s wrong with this book and Pinker’s thesis that violence has declined over time. The fact that I’m only focusing on the bad should not be taken to mean that I thought the book was all bad – it definitely has some good portions and some very solid arguments.

"EVERYTHING IN THE WOMB, NOTHING OUTSIDE OF THE WOMB, AND NOTHING AGAINST THE WOMB"

An interview with Jack Donovan for the Finnish magazine Sarastus


by Timo Hännikäinen

In "The Way of Men" you say that the only way to reclaim masculinity and return to honor and manly virtue is to start a gang. And in your essay "Anarcho-fascism" you say that only new warrior-gangs can rise effectively against "the corrupt, feminist, anti-tribal, degraded institutions of the established order." Are you aware that this solution may be far too extreme to most men? Especially men with families tend to value organized society higher than tribalism. In some African civil wars (in Liberia in 1990′s for example) armed male gangs have replaced the rule of government and law, but life there is really nasty, brutish and short. Do you think that there is any other way to revolt against the modern world than anarchic gang warfare?

Donovan: There are no moderate solutions to the problems presented by global capitalism, multiculturalism and feminism. Pan-secession into tribal groups within a failing state is the only alternative I see within most nations.

Half-measures and "sensible" solutions merely slow the progression of these phenomena as international corporations and wealthy individuals consolidate power and control.

EVER GREATER AND LESS JUDGMENTAL INTERACTION BETWEEN ALL THE BLOBS ON PLANET EARTH

The End of History?


According to Professor Dugin, there have been three distinct ideologies since the dawn of the modern age – Liberalism, Marxism, and Fascism – and we are now moving into the era of the Fourth Ideology. Dugin clearly hopes that he can influence how this turns out, but this is a paradoxical belief because underlying Dugin's ideas is the notion of a kind of natural progression of ideologies.

This deterministic pattern is apparent if we consider the subjects of the three ideologies, which are, in ascending order, the Individual, the Class, and the Nation/Race. Dugin's hope is that the subject of the Fourth Ideology will be Heidegger's concept of Dasein, which, in its essence, is almost a kind of animism in that it is a rejection of the hyper-connectivity and hyper-standardization of modernity.
This ideological subject represents a break with the sequence of the three earlier ideologies.
Another important difference is that, while the preceding ideologies were each expressions of modernity, his Fourth Ideology is anti- or amodernist at a time when humanity en masse is giving in to the various temptations of modernity.

THE NATALIE GRANT PROTOCOL



by Andy Nowicki

In a previous post entitled "What Phil Robertson Should Have Said," I examined the then-embattled "Duck Dynasty" reality TV star's plight vis a vis his comments about homosexuality to a GQ magazine reporter, and his subsequent suspension (since lifted) by his network to punish the bearded patriarch for the twin offenses of felonious crimespeak and aggravated hatethink.
