RUSSIA: THE PARADOX OF THE CORE AND THE FRINGE



The Chechens or possibly their fellow Muslims from other parts of the Caucasus have been at it again: committing "cowardly" acts of suicide terrorism and, in the process, emphasizing the contradictory nature of a Russian state that, despite the breakup of the Soviet Union, still extends far beyond its demographic boundaries, yet somehow tries to pretend that it doesn't.

VICTORY THROUGH POLARIZATION, conclusion

Machiavelli of the modern age: Saul Alinsky

by William Solniger


(continued from part 1)

It is perhaps more difficult now than ever before to offer white Europeans new (or restored) values, identities, flags, causes, and heroes. Radical traditionalists who try to do this soon find themselves battling upstream – against the decadent Western “culture” that breeds apathy, irony and inertia; against the mass media that rushes to stigmatise any rightist cause that seems to be gaining momentum; and, significantly, against the leftist discourse of critique (taught in some form to every one of the legions of young people on the humanities-degree conveyor belt) that exists to “deconstruct”, ridicule, and otherwise smear shit over everything traditionally European.

TRANSITIONING FROM MODERNITY: A REVIEW OF ALEXANDER DUGIN’S "THE FOURTH POLITICAL THEORY" (PART 2 OF 2)



For the second part of my review of Alexander Dugin’s The Fourth Political Theory, I will focus on the more esoteric and abstract aspects, and attempt to relate it to real political concerns and issues. Although such ideas may seem irrelevant to a lot of people, they do have significance in the sense that they allow us to trace the trajectory of Dugin’s ideas, as well as their implications on the political sphere. In other words, they can tell us where Dugin is “coming from.”

TRANSITIONING FROM MODERNITY: A REVIEW OF ALEXANDER DUGIN'S "THE FOURTH POLITICAL THEORY" (PART 1 OF 2)



Due to the complexity of the The Fourth Political Theory and the wide array of ideas presented therein, I considered it prudent to divide my review into two parts. The first part will deal with Dugin’s political and geopolitical theories, while the second part will deal with the more abstract aspects of his thoughts.

Discussing Alexander Dugin's latest book, The Fourth Political Theory is in many ways a difficult task, mainly because the book itself is extremely abstract, and also because it attempts to address various complex issues simultaneously. So I think it’s best to start my review by stating that I have read many of Dugin’s translated articles and have watched many of his videos online, many of which are too arcane for my intellectual faculties.

WHO KILLED DRUMMER RIGBY?


by Dave Stevens


There is no doubt that Nigerian Immigrants Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale killed Drummer Lee Rigby. They boasted of doing so and have rightly been convicted of murder. They deserve the martyrdom they seek at the end of a hangman’s rope, and if Britain was really a democracy in which the will of the British people was done that is what they would get. In fact they cannot be sentenced at all until a panel of senior judges tell the trial judge what sentences the "European Court of Human Rights" will allow him to pass on them .

But Adebolajo and Adebowale are not the ONLY people who killed Lee Rigby.

LOOKING BACK, FORGING FORWARD

The two-faced Roman god Janus

As we reach the end of an old year and anticipate the start of a new one, it is appropriate to reflect on what has come to pass and to look ahead at what’s likely to come.

We find ourselves at a temporary virtual home right now, there being no room at the proverbial inn following the events of the “Christmas Day Purge,” described in an Alternative Right Facebook status update that I authored, which was posted on December 26:
"To those of you still wondering, here's what happened: on Christmas Day, we discovered that Richard Spencer, the originator and former editor-in-chief of Alternative Right, had fixed the web address of alternativeright.com so that it automatically reroutes to his new magazine, Radix Journal. This unannounced move caught us by surprise. Although Richard owns the URL for Alternative Right, and thus had every legal right to do what he did, we were still taken aback by the way this transition was handled.


PODCAST 3: 2013 IN REVIEW


Andy and Colin are joined once again by Carl to take a look back at the "Year of the Snake" as it starts to slither out of sight. Among the talking points are MSNBC's attack on NPI and Alternative Right, the steady growth of Euro-nationalism, the suicide of Dominique Venner, the superpower showdown over Syria, the rise of Bitcoin, the successful NPI Conference in Washington, the death of Margaret Thatcher, and Miley Cyrus's over-active tongue.

MANDATE OF THE HEAVENS



The extension of China’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) recently generated a lot of not so subtle butthurt in regional geopolitics here in Asia, so it is prudent to examine this particular issue within a broader context.

WHAT PHIL ROBERTSON SHOULD HAVE SAID


by Andy Nowicki


Phil Robertson, the embattled patriarch of TV reality show Duck Dynasty, recently committed the tactical error of being sincere and forthcoming.

A smart, articulate, clever man, the backwoods multimillionaire business mogul nevertheless badly squandered what could have proved to be an opportunity to exercise Christ’s injunction to be “innocent as a dove, but shrewd as a serpent.”

LET IT BURN: THE CONSERVATIVE BLOGOSPHERE'S PENCHANT FOR IMPOTENT OBSERVATION


by Max Suebian


Like many people, I was largely unaware of the "blogosphere" until 9-11.

Like virtually all of the cookie-cutter conservatives I know, I was initially swept up by the Neo-Conservative agenda, and wholeheartedly supported George W. Bush's declared intention to bring democracy to the world... even if that meant down the scope of a predator drone.

NICELY DEFENDING THE NASTY AND INDEFENSIBLE

From the Dissident Right
by John Derbyshire
Vdare Books, 224 pages
Available for purchase at Amazon.com

Reviewed by Gilbert Cavanaugh

I would be surprised if there was a single AltRight reader that was not familiar with the sordid tale. After writing the now infamous The Talk: Nonblack Version for Taki’s Magazine. John “The Derb” Derbyshire was summarily fired from The National Review. Shortly thereafter Peter Brimelow hired him full-time at Vdare and he has now become a bit of a celebrity among we who dare speak of race. Last April, to mark the one-year anniversary of said brouhaha, Vdare released a collection of The Derb’s writings and talks.

VICTORY THROUGH POLARIZATION, PART ONE


by William Solniger


In a previous essay entitled “Resisting Egalitarian Humbug,” I introduced the concept of ‘kakistocracy’ (rule of the worst) to describe the type of elite which rules under the political formula of universal egalitarianism, and is commanded by both the logic of that formula and its own self-interest to incessantly attack its host society. I identified the modern “secular church” of progressivism with this type of elite, and noted that it shares a significant degree of common purpose with the more formal power- and wealth-holding elites of government and business.

ALTRIGHT PODCAST (2): MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT



Andy and Colin are once again joined by Charles to discuss the "The Knockout Game" a spate of random attacks by Blacks against non-Blacks that seems to be motivated by racial hatred. Colin also explains the role that Whites play in this game with their own "Blankout Game," in which they foolishly feign race blindness, leaving themselves open to these attacks.


ALTRIGHT PODCAST (1): LOST VIOLENT SOULS



In the very first Alt-Right podcast, Andy and Colin are joined by John Morgan of Arktos Publishing and "Charles," an aspiring (and secretive) Swedish folk musician and writer, to talk about the passing of two men who died on the same day, Nelson Mandela and Colin Wilson. While one was lauded by every outlet of the mainstream media, the other was practically ignored. We also plug Andy's new book Lost Violent Souls and alternative history novels.

A REVIEW: HOBBIT 2: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG



I suppose I should be used to it by now, but there are times I just hope beyond hope that I won't be let down again. Hollywood, you've left me bruised and spat upon too many times to count. Just give me my Tolkien unspoiled and I'll be good. Please!

WHY DIVERSITY CAN NEVER WORK




My position has been consistent since 1997: diversity doesn't work.

This is different from dislike or fear of the elements of diversity, such as "I don't like black people" or "I think Caucasians are inferior." It is not a critique of a specific aspect of diversity, but diversity itself.

It applies uniformly to diversity of religious, ethnic/racial, cultural, linguistic and even caste distinctions. The rule is that the less variation you have in your society, the healthier and happier it is.

FRANCIS BACON AND THE DEGENERATION OF THE WEST

Lucien Freud or the Elephant Man?


A triptych by the Irish-born British artist Francis Bacon was sold by Christie’s in New York for the record sum for any artwork at auction of £89 million this month.

Bacon’s three depictions of Freud seem sketchy indeed. Each shows him seated within a framework of lines that look like aids to drawing perspective. Freud’s foot escapes from this framework cage in some sort of symbolism. The artist breaking the boundaries of art?

Freud’s face is a distorted blob, as if, instead of Freud as a sitter, Bacon was in lurid fashion painting the Elephant Man. Actually, if one had not been told, one would have no idea who the sitter was. It could have been almost anyone – a stranger off the street. And here we have the key to this work. For who tells us that this is Freud? It is Francis Bacon, the artist.
