Reexperiencing the Recent Political Past

Reexperiencing the Recent Political Past

Ever since the magical night of November 8 2016, I’ve found great enjoyment in seeking out YouTube videos of the election night coverage. I watched everything I could get my hands on immediately following the event. Additionally, I have also re-watched these and other clips in the months since. It is incredibly enlightening to compare the coverage on the different networks on election night itself with their coverage of the period since. The most anti-Trump networks (MSNBC/CNN) have continued with…

Throwing Economics Under The (White) Bus

Throwing Economics Under The (White) Bus

Greg Johnson’s “Truth, Justice and a Nice White Country” contains several articles covering the topic of economics. In them he criticises the supposed free market dogma generally found on the right. He is not alone in this critique. Many other prominent people within the ethno-nationalist movement share these sentiments. In Vox Day’s Alt-Right “Manifesto” he expressly differentiates the Alt-Right from other movements on the right espousing the virtues of the free market. I myself have been a proponent of the…

Beyond The Surface

Beyond The Surface

If you want to truly understand the politics of the modern world, you have to dig deeper than the surface. Politicians, activists, organizations, media actors and other interested parties often cloak their real intentions in acceptable issue-shrouds. Environmentalism is often in practice a green mask for socialism. Molyneux has used the metaphor: “They’re like a watermelon, green on the outside, red on the inside”. Particularly in the West, we wish to preserve the pristine nature of the wilderness. Who can…

Boundless Mountaintop Incompetence

Boundless Mountaintop Incompetence

In general, I’m a calm and collected person. I have a high threshold for becoming emotionally upset. But today, that limit was surpassed. I came across a piece in the Norwegian newspaper VG about the ridiculous behavior by tourists mountaineering in the Norwegian wilderness. Last year I watched a documentary about the same problem. As a person that greatly enjoys the bountiful beauty found in nature, the fundamental lack of preparedness displayed by these tourists infuriates me. At the root…

Abuse of Media Power

Abuse of Media Power

It is not a closely held state secret that the media institutions contained within the label mainstream media aren’t paragons of virtue and ethics in journalism. All too often we see examples of stories being portrayed deceptively. The latest iteration is the Megyn Kelly – Alex Jones kerfuffle. I would be disappointed in the intellectual faculties of anyone that reacted with surprise to the revelation that a mainstream journalist cut and edited hours upon hours of footage to distort the…

Bending the Knee and Respecting Violence

Bending the Knee and Respecting Violence

I have been thinking a lot about the societal dangers of “bending the knee” to political violence or threats of violence. There has been a lot of talk about a group called “The Nordic Resistance Movement” recently, due to their planned demonstration having its permit pulled by the police. It had initially been given the green light by the police, but that decision was reversed. The reason given by the authorities was that they feared that violence might erupts. Counter-demonstrators…

Is “Boring-Shaming” the new Slut Shaming?

Is “Boring-Shaming” the new Slut Shaming?

I have been “boring-shamed” in my life. I’ve been accused of being a boring person. I don’t go out and drink until I vomit, I don’t sleep around with a new Tinder-partner every week, I don’t have a clue who won the season finale on “insert reality program here” and you won’t find me at the neighbourhood weekend party. In other words, I must be supremely boring. Ever since I was a kid, partying, drinking and other similar activities had…
