Arguing About The Role of History in Contemporary Politics

Arguing About The Role of History in Contemporary Politics

Is it worth it to spend time, effort and mental energy on political arguments about history? Is Nazism/Fascism left or right-wing? Did Hitler do nothing wrong? Many various political movements appear to place great value on legitimacy derived from historical arguments. Antifa and the so-called “Alt-Left” identifies themselves as Anti-Fascists, the goodness derived from being in opposition to something bad is at the core of their identity and perceived legitimacy. Without that legitimacy derived from a historical argument, they’re simply…

Corrupting Tentacles of State Money

Corrupting Tentacles of State Money

It is interesting how the source of big societal problems has shifted over the last decade. During my political awakening during the Bush administration the government was the big threat to free speech. Governmental censorship was the punching bag and the opponent we could all stand united against. Now, the greatest threat to free speech are the overarching megamaniacal private tech companies and the wider social justice movement. It is frightening how powerful these few entities have become. Just like…

Centrist Extremism

Centrist Extremism

Why is it that the political center always escapes criticism and negative focus from the media?

I’m sure that they could easily brand centrists as right-wing “light” if they so desired. The inertial drift of politics greatly benefits the political middle. The left and the right want to pull politics in their respective directions, while the center can present themselves…

At first glance it is undoubtedly true that democratic countries generally have great economic outcomes. Europe, North America, Australia, Japan and so on all are wealthy countries. But the story doesn’t end there. Many countries that have or have had totalitarian regimes in the recent past have done…

Proving The Validity of Metapolitics

Proving The Validity of Metapolitics

The Norwegian parliamentary election is about a month away. In the media we have seen all kinds of politicians coming out in defense of “Norwegian values”. There have been many interviews with party leaders, parliamentarians, letters to the editor and so on debating what those values are and whether or not they are threatened. This tells me that the metapolitical work of the European New Right has been effective. This kind of debate, especially at this wide level wouldn’t have…

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…
