WANTED: SOMETHING TO DREAM

by Alex Kurtagic

I have written elsewhere about the need for pro-White campaigners to provide their target audience with better incentives than the apocalyptic warnings about economic collapse, race wars, and extinction that have constituted the traditional fare of the White Nationalist movement. I have argued that the reason campaigners have failed to make real political progress, in spite of having logical arguments, a moral case, and massive supporting data, is that, in the effort to persuade and inspire action, key aspects of human psychology have been ignored. Even though he is typically steeped in sociobiology, the White advocate has generally relied on rational persuasion to advance the pro-White agenda, neglecting well-known pre-rational motivators, such as the need for status and self-esteem (which he knows well enough), and the role of emotion (which he often deplores). We often hear about confronting the boobs with "the facts," even though it has been amply demonstrated that, on their own, facts make no political difference.

THE EDUCATION OF GLENN BECK

by Richard Hoste

On April 9, 2010, Newsweek ran an article entitled simply "Hate." In it the magazine called Fox News host Glenn Beck "the master purveyor of...[a] particular brand of sly paranoia" and attempted to link him to antigovernment and militia organizations. Another article in the same magazine argued that Beck validates liberals' worst fears about conservatives -- that they're "hyperbolic, demagogic, irrational, and slightly unhinged." Chris Matthews has stated that Beck's show is the one he can be sure he'd never go on and Cookie Roberts once called him "worse than a clown" and "more like a terrorist." Time Magazine's Joe Klein has accused Beck of coming close to committing sedition.

GREEK FIRE

by Panayotis Doumas

In March, a group of medium and small businessmen plus some Athens residents sued the mayor of Athens, Mr. Kaklamanis, who is responsible for the policing of the city, alleging misconduct for his refusal to tackle the serious problem of street vendors, many of them illegal immigrants, selling counterfeit goods. It is estimated that counterfeit vendors cost the Greek state over five billion Euros annually, and their activities have caused many companies to make redundancies or even close.

NEW TRIBE RISING?

by Patrick J. Buchanan
"Is white the new black?"
So asks Kelefa Sanneh in the subtitle of "Beyond the Pale," his New Yorker review of several books on white America, wherein he concludes we may be witnessing "the slow birth of a people."

WHITEWASH

Broad strokes: Painter
by Kevin Lamb

In the orbit of academic research, books tend to fall into two broad categories: the landmark synthesis, a carefully argued, meticulous masterpiece that reflects years, even decades, of research and distilled analysis; and the ideological tract, the slipshod collection of essays that rests on a flimsy mix of distortions, omissions, dubious conjectures, and questionable use of secondary sources, which passes for scholarship in contemporary academe.

PAPER TIGER


Following last year's multiple sex scandal, Tiger Woods has now finally come out and apologized in what looked like a heavily scripted and intensely rehearsed performance before a select audience of sympathetic friends and media for the benefit of his corporate advertising profile. After all that has happened, it will certainly be an uphill struggle to re-launch the golfer's shattered career and image, and save his marriage.

While the lurid details of this scandal have held a fleeting interest for the general public, this case is worthy of more serious consideration because it reveals a great deal about the shortcomings and contradictions of the multicultural globalism that we are opposed to.

HUNGARIAN SPRING

by Derek Turner

On 14 April, Hungarian electors rejected the Socialist government which had been in office since 2002, voting instead overwhelmingly for the conservative Fidesz party led by Viktor Orban (who was prime minister 1998-2002) and the nationalist Jobbik, led by Gabor Vona. The final allocation of seats will only be made after the second round on 25 April, but these results indicate that Fidesz will have 206 seats in the 386 seat parliament and Jobbik 26 (the Socialists will probably have just 28).

CAPTIVE MINDS

by Joseph Kay

Domesticating intellectuals -- housebreaking them, to be a tad vulgar -- is a serious, though seldom adequately discussed, business. After all, intellectuals traffic in ideas, many potentially quite toxic and dangerous, so they must be reigned in, lest like Typhoid Mary, they wreck havoc.

MIND THE GAPS

by John Derbyshire

These remarks were delivered at a panel discussion organized by the Black Law Students' Association (BLSA) of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, April 5, 2010. The official title of the event was "Revisiting Race and Remedies: Should the Government Play A Role in Eliminating Racial Disparities in Education and Employment?"

WE AREN'T THE WORLD

by Alex Kurtagic

On March 3, the BBC reported that the millions raised by Bob Geldof's BandAid campaign and LiveAid concerts to relieve victims of famine in Ethiopia in 1984-1985 went straight to paramilitary rebels, who then used the money to buy weapons and overthrow the government of the time. The corporation informed us that "[f]ormer rebel leaders told the BBC that they posed as merchants in meetings with charity workers to get aid money."

AFTER WAGNER

by R.J. Stove

If one wanted further proof of the mainstream media's relentless tabloidization, the coverage of Wolfgang Wagner's recent death would supply it. Born in 1919, Wolfgang was the composer's grandson and, from 1966 until 2008, the Bayreuth Festival's supremo. New Yorker columnist Alex Ross, long established as an author and researcher of quality, did the best of any commentator for a major print outlet, writing, inter alia:

SWAN SONG

by Derek Turner

One of the saddest stories I have ever read about the cultural effects of mass migration came from the Daily Mail of 25 March 2010. Written by Andrew Malone, "Slaughter of the Swans" related the plight of recession-struck Polish and Lithuanian migrant workers stranded in England without work, money or even shelter. Some of these have been compelled to camp out in makeshift shanties along the banks of the River Nene in the city of Peterborough, about 70 miles north of London. (There are similar camps elsewhere.)
