VANGUARD PODCAST (13): IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT


Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell look back on 2012 and forward to 2013. Highlights include a tribute to Jonathan Bowden, favourite books and movies of 2012, and predictions for 2013.



VANGUARD PODCAST (12): 2012 XMAS SPECIAL


Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell continue their discussion of The Hobbit from the last episode, as well as J.R.R. Tolkein's other Lord of the Rings books. They then turn to Quentin Tarantino's slave-revolt-and-revenge fantasy, Django Unchained, before talking about the deeper meaning of Christmas.



THE POLIS IS NOW THE GHETTO

Multiracialism and the Death of Politics



During the American election contest, I found myself paying less attention than ever to the arguments, campaign slogans, promises and gaffes made by both sides – and I have to admit to having felt somewhat guilty about this at the time. Despite my contempt for mainstream politics both in my own country and abroad, a nagging little voice persisted in scolding me that one should at least study these things in some measure of detail.

On second thoughts, and having perused the election results, I think I should have paid even less attention than I did. As America advances towards Multi-Racial Utopia, the content of the national debates and media circus around its elections is going to become about as relevant to their results as the spectacle of a surfer dancing on the crest of a wave would be to an oceanographer. Political programmes and arguments that might once have been worthy of debate are degenerating into irrelevant entertainment, as demography and caste become the true determining factors.

VANGUARD PODCAST (11): CGI NORDICISM (THE HOBBIT)


Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell discuss a deadly shooting in Connecticut and Peter Jackson’s  movie The Hobbit




THE ACCEPTABLE ENEMY



When living in China a European cannot fail to be struck by the country’s intense nationalism; especially as it contrasts so sharply with the mixture of fear, disdain, and indifference towards national sentiment that prevails in the modern West.

When a drunken Western tourist was caught on video attempting to assault a Chinese woman in Beijing, the result was uproar on the Chinese internet and a crackdown on foreign residents by the government; contrast this with the reaction of the British establishment to the actual rapes of English girls by Pakistani gangs, which was mainly concerned with not appearing “racist” to the compatriots of the offenders! A long list of similar contrasts could be made for almost every aspect of national life, and it would make for depressing reading indeed.

VANGUARD PODCAST (8): THE OLD TIME RELIGION


The eighth of the Vanguard Podcasts, featuring the original "triumvirate" of Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell, discusses American football, blogging vs. podcasting, Japanese politics, "reactionary conservatism," and America's "Old-Time Religion." 



THE HOMO AND THE NEGRO: AN INTERVIEW WITH JAMES O'MEARA


The Homo and the Negro, a provocatively-titled collection of essays recently published by Counter-Currents, reveals one of the more interestingly idiosyncratic, and thus far largely unsung, writers of the far right.

James J. O’Meara has called his own writing style “psychedelic,” and while I don’t know if this is meant to imply the actual influence of LSD in this Detroit-born, Canadian-educated baby boomer’s life, one can indeed sense quite a bit more of a Phillip K. Dick-vibe in his work than anything Evolian or Spenglerian. But maybe that’s just a roundabout way of saying that, while O’Meara has a profound interest in matters of intellectual substance, his writing is at the same time entertaining to read, and not in any way stuffy or stultifyingly academic-sounding.

THE GREAT WORDFLATION

Words before they escaped from the monastery.


If I could write this article without words I would, because, by employing more of the squiggly little things, I am being complicit in “The Great Wordflation,” that great clogging of the mental arteries, or that stimulus to ignorance that you encounter when you see yet another 10000-word-plus essay on the internet, written by someone with a pen name detailing their personal path to enlightenment and philosophical awakening.

Matching the great inflation of the money/credit/debt supply and the great outpouring of cheap, mass-produced consumerism that has characterized our era, we have also seen The Great Wordflation. It seems only fair to assume that they are somehow all marching in lock step towards some mutually agreed cataclysmic point.

VANGUARD PODCAST (9): ABRAHAM LINCOLN, GANGNAM STYLE


Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell, discuss "Gangnam Style," Korea’s surprising pop culture sensation, and how it might prophesy a post-PC future, before turning to Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Lincoln, and how it relates to the "liberal destiny" of America.
