ALTRIGHT 2.0


As you can see, we've got new digs. (And, momentarily, we're experiencing a second "Beta" stage as we transfer over the existing content.)

"But AltRight's original site was so cool," you're thinking, "why the change?" It's true that the site was quite beautiful; however, I felt that there were many factors that justified a change—or rather a simplification and concentration of the site's aesthetics and functionality.

THE ANDY WARHOL OF THE ALTERNATVE RIGHT

by Matt Forney

(Editor's Note: Yes, this is Matt Forney reviewing his own book.)

When the infamous Moscow investigative journal and sleazerag The Exile closed its doors nearly five years ago, their farewell issue proudly bore this line on the front page: “In a nation terrorized by its own government, one newspaper dared to fart in its face.”

THREE-FIFTHS OF A CONTROVERSY

by Andy Nowicki

At Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia -- my undergraduate alma mater -- President James Wagner is in hot water... make that boiling hot lava. He has ignited a furor not likely to die down anytime soon. Faculty, students, and administrators are all screaming at him like... well, to put it frankly, like a bunch of bitches. And when faculty, student, and administrative bitches be trippin', presidential heads are liable soon to be rollin'.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF GUN CONTROL (AND OTHER POLITICAL AFFECTATIONS)


In America, the discussion of political issues is an endless and perpetually inconclusive cycle: Party mouthpieces formulate stock arguments, and the media disseminates them to the rank and file, who then absorb and regurgitate them. They are then repeated ad nauseam whenever a well-publicized event returns the question to the limelight. Solutions are never discovered. This has been standard procedure for at least the last three generations, which, incapable of seeing outside the narrow parameters of bipartisan debate, accept it as the norm. But why?

'EARTH PRIVILEGE' AND ASTEROIDS


Due to 'Earth privilege' you may be interpreting the recent spate of asteroid stories in the wrong way. Our biased, Earth-centric media tends to portray the asteroids as the danger, when it is obvious that it is the other way round. Just the other day, one unfortunate interplanetary object, innocently following its predetermined elliptical orbit around the Solar System, was smashed to cosmic dust by the Earth straying into its path.

THE LAUNCH OF THE BDP

by Colin Liddell

The next few years in British politics could be the most interesting ever. The success of UKIP, which now regularly polls over 15%, shows that the main parties are losing the popular mandate. The Labour, Conservative, and Liberal Democrat Parties are suffering from falling membership and increasing voter apathy. The people feel betrayed and resentful about the direction the country has been taken in. Quite simply an enormous political vacuum is developing.

EQUALITY AS AN EVIL




The dominant ideology of modern Western societies upholds equality as an absolute moral good, which must, therefore, be pursued for its own sake. The morality of egalitarianism is never questioned by the establishment power structure or by the vast majority of citizens; it is, in fact, a taken-for granted assumption that exists outside the scope of acceptable debate.

THE BRILLIANT AUTOMATONS

by Gabriele Vogt

College is the place where people are supposed to learn to think, but instead join mass social movements with barren intellectual foundations to strut their terminal insecurity across the public spectrum.

I put this statement to paper not as some curmudgeonly Republican lamenting modern times as the few remaining years of my life tick away. Nor am I an individual pledged to the ultimate narcissism of Objectivist thought, ready to vilify all those who decline to accept the permeating vanity and cultureless basis of my beliefs.

UNRELIABLE NARRATORS


In this second segment of our "Author to Author" audio series, Andy Nowicki speaks with legendary and acclaimed Southern writer Tito Perdue regarding Perdue's latest: a surreal racialist-themed sci-fi dystopic freak-out/comic romp entitled The Node. Then Tito turns the tables and grills Andy concerning his book Under the Nihil, a paranoid fable which charts one man's mental and spiritual collapse and his subsequent descent into pharmaceutically-induced terrorism.

VANGUARD (19): RE GENERATION

Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell are joined by French activist Roman Bernard to discuss France's promising new youth group "Génération Identitaire" and generational differences in nationalism and identity.

Also under discussion is the decline of the nation state. while Richard takes the opportunity to unload on the Conservative Movement.



THE DESEXING OF BEYONCE


The female pop star is akin to the mayfly; a delicate little creature that appears briefly, in the flower of its life, flutters around, oohs and aahs, and then disappears…no one knows where. This is its essence and natural law. If it continues past its sell-by-date it has to evolve into a different creature and jettison much of what makes it it.

ALT-RIGHT ART

Once it's seen, it can't be unseen.
by Andy Nowicki

Left-liberal attitudes and habits of mind may at one time have been radical, provocative, and gutsy, but today they are staid, stale, conventional, and boring. Any honest contemporary cultural Marxist will have to admit that, politically speaking, his side now holds all significant power. Those who openly decline to subscribe to the ideological establishment's point of view on such matters as race, gender, and sexuality have in effect committed social suicide; having put themselves utterly at the mercy of the powers-that-be, such unfortunates have left themselves open to attack by legions of official Zeitgeist-enforcers and their numerous toadying minions.

WAR AND DEMOCRACY - A REVIEW

by Brett Stevens

We have always been fighting the Revolution. This is the thesis, in a more complex form, of Paul Gottfried’s War and Democracy, a collection of essays centered on the instability of modern liberal democracy after the “end of history,” and how it has launched us into an unending series of wars for ideological objectives. In exploring that, Gottfried also uncovers the neurotic and confused nature of modern existence.

In doing so, he targets neoconservatism, which could be described as the greatest threat to right-wing beliefs since it incorporates surface characteristics of conservatism but mates it to a fundamentally liberal mission, namely the spreading of liberal democracy in the notion that it is “progress” and will eliminate wars, liberate people and generally bring our species to a more Utopian existence.

VANGUARD (18): ALIEN NATION REDUX

Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell are joined by VDARE.com's Peter Brimelow to discuss the decline of talk radio,  the limitations of the Tea Party, America's ongoing immigration disaster, and the possibility of an "amnesty." Also discusses is Japan's more sensible approach to immigration.

LIBERAL HEGEMONY (PART TWO)


My previous post was my debut on Alternative Right, so I am surprised by the response it generated. However, I feel that I did not present my opinions in a way that was clearly understood, so have prepared the following not only in response, but to further articulate my basic premise and expand upon it.

My intention was to illustrate the process by which one ideology becomes dominant in a society. Its nominal opponents attempt to retain relevance by phrasing their arguments as answers to, rather than criticisms of, its concerns. Soon they function not as its opponents but its adjuncts. Through the conscious forfeit of its critics, the ideology passively absorbs and redesigns its competition in its own image. I realize I did not sufficiently describe the set of social conditions in which this occurs. They are as follows:

DOSTOEVSKY ON MODERN CONSERVATISM

by Mark Hackard

At first glance the U.S. Presidential Inauguration might seem another empty media spectacle. After all, the Commander-in-Chief is anointed by the infallible People, but he attains power ultimately to carry out the interests of globalist oligarchs. Yet the inauguration ceremony also serves as an affirmation of America’s true religion, liberalism. In his 2013 inaugural address, Barack Obama articulated quite clearly that “We, the People” shall lead humanity’s progress toward ever greater liberty and equality.
