The Social Collapse of Complex Societies

Submitted by CC Conservative thinkers tend to blame individualism for selfish behavior because they overestimate the power of ideas and neglect the material makeup of the social environment. They lament the loss of communal values but show little concern for the loss of physical communities. While an undermined ethical foundation rouses the wrath of a…

The ‘80s Core of the New Right

Submitted by Semmelweis “Politics is downstream from culture” Andrew Breitbart famously said, before they killed him. He was just ripping off seminal leftist thinker Antonio Gramsci, but the observation nonetheless remains true. Culture isn’t just a noun after all, but also a verb—to culture something or someone means to grow it, to shape it in…

China Lied

Submitted by Semmelweis The dysfunctional twenty year relationship between the U.S. and China has been thrown into the spotlight by the Coronacrisis, and it’s unclear at this point whether the relationship will be salvageable at all, or if it will descend into outright conflict. The apparent cooperation and friendliness between the two has always been…

Cultural Content Opportunity: Traditional Games, Part 2

Submitted by mongoose kikimora While I took a more official tone in my previous post, explaining with verbose grandiosity the immense value of the virgin lands of the traditional gaming hobby to a rightist, I think a more conversational shall suffice here. Today I would like to write a follow up to my previous post…

Springboks: Last flight of the Afrikaner

By Alfonz Cavalier Chances are, if you’re reading this, you probably don’t care about rugby. After all, the publication is called ‘The American Sun’, and Americans haven’t really been noted for their prowess in Rugby Football since roughly the 1880s. More than that, however, there is a tendency in these circles to dismiss ‘sportsball’ as…

The New Model, Same As The Old Model

As if conjured up by Hollywood to reveal all that is wrong with our system, Pete Buttigieg now has his moment in the spotlight in the election 2020 season. Being the front man for a web of billionaires, operatives and consultants, Mayor Pete was the beneficiary of an effort to deny Bernie Sanders an outright…

Cultural Content Opportunity: Traditional Games

By mongoose.kikimora Much is made in our circles about tradition, that old cornerstone of rightoid thought since time immemorial. The rightist has perennially been occupied with the old ways, preferring atavism and well worn paths to the new and untried. Similarly, the traditional gamer sticks to outmoded and well worn ways of entertaining himself. However,…

Cultural Content Opportunity: Book Publishing

The world of fiction has grown to become a game of bingo. An author must be from in an usual ethnicity and the subject matter must play to a progressive narrative. The formula of all stories now of white is bad and new/diverse is good has become so widespread that even television advertisements use it….

The Last Anglo

Sir Roger Scruton is no longer among us. His life and his contributions have, (nihil nisi bonum) a very mixed reception in our circles – a reception they no doubt deserve. His passing, however, gives us an opportunity to reflect why they receive the mixed response they have enjoyed since the coming of age of…

Shifting Culture + Five Friday Reads 12/20/19

An interesting piece on culture was linked to the Dark Enlightenment subreddit. It concerned a cultural reconquista of America. It had the accurate diagnosis that America’s cultural institutions are in the left’s hands. It used the reconquista of Spain as a way to explain that no, not all is lost and the culture can be…
