@Matar Judios that’s a great book! I actually gave to Richard once as a gift.

Richard, a book recommendation for you:

“History and Utopia” by the reactionary Franco-Romanian thinker (philosopher) E.M. Cioran.

You will thank me!

It would be good if you can post the original interview dates of these conversations.

This discussion was very interesting, and I definitely have a greater appreciation for why Richard places such importance on Nietzsche for the Alt Right.

Jonathan Bowden was a very intelligent and thoughtful man and I loved his take on Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos.

On a side note,has anyone seen the Sam (((Kestenbaum))) article on the jewish daily forward about the “My fellow White people” meme?

I don’t see anyone in the Fashosphere talking about it.

I did a little write up on it on my blog The Liberationist (it’s a satire of the leftist lexicon and imagery).

This is a useful article to link too next time Melissa deludes herself into thinking the Alt-Right is a Christian movement.

Well, thanks for introducing me to Jonathan Bowden. I confess to say that I did not know anything about him before hearing this.

Bowden’s erudition was top-notch. It is such a shame he passed away so young.


Counter Currents Publishing has put out a few of his books. I’m reading one of them and it’s pretty good, it’s a series of essays (possibly transcribed speeches?), 10 or so are about various right wing figures, from Yokio Mishma to Carlyle. The opening article is about the need for a right-wing vanguard, and is perhaps the best in the collection.

Bowden was not a “novelist”, but fancied himself one. His efforts in that realm are disjointed and amateurish. Likewise, his work as an “actor” were also a fanciful delusion he held, but quite hilarious to watch. His only claim to anything was as a somewhat competent speaker, although he bloviated quite a bit. He’s already vanished into the mists of time, and so his posting here is utterly irrelevant to our cause.
