Politicians, public health authorities, and many journalists demand that Americans trust “the science,” but “the science” is often not science but dogma. Soon after taking office, Joe Biden said his administration would “lead with science and truth.” Should we have expected fantasy and lies? Vice President Kamala Harris said: This is true, but people don’t... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss a few more lefties recommended by listeners: Jack London, Antonio Gramsci, Matt Taibbi, Glenn Greenwald, and Edward Abbey. Listen

The movie The Purge has now become a franchise, comparable to The Fast & the Furious, spawning five films and a television series. It has brought in more than $500 million. It tries to be darkly comic, but the real joke is that it portrays the opposite of what’s happening in the country today, and... Read More
In recent years, the difference between the United States of America and the “authoritarian” governments of China and Russia has shrunk. Powerful institutions on both “Left” and “Right,” from unions and NGOs to big business, worked very hard to sway the last election. Even if it wasn’t outright fraud, it is hard to say it... Read More
The recent violence in South Africa wasn’t just a battle between different factions of the governing African National Congress. Clearly, there were tensions between black supporters of former president Jacob Zuma and current president Cyril Ramaphosa. Some Zuma supporters may never stop demanding his release from prison. However, there were deeper tensions and problems that... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts discuss how dissidents can enjoy leftist satire, the pleasure of bellicose science fiction, and why white people should read Harry Turtledove. Listen
In A Man for All Seasons, Sir Thomas More rebukes another character who betrays him in return for a regional appointment. “It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world, but for Wales?” In like manner, I ask what have we gained from importing the whole world? Thanks to mass immigration,... Read More
Police officers are positioned to deal with looting in Johannesburg, South Africa, on July 12, 2021. Soldiers have been deployed in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng provinces to deal with violent protests and looting. (Credit Image: © Yeshiel / Xinhua via ZUMA Press) Though most media covered it sparingly, South Africa nearly collapsed. Revolver has an excellent... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts talk about why it’s valuable to read leftists, understand leftists, and take leftists seriously. Listen
Many leftists really do think Ashli Babbitt was a “terrorist” and, presumably, deserved to die. Breaking into the Capitol was a bad idea. However, an unarmed woman didn’t deserve to be executed for it. Furthermore, when countless rioters looted, burned, and attacked people in the name of George Floyd they got away with their crimes.... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Noam Chomsky: his anarcho-syndicalist worldview, his critiques of American foreign policy, and most importantly, his studies on mainstream media, hegemony, and influence. Listen

Five years ago, I wrote a book called Waking Up From The American Dream. One of my assumptions was that America was uniquely destructive because the egalitarian virus was implicit in its founding. America wasn’t really a “proposition nation”; no nation is. However, it was at least plausible to believe that it was, that it... Read More
Just a few days ago, very few people knew who Gwen Berry was. However, in modern America, protesting the flag is a good way for an athlete to become famous. Miss Berry finished third in the hammer throw at the U.S. Olympic Trials. On the medals stand, while the white athletes who took first and... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Chris Hedges, one of the most popular leftist intellectuals of our time. They cover the role religion plays in his worldview, the insight of his analyses of pornography and reality television, the limits of leftist empathy, and much more. Listen
Americans are spontaneously organizing to oppose Critical Race Theory. President Donald Trump has a plan to remove it, and calls it “divisive” and “radical.” Florida (and at least three other states) banned it in classrooms, and Governor Ron DeSantis is probably using the battle to prepare for a presidential run. Conservative leaders including Steve Bannon... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts talk about all of Orwell’s works aside from his two famous novels, with special attention to his writings about the Spanish Civil War and patriotism. Listen

Clarity is needed. Millions of European-Americans love this country. They work for it, pay for it, fight for it, and die for it. They do this even though their government discriminates against them, shames them, and pushes immigration policies that will turn them into a hated minority. The American flag is the symbol of the...

Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts address fan-suggested topics. The two talk about colonialism, 1984, A Brave New World, black nationalism, and much more. Listen
German governments have used two strategies to crush dissent in the last century. The Third Reich used Gleichschaltung, or “coordination,” with the state pushing public and private organizations into line with National Socialism. Communist East Germany used Zersetzung, “decomposition,” with its Stasi secret police wrecking the personal lives, careers, and reputations of dissidents. White advocates... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the “New Atheists.” They ask why the movement rose to prominence in the 2000s but quickly waned in influence, consider its connection to the alt-right, and argue that in the end, the atheist political project isn’t too different from generic liberalism. Listen
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Jean Raspail’s “notorious” 1973 novel, The Camp of the Saints: what it got right, what it got wrong, its literary merits, and why liberals hate it. Listen

History doesn’t change to fit our wishes. We wish whites hadn’t imported blacks as slaves and had not changed immigration policy in 1965. However, in a multiracial society, history often isn’t about facts. It’s a weapon. A story about the past justifies current policy. When history doesn’t provide a suitably horrific example, invent one. The... Read More
An embassy is a nation’s face to the world. An American embassy is American territory, the flag expresses sovereignty, and attacking an embassy is an act of war. So what are we to make of American embassies that fly Black Lives Matter flags? The BLM flag now represents the United States. It’s bizarre enough for... Read More
Jean Raspail wrote the most prophetic book of this century, The Camp of the Saints. It ends with the last remnant of the West about to be overrun. The book’s final words are: “The fall of Constantinople is a personal misfortune that happened to all of us only last week.” Tomorrow, May 29, that colossal... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s book Democracy: The God that Failed. The hosts cover the limits of libertarianism, the problem with prioritizing economic theory over everything else, and question Prof. Hoppe’s claim that monarchy is better than democracy. Listen
Greater Idaho “What is to be done?” ask white advocates. There are countless strategies, but a crucial one is to build power on the local level. One way to do this is to secede from states and either join or create other states. The Left is already trying to do this. It wants the District... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the late Wilmot Robertson’s magazine Instauration and his most important books: The Dispossessed Majority and The Ethnostate. Listen
Last year, Robert Hampton cited several cases of black criminals, even a murderer, who were let go or got light sentences because of “racism.” A murderer’s conviction was overturned because a juror might have said the “N word.” The juror denied it, but that didn’t matter. People in police departments, security companies, and the military... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Francis Fukuyama's The End of History and the Last Man and its many critics. Listen
Why do they hate Elon Musk? The head of Tesla and SpaceX should be a progressive hero. Leftists lecture us about “climate change” and why we need a Green New Deal. One group, Extinction Rebellion, warns of “mass extinction” unless there is revolution. The Guardian says some parents regret having children because of “climate change.”... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Paul Gottfried's enormous body of work. They cover his key insights about the leftist worldview, the managerial state, and American conservatism. Listen
“Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them.” – Thomas Jefferson The trial was pointless. We knew... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the late Sam T. Francis, philosopher-king of the dissident right. Listen
In a recent podcast with Chris Roberts, we talked about James Burnham. Burnham ripped the mask from pious rhetoric, showing the lust for power behind it. Ideology is the mask that power wears. Today, in America, people pursue status, even (perhaps especially) when they claim to be victims — except whites. In fact, there are... Read More
On Sunday, a white woman police officer shot a young black man, Daunte Wright, in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. The police chief said it was an “accidental discharge” and the cop meant to use her taser. City Manager Curt Boganey, who is black, said he would not fire the officer immediately and that she should get... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the work of the late James Burnham. Though largely forgotten by the conservative movement he helped create, Burnham’s analyses of power, class, and liberalism are invaluable. Listen

We’re at a turning point in our history. America has practically adopted an official state ideology: Critical Race Theory (CRT), which holds that white privilege and racism are embedded in all institutions and cause inequality. Thus, practically unlimited government intervention is justified to remove racism. In practical terms, this means attacking whites, the group that... Read More
For months, the Capitol has looked like the American embassy in the Green Zone in Baghdad. A few weeks ago, I walked around the heavy barriers and saw countless signs from residents pleading for them to be taken down. Washington DC votes overwhelmingly Democrat, but yard signs suggest residents don’t want to live on something... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts fill in for Renaissance Radio’s usual hosts. They explain why the mainstream media covers some — but not all — crime, the surge on our Southern border, and why SubStack.com is becoming controversial. Listen
The Nation’s Elie Mystal is one of the country’s most widely read journalists. He recently wrote: “[O]ne of the principal benefits of the pandemic is how I’ve been able to exclude racism and whiteness generally from my day-to-day life.” Though he occasionally must worry about white people “on Zoom,” the good news is that “white... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Ayn Rand and her enormously popular books. They cover her influence on American conservatism, and even Leftism, and why that influence has largely been for the worse. Listen
In their pilot podcast episode, Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss becoming right wing and the nature of Right versus Left. They speak about the importance of hierarchies and hypocrisy, as well as left-wing conspiracy theories, racial impostors, outrage culture, and much more. Listen
The United States faces threats in Europe and the Pacific. In February, President Biden declared “America is back” and “diplomacy is back.” He implied that President Trump had destroyed “democratic alliances.” President Trump only wanted European nations to pay their share in NATO. You could argue that Mr. Trump was pro-NATO, because he wanted an... Read More
For most people, “white nationalist,” like “racist,” is just a slur without any real meaning. But it does have a meaning. “White nationalism” is government concern for white interests. Ultimately, it would mean building a nation for whites. The reason we have different nations is because peoples are different and have different interests. Peoples share... Read More
The headline is from a Turkish government site: “French call to replace English with Latin as Europe’s official language.” When I read the headline, I laughed. I stopped laughing as I read the article. Yes, Latin should be the official language of the European Union. It’s an even better idea than that of Eric Zemmour... Read More
Weddings are usually cause for celebration, and royal weddings are cause for national rejoicing. Even we colonials are fascinated by the British royal family. In 2014, when King Felipe VI succeeded his father Juan Carlos I of Spain, the crowds were puny compared to the commoners who rejoiced to see Prince William marry Kate Middleton.... Read More
There is a story about Dr. Samuel Johnson and his famous dictionary. Some ladies told him they were glad he had omitted “indelicate and objectionable” words. Dr. Johnson said he was sorry they had looked for them. That could be a story about conservatives and progressives. Progressives are dying to find hate crimes and neo-Nazis... Read More

It’s the oldest joke about the American conservative movement: “What do you call the one black guy at CPAC? The keynote speaker.” Every year, the Conservative Political Action Conference (sponsored by the American Conservative Union) tries to show it is not racist by propping up token non-whites to speak about “leaving the Democrat plantation” to... Read More
The title of the late Jerome Tuccille’s book about libertarianism was called It Usually Begins with Ayn Rand. For conservatives, the same could be said of Rush Limbaugh. Neocon or paleo, white advocate or “movement conservative,” Christian or agnostic, capitalist or protectionist, it’s hard to find anyone on the Right who didn’t spend some time... Read More

Most Western media call Russian dissident Alexei Navalny a hero. Mr. Navalny is now in a Russian prison, and our most prestigious newspapers are cheering his anti-Putin crusade. These are official editorial statements from leading publications. “The Times view on Alexei Navalny’s bravery: Russian Hero,” The Times, December 23, 2020 “The Extraordinary Courage of Aleksei...
