The second part of my Counter-Currents vocal debut is now available for downloading and listening. I’m not sure my profound intellect comes across any better in part two than it did in the rambling and inarticulate part one. Nevertheless, take a listen.

I like letters and form of a letter. I wish I could write by hand, yet this should do:
I really enjoyed listening to your interview and at many points I went ‘Wow, I can really identify with this guy’. I am a Social Anthropology undergraduate in Scotland, and I really feel this wall of liberal and humanistic thought that seems to pervade most of my peers and professors. It is fairly interesting to play around with these ‘charged’ words and feel what is discourse and its’ totalitarian nature. What made me laugh out loud in public was your expression, which went something like ‘I can’t imagine, if a kid who wants to do a piece on Foucault and discovers Counter Currents..’ – because it described me. It makes me want to work more and try to carve a niche for more new right thought in the anthropological academia, at least UK. It takes prudence, patience and self-mastery to not alienate myself from my peers, while slowly starting a discussion on relevant topics. I will definitely follow your work in the future, for inspiration and new thought, while at the same time getting myself through all the great literature first hand.
Do not despair, there are young who will follow our goals, even in academic circles.
Thank you for putting this website together and dedicating your life to a noble quest.
Thank you for your kind words. I hope I can make something of my “public position” that is worthy of scholars like you. Sometimes I wish I was in the academy, being patient and prudent, as you put it. Alas, I tend to just tune everyone out and disengage with living (liberal) humans; using Nietzsche as colleague and only friend. At least this way I might give voice to you and others in the academy (and even take a proverbial bullet now and then). While I’ve been writing mostly essays, I am now writing academic pieces; and should have a book out next year (I hope).
If I can be of assistance feel free to contact me. I’ll send you my email address, if you don’t already have it.
I’m an undergrad in the U.S. and I visited Rome this summer while reading Evola.
Out of curiosity, what is your opinion of Julius Evola as a thinker? I think he takes the Nietzschean project to its proper conclusion (unlike Heidegger or Foucault) by introducing the idea of transcendence in the absolute sense.
Has Evola opened your mind to metaphysics or the supernatural? … the existence of Atlantis?
