20 of 22 people found the following review helpful By West Coast White Nationalist on October 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is an ideal introduction to White Nationalism, particularly if you are somewhat socially liberal.

Greg Johnson's CONFESSIONS OF A RELUCTANT HATER really speaks to me, particularly his essay "West Coast White Nationalism." I am a racially aware white Californian, a White Nationalist.

YET, for all that, I am a West Coast person, with everything that goes along with that: I am a vegan, an environmentalist, a social liberal, a strong advocate of zoning and historical preservation, and a practicing Buddhist. Aside from my political concerns, I have very little in common with Southerners or Midwesterners or New Englanders, bless them, particularly the right wingers.

So I am glad to see that there are other people who realize that white identity politics needs to grow beyond the confines of the cultural and political right if we are to attain intellectual and political hegemony.

Some of the best articles here are "Confessions of a Reluctant Hater," about why diversity leads to racial hatred and strife; "A Nation of Immigrants?," which destroys that cliche; the reviews of Craig Bodeker's A Conversation About Race films; a great review of Christian Lander's sequel to STUFF WHITE PEOPLE LIKE; the already mentioned "West-Coast White Nationalism" (how do I meet the woman whose favorite books are MEIN KAMPF and THE LORD OF THE RINGS?); "Is Racial Purism Decadent?," which has to be the most intellectually challenging critique of racial purism ever written--and it took a White Nationalist to write it!; and two brilliant essays on Alan Watts, one of my favorite writers and, it turns out, a man of the right!

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By HansHans on October 6, 2011
Format: Paperback
The 8-page title essay in this collection is worth buying the book as a whole. The author confronts the inherent problem of multiculturalism: the inevitable conflict it creates. He memorably describes a Polynesian family that moves in next door. At first he is ambivalent towards them but as the two very different cultures coexist "they even made a hater out of a nice guy like me".

Format: Hardcover
"Robert Frost once brilliantly described a liberal as a man who will not take his own side in a fight" (page 31).

I must admit to being an admirer of the author Greg Johnson's idealism and willingness to take the ultimate stand for his own people, so the book-review will be slightly biased (but then again, show me where non-partisanship exists today, for I can't see it). Known as the editor-in-chief of popular on-line encyclopaedia of common sense critical perspectives of Modernity, Counter-Currents Publishing, Ph.D. Greg Johnson, has also edited a plethora of books, translations, pod-casts and videos, among others On Being a Pagan, Taking Our Own Side and much else. This particular volume is a collection of articles mostly written during 2000-2010 and published in various venues of opinion, both printed and on-line. There are a few flaws in the book (which we'll discuss imminently) and there's a lot of good to be said on its behalf. I must admit to reacting somewhat negatively of the coarse tone used from time to time, not meaning that Johnson is a low-brow writer (he's one of the most brilliant thinkers I know of), but one can sense that his thinking has evolved immensely from some of his earlier essays. In a sense, that is positive, though, for it shows his development as both a philosopher and a writer.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Alexander Wolfe-Murray on October 6, 2011
Format: Paperback
When I first picked up my copy of Greg Johnson's Confessions of a Reluctant Hater I was half expecting a written version of a nerdy Kirk Douglas from the 1993 drama, Falling Down, and was not disappointed with the collection of essays struggling to understand what happened to the world's favorite country - America (Come on. I'm the bad guy?). The author does not deny "that white people can be obnoxious" but is equally firm that "multiracial societies cause racial hatred" although he never quite says why he is living proof of that. Perhaps like William 'D-Fens' Foster in Falling Down, he was just trying to get home and being confronted by many obstacles he tackled them all one by one. The author stood his ground to face today's alpha ethnic group - the one that cannot be named - and in the spirit of "In America where we have the right to freedom of speech" and "the right to disagree," he goes on to tackle today's unpopular subjects. I would not only recommend the book for anyone confused with today's hurly-burly of change but I would suggest watching Falling Down beforehand in order to get in the spirit of the thing. But whatever you decide to do, don't ask Greg for his briefcase!
