How to Travel from Budapest to Lviv by Train

Train travel in Europe is usually pretty easy, and there’s no place where it’s easier than in Budapest, which is one of the hubs of Europe’s railway networks. That is, unless you’re going to Ukraine. For some reason, train tickets between Hungary and Ukraine cannot be purchased online, either from MÁV or Ukrainian Railways. It gets […]

Brief Thoughts on Living in Budapest, Hungary

Last Thursday, after navigating the twin threats of American land-based public transportation and surly Russian airport employees, I arrived in Budapest, Hungary. It might just be the fact that I was elated to get out of the deteriorating cesspits known as Chicago and New York, but it’s wonderful here and I don’t want to leave. […]

Matt Forney’s Favorite Terror House Magazine Submissions of 2018

While I ordinarily do a year-end roundup of my favorite blog posts, articles, podcasts, and other things I’ve done, because I’ve shifted into working as a publisher and live stream host, I no longer write as much as I used to. Much of my energy has been focused on building up Terror House Magazine and Terror House […]

A Requiem for Milo Yiannopoulos

I want to like Milo Yiannopoulos. I really do. Milo’s work as a journalist and provocateur is a big reason why nationalism and the dissident right have made the strides that they have. He was the first major journalist to give a fair shake to GamerGate, and his outspoken support for Donald Trump when he […]

Belgrade is the country’s capital, situated further south along the Danube River and an eight-hour train ride from Budapest. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, so here are my observations on the trip… 1. […]

Statement on Greg Johnson, Counter-Currents, and My Disassociation with the Alt-Right

Over the weekend, a conflict erupted between Daniel Friberg of Arktos and Greg Johnson and John Morgan of Counter-Currents Publishing. Arktos’ staffers published an article at AltRight.com revealing how Johnson and Morgan attempted to destroy Arktos through a coup involving the company’s shareholders. I’m involved in the conflict due to the fact that I’m a personal friend of […]

Thoughts on Visiting Győr, Hungary

I recently had the opportunity to visit Győr, a small city in northwestern Hungary about midway between Budapest and Vienna. Győr is best known for the Battle of Raab (its former German name) in 1809, where Napoleon’s armies defeated a combined Austrian and Hungarian force during the War of the Fifth Coalition. The French victory at Győr […]

Thoughts on Visiting Lviv, Ukraine

Last week, I was required to leave Hungary temporarily and had to pick a city to visit while I was away. I settled on Lviv, Ukraine, a small tourist city located a stone’s throw from the border with Poland. While I’d originally intended only to visit for a couple days, I enjoyed Lviv so much that […]

Raoul Vaneigem Selected Works 1962-1979 by Raoul Vaneigem

Have you ever wondered why all economic systems end up in the same place? Communism, capitalism, libertarianism, social democracy, Falangism, feminism; at the end of the day, barely anything distinguishes them, at least if you’re one of the proles, the poor, unlucky bastards stuck shoveling the coal or picking the cotton. Whether it was the […]
