The Tombstone of the American Empire

NOTE: This article was originally published at Right On on August 5, 2016. I’m re-posting it here as the site is now defunct. Dying nations are defined in part by their ability to delude themselves. The Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania is a case in point. Americans will do anything to deny the reality that they […]

Thoughts on Visiting Belgrade, Serbia

Last summer, I took a short trip to Belgrade, Serbia in order to get out of Hungary for a bit. 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. […]

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.

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 […]

Thoughts on Visiting Stockholm, Sweden

Two weeks ago, I delivered a speech to the Identitarian Ideas IX conference in Stockholm. While I didn’t get to explore the city as much as I would have liked (I was only there for two days, and I was busy with conference business), I got to see a decent cross-section of Stockholm and of […]
