Why I’m an identitarian

RadixJournal.com is proud to announce its first annual essay contest for young writers!

The topic—Why I’m an Identitarian—is broad and can be addressed from a variety of perspectives. Essays could take into account culture, geopolitics, race and ethnicity, society, technology, and more. They could deal with the history or future political expression of European identity. Or they could discuss the writer’s personal journey to these ideals.

For ideas, writers are encouraged to read my “conversation starter” on Identitarianism.


The best essay will be awarded $500. The awardee will also be granted complimentary registration to NPI’s 2015 conference, Become Who We Are, and lodging in Washington, DC, for the weekend (October 30-November 1).

Three additional prizes of $100 will be awarded to essays of merit.
