Check out TOC’s brand trailer to see what we’re all about!

  • By: Timon Dias
  • It’s been a long time in the making lads, but here it is: the future of European online media. The Old Continent is designed to push back against the Social Justice and Identity Politics agenda of VICE, Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, while at the same time offering a centre right, more fun and light-hearted alternative to Breitbart’s and Infowars’ high octane polemics and conspiracies that don’t get anyone laid.

    Hannah Arendt’s Origins of Totalitarianism; Preparing men who believe everything is possible and nothing true, to be both executioner and victim

  • By: Lars Benthin
  • “The truth is that the masses grew out of the fragments of a highly atomized society whose competitive structure and concomitant loneliness of the individual had been held in check only through membership in a class. The chief characteristic of the mass man is not brutality and backwardness, but his isolation and lack of normal social relationships.”

    Heritage and embezzlement: EU spends millions on cheap plastic renovation of Bulgarian castle

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “Unfortunately, the builders used “alternative” materials for some of the restoration giving the restored fortress wall and gate a ‘plastic’ look. Thus, the restoration of the Krakra Fortress has become notorious among Bulgaria’s archaeological restorations, with critics claiming that the EU money was likely embezzled by local politicians and/or construction entrepreneurs who used cheap plastic instead of proper materials.”

    Porsche unveiled their new 911, the 992, and we’re all Germans now

  • By: Wolf
  • They pulled it off by designing a new car that’s essentially an evolution of their previous cars, aiming for the future without forgetting where it all started. And that’s no accident. Porsche knows all too well that when it overdoes changes to their designs (hello there 996), the loyal fan base gets up in arms, and no one likes angry Germans.

  • By: Willem Jan Hilderink
  • There are some characteristics that most if not all forms of identity politics share. These are 1) a peculiar relationship between the self and the collective, 2) a tendency to measure marginalisation, 3) a strong focus on the concept of power and 4) the lack of some utopian vision.

  • Fighting against Earth’s gravitational field, it put itself in orbit around the moon. Eventually, though frugal, SMART-1 ran out of fuel and was inextricably attracted by the Moon. So on 3 September 2006, it crashed, after successfully fulfilling its mission and remaining active beyond expectations.

    EU Ombudswoman publishes damning report on Juncker’s right hand Martin Selmayr’s appointment as highest civil servant. No-one cared

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “The Commission’s actions involved a manipulation of the rules governing senior management appointments so as to convey the impression that the appointment procedures, in the case of Mr Selmayr, were applied correctly and that the outcome, in turn, was fair and correct. In fact, this was not the case and the entire affair, starting in January 2018, if not earlier, was arranged to ensure the appointment of Mr Selmayr as Secretary-General.”
