Are you a Son of Mars?
In our sphere, there is powerful reverence of the Grek, and for good reason. They were a great race. We remember them through their writing and art left behind. A people with great aesthetics and warlike nature. We are not, however, the Greks. We have a different nature. We have different problems. It is very important to study Homer and Pindar, would not try to dissuade anyone from doing otherwise.
The predicament we’ve inherited from our fathers, however, better matches the struggles of the Romans, both during the Republic and the Empire. What’s before us? Our corrupt “leaders” letting the third world pour into our homeland so they can get better profits from their sheep shearing operation. What does this mean? It means Americans face corruption from above and hordes from below. The type of character to meet this dual-threat is best embodied by the Roman of the Republic period.
Why would you do better to study the Roman? It’s no accident that the founding fathers modeled the United States after the Roman Republic. This modeling, in a way, has made us the spiritual successors of Rome. Dirty leftist academics have spent decades trying to convince us that our ancestors were uneducated bigots. Had they had our liberal education, they would not be racists. I ask you to read letters from Americans of the early period. They were more well-written, well-informed and better-bred than we are today.
Maybe they didn’t have access to all the classics. In some cases, all they had was the Bible. But their denomination of Christianity demanded they know how to read so that they may read the word of God for themselves, to debate it with their peers so together, they could better understand how they were to serve as God’s new chosen people. That’s RIGHT. Our forefathers believed themselves CHOSEN. There were no phones so writing letters was how the cool kids communicated. A people forced back into nature, they adapted to a harsh environment. The 2nd Amendment exists so fathers could teach their sons marksmanship both for hunting and for fighting off Indian raids. The first Americans learned how to do what the Indians did, but better.
This situation was not unlike the Romans. The Romans were distinct from the Greks. Many believe they were the survivors of Troy who found a new home in Italy. What kind of effect would losing the Trojan War have on a people? You see it in the character of the Roman. The Greks would flee if something wasn’t going their way, believing The Gods were favoring the other side. They wouldn’t find shame in this.
The Romans on the other hand, would not flee. They would rather die fighting. A boast of Roman legionnaires was they would never be found dead by wounds to the back. Their wounds were all to the front of the body because they never retreated. They refused to surrender. They would not lose Troy again. It showed in how the Romans fought wars. No matter how many legions they lost, they would not admit defeat in war. “The vanquished is not defeated if he doesn’t think himself so,” was a saying of Ennius concerning the Roman way.
The Romans were men of war, but to be men of war, they also had to be men of the state.
Now, whether or not the Romans are descended from Troy is up to debate. Their known history is explanation enough for why the Romans acted as they did. The founders of Rome — the terrible brothers, the sons of Mars himself, raised in the wild by the She-Wolf — made a state surrounded by enemies. Romulus had to use war to secure the survival of Rome. Later on, the Romans dealt with barbarian tribes encroaching on their borders and the borders of their allies. They had to fight.
To be a man of war is also to be a man of the state. Many philosophers, Nietzsche included, have said that the PURPOSE of the state, the Raison D’Etre for why it exists in the first place is the carrying out of WAR. The state exists for war. To protect the sovereignty of the people within it. To not be concerned with the state, yet choose to be a man of war, is to make yourself no better than a slave. To put your life in the hands of someone else. The Romans understood this which is why they were as concerned with politics as they were with war.
The senators, the men elected for consulships, were both warriors and politicians. Unlike our “brave” politicians today, they fought in Rome’s wars. They served in the legions into old age. Senators and consuls died in battles. Like all men, they desired glory and honor. But they did not neglect politics. They didn’t opt out of the game. Politics was their means of acquiring the opportunity for glory and honor.
Sure, they did not have a ruling elite that hated them. It’s not an apple-to-apple comparison. But the political struggles got ugly just the same. The Greks were also extremely active in politics, so if you do prefer them, you should also take in this wisdom. You cannot opt out of the game. You have to fight. What does this look like?
The major debates of the modern “RW” are whether or not you should leave the city to go to a based rural state and whether or not you should skip college to be a plumber. To flee is to surrender ground to your enemies. To choose the trades is to surrender power to your enemies. If you are TRUE about your desire to defeat the left, how are you going to gain ground by running and surrendering power? You’re passing the buck to your children as our fathers did to us. How are you going to convince your children to do what you didn’t dare to do? From a completely outside perspective, why would you surrender the strongest empire in the world to the people who hate you?
No, you have to fight. You have to assault the entrenched positions. You have to assault the points they are trying to repel you the hardest. It’s nothing pretty or sexy. They’ve made it known they don’t want to see Anglo-Saxons anywhere. You have to step aside for poc.
Sons of Mars
The Romans believed themselves the sons of Mars. Men of war and to master war as they did, they had to be masters of statecraft. Most of the writings of Cicero and other Romans concerned first and foremost, politics in Rome. They were a people raised in the wilderness by the She-Wolf to become the most noble and warlike empire we have ever seen on this earth. Every people since have been trying to become them. To prove themselves better.
If you care about triumphing over the kingdom of darkness, you have to attack. You don’t win by running. The hordes are invading our borders and our “Patricians” are flying them all over the country. It’s time for you to become a new Patrician. A new generation of American Fathers is required. It ain’t enough to just be opposed to this. You have to take action against it. To give your children a better chance.
This means attacking the enemy's strong points. They gate keep the areas they don’t want you to infiltrate. They would rather have you move to a rural state than become wealthy in their city. They would rather have you become a tradesman than earn a degree. It means they don’t have to worry about you. You’ve effectively removed yourself from the equation.
You have to fight. You have to wrestle back control of this empire, no matter how gay you think it’s become. It’s still an empire that rules over this earth. The right men can fix its image. Your job, your purpose in this spiritual war, is to do what the enemy doesn’t want you to do. They want you to disappear. You cannot disappear. You must have sons to carry on your name and war.
They want you poor and powerless. You have to strive for excellence. Strive for wealth and power. That means going to college to get the paper that will allow you into better opportunities to provide for your family. That means serving in the military to pick up the necessary skills and credibility to speak on these issues. They are not sexy courses of action, but they are necessary nonetheless. You want them to remember that we are still here and that they will pay for what they have done to us.
To do that, you must fight. You have to fight these unsexy battles. To crush down the enemy barricades so that your children aren’t left in the position you were left in. The state exists for war, so we must take the state to prove our worth before the world and God. You have to join the military, get an education, and fight for political power. There’s all the opportunity in the world for this. Look at how corrupt and old the current stock of politicians is. Make yourself a force of nature and prove yourself a son of Mars.
