Reawaken the Barbaric Spirit
If you live in America, you should be worried. American men have been completely pacified and dis-privileged. They’ve been taught to believe toxic masculinity is real, the future is female, and there are some forty other genders.
Americans have not yet been defeated at home. They have the massive advantage of being separated from the rest of the world by two oceans. But victory in the Second European Civil War defeated the American spirit. Most “Americans” today believe the greatest threat to the country is white Americans males.
American men however, have already been conquered. You can see it in their eyes and the softness of their bodies. They’re been made comfortable and compliant. Rampant mental illness, depression, and obesity are signs that these men know something is wrong in their soul, but the years of social conditioning by “experts” have convinced them all is right.
Times will have to get a lot harder for enough Americans to see what I see now and those hard times may still be a long way off. But if you wait forever the hard times, it may be too late.
Predicting the future is hard, but you can see the direction of the waves.
No one can say with accuracy what will happen when, nor is it worth your time. Anything that’s happening now however, likely happened before.
The answers are in the past. What were the men of powerful civilizations like? What did they do to get there? What did they believe? Figuring that out lays out a course. Teddy Roosevelt observed that when a nation’s men become soft and weak, some ruder people who didn’t forget their “virile fighting power” would bring about their downfall.
There was a point where most Americans believed in a concept called the end of history. The devastation of the nuclear age would prevent any serious outbreak of war. But history doesn’t end. The clock is still ticking. World powers are still maneuvering against each other while Americans remain blissfully unaware.
Robert E Howard asked, “When a nation forgets her skill in war, when her religion becomes a mockery, when the whole nation becomes a nation of money-grabbers, then the wild tribes, the barbarians drive in... Who will our invaders be? From whence will they come?”
The barbarians are coming. From where is anyone’s guess, but if you don’t want to get caught with your pants down, you had best become a barbarian first. America may be cracking down on dissent, but it’s still a massive country and a massive empire. You’ve got the room and privacy to make your plans come to life.
The Barbaric Spirit
Americans have forgotten the savage hardness of the colonists who settled in the United States and the frontiersmen who made manifest destiny a reality. You could not be weak and survive in early America. Life was dangerous and brutal, so too, the American man had to be dangerous and brutal.
The American type that conquered the United States is a type that’s echoed throughout history. It was first seen in the Greek tale of Hercules, a Neolithic hunter who ventured out into the chaotic, dark world to defeat chthonic mothers and made the world safe of mankind.
The Norse and other early European cultures believed in a striker god named Thor who shared many similarities to Hercules and his father Zeus. He went out to protect the perimeter, fighting giants and monsters.
Hercules and Thor were massive looking with rippling muscled and a savage spiritedness to fight. They inspired countless men throughout time to fight and protect their people from the forces of chaos.
Robert E Howard’s hero Conan the Barbarian is almost the next iteration of this archetype. Howard lived in the aftermath of the frontier and American Civil War. His beliefs came out in his writing and his most popular hero was Conan who was a massive barbarian.
Conan is a force of nature. In Howard’s works he fights sorcerers, beasts, and simian-like apes. He fights in battles, spends time pirating, and even being on an American-like frontier. He ultimately rises from a thief to capture the country of Aquilonia by strangling the the previous king at the foot of his throne.
When you read the Conan stories, you can get a glimpse of the powerful will to life that the barbarian possesses. It’s a savageness civilized men don’t have a concept of. Something Americans need to reawaken in themselves. It’s in the blood, your body hasn’t forgotten it.
You see the same savageness come out when you read about Hercules or Thor. It’s a part of being a man. Men were built to go to war. You must find this barbaric spirit again.
