The Human Type Required for Martial Peoples
There is an old essay on RESAVAGER, called “The Human Type Required for the Warrior Religion,” and it reflects some of the early thought in the project. The purpose of this one is a little different. It runs closer to the heart, closer to reality. What is the human type required for the prosperity of a martial people? What’s required of the humans of a martial people? What does it take to hold onto it? Now I say humans, instead of just men because women share a part.
A saying I have written often is: the brotherhood of armed men is the franchise. It’s the foundation of any people. I hold to that, but as almost everything on this earth, there’s more to the story. If the war band represents the franchise and foundation to a people, the FAMILY is the franchise and foundation to the warrior. Much of the most meaningful work you could be doing for your people right now is foundation building. If you have the reach to influence more than this, you absolutely should do so, but for most our people, the path is rebuilding the foundation forged by our ancestors. Now I may be accused of being called trad after this, but I think these steps are VITAL to man and the development of martial peoples.
There are many on the right who long for the return of piracy and the mannerbund. The reality is that the world has grown infinitely more complex the longer mankind lives on this earth and it will continue to become harder. That puts the onus on you to always strive to be stronger. Strive for superiority over your enemies. Life itself is the climb up the mountain of power. And when if you can reach the top, it’s beating anyone who comes to take a shot at the king. This is what life is and what it always will be.
