The historic course of all civilisations is cyclic in nature. Over a period of three to four hundred years on average all of them return to a similar common starting point, a point always defined by a darkness of the collective soul and a loss of moral fortitude. It is there and then that an inevitable movement for a return to old ways and meanings begins to form.
Imagine if you will a civilisation’s chronological pendulum completing a vertical ellipse rather than just an arc at the bottom. At the superior apogee, twelve Noon in the cycle, the pendulum almost pauses at a point of stability before beginning its inevitable descent, accelerating slowly at first, even imperceptibly, but ever faster as the gravity of cultural entropy increases its velocity until it approaches the inferior apogee, Midnight, where then it begins its at first rapid but ever slowing climb back into the light.

The Return of Kings international meetups were cancelled after a media shitstorm that blew up over false and hysterical claims that Roosh is an advocate of legal rape and that the meetings were international rape committees.
It centered on an article that Roosh wrote titled ‘How to Stop Rape’ that was wilfully misinterpreted by the media. The title is a clue right away that the thrust of the article is about stopping rape, not promoting it. You can read the whole thing here and decide for yourself.

UPDATE: This third party event has been cancelled by the organisers. More details to follow.
I have long advocated for reactionary men to get together and form brotherhoods and warrior fraternities in order to survive the modern world. It’s telling that the only real pushback against the third world invasion of the West has come from football hooligans and motorcycle gangs – counter-cultural fraternities which exist outside of polite society and have their own codes of honour and personal loyalty.

Note: Shelley was an atheist and prototypical social justice warrior, emerging in the wake of the French Revolution. However much has changed since Shelley’s days. The Enlightenment has done its work, in as much as the perpetual revolution of the left can ever be completed, and the world order has since become entirely inverted.
The working man, pulled this way and that by politics, is no better off because of it, and is now seeing the very soul of his nation taken from him. The capitalist oligarchy and the international socialists behind it are now the ones who disguise themselves as Bishop and Lord. It is money and the left who proclaim themselves God and King and Law. This is the new procession of masked villains that must be smashed. Continue reading The Mask of Anarchy
We are all supposed to be feeling pity and outrage for the girls of Cologne. But we are only allowed to be sorry and angry in the right way. The wrong way is to mention that the attackers were a mystery meat conglomeration of basketballs and kebabs. That would be horribly racist of you. And the gothic majesty of Cologne’s High Cathedral of Saints Peter and Mary, home to a 13th century reliquary and site of Catholic Pilgrimage, pelted with fireworks by Muslims, but secular modernity does not care about that. The events of Cologne have been co-opted as a women’s rights issue. Continue reading Sympathy for the Devil in Cologne
A man in America makes the sensible suggestion that a nation should control who lives within its borders. Leftists around the world cry, shake and audibly fill their delicate underwear. Although I am thoroughly anti-democratic, watching the Trump Train gather up a head of steam is a lot of fun to watch. Continue reading Trump, Borders and Masculinity
This is intended somewhat as an addendum to the previous post, Meditating on Death, one with a distinctly medieval Catholic perspective. What follows below is an excerpt from a letter written by a Cistercian Abbot, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, to Hugh de Payens, founder and first Master of the Knights Templar.
It was written in the early 12th century, some time after the founding of the Order and is set against the backdrop of violent Islamic incursion into Western lands and the defence of Holy Europe by Christian military orders, most of which began as small, independent warrior fraternities long before they received royal and Papal recognition. Continue reading In Defence of the New Knighthood
As I write this the sky is a flat grey. The last storm has cleared but the midday sun shines weaker and hangs lower every day. The nights are longer and colder. The new life of spring is still months away. Those who have worked hard and prepared themselves will survive to see it. The idle will be carried to their graves. There are few better analogies for the state of the Occident than winter.
Winter is a fitting moment to ponder our own mortality, but meditating on death is something we should do routinely, and incorporate into the rituals of the small and independent Reactionary brotherhoods we are forming. Continue reading Meditating on Death
The reaction to the latest Islamic terrorist attack in Paris has been utterly predictable. Politicians calling for unity and the unbreakable spirit of democracy. People castigating religion. Almost everybody missing the point, although some are slowly beginning to get it.
It’s clear now that Europe is now facing a series of converging crises: financial collapse, the struggle to meet energy demands, a corruption of morals, Islamic terrorism, a declining native population and a foreign invasion. These crises are now coming into focus so sharply as to be impossible to ignore. This is the shock of history that Dominique Venner predicted. Continue reading Reaction to the Paris Attacks
The decline of the West is not going to be announced by those in charge, not least because the state garners loyalty and obedience from its citizens by way of its ability to protect them and provide them with various rights and services, or at least having the appearance of being able to do so.
If the state cannot do this, or cannot maintain the facade, citizens will begin to question the benefit of remaining loyal and obedient to an already distrusted Continue reading The Retreat of the State
