A Brotherhood for the Modern Age

There are times when a man can be alone, and happy with his own company. Study, contemplation, writing and creative pursuits are all things that are often better done alone. However, when roaming the ruins that are the modern wasteland it is often better that the militant traditionalist has a brother in arms at his side. Wing man, battle buddy, oppo, call it what you like but we can all benefit from having a brother watching our backs.

The first advantage of a brother militant is purely physical. With a brother in arms you have somebody to watch your back. You have another pair of eyes to spot trouble before it arrives and he brings another gun, knife or pair of hands to the fight when it comes. And it’s coming.

The Modern Landscape

The ruins of the modern world are a dangerous place, especially in the cities. The modern Western city has largely been abandoned by us, the people who built them, and is now infested with the imported ethnic underclass preferred by our governments. Western cities are ugly deathtraps, what little beautiful medieval architecture that remains is dominated by the Brutalist concrete monstrosities that sprang up in the 1950s and 60s. The Brutalist style with its massive, grey, square buildings was a deliberate attempt by the socialists of that era to impose themselves and their ideology on the city, drown out the beauty of the ancient buildings and demoralise the people living there. They were essentially inside-out prisons.

The Brutalist style was designed to convey an image not just of domination, but of the immortality of modernity and socialism and its constant forward progress. How can one develop the correct mindset to revolt against the modern world if one is forever surrounded by square concrete slabs instead of the buildings made by our ancestors?


The modern city is designed to depress you into conformity, and offers you endless distractions to provide false comfort and lead you astray. Even a man with the strongest will can find himself dejected when living alone in our ugly and overcrowded cities. Many men start on the journey of questioning the world around them, but eventually become frustrated by the endless concrete and the ugly problems that congregate in our cities and they escape into its poisoned fruits: junk food, drink, drugs, sex and pornography, television and other frivolous entertainment. Many men try to fight modernity alone but become demoralised and give up, only to eventually fall into its clutches. These young men and women know that there is something deeply wrong with the modern world, but trapped in the midst of it, they eventually succumb to it.

If you gaze long enough into the concrete, the concrete gazes also into you.

A Band of Brothers

You cannot fight modernity alone. A brother in arms and spirit will help to keep you from falling to these distractions or becoming overwhelmed by the task at hand. A brother will remind you of the goal and help you stay on the path. When depression, frustration and fatigue appear a brother can galvanise you into action.

A brother will push you physically, to work harder in the gym and become stronger and leaner and to eat in a manner which produces a strong and healthy body and mind. When you are tired, demoralised or prone to temptation, your brother will be there to encourage you and keep you from the television and junk food that weakens us. When conflict comes, as it surely will, we are safer together, and we are emboldened by numbers. With strength in numbers we gain momentum, become more audacious and can seize the initiative.

A brother in arms helps us to police ourselves, our thoughts and actions. It is too easy when alone to allow ourselves to drift into the modern world. The modern world provides no moral guidelines, no spiritual direction, no traditional identity. The modern world only tells us to just be ourselves, and above us, just do what makes you feel good. With a brother at our side we will find the strength to resist and overcome the enemy and his subversive message. Do not just be yourself; improve yourself. Do not do what makes you feel good; do what is right.

We are poor judges of ourselves. In isolation, it is easy to dismiss our vices and weaknesses as trivial. With a companion watching out for us we will pay closer attention to our thoughts and actions. We can deceive ourselves, but not our fellow man. Being in the company of other men causes us to strive to better ourselves, partly through competition, partly through a shared identity and goal.

Brotherhood in the Age of Iron

happy new year

A man, even the Hyperborean superman we are building, is not a community on his own. A man on his own is easily surrounded and cut off from support. He is easily defeated. Two men can support each other. Two men can become much more by working together than they could be working separately. Two men can achieve far more by acting in unison. Two men are the beginnings of a community, and an operative unit. Men working together project strength and unity and a common identity.

We must fight the dispersal of our people and the atomisation of our society. We must draw together. As we do so we will generate an energy and a gravity which will draw yet more people towards us. People bet on the strong horse and people are drawn to strong communities, and it starts by finding our brothers in arms.

We need to form friendships with men. There are other men out there that think like us. Many more are deeply troubled by the modern world but do not know why or what to do about it because they are alone and lost in the modern world. Go out there and find them. We are the vanguard. Make a commitment to go out there and find one. Maybe he is already a friend. Maybe it is that man you strike up a conversation with when he expresses his disgust about politics, immigration or unemployment. Maybe he is a fully awakened traditionalist, maybe he needs guiding from a position of anger and frustration by a mentor.

Spend time together. Eat, work out, spend time outdoors pursuing masculine endeavours. Create male spaces; the enemy hates that. Cultivate a real life friendship of brothers and comrades, not a virtual one of idle internet chitchat. Support each other and grow as men and militant traditionalists. The modern world is at war with us. We need to regroup and fight back.

Find your brother in arms.

  1. I wish I had more of a brotherhood of this sort, it something I need to try and cultivate more.
    I have three brothers and a couple of friends who are either fully or in part a least sympathetic to these sort of views , yet less willing to commit more time to them.

    We all live in the west Yorkshire area of England, where the prognosis for decay is well advanced, despite it being a heavily populated area , finding people who sympathise is quite easy, when they feel they can let their hair down, but , any kind of commitment is another story, the brotherhood is most definitely missing.

    1. Paul, that is what we are here for. Yorkshire is a lovely part of England, it is a shame what has happened to it recently, and I know a lot of Yorkshiremen who feel the same as you and I. If I may, I will email you so we can discuss some of the things we have planned to make this brotherhood happen.

    2. I sympathise completely, and it’s something I feel very consciously is missing from my own life. I joined the British Army Reserve hoping to find a level of brotherhood and positive masculinity, but so far it hasn’t quite lived up to expectations. I run a business as a civilian in the tech industry, and most of the time it has me climbing the walls. As a young man, it is incredibly hard to find like minded men looking for constructive outlets for their masculine energy. To even talk about it in most circles would see you derided, and amongst those who don’t find it altogether absurd, most lack either the will-to-action, or are too worn down with the treadmill of working to cover bills and expenses, and the idea of ‘progressing with their career’ that they can’t even contemplate anything different.

      1. I know the feelings. I’ve done my time in the military and civilian jobs. The modern world is toxic to developing relationships of any sort. It is too busy, too safe and sanitised, but with plenty of tame distractions. Most people are shackled with debt as soon as they’re an adult, and then they’re locked into the treadmill until they retire. A cynical man might think this had been done deliberately…

        We’re missing something primal – the hunt, conquering the mountain, building something with our bare hands and then sitting around the fire when it is all done. There’s a certain equality in this. Not the modern, artificial equality, but the equality of tribal membership, a shared identity, and overcoming adversity together – brothers in arms. This is what we are going to get back to.

        The biggest reason I’m glad I started this blog is realising just how many other men feel exactly the same, from all around the world. If we could get all of the men together in one place facing the enemy… we’d be a scourge upon the modern world.

      2. I can understand the drudgery of working to pay the bills all too well, it bothers me though that so many don’t yearn for something a little more real and alive than just existing

  2. “If we could get all of the men together in one place facing the enemy… we’d be a scourge upon the modern world…”

    If you got all of these men together in one place the rest of the world would fall apart – these are the men holding up whats left of the world on their bruised backs and ripped shoulders… you wont even have to fight… just slip away in the night… and watch it fall apart from a distance and return to finish them off while they are scratching in the dirt for something to eat… and burning their clothes for heat… and huddling in the dark to avoid the rape gangs – for all the productive men have gone… all the men that protected them have vanished… the men that tilled the ground… the men that worked the machines that powered the cities… and kept the utilities on… the men that drove the economies…

    1. Like a bloodless coup, but in reverse. All the undesirables, we want to cast them into the wastes and exclude them from civilization, but we can’t. What many don’t yet realize is that we ARE civilization. We leave, and civilization leaves with us. We simply get up and leave. Those who wish to come with us, accept our laws, will come with us. Those who do not want to accept our laws and way of life, they can stay where they are. And they can watch civilization crumble around them, their cities shut down, the power goes out, the shops are empty, gangs prowling in the dark. Some will come to us in desperation. They will beg to come in, those who called us medieval barbarians will knock on our door and ask us to save them. They chose burning cities over racism, so they can keep them. The castle door will remain closed.

  3. Canadian here. We are on the same road, although not as far down it as you in England and Europe, but we are headed there soon enough.
    I, too, joined the Army in part to develop brotherhoods, and succeeded in part, but even there the political correctness and weakness (especially at all command positions) is appalling.
    And the constant political decisions to sacrifice men’s lives to pathetic ROE’s to attempt appeasing an insatiable enemy made it unbearable to stay in any longer.

    Cool blog, although I don’t agree 100% with everything you are saying, but generally I support what you are saying. The #1 enemies (I consider them a tie) are Islam, and Progressivism/Leftism/Marxism/Comunism/whatever-they-are-calling-themselves-this-week.
    Remember, though, that there are white Muslims and Leftists, and black/Arab/Chinese/etc. Christians.

    The non-white Christians know better than anyone else that Islam is the enemy, as they have fist hand experience with its horrors and evils. The same goes for many Jews. They can be our allies. We should not write them off.

  4. We are well down that road here in Melbourne Australia too. It is in your face everywhere. It really is WW3. So hard to find brothers though. We are all so cut off already from the land of the living.

  5. I have no brothers, no friends either, only acquaintances. Many of whom are sympathetic with my deeply held beliefs. Forming cadres of like-minded men leads to cohorts leads to companies leads to armies. Amen to that. This coming (here now) war needs to start from the bottom up, because the top is either in denial or is culpable in giving support to those who wish to destroy us. It is not only Islam which has us in their sights, what of the UN? SJWs, Common Purpose, JC himself (Jeremy Corbyn), the Groan Party, various Clintons and Bushes, not to mention various Bliars and Kinnochios. Is Israel – the house of Zion – any more of a friend to us, you, than when they supported our enemies in the past? Lines need to be drawn, where should a Christian draw his lines? Where should we fight our battle, and against whom? So many enemies, so few weapons.
