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 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
The natural world is one of balance. When equilibrium is disturbed Nature takes corrective action to restore balance. Le Châtelier’s Principle states that when a system in equilibrium is subjected to a stress, the system will adjust in order to counteract that stress and a new equilibrium is achieved. Le Châtelier was concerned with chemistry, but his principle translates to a wider array of systems. Continue reading The Solution We Do Not Want
I was a conservative once. But today’s conservatives are no longer conservative. A word has entered the modern lexicon: conservakin. Those who identify as conservative, but who are not. They are conservative in name only, those who conserve only the status quo and the incremental victories of the left, those who ultimately have failed even to conserve conservatism itself. If they cannot even conserve their own principles, then they cannot be trusted to protect us and our civilisation. A newer, more humorous term has also emerged: cuckservative. Continue reading I Was A Conservative Once
The need for separation, on many levels, is clear. This is my outline for a system I call separation in place. It is my initial thoughts, and is far from the actual nuts and bolts of what would be required to enact it, however even this basic outline runs to over three thousand words as it is, so make yourself comfortable and take as long as you need. Continue reading Separation In Place
I am a man who is vehemently opposed to feminism and I think it is a poisonous ideology, but I am not one of the modern men’s rights activists. Modern man also has many failings that cannot be fixed by more laws and rights. Both of the sexes are in a sorry, broken state but I believe that they can be repaired, and here at The Iron Legion we are going to do exactly that. We are men. We do not complain. We overcome. We build.

Early Human Relationships
In the twilight dawn of human history, less civilised times than now, most women had children but most men never got to pass on their genes. 8,000 years ago, seventeen women reproduced for every one man. Further back into our savage prehistory the story is the same. Reproduction was the preserve of the truly elite alpha men, the tribal chiefs and the big dogs, who held a cast-iron monopoly on their women.
