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 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
This series on defining masculinity looks at heroic masculine archetypes from history so that we can become the heroes worthy of our ancestors. Part One covered bravery. Here we will discuss heroic strength.
Sun Tzu’s Art of War states that the victorious warrior seeks to win first, then goes to war. Defeated men go to war first, and then seek to claw victory from the Continue reading Defining Masculinity Part Two: Heroic Strength
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
Traditions are the beautiful rituals and artefacts of our ancestors, handed down from one generation to the next. As a society grows and consolidates they accrete layers of tradition and ritual. The failures are discarded and the successes are retained. They build up within and around a society like the fibres of a tapestry. Tradition and ritual define who we are as a people, and in doing so protect us. Continue reading The Value of Tradition
For as long as there have been men, there have been men trying to define masculinity. If it needs to be defined then it exists and it means something. Being a man has meaning. It has an aim and a purpose.
Modernism’s Attack On Masculinity
We do not subscribe to the modernist lie that all men are equal. We believe that every man can improve and every man can be valuable to society, but we are not equal. Continue reading Defining Masculinity Part One: Courage
Winter has turned to spring here, but as is always the way here in England, spring is a fickle and shy young girl and the old man of winter is reluctant to relax his grip.
The other day I was sitting outside, enjoying a coffee in the stiff breeze and the weak early sun, and watching a scene that was heartwarming, but at the same tinged with a bitter sadness. Continue reading Immigration Is A Weapon Of War Wielded By The Left
The Parallels Between Islam and The Left
With Elton John’s attempt to rouse a boycott against Dolce and Gabbana we see yet again the similarities between the gay lobby, its parent, the wider leftist movement, and Islam.

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.
