Sympathy for the Devil in Cologne

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

Trump, Borders and Masculinity

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

The Solution We Do Not Want

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

Stop Complaining – Life Isn’t Fair

“Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”
― H.L. Mencken

There’s a lot of cry-baby, defeatist behaviour among the various strands of the right. We are supposed to be the antithesis of the left and their Enlightenment notions. We are warriors. We conquered the world. Yet there are a many among the right who speak and act like victims.

The most abiding lesson my father taught me when I was growing up was that life isn’t fair. He’d tell it to me again and again until I understood. Problems do not go away by themselves. Crying solves nothing. Life isn’t fair. You’re supposed to learn this reactionary nugget of information early on in life. Continue reading Stop Complaining – Life Isn’t Fair

I Was A Conservative Once

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.

The Legion and Women

A common theme in ‘the manosphere’ is the idea of the pedestal. That is, the idea that men place women on a pedestal, and in the case of modern women, it is a pedestal that they do not deserve.

The Legionary view of women is that they are the bearers of the next generation. They carry within them the miracle of life. The future of the European nations lies in the wombs of our women. The modern woman has been led away from and tradition and motherhood in one of the greatest but saddest con-tricks in history. But how do we square this traditional view of women with the real world?

The Real Consequences Of Women In The Military

Originally published here at Return of Kings.

Just like every other bastion of tradition and masculinity, the military is under attack by the forces of progressivism. The military is by its very nature masculine, hierarchical, and undemocratic, as it must be to succeed in its core business of engaging with and killing the enemy. This also makes it a target.
