No One Will Ever Make America Great Again

Donald Trump Isn’t Your Daddy, And He Can’t Fix What’s Broken In America

British journalist Milo Yiannopoulos frequently refers to Donald Trump as “daddy.”

Milo introduces himself as, “the most fabulous supervillain on the Internet,” so calling a Presidential candidate “daddy” is consistent with his own quirky brand of camp conservatism.

I don’t know of anyone else who calls Trump “daddy.” But when I see my peers caught up in stadium-style slave wave that is ready to crown a shifty, wheeling and dealing New York City businessman as America’s savior and “emperor god-king”…

…“daddy” does seem uncomfortably appropriate.

The incontinent progressive mainstream would have you imagine Donald the “daddy” as the paternal leader — or Führer, as they put it once upon a time in Deutschland. However, Donald Trump is no artist, and his vision for American Greatness seems to be far less grand, let alone “great.”

Becoming A Barbarian – Release Dates

I’ve just approved the digital proof of my new book, Becoming a Barbarian, and you will find semi-solid release dates below. Autographed copies are now available for pre-order through BRUTAL Company

BAB-cover-200x300Becoming a Barbarian is the true follow-up to the The Way of Men. However, Becoming a Barbarian isn’t specifically about masculinity.

Becoming a Barbarian won’t teach you how to swing a battle axe or crush your enemies (so that you can see them driven before you and hear the lamentation of their women).

After reading The Way of Men, all kinds of men all around the world wrote me asking how to start their own tribes. What I found in talking to them was that many weren’t mentally prepared to become part of a tribe.

How can you concentrate on crushing your enemies, when you’re still busy arguing with them as peers or trying to win their hearts and minds?

Becoming a Barbarian is an argument against moral universalism and an argument for drawing hard lines between your “us” and “them.” It’s an argument about changing the way you argue, the way you use resources, the way you evaluate others and the way you see modern governments. It’s about moving, mentally, out into a wilderness beyond the borders of the Empire.

Die neuen Barbaren (The New Barbarians – German Translation)

[Translated by Lars Peter Kronlob]

Der folgende Text ist eine Rede, die am 26. Oktober 2013 bei der 2. Konferenz des nationalen Politikinstituts am Ronald-Reagan-Gebäude in Washington, DC gehalten wurde.

Es könnte einen Kollaps geben. Es könnte passieren. Es könnte morgen passieren. Rachsüchtige Götter könnten Felsbrocken vom Himmel schleudern und die Erde mit Feuer und Fluten reinigen. Es könnte Blut und Zähneknirschen auf den Straßen geben. Eine Heuschreckenplage oder Killerbienen, irgendeine chinesische Grippe oder die Zombie-Apokalypse. Eure Kreditkarten könnten auslaufen und eure „Smart“-Phones könnten ziemlich dumm werden. Wir könnten gezwungen werden, uns in Banden zusammenzuschließen und ums Überleben zu kämpfen. Wir könnten von Umständen, die außerhalb unserer Kontrolle liegen, dazu gezwungen werden, Lebensweisen wiederzuentdecken, die unserer Spezies –  unseren Reptilienhirnen – vertrauter sind als diese endlose, banale Ausbreitung von Konzernanlagen und Einkaufszentren.

Oder ihr bekommt einfach diesen einen Tag als Löwe, um so zu sterben wie ihr geboren wurdet, strampelnd und schreiend und mit dem Blut von jemand anderem bedeckt.
