My latest book, Becoming a Barbarian, is now finally available in audiobook form through Audible, Amazon and iTunes. (iTunes is lagging, but should follow within the next few days.)
I put many hours into this project and invested in some new recording equipment, so I think you will find that the levels of both quality and the performance have improved since the audiobook edition of The Way of Men was released in 2015. I have also always felt that this book will be more enjoyable

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. The Only Way Forward Is Upward. Wolves of Vinland Announce Space Program.
Cascadian Bioregion, Earth — The controversial pagan cult known as “The Wolves of Vinland” announced today that they will be taking their ongoing spiritual war on the Blank Empire to space. On December 2nd, Paul Waggener, aka “Grimnir,” responded to claims made Friday by the New York Tim
Translated by Soul Guerrilla. Originals found here and here. LA VIOLENCIA VALE SU PESO EN ORO
A mucha gente le gusta pensar que son pacíficos. Por lo general la gente afirma aborrecer el uso de la violencia y la violencia se ve como algo negativo por la mayoría. Muchos fallan en diferenciar entre violencia necesaria e innecesaria. Justa e injusta. Algunos pomposos y pagados de sí mismos quieren pensar que están por encima de la desagradable y violenta cultu
I don’t just write the words you need to hear. I write what I need to hear, too.
I’ve been doing a lot of MMA training lately — clocked in 7 hours last week. I’ve been training for a couple of years now, but mostly boxing, and mostly with pads. I’d had maybe ten serious sparring sessions total, including two or three matches with other members of the Wolves.
At this point, sparring is what I need. I need to shorten my reaction time and learn how to apply all of the theo
Don’t kill your ego. Sacrifice Yourself To Yourself.
Bruce Lee wrote that: “Punches and kicks are tools to kill the ego.”
It sounds like mountaintop mysticism, like some far-out, far-eastern form of overdubbed, white-bearded enigmatic enlightenment.
It’s become a training cliche. Whether you are training with weapons or weights, someone will eventually tell you that your ego is your enemy.
The problem with that is, your ego is also — you.
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.”

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
On Sebastian Junger’s “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging”
An audio presentation of this essay is available below, recorded as STW Episode #17.
In his new book, Tribe, Sebastian Junger attempts to expand on one of the most daringly alert and off-message observations made in his 2010 book, War.
War is generally portrayed as a terrible experience which must be endured, but no one is supposed to like it. While talking to soldiers who served in Afghanistan and other
Several readers have asked about the meaning of the Conflict Bindrune that appears on the back cover of Becoming a Barbarian.
In the opening chapter of Becoming a Barbarian, I made the point (as I have in several other essays and speeches) that masculinity is action-oriented. Masculinity reaches its most perfect form in life-or-death conflict — in a battle between the individual man and the natural world, which includes other men. This does not mean that there are no othe
