This essay was originally published online in 2014, but it is no longer available. A reader recently requested a link, and I thought I’d re-share it. If you like this essay, I developed this theme in my book Becoming a Barbarian, which I personally believe is best in audiobook form.
(I’m not sure exactly what the Shoshana bit is all about. If I remember correctly, it was about some feminist walking around New York City complaining that men thought she was attractive, and sa
On a recent trip to Germany, my brothers Paul Waggener and Afi (who works with me at Brutal Company) drove to visit Opfermoor Vogtei, an Iron Age sacrificial bog in Thuringia. The site was used by various groups of heathens to make animal and human sacrifices to various Germanic male and female gods from the Hallstatt Period in 6th Century BCE (BC) through the Migration Age in the 5th Century CE (AD).

An interview with my bro from the Wolves of Vinland, Matthias Waggener about his new book, Love is Death in Your Veins — a transcontinental motorcycle travelogue exploring love, divorce and life on the road. We talked about the book, but also about leadership and building strong groups of men.
I’m also joined by my Brutal Company shipping guy, sparring partner and bro Afi, who didn’t end up saying too much this time but you should follow him on Instagram @afivolundr. (He used to
I’m pleased to announce that the full video recording of my speech at last year’s 21 Convention in Orlando, Florida is now available through 21 University. The title, “A More Complete Beast,” is a riff on a quote from Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil:
“At the commencement, the noble caste was always the barbarian caste : their superiority did not consist first of all in their physical, but in their psychical power—they were more complete men (which at every
In February 2017, my brother Afi and I performed a blood ritual at the center of the Sonnenobservatorium Goseck in Germany. The construction of the solar observatory there has been dated to approximately 4900 BC. We traveled home with a jar of soil from this site where ancient pagans left traces of ritual fires, animal bones and human remains, and we buried some of it inside our own altar or “Hargu” (drawing from unattested Proto-Germanic).
The cycles of the sun have been observe
The German translation of Becoming a Barbarian, titled Nur Barbaren können sich verteidigen is now available for order through my German publisher, Verlag Antaios. The title translates to “Only barbarians can defend themselves,” after a quote often attributed to Nietzsche.
At the request of Mark Weiner, I’m republishing this essay from 2014, “The Clan vs. Modern, State-Dependent ‘Individualism’,” dealing with many of the criticisms of Western individualism&nbs
After spending a week in Bavaria, I wanted to share some notes, photos and ideas.
I’m making some changes on my site. Since I don’t often comment on current events anymore to any depth — beyond some unintelligible Popeye-esque gibberish that one must assume is a string of disapproving obscenities — I’m returning to a more traditional blog model (to the extent that blogs can be considered “traditional.”) This site will be a public journal for updates, notes, photos and an
It’s been a little over two months since I took ownership of Waldgang. I’d like to thank the guys who keep buying books and merchandise from Brutal Company, because I sure haven’t done much in the way of writing or promotion since May 12. If you follow my Instagram, you’ve seen what we’ve been up to, but I sometimes forget that I have many readers who don’t use Instagram. I see what I am doing there as the ongoing fulfillment of everything I have written about in the past, so what I am d
I am not a White Nationalist.
I’m just not a spineless cuck who pisses his pants every time someone calls him a racist on Facebook. And I don’t let people who I have no respect for tell me who I’m allowed to support or call a friend.
Six years ago, before I ever spoke at an “Alt-Right” event or submitted an article to Alternative Right or Radix or Counter Currents, I wrote an essay titled, “Mighty White.” I stand by it to this day, and my views have chang
I’m pleased to announce that this fall I’ve agreed to speak at the 21 Convention in Orlando, Florida.
The conference seems to be very professionally organized, featuring 24 speakers giving 26 “red-pilled” presentations on becoming the ideal man in this less than ideal world. It’s the perfect venue for me to introduce some of the ideas that are important to me these days. In addition to covering some of the basic ideas from The Way of Men and Becoming a Barbarian, I’ll be using th
