The Audiobook Of “Thirty-Seven” Is Now Available — Quintus Curtius

The Audiobook Of “Thirty-Seven” Is Now Available — Quintus Curtius

This is a great book by Quintus Curtius, a pillar of Manosphere writing. His site is a great place to go for masculinity in history, and Major Styles stands in approval of his latest offering.

First published in 2014, Thirty-Seven defied conventional categorization and quickly achieved classic status. This seminal work—both supremely relevant to the modern era yet fervently evocative of the glories of ages past—contained the elements of a worldview that would be expanded and elaborated in the author’s later works Pantheon, Pathways, and in other writings.

For the first time, Thirty-Seven is now available as a professionally-read audio book.  British reader Saethon Williams has lent his considerable talents to the project, and has captured the spirit of the book with grace and clarity.

Those who are already familiar with the book will find that hearing it read aloud adds an entirely new dimension to the experience.  Those becoming acquainted with it for the first time will find it a window to a world that will become a lifelong refuge.

Thirty-Seven is now available on Audible, and will also be available on iTunes and Amazon within two or three days.

On the Rudeness of Bob Dylan Towards His Fans

On the Rudeness of Bob Dylan Towards His Fans

Bob Dylan won the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in 2016. However, he received criticism from the Swedish Academy when he refused to acknowledge the award.

A member of the Swedish Academy…called this year’s Literature Prize winner, Bob Dylan, “rude and arrogant” for not expressing thanks for the prize, the academy says.

Eventually, Dylan wrote a “thank you” letter which was appreciative. However, it should be noted that he never presented the letter himself. Instead, he had Azita Raji, the United States Ambassador to Sweden, read the letter at the Nobel Banquet. Note: He could have easily recorded a recital of the message and uploaded it to YouTube (or paid somebody to do it for him).

I’ve long been a fan of Dylan, and I consider him a great songwriter. However, the truth is ugly and obvious…

Bob Dylan has been rude to his fans for several decades.

I saw Dylan several times in concert; and each time, he never acknowledged the fans or thanked them for coming. Moreover, my experience is similar to hundreds of people that saw him in concert as well. They all spoke of a man that was cold and disrespectful to the concertgoers. This leads to an important set of questions.

If you have no gratitude, then how great of a man are you? How can you truly be a leader of young men? How can you ignite the noble dignity of a nation?

Thankfully, the tide is turning. Here was the top comment regarding the story, which appeared in The Guardian  (465 up votes):

I walked out on his gig at the Byron Bay Bluesfest because of his total lack of engagement with the crowd. Maybe that’s his shtick, but if he couldn’t be bothered with us, I couldn’t be bothered with him. May as well have seen him on youtube.

People are catching on. The solider inside of them is awakening, and they are ready to strike down the imposters of society. We no longer need to smell the farts of an disgruntled entertainer and call it perfume. We no longer need to listen to Hollywood blowhards when they preach to us (see the recent Twitter feed regarding Jim Carrey’s painting of Sarah Sanders). We’re in the middle of a culture war…and the Roman warrior must reclaim his culture from those that denigrate it.

A nation of great men should celebrate a scientist, an inventor, or a doctor, etc. It’s a sign a cultural degeneracy when a rude entertainer is filling that void.

On Receiving Advice From Asexual Men

On Receiving Advice From Asexual Men

Recently, I was speaking to an older man that I know. We were talking about the challenges of life. This man – let’s call him Andy – is an “asexual”. In short, he’s never been married, has no girlfriend, and has no plans of acquiring one. To my knowledge, Andy  is straight (although who knows what happens in the dead of night).

Eventually, about twenty minutes into the conversation, I was reminded of something…

An asexual man cannot give adequate advice to a family man.

The reason is simple (but increasingly convoluted the United States of Androgyny). A straight man is faced with challenges that the androgynous man avoids. Here’s just a few of them:

  • How do you handle the emotional complexities of your wife?
  • What lesson(s) will you teach to your daughter? To your son?
  • How do you handle sexual temptation as a married man?

These are just a few, but I can list a hundred more.

The asexual man does not deal with these daily challenges. He’s looking at the Freeway of Love from a distance. He’s not willing to get into the squared circle, to put on the boxing gloves and fight. He’s waving the white flag on the Battlefield of Romance.

Therefore, the asexual man cannot guide the family man. He’s not facing the same obstacles; he’s not climbing a similar mountain. He’s not running in the same race.

Only somebody that walks in your shoes will know how they feel.

A Man Should Never Compromise His Desire to Start His Own Family

A Man Should Never Compromise His Desire to Start His Own Family

Years ago, I met a great woman (let’s call her Carol). She was kind and beautiful. Moreover, we had “chemistry”: a polite word for good sex. There was only one problem…

  • Carol was 44, divorced, and a mother of 4 children
  • I was 38, childless, and looking to start a family

Eventually, we had to “call it quits.” I was honest with her, telling her that I was looking to start my own family. Thankfully, Carol was mature and she understood my decision; we parted ways like two rational adults. It was a bit sad though (like many breakups are). However, my decision was based on the following idea:

A Man Should Never Compromise His Desire to Start His Own Family

Now, almost ten years later, I have the most beautiful daughter. She’s a carbon copy of me, which is a beautiful thing. And every day I thank God that she’s in my life…that the Good Lord has blessed me with a little angel.

daddy and duagher
Every day I thank God for my daughter…and she was only born because I had the courage to make a difficult decision.

Periodically, I think back to my time with Carol. If I would have continued with her (and followed my “emotions”) my daughter would not exist. Thankfully, I followed my logical side and I’m so much happier for it.

A man that wants his own family should never compromise. If he does, he’ll always wonder “What if?” He’ll always think about the road he never took: the mountain he never climbed. And the emptiness will lead to regret: a regret that, in the dead of night, will turn into an anger against his wife.

He’ll come to believe that his wife cajoled him against his will, forcing him to miss the Castle of his Dreams.

People Will Judge the Character of Your Parents by Your Behavior

People Will Judge the Character of Your Parents by Your Behavior

From How to be a Man (1846) by Harvy Newcomb:

Children, likewise, honor or dishonor their parents in their general behavior. If they are rude and uncivil, they reflect dishonor upon their parents; for people say, they have not been trained and instructed at home. But when their behavior is respectful, correct, pure, and amiable, it reflects honor upon the parents. People will judge of the character of your parents by your behavior.

A beautiful point…and one that’s rarely though about.

  • Do I make my parents proud? Is my behavior a source of honor for them?

Most people think differently…because they’re centered on the first person: I, me, my, etc. And maybe that’s ok at times. But it’s good to mix it up a bit…start thinking about the people that put you on this earth – namely your parents.

whore
Let’s just say that her parents fucked up.

Note: We can see the damage that Sigmund Freud has done. He divided the Western parent from his child…created a conflict between the father and his progeny. Perhaps he (more than anyone else) has weakened the character of the modern man.

Is Max Joseph the Biggest Cuck in America?

Is Max Joseph the Biggest Cuck in America?

A few days ago, I saw the show Catfish at the gymnasium. I would never watch the show at home. However, in the public arena of a gym, I see things that I would otherwise ignore.

Catfish is a show on MTV. It’s about people that create fake online profiles, and it stars Nev Shulman and Max Joseph: two Jews from New York that look like they’ve been free-basing Estrogen for twenty years.

Wanna’ see the face of a man that goes to a Women’s March? Look no further…

jews
They have no toxic masculinity…

To the red-pill observer, they’re your typical beta males. However, a closer look will reveal that Max Joseph is, perhaps, the biggest cuck we’ve seen in the last five decades.

I saw the following in the first four scenes:

  • In the first scene, Max is seated at a table next to a rainbow flag.
  • In the second scene, Max has a “Black Lives Matter” shirt.
  • In the third scene, Max is wearing a shirt that says “Feminist
  • In the fourth scene, Max is wearing a shirt that says “I Stand With Immigration

This is what an SJW universe looks like. You have no humor. You have no sophistication or beauty. All you have is protest.

mtv
MTV used to be about music…now it’s like everything else on TV: cannibalized by the SJW narrative.

It reminds of the Anita Sarkessian video, which recently made the rounds: “Everything is sexism, everything is racist, everything is homophobic.” Thankfully, somebody made a funny video to spoof her nonsense:

In summary, MTV is over. Just like every other great creation (i.e Disney, Star Wars) it’s been cannibalized by the counter culture. Now it’s like another dead animal on the Serengeti: the “Year Zero” vultures are finishing off its remains.

On the Cheapness of Hashtag Empathy

On the Cheapness of Hashtag Empathy

#PrayforParis, #VegasStrong, #PrayforLondon

We’ve seen a lot of these hashtags. Somebody is sitting at the computer, feeling sad about a recent tragedy. So they post a trending hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, etc. It only takes a minute! Afterwards, they bounce to the local club for a Cosmopolitan (just like that zany Carry Bradshaw used to drink).

But there’s another layer of tragedy…a descent into the bowels of human suffering.

Are you willing to visit the parents of a dead child? Are you willing to console a man that’s lost his wife, or a woman that’s lost her husband? What about a little girl that’s lost her father? 

Most people don’t have that kind of courage (To be honest, I’m not sure I do). They stay away from the Storm of Devastation. They take a left turn at Desolation Row. They check out of Heartbreak Hotel and head over to Paradise City.

In short, hashtag empathy is cheap…a surrogate type of concern.

*Note: The dedicated liberal is always bitching about racism. And yet, when it comes time for a hashtag, he/she can only acknowledge the tragedy in a “white” nation (France, England, etc). Think about it…have you ever seen #PrayforBurkinaFaso or #PrayforNigeria? You have not…even though both countries have been hit by terrorism.
