What makes a man a man? Now more than ever in the brave new rootless matriarchal dystopia that has become western civilization, it is urgent that you embrace the masculine virtues of your ancestors. This is quite a challenge for those who have scant few male role models to hold in esteem. Young men in the Alt-Right see decadence, decay, and decline all around them. Many fear a future without a family to serve as their anchor. Those with career ambitions find disappointment and consternation when their goals don’t pan out. It’s not easy to forge a life of honor and dignity when your wheels are spinning, mired in the muck of globalization, diversity and feminism.
The first step toward capturing the spirit of valor that your forefathers possessed is to embrace the difficulties of life. Iron sharpens iron, and I submit to you that a pristine sword without the nicks and dings of combat is nothing more than useless decorum. Life’s challenges build character, and character is the foundation of manhood that family and career are built upon. One consequence of (((modernity))) is the victimhood complex, which is entrenched in our entitlement culture. We all suffer from this malady on some level. Weeding it from your mind will serve to liberate your masculinity and strengthen your resolve.
In the absence of male friends and family to serve as mentors, study the great men of history who suffered through adversity only to rise to the top. Confederate General Robert E. Lee was the son of Light-Horse Harry Lee, a famous Revolutionary War era patriot. While his father was doubtlessly a great man – he squandered his fortunes and served a year in debtors prison, bringing shame to his family at a time when indebtedness was heavily frowned upon. Harry Lee died when his son was a child, leaving young Robert without the guidance of a steadfast father. Despite these setbacks, Robert E. Lee rose to the pinnacle of American military history and is revered among the greatest generals of all time. Strength through adversity defined the character of Robert E. Lee. No modern man would be ill advised to channel his virtuous spirit into their own life.
Fear of failure will all but guarantee a mediocre life without viable purpose.
Which brings me to the next crucial point. Get married. Have children. Bring more men into the world and be the mentor to your sons that you never had. I’m among the older men in the Southern Nationalist movement. I’m neither wealthy nor powerful. I’ve led no cavalry charge, built no pyramids, conquered no foreign lands. I’m not even a man of Harry Lee’s caliber. Nevertheless, I understand that without Harry Lee there would have been no Robert E. Lee. If my only legacy to posterity is my progeny, then I’ve accomplished more than enough.
In my opinion, fatherhood is the defining accomplishment of a man, and sans taking the risks required to become a father, any claim of masculine virtue is hollow and superficial. Manhood is not measured by notches in a bedpost. It isn’t measured by that which you can’t control. I’m divorced and thus failed to maintain a nuclear family for my children, but that has not stopped me from being an active and present father. I could not fight the evil of feminism and family law to hold my family together – but I’ve provided for my two sons, I’ve worked hard and built a stable life, and I’ve done my best to teach them through deeds, as well as, words. It has never been easy and I don’t deserve any trophies nor do I want one on my mantle. My reward will be seeing my sons carrying on mine and my father’s name and the values I’ve bestowed. My satisfaction will be teaching them the 14 words and seeing them living those words more dutifully than I have.
Becoming a father takes risk. Being a father takes risk. But fatherhood is the antidote to nihilism and depression. Your life has a purpose when you become a father, and you strive to be better not only for yourself, but for the benefit of your children.
Before becoming a father, I was a rudderless ship in an ocean of pozz. My career ambitions were abysmal and I could have easily sunk to the depths of my own self loathing. Despite the angst of living my 20s in Weimerica, I knew that becoming a father would change my life. I was not a particularly skilled or confident man, but I had served in the armed forces and picked up good training to guide me through life. I determined that I would not let my lack of depth stop me from learning, building, and pursuing a future for myself and a family to call my own.
Likewise, divorce did not stop me from spending time with my children and passing along the life skills that I’ve acquired. Children are resilient beings, and their minds are like sponges, absorbing every bit of knowledge they are exposed to. Learn to fish, learn to shoot, learn to do home repairs and improvement. Even if you aren’t mechanically inclined, challenge yourself to learn the operation of the internal combustion engine and how to do basic auto maintenance. Learn the difference between a 2 stroke motor and a 4 stroke. Build upon your knowledge and be the foundation that your children build their future on. I can promise you this, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing your own flesh and blood, the man of the future, the fruit of your loins, learning to shoot a rifle and hitting his target.
Today, I’m in my mid-40s and my oldest son has a 4.0 GPA. My youngest son is still a lump of clay, and despite his stubborn and often challenging personality, has glimpses of brilliance that make me proud. Every mistake I make is an opportunity for growth, not only for me but for them. Only time will tell if my efforts will bear fruit and two healthy, confident men will be the result. But one thing is certain, had I not become a father, I’d never know the pleasure of watching two boys grow into men.
So I say to you, the young white men of the South, if you really want to Retake Everything, you must commit to and embrace fatherhood as the first tangible step toward that goal. Your sons will not just be your own legacy, they’ll be contributors to the legacy of Our People. Turn off the video games, abandon the drugs, stop watching pornography and indulging in behaviors that dull the mind and weaken the spirit.
Challenge yourself to meet a good woman and marry her. Stop holding women to higher standards of physical appearance than you hold your own self. Look into their hearts. Even as intolerable as the modern white woman seems to be becoming, if you lead her – she will follow. And if your play your cards right, so will a young platoon of future soldiers in the fight to retake what has been lost.
Remember this, despite the risks of marriage and the misery of divorce, children are the one thing that can never be totally robbed from you as long as you are an involved and a loving father. Don’t allow fear of failure be an excuse to never try – because that, in itself, is a failure infinitely worse than divorce.
You can do this. We can do this. We must do this. Now, more than ever before.
