Honour, loyalty, courage and truth – that’s what it’s all about…
Let’s lay it down. People today, in this age of lies, are mostly weak-willed, castrated sheep who follow the herd. They have no code of ethics. They aren’t about anything. You sure as hell can’t rely on them.
They’re a sad reflection of what once was. By that I’m talking about the Vikings and Saxons, the cowboys and gunslingers of the Old West, Mongols, Huns, and pirates. And in more modern times, one-percenter motorcycle clubs and hardcore Odinist heathens.
In short, barbarians. Which okay might be seen as a derogatory term. But they were all people with a code of ethics. And those that are still around today have a code of honour that they live by. Most importantly they’re about something. They know who they are. And if you treat them with respect, they’ll treat you well too. If you don’t, woe betide you. That’s how it should be. Fuck with me, and I’ll seriously fuck with you.
If that appeals to you and you’d like to get involved and hear more, subscribe to my Unthinking Barbarians’ Bulletin. I’ll let you know when I publish new posts on my site, and when I’ve got something worthwhile to say.
