The minds of Western men have become calcified over the years due to the repeated exposure of the same lies, convenient half-truths and disinformation campaigns. Our media, our universities and our politics have become so full of these pestilential lies that it is hard to name a significant and positive contribution to the Western canon of recent years.
While Return of Kings and associated online communities excel in providing practical advice to men, truly new work of philosophy has yet to emerge. However, all that changed recently with the release of Bronze Age Mindset by Bronze Age Pervert: a work of astonishing clarity that offers men a distinct path to usher in a glorious new era of Western thought.
Who is the pervert of the Bronze Age? In truth, no one knows for sure. Some say he worked as Steve Bannon’s contact within the White House. Some say he rode with Achilles across the windswept plains of ancient Troy. Still others insist that it is part of us all: the indomitable spirit of the ancient man incarnate. Second to anyone or anything perverted from the Bronze Age is their vision and how you can apply it to your own life.
1. Sun and Steel
Anyone who’s taken the red pill knows how hard it is to convince others to see the truth. These days, people are so entrenched in their own false beliefs that it seems impossible to help their friends and loved ones on the right path. Bronze Age Mindset advocates that before revealing the truth about reality to someone, you must first prescribe them a course of “sun and steel.” Here, in this allusion to Japanese author and bodybuilder Yukio Mishima, Bronze Age Pervert refers directly to sunlight and weightlifting.
It’s no secret that men with extreme leftist views are weak, pale and timid creatures. Take a look at the body politic of any major American urban center and you will observe that weakness of mind and body leads to weakness of spirit. This causes these men to adopt a victimization mindset and makes them susceptible to progressive ideologies that seek to exploit this.
Luckily, this can be solved by getting out of the office, getting some sun, and hitting the gym. A man dedicated to improving his physical health will soon rid himself of such ideologies of weakness as he develops confidence and self-control. Over time, he will become more willing to adopt good ideas about masculinity.
2. Ancient inspiration
The men of antiquity were examples of power, wisdom and courage. When the Greeks defeated the Persians at the Battle of Marathon, they immediately ran twenty-six miles—clad in full armor—back to Athens to prevent the landing of additional Persian forces. These types of manly exploits are discussed in detail in Bronze Age Mindset, and examples are provided of how you can use these historical events to become powerful in your own life.
Although we are never as great as the heroes of lore, there is no reason to despair. The world is vast and full of opportunities. It is essential that a man finds his calling from within and pursues it obsessively. What this means to you will vary: perhaps you wish to be a professional athlete, a renowned physicist or a master cabinetmaker. Whatever your vocation, you can take inspiration from men of the past who accomplished great deeds.
A man separated from his history is a man without roots. As we read about great men, we learn that anything is possible with the right discipline and application of effort. Bronze Age Mindset contains such stories and serves to guide you on your own path to greatness.
3. Dispel the lies
Although taking the red pill puts you on the path to the truth, it is only a gateway to dispel the lies that have been told to you since childhood. Many men find themselves in the PUA community after realizing that the advice given to them regarding women often ends in miserable failure. However, the truth about masculinity and femininity is only the beginning.
We are told in secular societies that science must be our new religion. We are told that we have to believe whatever the scientific experts claim and that those who don’t are flat earth fundamentalists who think that Jesus walked with the dinosaurs. But science as practiced today is just another institution that has been corrupted by progressive thinking, financial interests and corporate lobbying.
Take, for example, the lies we have been told about the alleged safety of soy and soy products. Much of it was misinformation from big business to reduce the quality of the food supply and cause permanent endocrine damage that lowers testosterone in men. This is just one of the many lies we have been told. Bronze Age Mindset takes this concept further, exposes modern science as it has become, and explains how humans can take back control of technological innovation.
4. Heroic Friendships
Loneliness is an epidemic in the United States. Although this phenomenon traditionally affects older people, it is increasingly common among young men. Many young men don’t have close friends, let alone girlfriends or wives. It is clear from recent “incel” phenomena that this has potentially deadly results for civilization.
Bronze Age Mindset advocates the return of heroic friendship. Many such friendships were formed in battle: Achilles and Patroclus, Alexander and Hephaestion, and many others. Modern scholars are quick to label these relationships “homosexual” because they both fail to understand male friendship and fear the return of what two devoted heroic friends can accomplish.
Here, Bronze Age Pervert emphasizes the importance of forming your own group of men to accomplish great tasks. Many members of the PUA community also share this sentiment, and responses to simple happy hour get-togethers of like-minded masculine men have been met with harsh criticism, violent protests, and even travel bans from some countries. It is clear that what the powers that be fear most is heroic friendship; the unbreakable bond of great men determined to achieve a common and noble cause.
In conclusion, Bronze Age Mindset marks the beginning of a new era in Western thought. Bronze Age Pervert guides us through the past to show us how we could learn from it and apply ancient wisdom to create a better future for ourselves. His insights are fresh, compelling, and show us that we are finally on the cusp of something bigger than all of us.
