@TV That's a good tactic. He's got a lot of sources, so it shouldn't be a problem. Which book did you read?
Libido Dominandi. I can't say enough good things about it.
@CarletonJ It's fantastic. Great analysis of the way (mainly Jewish) revolutionaries have influenced modern culture.
@TV Great. I bought it, but never got around to starting. What were some of your impressions?
I'll get back to you on that when I have more time to write in depth. It made me understand that a strong value system is the key to freedom, which is a concept that has been grossly distorted by various "liberation" movements
That makes it sound really boring but it's actually fascinating. He gives many examples throughout history and breaks down different liberation movements, exposing the twisted intentions behind them and how they spread. It's also a history of how sex has been used as a method of control.
Hey friends, I'm doing some research on warrior philosophy and looking around for general books on self-discipline and martial mindsets, I was wondering if anyone would be able to suggest any relevant books?
@Gene Fillmore I would suggest looking at Julius Evola's "Metaphysics of War" as well as some of the works of Ernst Junger such as "Storm of Steel" and "On Pain." I haven't gotten around to reading these books myself yet but they're very high on my list and from what I understand they deal with topics very similar to the ones you're interested in.
On Pain is very meaningful. Short, but every sentence seems to count.
I've heard really good things about Junger, especially about the material he wrote in the interwar period. I'd like to get into his books over the summer when I'm free from school
There seems to be a lot of great material on this subject from Japan.
He's a favorite of mine, some of his best work hasn't even been translated into english yet, unfortunately.
