This is a blog about a return to a more pure way of life, a life of beauty and savagery. Beauty inholding with the highest ideals of chivalry, monarchism, traditionalism, and esotericism, an ideal rooted in the old right or new right if you will. Yet we cannot have order from chaos without the savagery of our natural state. We are warriors; we are masculine, sweating, bleeding, fighting and killing. We are unrelenting, and refuse to be gelded and domesticated; we are tribal, and unapologetic.

The Virtues of Philip II of Spain
Charles left Philip with experienced advisors—notably the secretary Francisco de los Cobos and the general Duke of Alba. Philip was also left with extensive written instructions which emphasised “piety, patience, modesty, and distrust.” These principles of Charles were gradually assimilated by his son, who would grow up to become grave, self-possessed and distrustful. Personally, Philip spoke softly, and had an icy self-mastery; in the words of one of his ministers, “he had a smile that cut like a sword.”
