boot

The problem with modern society is that there are too many order takers, and too few true warriors. If we fail in becoming warriors then the grim future George Orwell predicted in his last days will surely come to pass: “Imagine a boot stomping on a human face, forever.”

violence

Violence is an ugly and dirty business and rightly repulses good and decent people. However, a warrior must overcome his own revulsion to violence and familiarize himself with it, and learn how to use it. Not to do so would guarantee defeat in every battle.

Qualities of a Warrior

Self-Control: The way of the warrior requires mastery of one’s body, how to move, how to breathe, how to sense. Since the mind, heart, and body are integrated, any improvements in one center are transferred to the other centers. The self-control over the body that is required to learn such activities as martial arts, dance, or yoga is a form of intentional suffering and exercise for the will.

Courage: The courage a warrior must cultivate is not just for overcoming personal fears, but the courage to live life to the fullest, which entails taking chances. Following the path of the warrior is the most difficult of the spiritual ways and requires courage to practice since you must also live life on your own terms. This means one must fight through the everyday worry, fear, sadness, anxiety, and depression to live with vitality and vigor.

Independence: Through critical thinking, self-reliance, and leadership, a warrior is naturally independent. These qualities automatically set him apart from the crowd that acquiesces to authority, and blindly follows current fashions and beliefs. Standing apart from the crowd can be a lonely and isolating experience and thus warriors have always had to learn to be comfortable being alone.

Leadership: A warrior is an anarchist and therefore does not recognize a higher authority over him. Not wishing to be ordered about by malignant and/or incompetent authorities, he becomes his own leader. By following the principles of moral leadership, he sets an example for others to follow.

 

Why Warriors are Feared by the State

Tyrannies throughout history have a repeated pattern of doing everything they can to eliminate warriors from their populations.

The reasons are obvious; warriors are the ones that always stir up trouble for tyrants.

They are the ones that will speak out against oppression, that will stand up to cruelty, and that will fight and die for freedom.

Warriors are also the grassroots leaders around whom disgruntled citizens will gather and unite to provide a unified front against injustice.

Warriors are self-reliant and not easily swayed by mob thinking or peer pressure, thus less likely to be influenced by lies and propaganda.

Warriors are also trained to perceive threats and dangers and are thus the first to discover a tyrant’s sinister scheme.

All these qualities make warriors anathema to psychopathic power structures.
