Paganism Without Swords? – Recently Published

Counter-Currents has published an essay, Paganism Without Swords?, which begins by explaining the skill of artisan knife and sword making as a Nietzschean critique of modern economic man. I then move to a discussion of the links between pagan ethics and weaponry. While other authors have failed to note this link, a consequence of the search for a “postmodern paganism” devoid of warfare and aggression, I feel it is critical for understanding how pagan ethics developed and culminated in the symbiosis between Roman man and the gladius. For the courage and fierceness of the Roman were necessary for successful use of the gladius.
