Counter-Currents has published the second part of my series on vitality. Sparta is of interest to men like us for obvious reasons. But, while 300 has made it’s warrior culture a central romantic narrative of the New Right, little is actually known about the content of the Spartan warrior state. Although this paper primarily seeks to explain how Lycurgus understood the links between the body and ethics, it also provides content and sources on the lived experience of post-Lycurgan reform Spartans.
