BAP said in Bronze Age Mindset that the friendships we have made are the greatest events in these last few years and that these friendships in this struggle lift us out of the blackpill and greatly improve our morale (I’m paraphrasing). But these riots over the course of the last week, in addition to the calls by many for a Haitian-style revolution has made me increasingly uneasy. Any friends I have made in my life who are aware of what is really going on are located solely on a phone screen or hours away. I stand virtually alone and it is quite apparent that the police have little interest in helping me should I get into any real trouble. I am one man trying to protect my family from the hordes of bug people.
There needs to be a serious conversation about how we plan to cultivate the Männerbund. We often talk about the idea of it, but not much on actual implementation or application. I am unsure about many aspects of undertaking such a task and carrying it out, but every city or county should have a group of men who associate with each other and have each other’s backs. Imagine the mob directly outside your door on the verge of burning down your house or your building. You are trapped and you call the police, but they are too busy taking a knee in solidarity with the “protesters.” You DM Kantbot, but he is too busy eating mayonnaise with a spoon and formulating his new theory on why being a ghey lard-ass is actually fulfilling, so he is of no help. Who do you call?
What if you could make one phone call and “the boys” show up to save your ass? Thirty guys, all strapped, drop everything and rush to your house or your business because you are their brother and that’s what brothers do. Why have we not created this already? There’s the obvious fear of infiltration by unfriendly groups who would seek to have you arrested, fired from your job, or expelled from your school. But what if we kept the group as essentially only a club that engaged in exercise, shooting, fighting, survival, et cetera? A cover organization could be an obscure issue like wetlands conservation. Instead of some militia that talks about overthrowing the government or Klan that seeks to dress up in costumes and embarrass themselves in public, we make it explicitly clear that such talk has no place in our club. This might be annoying that you must censor yourself, but you must do this in public anyway. You can talk about statistics and light runners as a twitter anon if you must vent these thoughts. This also makes normie men more comfortable to join and participate.
Anyone who insists on espousing extremist values should be suspected of being there for nefarious purposes and excommunicated from the group. The purpose of the group should be only for fraternity, for the brotherhood. The only ideology espoused should be masculine vitality. “This week we’re going to the shooting range on Saturday.” “This week the high school let us use their gym and mats so Ted could give us a Krav Maga lesson.” “Who wants to put in for a bow hunt with me this year?” The goal would simply be to create a bond among men, that way, in the event that any one man is in serious trouble, or there is a threat to the community it would be their bond to each other that would serve them, not abstract political ideals.
This club could have economic benefits as well a la affinity networks. If Joe is a mechanic, James is a farmer, and Jack’s wife is a realtor, then all members should agree to only go to those members for repair work, produce, and buying a house. Instead of hiring some neurotic college girl who thinks the patriarchy should be abolished to watch your children, you pay one of the wives do it, so you’re giving your money to each other. With enough men, its also possible to pool your money together. Imagine knowing the co-pay for your wife’s delivery will be covered by your mannerbund. Imagine if one man has the ‘in’ on a property being sold and wants to make a storage unit company, but instead of going to the bank, goes to the club and they are able to contribute enough money between them to make it happen and they share the profits accordingly instead of paying a bank interest. Another man could start a gym, and another could start an engineering consulting group. They could share the profits, hire each other, and grow wealthy together. Our enemies do such things, should we not do the same and become elite ourselves, both economically and physically? Some of you may be doing this currently, but I recommend you all learn the power of the “LLC”.
We do not need police or banks or anything of that sort if we have each other. But the big question is how do we advertise for such a club? Do you even need to? Do we have different chapters or do we make each one independent? Should we start a facebook group, put an ad out in the paper, or put up fliers? Legally, do you have to make it an actual registered private club with membership dues or can it be done by just making it a group of friends? And legally can you exclude undesirables (women, etc) and how so? The modern history of private clubs point to strict screening but no lists and formal structures that can be attacked by the left’s minions. And most of all, how do you advertise it without making it cringe and LARPy? The answer may be informal to match the idea of implicit activities to foster friendship and brotherhood.
In my mind, having a network of loyal friends is the most vital component to our success in the coming years. Two men meeting in real life are worth more than 1,000 Twitter followers. There is no greater morale boost than knowing someone has your back when the shit hits the fan. And there is no greater force than a group of cohesive young men.
