Pauline Lecomte: “In your opinion, what is the most powerful insight presented by the Iliad?”
Dominique Venner: “Strength and beauty. The Iliad is not just a poem about the Trojan War, it is about fate as it was understood by our Borean ancestors, whether they were Greek, Celtic, Germanic, Slavic, or Latin. The poet sings about nobility in the face of war, brave heroes who kill and die, the sacrifice of those who defend their motherland, the sorrows of women, the farewell of the father to his son that lives on, the strain of old age. He sings about a great many more things: the ambitions of kings, their vanity, their quarrels. He sings about bravery and cowardice, friendship, love, and tenderness. Of the need for glory that pulls men up to the height of the gods.”

‘I told you, I’m not built for this kind of fight’, he said.
‘You’re built for every kind of fight’, said Torgaddon.
‘You know this and you need to stop thinking as if the Imperium is on the back foot. You’re a Luna Wolf, and nothing is more dangerous than a cornered wolf.’
‘So you think we’re cornered?’
‘All right, maybe that wasn’t the best expression,’ admitted Torgaddon. ‘But you know what I mean. Strong enemies know when you’re weak. That makes them hungry, and that’s when they come for you. So what do you do?’
‘Don’t let them know you’re weak.’
‘Or better yet, don’t be weak,’ said Torgaddon. ‘Be strong. I remember something the Warmaster said back in the day, you know, back before everything went to shit. He said a man has control of action alone, never the fruits of the action. Take control of your actions, Garvi. Remember that when things look their worst, you can only do what you think is right at the time.’

Men Among the Ruins is a book by Julius Evola and a concept I like to think about in regard to the current state of the West. Instead of viewing the decline as a source of grief, view it as unique opportunity to create a new and better culture, blending tradition with the aspects of modern culture that are glorious. MMA and gym training are two great examples of this, we are striving for physical and martial perfection (as our ancestors), it is just that we do it in a modern arena.
Traditionalism in this sense is not living exactly like our ancestors, but rather about adhering to perennial principles that guided them (such as the strive for greatness – or rather progression).
One of the goals with this clothing brand is to capture that spirit, so the tanktop you see before you is modern gym culture blended with traditional imagery (i.e. the Fleur-de-lis at the chest).

“Then I saw Heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war.
His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.”
– Revelation 19:11-19:12
