Library of Ferocity Dark Triad Man

Train yourself from practitioner, to scholar and to master.

Welcome to the Library of Ferocity of the Dark Triad Man.

Survival is not going to happen for you simply because you like being here. It’s going to take ceaseless work to harden yourself against the pitfalls of the dark world. Part of that hard work is educating yourself. I’m not suggesting you fill your mind with trivia. Trivia is useful but it’s deep study of timeless materials that is going to empower you, enrich you, fortify you, align you, teach you and bring you to a better posture than you had.

In this Library of Ferocity we define “better” as more powerful. Power is not necessarily overt. Power is capacity. Knowledge is capacity. Knowledge, too, is most times what separates the winner from the loser, the survivor from the fallen, the man who walks away with a fortune from the man who sits there broken and destitute and has no clue how he’s going to eat the next day.

Knowledge, of course, comes from many places.

For our purpose here – ruthless mentoring for a dark world – we’re going to focus on reading materials that are absolutely crucial for your success, your understanding of conflict and for the unflinching development of your own power.

You have a responsibility to be intimately familiar with these resources. You have a duty to engage in study and reflection. We’re going to look at them together, one by one, and I am going to tell you four things:

  • What the resource is.
  • Who wrote it.
  • Where to get it.
  • Why you need to master it.
  • What the Dark Triad Man gets from it.

Understood? Now, let’s get started. I’m going to provide official links where possible and I expect you to start using them. Mentoring is leading the horse to water. I’m not going to force you to invest your time in your own growth. Drink from the trough of knowledge or get saddled and ridden by a better man than yourself.

Let’s get started with the first group of resources.

The Nine Laws


The Nine Laws is your living manual of power, distilled for you by the man who was forced to build it to survive. The author forged this system over decades of cruel experience. It began with profound trauma in early childhood, shaped itself during long training in the eastern warrior arts, and was polished amidst financial industry competition and family crisis. Master this content, discover the full extent of your capabilities, and deliver yourself to a place that few men ever reach: joyous mastery of your own fate.

Who wrote it: Ivan Throne.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A multiple bestseller and deeply authentic living manual of power with hundreds of pages of comprehensive teaching and examples.

Why you need to master it: The Nine Laws are the grave source of living power for the Dark Triad Man. The modern world describes traits of narcissism, Machiavellianism and psychopathy and trembles at the unleashed conjunction of them. The Nine Laws expanded edition dives deeply into the root of this vision, brilliance and competence and provides serious insight into availing yourself of total capacity.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Moving from practitioner, scholar and then to master demands a ferocious application of the dark triad traits – both within and without. The Nine Laws walks you through a complete immersion in their hidden alignment.

“Own what you hold in your hands. Engage with the entire world. Follow the Way.
This is vitally important:
You are the point where fate explodes.
Never forget it.”

 

MAGA 2020 And Beyond


MAGA 2020 And Beyond MAGA 2020 & Beyond tells the tales of a prosperous future where evil is defeated, the border wall is built, society has righted itself, space exploration is common and world peace has been attained. These aren’t just fantastical stories of a farfetched future, they are stories of a future that can be obtained.

Who wrote it: Milo Yiannopoulos (Author),‎ Jon Del Arroz (Author),‎ L. Jagi Lamplighter (Author),‎ Marina Fontaine (Author),‎ Brad Torgersen (Author),‎ John C. Wright (Author),‎ Declan Finn (Author),‎ Arlan Andrews Sr. (Author),‎ Ivan Throne (Author),‎ Alfred Genesson (Author),‎ Chris Donahue (Author),‎ Christine Chase (Author),‎ David Harr (Author),‎ Dawn Witzke (Author),‎ Elaine Arias (Author),‎ Justin Robinson (Author),‎ Molly Pitcher (Author),‎ Monalisa Foster (Author),‎ P.A.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A terrific anthology from science fiction and other writers including Ivan Throne and his “Father Cincinnatus” essay.

Why you need to master it: From a reviewer on Amazon: “This was a varied, entertaining, and thought provoking collection. The highly readable stories convey an upbeat, can-do message- namely, to Make America Great Again (MAGA). I especially appreciated the humor in several of the pieces. Overall, the stories were quite insightful… They help explain and support why we ‘deplorables’ hold certain tenets, but the stories are always rational and well balanced.”

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Learn to enjoy what you read, and let that enjoyment serve as a parallel reward as you consider alternative futures. This work is sustenance of momentum towards victory in the 2020 elections.

“2020 comes quickly, and we are no longer miserable orphans gazing upon the strewn wreckage of a once glorious nation. There is a patriarch at the helm, and his stern visage looks ahead.”

 

The Escape Plan


The Escape Plan is a short, powerful work designed to support men suffering withn the trap of complacent, miserable relationships – and help them break free into new opportunity.

Who wrote it: Ivan Throne.

Where to get it: Read more here.

What it is: An ebook road map of escape and recovery from abusive relationships, for both men who realize they need to get out – and for their brothers in the dark world who wish to help them.

Why you need to master it: If you’re a man and you’re trapped in a cyclic, abusive, infectiously toxic relationship it’s not that simple to get out. The damaged woman is an expert in trapping and controlling. She cultivates a cycle similar in effect to what is done when brainwashing people in political indoctrination camps. A man is entrapped, broken down, destroyed, and kept there by manipulative sadism.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Not only the fortification of self, but also the skill and knowledge to help his brothers in the dark world. When a man it caught in this abuse, what do you do? How do you help them? How can they approach the decision to leave and finally make it? How to prevent him from falling back into that rut of vulnerability to the next damaged woman?

“Life is brutal, and often short. It is also not a dress rehearsal. You are given only one, and to spend it in the thrall of a bitter, disordered and excruciatingly damaged woman is a grave and miserable mistake.”

SJWs Always Double Down


SJWS Always Double Down is the new political philosophy bestseller by Vox Day. This sequel to SJWs Always Lie is a compelling and crucial read for those who are dealing with the convergence of their organizations by social justice warriors.

Who wrote it: Vox Day, with a foreword by Ivan Throne.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A powerful new tool against social justice warriors in organizations.

Why you need to master it: It is a valuable and critical analysis of the methods, processes and socio-sexual impetus behind the parasitical convergence of institutions and organizations by social justice warriors, who subordinate the original mission of the enterprise to their ideological mission – and double down on idiocy even as it derails and destroys the very purposes and original goals of the organization.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Awareness of the inevitable metastasic process of social justice warriors, fatal to the host, and the psychic nastiness that is the heart and source of their inability to slow their descent into gibbering instutitional takeover.

“Vox Day exposes this draining assault on the vigor and coherence of the open source community as an example of deliberate social justice warfare, designed to turn the most brilliant endeavors of the day into hollow, failed husks inhabited only by humorless commissars.”

 

SJWs Always Lie


SJWS Always Lie is a critical political book by Vox Day. Social Justice Warriors have plagued mankind for more than 150 years, but only in the last 30 years has their ideology become dominant in the West.

Who wrote it: Vox Day.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A powerful weapon in the cultural war against the thought police.

Why you need to master it: It is a powerful guide to understanding, anticipating, and surviving SJW attacks from the perspective of a man who has not only survived, but thrived, after experiencing multiple attempts by Social Justice Warriors to disqualify, discredit, and disemploy him in the same manner they have successfully attacked Nobel Laureates, technology CEOs, broadcasters, sports commentators, school principals, and policemen.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Observation and study of the precise process by which social justice warriors engage in political battle to silence and destroy their opponents, and actionable steps to develop profound antifragility in response.

“One cannot truly understand the depths of total dishonesty to which Social Justice Warriors are willing to descend until one has experienced being a direct target of their unrestrained use of the politics of personal destruction.”

 

Cuckservative


Cuckservative shows how Americans are being displaced in their own land by an ongoing invasion that dwarfs Operation Barbarossa, is two orders of magnitude larger than the Mongol hordes, and is one thousand times larger than the First Crusade.

Who wrote it: Vox Day and John Red Eagle.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A damning indictment of a conservatism that has failed to conserve America’s culture and traditions.

Why you need to master it: It is not right, it is not moral, it is not economically beneficial, and it is not Constitutional to betray America’s posterity. If you do not defend your culture, your posterity, and your nation, you will eventually find themselves on their own Trail of Tears.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it:  Through grasping the reality and scale of what is taking place, you have accuracy in assessing your cultural responsibility.

“It is a peculiar, and largely modern, form of wishful thinking to believe that there are no problems to be had from such a large mass bloc of people with a different culture and language. In its present form, it was the product of progressives and social-liberal ideology, intertwined with the blank-slate view of human nature.”

 

4th Generation Warfare Handbook


4th Generation Warfare Handbook was written by the author of the Maneuver Warfare Handbook and an active-duty USMC officer with experience in Iraq.

Who wrote it: William S. Linde.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A short, concise, easily accessible handbook that provides the soldier, the military analyst, and the civilian observer with a guide to understanding and responding to the changing realities of this challenging new form of war.

Why you need to master it: Conventional militaries have repeatedly attempted to utilize technology to meet the new challenges posed, but even the most advanced technology has provided little more than meaningless short-term victories rendered futile in months, if not weeks.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Understanding of the new paradigm of both insurgent warfare and the strategic military limitations of the Deep State in the modern world. From this he gains ability to accurately anticipate and plan.

“War always changes. Our enemies learn and adapt, and we must do the same or lose. But today, war is changing faster and on a larger scale than at any time in the last 350 years. Not only are we facing rapid changes in how war is fought, we are facing radical changes in who fights and what they are fighting for.”

King James Bible


King James Bible is the underpinning of Western civilization, and the deep root of its literary, cultural, political and military traditions.

Who wrote it: Ancient Jewish scribes and 1st century A.D. Christian apostles and scholars.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A compilation of canonical books from early Jewish and Christian history.

Why you need to master it: This book is a primary underpinning of Western culture and you’ll be recognized as an uneducated boor if you’re not intimately familiar with the depth and breadth of it. It’s ancient and the foundation of much of our language and expressions (regardless of where you are in the West). Without a deep mastery of this resource you are going to miss many references, innuendos and other constructs and ideas that are derived from it. Note that I do not advocate any particular faith. Read this book for its cultural power and significance alone.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Empowered understanding of how humans work and of effective operating principles. Refer to Proverbs for this. What you read has been proven through thousands of years. Plus, there’s the strong sacred validation of success:

“And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”

 

Complete Works Of William Shakespeare


Complete Works Of William Shakespeare are the most glorious and richly immortal works of the English language, by the man remembered forever as The Bard.

Who wrote it: William Shakespeare.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: The most profoundly beautiful writing available in the English language and the source of countless cultural references within it.

Why you need to master it: The works of William Shakespeare are among the most foundational works of the English language, and they have shaped the very language itself from the time of writing. Deep familiarity of Shakespeare’s sonnets and plays grounds you in the root of much of modern English.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Context, history and sublime appreciation of the power of the very best that the English language has to offer, and the lessons and stories that form the basis for much of the English-speaking world’s subsequent literature:

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”

Tao Te Ching


Tao Te Ching is the basal elucidation of how duality ensues.

Who wrote it: Lao Tzu, from around 500 B.C.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: The basis of Taoist thought which underlies nearly every Eastern method of warfare, strategy and subtlety. More than simply a theoretical text, the Tao Te Ching is a source of enlightened understanding.

Why you need to master it: You cannot. It is like smoke; it is like water; is is the breath of the passed rider that you cannot grasp. The Tao Te Ching is an eternally deep yet brief treatise on the mind and methods of the sage. It is wisdom made clear without story or apology. This is where the generals of ancient China obtained their expertise. This is where the ninja of ancient Japan delved in the beginning of their sorcery. This is the Way of Virtue and the basis of power.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: An understanding of the way, and as a Dark Triad Man the balance of psychopathy with virtue is incredibly important. One may be amoral without immorality. The Tao Te Ching provides a firm but supple and living understanding of this.

“There is something formlessly created
Born before Heaven and Earth
So silent! So ethereal!
Independent and changeless
Circulating and ceaseless
It can be regarded as the mother of the world”

 

The Unfettered Mind


The Unfetted Mind is where the scholar moves into mastery.

Who wrote it: Takuan Sōhō, a major figure in Japanese Buddhism.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A compilation of three essays on the process of the formless mind by an abbot of the Rinzai school to the head sword instructors for the Japanese shoguns.

Why you need to master it: Let’s look at that again: This is a mind guide from the wisest Buddhist in Japan. It’s addressed to ruthless professional killers. They were head instructors charged with training ruthless professional killers in the employ of the most ruthless professional killing family that ever ruled a nation famous across the world for producing more ruthless professional killers than anyone else, ever. And he didn’t write to calm them down, he wrote to make them more effective. That should be enough encouragement.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Read the above reasons for mastery one more time and think about what that means. If you don’t regard the master sword instructors of the Shogun to be men with capacities and minds to emulate, you best think again about what personal power is.

“This Self has no shape or form, has no birth, has no death. It is not a Self that can be seen with the aid of your present physical eye. Only the man who has received enlightenment is able to see this. The man who does see this is said to have seen into his own nature and became a Buddha. It is to use neither thought nor reasoning and to look straight ahead.”

 

The Black Book Of Communism


The Black Book Of Communism reveals the tidal wave of collectivist blood.

Who wrote it: Jean-Louis Panné and Andrzej Paczkowskik.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A sobering, appalling catalogue of the murderous crimes of Communism and the mass, horrific death inflicted by murderous regimes in pursuit of their ideological collectivist state.

Why you need to master it: The reality of the dark world is sliced open and laid bare with this enormously researched and deeply disturbing iteration of the butchery, massacre, oppression and terror that this ideology foments among men.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Grim and unmistakable comprehension of the scope and scale of the Communist atrocities through history and the basal cruelty that forms the underpinning of the collectivist state. Through serious understanding and contemplation of the contents of this book, the Dark Triad Man educates his mind to the foul and inescapably sadistic nature of collectivist theory applied in practice, and layers that understanding through his assessments of political movements and ideologies of groupthink.

“This factual approach put Communism in what is, after all, its basic human perspective. For it was in truth a “tragedy of planetary dimensions” (in the French publishers characterization), with a grand total of victims variously estimated by the contributors to the volume at between 85 million and 100 million. Either way, the Communist record offers the most colossal case of political carnage in history.”

 

Man’s Search For Meaning


Man’s Search For Meaning is the autobiography of a psychiatrist imprisoned in a death camp.

Who wrote it: Victor Frankl.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir of life in Nazi death camps has riveted generations of readers. Based on Frankl’s own experience and the stories of his patients, the book argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward.

Why you need to master it: The mental, physical and emotional strength required to survive not merely the Nazi extermination program at Auschwitz, but also being drafted to serve as a compulsory accessory to the medical experiments of the “Angel of Death” Dr. Mengele, is an example to you of the most extreme circumstances imaginable.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Perspective on the shallow, fleeting and ultimately trivial importance and impact of daily life experiences when contrasted with the unimaginable horror of the worst charnel house to date in human history. Your problems, large as they may be, are dwarfed by Dr. Frankl’s experience.

“It is easy for the outsider to get the wrong conception of camp life, a conception mingled with sentiment and pity. Little does he know of the hard fight for existence which raged among the prisoners. This was an unrelenting struggle for daily bread and for life itself, for one’s own sake or for that of a good friend.”

 

Strategy and Military

Books by Ivan Throne | Free Ebook Modules | Castalia House Releases | Cultural Icons | History and Philosophy | Strategy and Military | Science and Technology | Selected Fiction

Go Rin No Sho


Go Rin No Sho is the underpinning of Western civilization, and the deep root of its literary, cultural, political and military traditions.

Who wrote it: Shinmen Musashi no Kami Fujiwara no Genshin, a 17th century Japanese psychopath.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: Basically the first men’s blog for warriors.

Why you need to master it: This book is one of the most powerful treatises on strategy that has even been written. It is a deep, disturbing resource. It’s not a “guide to business success” or “how to be a martial artist”. It was written by the most famous samurai in the world. He killed over 60 men before he reached the age of thirty. And he did it face to face, eye to eye, with live steel. He even switched to a wooden sword halfway through since he simply too good. (And he still killed all his opponents. You brag about your golf handicap?) This is his manual for making bladed love with death.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: An inexhaustible reservoir of bottomless wisdom, plus actionable techniques for employing the spirit in conflict. This resource is critical enough that we’ll be doing a number of posts on the content in the future.

“In the void is virtue, and no evil. Wisdom has existence, principle has existence, the Way has existence, spirit is nothingness.”

 

The Prince


The Prince is the immortal work of one of the greatest political observers and writers to walk the dark world.

Who wrote it: Niccolò Machiavelli, a Florentine diplomat immortalized by this seminal work.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: The foundation of political science and methodologies of princes in the dark world.

Why you need to master it: This is the original treatise on the management, maintenance and practical perpetuation of State power in the world of men and an absolutely irreplaceable perspective on the methodologies and imperatives of rulers and princes. Not mastering this book is like not learning how to drive, tie your shoes or walk upright. It is mandatory reading.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Beyond the mere memorization, practice and mastery of the principles of Machiavellianism, a deep comprehension and appreciation of how the local ruler will treat you is critical to your survival, operation and success in the dark world. This book is about truth and reality and how power is exercised in accordance with them. And it teaches you the meaning of ruthlessness.

“And that prince who, relying entirely on their promises, has neglected other precautions, is ruined; because friendships that are obtained by payments, and not by greatness or nobility of mind, may indeed be earned, but they are not secured, and in time of need cannot be relied upon; and men have less scruple in offending one who is beloved than one who is feared, for love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage; but fear preserves you by a dread of punishment which never fails.”

 

The Art of War


The Art of War is an essential component of the education of every human being.

Who wrote it: Sun Tzu, around 500 B.C.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: The ultimate book on generalship and strategy by the most famous military strategist in history.

Why you need to master it: This one of those resources that everyone has heard of but hardly anyone has read and even fewer have studied. The rare man who has not only studied but mastered the sublime and subtle contents of this treatise will understand how to move resources, companies and forces in the natural world. If you have not thoroughly studied and fully mastered the contents of the Art of War you are at the ridiculous mercy of scholars more dedicated than you.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: An understanding of the Way of strategy and the nature of terrain and the disposition of forces; a true embodiment of the aspects of the wise general and the stern commander; and the correct methods for the employment of men are your outcome.

“The general who is skilled in defense hides in the most secret recesses of the earth; he who is skilled in attack flashes forth from the topmost heights of heaven. Thus on the one hand we have ability to protect ourselves; on the other, a victory that is complete.”

 

The Face of Battle


The Face of Battle is superbly written by an extraordinarily insightful mind.

Who wrote it: John Keegan, one of the greatest military history writers of the 20th century.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: An examination of the common soldier’s experience at the battles of Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme.

Why you need to master it: There are thousands of books on military history, strategy and tactics. There are even more stories of personal experiences in wartime written by participants. And dozens of talented and insightful writers have tackled these disparate subjects with an eye to coming up with definitive review. John Keegan brings his sublimely incisive mind to tackling the actual experience of troops during these colossally significant and era-changing battles.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Learn the method by which John Keegan develops and displays the tapestry of sensation and engagement of the individual, broadens it to the collective experience of troop formations and then weaves them into a compelling, accurate picture of the battle as a whole. Keegan’s ability to zoom from the minute perspective of the man at arms to the confusion and clamor surrounding the officers in charge is a methodology that the Dark Triad Man must master.

“For it is not through what armies are but by what they do that the lives of nations and individuals are changed. In either case, the engine of change is the same: the infliction of human suffering through violence.”

 

Military Methods


Military Methods is a rare and critical look at murderous tactics of success.

Who wrote it: Sun Pin, the great grandson and worthy successor of Sun Tzu.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: An expert treatise on obtaining military victory through wise and robust tactics.

Why you need to master it: This is one of those resources that hardly anyone has heard of and fewer have read and almost no one has studied. The unique man who has not only studied this but mastered it is going to destroy you if you are unfortunate enough to make yourself his enemy. Sun Pin had his kneecap hacked away and half his face burned off by a betraying king and he came back and beat his enemy so badly the man cut his own royal throat in defeat. The deep study of this book – and study means precisely that, not “reading on the toilet every couple of days” – will provide you with a ruthlessly pragmatic guide to approaching the methods of war.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Tactics and methods and the ways in which he his posture may be threatened, and how to adapt that posture effectively and with a fearful exploitation of available advantages.

“For one who has really mastered the way of warfare, his enemy can do nothing to escape death.”

Chaos: Making A New Science


Chaos is utterly essential reading.

Who wrote it: James Gleick

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A thoughtful book on chaos theory, which covers the history of the concept and the development of it into a new science that has the potential to rank as powerful as Newtonian physics and quantum theory.

Why you need to master it: Chaos theory ranges from fluidics to fractals, from snowflakes to cream in your coffee. The concept of “sensitive dependence on initial conditions” is one of the best descriptors of how physical conflict works. Overlaying the principles in this book to the Art of War and other volumes will greatly expand your mastery of them all.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: A deep understanding of the concept of chaos produces an enormous sense of relief combined with a new freedom to understand and to act upon conditions as they appear. To the degree there is chaos in a system, the system is sensitive to your posture within it. By mastering the concepts of chaos and fluidity and predictive determinism and its limits, the Dark Triad Man achieves higher mobility and advantage within any system.

“Chaos appears in the behavior of the weather, the behavior of an airplane in flight, the behavior of cars clustering on an expressway, the behavior of oil flowing in underground pipes. No matter what the medium, the behavior obeys the same newly discovered laws. That realization has begun to change the way business executives make decisions about insurance, the way astronomers look at the solar system, the way political theorists talk about the stresses leading to armed conflict.”

 

The Crowd


The Crowd is a fascinating insight into the suddenly collective and destructive mind of human beings.

Who wrote it: Dr. Gustave le Bon, a French doctor who survived the Paris Commune.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: The manual for understanding how humans transform from individuals to crowds.

Why you need to master it: There is an unmistakable and wholly dangerous transformation that takes place when human beings shift from a collection of individuals into a crowd with a single mind. It is well known through history as a driving force that overthrows Caesars and collapses empires. Crowds commit the most appalling atrocities and effect the most incredible achievements through this collective genius and momentum. How crowds work, how crowds form, how crowds think, and how crowds can be utilized and exploited is the focus of this dissertation that Mussolini claimed he kept at his bedside.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: Machiavellian power over the masses, if he dares to learn it and apply it. The transformation of groups of men into a crowd is to create an unstoppable oceanic force of destiny. If you have your will behind it, the crowd will build you an empire. Be careful not to irritate the crowd, lest it rip you limb from limb without thinking. Because that’s what crowds do.

“It is not, then, the facts in themselves that strike the popular imagination, but the way in which they take place and are brought under notice. It is necessary that by their condensation, if I may thus express myself, they should produce a startling image which fills and besets the mind. To know the art of impressing the imagination of crowds is to know at the same time the art of governing them.”

Atlas Shrugged


Atlas Shrugged is the deeply philosophical and instructional novel set in a world that all too resembles our own.

Who wrote it: Ayn Rand, the writer from whose works the philosophy of Objectivism was born.

Where to get it: Available on Amazon.

What it is: A prophetic primer on the soul murdering evil of socialism and the sacred virtue of wealth by achievement.

Why you need to master it: The basic truth of socialism is that it is plunder. The basic truth of wealth by achievement is that it is the “motor that moves the world”. If you are successful you will be leeched upon. That is the nature of insisting that the power of the State take from some in order to give to others. This resource is also an enormous tome of thousands of pages. You’ll be spending months on it and emerging a changed man. Forty-page speeches by main characters are littered through Ayn Rand’s seminal novel. The discipline alone required for consuming and digesting the material is worth the significant investment of your time. The nobility, manhood, dignity and indomitability of its characters in the face of utter rotting evil is a lesson for you to embody in life.

What the Dark Triad Man gets out of it: The sacred value of the dollar. The holy imperative of the creative mind. The utter primacy of motive power and the infinite brutal horror of collectivism. And the inevitability of the lights going out. This is another resource we’ll be doing more discussion on in the future.

“Fight for the value of your person. Fight for the virtue of your pride. Fight for the essence of that which is man: for his sovereign rational mind. Fight with the radiant certainty and the absolute rectitude of knowing that yours is the Morality of Life and that yours is the battle for any achievement, any value, any grandeur, any goodness, any joy that has ever existed on this earth.”
