The Charge of the Light Brigade, by Alfred Tennyson

“Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
“Forward the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Some one had blunder’d.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flash’d all their sabres bare,
Flash’d as they turn’d in air
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder’d.
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro’ the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel’d from the sabre-stroke
Shatter’d and sunder’d.
Then they rode back, but not,
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro’ the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wonder’d.
Honor the charge they made!
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred!”

What motivates such behavior? why honor was important to these men?

At the age of 18 I stood in a small office in a military base. I had to look on several words and choose one. I chose ‘infantry’. Why would anybody choose this option when easier and safer options are available? I didn’t knew it then in my blue-pill days, or more accurately I knew it and was not aware of it. Like basically all other human behaviors, the true inner motivation for my decision emanated from sex and reproduction. Young men would do crazy things to prove their sexual value and masculinity, and what better way is to prove you’re a man than doing something women can’t.

Today, police enforced state feminism methodically acts to destroy any bastion of masculinity, any boys only club is demonized (the US president himself had time to deal with a ‘mighty’ men only golf club). The politically correct brain thought police requires that there is nothing that men can do that women can’t. When reality deviates from this, they claim  discrimination and bend the system to accommodate women.

This is feminism’s way to suppress Jack Donovan’s gangs of men. But should we care? In a way, the army utilized men’s need to affirm their masculinity to the goals of the state. The army, and the state in general, will be less effective without utilizing men’s masculinity, and even less effective after replacing design for maximum efficiency by design allowing diversity.  Within a gang, honor is closely related to a man social and sexual status. However, honor as a virtue has no meaning outside a gang of men, without this context and in an atomized society, honor is a vice, a weakness, not a virtue.

A gang of men should only act to protect itself, not to serve others. The western state is not a gang of men anymore. In fact, the western state hates and fights to eliminate gangs of men and it is thus not worthy to be protected by gangs of men.

    That resonates with me for sure. I got let go from the service last year. Great marks, great rep, great service, but they had no room for me. When I was being processed every women there, every one of them, was for medical discharge for pregnancy. I heard most all of them talk how their units were deploying soon, that is a hint. All the minorities there were being discharged for disciplinary action, to a man! Only my roomate (minority) was being medically treated, but not seperated.

    All the white guys there like me, because there was no room. We represent the vast majority of deaths in the last, well every war of my nation. We are now the first to get booted for women and roughs. My country has serious issues, and no amount of whining and other investors cash will save us from a final reckoning.

    I would find it funny if were not so sad, I guess I still find it funny! 🙂
