The Most Valuable Prize A Man Can Ever Possess


Honor has devolved into nothing more than a trite platitude in modern times

Jack Ronin is a Politically Incorrect Correspondent for The New Modern Man. He also runs The Savage Lifestyle.

Today a man’s word means little if anything.  He can lie, cheat and spew hateful rhetoric towards others with virtually no repercussions.  If you happen to belong to a protected class this goes doubly so.  Especially when a protected class is haranguing a designated scapegoat class (white males).

In this kind of world where the words out of someone’s mouth carry no weight, it is unmistakably apparent the lack of moral fiber prevalent in the average human being.  For hundreds and thousands of years there was a very different system at work which could smash down hard on the type of inferior person who spoke with little concern for the consequences.

Unearthing Honor

Our great societies of the past which made it possible to organize and expand into the global technological matrix we see unfolding today had a polar opposite approach to human interactions.  This was due in part to the hierarchical nature of those societies.

Indeed those cultures not sufficiently insulated from the lurking phantoms of toil, strife and hardship more accurately organized themselves around Natural Law.  This means that in society as well as found in nature,  everyone is NOT equal.

There are differing values for different people.  A blacksmith has a different value from a noble Lord.  A peasant farmer has a different value than the King of his nation.  In order for these systems to work there must be a stratifying element to contain and maintain these class values.  Enter the concept of Honor.

This concept is as old as society itself.  It even has a spiritual context.  Honor comes out of a man’s desire to bring order into the world and to safeguard his most esteemed prize, the words out of his mouth and his right to live and breathe unmolested.  This concept formed around the nobility.  Now since society in these times was based around class stratification, there was a spiritual context to this organization where at the top you have the nobility and the kings who gained their throne and lands by a divine mandate.  This mandate in reality means their own will to power and that is projected down through a royal bloodline.

While many modern historians may state that noble lords of the dark/middle ages behaved in a manner that more resembled a mob boss.  It is this author’s opinion that such historians are looking back at the past from their fagged out multikulti globohomo perspective.  They cannot imagine a world without state sponsored welfare, unlimited immigration, planned parenthood, LGTBTWTFEVER rights and so on.  In other words they are sick and can only see things through the bile colored spectacles set astride their gaybaby faces.


A society on the rise values honor

Ascendant Society

A society or nation that values honor also values the Warrior and martial conquest.  Heroic ideals were at the heart of every man.  While it may have been extremely difficult for the lower classes to ever attain noble status.  It was indeed possible for the strongest and stoutest of the lands.  Again the key to recognize here is that when a society is structured around Natural Law, the will to power of a man is his most prized asset in life.

Honor is the mechanism by which he defends that asset and enshrines it as a noble aspiration.

The noble classes were supposed to be elevated above the common folk by their blood or divine mandate.  Yet they were also charged with the defense of their lands as well as the upkeep and the safeguarding of all the lower classes.   When wars broke out in the kingdom it was the noble classes whom did all the fighting and the dying.  The commoners were largely protected in this regard from ever having to fight themselves.

Naturally an honor system would develop between the rulers who are actually dying to protect their lands and the ruled who only must give a portion of their produce towards the liege Lord.  A society structured like this is physically as well as spiritually ascendant.  We see this reflected in the architecture of the times.  Medieval kingdoms had their most prized spiritual structure, the church centered at the highest elevated point in the city.  All visitors coming upon the lands could look in wonder and amazement at the beautiful city which had its spiritual place of worship at the highest point in the entire city.  A shining beacon of light calling wayward travelers home.  An obelisk standing strong and virile reaching up to the stars.  The bright sun shining down which casts it’s rays of light as divine favor.

This is the time where all fantasy notions hearken back to.  The heroic defenders of their lands, the virgin princesses, benevolent kings and treacherous tyrants.  Every girl dreams of being a princess.  Every boy wants to be the knight.  These notions exist in us for a reason.  A painfully distant reason the modern world can never fulfill.

A Man’s Treasure

Today people are focused solely on the material.  Looking at modern advertising we see the gluttonous appeal to corporate products as somehow fulfilling a deep need within the individual.  Words in general don’t mean what they used to as the meaninglessness of life permeates a mentality where everyone and everything is equal.

People say things like…

______ is my favorite thing ever.   Do _______ for me and I will love you forever.


Omg I hate ______ and hope they die.

The one thing in common with these is that the words themselves are impotent.  No it’s not your favorite thing ever.  Tomorrow something else will occupy your reptilian brain.

No you won’t love me forever as your “love” is based on the material assets you gain from the interaction.

No you don’t really hate them and want them to die because you don’t have the balls to do it yourself.

People place all their value on plastic products and perishing items.  What if a man placed the value of gold, diamonds and endless wealth combined on a treasure that is not tangible?  What if he found a prize of incalculable value on something no one could ever take from him?


The value of honor is incalculable

A Pearl Of Great Price

A man’s honor is his gift to himself.  No man can give it to him.  No man can take it from him.  He gains it by consistently being a man of his word.  He holds it close to himself as a priceless ruby.  Whenever a man does not step up to defend his honor he tarnishes himself and pisses on his treasure as if it were nothing to him.  He says with his actions that, better to be a coward and live than be a hero and die.

He denies the spiritual value of intangible treasures like Honor and Loyalty.

If a man had a favorite child.  A beautiful son or daughter who shined brightly in every aspect.  What means would you go to in protecting them?  What expense would you spare in giving them all they need to become the best possible?  How many would you destroy who threatened their life with harm?

This is how a man should view his honor.  Worthy of protecting even if it means to the point of violence.  Men can come and take your gold, your lands and all you own.  They cannot take your honor.

Only for a man who has trampled over his own honor can the enemies of the world come to take the rest.

  • (in response to Victor)
    It’s my conclusion that no you cannot be a man of honor in the modern world without becoming an outcast or criminal. This is why I say that we must embrace the Villain archetype. We must learn to think like the Outlaw and have a new ideal of heroism. Because in order to get along within the west a man must disavow any kind of notions like honesty and integrity. He must lay prostrate at the altar of equality and admit to things he knows not to be true.


    • Unfortunately, my friend, we all know you are right – but allow me to linger foolishly in my delusions a while longer. It took me years to regain my honor. I might never be able to forgive myself or preach to other men the value of living a life of honor if I have to abandon my Integrity once more – it is not worth the price of my soul or what my future children might think of me… but as you know – I can very easily walk away from the fight and abandon all sides and fight only for my self… if there is no room for honor in the modern world Jack – then what are you talking about exactly? Expand on this piece, and give us Jack Ronin’s idea of Honor – what is Honorable and dishonorable behavior. How far can you go before you lose your Honor – honesty, I cant let go of, but you must stay honest with your tribe, Integrity? how far are you willing to go? Is there anything you won’t do – the man that gives less fucks might win the fight – but then what? what will we win – how far can a man go with out giving a damn before he becomes part of the problem?

      It easier to just not give a fuck – perhaps that is why men of Honor are so few.


      • I will attempt to explain as best I can. The zero fucks should be given towards modern society as a whole. It should exist as strong men thumbing their noses at the system of modernity which really is the triumph of the serf over the aristocrat. In our blood runs strong the blood of ancestors who had a martial spirit. Only those with a martial spirit can have virtues like honor. There are many , now who live and exist with an entirely different morality system. A system of inclusiveness and tolerance. As I have pointed out before this could relate to the differing hormones and bio mechanics prevalent in these groups.

        Today it is a sin to the liberal gay boy to have pride.

        When you have a system which impugns a man’s honor, tarnishes his integrity and pisses on his freedom, then it is no thing at all to disavow that system and to put every effort into destroying and/or alleviating oneself from it’s grip. This begins in the mind. We do not need the backing of the State nor we do need its permission to tell us we are men or we are right or wrong.

        WE decide this for ourselves and you could call that based on the golden rule. We already know whats right within us. We dont need the state to approve it for us. Our modern society is so ingrained with this programming that we as men must absolutely disavow all of it. Like I have said before. Declare war on the modern world.

        In a society in which faggots and tranny circus freaks are hoisted up as heroes, it is no thing to be the Villain. In fact that is good and necessary. How could we live with ourselves as men if seeing all this degeneracy we did and said nothing?

        The virtues of honor and integrity which mean so much to us are simply not compatible with the modern society with which we live. Therefore it would behoove us not to enter into agreements with the new world faggot types or to associate with them at all. Their morality system like I said is the polar opposite. We must accept that and let them die the inglorious death they so clamor for.

        Besides there are entirely too many useless eaters in the world. We are the few. The strong and proud. You must understand that since we are different in thought and in temperament that we simply are not compatible with the life we are being pigeonholed into living. No. We must resist! We must fight at all costs because Im quite certain that neither you nor me wish to be a part of that world.

        When I was much younger and into bodybuilding I offered “supplements” to others at the gyms I trained at. Even though this was technically illegal. I operated an honest business that offered better prices and quality goods. Even though the business would be condemned by society. I was likely operating the business with more honesty than many legitimate businesses.

        You can be condemned and blacklisted by society and still operate with honor and integrity. In fact it would seem to me that those outside of its tyrannical grip are the ones with the honor. We must do everything we can to save our posterity from ever being poisoned by the Leviathan. Which is why should I ever have kids they are going to be raised in absolute hostility to this system we find ourselves in.


      • We’re on the same page.


  • Honor as I understand it to be is:

    Integrity – Integrity is not compromising your moral and ethical principles, your word and your character. Integrity is knowing the lines you will not cross and standing firm on that decision no matter what threats or promises have been made. Integrity is honesty, keeping your word, your promises, and following through on all deals made. Integrity is being true to yourself and not making excuses or apologies for living your life in pursuit of nobility or simply wanting to be a better person than those without integrity.

    Dignity – Dignity is the manner in which you carry yourself without the absence of respect for yourself. Dignity is being conscious of your appearance and your behavior and presenting yourself always in a manner worthy of respect. Dignity is never abandoning your Integrity.

    Loyalty – Loyalty is being faithful to your brothers in arms, your family, your clan, your tribe, your religion and your beliefs. Loyalty is allegiance to one or all of the above and pacts of allegiance must be well considered and not made lightly – for making an oath is giving ones word and to break an oath is to compromise your Integrity.

    Courage – Courage is the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger or pain without fear. The strength for courage comes from within, it is inspired and nourished by faith in ones beliefs and convictions (the fixed firmness of those beliefs). Courage is not backing down, not compromising, and doing what is right – speaking the truth, acknowledging the truth an defending the truth in this dark modern world.

    These four qualities make up a man of honor. The question the modern man in pursuit of a life of honor must ask himself is “is there room in the modern world for men of honor?” For a man of these qualities is laughed at, shunned and persecuted in today’s world – if you are a white Christian heterosexual with conservative opinions and of traditionalist values who believes in preserving your culture and protecting the integrity and sovereignty of your nation – you have enemies my friend… and those enemies have no honor – they have no Integrity, for they are not honest and will compromise themselves for the attentions they will receive from their virtue signaling, they will compromise themselves for fame and money. They have no Dignity. They lack any respect for themselves as is plainly visible in the obese and unhealthy lifestyles they pursue, they deface themselves and their communities and call it self expression with out regard to the effect their actions have on others that do not wish to participate in their degenerate behavior – they will parade and dance down the street naked and simulating lewd acts in full view of children and to question their behavior is equal to you being a NAZI. They have no Loyalty to any one and will throw each-other into the fire before they abandon their cause – fear of not being accepted by the hive is what keeps them loyal to their system not faith in their doctrines, for history has shown the world time and again that the system they are working for simply does not work – anywhere… and they have no Courage – for they will not debate with you but they will argue with you or shut you up completely – because they know they cannot win an argument or a debate… they do not acknowledge facts or the truth and they dare not speak against the hive or state an opinion resembling disagreement with their agendas. They only have the mob of weak men (that enable) and disgusting irresponsible women – without any loyalties to themselves, to their families, to their culture – they have no traditions they wish to preserve and they have no God to believe in, therefore, no faith to find true strength and courage… and what they want is for you to live as they live – fat, weak, miserable, docile, and afraid… consuming anything and everything the television tells you to and providing nothing of value to your community – nothing spiritual and uplifting, nothing truly useful and helpful to better ones life, even technology is at a standstill unless it is something that can be used to remove more privacy and keep the masses docile and submissive to their masters… is there room for men of Honor in the modern world?

    Well… it is only because of men of honor that the world has not yet progressed into complete and total chaos – but it will be men of honor that return us to a world where men of honor are held with the respect they deserve… and that day cannot come too soon.
