Some say that this book, found in a safebox in the port area of Kowloon, was dictated, because Bronze Age Pervert refuses to learn what he calls "the low and plebeian art of writing." It isn't known how this book was transcribed. The contents are pure dynamite. He explains that you live in ant farm. That you are observed by the lords of lies, ritually probed. Ancient man ...more

Jun 12, 2018 rated it it was amazing be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Bronze Age Mindset. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of Vedic philology most of the points will go over a typical reader's head. There's also BAP's Nietzschean outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Japanese nationalist literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of ...more
BAP presents no formal arguments in this book and so I cant present back any of my own to refute his. Im left with describing my own impressions and recounting some of the salient points he makes. Consequently, I will not bother inhibiting my bias.

In the same vain as Might is Right, BAM is a ridiculously prescient and subtly funny book meant for all young warriors on the Alt-Right. Society has suppressed young mens natural instinct to conquer and create space for themselves. Embracing the Bronze Age mindset allows us to reassert our natural place in the world as pirates and barbarians. ...more

I am fascinated by what is to come. For someone who came of age imbibing the narrow, facile, weak, always-second-place conservative pieties of the late 1980s and the 1990s, the chaotic fluidity of todays Right is something entirely new. There are no straight lines of sight; all is a jumble of splintered mirrors. In this chaos, of which Trump is only one manifestation, it is a sign of something, or rather of many things, that this self-published book by an pseudonymous author, calling for ...more

Think Nietzsche with a bit of Julian Jaynes and some eco-fascism thrown in, written in the web-right vernacular, and you get Bronze Age Pervert. Prose both conversational and exalted, with equal doses of humor and inspiration. Very pagan in its ethos (though the author does not criticize Christianity its clear where his sympathies lie). A worthy first effort by BAP and worth a read for every man of the right. Hail the Pervert. ...more

As a certified bugman, this book terrifies me to no end, yet I find myself unable to put it down. It is clear to me now that yeast-people such as myself have no choice but to SUBMIT. The storm is coming; little time remains until BAP and his posse of modern conquistadors come out of their tropical paradise to punish humanity for its sins. Until then, I'll be reading this book again and again.

This book is a masterpiece. The first time I finished reading it I immediately read it again. I think I have read it three times from cover to cover already, and there are certain parts I have re-read many more times than that simply for pleasure. I will write a more in-depth review at a later time, but suffice to say: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I think this book would be loved by just about anyone.

Wow! That WAS different!! One minute I felt the Perv was inspirational, veering towards brilliance, and in the next 60 seconds just downright whacky. The combination of brilliance and whackiness made for a refreshing and compelling read so much so that Ive charged through it and got myself some mental indigestion!

Brave, incisive and witty writing, dont be fooled by the pidgin English which the Perv adopts from time to time, when he remembers. Any moron - speak is purely for effect and comes

The most interesting aspect of this book, I believe, is its language. A language weve missed since Nietzsche, whom the author of this book apparently admires very much.
Any philosophy contains some right and some wrong ideas and boy how many messed-up ideas this book have- but in the past period all the modern philosophy books I have read were either written in academic, complicated style started in the same way with definitions and ended with some shy conclusions; or they were written in

Flaming garbage

If it was just the fact that I disagreed with the politics of this book, the score wouldnt be so slow. The author, either a 20-something year old repressed man child who is probably gay but hates that fact about himself, decides that everyone who isnt white, male, or in shape, is basically an animal and deserves death. The author also thinks that its a great idea to not write proper sentences. But the best thing about this vomit of words is that its just a large collection of

This book was a waste of time and money. It is mostly ramblings of a well-read author with ornate flashy language(which is alright) - problem is, it is incredibly low on substance. Author takes forever to get to his message and seems to be stuck in teenager mentality(other than that, there is plenty of obnoxious material in this book). Ratings of this book seem artificially bumped up, almost all 5-star reviews are high on hyperbole. Save yourselves time and money. This is not a great book that ...more

Makes you want to eat a raw carrot salad and organ meat stew after a sun & steel-style workout in the tropics. Of course, per the advice found on the bottom of pg.170, I hereby publicly denounce BAP and his spiritual vigor!

Homos and Traps. -- One feature of this new condition in modern age is that the masters are hidden. -- Anyone born with a will to conquest and expansion, any specimen born to courage and the expansion of boundaries, will feel thwarted now, will awaken at a young age to find themselves in a world ervaded by an evil and smothering shadow that seeks to blot out their spirit and break them.

When I was a young boy I had vivid dreams. Terrifying in both their nature and scope. I dreamt I was perched on a mountain top, high above a civilization full of small men who screamed as lightning struck again and again and again. Leaving the hamlet and its inhabitants in a smoking pile of rubble. I dreamt of open plains which I wandered through directionless. I dreamt of starry skies where I communed with the moon from dusk to dawn. One night I even dreamt I was an eagle who became possessed ...more

I went into Bronze Age Mindset with two preconceptions; it would be really funny and underneath the provocation the underlying ideas would be relatively boilerplate. I was wrong on both counts.

At least the book is honest from the beginning the introduction claims no interest in converting people, and is clear that the book is written only for those who already agree with Bronze Age Pervert (BAP). It is true that Bronze Age Mindset is exclusive in the most literal sense; its first ten pages are

A rant about the merits of the bronze age heroes and living like them, and how they were in some ways superior to modern people. Even the deranged leaders of history (e.g. Nero) were superior to modern whacko dictators in how inspiring they were. (OTOH, this values a few exceptional things more than daily quality of life).

I read this only because people were trying to ban it. I went between saying it's a 1-2 star book (which it is in parts), or a 5 star book (which it also is in parts). It's

This is some out of the box thinking, in a good way, written in broken English. A true wondering mind that is full of questions and theories, even a few wacky ones, hilarious and serious. The author talks of many great men in history to use as examples to improve ones mindset and inspiration to greatness. He also touches on things like reincarnation, artificial intelligence, evolution, philosophy, aesthetics, strength, ancient civilizations, cosmos, eugenics, heroism, barbarianism, being a ...more

A well written and thought provoking neo-Nietzschean call for radical masculine individualism.

Iconoclastic and razor sharp prose. I found myself repulsed at times, inspired at others. This alone recommends it to a certain type of readerone who has the maturity to sit quietly and listen to a well thought out point of view and not freak out when words like faggotry are dropped in the middle of a well crafted sentence.

It does what philosophy is intended to dochallenge assumptions, raise

I strongly suggest having one or several of your war brides rub your body with coconut oil (NON-HYDROGENATED ONLY!) prior to reading this book, as its intense energies may be too much for your unprotected skin to tolerate.

This books brings with it a lot of baggage. On the one hand, it is kind of a manosphere book, which means that it has some very vulgar language throughout (I would never recommend this to a woman, so it won't appear on my facebook feed), some very non-Christian ideas, and some other politically incorrect stuff that I've probably forgotten about and might have to disavow if I felt like it.

It's also incredibly popular and successful and if there's a group of people doing the things he talks about

If you cloned Yukio Mishima and Nietzsche, then used modern SCIENCE to let them have an offspring, added a bit of trenbolone ('toxic masculinity' in molecule form...) and 4chan references, along with some neo-paganism (not so dissimilar from Jamie Lewis of CnP fame), and then raised them on a media diet of Pietro Boselli underwear ads and right-wing dictator propaganda films, you'd get something resembling BAP, the author of this book.

Moral qualms aside, the book is entertaining. The prose is

“Among your instincts you will find the longing for strong friendships, that the modern evil tries to snuff out. And they have good reason to try this, because every great thing in the past was done through strong friendships between two men, or brotherhoods of men, and this includes all great political things, all acts of political freedom and power. The modern zoo wants you instead to be a weak and isolated "individual".” 16 likes
