Injustice Book Review: The Nine Laws by Ivan Throne

Cower not, fierce reader! This day we have good duty, if not easy. Nay, today's duty will be difficult, but you will be changed by it. This book may be aimed at men, but that is not to say that it is only for men. This book has much in common with mindset books, but it delves deeper into a philosophical approach. Let us examine this text for its crimes!

First, it is aimed at men, and helping them succeed and become dangerous within their realms. Ivan has received statements that it should be a crime to read this book. He's gotten death threats for having written it. As a result of this book, many an SJW takes aim on Twitter, and fails miserably, as though the "creativity" of a brainwashed fool lacking proper vocabulary would be a threat to him. He's overcome much, and shares two extremely difficult challenges that he has faced. 

Second, one aim of his book, perhaps a secondary one, is to help the healing process for men that have been injured in heart, spirit, and mind. I could speculate as to the nature of faith that Mr. Throne possesses based on this, but out of respect for his non-sectarian approach, I shall not here. 

He advocates for the building of men through community with men, something sorely lacking throughout most of society.  In this day, his advocacy is seen as for "toxic masculinity", rather than as building leaders, warriors, and sages of society. He pushes against the idiot male stereotype, and against the aging frat boy through instead the idea of encouragement toward larger and larger goals.

Mr. Throne takes a view of Narcissism, Machiavellianism, and Psychopathy that I have not seen before, and while perhaps it underscores many of the mindset/male improvement type book, it is explicit here. These traits are not allowed to run amok, but rather controlled, for each can lead to ruin in their own way.

While some parts of this book may appear to be cosmological hand waving, as I delved further I saw those components rather held together the lessons and methods of thought. Some of these are merely granting better questions to ask of oneself than you may have posed. Others may be routine, but the whole fits together well with them as crucial pieces.

I've read Mr. Cernovich's Gorilla Mindset. While I learned some things from it, there were some reasonings and ideas missing that prevented me from better use of the material. I'm not bashing Mike's book, but Ivan Throne underpinned everything  with a structure so that the damaged and introspective might better come to comprehension, and then plan, followed by action. I can say this from experience; I lost my ability to form plans well over a decade ago, when a family emergency prevented me from applying for graduate school. I will not say that it is restored to me, but perhaps, I can start to see a path again. I will be revisiting this text again, as well as Cicero's On Duties, as being essential to productive, responsible, and strategic(non military) thought.
