“For nearly two hundred pages phrase after phrase descends like a club, bent upon smashing to flinders the church and state at which it is aimed.” –Liberty, October 1933
Might is Right is a frank and brutal look at the world we live in. There is no comfort to be found within its pages, but there is truth. Instead of faith and idealism, Might is Right offers only one solution to the troubles that plague human society: MIGHT is the power of the individual, and that is the only foundation of RIGHT!
Originally published in 1896, Might is Right inspired a wide array of social and political movements. From radical socialists to Satanists, egoists to anarchists, and every flavor of freethinker in-between, Might is Right has left an indelible mark on the very society it condemns. Banned by booksellers and condemned by censors, Might is Right is one of the most infamous and dangerous books ever written.
Tiffany Thayer, founder of the Fortean Society, referred to Ragnar Redbeard as, “The Nietzsche of Chicago, the Max Stirner of Evanston.” Whether Arthur Desmond—the man behind the mask—lived up to those comparisons is a matter of debate, as his life’s story is still revealing itself more than a century later. What we can say for certain, is that the brutal nature of Ragnar Redbeard’s magnum opus will inspire and disgust anyone who dares read it.
Featuring a brief introduction by Kevin I. Slaughter, this Underworld Amusements paperback is a full facsimile of the 1927 edition of Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard, originally published by Dil Pickle Press of Chicago. It was the last edition of the book published during the author’s lifetime, and its printing was overseen by the man himself. At long last we can once again read Might is Right exactly as Ragnar Redbeard intended it to be read, in all its pure, unadulterated fury.
