A truly authoritative edition of Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard. The variant text of five original editions harmonized into one, with thousands of previously undocumented footnotes and citations. New introduction by Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan. Newly indexed.
Might is Right is a book of action and not belief. It is poetry, not a platform. Since the first edition in 1896, Might is Righthas inspired those across a dynamic political and philosophical spectrum. The consistent core of the work is this: the individual is against everything but the self, and any means of proliferation of the self is the only good. Might is the power of the individual, and that is the only foundation of Right.
Published in 1896, Might is Right went through five editions during the lifetime of Ragnar Redbeard, who had just moved to America, escaping the law in Australia. Every one of these had a plethora of changes and reversions, many subtly coloring the meaning of the text, others leaving literal gaps on the printed page where words were physically removed from the printing plates.
Now Might is Right: The Authoritative Edition not only reveals one authoritative text, but adds thousands of citations and notations to reveal a much greater story underneath the text. Every literary reference is cited, every name is given biographical sketch. Redbeard's voice is given echo in some of the contemporary and historical figures that his ideas of an amoral philosophical egoism are in accord with.
Magus Peter H. Gilmore provides an introduction that gives context to the book and how it was deconstructed and used to create the first chapter of Anton Szandor LaVey's "diabolically self-deifying" The Satanic Bible.
