For those of you who have read Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard, would you mind telling me what the philosophy is? I cannot find the book in physical format or on the internet, so I would like to garner some information on this book.

I appreciate anyone who can help me out!

It's essentially reheated Nietszche with more racism. It's fucking garbage IMO, my copy is up for trade if anyone wants it.

The name Redbeard doesn't really sound like a Philosopher.

Perhaps it's an euphemism for Redneck? ;)

over-the-top social Darwinism and Machiavellism with some ideas close to Objectivism
(many of these ideas turn up in LaVey's works)

Does anyone know yet who actually wrote it? Is it actually possible it was Jack London?
