"I AM DONE PRETENDING THAT I CARE ABOUT PRESERVING THE STATUS QUO. WHAT I WANT IS TO RESURRECT THE VIRTUE AND HONOR AND GLORY OF OUR ANCESTORS..."
A REVIEW: SET THE WORLD ON FIRE
PUBLISHED: 16th August, 2018 | By Richard Heathen
This past weekend saw the 1 year anniversary of the infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, an event that saw the dissident right fractured, demonized, and blacklisted. The event attendees doxxed, harassed and fired from their jobs, while the speakers and organizers have not only been kicked off social media, but have had their PayPal, AirBnB, and Uber accounts terminated because of their political views. This trend continues a year later, escalating to de-platform and de-person more moderate rightwing figures who had nothing to do with Unite the Right, such as Alex Jones and most recently Stefan Molyneux. This weekend also was the release of Set The World On Fire, a book written by Augustus Invictus, which ends with the devastating fall out of that event.
Best known as the ‘Satanic blood drinking Nazi’ candidate for Senate of the Libertarian Party in Florida, Augustus is also a former attorney and publisher of The Revolutionary Conservative website. This book documents his political campaign, including the events leading up to it, such as being kicked out of an occult order known as the Ordo Templi Orientis, and events just following, which includes Charlottesville.
Set The World On Fire is a raw and uncensored account of the events surrounding his campaign, and stands as Augustus Invictus’ answer to all the rumours and allegations that have been levied against him by his enemies and detractors. This book documents an entire rogues gallery of antagonists including Adrian Wyllie - former chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida, Paul Stanton - his opponent in the Libertarian Party primary election, James Wassermann a high ranking member of the Ordo Templi Orientis, the Antifa, as well as many other smaller actors.
This book doesn’t just cover the political drama going on during the campaign, but also delves into the turmoil going on in his personal life at that time, including his complicated romantic life. From his rocky relationship with the woman that would end up becoming his wife, as well as a string of others infatuated by the combination of his infamy as a radical politician and his involvement with the occult. The book doesn’t always paint Invictus in a favourable light as he honestly documents his own mistakes, weaknesses and past decadent and degenerate behaviour. If you’ve ever heard any of the outrageously salacious allegations surrounding him, were curious what they were all about, were interested in hearing his side of the story or were wondering how this blood drinking occultist who openly talked positively about both polyamory and psychedelic drugs became an austere rightwing reactionary, then this book is definitely for you.
As for Charlottesville, Invictus leaves us with a stern, but ultimately positive message on how we can move forward.
