What is a retrograde?  

A retrograde calculates, night and day, how to return the world to:  

  • the Old Order of moral and sexual decency,
  • classical masculinity,
  • national sovereignty and national borders,
  • faith and hope and charity,
  • goodness and beauty and truth,
  • Christian civic liberty,
  • and most importantly, the social kingship of Christ.   

In the words of Shakespeare, a retrograde is one of God’s spies.  

The retrograde has the unique capacity for understanding the stark chasm between the degenerate, socialist-infiltrated world of decay on one side and the well-meaning, good-hearted, but clueless Christian world on the other.   

In a time of such profound decay, being one of God’s spies is a last resort and a pure necessity: it involves not “deep cover,”—i.e., acting like the enemy—but rather “half cover”: acting as a “contra” in the secular arena, a crypto-Christian counterinsurgent willing to fight like a Navy Seal and to think like a counterintel officer.   

Retrogrades . . . to the streets: our aim is to reverse the deliberate, deuced machinations of “radicals” like Saul Alinsky who, by penning the rulebook of radicalism, threw down a challenge that has, until now, gone unanswered. Rules for Retrogrades is the handbook men of good will need to win the culture war! Here is a sampling from the call to action found within these pages:

  • No truth is “off-limits”; we must never be ashamed to be candid.
  • It is a damnable lie that humility disallows Christians from standing up (for what they believe) in the cultural and political forum!
  • Control of language is control of thought; don’t let radicals control the language.
  • Never trust a man who is unwilling to have enemies.
  • Radicals form coalitions but retrogrades form fellowships.
  • The root of cultural decay is feminism: end feminism to end radicalism.
