Chivalry-Now is a philosophy that embraces truth, reason, self-discovery and compassion. It's intent is to update and reclaim the best qualities of Western culture. This website serves as an archive of its main articles.

Chivalry-Now is not an order. We have no grandmaster, official hierarchy or religious requirement.

We are not a corporation, business or non-profit, and reject all partisan ties. We ask for no fees or donations, and have no hidden agenda.

We are not a fantasy group, and take our mission seriously.

What we are is a loose network of people drawn together by an affinity for Nature’s Law as articulated by the 12 Trusts. What does that mean? It means that we advocate for principles of conscience based on courtesy, truth, justice, equality, and assisting those in need. Our intent is to help people live authentic lives, thereby healing our broken culture one person at a time.

Anyone inspired by its tenets is welcomed as a member of our informal fellowship. Truly committed members are considered Knights.

Here's a quick review of the Chivalry-Now Concepts described in The Deeper Quest:

Nature's Law is the application of reason to conscience. This is recognized as the basis for our judicial system, and the attainment of personal autonomy. While conscience tells us what is right and wrong, reason provides a knowledgeable response. One without the other does not work well.

Telos is that instinct, or "inner aim," that pushes us to develop ourselves for the greater good. Ever get that feeling of discontent that your life isn't what it should be? That's Telos.

Areté is the proficiency of applying reason to virtue in order to attain moral autonomy and competency. This is considered the highest good for human beings to attain in their lives. The development of real virtue is the purpose of freedom.

Anagnorisis is the moment when truth confronts one's ego and shatters previous illusions and prejudices - a turning point when a new person of conscience is born.

Kairos (capital "K") refers to points in history when disparate factors converge to produce dramatic leaps in human consciousness (the Axial Age and Age of Enlightenment being the most famous). It is our hope that a new Kairos event is coming. One of the purposes of Chivalry-Now is to contribute to such an event by preserving ideals of value. When spelled with a small "k," it refers to the ever changing moment in time.

Ordo Mundi means Order of the World, a relationship with nature which includes respect and understanding.

Mission:

"We come from the shadows as advocates of light — to replace what was lost, fix what was broken, and renew a pervasive conscience long considered dead."
