If The Barbarian Bible offends you, good! Ianto Watt isn't concerned with making friends or soothing bruised egos. Instead, Watt shares his unique and always controversial view of world history and what the future holds.
Through a combination of simple math, common sense, and liar's logic, Watt challenges established views of world history, proving the modern world is heading for a repeat of the fall of Troy, and what such an event will mean for humanity.
In Watt's world view, four groups dominated the last two thousand years: Imperial Rome (now represented by the United States), Holy Rome, The Chosen Ones, and the Barbarians. Each group is fundamentally opposed to the other three, forming uneasy alliances only to strike at (and betray) each other. Just to make it interesting, each group also has a major impostor.
Watt's arguments are likely to offend many in the English-speaking world, the seat of modern Imperial Rome. At the same time, he aims his iconoclastic sarcasm at all four world groups (and their impostors), making scathing commentaries on religion, politics, culture, and social assumptions. Controversial, offensive, and revolutionary, Watt's opinions generate heated debate in all who read them.

Ianto Watt, the Last Welsh Barbarian, is the pseudonym of a self-described contrarian who has little time for those who perpetrate and perpetuate the cycle of mistakes we call history.
Watt has been a successful entrepreneur, starting, developing, and selling twelve cable television companies. He's been active in politics, serving in the Electoral College as well, while angering people on both sides of the political aisle (which suggests to him he was doing something right).
The fourth of fifteen children, Watt began working at age ten. He has an MBA and a journalism degree, and his core characteristic is his refusal to mistake the blind repetition of "facts" as the truth. He looks for the real motivation for historical events, and has fun doing it!
