“we make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. we laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” ― c.s. lewis, the abolition of man i heard a story told about a child who was raised in a coffin. i haven’t been able to verify this story. likely an urban myth but chilling nevertheless. what i did find was an academic paper written by david naugle. naugle shares the shocking story of a boy who was raised by his grandparents because his parents abandoned him. the grandparents assume the task of raising the child yet they do so very grudgingly. the child is allowed to leave the coffin only in order to eat or to go the bathroom. the boy is confined to this box for some bizarre reason and believes that all children are raised in coffins. when the authorities come to rescue him they find that the child had no idea there was any other way to live. this was the child’s reality. it seems his world was turned upside-down.

naugle goes on to title his paper, ‘the abolition of man’. this title is from one of my favorite books by the writer, c.s.lewis and it was first published in 1943. in lewis’ book he writes about those sets of objective values that all traditional cultures have shared throughout time although there were some minor distinctions whether they be christian, jewish, pagan or something other. lewis took to task those critics who tried to deny objective values and in turn replaced the determination of reality by people who used their subjective feelings. today we see it frequently done by our “objective” news media and by propagandists virtually everywhere no matter what side of the isle they are on. be a critical thinker. i don't care if people are talking about gun fu or tactics, politics or fitness. be someone who can understand simple and complex concepts and learn to think for yourself. stand in the coliseum alone if you must. don't regurgitate other people's words. make your own way #apparel #fitness #running #crossfit #climbing #tactical #merica #sof #edc #violentwhennecessary #gunsdaily #weaponsdaily #igmilitia #igdaily #2a #gunslifestyle #edc #carryeveryday #sunsoutgunsout #traintowin

If you’re in a leadership role and have never mentored young men then keep in mind that many young men look like adults but are still operating as teens. they are still trying to figure life out and a good mentor can help point the way. trying to figure out how to be responsible, how to be a man in a world with changing definitions and concepts, and how to fit in a group is difficult for a youth on his own; whether you are a company commander or a team leader doesn’t matter. youth needs good leaders to give them structure. learning how to navigate through life should first start at home. father and son hunting rituals are a good place to start. father and daughter events can prepare a young lady for more challenging events in life such as being away at college while under the demands of her sorority or life in the military.

the proud few who end up going through law-enforcement academies, boot, flight or basic training just might learn some pretty important values such as : commitment, duty, self-respect, sacrifice, loyalty and personal courage. certainly youth can learn to be productive citizens and important members of their nation and communities without enlisting in the service. the military is just one of many gateways to learn some important lessons.

young men and men don’t need to endure the pain of the sioux okipa ritual. but they should be able to understand why it is important to have rituals like that in order to be a member of a group. it is a difficult world for youth to navigate alone. as good men we have a duty to guide them. it’s up to every single one of us to create a healthy rite of passage in our homes for our sons and daughters to follow. if they are taught early on to honor themselves and others then we are maintaining and preserving some pretty important values for the next generation to follow. teach the young how to value themselves and the society they belong to and they will go onto become good leaders. #thisisthedayyourlifewillsurelychange #apparel #fitness #running #climbing #tactical #merica #sof #edc #violentwhennecessary #gunsdaily #weaponsdaily #igmilitia #igdaily #2a #gunslifestyle #edc #carryeveryday #sunsoutgunsout #swat

I know enough that in order to make a difference in this world we need to open our toolbox and fix the things that are wrong. some men are not equipped for that. all they have is a hammer to repair the things that are broken; smash this, smash that, obliterate every precious thing in their life and then some. beat on the wife, beat on the kids, beat on a war drum and blame the world.

smashing machines run amok. 51 years into my life i now believe we’re obligated to make things right by restoring the c**p that we broke. before we smashed it into c**p with our smashing machine it used to be ‘something’. sometimes we smash beautiful things; hammers used to solve a problem which required a paintbrush.

what’s in your toolbox? all of us, whether we’re a police officer, veteran or good ol’ citizen of the world inevitably are going to face one of two things in this life; humility or humiliation. humility is a free choice and humiliation is t****t upon us when we don’t choose the first option. pride has always told me that i had to win the argument. smash this, smash that, and sometimes get myself smashed badly in the process. whether we weren’t given the right tools for our toolbox is a matter of debate. in childhood i was handed a hammer for my toolbox and that’s all i used most of my life; i had the same battered box and used the same instrument that most men use. today i realize that i’ve changed and become more of a man. not every insult in my life has to lead to a fight. not every situation has to be taken as an insult. some men, even with a lot of martial ability, cannot walk away from a fight. the idea isn’t to always engage although sometimes it might be right to do so. my question to myself today is: “today did i make things right?” ~m kurcina image of pankration gloves #apparel #fitness #running #crossfit #climbing #tactical #merica #sof #edc #violentwhennecessary #gunsdaily #weaponsdaily #igmilitia #igdaily #2a #gunslifestyle #edc #carryeveryday #sunsoutgunsout #traintowin #outdoors #gearreviews #police #hiking #vet #fashion

I was thinking about the latest post and i all i could think of is rest. you know, what do vikings do when they're not slaying ice giants, and running like n***d berserkers in the snow? are they drinking mead, patching wounds, hunting, seeing the blacksmith, or likely away on commercial expeditions and even pillaging? they're doing something other then slaying. what are you doing today to give you extra wind in your sails for the next journey? we can't be bone breakers 24/7. we need to rest. yet warriors sometimes come home to quarters in disarray; the wife is gone, the home needs fixing, friends are dead, brothers have passed and a man needs time to regroup. it would be good to hear someone say, "you've carried the load so now it's time for me to take care of you." but that's not always the case. we're alone in our empty longhouse except for our animals to keep us warm. sometimes we have to behave like animals. sometimes we men must act like bears, right? we have to go away for awhile and lick our wounds, shout at the sky or sit like wildmen in our ashes until we recover. do it for an hour or a day. let our sensibilities rejuvenate so we can inspire terror in the ones we hate and give confidence to the ones we love. some men became shape-shifters, half man half animal. do that for awhile. howl and rest. good luck warrior. give your body mind and spirit a rest. find somewhere to go for respite, you need it. take some time out for you and then go out and slay again. i mean that. #thisisthedayyourlifewillsurelychange #apparel #fitness #running #climbing #tactical #merica #sof #edc #violentwhennecessary #gunsdaily #weaponsdaily #igmilitia #igdaily #2a #gunslifestyle #edc #carryeveryday #sunsoutgunsout #swat #outdoors #gearreviews #police #hiking #vet #fashion #spotterup
