Bound by Glorious Burden

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami

As it seems to be the case in many of my posts, this article is inspired by a rather heated debate that was happening on Twitter today between Rollo, aka The Rational Male, and Pat Stedman, but that actually isn’t what we’re going to discuss today.  What we’re going to discuss is an interjection by Ivan Throne within the exchange.  He brings up the topic of a man’s burden: Continue reading “Bound by Glorious Burden”

Do Not Tolerate Blind Tolerance

Tolerance is a term that is used in abundance nowadays and perverted the minds of many well-meaning people.  This isn’t a coincidence either.  It is a coordinated effort to slowly push the goal post against men, driving us deeper into depravity. Continue reading “Do Not Tolerate Blind Tolerance”

Lessons Learned From Chess

I wouldn’t say that I’m an avid Chess player or even a good one, but I do enjoy the occasional game.  As such, a few of the guys that I converse with on Twitter have created a Chess club of sorts where we challenge each other to battles of wits and tactics.  One particular game that I played against Hunter Drew at The Family Alpha stands out as one of my greatest victories, not necessarily because of any brilliant plays I made (I made quite a few blunders), but from the lessons I took away from that match.  These lessons translate nicely into the real world so I decided that today I would share them with you.

Appreciate Nature’s Balance

Today we’re going to cover a video that solidified my beliefs in what we’re trying to do here at A King’s Castle.  You could call this a part 2 to my article on Your Levels of Influence.  Nature is a powerful force and very adaptive to many things thrown at it.  That being said, it is like any other machine and if a cog is removed, the whole system suffers or begins to fall apart. Continue reading “Appreciate Nature’s Balance”

Every Man Should Write

“When I write I try as far as possible to forget I’m writing it at all.  I tell it down onto the page, as if I’m telling it to one person only, my best friend.”

-Michael Morpurgo

Writing is an underappreciated skill that most men abandon after their formal education is finished.  After all, who wants to write multiple page essays when they’re no longer forced to?  Yes, the modern education system is pretty effective at squashing the natural passions of many aspiring young men, but that’s a topic for another day.  Today we are going to discuss why you should pick back up your pencil and notepad and get to writing.

Weak Words Create Weak Minds

“Either you must control your thoughts or the outside forces will control them and be warned that the outside forces usually consist of fears, worries and doubts.”

-Maddy Malhotra

A comment I read on Twitter the other day has stuck with me.  It’s something that I’ve subconsciously been aware of for quite some time, but struck me on a deeper level when someone else actually said it out loud.  Today I’m going to let you in on a little secret:

Words have power.

Words have the power to build up or destroy, but there’s more to it than that.  Can you guess what it is? Continue reading “Weak Words Create Weak Minds”

Book Review: Dylan Madden’s “Think And Go Hustle”

You hear all over the Manosphere that you should be creating side hustles to work on.  The reasons for this may vary -getting out of debt, quitting your soul-sucking job, retiring early, etc.- but the underlying reason is the same.

Freedom. Continue reading “Book Review: Dylan Madden’s “Think And Go Hustle””

Manosphere Maxims

Early this week, our AKC Twitter profile broke the 800 follower count, a huge milestone for our site and message.  In celebration of this event, I have decided to compile some great Tweets circulating around the Manosphere community.  These tweets run the gamut of topics, but all are about making you a better man.
Some of the Tweets are pretty straightforward, while a few may take some time reflecting to really understand the deeper messages being conveyed.  Enjoy, gentlemen!
