Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.
The Sith code. All about strength and order through that strength. Let’s break it down, shall we?

I am an avid student of history. I love trying to get inside the minds of people in the past and try to understand why they do what they do and I love to draw the parallels to today and try to learn from it. The old saying “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it” is true. If you don’t learn from other’s mistakes, you will just have to learn from your own.
The Great Man Theory
The “Great Man” school of history is this: history can be largely explained by the impact of great men, or heroes; highly influential individuals who, due to either their personal charisma, intelligence, wisdom, or political skill Continue reading “Great Men of History”
Can modern communities do without great men? Can they dispense with hero-worship? Can they provide a larger wisdom, a nobler sentiment, a more vigorous action, by collective processes, than were ever got from the Titans? Can nations remain healthy, can all nations draw together, in a world whose brightest stars are film stars and whose gods are sitting in the gallery? . . . There is a sense of vacancy and of fatuity, of incompleteness. We miss our giants. We are sorry that their age is past. . . .We mourn the towering grandeur which surrounded and cheered our long painful ascent. Ah! If we could only find some new enormous berg rising towards the heavens as high above our plateau as those old mountains down below rose above the plains and marshes!
– Winston Churchill

I will come back and free you mom, I promise
The driving force through the first six episodes (the only ones that count) was a young Jedi’s desire to make the world a better place and the lengths he would go to achieve that. This desire would lead him to do some things passive observers would recoil from, but the drive was always to bring order.

When I first came into contact with Star Wars (2007) I was introduced to the prequels first. I read the books for Episodes I-III, along with several other accompanying novels and the Dark Horse “Clone Wars” comics (excellent, by the way).
My next foray was the Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn. These books are very good and kicked off the whole Expanded Universe (EU) of Star Wars. The EU is now known as “Legends” post-Disney, even though there are some things, such as Thrawn, that carry over into Disney’s Star Wars canon.

In marriage there are roles that each man and woman must take on. The man is expected to be a protector, provider, a strategist, and strong. A woman is expected to be dedicated, a care taker, loyal, and provide in a different way. Far too often you see married guys succumbing to every single request their wives have and you can almost feel the tension and see the broken spirit of the guy. While there will be some crossover of duties at times, the balance should be equal. Continue reading “Denying Her Requests”
A large part of the red pill community fails to address the next generation. Our sons and daughters are our legacy, and to come upon such theories and practices which we subscribe to, only to have them forgotten once we pass is tragic in itself.
My oldest son is reaching age ten now and I’ve noticed the shift he’s gone through over the past few years. He’s shifted his focus onto me more so than his mother. He tries to emulate dad more every day. I owe it to him to show him how a man should act. Continue reading “Leading Our Sons to Victory”
