Corsican Commander

Background of Chaos

May 5th, 1789

“What is the Third Estate? Everything. What has it been until now in the political order? Nothing. What does it want to be? Something.”

The Third Estate represented 95% of the French population and was made up of lawyers, local officials, tradesmen, or land owners. The Third Estate had born the tax burden without equal representation in the governance of Continue reading “Corsican Commander”

The Sith Were Right

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?

Great Men of History

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”

Why We Need Great Men

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

Bringing Balance Through Order

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.

The Need for 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.

Leading Our Sons to Victory

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”
