New Post - Finding Your Direction in Life

If you’re here you’ve probably already read about our philosophy and call to action, the pursuit of True Glory. If you haven’t, you probably should now. Your Great Work will be the means by which you achieve the end of True Glory.

Your Great Work isn’t just “your passion” or “your calling.” It is what you were put in this world to do. It is how you will beautify the cosmos that created you. It’s how your name will attain immortal kleos.

It’s what you are.

It’s something that you’ll approach with laser focus. It’s something that nothing should stop you from doing.

New Post - Should You Go to College?

You're a 17 or 18 year old kid just starting your senior year of high school. It's a big year. You're on the cusp of a major change in life, the likes of which you've never yet experienced. In one year's time, everything you've known, your entire lifestyle essentially from the time you were 5, will be turned on its head. You're also facing one of the biggest decisions of your life, certainly the biggest you've ever faced so far.

New Post About Political Senses of Entitlement

I'm running for mayor on 12 issues. If you agree with me on 9 of them, vote for me. If you agree with me on all 12, see a psychiatrist.
This was one of the famous witticisms of the 105th Mayor of New York City, Edward Irving Koch, who I had the good fortune of meeting a few times before his death in early 2013.

It's also this Koch-ian pragmatism that I think a lot of younger guys just don't get. I get your desire for perfection in politics. I was there in my late teens and early twenties. Perhaps it's simply a necessary part of life. You need to go in guns blazing. You need to learn to shoot first before you can become a sharpshooter. I used to be a hardcore libertarian to the point that I was an Anarcho-Capitalist.

But years of experience and thought will change your perspective, even if you remain essentially a "radical." You realize that it pays not to have a political sense of entitlement.

New Post on the Ways You've Been Lied To

I have some bad news. If you’re a man, especially if you’re a young man, you’ve been lied to.

These lies have been planted within us nearly from the day we first started to understand language. This script is not entirely malicious. Much of it used to be good advice. However, it is no longer very useful, and will leave many men in the lurch if they follow it, as it has set me back some years. The younger you discover the script of lies, the better, and fortunately, I have in my 20’s. Other men have been burned, and younger guys are being fed into the buzzsaw.

Hopefully, a few of those younger men are reading this entry. It’s written especially for you. Read on to recognize the lies so you can prepare yourself to take action accordingly.

New Post on the "Refugee" Crisis - My Experiences Working with REAL Refugees


Looking back on it five years later, it almost seems like a paradise lost. A lot of Americans still had their old flip phones, including me, so smartphone infestation hadn’t yet reached critical mass. There wasn’t as much attention whoring. “Social justice” insanity hadn’t quite yet completely taken over the media and popular culture both in the Anglosphere and Europe. The epidemic of weird tattoos and neon hair had not yet begun.

Most importantly, for purposes of this article, it was a relatively peaceful and stable time. Sure, the Iraq War was still on, but it was winding down. The wider Middle East was also fairly stable. The group that would become ISIS was almost extinct. The destabilizing “Arab Spring” was still a year away, and the failed effort to impose democracy in Iraq had not yet been attempted to be exported to the rest of the Middle East.

It was an interesting time in my own life too. Through circumstance, I wound up working for the International Rescue Committee, an organization that provides services to refugees around the world. My task was to tutor children and adolescents so that they could better understand the English language, and in so doing also act as an ambassador that would help the refugees acclimate themselves to life in the United States.
