A Man’s Guide to Finding Freedom

A Man’s Guide to Finding Freedom

A few years ago I spent a few months in Italy, came home, and then did another few months in Argentina and Uruguay. During both trips, where I would work and then explore, I had moments where I rented a car. I didn’t rent the car on either trip to get to a place, but to get out of the predetermined routes of trains and busses that had become the norm of the trips.

I was sick and tired of having to go where the route would take me, rather than spontaneously going wherever the hell I wanted to go.

In Italy I wanted to save, to not spend too much, to spend a good amount of time in each town, but it become too much. It’s a small country. It lacks space, and if you don’t have a car, you won’t find it.

In Argentina, it’s much more spread out, but again, if you don’t have a car you can’t really see all the place has to offer. When I rented the cars I went hiking, horseback riding, even just driving to the coast in Italy for a swim on a whim rather than having to plan an excursion.

Men have always fought and died for freedom and for power. We crave liberty. It’s like we’re born with a chip on our shoulder to stand up and against anyone who tells us what to do. Some of us never rid ourselves of that chip.

When we’re confined, maybe in a job we hate, a routine we’re not fond of, even poverty or debt or a lack of meaning and purpose, man, it’s crushing. We can feel the vice-like grip of having a lack of freedom squeezing, suffocating the masculine energy, power, and drive that once flourished.

Men. Need. Freedom. We need liberty. We need both in many ways, different forms, and we need to find it and create it or we’ll end our lives feeling as though we never actually lived. We’ll feel that we existed, and often in response to what others wanted us to do, or what others want for us, or in response to our surroundings that we never took control over.

A Man’s Guide to Finding Freedom

Safety: The Enemy of Freedom

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” ― Benjamin Franklin,

When we give up freedom for safety we lose. We all lose. Individually, if safety becomes the singular pursuit, we remove any chance of adventure, you know, that thing that feeds our soul and makes us feel alive. We also strip ourselves of being able to defend ourselves, giving that job to another.

Safety cannot consume us. Freedom, must.

How can you experience the thrill of a hunt, a hike, or even simply being in the great outdoors, if you’re consumed by trying to be perpetually safe?

The quest to be safe stands between a man and what he must deem as living, the verb, the act of being alive. We need danger if we’re to have freedom and liberty.

Don’t Fuck With Someone Else’s Freedom

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves”
― Abraham Lincoln

If you don’t like hunting or guns, then don’t hunt or buy guns, but don’t you dare tell someone else that they have to live how you want to live. Your freedom and their freedom have to be respected.

We’ve become a society where we’re more concerned about telling others how to live than we are about living well, ourselves.

You see it in youth, young people under the age of 30 or 40 who still live at home, don’t pay taxes, don’t have jobs, don’t create jobs, telling other people that they shouldn’t own guns or that they should pay more in taxes. Jordan Peterson has a great line about this, something along the lines of, if you can’t keep or own damn room clean how do you expect to change the world for the better?

Don’t fuck with someone else’s freedom. If you don’t want to eat animals, I have no right to force that upon you. Just like you can’t force me to eat soy.

The Freedom to Be Offended

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” ― George Orwell

In life we learn more from opposition than we do from agreement. We grow more by seeing things differently than we do by surrounding ourselves by people who think exactly as we do.

We’ve become soft, there’s little argument around this. We’ve become so soft that many among us scream if they hear ideas that differ from their’s.

Grow up.

Finding Freedom Every Week

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” ― Theodore Roosevelt

Finding freedom, the freedom that feeds your soul, that makes you feel alive, takes effort. You have to drive or hop on a plane. You have to hike, climb, and walk for miles. It takes effort to get out there and live free.

Which is precisely why few people do it.

You have to learn new skills. You have to train your body to be able to endure what you’re setting out to do and where you’re setting out to go.

Regardless of the effort it takes, it’s always worth it.

If you want to feel alive, to feel like a man, get off your ass and get out there.

Set the goal of getting out into nature, where you’re not surrounded by humans and buildings, where you’re alone or with a pal or your pup, looking at beauty that will take your breath away while also giving you the feeling as though you’re truly breathing air that men have been breathing for thousands of years. You’re sharing air with grizzly’s and elk, cougars and moose. You’re among the wild, and so, you too are wild.

3 MEN YOU NEED TO STUDY TO AVOID MEDIOCRITY

3 MEN YOU NEED TO STUDY TO AVOID MEDIOCRITY

Mediocrity is a trap easy to fall into.

It’s everywhere around us. We’ve been schooled in it since the day of our birth. And, inevitably so, as the population rises, there are even more mediocre humans attempting mediocre things.

What we aren’t shown is truly daring.

We don’t have examples of impressive audacity.

In our own lives, we can’t even dream about what that would look like.

So we set ‘big goals’, and 10x them, and increase the dollar amount, but we don’t live daring lives.

We don’t live in a way that would lead one to think that we have an understanding that our death is coming, sooner than we’d like to believe.

We live like time is infinite.

I mentioned earlier this year that I’m splitting up my reading into two parts:

  1. Marketing – something I need to get a lot better at.
  2. Greatness – men who’ve accomplished truly great things, both in our present time and in history.

So far, I’ve read about a lot of great men. Few of whom were born into a position of greatness. Even those who were born into power – like Alexander – did more with that power than any of them.

That’s a point that needs to be driven home…

We see some success stories and we search for advantages they had that we don’t. But we ignore that it’s our duty to do the best with what we have. That’s it.

Take Trump. People lambaste him for taking a $1 million loan from his old man. They say, “if I got a loan like that I’d be a billionaire too.” Odds are they wouldn’t. Not even close.

If you make $30k/year you’re in the top 1% in the world. And yet we choose to see ourselves as have nots rather than haves.

Hence, you and I have to study great men. We need to see what true greatness is, and how you don’t need a hand-out to attain it. Here are 3 guys you should study and the book’s to begin with:

Napoleon Bonaparte

Napoleon became the emperor of the country that conquered his homeland. Think about that, first, then think about it in terms of title being everything during his time. The title you were born with was the title you would die with.

Yet, he had no title. Still, he become emperor of the very country that overtook his own. That would be like a Polish man ruling the Soviets during their reign, or an Indian becoming king of England when they ruled India. It’s incredible. The scope of his accomplishments need to be studied.

avoid mediocity by studying the life of napoleon bonaparte

 

James Cook

Cook, too, was born in a time when title and birthright determined what you would do with your life. He was born to a farming family. Yet he ended up becoming a Merchant Marine, gaining command of his own ship (which was a lucrative career back then), only to quit and join the Navy, starting again from the very bottom.

He worked his way up and got command of his own ship there, too. He did what no men did before him, and he did it all in the pursuit of adventure.

John D. Rockefeller

Rockefeller was born poor, dirt poor, but died the richest man in the world. Not only was he born poor, but his old man left his mother for another lady and another family.

He acquired wealth as much through audacity and daring as discipline. In fact, discipline was the main driver behind his insane ability to grow and gain power.

avoid mediocity - life of john rockefeller

Study great men as a means to get into their mind, their way of thinking, setting goals, and dreaming.

Mediocrity is all around you. You do not have to be a part of it.

Books can transport you to another time, another way of viewing the world. They’re a tool. Use books to understand what’s possible.

 

Be Legendary,

Chad Howse

 

The Death of Liberty as We Know It

The Death of Liberty as We Know It

Liberty is the most important right within a society. As soon as you shut someone down because they disagree with you, liberty and freedom die.

[Tweet “Liberty is the most important right within a society. As soon as you shut someone down because they disagree with you, liberty and freedom die.”]

Liberty is the right to think, speak, believe, and defend in whatever manner you want. The government can’t tell you who to be nor how to live. (Read This: Our Quest for Equality is Killing Our Liberty)

These are rights under God, not under the rules and regulations of someone – an entity – that you employ.

And what we’re seeing today are regulations being placed on our words. Most of us just go about our business because it doesn’t really affect us. But it’s these incremental changes that will remove our freedom entirely.

As we are today, both in countries like Canada and the U.S. and in Europe especially, we’re really not free.

Some like it like this so long as they have perceived safety. They’ll gladly believe certain things, think how they’re told, and hand over their guns if someone takes the responsibility for thinking freely and for self-defense away from them. (Read This: You Can Take Safety, I’ll Have Freedom)

That’s what’s wrong with a democracy, most are blind. They don’t want to think so they vote in a way where they don’t have to think. They want you, I, and everyone else to believe what they believe, to think as they think, so they vote in laws that crush individual liberty and freedom.

In Canada, there are governments who are now regulating speech in cities like Toronto. They’ve identified 30 genders (what the fuck!?!) in New York, and if a business owner doesn’t identify someone by the ‘gender’ they want to be identified as, they could be liable.

The freedom of speech is freedom, it’s the foundation of all other rights and liberties, and governments in seemingly ‘free’ societies are beginning to regulate it.

The right to bear arms defends the right to free speech, and when you see places like the UK or Australia ban guns  (with no positive effect to homicides – the U.K.’s homicide rates increased after their ban), the people become easier to control and rights become easier to seize.

California’s senate just voted to excuse themselves from their state’s rigid gun laws. No one wants to not be able to defend themselves or hunt their own food unless they really don’t care about freedom.

And so we have millions of people who don’t want liberty, they could care less about freedom, they don’t want to be able to speak their minds nor defend their families, and our rights are taken because they’re blind cowards.

Regardless of what you believe, be it pro gun or anti-gun, pro free speech or if you get offended when someone says something that’s different from your line of thinking, STAND FOR THEIR LIBERTY AND FREEDOM.

You can believe what you believe and they can believe what they believe, and you’ll find far more common ground than venomous differences.

HOW TO FIGHT YOUR DESIRES TO FIND TRUE FREEDOM

HOW TO FIGHT YOUR DESIRES TO FIND TRUE FREEDOM

Seek freedom and become captive of your desires. Seek discipline and find your liberty. ~ Frank Herbert

Freedom to many is the right to do whatever you want. It’s the right and the ability to follow your latest whim, wish, and your present desire. When you seek this kind of freedom you’re ruled by the wish, whim, and desire. Your urges own you, you don’t own them. (Read This: The Death of Freedom)

Our desires change. They’re frivolous. They seem to have a mind of their own and often come from a weaker part of us that doesn’t take our greater goals and dreams into account.

Our desires pull us away from our potential, when it’s discipline that brings us nearer to it.

It’s popular in our society to seek a kind of freedom that brings us further away from discipline. It’s a freedom from responsibility and work and a freedom to live a life that serves no one but ourselves.

We see this kind of freedom applauded by social groups, self-help authors, and ideologies that see happiness not as something we work to create, but something we gain only apart from the society that we reside within. It’s a freedom filled with sandy beaches and weed, hippie headdresses and odd hours.

The freedom from discipline ends up bringing you a freedom from accomplishment. It brings you to a point of dependence of some kind, which cannot be true freedom. It’s a kind of freedom that ignores the sacrifices of men and women before you that have fought for your right to be an irresponsible dependent.

It’s the freedom of ignorance. It’s a socialist’s freedom. You will still rely on roads and running water, yet you will not do your part to pay for them.

It’s the ignorance of sacrifice, however, that opposes true freedom, which must take into account that life, no matter where you’re born or what you’re born in to, is a gift. It’s a gift that must be repaid, maybe within your community, your country, your society and world, or simply by doing the best you can with what you have and the time you have while you’re here.

This is where discipline becomes the sole ingredient necessary for true freedom.

Without discipline you cannot make the most of the time you’re given. You cannot rise early and work hard. You cannot differentiate between the good and bad desires that come into your thoughts daily.

INSTANT GRATIFICATION

Gratification is a click away. Never before in the history of mankind has gratification been so close at all times of the day. We can book a trip on credit, buy new “stuff” on amazon, heck, we can look at beautiful naked women with the click of a mouse without actually having to put the work in, build a relationship, get to know a lady, maybe even go out on a few dates.

Everything about our western world is instant.

It’s different in other parts of the world, and it was different, better, for thousands of years. When my Mom was a wee one growing up in Italy her family worked on a farm owned by a man who was not family. They farmed and ploughed to earn a wage and to earn the food that they’d put in their mouth.

My Nonno, her Dad, hunted for food and made the kids stomp the grapes for the horrible wine that they’d all “enjoy”. Nothing was instant. Gratification was something you had to save for, work for, and quite often suffer for.

My old man’s old man built his own house. He bought a plot of land, having saved while working 3 jobs, then rather than paying someone to build his house, he did it. Radical, I know. (Read This: The Strongest Human in The World)

Instant gratification is killing our culture. It’s destroying our work ethic and our ability to save, to put something off to the future, and to be persistent.

Each of us has our own battle with instant gratification. It’s one of the things I’m working on this year, a year where I pledged to stay within North America, rather than clicking a link on a web site and finding myself halfway across the world the next week.

When your desire to feel gratification instantly outweighs your discipline you’re a victim to whatever that part of your brain desires. A man cannot be a victim to something that he controls. Heck, he can’t be a victim, period!

This is incredibly important. As society goes closer to making pleasure and gratification instant rather than something we have to work toward, it’s important to have men lead the way back to a way of living that toughens the soul, and that bring the power over one’s life back within their grasp.

On a bigger level, when Bill Clinton felt it was everyone’s right to own a home, he set in motion policies that gave everyone that ability, Bush throwing gasoline on the fire only making things worse. People that could not afford a home borrowed money that they could not come close to paying back. And they did it on a scale that brought a nation to its knees.

Who’s to blame?

I’m not a fan of the policies started by Clinton and fanned by Bush, but it’s the individual’s fault. To say otherwise would be like saying it’s the person who left their door open’s fault for having their house robbed. The sheer scale of people who wanted the instant gratification of home-ownership without actually earning and saving enough to own one negatively affected every other human in the country – and many more all over the world.

On that same scale you have scumbags like Madolf who wanted millions, even billions, without doing the work to get them. You also have the people who invested in his fund when it was clearly a scam to any discerning investor. And why? Because they wanted the quick buck.

Extreme ownership over one’s life dictates that in every circumstance, every failure in your life, you have played a role. The man who owns his failures seeks out the role he plays rather than shifting the blame to another.

As our society on the whole moves toward a desire to have instant gratification, to earn a quick buck, to trick the system, to get what we have not earned, we not only fuck ourselves royally, weakening our resolve and ownership over our lives, but we royally screw the rest of society.

“To have power over your life is to have power over your desires, instant gratification cannot be a practice of a man who’s in control.”

The man who doesn’t depend on consumerism for happiness is free to live a life based on action, purpose, and value. His moods aren’t swayed by the need to own or acquire, but on what he was put here to do.

AFFIRMATION

The desire for affirmation prevents the individual from creating true happiness. It brings control over their life out of their hands, placing it in the individual’s hands they want a pat on the back from.

Affirmation, or the desire for it, has been blown so far out of proportion in today’s society where our self-worth is determined by how many ‘likes’ we get on a picture. We’ve become a culture that does things in order to gain approval and not for the sake or the feeling that the trip, the effort, the action gives us internally.

For a life to be lived with any degree of true accomplishment and satisfaction, the life has to be lived for others but not their approval. A life of service is one of the best lives a man can lead. Life, however, much follow your own path, and when your intentions are swayed by how you think others will react you end up living a life not on the path you’re intended to live, that your soul begs you to embark upon, but on a journey in life following someone else’s wishes, desires, and dreams.

When you embark on a mission, a job, a career, even a relationship, spend time in silence, in nature, and lone thinking about why you’re taking this action.

Steven Pressfield wrote,

“To feel ambition and to act upon it is to embrace the unique calling of our souls. Not to act upon that ambition is to turn our backs on ourselves and on the reason for our existence.”

Ambition takes guts, but it also takes clarity. When your ambitions in life are dependent on what others want for you and from you, you cannot fight for what your soul begs of your to build, create, and earn.

EASE

One of the most powerful desires you must gain control over is the desire for ease. It’s a desire we all want. It’s one that I have to fight daily as I’d rather watch an episode of Last Man Standing on Netflix rather than clean up the mess that Teddy made in the backyard after a long day of work.

Ease, to relax, to avoid the work that must be done cripples men. The desire for ease makes men settle for far less than what they’re capable of accomplishing and doing.

Ease kills potential. Ease makes adventure impossible. And there’s something about adventure, the desire for men to conquer – be it fear, pain, or terrain – that has only ever been in the hands of a select few willing to go further than any have gone before that screams life.

It’s both a lack of control and an acceptance of control. Riding a horse at the base of the Andes when it gets spooked and takes off, you may be able to control the animal eventually, but for a few seconds you’re a victim to the desires of the beast. It’s invigorating, but it’s far from easy.

To get there I had to work for years, building a business, saving, failing, climbing my way up to a point where I was earning something. I also had to train my body to be able to handle an animal that I wasn’t trained to handle.

I’ve taken it easy far too often in my life, and it has brought me nothing but sorrow and the feeling of helplessness.

Avoidance, avoiding the chores around the house or the necessary actions in business, brings poverty and dependence. While accomplishment, even with simple things like doing the dishes, brings a sense of pride that cannot be matched.

In all ways, all things, all aspects of life, the desire for ease will bring you closer to the life you wouldn’t want to lead, a life where you’re trapped, bound to mediocrity, prevented from experiencing the thrills of adventure and that sweet agony of defeat that comes after thousands of hours of hard work.

Grand failure far out-trumps the mediocrity and safety of never venturing beyond your zones of comfort.

Ease brings tragedy. It brings you to a place where you can be no greater than average, a life where you will never experience the highs and lows that consists in what we call “living”.

In every aspect of your life, seek action, seek hardship, seek work and life in its truest sense will be yours. (Read This: The Value in Being Uncomfortable)

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO BE FREE WHEN IT’S SO MUCH HARDER?

Now, the big question…

Why would one want freedom when mediocrity and conformity is so much easier?

We’re all put here with the opportunity to experience life. Life isn’t an assembly line where each individual goes through the same situations in life in the same manner and without much effort.

Life, whether you want to accept it or not, is hard. It’s tough. It’s not easy and it’s not made for those who seek ease, instant gratification, or are constantly after the affirmation of others they have no business following.

Life in its truest sense, the act of living, of feeling as though you’re a part of a connected existence with your Maker, requires that you see life as a gift that’s wasted when you don’t make the most of everything you’ve been given every single fucking day.

When you live as though life is a series of motions you go through where safety is the number one goal you’re relegated to a purgatory that most slide into around the time of adulthood.

If you want more, if you want to experience this thing called life you have to accept that discipline over your desires is the route to true freedom, and the true human experience that eludes the vast majority of us wandering aimlessly on this wonderfully dangerous planet.

The Coward Wants Rules. What We Need Is Freedom.

The Coward Wants Rules. What We Need Is Freedom.

Why Does The Modern Man Wants Less Freedom and More Rules?

I grew up loving freedom. At every opportunity as a wee one I’d run away and chase some adventure. Fear was compass more than it was a deterrent. As I grew up that thirst for freedom only evolved. I was a pain in the ass to teach, whether it was kindergarten or the 12th grade I wanted to be able to make my own choices, accepting the responsibility for what those choices entailed.

When I dropped out of college and joined the workforce I again craved freedom. I didn’t want to answer to someone. I wanted to be my own boss and so I started my own business. At first it was a training business, then a web site. And I failed.

I failed over and over again but I stuck with freedom. If I were to lose it would be the result of my actions. But at least I was failing on my own accord and not under someone else’s direction.

What’s interesting is that I also love to read, yet, throughout high school and college I never read a book. I guess that was more in response to being told what to read rather than not enjoying reading. As soon as I left college, I began to read and read voraciously.

Eventually I bought a house. I’d rather have my own land far away from the city that I grew up in than an apartment that belonged to someone else within it. Again, I chose freedom.

But freedom, today, is a myth.

It’s a myth because for decades we’ve been saying “no” to freedom. We don’t want the responsibility of having to take care of ourselves, to manage our own money, to win or lose on our own merit. We want someone else to take care of that. And so we vote for more entitlements, higher taxes on those willing to work and sacrifice and hustle, and more regulation on those with an idea and the ambition to pursue it.

Because of this desire to have someone else ensure our future many see those who’ve acquired money and monetary success as having somehow cheated. We don’t see that at the bare minimum 40% of billionaires are self-made (some stats show it at 70%), or that most of the rich also provide jobs, or that, who cares?! It’s their money; let them do what they will with it. And so, we vote in people who increase regulation. We inhibit freedom because of a cynical view of the world and the wonderful people living in it.

We don’t want to look at the stats. We don’t want to see that the nations with fewer regulations and more economic freedom have less inequality, both of gender and a lesser pay gap. We just want to make it harder for risk takers to take risks and provide services. We don’t understand that everything we wear, eat, watch, drive, and use in our day-to-day is a service provided to us by, at least at one point, a risk taker.

So we double down on the regulations and grow them making it harder and much more complicated to start a business.

We don’t want freedom; we want protection from the big bad boogieman who’s doing so much harm by providing us with food to eat, clothes to wear, and trucks to drive.

And then we were attacked…

We, the free world, were attacked on 9/11, and our response was to inhibit the freedoms of our own citizens under the guise of the Patriot Act.

I remember my old man telling me stories about his travels when he was in his early to mid twenties. He’d simply hop on a plane and see the world. He’d navigate through borders easily seeing North Africa and the Middle East. He’d venture into Europe with ease and without a passport.

What’s more, is he’d go hunting with his uncles without a gun license. He’d go fishing without worrying about the season or the legalities of fishing in one particular spot or another.

And then there’s the fearful modern man who wants less freedom and more control by a government that thrives and grows and mutates as it gains more control. And so, he doesn’t want a man to be able to defend himself or his family. He wants that man’s safety dependent on an agency (and God bless the men and women who police us and fight our fires) that’s a bare minimum of 20-minutes away from where we reside.

The modern man would rather have a man not be able to defend his home based on the fear that arming him would enable him to hurt this modern weakling in his home. A gun is not needed to harm the modern man; fists or a baseball bat would clearly suffice, or some insensitive comment that sends him running to the ladies room in tears.

He’d rather have gun-free zones where criminals are allowed to hunt the un-harmed. He’d rather have homes gun free so we can be hunted in our habitat, because, as his ignorance reaches new heights, he somehow thinks that criminals obey laws.

To take things further, this bleeding heart, brainless buffoon sees large dogs as dangerous and a threat to society. So he wants to ban them too. He wants to take a man’s best defense and surely a woman’s best defense against an intruder, away. He wants to choose which breeds are okay and which are too dangerous to own.

The modern man wants more rules and less freedom.

He wants to disarm, over-regulate, and over-tax.

But he doesn’t want to help…

Those who want higher taxes pay less tax on every income level. They want your taxes, not theirs. Those who want to disarm you live in places where gun crime is rampant and far higher than in places where guns are legally allowed to be carried. The modern man, the guy who wants your tax dollars and your guns also wants to make it tougher for you to start a business that he’d likely benefit from.

He wants to make it harder for you to thrive. (Read This: 3 Hacks That Help You Thrive)

So why does he want more rules and less freedom?

He’s afraid.

He’s a afraid of having to think for himself. He’s afraid of having to determine what’s a good product and which is a bad one. He’s scared of guns, and oddly enough, the vast majority of good people who own them. He’s scared of failure, but also of hard work. He’d rather not work.

He’s afraid of war, yet he wants to welcome refugees from nations who have vastly different customs than his. Nations who don’t respect women, nor freedom.

He’s also stupid.

He’s stupid because his bleeding heart has left no blood to run his brain.

He sees the 2 out of 10 refugees that are women or children, and not the 8 out of 10 that are able-bodied, angry young men, and he wants to welcome them into his country and give them homes with tax dollars that he doesn’t pay.

But he won’t dare defend them. He won’t dare enlist nor send troops to their homeland so that these innocent men and women can live where they want to live, home. That makes too much sense for him. (Read This: You Know You’re a Pussy If…)

He’s a scared little man, this modern man, what’s sad is that he’s now the majority.

No, he doesn’t pay a majority in taxes. He doesn’t want a big dog nor a gun so no law-abiding citizen should have either. He doesn’t start businesses nor does he create jobs. He doesn’t want responsibility so no one should be burdened with such a thing.

He isn’t self-reliant. He couldn’t live in the country, let alone the woods. He couldn’t form an educated opinion on anything, he merely spits out what’s right and what’s wrong with little logic and no fact. It’s against his beliefs to see the big picture.

He’s weak. He cares more about the clothes he buys than his character. He’ll get a girl pregnant then march her to the abortion clinic. Responsibility is his kryptonite.

He’ll get a girl pregnant then march her to the abortion clinic.

He wants change, but he doesn’t know what he wants change from. He uses phrases like, “I’m offended” and “that’s offensive” and completely shuts down when an opinion that differs from his own is voiced.

This is the modern man.

This cannot be you.

Many a year ago a nation was forged in battle. It was the first free nation where a man’s vote mattered. Where his liberty came first and the whims of the government came second. It was created at a time when the world was ruled by monarchs and the wealth was held by but a few.

And now this modern man is intent on bringing us back to a time when the few ruled. He wants to grow government and increase regulation and inhibit your freedom. (Check This Out: 33 Steps to Freedom)

But this society was built on the backs and with the hands of strong men and it once again needs the cream to rise. The first free, democratic society needs self-reliant men. We need action-takers and risk-takers and defenders of freedom.
