The Consequences of a War Against Men

We’ve all seen the memes, marches, protests, and videos. The theme is that men are terrible. The patriarchy must fall. Feminism is the solution. Who needs men? The future is female. Men must pay! Ban men. Men are simps. Women rule! Etc. There seems to be a war against men being waged. However, that may […]

Thought Leadership Lost in a Sea of Repetition

Lately, I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone! In a week spent on social media (especially LinkedIn), one can’t help but notice a multitude of self-proclaimed “thought leaders” echoing identical sentiments. This phenomenon begs the question: how can supposedly original thinkers share the exact same ideas all the time? The truth lies in plain […]

The Erosion of Foundational Values is the Threat

At the core of every society lie foundational values: the bedrock principles, beliefs, and norms that define its identity and guide the behavior of its members.

Society Lies And Confuses

It’s common for us to be influenced by societal norms and expectations. We often allow others to determine what is considered “cool” or acceptable, forgetting that everyone has unique preferences. Unfortunately, this can result in a lack of individuality and even judgment toward those who don’t fit the mold. I think it’s time to challenge […]

Embracing Knowledge and Technology for Liberty

Friends, it seems to me that we are at an interesting crossroads in history. However, many don’t know or appreciate where we came from, and most have no idea where we should be heading.
