THE SHOTGUN FOR HOME DEFENSE

            It occurred to me then that I’ve never addressed the home-defense shotgun here on the blog so here we are addressing that oversight. We’ll call this one: THE HOME DEFENSE PUMP SHOTGUN or something equally SEO grabbing. I’m not going to do a lot of compare and contrast in this short essay.

Jürgen Conings Died Alone.

Someone needs to tell fat rednecks who love their black rifles (or much cheaper AK knockoffs) that if they are sincere about carrying a weapon in the militia, they have an obligation to be proficient and fit and trained in insurgent warfare.

Like Jürgen Conings.

Like Chris Dorner.

If you’re not training and not educating yourself effectively, that is the way you are headed. When Z-Day comes, you’re going to be in a mass of faces that have studied Evola and Robert Greene and Sun Tzu and Machiavelli and you are going to wish someone had read FM 3-06.

CICERO AT THE RANGE

In all things a man must understand what he can control and what he cannot. He should demand excellence from himself, but always understand the Universe has plans of its own which do not concern us.

THE LESSON OF FREYA

Love and War share this in common:
If you do not risk everything,
You will certainly be destroyed anyway.

CHAPTER ONE: STRATEGY AND TACTICS

Everyone talks about Strategy and Tactics, but so few know the difference. If you’re going to discuss and practice martial arts, you have know the difference between strategy, tactics, and technique.

PAIN AND SUFFERING

Sometimes I grimace when I stand after sitting too long. When I slide under the bar to do squats, my left shoulder screams in agony. The pain is even worse when I rack the bar and try to lower my shoulder.

Suffering occurs when one commits energy and emotion to their resentment of pain. Suffering occurs when you become invested in a world that doesn’t exist where you don’t have pain. Pain can be alleviated by a nice epsom salt bath, some fentanyl, or a trip to Florida to kiss a girl you’re missing.

KNOW THYSELF…AND THEN BE WHAT YOU KNOW

Seek an answer that embraces the reality of who are are, where we have been and what we have seen and understands that we can change, but we can never be anything other than what we are.

PERCEPTION AND THE ACCEPTANCE OF REALITY

The great flourishing of Stoicism occurred in the days of a very martial Rome, and many of these practices and disciplines are easily applicable to war whether this was the intent of the philosophers or not.
