Hi, my name's Jarrod and I'm 30 years old, living in Melbourne, Australia.  It has been a fairly slow, and winding path here.  I started reading Marcus Aurelius and then moved on to other philosophers in my Philosophy unit.  The more I've read, the more interested I've become in understanding what it is to be a man in this time.  Unfortunately, turning to any local media/publications in Australia is largely pointless for this endeavour and after being increasingly disillusioned, I've was very happy to find this website.  The anger, vitriol and blaming that seems to surround many other discussions any time anyone wants to raise the topic of men's interests are pleasantly absent here.

I hope I can contribute meaningfully during my time here, and look forward to participating.

"Obama is not saying we should not have dropped it. He is saying that we can sympathize for those innocents who died in its use, and use the lessons we learned in that war and those decisions, going forward. FWIW - among those who did have to…"

"To quote Truman, “That bomb caused the Japanese to surrender, and it stopped the war. I don’t care what the crybabies say now, because they didn’t have to make the decision.”  Anybody who doesn't like what we…"

"Vendetta, I'm not playing into anything. I posted that here because Shapiro is more eloquent than me. Obama is a globalist and obviously thinks that nuking two of their cities was worse than a full scale, bloody invasion, and that America is…"

"PH, that is such a BS opinion piece.  I can say with 100% certainty that there is nothing that obama could have said to get a positive article out of the author.  Its BS, don't play into it, you are smarter than that."
