Inspiration

In the American Colonial/Revolutionary era, men did great things. The differences of contemporary man and the Colonial/Revolutionary man is stark. This group seeks to explore the characters of that era to recover the lost lessons of the manliness of our forefathers.

respect for your fellow man is important in day to day dealings in a civilized society. unfortunately for today a lot of it is missing in todays society. thanks for starting this group.

Where has civility gone in modern society? In former eras such as those our founding fathers lived in, there was no lack of contention among people. But even when two men disagreed, they did so respectfully and with courtesy to each other. For example, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were staunch political opponents - and yet maintained a deep friendship in spite of their differences. 

 

The simple fact our modern society completely disregards is this: it doesn't cost anything to be kind.

When can a boy learn to fight back?

Good Evening Gents,I have two young boys. My oldest is the only one in school yet. Today his mother called me in a panic because another boy slapped my son in the face at recess. For whatever reason, my son did not press the issue and bring it up with his teacher, I'll have to ask him about that. But, that got the thought into my head, when IS it ok to tell a young man that if someone lays hands on you, it's acceptable to defend yourself? Obviously, I'm not thinking I should put my…See More
