" Trust me, my young manhood was far from ideal. It was only in my mid-30s that I emerged from a tough divorce and, thanks in large part to a great woman who became my wife, began turning things around. Had I stayed single it would've been…"
" I have not yet read Brett's posting, but I can tell you that age should not be a true roadblock for achieving anything in life. I'm in my late 50s and yes, there are certain things I can no longer do, things I used to be…"
" As I see it, the main problem in this country is that we have a serious lack of inspired leadership. A leader is not going to be afraid to say, "We need an attitude adjustment about certain things," but that's exactly what…"
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
" I've read one or two of these and have more on my shelves. I was disappointed the list didn't include Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield, his novelization of the Battle of Thermopylae. Pressfield's latest is The Lion's…"
Schrader has a long list of sources, too, both ancient and modern.
I am skeptical about modern cultural views that homosexuality was widely accepted in the ancient world because that is a handy…"
" Homosexuality was not nearly as common or as socially acceptable in ancient Greece, especially Sparta, as we have been led to believe. See the works of Helena P. Schrader. www.spartareconsidered.blogspot.com."

" Maybe where you live. Welcome to California. Where the state bike equipment laws are rarely, if ever, enforced. The rules have been in the Vehicle Code since before World War I, but you'd never know it from the number of…"
"What the shit is she babbling on about? Honestly, I can understand throwing a sacrificial lamb up if Perry was running again, but an open election with no incumbent and this is the best the Dems have?"
""this is how I see relationships- Both men and women need to contribute, it can not be only one person."
I don't think anyone would disagree with that statement.
But The Red Pill doesn't appear to be a resource center to…"
"I think the ironic thing is that at the end of the day physicality and power held sway, rather than compassion and understanding. It made me realise that like any organisation it was only as good as it's leaders, as people are look up to…"
