"The new podcast is worth listening to.
It alludes to a lot of what the site owner has been talking about, and is offering here, but at a price: you have to create your own mens' circle, one that will challenge you and in those challenges bond…"
"Very well said. From what I read in the Year End article, it seems like Brett intends to put more of a focus into Strenuous Life. I can't imagine AoM wouldn't take a hit of some kind. Like you, I scoff at nearly all paid…"
"If nothing else this has been one hell of a marketing test. All the applicants for the beta test all of us talking about it and yet we still don't know what this program really is.
$30 a month is not too outrageous for something with real…"
"I was accepted for the beta test. Not much risk. If it's not worth the money ... then I'll pay for the month or two it takes to figure that out, and move on with my life.
I can risk a few bucks on a roll of the dice. Anyway, I've…"
"Another "reject" here. :)The price seemed a bit high to me as well, but I'm comparing it with the costs of Scouting for my boys. Membership for BSA is only $24. But then you add merit badge books, uniforms, patches,…"
"Thanks for the well thought out response. I have been on the same track as you, doing things my own way when I can. I wish I could seek out a local community of men. Sadly, at this point in my life, I can't. If we had 26 hour days and 8 days a…"
"I am also one of the many that didn't make the beta test cut. Not very surprised, as he was flooded with applicants.
I'm certain it will be a good program. I'm certain the curriculum will be well done.…"
"Agree. Ludicrous seems to be the going rate these days. Nerd Fitness also launched a monthly subscriber group that is in the same price range ($40/pm). I live in Australia, and the $30 US converts to $40 Australian. $40 USD is $53 AUD! Too high.
"His history is extremely one sided. He completely ignores the fact that 4.5 slave states remained in the Union, 4.5 left the Union only after the attack on Fort Sumter, the same economic warfare England had used on the American colonies the North…"
"I think the thing about when neo-confederates pull out the "ordinary soldier didn't fight for slavery" argument is that few, if any, ever cite actual soldiers' words in support of this argument. Surely there are CSA soldier…"
"You could be right. We just don't know what these folks were told when they were being recruited. Some may have been told, yes, this war is about slavery, but it's also about...Personally I think all this, is good for our country.…"
"Even if a monument "commemorates those that gave their lives", it is commemorating those that gave their lives in the service of a political regime whose primary goal was enslavement of blacks, regardless of how those individual soldiers…"
"I think the fact that he's taking his cues from those that are fighting, is a good sign. The timing, might be to distract from all of this. Trump needs a win with those of us that are just trying to figure out what the hell he's doing, and…"
