Christianity and the traditional family are the two things that stand in the way of a complete victory for progressivism. Thus, progressives are doing everything in their power to stamp out or subvert both institutions. I recently saw a meme on Twitter that provides a good example of how our progressive elites are subverting Christianity to help it advance their agenda. [Read more…] about Subverting Christianity
If you pick up any fitness magazine like Men’s Health or Muscle & Fitness, you are used to reading the following advice:
If you want to look good and add muscle, lift weights.
If you want to lose weight and benefit your heart, do long, steady-state cardio.
The vast majority of people at the gym are slavishly obedient to this advice. If you visit the gym after work, you’ll have to wait to get on an elliptical machine or a treadmill. But it is unlikely that you will have too much problem getting a set of dumbbells in the free weight section.
P.D. Mangan thoroughly debunks this “cardio is best for weight loss” advice in his book Muscle Up. [Read more…] about What Is The Best Type of Exercise? A Review of P.D. Mangan’s Muscle Up
I started Honor and Daring one year ago in response to the rapid decline of Western society and the storm that is coming our way as a result of that decline.
At the time, I wasn’t very explicit about my reasons for writing. I feel the time has come to speak more plainly about the purpose of this site. [Read more…] about The Coming Storm
Regular readers know that I am a big advocate of learning martial arts. You never know when you will find yourself in a life or death confrontation. But unarmed fighting skills will take you only so far. That’s why I believe that every man should carry a tactical knife with him at all times, and there is no better knife for this job than the Kershaw Tanto.

You have probably seen the 1999 movie, “The Matrix.” The movie is pretty campy but it is still an excellent metaphor for modern life. In fact, it is truer now than when the movie was released.
The Matrix is about, ‘Neo,’ a middle class computer programmer/hacker who is living the standard life as an office worker. Through his computer hacking, he is gradually introduced to the concept known as the Matrix.
He meets up with a group of odd people whose leader is a man named ‘Morpheus.’ Morpheus gives Neo the choice of whether he wants to go back to his mundane life by taking a blue pill, or learning the full truth of reality by taking a red pill.
Neo swallows the red pill and he learns that the mundane world that he lived in was a false front that concealed the fact that humanity was being used by an alien race.
There are strong parallels to our modern world. Unfortunately, there is no red pill that will give us instant enlightenment, but there are tangible things you can do to “take the red pill.” In this post, I will give ten steps to unplug from the Matrix.

This past weekend my parents paid us a visit. We drove to a suburban strip mall to have dinner at a chain restaurant that my mom is fond of. After dinner, we took a short walk through the strip mall. Most of the stores were already closed, but one business was still open—a martial arts school.
We stopped to watch the training. My son is two and a half and he is starting to become interested in punching and kicking. We wanted to see if he would have any interest in the martial arts class. Unfortunately, what we saw was absolutely pathetic.
