How To Find Your Mission In Life

By Hunter Drew (The Family Alpha)



I’m in the process of joining the Army National Guard with the intention of commissioning as an Infantry Officer.

I have a job which is laid back, had a sweet beard, I coach my son’s baseball team, run this blog, and life couldn’t be better with both my wife and kids.

So Why Join?

Hapa Blogs Suck, and You Suck for Reading Them (A video!)

Why yes, I am of mixed white/Asian ancestry. I usually don't like the whole identity politics bitchfest, so I don't feel it's worth mentioning. However...

Johnny's Guide to Romania: Bucharest and Transylvania for Digital Nomads



By Johnny FD

I flew over Bucharest exactly two years ago having no idea where it was or thinking I would ever end up here, yet here I am on a train leaving Romania after an amazing week of traveling. To be honest, I hated my first day in Bucharest and if it wasn't for the fact that we had already booked and paid for two nights at our hotel we would have left sooner.

Machiavelli's Three Key Concepts


By Quintus Curtius

If a political scientist were asked who might be the most misunderstood writer of political theory, he would probably have the name of Machiavelli high on his list. To his name have been ascribed sinister motivations and calculated duplicity; and unscrupulous cherry-picking of his quotes has fashioned him into an ogre in the popular mind.

On Kagero and Soft Music

In this article today, I wish to introduce you to a band that you have undoubtedly never heard of: Kagero. Hailing from my home state of New Jersey, the “Japanese Gypsy Rock” group combines musical influences of three continents (yes, I know about the Hindu Kush origins of the Roma people) into a sublime album (also titled “Japanese Gypsy Rock”). This album’s songs are highly varied stylistically (in the sense of having different instrumentation, rhythms, and chord structures), but are tied together by a slightly melancholic mood and lyrics about love (both found and lost), the trials and tribulations of being a professional musician, and unrepentant alcoholism. Needless to say, I’m a big fan (word of advice for the approximately zero aspiring musicians that actually care about my opinion of them: rock and roll violins are a quick way to get on my good side, and this band uses them extensively).

Negging is Bullshit


Yeah, it turns out I'm joining the "manosphere beef" club. But rather than complaining about the actions of one particular person, or stereotypes of certain types of commenters on the blog roll, I want to complain about a fairly major tenet of the entire concept of Game. A tenet that upsets me because this little corner of the realm of philosophy has otherwise made such great strides in becoming sensible and realistic.

A Final Debunking Overview

At long last, it's at an end. More varied posts will come in the future.

Chapter 6: "Dad, I am homosex"

Hooray for referencing old internet image macros. Anyway, I wanted to talk a little bit about this, because those of alternate lifestyles are currently the cause of choice for the progressive global machine valiant underdogs (ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER). But I don't think I really have enough to write a full chapter.

A Debunking Overview of Cultural Marxist Talking Points: Part 5

Chapter 5: Your ideas about modern society are wrong part 2-the sexuality shuffle

Excuse the attempt at levity. This chapter will deal with sexual issues in the Western world, both hetero and homo, and everything in between.

A Debunking of Cultural Marxist Talking Points 4

Patience, this series will end soon enough, and then I'll get to more varied writing.

Chapter 4: Your Ideas About Modern Society Are Wrong

In the last chapter I discussed (and provided sources for) examples of history being used to guilt-trip, and it kind of bled into discussions of modern European society. I only did so because most of the people who have criticized American history and culture (in my experience, anyway) are in fact Europeans, and the last bit of chapter 3 was to illustrate how incorrect this was, and illustrate how progressive writers and politicos in Europe will disparage their own nations and cultures similarly to those in America.  In this chapter, I will attack how the assumptions progressives have towards MODERN society are also wrong, and how some people profit from propagating these views

Ancient Treatment For Depression And Melancholia


By Quintus Curtius

What did the ancients think about depression, and how to cure it?  We will look at the views of Celsus, who wrote the most complete medical guide that has survived from Roman times (excluding the writings of Galen).

Debunking Cultural Marxist Talking Points Part 3

Chapter 3: Western Civilization And History-The Sledgehammer of Guilt

Be warned, this is going to be a long one.
If there is one thing that progressives love attacking more than the "outmoded" beliefs of human nature, it is "evil, arrogant" Western society, especially that of the United States of America. After all, it fits so well with their noble savage ideologies, does it not? The sins of the white devils are totally unique to human history, and they don't even feel any guilt for it!!1

Broke? Here's How to Start Making Money Online!





By Johnny FD

If you're broke and want to start making money online, it's a challenge and seems like the world is completely against you. Most things you find either don't work or cost thousands of dollars to start which you most likely don't have. You may end up finding an affordable alternative just to find out how many hidden costs there are once you get started. The reason why I know better than most people how much it sucks to be broke and the need to make money online is because I was in that exact situation just a few years ago when I was on a budget and bootstrapping.

Debunking Cultural Marxist Talking Points: Part 2

Chapter 2: Anthropology: Humanity in its splendor

From what I can see, the root of the problem with anthropology is not Mr. Franz Boas, although he certainly deserves some malice. It goes back to France's own Jean-Jacques Rousseau-he of the noble savage and the blank slate. From him most of modern leftism is derived. I will not delay any further:

A Debunking of Cultural Marxist Talking Points

or: WHY I STOPPED BEING A PROGRESSIVE: A RAMBLING CRAPFEST BY LARSEN HALLECK

Chapter 1: My background

If you've read the About Page, and the Introduction post (and really, why wouldn't you?), you'll know my name is Larsen Halleck, a graduate student studying in California, and born and raised in New Jersey.

As you might have assumed, this philosophical treatise (I'll avoid calling it a manifesto because I'd rather not be put on a government watchlist) will essentially explain my own personal reasons for why I abandoned modern leftism/modern progressivism/the "New Left", or whatever you would call it (I will explain later what I mean by "modern leftism").

I Don't Know


By Quintus Curtius
It is a cliche that knowledge is power.  But sometimes, not knowing something is also power.  There is power in saying “I Don’t Know.” Let me explain what I mean.

Johnny's Guide To Sofia, Bulgaria For Digital Nomads


By Johnny FD

I never thought I would have ended up in Bulgaria but here I am. I've heard more than a few people talk about how Sofia is a potential place for digital nomads as it's cheap, has fast internet and is outside of the Schengen area which makes it one of the best choices to be able to stay in anywhere Europe for the entire year without needing to get a special visa, which i'll explain more in this post.

Every Man Needs His Quest


By Quintus Curtius

I have a lot of familiarity with the old mythologies.  I love the old stories of the classical Greek and Roman myths.  Even the old Norse mythology has its place, although it is so much darker.  Darker, and more ominous.

What Are Your Values In Life?


Values are principles, themes, ideas, concepts that give life meaning and purpose. They represent what is important to you, what your boundaries are, and how you will live your life. Having a solid, clear set of values is like having a constitution, the way that a country has its constitution. Your values encapsulate what you, as a person, stand for. If you don't stand for anything, then really, who are you? What are you?

The Importance Of Character And Kindness In Women


Contrary to what you might have heard, girls aren’t always sugar and spice and all things nice. When you see a pretty face, it’s the most natural thing to assume that its owner is a nice person. We associate a nice exterior with a nice interior, because otherwise it wouldn’t make sense, right? That’s called the Halo effect. And you have to snap yourself out of it.
