Are you truly free?
We don’t think about this much in today’s society because we think we are. (grow a better beard)
Throughout our history this is essentially what brave men fought for. We fought to be free from the tyranny of another nation or king, from the unsafety of dangerous wild animals and other tribes, and free to live as daringly as our imaginations would allow.
We think we have that, today, but we don’t, not close.
We have debt that traps our minds, spirits, souls.
We’re confined by our fat and weak physiques that keep us from living daring and audacious lives.
We’re trapped by a desire for safety that prevents life from happening all together.
You may not know it or feel it consciously, but men need true, unbridled freedom.
This isn’t freedom from responsibility, but freedom to take on more responsibility and to be able to deal with it as we see fit.
There’s no solution presented in this newsletter, just a question…
Are you free?
Where are you lacking freedom?
What can you do to get freedom financially, physically, spiritually, and so on?
A free man is a dangerous man because a free man thinks for himself, he’s not led by emotion, controlled by uncertainty, he isn’t fragile to fluctuations in the market or in his own personal circumstance.
Training shouldn’t be confined to the physical.
We should be dangerous physically, spiritually, financially. No one should be able to control us.
“A soft, easy life is not worth living, if it impairs the fibre of brain and heart and muscle. We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage… For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
Be dangerous. Be free.
