Dewussifying our culture, one person at a time

I have often said that weakness invites aggression. In nature, the strong eat the weak and the fast eat the slow. Why do people think they are exempt from this cycle of nature?

Strength is still required today for those fighting theContinue reading “The “Dad bod” –an excuse to justify being out of shape”

Basically you haveContinue reading “None of us are as smart as all of us”
