DO NOT FEED THE BABOON – EMOTION UNDER DURESS

In recent threads I was astounded at the emotional responses by grown men who would cast away all to respond in a reckless manner to something presented. And yes, I think that they would do exactly as they wrote they would.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Right now I am dealing with one such jerk on FaceBook which is infested with them.

I call them “Cyber Cowards” because they say things via the internet that they would never say to a man’s face for fear of having their fucking teeth knocked down their throat.

This is a short article packed with good advise. Enjoy. — jtl, 419

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits by Gabe Suarez via Suarez International

We live in a curious time. While the west has been at war for nearly two decades, most men still live in comfortable homes with few things lacking. And fewer have seen hardship…the sort of hardship that changes one’s world view. And so they move through their lives inhabiting grown men’s bodies, but with the emotions and mental toughness of kids. Toughness is something one builds and develops, not something one is given at birth. And toughness builds an emotional maturity that allows a man to control his emotions. We all have breaking points, but the breaking point if a tough man is farther down the road.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteHemingway was once asked in a long ago magazine article to describe toughness or “guts”. He said it was grace under pressure.
Kipling wrote about it as well (and it is a sad and unfortunate thing that so few will have ever read either of these men)

“If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you. If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you”

In recent threads I was astounded at the emotional responses by Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian Viewgrown men who would cast away all to respond in a reckless manner to something presented. And yes, I think that they would do exactly as they wrote they would. I will add one very important attribute to the Gentleman Gunfighter (if you are not a gentleman and do not wish that status…please don’t bother reading as i have nothing of value for you at all). That attribute is the term “Grace Under Pressure”. It refers to coolness (a term Cooper preferred), emotional control, and analytical thought driving actions rather than emotions commanding your reactions. It can be done.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  We have seen it done at a military funeral as a Master Sergeant calls out the name of the fallen brother at the last roll call with poise and self control while every fiber of his being is seething with rage and anger.

We have seen it done in a fight as the good guy winner looms over the fallen attacker in readiness but withholds the final blow as unnecessary.
We have seen it done in the face of the driver in a high speed pursuit driving on the very edge of death.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualWe have seen it in the muted smile of the officer waiting outside for the exit of men who will assuredly do their best to kill him.

A brute has no emotional control and at any provocation jumps about like a baboon whose banana was taken away. America is becoming a nation of uncontrolled, immature, brutes who have no self-control, and driven by fear that their banana will be taken. Don’t be a brute. Brutes cannot do anything but mirror the baboon. Do not feed your inner baboon.

Instead, decide today that you are not that brute, but rather a gentleman…albeit a deadly and dangerous one, but a gentleman nevertheless. A renaissance warrior who is educated and embodies the words in Kipling’s poem.

And in the context of fighting, a man such as that will not only perform better and make better decisions under pressure, but will be listened to when he tells his story. Decide today who you want to be. America has plenty of baboons…be the gentleman warrior instead.

 

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)The Essence of Liberty Volume III: Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic. This is the volume that pulls it all together. With reference  to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

    I AM A LADY OF 65 YEARS NOW, NO I DO NOT HAVE ANY CHILDREN, MOST OF US DO, THEN THERE ARE SOME OF US WHO DO NOT. MY MESSAGE IS TO IGNORANT AND STUPID WOMEN, WHO THINK THEY CAN DO EVERYTHING WITHOUT A MAN, TO GIVE AN HONEST ANSWER THEY CAN NOT. A HUSBAND AND A FATHER IS CRUCIAL, VITAL, AND MANDATORY IN A CHILD’S LIFE, ESPECIALLY WHERE THERE IS A MALE OFF SPRING. IT TAKES A MAN TO TEACH A BOY TO BECOME A MAN, IN AT LEAST 98% OF THE CASES, A MAN AND A FATHER IS NEEDED. AS WOMEN WE ALSO NEED MEN TO BE MEN, AND ALLOW MEN TO BE MEN, AND NOT LIKE US, WE DO NOT MARRY OURSELVES, WE MARRY MEN. AS OUR HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH DESIGNED US TO BE, IS TO COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER, WHILE CONTRIBUTING TO EACH OTHER’S GOALS AND TALENTS. AT THE SAME TIME HUMANITY MUST KNOW AND ACCEPT, IT IS NOT WHAT A MAN WANTS US TO DO, OR IT IS NOT US AS WOMEN WANT THE MAN TO DO WHAT WE WANT HIM TO DO, IT IS WHAT OUR HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH WANTS US TO DO. WE SHOULD AS A SOCIETY COMPRISED OF MEN AND WOMEN ALLOW EACH OTHER TO FULFILL THE MAXIMUM POTENTIAL IN WHATEVER OUR TALENTS ARE, WITHOUT EVIL OR CORRUPTION. A MAN SHOULD SAY TO HIS WIFE, HONEY I WANT YOU TO SHINE AND BE THE BEST IN WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE, AND LIKEWISE A WIFE SAY TO HER HUSBAND. INSTEAD OF COMPETING FOR TALENTS, SKILLS, AND EDUCATION, THEY SHOULD BE SHARED AND USED TO BENEFIT ONE ANOTHER. FOR EXAMPLE: A WOMAN MAY WANT TO SAY TO HER HUSBAND, I WANT TO BE A DAIRY FARMER. THE RESPONSE OF THE HUSBAND SHOULD BE HONEY, I AM SURE THE COWS AND GOATS ARE GOING TO APPRECIATE YOU, AND BE GLAD THEY HAVE YOU AS A FARMER. ANOTHER EXAMPLE: A WOMAN SAYING TO HER HUSBAND, HONEY I SAW YOU CHANGE THAT DIAPER AND OUR CHILD JUST LOVES THE FEEL OF YOUR HANDS. NO WE SHALL NEVER GET RID OF EACH OTHER, UNLESS WE ALL DIE.

  3. Almost sounds like the man who wrote this article was talking about that political thug, John Brennan after he had “lost his banana” (his political cover when Hillary lost the election).

      THE REAL PROBLEM WITH JOHN BRENNAN, IS NOT ABOUT HILLARY; ALTHOUGH, YOU CAN SAY THEY ARE WORKING WITH EACH OTHER TO GRAIN US DOWN LIKE SAND, THE REAL PROBLEM WITH JOHN BRENNAN IS THAT HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM. MANY OF THEM DID IN GOVERNMENT AND THE MILITARY, AND THAT IS WHY A MUSLIM CAN NOW LEGALLY GET AWAY WITH MURDER.
