Real Men Don’t Follow Orders

Dear Aspiring Badass Soldier,

Working hard to get physically strong, while remaining intellectually, philosophically and morally weak, will just end up making you the politicians’ bitch. Unless you fully own yourself, then all your training will accomplish is to build up someone else’s mindless attack dog. They will then use you, destroy you, and discard you. If your goal is to look buff and ripped, while bleeding out in some ditch on the other side of the world, then by all means, “be all you can be.” But if your goal is to actually be a force for truth and justice, then don’t sell your soul to political masters.

Real men don’t follow orders.
