Description

This episode of the eRochefoucauld podcast discusses a topic that is rarely, if ever, explored from a philosophical or academic perspective – military cadences. Inspired by both a Habermasian view of communication and public spheres of discourse and the general antipathy often found in military discourses, Evan goes deep into what cadences are and why they are important, from the ground up. A cadence, after all, is a song, born of struggle, necessity, and aimed at making the best of the circumstances. If you didn’t know anything about cadences (other than Hollywood) before this episode, you will soon have an appreciation and understanding, not only for the military cadence, but for the transformative value of music to the human spirit.

An Epic of Masculinity
When good men sit down, bad men stand up. When masculine virtues are ignored, masculine vices reign. When kings are told to go away, tyrants take their place. This is not just a description, but a strategy.This results in a world where a plurality of masculine figures without virtue are in leadership positions in governments, companies, and organizations. This structure is incentivized to forward and repeat the societal talking points whereby masculinity is defined as toxic. This narrative helps prevent good men from rising up.The toxic masculine narrative is the norm, of both history and today.I'm going to crush this status quo, by uplifting masculine idealism.It is a simple formula. Competence + Ethics. This is the masculine ideal.We are a species that doesn’t do well with nuance. We see so many bad men in the world and in the news, and we drift towards simple answers: men are bad. With this we forget that our last and best hope against tyranny is the development of masculine ideals and virtues.It is for this reason that stories about the positive masculine (and omens about the negative masculine) have survived and thrived for thousands of years.I’m going to crush the historic and modern status quo that defines all men as toxic, not by offering my critique of their position, but by offering the alternative. The alternative are these stories and lessons from history, philosophy, and idea. These stories have one purpose: uplift the positive masculine, and teach masculine ideals.
