I am at one the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to and not because of the setting. True love and unity is something to behold. 😭

For years I've wanted to move out of the city and start a small farm.
I've been obsessed with Homestead Rescue, I've read a bunch of books, and began doing backyard projects.
Now, the Liminal Order is doing a full on homestead rescue of our own in Michigan in Sept.
gonna be 🔥
We believe in the power of brotherhood, service, and sovereignty. Many of us are already homesteaders, many more of us want to learn.
so we're getting together to build fences, goat sheds, and other productive elements of a working farm for one of our guys.
I'm very excited!

Are people ready to talk about how “grooming” isn’t making more people be actively homosexual but rather politically queer?
According to @epkaufm the data shows that there’s little change in homosexual behavior across home schoolers, parochial, and public school students.
But politically, yea, CRT influencers queer political identity.

People who identify as very liberal and LGTBQ are far more sadder and depressed than the rest of us.
Is queer liberalism making them mentally ill or does it just attract the crazies?
Queer liberalism, which is now the dominant strain, encourages identity transgression which in turn leads to increased anxiety and depression because guess what - identity structures give order and order is comforting.

After driving 2400 miles in ten days I realized all the world’s problems would be solved if slow traffic would move to the right lane.
People cruising slow in the left lane is a legit safety hazard. It causes the speedy guys to change lanes far more than they need.
I see the guy in the left lane with trucks in the middle +right lane + 200 yards of traffic behind him and think, don't you know you're the problem!

What is the Liminal Order?
It’s a fraternal organization of men with shared values who work to educate themselves, support each other, & build communities that support the American project.
We believe that positive change begins with ourselves & our families.
What do we DO?👇🏻
In the LO we study:
- online business
- farming and homesteading
- 4G War
- Sun Tzu
- sense making
Some are formal courses, others informal, all led by experts who are LO brothers.

Progressives and the ignorant can claim that America is an idea or that it wasn’t founded and built by Christians but if you read the Founders, and in this case their children, and understand them the way they intended to be understood - the truth is obvious.
John Quincy Adams:
What’s interesting here is JQA’s caveat that “nearly all” believed the gospels.
He makes space for a small percentage of non believers in Christian morality in the same way Washington did in his farewell address as referenced by the “minds of a peculiar structure.”

Lots of people have distanced themselves from me after the porncident.
If it is because I offended your deep sense of morality, then I salute your standards.
If it is because you’re afraid of blowback from the haters…then…I dunno.
Real friends revealed themselves for sure.
My entire social media life has been about transformation and evolution. Heck, my book is called Democrat to Deplorable.
I’ve never claimed to be enlightened or perfect.
I’m just a guy on a journey.
Change means friction.
It’s just part of the game.

And with respect to my own public exploration of Christianity that declared last year by saying it’s official I’m Bible curious- that has run its course for now with no epiphany. I read a lot of the Bible. I prayed every day did months. I prayed for the epiphany which hasn’t come
And I genuinely wanted it to come. The process began in earnest after my @ClaremontInst fellowship. I saw an America that based on its founding required a Christian people to make it work and those Christian people had a system they lived which answered all of life’s mysteries.

Now that a major piece of the culture war has been won in Roe, it will be interesting to see what happens to the dynamics of the wide tent trump era anti woke America first unity party that emerged in 2016.
What new Edge cases will become the focus? What will emerge and gain coherence among this same deplorable crowd which will keep it together?
If gay marriage becomes the focus of attack I think I see the coalition weakening.
What could emerge that would hold it together ?

I’m legit baffled at prochoice people who can’t even admit, yeah I can see why people are anti abortion.
At least speak about abortions in hushed tones with a grim demeanor and an air of shame about it.
I’ve had a change of heart on abortion. When I was younger I was prochoice. But then I had kids and learned more and for me, being anti abortion is really about the child. The argument of it being about controlling women just doesn’t land with me. I mean, it’s a human life!

The LO is pretty cool.
We’ve got courses relevant today’s issues, using the lens of our values as a way to engage with material.
We’ve got live recreational events.
And we’re building peoples’ Dreams. Literally. We are building farm structures for a Brother’shomestead.
When men work and create something of value for a community member it builds bonds and brings a great vibe.
One of our guys just took over his in laws farm. They are sick and need help. It needs work.
So the LO is coming to build them what they need.
We are gonna build.

Fascinating conversation w/ @epkaufm today. One thing that came up which intrigued me:
He believes the data shows that LGBTQ is now more of a political identification rather than a sexual one.
There's a disconnect between gay identity +gay behavior.
Implications are important:
If the rise in LGBTQ identification is distinct from sexual behavior then the right's worry about LGBTQ as a family disrupter may be overblown.
It may also mean that the "Grooming" effect is less that others have implicated.
It matters bc it matters where we put our attention.

@drcateshanahan wrote Deep Nutrition, The Fat Burn Fix, and is working with Zero Acre to replace industrial seed oils in our diets.
But in the end, all those new foods kicked off an obesity epidemic that lead to a million dead people last year from a virus and millions and millions more dead from metabolic health.

One fascinating part of our talk was about how through the feedback cycle of environment, nutrition, and epigenetics, we humans are evolving into different nutrition based races for lack of a better word.
