The Philosophy of Commonsense : A Cultural War Primer
Abstract: A presentation of an assertion that common-sense exists because first principles, natural moral law, and universal truths exist. Common-sense has served as a guide and a protection from ill-considered ideas and inflamed passions throughout history. It can guide us now through our current cultural war.
Through an examination of the Strauss-Howe generational theory and the outcomes of past periods of history similar to our own era this book contends that common-sense and the lessons our ancestors can teach us will be key in the solutions our children someday craft to resolve current issues.
This book is important for parents (Generation X) to remind us of the knowledge we received from our parents and grandparents that we should pass along to our children. It is important for our children (Generation Z “Zoomers”) to help them understand that truth does exist and not everything from the past should be discarded willy-nilly.
Our children will have to be the ones to fix the mistakes of the three generations before them – we must equip them.

A Practical guide for any young person considering a military career that analyzes the traditional career path and provides proven alternatives that lead to success, options and most importantly maintenance of the individual and freedom of action.
This book is for young folks that are considering a military career the knowledge that there are alternative paths to reaching retirement. The traditional path is fraught with risk, a person simply must hit all the marks and timelines in order to reach retirement. Obviously, based upon historical numbers a person has between a 60 and 70 percent chance of success assuming you stay out of trouble and do your job well. But there are outliers. During the last reduction in force, I observed otherwise quality folks shown the door before retirement.
Beyond that, the traditional path requires a person to become a careerist. On that road, you simply must look out for your own career. This sometimes entails ingratiating yourself to people you do not like or respect. It might mean a loss of dignity. It means stress and it often places you at the mercy of luck and hope.
The plan presented in this book frees a person from almost all of that. One can craft a career that avoids the stress of “up or out” and still retire with 20 years of service, with a nice pension, and many opportunities to either work or pursue other options.
