Why? Are we not American Vanguard?
We actually aren't.
Always make that mistake
If you want a union flag bring peacetime flag imo
Its simultaneously more aesthetic and meshes with our statement better than the current union flag
Ive never liked that flag.
I've never even seen that flag
Is it cause we're never at peace

Who is pushing the word "aesthetic"? To me, it reaks of being a Jewish/materialist/academic word used to sell you something and to obsess over the cosmetic/optics/reputation rather than the discipline/sacrifice/selflessness of our just cause. Officers fresh from the academy are more interested in polishing their shoes than fighting the enemy.
I take your point. But the truth is that aesthetics (an ancient philosophical concept seen in Greco-Roman culture) is important.
Look a the third reich. Aesthetic as fuck.
Greeks and Romans were all conquered the same way.
Yes, the Germans collected very pretty things. Seems like a distraction.
Well when we have a 1,000 year empire we'll be better positioned to criticize them. I think you may be misunderstanind my point. "aesthetics" has a synergistic relationship with the values you mentioned. Discipline etc
What matters to life is the mud-covered boys and flour-covered girls learning to be disciplined men and women so they don't need to import cheap savage labor.
Making your bed. Combing your hair. Hitting the gym. Its not vanity, its practical
I fundamentally agree with you, but yea Im On my way to the gym now lol
For strength, I hope. Not sculpture.
We dont usually get one without the other my dude 😎
Special Forces would disagree.
Power lifters and world's strongest men definitely don't look like statues.
Well I've worked with plenty of them and they dont look like strongman competitors. Lots of rucking etc not much utility for that. Sort of moot for our purposes though. We all could benefit from more fitness overall
Someone's wrong on the internet, dude. Go lift.
Hah. Later bro
@FairUse WA what's wrong with aesthetics? People aren't going to want to follow an ideology where everybody looks ugly and unprofessional. Just look at the progress NSM made (none) compared to the alt-right
First things first. We've already lost a war on both sides by putting appearance ahead of strength, victory ahead of truth, pride ahead of wisdom, assumptions ahead of knowledge, reactions ahead of actions. You need appearance, victory, pride, assumptions, and reactions, but it's a perfect recipe for failure to put them ahead of the bedrock of strength, truth, wisdom, knowledge, and action. In the end, looking flashy doen't help a boxer win against a man who's strong on his fundamentals. With a strong foundation, a mighty tower can be constructed, and withstands the storm. With the proper foundation, truth will give you the victory you want. Strength will give you the appearance you want. Wisdom will give you something to be proud of. Knowledge will hone your assumptions like a sharpened blade and so on. Our actions will put the enemy into a state of constant reaction. We're great builders. Let's build the kind of victory that lasts.
Better question, what does this have to do with operations?
I blame discord
