WE CAN FEEL YOUR PAIN
Maybe you’re a Soldier. Maybe you’re a Businessman. Maybe you’re a Street Cop.
Maybe you’d call yourself an Average Joe.
You’ve been told by your academic and professional superiors to “think critically,” to “make more sound decisions,” and to “develop innovative solutions” to “increasingly complex problems.”
You’ve heard it all. But when it comes down to it, the more you do what you’re told, the more you feel:
…Choked out by Groupthink…
…Prisoner to “But We’ve Always Done It This Way!”
My name is Richard Barrett…
…I’m a 22 year old Senior at Regent University. All my friends are…
- Third World immigrants…
- Blue Collar Average Joes…cops, welders, school teachers…
We may all come from different walks of life, but we’re all sick of academic stupidity!
The more experience we get, the more we’ve found out that the higher the institution of learning is, the farther you get away from the real world!
We’ve kept hearing academics rattle off soundbites like this gem from Thomas J. Watson:
“All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work.”
BUT THE GUYS WHO
TRUMPET THIS STUFF THE MOST…
…You know, the guys who demand you reject “bias,” get past “dogma,” or ignore “revelation”…
…They’re the guys who are the most biased, bitter, and dogmatic of them all.
Are you sick and tired of the hypocrisy and the duplicity of these ivory tower intellects?
Do you really want to think critically about the big picture, but feel shamed by the big wigs with PHd at the end of their names?
Do you want to challenge yourself and grow in ways you never thought possible?
We’re right there with you!
That’s why we created the Mind at War.com.
THE MIND AT WAR.COM IS
THE PLACE FOR YOU!
Mind at War.com is the place where B.S. flies out the window, where operators and average joes alike get together to talk about the big picture, where real world guys share wisdom straight…
….Without out all the ivory tower pretension.
Let’s face it.
You’re nobody’s fool. You’ve been around the block a few times.
Maybe you’ve survived combat zones. Maybe you’ve known crime, bankruptcy, hard times. Regardless of who you are, military or civilian…
…You know how the real world really works…
…Not the way academics wish it would.
Around here, we base everything we do off a simple motto:
“THINK BIG AND BASICALLY”
While most academics base their work on complicated theories with a lot of moving parts….
…Our Motto is built around a simple code we call “THE BIG 4.”
WHAT IS “THE BIG 4”?
They’re our call sign for the Four Cardinal Virtues of Western Civilization–Courage, Prudence, Wisdom, and Justice–in plain English.
They’re the big picture patterns we fit our work into…so we don’t miss the forest for the trees.

SFOD-D commander Lt. Col. Pete Blaber once said:
“LIFE IS ABOUT FINDING PATTERNS.”
That’s the way we operate here at Mind at War.com.
We look at military thinkers, theorists, and practitioners throughout history in the context of their time and culture–not ours.
Then we take that information, and find “The Big 4” Patterns–eternal lessons that dictate mankind actions yesterday, today, and forever.
Gen. Alfred Gray, USMC and founder of Marine Corps University once said:
“WANT A NEW IDEA? READ AN OLD BOOK.”
That’s exactly what Mind at War.com is all about. But instead of talking it to death in academic jargon to confuse the uninitiated…
…We actually do it.
So welcome to Mind at War.com. Explore topics at your leisure.
