“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Didactic Mind, Ep. 46: From 4GW to 0GW

by | Sep 13, 2020 | Podcasts | 0 comments

This week’s podcast is up, and once again I got the track number wrong right at the beginning of it, but we shall carry on regardless. This is Episode 46, not 45, and it’s all about 4th Generation Warfare as applied on the streets of America:

As always, if you want to support my work, stop by Superb Shaving and pick up some great shaving products from Amazon (yeah, yeah, I know, they’re not exactly Good People).

And if you want to buy a course PACKED with amazing content, with hours of my lovely dulcet voice telling you exactly how to plan your escape from the coming fire and flame, check out Limitless Living – which is only available until 12am EST TONIGHT, so get your grimy paws on that ASAFP.

Books referenced in the podcast:

Other books by Martin Van Creveld:

I did get a book name in my podcast wrong. The actual USMC tactical manual is called Fleet Marine Force Manual One (FMFM-1): WARFIGHTING. Not Strategy. My bad.

The Western Way of War: Infantry Battle in Classical Greece by Dr. Victor Davis Hanson is essential and indeed required reading for any student of history and warfare. I also highly recommend A War Like No Other: How the Athenians and Spartans Fought the Peloponnesian War.

Also – a bunch of books by LTC Tom Kratman that are seriously worth reading:

The Russell Kirk article that I discussed at the beginning of the podcast can be found here.

LTC Kratman’s article about the OODA Loop and its (mis)applications can be found right here.

The article by our friend Adam Piggott, about treating our enemies like cartoon characters, is to be found right here – it is essential reading and I strongly recommend it. You should also buy his books – Pushing Rubber Downhill and Run Guts, Pull Cones.
