Why the name “Warrior’s Machete”?
Ockham’s Razor is a principle attributed to the 14th-century English logician and Franciscan friar William of Ockham. In Latin this principle is expressed various ways: “ex parsimoniae” (law of succinctness); “entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem” (entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity); “numquam ponenda est pluralitas sine necessitate” (never posit pluralities without necessity).
The term “Razor” refers to the act of “shaving away unnecessary assumptions” when explaining any phenomenon so to get at and then use the simplest explanation. All things being equal, the simplest explanation tends to be the best one, and also the one most likely to be true; one should embrace the less complicated explanation.
Success in my OWN life has been achieved by the continual, persistent application of this simple, clear principle of simple, clear truth.
I’ve titled this blog “Warrior’s Machete” because my name is, in fact, “Warrior” and, taking creative liberty here, I’ve exchanged razor for what I believe would be a warrior’s more appropriately brutal cutting weapon. I live by a warrior philosophy of life conceived by unique life experiences, and many years of serious introspection and enlightened self-study. My Creator endowed me with naturally high testosterone levels, unusual self-discipline, stalwart refusal to compromise right with wrong, and a very low tolerance for hypocrites, liars, enablers, piecemeal practice of principle, emasculated males, political-correctness, and oppressive, anti-freedom caca that doesn’t work in the private backyard of my own individual life. I am a “Being” Created with the ability to judge, so I do; and I judge myself just as harshly as I do others. I am, also, a male inspired by men who have held greater ideals and have done much greater things than any of us who are living today.
I deliver the beliefs, inspiration, ideas, thoughts, critiques and opinions on this blog with the chunk-removing force of a Machete swung by a warrior male who believes that, to sever off the unnecessary ambivalence, potentially confusing equivocation and inane relativistic entrenchment, the swing must be carried out with a mighty and annihilating follow-through.
Without apology, regret or remorse, Warrior’s Machete provides lean, muscular wisdom without fat or wiggle(room) and holds ALL human beings and their ideas and their actions to a classical, times-past standard of heroism, responsibility, integrity and commonsense, and brave, bold, stout manliness.
