Sebastian Junger’s book Tribe was discussed. Men need to be in small groups struggling together towards a common goal. This is deeply embedded in our DNA. Today’s society is not set up for this type of existence. F3 is an antidote, a part of the Resistance to the atomistic, fluid existence that the 21st Century technocratic West promotes. We must continue to foster our bonds and our struggle.



3 minutes is quite a long time actually. We discovered this after about 1 minute of merkins. Many in the group seemed to be quite pleased with this discovery, for various personal reasons.
