In the United States we rely on other people for most of our living. At Men of the West, we favor providing for yourself if you can. It’s okay to buy your meat at the store, but you should know how to kill and butcher a deer, just in case.

There is one thing that you shouldn’t trust others to do for you. That is teach your children. It is best to homeschool. We recommend homeschooling, even if you have to make some sacrifices to do it. Of course, it isn’t possible for everyone. I may have to put my own kids into public school for awhile.

You must understand that liberals don’t reproduce by having kids of their own. Atheists have fewer children than the religious. They reproduce by co-opting yours. Your kids are being indoctrinated to believe there are more than two genders, that the climate is changing, and that whites are evil and born privileged. It may not be that bad at your school, but you can guarantee there is some leftist agenda being pushed. There is nothing worse than to have your own children turned against you.

If your kids are in that situation, you still have to spend the time to counteract that. Talk to your kids, help them with their homework. Be a pain in the teacher’s ass. Homeschool if you can. I heard stories out of Minnesota that children and teachers were going around the school angry or crying when Trump was elected. Why should politics even be on the radar screen at school? Teachers should not be teaching kids what the “correct” political positions are. They fail hard enough at just teaching math and history.

The other thing a lot of us are guilty of is leaving it up to the church to teach our kids faith. You must understand that it is your responsibility to see to it that they are brought up in the faith. Some churches have excellent classes for the children. However, most churches do not, and it is still your job as a parent to make sure they know. My kids are in vacation bible school this week. They are having a good time, but I don’t expect that they are learning much. That’s okay, as it’s my job to teach them. If your child grows up and leaves the church, it isn’t the youth pastor’s fault.

This is the most important job for the Men of the West. We have to win the battle for our children’s minds. Make no mistake. There is a battle, and we can’t afford to lose it.
