Why should we fight?

Interesting answers to an interesting question.

The Master of Ceremonies at the London conference will be former US marine Terrence Popp, who runs the website Redonkulas. He spoke at the first International Conference on Men’s Issues, held in Detroit in 2014. The start of the MC’s introduction of him:

Green Beret, Airborne Ranger, paratrooper, infantry soldier; former professional fighter; college graduate; author, poet, warrior, comedian. Worked in the following professions: soldier, fighter, financial planner, investment banking, mortgage banker, real-estate agent, retail.

Has received the following awards: two times, Purple Hearts; two times, Combat Infantry Badges; Airborne wings with Combat Jump star; Expert Infantryman Badge; Green Beret; Ranger Beret; FFKA North American Champion Belt, 1998.

In our 2015 general election manifesto we had a section (pp.38,39) on Armed Forces veteran’s mental health issues, and a good part of the content related to Terrence. It included some words I found on his website, uttered by President Calvin Coolidge (1872 – 1933):

The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
