New Facebook Group for Stoicism and the Military

The Stoic Warrior is a page dedicated to the philosophy of Stoicism and how it specifically relates to those that serve in and support the military around the world. Stoicism is an ancient western philosophy with its founding in ancient Greece and then popularized in Rome. It is a philosophy of life inspired by Socrates and created into a school of philosophical thinking by Zeno of Citium around 300 BC. Its focus is on Stoic virtue as the highest order of discipline for achieving a content mind, living according to one’s nature, and the understanding that it is our judgements which are the one thing that is within our control.
