Jason, I have Tribe on my Kindle reading list but currently in the midst of an epic fantasy book (Words of Radiance). I’ve listened to a lot of Junger’s talks and interviews and think he’s dead on. What’s interesting in what you pointed out also confirms the Easterlin Paradox—that as countries grow richer and more comfortable, the people in them grow more depressed. Veterans then return to this landscape and spiral without the community and battle to fight any longer. I’m happy you’re here too, brother.
