Our Mission: The everyman is not the average man. He is the man who seeks the truth, sacrifices for those he loves, and engages with his world. He is honest and does not pretend to be something more or less than he is. True to its name, this journal aims to provide relevant, reasonable, and above all readable commentary for the everyman. This means that we oppose sophistry and condescension along with vulgarity and pandering. The everyman deserves nothing less.
