The Oracle: The Reason Why

For those of you men who live out of town or perhaps don't see me with any regularity, this is the opportunity to spend a day going over a philosophy of manhood, relationships, and behavior unlike you have ever heard. The seemingly self-serving title of "The Oracle" was bestowed by young men coming in the night to ask questions about women. A few years back, one such gentlemen said that a seminar was in order. With his help and pressure was born....
THE MOJO ORACLES.

If you would like to come to town for it, let me know if you desire to use our guest rooms and we will see what we can do.


The Mojo Oracles are for Men only.
This year the seminar will be
Saturday, September 30, 2006

THE BIG HAUS

Seminar Schedule: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
First Session: THE SUM OF ALL DESIRE
Are there basic reasons for everything every man does?
The first session explores the claim that we are all after something simply obvious. It is the underpinning of a rationally sound pursuit of being a man.
Sandwich lunch
Second Session: HIERARCHY & SUBLIMITY
As the prerequisite to honour and dignity, a philosophy of position has been lost in modern America. Regaining that mode of thought is essential to becoming the gentleman.
15 minute break
Third Session: NOBLESSE OBLIGE & THE SEVERITIES
The more masculine virtues of Honour, Dignity, Integrity, and Gravity are the oft ignored virtues, and are not friendly to the modern egalitarian outlook.
15 minute break
Fourth Session: THE MOJO
The Biblical understanding of the Attraction called “Woman” and the benefits of that understanding in resisting temptation and winning a wife.
15 minute break
Fifth Session: The Word of A GENTLEMAN
Gathered from the teachings of that penultimate gentleman, Philip Stanhope, Lord Chesterfield, and the Book of the Courtier by Count Balthazar Castiglione.

I think it would be a blast to listen to you on this subject. The only other Wilson I've listened to on this convinced me I had to have a down payment for a wife. Something about a bride price or a dowery. I chose the truck; can you really blame me? All that aside, I'll be out of town with my job. Maybe next year.

Evan,
Will this be a yearly event? I don't think I can make it this year. This looks like a noble enough reason to visit my beloved Moscow.

Hail Andy!
We hope to do this annually. We did it a few years ago and then again last year. A lot depends on level interest. Blessings.

You say in your ad,

"Gathered from the teachings of that penultimate gentleman..."

I don't think you mean penultimate. Penultimate means "next to last".

The Oracle said...

"A Gentleman will admit his demerits frankly."
Or so said someone I trust.
You, sir, are correct.

Would it be equally incorrect to call Chesterfield the "ultimate" gentleman if I did not mean that he is the last in history but meant he was the final stage of growth in that direction?

Consider ratifying the following as a Non-Debatable Tenet of the Mojo Oracles:

There have existed just two gentlemen. Videlicet, Philip Stanhope and The Oracle. All others were, or are, pretenders. Thus, Philip Stanhope may be classified as the penultimate gentleman. Q.E.D.

Who was Videlicet, you ask? Tchah!
