Gl Piggy, Ditch the Hoodie
The hoodie: comfortable and versatile, eliminating the need for separate headgear on cold nights. But too much association with the "bad elements" of society?

The 5th MovNat Principle: Vital
I think there is something to what MovNat is trying to teach with respect to human mobility and strength development. This week the founder says something like this on his FB: "Matriarchal societies are wiser."
Roussea taken to an extreme, with the noble savage replaced by the noble savage woman. He has not experienced the misandry that follows feminism taking over a society yet? How many hunter-gatherer groups could be properly said to have been matriarchies? Has he not done research into that point? He doesn't claim to be recovering that sort of ancestral fitness, but it is close. Too much reaction against "civilization" for his own good?
