So on the back of last Thursday’s email on Brotherhood, seems some men are confused about group size – and more importantly asking the question of:
“How many men is optimal for collective honour…?”
So let me explain.
In my experience, when it comes to men effectively pushing in the same direction then a group of ten to thirty is optimal.
… A size that is universally considered tactically effective because every man personally KNOWS the strengths and weaknesses of each and every other man who has got his back.
That said, studies have shown that when it comes to brotherhood and forging forward, that number can be stretched towards one hundred – without losing connection.
Once you pass a one-fifty, you my friend are on thin ice:
Bonds become shallow…
Trust breaks down…
… AND more rules are needed to stop men going rogue.
It’s why past a certain point, for self-made men of action like you and I, there is little strength in large numbers…
And exactly why The Fellowship operates at a strict limit of thirty men.
- Alliances become tight.
- Trust becomes elevated.
- Enforced discipline stays at a minimum.
Point being, if you’re looking for other men to have your back and personally call you on your shit, then small and strong is the best way to storm any castle.
