You could say I was raised by them. My family has been in million dollar real estate sales since back when that was still a lot of money. We've also been into many kinds of engineering, from civil to aerospace. I was definitely raised to appreciate the concept of competition, self-improvement and seeking professional excellence.
I took a dozen or so year break to get into intelligence collection and Special Operations support, and spent the last five of those living in Iraq and Afghanistan as a contractor teaching classified tracking systems to ground troops.
I always tend to live among wolves or seek them out.
The name itself derives from what you might call my Indian name, Gray Wolf. As a child, I thought the greatest thing in the world was to be smart and accomplished enough to have wisdom that others would someday need. 'Steel' made more sense than 'gray' at that stage of my life, and it was color compatible.
At this stage, however, I want to put some of that wisdom, such as it is, to use. I'm retired from the overseas fight, but there's a greater cultural fight I feel I could contribute to. I work pretty much every day and don't have enough time to do more than hit and run fights with online liberals, but I have toyed with the idea of writing a book or starting a website for hand to hand online debate tactics. I spend a lot of time at that (waiting on clients and such) and see a lot of room for improvement for conservatives there. This r/K framework may provide the template for our side to devise an entire arsenal of weapons and tactics. It seems like that's where we get pulverized, in the ground war, and that's where reinforcements are needed.
Props on the history.
If I can help, drop me a line at (ac (at) anonymousconservative.com). I also know a lot about book publishing, if you go that route, and I am happy to help fellow Conservative Wolves. You’d be surprised at how complex that whole publishing area can be, decision-wise, and the way the machine which runs it works. There is a lot to know. If you want to go the book route, drop me a line early, to go over it - some of the info may change how you go about it.
