The Modern Knight – What does it take and why you should be one.
A true Knight does not look away when those in view are being threatened or oppressed in any way shape or manner. The Modern Knight must be ever vigilant toward the current day threats of espionage, loss of liberty, and the control of our government at every level, Local, State and Federal.
Make a difference, Help Others, Learn Chivalry –Courtesy, generosity, valor, and dexterity in symbolic arms.
The five main qualities of the Modern Knight.
The objects of loyalty encompass principles, causes, ideas, ideals, religions, ideologies, nations, governments, parties, leaders, families, friends, regions, racial groups, and indeed anyone or anything to which one's heart can become attached or devoted. Modern society has made the attribute or ideal of loyalty rare. The Modern Knight of today is, supposed to be loyal to God, his liege, and his country. Loyalty demands the traits of honesty and faithfulness, being a law-abiding citizen, and promoting the ideals for which you were made a Knight.
Courtesy is a gentle politeness and courtly manners and respect for others. In today’s ever increasing busy world civility, respect, gentle manliness, and kindness is hard to find as a basic principal of everyday life. A Knight today faces the absence of respect, civility, courtesy and gentleness in our society on a regular basis. The Modern Knight can fight this lack of manners by being courteous to all and ignoring the rude, and by using the appropriate law enforcement system when necessary.
Generosity is the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return. It can involve offering time, assets or talents or to aid someone in need. Often equated with charity is virtue, generosity is widely accepted in society as a desirable trait. A Modern Knight is one who is giving of one's time, money, wealth, and knowledge
A Modern Knight is one who has strength of purpose, desire, mental power, moral power and not necessarily muscular power. The Knight of medieval times needed muscular power to perform his combat duties. The Modern Knight is armed symbolically with the sword to fight evil and injustice in the world.
The quality of being modest, reverential, even politely accommodating, and never being arrogant, contemptuous, rude or even self-abasing. Humility, in various interpretations, is widely seen as a virtue in many religious and philosophical traditions. The Modern Knight with these qualities should never be misinterpreted or mistaken for weakness, it is a challenge for the knight to be strong, tenacious, noble, courageous, kind and yet humble.
In the words of John Walter Wayland
The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
