"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion."

~ Thomas Jefferson

A sample imageThe Rational Argumentator is a Journal for Western Man, championing the Western principles of Reason, Rights, and Progress since August 30, 2002. TRA does not eschew intellectual discourse of any depth or complexity; it welcomes civil discussion and debate of the ideas which animate human activities, cultures, and societies.  We encourage you to read the ideas TRA has to offer and, if you wish, submit your own. For a more thorough presentation of TRA's core principles, you can read TRA's  manifestos by G. Stolyarov II, TRA's Founder, Proprietor, and Editor-in-Chief.
