The story behind our name is an interesting one and I suggest you research it sometime. On this page, I will summarize it briefly.
The Palladium was a gift from Athena to the citizens of Troy. She told them that, as long as they kept it, their city would be safe from invasion and Troy did easily repel all invaders for many years. One day a couple of Greeks entered Troy through a secret passage and stole the Palladium from its temple. A short time later they introduced the Trojan Horse and, as they say, the rest is history.
The modern definition is a safeguard or anything believed to provide protection or safety. For example, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution are palladiums of the United States. The concepts they enshrine on their pages stand as a safeguard against encroachment from usurpers of power. The Palladium Group believes in the same principles. That men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.
It is our mission at The Palladium Group to provide the knowledge, Skills, and resources to protect life, liberty, and property which stand as palladia of our society. These cannot exist while we are dependent upon others for our welfare. The knowledge and relationships we build on this site are intended to ensure that everyone can stand free enough to succeed in even the most difficult circumstances.
We rely on only vetted experts in each field and discourage rumor, conjecture, or any form of bad or unsubstantiated information. Expertise on this site is based on validated experience and not on registration date, post count, or relationship to web site administrators or moderators.
We still encourage everyone to participate and share the knowledge that you do have. We hope to facilitate discussion on proven methods as well as research into new techniques and improvements. So, join us and Dare to Learn.
