Communicatio Ratio is the second core element of Loricism. It is Latin for "reasoned communication." If Ingenium is about development of the individual to achieve self-mastery, this is about development of communication skills and ideas. Since Loricism aims to create a culture of reason and justice, being able to communicate ideas effectively is essential. Communicatio Ratio focuses on communication skills, logic, reason, dealing with manipulation, etc.
Self-Defense of the MindEdit
Loricism, being influenced heavily by the martial arts, is essentially a full-spectrum martial arts system (when combined with a physical martial arts system, such as Viam Chao). It aims to provide a means of self-defense, not only physical, but of the mind. Communicatio Ratio provides the mental self-defense from external sources, such as manipulation and control, and Ingenium provides mental self-defense for the spirit (morale) by handling mental attacks on ourselves from ourselves. We sabotage our own progress with negative self-belief and poor decisions.
