The culture pills as the five stages of grief our society has been struggling with: denial(Blue), anger(Red), bargaining(White), depression(Black), and acceptance(No pill). Pills aren't a solution, they can only treat the symptoms. They only mediate the pain while you heal and regain your strength until you no longer need them to cope. Be wary of addiction. We are strong enough to overcome it. You are strong enough to heal.

Oscillation Ad Infinitium: The Metamodern Path


A metapolitical frame assesses and orders all political mechanisms and frameworks by their success, use and raw function, oscillating between what works best for the situation of interest as well as on a global stage. It is both empirical and spiritual, pre-, post- and modern simultaneously and separately. 
 
People need faith even after the death of God to nihilism and technology and so God is reborn, both dead and living as is the nature of true omnipotence. Tradition is not averse to technology or even the inverse, but easily synthesized into a symbiotic harmony with the other. Our post-modern revelations are contrasted by the modern growth and pre-modern instinct, each giving the other relevance, importance and a basis for further development: different movements of the same piece of orchestration; chapters in the same book that are not separate but build upon each other in the same cycle, our grand story as a species; each pinnacle a spike on the same forward moving trendline; different snags on the skyline of history. 
 
It is entirely possible to take the lessons we've learned from post-modernity and apply them to the advances of modernity while keeping true to the pre-modern instincts and methods that have kept us going for thousands of years. Instead of being dominated by weaponized technology we might use it to further support nature and the world we live on as we, even in our ever advancing synthetic creations are still a part of nature itself, both subject to and the masters of the march of time, genetics and pendulum swinging from order to chaos and back. The nihilism and rampant individuality of post-modernity has broken down and burst into flames, leaving many without a purpose and reason to push on, to achieve, instead opting to identify as anti-this or -that. The enlightenment and its liberal values is the sinking vessel this destructive, faceless mass pilots, all the while punching holes in the hull; anything to accellerate the spiral to the bottom of the middle of the ocean for researchers to haul up to the surface in a thousand years and ponder with a scoff. The tribalism and animism of premodernity grow stronger by the day, the facade of this farcicle society barely clinging to the structures left half standing in the ruins and rubble of all we've built and willingly demolished. In that rubble hides the bright hope for the future we so long for, not in the distant past or volatile present.

Take back your nation-culture, its waiting for you to act. There is no one who can or will save you, only you can do that. Make yourself strong and worthy that you might make a sufficiently strong family which in turn strengthens your community, the foundations of a powerful and prosperous society and nation. Honor your ancestors and the blood they've shed simply to bring you into existence by carrying their torch forwards, with all of the advances that make life today so comfortable. Do great works, prove them right in their struggle to continue the lineage, and give worth and value to the battles they fought, justification for your very existence. 

Be a warrior-scholar and defend what you love. Be the man your father and great grandfather would be proud to pass their sword and pen to. Use machines to make life better and avoid the sins that might consume you. Take the hard path knowing you will struggle, there will be pain and suffering, but on the other side of the pass you will be a greater, more capable man, with power over himself and his own future. 

Use all we've learned in deconstructing modernity, discarding what is useless and integrating the beneficial, regardless of superstition and stigma. When the dust settles will you be proud of the kingdom you've built or will you offer your castle to the torches of the mob in shame, unable to proclaim victory and success? Don't you want to with the war that is life with all of its struggles?

In the ashes of the empires, charred and broken, lay everything you need to come out on too and leave a better future for those who come after. Heartbreak and joy await in abundance. It is up to you to carve the path forward and make something great of what you've got. Whether your role is as an author, a sculptor, an artist of the canvas or the choir, a tradesman, a politician, a warrior, a philosopher, scientist or mathematician, a man of the cloth or a healer, you have a part to play in shaping this Earth. Learn from our collective mistakes. It is your duty, your responsibility, and your gift to mankind. It is your legacy.

Reject ideology; embrace metamodernity.

For the Future: A Proposal
T. Griffin

The current governor has violated the state constitution several times over and as such is illigitimate. A democrat supermajority and useless republicans have made meaningful and effective change otherwise impossible. I see only one peaceful solution and that is to split the state legally and voluntarily. This is not seccesion as we have no intention of leaving the republic. As the state that still upholds the current state constitution we would keep the name and flag. 

We will not give up our free speech, right to assemble, medical privacy or our right to keep and bear arms. This is not negotiable, it is the law of the land enumerated and protected by the state and federal constitutions. Greater Idaho and State or Jefferson are losing strategies, but this split lets Salem and the Willamette Valley keep their electoral votes while we default to the standard 3(as opposed to giving Idaho 1). 

It is a win for all sides and there is no reason not to pursue this course. We have our own infrastructure in place enough to function fine without the tyranny of the democrat majority and Salem's corruption. I put forth Klamath Falls as the new capitol of Oregon. 

Police, Press, Professors and Politicians is all it takes, so if you are capable why not stand up for what you know is right? If I find myself written in again I will sponsor the bill to get this done myself, but regardless I will push this until it goes through or I am dead. I seek peace, justice and liberty for generations to come and for both sides. 

I believe with all of my heart, my soul and my mind that this is how we achieve that for all. Oregon must split into two states. For our children and their children; for our fathers and their fathers. By the past, For The Future.

 The Beast of Burdens


 Simply look around you and you will see the beast. There is nowhere it does not tread, nothing it does not hear and see and the scent of fear gives it ever more power. It stalks the streets, the halls, the woods and the beaches from coast to coast, unrestrained by borders, walls or fences. There is no sanctuary from the cathedral. For hundreds of years it has devoured the people slowly, one inch at a time, ever expanding and simultaneously shedding clumps of decayed and rotting flesh. The powers that be, the systems we live in, this new religion of materialism and neo-liberal capitalism by day and communist dystopia by the mask of night’s darkness, yet ever the same beast. No longer the innocent pup we sought as a companion at the dawn of modernity, it hungers for control, high on madness and terror and far too massive to be heeled by any leash of the East or the West. The enlightenment and its consequences have come back around to bite the hand that once tried to tame it, weaponized by those who would call themselves elite. 
 It stands grounded firmly in our laws by sturdy hoof, politicians lobbied and corrupted, robbing the “lesser” man of more than money could ever buy. Our freedoms, our rights and responsibilities, the very lives of the people who still champion its values as though virtue were in and of itself a virtue. From this strong stance upon the stable high ground of the inflating dollar and the ash of the consititution it deftly and mercilessly swings its claws, instilling fear and obedience in the people with a badge and bars, skillfully missing all who proclaim it the higher power in place of faith and decimating generations of those who even but think to question its authority even by accident, be it a small business, a family, or even an individual person. Lives ruined for the sake of intimidation and compliance, no demographic spared annihilation for such arrogance, and everyone so audaciously within proximity of the victim. 
 After each such sacrifice the beast bellows, news networks and journals decrying the sinner as the true evil, the great wrong of the world. They drag the families over the coals, expose the identity of child and adult alike, and destroy not just their livelihoods but any future chance of opportunity and ability to survive, let alone thrive and provide. Night after night and all through the day it howls and screeches in echoed chorus “Racist! Misogynist! Homophobe! Bigot! Sinner!” with unrelenting fervor. The chants reverberate and magnify in its heart, the children of all nations, the very future of this world, spoon fed to each by their school teachers for five days a week and the ever present media every waking hour otherwise. But if the beast of burden is indeed our police, our politicians, the press and our professors, the very society in which we live, then surely it is as invulnerable as it is omnicient. Is it not?
 It is not, for it must feed upon the people lest its putridity overtake it. Though no man or band nor military force has the might to face it head on, the beast may be starved through abandonment. Where the imagery of the Cathedral presents a holy fortress of sacred ground and impenetrable walls too divine to even consider opposing, the Beast presents a small yet potent truth. It cannot fathom to be ignored and avoided, much less defend against such rejection. A life built parallel, from the bottom up, not tethered nor opposing it, can indeed destroy the food chain one link at a time, leaving the system itself no option but to cave in under its own decrepit girth. Strong and capable men and women and their kin make good families, together becoming a community without ever the need to unite or fly a flag at all (a delicious morsel for the creature), simply by living in parallel to the established chaos called “order”, never intersecting or ever dependent upon it. 
 There is no turning the beast back to the pup it once was, and no amount of returning to tradition will ever change that, but we can move forward and ever so slowly away from its desperate jaws and pitiful roars. There is no need to throw away our advancements if they are integrated with honor, responsibility, and hand forged community. Tradition and technology if properly synthesized present a perfect harmony, easily integrated into the very structure of a community and the natural world around us. Furthermore while a single individual may be easily shattered, together such a risk is reduced to a laughable state if not altogether nullified. Its up to you to live the life you know you should in your heart, that you feel tugging at your ancestral legacy, that this way that we are cannot ever measure up to. If you are to slay the beast you must simply live.

On The Lament Of Man


 At the deepest, darkest, lowest point of the abyss lies your true self. It is at the bottom of the vast emptiness that you will meet your absolute weakness and greatest strengths, and the specters of your soul that would stay there. When met with grief, with true melancholy, you will know just how much strength you yet have in the corners of your heart, and whether or not you can still fight, whether you can still stand or not. In that true void, beneath your shadow, let your willpower boil up into a passionate frenzy of anguish, of lament, and of momentum. Though the future likely holds depths beyond your fathoming, you must ride that willpower forward into the future, for better or worse, for to give up is the true failure and the ultimate shame. 
 Where no one dare tread let alone peek you will find your own monsters. Those that would inhibit you, shackle you to your past, have you wallow in the shade of the peaks that hide from you the purest rays of sunshine you know cannot now reach you. They are your monsters to fight, to best and to conquer. Even those twice your height and breadth will surely fall were you only to muster the courage to bridle the steed that is your willpower and ride forth into tomorrow. Faster, stronger, may you push forth and ascend the cliffs of the chasm in pursuit of that light. You are alone, but that is your honor and your blessing. Only you can save yourself. Let that darkness boil over and fasten its shape to your own, as armor, as sword, and as the very fuel with which you might propel yourself from the fissure. One step at a time, every step stronger and more able to carry that weight with respect for yourself, and for others who do the same, and without pride to shun those who cannot lest you become them. As a beacon so harshly lit in their eyes you will stand victorious, a model for which they might learn their own power to push through and charge after their own dreams, for all the success and failure that lay in wait. Only look back to see how far you’ve come; long not for the path you’ve already traversed or it will call to those horrors you fought so hard to overcome. 
 Let no man call it easy or pleasant. Those words are reserved for the fool and the feeble and you are neither. You are the man you chiseled from marble to shine with the glory of your spirit as it ever reaches for the stars. Leave that armor of malice and shame upon your broad shoulders so that those demons are unable to deny you victory in even darker and lower dips in your path. Hide not your spark nor your shadow, but ride humbly forth in both firmly within your grasp, sheathed at your hip and ever presently available. You are your own future, and your fathers future, just as he was his and your sons will be theirs. No matter how dark it gets you must ride forth on your own. Sooner than later you will feel the warmth of the day once more, even more formidable than before, never ready but ever able to withstand the next night and all the darkness it may bring. For in that night is where we see those stars we ever reach for.

The Meaning of Life

The point in your existence is to enjoy it. The hedonist will hear in this statement permission to misbehave and sin but the good man knows what it means. Life is pain, struggle, sacrifice, betrayal and prosecution, but its on you to enjoy your battles, to smile through it no matter how hard it really gets. Yes, its tough. You are strong. If you cannot carry that weight now you will shoulder it later, when you're stronger, more skilled, wiser, more clever and with your brothers.

The value of the responsibilities you take grows with every success, and each victory is hard won. That nothing worth doing is easy rings true ad infinitum. The more you carry, the more you can carry and the easier it gets. The easier it gets the more you can achieve.

A strong individual is the foundation of a strong family, a strong family for a strong community. A family of communities is an invincible culture, a nation impervious to time itself. We may call this tradition but its coded into our DNA, genetically selected for from generation to generation, by harsh northern winters and war after brother war.

There is an element of chance but it is no mistake. It is simply destiny, the product of an eternal struggle. You are here for a reason, and there is joy and pleasure in being a part of that fight. There is no greater responsibility or nobler cause than the fathers of our fathers and the sons of our sons; the very future itself.

There is no reward for the trials of existence that you don't find for yourself. Those who never look can never see. Yet if we smile to each other as we share this weight it gets lighter for all of us, and hell gets a little less miserable and hot. Enjoy your pain and smile because you are alive. Enjoy your life.

You Know The Thing

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are not created equal. Not in height. Not in intelligence. Not in heart and spirit. Not even in luck. Not in any way at all. The enlightenment was wrong.

If one is born with inalienable rights, he is born with no obligation or responsibility, no need to earn or maintain those rights we hold so elevated in the west. I'd level this critique directly at Jordan Peterson's lecture on selling conservatism to youths, and the need for responsibility. In nearly the same breath he puts the enlightenment values of equality on a pedestal and topples it with a demand for responsibility. There's no need to to deconstruct this, he has defeated his own argument in making a valid point.

Its true that we require that responsibility to live a meaningful life and leave the world a better place than we found it. Where is the incentive? Is man so pure and enlightened that he will work hard and sacrifice now for the future of his own accord when endless vices and distractions are not only constantly at his fingertips but worshipped by his peers?

The post-modern religion is corporate consumership, rule of the mercantile class and merchant-kings. They can buy as many knights as they need to quash you. They can quench the masses with endless delight. They sell us our food and leverage the farms and ranches with land restriction and crop control, filling stores with convenient garbage. They buy the churches virtue and their silence so their own global cathedral may cast a shadow over all of the people of the world.

Simply look around you and ask yourself if you are equal to your fellow man. Is your culture equal to others' culture? Are any nations, even under the same union, at all equal? Is a mountain a valley? Is a forest the sea?

The West is the West.

Cast off your shackles and make yourself elite alongside your brothers.
