As usual I’ve written notes of what I ought to blog about since there is a lot to pick from.
That being said I’m currently staring at three articles, whose presence in my tabs are starting to annoy me since I haven’t really gotten around to writing what I was planning.
So even though this isn’t the intended context … well here we go:
This ad was deemed racist by news outlets and social media platforms alike. I’m not quite sure why it is racist to enforce and protect ones border, nor do I understand why it is “mean” to point out issues with imported criminals. As I’ve written about before: I performed in a couple of prisons over in Norway in 2014, and I was told to speak English when addressing the prisoners since so many of them were foreigners. The political opinion circus grows old at one point or the other. What’s annoying is that even if you lose interest, decisions taken by others still impact you and your family and what you do…
The synagogue shooting in America was sad for sure, but this article is full of inaccuracies to such an extent that it was painful to read it. I now struggle with reading “the news.” I was contemplating pointing out the inaccuracies, but I do believe that this is something that I’ve done on other occasions with other articles on this blog, and an activity such as that can become uninteresting at a certain point. I do believe in Truth. Which is probably why I shouldn’t read “the news.”
In this article about the UK recruiting foreigners with no ties to this country into their military, (not as part of separate units, but as part of the main body), it is claimed that Britons don’t want to fight anymore. I think I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this blog that you might get a bit of a recruitment crisis if you are engaged in all sorts of strange abstract operations abroad, maybe not with those who just want to fight for the sake of fighting, but surely among those who are patriots and want to fight to defend their country specifically. The claim of the article is therefore false. Just because a specific political establishment struggle to recruit people for their military campaigns, doesn’t mean that there is an unwillingness to fight for an actual Nation and/or a home-territory. Something that has been largely left out of our “news” is the fact that young men travelled over to Ukraine to voluntarily fight. A war that I have never mentioned on this blog at all. There are also Westerners who went down to Syria (I believe) just to get combat experience. New-Europeans have also joined their original Nations by voluntarily fighting for their ancestral in-group, which again means that there are plenty of people on this continent willing to fight in one way or another, whether they join our enemies or go private. Whether they protest their governments or go into a war zone voluntarily, showing up out of nowhere to sign up to fight for whatever cause.
Once again, I should probably avoid “the news.” There are enough books out there to read anyway and I personally don’t think that anything is more relevant than History. My brother is currently reading about pre-Nation-State Europe and that is surely an interesting topic to look into.
The organic nature of humanity is well reflected in what we build. Civilisations are born and nurtured before they rot and decompose. One political order arise only to eclipse another. A ruling class is built upon the ashes of the ruling order of the past. And on and on this cycle goes, perfectly described in Ecclesiastes: “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.”
