Notes on survival and remaking the future from the top of a fucking mountain.
Absolutely...at 88 years young, I have fought the fight since I was 15...man since his creation has attempted to control other men to do their bidding and we the unlearned ones have compromised our very souls just to get along. That time must end, now, wake up and act like your very existence depends on that action...because it does...
What an amazing piece.
This is a Beautiful Poetic Summary. I love the way you word TRUTH!!
Mountain tops give you a good view but sitting here on top of the world, above the 64th parallel, one sees it all even better.
Civilization, it was great while it lasted.
Brother, you have written from my heart. The view from the mountaintop never ceases to amaze. The truth will make you free but it will not make you happy.
Incredible post, thank you so much. 🙏❤️
Your essay may be one of the most profound I have encountered since this sad episode on history unfolded over two years ago.
Your point is clear: nothing changes until we change it, "Critical mass", as you put it.
I've been bouncing among trees on the edge of the mountain for 18+ months, occasionally making a flight to a higher altitude, but always returning to the forest.
I'm ready for the mountain, and thank you for your clear thoughts.
Totally inspired insight. My initial thinking was:
- In a past life I was a hiring manager. I would spend hours lying awake at night trying to think of ways to get the interviewed to reveal their nature/feelings. Your description was amazing.
- I recognize the levels you describe in those I encounter however, I have been mostly unable to help them make progress along the path to awareness. Thanks for all you do.
I've been thinking about what I call "America's German Dilemma" lately, too. You draw out the parallels and sticking points perfectly.
This confirms my thesis that we seem to import the cultures that we conquer, and wind up vanquished by them later in our own countries. In our case, we appear to have imported a warty facsimile of Weimar German, from its school system to its decadence, and are saddled with all the accompanying psychoses as a result.
To add to your comparison with another analogy, in our domestic reenactment of Germany's 'troubles,' the average American citizen is cast as the selfish NAZI anti-vaxxer standing against the noble Allies' benign attempts to "save" us from the COVID invasion. Also, the more we oppose the Cathedral's obscure agenda items, such as its taxes on energy, insurance mandates and not-so-subtle inflationary "theft" of our savings, the more we should expect the media organs to resurrect the old, stale propaganda that we deployed against Germany in WWII, and to sling it inwards at Americans.
Remember, Hillary swung that rancid cod at Trump in 2016. And it still worked!
It's been over 70 years since VE Day, and a "nice" medical tyranny presides over America, and it is the regular, skeptical citizens that are the new Jews, and that must suffer the cruel insult of being cast by Vichy corporate media as selfish NAZI-like denial-ists for their "obstinance."
In short, We Are All Germans Now. And more parallels early 1900's Atlanticists' messes will become apparent in the months ahead. That is, unless we're back at War with Russia over Ukraine, and there's no oxygen left for the deeper discussions. And that, my friends, will be another parallel to marvel at.
Another brilliant read. I started as a forest man 2 years ago and have evolved through 2 years of research to a mountain man. But if I am afraid to share this with my urban man friends maybe I am not really there yet. Your thoughts?
gratefully received, eloquent and to the point, thank you!
I am at the top of the mountain with wounds that bleed from time to time.
great work...entertaining and informative...sure makes those 'rebels' look pretty disingenuous...i'm with Clapton and Morrison
I'd like to say that I'm on my mountain, but as with all parables like this, I suspect identifying yourself as being in the victory position is a trap, like announcing you've achieved enlightenment.
So I suspect that what I feel is THE mountain is perhaps just a very high hill, or a sub peak.
I suspect this because my every day is filled with hate and anger. Urban man isn't welcome on my mountain, and in fact the thing I like best about my mountain is the unobstructed field of fire. I don't want to reason with Urban Man or pray for him or give him anything because for two years Urban Man has howled for my death and worse from behind his filthy blue paper mask. Fuck him and his journey and his redemption. I hope he's eaten by wolves the moment he strays outside his beloved sheepfold and realizes his folly while watching his intestines slide down their gullets.
All I know anymore is rage and I crave all-out war (but not in any real, actual sense, dear monitors; I categorically reject all political violence and you should too) and guillotines and nooses. Not one fucking apology has made its way up to my mountain and I do not forgive without apologies.
And it's eating me alive and I know it's bad for my health. The only good days are the ones I manage to go without thinking about covid or thinking about the future.
So I'm probably not actually on the mountain. This is probably a case of premature ascension.
Seems to me the first step in climbing the mountain is not giving a shit what The Urban Man thinks. That said, he WILL make a lot of loud noises when you tell him with words or actions to GFH.
So the first step is developing courage, not so easy today in cancel culture when most are not economically self-sufficient.
