I won’t be posting much here anymore.
It’s been a long, strange trip, y’all, and we’re just about at the end of the road. I’ve said pretty much everything I have to say, often at great length (and repetitively to boot). The last thing anyone needs at this point is more talk.
Let me quote one of the best writers in Our Thing, the Z Man:
This is the trick of alternative politics. It’s not about grand plans or sophisticated meta-political discussions. It is about offering an alternative community. Libertarians, despite the ridiculousness of their cause, hang together because membership in the community provides a sense of belonging and bestows upon them a sense of dignity. That sideline they imagine to be the high ground is not a lonely place. Imagine a similar movement built around something based in observable reality.
There it is. Get to building your community, or shut the hell up.
I’m trying to build an alternative community. It might not be the right way of life, but it has to be better than this. I hope you’ll join me, but if you don’t, I appreciate you reading for as long as you have. Best of luck, comrades.
