We are called to shine the glory of the Lord. In an ideal situation, the whole world would be consciously under the Covenant of Noah. But we don’t live in that world; we live in something very ugly, something God is allowing to go to Hell for reasons we cannot comprehend in our fleshly existence. Our best chance to shine His glory is to offer provisional support for whatever provides us the best opportunity to shine.
If you pay attention to news sources, you’d never know there was anything but left and right in the US. And you would get the impression that most lefties are organized under the Democrats, while the right is under Republicans. That whole frame of reference is a thin veneer that could collapse any moment. It’s held in place by little more than the sheer noise of mainstream media, desperately trying to control the mass consciousness.
Among the various real political movements is a genuine thread of nationalist insurgency. It’s small, but far more influential than anyone outside it wants to believe. For the most part, it is not yet a self-conscious movement, but is the net thrust of a lot of angry oppressed people quite willing to work against the oppression. It is essentially a libertarian drive, highly individualist in nature. Yet what is painfully obvious is that this broad group is fairly consistent in their resistance.
We should understand that, despite any adherence to such higher values as liberty and freedom, the one thing that will consistently drive these people to action is the threat to their property. And that sense of ownership extends well beyond mere material goods, into the virtual realm and the sense of owning their personal data. Granted, most people don’t have a good mental grasp on what could and should constitute their personal data property, but they do sense a threat in that area of their lives. It’s not that we should set out to manipulate those fears in our favor, but be aware that this is how their minds work.
Despite our radical differences in outlook, people of a libertarian bent are our best allies in the political landscape today. We don’t have to promote everything they believe in, but we should make every effort to extend protection over them. None of this keeps us from simply trusting God for things we can’t control. Rather, we are actively supporting the one thing out there that is closest to where we stand. This puts us in a position to draw closer to us anyone who might be so inclined by the Lord’s guiding hand.
One thing is for sure: so-called “conservatism” in America has been a consistent failure. This is no accident; it’s always been the false flag of elitists who intended to subvert liberty. It’s the same people who promoted the US Constitution as mere propaganda. There’s nothing wrong with waving the US battle flag, but supporting the institutions of US government is another matter. There could be better flags to wave, but this one will do, if it is used to represent the practical libertarian ideals of the US Constitution.
Some of those ideals include an anti-war stripe, a broadly anti-interventionist approach to international relations. People should be free to use their own property as they see fit, and they shouldn’t be slaves to someone else’s profits. Freedom to choose a lot of repulsive and evil things is better than being forced to adhere to someone else’s ideas about being nice. We’d rather openly denigrate “being nice” than to play that game. What we should hate most is the common instinct of people to control others, regardless of how much good is alleged to be the reason.
Our faith community most certainly does need more and different kinds of leadership. I am by no means the heart and soul of what we do under Radix Fidem. But I do know what my heart requires of me, and I’m praying you can learn that from me. So while I’m not asking you to join me in working to support online libertarians, I don’t see how you can serve God and without resisting the various collectivist idolaters trying to rebuild the Tower of Babel.
On this blog, I’m going to promote genuine nationalism, particularly for Americans. I’m also going to promote the virtual tools in pursuit of nationalism. It’s more than computers and software; it’s a much broader category of online protocols and services that keep like-minded people connected. I’ll keep offering tech support in some of my posts, but I see a lot of work that needs doing in fighting the collectivist controls already asserted over peoples’ online presence, and I’ll fight for their freedom to promote their own interests. To be honest, I don’t have a lot concrete ideas right now, but I feel moved to start moving in that direction.
Radix Fidem still needs evangelists, but I’m not the best man for that job. I’m convinced some of you are a whole lot better at that than I am. I’m not much of a harvester, but I do a handy job with the plow. My calling is to break up the fallow ground of awareness. I do this in hopes that the Lord will move others to jump into this task, but I know I’m not in charge of deciding what gets planted, nor anything following that. All I know is where I’m called to plow.
