I turn 30 today.

30, being an easily divisible number, is one of those things we irrationally use to mark the beginning of an epoch in our lives. In my case it fits, as significant events now correlate with all of its factors. When I was 15 years old the government began surveilling me. The 3 years that said government stole from me under false pretense now accounts for a tenth of my life. The 6 years of earnings that I lost outside that 3 years due to government harassment now accounts for a 5th for it. I've spent a roughly a year as a refugee from American tyranny.

Having reached this milestone in my life, I reflect more upon the history of the world than my own history. I read Tacitus and Suetonius some eight years ago, but I lacked the wisdom to put them in the proper context. As a birthday present to me, I ask that you listen as I do.

Liberal democracy prides itself on bestowing liberties upon the individual, but when you investigate a given liberty, you generally find that it was first bestowed by a despot. For example, compare the eighth amendment to the United States Constitution to this remark upon the policies of Nero by Tacticus: "Restrictions were also put on the powers of the aediles and a limit fixed to the amount of bail or penalty which curule and plebeian aediles could respectively exact."

In ancient Rome, anyone imprisoned was allowed to challenge the nature of the imprisonment to see if it was done with lawful authority. However, many were refused the ability to exercise this right by curse of poverty, due to the benches of the court being only available after the furnishing of a fee. Suetonius outlined the abolition of this by that Roman emperor: "Clients should pay ... nothing at all for benches, which were to be furnished free of charge by the public treasury."

It took democracy over a millennia and a half to grant the liberties that were forged by a reviled despot, but the true irony is exactly how these liberties were restored. While the above outlines how habeas corpus was established with honesty 2000 years ago, it becomes illuminating to know in contrast how it came to exist in modern jurisprudence. For that we have to look at the Parliament of England in 1679, when the Habeas Corpus Act was passed through voter fraud. The roll call for that session of Parliament had accounted for 107 Lords present, and the Habeas Corpus Act passed 57-55, for a total of 112. Habeas corpus was 3 votes behind in the running, so they made up 5 votes. One extra, because it would have trigged an automatic recount by parliamentary bylaws if it was only 1 ahead.

So an individual liberty which was freely and gladly given early on in the career of a man that is now considered one of the most reviled despots in history could only be established in Western democracy through a complete and total subversion of the institution of democracy itself.

And now we come to the crux of the matter. Democracy feigns responsibility for individual liberties, but it did not invent them and has done a poorer job at maintaining them than other systems of governance. I have traveled this past year though many dictatorships, and I can say with confidence that their citizens are more free to conduct commerce than those of us who were born in the United States. The only freedoms that the USA offers you are those of degeneracy. You are free to commit sodomy in public, or mutilate your genitals. You certainly are not free to refuse to bake a cake in celebration of this, however. You are free to have the government move you into a neighborhood you could never afford on the dime of people who actually earn their money, but you are not free to refuse to live next to hostile foreigners with no sense of culture or decency.

Democracy also takes credit for improving quality of life, but the reality is that quality of life has improved all across the planet, even in dictatorships, because of improvements in technology. Democracy has nothing to do with increasing standards of living, just as it has nothing to do with individual liberty.

The reality is that democracy is a ridiculous and ignoble circus. How could it be more obvious as Trump announces on stage that he's bribed several of his opponents, "Deez Nuts" polls at #3, and Kanye presents an honest bid for executive office. There never was anything of substance to the institution itself. It only worked for a brief moment not because of any inherent nobility, but because of the decency and values of the people that populated it. As the descendants of those people become minorities in the lands their forefathers conquered, our government becomes progressively more like a banana republic. The Constitution, while noble in aim, was written before Bastiat even invented the first macroeconomic terminology. It was written before the Internet existed. The Constitution no longer accomplishes its aim of restraining government and creating a worthwhile civil order. We need to put the Constitution out of its misery before its last shred of dignity is gone.

The second quarter of my life is up, and it was defined mostly by humor and commercial pursuits. It was a wild ride, in which I became a millionaire, then a prisoner, and then a destitute, wandering refugee. I did some interesting things and some of them had some pretty fantastically large affects. For moments I made the world move. Now the next quarter of my life is here, and I believe the next will be defined by one question: by what memetic and technological praxes may I bring the rotten whore that is the United States government to her knees for the discipline she truly deserves? It is time for us to subvert democracy for the elevation of liberty, just as the Parliament of England did in 1679. Those of you who will join me in my aims, prepare yourselves. Our time is soon. Hail the new dawn.

Speaking as someone over a decade older than you: re-reading is a great pleasure when you can finally understand the classics.

I have re-read so much in the past 5 years that I =finally= have a glimmering of what they were getting at.

I think Churchill (or was it Twain/Clements?) who said something about the humanities being inappropriate for the young. I am still trying to hunt down that quote.

But it's true.

Shakespeare, Dante, Homer, Dickens didn't really pierce me to the heart til I had some age on me.

Welcome to middle age.

I think some humanities are important for the young. Poetry, mainly. It's developmentally important for good rhetoric and prose to read Keats and Byron at a young age, and the Eddas will instill the proper Viking love of war in children and immunize them to Marxist manipulation. Beyond that, I largely agree.

Well, it's not that they shouldn't be exposed -- my kids are really into the Vikings for some reason (I keep trying to get them into the Anglo-Saxons and/or Normans, but they don't find them as compelling. COME ON BEOWULF).

It's just that true, deep study can't be done til they're older. As kids, it's mostly exposure for familiarity. Not much in the way of understanding.

But that's how it is for most things. It took about 4 separate exposures to calculus until I really "got" it.

You can use the Eddas as a bridge to get from the Norse to the Saxon sphere of mythology. First example off the top of my head, the Norse smithy of heroes Völund in the Völundarkviða also later forged the mail shirt worn by Beowulf.


There's a lot of character crossover in that realm.

I was just looking more into Wayland, which I wasn't as familiar with... thanks!

The fact that our generation has you amongst its numbers heartens me. Because things are getting dark quickly, and if White men and women are to exist in the future, we need those capable of trolling FedGov, of provoking it into over-stretching its filthy, jewish hand.

You're right about autocratic states and much of your criticism of democracy reminds me of W.L. Pierce's. Anyone but a mentally-deranged leftist has the sense to know that history is the testing ground of ideas. We've gotten where we are because of, not in spite of, democracy. After the storm, we can institute a sane, autocratic government which respects the rights of the people because it fears them.

Until then, I'd like to thank you for inspiring me. Inspiring me to care and to believe I can (and will) make a difference. I came across your radio broadcasts during the lowest point in my life. I wanted off this ride and was seriously considering suicide. But your words spoke to me and the RAC channelled years upon years of repressed rage. The rage of an Aryan man who was used against his will as a lab rat for forced integration with subhumans. The rage of one whose very existence is currently being destroyed at an exponentially-increasing rate, and whose brothers and sisters have been brainwashed to celebrate this fact. You helped me regain faith in myself and in my ever-besieged people. You lead me to comprehend the bigger picture, preserving and advancing the cause of the greatest race the world has ever known. That was all it took.

Now I'm working on networking with others who also comprehend the big picture. I'm quietly training, learning the use of firearms, and reaching out to intelligent, independent-thinking types. When this sham of a society collapses under the weight of its own deceit, I intend to be ready. I no longer off this ride. I want to off my enemies and the enemies of my people. I don't care to debate those jews and gentile cultural marxists who're destroying literally everything that is good, just, sacred, and worthy in our world. I want to use them to deliver the longest consecutive series of curbstompings known to man, leaving miles of bloodied, broken horn-rimmed glasses in my wake. When the time comes, I intend to do my part to avenge the Waco children, Vicki Weaver, and every White woman who's been raped or murdered by a savage she was forced to associate with. Know that you're responsible for much of this.

Hail victory, brother!

I really enjoyed this essay. As an anarchist i don't agree with all of your politics, but you are absolutely right about democracy being the greatest obstacle in individual and collective progress.

Nachträglich alles gute zum Geburtstag.

Happy belated birthday!

You've accomplished great work and I hope to be around to witness (and join) the aims to which you intend to set yourself soon, weev! I happened upon your writings around the time I was being "redpilled" as to the Jewish Problem and count you as one of the chiefmost influences along my personal road to ardent European nationalism. Hail victory and once again, happy birthday! [14/88]
