After much thought, I've decided to wrap up this blog.
I'll no doubt be returning to the blogosphere sometime in the New Year, but with a new identity and hopefully something a little more thoughtful and mature, containing much of what I've learned throughout my first spell in amongst you all.
This blog started out primarily as a platform to rant. But I've been through the anger stage now, or at least have it under control to a point where I'll only direct and unleash it at the right people.
In saying that though, I find it impossible to disagree with The Captain as to what the eventual solution will be.
Some say violence is the last resort of an immature mind. I say it boils down to who initiates it. There's nothing immature about standing up and defending yourself.
The state is good at initiating violence as the aggressor, is infinitely immature in its namecalling and ostracising of "heretics" and can violently kidnap you and lock you away based on what a couple of its apparatchiks in white coats merely say about you. It can steal from you, is happy to beat you to a pulp, enslaves your children and your childrens' children with debt, lies to you, and thinks it can dictate every last facet of your life even down to what you can and can't put into your own body. Which raises the question: who really owns you? And all this, without even mentioning the EU and two impossible-to-justify invasions of the Middle East.
The state and your monarch, in collusion with some of the biggest moneymen and powerbrokers in Britain, Europe and the world, started this rigged fight a long, long time ago. Any violence on our part now is merely defensive, and not a moment too soon, frankly. I've always been peaceable, but we will likely reach a time when being peaceable sees you either bludgeoned or imprisoned.
Until the big fight comes, I keep in my mind at all times that even sheep (and their closest relatives—Mr and Mrs Normal) stampede sometimes.
To finish off, many thanks to this blog's guest authors, and also to those who've taken the time to comment and read this stuff. It's been a pleasure having you all around.
Enjoy the rest of your Christmas. And a happy 2011 to you and yours. I'll probably see you round some time.
