Eureka moments can often be overwhelming to people. They are points when “insights” start coming together. It is always exciting to be an analyst and “discover” something new. We often have “eureka moments” in great historical crises.
Darwin had a eureka moment. Galileo had a eureka moment. Luther worked furiously in the night on his rewrite at Wittenberg Castle.
To people who are not in “the new paradigm,” eureka moments look insane at first, but then begin to make a lot more sense. Making a lot of sense rhymes with “your two cents” thrown in the town fountain of knowledge. It is a donation to your community.
Can anyone honestly say that Wall Street and Washington do not need to have a eureka moment? Do you think those places are working as they should? What about our culture? How is that working out?
Would you rather work for The Man or for yourself and your country? For BRA’s money or for duty, truth, and honor? How would you like to be, say, Martin Luther (to use a metaphor) in the Lost Cause of the reconstruction of the Confederate States of America?
No, I have not lost my mind. I have just deeply thought about a lot of things over the years. I’ve listened to a lot of different people and studied all kinds of perspectives. I have watched a lot of people. I have argued with a lot of people and considered what they had to say.
Time to calmly explain what is up. I have had something of a “eureka moment” (a moment of inspiration) when everything starts to click and come together.
If you are having a “eureka moment,” you sound “crazy” to other people, because they do not yet understand what is going through your mind. OTOH, in the midst of a “eureka moment,” everything makes a lot more sense to the person who is experiencing it.
“Occidental Dissent” has always been a very interesting place to watch and hang out for anyone. There are a lot of good ideas debated here. We read all kind of material, analyze all kinds of different ideas, consider ideas, come up with our own ideas.
You can learn a lot here. Even how to preach if you have been following us lately. We have been slowly building a “new paradigm” or trying to at least do that for 10 years now.
How much time and money has been spent trying to build the new paradigm? It is incalculable.
Similarly, if you watch what is going on at other websites (or just watch television), you can learn a lot about what people are thinking, feeling, and saying. You can see what is on their minds and consider it from your own point of view.
Anyway, over the course of the past ten years we have been engaged in a project of “rewriting” the world around us, which for some reason intuitively didn’t seem to make any sense. Just thinking about it and trying to understand it in a better way.
So, it is time to start writing the book now. I have got a theory now. I have got the message. I know how to harmlessly deliver the message. It is time to write a creative book for the blogosphere.
“White Nationalism” (or whatever you want to call it now) was the ultimate pro bono job, a labor of love for a non-profit, which in the bizarre world of BRA no one ever had any incentive to invest in.
In BRA, you invested in U.S. Treasury bonds, worked for Washington’s worldwide plantation, were ruined by a “subprime mortgage,” not for the small town where you happen to live and the people who live there – as strange as it sounds, your own cousin was worth less than a CDO Squared.
How many years do you suppose the League of the South and the Council of Conservative Citizens have invested in waging a Crusade against the Triumph of Abraham Lincoln in 1865? We have been fighting the Civil War in our minds since 1865.
I didn’t read all those columns, argue with all those people, read all those books, go to all those conferences, drive across the South to look at things from my own perspective, analyze all that damn material, and waste this much of my time … not to try to make some sense of it all.
It was like looking at pieces of evidence from the perspective of a detective trying to solve a mystery. Why does our world look like this? That was always the most compelling question.
I think I can explain it now … calmly, this time! But before I do that, I will enjoy myself, eat some grapes, and take a small (and much needed) vacation to rest.
Note: Nietzsche went crazy, but I am perfectly fine, almost clairvoyant even. If you think I sound crazy, just listen to Joe Biden.
This is a good movie:
In this movie, Luther goes to Rome and returns to Germany. He clearly knows that he is onto something really important. He has seen something about Rome that is very disturbing and intuitively understands that a correction is needed.
Anyone who drives through the ruins of large parts of the United States, especially in the American South, also sees something disturbing. Something is not working here. It could work if everyone had a “grand bargain” and agreed to get things moving again.
Why do I like this movie? I see it as a metaphor that is very similar to what we are doing here. Aren’t we trying to convert people to our point of view? Restore sense and morality? Aren’t we like fighting for justice in our own way? Working on a problem like the monks of Middle Ages? Wrestling with our angels and demons?
Anyone who thinks that what I am saying doesn’t make any sense just ought to do an audit of Washington and Wall Street. I’ve never ripped anyone off or sent anyone overseas to die in a stupid war.
Does it make any sense at all to work for the Federal Reserve? Conform to BRA’s moral voice on television? Only a true “maniac” would do that!
