Crop Failure

This video got me to thinking about young people, about the older generation. Mostly the parents and grandparents of my generation. I feel strange saying young people as I myself am not that old; this is my twenty-fourth year. I was younger still when I started writing here on Vinland Shore, but I don’t feel that my mind has changed on this subject. It’s plain and correct that we’ve had a generation of parents who have lived for the moment. They lived for the moment because it was known their lack of efforts would cause the inevitable collapse of the economy. They lived for the moment because it was ‘liberating’ but most importantly they ‘lived for the moment’ because it was easy.

How then are we able to raise the spirit of the youth? They themselves were raised by a generation that taught them to live for today? Just because something bad will inevitably happen, throw away any preparation, any planning, any semblance of structure or effort away because it’s essentially, to them “not worth the effort”. Bad things will happen, crops will fail, a fox will get your chickens or your roof might leak, you didn’t cut enough firewood for the winter. However rather than prepare they would prefer to sit in brief luxury even if it means inevitable destruction than face one detestable moment of discomfort?

“The secret of realizing the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment of existence is: to live dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius! Send your ships out into uncharted seas! Live in conflict with your equals and with yourselves! Be robbers and ravages as soon as you can not be rulers and owners, you men of knowledge! The time will soon past when you could be content to live concealed int he woods like timid deer!”

– Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

It’s an absolute disregard for any kind of strength of character. For any type of strength at all; these are the people who raised the current generation. This lackadaisical approach to life; apathy has been disguised as virtuous by our parent generation. Our nations aren’t poor, and we have much wealth in people however…There has never been more poverty of character than there is currently, and that’s exactly what it is! The seeds that they have sown with this ideology has created a generation not only weak in practical skills, but weak in spirit as well. A generation of anarchists, and directionless idealist youth.

They have no idea what to fight against so, they will revolt in any way that will give them respect and attention. In today’s media its beneficial to be what amounts essentially a suicidal level of altruism. That is the reaping of our parent generations crop, a world of self-centered communists. Blogging on their Apple computers, and drinking fair-trade coffee. Slapping each-other on the back for disowning, tramping on the works of their ancestors, spitting on the ground there forefathers bled and died on and giving it away. When the inevitable economic collapse does arrive, when not if there won’t be enough paper in their propaganda bound university textbooks to keep them warm on the night.

The New Renaissance

Perhaps Renaissance is not the first term, imagine if you will with ever synonym you wish. Resurgence, revival, renewal, what ever you desire its name be…it is a new dawn. If you’ve at all been aware of recent events, and I should not need to explain my meaning. We’ve come to an apex; a culmination of years of trial to have the message heard. Although, refusing to accept what we would offer in kindness, and out of the goodness of our hearts and minds. After a long enough time people would begin to wake up, and slowly, inevitably it is happening.

The events are unfolding in such a manner that it cannot possibly be ignored any longer. Perhaps we have contributed with wisdom, if people would listen. Perhaps my words have gone unread by only those who are eager and fascinated to see. Now it’s as a clap of thunder, the clouds have rolled back, the river bed has dried revealing the bottom to everyone who could stand at those banks. Only the willfully blind could still stand in ignorance to the truth we have known all along.

I don’t know if the world is ready, but I am ready. For all the brothers and sisters of Europa everywhere; to be together and stand shoulder to shoulder against what can no longer be ignored. I have found more happiness recently than I have in many months, I am glad to be here.
