You Are Not A Pack Animal

This is a deceleration of independence!

This is a refutation of existential nihilism!

This is a rejection of tribalism!

I will not tell you that you are not alone. I would instead advise you to cherish your time alone. Your thoughts are your own. Your values, the best values, are of your own creation. The only thing you can truly call yours in this fractured world, is what you can decide for yourself. You are not your race, religion, creed, gender, what have you. You are not the tribe you were born to. But, if you feel anything like me, you may feel like you have been lied to. I believe you and I have. You are not a pack animal. You have cognition. This is the only similarity between you and I. All else is crude matter. You are you. I am me. Cogito, ergo sum. I think, therefore I AM.

Alright enough pomp and circumstance. This blog is the dawn of this particular iconoclast. I speak for myself and not as a representative of any group, anymore than I would define myself by any single group. I owe allegiance to no one (and neither do you). This blog is an opinion driven screed, like most blogs.

This blog in particular exists because after years of scouring the internet of looking for people with similar viewpoints as do I found absolutely nothing. What I did find was misanthropic wannabe fascists masquerading as humanitarians. Closet racists that prop up cultures like they’re some kind of trophy. Anti-intellectualism marketed as Progressive. Greed sold as a virtue (and at equitable rates!). All the crap “one and only truths” out there makes me want to gag. So before we go further I want to be absolutely clear here as I start tooting my own horn and thumping my own drum.

I do not want to push an agenda onto you the reader. There’s enough of that going on out there. I am willing to share how I view the world, the ideas that appeal and work for me. Conflict, in my observation, comes from one tribe proclaiming the manifest divinity of their tribe over all others. I am here to point out the farce in this mentality. There will be no censorship here. It is my full intent to antagonize the “cherished” beliefs, thought patterns, ideologies, and just plain propaganda of everyone, everywhere.

How much you the reader agree or disagree with me is not important. The number of similar people that find this blog isn’t important either. But if others similar to myself can walk away from this with a deeper appreciation of their individual life, I feel I will be satisfied.

Welcome.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

-Robert A. Heinlein
