Partisan. The word conjures up images of blind politics, cheering for the red or blue team and a decidedly shallow level of critical thinking. The historical meaning relates more to a group of light troops, particularly those behind enemy lines. Partisans strove against a numerically superior force, often one occupying their home or country, attempting to disrupt the status quo and prevent a foreign entity from exerting their will. We chose this word purposefully.
The true difficulty of living in the United States today is not the political paradigm. Most of our readership would strenuously disagree with the progressive political goals and worldview. A growing number also see problems with the conservatives, chief among them being the inability to conserve anything of cultural worth. The country and our society has changed immensely in the last decade and is nearly unrecognizable from the one most of us grew up in. Western man now exists in a country with foreign values, a foreign language, and a foreign way of life.
Most of you wouldn’t be here if the problems occurring in this nation were not self-evident. The answer lies in not describing the problems, or attributing them to a third-party, even if the blame is deserved, but in reforming our own lives and actions. The answer lies in a return to the foundation of what made Western Civilization peerless among recorded history. A return to reason, a rejection of post-modernism and relativism, a striving toward mastery of the body, mind and natural world. Virtues that no longer have a place in our society but inspired men to kill and die, such antiquated beliefs as family and things we hold sacred. The belief that some things should not have a price, some things should be held as sacrosanct. Frankly, a reactionary position that emanates from the core of who we are as a person, and what we believe. A position outnumbered, mocked as outmoded, and maligned by those who get their beliefs from celebrities and are content to repeat the catchphrase of the week. In a word, partisans.
In a society where the depth of one’s belief in liberty is often measured in rallies attended, volume of gear worn, and attention gained, instead of self-sufficiency, independence, and the ability to think, we posit that there is much that’s been lost in translation. The ability to choose the right communications setup is important, as is learning to proficiently defend yourself with a variety of weapons. Providing for your family in a host of disaster and/or grid-down scenarios is crucial; primitive skills, planting and harvesting, raising livestock, and designing a natural medicine cabinet are also all extremely important.
All of these things, however, mean nothing if you cannot reason. Savages may have liberty, yet that does not make a civilization. Collecting the information, parsing its credibility and its relevance, evaluating its use, and incorporating it into your belief system or next actions is a skill set that underpins all else. It requires a thirst for truth, and a personal requirement to let that truth lead where it will. The things that make up our culture are being lost, and if we do not fight to preserve them, then we will be lost as well.
This site is for those who seek truth, who are willing to learn the skills they do not have, and who understand that western civilization begins and ends at home. Our beliefs work. Our positions create civilizations. Join us.
