06MAY2018 – OCF Update

This week I’ll finish up reading Larry Correia’s “Monster Hunter Seige” and post a review.  The hard cover version came out back in July but I buy the paperback for convenience and that version just got issued.  The site has been a little slow because I’m putting together a sort of “best of” post on my southwest landscape trip for a link that Captain Capitalism is providing me and it’s a time-consuming endeavor.  It’s like eleven hundred files and I’m still learning how to use Capture One.  So bear with me.  That post should be pretty interesting for the photo enthusiasts.  As I mentioned earlier I’ll get those rental lenses on Friday the 11th and that will spawn some interesting posts on the viability of using Sigma lenses with Canon mount on the Sony A7 cameras.  That may be interesting to Canon shooters with Sigma glass who have been interested in switching to Sony and anyone who is still constrained by Sony’s telephoto and macro lens choices.

The other thing I am interested in writing about is the direction of right wing movement.  I am trying to formulate my own particular spin on what makes sense going forward.  There is a lot of confusion and undirected anger that doesn’t seem to be producing much in the way of results.  And there seems to be a certain amount of opportunism and charlatanism that makes it difficult to know what is solid and worthwhile.  Sometimes it seems that several people have each latched onto a different piece of the puzzle needed to reform the current situation but like the blind men and the elephant they only “see” a small part of the reality and are missing the big picture.  And because of that, they diagnose that small part of the problem and their solution doesn’t address the broader situation.  And some of the “wise men” are too extreme.  They would throw out the baby with the bath water.  The more I think about solutions for the social disintegration the more I think that restoring the common-sense institutions we used to have is the solution.  Stopping unlimited immigration is neither impossible nor radical.  Restoring respect for the traditions and institutions of our forefathers is important and relatively straight forward.  And replacing social justice and reverse discrimination with actual justice is so rational that it shouldn’t even require explanation.  I think some of the emphasis on race reality is a response to the absurdity that occurs when racial and sexual protectionism and intersectionality tactics are used to attack the American white middle and working classes.  If you eliminate these irritants then the rules of American society should be competent to allow different types of people to function relatively harmoniously.  Anyway, that is what I’m starting to think.  I’m definitely interested in other opinions.  And I read around to hear what other people are coming up with.  For instance I’m going to read Gregory Cochran’s “The 10,000 Year Explosion: How Civilization Accelerated Human Evolution” and David Reich’s “Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past” to see if there’s anything in biology that rules out my optimism for a functional multi-ethnic America.

And finally, I’d love to get more feedback from the readers.  Even if it’s negative.  It’s useful to know what you like and what you don’t.  Or even to just say hi.  It’s definitely appreciated and part of why I made this site.  I am interested in hearing other points of view.  And if you find something interesting on-line pass along the link.

Thanks very much, sincerely, for asking, and I would very much like to express a perspective which gets almost no good honest notice. Just to be frank I will use myself as a reference, but please make no mistake I am not a singular aspect here, but a cold anger plurality at that. I am legion, and a very silent one to boot, as I suspect due to everything from normalcy bias to a media which does everything within its power to disenfranchise, marginalize, villianize, and sully at every chance such Americans as myself. No big deal really in the… Read more »

Well thank you most kindly for the forum, and this still great Republic, for a venue to express openly, at least for now, what I firmly contend is the state of mind and spirit of possibly millions of us so called Deplorable’s. There’s no time for mincing words. Straight talk among peers of us Men of The West is warranted. Appreciate you for saying so many understand. I really look forward to the day we become united against tyranny as a brotherhood. In someways that possibility of unity and solidarity seems very much possible, increasingly so. Its not very nice… Read more »

Yeah, thats for sure. Having an entire media complex, superbly funded & backed by elements if the 1%, regardless of its corrupt nature, is still a huge force multiplier. The glitz and glamor, professional looking broadcasts, the carrot and the stick elements, the relentless parroting the same lies and narratives, it is difficult to not be effected. The only right thing is to stop watching and listening. Look at it from afar, while taking in a broad spectrum of the alt-media and its grass roots alt-tech. Strategic view with careful considerate attention to details in order not to get bogged… Read more »
