What to Do While Waiting for the Apocalypse

Many people on the Right are fond of saying, “What can’t go on, won’t go on.”  And that is true.  But equally true is the law of inertia.  And an enormous body in motion has no choice but to remain in motion until all its momentum is dissipated.  So, for instance, just because a train goes off the track it doesn’t stop moving immediately.  Its forward momentum can go a very long way and do an enormous amount of damage before it comes to rest.

So, it behooves us to use our time on this runaway train called “today” to survive this train wreck as best we can.  And I guess ten different people in ten different parts of the train will decide on ten different strategies to do that.  So, someone in the front of the train might decide that the only way to survive is to jump off.  Someone in the middle might think that bracing himself in his seat is best.  And someone near the back of the train might roll himself up into a ball and get near the floor.  We all use our best judgement to maximize our own situation.  At least we tell ourselves that.

But the point is that we must react to the reality of where we are.  What we can’t do is become hypnotized by the spectacle going on around us.  Being outraged at a train derailing won’t save you from being maimed or killed by the crash.  You have to react to what’s actually happening on the ground and save the outrage for afterward.

So being enraged about the FBI and Joe Biden and the Left’s agenda might be cathartic but in the moment it does nothing to stop the FBI and Joe Biden and the Left’s agenda.  What makes sense is to keep clear of the FBI, undermine the Left’s agenda in every way that you have competence and mock Joe Biden whenever and wherever you can.

The Left was always talking about “The Resistance” while Trump was in office.  Well, that’s what we should be.  It’s our job to remind everyone around us just how lousy a job the Democrats are doing.  And it’s the easiest job in the world.  Even CNN and MSNBC admit that over 60% of the country think Joe Biden is a dishonest, inept, doddering moron who’s driving the country over a cliff.  If that’s not enough of a boost to get our message across nothing ever will be.

So, remember, the train is already off the track.  The crash will go on as long as it goes on.  Your job is to keep you and yours alive until the crash is over.  Then at that point we can start talking about rescuing the survivors from the wreckage and beginning to put our lives back together.  Until that time there’s absolutely nothing that can be done about laying blame on those responsible for the catastrophe or instituting corrections and preventions for the future.

So don’t waste your time on outrage.  And I know that’s easier said than done.  But at least don’t let outrage stop you from doing, in the moment, what needs to be done to survive and hopefully thrive in this crazy world.  Oh, and have a good Wednesday.

That’s the position I take in this current time as one can only affect what is around them. I have no illusions of swaying opinions on a national scale, but if by pointing out the malfeasance and idiocracy of the regime can help to change a few perspectives then I am accomplishing my goal.

As Spengler reflected, “We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way.”
