Radicals/Conservatives


"The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out, the conservative adopts them."
          ~ Mark Twain, 'Notebooks and Journals', 1898

  1. Conservative is a corrupted term, it has been overwhelmed by special interest money whose special interest is to conserve their fortunes.

    Read all the Greek philosophers, get a deep drink of the "pagan" thinkers, clean of narrative manipulation.

    Radicals are lost in the fear and failure of Existential dread. They seek the to recreate the void, the abyss, that black nothing before time was created.
