Whither Skyrim?

larpThe past several weeks have seen harsh debate and a sharp divide among our inner circle.  The issue? Secession.  In particular,  whether or not the United States as a nation is something worth maintaining.  This may come as a surprise to some: the blog’s generally positive attitude regarding the United States is a minority view in our circle.

Dissent with the current trajectory has been bubbling for months: neologisms like “larping” and “Skyrimist” have not helped matters.  Podcast 2 finally led to emotions boiling over.  The result hasn’t been pretty.

Discussions very quickly degenerated, criticisms became personal in nature.  A lot of harsh words were said;  I certainly spoke my fair share.  Several long time members (including the fellow who personally brought me into TRS) have gone so far as to actually sever ties.  I expect things to remain tense for a while.

I don’t expect a blog post to magically mend fences.  That said, I do feel this topic deserves a more even-keeled appraisal than what has been offered on the blog so far.  So in contrast I will begin by presenting four allowances on the issue.  The Secession Concessions, so to speak.

Bulbasaur’s Modest Proposal

LifeIt is indeed a melancholy object for one to consider the topic of abortion in these “United” States. Hundreds of years trading blood and lives in the name of progress (not always a fair trade), yet still we drag along the flotsam of a past best left forgotten.

A strong minority, comprising tens of millions of our “fellow citizens,” still harbor misplaced nostalgia for a time when a woman had no say in whether or not she must endure the presence of a parasitic life-form within her own person.

Consider it: our female population, living the honest, equal, and consumptive existence guaranteed to all Americans (as well as some others), would instead be relegated to mere breed stock for the nation. Such thinking is a barbarous relic, anathema to any true American. I sometimes wonder if these Fox News-types sing the Horst Wessel Lied when we’re not paying attention. Susan B. Anthony, bless her, must be spinning in her grave.

Après Paul, Le Déluge

Doom

Translation: After (Ron) Paul, Dildos.

Ron Paul, our generation’s William Jennings Bryan, has largely run his course. The man who for decades bravely griefed Congress and disrupted Republican Primaries, now talks shit about dead people on twitter. He who lives by the troll dies by the troll, I suppose.

Following his not-so-stellar progress in 2010-11, these actions certainly don’t surprise me; here was a man ultimately less interested in cultivating a meaningful counter-narrative, and more interested in pissing people off before collecting his Congressional pension.
