New Beginnings...

When I started this blog, I was angry and I was motivated.
Hence why I called this blog Wrath of Mjolnir. I suppose I am still angry, but the edge has been tempered somewhat over the years.

I renamed the blog to reflect this.I am also going to try and post regularly again.
The last couple of years have not been conducive to blogging for me and although I try to keep up on the other regular reads in the blogosphere, I just haven't felt like putting fingers to keyboard all that often.

And Facebook. The slow demise of society. It sucks you in.
I am making a conscious effort to keep Facebook time to an absolute minimum.

So, what's changed? Alot actually.

I'm newly single again, well, relatively speaking, it's been a little over a month.
At times I wish I weren't, but I can say with the utmost sincerity that I am far less stressed out now.
And that is a good thing.
I'm not saying I wouldn't like some companionship, but I have learned, the hard way as usual, what I don't want. I also learned a valuable lesson from a different source. Despite being approached by an amazing woman with a very interesting story, I made myself too available and I was obviously a bit overeager to get to know her more. Crash and burn. I do that well.
But in hindsight, it was probably for the best. I need to roam solo for awhile. I know I need to.

My outlook on the world has changed drastically over the last few years. The illusion of freedom is very convincing to so many people. Once you've seen through it, there is no going back. Once you see the truth with wide open eyes, there is no going back to blissful ignorance. Sometimes I wish I could go back to being blind to the evil machinations that constantly surround us. But I can't.

The rot and corruption is so deeply embedded with tendrils creeping their way through all levels of society, it is tough to get anyone to start seeing them for what they are. The fact is, people don't want to hear unpleasant truths, they'd rather believe in pleasant lies. They don't want their perception of reality shattered, they do not want to accept the truth or the inevitable consequences of their willful ignorance. They hope and pray that they will go to their graves peacefully and not have to see or be confronted with the fruits of their ignorance or complacence.

I keep waiting for the inevitable crashing of society. The pendulum must swing back at some point.
It seems it is in the nature of humankind to seek domination, power and control over each other and the environment. I don't understand the will to dominate each other, mastering our environment is something I can understand, but creating a completely artificial environment is not the way to go, in my opinion. It seems there are those who wish to rule, and those who wish to be ruled. Most of humankind appears to fall into one of these two roles. I do not. I simply wish to be left alone. I do not want to rule and I do not want to be ruled. While I don't understand the need of some to lord over their fellow humans, I also do not understand the desire to be told what to do. And I certainly don't like the idea of someone forcing me to do their will at the threat of violence. I don't like being perpetually robbed of the fruits of my labor because I am not responsible enough to know how to best use my own assets. That some criminal enterprise better knows how to spend my money than I do. It's quite obvious they've failed at this time and again, so why do I have to keep paying them?

What does it mean to be free? This is a question that every single person should be asking themselves.
And especially here in the US where freedom is our national mantra. I challenge every person to ask themselves this. And then break down for themselves every violation of their natural rights and freedoms that occurs on a daily basis. Every piece of legislation that passes that supposedly is for our own good... what is the REAL reason it became a law? Why do so many ignore history and allow the same evils that were thrust on our ancestors continue to be thrust upon themselves?

I find it interesting that when men abandon God, they create a new religion and call it government.
Religion is the same regardless of the decorations. I was brought up as a Methodist. I do not subscribe to that ideology. I left the church when I was a teenager. I am thankful to my mother for giving me the choice to go to church or not. I was always a spiritual person and I knew the answers I sought did not lie with one very rigid dogma. I studied many religions and ultimately I concluded that religion was a deadend path. regardless of what it was. All religions whether secular or divine encourage close mindedness and rigidity that is not conducive to learning. Questioning religion is seen as "taboo". The zealots who worship at the altar of government are no different than the zealots who blow themselves up in the name of their religion. Those of us who believe in and seek to exercise our natural rights without doing harm or violence to anyone are seen as dangerous individuals by the clergy of the Government religion. Tax collectors, politicians and law enforcement personnel are all members of the government religious clergy. You must be dependent on them for everything. If you seek to be independent and self-sustaining, you are a threat to their religion and you will be labeled a heretic. The regular congregation that listens to the sermons of lies of the government priests will also see you as dangerous. They are sheep and will warn the shepherd of your presence among them, despite the fact they are more likely to be killed or maimed by the enforcement arm of the religion of government than they are of you. These modern day Knights Templar see themselves as Holy Crusaders defending the realm against the evils of those that would defy religious decree.
You just want to be left alone. But they refuse to leave you alone. they will poke at you and they hope upon hope that you will retaliate, take the bait so they can publicly justify eliminating you.
They will start rumours about you. The public will start to wonder if you really are a witch.
You just want to be left alone. How long before the crusaders swoop down upon you while the congregation looks on a videotapes your ultimate demise?

The dangers of religion. History is rife with examples.
Read history. As much as you can. Lessons abound.

If you're a US citizen, start digging. What you learned in school is what the religious zealots of government want you to know. The truth is much more complicated and not very nice. It's really too bad we had a chance once to have a society of free people and we blew it.

Despite the different ...slightly less angry tone of this blog, I still leave you with the same farewell for now...

Keep your powder dry and die with your boots on.
