Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Anti-Democracy Activist. On this occasion, it is only right for me to offer some words of thanks. Thus: thanks to God Almighty, thanks to WordPress for hosting this column, thanks to my influences (past and present) and my co-conspirators in the growing Neo-Reaction (links to many of whose own homes on the internet can be found in the right sidebar), and most of all thanks to you, the readers, who are always the author’s silent partners in any writing endeavor. Without you, this project would be not so much impossible as (what is worse) pointless.
There’s a scene in the delightful early-90s movie The Commitments in which the struggling band’s saxophonist remarks to his manager that it feels much better to be an unemployed musician than an unemployed pipe fitter. Speaking personally, it feels much better for my “real” work to be that of a radical Neo-Reactionary activist than anything else. Having a secret identity and fighting for faith, tradition, decency, and justice suits me well. I highly recommend it to everybody.
One year and 65 columns on, it’s been a long, slow struggle to build audience and do some genuine good in the world – but you can all be assured that the struggle will continue unabated in the new year.
Straight ahead everybody… straight ahead!
