We are, in case you haven't noticed, in the midst of World War(s) Three, also known as the U.S. empire's War On Terra. As the New World (dis)Order wages perpetual war on many fronts, those few of us who actively oppose it must do likewise. Of course we all know that there is fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and dozens of other lands, but those are not the war fronts to which I refer.

The home front, back here in the Peoples Republic of Canada and the USSA, behind the lines of the aggression, is a major "theatre" of statist war against humanity. State terrorism at the airports and in the streets must be resisted and opposed before large numbers of the "politically incorrect" are rounded up at Taser-point and herded into concentration camps to be "corrected".

But even that is not the battle front to which I would rally the troops today; rather it is the cultural front which must not be neglected or abandoned to the enemy. Believe me too, that culture in all its manifestations plays a key role in the struggle of ideas. Back in the '60s, that maniac Mao Tse-Tung launched his "Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution" in an attempt to destroy thousands of years of history and culture so that the Chinese people could the more readily be brainwashed to embrace "Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-Tung Thought". He came close to succeeding, too, but mortality intervened to give the Chinese people a chance to preserve their culture and sanity.

In North America, the owners of the MSM (Main Sewer Media) are the same lovely folks who own the politicians. Don't take my word for it; check the names on the lists of CEOs of the military/industrial/congressional complex and the film, television, radio and print media versus the names of the bigwigs who bankroll the DemRep Party and the various toadies of the Canadian state. It's the same old Trilateral/Bllderberg/Club-of-Rome gangsters every time, with minor variations.

So what does this mean? It means that the things which Faux News and the CBC and Hollywood and the Idiot Box want us to think and believe comprise the world view which the imperial State desires us proles to embrace. We can effectively counter their culture revolutions with what the statists fearfully labelled "the counter culture" back in the 1960s.

No, I'm not suggesting that you fry your brains on LSD and grass and hash and crack and smack and all the rest of that poisonous rot; what I am suggesting is that you think about the values behind everything that the dominant culture is promoting. If you analyse those things effectively, and you endorse the cause of peace and liberty, you will then abandon and oppose those cornerstones of the imperial culture. And what are those "values"?—everything that is pushed in music, clothing, hair styles, personal habits, education and recreation.

The brainless illiterate jabbering of rap/hip-hop and the pointless shrieking of "heavy metal" are the destructive opposites of the contemplative and challenging music of the blues, jazz, folk and (some) rock 'n' roll. [George Harrison summed up the contribution of the Beatles as, "We were just saying that it's alright to have a little fun and that the government doesn't own you." Serious sedition, man.] Don't listen to or purchase crap that pretends to be "music".

Despite the occasional good that sneaks through onto the vast wasteland of network television, the damned glass boob just rots brains while it ruins eyesight. It renders the watcher a passive absorber of moods and attitudes delivered in a manner guaranteed to programme Pavlovian responses to various stimuli. Think that this doesn't happen to you because you only watch "the good stuff" and "I'm too smart to be brainwashed," do you? Then try going without it for six months and see what it looks like to you after that. The Tube works on you and it works against you. Turn the damned thing off, then throw it out, amigo.

Get your children out of the government schools and into good private schools or, better yet, home school them. I know that this is difficult, expensive and time consuming, but if you didn't want difficult, expensive and time consuming things in your life, then why the heck did you have children?! And what and who is truly more important than your children? Do you really trust the God damned state to properly educate them? Save your children from the state's lying agitprop.

Quit watching and supporting "team" sports; they promote the values of fascism, communism and every other form of totalitarianism. [See my article from 2004: "To Hell With Football "] Don't wear the silly sweatshirts that advertise these fascist circuses, don't wave their pennants, and don't go out to the ball park. Take up an athletic exercise instead. Who knows, you might find swimming to be more beneficial than parking your blubber and drinking beer while watching two gangs of millionaire idiots chase a ball.

And men, if you really want to try to be men and not little statist robots, quit cutting your hear short; it's the preferred hairstyle of imperialists and mass murderers throughout history. Although the imperial Romans called the Celts and Germans and Norsemen "barbarians", it was the short-haired legions and their Senatorial masters who committed the mass atrocities of "classical" times.

Why, truly, would a thinking man want to look like Hitler, Stalin, Roosevelt, Churchill, Mussolini, Tojo, Chairman Mao, Bubba Clinton, the Bushes and every other statist scumbag in history rather than men like the Vikings, the Commanches, Samson, and Jesus Christ?!? The "establishment" went crazy in the 60s because a generation quit wearing neckties and sack suits and grew mustaches and beards and long hair—we looked like men, not automatons, and that was a direct threat to the State. And it knew it, and sent its armed forces to harass us.

That damned necktie says, loudly and clearly, "I kiss as to the State; I will 'go along to get along', and I am happy to give up any pretence of individualism in exchange for a mortgage, an iPod and a cell phone." Gee, what a deal. On the other hand, long hair and unconventional clothing says, "The State doesn't own me and it can kiss my ass." A crude sentiment, I admit, but an ennobling one none the less.

In the end, the position you take in the culture war is your decision. It is you who has to decide what the price of your soul is, and what value you place on...

Peace and Liberty.
