But I’m here to tell ya, there’s something else. What makes a place individually or collectively yours is having the capacity to defend it from encroachment. Man’s animal impetus to expand his range is never halted by sweet pieties in prose, but the competence and determination of opposing men. And those absent that must rely on historians to eulogize their virtue. As the gulled lose their societies to the grasping, there will be many mile-markers in the transition. Diversifying portraiture on currency being just one example. One much more robust is presently on display in Greece as seen in this video.
In it, stalled foreign migrants congregate on the highway before a Greek border post trying to walk in through the out door. With their bellies filled by white leftist collaborators, they commence an admirably audacious trolling campaign by establishing a parallel border checkpoint in front of the formal Greek position. Through this they stop and harass legitimate traffic. In one scene, a migrant foreman interrogates a trucker bound with fruit for Sweden. Deeming his business insufficient to warrant a pass, the delivery is rejected and sent back where it came. Did this de facto border captain not like apples? Maybe he’s just like his mother, she’s never satisfied.
The point, if one is so dull to not discern, is that if they can’t get to Merkelville, then no one else can either. This gambit relying primarilly on the goodwill of motorists to find their brake pedals before painting the asphalt with entrails. And sometimes in all the excitement a person accidentally stands on the accelerator instead. I guess they should have known by the way you swerved your car sideways, that it wouldn’t last.
Also, one presumes that Greece still fields an armed forces whose tactical training extends beyond ladeling soup to foreigners. What’s black and brown and looks great on an infantry blockade? Doberman pinschers. Of course this action would have generated media apoplexy with so many numinous “refugees” trying to run from the destruction. But you know I wouldn’t even care.
And eventually neither will the people of Europe. You will defend your habitat or lose it to those who will do so in your stead. That is the nature of man, and there’s no particular sign it’s more compatible with. But I doubt many here still require this advice. And besides, I never wanted to be your weekend blogger.
