Message from Flint in Nice Respectable People Group #general
My mom's mom was definitely aristocracy, but most of the rest of my family was lower class and rose up, or was already middle class for generations
My great grandfather and his family were driven from Missouri into Mexico. We were refugees.
There was a period of US history where land was owned by the greatest proportion of the population in the middle part of last century, but that proportion is rapidly shrinking, and will shrink even greater when the bubble pops and property values plummet
All I want in life is to be a land owner
Well not all but...
I’ve been saving for about 80 acres
Take it before they take it all for themselves
There’s liberation in owning land.
A privacy I’ve never had being a renter my whole life
I feel like land ownership especially in rural america is a sign of aristocracy.
I used to believe all the myths about the South being open and free and people hunting and the poor fishing
You're lucky you are not in the west. The western half of the US is mostly owned by the federal government. That's why we have so many wildfires. 90% of the California wildfires are started on federally managed land.
Turns out everywhere is owned and to hunt you have to pay a lease or find the owner of the land
I'm from out west originally, that's why I had a false impression of the South
@Flint yeah crazy it's almost like the top 2% of the earners in this country are trying to create a soft Serfdom
At least real Feudalism had some sense of community
They're gonna get got by the commies if they keep it up.
They wonder why so many debt laden students are reading about the Oct Revolution
I only care because the 1% is going to convince the poor whites to defend them from the commies
I wonder why the Far Right is so Authoritarian? Is it because of the fact that so many people came from Libertarianism, and it's a Reactionary move? Is it because of Moldbug's early influence?
Fascism is Capitalism on it's death bed, they say
I don't know how true that is, but it's true enough to look into
I think the authoritarianism in me comes from knowing that people on their own don't do what is beneficial to the whole.
There's absolutely some truth in it
I gotta go too
