In my first dissemination I attempted to enkindle in others the spirit from which this project has been inspired. In this second supplementary statement I plan to take a moment to reveal a bit more of my intention and direction with these writings as well as address why it is that I chose for Donnybrook Farm to host them.
Our future success relies heavily on the ideologies and sacred customs that exist within rural cultures, yet we are so easily caught up in the revolutionary idealism which precipitates war that we tend to overlook some of the crucial factors that will sustain us throughout the volatile times which lie directly ahead of us.
When the towers finally crumble we won’t all be able to ride out of the clouds of dust on the backs of roaring motorcycles. All of us may fantasize from time to time about that being our role but far more people adopt that aesthetic than are capable of or willing to actually maintain that lifestyle.
Within our network of oracles and warriors we must ensure that there are those who are actively taking the steps necessary that will continue to facilitate our movement after the fall. This can begin with something as simple as cultivating relationships within rural communities and gaining familiarity with vast swaths of their surrounding lands and territories, then evolving into not just familiarity with the access points and terrain but also with its inherent soil types and naturally occurring flora.
The idea of taking an active and focused role as agricultural providers does not insinuate that we do not need to be just as strong and well trained as our marauders, in fact we must take steps to be even more capable and diverse as we will not only be called upon to defend our lands, but also care after, sustain, train, and protect our settled peoples. Our entire lives must be training and there must be no mundane moments within it; we should hold ourselves to the same standards as the rovers and then some.
We may count on our allied band of nomads to rally to our side when our tribal boundaries are in danger of being challenged by outsiders or when it becomes time for us to expand our territory, but make no mistake that they will be as equally reliant on us as we are of them. Apart from some exceptionally self-sufficient packs of a few here and there, truly thriving tribes must have places of settlement.
We must be capable of growing enough food for all while maintaining and defending access to safe drinking water as well as land dedicated not only to farming but also for training and ritual. Even this accounts for only a small portion of the things we must make available to all members of our tribe and its allies which should also include things such as material for various repairs, medical aid, fuel, wood, weaponry, and even some recreational comforts.
Most importantly we must maintain an impenetrable safe haven for all wives and children who will have their own tasks and responsibilities. Make no mistake that there will not be room for weak men when it comes to safeguarding our legacies, nor will there be room for incapable or mercurial women when it comes time for them to take up defense and command responsibilities as we hunt, guard, and survey our lands.
These plantations and villages located around the continent will create the network through which all things will move. It will be where culture again will take root into the land, where meaningful trade will be established between points, where sustenance and protection will be found for our allies; it is where the “we’re building our own” becomes manifested as an actual reality.
Donnybrook Farm holds an intimate understanding of all of this. I know this to be true from face to face communications with several of the operatives who wave their banner. All of those involved have both met and then exceeded my expectations.
In the coming months I will release more volumes of “From the Towers of the Condor” which will more properly expand on statements I’ve made in the first volume as well as the things that I’ve insinuated here. Within the coming transmissions there are plans to communicate possible strategies for settlement and survival from day one through year one, timelines for successful escape for operatives who find themselves imprisoned within the grey concrete of cities during the final call, theoretical scenarios will be explored, tactics will be offered with alternatives, and sacred cattle will be slaughtered.
The only available way to make contact to me is through Donnybrook Farm. The messages are read and if any request for clarification or further communication is found to be valid, it will be forwarded to me and I will answer. The name of the one seeking clarification is never revealed to me, I believe this keeps conversations brief, honest, and free of distraction.
Although on the surface we all subscribe to a seemingly similar ethos and may share many similar group affiliations as well as personal associations, make no mistake that what is coming is coming fast and hard and is very real and the sides aren’t truly picked until the first brick hits the ground.
I hope to find you with us.
