Arky over on DoverCat recently authored a thread on which I posted that a solution to his dilemma of how to exist within Tyranus Victorianus might be to declare the creation of a parallel state called Free Victoria, and state that as citizens of the same, you will acknowledge the present institutions and structures (of T.V.) only until newer, more functional ones can be born in FreeVic.
I can only guess that many readers will have thought I was joking, and that in any case, a secession would be impractical for any number of reasons.
What if Free Victoria (or any other, similar, entity) did not constitute a physical space, but was largely conceptual? Yes, of course it would be ideal to have a patch of land, whack up a fence, and spend our days herding and milking kumbayas, in between drum circles and the occasional ritual sacrifice of a trespasser.
Perhaps we might consider what IS possible, though: A ‘Free State’ initially in the abstract?
I’ve stated previously that ‘we’ (meaning conservatism in a broad sense) are in a competition for influence. Simply gaining the attention of the general population who are hard-wired into the feral media grid, is, as many here have written, an enormous challenge. If we can gain their attention though, that of the decision makers will – to some degree – follow.
Declaring a Free State of XYZ, and presenting it quite seriously, could be a means of achieving this, though we would have to be prepared to follow it up.
Is this possible?
