A New Year: A Cusp of Perception, Action and Responsibility

Welcome to the next blog generation of the Novacadia Alliance. It is time to shed the previous skin. Rebirth, regeneration, continued evolution (re-evolution?) are as much part-and-parcel of an idea/notion as these dynamics are part-and-parcel of an individual’s growth/journey. It’s a good day to be a secessionist.

I ask for some time to acquaint myself with WordPress features. Until such time as the transition is completed and the blog tweaked accordingly (I am not much of a propeller head), one will have to put up with the generic start-up features.

For the time being, I would think that the Mission Statement of this blog could require some serious thought. The philosophical and political bullets cover a lot of turf.

We are entering a new chapter. It is, and crumbles, all around us. We have entered onto the depletion slope of Hubbert’s Peak. We have entered a problem for which there is no seeming solution. We are being taught that entropy reigns supreme.

This is very serious ground upon which we embark as individuals, communities, regions and nations. It is stark ground with little room for mistakes. For those students of Sun Tzu, they will recognize the political challenges before us as being obstacles on Death Ground. When crossing the river to Death Ground (it could be the Rubicon), upon arrival boats and cooking utensils are destroyed. The army either survives and prospers on the assets of its adversary, or it perishes.

So there is no turning back. Not that there ever was, but now during these initial stages of full-spectrum empire meltdown the latter non-option just becomes that much more evident. The latent becomes concrete. Secession becomes a realistic option. It is programmed into the collapse. It is secession by default.

The situation morphs away from intellectual conjecture, redundant navel-gazing and ballyhooed hand-wringing. It becomes real. It forces one to deal with the consequences of both wise and foolish decisions.
