Mission and Introduction (Please read first.)

(Note: As of March 1, 2009, a Blogger blog with a more focused mandate and audience, will run parallel to the Novacadia Alliance WordPress blog. The Blogger blog is The Secessionist Mycelium [thanks to eyeballs]. The two different platforms have different features, both of which need to be taken advantage of. Post content is duplicated in each. Whichever suits your fancy.)

The purpose of this blog is to generate dialogue and action towards the perception, acknowledgement and ownership of:

  • in general, the advent of the age of Post-Peak Oil
  • in general, the collapse of industrial civilization within the global context of a Post-Peak Oil world
  • in general, the systemic and entropic implosion of the industrial nation-state
  • in particular, the secessionist designation of Novacadia as one of several new eco-states to be grafted onto the continent of North America

(The regional designation of Novacadia conditionally consists of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.) To view the Mission Statement of the Novacadia Alliance, please visit www.novacadia.org. For an introduction to the NAmerican secessionist movement, please visit The Middlebury Institute.

You will notice that there are a few categories for which there are no, or few, posts, i.e. 9/11 Truth and North American Union. Consider these to be sign posts; they are part of the secessionist context. You know how to use the thing in front of you, so I suggest you use it. If anyone is really interested in making the connection between the events of 9/11 and Peak Oil, I suggest you read Crossing the Rubicon, by Michael C. Ruppert. Also, a meta-commentary on these posts is my own position paper, Post-Peak Oil and NAmerican Regional Secession, presented at the Third North American Secessionist Convention.

Quality over quantity is not only a principled target for this blog, it is all I have time for. The last thing you need to read is more useless noise and shit bubbling out of Babbleon, i.e. the blogoshpere. I live a Post-Peak Oil life style; I own it; I prepare for the meltdown on a daily basis. This Peak Oil message is not coming to you from the delusional and hypocritical comfort of a suburban work station with a bowl of Frito-Lays in front of my face.

In 2001, I moved from here on the West Coast/Cascadia…

…to here on the East Coast/Novacadia. In 2006, I moved from here…

…to here.

My time is scarce and it is valuable. I loathe wasting it and having it wasted for me. For the most part, I am a recluse widower with four cats. Choosing to break away from a 20-year hiatus from political invovlement was not done without some consideration. Besides prepping for a PPO existence, I run a very small and very marginal business. My corporate daze are long behind me. On Libertarian principle, I am not a grant slut. I create my physical and spiritual existence on a daily basis. That which feeds me has priority.

If nothing else, hopefully this blog points you in the right direction. And yes, there is right and wrong in this life. Nothing happens in the shade of grey…nothing.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Hi,

    I post on FTW 2 as “agape wins”, I admire where you are in your life, if you can manage to survive the turmoil which we all face, your outlook & preparation gives you a head
    start, you will be a foundation of the future! Your response to Kamilov was right on, I hope others respond also, it’s about selfishness, Ego, & Greed, which transcends any form of government (control), which motivates some to take advantage of others.

    Money works the same in Russia as anywhere else, we have exceeded peak on livability everywhere, the only escape would be to move in with the primitives, except they would not except us, the attempt would just insure your demise.
    Knowledgeable people acting reasonable will limit the insanity I see ahead and thereby reduce the die off. sonofafarmer is right, you will find little conformation on the internet, ask yourself where our reserves went, & why they were reduced to almost nothing, was it greed, or to make up shortages no one would admit to? Question everything those in control tell you. I, in my Retail business can already see shortages in grains, & reduced quality in
    the fresh produce we receive! The forecaster’s will not be pinned down, and off the record are quite negative, there is a lot of propaganda being spread.

  2. Hi Sebastian!
    I had been meaning to check this out for a while now, sorry for taking so long to get to it!
    Just wanted to comment on your statement:

    “If nothing else, hopefully this blog points you in the right direction. And yes, there is right and wrong in this life. Nothing happens in the shade of grey…nothing.”

    I believe you, that In your perspective, there is only black and white. I am also quite impressed that you have had the time to give enough thought to everything, to be so sure of that! Correct me if I’m wrong, but this statement also seems to imply that a certain individuals blacks and whites, or rights and wrongs are the supreme truths of the universe. I sure would like to meet this person!
    EVERYONE has their blacks and whites and rights and wrongs, and they genuinely believe in those perspectives. These perspectives often differ between individuals. I think it is in those differences of opinions that the blacks and whites make gray. After all, who is right and who is wrong? Who is the supreme guardian of truth? Through this logic I purpose that the only place uncompromising truth (black and white) can exist is in the consciousness of the individual. Beyond the individual, in the realm of the collective, only gray can exist!

  3. Yo, NB, long time no hear!!!

    For myself, I did all the both/and, mind/body split, quantum physics spirituality, yadda yadda yadda 25 years or so ago. And again speaking for myself only, relative to my own awakening (and I’ve never been to a church service of any denomination in my life), it is all head shit…very fancy and insightful head shit mind you, but head shit all the same. Yes, all the latter is still there if one wishes to pursue it, but it is there as a sub-system of Black-White. Black-White is the meta-system, if you will. Any decision to act has only two options: yes or no. “Maybe” i.e. grey, doesn’t count. Nothing happens at “safe.” The only thing to be gained from sitting on the fence are splinters up one’s asshole. (Cute motto, eh? My own.)

    Speaking of, things just seem to be getting stupider and stupider over at Ruppert’s place. The Oil Drum has the propeller-heads, Savinar has got the youngin’s with his forum, so I was always under the impression that FTW had some sort of political agenda to serve by folks with their heads screwed on relatively straight. This would hark back to mention of the necessity of creating a purposeful “cadre” in Rubicon…not that a cadre in cyberland is going to accomplish much. And here is Orkin letting some of the oddest shit clear! And Ruppert is off somewhere busy crooning!

    What’s appropriate here? Wake me when the revolution’s over? LOLOL
