Covington contra mundum….
The third stage of life is a state or condition of being, wherein an individual begins to live his life for a cause greater than himself.
As most humans live their lives according to selfish principles/selfishness, when they encounter one who lives for a cause, they do not understand it, for they “knew” him in his “before” state when he was as selfish as they are and now he seems to have a case of the “holier than thou’s”, so they fight against him tooth and nail, revealing all his previous lies, hypocricies, his rejection of his then wife and children, his unjust treatment of former friends and comrades, and etc. They see his holier than thouness as an escape from responsibility. His non response to their appeals that he “repent” and address their complaints, just makes them fight more harshly against him in what they see as his crazy conduct. No amount of explanations by him will satisfy his accusers, it just causes them to have more questions/accusations. In this they are like jews. Their misunderstanding of him is actually a gift given to him which is the means of strengthening him even more in his new state. It is a means of hardening him internally, wherein his “face” is set toward a higher goal.
To his accusers – his former friends, family members, colleagues and comrades – he has become mentally unstable at a minimum, or stark raving crackers at a maximum, but he is neither, for he has, as a comrade said here, transended self:http://chechar.wordpress.com/2012/04/27/matt-parrotts-definition-of-metaphysics/
Many friends and comrades see the need for such individuals in our “movement” or for them to rise up from among us, but like most of those still living on the earthly plane of emotionality and selfishness, they join the accusers when one appears. This is because of the prophet principle, which says that when a person appears on the scene who has a “living for a higher cause” viewpoint, he is not recognized in his own house and /or among them who knew him “before”.
By prophet I do not mean someone who necessarily sees the future, but he will focus on the or a future scenario in some way, by writing or speaking about it. He may write about what MAY happen if certain things are not turned around in the country for the better. So…along this line….
A few days ago I had an occasion to visit this site and this particular article wherein a commentor who calls himself UN, as in Uncle Nasty, who according to some of his other comments I’ve read over there from time to time, is a former resident of South Africa. He linked to an article over at OO from 2011 which was a review of some sort, of Harold Covington’s books about the future fictional distopia that this country will be. The article had about 300+ comments of which many were favorable, but some few weren’t, as is in most cases of such threads, they began attacking Covington and got away from discussion of the writer’s article. Anywho…http://irishsavant.blogspot.com/2012/04/tennis-coachs-lament.html.
I don’t know Harold Covington. I seldom visit his site. I have listened to small excerpts of a few of his podcasts. I have not read any of his books, as I am past reading books which tend to get the adrenaline pumping. Most of his accusers were “I knew him wheners”. He did such and such! He called me a liar! I took him to court and won a judgment against him and he took off out of state to avoid the judgement! He still owes me $$$$$$! His own brother says he is____(fill in your own mental defect definition)! He abandoned his own family! He doesn’t like such and such..( a well known name among us)! He accused such and such..(another name of a not so well known), of being a traitor to the cause and being a Fed collaborator! Anyway, you get the gist.
I’m not Harold Covington’s defender. He’s been in this thing of ours much longer than I have. He doesn’t need me as his defender. He can well defend himself if he is so moved as he did so on that comment thread. He and HW(OD) have gone a few rounds I understand, as I assume HW, under another name – “Cass Sunstein”- appeared in the same comment thread as one of his accusers.
When certain of our fellows appear to be…in the present veracular…”polarizers”, or lightening rods or objects of accusations by various ones amongst us, we need to stop and take a breath and ask ourselves what is really going on here. Everyone seems to like and appreciate Kevin McDonald…except for jews of course. Fine. He has his place. Jared Taylor has his place, even though I have been critical of him in the past. There are many others. But the “prophets” are the necessary “fanatics” among us. They keep trying to pull us to come “up” where they are, but most of us hold back out of fear of the consequences if we go up “there”.
Families, jobs, the desire to be liked and approved by our fellows, etc, holds most of us back. Some of us are doing what we can do in our restricted circumstances. Meeting, handing out flyers, creating havoc on left/lib/conserv. comment boards, teaching others how to become more independent from the beast, etc. These are all good. Only a few can go up where they who live for a cause higher than themselves live. But at least, by beginning to see the “symptoms” in or of such individuals – the “tell”so to speak- we can at least stop accusing them/fighting against them by recognizing how they COME OR APPEAR AMONG US.
