The nameís Phil. Iím an awkward, anti-social, 18-year-old boy from Wisconsin who will never quite understand why people act the way they do. Why? Well, thing is Ė Iíve never quite been able to answer that one myself. But I have a theory, perhaps, of why fitting in with the rest of my peers has been (and always will be) impossible. In a Calvin Coolidge sort of way, I live in a time and place Ė an era, if you will Ė to which I donít belong. And quite honestly, I donít want to belong. The world around me is a dark and scary place. Everyday, I put up with the cruel, malicious voices that chatter, blather, and prattle all around me; the disturbing images that flash across the television screen, promoting violence, hedonism, sexual promiscuity, derision, cruelty, and Ė not only bad values Ė but a lack of them; the rampant drug use, the self-indulgent pop divas, the strippers, the nudists, the militant vulgarians, and the wholesale destruction of family values; the hitch-and-dispose-of attitude toward marriage, the disrespect for the sanctity of human life, the cultural Marxism imparted on children in government schools, and the worship of Social Democracy as God on Earth.
I think I belong in the year 1924. Or perhaps in an era long before the Roaring Twenties. But I donít belong here. And I donít belong in this body. If I could take my family, my partner, my pets, and a few close friends to a different era Ė or a different world Ė I would. But as long as Iím forced to live here, in 2011, with a creepo as president and a bunch of megalomaniacs as my ďleaders,Ē Iíll take what I can get. This blog is an outlet for me to vent about the insidiousness encompassing modern society. And with the last bit of hope I have in seeing some of the more positive elements of the Old Culture rediscovered and employed against the toxic vices of modernity, Iíll be happy to join the disgruntled Moral Minority in fighting the powers that be.
Let the Culture Wars begin.
