One good night

I never thought it'd be Britain that'd be the first to break the link in the chains binding Europe.

They probably still won't be.

The leave campaign may flag and fail this night. It may succeed and my faith in the fire of mankind's soul will be reignited, to flicker and flame but one day more. Those that pretend to the throne of God over man will likely not honour it, certainly there is no constitutional rule in Britain that they should. Indeed I still suspect some trickery yet to be pulled at the end of the day, or some flat denials of the vote, or some legislative tricks to stymy or halt or stop it altogether. At best it may result in simple a pro-leave future PM, but with a staunchly pro-remain parliament to contend with.

I, for one, do not care.

I have been in despair for months on end, I have suffered years of hopelessness and this night, this one solitary night, as the markets crash, the economists and vampires of the world shuddering in fear, the dreams of the damned teeter and threaten to fall and spill their vileness before they poison us all, I see the enemy tremble.

And that is enough for me to sleep well one night more, damn the consequences.

God bless you all, and slan go phoile.

    1. Goodness no, Slan Go Phoile is just my customary sign off. I wrote this as I stayed up all night monitoring the Brexit results, I was very tired, a little woozy and shamelessly high on schadenfreude. Terribly sorry if I worried you.

  2. Irish Monarchist (Servant.) I discovered you because of your comment on VD.

    I read that you are from Northern Ireland (the North.) I am too.

    An impluse came over me to contact you. I am not a Christian. While I grew in a Protestant/ DUP town, I stayed away from thinking about the politics of this country. This despite the fact I studied politics and philosophy. Looking back, I think it was a desire not to face ugly realities. No more. I pay close attention to crime and organised violence. Last month, I read about a Priest who is being threatened. I see this, and I connect it to everything else that is happening. A decline.

    For the last three years I have lived in China, and it was life-changing in many ways. From a number of different sources I grew disenchanted with the left (I saw myself as a liberal.) Long story short: via Scot Adams comments I discovered Mencius Moldbug and then the NRx set, and alt-right. I read VD every day.

    I read your post on the Easter Rising. And I read your post on the Somme, and I agree with it.

    I see your comments about anger and frustration. Right now, I feel anger and despair. I always want to know the truth. But what I have read this year, has shattered my life. Sometimes, I wish I had faith. Right now, I don't really know what to do with my life.

    I write to you in the hope that we could correspond. I am going to add your blog to my reading list. And I will start reading your past entries.

    Best

    1. I would be happy to correspond with you. However my main email contains my real name and as a result I am rather paranoid about handing it out. Is there another method we can communicate on?

  3. Sorry for delay, my internet was broke for a while.

    I understand. What about using a messaging board for private chat? Or, we could just use the blog? However, maybe private messaging would be better.

    Sorry for delay. I hope we can communicate.

    1. Well, I have an alternate email you can communicate with me directly with if you wish for privacy.

      It is simply, all one word and without capitalization: the irish monarchist at gmail.com

      Note I do not check this email as often but you can contact me directly through it and now I actually have a reason to check it.

  5. I see the Alt Right and monarchists are not so thrilled with the Enlightenment. That would seem to be along the lines of Allen Bloom. (Closing of the American Mind). But Bloom takes the critique mainly from the beginning of the Enlightenment up until Kant and then skips over to the modern day American University. So he did not deal with German Idealism nor its offshoots. I am not sure why?

    I see a lot of value in German Idealism and the later people like C.G. Jung who built on Schopenhauer and Kant.

    Still the overall impression is that none of these people liked the Throne and Altar approach of the Middle Ages. Maybe that is why Bloom did not want to deal with it.

    1. Monarchists take nothing from the Enlightenment onwards for granted or as Axiomatically acceptable. Not even the Bonapartist faction in France necessarily takes Enlightenment ideas for granted anymore despite the controversy surrounding Bonapartism in monarchist circles.

    1. If this is the same person who is trying to contact me, that email address cannot be reached.

    2. There may be an alternative. If you are on Gab, you can find me as Servant_of_the_chief or as IrishMonarchist, and can contact me there.
