No. 198: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

⁂ Nashville's Alt-Daily ⁂ Harwell · BEP · MNPD · Commit to Culture · Automobile Evangelism · Much More!

Good morning, everyone.

It's been difficult to keep my eyes and ears away from the action in Ukraine. Twitter has been especially valuable in satisfying this urgent desire to know what is happening on the ground in Ukraine. After dipping in and out of a dozen or so Spaces wherein a bunch of self-anointed war experts convene, watch camera feeds all over Ukraine, and consult with citizens around Ukraine who dip in and out — air sirens and explosions booming in the background — you quickly get the impression that the Russin army is up against a more formidable resistance than anticipated.

One interesting fact that startled this writer is that it doesn't appear Russia has the ability to conduct ground attacks at night due to the army lacking night-vision equipment. One observer described the scene on the ground as the Russians running a 1970s style campaign against an early-2000s Ukrainian army.

Observations from halfway around the world.

It’s time for those on the Right to become openly comfortable with owning our beliefs. After that not-so-small feat, it is then important to retake ownership of the things that we value. We can’t shrink ourselves down and hope we find comradery by recognizing one another; two ships silently passing in a Bass Pro Shop aisle. Instead, we must get used to being open with our beliefs so that we can re-establish our stake in things like the arts, fashion, extra-curricular activities, and even environmentalism (why have we let “environmentalists'' steal this narrative from the true protectors and lovers of the environment: hunters, fishers, and farmers).

Having style is not just for quirky, Left-leaning creatives. Enjoying the symphony is not just for liberal arts graduates. Find a local leather shop to custom-make your briefcase. Invite your friends to watch Shakespeare in the park. Volunteer your time, contribute your money or both. Why? Because investment is the backbone of capitalism. People who are willing to invest in things have skin in the game. If you have skin in the game, you have influence. In fact, boycotting only works if your investment was significant in the first place. Own your power. Don’t just let the market own you.

A natural aversion to the modern car has led this writer on a mad search for automobile excellence across the city of Nashville. I am seeking cars that, like a good horse, the driver can care for with his own hands, and in return, it makes him a master of the road or trail. The path led me to the curt owner of a Porsche 914, a car that was tested on the tracks of extreme endurance races and emerged battered and covered with laurels. The owner is a car salesman and a mechanic. I am an Automobile Evangelist. We share a disdain for Big Government.

Words of Wisdom
"It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge. War endures. As well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner. That is the way it was and will be."

Cormac McCarthy
