The Second Horseman

Azazel

 

  "When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come and see!" Then another horse came out a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword."

-Revelations 6:3-4

 

 Conflict to me is the ultimate representation of free will, to be at peace with someone is to either be in camaraderie or compliance and it is often simple to mistake the two. Here we have the playing field to be intellectual adversaries and yet maintain a sense of camaraderie. The camaraderie comes from the intellect group that sites like this attract; Satanist, Nihilist, Atheist, Agnostic, Egoist, Anarchist, < all these and other "labels" have been placed on our heads either by ourselves and others, the problem with such labels is that they limit the range of conflict that can occur. In some ways our labels are related  therefore we have similar thoughts on varying subjects and a little bit in common with each other; we find resonance and in one way or another we lose a sense of our individuality when we gather like this, not just on this site but on any site that has a theme. When does resonance become a bad thing? and is it a bad thing? Is a true Individual to be solitary? or does the Individual have more value when it has the strength to remain itself among others?

 

  On might is right, how does one define might? Asserting yourself as an Individual requires more than a keen and educated mind, it requires a dash of stubbornness and in some cases the brawn to back yourself up. Many times have I found myself standing apart from a man who has run out of things to say, and when a man runs out of things to say he does one of two things 1. He lets his fists do the talking or 2. He submits to your will. And before I get my ass torn out by a select few Amazonians due to the heavy masculine tone to this blog, if woman have one blessing it’s the lack of testosterone that makes us men angry brutish guerillas. Now back to my train of rambling chaotic thoughts…

 

  On conflict with authority, this is what frustrates me the most in my life. I cant be myself because I have authorities above me that have the brawn and numbers to mold me to some extent. For example, I was talking with my father about taking my bike out to the drag strip next summer because I'm a bit of a speed junkie. Now in order to race any bike that can perform at a certain level, you have to spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars for specific gear and parts to be allowed on the strip. Now of course I could say fuck the strip and race the roads but if I reach "felony speed" and get caught I can lose my bike and the right to ride it. Another example; I'm hungry and broke right now, however there's some nice tasty deer outside. It'd be a simple task to shoot and field dress one so I can eat for the next week but I cant, pouching charges in NY can cause me to lose my right to bare arms plus a several thousand dollar fine so I'm forced by the powers that be to work a 7-4 job so I can eat and get shelter. Why cant I just wander into the woods and drop a house somewhere? Because of zoning laws, taxes, regulations hell I cant even opt to shit in an outhouse in NY because having a leech field and plumbing is required for your residence to pass any sort of health laws. I can go on and on and on but I'm going to stop on that tangent and open my thoughts to those of others.

Quote 1; “Is a true Individual to be solitary? or does the Individual have more value when it has the strength to remain itself among others?”

This I see as the most important set of questions in this blog. Without question I would say the strength to remain ones self in a group (but still know progression when it is seen). Often with groups that think they have strength an alliance or value of choice passed to another is the first payment that should set off alarm bells. There is no use in breaking away from one leader to replace it with another and yet say that choices that come after are totally yours.

Quote 2; “when a man runs out of things to say he does one of two things 1. He lets his fists do the talking or 2. He submits to your will.”

This depends as many times words are worth less than the fist. So this would totally depend on the topic and how far it is taken. I know I have a line where if crossed no words I say will be enough but also there is the care value place on the target person and if I have to do something or just walk off laughing at them.

As for the last paragraph,,,
How far do you wish to take this? Do you really need to shoot a deer as there is a lot of wastage that leaves a trail if for only one person? Planning ahead is one thing but to carry more than you need at any one time is just too much weight in my mind. Are these challenges to be over come or excuses used? Yes you most likely will find bounds you will not cross over but at least admit to yourself where they are and why.

Nith first off i appreciate the comment. Secondly "Are these challenges to be over come or excuses used?" Honestly a bit of both, but in my mind they are obstacles that shouldn't exist.

What fun would slalom be without a few turns. The more you get into it the more fun those turns get. What shouldn't be there and what is there are two different things. Motorcyclists would know this better than most I would think (even just dealing with traffic and not the random things found on roads).What fun would slalom be without a few turns.
