We Are Learning How to Wage War IN THE FIELD

When I criticize the International Genius Conspiracy stuff, at least one commenter usually reminds me that The Jewish Question is important.

This gives me a chance to go over once against what the difference is between BUGS and everybody else.

Every person who has done a lot of writing identifies instantly with what Montesquieu said, “If I had had more time, I would have written less.” We write something that we have been coming up with over a few weeks. Then we see it again a year later, after it has become part of our thinking, and the first thing that occurs to us is, “Good Lord, I could have said that in a few paragraphs, and it would have been a hell of a lot more understandable.”

Sometimes a year later even YOU have trouble understanding what the point you were making was. This was old news to Montesquieu centuries ago.

But Montesquieu lived in the days when books were rare and expensive. If one bought a book one expected it to belong and to occupy whole evenings.

“If I had had more time I would have written less” was already very true when books were routinely five hundred to a thousand pages long. Today it is absolutely critical.

“Well, you should toss that in, too” may be a good moral point, but we are fighting the most important war I in history here. Like the guys at Bunker Hill, we don’t have enough powder, so every shot must count.

Read General Comments 5 and you will see a group of people who are finding spots where they can throw in our short, worked over message before it gets banned. We have to figure out exactly what words, like “anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews,” their bots have been programmed for.

In the samizdat war we are fighting, “Just throw the Jews in” is NUTS if you have actually been out there in the middle of the fight.

This is NOT intended as an insult. It is a part of what we are learning, what I am learning. I have been in this fight over half a century and every time I read GC5 I learn something new, and I am not ashamed to say so.
