History of Patriots

What is a Patriot?

Patriots create a purpose for living. They give people purpose, they give life meaning. 'My country is the world' wrote Thomas Paine in the Rights of Man - patriots do not recognized national, geological, manmade, or superstitious boundaries. To a patriot, all people are under his charge - each and everything thing upon Earth is beneath their command.

A patriot understands the value of chaos. Without change, with perpetual order, we would exist like clockwork: no meaning what-so-ever. A patriots job is never to assist the black hand as it swipes pawns off the chess board, neither in part nor parcel. Patriots see beyond the board to the vastness and limitless expanse of life.

Patriots are the biproducts of cultural phenomina. In times of great culture and of strong society, patriots bang out like fireworks upon the sky. They sacrifice life, not for money nor legacy; but for the immediate benefit of the living. Their legacy is one doomed - for their vision so potent, obtainment proves impossible. Generations are born, their work carried on, those lives sacrificed, and more born again... until after a great epoc an inkling of truth manefests in the present.

Like truth, a patriot can never be known or observed, directly. To witness unflinching conviction and fulness of purpose is submit beneath the weight of one massive stone, and out of freight, publics fling their arrows. No, the legacy of a patriot can not be desired; it is the life of a patriot that matters - this one life.

May we continue their great work, in bringing society ever closer to peace.

Not for fame - not for fortune - not for the future; but for today.

This is our burn.

There is no hope, no future, no past, nor a decision: there is only one thing - life.

Patriots live.

So while it hurts to acknowledge greatness, let us take pleasure in this pain, knowing that one day we too - just for one day - may live: for life.

Human Patriots

Civil Rights Era

The Civil Rights Era could more interpretatively be called racial rights, lasting from around 1800 to 2000 AD. Following the Age of Enlightenment, the social question was posed: can human races interact in peace? To which the world began discussing in earnest during the American Civil War, and concluded sometime after World War II.

The primary technology associated with the advent of interacial human relations was plane travel. As culture leaders quickly, instantly migrated from continent to continent more and more humans leaders converged upon a notion that societal ills were not plagues brought about by foreign races, but the cause of something more brutal.
