A Place to Visit, a Place to Learn

Friends. At least, I hope you are my friends if you stop by here and listen to my little vents and insights on a regular basis.

It is time for a change of venue for me and my written work. I plan on maintaining Natural Consequences on a somewhat less frequent basis, and focusing my writing efforts at Kinism.net, where a group of us are publishing who share a common belief that being a White Christian is a blessing from God rather than something to be ashamed of.

I would like to invite sincere seekers to come visit us there and find out what Kinism is and can become. There is much in the way of misinformation out there about what Kinists believe, and the site is part of an effort to correct such drivel.

God willing, God will vindicate us.
Deo Volente, Deo Vindice.

Laurel,

I have read your blog on and off for sometime now, and I have a question: Do you vote in local, state, or national elections?

Laurel1861 said...

Of course, I vote.

When I vote, I vote on principle, which sometimes means I don't necessarily vote for candidates who "stand a chance of winning", but rather for those who hold to Biblical principles.

I am, of course, still hoping they will add a choice to the list of candidates on the ballot: "None of the Above".

God bless,
Laurel

Thank you Laurel for your reply.

I commented to you Laurel because of all the kinist writings, you seem to be the most level headed. I base this solely on your good manners in your postings and relevant speech, not some rant that promps comments like "good one 'ol boy" like some other blogs. Anyway, I find my own politics and viewpoints to be very in line with yours, which is why I asked about your voting. When I visited the site (kinism.net) via your blog, I was wondering how you reconcile such statements:

"The borders of a Kinist nation would be secure, and sensible anti-miscegenation laws would be enacted, while suffrage would be restricted to landed white males 21 and older, while we work toward a godly, free republic."

It seems that this is an appeal to return to the Confederate South. Though this has its appeals for various reasons, I have to wonder- why would it work this time?

Thanks for your trust, Anonymous...

This is precisely the kind of inquiry that would be right at home in the forums at Kinism.net, where we hope to foster genuine discussion.

With your permission, I would like to transfer your inquiry over there into the forum,as I would like to open our discussion here to other points of view. It's not the kind of forum where ranting and flaming are encouraged; indeed, we remove those kind of posts.

Kinism is not necessarily monolithic, btw, and there is room for discussion and exploration. While the Confederacy fell in the face of overwhelming numbers and ungentlemanly warfare waged by the North, many of us look to take what was good about it and see where there is application.

A personal aside: good manners are important; much of what passes for conflict in the world seems to be based on people who don't share a common code of behaviour.

The voting point you've brought up is certainly one where there are differences of opinion. I believe the concept is that when a household is united as a voting unit it is stronger. So often families have as many different votes on the same subject as there are family members, so they cancel each other's votes out, effectively hamstringing the family.

In any event, it's all discussion items that are of interest. Let me know so I can transfer your question over there, or feel free to post it on your own.

May God bless your honest inquiry,
Laurel

Laurel,

I look forward to following your writings and insights at kinism.net. While there is much work to be done in the way of defense of kinism against its very vocal critics, there also is much discussion and deliberation that needs to take place among kinists. I am very glad to see the forums back online. Indeed, let us pick up the discussion and continue...

Laurel1861 said...

Amen, S.C., let the discussion begin.

See ya over in the new neighborhood!

God bless,
Laurel

Oh, and I guess I need a "handle" of some sort. Sorry to post over and over again as anonymous.

Lisa, I just transferred the text of our conversation over to the Kinist Principles forum at Kinism.net.

Please feel free to add your own message if there are any points you would like to elaborate upon.

May God bless your sincere seeking,
Laurel
