Offsite Post: ‘The Good Shepherd Solution’


Kaisar recently wrote a good article about the relevance of Julius Caesar, and we hope he will not mind us borrowing the form of his essay’s title for our own use.

But it is from an essay by Padraig Martin that we will quote from initially.  He wrote in his post of July 4th, 2023,


Generally, the most successful revolutions occur when a large body of combat trained persons feel disenfranchised by the current regime and they enjoy leaders who can set aside their egos to lead in a measured way. Such revolutionary leaders are rare. In fact, they are almost impossible to find. For every one George Washington, there are thousands of Stewart Rhodes.

Self-sacrifice:  This is a virtue that is essential for any uprising against an unjust power.  Without it, and without the love that animates it – love for God, kinsmen, land, culture, etc. – there would be nothing to generate and sustain the energies necessary to face the hardships of confrontation and war with the enemy power.  These virtues are woefully lacking in Southern ‘leadership’ today, even amongst those who are typically more well thought of, like a Gov. DeSantis of Florida.  Men like him, uS Sen. Cruz of Texas, etc., are not willing ‘to lay down their lives for the sheep’ (St. John’s Gospel 10:11), they are not willing to suffer and die for the well-being of other Southerners.

It is imperative, if we are to have a successful uprising against an evil ruling class in the DC swamp and elsewhere, that these virtues be inculcated in our people, particularly our leaders, the aristoi, by learning about Southern leaders who possessed them, like a Gen. John Bell Hood of Texas, men who literally lost arms and legs fighting off the Yankee invaders but who then valiantly got back onto the saddle to continue the fight rather than retire from the war, though they were well entitled to do that.

Particularly important and nourishing in this regard are the lives of Christian martyrs and confessors, those with the purest love for God and country.  One in particular stands out:  St. Tsotne Dadiani, from the country of Georgia, a country which was baptized into Christ in the 4th century.  Here is his story:

Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
