Unified Patriots by Vassar Bushmills
What a time to be alive!
Because we’re stuck in the middle of it, and even in our small ways, all involved in it, it’s difficult to step back and see the true epic significance of the times we are watching unfold, or even our small place in it. In his famous St Crispin Day’s oration on the eve of the battle of Agincourt, 1415, where the French outnumbered the English 5:1, Shakespeare had Henry V say that in later years these men would feast their neighbors and roll up their sleeves to show their scars, and freshly remember the names who caused it all to happen.
Those English commoners and bowmen then threw down the French nobility, which in history was a big deal, since in 1415 no one had ever thrown down the French nobility. At the time no one knew just how easy throwing down the French nobility would be, but over the next 500 years it would occur several more times. (See the current film blockbuster, Dunkirk, if you don’t believe me.)
The inherent weakness of French nobility has a direct bearing on the character of the type of enemies we face today, both on the Left and within the royal wing of the Republican Party, but watch the clip, just five uplifting minutes, for memories yet to come about being in the middle of epochal history being made.
Keep in mind how these days will look and feel, looking back over your shoulders twenty-thirty years from now.
So, rejoice Dear Hearts!
We are winning and we are beginning a process that will explode on a dozen political (and hopefully cultural) fronts over the coming months and years. As long as our “hearts are in the trim” (also from “Henry V”) it won’t matter whether we can do it all before Christmas 2017 or Christmas 2024[…]
