Our Glossary is to help those unfamiliar with some of our work get acquainted with our use of language. The Dissident often speaks in oblique terms as to avoid the kkkraken of karen or the blunt sword of social jihad across his neck. Our language is part of our story. The more you read here the more you will come to understand that we really are all in this together. Just not quite in how they think.
Pureblood. Those who chose to not accept the [REDACTED] into their hearts. Many, at great cost to their social relationships, livelihoods, and even family bonds. Those who were perhaps coerced or otherwise compelled to submit to the [REDACTED] but who have since come to make their stand and similarly refuse to submit to further “treatment” are born-again purebloods and have all the rights and privileges.
FA/FO. F@CK around and Find Out. This is what happens when good, normal people are bludgeoned by tyrannical political animals, petty managerial State bureaucrats, and their agents of social, political, and economic power.
Tyrants confuse the habitual conflict avoidant compliance and polite and orderly social decorum of our people for weakness. They are mistaken. The event horizon of their hubris - and the collective will of our common heritage, is the proposition of FA/FO.
FU/MM. F@CK YOU. MAKE ME. Natures arbiter lays in wait. It slumbers behind the ‘go along to get along’ compliance that has been conditioned in most “good men”. Until the inherent sadistic nature of totalitarian power forces a reckoning. At which point a man simply refuses to play along. “No, I will not comply.”
Freejack. Its 1992. Emilio Estevez and Mick Jagger are opposites in a dystopian thriller set in the future: 2009. Like most action thrillers pumped out in the afterglow of the Cold War, it is an awesomely mediocre film, i.e., it's no “Red Dawn”. But like many of that genre it’s clumsy and heavy-handed portrayal of ‘the future’, is rapidly converging with the current year clown world. You think you own your body? How quaint!
Ex Gladio Libertas. Latin, “Freedom comes from the sword”. When the Civnat poasts on his Facebag that "freedom is not free", what he means is that your sons, who were obviously too stupid to get into Stanford like his daughter, should get blode up as an E-3 in whatever goat-patch the Uniparty and their bacon-wrapped MIC bizdev cronies decide needs to be liberated with Our Democracy, TikTok, and progressive gender-fluid sex-ed for six year-olds. Ex Gladio Libertas is not that.
Civnat. Civic Nationalist. One who believes that to be "American" is merely a matter of paperwork and being pro-commerce and pro flag. If he also fights hard for low taxes and "free markets" he is a Libertarian. Which is a liberal, without the messy stuff that happens when one actually attempts to map absurd theories to real life.
Sic Semper Tyrannis. Latin, “Thus always to tyrants.” It’s been the state motto of Virginia since 1776. The idea behind this ancient phrase is that tyrants, by definition, exercise unjust power. That power will eventually, and rightfully, befall them such that they will meet a dire end as a result. The Truth prevails in the end.
Deus Vult. Latin, "God wills it." An expression used by 11th century Christian Crusaders as a battle cry. In our modern context, we take up the battle cry as a declaration of the righteousness of the pursuit of Truth, as it is God's will.
Tyrannide resistere. Resist Tyranny. Shorthand for: Resist Tyrants; Obey God. Romans 13:1 1Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.
Wrongthink. A modern iteration of Crimethink from Orwell's book Nineteen Eighty-Four. Synonym: badthink. When one holds beliefs or opinions that run contrary to the prevailing orthodoxy. The implication being that freedom of opinion is being suppressed such that any expression of same would be subject to punishment – to the point that even harboring wrongthink in one own’s mind would be a criminal offense.
The Tree of Liberty. In a 1787 letter to William Stephens Smith, the son-in-law of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson used the phrase.
Excerpt: “We have had 13 states independent 11. years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Diagolon. A virtual federation of States and Provinces in North America that, in aggregate, form a diagonal geographical frontier from Alaska, through and including Provinces of Canada, to Florida.
This “diagonal” swath of land is still held in tenuous majority by patriots of God-given liberty. Our common values of freedom and liberty in the pursuit of Truth unites dissidents in these states to a common cause.
While the occupying Federal/Crown governments encroach upon us, the land of Diagolon still preserves some liberties. Surrounded by lands controlled entirely by the illegitimate State, known as Circulon, Diagolon is under constant duress by Circulonians and their lust for global homogenized tyranny. Thus, the Diagolon motto: “Death to Circulon!”.
It is the brainchild of patriot of liberty and former soldier: Raging Dissident. It is meant to embolden us to our cause and to remind us that we have many brothers on our side in a great swath of territory. We gather inspiration from many such dissidents who contribute their creations and energy to our common cause of liberty.
If You Can Keep It. Philadelphia, 1787. The delegates to the Constitutional Convention are leaving Independence Hall, having just decided on the framework for the new United States. A crowd had also gathered, eager to hear the news. An old woman approached Benjamin Franklin and asked him, “well, Doctor, what do we have, a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin replied sagely, “a republic, if you can keep it.”
As in most cases, this particular mythology of our nation's founding has several versions. But the essence of it has been one of hope and foreboding, of excitement - and a sobering duty to remain vigilant against what the Founders saw as a great weakness in the fledgling republic: the potential for a tyranny unlike the worst of the monarchs from which they had just violently revolted.
The vigilance and duty to the Republic remain. And that question lingers, the answer is in its asking. The Dissident knows. What next then? See: The Tree of Liberty.
