Now Is the Time To Dig Down – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on December 28, 2021

Next time you read about a politically connected big wig buying a failing newspaper, ask yourself, “Does Warren Buffett really need that failing newspaper in his portfolio to make money?” “Does Jeff Bezos really care about a more truthful media?” The media does not exist to tell the truth, it exists to get you to pay attention and to get you to believe a narrative. The narrative now is “Give up.”

I want to take a moment to thank you the readers at LRC, the writers at LRC, as well as Lew Rockwell, and all who contribute to the running of this site for being such a wonderful part of this year. I give to that effort  and encourage you to as well. I do that because the existence of LRC means so much to me. These past two years may have looked very different for me without it. It is a website and community that must be nurtured long into the future, especially because we have some bad dudes in the world with some bad plans for our future. More importantly, it is a place where lions gather and where sleeping lions are woken up. Such gathering places and news outlets are so vital at a time like this.

This past year has been a challenge that a select few have risen to.

The readers of these pages, in their correspondences and conversations with me, have shown themselves to be true lions that I am grateful to associate with.

I want to thank you if that describes you. And if you are anything like me, no matter how fierce of a lion you are being, you know that you can do better. I take this time of year to reflect on this and to make commitments to improve myself. If you are not already doing so, I would like to encourage the same of you as we enter into a new year.

2020 and 2021 have seen our country and the globe largely led by the most atrocious voices imaginable. I look forward to 2022 being a time that the lions increasingly move into positions of influence — in their own lives, in their own homes, in their own communities, and beyond. So much of my latest work has focussed on that.

As I prepare for the year ahead, these past two weeks, I have been asking three questions about everything in my life that I can think of:

1.) What am I doing right?

2.) What am I doing wrong?

3.) What can I do better?
