How Should I Be? – Advice for the sovereign individual on leadership | Cormac mac Airt

Many people study today’s paradigm in depth and have a good working knowledge of our situational landscape.  However, when we pause to consider solutions we often struggle to articulate what it will take to assemble an alternative course that upholds the moral and reasonable high ground.  If we harken back in time to the Celtic Christian concepts of our Founders, we have only the recollection of their Protestant philosophical roots to draw upon which was sufficient for the tyranny of their time where right and wrong, identity, and purpose was more clear cut.  Today after nearly a century of psychological operations upon the people, the very identity of the People is marred and our course and history is less clear.  Our understanding of the paradigm may be clear but who and what we are on both an individual and collective level is more difficult to grasp.

In this we find it more necessary to delve deeper into our roots for a restoration of that once majestic core identity woven into our human potential.  Thus out of the annals of the most ancient history, come whispers of what the Founders may have at one time known and protected carefully…via a promise of anonymity.   It’s time to remove that anonymity and uncloak what was protected for a new generation in dire need of that small facet of their history.  At this moment the direct provenance is less important to explain than to spend the effort to introduce the content and set the stage for the full restoration of identity.  Through old Laconia, a voice calls you to listen first to the words of the 2nd century Old Irish High King Cormac mac Airt as he spoke to his son Cairbre on the eve of his stepping down from the leadership of Ireland (Eire); his son to step up to that leadership, untried but conscientious of the degree of wisdom he would find needed.  Those words are about leadership and what it takes to be.

In terms of ancient Celtic culture the formulation of Being for the sovereign individual, occurs over many years and with highly detailed training via exposure to knowledge passed down generation after generation.  The words of Cormac comprises not only his own hard earned wisdom over the time of his life, but also that of all leaders and scholars of leadership of every manner and kind who went before him.  This is part of the heritage that was closely guarded by our Founders and in this time of confused identity, is most necessary to resurrect.  The following is but one small excerpt of the advice Cormac gave to his son.  It’s a starting point, not the whole of your inheritance.

QUOTE from the book The Counsels of Cormac: An Ancient Irish Guide to Leadership – A New Translation from the Original Old Irish by Thomas Cleary:

A question, said Cairbre:  How should I be?

That’s easy, said Cormac

Be intelligent to the intelligent, so no one may dupe you by means of intelligence.

Be proud to the proud, so no one may be over you causing you to quiver.

Be humble to the humble, so your will may be done.

Be talkative to the talkative, so you may be respected.

Be silent with the silent when listening to information.

Be hard to the hard, so no one treats you with contempt.

Be soft with the soft, so everyone doesn’t attack.

Cormac also said this: 

One is intelligent until one sells one’s inheritance.

One is foolish until one acquires land.

One is friend until it comes to debt.

One is a judge until it comes to children.

One is slothful until getting married.

One is virile until becoming religious.

One is respected until being defeated.

One is hospitable until refusing.

One is a nomad until homesteading.

One is a servant until one resides in one’s own abode.

One is sound of mind until becoming drunk.

One is sensible until getting enraged.

One is well-behaved until committing sexual misconduct.

One is calm until fostering children.

One is confident until quarreling.

One is free until being denounced.

One is cheerful until misfortune occurs.

One is bold until refused.

One is a pedestrian until one is a charioteer.

All music is noble through the harp.

One who is prosperous is dignified.

One who is wretched is unseemly.

The sweetest sleep is lying together.

The sweetest ale is the first drink.

The sweetest music is music in the dark.

The sweetest person is the worthy one.

A young person who is tractable, humble, obedient, earnest in conscience and confession, will be beloved in youth, esteemed in old age, true in his word, noble in his appearance, high even if lowly, mature though youthful; his destiny with God and humanity will be good.

— This was one small bit of the advice that Cormac gave his son, and it was written down for not only him, but for all people as everyone is sovereign…you were created equal; you are a leader.  Your Being is to be in good standing.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” — The Declaration of Independence.  Jul 4, 2015
Celtic wisdom is most often given in metaphor.  Every piece embodies a subject of knowledge.  It paints a concept landscape.  The book quoted above contains 50 pages of the wisdom of Cormac on leadership.  For the individual serious about reconstructing the character of our heritage, it is this author’s opinion that the content’s of the advice Cormac gave to his son is imperative to learn and understand.  For this reason I strongly recommend the book from which this excerpt comes.  Buy two copies and give one away.   Hard copy can be found on Amazon.com

Excerpt:

Cormac mac Airt (son of Art), also known as Cormac ua Cuinn (grandson of Conn) or Cormac Ulfada (long beard), was, according to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, a High King of Ireland. He is probably the most famous of the ancient High Kings, and may have been an authentic historical figure, although many legends have attached themselves to him, and his reign is variously dated as early as the 2nd century and as late as the 4th. He is said to have ruled from Tara, the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, for forty years, and under his rule Tara flourished. He was famous for his wise, true, and generous judgments. In the Annals of Clonmacnoise, translated in 1627, he is described as:

“absolutely the best king that ever reigned in Ireland before himself…wise learned, valiant and mild, not given causelessly to be bloody as many of his ancestors were, he reigned majestically and magnificently”.

The hero Fionn mac Cumhaill is supposed to have lived in Cormac’s time, and most of the stories of the Fenian Cycle are set during his reign.

 

Cyrellys:  For the ones who have stayed in this nation to fight the good fight; who have not given up hope. You are in the finest tradition of the ancients who left for you this trail of various bread crumbs to your inheritance; your identity.  It was for you this nation was created, not the statists, corporatists, or Illumines.  You are ROAR.

ROAR: that of an ancient and irrevocable order of things; an undeniable power drawn from the Source.

Two RAF Typhoons are scrambled to intercept pair of nuclear-capable Russian Blackjack bombers heading towards UK airspace

Two RAF Typhoons have been scrambled this afternoon to intercept two Russian bombers heading towards UK airspace.

The Ministry of Defence has confirmed two Tupolev Tu-160 Blackjack aircraft have been spotted heading towards Britain with Typhoons sent out in response.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman confirmed that the Russian jets are currently in the UK’s area of interest, but have not yet entered UK airspace.

The Typhoons, which were dispatched from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, are currently escorting the bombers south across the North Sea.

They are part of the UK’s Quick Reaction Alert. The UK’s airspace covers a 12-mile radius out from the UK coastline.

It is believed the aircraft are with the Long Range Aviation branch of the Russian military, which are involved in strategic bombing missions and carry nuclear weapons. They have never penetrated UK airspace.

BREAKING: WW3 May Have Begun This Morning! Turkey Shelling Syria, Saudis Attack, and Russian ‘NEW WORLD WAR’ Ultimatum!

 

<<< BREAKING UPDATE >>>
BREAKING: MIDDLE EAST CARPET-BOMBING
50 Civilians Killed In Syria By Airstrikes On Hospitals And School

FIGHTING HAS BEGUN! Turkey Shelling into Syria; Attacking Syrian Arab Army and border of Russian Base in Latakia.

According to Jewsnews, those positions are held by the Syrian Arab Army (legitimate, duly-elected government of Syria) and are NOT being aimed at ISIS terrorists! These are direct attacks by Turkey upon the lawful government forces of Syria.

With their rebel allies falling to the legitimate government of Syria, Turkey has now begun shelling Syria to aid their Rebel forces and ISIS Terrorists.

Sources on the ground inside Syria claim that the Turks began an intense artillery assault at about 6:00 AM eastern US time today.  Turkey is also said to be targeting the Kurdish YPG.Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 1.49.23 PM

It is unclear at this time, whether the YPG is supporting Bashar Assad and his officially elected government, but it is clear that the YPG has directly attacked and destroyed ISIS in the past. At this point it appears that the YPG are being attacked by Turkey for supporting Assad!

Russia Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has warned US and Arab Countries Not to Dare Enter Syria With Armies threatening:

“Invading Syria Will Start A New World War.”

If Russia initiates an offensive against Turkey, even though they may have the legitimate right to do so, Turkey will undoubtedly appeal to NATO for support. Having been “attacked” they will try to invoke Article 5 of the NATO self-defense agreement. That would require NATO to come to the defense of Turkey, thus engaging Russia directly.

One intelligence source in the US said, “This Has Disaster Written All Over It.”

UPDATE: 12:32 PM EST — According to superstation 95, Turkish warplanes are flying on the Turkey side of the Turkey/Syria Border, fast and low. Russian warplanes are flying on the Syrian side of the Turkey/Syria border. If any one of these pilots flies across, or fires across, the border, “all hell could break lose” today.

UPDATE:  1:56 PM Eastern US Time,  13 February 2016 — Stratfor is now confirming Russia has dispatched a ship to the Mediterranean, to deliver Nuclear-Tipped Cruise Missiles.

UPDATE: 2:45 PM Eastern US Time — UK military members told to cancel all plans and all leave, prepare for deployment to Syria!

UPDATE:  2:49 PM Eastern US Time — Turkish Military Artillery Forces have just begun yet another barrage of artillery fire into Syria; this one is directly targeting the Syrian Arab Army and is a direct attack upon the lawful government of Syria —  Turkey is now levying war upon Syria.  Turkey attacked first. Turkey cannot expect to be able to invoke NATO Article 5 because Turkey attacked first.

UPDATE:  2:58 PM Eastern US Time — A fleet of Russian Antonov-124 cargo planes (the largest cargo planes in the world) have begun arriving in Syria carrying Russian Tanks, Nuclear-tipped artillery shells and other major weaponry. Within the last 90 minutes, two of these massive cargo aircraft have landed and are unloading.  Other Antoniv’s can be seen circling under protection from Russian fighter jets.

UPDATE: 4:01 PM Eastern US Time — According to CNN, The Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia announced: “Assad will leave — have no doubt about it. He will either leave by a political process or he will be removed by force.”

UPDATE: 10:01 AM Eastern US Time — According to The Guardian, Saudi Arabia said it was preparing to launch what it described as the largest military exercise ever conducted in the Middle East, dubbed Northern Thunder, featuring 20 allied Arab and Muslim countries.

Labeling Theory of Crime and Impact

By QUINTUS DIAS.  With concern and attention to Harney County Oregon.

The Labeling Theory of Crime and Impact

 

ALIEN TO THE COMMUNITY

 

Avoid being labeled and tagged by the establishment’s MSM as a dangerous alien to the community (Nazi criminal construct). Who does this?

 

  • The courts, the police, moral entrepreneurs, friends, schools and family perceiving you as an alien to the community.
  • The Nazi/Soviet institutions attempted to do this in classifying and categorizing people under the construct of a national security state. Aliens were problematic people and likely enemies of state.

 

  1. If we don’t, then the establishment can basically shove us to the margin with pejorative words, and initiate a long-term criminalization process that may result in your imprisonment or death.

 

TEACHING
III. I used to teach my law and justice students that the establishment has the power to

  • create criminals, deviants, crazies, militants, extremists, radicals, pedophiles, rapists, killers, and other problematic people out of thin
    air by
  • tagging them with long-term denigrating labels (you just read some of them) that serve to discredit you and to marginalize you.

CONSEQUENCES

  • Social groups (the elites and moral entrepreneurs, who perceive you to be a threat may pass criminal legislation-targeting you…THEN
  • organizations (schools, police and the criminal justice system, who are supposed to do something about crime), will jump on you and THEN
  • your friends, parents, and others, who may
    disapprove of your behavior have the latent power to label you as a dangerous social threat based on their reactions to your behavior, words, and attitude.

TAGGING and APPLYING THE LABEL

IV.   Once the label is applied and tagged on to you by the press and becomes common in the public domain, the consequences can be hugely dramatic.  SUCH AS

  • You may be fired by your employer (disruptive or undesirable employee), OR
  • prosecuted (terrorist, sexual deviant, revolutionary), OR
  • jailed, or killed by police (dangerous criminal or radical) without credible evidence to support the charges…KEEP IN MIND-

TERMINAL OUTCOME

  • once you are tagged… the public could care less about you or your fate (good riddance to bad shit!). THIS CAN RESULT IN-

PERVASIVE CRIMINALITY AND SOCIAL CHAOS

V. Those labeled often turn to crime because they have no other
alternative–“they made me a criminal” mindset APPLIES-therefore, I will be the next Bonnie and Clyde and go Clyde or Bonnie one better.

THE CHIEF TAGGERS

VI. The MAIN taggers are: the press, sociologists, psychiatrists, police and judges.  Consequentially, the taggers react to

  • perceived threats caused by a person’s actions, words or general disposition that appears at odds to the norm or to their perception of what the norms should be.
  • There may be no actually criminal offense.  Consider the consequences if the
    press, a psychiatrist, or a girlfriend (husband), a physician, or a judge labels you as a likely sex-offender.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TAGGED?

VII. What happens when the tag is successfully applied?  Absolute hell!  And that follows you around, especially if it makes the press, or becomes chat on the Internet, or winds up in a file in the police’s criminal intelligence section.

ORIGINS OF LABELING AS CRIME THEORY

VIII. Labeling crime theory became popular during the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s.  But actually, it goes back a lot further, especially to the

  • intense outlaw period of American history (reconstruction post-civil war: the carpetbagger era, the bank and train robbers, cattle rustlers era to the mobile car bandits of the 1930s).
  • Back then, elites and “Robber Barons” controlled the justice system and the press, as they do now.  Thus, if you refused to sell your land, your business, our your water rights, and sought help from friends or others so dispossessed-
  • The establishment labeled you as BANDITTI-to be killed
    on the spot by putting you on a criminal wanted list as bounty.
  • Once the label was applied and with the innovation and use of the telegraph and telephone [followed on by the computer and the Internet] there was no place you could hide to escape the label.
  • Bounty hunters and professional killers, like the Pinkerton Agency did not care if you were innocent.  They collected fees by either capturing you or killing you
    (wanted: dead or alive).
  • Think the criminal justice system a hugely profitable establishment business.

THE CJ SYSTEM IS A BUSINESS

  1. This is why you see the MSM and establishment officials constantly tagging people they do not like or are afraid of as: militant, deviant, Constitutionalist, sovereign citizen, revolutionary, criminal-minded, extremist, armed, radical, crazy and so on. It fuels the justice system as a vast business enterprise where lawyers, police, technicians, prison wardens, jailers, judges, coroners, funeral homes, and prosecutors can make money.

ISOLATION AND CONTAINMENT

X. Today, labeling agencies and taggers center on isolating you from the mainstream, turning people against you, and prompting you to commit desperate acts just to survive.  If you commit a crime in your survival quest, then they have you and there is no escape!  How do you escape from being tagged as an EX-CON?

AN EXAMPLE

Aamon Bundy is now forever engraved in people’s minds aone or more of the following-

  • Armed Militant
  • Militia member
  • Crazy
  • Social Disruptor
  • Revolutionary
  • Agitator
  • Unsavory (based on views that his friends are unsavory low-life trash).

THE UPSHOT

XI. My sense is that we need to turn around the tag applied to a good and decent man-LaVoy Finicum is now forever labeled as an armed and crazed militant (nobody wants to get shot unless they are crazy, right?).

NOTE: the alternative media also has the power to label and tag AND WE MUST DO THIS because-

 

  • the establishment just killed THE QUINTESSENTIAL AMERICAN COWBOY HERO (The rugged, independent, brave and stoic horseman–the Marlboro Man [forget the cigarettes]), and right before our eyes.

 

  • Always keep this in mind… The establishment’s Illumines always kill you twice.  In the first instance, they kill you physically.  In the second, they kill your reputation.

 

  • We can do the same with the independent media…and must stop playing nice.

 

  • We are in a war and the enemy is shooting and killing us.

Elemental Ghost: What I think is the most disturbing is the naive belief on our side of the fence that any leaders we utilize must be freakin saints
naconah: seen that too
naconah: nobody is a saint in war
Elemental Ghost: precisely
Elemental Ghost: and often those who see and understand abject tyranny best are those who’ve been close enough to get a good look, and since victims rarely survive it, that means those who live long enough to teach are those who were once a part of it.
naconah: Dutch cops arresting anyone anti-muzzie protester posting shit on the web pages against muzzies in Holland

Elemental Ghost: scrubbing evidence
naconah: Source alleges land vultures scout out land that feds want and then cause probs for land owner so they miss payments and then inform IRS that they are tax cheats.  IRS goes after them and seizes the land and then it is turned over to BLM and handed over to corps for nothing

Elemental Ghost: the  (snip) said, “someone’s gotta pay for this.” (snip) also said, “policy is for the system inhabitants and the elites…laws are for containing and controlling the general population.”
naconah: yeah, not for them
naconah: Ok, in a nutshell, pay attention the NWO security system is basically this–
Elemental Ghost: I was reading the old philosophers that (snip) was having me post to TMM and noticed that they were saturated with ancient Celtic / Old Irish terminology and concepts
Elemental Ghost: in English
Elemental Ghost: And when I read the Atticus poem I seen the phrase Stone of Resistance used correctly.
Elemental Ghost: They left a trail of our history for someone who could recognize it to follow
naconah: A roman global legionnaire military/police system with SWAT teams posed in key strategic positions in the world to put down disturbances.  Writer’s of this said it could be maintained indefinitely and sustained long-term at little cost to them as a UN tax would pay for it…basically, they felt the price under the rubric of low intensity conflict could be sustained indefinitely and loses could be written off with little problem
naconah: so, there it is
naconah: a global legionnaire system
naconah: based on the Roman model
Elemental Ghost: yes that is it…and the document I referred to is full of proposals on carbon taxation
naconah: I tried to tell ppl about what I read and they fled down the road with hair on fire…even cops I trusted and mil officers scoffed

We have seen discussion from fedgov about expanding the national monument system and intense opposition to it.  This construct is operative right now in Harney County, OR.  It appears that fedgov and elites are using this construct to even withdraw more land from private ownership.  It also appears that they are subverting and co-opting sportsmen, legislators, and businessmen to encourage and support the system.
