Interpersonal Networks

Bear meetups

Communities are offline.

The maxim your network is your net worth could not be stressed enough in the age of the Internet. Although this technology's main goal is to surveil, propagandize, and gas light the masses, there is an unintended consequence of its existence: the ability to politically mobilize local communities.

To my knowledge, organizing in-person meetups with like minded individuals is the greatest gift the Internet has brought us: many take it for granted. If it's not in-person it's not a community. Without a communal network, you have very little influence. The left and cuckservatives already have that figured out. For grassroots movements, the Internet is the tool belt and the in-person network is the boots on the ground. In other words, the Internet ≠ your Interpersonal network.

Communities don't have to be inherently militant or political. Often times it's liberating to find like minded people in your area who will have your back in hard times. Whether it's BBQing with a group of buddies, or playing cards: in-person meetups are what will spearhead real political change at the local level.

Meetups are what's valuable. The Internet is a means to this end.

Here are some examples:

These communities are not cults or religions. In fact, I believe radically changing your theology to create or join such a group is defeating the point. This is something Luke Smith is trying to do with Orthodoxy. The point is to find people you agree with on practical matters such as politics, not religion. That's what Church is for.

The truth is it's bizarre and nontraditional to meetup with random strangers you found on the Internet. But in the bizarre times we are living through, it's these very people, who're far and few between, which may give us a fighting chance in establishing distributed local networks.

While going to Church will fulfill real hope, these distributed networks will be a stepping stone towards political liberation. This means becoming independent of top-down supply chains, education systems, real estate markets, centralized banks, and much more.

Such networks will also not be at the mercy of big tech. Twitter is used by leftists to organize real events while libertarians and conservatives use it to shout into the void. The key takeaway is to remember that if you're not using independent tech to create and merge personal networks you're wasting your time.
