THIS BLOG has documented a change. It was the development of some ideas clanging around in your host’s head.

  • It was the story of a Liberal whose liberalism became meaningless as new vistas of thought opened up.
  • Whose pacifist anti-war stance hardened into an all-inclusive anti-imperialism.
  • Whose pink capitalism, (a trust of laissez faire economics mixed with misgivings about every single aspect of the economy requiring petroleum, and the lack of a market metric for human dignity,) became economic disestablishmentarianism.
  • Whose environmentalism became environmental defeatism.
  • Whose “feminist” Nigel-ism became cultural nihilism or, mayhaps, Anarcha-Feminism.
  • Whose democratic electoral reformism became alienated non-participation which in turn became a conscientious objection to democracy itself.
  • And somewhere along the line your host started a midlife crisis, became obsessed with time, realized that time to do the things one wants, (to spend with one’s loved ones, to be creative,) is priceless, for everyone, and came to realize that valuing peoples time unequally when you ask force them to work, is evil.

Really, the recent Grid Not Goal series of posts pretty well sums up current political views.

So, here we are at the end. The site will remain, but Stump Lane will no longer be updated. The Tumblr site will continue, though under a brand new different URL, at Odoriferous Zephyrs. (Yes it’s a fart joke.) Montag — the internet handle, not the meatspace person typing these words — is dead. Still not ready for complete non-anonymity, a new moniker is born for commenting, and potential future blogging purposes, though hopefully in a more creative vein.

    forgot: feminist “Nigel”-ism that became cultural nihilism.

    C. Nihilist – 0r as you will always be to me, “my Montag” – Thanks for checking out here – hope to see you around from time to time. As the rap song goes, “it hard out here for a pimp” – except for “pimp” substitute “conscientious, concerned citizen hoping to promote the good of all while still maintaining a lifestyle that includes delicious, nourishing food, a comfortable place to read an interesting book, and opportunities for joyful fun and unselfish love.” Perseverance furthers.

    With best wishes and warm regards,
