Optimism is justified
Like many of you I feel very optimistic about our future.
The image above is from somewhere in Idaho.
Nothing we are doing, including III Arms and the Citadel, will change the course of America at large. Ugly events are imminent for the republic, and nothing a mere few thousand patriotic families choose to do will stop hundreds of millions of our Countrymen from their self-destructive course.
So be it.
What is within our power is the ability to get out of their way and let them suffer the stupidity they seem determined to bring down upon their heads. We have the power to step aside and take a defensive posture in a beautiful piece of America, engaging ourselves in productive endeavors, living with like-minded Patriots, choosing peace while keeping an eye on the horizon just in case any Bad People choose to make a mistake and come our way.
America became the power in the world for many reasons, not the least of which is our history of unbridled Free Enterprise. Bold Americans built railroads and the telegraph system, making fortunes, advancing the country, and giving honest work to many, many families. We will follow that model as we move forward. We will build a product that has tangible value to a great percentage of our Countrymen, and we will benefit from that business activity.
We will use the fruits of that labor to feed, clothe, house ourselves and keep ourselves safe, warm and happy. Not every Patriot needs to work directly for III Arms Company to benefit from the company. Indeed, the number of direct employees will be relatively small, as the business can only prudently employ so many Souls.
But the byproduct of a successful company is opportunity and prosperity for bold Americans who choose to leave their current location and establish home & hearth in the shadow of III Arms. One of our Patriots (and III Arms Founders) is a professional construction executive, and he has offered invaluable insights regarding the methods and costs of building our town. As a town grows there will be a need for every skillset, from a hair salon to heavy equipment operators, electricians to librarians to butchers to bar keeps.
If you feel the pressures and the grind of life, take a deep breath and look toward Idaho. Permit the potential to dance in your minds.
And for those of you who support this project yet have no intention of moving, just know the doors will always be open for you, even if you just wish to drop in to visit a growing town of people who see the world as do you.
