Passing on the Torch

It may be that 1 or more family members will pick up on your political/cultural philosophies. It might be someone non-related.


In some way, we have to prepare for the next generation of revolutionaries. One way to pass the torch is to blog. I've been doing that for some time. It seems to work best when you get a group to share the burden. By yourself, it takes a lot of time to build an audience, come up with fresh ideas, and sustain the energy to keep blogging over time.

Another is to circulate our vast libraries of influential books. I'm looking at organizing a meetup of like-minded people, and working out a community swap of books. I'm in the process of organizing my books on Library Thing, and have set up a local group - Rock Hill Conservatives. What's nice about this site is that you can search the libraries of other group members, and ask to borrow a book. This might make it a little less expensive to borrow those books that are seminal, but not cheap.

I never had the money for the big conventions/meetings. From what I hear, they are less geared towards building the grass roots, and more interested in building THEIR brand name. Over time, if the interest grows, it might be useful to gather for some personal interaction, dividing into interest groups, and seeing what develops.
