The best way to illustrate the “geist” or the “race soul” of the nation of Dixie is through the use of the sports and music of the American South.
As I experienced the “great awakening,” everything that I had witnessed over the years (hence the tribute to “Vulcan”) suddenly seemed to click and make sense. The intellectual fog had faded and a new conservative paradigm emerged into view.
I began to understand my own race and culture in the setting of an epoch of American history known as “Black Run America”:
In this video, the Anglo-American country music artist Blake Shelton travels to Rome and Paris, but finds himself wanting to sing a song about his own home, which is place called Oklahoma and Tennessee.
He has wandered thousands of miles away among the great capitals of Western Europe, but his thoughts are of Dixie and the Heartland in North America. This is what it must be like to psychologically experience alienation and anomie in a commercial society that has been constructed on the basis of the U.S. dollar and the profit motive.
The tune reminded me of Harold Covington who finds himself living in exile and isolated from his own friends and neighbors in the Pacific Northwest. How many times has Harold pleaded with us to “come home” to the Northwest Republic?
Why do you suppose he does that? Maybe he is just lonely. My theory is that he misses North Carolina the way it used to be.
Note: It sounds like Shelton is the product of an organic agrarian society that exists somewhere in the United States.
