The blog was quiet this weekend because we went on a family vacation to Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, GA. I decided to leave the laptop behind because I didn’t want to be distracted while celebrating my son’s birthday and I spend way too much time here anyway.
I’m not going to post any family pictures this time. I think some of the commentators are right about the weird, violent leftists who monitor this blog. It is why I have traditionally kept my personal life separate from my writing. I’m still going to write about more family stuff though mainly because of the weirdness that has crept into our corner of the internet which has turned off so many people.
- It was perfect spring weather in the Sunny South and a great weekend to enjoy the outdoors in south Georgia. It wasn’t too hot and there was a steady breeze.
- My son had a great time in the water park and the amusement park which is the only thing that mattered as it was the rationale for the trip.
- I like to collect t-shirts, books about local history and coffee cups and I found a great red brick color Georgia t-shirt which I am wearing now.
- It seemed to me that everyone at Wild Adventures was enjoying themselves and having a good time. Overall, I managed to have a good time too this weekend.
- The best part was the nature trail that leads through the swamp because you can check out the local wildlife as well as various species from around the world. It is also quieter and shadier than the rest of the park and was thus more enjoyable from my point of view.
- There is a train that kids can ride on through the park which is like the one at the St. Louis Zoo. My son loved it.
- As a historicist, I am highly aware that our ancestors in Georgia a century ago didn’t have anything like this and the park itself is wonderful and is really a marvel when you think about it.
- Unfortunately, we went out to eat at a local steakhouse on Saturday night and I woke up suffering from food poisoning which I am still dealing with and which made me miserable on Sunday. The food poisoning had nothing to do with Wild Adventures though.
- As is the case with any public accommodation these days, I was bombarded all weekend by visual images which I found constantly assaulting my sense of order and propriety: the obese, blue-haired lesbians, the interracial couples, the 400 lb White guy who literally drove in his scooter off the set of WALL-E through the water park, the 400 lb black guy in the Bob Marley t-shirt, the wave pool which was about 60% black, the haggard looking White woman at the wave pool who was covered in tattoos with wings across her shoulders and lower back, the overwhelming impression that I got that over half the people in Wild Adventures could have diabetes.
- This isn’t even a “racist” observation because I didn’t feel any sense of hatred or dislike for anyone in the park. They were obviously just people having a good time. I was also reacting mostly to the White people as I observed them in the water park and while floating down the lazy river there in a tube. Instead, it felt more to me a lot more like that the place was disordered. I thought to myself … this is what a water park looks like on lolbertarianism.
- The thing that I most disliked about Wild Adventures was the lack of order, hierarchy and homogeneity. I suspect this is why so many people who share my sensibilities have simply abandoned these public places to all the blue-haired lesbians and the fat people. They would rather just stay home and have the kids play in their private pool.
What do you think?
Do you think our society has culturally progressed since the 1960s? It has progressed in the sense that “discrimination” (against everyone but Whites) has been declared immoral and evil has been redefined as various -isms and -phobias, but what have we lost in the process?
Note: No joke.
I found myself thinking about the Rise Above Movement this weekend. It is an amazing coincidence that three of them just had their charges dropped. We desperately need groups like that to revitalize our culture with authoritarianism, social conservatism and its sense of order and taste that has been so obviously lost over the course of the last 50 years.
