I had considered posting in the thread about the Fed, but even if I still hold that citizenship, it has not been my home for a long time, nor is my allegiance with it as strong as it once was.
I used to be “displaced” for quite a while. I don’t think I am anymore. I hope I won’t be.
I use to lead my own corporation, my own movement: HUCOM. What follows is part of the announcement I intended to post on the IGS after creating my corp. I never did.
Peace. Purpose. Prosperity.
Those are the 3 things I most looked for when I decided to give capsuleer life a try. And not just for me, I wanted all people to find these 3 things. No nation seemed to be having these same goals in mind, and it was unlikely that I could change them to my liking. If I wanted to find a nation where I would feel at home, I would have to create it myself. As a capsuleer, I would have the option to do so, therefor I took the chance to become one when it was offered to me.
Not long after obtaining my license, I found a company with policies that I was very comfortable with, and for a long time I felt at home there, something I knew I was lucky to find, as I had learned I am a bit of an oddball among capsuleers. Eventually though, those policies changed too much for my liking, and I felt like I was without a purpose and no longer contributed to something meaningful. It did not feel like home anymore. I did not want to be part of ‘just a company’ any longer.
For weeks, if not months, I searched for an organization to call my new home, but I could not find one. I came to the conclusion that, if there was one that suited my views, I could not find it. I would have to create my own home, my own nation. I would have to choose my own path, and see who I meet on it and who will follow.
I guess I never posted it because I would be better able to cope with finding no kindred spirits who would follow, or who I could follow, if I never raised my flag. I think I also feared I would be an inadequate leader, and that the home I tried to build would crumble.
So, if I were to give advise to the displaced, it would be to not lose hope, and to raise your flag. You may be surprised to find out that you’re not as alone as you thought, and that you can find a home, or (help) build one. It will crumble, but (almost?) everything does.
