HEADLINES: THE NINE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNKNOWN [?] TRADING COMPANY - BANJO WEEK.

CARMI, NEW CONTINENT - An Unprecedented Two-Day Event in Celebration of the Nine Year Anniversary of the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company was held throughout the South of MineZ last week, particularly in the areas of Meridian, Pravus, Portsmouth, Romero and Carmi. The two-day event was to catch as many members of the Empire & Commonwealth available to the clan who may be busy one day but not busy in another. Regardless, much of our clan was busy with their own issues on the weekend, but nearly twenty individuals of good Company stock made it to the party in one form or another. Some late, some early, all participated.

The main attraction was the much anticipated album, that was originally going to be eight songs but was later released to have nine songs in total. For this, Irishkaiser apologized for the lies and misinformation that he promised less than what was delivered. It was later deemed serendipity because nine years and nine songs matched.

The Event on the First Day was beset by Premium and Admin onlookers, described by citizens and members as both curious and envious of the Company's continued existence, her innovations and quality of life. The result was that a bunch of coloreds bullied shrauger, who was leading the party at the time. Shrauger, being a civilized Regupean of Western upbringing, ignored the lower races and minded his own business like a normal person, but this later led to his eventual demise below the PvE line by abusing premiums who used the blunderbuss glitch to, like a dirty Middle Easterner from Al Hasa, treacherously murder someone. It is expected from their race. Whites and Premiums cannot live together and only through the genocide of the Premiums and Admins can the Regulars live in security. Irishkaiser remarked that the defeat of their strongest clans in 2020 by UTC members of equal numbers and equal equipment probably made them realize they cannot defeat us from the front, so they stab us in the back. Shrauger was later heard to say certain words in the manner of a historical Austrian artist: "Gradually, I began to hate them."

The Second Day, more of the same was expected with more Intolerant Rainbows coming in hurling insults and harassment towards a largely apathetic UTC. One mild and soft-spoken citizen however, being so incensed at their insolence, spoke out against the premium lies, finally challenging their incessant statements and defending the Company and her Members as a general force for good in the game. The once silent, good-natured individual almost came close to swearing at them, in a rare display of emotion.

Gradually the worthless Premiums and Admins left, and the party was left in peace - which was quite a boon. Irishkaiser himself remarked: "No Gays, Happy Days" in reference to the Weezer song "Buddy Holly" and the show Happy Days. In here, the party was much better enjoyed by the Company who were finally able to hear the songs and events in peace and the fireworks was able to be finally launched.

Most that unfortunate the Muhreenz were in charge, cause these debil donuts forgot the visual range needed while recording Fireworks being launched. It was described as blue and white by those who were more forward though. A fitting cap-off for nine years of the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company. Also, a Citoyen asked for some recordings. We'll get to it eventually.

EDITORIAL - The Thirst for Purpose  

Irishkaiser - In an age of inanity, trends and movements I've noticed that in spite of many of them being worthless, many of the movements of the current age fulfill a need of purpose for an empty and wandering youth who find no satisfaction in their lives - so they take up a cause, no matter how petty or even self-harming, all to feel a need for a goal.

In the past, much of a person's station had been decided. If you were a peasant, a warrior, a merchant, etc., chances are you weren't going to switch your class anytime soon. This social stability brought a sort of contentment in most people's lives. The social order was later uprooted by radical changes in thought and society in the form of the Enlightenment in Europe, revolution in the Americas and Nationalism in the Far East. The rise of nation-states however in the competing global environment for power and dominance filled the need for purpose by telling individuals that they should give their lives for the betterment of their country - sometimes in a twisted glorification of death through military institutions.

If you were a businessman, you were a businessman for your nation and your business must do its best to outcompete others. If you were a soldier, you must be the best damn soldier out there. If you were a farmer, you must make sure your food not only feeds the state but enriches the state. This later gave way to the World Wars where many all over the world were driven by a sense of purpose whatever it was, with the last great crusades being the aftermath of the Cold War.

The fight for Democracy or Communism gave individuals a flag to rally around and these ideals put to use the boundless energy of the youth of a nation. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, there was no real enemy anywhere for the Western world, and the aimless people just dithered... Gradually, I noticed they began to look for things to fight for and new ways to fill their need for an identity and so today we are left with a hodgepodge of irrational radicals looking to die for Black Lives Matter, Donald Trump or some LGBT crap no one should care about.

Instead of enjoying the stability of the hard-won fruits of our forefathers, we instead look for that struggle that will help give purpose and meaning to our lives. Unfortunately, for many people - their causes are weak and self-harming nowadays. Many are just that desperate for purpose.

But I fear there is a new Cold War rising. The Free World will once again be put into arms, and if she does not find herself ready to meet the threat of resurgent Communism, strengthened by adopting Capitalist-Socialism, then the Reds will win this war and all your petty squabbles will be meaningless as you all lose.

Oh well.
