OK, so metal = romanticism, which means an esoteric vision of life and living as Blake, Milton, Wordsworth, Keats, and Brahms did infested with a bit of post-post-modernism like Linkola and Kaczinsky. OK so far.
How do I live this way? Modern society seems to control everything around me.
I've thought of it in terms of these general silos:
1. Self. I need a job that isn't hell, with enough money to live and raise a family if I want to, and stay out of the ghetto or jail.
2. Society. I need a way to make change so that I don't feel helpless.
3. Separatism. I need a way to gather others who think this way, nurture them, and bring them together to start up a community in the wilds and in the meantime support each other.
4. Art. Not everyone is an artist, as the last ten years of black metal proved. That means that even if I teach myself to be a killer shredder on the mean six strings, I might never make great music, only technically great music. But I need some outlet here.
5. Spirituality. I am happiest when I'm not thinking of myself. Honest spirituality seems to me to be a pagan practice which celebrates process and not material or fixed ideas. I think this means celebrating with others from my local community, and if I'm in the wrong community, to start another way.
6. In the meantime, do no harm to the important things. I recycle, but more importantly, I don't use much. I reject things I don't need. I don't participate in stupid wasteful activities. I have no illusions that others will do the same.
This looks like a good complete list, although the details need some fleshing out.
It doesn't look that hard to accomplish. Especially if a few people bond together and use each other's labor to achieve the same goals.
