The Paladin champions the causes of those who seek truth, justice and love (yes, love – don’t get squeamish). We are against political correctness, which is usually based neither on truth nor honest justice, as we believe in rationality and common sense.
The Paladin is for Truth, Justice, and Love … without the B.S.
Historically, the Paladins were the foremost 12 warriors of Charlemagne’s court around 800AD. Charlemagne united most of Western Europe during the early Middle Ages and laid the foundations for modern France and Germany. The Paladin was a class of Warrior that was fully devoted to kindness and ridding the world of evil. Paladins feared nothing.
According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a Paladin is “a leading champion of a cause”.
ThePaladin.org is against immigration for immigration’s sake (it does not necessarily improve an economy; there is no correlation between population density and wealth). Immigration to ‘improve economies’ and ’cause diversity’ is just further political correctness to be ‘nice’ or achieve other aims without thinking about the future of a society, and in particular that of its current citizens.
Regarding diversity – a quick look at the large numbers of ethnic concentrations in any major city globally shows us that “birds of a feather keep together” – integration is not the normal pattern.
ThePaladin.org supports immigration of highly skilled labour which helps a host country, which adds value to it. We are against mindless immigration which just adds more people competing for jobs, university places, business, buying homes, and space in nature. We want the lives of our brothers and sisters to improve, but firstly that is about the quality of life of people already living somewhere – not adding more people who can remain in their home countries (genuine refugees excepted).
The Paladin is, last but not least, for the love of life itself. We want the great outdoors to remain “great”, and not filled up or ruined irreversibly.
So, What’s This Winnie-the-Pooh Stuff All About?
If you came to us from a search engine, you may have seen our tagline ‘The Paladin – Justice, Love…and Winnie-the-Pooh’. What are we talking about Winnie the Pooh for?
Winnie the Pooh, the famous children’s book, has lots of psychological undertones, and has even been examined in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. There is an analysis which suits the way we think, and supports both conservative political leanings and Truth, Justice and Love. The ‘Tao of Pooh‘ by Benjamin Hoff. It was on the New York Times best seller list for 49 weeks, and is worth reading.
This quote in the book is relevant to the psychology of capitalism:
“The play-it-safe pessimists of the world never accomplish much of anything, because they don’t look clearly and objectively at situations, they don’t recognize or believe in their own abilities to overcome even the smallest amount of risk.”
The text below, talks about the uniqueness and sanctity and value of each of us, i.e. individuality:
A fish can’t whistle and neither can I.” said Pooh. There’s nothing wrong with not being able to whistle, especially if you’re a fish. But there can be lots of things wrong with blindly trying to do what you aren’t designed for. Unfortunately, some people aren’t so wise, and end up causing big trouble for themselves and others.
The wise know their limitations; the foolish do not. To demonstrate what we mean, we can think of no one better than Tigger, who doesn’t know his limitations (‘Tiggers’ can do everything’), which brings him in lots of trouble. Piglet instead knows his limitations and that’s what makes him sometimes more brave than you would expect from such a small animal. So, the first thing we need to do is recognize and trust our own Inner Nature, and not lose sight of it. Inside the Bouncy Tigger is the Rescuer who knows the Way, and in each of us is something Special, and that we need to keep.
As we have likely recognized by now, no two snowflakes, trees, or animals are alike. No two people are the same, either. Everything has its own Inner Nature.
The Tao of Pooh may change your view of life.
