No new Citizen Cain episodes will be made in the foreseeable future. This was initially Conan’s decision. Instead of creating new Citizen Cain episodes, we’re investing our time and resources into being prepared for the coming hard times; as well as our own personal side projects and hobbies. The work thereof has kept us from making any formal announcement before tonight. While Conan is much more skilled with the technical aspects of production, and certainly more talented in facilitating a conversation about liberty than I could be, it may not seem like I have much say in the matter. However, I completely support him, and his reasons, to wit:
Keene is a lost cause; taxes are continually raised, societal dependence on a personal level is encouraged and enabled—indeed, it’s seen as the only thing one is expected to rely on. Crony-capitalism with a folksy small-town veneer doesn’t fool me for a second, and is exhausting to belabor on a weekly basis. Watching and translating the neurotic virtue-signaling of “city elders” who can’t help but behave the way they do is a very bad way to spend your free time if you have a job that involves any type of customer service, which I do.
I’ve lived in Keene for eight years now, as an emigrant from California, still very grateful to be out of there and away from their astronomical taxes and burdensome government. But after so much observation of current events, and casual research into the history of Keene; I’ve come to realize that I didn’t really leave a place ruined by big government. Instead I moved to a place where the parasite of big government still feasts on a healthy host, but not for long. Keene is a lost cause; big government is a surrender to the cause of civilization; no matter who is in charge of it. (And yes, for some there’s no difference between “big government” and just “government,” the distinction of which may make me an evil statist, on par with the worst imaginable. All I can say is that I’m aware of your jimmie-rustle, but the lure of an adjective that can modify a noun is too strong for me to resist.)
In the future, there could be new Citizen Cain episodes; perhaps from a different town which runs more responsibly. However, It’ll be a very boring show because of that so you probably won’t like it.
