Discordians, Dysnomians, Erisians, and others of much ilk…
Get up! (Get on up!)
KallistiCon 2008 is coming – June 20-22!
Every year this millennium, we’ve gotten together in the Bay Area in California. We’re not just rehashing gags from the Principia – we’re moving forward, practicing chaos in the world.
For the last seven years, we’ve eaten and drank together, we’ve made friends with strangers in traffic, we’ve had rituals and blessings, we’ve been weird in public, and we’ve been human with each other. Weâ€™ve found the freaks who thought they were the only ones, and taught them – and ourselves – what tribe is supposed to mean.
Some of you will say: “But Discordians are supposed to be disorganized.”
Didn’t you know that’s just a put-on?
Some of you will say weâ€™re doing it wrong, and only you know the right way to follow Eris.
That’s OK. Just quit talking about it and start doing it.
Some will no doubt repeat the tired cliche: “We Discordians tend to stick apart.”
Of course we do, but sticking apart is more fun when we do it together.
Throw out your old memes. Greg and Kerry are gone, Bob Wilson is gone, Camden Benares and the other old-timers are gone. Let’s honor and respect them. Let’s learn from their lives and their teachings. But let’s stop trying to be them.
The Principia is your grandma’s Discordia. Being an inside joke on the net is your daddy’s. What’s yours? And who are you doing it with?
