xx thoughts from the past...
« Thread started on: Jan 21st, 2018, 12:15pm »

as part of a slave class assignment... naia has been going through old Forums... in her searching she came across this... and just thought it worth sharing.....

From January 9, 2006

Shadowglade-First_Sword 21:05:47 CST

Alright, the statement I wished to make was this:



GS has been in existance now for 7 years....in that time it has seen amazing growth, some amazing people come out of it's ranks, among them my fellow Captains on the Council, and some excellent slaves, many of whom are in attendance tonight. All of this has pleased me immensely to have been a part of it.



However, folks, GS has also seen it's fair amount of strife, ugliness, feuds (of which I and my Brother Kyoto were also guilty, or rather I was) and among them is something I call "social incest"....it's something that happens to ALL tight knit groups....people begin through familiarity with others to believe they have the right to know what is going on in the lives and dealings of their fellows, and this continues and continues before hard feelings develop and battle lines are drawn, and then the whole group of people becomes weakened by the discord that goes on......GS is and has suffered this often, right now, in my view we are enjoying a time when that isn't completely so in our home....but let me caution you all, and in doing so, also caution myself. Let us not grow lax, let us remember our compassion towards one another, and let us not look at our home as an "us and them" situation. We are ALL of GS, free and slave alike....and in my view we need to tighten our bonds, rather than weaken them. Conversely we should also ALWAYS be on guard against Strangers.....and as stated in the Homepages, Stranger, in Gorean, means the same as Enemy....



I want for us to be strong, Gorean, and for ALL of us to be able to enjoy our time in GS together.....



That is all I wished to state


Shadowglade-First_Sword 21:20:38 CST

Indeed, Laroona, lest my statement be misconstrued. I am not advocating being rude, or ignoring guests who come with honor to my home, nor am I stating we should be a bunch of Gorean elitists who look down upon someone who doesn't know, or follow our version of Gor as closely as we do....what I AM saying is that GS is our home, we should all take pride in it, and ALL of us, slave and free men, and free women should ALL seek to better our home, by welcoming new folks, lending a hand, being true to ourselves, and our natures, but also not be so quick to judge them

I enjoyed reading the old forum post from Shadowglade. When I was new to GS and Gor he took me under his wing. I was also helped by Laroona who was a GS slave called go~anna and a FW, Moonglow. I doubt I would have lasted very long with out their help.

From Luther's web site:

Port Kar has a number of other interesting quirks. It is one of the few cities on Gor that welcomes strangers. Port Kar will generally accept anyone into their city and does not immediately treat them as an enemy. Thus, it is a good refuge for outcasts from other cities. This may possibly change in the future due to the fact the city now possesses a Home Stone. The honor of the Home Stone may dictate that the city becomes more discriminate in who they permit entrance into their city.

That is the reason GS was set in a time before Port Kar had a homestone.

That was very informative, Xertog I have always wondered why We had not Homestone and yet had the Festival to celebrate the winning of the battle of 25 Se'Kara.

*smiling as she reads Master Xertog's words*

naia has enjoyed looking back through the old Forums and seeing words from many that she misses dearly, Yourself included.

A word of caution...

The more some of you people act like asses the faster guests or visitors will become "strangers". Any enemies you have are of your own creation.

I guess that means you should circle your wagons and protect your "home". You are a dying breed afterall.

Now I'll leave you alone again...at least for awhile.

Several quotes and "food for thought"

"You may judge and scorn the Goreans if you wish. Know as well, however, that they judge and scorn you. They fulfill themselves as you do not. Hate them for their pride and power. They will pity you for your shame and weakness." (Beasts of Gor, p.11)

"There is no single humanity, no single shirt, no correct pair of shoes, no uniform, even a gray one, that will fit all men. There are a thousand humanities possible. He who denies this sees only his own horizons. He who disagrees is the denier of difference, and the murderer of the better futures." (Savages of Gor, p.31)

"it is only a slave, in her vulnerability and helplessness, who can know what love truly is." (Kajira of Gor, p.48)
