I Have Been a Fool

Malik Shabazz

1,770 views

I have made many mistakes in my CN career, the biggest mistakes I have made have stemmed from naivete. At the expense of my own reputation, I aligned myself with a certain someone who at one point I admired. Because in that someone: I saw someone who was destined for greatness, someone who defied the reactionaries and the upper-crust in word and deed, and someone who wasn't afraid to stand up for what he believed in. I followed in your footsteps, and even when we didn't agree about a lot of things, I was willing to understand your viewpoints if you were willing to do the same to me.

Many people in CN dislike me. I think that this is because they do not understand me. So in order for the people of CN to understand who Loki Laufeyson is, I asked you for an interview in a PM and you arrogantly did not reply. You drove the dagger further in my back by throwing me under the bus and insulting me on the OWF. I would have never expected any of this but it is what I get for being naive. The purpose of this blog is to tell you, and the people of CN, that I can no longer continue my association with you. You have sold out to the reactionaries. The events of the last few weeks have taught me a lot of things. things that are true IRL and in CN: Trust no one and stay on your own side.

I do not hate you, I don't even dislike you. I wish you the best of luck in your "revolution", as my own struggle continues.

-Loki

Loki, I spent alot of time over these months trying to help you, and I encouraged you in going to join NPO. But you didnt follow through because you didnt like answering questions, and decided to go rogue against GOONS. No amount of reasoning could deter you from your path.

You have a hard time with patience, and this was reflected in HB, in the Party, and on the NPO forum. And now on the Mercy Board. You have certain skills, but your lack of patience is your undoing.

Theres nothing more I can do to help you at this point. I wasnt going to join you on a futile side quest that would not bear fruit in my larger plans. The fact is, you deserve the consequences of your choices. You have placed yourself at odd with my revolution.

My inbox is packed these days, and I have a limited schedule to prioritize my CN time with. No offense was meant by ignoring you, but at times I accidentally ignore others too, and I literally have better things to do with my time than assist you on your GOONS quest.

Best of luck Loki. Youve burned too many bridges and lack the patience to be a valuable asset anymore. Perhaps one day when your patience is tempered, but for now, good luck on the mercy board.

If you wanted to help me, the least you would have done is put aside politics and understand my mission and where I was coming from. Even if I have been irrational or impatient (and I have), it has been out of frustration.

I did not ask for your assistance, I merely asked you to use the platform you have to help people to understand my mission.

Except you don't have a mission outside of some petty vendetta that is pointless. You have repeatedly shown that you feel superior to damn near everyone and above even doing the minimum in simply joining an alliance. People understand you better than you think and that is why they don't like you. Get off your high horse and show some damn humility and maybe, just maybe you will find some kind of sympathy.

Have you spoken to me outside of the OWF? If not then you cannot even begin to understand who I am, or what my mission is.

I have, and your mission was to destroy GOONS. I told you to look into alliances that didn't like GOONS and just let others handle it instead (because there are cycles etc), but you didn't listen.

There are alliances who hate GOONS, but many of those alliances do not share my vision. Destroying GOONS was only a small part of my mission anyway.

Trust no one?

Man. I help remove your sanction, get you into two different trade circles, and help you when ever you ask for it. I guess you're not the only one disappointed. You only come to me for help, and I think i've only ever heard a thank you once.

Thank you for everything. I probably haven't taken the time to do that, because of everything that has been going on, but I really am grateful for everything. :)

I feel like an a-hole for all of this.

Loki - listen to this man:

There are 10,500 nations currently on CN. It's not OUR job to get to know you, it's YOUR job to get to know us.

THAT is why you should indeed join some alliance (of over 20 people at least), have that allianc teach you what this 10,500 member community is like . This includs the various unwritten rules that you keep breaking and getting in trouble for and thus people keep taking advantage of you and laugh at you both behind and in front of you. If you want people to stop - then get to know the actual "community standards" rules that our community functions under. Once you get that - THEN go for your revolution.

Regarding GOONS:

GOONS have been annoying people on CN since before I even logged on and I logged on over 5 years ago. They are infamous for having people hate them. They raid constantly and I personally have NEVER met anyone who has experienced that and honestly likes them. However the majority are intelligent enough to at least learn how CN works and either gain some real power or join an equal sized alliance (or better) that feels the same way about GOONS before doing anything about it. Otherwise you just entertain them and that is a sad sad thing when a person's intention is the opposite.

I don't think you get what this is all about in the grand scheme of his actions.

Why doe she, or anyone have to follow the "unwritten" rules of CN? That notion just reinforces what he has talked about, and everyone telling him to join an alliance, and learn these rules are just not getting what he has said, or has been saying.

You may want him to learn these standards before going for his revolution, but it's a stupid notion to learn something that you want to change, and you don't want to really adhere to.

The reason people don't endorse things like this is because it is petty and practically nobody would advise it. That's why people whip out "join an alliance and learn the ropes". If Loki wants to live his CN life in ire, he is free to do as he pleases. But he should know that his actions have very clear consequences, that may or may not be incredibly harsh. That's how this game works. For him to get up here and cry that he is misunderstood is false. Plenty people understand and disagree entirely with the premise that he presents to them.

Loki can want to change whatever he wants. Does not mean it will happen, nor as Rey has stated, will he do nothing more than piss people off. He is neither charming nor persuasive in the slightest. All you get is a bunch of imbecilic insults, barely-baked schemes, and this haughty sense of entitlement bordering on delusions of grandeur.

I don't see the point of joining an alliance when most of them have no ambition outside of existing and being political pawns. I have greater plans and schemes then being a mere toy soldier for a larger alliance. $%&@ "playing the game", unlike the rest of you I do what I want. I am a young player with ambition, and people don't like that.

Looks like GOONS will give you lenient terms, and methrage will provide you with rebuilding aid in March. I hope you will have learned from this lesson Loki. Without patience, you will never succeed. If you desire to lead, you must first follow.

Why follow if there are no leaders?

When people are too scared to step outside of the box, you have to do it yourself. I mean isn't that what everyone has been saying? I should do it myself?
