Frequently Asked Questions

February 7, 2013

Q: What exactly are The Bastards?

A: We are a group of people that have decided to take on the job of getting people to see the “Inconvenient Truths” of the world.

Q: Whats an “Inconvenient Truth”?

A: An Inconvenient Truth is a truth that is so horrid it takes all your will power to not run screaming into the night. it’s a truth that upsets your beliefs and previously held moral code. Basically it’s a truth that proves that everything you think you know is wrong.

Q: Why would you do something so hideous to someone?

A: The truth, no matter how alarming or shocking, will set you free. Once you come to grips with the fact that your life has no meaning to the very people you elect to office, life can become very liberating. The problem with the world today is that it wants to ignore the shadows and dark corners. Its better to turn away from atrocities than to admit they are taking place.

Q: Why should I listen to you?

A: Good question. Honestly I don’t want you to take what we say as 100% truth without researching stuff yourself. The problem with the world today is that people look at one source and call it a day whether that source is full of shit or not. Look how many people believed the War of the Worlds radio broadcast was real. Our job is to plant a seed in your head that will hopefully get you to start thinking for yourself. Stop trusting the mainsteam news sources and start digging for yourselves.

Q: Fair enough. Why should I care? After all I work 40 hours a week, have kids, and frankly, Im just too busy to care about worldly affairs.

A: Ah yes. The “Im too busy” excuse. Heres the deal, nobody cares until something directly affects them. Nobody cared about the gun free zones until children suddenly started getting mowed down at the one place people thought was safe. Nobody cared about the economy until it started costing them their jobs and their homes. That being said, if you care BEFORE something directly affects you, you might have time to keep yourself from getting hit. Whether its with loss of rights, job, home, you name it. Preparation isn’t the sole territory of the Grizzly Adams types.

Q: I see your point. Why do you write with the harsh language?

A: Because you’ll pay attention. People these days are too distracted to catch subtlety. If you give them something that’s direct and perhaps even abrasive, they will pay attention. They may not like it, but they will sure as hell pay attention.

Q: Why call yourselves Bastards?

A: That has been covered in our “Why The Bastards?” post. However for the sake of posterity lets cover it here. One of the definitions of the word Bastard is a person who is mean or disagreeable. Given the current state of the world we find ourselves not only disagreeing with the direction but with the people running it. In my eyes a Bastard is a warrior for the common man/woman. Not afraid to stand up and fight for whats right even if no one else cares enough to do the same.

Q: How do I become a Bastard?

A: If you fight for the rights of the common man/woman you already are a Bastard. Being a writer doesn’t make you a bastard. Being a Bastard is an attitude. It’s a little bit of deserved swagger that helps you stay the course. Consider us the Anonymous of the Blogging/Journalism world, anyone can be one.

Q: Ok How Do I write for you?

A: Once a month we will have a special guest contributor. All content must be approved before it gets posted. We are here dealing with serious issues (albeit sometimes in a comical way) not looking for crap Kardashian updates. At any rate all persons interested can message me on The Bastards facebook page or through wordpress.
