A quintessential walk in the future by way of the past evokes visions of what upcoming generations will be faced with having ignored all the warnings of today’s free thinkers. Written by Les Visible
It was the time of religious wars. It was a time of materialism and intellectual darkness. It was a time of epidemic moral compromise and the end justifying the means by whatever means. It was a time of the worship of the transitory and the elevation of drunken ignorance over the thirst for truth. Truth was a refugee in flight on a violent night.
Patrick Willis, aka “Snordster”, is a South African agitprop artist, art director, voice artist, film editor and media consultant. From his heady days as a tracker in the elite South African Special Forces 101 Battalion to the present day, he has always questioned the machine, the government, as a free man on the land. A citizen soldier in it’s truest sense, he fights back with his high tech modern weapons, his communication skills.
An outsider from an early age, he has crossed swords with autocracy with his countercultural journalism. Having spent almost 4 years with WTN News until 1989, he realised that mainstream journalism was dead, and a new audience was needed. The one million views Snordster YouTube channel has become notorious for its outrageous antics, rebellious, anti-authoritarian attitude, and unconventional reporting style to the delight of all of us.
After fighting on his own for many years, born out of his early years as Special Forces tracker, he has joined up with the merry band of rogue elements and seasoned warriors of Veterans Today as our creative arts editor. We are all veterans of the alternative media battle to claim some worldwide respect for the 4th estate away from the corrupt, penetrated and compromised corporate media empire that has become a national security threat in its own way to all of us.
