The Remnant is coming for you...!

I've been reading some classic texts of the "Old Right." Albert J. Nock's classic rant, Our Enemy, the State is a refreshing waft of unpolluted air in the age of egalitarianism and big-government conservatism, which I loath. Nock was an elitist, in the best sense of that word. He believed that only by finding, then educating, a "remnant" of the educable few who wanted plain truth could society be turned around from its collectivist and egalitarian march to servitude.

One sentence, however, struck me as unintentionally funny:

"You do not know, and will never know, who the Remnant are, nor where they are, nor how many there are, nor what they are doing or will do. Two things you know, and no more; first, that they exist; and second, that they will find you."

Good heavens! That sounds like the tag line for a horror movie! "No one can escape the Remnant. They will find you!"

I can almost see the trailer in my head.
