There’s no doubt about it: folks who follow The Pipe Cottage march to the beat of a different drum. The fact is not lost on me that traditional approaches to life, including pipe smoking, are not in the majority these days. I write this article as a way of expressing my admiration and appreciation for each person who decided to join me at Pipe Cottage Social after my decision to leave the main social media outlets. Rather than leaving social media entirely, which I certainly debated, I decided to do my own thing. Hence Pipe Cottage Social. 

So why do I think Pipe Cottage Social matters? As many of you know, I am not a modern man. What that simply means is that I do not believe in the substandard ideas of our time that teach we should accept any and all lifestyles and beliefs. American society, including the pipe smoking community, is suffering through this nonsensical woke revolution that seeks to destroy anything that resembles traditional standards and understandings of right and wrong. Before I left mainstream social media, Pipe Cottage content received more views and attention than 95 percent of anyone creating pipe and pipe tobacco related material. There’s a reason for that. I have never shied away from what I believe to be true and what I believe pipe smoking means in the larger context of a well-lived life. The tobacco pipe is a vehicle for meditation, reflection, thoughtful living, and even prayer. All of these things are desperately needed in our time, and desperately challenged by the woke crowd. 

It has come to my attention in recent days and weeks that a large portion of the American pipe smoking world despises me and my content. Most of this is happening behind my back, but I have noticed intense vitriol about my videos and articles, especially those that mention a traditional Christian approach to life and pipe smoking. Not unlike other conservatives and Christians in our society, I have been publicly accused of hatred, bigotry, and intolerance because of my stance against modern liberalism and my stand for the definition of truth as defined in the Scriptures. I say what I believe in my content, and I am not in the habit of “calling out” other presenters when I disagree with them. That said, others have made me aware of the large degree to which all things Pipe Cottage is being vilified among and throughout a liberal stream of “new age” pipe smoking enthusiasts. I no longer believe in a brotherhood of the leaf, as many have called it. I believe in traditional American culture, which is based in the teachings of Christ. As the Southern writer Richard Weaver once said, a culture can only survive if it is willing to defend itself against other cultures that resent it. 

It astounds me to think of the degree to which American businessmen, politicians, and influencers will remain silent on issues of tremendous importance for fear that what they say might be bad for business. Folks, if the leading voices of the Founding generation were willing to sacrifice their homes, income, peace, safety, and lives for the creation of this republic, then we must be willing to make sacrifices as well. The survival of the Constitution and the original intent of the Founders is in danger. And that danger is now touching each hobby, sport, career, community, and pastime in our nation. This includes pipe smoking. 

The Pipe Cottage will remain as a source of information, entertainment, and content for those who are devoted to the traditional, gentlemanly art of pipe smoking. Unfortunately, such content will probably not be welcome among the growing number of new pipe smokers, especially younger ones, simply because my approach to the pipe and its role as part of the good life is growing increasingly out of vogue. There’s much more to life than pipes and tobacco, but I do not invite any hobby into my life that does not compliment and promote a quality and cultured existence. This is not bigotry or hatred. This is living by a higher standard than is currently accepted by modern society. 

Thank you for your support of The Pipe Cottage.

    Brother, I have found your site and channel as a recent pipe smoker, and I love it precisely because of the very aspects for which you are being attacked. I am conservative, American, academic, but first and foremost I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I look forward to getting to know you and others in this venue.

    Your closing thoughts sum it up very well: “This is not bigotry or hatred. This is living by a higher standard than is currently accepted by modern society.”

    As a man in my late middle age years, with two young grandsons, the degradation of societal standards over the past 25 years or so is saddening, however the speed to which we have devolved in recent years has been amazing.

    A good essay worth reading if you haven’t already is The Fate of Empires by Sir John Glubb.

    I often wonder, in the last few years, if this country is at the point of no return!?!?
    Alan, I find myself seeing you as an extreme personality, but then realize I appreciate your willingness to go to the line in the sand and hold your ground. I fight with the idea of being a Sinner in my own ways and feeling I shouldn’t judge or cast the first stone in fear of the good Lord putting me in my place. We now live in a world where anything goes. I find it hard to comment on others actions when I’m also one to stray from strict Christian principals from time to time. Judgement of others is a tricky issue in which I struggle. How do we get back to the sound moral days of the past? I don’t know. I truly believe technology has been a big part of the moral decline of this country along with many other factors. Life is a challenge in the way of staying true to God’s way! I appreciate you, Alan and hope you find true success in you new format. I enjoy your thoughts on life and respect you greatly! Stay true and love others at the same time. God bless you Alan!

    I would only disagree with one thing.

    I think this swing to the left is creating a next generation that is so far right 1950 will look left leaning. Take hope, we will be persecuted but like David we will conquer. Modern “churches” are dieing. Prideful people are not looking to be saved. Look at the rise in patriarchy, trad wife movement. The whole world is moving right. Most elections in Europe are going patriot. Look at Italy, G Meloni is conservative and the most popular prime minister in the EU.

    Have hope. Many of us are bringing wife’s and kids home. For me it is pre Vatican 2 Latin mass every Sunday and we are stepping out of all things that don’t support our values. My kids will know the civil war as mr. Foote saw it. Thanks for your good work. Looking forward to many more good pipes with my good Dr H

    Wow. I have not noticed any negative comments regarding your content. I guess that the part of the YTPC that I’ve found myself “hanging out with” is the part that has generally like-minded views as we do here. While I had heard that there was this growing “hipster” or “new age” pipe community growing, I really hadn’t run into it much at all. I have to say that I agree with probably 98% percent of what you have to say. And usually that other 2% pretty much just comes down to the differences between Protestant and Catholic theology. But we are in a war for our culture and our civilization. And, “When a maniac is at the door, feuding brothers reconcile.”

    What I have appreciated most about your content is that the centrality of messages have really not about the pipe at all, It’s similar to how Dewayne at Dry Creek most always has a pipe or cigar, but his content not about tobacco, or horses for that matter. Rather, those things are accoutrements that punctuate the thoughtfulness of the message. I find that your paradigm and worldviews are very similar to mine – religion, homesteading, conservatism, pipes – what you often refer to as “the old way”. These messages are being increasingly flagged, demonetized and buried by the algorithms, so your decision to leave on your terms was brilliant. I understand you may have shortened your reach, but I believe that those who are meant to find you will. Like the man said, “if you build it, they will come”. I am not leaving social media, as I have somehow managed to avoid it in the first place, so I’m not sure how active I’ll be on Pipe Cottage Social part of this initiative, but I will certainly continue to watch your videos here as often as you post them.

    You know the world is tyrannical when truth becomes a novelty. Because your words are expressing true and authentic American/Western cultural values, it seems to me that you would want to be able to reach as many people as possible. So would it not be beneficial to have as large of a reach as possible even if meant having to put up with YouTube’s policies? This is why I disagree with your decision to leave all social media. Even though YouTube’s algorithms mistreat, sensor, and suppress content creators with your values and opinions, It seems that you’re words would have a greater affect on modern society on a global scale if you also posted your videos on YouTube and Rumble.

    I hope you will reconsider your stance on this issue because the world needs to hear more people like yourself who are pushing back, in an articulate and logical manner (as opposed to an emotional one) on this cancer called Cultural Marxism that has infected every aspect of modern life.

    A part of me wants to disagree with you as I am contrary by nature, but I really can’t find any particular point with which I disagree. I have not really seen that much vitriol directed at you, but I am sure it is there. I guess I haven’t really looked for it. I don’t really peruse that much social media because it’s largely a human sewer.

    That having been said, I hope you have contingency plans for alternate servers in the case they come after you and deplatform your site here just because they hate you. I think that might be coming. Web hosting platforms love to virtue signal.

    I think you might have hit on a topic of interest that you should mine for future videos. There are certainly many here like myself who view themselves not so much as Conservatives in the Neo-Con sense but as traditional folks who see the value in traditional ways.

    By that I don’t just mean the political sphere. I mean traditional crafts and skills. I know I have taught myself to weave baskets, make traditional sausage, and all manner of skills modern man has forgotten how to do. I realize this is primarily a pipe based thing, but I think you could do some interesting videos on traditional skills. Just a thought.

    Tolerance is a word misused in the church today in my opinion. While we are to love our neighbor and disciple to the world around us, we are not to tolerate, or in any way be accepting of, sin. If Yahweh was accepting or tolerant of sin there would have been no need for Christ. Yet we preach Christ crucified for the redemption of those whom the father has given to him. There can be no sin in the presence of a Holy God and there is only one way we can be made right to stand before Him. I think there is a severe deficiency within the church today on the emphasis of the holiness of God and what that means.
    Continue unashamed in your efforts. We will continue with you. “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also.” Let it be said of every Christian that we have been accused of turning the world upside down.

    Your content is welcome and should be shared, as we all know this world is far from heading in the right direction as proven evidence is displayed by people in power. Also those people who believe that social media is there for them to give there uneducated point of view, and disagree with anyone or anything that offends them, or doesn’t suit their woke ideology. “you know who I’m talking about “
    Unfortunately as you know a world without the moral law of God in it constitutional governing is a world in decline.
    The one thing we all should do is to keep calling out these nonsensical ideals that are trying to be forced down our throats. We all need to remember that God is ultimately in control. Not these political puppets of the Left.

    I understand why you might feel that the next generation of pipe smokers might not like your approach, but I feel you may have thrown the baby out with the bath water. A relatively new pipe smoker myself at age 50ish, I know of several new pipe smokers in their early 20s that follow your YouTube channel with regularity. I understand the need and desire to prune things out that are not productive, I hope you change your mind on the decision to remove yourself and your videos from YouTube.
    There are other channels that I follow that also post content that YouTube does not appreciate. Often such channels will have a portion of a video on YouTube with a lead-in to something on a separate communication vector such as gab, rumble, or some other social media platform such as the one you have created. This allows them to maintain their presence to draw in new individuals without maintaining the level of restrictions that YouTube places on the content.
    Now understand, I fully comprehend the need to prune things out from time to time and focus on what is really working. I just appreciate your content and would like to see you stop focusing on the naysayers and instead focus on the people who are there looking forward to your videos, listening to what you have to share, and who may be influenced in a positive way that may not be possible if you are not available on those platforms. I didn’t know that people were negative about your videos, and quite frankly I don’t care. When I so seed I am not given the responsibility to stop sewing amongst the rocks, but rather I keep sowing seed.

    I pray that whatever you do, you don’t allow yourself to focus on the Stony ground, but rather recognize that some of what you say will fall on good ground.

    Blessings from a fellow Christian, a brother in Christ, who happens to also enjoy the pipe!

    I truly feel our country is under attack. Not by soldiers or weapons. But by undermining our ethical and virtuous way of life. If someone was going to take over a country they could first get people to hate their country and vilify it’s history and historical figures. Then de-masculate the men who will be the ones who would defend the country and masculate the women who cannot truly be men. Introduce vile and sinful ways of living. Destroy the family unit. Cause division and civil unrest and maybe even civil war. Promote drug and alcohol use. Get rid of Christian religion which fosters hope and strength and unity. Sung Tzu’s The Art Of War describes this very thing.
    Now they are going after our children to brainwash them into their doctrine.
    We know this was all written long ago that this would happen. This is the precursor of the coming of the King. Keep the faith. Stay the coarse. Keep your eye on the prize. Pray constantly. Pray to be the vessels our King so desperately needs.

Like you have mentioned, the world is upside down and it is heartbreaking. I try to talk to kids while working, and now I get responded with, ” we don’t talk to the police” as early as 7yo children. Keep up the positive messages and hopefully soon you can pick back up on the books videos. No matter how hard to try, remember someone is always going to hate, and normally it is out of jealousy. Take care. With support and respect from Virginia….. Myke

    You have my support. I am a traditionalist and it pains me to see where we are as a society.

    I may not agree with every comment you express. I do support your right as an American to express all that that you hold true. All without the viperous attacks you say have come your way. I have enjoyed every video you have made.
    Lots of Support
