Volk on Freedom
Oleg has a message for folks who think calm words and reassurances re peaceful intent will keep the statists at bay.
The hard truth is that nothing short of tyranny's eternal cure is going to stop the anti-gun totalitarians.
I didn't get into last week's brouhaha as I was on the road, except to comment at The Smallest Minority:
To those "reasonable gun owners" dampening their knickers over Vanderboegh's writings, I'd say:
Anyone who wants violent revolution when there are other viable alternatives has gotta be out of their minds.
But what if - just perchance - there's been a revolution already going on for at least 75 years?
A revolution dedicated to the proposition that all men (other than the nomenklatura, of course) shall be rendered equal - by force if necessary, but more likely by the drip-by-drip of Gramscian/Fabian socialist incrementalism.
What if those revolutionaries have already captured 100% of the government elementary and high schools, 95% of the institutions of higher education, 2/3 or better of the state and federal legislatures, > 85% of the state and federal judicial seats, and 95%+ of the mainstream media outlets?
What if these collectivists, in their revolutionary zeal to extirpate individualism wherever found, were able to capture the White House and both Houses of Congress, and shortly thereafter reassert the so-called "liberal majority" on SCOTUS?
Having done so, what if the federal revolutionary collectivists planned, along with their local and state minions, to impose European-style state socialism buttressed with a technological security surveillance apparatus synthesizing data from both public and private sources on each citizen of the former Republic?
Would those citizens then, in the faint final glimmers of liberty's twilight, be morally and ethically justified in saying publicly:
When you come to arrest and imprison me and my friends, I will evade and then kill
- you who have been sent
- you agency management types who sent them
- you political bosses and functionaries who established and funded the agencies responsible for the arrests
- you media types who have called for the "end to gun violence"
- you Judendienstordnung "reasonable gun owners" who thought it would be best to "police our own"?
Would it be time then to dare to publicly utter the words "back the f**k off"?
Or might that just "scare people"?
There are today in this country hundreds of thousands of men, women, and young folks who will not be enslaved - even at the price of their lives.
Those are the 3%.
They are real.
And they will fight.
Soft warriors believe that political action and education will stop the transnational socialist push against private arms ownership.
That belief assumes that meaningful political action at the ballot box is possible.
Ask the Irish, French, and Dutch how well that approach worked in defeating the tranzis' European Constitution.
Not very well, from this writer's OP.
The current conflict between individualism and collectivism in this country is not going to end without widespread violence, unless the collectivists relinquish their goal of controlling every aspect of their subjects' lives.
Think that's going to happen?
If you do, I have two speeches from the past four months for you to read - one delivered in Boston and one delivered in Berlin.
The statists think they can win at an acceptable cost.
The "peace at any price" gun owners in this country, like their peers in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, are correctly cited by the tranzis as proof of their hypothesis.
And thus, the day of reckoning moves closer.
Lesson for the day:
That's what they do.
And freedom fighters fight.
Sic semper tyrannis.
