If Showing Up Is More Than Half the Battle, Where Would You Be?


Contemplate this tale from GardenSERF.

Then work through the consequences of a nation filled with those upperclassmen.

Do you understand?

Ok, I'm hep. When and where would you like me to show up? I drove from south Florida to attend RTC in Greensboro. I assure you, I will be where ever the rally point is. Can you assure me that there will be others in abundance? A half dozen guys doesn't make me feel very secure. I don't mind dying for a cause. I just don't want to commit suicide. Sorry. Please forgive me. I'm just really concerned that I'm only one of the six. So far, Ive seen nothing of note. I worry that this will all go away with a whimper.

Alan: You ain't the only one concerned re the half-dozen.

I've said for a number of years that logistics for the Resistance will be easy, in that a case of MREs will suffice for both the numbers and the lifespans of those who show up.

Some folks chuckle uncomfortably on hearing that, thinking it's a joke.

It's not.

Plan B needs to have a Plan C, if you know what I mean.

The politician-kids from the other town fomented war over a disturbance that was nothing, or by lying about a provocation they caused themselves. The underclassmen-liberal-kids dispensed social approval for grr-woof-woof loyalty beliefs from their self-ascribed lofty social position, but were too smart to fight personally. The General Smedley Butler kids bought into it. When they got older, they fell for it again and joined the US armed forces. Most of the kids evaluated the situation correctly, and didn't show up for a war over nothing.

"I've said for a number of years that logistics for the Resistance will be easy, in that a case of MREs will suffice for both the numbers and the lifespans of those who show up."

Think that through. Suppose there is an American dekulakization, done by tax policy and nationalization of industries, which ruins them. Nobody gets shipped to gulags in Siberia, instead, they get kicked out of their homes by foreclosure. Sympathy is low because in the beginning it's mostly the crooked people who lied on their loan applications who get kicked out. This runs for a few years and lots of kulaks are dead from infection in the hospital after injury, complications that occur when socialist healthcare is rationed. Meanwhile the prepper-survivors have gone to ground. They don't assemble or fight. Eventually the count of mainstream middle class voters is much reduced. This leaves a population composed of bad people and the preppers. With the middle class voter snitches out of the preppers' way, the balance of power has shifted.

Hey Alan, I remember seeing you at the RTC rally in NC. Didn't get a chance to come up and say hello, but I'll make sure I do so in the future.

Man, if you guys are worried about that, that scares me. The worst thing is that I've often wondered that very question myself.

What if they had a war and no one showed up? It would be like that saturday. What if the government ordered a tax and no one paid it? Would we all just be better off if we ignored the government mandates and didn't show up?

You'll know I showed up when you find a trail of scalped bodies and burning vehicles.

Resistance must start on the economic front first. Until you see shipping containers from overseas tipping off the dock and into the ocean, then the people really aren't ready for anything else.

I'd prefer a peaceful change like we saw in Central Eastern Europe rather than a Balkan civil war meltdown. If the majority of people show up say no and really mean it, then force becomes less of an option for the other side (not to say it doesn't happen in a limited manner like Romania).

Sean:

The 'I'm a scalper' sweatshirts will be ready after New Years.

You'll have two set aside. What size?

I'm sure that quotation is exactly how most people felt about things back in 1776 --except for one of my ancestors who bothered to show up for the Revolution.

Yup, those dumb kids just keep showing up again and again when the work needs to be done.

In the meantime please continue to enjoy what's left of America's trickle down freedom today as a result of someone else's spilled blood from yesterday.

GardenSERF, blockading international free trade is indeed a story from 1776, but it's not on the side of liberty. The tea came from a government monopoly; the shipping containers do not.

In 1776 it was a revolutionary war against a foreign totalitarian oppressor. In the current Middle Eastern war, WE are the foreign totalitarian oppressor. The situation is reversed.

You can last longer if you fight smarter. Strike the enemy where they're weak; they cannot have overwhelming firepower everywhere.

Strike where they're weak, where it can make an effect on the lives of ordinary people. Be effective and be able to survive and you will gain the numbers.

Then you get to figure out who are the infiltrators... why a Lone Wolf strategy make sense.

Study Global Guerrillas....

While i kind of expected to be excoriated because of my post, I hope that all of you will indulge me for just another moment.

Most consider inaction to our present situation to be apathy. I'm of the opinion that it is nothing more than just plain cowardice.

Gentlemen, understand, standing up to the present situation might involve chastisement, both verbal and/or physical. One could also be subject to arrest and incarceration. At the extreme, serious bodily injury and/or death could be expected.

I for one am willing to suffer any and all of the foregoing as long as it is in concert with others. I will not suffer alone as an individual. Sorry, I'm just not that magnanimous.

So, please, tell me how we come together. Please. There's not much time left.

XL for both. One of my sons is a IIIper and he's way tallern' me. I seem to have gotten rounder. Ahem. I can't imagine what peoples reaction will be to the sight of them, but it can't be much worse than the "Up all fucking night!" ones I've seen. I'll just tell folks it's from my alter ego, and watch the fun.

In a collectivist environment, the grass blade that stands above its peers gets mowed down. This is military fact.

"Gentlemen, understand, standing up to the present situation might involve chastisement, both verbal and/or physical. One could also be subject to arrest and incarceration. At the extreme, serious bodily injury and/or death could be expected."

Stand up and ruin your middle class camouflage, and you will be a loser. Paint a big "L" on your forehead, take yourself out of the game. Only cowards can't handle the stress of keeping their own individual council.

"So, please, tell me how we come together. Please. There's not much time left."

Coming. Together. In. Collective. Organization. Is. Not. The. Answer. The answer for this readership is to have the moral bravery to admit to yourself that no form of collectivism works as advertised, even to fund roads, schools, police, courts, and armies. Stop paying taxes, but do it in a way that doesn't expose you to punishment. Effective warriors don't charge a machine gun nest, they go under it, around it, over it, or make themselves transparent to bullets. Adapt and overcome.
