Denninger: We Just Don't Quit, Do We?


Karl Denninger looks first to Egypt, then to the bigger picture:

***
...Here's the ultimate expression of the problem, as has been repeatedly shown over the years and throughout nations worldwide: Political power, once the people responsible decide to dig in their heels, is only ceded when the people are willing to attach an "or else" to their protests and convince those in power they mean it...
***

Got 100 container-loads or more of "or else"?

The Bad People, in Egypt and here in their nominal master's lair, sure do.

And you can bet that these folks do, as well - despite what this imbecile said and is now being walked back.

Now, ask yourself this:

If you were a lifer in the FedGov, would you have any fact-based reason to fear (or even respect) the American people you ostensibly serve?

Any non-fantasy-based reason at all?

Thought not.

And so to quote Causapatet:

Well ... here we are. Imagine where we will be.

Just imagine.

KD sez:

No, the real power resides in the fact that the people can always go on a general strike and refuse to return to work.

One little problem with hanging your hat on that here... we already have about half the population not working and on the dole!

We're going to have to fight not only the feralgov jackals but their dependents as well.

And getting a general nationwide work stoppage in America? I just can't see it. Maybe in face of severe shortages of everything, massive .gov violence, but by then it'll be too late for anything but 1776 v. III.

I couldn't get co-workers to strike after half the company was laid off and the management punished those who dared object with additional layoffs, me among them. My last minutes, there, I begged the guild officers to do something that would make a difference.
Turns out, they think I can't be trusted with guns and my political speech (Tea Party libertarian) is "radical." So they're accustomed to making a token resistance but then settling down to serfdom.

Explains a lot, doesn't it?

After the fall of the Soviet Union, most of the pundits kept repeating the bit about how "Communism died because it ran out of men willing to kill to maintain it."

Sadly, that line of thinking applies to any sort of governing philosophy, including that of the Founding Fathers.
