Amber Waves Of Grain


John Venlet posts this insight into how Leviathan sees its limits.

"Boundless" doesn't begin to describe it.

And remember - wheat was a big piece of how we got into this mess.

They will not stop.

They.

Will.

Not.

Stop.

Get it?

Maybe Mr. Douglass can help; read it all, but here's an excerpt:

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them, and these will continue till they have been resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.

Your move.

Interesting: The Constitution does not specify the number of Justices that must comprise the Court.

Is 3 the right number?
(many other options suggest themselves.)

I will await further developments. Kind of how Grant did until Johnston damn near kicked his and 60,000 federals asses' into the Tennessee River. I've gotten to like this waiting around crap. It has the same effect on me that a man being circled by a tiger experiences, knowing he is about to be devoured, and being required to think of a way out. You know, ifn' I DO find a way out, something is going to have to be done about that tiger. I hear they make nice rugs.

I wrote this as commentary on another issue-talks about lowering the minimum wage in an age of decreasing job opportunities and hyperinflation, but the gist fits:

"WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO SACRIFICE FOR A CHANCE AT VICTORY-WHILE THERE'S STILL A CHANCE?"

Leonidas, I'd amend that question to "what are you willing to sacrifice for a chance at victory-while there's still a chance?"

Your home?

Your family?

Your social life, your comforts?

To be able to function in a society that is rapidly becoming totalitarian, with the facade of freedom noticeably peeling off even to those hopelessly zonked out on the TV?

What if waiting for that SHTF is too late?

What if waiting for that SHTF is a scam-to keep us preoccupied with a looming crisis while the enemy always acts incrementally?

Those that signed the Declaration of Independence, those who lined up to certain death at Lexington, and chased the British Army throughout Concord back to Boston-THEY DECIDED. They did the mental math, decided and acted upon that decision.

The movement's been doing the mental math over and over... and most have made what history will prove to be the WRONG decision... but they're too afraid to man up to admit that decision. They play, pretend, to be Rebel because it's a salve for the anguish they feel in their very souls to choose the creature comforts still afforded by the beast over Freedom.

It's an understandable calculation, but it's the wrong one. I do feel however there is still time for those who have made these bad decisions to amend to God and Country.

Those that fought against the British Empire, they risked all-and a lot them gave all, even their families lives, for Freedom. Nothing less will do for us.

And Freedom does NOT involve throwing those poorer than us to the wolves, backstabbing fellow Patriots, or endlessly requoting Von Mises, Jefferson, Rand, or whoever and calling it Mission Accomplished.

Freedom involves making connections, alliances. Freedom involves getting out into one's town, finding out who does what (and to whom) and proceeding against them accordingly. Freedom involves walking the walk... how many Americans can say they do that? I mean, the enemy walks their walk-all over us-as routinely as some of us dig out a Patrick Henry quote.

Have I done enough? No. Am I trying, or at least trying to try? That I can say... I'm trying... trying to try. Sound's awful weak but I'm being truthful.

"but will be a moral pauper, a drag on the wheels of society"

Douglas was right in SO many ways. We have become a nation of sheeple who so drag the wheels,it's amazing it continues at the speed it does...

And yet here we are....

I here ya Sean and agree!

This could be an exact description of the North's attitude and actions toward the South in the years, months and days leading up to the War. Deliciously ironic, that.
