Unless it is completely gone, what can be built where it stood?

Over the past few weeks I have noticed a trend within the libertarian and freedom social circles. More frequent acceptance of blatant promotion or endorsement of some of the states enforcement arms has become the new status quo for many. This acceptance tends to come from those who have either been involved directly within the various branches of enforcement or from those who have people they know inside of them. IMG_00000005_edit

There are several common arguments supporting this trend.

  • The military supports your right to speak and have the freedom you do now. This of course is blatant misrepresentation of the facts. Over the course of the militaries presence within the United States and without, several things have occurred. First, the military has been used numerous times to stamp out opposition within the borders of the United States. Second, the military has been used to suppress rebellion and strengthen the position of whichever party is currently in power in Washington D.C. Historically regardless nation, the military will support the decisions of their masters and will follow orders and what is deemed “lawful” at the time.
  • Without the police people would just kill, rob and rape each other. This assumption is based on the flawed idea that everyone else is less of a moral individual then the speaker themselves. It also assumes that no individual will stand for their own natural rights and defend themselves. This assumption has also been proven wrong, in fact, in the sections of society that have the highest police presence, crime is generally also quite high when compared to other segments of society per capita.

  • They are working inside to change things…Unfortunately, of all of the arguments I have heard, this one is the most ignorant of them all. At no point in history has any one man or group of men changed what is to a more beneficial system through tirelessly voting or working within it. Rather, the system has in all cases continued to crumble and almost always brings down the paragons of virtue that people love to place on platforms and call hero.
  • What if we are attacked by another nation? This response is always directed at those who would dare say, we do not need government. To this the response is simple, why? And if this is just reasoning, what is to stop individuals from once again rising as they have before to join forces and throw off the shackles of tyranny being forcefully imposed upon them?

Unless it is completely gone, what can be built where it stood? Government as an idea must be made so abhorrent to its followers that they willingly throw off the shackles of self imposed slavery. This is what makes people who expose the misdeeds of those working in government and the government itself so very important. When the police are seen as the truly dangerous gang they are by many and are prevented from patrolling and ticketing to raise funds to feed the beast that is government, when they are kept within their buildings and prevented from entering neighbourhood after neighbourhood by the threat of violence occurring against them, this is when they will no longer be seen as necessary. When our military is soundly defeated time after time and body bag after body bag fills the streets for wars without end or justification, and when the government is bankrupted by its masses of welfare whores, especially those who steal more then any one family needs through direct labour to support the government. When this occurs, people will throw off the shackles of government. 20130120-175016.jpg

Slavery is something that has been in place longer then government as an institution. Government is simply the more efficient means of enslaving entire populations while dangling treats in front of them. To win against government and its countless mindless drones shuffling mindlessly around supporting everything it does without a thought we must help others see. There are some who see my stance regarding certain “liberty figures” as divisive, and yet, without the truth, without my integrity and honesty regarding these carrion feeding bacterium who drain the reason from those who follow them will anything good truly have a chance?

Face your fears, embrace them and destroy them with reasonable alternatives and ideals. If you preach a set of principles, hold to them, remember, the countless socio-paths who feed on the fears of others will always be out there. Forget these divisive maggots and study, learn and use your own mind. Sure what they write and say may sound good, but again, unless you study and learn on your own what good is following? Even though I have and will likely continue to receive mindless threats from equally mindless maggots feeding on the remains left by the ravenously hungry sociopaths that entwine themselves in any movement with potential, I do not fear that. Rather, it emboldens me to continue doing what I know is right. 20130113-191018.jpg

I will always hold to my principles, my values and I will live them. Unlike the cowards and state promoting neanderthals who use put others down for disagreeing I will embrace that. I know I am not perfect, unlike some, I know I make mistakes and unlike those who staunchly continue their quest for ever greater power regardless platform, I only want freedom. To be left alone to do what I will without interference from ANYONE or anything. I have chosen to TAKE that freedom and to stand on it. I have chosen to enjoy that freedom and will teach, share and promote the idea wherever there is a place to do so. Dont fear death or life, fear ignorance and wilful slavery to another’s idea of what should be. In the words of one of my favorite songwriters, “Fuck you I wont do what you tell me.”

Free the mind and the body will follow.
