FK – While I agree with you in general I feel there are certain points I would be grossly remiss for not listing:
What the elites did was replace their ‘god appointed kings’ with democracy, another form of manipulation.
When millions or billions believe a falsehood to the point they’re willing to kill you over it that makes it very real. Religious adherents have proven this again and again over the millennia. But then the ‘wars for god’ are usually about resources and territory. See modern Israel.
Ideas carry the weight of blood and the baggage of human suffering and can expand to fill whatever void is there. Hundreds of millions died because of the ‘idea’ of communism regardless of its true origins. As long as some dumbass can read a copy of ‘The Communist Manifesto’ and claim “This could work if it’s only done right!” then it’s very real.
The question to ask is why do the corporations fund the commie front groups? Why did ‘capitalist’ Jeff Bezos buy the washington compost and allow it to remain a commie rag?
Why do Amazon properties in Kentucky have signs saying ‘no weapons’ when the law doesn’t allow them to do so?
Guns without the will to use them are toys for the range or the deer stand that unfortunately most will surrender if told to. The average amerikan has lost his will. The ideas of courage, standards, liberty, honor, intelligent thought, reason are considered to be relics of a past most know little about.
Every time I see some comment on line that includes ‘Molon Labe’ I’m sickened by the idea that it’s OK with them if they’re picked off one gun owner/family at a time with no thought to the concept that the black-suited Nazis should be exterminated when they show up at a neighbor’s house or after they conduct their first raid across town.
Cowards. Cowards all. We should’ve had the militia necessary to deal with this evil decades ago. But they still have steak, ice cream and a big screen, just like the Europeans who within a couple generations may fall to a third world horde in the name of false compassion and mindless ’empathy.’
Communism may be a tool invented by the elites in an effort to hang on to their power, that got out of control, or not. They consider us to be livestock anyway and in any business including farming there will be some acceptable losses.
As someone told me years ago “America is the United Nations.” It’s headquarters does sit on our soil and the Council on Foreign Relations is headquartered in New York City, ‘the capital of the world.’
The ‘elites’ have always ran the two party system. The communists infiltrated the demonscat party in the 20s. Lincoln had Marxist generals in the Yankee ranks. Search ‘Lincoln’s Marxists.’
No court, including the SCOTUS, is the final arbiter of our rights! WE ARE! They are our elected and hired PUBLIC SERVANTS!
In a nation of 320 million only a few hundred usually at best show up for any kind of protest. At best the protestors, often funded by elites probably from both ‘sides’ or the middle, are simple regurgitating their indoctrination, just like the average teacher or professor. I fear the masses are now so dumbed down they don’t even know what the sjws or whatever cute name the commies call themselves next are whining about.
For the record at one time they actually and on occasion still call out real problems, but their solutions are usually shit.
I have an old newspaper from the 50s with a headline that called the North Koreans ‘reds.’ Wonder why they don’t use that terminology any more?
Our grandparents and great grand parents were asleep at the wheel. McCarthy was right. They should’ve demanded the troops be kept home to hunt the commies here first. Trump needs to bring them home now.
The robber barons that many ‘libertarians’ deny existed bought out the large dailies in the early 20th century. Why did they allow/encourage the infiltration of their publications by Marxist thinkers/insurgents?
Art, as is ideology, often is in the eye of the beer holder, and we let them vote.
What we now call ‘classical'(art) music was hated by the old guard as being too whatever rock-n-roll was called in the 60s.
If anything obscenity laws are more strict now in some respects. In the 70s porn mags could be seen on grocery and drug store shelves. Now it’s to be had on any smartphone that a kid knows how to hack.
One reason we hear so much about certain topics now, besides them being used as propaganda, is in the not-so-good-ol-days certain topics were not for public discussion. So as always the tool-using monkeys go from one extreme to another.
Promiscuity and homosexuality has always existed, re. the ancient tribal propaganda’s warnings against participating in such, because they wanted to discourage the sheeple from spreading stds and creating unwanted babies that even early cultures knew would be a burden on their tribe or whatever.
The commie globalists have been paying the stupid and lazy to breed since the 60s. They knew exactly what the outcome would be.
It is a testament to the success of our enemies that ‘enlightenment christians’ helped found this country and killed their fellow Englishmen in the process but now most modern ‘christians’ are sitting on their asses waiting for the world to end with obviously no understanding of the fact that what they’re really doing is passing their slavery on to their descendants who like them aren’t going to get beamed up before things get too bad.
What is ‘allegiance?’ Look it up. Who wrote the ‘pledge‘ and why? I don’t think the Founders, at least those who truly valued Liberty, would’ve been in favor of such.
Considering all our enemies have accomplished maybe the constitution is inadequate. Read the ‘Federalist Papers’ and experience muttering “bullshit, bullshit” under your breath as Hamilton’s words of love for the federal govt. and his denial of the tyranny it could represent have been dwarfed by modern actuality.
The Bill of Rights, insisted upon by the Anti-Federalists, is the document that makes us exceptional. They acknowledge our natural born right to kill those who would imprison or torture or kill us for not obeying their version, sub-version or subversion of reality.
The federal bureau of instigation needs to be discredited. Or really its own actions already have.
20 + years of trying to get the tool-using monkeys to pay attention and act on anything at all that actually matters has convinced me that the human species is collectively insane.
I’ll never forget the preacher in the 70s who told us about a 14-year-old girl who said “No” to Jesus during an alter call and was trapped in a burning car on the way home from church and was screaming out that she wished she’d said “Yes” with of course the implication being that she would be burned alive forever. Of course many now deny the reality of sexual desire of one of that age and if an adult male of whatever age engaged in consensual sex with her he should be thrown under the prison and of course burned alive in fire with her forever.
That’s all the insanity I’ll mention for a while. Chew on it if you’re capable, while considering it was once a common thing for teens to get married and for our ancestors to have multiple wives and on and on.
It is funny that modern churches are full of re-married divorcees when their master clearly allegedly said not to do so, indeed he called it adultery.
The most ‘negative’ parents teach their children that violence is never an option and are negligent in providing them the skills they might need to kill those who might seek to enslave them or in our case enslave them further. The fact our domestic blood enemies would prefer a child be raped, tortured and murdered in front of their parents rather than the parents have the tools and skills necessary to stop the attack at the outset is reason enough to run them from our shores or hunt them to extinction. But this is no longer a nation of men.
The agenda as always is the decline of an empire. From the dust of dead societies we gathered the ideas that carried us to this point. The real question is what ideas will survive this next dust-up and will the survivors have sufficient understanding to establish a new birth of liberty or will humankind enter a new darkness?
FK – If I agreed with myself all the time that would be a scary thing. I daily have inclinations I know better than to follow.
If only we had a nation of men.
Trump is a demagogue whose only real purpose may be to continue the ‘status quo’ for a few more years until certain goals are met, or not.
We exist in a nation of cowardly whores who still look for a savior instead of looking within themselves and at their neighbors in Liberty for a solution to this which would most certainly have to include hot lead and blood. Otherwise the long slow decline will continue.
Judging from the empires of the past that collapsed from within we may have a few generations left until the horror becomes obvious to the average dumbass. I don’t know for sure. I don’t have a crystal ball. But we daily tolerate what we should have long ago obliterated.
And sitting on a rock out in the woods meditating on a ‘new you’ is great until the black-suited Nazis show up to remind you that you don’t own the rock.
