I feel more pressingly than ever the need for a safe refuge. A now obviously rogue government continues to undermine every precept of Liberty that shows any sign of being relevant. The general public continues to willfully ignore anything resembling uncomfortable knowledge.
As storied as the flag of the United States of America is, I begin to ponder whether or not it has become irredeemably tied to the failed nation that now stands where the Greatest Nation on Earth once did. Given the absolute revulsion with which the occupation views the Battle Flag of the Confederacy, and the prevailing misunderstanding that it was a national symbol, maybe it is time to put the truth to those words, and adopt the Battle Flag as the standard of the new Free America.
Too, I wonder just how much longer the “just leave me alone” segment of the public will allow the regime to piss in its face. The indignities it has already visited on conservative freedom lovers are far beyond what would have had contemporaries of Sam Adams breaking out the Manila and scouting out suitable trees.
Read up on your Mosby, train, plan, learn, look to the hills, and most importantly, get ready for the now virtually inevitable fight.
Those Who Would Be Our Masters continue to dismantle everything good about Western civilization, making new inroads on a daily basis. They are waging war on What Works, on behalf of the never-ending list of “hey, I’ve got an idea” faculty-lounge bull session products.
And every day that no one stands up and says “stop, what you’re doing is wrong”, they get a little more of what they want. So far, this war they’re waging is one-sided.
In other words, they’re winning.
And as long as they’re winning, they have no need to do anything differently than they do now. No need to attempt mass no-knock raids on “eeevuull conservatives”, no need for “Teh Campz”, no need for an Enabling Act or a Kristallnacht or a Reichstag Fire. Were they to meet any kind of genuine resistance, they might still get what they want, but it would likely cost them their legitimacy, and there’d be a good chance that any future “victories” would be hard-won if they were won at all.
So when are you going to stop just letting them win?
Plenty of other blogs of this nature emphasize training. Mainly, though, they talk about your training: learn SUT, learn CQB, learn this learn that. But it’s always you. However, not all of you are “lone wolves”. Some of you have others to think about.
This came up in the Roundtable session at the North Carolina PatCon: In the early stages, at least, of a major societal dislocation, when you are most likely to need all those other kinds of training, you’re also likely going to need to move your personal noncombatant contingent out of the line of fire and/or to a safe place. Do they know how to handle themselves in a fluid free-fire environment? What if one of them is a toddler? How do you impress on a toddler the need for noise discipline, or of remaining motionless? Since those are rhetorical questions, how do you, the leader of your merry band, handle movement with someone like that?
Something to think about.
I’m glad you’re here. I’m going to get right to it. To paraphrase some well-known poetry, the Center isn’t holding. The more voices there are that can speak against the unravelling of the Nation, the better, sez me. We’ve got the highest court in the land essentially saying that a law says what they say it says, not what might actually be written on the page. We have a perpetually-offended segment of the public that insists on forcing their viewpoint on the rest of us, and deleting important historical symbols and cultural elements in the process. We have an Executive administration that is openly contradicting itself while inflicting all kinds of new and egregious impositions on the citizenry.
The list can go on for hours. As so many others in the III blogosphere say, a fight is coming, and we had best be prepared to play an active part. I’m going to try to focus on several areas of preparation/training, while pointing you at better sources for the areas I can’t adequately speak to, and occasionally I’ll inflict my opinion on you regarding some outrage or other.
