Politics As Usual
- is it -
? Cooperation or Exploitation?

Abuse Of Power

Rigging the System


Consent?

In life, people act or other people act for them. Politial challenges to established governing structures are historially cyclical. Some say we are now approaching the end of such a cycle. The number of protests grow because the governed question the value of government. This is a very libertarian act. A good example can be seen here.

For bad examples click here. Political resitance to existing power structures can turn violent. (see here)

Are we in the final states of a culture war? BE AWARE! The current civil lawlessness is NOT an American problem. As with the pandemic and police violence, burning, looting & violent insurrection is found in Democrat voting cities where a collectivist culture tends to dominate. Democrat officials & voters seek to place blame & responsibility elsewhere instead of themselves. The situation in these cities deteriorates from destroying statues and governement building to shootings. “This is not about reform. It is about revolution, and revolutions don’t care about elections”. (source)

Insurrections often lead to catastrophe. As the saying goes: " you've got to crack a few eggs to make an omelette." Famous examples include:

German pastor Martin Niemöller wrote his now famous poem about cowardice on the latter.

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a socialist...Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
"


First they came for statues and I said nothing because I'm no statue. Then they came to loot but I did nothing because it's not my stuff. They came for the rich - which I'm not. They came for Republicans and Democrats but I'm neither. Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.

Toto, this isn't Kansas anymore. Prepare and adapt. Act in your own interest and values. It may come down to a basic decision: resist or submit.

In a speech on July 6, 2017, U.S. President Donald J. Trump said:

"The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive. Do we have the confidence in our values ​​to defend them at any cost? ... Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?"

Good question. (click here for more) Let it all burn down?

The options:

  1. submit to the insurrectioniststs.
  2. peacefully resist (withhold consent).
  3. violently resist (fight back).

Option 1 might resemble paying for protection to insurrectionists themselves instead of relying on official police or private security. This resembles paying 'protection money' to the mob. One example can be found here. Simply accepting the new set of rules imposed by 'rebels' would be the ultimate submision.

Option 2 would simply withohld consent. To abandon the area for a safe location is one possibility (bug out). Perhaps some threat of force (mutually assured destruction?) can be negotiated...or cede the field to particular areas (partition, secession, gerrymander). Private security or voluntary quasi-police (ex: Neigborhood Watch or posse) can defend people or property. Refuse service. Don't supply demands. Worst case: If your business is threatened, abandon it (or burn it down) before the looters do their damage. You lose but they don't gain.

Option 3 would require attacking the threat. It would be an offensive effort - as in counter-revolution. This might involve using existing official government police/military forces; private security forces; vigilante or voluntary group action; secret organizations; or a combination of these. Augusto Pinochet would be an example of attacking the resistance.

Has the time come to act?
