Rule without law is Anarchy. Depending on where you stand on the dictum “might makes right” you can be assured of either supporting or opposing anarchy.
If you are among the prosperous and mighty, than you probably want to support anarchy, especially if you got your IGG (Ill Gotten Gains) through a less than “legal” method.
Note that the word legal is in quotation marks because without law – which is what anarchy is - lawlessness – there is no “Legal” and conversely there is no “illegal” there is, in the words of Yoda, the eminent contemporary philosopher –“ … just is.”
And we know that, according to that masterful wordsmith William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, there can be adverse and conflicting opinions to the meaning of the word “is” too.
All too often the comprehension of Anarchy is misunderstood (Can we have a misunderstood comprehension?) because the people who are in anarchist movements always imagine that those things which they despise are the only ones that will be destroyed (anarchy is always sold as destroying what is and replacing it with what the leadership “wishes” to be – again a dissimulation of the word “is” needs discussion)
Anarchist themes can be found in the 6th century BC, among the works of Taoist philosopher Laozi, and in later centuries by Zhuangzi and Bao Jingyan. Zhuangzi's philosophy has been described by various sources as anarchist. Zhuangzi wrote, "A petty thief is put in jail. A great brigand becomes a ruler of a Nation." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchism)
The greatest nation in the history of the world (the United States) has prospered and grown as more people accessed the wealth and conditions that were only dreamed of a few short decades ago because we grew as a nation of law, and not just Many man’s law, but as Thomas Jefferson so eloquently put it in the Declaration of Independence that law which God intended:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
We did not initiate our revolution as out of control anarchists seeking to do away with a system, we revolted because the “system” was anarchy in and of itself and needed correction. Rule by a monarch’s whim is not rule by law.
I find it most unfortunate that in today’s world, the people who call themselves leaders are actually the ones who are fomenting and supporting anarchy because they expect to prosper from it.
Like a fool who lights a match to see why the carburetor is malfunctioning, the resulting conflagration will destroy the automobile, the carburetor and even the fool in the process.
Maybe that’s not a good analogy, but these liberals who insist on having their way to the extent that they don’t consider the resulting chaos are in that mode right now. They want their way, even if they have no idea what their “way” actually is.
The very system that supports them in their power and allows their wishes to come to fruition will be destroyed as they attempt to wrest control away from and destroy the very process that produced it. The results of their actions, and that which follows – replacing the existing system – will be totally beyond theirs – or anybody else’s ability to control.
We must be careful of what we wish for, because the law of unintended consequences is always in play, and in spite of liberals’ assurances to the otherwise, Nobody can predict what will happen as the rule of law gives way to the rule of the mob. Which is what they are now calling “Social Justice.”
Russian anarchists destroyed the Czar and his family in hopes of bringing power to the people. They had no idea what that meant, but it sounded good in the ears of both the intelligentsia and the peasants of the time.
What they got was rule by Communism, which was Anarchy – of course of another sort – and Communism made the rule of the Czars seem benevolent in comparison.
We will not like rule under Democrats in perpetuity, or even having a 30 year limitation – but it’s where we are headed.
Anarchy is back. The last time anarchy was a noticeable political movement in the world, bomb throwing anarchists were killing heads of state and government leaders, as part of their scheme to take the whole system down, and impose socialist rule. Of course they claimed socialist rule didn’t really count as rule, because ideology.
Well, these days world leaders are much better protected, so instead the anarchists are going after websites and just trying to disrupt, particularly online. We must be mindful of this, create cybersecurity policies that let government and industry share information (through bills like CISA), and make sure to investigate and prosecute these crimes.
Anonymous, a cellular network of anarchists similar to Al Qaeda, went after some websites, as usual. Website hacks usually aren’t as big a deal as they want you to think, as xkcd points out, but they still cost time and money, and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law (no matter how much complaining we get from the crowd using Aaron Swartz’s suicide as political prop).
Anonymous was previously involved in attacks on Sony’s Playstation Network, attempting to steal money from credit cards of those who shopped on the service.
But now new attacks on PSN and a tweeted threat against the plane carrying a Sony subsidiary’s Pre... have been carried out by a new ideological group Lizard Squad. These anarchists want to “End the greed” of “yet another large company,” by making mindless destructive attacks. Anarchism’s pattern since the beginning.
Investigate the attacks. Prosecute the offenders. We should even do what we used to do 100 years ago, and deny entry to the US by foreign anarchists, and to expel foreign anarchists who are already here. Anarchy is a movement as hostile to our way of life as Communism, and far more aggressive. We must act.
Make no mistake, leftist and left-libertarian tech policy are all about power. Net Neutrality is about growing government power. Local socialized Internet is about FCC taking power from the states. Title II Reclassification is about price controls on the Internet. We must oppose all of it.
Heck, FCC can’t even run a simple auction without mucking it up by trying to pick winners and losers.
Mergers don’t have the effects you think in cable. You see, cable is already a monopoly in virtually every market, so a merger doesn’t matter, at all. So there’s no legitimate reason for government to grow to stop the Comcast/ Time Warner Cable deal.
Lamar Alexander has forgotten 9/11.
Reddit Bitcoiners are dominated by idiots who think Bitcoin should be above the law and worse, don’t even know how to make their own wallets, a core Bitcoin feature. And worse, Bitcoiners are now forming a PAC.
Don't forget....you can go to www.JimBakker.com/lovegifts They have portable solar power generators, germ killing Silver So (I routinely use Silver Sol now), 30 year shelf life food, an electric water maker (you can use the generator), water filters that even remove radioactive material out of any water supply including pot holes, etc!!!
we, the people are the victims and will do nothing......talk. talk. write write,,,
Thanks for asking and posting that question Mr. Regan. I don't know what anyone else is planning to do in case of complete Martial law, but I have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do. I am NOT saying that I'm prepared, not by any means. But at least I may have some ideas for a plan.
The first thing we have to realize is that a complete Martial law in America would be nearly impossible to institute and much harder to manage and control that most people think. There are basically only three things that the Government or the UN would have to do to create a Martial Law shut-down;
1) Shut down and turn off all civil communications; Internet, cell phone and telephones, Radio, TV,
2) Kill the power grid: That would take care of a lot of things on step 1 above. But it would also shut down the gas stations which in turn would shut down all commercial trucking and transportation systems., The grocery stores will empty in less than three days.
3) Number three is where their system of complete control goes to hell, Complete control over the masses, total Martial Law and absolute curfew.
We've seen over the past two weeks just how difficult it is to enforce a curfew and implement a Martial Law in Ferguson, MO. They basically couldn't do it. And those people were not nearly as pissed off as we will be.
There are a few methods of communications that they cannot control and shut down, Short-wave, HAM, and CB mobile radios. Yes they can jam the airways, but they can't block everything.
So just a basic simple plan to link up with your other local groups, people you should already be familiar with by now would be one of the first steps. Finish up your plans for a local and State Militia security force. You should already be working on that, but don't put all your eggs in one basket either.
Beyond that there are several good books people could be reading, and this is already included as part of my contingency plans, take a look at a book called "Special Forces- Guerrilla Warfare Manual" by Scott Wimberly. There are others, some better, but essentially you get the idea.
Personally I really don't expect to survive until the end of the war. I said before I don't think anyone who is alive on the planet today will live long enough to see the end of this next coming war. And I'm not saying that in a defeatist attitude, maybe I've read too much history. But that doesn't mean we can't survive another 20-30 years, and being an eternal optimist it doesn't say that I'm right either.
The problem with Katrina was, too, though, that the people that the police were trying to help were firing on them, even firing on their helicopters. How stupid is that??? That's probably why they went around confiscating firearms in that scenario!
Read this the other day and feel that it is a fairly accurate assessment of our current state of affairs.
Subject: Alexander Tyler, about the fall of the Athenian Republic --
As received from a reader -
About the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in
1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of
Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some
2000 years prior:
"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a
permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from
the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for
the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury,
with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose
fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
"The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning
of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these
nations always progressed through the following sequence:
1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage "
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul,
Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000
Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million;
Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000
States won by: Gore: 19 Bush: 29
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2; Bush: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush
won was mostly the land owned by the tax-paying citizens of this great
country. Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in
government-owned tenements living off government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency
& apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some 40
percent of the nation's population already having reached the
"governmental dependency" phase.
