The Liberty To Disobey

There are only three types of people in America: the good, the evil and the zombies. While the Zombie theme is big in Hollywood and video games, it escapes me. Yet, how else to describe all of those people who, in these incredibly interesting times (for good or bad) are oblivious; who are focused on their own petty lives rather than the dramatic evolution going on around them?

The world teeters on the brink of World War III, because Putin will never stop now. Whatever chance there was to limit Putin's desire for an empire, it is gone. How long before he invests in an effort to get California to hold a secession vote? I know there are more communists in California than dedicated patriots.

But then, it is getting to be a bit of a curious dilemma for those of us who lived through the Cold War and always associated the Soviet Union with Communism. What is Russia? They hold elections and it would be difficult to consider that Putin is not actually popular enough to win those elections. At the same time, this great nation has turned its back on everything that made it different from the Soviet Union. We live now through looking glass.

Which brings me back to the first point: the good, the evil and the zombies.

The Good: those of us who believe in the principles of the Constitution; that our rights are God-given and our nation's most important documents were drafted with securing these rights as the primary goal. Now, lest one think me simple-minded, it might very well have been a bunch of rich, white men who drafted the documents they did to protect their own assets and encouraged a bunch of backward yokels to put down their lives to secure those riches to themselves. If that's how one chooses to see our history, it tells me so much more about them than it does about the founders.

The fact is, I don't care what their motivations were or what they were trying to accomplish by drafting the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The point so many cynics miss is that it doesn't matter. A true patriot feels the deep gash of tyranny from their first encounter. The lovers of liberty recall that moment the state became bigger than anyone else, bigger than their parents or teachers.

What the founders brought to us, intentionally or unwittingly, is the vital concept that individual human beings were greater than the state. By having God-given rights we are more powerful than the state and that when the state interferes and denies us our rights we have the right and the obligation to do away with it. We have the duty to overthrow that dangerous and abusive state and recreate one that will be better designed to secure those rights.

The Evil: those who would deny anyone God's gift of liberty. Evil can only describe a person or a thing dedicated to the enslavement of the masses, discarding the great and noble principle of individual liberty. In the book of Genesis God created Adam from the earth and Eve from his rib. But, if you read the text and think about it, the first thing God gave to Man was liberty to choose whether or not to eat of the tree of knowledge. While Adam and Eve abused their liberty and disobeyed God, if it were not for the liberty to do so, they would have been mere drones of God to do as he instructed. And so, those who have chosen to so construct society to force, through corrupt laws and a corrupt system, to honor themselves as God are truly an evil to be engaged and conquered.

The Zombies: those who blindly follow evil, binding themselves and others to the construct of society to deny rights to the individual in favor of a better good. The Zombies have no mind of their own, but are fed on the enslavement of others. They only feel whole when in total compliance with the dictates of degenerate leaders.

------------------------

Understanding the state of this nation, then, leaves one with only one course of action: outright rebellion. Good must vanquish evil. It is too late to vote. It is too late to protest. The society that has shaken off the concept of individual power over the state must be destroyed, utterly, and replaced with a renewed dedication to that principle. If God gave man the liberty to disobey, it is only right that we do so to preserve His gift to man. And, just so we get this straight, the vast amount of zombies do not matter.

  1. I on the other hand, totally get the zombie thing. Zombies are a metaphor for bad things, whether they be troops or hordes of the uncivilized or plague ridden. It always brings about the collapse of civilization and each individual or group must survive on their own wit. Their is something in the air and everyone can smell it, even though they can't put their finger on what it is. That I believe is why the genre is so popular. Anyway, it certainly does not hurt my marksmanship to practice rapid fire zombie kills at 50 Yds. Metaphorical zombies are also subject to head shots. As usual, you have provided a great article that is insightful, thought provoking and well written.

    1. Exactly so, Dog. I've been saying so for quite awhile now and it never ceases to amaze me how few people understand or take it seriously.

      Heartily second the praise for your article, TL!!!

      Evil must be destroyed, utterly. This evil resides within people, so......

  2. Calafonication will LEAVE!!! YEH!!!!!!!! The sooner the better. Then lets build a wall and exile all the east coast trash, hippies, queers, PETA wacos, republicrats, and antis. That would get rid of what? 80% of the population between Virginia Beach and Maine, Most of Illinois and almost all of Oregon ,Washington and parts of Texas?

    1. Illinois is bad. Because of Chicago. The rest of the state is red. Quinn, the current communist governor won only 4 out of 102 counties in the last election (C(r)ook and a bordering county and two counties around St Louis). That's it. Similar to New York, take out NYC and you have a red state. Take out Chicago and Ill is a red state. So not most of Ill, just a few small parts.

    2. Washington, Oregon, Idaho and a part of Wyoming are set aside for Whites. California is going Aztlan just through Demographics. "New Africa" (capitol Jacksonville, Mississippi) is the South. Chicago, Detroit and the Great Lakes region has been declared the "New Caliphate" (Praise Allah!) And the FUSA will hold most of the rest (except for the Free State of Utah).

      Fun Times! Look for me, I will be wearing the Green, White and Blue of the Northwest American Republic.

  3. I was listening to Dennis Prager on the radio, when he made this insightful and thought provoking comment: "those who appease evil, hate those that confront it."

  4. Anonymous, what happens when the Chinese or Russians talk to the newly seceded California to use its seaports or simply invade and take control of them? How about Seattle, Long Beach, San Diego, etc? TL says what has been obvious for years, that only rebellion and destruction of D.C. can save what is remaining, to give up our seaports is unacceptable. Alex

  5. Probably one of the stupidest things I have ever read. Well done.

  6. The day of open rebellion may soon be upon us. Keep an eye on the events unfolding in the prostitution state of Connecticut with their illegal new gun laws. They have made close to 350,000 citizens felons with their thoughtless disregard of the Constitution. The question is how long before some jack-booted member of the unlawful enforcement community decides to actually try to kick someones door in and arrest them. Things may not go smoothly for the boys in their swat uniforms and that just might be the shot heard around the world.

    1. I agree with you whole heartedly. The first time a badged jack-booted thug kills a family while trying to confiscate weapons, I pray that God instills the wrath of the people to retaliate against those who committed murder enforcing an unconstitutional law.

  7. I second your emotion, TL!

  8. Forget California secession.
    Time for the South to do it again.

    Let my Texas lead the way this time.

    God bless the Republic of Texas.

    1. When that happens we will be heading for Texas. We lived there for 3 years and I miss it every day. _revjen45

  9. I agree the DoI was drafted with securing rights in mind, but the USCON was clearly meant only to secure unlimited power for the government. That the Articles of Confederation were "too weak" for the national government, coupled with the fact the BoR wasn't even a part of the USCON, I think means no one should be surprised the US is a police state.

    I suggest the "Good" should implement, post-rebellion, a replacement for the USCON if they'd like to avoid further tyranny.

  10. Amen, TL, especially the last para....

  11. "...who are focused on their own petty lives rather than the dramatic evolution going on around them?"

    Well, the problem is not "their own petty lives" as you call it. What is liberty if not the ability to live your own life?

    The problem is belief in the government religion (the true established religion in this country). They have been trained to not look around and take stock; to trust the rulers to take care of any problems. That is what the government schools and the Ministry of Propaganda are all about.

  12. Perhaps the better question would be "Would Putin back a Constitutional revolution in America?" One that would make a large part of this country stop meddling in others business geopolitically; one that would pay its debts with Gold, gas or oil; one that would tie up the resources of the current regime enough to keep them out of his business? "Time for the south to do it again"? Well, maybe it is and there could be a new France to finance the seconds AR.

    Big BUT: It would be making bedfellows with a scary guy.
