In the early 1950's the United States Government, particularly the CIA, overthrew the government of Guatemala. The reason for this is that United Brands (of Chiquita Banana fame) claimed that communists had taken over the government. The charge was made as a result of Jacobo Arbenz Guzman's Administration when they, taking a lesson from the United States, nationalized a small, unused portion of United Brands land in order to distribute it among the Guatemalan people to farm.
It was a desperate measure to create private ownership of land. They went about it the wrong way, but sought to use capitalism as a means to eliminating poverty. Jacobo Arbenz Guzman understood that to eliminate poverty, the people must be able to own land in order to become prosperous.
In effect (at the urging of Harry Reid) the United States Government, specifically the Bureau of Land Management, has engaged in a very similar act. Except the BLM, in the Bundy case and more accurately the Hage case, has taken property (grazing rights are a form of property since it contains certain value) from the people in order to give it to large corporations.
A recent poll found that 37% of Americans fear their government. In America, where the government is supposed to fear the people. That is terrorism. Their intent is intimidation and the threat of incarceration, physical harm and even executions are implied. The military-style image of American federal agents is designed to intimidate, to terrorize.
A government cannot rely so heavily as it does on this absolute threat of violence without creating terror in the hearts of citizens. There is no terror so absolute as that created by one's own government. Any other thing, a criminal or a foreign terrorist do not strike the same fear in people, because they can believe that there is a counter-balancing force against them on behalf of the people: the police. But, when government sponsored terrorism is directed at the people themselves, there is no hope of rescue, or justice-there is only terror.
In a lot of countries such injustice and oppression, as are present in America, would spawn an insurrection, rebels, etc. In America, it has spawned the citizen's militia movement. These are organizations dedicated to the defense of inalienable rights, of the Constitution. It is the only resort citizens have against a lawless, terroristic government bent on the subjugation and humiliation of their own citizens. Militias are not of the insurrectionist ilk. Instead, they serve as defenders of the law, of the people against an out-of-control, lawless, unbounded and hostile government. A terrorist government.
