Monsters of History

In response to the Quote of the Decade at WRSA, freedomistas (a term I picked up from WRSA) are notoriously independent, private and self-sufficient, all things that work against "outreach." But, let me be as blunt as "local, local, local": at some point those who survived and even put up some sort of resistance and right now, we don't even know against whom we might be resisting, will have to coalesce.  Wars are not won on the battlefield, they are won at the treaty table. One does not get a seat at the treaty table unless they have made such a nuisance of themselves that they are requested to sit at the treaty table.  No group of individuals, 20-30, will be asked to sit and have leverage to rise up from the table and continue the shenanigans.


There are no stronger groups than those who have developed Community Defense Teams (CDT), whatever they might be termed, but that only goes so far.  It might excel at defense and it might even reach out into a bit of offense, but it is nowhere near enough to being a nuisance. It is one drone-strike from oblivion.  So, outreach is crucial, but dangerous.  It is dangerous to the CDT, it is dangerous to security, it is susceptible to infiltration.


We are not Boy Scouts, we are not going to win a PR war, we are not going to be able to operate on a large scale, because our biggest limitation is also our greatest strength, security. If it didn't sound so ridiculous, it would be time to start a secret society with handshakes and initiations. A thing so many of us have avoided for all of the reasons endemic to such things.


Yes, do good deeds.  Roll that gratitude back to the movement, but people who have to accept help are rarely those who will be able to offer it.


Okay, we are getting a little too late in the game to be polite.  Here are the nightmare scenarios. 1) Hillary is elected, she names several justices to the Supreme Court who "legally" approve gun confiscation and we all have to live up to the decades of hyperbole we have been spewing and then, if we are willing to forget all of our societal obligations, we go off one flashbulb at a time and it has no effect. They are just sweeping up the nuts. 2) the economy tanks, banks fail worldwide and we are thrown into an economic collapse unseen in the annals of history and we wind up fighting for survival, but while we are busy keeping our kin alive, the "politicians" gather and agree to a new Constitution that helps politicians better control the populace, one measure of which is banning firearms, (see above). 3) That the 2016 election is indeterminate (no one gets 270 electoral votes) and the whole political establishment implodes with infighting and power grabs.  Banks fail and see #2 above, OR, our political establishment is in such disarray that Russia/China make their move and the US is divided along the Mississippi with the Atlantic side going to Russian control and the Pacific side going to China.


Do you really think Trump or Hillary would be able to push the nuclear button?  Do you think that either of them value the United States of America as being worth such devastation to defend?  Would Paul Ryan be able to do it?  Would Nancy Pelosi?  Really? Or, would they rather cave to the Bi-lateral powers and agree to become some significant province thereof? Think of the lives that would be saved by a mere negotiation and does America really mean so much? I mean, what does it have that is special? To them, nothing.  They hate the Constitution and those who know what it says and who insist on individual rights and use the Constitution as legitimization of those demands.


It would be racist to believe that WE are any better than THEM.


So, the question remains: What are we doing right now that would have any effect whatsoever on any of that? And, these are just a few possible futures for this corrupt and diseased system we still cling to calling a Republic.  Any decent republic would look at us as a discredit, as a retarded cousin.


Without a coalescing or at least an agreement to act at the same time across the nation, we never get a say in what this nation becomes beyond the power grab of the future.  They are planning to take control beyond the chaos.  We aren't.  Survive is our mantra.  The Russian Revolution ought to illustrate this as well as anything I could say.  The way in which Hitler came to power is instructive.


But, I know, we are too good for that.  We are better than that.  We are decent and honest and just want to help our fellow man.  My point is: you have to win that privilege first and you have to do that by being diabolical and Lord knows I wish it weren't true, but it is.  Now, the trick is, how do you flip that switch and go from being diabolical to being benevolent?  Most can't, that's how we got the monsters of history.  The monsters are coming regardless of whether they are ourselves or them.

    The FUSA is dead and will not be coming back. We best be discussing what replaces it, because "they" are. -55six

  2. I believe what that fictional character said, was something along the lines of, "In order to defeat horror, you have to become horror". Both logical and pertinent, viewed by what history has shown. Would we have used something like the atomic bomb on Japan in say, 1940? Five years later, after dealing with their suicidal and horrific resistance, it was a slam dunk. Viewed now, there's all kinds of weeping and gnashing of teeth at what a horrible thing it was to do. Bullshit. It was the best thing to do. Each generation either learns this lesson, or it's off to the slave coffle you go. The Japs would have done it in a heartbeat. The Germans didn't because they let one man do all their thinking. The Americans did it because they wanted to win. Figure it out. Do you want to win?

  4. Educate your sons. The future lies with them, not us. Most of us will not get out of this alive. Our job is to clean the slate so that our boys, having learned from their fathers, can rebuild without the over whelming and outnumbering socialist hoard in their way. For us to plan what comes next is akin to putting the cart before the horse, we need to focus of being the sacrifice (if need be) that enables them. The few remaining elders and our boys will be left to rebuild. The horrors that they witness will help to guide them, much like our Forefathers. The USC doesn't need replaced, the people who fail to follow it, do. WE must stand so that they won't have to kneel. For if we lose, all is lost. And remember, THEY ASKED FOR THIS.

  5. Russia has a population of only 140 million spread over a nation larger than the US.

    Their military while effective is configured for defense of the homeland and has very limited offensive capability.

    They've expressed basically no serious interest outside areas with heavily Russian populations that are local to them.

    At most in theory they could if the US went to all out civil war make a grab at Alaska but they really don't have the manpower or the interest. Russia is not the USSR and Putin while a former Communist is not a messianic expansionist like Stalin. He is a nationalist more akin to Trump

    China maybe could grab Taiwan , probably will maybe Singapore too but again like Russia isn't an especially expansionist power

    The odds of either invading the US is slight, caveat if FedGove were falling and willing to become a Chinese satrapy you could get a Red Dawn scenario but given the Chinese character, its low risk threshold

    There are no scenarios in which a nuke would be used except by a rogue FedGov and while the rank and file would obey many dubious orders our decrepit nuclear arsenal will not be used on our own soil. The techs won't allow it and they cannot be replaced.

    More importantly the USSR which is much worse than our Government didn't and we won't either.

    No the real risk you face is an inability to allocate land in a way that results in culture and mostly ethnic homogeneity

    Its a decades long Bracken Cube conflict with vast potential for lasting destruction and a good chance the new US reforms as several nations with different customs and a much lower standard of living

    Also Europe would face some risk of being pushed by Middle East and African issues into the Russia sphere but on the whole the collapse of the US Imperia Mollia won't be a major problem outside the US

    we are humped, everyone else? Not so much.

    1. Not sure I agree, a weak central government or a central government weakened by infighting or which has long logistical lines that are continuously raided might pull back from the coasts and protect just that which could be easily defended. Mexico's incursions on our southern border would continue, but unchecked in any meaningful way and the Chinese already occupy considerable real estate which would facilitate the landing of troops in many places west of the Mississippi, including deep water ports in Mexico.

      Hat tip to Bracken, as some of this is dramatized in his books, but this is eerily similar to the Roman experience, frontiers were no longer defended and it was just a matter of time before it all came down.

      While it is possible that crash may be very long and painful, 200 years? in the case of the Romans, sooner or later we become a target for the all sorts of transnational flotsam and jetsam.

      Europe's influx is due just as much to malicious neglect as it is proximity to the MENA, so maybe that's not our path, but someone would try and there are already many here. Agree diversity is not in your best interest in that case and it's easy to see division along some discernible line at least for those who survive.

      No nukes on our own soil? Not sure that isn't a possibility either considering what's a stake, by that I mean if a corrupt power was faced with annihilation or being made a second rate power and losing said power to some force they could no longer control, what do they have to lose? Remember Jericho? Although that was make believe, remember the six misplaced nukes that made it all the way to Louisiana before being "found". That was real and the crazy megalomaniac(s) who would set one off are no less real.

      @Jose Wales, right thoughts, but it will be the sons of our sons who will prosper under the new paradigm of liberty. Let's hope we get it right and let's hope they do too.

    2. Wow ABP, that was an extraordinarily misleading comment. War...I mean a large looter-nation-state war...is effectively a certainty right now. You can go down the list of looters--all classes in all functions in all places--and see that war is not only highly beneficial to their values, but is damn near a necessity.

      "War is the health of the state," and the state is ailing these days. So we KNOW that much...there'll be a classic sort of war, and soon. Or maybe more accurately, a continuation and redoubling of a bunch of wars.

      Will anyone use nukes? Considering what we've seen people already willing to do, and particularly with regard to their kids, I see no reason to suspect there's some moral line that somebody in power is not willing to cross. Every time is always uglier than the last time; this time doesn't figure to be an exception. That doesn't mean nukes will fly, but you're far too cavalier about the possibility IMO...well, unless you know that you're safe from it.

      The real challenge is what TL intimates in his post. Nearly everyone works with the fully accepted and axiomatic premise that their life is going to depend on what other people do. That's utterly false and is the reason no forward progress is made. A person's life rests on what he himself does. Other people can mess it up alright, and even end it in the extreme, but only he himself can live it.

      Allocate land with homogeneity, eh? Did you have anyone particular in mind to do the allocating?

  6. Myself I am more inclined to dig in where I am and deal with the aftermath of whatever is to come after the "Big WTF" happens. As for Josey Wales this explains it in a nutshell: "When things look bad, and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb mad dog mean. Cause if you lose your head and you give up, then you neither live nor win, that's just the way it is."
