The carefully constructed left-right divide is certainly in evidence in the left’s lack of outreach to police and the military, who after all are sworn to protect and defend that which is being destroyed by the puppetmasters. Their willingess to take such an oath is a heck of an indication that their hearts are in the right place, by and large. So where is the left on this particular issue:
“County Sheriff Project: Enforcing the Bill of Rights, Protecting the People’s Liberties
“Free America Now! The county sheriffs are key to taking back our Republics! Please support these brave oath keepers.
” … That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact to which the states are parties;…and that in case of a deliberate, palpable and dangerous exercise of other powers not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose for arresting the pro[gress] of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them.”
“Source: The Virginia Resolution, adopted by the Virginia Senate on December 24, 1798, as a protest against the Alien and Sedition Acts passed by Congress. It was authored by James Madison, in collaboration with Thomas Jefferson, who authored a set of resolutions for Kentucky.
“The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent to. Let the national government be entrusted with the defense of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations; the State governments with the civil rights, law, police, and administration of what concerns the State generally; the counties with the local concerns of the counties, and each ward direct the interests within itself. It is by dividing and subdividing these republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations, until it ends in the administration of every man’s farm by himself; by placing under every one what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best. What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating all cares and powers into one body.” – Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson was right on. He had an intuitive grasp of emergence in complex systems. The problem is generic and present in all sufficiently large governments. This lesson of history has been forgotten at great peril to all of us.
It’s time for leftists to recognize that the federal government is lost for the foreseeable future. Whatever the utility of mass action in the building of highways, libraries, public schools etc has become irrelevant. The tools for such action on a national level are no longer under our control, they are being used against us. At this time, in this context, there is no difference between socialism and fascism. The only option which remains is to disengage from the system. The system is doomed, the only question is whether it will destroy your community in the process of destroying itself. Localize now. Turn off your TV, step away from your computer, look around at reality. There’s a lot to work with right in your own neighborhood. You don’t need walmart or federal reserve notes to help your neighbor and get help in return. And guess what, your brain is designed for such social networking. Time to fire up those atrophied neurons and rediscover your innate human power, which lies in human community. This is what the ruling elites don’t get: empathy is a far more potent source of social organization than deception and fear. A lot more fun too. Their psychopathy is their weakness, not their strength.
