This was supposed to be in reply to a thread about martial law in this area, that was closed.
Rioting will get us nowhere. Only civil disobedience can help. It's been helping americans for over 200 years. If the law is on your side, you don't
have to comply. If the law is unjust, it shouldn't be a law. Don't comply. Protest by noncompliance, have the law changed. The peolpe down in South
Africa, and India practically moved mountains in the 1930s. While the western nations were virtually eating each other, a skinny, brown, bald man,
wearing only a towel led two nations towards their salvation. TPTB were trembling. They were afraid. The people were rising up, and there was no way
for them to change the public view of those events in their favor.
Of course, eventually a fanatic was found, and killed the skinny old man. Instead of becoming a martyr of peace, the story was blown up, the sheeple
(who were so close to waking up!) turned on each other, and his death became just another reason to follow TPTB.
Back then Gandhi had the press on his side. That has changed also. TPTB have learned from their mistakes.
If the events of that time should teach us anything, then it is that violence is not the answer. And probably of equal importance, that a
hieracrchical orgainzation is too easily corrupted. Doomed to fail. We can not rely on one leader. We must take things into our own hands. Only
a de-centralized movement of freethinking individuals can truly bring change. We have to see past the fear, and the anger they are trying to invoke in
us. We have to remain calm and calculated.
While we don't really have much of a free-press anymore, we have something better: A worldwide comminications-tool. New ideas can be diseminated in
ways nobody had ever thought possible. Even now chinese dissidents are tunneling past censorship-firewalls that their government has put up in a
futile attempt to quell free speech in a medium that relies on a protocol built on unconditional access. (IP developed for free exchange of scientific
I know our founding fathers could foresee the corrupting influence that power put into the governments' hands. They knew that Congress would not be
able to withstand for ever. That's why they gave us a Republic, and a clear cut set of tools: The U.S. Constitution with its' inalienable
Bill of Rights!
(I feel sorry for all you other Nations out there!)
The 2A grants us the right to assemble and maintain our own state militias, and the right, possibly even the duty, to keep and bear our own arms.
A measure that was enacted to allow the people to put some fear into the federal government. Lest they become too powerful, and try a coup.
I do not condone violence. But I will protect myself, my family, and my Constitution!
Bearing that in mind, I will practice civil disobedience, striving for a peaceful resolution until pushed over the edge.
The key thing here, however is that the Edge starts right where TPTB (the shadow-government and their cronies ...not every politician is part
of their group!) stand out in the open, for everyone to see.
