From Sun Tzu to Von Clauzwitz, military strategists have been insisting for eons that the first thing you do when confronting the enemy is to disarm
Both state and federal governments have been trying to disarm the public since 1933 at least. However, there are recent Supreme Court rulings that
have affirmed the individual right to keep and bear arms. The problem has been and continues to be the military industrial complex. Since the
purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to ensure that the people are capable of quelling invasions from enemies both foreign and domestic, and if the enemy
is domestic, and is the awesome military machinery of the domestic government, then arguably people have the right to keep and bear nuclear weapons,
they have the right to park harrier jets in their backyard, or tanks, and have the right to stockpile as many lethal weapons as they can.
In that regard, no doubt the government has endeavored to "disarm" the public. Of course, it would be insane to argue that everyone has the right
to keep and bear nuclear weapons. No one has the right to keep and bear nuclear weapons, including governments.
The key here is endeavoring to disarm our own government. The best effective strategy in doing this is to starve the beast. The surest way to starve
that beast take us right back to individual effort. Countless people keep forking over their hard earned income to a dubious tax scheme. Most people
forking the income over are most likely not even liable for the damn tax to begin with and it is through the voluntary self assessment by filing a
valid tax return and making a contractual agreement to be a "taxpayer" by signing - under penalty of perjury that - to the best of their knowledge -
they are indeed liable.
Non acquiescence can only work on an individual basis. When enough individuals refuse to acquiesce then we are united. Waiting for this unity will
only ensure more waiting.
