Please read and contemplate all of the points in Tom Baugh’s latest essay.
Then pass it on.
Read and study the story of the 47 Ronin.
Great post by Baugh. I can only wonder how it might have prevented Ball or Stark from leaping to the extremes that they did. Perhaps it will save some other desperate soul in a time need.
The notion of helping someone – for example, like David Olofson, when he needed help – is priceless and an excellent idea. At the same time, I am having trouble with the concept of quietly accepting my chains as the State lays them upon me, then jerks and rattles them at will.
What if the time for redress, for correcting the injustice and long train of abuses doesn’t come during my lifetime? Am I buying a sugar-coated placebo here that will keep me a good little boy on the plantation, who keeps telling himself, “My time will come”, as I tote that bale and let Massa beat me down, time and time again?
Help others? Sure. That is the right thing to do. Cower and wear the Gandhi suit in hopes someday I might be able to join with a “host of others” and rise up against injustice? Doesn’t feel right for me. I think sending a few to hell as they try to make _my_ life hell might be a better choice. A personal choice, to be sure, but one that suits me.
Ball is the salient example of the men we need to reach.
They’re “scum” according to “conventional wisdom” — “Deadbeat Dads” and worse.
I picked the monicker I use BEFORE my awakening — when I’d first begun to be abused by the system and wanted to differentiate myself as “different” from all those OTHER men…
“I’m not a DEADBEAT Dad — I’m a DEDICATED Dad”!
I thought I was RARE – the “exception” who was being abused by “The System” because of the sins of all those “deadbeats.”
It took me a while to come to the understanding that it is The System that produces BEAT DEAD Dads — and that the stereotypical “Deadbeat” is so rare as to be a statistical Zero.
Do you want to know where to find the men who will lead? Scour the “Family Courts” — their docket is CHOCK FULL of men who are utterly bewildered by the abuses being perpetrated on them, men whose faith in “Truth, Justice and The American Way” is being rocked to its core!
Still, it isn’t easy convincing such a man that TJ&TAM is BS — even as he’s living the proof!
For years I made a “hobby” out of helping such men – then I got physically too sick and tired to continue. It’s long past time I resume — if you’re interested in helping, drop me a line and I’ll gladly pass along what wisdom I’ve gained…
Precisely my thoughts as to where help is most needed. My only ‘fear’ is that as a woman, I’d be the last person in the world such a man would give even the time of day to. As a writer, perhaps even just ‘getting their side of the story out’ onto Men’s Rights websites would be a start. I’d appreciate your feedback for sure. I’m in the “DF/W area”.
“an indispensable condition is full help from the people of the area, without which a guerrilla band will be captured and exterminated by the public force”
Ah, back to doing electoral politics, just in time for 2012. Liberty doesn’t exist, there is only license, which comes from majorities.
Instead, how about working on ways to defend yourself from neighbors who would impose their religion on you?
Baugh makes good and salient points. I am, however sick and fucking tired of some asshole making points that I am a ” lillywhite”. Until this convoluted moron can stop his pre-occupation with the fact that there are a lot of white people in the freedom movement, he can blow it out of his ass sideways, and then go fuck himself.
Amen. Anyone who bemoans this or any movement as “too white” has no understanding of racial differences in temperament, culture, and ability. The United States was a white invention because it could not have been otherwise. This movement is destined to remain overwhelmingly “lillywhite” regardless of Baugh’s disapproval.
Personally, I have a hard time taking seriously anyone who is 40lbs overweight, particularly if they’re talking about combat.
I guess General Knox should not have been listened to or followed then?
WHOA back the truck up. He is not talking about race. He is talking about those people who have never had anything bad happen to them. Those people who have never found themselves on the wrong end of a fingerprint card. People who are “lilly-white” have a general fear of doing anything that might ruin that status and thus are frozen with inaction. They will not rise up to help someone who is not as “pure” as they are. You want to know why few if any “patriots” will rally around the victims of police abuse? Because those victims are not pure. They have a checkered past and the lilly-white “patriots” cant get over the deep planted seed of thought that because of the checkered past they somehow deserved whatever beat down .gov put on them. No lilly-white wants to be soiled by association with someone who is less than pure. Until every true patriot gets the fuck over this nonsense we will be useless. Get accustomed to the idea of being a brother to pirates and buccaneers, bikers, drug dealers and bootleggers. You are not going to find members of the black palm society(those willing to get their hands dirty ie black) in the tea and crumpet crowd.
Patriots are pushed to kamikaze into federal buildings and self-immolation because they don’t see alternatives… because the ‘movement’ doesn’t really offer EFFECTIVE alternative actions beyond endless keyboard pounding or the occasional rally where they can have their picture taken and profiled by the enemy, while nothing gets done… save putting precious coin into some pay-triot’s pockets. That’s it.
The Patriot Movement needs to MOVE. Effectively. We have needed to deliver results-when we can’t even get our message of Freedom across people effectively lobotomized by chemicals, miseducation and television.
So we need to start producing real world results now. Victories. Ground gained. Stand up for victims of government abuse, like the aformentioned, Sgt. Charles Dyer, Ed and Elaine Brown and God knows who else. You see a corrupt Lousiana Parish getting obnoxious about stealing the People’s Liberty Teeth through color of law, organize a emergency recall campaign and sweep them out of office. Media production tools are common and cheap enough for Patriots to make our own shows and movies, sell them and awaken and educate through entertainment… God knows our own crap could do a better job than those Hollywood buttrammers.
And the infighting has to stop-unless there’s a traitor in our midst. Always have to watch for ringers….
“Lily-white”, as I read it, referred to the unwillingness of some to consider making common cause with drug dealers, hookers, smugglers, corrupt police officers, outlaw bikers, and other people outside of the local Tea Party crowd.
Myself? Those kinds of folks are good potential allies, at least in a tactical sense.
Of course, I have already accepted that 98% or more of the “nice people” will either collaborate or continue to consent to their own rape.
I sorta expect to be shat upon for this but I’m just gonna throw it out there anyway in the hope that some of my brand of crap sticks. My little scrant is not directed at any one person but rather at a label of self-description used by a mass of well-meaning people.
I’m not particularly wise or successful except for sometimes within the modest confines of my own conscience but FWIW I’ve learned to become inherently suspicious of any collaborative effort that characterizes itself as a “movement” with aspirations for becoming mass movement. Beware of ‘movements’. The bigger they get the more likely they will bite the hands that fed them; Which is to say they can easier than not be captured and collectively redirected toward aims inimical to those the movement’s founders intended. Just look around at the state of the country whose very existence once epitomized independence by/for the individual man with power over said man decreasing as authority ascended the ladder of government. The American miracle has been turned on its head.
OpFor has for time immemorial refined corruption from within down to a science…A find em, fix em, and f*ck em en mass targeting science.
Starting with a moral individual with moral principles worth defending and hardening into non-Newtonian fluidity, the smaller the unit of cooperation is, the less likely it is for corruption to gain a decisive/divisive momentum. While a shiny movement may impart a patina of legitimacy and strength for Moral men to use as a base for expansion of liberty, it also allows the morally weak, lazy, or outright corrupt to shield themselves from the light. I see no “movement” that has successfully navigated the minefields of corruption since the one true revolution…And even that lays prostrate and breathless before the corrupted mis-leadership of disparate movements. I aspire to be a Patriot. The best damn one my heart and balls will allow – A man immune to the influences of those holding the reigns of propaganda passing out credentials for acceptance; not a mere member of some easily subvert-able [mass] movement.
Anyway, besides my personal problems with the contemporary association and popular understanding implied in the attempted branding, movements bring to mind ‘masses’ of asses perched upon their thrones pinching turds off into a body of clear water rendering it muddy and undrinkable – even after filtration. Only distillation with fire and a cool down of steam in a clean place renders it free of disease again…Unless one thinks about where it came from.

Guard your own Liberty jealously, for few others will.
