Obligations of (Dis)Obedience

Addressed to the four tiers of society (i.e., rulers, makers, takers, and useful idiots), Troy Robinson urges:

…Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask not what you can do for your country.

Ask instead what you MUST do for yourself.

    As I’m seeing burnout across the Liberty boards I’d say that post and the comments pretty much sums the whole shebang up.

    • I think what you are seeing is a portion of our citizens that are forcing themselves to see truths no matter how much they goes against what is wished to be true.
      There are a lot of things I would have true but they are no better than the fantasies of the useful idiots. The difference between them and us is we must force ourselves to recognize this, it is the path to the only way out.
      To gain liberty you come to eye to eye with truth.

      The experience is rarely pleasant.

  3. The platitude is the oath has no expiration. It was an enlistment oath and when that condition ended so did the bind of the oath. I know you cant pick and choose on an oath so that is how it must be.
    One thing is certain, I wont be taking any more of them.

    Decent enough ideas in theory regarding the “Maker” class, but it basically consigns those of us in that class to death/imprisonment after isolated, effectively meaningless individual stands.

    Saying “no” to a power isn’t hard – 2 and 3 year old kids do it all the time to their parents. Making the “no” stick is difficult. The simple fact is, unless you have a good bit more power than whoever you are denying, your “no” will simply be disregarded, and you might just get your butt spanked, too.

      I’m not sure how meaningless it is if you exterminate a bunch of pigs before you go…

        You seem to be under the assumption that you are a 1 man army. Ever occur to you that they’ll blindside or ambush you? Then again, as a 1 man army, you’re always 100% on the alert , right?

    • I know beyond any refutation it would be shocking to our “rulers” to comprehend how much power resides in the hands of a determined man that refuses to be anything but liberated.
      Usually that hits them on about the thirteenth step …
