And for the TINVOWOOT crowd (to which I belong), consider deeply the following:
With nothing approaching a defined, agreed-upon end state, there is no successful fighting our way out of the problems either.
Try the following thought experiment:
By Divine intervention, all of the collectivists currently in power at the local/state/Federal level disappear.
What are left are the masses, and the not-currently-in-power politicals across the spectrum.
Judging from the discussions around this place over the years, I am not sure that once things moved beyond the “defending my neighborhood” tactical level, the so-called “freedom movement” could restrain itself from going internecine immediately – anarchist versus Constitutionalist, Christian versus atheist, and so forth.
Team Anti-Freedom at least has its goal of establishing authoritarian rule as broadly as a warlord can control implicit in its name.
But Team Freedom?
Not so much.
This lack of defined end state is a massive strategic problem, and it is not going away.
Discuss – rationally – below.
