Buppert: Statism Kills

From Bill’s intro:

“…If you aren’t making to the time to get fit, get to the range, and get your head wrapped around taking care of yourself in the future-is-now American Serbia, you are not paying attention…”

Word.

RTWT.

  1. Appropriately, the examples given are under republican forms of governance.

    • Attila, Genghis Khan, Qin Shi Huang, Vlad Tepes, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi would agree with you.

      Thanks for the reminder.

      Pretty sure that most of the readership here understands that.

    • Steven,

      No one has to convince me that governments wage war: essentially most are conflicts between plantation owners when distilled to their essence. This certainly doesn’t mean there aren’t historical outliers of genuine conflicts against tyranny. Once violence is initiated, the gloves are off for proportionate response.

      As my colleague Daniel H adroitly observes: “Anarchy doesn’t require everyone in a society to buy into non-aggression… just enough of them to kill anyone who attempts to form a non-voluntary organization.”

      What form of government constituted the majority of protagonists in WWI?

      Have you seriously researched the vast panoply of kings and queens east and west who brought their countries to war both internally and through conquest?

      I suggest you take a look at the track record of royals in conflict between 1480-1913 in over 193 reigns and see just how just and peaceful they were.

      This essay also gives the lie to the notion that female rulers are more peaceful when donning a crown. Female rulers are 27% more likely to wage war.

      A good start for you may be The Hundred Years’ War, a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 by the House of Plantagenet, rulers of the Kingdom of England, against the House of Valois, rulers of the Kingdom of France, over the succession to the French throne. “Each side drew many allies into the war. It was one of the most notable conflicts of the Middle Ages, in which five generations of kings from two rival dynasties fought for the throne of the largest kingdom in Western Europe.”

      In the end, no state has ever existed that wasn’t busy expanding its power beyond its original germination no matter what regalia it wore.

      Please try to pay closer attention to historical accuracy.

      Lord of the Rings is not an instruction manual but novel(s) and cinematic renderings.

      Cordially,

      Bill Buppert

        Same as usual for centuries, dynastic banksters.

    The US Army’s major base for training Engineers is Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. So obviously, his deeds were rewarded by a thankful nation…..

    Leonard Wood (October 9, 1860 – August 7, 1927) was a United States Army officer. He served as the Chief of Staff of the United States Army, Military Governor of Cuba, and Governor General of the Philippines. He began his military career as an army doctor on the frontier, where he received the Medal of Honor. During the Spanish–American War, he commanded the Rough Riders, with Theodore Roosevelt as his second-in-command. Wood was bypassed for a major command in World War I, but then became a prominent Republican Party leader and a candidate for the 1920 presidential nomination. (The foregoing was shamelessly stolen from Wikipedia)

  3. “…get your head wrapped around taking care of yourself in the future-is-now American Serbia…”

    Nothing to disagree with in BB’s rant, but the future-is-now Serbia is a lot like Germany or Poland or France or all those other states living in the shadows of their former glory: smaller in geographic territory but still states. Size is subject to change over time.

    Find me a geographic location not recognized by nearby or distant states and you still have a local warlord (despite whatever name they might go by) ruling people through the threat of force. There is no place you can go to on the entire planet where that hasn’t been the rule for a few thousand years now. Humans establish hierarchies and it doesn’t matter if it’s as small as a marriage/nuclear family or a corporation involving thousands. Despite hashing out the minor details of how things run day to day the real decision of who’s in really in charge usually happened in the first 10 minutes.

    That’s the reality people have to wrap their heads around.

    • This.

      Until the concept of constitutional law was originated in Britain, and a king was found guilty under it, and the eventually “restored” king and his successors bound to it, we have thousands of years of the king being the guy with the biggest sword, willing to use it.

      Without it, even the armed sheep are relying on muscle to enforce their will, and no matter how full of sweetness and light are their intentions at the beginning, when you rely on unregulated raw power, eventually someone’s going to be sheared a bit too closely. Witness the Cromwell “republic”– having killed the king, they had to deal with a nation, and without a claim to legitimacy– just the rule of the Sword.

      • “Until the concept of constitutional law was originated in Britain, and a king was found guilty under it”

        Ah, so there occasionally is something new under the sun, after all. Hmm, if it happened once, it could happen again. It just takes an armed population with sufficient access to reliable information…

  4. Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

  5. Name (required)

    The Moro massacre was a bad illustration of a good point. What do you call 600 dead mohammedans? A good start. But some of them were children? Nits make lice.

    Mohammedans are always at war with us, even when we are not at war with them. Government is a dangerous servant and a terrible master. Don’t let that stop us from destroying our enemies.

    The history of the American genocide of the Filipino people was documented in the book: LITTLE BROWN BROTHER. After reading it, I concluded that time travel is impossible. Otherwise, I would have gone back and strangled Theodore Roosevelt in his cradle. Sad and shameful the USA was, and still is.

  7. Remember that ‘gov’ is the software generated illusion that the parasite class employs as its ‘OS’ to coerce, enslave, rape, kidnap, steal and murder. It makes no difference whether it’s the parasite class’s iteration during Aristotle’s day or during the four-eyed moustacheod sawed off shitweasels murder for ‘glory’ along with his fellow sociopath leonard wood in Cuba let alone wood’s bloody tyranny in the Philippines later on (no, we had NO fucking business in Cuba, let alone the Philippines..never forget that the parasite class also stole the Hawaiian Islands roughly at the same time) with that same sawed off shitweasel roosevelt as the head rat later on.

    It’s not at all surprising that the parasite class via its enemidiea uses patriotism as a convenient propaganda and indoctrination tool.

    Anything that can inflame the passions and keep the sleeple from thinking critically is always welcomed by them so they can sell the next ‘Forever War on [….]’ to enrich themselves like dick cheney via hailburton in Iraq, not to mention john mc’tumor.

    As long as they can insert it into a time slot between ‘The Spew’, ‘Dancing with Retards’ and ‘professional sports’ and as long as the sleeple keep nodding in downs syndrome incomprehension while dumbly smiling, the people will continue to be harvested as tax cattle or offered up as sacrificial soldier slaves.

    The problem for the parasite class is that the dirt people are waking up more and more and are rejecting the enemedia tentacle teat and even the paradigm of the parasite class and it’s fiction of ‘gov’. The fog of ‘legitimacy’ is rapidly disipating and lifting.

    They are beginning to ‘see’ without the need for “Hoffman” glasses.

    I realize the purpose of the articles and reference to Twain was to point out the abuses of government. But people, the left in this country, including elements of our own government would gladly round your asses up and do to you the very same thing the communist did in the Ukraine and else where.

    What happened in the Philippines was a result of frustration and exuberance of government power. Those troops were given a green light to murder a bunch of helpless people in the name of a manifest destiny or raw government power. we saw something similar at WACO and Ruby Ridge. Remember the old saying of government can not control it they seek to kill it

    Here is a question for you; Do any of you believe that government is your friend or is here to help you?

    • DWEEZIL THE WEASEL

      There was a little more to it than that. After defeating the Spaniards in Manila Bay, George Dewey had signed an agreement with Emilio Aguinaldo and other Filipino patriots giving them the okay for sovereign self-government. Once John Hay, and the rest of the Deep State at the time found this out, they went ballistic.
      The Brits had a great influence on US foreign policy at the time. And, the German Far East Naval Squadron was just across a short stretch of ocean over in Shanghai. The Brits did not want the Krauts horning in on any commerce deals with the lucrative markets available in the Philippine Archipelago, let alone establishing bases and coaling stations there. The US reneged on the Dewey-Aguinaldo agreement and the fight was on. “Big Bill Taft”, who never really wanted the presidency, went along with it.
      Another interesting highlight was that a large number of the troops sent were state militias, not the regular army. There is a very vivid account of the fighting described in the book: THE ORDEAL OF SAMAR. It documents the role of the USMC in putting down the “Insurrection”. This country is way overdue for a Deus ex Machina judgement from someone way above my pay grade.
