As I Head Off for Boomershoot . . .
Something for you to think about, from Billy Beck:
All the political initiative now is with the forces of Amsoc. Where the so-called conservatives have fought generations of piece-meal rear-guard action against the integral resolution of socialism to corrode its worst enemy — the practical and living ideal of freedom: America — out of existence, and as they have done so as effects of disintegrated philosophy, the socialists are assuming the commanding heights in full political battle gear.
It is important to understand that this can only and inevitably mean physical battle gear, right in front of your eyes, right here in America. The spirit of this place that was not born of the slave’s obeisance will require this government to bare its fangs. I still believe that. The ways in which and the singular souls from Americans select their values are not yet so beaten to any alien molds so well that they will peaceably stand for the conformations that this government will eventually require and demand — not “ask”.
Do read the whole thing. Oh, and this:
A Thought For Your Day
“Officers of the police or revenue easily adapt themselves to any form of government.”
(Edward Gibbon, “The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire”, Vol. I, ch. 3, footnote 20, p. 59)
Also from Billy.
I’ll be on the road the next couple of days, but if at all possible, I’ll be posting at least a little something in the evenings.
