Sometimes we student's of history have a front row seat!


Let me elucidate.

1. Everyone of these outlooks is totalitarian....
Communism, Socialism, Liberalism, Fascism, Progressivism, and Nazism.

Each and every one of 'em has the very same desire for the final chapter in the journey toward society's Utopia.
Here it is:

"Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz" ("The community comes before the individual") concretizes the collectivist belief that individuals have no rights and that "the greater good" is the only standard of value. Under such a system, man is not an end to himself, only a tool to be sacrificed for the Führer, autocrat or ruling mob.
Only capitalism regards man as a sovereign individual with an inalienable right to his own life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Government recognition and protection of individual rights is the hallmark of a moral, peaceful, productive society.
Sipsey Street Irregulars: The lie before the crime. "Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz" ("The community comes before the individual")

2. The view and the attempt to gain control has been, largely, successful in America.... 65,915,795 dunces agreed to march lock-step in the '08 election.
But.....there are signs that quite a number are having buyer's remorse!




Something startling happened on Thursday of this week.....
I'll explain that, and the title in a moment....but first background to this story.



3. The more astute among us recognize that 'Environmentalism' is not based on science, but on the advance of totalitarianism: it is the excuse by Leftist government to co-opt private property.

“…when land is public, or if it can be made quasi-public with so many regulations attached that most property rights are removed, people can’t afford to fight, having lost the better part of their wealth. So ideally for the movement, regulations should be almost infinite in reach and so imprecise as to be interpreted in a dozen ways. All that‘s needed to force these regulations is sufficient documentation of collapse, supported by books, movies, documentaries, museum exhibits, cartoons, newspapers and magazine stories, the devotion of fervid columnists, et cetera, ad infinitum, to convince the public that “something must be done.” This “feeling” is backed by slightly more substantive hundred-page full-color glossy PDFs aimed at policy makers and politicians.”
Nickson, “Eco-Fascists,” p. 170.

a. "...the ‘Eco-Fascists’ have managed the sequestration of productive land unmatched since the age of kings. Over 30% of the American land base lies under no-use or limited-use restrictions….almost 700 million acres. The Bureau of Land Management and the Department of the Interior are targeting the confiscation of another 213 million acres, bringing the count to nearly half of the continent! http://r-calfusa.com/Trade/property_rights/100900BLMLeakedMemo.pdf



Americans have pretty much, rolled over at governmental overreach....
...up to now.
There are signs of an insurrection that will determine the future of America.
Coming right up......

A bad law was nullified by jury. The power of government resides with the people.

...I was less wordy...

But wrong.

"The power of government resides with the people."
Really?



I recommend Talmon's book....

1. The latest variation of totalitarianism is neither religious, nor even political: it is cultural. “Totalitarian democracy” is a term made famous by J. L. Talmon to refer to a system of government in which lawfully elected representatives maintain the integrity of a nation state whose citizens, while granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of the government.

a. Cultural totalitarianism is rule by the individual freed from all external authority or constraints, morality fully privatized with Judeo-Christian traditions under attack.

b. Moral and cultural relativism are predominant; no lifestyle is better than any other.

c. Paradoxically, relativist doctrine becomes absolutely unassailable: it brooks no challenges or deviations.

2. “Totalitarian democracy” preaches absolute truth and a messianic vision of a “pre-ordained, harmonious and perfect scheme of things, to which men are irresistibly driven, and at which they are bound to arrive”; its politics is but one aspect of an all-embracing philosophy. Both “liberal” and “totalitarian” democracy affirm the value of liberty; but for the first, liberty means individual spontaneity, for the second, reconciliation to an absolute, collective purpose—a kind of self-willed slavery, in fact.

....“totalitarian democracy” culminated eventually in Stalinism.

4. Now....how do federal restrictions on property pose a problem for liberty...???



Perhaps some know that before it became “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” in our Declaration of Independence, John Locke wrote that man has a right to “life, liberty, and property.http://www.forbes.com/sites/maurape...ial-meaning-behind-life-liberty-and-property/



5. "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.... Locke argued in his Two Treatises of Government that political society existed for the sake of protecting "property", which he defined as a person's "life, liberty, and estate".

a. "That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society, they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; namely, the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing and obtaining happiness and safety." Virginia Declaration of Rights" Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia




6. "A number of times throughout history, tyranny has stimulated breakthrough thinking about liberty. ...John Locke....expressed the radical view that government is morally obliged to serve people, namely by protecting life, liberty, and property. He explained the principle of checks and balances to limit government power. He favored representative government and a rule of law. He denounced tyranny. He insisted that when government violates individual rights, people may legitimately rebel." John Locke Natural Rights to Life Liberty and Property The Freeman Foundation for Economic Education



None of these six, Communism, Socialism, Liberalism, Fascism, Progressivism, and Nazism, endorse the American view stated above.

"It is a maxim that in every government, there must exist, somewhere, a supreme, sovereign, absolute, and uncontrolable power; but this power resides always in the body of the people; and it never was, or can be delegated to one man, or a few; the great Creator has never given to men a right to vest others with authority over them, unlimited either in duration or degree." - Supreme Court Justice James Wilson 1793

Bogus.

You certainly don't agree with every Supreme Court decision.

Nor, I hope with this fabrication, by Chief Justice Hughes:
"....Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes provides a modern answer to that question. In a 1907 speech Hughes stated “we are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is...” Today, though Hughes is dead, he leads the chorus of jurists and judicial activists that want to remake society in their own image, and try to use the Constitution to do it."

Since when does quoting one Justice obligate one to agree with all Justices? Nice strawman there.

The Left is never for people....but for power.

They were apparently speaking of the idealistic abstract view of our government.

9. Some validation of the insurrection, the armed protests, occurred this Thursday....

"PORTLAND, Ore. — Armed antigovernment protesters led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy were acquitted Thursday of federal conspiracy and weapons charges stemming from the takeover of a federally owned wildlife sanctuary in Oregon last winter.
The surprise acquittals of all seven defendants in Federal District Court were a blow to government prosecutors, who had argued that the Bundys and five of their followers used force and threats of violence to occupy the reserve. But the jury appeared swayed by the defendants’ contention that they were protesting government overreach and posed no threat to the public." http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/28/u...-takeover-of-oregon-wildlife-refuge.html?_r=0




10. Hardly any of us intend an armed protest against our government, one which we no longer see as advancing the interests of the American people.....
But there are signs of a much larger, in not armed, insurrection against the totalitarians.....Liberals see it for what it is....but fail to recognize it as the spirit of real Americans.

"Trump
announced during the debate that he will not accept the results of the presidential election, unless he wins.
If that is not a plan to foment insurrection, I do not know what is. This is not the kind of thing that one says lightly, but it is chillingly accurate." Neil Buchanan: Trump is flirting with insurrection



The Trump vote is not for that particular individual....it is a form of insurrection.

....and the Liberals know enough to fear what it represents. The election could be an American insurrection.
