We Fund Our Own Slavery

I’ll just leave this here.

It’s real simple. Hit ’em where they ain’t.

You ready for that? You better be.

Learning to make terror your friend

I like this, a lot:

Americans, however, seem incapable of understanding that the natives don’t appreciate invaders any more than Americans would like an army of Muslim teenagers running around Texas, breaking down doors at midnight and generally shooting up the place while trying to uplift it with their own culture. Americans, foolishly, are living in the past and think the world still sees them as liberators, as they were in France almost 70 years ago. Is it possible, instead, that the US has turned into an aggressor abroad and a police state at home?

So far, with the exception of the events of 9/11, the US has had very little blowback for attacking foreign countries without even the courtesy of a declaration of war. However, as Washington antagonizes more groups around the world, the targets eventually will decide to take the war back to the US simply because it’s the intelligent way to fight. So in the years to come, the US is likely to see lots of terrorism in the “homeland” (a disturbing new term) itself. It will, perversely, have created exactly what it was trying to avoid.

Again, I’m not sure how else to say this, so I will, again, just throw it out there:

The lessons learned and technology deployed in the ‘war on terror’ will eventually be employed on the US population.

Don’t think for second that because you hear Lee Greenwood playing in your head that they (yes Suzie, they) won’t come for you. Your credit driven lifestyle, your corporate gig, your trendy suburban tract home, or your leased Merc won’t matter in the slightest.

What is coming is nasty, raw, and violent. You will be lucky if you live through it.

We Close Our Eyes

I’m not sure that anyone remembers Go West. I have an affectation for 80’s syntho-pop. It is one of my fundamental character flaws.

The lyrics from this tune filled my head constantly last week while my family and I were at The House O’ Mouse. It played over and over as I saw crowds from all over the world (the Argentinian aristocracy made up at least 50% of my hotel mates) shuffle to and from the lines.

While positive in every way, Disney somehow seemed old world – at least old world from a Western perspective. A decayed dinosaur from a bygone age that needed to reinvent itself in an edgier fashion to stay relevant. I heard a comment lately from a friend who said, “I’m mad at Disney because they are an organization that used to be good…”.

Take that for what it’s worth. Staying relevant to what’s left of our culture is what I’m driving towards here.

The rise of the state as the parent. The use of massive propaganda campaigns to further even the most basic of agendas, and the ever encroaching limitations on Liberty for ‘our safety’.

TL Davis talked about how we are a divided people. There is no doubt this is true – and will continue to degrade. To what end, one cannot be certain.

Resistance to this is up to you. Whether you choose to be a servile slave to the system is your choice. Free men are free because they choose to be free, not because some piece of paper or law says they are.
