How To Become An American Extremist In Style!

For most of us in America today, childhood was a time of vast and unassailable dreams.  What we could become, what the world could become, was limited only by the strength of spirit setting aloft our ideas, and this strength, as all young people instinctively know, is infinite.  While the possibilities of the future seemed boundless, few of us, including myself, ever considered “political extremism” as a viable lifestyle decision.  Astronaut?  Maybe.  Filmmaker?  Sure.  Enemy Belligerent?  Not so much…

While each of us is ultimately a product of our own decisions and internal choices, even beyond the influences of our environment, the cultural atmosphere of our age certainly determines the manner in which we are able to express our individual character.  The brilliant and talented are sometimes cast into roles of poverty and obscurity.  The obscene and devious often ascend to positions of righteous reverence.  Good men are often painted as villains for centuries, while evil men are regarded as saints for just as long.  The point is, the times in which we live rarely express in an honest way who we really are, unless, of course, we take hold of them tight, and cut out a new path for history to travel…

Those men and women who drive forward without fear or doubt to assert control over their destinies, and force their era to reflect their principles, rather than their principles becoming a side-note to their era, whether honorable or dishonorable, are invariably considered “extreme”.  Most human beings waft about with the tides of time as passengers; spectators watching events unfold from the sidelines.  Those who swim against the currents, or who attempt to change their flow altogether, are usually rare and confounding to the masses.  Therefore, that which the masses consider extremism is often merely that which they consider far outside what they have grown accustomed.

Frankly, history has proven over and over again that the majority is usually wrong about most things.  Groups and collectives do not create, or discover, or advance humanity.  Only individuals are capable of this.  All great concepts begin as seeds within independent people, and then spread like wildfire as they educate others.  A society that strives for artificial normality and collectivist harmonization is a society on the verge of chaos and death.  Only free hearts and minds give man hope of survival.

In my view, that which is extreme is NOT that which violates the boundaries of “normal” society, but which violates the boundaries of inherent truth, and conscience.  In an honest society, an extremist is someone who denies the universal foundations of existence, and tries to play demigod in a fantasy world of moral relativism and rationalized criminality.  A disjointed freak of nature that seeks to impose his twisted will upon others.  Unfortunately, the honest definition of extremism is not the most popular amongst the frothing elitists that reside over the functions of our political structure today.

Life is a bummer like that…

So instead, why not embrace the label that the establishment is so keen to pigeonhole us with, and make it our own?  I have found that the less I care about the critical eye of others, the more free I am to change things for the better.  Certainly, by any standard of our current national leadership and by the throngs that support it, I am an extremist.  Luckily, this does not concern me.  It is not important to be accepted by the mainstream, it is only important to remain objectively correct in one’s position.  In the grand scheme of the world, to be a thorn in the side of so-called “proper society” is a sure fire path to a life without regret.  America was founded by undesirables, and built by non-conformists.  We are a nation whose blood is thick with defiance and outright knock-out revolutionary badass anti-authoritarian hostility.  We cut kings down to size.

At least, we used to…

In modern America, it’s not nice or pleasant or practical to approach political problems with the attitude of a radical.  That puts people off.  And there’s nothing worse than having people not like you, right?  Better to play the game and hope that a better world will simply materialize out of the ether.  Don’t rock the boat, especially when you’re in it…

For those of us in the Liberty Movement, this passive approach just doesn’t satiate our ravenous hunger for the bizarre.  And by “bizarre”, I mean honest.  Our time here is short, and usually ugly, and filled with people and circumstances and disasters and biases and abhorrences and painful moments and sometimes smells that we would much rather not deal with.  The least we can ask for is a little truth.  If I have to be confronted with crusted wheezing gas-bloated nightmare figures like John McCain or Joseph Lieberman, men who would label me a terrorist if they could, then I should be allowed the satisfaction of a concrete fact or two before I am shipped of to the nearest Halliburton run military sanctioned prison facility for re-education and naked dog-piling (which these men seem to particularly enjoy). 

The truth is the first and greatest sin in the dark pestilent pit of any active tyranny.  I recommend it highly.  Seek the truth, and ye shall be fined…or jailed.  This is the first step towards a glorious career as an American extremist, and living such a lifestyle can be fun and exciting, if one follows these simple guidelines:

1)  Make A Ruckus

Identify the imperative issues of the day that most people don’t want to be confronted with……..and then talk about them constantly.  But don’t just talk about them; talk about them intelligently and with an informative stance.  That really drives the willfully ignorant crazy.  Make your position and the facts behind it visible in the mainstream, through writing, videos, protest, graffiti, bumper stickers, tatts, whatever…

The establishment’s first line of defense is not necessarily to suppress the truth, but to keep it on the fringe of society, out of sight of the average citizen.  Your job is to shove the truth in people’s faces, so that they are forced to at least acknowledge that it exists, even if they don’t want to accept it.

2)  Laugh At Petty Authority

Most authority in our modern world is, really, only petty authority.  True authority is fostered by a sense of respect that is earned through leadership by example.  The greatest authorities are those who teach, not those who command, and political governance is null and void if that governance was attained through subversion and lies. 

Of course, this view is a proven fast track to the nearest solitary confinement cell, but hey, living such a rock ‘n roll flavored "extreme" existence is not without risks…

Extremists recognize that a dishonest politician is only a conman in a nice suit, and nothing more.  They recognize that a law enforcement official that has no regard for Constitutional liberties, or for human decency, is just a gun toting goon in a badge and costume, and is not due any more respect than a common criminal.  They see alphabet agencies as extensions of a system that no longer holds any principles beyond sustaining its own wretched existence, and rightly look down upon those who would sell out to such cancerous bureaucracies for a paycheck and some undeserved prestige.  They laugh at such people, because in the grand scheme of things, these “great pillars” of our nation are, in fact, tragically ridiculous.

3)  Refuse To Be Pegged With Arbitrary Labels

I once entered into a debate with a long time Democrat over the painfully farcical presidency of Barack Obama.  After discovering that I held the same exact views on George W. Bush, he became frustrated and nearly infuriated, because he could not place me into a preconceived political box.  He complained that my stance could not be readily categorized, and this interfered with his ability to argue with me. 

I replied…. “Good!  That’s exactly the way it should be!”

Extremism itself is an arbitrary label, whose definition is shifted by those in power to fit any person or group that happens to get in their way at any particular time.  However, to take this label and make it ours, we definitely can’t allow ourselves to be affiliated with hollow and meaningless political parties like the Democrats or the GOP, not to mention all the prefabricated and shallow philosophical platforms they engender.  Every problem and situation should be approached as new, and should be dealt with using social and legal methods that WORK, as opposed to those that happen to follow a particular party line.  There should be, at bottom, as many political viewpoints as there are individuals, not only two homogenized standards that we are forced to choose from in the hopes that one will be “less destructive” than the other.

4)  Prepare For Life Without Window Shopping

A surefire way to become an extremist today is to suggest preparation for any kind of disaster.  For the average American, there is no such thing as a tomorrow without Happy Meals and Nikes.  To suggest the possibility is akin to dancing naked on the freeway with a Gadsden Flag.  Despite the fact that in countries across the planet setting aside goods for survival is as common as mowing the lawn here in the U.S., many in America can’t fathom adopting such habits.  This is because many still believe that the system will protect them from harm no matter what happens.  The “extremist” thinks differently.

He realizes that there have been too many instances in the past when government was not helpful to those in the midst of catastrophe, and in some cases, was even the cause of greater harm.  He seeks to remove his dependence on this system, and procure the insurance necessary to help himself if the need ever arises.

The Federal Government has seen fit to identify the mere act of prepping as a sign of possible extremism, so, let’s get “extreme”, shall we?  I would rather be extreme and alive, than a non-threatening and law abiding corpse.

5)  Build A Terrifying Gun Collection

If the contents of your house doesn’t scare the living hell out of your yuppie next door neighbor, then you aren’t an extremist yet.  Time to pay off the layaway on that 50. Cal! 

Firearms ownership is a widespread American pastime, and is growing by the month.  However, there seems to be a misconception that this pastime is about our “sportsman’s heritage”, or self defense against local crime.  Nope.  That’s not why the extremist stockpiles an arsenal (an arsenal is defined as however many guns you happen to have when the ATF shows up at your doorstep).  He owns scary guns to defend against rogue governments and the rise of the totalitarian dynamic.  Freaky, I know…

Forget all this sportsman nonsense!  We own weapons to dissuade oligarchy from getting comfortable on our couches!  Our concern is not the wildlife…

6)  Question The Accepted Reality Of Everything

You can’t be an extremist if you believe everything you hear from the TV.  Actually, you can’t be an extremist if you believe ANYTHING you hear on the TV.  An extremist takes absolutely no stock in what the mainstream media says without further investigation, and would rather be caught dead than caught parroting talking points from cable news broadcasts.

Is a certain philosophical or political position suddenly considered “common knowledge”?  Be suspicious.  Is a particular methodology or debate point appearing in every journalistic outlet at the same exact time with the same exact one sided narrative?  Time to pull out the B.S. detector.  Is a politician opening his mouth and talking?  Have a shovel handy…

The extremist’s job is not necessarily to be contradictory just for the sake of contrariness.  It is, though, his job to be critical, discerning, and discriminating against that which doesn’t hold up to the light of candid examination.  While there is always room for a certain amount of “interpretation”, ultimately, if a circumstance rings false, it must be exposed.  Period. 

Even if that exposure is harmful to the state of our country or our culture in the short term, deceit left unchecked in the long term is the single greatest destroyer of entire civilizations, and is absolutely unacceptable, especially to the extremist…

I think it is clear that extremists in an environment of despotism are in most cases people who refuse to abandon that which makes humanity whole.  We are, indeed, dangerous, but only to those who would do liberty harm.  A life of conformity is a life wasted, and a life of slavery is no life at all.  Whatever we may be called today, what we leave behind is ultimately what defines us.  Labels are irrelevant.  If I am an “extremist” because I refuse to participate in the delusion that is America in the new millennium, then so be it.  I am more than happy to join the long list of insurrectionaries who inhabit this nation today and who have been the legitimate makers of the world for generations.  Everything in history revolves not around governments, but rule-breakers.  They alone decide whether humanity will live tight in the fist of the authoritarian machine, or live free in the wilds of unbridled independence.

 

One man with courage is a majority.

Thomas Jefferson

Well, the promise that "the USA" would provide the dream was bullshit.

The dream itself, however - of growth and discovery - was not bullshit. We just need to stop thinking that the state is a worthy tool for reaching it.

Here's a suggestion.

The next time you talk to a person who is pro some status quo candidate (Mitt, Rick, Newt or Barry Oilbomber (Bush's 3rd term)) ask them why they are so fucking stupid.  Ask them if they would like to put a sticker for their party (Coke or Pepsi, which is RepubliCrook or DemoCon is irrelevant, they are interchangeable) on their car.

America, the land of Pepsi and Coke.  Let's stop drinking this shit.

The extremists are the ones going along with the crowd.  (In my mind, that's just about everybody but me.) As is the case with epic historical cycles like now unfolding, reality may only become clear for the majority in retrospect:

Politicians should act in the best interests of the country without regard to their own political futures.  This is why term limits must exist to held reduce corruption.

 

1 term in the senate.  1 term in the house.  1 term as governor.  1 term as sherrif.  1 term as president.

 

Re-election should NEVER weigh into the decision making process.

It's easy to be an extremist.

To be unconventional, a free spirit, a non-conformist, self reliant, fearless, bet against all odds and maintain ethos, humbleness and humility. That's what defines a true and complete human being.

IF......

by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

No.

All that is required to be Human is to be. Be Here Now as Ram Dass said.

We all forget that right here now right now is all we have.

Buddha told a parable in sutra:

A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled, the tiger after him. Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge. The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him. Only the vine sustained him.

Two mice, one white and one black, little by little started to gnaw away the vine. The man saw a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. How sweet it tasted!

 ... give `em some creds ... at least he missed the point without having to call in his alter-login, err ego, the flak guy .. besides we all be suspected terrorists .. we can be kidnapped and detained without habeas corpus or access to council by our own military employees, our property, the assets and office complexes we purchase and maintain for our employees to work in have just been declared private property and we now will be arrested for trespassing if we enter our own "houses of government". An effeminate lame ass wanna be basket ball player can have a hit put on anyone of us with a word - and we'd be paying for it!

So one POV may be that an extremist is kind of a pansy ass label when we're already considered terrorists by our own employees and can be put to death on a whim .. wouldn't you say?

Sorry to rain on your parade, but contacting your 'representative' or senator will do exactly two things: Jack and Shit. You, me, Trav, and the combined total of posters on ZH from inception to present don't have the funds to buy even one of those fuckwads to vote in our favor on even a single issue, let alone get the impeachment ball rolling. Impeachment would be a farce, anyway, and very similar to changing one's underwear: looks different on the outside, but the same dick is still in charge.

No I think impeachment at this juncture (really 6 months ago) is critical but it won't happen. There has to be some restraint applied to the Executive dictatorship apart from a newly elected empty suit. If a message isn't sent, the slope will just keep sliding.

Same with the judiciary, judges sorry I mean federal gods in dresses, desperately need to be impeached. See the 7th circuit on cell phone searches for starters.

I fully agree that these things won't happen but don't dismiss the signifance of such an unlikely event offhand.

Military Coup bitchez!

The military would have to be especially vigilant and skeptical that any coup leader that would emerge from such a proposition will not have the same personal integrity and allegiance to the American Constitution as demonstrated by Smedley Butler despite what is represented in public or private. 

The Globalists will not make the same mistake twice.  Expect that the first patriotic military leader to emerge in such a scenario to be very potentially part of the controlled dialectic.

I think the military is the only sound institution left in the United States. We you see Wesley Clark appaled at the announcement from the civilian command that wars will happen in multiple country, when you see that he is on the board of BullionVault.com, you know where they sit. I think that the military has the capacity to initially obey civilian command but if things go to far, the military will just decide to obey the constitution and refuse to imprison civilians and refuse to take orders from a corrupt group in Washington.

Your gun is like the knife the prisoner stole from the kitchen.

What are you going to do when dozens of guards show up at your cell door, shouting at you, then shooting at you?

Will you conform, or will you try to kill the first guard with the knife.

You think the other prisoners are going to help you immediately when your life is at stake? They are locked up in their own cells (a cell here is the symbol of your own enslavement to the system: paying bills, taxes, etc... prefering peace because you want your family to live and prosper and nobody should die, etc...)

But of course a prison riot is possible... AND MANY PEOPLE WILL DIE when it comes to a prison riot. And the end result will not necessarily be freedom for everybody. First it will be just chaos.

yeah, even the goddamned TURKISH military would have stood up against this shit long ago.

Did ANY soldiers refuse orders to go into Syria?  Naw, it was GET SUM time.  They did it with glee.  Nuremberg Defense if anyone ever calls them to account for it.

For ANY officer or enlisted person to exercise military force without an Act of Congress approving said act IN ADVANCE is a clear violation of their fundamental oath upon entry to the military.  Any such order should have been REFUSED at all levels of the chain of command.  It is somewhat less culpable for the enlisted corps vis a vis the officers, who are supposed to fucking KNOW BETTER.

Obama has lawyers apparently even more psychopathic than Busch did.  Where the fuck is the media? where are the 100s of 1000s who protested worldwide over the Busch wars?  They all thought Busch was Palpatine, and it was the guy we have now, the smooth talker with charisma.  We can only cringe about how much worse this will get during term 2 or in a subsequent administration.

Obama is like fuck you, *I* will decide whether to assassinate, detain, and arrest US Citizens and to go to war IRRESPECTIVE of what the Constitution says.

But...the dude is on the GOLF COURSE every fucking day.  So could he REALLY be pulling the strings on this?  Can it be ANY more obvious that the President is a figurehead?

I start with this:  Maintaining the Constitution is not Revolution.  No oaths have been compromised, and this can be accomplished by grass roots action (read Arab Spring...or general demonstrations).  The US media is compromised.  Reading the campaign contribution lists for the red or blue sux.  What is your contribution?  More propaganda?  More status quo?  Enlighten me please, as many of the readers of this blog despise you even when you are right.

So long as people continue to be pacified by iTortas and 1080p, a stand is not going to happen. All the while the subversives just keep on keeping on, further infecting and undermining what's left.

I don't think there is a way out prior to the ponzi Empire collapsing under its own weight. If the Feb budget defecit is any indication, perhaps another insane war will be the last straw. Where a federal implosion would seem hopeful, one look at the mutants in the state house, city council or country board would suggest otherwise.

Agreed.  My original question still stands.  How is it we re-establish the constitution given all that has taken place?  After the initial event, what then?  Do we think that TPTB have not allowed for such an event, or even planned for it?  How will we the people honor the constitution when our own communities are starving?  How do we as a people left to fend for ourselves salvage our humanity, our community, and our country? Other than MSM and .GOV what plans have been made?  Individuals have prepared, but a society is made of individuals.  A lot of bitching and a lot of building a bunker for the hitting the fan, but what then?  My dad used to hit me on the head for not thinking past my first chess move....

There needs to be an alternative, because you know that congress and the elites have a plan...it's even codified.

I'm sick of people in general, and particularly you Trav, who bitch about things and offer no alternative.

Where is YOUR alternative? I don't see it spelled out here either.  So you're doing the very same thing Trav is, bitching and offering no solutions.

this can be accomplished by grass roots action (read Arab Spring...or general demonstrations).

Oh, that's your solution?  Grass roots action?  Like OWS pathetic "peaceful protest" bullshit? 

The DOI spelled out what the solution is.  The rogue federal government must be dissolved and replaced by a new government.  Nothing short of that will work.

Those military "oathkeepers" job is clearly set before them:

1) Seize control of the federal government in D.C. 

2) Arrest and imprison the president, vice president, his entire cabinet, every member of congress, every member of the supreme court, and all federal judges.  That's the top people of all 3 branches of the rogue government.  They are held in military prison.  (Yes your "messiah" Ron Paul gets arrested and imprisoned too.) 

3) Fire everyone else in the federal government down to the janitors. Everyone getting a federal government paycheck is fired.

4) Seize the Fed.  Arrest and imprison Ben Bernanke and all 12 regional Fed governors.  Fire everyone else working for the Fed, all 12 regional Fed banks, and any Fed agency ...like the IRS.

5) Seize the national banking system and freeze all federal government bank accounts.  No more federal government checks are issued nor cashed.

6) Issue a military decree dissolving the federal government, the Fed, and the national banking system.  This decree instantly renders all federal laws null and void, terminates all federal government treaties, terminates all federal government contracts, and terminates any other obligation made by the federal government or Fed ...including Federal Reserve Notes and Treasuries, both are instantly worthless.

7) Release all federal prison inmates not convicted of a capital crime and shut down all federal prisons. Inmates convicted of a capital crime are transferred to state prison then afterward given a de-novo trial in state court.

8) Bring all US military back to American soil and shut down all foreign military bases.  Military personnel needed to carry on essential functions of the former federal government (which aren't many, mostly defense of American soil) shall be deployed to those functions.  The rest are discharged.

9) Issue a military decree restoring the original Constitution For the United States of America with the first 10 amendments (Bill of Rights) as the supreme law of the land.  (Subsequent amendments are declared null and void.)

10)  In accordance with said Constitution, gold and silver are the only legal money in America.  And no, it doesn't have to be coins issued by the federal government.  It can be any generally recognized gold or silver coin issued by any government, along with any other legit gold and silver coin, bar, round, etc issued by anyone, along with any loose gold or silver in any form as long as both parties to the transaction are agreeable with it.  It can also be fully redeemable gold or silver certificates (claim checks) issued by anyone anywhere where both parties to the transaction are agreeable with it.

11) Command state legislatures to follow the Constitutional outline and elect a new president, new members of congress, and start a new federal government in D.C.

12) There will be no civilian federal judiciary.  The judicial branch function will be carried out by military courts and all trials will be military court-marshals under military rules of justice.

13)  The military as the new federal judiciary will be watchdog over the new federal government.  If the new president or any member of congress violates any provision of the Constitution or enacts any law or order exceeding their Constitutional authority, said law or order is declared null and void by a military judge, they are indicted by a military grand jury, arrested by military police, imprisoned in a military prison, and have a military court-marshal.  If they are convicted of treason against the Constitution they are sentenced to death and hung (or shot) at dawn the next day.

14) The deposed president, vice president, cabinet, congress, supreme court, federal judges, Fed chairman, and Fed governors are given military court-marshals and dealt with as stated in step 13.

15) Issue a military decree restoring full state legislature authority over their respective states subject only to the provisions of the original Constitution For the United States of America as they apply to the states.  The new federal government shall have no involvement in the states except as authorized by said Constitution.  Said involvement shall be solely with state government.  There shall be no involvement with the people of the states at all. Any constitutional judicial matter involving a person of a state shall be adjudicated in a state court with right of appeal to a federal military court.  If said federal military court finds the state judge in violation of the Constitution for the United States of America, said state judge shall be indicted, arrested, imprisoned, and tried in a federal military court-marshal.

The underlying message running through these 15 steps is the civilian federal government no longer understands the Constitution nor even cares about it, therefore the civilian federal government no longer has any right to exist, therefore it is seized and dissolved by the military (the only force capable of doing so), the original Constitution is restored by military decree, and a new federal government is established under the watchful eye of military courts who know the Constitution far better and are free from civilian political pressure.

Many Americans would be horrified at the thought of a military coup in America.

But they have no alternative plan to re-take control of the rogue federal government in DC. The military is the only practical way.

So there it is "oathkeepers".  Your job laid out before you in 15 simple steps.

I especially like the line, "It is not important to be accepted by the mainstream, it is only important to remain objectively correct in one’s position."

It's interesting.  The longer you reject the typical social attitudes, and demand intellectual integrity from yourself, the stronger you become.  It has the effect of bolstering confidence. Too often, the feeling of being correct suffices for actually being correct.

To read a lot of what is written here, you would think that the government was concerned more with its own continuity and the status quo than in protecting and defending life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and the Constitution of the United States of America.

I forget the name of the fellow, who was an 1800's libertarian, who stated something like:

"maintenance of the constitution is not revolution"

I believe that the government needs maintenance.

"Is a certain philosophical or political position suddenly considered “common knowledge”?  Be suspicious.  Is a particular methodology or debate point appearing in every journalistic outlet at the same exact time with the same exact one sided narrative?  Time to pull out the B.S. detector.  Is a politician opening his mouth and talking?  Have a shovel handy…"
