How To Defeat Tyranny

It is inevitable.  There comes a point in the development of every crisis, every catastrophe, every impending disaster, every act of methodical dictatorship, in which the generations selected by fate or destiny to endure the trial must attempt to look beyond the intellectual and the psychological, to deeply consider the greater philosophical or spiritual questions of their epoch.  Certain moments in history demand that truly free individuals relinquish their cynicism, and embrace that inherent world of form and conscience that exists in each of us but remains largely unexplained.  Without this act of “faith”, or intuitive knowing, good cannot exist, inspire, or prevail.

To understand what we face in our age of encroaching technocracy draped like glistening silicon across the face of a third world American cesspool, we must accept certain realities; the first and foremost being the existence of “evil”.  Not the evil of ignorance, that is easy to recognize.  Not the evil of apathy and moral relativism, though the stench of both sharply permeates the sour underside of our culture.  No, I am talking about pure, unbiased, unflinching, perfectly conscious and fully absorbed evil.  The kind that they tell stories about.  The kind that history books speak of almost in awe, as if it is miraculous in nature.  A dark tide.  A prehistoric leviathan.  An unbelievable and seemingly inhuman myth made manifest by astonishingly vile despots.

This evil is so overwhelming that many people today scarcely imagine it possible.  It is our society’s greatest weakness; the denial of ultimate malice.

Our current governmental system has adopted a policy of open theater, in which the two sides of the false paradigm now barely hide their farcical opposition to each other.  Their rhetoric no longer obscures their acts of political collusion in the destruction of our founding principles and Constitutional protections.  In the past several years they have acted in the best interests of corporate minorities and moneyed elites without hiding their intentions towards globalism and the destruction of sovereignty, fearlessly spitting on the redresses of the public.  All of this while they arm themselves to the teeth with billion-plus round stockpiles of ammunition and Orwellian surveillance technologies.   Yet, foolish subsections of our populace still argue that the government is a “product of elections”, and is “made up of Americans for Americans”.  Even if we do not see them as an enemy, they certainly see us as such.

Our financial system is a stampeding procession of nightmare fueled blood-drenched circus freaks dancing in an ether driven haze of pungent absurdity.  It is as if our economy has become a morbid parody of itself, like a queasy piece of horror/comedy cinema.  We are so far along in the collapse of our markets that the banksters no longer see the need to hide the fraud.  With the advent of the Libor Scandal, governments, central banks, corporate financiers, all flaunt their criminality with pride.  Yet, some Americans still clasp their naïve hopes to a chance of fiscal recovery.

To fight against an evil of this magnitude takes more than anger, or physical preparation, or organization.  It takes personal exploration, a steeling of one’s heart, and a conquering of one's shortcomings.    

Tyranny, true tyranny, thrives on our selective awareness, and our ability to bend our minds and our vision to avoid seeing that which is really there.  In the end, victory over tyranny is less about guns, bombs, mass dissent, and civil fury; it instead requires an acceptance of the dark side of the world, and the unwavering will of honorable men ready to face it.  That is to say, the defeat of tyranny begins and ends in the mind.

In America today, many minds are not ready to handle the trials ahead.  Maybe it’s the ease of several generations of uninterrupted prosperity.  Maybe it’s the Babyboomers.  Maybe it’s Generation X.  Maybe it’s the public education system.  Maybe it’s the water.  Maybe it’s all of the above and more.  At this point, we have little time to debate symptomatic culprits.  It is time to go to the root of the problem, and cut it out.

What we need is a foundation, a set of “personal rules for combat” when engaging a tyrannical establishment.  This “code” should above all else provide a way of mentally and spiritually confronting one’s own weaknesses and presumptions.  Dictators and oligarchs are not our primary concern.  Our inner state is.

Rule #1:  Stop Waiting For Others To Fight The Battle For You

If you want to put an end to totalitarianism, you can’t sit around waiting for other people to solve the problem for you.  The greatest downfall of any political campaign (even when led by a liberty minded candidate) is the centralization of popular focus on a single man.  There is no knight in shining armor coming to lead the Liberty Movement to the promised land.  These unrealistic expectations will only end in disappointment and nihilism.  The solution starts not with others, but with YOU.  Where do you contribute to freedom?  What actions have you taken?  Who have you inspired?  What ideas have you offered?  What project have you organized, struggled for, sweat for? Take the reigns of your own destiny and finally join the fight instead of perusing the internet longing for a guru to hand you a mission.

Rule #2:  Believe In Something Greater Than Yourself - Abandon Childish Cynicism

This is where we get all “spiritualized”, which for the typical cynic is a rather gooey and uncomfortable affair.  If accepting a higher purpose to the universe and your own existence is too much for you, then at least consider deeply the future of humanity in general.  Think not of what mankind is today, but what mankind could be tomorrow if you make it so.  Know that there is an indelible good within us, though it may be difficult to see at times.  Cradle that spark, and champion its return.  It is not enough to oppose tyranny.  One must know exactly what he is fighting for in order to triumph.

Cynics do not make history, or change a country for the better.  They are the forgotten dust wafting about in the wayward attics of time.

Rule #3:  Deal With Your Fear, Or It Will Be Used Against You

A subjugating government’s size, military might, technological superiority, and overall gravitas are irrelevant.  The fight will come whether we want it or not.  Accept the fact that the fight is coming to YOU; your fear of it does not change the eventuality of it.  Wars, especially those waged for freedom, are won by the will, not by arms or technology.  Not by laser guided missiles and predator drones.  Tyrants always have the advantage.  They always have the upper hand.  They win when they are able to convince the masses that this advantage makes them invincible and that resistance is a futile exercise.  They lose when the people could care less about the size of the guns pointed at them.

All men are afraid to take risks, especially mortal risks.  However, great men understand the necessity of risk in the pursuit of that which is right.  Fear should play no part in your life, ever.

Rule #4:  Understand The Nature Of Tyrants

Overcoming fear is one thing.  Being overconfident is another.  Understand that the evil you face is capable of absolutely any depravity in its lust for absolute control.  Understand that the crimes you will one day witness in your battle to dethrone the autocrats are designed to rattle your will and eradicate your resolve.  Know that to attain a free country you must struggle through social, economic, and physical carnage you never thought possible before.  Be ready, psychologically and emotionally, for anything…

Rule #5:  Dump Nihilists And Obstructionists By The Wayside

You can’t save everybody, and you certainly can’t impart a sense of greater purpose on cowards, weaklings, and nihilists.  These people are inherently self centered, and seek only to prolong the ease and length of their own existences regardless of the cost to others.  Nihilists in particular are so inwardly and subconsciously ashamed of their own weaknesses that they go out of their way, often obsessively, to project those weaknesses on the whole of.  The have to believe that if they are not capable of fighting back, no one else can be either, and they will shriek to the rafters about the impending doom of us all.

Nihilists and Obstructionists are dead weight on any dissenting activist movement, even though they pretend to support the cause, and should be tossed to the curb immediately.  A revolution for liberty requires foresight, and courage.  If a person does not meet both these criteria, they will eventually bring you down with them.

Rule #6:  Find A Love For Humanity Once Again

I know as well as anyone how hard it is today to care about most people given the amount of utter stupidity so many display on a daily basis and the costs this behavior has accrued in our society over time.  Get over it.  Recognize that when you fight for freedom, you fight for EVERBODY, even people who have not earned your efforts.  If you fight only for yourself, or your immediate circle, you will lose.  Look at the bigger picture, and know the real breadth and consequence of this undertaking.  Fight for all, or you might as well crawl into a shallow hole and pull the dirt over your head now.

Rule #7:  Remain Adaptable To The Circumstances Of The Environment

Absorb what works, and cast off what doesn’t.  Be stubborn in your principles and your resolve, but not in your strategies.  Vulnerability comes with predictability.  Blaze trails the tyrants don’t expect.  Show them something they’ve never seen before.  Be bold, or go home.

Rule #8:  Retain Your Principles Or You Will Fail

The philosophical doctrine being peddled by elites in our military today states that “in order to defeat a monster you must be willing to act like a monster”.  This is insanity.  Forgoing one’s principles and adopting dishonorable and vicious methods is not the way of a warrior; it is the way of the tyrant.  Remember what you are fighting for.  This is not just about our personal survival, but the survival of a worthy ideal.  Abandoning that ideal may give us the illusion of short term success, but in the long run, the cost will bankrupt our movement, demolish our moral high ground, and make hollow any victories we do achieve.

The Real Fight Is Within

Some may have stumbled upon this essay with the expectation that it would outline a kind of step-by-step instructional guide to crippling the globalists.  Sorry to dissatisfy if that was the case, but it is better that we all comprehend now that there will never be such guide.  As much as globalists and collectivists with aspirations of world dominance and total financial centralization are a threat to our way of life, the real fight, the fight that matters most, is not without, but within.  We will overcome them only when we overcome our own failings.

I imagine many wish, as I surely wish, that simple days and comfortable times could continue on forever.  The difficult truth is that history tests man, and sets the extraordinary apart from the mundane.  Sometimes these tests are so epic in their scale that one wonders if anyone will step forward to weather the storm.  Someone always does, and we owe those brave souls a debt of gratitude which can only be paid with our own stand in our own era.  At the end of all things, we will either open the door to a better world, or we will cut our own throats.  Tyranny is nothing but an opportunity for the best in all of us to rise.

Luciferian Illuminati specifically.   And especially the ruling families/counsel of the Illuminati Olligarchy.   Jewish people are not responsible for this.  I don't like using the word Zionist because people confuse that with Judiasm and tends to misplace the blame.

I honestly never understood why so many people, Christians mainly, got confused with the difference between the difference sects of Judaism. Everything that shows the difference between the Zionists and the Traditionalist Jews is written in that book they claim to have read. Zionism is probably the oldest political movement on the planet. It's the origin of the Islamic Caliphate idea ffs.

Maybe I didn't say it the greatest way.  But when things finally break down and people would want justice, how would you describe our Oligarchs?  I mean is better to just say George Soros, or Kissenger, or Hank Paulson, or the Bushes, or some of the public architechs of this mess.   I mean there are Oligarchs, and  I think the first step is get everone to realize that is a clear indentifying term.   Zionist is not that term, and I think intentionally confusing.    I mean even if you say the 1%, it's still not clear where the pitchfork weilding mob should go.

Clearly Identifying WHO is esential for real change I believe.

SMG, good post. I see nothing wrong with the term Zionism, but Luciferian is more accurate in describing the goals and rituals of the folks in power, and that specific term helps us all understand them much better. Not enough folks on this site demonstrate awareness of the accuracy of your terminology. They need to do more research on the elite, their institutions, and their behavior.

Most Christians are OK even though their holy book is a violent piece of literature, same goes for most Jews and most Muslims. There are people who need religion in their lives and that's fine with me, as long as their religion has no influence on my life.

It's the extremists who fuck it up for the rest, and Zionists are extremists.

Please indicate where the New Testament, upon which Christianity is based, condones or urges violence. Don't point to Revelation, because that isn't doctrinal. And don't point to the historical books of the Old Testament, because most of it - Kings, Chronicles, etc. - merely documents history. That would be like stating that Shirer's book "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" is a violent piece of literature.

For extra credit, provide the Greek or Aramaic textual basis lest some poor translation give you a mistaken impression.

Jews have been, historically, big supporters of liberalism, mass immigration, diversity/multiculturalism, big government and state socialism/communism. They have always been big in the money-changing biz and the entertainment and publishing biz and control most of all of those big enterprises in America today. Look at the big banksters now and in our recent past, they are overwhelimingly Jewish. All the big names in feminism, save Jane Fonda, were Jewish. The Fed was set up by Jews and has always been run mostly by Jews; same in London.

To identify as a Jew is to identify as a pirate.

But the war is much bigger than that now, for all our leaders have become corrupt and our entire society bases all its decisions on money, materialism, and personal happiness.

It's not Jews, Americans, Saudi, Afghan, North Koreans, or Muslims. It's about a few people that take all the wealth on the back of others labor.

 

Google JATO (Jews against the occupation)

 

We have to stop fawning over the Bill Gates, Royalty e.g. queen of England, Steve Jobs, George Soros, Paris Hiltons, Jim Rogers, and other millionaires and build a fairer world.

 

The welfare state is nothing but a cover for the current system (due to structural ineffeciency pushing wealth UP to the top) unable to distribute the fruits of peoples labor so the powers in charge throw a few crumbs to keep the people from rioting. Take away the ability to have food and you can forget all the wishy washy step 1-6 above. People WILL be in the street.

Used to be that people went to the doctor when they were actually sick. Now they go for every sniffle, cough, bruised toe and the ever present, regularly scheduled check-up. Here is a newsflash for those paying 7k-10k or more a year for health insurance: You are going to die. We all do. 

Over the past five years, I've paid out approximately 45k for health insurance. I've been to the doctor during that time frame...exactly once AND I had to pay the $120 out of pocket because my deductible wasn't met. Obama and his care can kiss my behind, but hey...if you want to enrich the insurance companies...be my guest.

You are smart to save it.  MD's will gladly take cash.  You can also get same or even better discounts than the insurrers.  

The whole health insurance business is just fucking digital paperpushing for nothing of value in return.   It's a fucking scam, now constitutionalized by Obamacare.

Rarely so now days. Doc's and Dentist's practices are ruled by the insurance companies. I went to see a Ortho doc last year, needed an MRI, they have one in house, only allowed (the mri unit) because they're in a "under served" area. I used to be able to get discounts or copays written off. Now that's Insurance Fraud. True if you have no insurance they're free to negotiate the price, for now anyway.

Sorry for the lengthy post, copied intact, but I feel this has direct bearing on this discussion.

The Virtues of a Disorganized Resistance

Stephen DeVoy

Break Your Chains

American opposition movements have always focused on the notion of organization. It has always been their goal to organize the people. Their hope has been to wield the collective power of the disaffected, downtrodden, and exploited as a single unit against the concentrated power of the ruling class. While their hope has been noble, their methods have been foolish. Organized resistance has many drawbacks. These drawbacks have seldom been discussed by the opposition. We believe that the only effective resistance is a completely disorganized, decentralized, and leaderless opposition.

While, on the face of it, this claim may impress you as absurd. Of course it seems absurd! It is counterintuitive. Never the less, it is the ONLY method of resistance that will work within American society. We will explain why organized resistance has never worked in the United States. In addition, we will promulgate a new formula for effective resistance.

Why has organized resistance failed in the United States?

There are many reasons for the failure of organized resistance. The two primary causes of failure are intimately connected to the culture of the United States and the political system laid down by our nation's founding fathers.

The Cultural Cause

Americans, culturally, are anarchists. Few Americans realize this. Most Americans have a false understanding of the term "anarchism." However, upon examining the beliefs of your average American, you will find that most Americans: do not trust leaders, do not trust government, wish to be left alone, value their privacy, think of themselves as independent from society, do not believe that there is a systemic solution to their problems, believe that others should be free to do what they choose, provided they do so in private and do not harm others

While it is undeniable that political culture in the United States often speaks to the opposite of the above list, it is also undeniable that most Americans register as neither Democrat or Republican and most Americans do not vote. Thus, despite the political culture, most Americans choose not to participate in it. This is not only due to their belief that the American political system is hopeless, but also is due to the cultural clash between the wider culture and the political culture.

Any attempt to organize large numbers of Americans into a single political movement will fail. Any attempt to create an organization led by a strong group of leaders will fail. Americans reject submersion into the collective. In a sense, Americans are anti-collectivists.

The Political Cause

American political culture is not ideological. Politicians attempt to draw ideological distinctions between the two major parties, but these distinctions are a matter of splitting hairs. The only significant difference between the two political parties is the degree of compassion represented by the rhetoric of the two parties. Compassion is not a political concept. Compassion is an attitude. Thus, the two parties differ, primarily, in attitude and not ideology.

Despite this, there remain two political parties. One is prompted to ask "why?" If each party is basically the same, with respect to ideology, why do they not merge into one party? The answer to this question is best found in viewing each political party according to its true nature. American political parties are, for all intents and purposes, organized crime units. American political parties have more in common with the Mafia than they have with their counterparts in more democratic societies. Like Mafia, each political party competes for control of territory in order to maximize the benefit to their business constituency. Like Mafia, the political parties attempt to mold the system to maintain their positions and access to resources. Like Mafia, the political parties force the average citizen to pay "protection" under the threat of violence (taxes). Like Mafia each political party uses the "protection" money collected for its own advantage.

By defining our political system in terms of the "majority" and the "opposition," our Constitution enshrines this two mafia system into law. Each Mafia passes laws to exclude new comers from the game while focusing the rest of its energy in destroying the other Mafia.

Thus, any resistance movement that chooses to become an organization is in competition with these Mafiosi. The deck is stacked and the power of the state, wielded by these organized crime units known as the Democratic and Republican parties, will waste the time and resources of any newcomer. A newcomer can only succeed by rejecting the political system, draining its resources, and undermining the rule of the state.

How is disorganized resistance superior?

In some societies, dissidents become heroes. In American society dissidents are systematically slandered, libeled, harassed, and villainized. If they become successful, they are murdered (e.g. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X). In the American experience, movements that look to leaders are decapitated. Leaders are a liability, not an asset. Organizations can be (and are) infiltrated. Organizations can be taxed. Organizations have legal responsibility. Organizations have membership lists and lists are wonderful tools for the oppressor. Organizations take on a life of their own. They struggle to exist and their continued existence takes priority over their mission. Organizations attract opportunists, power mongers, and attention seekers. Organizations tend to exploit their rank and file for the benefit of their inner circle. Disorganizations share none of these defects.

Bureaucracy cannot comprehend disorganization. Disorganization is invisible. The asymmetry of the relationship between organization and disorganization favors disorganization. Organization depends upon planning. Planning requires predictability. Disorganization cannot be predicted. This leaves organization at a disadvantage.

Organization requires a supply chain. Supply chains can be disrupted. Disorganization depends only upon the resources of its members. Supply chains that do not exist cannot be eliminated.

Disorganized movements rely upon swarming. Swarms are difficult to defend against. If you cut a swarm in half, you have two swarms. If you eliminate one of the resulting swarms, you still have a swarm. Disorganization breeds. Organization grows. The many and dispersed are a more difficult target than the large and concentrated.

Organizations takes their steps by design. If the design is flawed, the organization fails. Disorganization relies not upon design but upon evolution. The motivating notions of disorganization are memes. Memes evolve and memes compete. This process improves the motivating notions of disorganization. This process produces multiple courses of action. While some may fail, others are likely to succeed. Taken as a whole, disorganization is more likely to succeed.

The important thing to remember is that it is easier to destroy than to create that which is designed. Thus, the cost to those who lose the manifestation of their design outweighs by leaps and bounds the cost it takes to destroy it. That which evolves is cheap and when an effort is created to destroy the evolved entity, it merely mutates and evolves again, adjusting to the new conditions. As a process that fosters evolution, a movement based on disorganization will continue to survive, evolve, and expand without cost. The resource constraints placed upon the designed (e.g. government and corporate) and those absent from the evolved (a decentralized and disorganized opposition movement), favor the later.

The limits of disorganization

We do not propose a complete absence of organization. Instead we propose a disorganization of units. Units can be as small as a single individual, or as complex as cell of individuals working together. Cells may be internally organized, but they should not be statically organized cell to cell. The movement should have no commander. It should have no central committee or governing body. No global plans should be made. The modus operandi of each unit should be to think globally and act locally. Ideas, strategies, and tactics should float freely and compete as memes within the medium of the collective conscious.

Conclusions

We need to construct a disorganized movement. You need not apply to join. In fact, it might be better if you did not contact anyone except those with whom you wish to form a unit. Your ideas, strategies, tactics, and lessons learned should be spread anonymously or by word of mouth. When you act, should you decide to act in resistance, attribute your actions to "the Resistance." The growing din of disorganized disruption will be felt as an earthquake. There will be trembles. There will be pre-shocks. The tension will mount and, in time, there will be an earthquake. When that earthquake strikes, the organized edifice of the oppressor will fall like a house of cards.

The problem is that cynics are negative.

I used to do long bike rides in the Santa Cruz mountains. I learned that when going fast downhill on a curvy road you need to look where you want to go. Don't look at the roadside cliff unless that's where you want to end up.

That doesn't mean denying that the cliff is there, but if you concentrate your attention on the cliff then you can't be a good rider.

"Rule #3:  Deal With Your Fear, Or It Will Be Used Against You

A subjugating government’s size, military might, technological superiority, and overall gravitas are irrelevant.  The fight will come whether we want it or not.  Accept the fact that the fight is coming to YOU; your fear of it does not change the eventuality of it.  Wars, especially those waged for freedom, are won by the will, not by arms or technology.  Not by laser guided missiles and predator drones.  Tyrants always have the advantage.  They always have the upper hand.  They win when they are able to convince the masses that this advantage makes them invincible and that resistance is a futile exercise.  They lose when the people could care less about the size of the guns pointed at them.

All men are afraid to take risks, especially mortal risks.  However, great men understand the necessity of risk in the pursuit of that which is right.  Fear should play no part in your life, ever."

 

Sounds good in theory & I would like to believe that people will rise up eventually but this writer makes a valid point many people will turn over their weapons.  There are those who already advocate taking away your weapons they are a huge problem.

The 'BAD GUYS' are transferring 500 million dollars of military equipement to the local police forces yearly.  A police force not near from my home now has a freakin tank!!! They have Night Vision, body armor, the latest automatic weapons, chemical weapons, and soon they will have drones for support.  Not to mention billions of dollars of intel gathering equipement (look up a 3 billion dollar computer in the deserts of Nevada).

The days of a well armed militia fighting and winning anything is over UNLESS they can win over the hearts and minds of the locals.  "Gun's and Bomb's" as you call it just ain't gonna do it.  The masses are asses, but they need to be energized behind you, or YOU LOSE.

You make a good point - but I do not believe the military or the police will slaughter civilians to enfore and prop up the tyrants. In any event - they can have all of the military hardware you speak of - but the most powerful weapon is a sniper who is not afraid to die. They are not going to carpet bomb a neighborhood, or detonate chemical weapons to take out a single sniper. Some of us have virtually all of the items you mentioned - night vision, body armor etc: - and spend a hell of a lot more time at the range than your local police department does. Trust me - I have seen them shoot - they ain't that good. Besides - if they are ordering hand gun ammo - they don't stand a chance - most can't hit the broad side of a barn from more than 30 feet or so. All I am saying is - I do not believe we can count on change to occur at the ballot box - too many people are happy to exist on what they are given so long as they don't have to do shit to earn it.

It's obvious to me that if we, the people, wanted to stop all the governments from killing all the people we could act in mass to do so. Instead, the governments dole out just enough to we, the people, to keep we, the people with a grin on our face, a bag of donuts and our thumb up our ass.

Work within the system.  No matter how flawed it may seem, Western Liberal Democracy is the best we got. Yes it takes time, a long time, but that is the best way to change.   It is most ironic that the young, who have more time than old, are least patient. 

Revolutions only hurt the weak, the basters always come out on top. Read history. Read it not as collection of events of the past, but as a user manual of who we really are. How with all the right intentions, desire for rapid change simply ceated monster after monster.  And those who fought for the change became it's victoms.

French Revolution? Who said we were violent and wanted a new Government to take power? You have mistaken us for some group of Socialists or Communists. 

We want the whole Centralized thing to be absolved by pointing out it flaws and tyrannical leanings. We intend to do this peacefully and without coercion.

As I said in the past posts, ignorance and dependency is the Achilles' heel of our system. You can't wipe them off overnight. It has to be a gradual process.

We can start by enforcing voter eligibility. And I know this may sound elitist, but somehow making sure that the voters actually understand what is on the ballot. For example; does it make sense for a person who does not know bond is to vote for a bond measure?

When only the informed are allowed to vote, poverty pimping politicians will not be re-elected.

In 'American' nations, elected personal is not elected by the poor (who largely do not vote) They are elected by the middle class.

Voting is a middle class thing.

Induction of consumption in poor class is done to favour middle class standard of life.

But hey, self indiction is a big thing in US citizenism.

Nobody has a right to vote because nobody has a right to form a government.

Government is the discretionary use of force by an exclusive group, against those who are productive.

Let's make voting contigent upon wealth:  1$ = 1 vote. Oh, wait - we already got that.

Revolutions happen occasionally, whether you like it or not. I'm sure you think the American Revoultion could have been handled more incrementally as well.

"American Revolution" is misnomer, we didn't go over to England and toppled the monarchy. The better name has always been the War of Independance.

Here are some other revolutions think about;

o Russian Revolution

o Cuban Revolution

o Iranian Revolution

o Mexican Revolution

o [Any African Nation] Revolt/Coup

It's nothing more than glorified system of mob rule in which the scummiest liars, thieves, and charlatans rise to the top.

#5 is the most important one IMO. Too many of us get caught up with trying to convince everyone that we are correct, but those that are in power would make use of that weakness. Paid Shills are their adaptation to that weakness.

_____________________________

The difference? In these countries, people coming up with this kind of drivel will be empowered by 'Americans' who will see in them an opportunity to overthrow a government that is potentially a rival to the US.

In 'American' countries, no foreign power will take the risk of empowering people who speak this way.

As such, there are just empty words, and no powerful person lose time to suppress non threats to one's power.

But hey, 'Americans' love to inflate their self importance. They love to think that they are important when they post comments on the Internet.

The funniest part, while they see an achievement in freedom in being allowed to write this kind of articles, they only signal how powerless they are to shackle their own chains.

A slaver does not lose time suppressing dreams of emancipation from slaves who can not break their chains.

US citizens are armed, US citizens have a legal right to citizen's arrest. They do nothing.

Why should a person in power bother? Let people speak, they are harmless even though they are fond of thinking of themselves as a threat to the power apparatus.

AnAnonymous, mentally deranged troll of Chinese citizenism, begs to be humiliated and shamed, once again:

The funniest part, while they see an achievement in freedom in being allowed to write this kind of articles, they only signal how powerless they are to shackle their own chains.

The funniest part, while AnAnonymous sees an achievement in repeatedly posting his drivel and bullshit, only broadcasts his mental imbalance for all to see, chaining his own shackle to his strawsman wok and calling it black.

US citizens are armed, US citizens have a legal right to citizen's arrest. They do nothing.

Sorry, ankle biter, I'm not going to let you live this one down. You tried this before, were humiliatingly discredited, and ran home to mommy with your tail between your legs:

US citizens love attrition.

Fact: US citizens residing in the US have lots of guns.

Fact: US citizens residing in the US have a right to citizen's arrest.

There is no try in this, those are just factual statements.

The copeout you offered was to run away in fantasy by asking what I should do.

And again, there is nothing in this question but fantasy.

The question grounded in reality is what 'Americans' are doing, taken into account they have a lot of guns and a legal right to citizen's arrest.

What next? What is the next fleeing move? Asking what aliens would do if they were 'Americans'?

Chinese Citizenism citizens love nutrition.

Fact: Chinese Citizenism citizens residing in China eat lots of dogs.

Fact: Chinese Citizenism citizens residing in China have a right to shit on the sides of the roads.

There is no lie in this, those are just factual statements.

The copeout you offered was to run away in fantasy by asking why they should not shit on the sides of the roads.

And again, there is nothing in this question but fantasy.

The question grounded in reality is why Chinese Citizenism citizens are not using toilets, taken into account they have a lot of dogs and a legal right to eat them.

What next? What is the next fleeing move? Asking what aliens would do if they were dog-eating, roadside-shitting Chinese Citizenism citizens?

AnAnonymous, caught in more lies, tries backpedaling again:

The copeout you offered was to run away in fantasy by asking what I should do.

Wrong. I asked, hypothetically, if you were a US citizen, what would you do, in order to carry out a citizens arrest.

You simply shit your pants, evaded the question, and ran home to mommy, leaving the brown trail of a pants-shitting coward on the road behind you.

And again, there is nothing in this question but fantasy.

And again, there is nothing in your evasion, backpedaling, and lies but pants-shitting cowardice. Go run home to your mommy and beg her to wipe your ass.

The question grounded in reality is what 'Americans' are doing, taken into account they have a lot of guns and a legal right to citizen's arrest.

More rodent-like scurrying, evasion, and cowardice. The comment thread is here for all to see:

You're the expert in pants-shitting cowardice and running away. Let's see what you do.

Asking what aliens would do if they were 'Americans'?

Nice evasion, nice strawsman, but that strawsman won't wash the brown stains of cowardice from the insides of your trousers.

And thus the famous bronze sculpture by Rodin of the Chinese Citizenism citizen, squatting in deep reflection, known as "The Stinker".
