The Ruling Class v. Liberty: What it means & What to do about it

This is an excellent column; long but worth the read.

To (grossly; IMO) summarize: Entropy is affecting and will continue to affect the Country Class, while the Ruling Class will continue to centralize order at the expense of our Liberty.

The dichotomy of the Country Class (my summary, not that of the columnist) seems to be that “leave me alone” is not an organizing principle, but if we don’t organize, we’ll never be left alone. In fact, we’ll continue to be subject to more and more progressive “order” and concomitant lack of liberty – until we have none.

In all honesty I see no solution other than revolt – and not at the ballot box – against the Ruling Class. The POSSIBILITY exists that a Trump (foreseen but not explicitly in the (2010) column) could launch a 3P ala Perot, but one doubts his willingness to stray that far from orthodoxy given his actions thus far. He doesn’t seem to grasp how deep the swamp really is….  If he could and would spend the required amount on organization, one assumes his ability to replicate Perot’s success – but at the Congressional level in the 2018 midterms (and time is short). This arguably is the only way to BEGIN to return to the Rule of Law and Constitutional governance.

… Or … we in the Red States and Counties that are the Country Class just declare independence and fight our way to liberty.

Post-Enlightenment and post-1776 – an eye-blink ago – individual liberty and self-government raised their heads, through force,  for the first time in human history. They have been bowing ever-lower since 1932 (1861?) – globally. Given the corruption of welfare (nothing but vote-buying) and of Big Business, I am not at all sure how liberty can be regained absent gunfire.

Which, of course, is the reason that those who gave us liberty also gave us guns.

Sooner or later, it seems, we only will get liberty by fighting for it. Is it too late to reclaim our birthright? Is it too soon to start fighting for it?

As Adelaide said to Nathan Detroit: “it’s already too late to be ‘sooner’, and if it gets much later, soon it’ll be too late to even be ‘later’.”

Timing Is Everything

If you start shooting the bad guys early enough to make a difference, you’ll be labeled a radical crazy person. If you wait until it’s acceptable, you’ll be 80 pounds underweight, unarmed, and being loaded into a boxcar.

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.
