Revolutions Without Bloodshed Part 1

Coup D'Etat Attempt Against America! - Go Beyondo

The State that finds its hegemony threatened almost always responds with violence. Violence, after all, is the State’s stock in trade. It’s the characteristic method of rulers to use force and violence to work their wills upon us. In the majority of cases, they could get their way in no other way.

     Americans are familiar with the concept of the consent of the governed. The phrase appears in the Declaration of Independence. The concept is (supposedly) reified by the election of our public officials, said officials then being said to “represent” us. But there are several fallacies built into that notion. The most blatant such fallacy lies in the official’s freedom to do as he pleases once he’s been installed in office. The “representation” appears to be confined to the electoral process itself…and given the scandalous state of our elections, none too strongly, at that.

     It has begun to seem “obvious” to me that we must withdraw our consent from American governments of all levels, both in appearance and in fact. The core problem, of course, is averting any negative consequences as far as possible. Few of us are actually eager to shed our blood for the cause of freedom. But there may be an alternative to violent revolution. If so, it would be founded on an attribute that individuals possess but governments usually lack: agility.

Agility, is a relative term when it comes to our current regime. They can limit or remove our ability, the longer this regime is allowed to govern our agility will become non-existent. The Paris climate accord has not fully kicked in as yet, they have already shut down our energy production.

WhenI was told by an ER doctor he was not allowed to give a treatment to treat a sickness known to kill millions of people,because the government won’t let him, my allegiance to the government went in the trash.

My allegiance to our gommermint went in the trash about Sept. 1970 when I returned from the university of Da Nang. And NO my trust has not been tempered through the years, my mistrust has only gotten more severe.
There is not enough money in the world to pay me to trust ANYTHING our (or other) gommermints tell the peope.

My trust in gov. goes further back, when Gen. MacArthur was fired in the ’50’s by Truman, then the failure of Viet Nam the V N. People never threatened us to fight them, we did it to boost the economy, took twenty yrs, we still lost, incl several classmates and friend killed. The fact that Dr’s can’t choose to treat patients freely is a good point, We no longer vote since elections are rigged.

We inserted ourselves into that conflict, the French had left what we had were advisers at first. Then the CIA found how lucrative the drug trade was in the golden triangle and wa la. Air America was there transport, they sacrificed 68,000 American lives to finance their black ops.

I really enjoyed reading this article and the Spooner essay. I appreciate and look forward each day to historical information that informs American citizens paths that can keep us free. My brother introduced me to this great American two years ago. Thank you NC Renegades for filling the empty spaces in my heart that were purposely destroyed by our government bureaucrats who work hard to destroy freedom. Please keep providing bios of true Americans. God bless! Here is a link to an essay on how Spooner stood up to the USPS monopoly! My brother introduced me to Spooner!
