Escalation to Confiscation, and Beyond
Some thoughts from earlier today, originally posted at The Silicon Graybeard:
YOU ARE BEING PROBED

A while back, years prior to our current troubles, I had a discussion on this topic with someone in law enforcement: “880K in LE, 80 to 90 million gun owners. Do the math. Do you think all of those 80 million plus will sit meekly at home waiting for you to knock on their doors? Every one of your neighbors know in which house a government agent lives; John and Mary from across the street won’t burn your house down at 3AM with you and your family in it, but I guarantee a number of their co-workers and friends know they live across the street from you. Today you’re a cop they call on for help; tomorrow you’ll be a government agent that has to be eliminated to protect themselves.”
If something like this ever starts there’s no reason for it to end before it’s completely over; cops, government bureaucrats, TSA agents, all will be on the list. You know that sweet little old lady who works part-time 3 days a week in the county tax office? Somewhere, there’s an angry taxpayer who had to pay $150 more in taxes that he didn’t think he owed, and that $150 was the difference between new clothes for the kids and eating spaghetti for a month.
If you think you know ugly, you haven’t seen ugly yet. And I hope we never do. No sane person would ever consider doing something that could possibly lead to such events. What we’re seeing now is a mixture of trial balloons to see what response such statements produce, and preparing the battlespace for whatever action they think they can get away with.
The anonymous gentleman above speaks to two key points which I would like to amplify:
1. “If you think you know ugly, you haven’t seen ugly yet. And I hope we never do. No sane person would ever consider doing something that could possibly lead to such events.”
– I agree, and there lies my concern – there are many ‘true believers’ in the lefty crowd who have no clue what *ugly* actually is. Many of these fools honestly believe that Aurora and Sandy Hook have been personal attacks upon them and their families. Really. For many, the outrage is 100% real, and nearly off the scale in their minds – they may be deluded to consider these events as personal attacks, but they do. So my concern is your “no sane person” clause, and how much sanity we should actually expect from them if this fire gets stoked much hotter in their minds? Now, if you were one of them, and really believed that it was “already a war, so we just have to win it” then you would also believe that “things couldn’t get much worse than the war we’re already in”, right? <— THIS RIGHT HERE is the sound of the warning siren in my mind – if they’re cracked enough to really believe that it can’t get much worse, then this is the very reason why they would push things to the absolute ugliest they can get. By the time they see that they were wrong about what ugly *really* looks like, there will be plenty of spilled blood and it will be too late for them to undo it.
2. “If something like this ever starts there’s no reason for it to end before it’s completely over; cops, government bureaucrats, TSA agents, all will be on the list.”
– Again, I absolutely agree: the bureaucracy will get cleaned out; and a lot of other scurvy turds and pompous A-holes will get taken down, as well. Some cheer at that thought, but this is a two-edged sword. Killing starts out as a needful thing, but can easily become a habit, and that is dangerous. The first few kills are the most difficult, the most tenuous. Subsequent kills, you will focus upon confidence and follow through, and then upon technique and speed. By the time you’ve killed 25 or 30 men at close quarters, you have reduced the challenge to the purely mechanical aspects, and the work is no longer “gruesome”, its “invigorating”.
When killing becomes easy, any vendetta rises to a Capital offense, unless the man-become-killing-machine has outstanding discipline; so it won’t just be the TSA dick and the tax collector who get reduced when TSHTF, it may also end up being *that guy on Craig’s list who sold me that piece of crap 6 months ago*. Seriously; just look at the facts.
Men habituated to violence tend to seek and maintain a higher level of violence in their lives, even when it’s not necessary for survival. Examples? When the skinnies in Mogadishu weren’t fighting us, they would seek out and fight each other, as feuding clans did in the Scottish highlands in centuries past. Gangs in the US frequently skirmish for no better reason that to maintain their edge and initiate their new members.
As with all ‘clan’ warfare, it is part vendetta, part sport; part survival and part bragging rights. Once this ‘clan violence’ mentality has momentum, it is very difficult to bring to a halt, and this is part of the danger for us. Men who do not have the discipline of soldiers will become confident in killing, and this is a dangerous pivot point for the future of Liberty, because decades or centuries of clan/regional vendetta warfare doesn’t provide any more freedom than it does stability. God save us from what we may have to do amongst our own to bring the violence to a halt when the *Legitimate Conflict* is over, lest it devolve into such habituated violence and become a generational curse upon our nation.
Read the part above in RED several times, and get it clear in your mind – This is the pure essence, the core of the Culture of Death which they have been forming and cultivating for decades.
THIS IS THE ANVIL against which the progressive elites intend to pin us, while they beat us into submission. They will cause this type of violence in the streets EXACTLY because it will cause so many people to DEMAND A TOP DOWN ASSAULT ON OUR LIBERTY. It’s not about your guns, IT’S ABOUT YOUR SUBMISSION. If you have ever wondered why gang violence and ‘gang wars’ seem to be increasing inordinately, here is your reason – it is being encouraged by the would-be oligarchs as a tool of terror to obtain our submission.
I’m certain that these progressive elitists find it amusing that their white, middle class suburban True Believers/Useful Idiots [who actually believe that disarmament, peace, and a unified world government are sweet, good, worthy things] are totally unprepared and will be utterly wiped out in the coming social conflagration. IT’S ALL PART OF THE PLAN – these True Believers won’t be needed any more, and would be more trouble to the new oligarchs than they are worth.
True Believers: do you get it now? You are their most useful tool at the moment, but you are still as disposable to them as anyone else is, and even more so, once your task is complete.
