Resist or Submit, by Robert Gore STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

The government officials pushing to eliminate or defund police are slitting their own throats. The praetorians of any government—the police and military—are always just as corrupt as the government of which they are a part. However, the de facto first duty of the praetorians is to protect the government itself, and that becomes more paramount as the government becomes more corrupt. Appeasing violence by renouncing one’s defenses against it guarantees more violence and the eventual elimination of the renouncers, i.e. useful idiots.

    The corrupt, the perverted, always seem to take part in their own demise, don't they. Eventually the mob will turn on them too...that is, if We don't take them both out some way.

    I'm thinking of Sleeping Gas, go in, load em up and dump em a deep hole somewhere.

    You hit the "Head on the Nail" again, Robert.

      My thoughts exactly. It reminds me of the scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, when the government worker says "What we need is something that will affect every living soul within miles of here," to put animals and people to sleep temporarily. Oh, wait, that was a government hoax also.

    For three months most people trusted government, local, state, and national to have what was best in mind for them. The riots have awakened (not woke) them to the harsh reality of where the elected officials' (predominantly Democrat) hearts lie. Insurgents have taken over the streets declaring them their turf while the elected leaders seemed to encourage their behavior, belittling the police who are there to protect the rights of all while trying to pawn this all off on the President who empowered those officials to act in the best interest of the people. He made a mistake in trusting them because they used this authority to undermine all that he had done up to that point. When local elected officials promote the disbanding and/or curbing the police in some way there is an unseen agenda at work that is sinister and hypocritical for other forces are at work whose interest does not lie in the safety or the welfare of the population.

    Another excellent essay Robert. I do agree that the Covid 19 crisis has been over blown, as a result the Democrat Communists have gained significant political power through local leaders acting like mini-me Stalins. Then the rioters & looting anarchists were loosed upon some of Democrat cities. The unprecedented destruction statues, memorials and graves by the Neo-Bolsheviks (rioters,BLM, & Antifa) in attempts to destroy and rewrite history. I should have have included the 1619 Project under the classification of Neo-Bolsheviks.
    As you stated many have gone "Roof-top Korean" I include myself and a number of people I know are doing the same. If this continues through to November many people will choose not to vote. They may see that it could be dangerous going to the polls. Unless the polling station put up scanners many law abiding gun owners will conceal carry when going to vote.

    I liked the line "debasement becomes debauchery followed by downfall." Well said.

    "The animating spirit of this proposal is allowing people to go their own way and find their own place, in short, to live and let live."

    Regarding splitting the country into individual regions, the proposed solution does nothing to get at the root of the problem: people who have so insulated themselves in the big cities that they lose sense of the bigger picture. You're not going to get migration and regionalization by ideology without doing something about the big cities. The reality is that in a republic, those big cities control policy by virtue of the size of the voting base and the voting base itself is deluded and disconnected with reality.

    Take Portland, for instance. The Portland area controls nearly 75% of Oregon's entire population in about 2% of the land area. The vast farmlands of Eastern Oregon are staunchly Red - they have even talked about trying to remove themselves from the progressive "Left Coast" and glom onto their neighboring - and far more conservative - Idaho.

    I agree that the enforcement aspect of a government is in large measure a reflection of the ideology of the government itself and that we are seeing the disintegration of government in these suicidal cities such as Minneapolis which are justifying vigilanteism writ large. What to do about it? That is the question. Ultimately, we may be seeing the disintegration of society itself into gang-centered or nationality-centered enclaves circa "Escape from LA" or Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Time will tell.

      Indeed. The Weimar Republic comes to mind. Both the Socialist/Fascists and the Socialist/Communists had to destroy the public's trust in the Republic's authority before replacing it with their own version. We all know how that turned out.

      IMHO, the American Republic isn't witnessing mainly two socialist groups warring in the streets for supremacy, like Weimar did, but there is a single entity combining the two and is at war with what's left of the Republic. Of course the American Republic isn't as weak as Weimar was, but it is being slowly bled into weakness.

        they have the schools and universities and have indoctrinated those students...they have the banking system and the media...it is a slippery slope...Trump got conned into the mitigation shutdown rather than herd immunity...a perfect storm...

          My own daughters 6th grade classroom walls had Communist Propaganda on them where white people were the "oppressors" and everyone else was the "oppressed". And as everyone could guess, the teacher was a 20 something liberal white woman. When I pointed it out to my ex-wife, she told me she learned all about this topic in her Masters Degree in California and saw nothing wrong with it.

    "The point of coronavirus totalitarianism and orchestrated riots is surrender, humiliation, and submission, not for the sake of health or justice, but for the sake of surrender, humiliation, and submission."

    A couple years ago a good friend of mine and colleague (an architect I work with) and I read 1984 simultaneously. We'd trade notes each morning at our desks. Several things in that story really grabbed these two liberty lovers. But, the one about when Winston asks O'Brian what the purpose of the torture is something we still mention to each other on a regular basis to try to understand what we're seeing in America today. "The object of torture is torture." In essence, the purpose of torture is torture. That is a pretty eye-opening statement....because it seems so applicable today.
