Quote of the day—Alexander Hope

Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anyone has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn’t let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians.

  2. True. In the criminal mind, first comes the abiding desire to render you helpless. The necessary actions, and the excuses for them, will then follow as required.

    So it is that while we’ve seen the excuses shift and morph over time, the desire to disarm the population remains a constant.

    There are several other constants, all having the same, shifting and morphing nature to the excuses used to bolster them. They all come down to the hoarding of wealth, power, and perceived authority.

    Another slightly different one is “credit”, or exaltation, for the accomplishments of others. If you build a factory, for example, the local politicians will expect to be patted on the back, given credit, for having “improved the economy”, or having “created jobs”, etc., as though they had something to do with it beyond staying out of the way.

    The point is of course; we’re dealing with mentally disturbed, and very dangerous, people. It’s why I refer to the politicals as the Criminal Class. They share all the characteristics of the common street gang, in that their goals are to lord over you and take your stuff. In a way they’re much worse– They’re more inclined to believe that their power mongering and money grubbing activities are legitimate. And they tend to have bigger armies.

    The simple-minded, reading this, and those of the alliance of the criminal mind, will of course, right on cue, as predictably as the sunrise, assert that I’m being “anti-government”. In so doing they indict themselves, for they demonstrate their refuseal to acknowledge any difference whatsoever between government and corruption. I come out against corruption, they’ll come out against me as “anti-government”. It’s as though they’re asserting to the world that all government is, by nature, and should be, corrupt.

    Who, then, is being anti-government; those who protect, promote and provide cover for corruption, or those who wish to remove the corruption thus allowing for good government? If you want to keep contamination out of your food, does that make you an “anti-nutritionalist”?

    Understand how it works;
    Certainly, if you seek to rid your local school of the bad teachers or bad administrators and replace them with better teachers or better administrators, you’ll be accused of opposing education, probably out of hatred for children.

    It’s really very simple; there is a mindset that’s been offended and upset over the establishment of Western Civilization and wants it annihilated, so it can rule the world once again.
