ignoring evil


IGNORING EVIL

You know the saying, it goes something like ‘for evil to triumph good men must do nothing’.  I’m going to call bull-spit on it.  It’s been around forever, most likely predating crack cocaine by quite a bit, so I’m assuming whoever came up with it at the time was hitting the opium pipe something fierce.  This was brought to mind after a flurry of comments ( a flurry over here is made up of more than three ) in which a minion brought up the Marine General who said “war is a racket” and refused to go along with the plot to overthrow the crippled hump FDR.  Now, personally, I don’t know what the hell he was thinking.  The question he should have been asking himself was, “why NOT overthrow the bankers teet dangling parasite?”  But we won’t get sidetracked on that other than to say whatever fascist government the corporations wanted to replace FDR and the Federal Reserve Bank with most likely would have been preferable-although I grant you that is in hindsight.  My point is that a good man did try to do something and from his popularity it seems he had a lot of people that wanted to emulate him.

Over the generations many people have fought the good fight trying to roll back government power, enforce the laws we have such as immigration regulations, keep real predators in jails rather than drug users, the list goes on and on.  And nothing changes.  Things just keep getting worse and worse because people don’t have any power.  We talk and talk and slap each other on the back and congratulate ourselves on electing a true patriot and know we have stopped evil and things keep getting worse.  And it is all for a very simple reason.  Not because an insidious One World Gooberment is itching to send Blue Helmets into your neighborhood ( before you get stupid with his conspiracy fantasy, please just look at the combat strength of any UN force, any European army, any non-US unit in Afghanistan, and tell me how any of them could occupy any place other than gun free zone New York City or similar ) or that the evil Democrats are commies ( most of our post-9/11 laws stripping the Constitution were from Republicans ) or that Skittles Eaters in the ghetto are breaking the treasury with welfare ( any single bank bailout is far more than all the welfare programs to the poor combined ever ).  The humps in charge have paid to remain in power, and the cost is chump change compared to the profits.  Every whining pitiful flag waving asswhore complaining about it all is bought and paid for ( including myself ), and even if it isn’t a conscious sell out it is still accepting the Kings Coin out of lack of any other choice paired with the knowledge that without it no food feeds their family.  The good ol free US of A is far more of a state run economy than Nazi Germany ever was, simply better disguised.  Most is back-door, three parties removed, but the population is firmly in golden handcuffs.

  1. Though I often disagree (and sometimes wince) with what Spirko says over at The Survival Podcast, his podcast from the other day aligns well with what you're saying here today, Lord Bison.

    Namely, that we are currently living in a "disaster". Sure, we have charmed lives and incredible freedoms by many standards, but our country (its citizen, its politicians, our culture, etc) has decoupled from reality in quite a drastic manner. By that I mean that it will only take one big (or semi-big) national / domestic event to turn survivalism from a hobby into an actual living and breathing lifestyle.

    Whether it be a pandemic, severe economic crash, or a mega natural disaster (meteorite, epic tsunami or earthquake, etc) - our country is not ready for anything other than marshal law...and the citizens will embrace it. Look how everybody was gung-ho for war and the Patriot Act following 9/11. People experienced the months following 9/11 as "a coming together of America"...and in certain ways it was.

    A majority of us agreed that we needed to go out and fight people in the Middle East while simultaneously making it easier to spy and imprison domestically. Yeah, a real 'coming together' all right. 100,000,000+ people agreeing to flush our toilets at the same time is an awesome display of unity, but I question the productivity of such an action.

    All it takes is one sucker-punch and everybody will be begging for heavier chains from Uncle Sam. Almost all people will be guilty of going along for the ride as that particular worm turns.

    But on an individual level we white trash irregulars can provide patriotic restitution by saying no to the skittles and thus keeping out of the stew-pot (either actually, or metaphorically) come the apocalypse.

    1. Wasn't there recently a thing in England about the grid suffering at a soccar game time out when everyone made tea at the same time? Or was it just everyone turning on the TV at the same time? Something like that. Your "flushing at the same time" made me think of it.

  2. Lord Bison of the Great Basin and King of Coiffure;

    While by a objective standard are we, the people of North America (and really the world, with the exception of the indigenous persons of the remote Amazon Basin) enslaved by the banker masters? Of course we are and have been (by your count since April 14th, 1865). Golden Handcuffs, however is quite a stretch, mine are definitely made of case-hardened titanium (practically impossible to break or melt). I was talking with this old coot at the bus stop on Wednesday and he claims (much like every free-thinker out there) that the guilded cage is of our own creation and because its so freaking comfortable, no one breaks free, and when they do and are moderately successful, they are destroyed by the police state as an example to prevent further attempts.

    This being said, are we minions of Team Bison awaiting the opportunity that never comes or are we merely marking time with the beat of the collapse ready to make ends meet at the junction of petroleum collapse and easy mineral extraction exhaustion? Who's to say; everyone can easily say "If it wasn't for (fill in the miserable excuse), then I would let them have it with both barrels." But rare is the savvy minion that actually let's them have it with both barrels and slips into the "sea of the people" awaiting his or her next opportunity to strike a blow for our non-existent liberty. It boils down to do what you can when you can while maintaining a semblance of non-existent allegiance to the police state. It took the so-called grandaddy of home-grown terrorism, John Brown, over 16 years for his campaign to culminate with his self-titled martyrdom at Harper's Ferry, West Virgina in 1859. In other words striking a blow takes years of preparation, not just 2 weeks of planning, rehearsal, resource accumulation, then striking the blow of the hammer of justice against the banker masters. Know the truth and the truth will make you free!

    Keep keeping it real, James!

  3. About the history. It was just a faction of bankers that wanted to run things more directly vs one that wanted to keep their puppet and lies in place and run things more remotely. If it had gone through there would have already been a follow up revolution that would have been bad for buisness (the bankers that is).

    So better a comfortable long wearing lie or a very painful quickly failing lie?

    Hardly a choice if you can hope to die before the comfortable one breaks down.

  4. From Delta to Delta-Star: You can get there from here!

    It occurs to me that the uber wealthy are every bit as cynical as we are. They see the writing on the wall the same as we do. They see the massive global die-off looming. But the die-off will have at least one positive side effect. It will lower global population closer to a sustainable level in a post oil world. For this discussion we will refer to the current global population as Δ (pronounced Delta), and the long term sustainable population in a post collapse world as Δ* (pronounced Delta-Star). The great die-off will heretofore be referred to as going from Δ → Δ* (Delta to Delta-Star)

    The point I'm getting around to is this. The uber wealthy are planning for their post collapse livelihood just as we are. Only they have more resources at their disposal. In fact, they have the resources to speed up the collapse to preserve more resources for themselves. Timing the collapse is in their best interest. The logic of their position demands, therefore, they engineer the collapse. They will collapse the global banking system, and the economy will deflate so rapidly that the resulting death toll will be not in the millions, but in the billions. Meanwhile, the wealthy will live in fortified and heavily guarded compounds for several years, waiting for famine, fighting, and disease to do its savage job on the rest of us who survived the initial collapse. The wealthy will finally emerge from their comfortable hidey holes when we have reached Δ*. Those of us who remain will supply cheap and willing labor to the wealthy. And I do mean willing. I was going to list examples of some of the ways we will debase ourselves to curry favor with the uber rich in a distressed post collapse world, but I will let you use your imagination (hint: those of you capable of a high degree of oral suction will prosper, relative to the rest of us. practice sucking a tennis ball through a garden hose, therefore. and ensure you are skilled in the art of “playing the rusty trombone” – you have Google, look it up!).

    Δ → Δ*

    1. Isn't it 'a golf ball through a garden hose'?

    3. Golf ball? Could be. I'll yield to the voice of experience! :)

    4. Nah, golf ball is for your uncommon trollop, for your truely rare (and thus valuable) it does in deed need to be the tennis ball, but through a straw, not a hose, that would make one valuable enough to interest the 'Elites' start practicing, or expect to be worthless to them (Me? I expect to be worth more dead than alive to all except my family- and even then that will last as long as the food I can provide...)
