Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

It has been said that Western societies are "high-trust" societies, that is, members of these societies trust their fellow citizens and the various institutions that keep the systems running.  We trust each other to (in the majority) behave honorably.  We trust the police to identify and apprehend the suspect when our fellow citizens fail our trust.  We trust the justice system to try and punish, if necessary, those suspects.  We trust the banks to hold our money and at least not lose it.  We trust our media to report the facts.  We trust our government to treat us fairly.

And how much of what I just wrote above is true today?  Not just here, but in Europe as well?

What happens when a high-trust society no longer is high-trust?

You get chaos.

I ran across the Yuri Bezmenov interview video several years ago.  Ignore the interviewer.  Ignore Bezmenov's background.  Ignore references to the KGB - they were supplanted by homegrown converts decades ago.  Ignore everything except for what he is saying.  Pay close attention to that.

Because it sure looks like we're moving towards the endgame right now.

  1. De-moralization - complete beyond anyone's imagination
  2. Destabilization - in progress
  3. Crisis - ?
  4. Violent change of power
  5. Re-normalization

Oh, and BTW the actions we're seeing in Dallas are pretty much the definition of Pressing the "Fuck It" Button.

I've posted a follow-on piece.
