If things turn out too badly, we might have to lock and load.
The protection of our right to our weapons is the most important of all our near-term undertakings. Fortunately, recent Supreme Court decisions appear to have reinforced this control on the actions of the State, but the right must be exercised to be meaningful. Just as one must know whence the threat approaches, one must be prepared to meet it with all the force one can command. If our political masters are so desirous of retaining their power and prestige that they invalidate our elections, whether by fraud or by decree, we must be prepared to march, and bleed, and die.Then there is this depressing thought:
If confronted by that requirement, many vocally ardent freedom advocates will accept fetters and subjugation in preference.
So, where does the enemy appear to be weakest? How can we defeat them without having to confront or overly test our fair weather patriots, who, none the less are still on our side? Well that's what Part III is about.
Yet, of the several bastions held by the techno-fascists, their media megaphone is the only one that's seriously threatened at this time. It constitutes a weak point in their battle array. Because of the abovementioned alternatives and their expanding reach, the Old Media are losing "mindshare," and are growing ever less relevant to journalism in our time. Our batteries are penetrating this bastion; therefore, we must rush more forces into the breach.
Unfortunately, our current positions require adjustment. There's too much emphasis on interpretation -- opinion-editorial pieces -- which is essentially counter-battery fire. Though worthwhile, it has a defensive cast, and no war has ever been won on defense. To seize the offensive, we must take up the tasks the Old Media have relegated to secondary importance: the gathering of facts and their objective presentation to interested readers.
I have to admit that I myself have largely taken the easy road here. Having no special knowledge, or contacts with those who do, I have been left to read the papers, gather what seem to be relevant stories, and highlight those coupled with my own insights. But in the end, mine is an opinion site. This site started out essentially to justify my carrying of a gun, which seemed to need justifying, but I quickly learned that it didn't really. How that came about is a story for another day. Meanwhile my blog quickly expanded its as I saw the coming disaster that was to be the Obama administration. I tried to warn people, only to be called a racist and worse. I firmly felt that while second amendment rights were certainly important, I wanted all my rights to be recognized, and respect in the breech. So that is where we are.
I will have to consider how to become a reporter of objective news.
