Brief Intro to TACTICAL CIVICS™ Please note, although I held the title of “co-founder” of the TC mission for several years, in February of 2022 David Zuniga the founder excommunicated me from his organization because of a disagreement about how to recruit militia into it, and nothing I say should be construed as representing the […]
The name, as most of you know, comes from what I consider one of the great documents of human history, a true watershed, in which our forefathers asserted, and soon after established by force of arms, fundamental principles of Divine Law that underlie the great experiment in freedom under God that we call the United […]
Contra Con-con I strongly oppose the proposed “Convention of States”, “Con-Con, or any wholesale revison of our federal Constitution, for a number of reasons. First, our Constitution already contains numerous important restrictions on the power and reach of government, and guarantees of our rights. They are being ignored. If existing restrictions and guarantees are ignored […]
My Most Essential Prep (Originally written for the excellent website survivalblog.com) Blissful ignorance is not for us. We look at the folks buying tonight’s supper and no more at the grocery store, at those “stocking up” with two loaves of bread and a gallon of milk before a storm, with indulgence if we are kind, […]
Political Terminology…or words we often hear “Capitalism”, if you really want to think straight, is not properly opposed to “Communism”. The economic system properly opposed to capitalism, is individual enterprise. The term, “capitalism” obviously derives from the word “capital”, which in this context means some form of wealth, often tools, equipment, or facilities used in […]
Betty and her Basket, Or: Capitalism and the Corporation I begin with a definition for capitalism based on the structure of the word. “Capital” in economics means productive assets or tools. A gatherer of fallen fruit needs no capital to start her business…until she decides she needs a basket. That basket is, for her enterprise, […]
A civil society stands on the rule of law, not the changing and arbitrary whims of men. And the Law stands on three legs.
First is, well, The Law. We get the concept of Law from God. The universe runs on physical law, and cannot run without it. It cannot be broken. Think of gravity. God also made Moral Law, for us. While in His infinite wisdom, He allows us to break it (not without consequences!), anyone can see that societies that disrespect it, fail. For any human-made rule to be true law, it must comport with God’s Law, and, in the USA, with our Constitution. This we have.
The second leg is a broad consensus on what that law is and what it means, People at large must understand it, and know and recognize its necessity and legitimacy. That, we do NOT have enough of, today. Most “sheeple” think that anything that somebody with a gov job says is “law”, IS Law. Some see so much garbage wrongly called “law”, and see actual law so badly corrupted, that they think that law itself is bad, or is dead, and we have to make justice by violence…THAT is an oxymoron, and not a world any sensible person wants to live in. So we have to TEACH what good law looks like, where it comes from, how to distinguish it from bureaucratic bullshit and the lies of would-be tyrants.
The third leg is force. Sorry, but it is true. We always hope that mere availability of force, like the pistol on the cop’s hip (or Teddy Roosevelt’s Big Stick), is enough, and it does not need to be unholstered. But for those who have no respect for the Law, it has to be there.
Although there are a lot of patriots training, “we” do not now have the level of force capability, nor the required communication and coordination to apply it effectively. Most important, too few people understand that our Constitution requires that we-the-People, acting as Militia (and Grand Juries), are the final, necessary and lawful check on rogue government. It MUST be emphasized that application of force without public consensus that it is in fact an operation of law, will only contribute to chaos, and feed the totalitarian globalists’ lie that Patriot = vigilante=terrorist.
