Something every tyranical/communist state practices (d). Destroy the history, destroy the culture, IE destroy the foundations of a society, so that ‘the utopia’ can be built from the ashes.
Granted, I did not grow up in a communist country, though I have had friends who did, a dentist who did, and I have been in some third world shitholes that bore eerie resemblance to stories those people passed on to me.
Before this it was (and is) the dismantling of Civil War landmarks, statues, and memorials.
And to boot, we have Commutard Maxine Waters playing the instigator to further civil disruptions. (My personal take on the current ‘outtings’ by the lefties isn’t printable just yet.)
An active invasion being reported from the south border, yet almost zero mention refugees from the ME (yet more distraction me thinks)
I’ll tell ya, there are nights where I just come home, double check actions on rifles, verify ammo stock, make certain my water tank is full, and eyeball the pantry. It doesn’t change anything, but it does make me feel better about the situation.
One good thing came out today. The White House released a proposal to “downsize” the federal encroachment. I downloaded a copy and am reading through it. Not bad, but not far enough IMO. Not that it will ever actually happen either. But it is nice seeing the scum losing their frickin skulls over it. One big problem, at least to me, is in education. The proposal calls for merging the DEdu with DOL (dept of labor), where, IMO, both departments need to be obliterated with no replacements. (Along with a few dozen others but lets be frugal for this post.) One other point that keeps creeping in while I am reading is of a historical nature. Other countries have ‘restructured’ in similar fashion in the past and the end result was far closer to socialist than we currently are. The people in charge of these “mergers” would be people in system, so you know the new rules would be quite similar to, if not plagerized from, what is currently on the 68gazzilion pages of rules we currently live under.
A complete reset would be less painful.
JMO of course.
Follow those links, read what others are thinking. My thoughts are rather benign in comparison to some.
Some are saying this Civil War V3 went hot when that leftie shot up the congresscritters at the baseball field. I’m thinking that event was this rounds raid on the Harper Ferry Arsenal. Not a decisive turning point, but a violent precursor of things to come. (Still others say things went hot with Ruby Ridge and Waco 1. But I digress)
I have little doubt we are on the cusp of the next chapter. I doubt the ‘Union’ will survive it this time around, and yet, that doesn’t bother me. The pain and blood that will be shed does, but every birth is painful and bloody, and I honestly believe that this new chapter will be the birth of something better. If the maps linked in a previous post are even remotely accurate, the breakup will be far more stable than the creeking leviathan we currently reside within.(after the fact of course, things will be crazy for years before they get better.)
Keep your preps close and your people closer. Times short.
