There is this disease rolling through patriot circles, prepper circles, veteran circles, liberal circles, conservative circles, religious circles, which makes people ill. That should cover 99% of America, and I really hope I’m wrong. So see if you are one of the diseased.
That disease has allowed the violation of the most fundamental right we all have, the ability to be… free of tyranny.
This American disease goes something like this.
The primary purpose of the social contract is to create peace, prevent war, and to keep each other from injury. The US Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 11) bans the making of war without the approval of both houses of Congress.
You probably know this much, but this is where the infection is rampant. And the infection has prevented the rest of the constitutional remedy from reaching the brain, and that causes an illness called ignorance to take over. And ignorance is deadly.
This approval for war, was to be required not just for an existing military to attack another country, but for a military to be raised at all.
Have we discovered a new illness? No! In fact you might have this disease yourself, right now! This disease has become rampant. So rampant in fact, that if it is not cured it will completely consume our liberty, and the entire national budget.
A remedy for this disease was known by the founding doctors of our nation, and so they gave a prescription for it. So please, please… TAKE THE MEDICINE.
In fact, it was in the first prescription for the disease called, “loss of liberty and freedom.”
When they penned their first prescription, in a remedy written into Article One of the Constitution, it was understood that an army would not be even raised, or deployed into war unless the citizen-soldiers went willingly.
“Civilian” control over the military meant popular control, not presidential. But then came along Mr. and Ms. Scarry. Unfortunately, they were a diseased couple, and were unable to get on top of their household budget, because they are un/under-employed.
Scarry believes that we’re suffering from the false idea that we’re in a permanent emergency, and that in an emergency there’s no time to think. In fact, the Constitutional constraints on war were intended precisely for emergencies, Scarry argues, and are needed precisely then. But an emergency that can be dealt with by raising an army is perhaps different from an emergency that will leave everyone on earth dead by tomorrow either with or without the US government having the opportunity to contribute its measure of mass-killing to the general apocalypse. The latter is, of course, not an emergency at all, but an insistence on glorified ignorance to the bitter end. An emergency that allows time to raise an army is also different from an emergency involving 21st century “conventional” weapons, but not nearly as different as we suppose. Remember the desperate urgency to hit Syria with missiles last September that vanished the moment Congress refused to do it? The mad rush to start a war before anyone can look too closely at its justifications does, I think, benefit from nuclear thinking — from the idea that there is not time to stop and think. source
Yes, I think there is always a need to be battlefield ready, and to have permanent defenses in place, but I say no to a standing army. No to a standing army not only is constitutional it cures the disease as well as makes sense, even in 2014.
Let’s get the troops in foreign lands back home, and get them jobs by de-funding the military. Yes you read that correctly, d-e-f-u-n-d the military industrial complex. And mind our business at home like JOBS. But the only way to cure this problem is to get rid of the disease, called ignorance.
Have you ever wondered if they are burning books… again?
Only this time it is a bit different.
Blocking access to sites is a parent’s right. However, what about blocking a person from general information from another country because the country you are in doesn’t like that other country’s websites. Like North Korea blocking American sites. Or, how about American puppet masters blocking Americans from an Iran website?
That is what today’s “book burning” looks like.
Try going to http://english.irib.ir/
Did you get in? If you did you are not being censored, but most are. I was not able to get in until I turned on Anonymox, the add-on to Firefox.
Should we be getting only information about/from Iran, that is filtered through politicians? We have a basic right and obligation, to check out the information we all are being shoveled from the politicians.
But somewhere along the line, the government thinks they can burn books… again.
There is this cop disease, that causes cops to think they can make you stop recording them in public. They are lying or ignorant, and both qualifies them for unemployment. That pervasive tyrannical attitude is coming to an end.
Ask any Indianapolis “policeman” about that now, and you will hear grumbling. Yeah the grumbles have been really whiny, especially since the court ordered them to stop arresting people, and made law enforcement send notices out to all cops to cease and desist. Oh yeah, they had to fork over 6 digits to a man they arrested for doing it…ooops.
Book burning, and censoring rights guaranteed by the US Constitution is well under way in America under the “color” of legal. More 6 and 7 digit lotteries coming soon, to a court near you.
I have below, two very important bits of information. One is a shortwave radio frequency list for listening to English language broadcasts out of Iran. And the last is a movie you must watch.
The movie may start out a bit slow, but give it time and you will be miffed I’m sure.
