As a Libertarian, as an Anarcho-Capitalist, I would like to believe that the free-market can provide anything that we need. Especially with the current growth in technology, public service sectors are seeming more and more archaic/outdated. Hell,… even private services like Google and Youtube is looking far more compelling as an educational tool than what the government schools can achieve , and at a fraction of the cost! If you want to learn a new language or how to play a guitar you can learn to do so with the click of mouse without ever stepping foot in a government school.
Yet, certain social issues keep coming up, such as , “How can we stop wars without government?”, and “Don’t you think gun control is good? Don’t you think it’s good to keep weapons out of the hands of psychopaths?”
I couldn’t help but to agree……….. under the current disease of statism, I think I support gun control and I am a Libertarian! OMG!! Alas, my version of gun control seems to differ from what most Liberals and Conservatives (Both statists) believe in. My version of gun control is from the perspective of a free, private, sovereign individual who does not believe in a monopolized corporation using racketeering methods calling itself “Government”.
I believe that government itself, especially the federal government, which is far too large and remains as the worlds most monopolized and powerful corporation in the world…….should be barred from the use of weapons. They have created far too much “Blowback” with their treacherous use of force here at home and around the world.
The government, (both state and federal), consists of about 2-4.5 million employees whom carry guns or use some type of weapons. These employees who use weapons are known as Police Officers and Military Soldiers. Yet, their weapons are much different than what you and I probably have in our closets at home. A typical person might have an AK-47, a thousand rounds of ammo, A 9mm glock, a shotgun, a Bowie Knife, and maybe a few homeade pipe-bombs if they are really into the whole, “prepping” or militia movement thing.
However, a typical police officer (Or DHS Agent) has access to an arsenal/storage supply of weapons. A typical police/DHS arsenal, (which is basically a huge warehouse), contains hundreds of thousands of round of ammunition, riot gear, attack dogs, mace, tear gas, shelves full of semi-automatic pistols, shelves of fully automatic rifles, S.W.A.T vans, detention centers, shotguns, Flash Grenades, C4 explosives and yes……… even Tanks! There are many police precincts using Tanks now! And the worst part is, society believes that these millions of police officers/soldiers that exist have the right to beat, kidnap, and kill anyone who doesn’t obey their orders given to them by a monopolized system that is afraid of compete with the free market.
But wait! This is just the beginning.
We all know that Law enforcement Agents can be pretty intimidating and often suffer from “little man syndrome”. They were picked on as kids so they want to act out their power trips as police officers. Just last year alone, more US citizens have died at the hands of police than US servicemen in the wars overseas. However, many police officers are not strangers to overseas war. We often forget that most police officers come from an even more insidious background………the military.
Military personnel of all branches including reserve units are around two million. People who are enlisted in the military have access to weapons that far exceed the firepower of what any law enforcement agency could muster. Compared to the US military, a Police SWAT unit looks like childs-play. The US military and it’s employees wield weapons that are capable of bringing mass genocide in just a blink of an eye. Such weapons include.
Portable RPG rocket launchers capable of being carried by hand.
Apache Helicopters attached with gun turrets using .50 cal rounds capable of putting baseball sized holes into a 300 pound man.
Fully automatic M-16′s that are on “belt feeders”, capable of shooting thousands of rounds without a break.
Stealth Jet Fighters equipped with Laser guided missiles and carpet bombs capable of turning entire cities into a battered mess within seconds.
Chemical and Biological weapons capable of destroying generations due to its effects on reproduction and mutagen effects on the human body.
Rations and Food supply to keep their units feed and nourished for years on end
Nuclear Warheads capable of killing millions of people in the blink of an eye.
Public support/use of Taxation to continuously fund themselves
And these are just the PHYSICAL weapons. Lets not forget the mental/social weapons that the military has. Since most people believe that government authority exists and is legitimate, the government has the public’s support to place embargoes and trade sanctions on other nations that often result in hundreds of thousands of innocent people starving to death. (Must like what happened when Bush, Clinton, and Bush Jr put trade sanctions on Iraq that caused mass deaths to innocent children. 600 thousand to be exact.).
Aside from the military, we must also consider “Para-military” forces like the CIA. Whom are trained to infiltrate groups, sabotage economies, and assassinate individuals without leaving a trace of evidence.
When we consider that the United States Government has 900 bases in 130 countries, and since WW2 the United States government has bombed, assassinated, propped up dictators, interfered in foreign economies using sanctions, and/or has invaded more than 90 countries…………it’s safe to say the US government has pissed off alot of people around the world.
This information is just scraping the surface…..
Yet even with this basic explanation showing just how powerful the government is, and the atrocities that the US government (and pretty much ALL governments) around the world have committed, I can only come to one conclusion.
We must ban all weapons from being used by government employees (of all nations). This is the only gun control that will save the most lives. Governments are just far too organized in their killing efforts.
When you calculate just how many people have been killed due to police interactions or by military interactions performed by the US government, the death count would rank in the millions……….and that’s just if we went back 20 years. Just imagine how much higher that number would be if we went back further, or included ALL governments of the world! All of the school shootings in human history don’t come close to the death governments around the world have left behind.
As much as I like to criticize the US government and other western governments, because of their influence of power, we cannot ignore the fact that ALL governments are inherently evil and corrupt and have blood on their hands.
Many in America and throughout the world claim to be of the christian faith. Yet they forget that Lucifer once offered Jesus power over all of the governments of the world in return for his allegiance. Jesus refused. This got me thinking…………. One can only give away what rightfully belongs to him. Since the devil had the power to hand over all of the governments of the world to Jesus, then by default, government itself must be of Satanic forces. And surely it is of not moral forces.
For Thomas Jefferson once said,
“If men are not capable of governing themselves, then how can they be trusted with governing others?”
Government (statism), whether it be of the Democratic flavor of genocide or of the Republican form of genocide, they are both inherently immoral and wrong. They thrive on the idea of racketeering and monopolization of their services which are paid for through extortive means. (i.e. taxation). They both claim that you are not righteous enough to choose your own merits in life or how to spend 100% of your money. Both sides want a percentage…
If we are to have a serious conversation about gun control, we must address the true killers, psychopaths, and the blind nationalists who take their patriotism to a religious level, and believe that they have authority over other human beings whether or not they consent. These psychopaths believe that by following orders and killing people across the ocean that they have never met, means that they are fighting for freedom and surely they will be loved and adored and not create any hostility for killings the wives, husbands, and children of other tribesmen. This is wishful thinking….
These psychopaths I describe usually wear a badge or a BDU with sand stripe camo. Calling themselves “Officer” and “Soldier”.
And the psychopaths who give them orders usually wear suits and ties calling themselves “legislators”.
And the people who turn a blind eye and/or vote to give them such monopolized authority call themselves “voters” or believers in the religion of statism. And some of them even wear yellow ribbons to celebrate the murderers.
Don’t get me wrong. There is a big difference between DEFENDING one’s home, or stopping an individual from committing a real crime that involves theft or bodily harm.
Yet its safe to say that killing and kidnapping people for victimless crimes is not the proud duty of a police officer.
And it is safe to say that bombing and killing foreigners just because someone wearing more metals than you on his jacket orders you to do so, is not the proud duty of a soldier.
The best police officers, and the best soldiers are the one’s who refuse to use force when the rest of the world wants them to, even if it means losing their own jobs or being imprisoned (see Bradley Manning). And to these men and women who fall into this category, I only pray that one day your honor and bravery can be better used in an open sourced free-market where your desire to protect others can be done in a less monopolized fashion.
So until guns are banned from the hands of police and military forces…….don’t expect me to give up mine. Who protects us from the so called “protectors” when they get out of line? Think about it…. there are alot more of us than soldiers or police officers. Have we learned nothing from the Vietcong? Numbers matter.
With groups like “Cop-Block” and other private accountability organizations on the rise, the brutality perpetuated by the system is getting harder and and harder to ignore. Just do a google or youtube search on “Police brutality” or “Blowback CIA” just to see some example of government doing what it does best. Instill fear into the masses. A false fear that we cannot live without their so called “protection”.
