The coming anarchy

Usually, when people think of anarchy, they picture assholes with bandana covered faces smashing the windows of a McDonalds because "Fuck Capitalism, man!" The problem with those girl-jean wearing little pricks is that they aren't anarchists; they're hardcore communists and socialists. "But ghost, what's the difference?" you ask.

For one, they believe that somebody should just take it from those who have and give it to those who don't. These arrogant shitstains think they are the modern day Robin Hoods, stealing from the rich, and... Keeping what they steal. The legend of Robin Hood was about a man who stole BACK from the GOVERNMENT what the GOVERNMENT had stolen from the PEOPLE.

The anarchy I speak of will be much quieter, much more subtle, and far more destructive. It will start when people begin to open their eyes to the separate set of laws that govern you and govern them. When people hear about Brandon Raub and all the bullshit he's had to face this last month, and then they hear about this douchebag, one has to wonder where the FBI is on this one... I'm going to go out on a limb and say that our inJustice Department doesn't investigate this fully without a full media uproar.

We could look at Gibson and Martin guitars; both used the same type of wood in their guitars, but Gibson's were the only ones raided by the Feds with over a million in property seized. No raids or warrants on Martin, a democrat donor. After 2 years of no charges and no chance of their property being returned, Gibson finally gave up and pleaded down (what I personally like to call "prosecutorial blackmail") just to put this bullshit behind them.

But this, this is what will send people over the edge. People talk about the need for police, and how if citizens are armed, more innocent bystanders will be needlessly gunned down. To that, Eric Peters and myself would like to ask, "What now, motherfucker?" They love to say that the Colorado massacre would have been exponentially worse if the citizens in the theatre had been given a fighting chance and the ability to shoot back. Well, with police, it is exponentially worse. Did you click that link? You should. A woman calls 911 to report a masked man acting suspicious. Cops show up and see unmasked female homeowner, who says, "I'm the homeowner," which is when the cops shot her.

We hear these stories all the time; Cops abusing authority to steal money, abusing authority in minor traffic stops, not to mention the drug war and all the violence and death associated with it, and of course the wrong-house raids, which of course, have a tendency to end in dead citizens, dead dogs, or dead cops.

When the population begins to understand that the laws that are being passed have nothing to with safety, and everything to do with control, anarchy will come. If you're a grown ass adult, and you choose to risk your life not wearing a seat belt, that should not be just cause for police to stop you, search you, arrest you, and steal your shit. The only reason it's against "the law" to drive without a seatbelt is because police needed another reason to pull you over. There are so many laws on the books, that cops don't even know when someone is not actually breaking the law.

We've all worked for some bullshit corporation that has bullshit rules that they don't ask everyone to follow, right? Have you figured out why? It's so, when they decide they don't like you anymore, they can "justly" fire you. That's why we have so many laws. It's not to keep us safe, it's to give the tax collectors a reason to stop you, harass you, and steal your property.

Anarchy is coming. Not because we want to smash windows and steal what we want, but because we are done recognizing flawed authority. They are human beings, flawed as we all are. If every man is flawed, how can any man assume authority over another? Why do we let them? We can all live by decent morals and ethics without jackbooted thugs threatening us.

The anarchy that's coming will start with non-compliance. Why should we follow the laws that law enforcement refuses to follow themselves? Thomas Jefferson is rumored to have said (I don't know, I wasn't there), "If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so."

Every day, more people are waking up and saying "Fuckit." Soon, it will be the majority of us. And what a glorious day it will be.

  1. To be honest, I don't see something like this happening. I could be wrong, not sure if I want to be wrong or not... The Revolution (a secession, really) worked out pretty well, all things considered. Who can say what will happen if everyone decides to stop shrugging and start fighting.

    One of the trends I noticed when reading holocaust memoirs is that people in the camps and ghettos always wanted to wait to see what would happen. They waited and waited as many people died. There were very few instances of mass resistance like at Sobibor and Auschwitz (note that there were 3 Auschwitz camps: Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II Birkenau, and Auschwitz III Monowitz).

    People today are "waiting" by participating in the elections even though they probably know deep down that they are going to get stabbed in the back.

    *shrug* I could be wrong.

  2. Hopefully, we'll learn from history before it's too late.
