The question, gentle reader is- Why have you done nothing? Claire Wolf may be right, we may be still at that awkward stage, but why have you done nothing?
The government cannot rule you without your consent.
DO you, in fact, consent to these outrages? If not, why pretend that you do? Aren't we a bit old to play make-believe any more?
What must be done is that we must deny those presently exercising authority our consent.
We must not allow those presently exercising authority to counterfeit the illusion of legitimacy. They have finally forfeited any claim on legitimate power, and we must make that clear. But how to do that? Some suggest that we withhold payment of taxes and plead the 5th, but April 15th is a long time away, and the Feds don't worry about tax revenue; they just print, borrow and spend what they want. Won't make them blink.
Enough is enough. But, still, what is to be DONE?
I've thought about this and I have a suggestion. I suggest that we take a leaf from the left wing and the history of the labor movement, and call a general strike for two days. No traffic flow, no business conducted, no gas stations open, no nothing. Except pots and pans being banged together outside the orifices of government, a' la' Argentina, and at every major intersection. Day and night. For two days, at least to start.
No initiation of force, no Fort Sumters, no violation of life, liberty or property.
But no consent. No permits, no passes. No lists, no central planning, no making things easy for shills and spies or provocateurs. Just a general strike, for two days.
Liberty on Strike! No freedom, no consent!
If you own a business, close it.
If you work, call in. I'm sick of tyranny, how about you?
If you are retired, there are all sorts of activities for you.
You might enjoy leisurely drives on your favorite commuting routes. Very leisurely. Don't want to speed, y'know. You might even stop at the scenic points along the way and enjoy the view. Encourage all those drivers behind you to get out and enjoy the day.
How about July 17th and 18th? Is that enough time? What say you?
