Most sane people agreed that having
nowhere near the sites of the 9/11 attacks was good, having no desire to have them desecrated by its presence.
He still made some
did the desecration duties in New York. More interesting was
of citizens of New Mexico to the latest fit of insanity by the governor.
While the likely outcome is anyone's guess there is some comfort in knowing that the enemy is collectively below the median intelligence line while the
eventual opposition is well above. And they're prepared, which is the difference between the coming attempt to subdue the population of a country
with all the others. I don't like thinking about it, whatever form it takes, but given the enemy's absolute confidence it is likely to try it soon.
Unless there is a pause after 2024. Certainly a return of Trump to the White House would be the best possible situation - assuming they don't succeed with
the ultimate sanction - and certainly interesting.
Anyway, someone uttered the iconic Solzhenitsyn quote:
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain
whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire
city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing
left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly
have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom
enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
Remember that the population of Russia was nowhere near as well-armed as the USA of today - what nation is or ever has been? - and the millions of partisans will make short work of their
would-be masters. But it will be ugly. Some have suggested that the Jan 6 gulag is creating dozens, perhaps hundreds of Timothy McVeighs, assuming one believes the official
version of events. He was angry about a hundred-and-something men, women and children massacred at Waco (and the teenaged son and wife of Randy Weaver murdered by FBI agents) -
what will hundreds of people whose lives have been destroyed and have nothing left to lose do? Solzhenitsyn said something else:
"You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power - he's free again.
Many have been freed already, and it will continue. But back to the first observation - where would we be if the cops who dragged elderly women off to jail for not wearing a
mask had been set upon by angry citizens and beaten to a pulp. The first one might not do it, or the second, but sooner or later... or what if a high school dressing room
full of teenaged girls had taken care of business when a male pervert - mentally ill or not - entered the room. Pain works when there's enough of it.
I've heard it said that a cop who will run speed traps will violently arrest a grandmother in a bank lobby or an old man praying outside an abortion mill. I submit that those
same cops will round up the people in their community and put them on buses or trains or livestock haulers for transportation to detention camps. Not all of them, but the one
who refuse will be few.
