The modern English AKA American capitialist/ mercantilist state appears to be invincible.
It has computers, spy satellites, SWAT teams, DNA testing, etc. They also have weapons that are so advanced and scary that the state claims that they would never use
them unless it was an extreme emergency! Should you give them a reason, they might deem you an extremist that requires extreme
Look at the events at Waco, Texas, and Ruby Ridge, Idaho. These people were exterminated because they were not integrating
well into the system, and they possessed weapons. "Gun nuts and right wing militia members" by definition.
The fact that the courts later found that Randy Weaver and his family were executed at Ruby Ridge without cause by the BATF only highlights the problem.
David Koresh and the Branch Davidions had tanks, napalm, and
military assault teams used against them. This was ordered by the then US Attorney General, Janet Reno. Coincidences abound in this old world. First, the David Koresh group is exterminated
in Waco, Texas. Then, George W. Bush bought the Crawford Ranch in Texas, after an appropriate amount of time had passed. Crawford,
Texas is only 18 miles from Waco, Texas. Hmmmmm!
These acts were done with the sanction of the US Supreme Court that allows for
the circumvention of The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. The Posse Comitatus Act was enacted to end the military domination of the South after the Civil War.
These people were exterminated in the US by government forces, and yet they had
never violated any laws of this country. Is there any historical evidence that might assist us in creating another stategy?
Direct confrontation is out of the question.
The most obvious choice would be to try passive resistance, Gandhi style. Gandhi was the man who broke the British yoke
controlling India. How did he actually accomplish this feat? Certainly not by complete nonviolence!
Who was Mahatmas Ganhdi ? Gandhi went all the way in the system of the English Imperialists. He moved to England, went to their universities,
became a member of the English Bar (a lawyer as it were), was about to be admitted to the High Court of England (More prestigious
than being admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court). Gandhi was introduced
to the Bhagavad Gita (the great Indian Epic) while he was in England. He resigned his Royal appointments, and returned to India.
We only repeat the circle, to come back to the zero point (home) with understanding. Gandhi never studied the Bhagavad Gita in India, as it was frowned upon by those who mattered (the British Raj).
Gandhi then moved to South Africa, and remained there some 20 years. He returned to India to become a journalist, and then
he become a politician. "His interventions earned Gandhi a considerable reputation, and his rapid ascendancy to the helm of nationalist politics is signified
by his leadership of the opposition to repressive legislation (known as the "Rowlatt Acts") in 1919. His saintliness was not uncommon, except in someone like him who immersed himself in politics, and
by this time he had earned from no less a person than Rabindranath Tagore, India’s most well known writer, the title
of Mahatma, or ‘Great Soul.’
When ‘disturbances’ broke out in the Punjab, leading to the massacre of a large crowd of unarmed Indians at
the Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar and other atrocities, Gandhi wrote the report of the Punjab Congress Inquiry Committee. Over
the next two years, Gandhi initiated the non-cooperation movement, which called upon Indians to withdraw from British institutions,
to return honors conferred by the British, and to learn the art of self-reliance; though the British administration was at
places paralyzed, the movement was suspended in February 1922 when a score of Indian policemen were brutally killed by a large
crowd at Chauri Chaura, a small market town in the United Provinces. Gandhi himself was arrested shortly thereafter, tried
on charges of sedition, and sentenced to imprisonment for six years. At The Great Trial, as it is known to his biographers, Gandhi delivered a masterful indictment of British rule." Owing to his poor
health, Gandhi was released from prison in 1925.
In 1942, Gandhi issued the last call for independence from British rule. On the grounds of what is now known as August Kranti Maidan, he delivered a stirring speech, asking every Indian to lay down their life, if necessary, in the cause of freedom.
He gave them this mantra: "Do or Die"; at the same time, he asked the British to ‘Quit India.’ The response of the British government was to place Gandhi under arrest, and virtually the entire Congress
leadership was to find itself behind bars, not to be released until after the conclusion of the war.
One of life’s great ironies is that Gandhi was a follower of the principles of Henry David Thoreau. Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau was one of Gandhi’s favorite’s books. Another irony is that Henry David Thoreau
was a devotee of the Bhagavad Gita. Freedom from the illusions, conspiracies, and the insane legal and social mechanisms that are created by mankind
is the great goal of the few who value their sovereignty."
"The mass of men serve the state thus, not as men mainly, but as machines, with their bodies. They are the standing army, and the militia, jailers, constables, posse comitatus, etc. In most cases there
is no free exercise whatever of the judgement or of the moral sense; but they put themselves on a level with wood and earth
and stones; and wooden men can perhaps be manufactured that will serve the purpose as well. Such command no more respect than
men of straw or a lump of dirt. They have the same sort of worth only as horses and dogs. Yet such as these even are commonly
esteemed good citizens. Others--as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders--serve the state
chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without
intending it, as God. A very few--as heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and men--serve the state with
their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part; and they are commonly treated as enemies by it. A
wise man will only be useful as a man, and will not submit to be "clay," and "stop a hole to keep the wind away," but leave
that office to his dust at least:
"I am too high born to be propertied, To be a second at control, Or useful serving-man and instrument To any sovereign
state throughout the world.""Henry David Thoreau
"This American government--what is it but a tradition, though a recent one, endeavoring to transmit itself unimpaired to
posterity, but each instant losing some of its integrity? It has not the vitality and force of a single living man; for a
single man can bend it to his will. It is a sort of wooden gun to the people themselves. But it is not the less necessary
for this; for the people must have some complicated machinery or other, and hear its din, to satisfy that idea of government
which they have. Governments show thus how successfully men can be imposed upon, even impose on themselves, for their own
advantage. It is excellent, we must all allow. Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity
with which it got out of its way. It does not keep the country free. It does not settle the West. It does not educate. The
character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if
the government had not sometimes got in its way. For government is an expedient, by which men would fain succeed in letting
one another alone; and, as has been said, when it is most expedient, the governed are most let alone by it. Trade and commerce,
if they were not made of india-rubber, would never manage to bounce over obstacles which legislators are continually putting
in their way; and if one were to judge these men wholly by the effects of their actions and not partly by their intentions,
they would deserve to be classed and punished with those mischievous persons who put obstructions on the railroads".
Henry David Thoreau maintained his sovereignty, and Gandhi broke the English rule over India using the principles found
in the book, Civil Disobedience, by Henry David Thoreau.
In general, the definition of personal sovereignty is "one over whom the courts have no jurisdiction." This definition is out of Bouvier’s law dictionary.
Another good definition is "a self-directed individual man or woman." A third definition is "one who owes no one anything.""
The Amish people of Pennsylvania forced the government to exempt the Amish from Social Security taxes in 1965. Learn the principles of civil disobedience, and get your sovereignty back. It’s your choice.
I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live
for mine. JOHN GALT ATLAS SHRUGGED
