The person with the handle "Saeko" over on that forum is a fascist. What's the use in engaging these people in argument, phaed?

The only good fascist is a very, very dead fascist.

So, all of these people have their ideologies....therefore, what?

Phaed, you know it only comes down to this Ernie Hancock quote-

"There are those who just want to be left alone, and those who just won't leave them alone. Which one are you?"

Freedom belongs to those who are willing to fight for it. I firmly believe that now. I see very little reason to evangelize any longer. All of those people on that site with their philosophy degrees can eat a dick. You read it yourself, phaed, they will never stop trying to force you to live by their ideology. Only bullets will stop them. Non-violent resistance is bullshit. It's NEVER worked. The guys on Free Talk Live always talk about how it has worked, and they always cite this book written by some PhD. Show me an example where non-violent resistance has lead to a non-violent society, fully taken to its logical conclusion. They like to talk about how violent resistance has never worked, because violent governments still exist, but they fail to apply the same standard to their own arguments.

Gandhi would not have been successful without Singh.
MLK would not have been successful without X. 

In these instances of "successful" non-violent resistance, there was some violent actor in the background winning the hearts and minds of those who refused to accept a slave morality, and be non-violent to their oppressors. Fuck that.

These people understand force(although not directly, as they would no doubt run away if they had to actually face the type violence they advocate, head on). So, you have to speak in a language they understand - violence. That guy DrLee over on PoFo would shit if he saw phaed standing over his bed in the middle of the night ready to discuss who has the right to force whom to do what.

I came across a pretty large and diverse political forum (link below).  if you folks have the time and inclination, i find it's a decent opportunity to expose yourselves to a lot of people from around the world with different views in one setting.  some might raise your blood pressure or make your head explode.  some, i've learned from.  some have been useful in refining the language and precision of my thoughts.

general forum:

Ironic, that when used in conjunction with 9/11, it is used to extinguish any inquiry or questions into the official gov't story about 19 guys who conspired to commit a crime. Thus the official narrative is within itself a conspiracy theory.

But it is used primarily as a way to somehow discredit those who have opposing views.

The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round.

I would have posted that in The Conspiracy Files.


Why? It's an article about the definition of words, not a story about any "conspiracy."

@Hank, I realize that the "Civil War" was no such thing, but a War for Southern Independence, hence the use of the quotations. I do however, try and temper what I write as in order to hopefully not put off people of different persuasions to my over all message. I fully understand most in here have similar views. I don't need to convince any of you in here of anything. Hopefully my story, or at least parts of it, will touch and resonate with those whose minds may still be trapped. Thus I attempt to write and speak in terms they are familiar with and don't find overtly offensive to their indoctrination.

Franklin TN is a really cool little town if you ever get down there. I have visited most of the "civil war" sites in TN, except interestingly enough, Shiloh. I always have other things going on during the annual re-enactment.

@Bill and the rest. I think this is a great exercise for myself, as well as others. I don't think the benefit lies so much in others reading my story as it lay in me reminding myself of how I got here. Our own stories are self revealed strategies to pry open the minds of others to the truth of our own oppression and potential roads towards the salvation of freedom.

So to you all, remember where it is that you came from and the incremental steps that you took to get to where you are today and help lead others towards freeing themselves. I believe Harriet Tubman claimed she freed a thousand slaves, and she could have freed ten thousand more if they only but knew they were slaves. It's a process that takes time and patience. What we now see as truth beyond reproach, we almost all saw as foreign, dangerous or even offensive.

I always say that freeing minds is like growing tomatoes from seed. (Maybe one day I will explain that analogy). Enough for now.

Cheers!

I understand that but I prefer to use precise or correct language and I will explain to those who don't know that it is correct why it is correct. However I will use correct language and terms that are what I believe are the least offensive to those who are not of like mind as to not detract from the message. Rather than call the war the War of Yankee Aggression or 2nd War of Independence or War for southern Independence when I am speaking to people who I don't know are of like mend I use the term War Between the States because it is accurate and most people not of like mind find it acceptable. So I get where you are coming from. :)  However there are times when people don't get it and so sometimes I have an inclination to respond in this manner: http://youtu.be/ozP-HgFfCr4?t=4s

I like the story of Todd Carter. I find it one of the most interesting stories of the war. He literally fought and died defending his own property. As a general's aide he generally did not participate in combat but because the Battle of Franklin was literally fought on his own family's property he asked to lead the charge against the enemy. As a soldier he had the very rare opportunity of dying in his home after the battle he was mortally wounded in surrounded by his family.

        " Come on boys, I'm almost home!"
