Publisher’s Note: Another bombing in hoplophobic Albion and the UK authorities can be counted on to double down on any criticism levied against the primary religious adherents (Sunni Wahhabist Salafist jihadists funded out of the The Amphibian’s favorite ME hell-hole). The mindless checkered drones will quickly be called upon to punish any Briton who dares to question the government subsidized wave of bipedal killing machines to wreak mayhem on the island.
I would say they need to gun up but the British men have been gelded for so long they’d be a more significant danger to themselves with a gun than the invaders have to worry about.
I’ve been watching the Showtime series Billions and the anti-capitalistic, pro-government drivel is nauseating. The video medium is fully captive to the government supremacism that saturates the public square now. But Axelrod’s character by Band of Bothers’ Damian Lewis is scintillating.-BB
The Deep State continues to wage an interesting war on freedom and individual liberty at every turn. From talk of banning laptops on flying prison camps known as American flagged airlines to ahistorical accusations of Russian intrigue in US elections and beyond. The predictability of the Deep State in its chess game for maintenance and expansion of power is readily predictable by the dimmest of bulbs. They are simply continuing to weave the western tapestry of leviathan government into the fabric of every facet of human life. They employ a totalitarian iconography that in its most recent manifestation is born of WWI.
There may be no greater and more honest symbol of government than mountains of human bones and skulls. It should adorn every flag. The one freedom the state always grants is your decision to be maimed or killed for them. They’ll never limit that option.
Any Frenchman born in 1892 stood an even chance of being killed or wounded during the coming conflict in WWI.
As the late Ralph Raico points out, where would Communism and National Socialism be on the world stage if it weren’t for the Great War?
Until that time, the Marxists and their burgeoning intellectual chattering classes had not had the canvas not the egregious opportunity to try these terrific leviathan government on human beings. The magical confluence of mass media, modern police state machinations and the bureaucratic ability to start to track and engineer every human desire and behavior was in an embryonic stage and the war enabled all of the statist malefactors to put their evil plans in train.
Just five days ago on May 17 marked the hundredth anniversary of the Selective Service Act, an obnoxiously understated law that put the notion of slavery in a different caste and even flew in the face of a strict interpretation of the awful 14th Amendment. Lincoln’s draft law had been revived from the dead and the usual suspects started plotting the maiming and murder of hundreds of thousands of young men as the War Pigs in DC gathered around their cauldron to stir up trouble for the US by involving it in a conflict that had no bearing whatsoever on the commerce or freedom of non-government humans.
