Attacking Police and Enacting Violence Will Do Nothing to Stop Brutality — It Will Make it Far Worse

dallas-shootingBy Matt Agorist

Late Thursday night, during an entirely peaceful protest, murderers opened fire on crowds of police officers. Five Dallas cops were tragically killed and six others injured.

These apparently unprovoked attacks on individuals who were not directly involved in threatening the life of the shooters are a hindrance to the progression of liberty and police accountability.

Random acts of violence will only serve to undo what little progress those of us in the peaceful movement have accomplished and, in fact, will reverse it and prevent any future progress.

Violently attacking the government creates victims out of the ones we are trying to expose as criminals.

Those who initiate and support such violence will be complicit in creating the hellish police state that will inevitably ensue as a consequence of their actions.

It will start a war in which the people are the enemy.

We can simply look back to 9-11 as an example of what is to come if this violence continues.

Prior to 9-11 the TSA did not exist, indefinite detention did not exist, the NSA did not spy on American citizens, the police weren’t given armored assault vehicles, and Americans could not be assassinated without trial.

If these acts of aggressive violence against the State continue, we can expect to see what little civil liberties are left to be whisked away in the name of protection from the ‘domestic terror threat.’

We can expect to see peaceful activists rounded up and detained indefinitely. We can expect to see homes raided of individuals who are speaking out against the State. We will see more and more checkpoints, and less and less unmolested travel.

If you think that the American people can somehow win in a war against the military industrial complex that the US has built up in the last decade and a half, you are seriously delusional.

Your AR-15 will do nothing against thermal imaging predator drones equipped with Raytheon’s small tactical munitions designed for blowing up single homes. They will not stop the MRAP as it plows through your front door. No matter how you slice it, the most well-armed American citizen is no match for the hundreds of billions spent annually by the US on warfare.

No, this battle will not be won with weaponry as the US spends more annually on defense than the next 13 largest militaries in the world, combined.

Also, the above scenarios don’t take into account the public’s support. If a group of people rise up and claim to be freedom fighters and they do not have the support of the citizens, well, that “revolution” was over before it started.

If anyone thinks that killing cops and/or praising the death of innocent people will amass public opinion in their favor – again, they are seriously delusional.

Even if a large group was able to get public support and engage in a war against the government, imagine the horrid reality that would come to pass. The US would literally be a war zone and quickly languish into third world status.

As a former Marine, I know that before I woke up to this tyranny, I would have done anything my leaders told me, including initiating force against Americans — especially if there were an increase in the prevalence of unprovoked violence against the State like we just witnessed in Dallas.

However, I also know firsthand how people can change once presented with the information that frees them from their Statist bonds. Most of these police officers are simply brainwashed into thinking they are doing the right thing. They just need to see their true reflection enough times to realize that they are not. It is up to you and me to provide this reflection.

That is why we must win the hearts and minds of the people within the State. We must expose as much of their violence and corruption as we can, for that is what garners support — not murder.

We must show that those of us who stand against this state corruption are the good guys. We are not some violent group of terrorists who are quick to don the pitchforks and torches and beg for blood.

Removal of due process, the initiation of violence, and abuse of power — these are tools of the State, not of the peaceful revolution.

Those who would take an innocent life to incite change are no different than the mass murdering sociopaths within the government.

‘But police are not innocent,’ some will say. What are statements such as that one, other than calls to remove due process and act as judge, jury, and executioner, just like the corrupt police?

Yes, police uphold a system of immoral laws that lead to the harassment, kidnapping and death of innocent people. But these are mere symptoms of a much larger problem.

The police state didn’t suddenly pop up overnight. It’s a product of society. More accurately, it’s a symptom of a sick society that we are all complicit in creating.

Our only means of changing this sick society is changing ourselves. We have to remove our dependency upon a group of people who use violent coercion to achieve what they refer to as “order.” When enough of us do this, the police state becomes irrelevant.

To quote Butler Shaffer from his eye-opening book, The Wizards of Ozymandias: 

We will not become free when the state goes away. Rather the state will go away once we are free.

Taking an aspirin for a headache only masks the symptom of that headache, it does nothing to eliminate the cause.

One cannot eliminate future headaches by constantly taking aspirin, in the same manner that one cannot change a violent State by acting within the rules of that State; violence will only be met with more violence and more support for the State.

We must show that policing society does not have to be like this. We must expose the faults of this archaic system of using violence to solve every problem that arises.

We must show that there are alternatives to this type of policing and these alternatives will eventually make the old system obsolete. This has already begun.

We are now witnessing the free market reacting to an incompetent and violent police state by creating alternative means of community security.

Apps like Peacekeeper, which connects community members directly to each other to foster community interdependence by empowering community members to protect one another, are popping up as a reaction to police violence and corruption.

Organizations like the Threat Management Center in Detroit are popping up in response to police incompetence and negligence, and they are proving to be magnitudes more effective than actual police.

The new system is being built and is quickly showing the obsolescence of the old.

But here is the kicker — all these alternatives go away as long as people keep initiating senseless violence. We can say goodbye to all these positive aspects of society reacting peacefully to the police state. Every act of senseless violence is a step backward in the fight for freedom.

Do not mistake this as a call to pacifism. No one is advocating that you lay down and lick the boots of tyrants as they oppress you.

Self-defense is a natural right. This is why we see laws popping up like the one in Indiana that legalizes the shooting of police if they enter your home and pose an unjust threat to you and your family.

Georgia Sen. Mike Crane is running in the state’s Republican primary to replace U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland. Any politician seeking office in that very “conservative” state must pledge their support to cops and authority figures. But Crane, being a strict constitutionalist, believes that no-knock warrants are illegal and unjust. He was even filmed at a town hall meeting noting how shooting at unannounced intruders in your house is just, regardless of the badge.

The actions that we are taking now like filming the police, photographing and documenting their corruption and standing up to their immoral rule, are the real catalysts of change; and again, they will all go away if the violence continues.

The video of Eric Garner did not lead to the indictment of officer Pantaleo, but it set off a wave of peaceful resistance like we’ve never seen. Sports figures, movie stars, newscasters and even lawmakers have rallied together to put an end to this senseless police brutality.

The two videos of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling were waking Americans up. Now, their tragic deaths are put on the back burner as the nation grieves the senseless murder of the Dallas police officers.

If you think that we are losing this battle, however, think again.

Police are frequently contacting The Free Thought Project and asking how they can help stop this ridiculous police state, and we are working with them to find new ways. One of the ways is a fund that we’ve recently set up to help whistleblower officers.

There are organizations like LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) that are fighting the odds and standing up to their own peers and seeking peaceful change.

There are movements across the country which are forcing police departments to carry their own personal liability insurance. This would stop the unaccountable flow of taxpayer dollars to pay for police misconduct, and hold the officers directly responsible for their actions.

We are winning and can beat these tyrants. But if people continue to stoop to the same level of senseless violence and removal of due process as them, we will not only lose, but guarantee that there will never be another opportunity to resist again.

    in case the author has been sleeping–THE POLICE ARE AT WAR WITH THE PEOPLE. When good cops don’t take a stand against bad cops the good cops are going to be in the line of fire just the same as the good Nazis who were just following orders.

      Agree, seems hopeless. Maybe now it’s best for all patriot websites and talk shows to shut down and go underground (hunker down) since nothing has really been accomplished since the internet got going with patriot websites, talk radio. Downhill esp. since 9/11. Few if any have awakened in years and nothing really gets done. The bad guys have all the weapons and we will be trampled trying to resist any tyranny. Hiding out and leaving cities best option if possible. Many cannot, for various reasons. Train wreck over a cliff just ahead. Article explains exactly why patriots will utterly fail trying anything which is 21 century weaponry and few alpha males in this country left.

  3. “Matt Agorist”…hmmm. For whatever reasons, something makes me question WHY you wrote this article more than what you are saying in it. Could you enlighten us to why you felt the need to push such a message given current state of affairs?

    • To me,it seems he feels the build up of an horrific SWAT like no-holds barred policy of law enforcement, along the lines of the most militant martial law, a Gestapo form of law enforcement, and he is scared to see that become reality. He feels there is only one chance to stop the progression toward martial law, and that is what he is recommending. At the heart of what he is saying is, don’t harm or take on the cops, furthering the “them versus us” mentality that will cause the cops to close ranks and come after every American.

        How do you know the mind of Matt Agorist? Let him defend his own writing. Let him speak for himself. However, he cannot be bothered with such things while he rummages around on the Internet for some story he can spin up and fling onto a website like this one.

        • Since I actually read his article, and have read similar writings, and as i prefaced my remarks, “it seemed to me that he feared the……” Why don’t you try to educate yourself before throwing more hostility, hatred and violence on innocent people. The writer has the same rights you do to put his opinions in writing. You are merely flinging your ignorant opinions on paper. You are merely rummaging around in your uneducated, hateful brain for something to say. Too bad you have nothing worth reading to say.

            I read the article too. That is your first wrong assumption: that I did not.
            I could care less what you are prefacing. I was not speaking to YOU, but Matt.
            I am educated. Your opinion of my education is none of my business. Don’t make it so.
            None are questioning his ‘right’ to an opinion. I asked for his INTENT and WHY. Got reading comprehension?
            I’m not hateful, not uneducated, and if you got issues with what I have to say, then do not respond to me. You added nothing of value other than trying to illegitimately white-knight for Matt Agorist.

  4. “The two videos of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling were waking Americans up.

      A lot of important news stories are now on the back burner. Love your sarcasm!

    • Leave the hat on, it is now a badge of courage of those who actually think for themselves. “Distractions, Distractions”

  5. lets be clear about this, they have brought this on themselves, I have seen four video’s where the police have stopped a car, and each time the people inside the car had no chance, because the police officer behaved like an hysterical schoolgirl, and he has fired his weapon without any provocation from the victim, I am not trying to blow up how good the British police are, but they are way above the US POLICE, in my opinion the US POLICE are the OFFENDERS and the LAWBREAKERS, PLUS NOW THEY HAVE BECOME THE ENEMY, because if any family of mine was killed any these screaming Banshee’s I would want to know the reason why, many of the police officers have served in a war zone before joining the police and they have not been cleared for duty, that is why they cant perform like a normal person, because they are already damaged goods. if something has to change it has to be the police force, because they are coming murder and getting away with it, unless the world is going through a reversal where the good guys are inside, and all the bad guy’s are wearing uniforms.

  6. “There are movements across the country which are forcing police departments to carry their own personal liability insurance. This would stop the unaccountable flow of taxpayer dollars to pay for police misconduct, and hold the officers directly responsible for their actions.” Just a minute, let’s think about this. If ALL the police departments in the U.S. need to take out liability insurance, at the “taxpayers'” expense, and that insurance is going to cover all of the anticipated settlements for police misconduct, won’t that just spread the costs around to “taxpayers” everywhere? Not to mention factoring in a nice fat profit for the “insurance industry?”

        You screen applicants to find those within a narrow range of acceptable intelligence (not too dumb, not too bright), you hire from amongst them a bunch of wannabe legal thugs who believe a badge and gun give them something akin to comic book superpowers over the general populace, you give them military grade weapons and Israeli anti-terrorist style urban warfare training, you show them by incessant Hollywood propaganda and by repeated real-life example that they are in a class of their own, a cadre-in-arms quite literally above the law, and what happens is exactly what you’d expect would happen.

    You boys that are taking old Matt Agorist to task over his sniveling article are right on. In addition to the things you have said and in consideration of the current police war on the people, gang bangers killing cops and cops killing gang bangers is behavior that should be encouraged. After all, both are nothing but mafia like criminal gangs in competition with each other to see how much they can steal from the people.

    The solution to violence is in unity! Unity knows not race, religion or politics; it is intelligence and logic working together to end human insanity. Unity can exist within the Community, Nation, and Humanity; if only, ‘humans’ whatever side they have found themselves on… whether inside or outside of any established and dividing entity… stop and focus on what is right with respect for Life and each other! Unity is the person in the street,,, the police officer … the priest or imam… the diverse natures and colors of our physical garments defined as bodies… the Natural Natures and Foundations of Life Itself… the caring for each and other. It is time that “Unity” reawakens and comes back to life within our homes, communities, states or regions, nations… and Humanity as a whole.There is no “War” going on! There is a powerful and occult mind-game going on that is forcing one against other! All of us can win that “game” by only … sto playing it and uniting!

    Having spent a couple hours checking all the videos: wrong info put out by chief; 2 snipers on high, the only video of a subject shooting/receiving fire he is on the ground. This guy had no overwatch/sniper covering him. A couple of the other “arrested” were clearly not involved. One dead shooter, he may have been the only one shooting cops. From on high he should have killed for more as few bystanders were hit (and those may have been hit by cops) and there were plenty of targets as more cops came to area. Several “witnesses” stated the shooter was at ground level. Looks like most cops hit within first couple minutes. If more than one shooter more cops should have been shot at midway point. I say lone wolf shooter, good shot but not a “sniper”, no secondary kill zone. I would say non-military shooter, he didn’t cut the pie, start out at best position (on high), had no tactical gear, no defense in depth or assault in earnest to get in among the targets. He was committed but not well trained.

  11. “If you think that the American people can somehow win in a war against the military industrial complex that the US has built up in the last decade and a half, you are seriously delusional.”

The Taliban control as much of Afghanistan now as they did before the 2001 invasion, yet here you are spewing this idiocy about the supposed invincibility of the military industrial complex here. They haven’t won a war since World War II but they will win a war against 100 million armed Americans?

    Until everyone realizes that what happened in Dallas and other cities is exactly what the Left wants, Anarchist’s will continue these atrocities. The Cops aren’t our enemies, regardless what the media spins. Say what you will, but, 99.9% of Cops are not bad!

    • So how come they cannot control and arrest the 0.1% that you say are bad?

    This is part of the Obama plan to cause widespread violence,shut down the conventions and declare martial law to prevent the election of Donald Trump. Don’t fall for the divide and conquer. This is the gov and their agent provocateurs doing this stuff to destabilize the country. This isn’t the people murdering these officers Agorist! The people behind this are your former employers.

    • Any evidence to back up your statements? Yes, divide and conquer strategies work and are well used. I’ve seen some evidence to support that anti-Trump protesters were paid. I’ve seen evidence that counter intelligence (FBI, CIA, NSA) agents were paid to disrupt peaceful protests. We’ve had a number of violent confrontations capturing the division and hatred between Americans. Has there been any evidence showing this is paid for, mind controlled or otherwise directed. Please share.

    Well ! why don’t we just line up and lick their boots chicken little? We have let this monster get out of control by letting the elected and appointed official get away with violating their oath of office and letting treason slide. Now after Comey’s performance , the people hear that the law breakers are just going to run over whomever gets in their way and just damn the Constitution. Sorry folks, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. When the time was available and the means to get rid of tyranny, the damned football games and toys kept you preoccupied (Bread and Circuses). The women have been bamboozled through their emotions and the men are castrated shells especially on the Statist side of the isle. Boobus Americanus is getting a rude awakening just as Boobus Europanus is. Since when does six cops equal 560 citizens this year yet ?
    How about some more DHS training to finish scaring crap out of the hapless local law enforcement where they can barely pull a gun without firing it on someone OR need tanks and military gear to serve DUI no show warrants? Enough of this S-it now! Clean out the out of control elements at the Federal and local level and render due penalties to ALL people of position that have knowingly or unknowingly violated the Constitution and/or their oath of office. No exceptions. With the polarization of the population that exist now , what happened in Dallas can be child’s play.

      Herman, you say: “Clean out the out of control elements at the Federal and local level and render due penalties to ALL people of position that have knowingly or unknowingly violated the Constitution and/or their oath of office. No exceptions.” Later you incidentally mention cats.

      We get this “Throw the Fat Cats out!” rhetoric a lot, and those of us who remember our fairy tales are inevitably reminded of the one about the Council of Mice, deciding to put a bell on the Cat, so it can’t keep sneaking up and pouncing on them. Unanimous agreement attends this excellent idea, till they get to the sticky part: “Who among us is going to bell the Cat?”

      Unfortunately, as it turns out, all present had prior commitments. The story doesn’t explicitly say, but I’m guessing if the Cat ever does get belled it only happens when a sufficient number of Mice realize for whom the bell actually tolls: every single one of them.

    this is all planned to bring further destruction upon the usa. kind of a puzzle piece leading up to the ‘solutions’ which the NWO has prepared.

  22. It is definitely a war…the cops have become a huge unionized street gang, and very dangerous to the law abiding public they are supposed to serve and protect.. the cops have become very macho, and obviously watch too much TV and movies of themselves..they do not know the law, probable causeor anythng, it’s al macho gun play to them…maybe incidents like this, will start them on the path to correcting their behavious.

    • Nope, incidents like Dallas will cause the police to become 1000 times worse, and that is the point of this article.

  23. the US POLICE FORCE are already the worlds worse, how much more can they be

    • Gee, Arlene, that just isn’t true, and they could be a lot worse, which is what this article is trying to say. If the police believe they are “being attacked”, and after this morning’s new news about Missouri and Georgia attacks on police, things will radically shift in the US, and I’m surprised someone as smart as you can’t foresee that.

        What are you talking about ? They are the worse by a mile !
        In China a country with 1.4 billion people recorded 12 killings by police
        Germany ZERO
        Canada 14 ( 2014 )
        England 1 ( 2014 )
        Australia 1 ( 2014 )

        Willful ignorance IS UNETHICAL ….

        • Iceland also is pretty peaceful. But just selecting a few countries with low cop killings and listing a few is very uncompelling.
          Maybe you need to look into some Middle eastern, south American, Asian or African countries, Thailand, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Mexico.
          By far not the worst, but way over an acceptable level.

          • Smart, and check out 4 countries in Africa where gays are arrested, torture and imprisoned or just killed by the police for being gay. The list of atrocities goes on and on.

        • The official records for China in 2014 claim only 12 killed by police? Let’s look at the last years that United Nations observers were allowed into China to investigate their human rights abuses (2003-2004). In 2003, the Chinese admitted their police killed 460 civilians, but the Chinese engaged in immediate executions, meaning no trial or other due process, to kill another 10,000 people. In fact, the Chinese have admitted that they execute at least 5000 people/year, and as many as 12,000/year. You see, Sarah, whether the civilians are shot down in cold blood, or, arrested and then immediately executed by the State, without any due process or trial, that means that China is killing thousands of its own people every year. That is the reality. Those are the facts and your assertions above are on the level of fraud. The United Nations found that torture in China was widespread, and that hundreds of civilians/year died under torture. Most of the torture is very specific and intended to result in the death of the person being tortured. China has 700 prisons for adults that house over 1.5 million persons, under harsh conditions, and all prisoners must work. More organs for organ transfers originate in China than anywhere else, and most of those are coming from the thousands executed every year. Is it willful ignorance that you have no working knowledge of China and its human rights records? Let’s not even touch upon the millions and millions of Chinese murdered during the 10 years after its conversion to Communism under Mao in 1959. Now, the truth about China, so different from what you claim, still doesn’t entitle American law enforcement to engage in the abuse and misuse of their official power. We must work to prevent this.

  24. First, who benefits from peaceful protests all of a sudden turning bloody? Who benefits by dividing into firmer lines against each other between the people and those who serve the people as law enforcement? What are the things that this action here can cause to further the destruction of the USA, putting it further into a One World Government?

    If you think the PTB will not murder law enforcement, military, and the general populace to further destroy our nation from within, you are not thinking or paying attention.

    I will bet when the dust has settled, when it is REALLY investigated that it will be found as the others previous actions such as this have been, committed by paid “protestors”, paid provocateurs, mercenaries to cause further “battle” lines to be drawn between the people and law enforcement, between races, between other divisions that can be used against us. I would not be surprised to find out that within the LE community itself will be found some of those who fired upon their own, along with outside assistance.

    What needs to be done is instead of turning all of us against each other by ever dividing means they can use, we start erasing those lines and defend each other, because when they can no longer get Americans to destroy each other over CAUSED “internal divisions” be it “race”, LE vs people, etc then the real fight will come to finish off those of us left.

    Stand for America, stand for the US Constitution and your state Constitution, stand for Americans whoever you are, whatever position you occupy, because if we do not stand against this, we all will fall. If we do not recognize that this is deliberately brought about to divide and conquer us we have already lost.

    Looks more like a photo op – all the cops behind the wall are concerned about what?
    While the other two cops (with rifles) are not, the two of them seem to be simply observing.
    The 4th cop from the left appears to be holding an orange squirt gun.
    The lit up bank of the antichrist sign would hinder their view and possibly give away their position.
    I’m sure this whole thing was supported by the HillBillary gold collar scum crowd.

  26. Some people mistakenly believe that just because the police have been militarized and the government is at war against the people, that the people can return fire. They are wrong.
    People in the U.S. don’t even have the right to defend themselves from being beat to death by the police.
    The immutable U.S. Bill of Rights was overthrown by the “patriot” act, recent NDAA, the “freedom” act, and the most recent budget.
    The immutable U.S. Bill of Rights was the guarantee that kept the Constitution for the United States of America into effect.
    Without a U.S. Constitution, the U.S.A. no longer exists.

  27. f you seriously, f you after all they have done. long overdue

  28. Lets be clear…since hippies were getting their skulls knocked in in the 60s, we have tried (in EARNEST we’ve tried) to change the system…through protest (both peaceful and otherwise), through education, through the courts…all in vain. The fact of the matter is the system is designed to resist change both from without and within. I think we’ve tallied enough usurpations by this point to call on the Declaration of Independance (and backed buy the 2nd amendment) as evidence and reason that the time has come to abolish the old (through force) in institute new protections for the people.

    I believe quarter must and should be given. That they be given the oppprtunity to surrended their arms and badges, and allowed to go home to their families if theu choose. That we must demonstrate unto them the mercy they have refused us time and again, to prove unequivocably that we are the better men (and women). Because we are.

    • Three problems:
      1. You are too violent. Peaceful means should be used like the courts to lock them up.
      2. You are too forgiving. Lock them up for the rest of their lives.
      3. “and backed purchase the 2nd amendment)” makes no sense.

      • 1. When non-violent means fail to produce results, violence is what’s left. This is what is required. We’ve been trying to use the courts for over 50 years now, they own the courts.
        2. Locking people up is a tremendous drain on resources and a huge strain on society from a philisophical standpoint. It’s just wrong. Disband the police and let them go home. Those that choose to fight, have made their choice.
        3. What on earth are you talking about? Thats not what’s posted at all. Suggest you read again.

        • 1. Using violence makes you as bad as our masters.
          2. Release people that did not cause injury to person or property and most prison beds would be empty. Perfect for traitors in Washington and other government criminals. We would still be prison beds to spare.
          3. That is what you said. Can’t you read your own post. Well, neither can anyone else. Even if they could read it, few would purchase or buuuy it. Good-bye.

          • letmepicyou | July 12, 2016 at 9:20 pm |

            1. So the folks that fought for our independence were as bad as their masters…Mr. Washington was certainly glad he didn’t have cowards such as you serving in his army. We would still be knealing to the crown. Makes me wonder who, exactly, you work for in that you find the need to attempt to shape public opinion in such a manner.
            2. By and large, most prison beds SHOULD be empty, Mr. Tyrant. News flash, genius, the U.S. imprisons a greater percentage of its citizens than ANY other nation on earth. THERE IS A PROBLEM THERE. “Land of the free” must be a slogan for you. It’s something I would like to see become a reality and not a catch phrase. Once again, who do you work for that you support keeping non-violent people in prison?
            3. The word “purchase” was never typed. It’s easy to pounce on one grammatical error in 500 words, isn’t it? Pedant much, there, or do you have the intellectual version of a Napoleon complex going? I’ve corrected the error in question…just for YOU! Smile and feel special now.

          • 1. Returning fire is defending yourself, your rights, and your property.
            Arresting traitors, thieves, and killers is protecting yourself, your rights, and your property.
            Ambushing cops without a specific reason or trial when outside of war is murder.
            Me understanding the sentiment does not stop it from being murder.
            Government repeatedly committing murder is what we should fight against, not copy.
            2. The beds should be used for real criminals, not for people that have not caused injury to person or property.
            Most of the U.S. Congress voted to overthrow the U.S. Bill of Rights with the “patriot” act, recent NDAA, the “freedom” act, and the most recent budget.
            That is treason that causes injury to us all and should give most Congress members a permanent bed in prison.
            The TSA is a 4th amendment violation. Everyone in it should get a permanent bed.
            Cops that stop motorist when there was no injury to person or property also are violating the 4th amendment should get a permanent bed.. That includes stopping and issuing tickets for the precrimes of speeding, DUI, and DUI checkpoints.
            Local people that force poison but call it force medicate by putting fluoride in our water, force non-therapeutic vaccines on our children, arrest people without injury to person or property, and require permits, licenses, and certifications for us to carry on normal life, liberty, and pursuit of interests should get a permanent bed.
            If we lock up the real criminals, the U.S. could start to switch to be a free country and be much more prosperous because of individual rights.

          • letmepicyou | July 13, 2016 at 3:55 am |

            On many points (such as tsa, patriot act, et al, we agree on. At the end of the day, our “elected officials”…aren’t. They’re puppets. Putting them in prison amounts to very little. We need to get rid of the puppet masters (Israel, for one) before anything will matter.

          • Your proposed random murders have escalated to getting rid of random countries.
            You are no better than the people that usurped our government.
            Arrest, fair trial, and sentencing each for several thousand years is better.

    “Prior to 9-11 the TSA did not exist, indefinite detention did not exist, the NSA did not spy on American citizens, the police weren’t given armored assault vehicles, and Americans could not be assassinated without trial.”

    This is very true, Matt, best part of your article. Not long after 9/11, when I was pointing out the problems with the official story to friends and close relatives I was told, hey, fuggeddaboudit, it’s old news. Even if it was a put up job there’s nothing you can do about it. But owing to many people’s willingness to just “let it go,” we have everything you’ve mentioned, and more which you did not. But unfortunately you go on to assert:

    “The police state didn’t suddenly pop up overnight. It’s a product of society. More accurately, it’s a symptom of a sick society that we are all complicit in creating.”
    Uh, wrong, Matt. I did not comply, I did not make society sick. I know many who also did not, you did not. Police states DO “suddenly pop up overnight,” and they do it with alarming frequency throughout history. All it takes is one or two intelligent psychopaths, a following of sociopathic minions and, as you’ve said, weapons. And the only thing which has ever stopped them is force. Not reason, not prayer, not public awareness based on photos (I doubt anyone on Capitol Hill or in the Pentagon lost much sleep over the Kent State shooting), not petitions and pleas for justice, not voting. Force.

    It would be great if such force could be effectively employed against only the evil-doers. That’s not going to happen for all too many obvious reasons. You worry that things may get ugly? Things already are ugly. This is a fight which was and is being brought to our doorstep every single day. An enormous amount of noble, peaceful work has been and is being done…and I’m afraid it’s far too little, far too late.

  30. Barry would probably like that!

  31. An American insurgency can stop the GOVT that’s why Gun ownership is so important. They wouldn’t be trying so desperately to take away weapons if they were not afraid of them.

  32. Guns are NOT the problem an overbearing state and criminal subculture are.

      ..You got it back to front, Mate… even your President knows that…

      • Obozo is a joke. A puppet for the globalists and he goes along with it like the good “yes” man he is. President doesn’t know SH** he does what he is told.
        As I said Guns are not the problem, America wont be America if its citizens are not armed.
