The world needs citizen warriors.
I’m talking about the average, ordinary, everyday folks you see on your way to work, at the grocery store, or wherever they might be, but who are more than capable of taking bad people down a peg or two.
We need more folks like that. Desperately.
Yes. Yes we do. And why is that? Because if we had more citizen warriors, if we had more people who actually understood violence, the causes of it, the repercussions of it, we might be able to head off Civil War v.2.
So what gives? Why hasn’t it started yet? I was discussing this with a personal friend yesterday, a veteran, MMA fighter, and all-around guy you don’t want to fuck with. He is the sort of man that, were the war to start tomorrow, would be on the front lines. He expressed to me his fear, not for himself, but for his wife, his children, and the end of a relatively prosperous life. For even if he survived the conflict, he mused, life would never be the same.
Veterans are largely Rightists, and Leftists are largely pussies who have spent their lives avoiding any kind of real physical risk. So the Right has a much better sense for what a war within our borders would really look like. The Left, as Francis notes in the following quote, has no idea because they have not suffered consequences for this behavior up until now.The Left wants Civil War because they have no idea what actual war is. The Right does NOT want Civil War because we have an actual idea of what war is, and what comes afterwards. But as Thales points out:
However, at some point Leftist derangement will exceed the Rightist’s reluctance to resort to violence. And when that Rubicon is crossed, there is no going back. Leftists are quicker to violence, but Rightists are far better at it. The consequences of this will be grave.
And it stems from the Left's inability to argue rationally. Their emotionally-driven rhetoric cannot and will not allow them to process facts logically. Therefore, everything becomes an emotional assault by bad people.
The key to the thing, once again, is in the Left’s characterization of normal Americans as either stupid or evil.As time has passed, their preference has been revealed: to gain the ends they seek, they need to see us as evil. They mean well; we don’t. That’s where their “analysis” ends.
There’s no reasoning with one who considers you evil. There’s certainly no compromising with him. He’s out to destroy you. He’ll take whatever opportunity you offer to slip the dirk between your fourth and fifth ribs and twist it. Nor is there any way for you to convince him that you’re not evil. He assumes a priori that everything you say is ultimately aimed at his destruction.
At that point it becomes war to the knife.
We haven’t yet seen violence with actual casualties. But we will.
Buy more ammo. Go to the range. What is coming will not be pleasant, and I don't think it can be avoided.
