In simplistic terms, the strategy entails manufacturing a crisis and then implementing a solution that actually makes the crisis much worse and moreover, makes implementation of a real solution to the crisis next to impossible; and every solution to the crisis must invariably entail purposefully overwhelming federal government programs in an effort to cause those programs and the federal government to implode under its own weight.
They succeeded. The collapse is already under way.
Most people don't see it, or don't want to see it, but the math doesn't lie. It is now literally impossible for us to climb out of the hole that generations of Collectivist insanity have dug us into. We are now at the beginning of the collapse. Others have recognized this, in particular commenter HempRopeAndStreetlight at the domain of The Wise And Enlightened His Royal Majestic Graciousness Emperor Misha I May He Live For Ten Thousand Years. Go read the whole thing and I'll be here when you get back...
In political terms, this “Leviathan” is for all intents and purposes untouchable – short of a complete socioeconomic collapse of our society. No politician -or even coalition of politicians – has the power to do away with them, and this is by deliberate design. The beast is so entrenched in public, private, and corporate America – and has bribed the willing support of so much of the sheeple and crony corporatists – that, to be blunt, any talk of somehow trimming it down is fiction. It’s a pleasant flight of fancy to be sure, and boy it sure would be great if liberty foolishly tossed aside could be won so effortlessly.
So, what do we do?
We accept God's judgment.
Now, I know this is going to sound a bit apocalyptic to my non-believing readers, but hear me out with an open mind. The United States was conceived in Rightful Liberty. We were a nation of righteous, honorable, decent, hard-working, civilized people. We respected truth and shunned liars. We put our faith in God, not men. We worked for what we had and imprisoned those who would steal. We helped the legitimately unfortunate and had no tolerance for parasites. We laid down a foundation of laws--the Constitution--and demanded that all men abide by them. When we did these things, when we were these people, our nation prospered. Ergo, these things were pleasing to God. That was the USA. Was.
Now, this country is self-absorbed, egotistical, hedonistic, entitlement-minded, lazy and willfully ignorant. "A nation of laws, not men" has become a nation of anarchy, where laws are ignored and enforced according to personal and political cronyism. These are things offensive to God, and pleasing to Satan. This explains why things are going to Hell in this country. The USA has become the USSA--the United Satanic States of America.
God has apparently mellowed out over the past few millennia. He's not likely to rain fire and brimstone on us(well, maybe on Washington DC, one can hope). He's set it up so that turning from righteousness will bring destruction upon us automatically, and that's what we've done. Even those of us who try to be decent people are to blame. We have allowed this collections of fools, maniacs and possible demons to infest our entertainment industry, our information industry, or schools and our government. We didn't do enough. We woke up too late. And now, the entirely predictable consequences of our actions are upon us.
So be it. Remember, the collapse will not destroy the USA. That country is long dead. The collapse will destroy the USSA, as well it should. As I've said, we're already in the beginning stages. The middle is really going to suck--for how long, there's no telling. But eventually, it will end.
Well, that's what we have to prepare for(you did read the linked post, right?):
Carefully consider everything you’d need care for your family if the infrastructure in this nation takes a shit. Don’t assume you’ll get water if you turn on the facet, power when you flip on the lights, or gas when you trip the furnace/stove. Think about how you can cope without toilets in a sustainable and comfortable way. Then act on those plans. You can’t pursue revolutionary goals if you can’t first deal with your loved one’s daily living.Communists and collectivists of every stripe, love that whole Cloward-Piven idea. They figure that when it all falls apart, they're going to step right in there and take over. This isn't inconceivable, necessarily, but remember that these folks are--and have always been--entirely ignorant of the Law of Unintended Consequences.
Once you have those needs taken care of, start moving outside your blood circle. Networking with friends and acquaintances that have useful skills. Not just military knowledge – electricians, carpenters, plumbers, metal-workers, glass men, farmers, ranchers. You need to start going AROUND the government and it’s goons. Stop using them as an intermediary. (And given the state of affairs, the large companies ad FedGovCo are one in the same).
Barter with these folks where possible – you hurt Fedgov on both sides of the transaction, and right now, our weapons are NOT 5.56, but greenbacks, skirting laws and tax evasion. Form good relationships with the people that keep things running folks – not only do you learn a great deal of useful intelligence, you are making friends who when “scofflaw turns to insurgent” might be inclined to play a role in the axillary.
On their side, they have a few wannabe tinpot dictators, and a whole army of...what? Spoiled, self-absorbed, hopelessly dependent, brainwashed idiots. These people can't think for themselves, they can't do anything for themselves, they can't stand up for anything unless they're backed up by a mob. If the local Starbuck's is closed, or their internet goes down, they consider it a crisis of Earth-shattering magnitude. They're completely and utterly helpless. They're cannon fodder.
On our side? Veterans, hunters, tradesmen, farmers and other hard-working, self-reliant, independent thinkers. We know how to build things, how to fix things, how to obtain food, and how to learn new skills. We stand for the Truth, regardless of popularity. And we have lots and lots of guns, and we know how to use them. Who's going to take over, again?
We need to prepare for not just the collapse, but the end of the collapse, when we will have to come out fighting. That may be our only chance to restore the true USA, a nation that once again recognizes all forms of collectivism as the insane, demonic lie that they've always been. To return to our "One nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all," with the benefit of learning from our past mistakes. To give Rightful Liberty a new beginning, that its light should not perish from the Earth.
Through the fire, and out the other side. That's the only way I see it happening.
