Fresh Air

 

 

 

 

     We as a Movement have been focusing on distant and illusive threats for too long. While Our focus has been misaligned We failed to create the entity the American People needed Us to be.

 

      We offer no resistance to Our fellow countryman being attacked, their privacy invaded , or being unnecessarily deprived of Rights. We offer no resistance because We have no organized resistance to offer. The outbursts advocating a violent reactionary response isn't resistance. When an immediate solution is violence it shows organizational weakness. A competent movement should have several responses available prior to physical action being considered.

      We have failed to produce a Vocal. Political, or Organized Social Response.

 

     Our negligence has caused our numbers to dwindle, and Our cause to Weaken. The Militia has become a distant memory of its Original Self. We have faltered in maintaining Liberty for All. Volatile times has once again caused Our size to grow. Positive growth doesn't dissolve Our responsibility to address and resolve Our previous deficiencies.

 

     We need to return to Our Noble path. We are America's body and Her last Defense. Liberty is a fragile flame that needs consistent attention.

 

     To correct Our shortcomings We need to organize, and create a Movement that is Fair and Firm. A true deterrent to infringement against Our fellow citizens is a Organized United movement. If a Governing Body was actively objected to by an Organized movement with a just grievance they would be reluctant to pressure a reactionary showdown.

 

      Our ability to address Our Movements shortcomings will determine Our future, and possibly the future of the ideas of individual Rights.

 

     Right now. We can Organize. We can Recruit. We can Teach one another. We can reestablish Ourselves with Our cause. We can't erase yesterdays mistakes, but We can create a Movement that gains momentum.

 

We can right the course and become worthy of the title America's First and Last Guardian once again.

Okay, I agree... but you sound like most politicians:  "We can't let this stand.  We have to come together to confront this challenge.  Everyone needs to become aware and take part in the great struggle."

 

What exactly...and I'm talking specifics here, should the Militia do to become "relevant" again???  I agree with you 100% that we, as Militia, need a range of options/actions available in our toolbox... what should they be?  How should we go about creating and using those tools?

 

At this point, I feel compelled to mention that "local militias" can be found: By parent organization (Sons of Liberty, III%), , By city, county and state: ICVM, IVM (as examples for IND.state-wide orgs.) etc.  By telephone Area Code.  .... which all serve to segment and divide us rather than unify us.  I understand some of these "divisions" were created to assist in making it easier to locate a unit to join, but, I can' help but think there's a bit of self-aggrandizement here as well as some distinct philosophical ideas.

 

I await your reply, sir.

Well There is only a certain number of way of requesting things, and a call to cause will likely sound very similar.

I have some more specific posts coming about this later. As this was an introduction article accepting the point of where we currently are which was intended to generate this line of thinking.

In short there's several schisms within our movement  that have overtaken the overlapping  objectives between a majority. 

We as a whole need to start returning to Our original goals being our navigation. 

Examples some of the goals.

  •   In order to never be forcibly levied into subjection for protection. The is militia  an essential part in having some sort of ability to achieve this.  
  • Being a deterrent to oppression.

Unfortunately There's a lot to unpack , and there's not one liner solution to Our complex problem. I'm slowing working through addressing this more in depth.

   Complex problem.  In a perfect scenario the movement should be able to muster several responses ranging from Legal to Social campaigns.

Size and connectivity limit these available solutions. For example  I can pen a legitimate objection to specific actions, but if i fail to have any support I have no  true authority to levy an objection.

Militia's and parent organizations are easily found but the actual size of isn't increasing. It's decreasing in the overall market share of Idea's. These divisions or various militia's connected to very unique beliefs  do create a competition to dominate the space available  rather than increasing the overall space held.

Which leads No organization needing  to action against the movement because it will fizzle out over the next generation naturally.

I'm unsure how to accurately answer the rest of this question without further elaboration.

To what are you attributing this statement to? The Division's of militia, or the Article itself?

Bear with me as I certainly don't have all the answers and I too am trying to work all this out.

I believe you raise some valid questions, ones that were posted to this site about 1 1/2 years ago by another. I know this may sound like a trite answer but a lot of the problem is simply apathy; by and large American's are fat and happy and unwilling to do the hard work. I was once in that category myself some two and a half decades past. In a nation were the norm is 2 parents working, kids spoon fed drivel in the public school (government indoctrination centers), bills to pay, and whoreporate media that tells them what to think, what to desire, and what it is to be " successful", unless someone is woken up they'll continue down that path.

Second and part and parcel to the above, the militia has been painted as racists, nazis, anti- government, backwards, and violent. Until there is an honest and fair media in this country expect the same.

Third, a lack of commitment. It is hard to get people out once a month for training but they'll spend hundreds of dollars and many weekends watching over paid men & women in costumes play with a ball. The quote from Caesar about bread and circuses comes to mind here.

Fourth, people suffer from cognitive dissonance. It is on full display right now with the virus. Whatever your opinion on it, you can witness people who are a) buying like crazy, often food they won't eat, b) buying toilet paper for an illness that doesn't have your arse welded to a toilet seat, c) people walking the stores in shellshock, d) the most troubling in my mind- a willingness to give up their rights at the drop of a hat for some promise of illusory safety. I see the latter in my family with a cry of " the greater good". This greater good will likely thrust tens of millions of our countrymen into deep poverty that they'll probably never rise above.

I would love to see a more cohesive and unified voice for the militia. The only media I can think of that would give us positive coverage is Infowars and I'm not 100% sure on that.

My comment about philosophical divides and personal issues was directed primarily at the various militias and to a lesser extent, their leadership: not at your remarks.
