Breaking Through

Breaking Through

Lenin asked, “What is to be done?”

The question facing liberty minded people almost 100 years later
is the same.

But our answer should not be Lenin’s answer, violent lashing out.

I get e-mails from readers who are frustrated, rightly, about the
state of things.

About how Ron Paul was treated by the GOP apparat. About the
seemingly relentless increase in (and brazenness of) state thuggery.

They ask, “when do we do something?” “How much more do we

And most of all: “What is the point of just bitching about things?”

Some urge action, taking the proverbial stand.

But just as the time for action (physical action) had not yet come
for our forefathers circa 1770, so also the time has not yet come
for us.

The issue, then as now, is whether intellectual action is to be
preferred over (and as the necessary prelude to) physical action.

Whether we as isolated individuals, go out in the proverbial and
pointless blaze of glory, or, whether we bide our time while we
work to increase the number of people who get it and thereby,
increase the number of people who are on our side, such that if
it becomes necessary to act, we will not be acting alone, and
not acting suicidally.

As in the 1770s, opponent of the current status quo have to have
that critical mass of like-minded people on our side before we
can hope for change we can believe in. Otherwise, we are just
tilting at windmills.

We risk losing everything, to gain nothing.

No one can say for sure what the critical mass percentages are,
but 20 percent seems about right to me. Five percent won’t do
it. Ten percent might be sufficient.

But we’re not going to get anywhere until enough people share
our views and far more importantly, reject the views that have
led us to the current state of things.

And the only way to achieve that is by talking and writing about
things from a liberty-minded perspective.

Bear in mind that the vast majority of people operate unconsciously
on the implicit assumptions of collectivism and authoritarianism,
because that’s all they’ve been exposed to since childhood.

It is all they know.

The state has been monstrously effective in programming people
or rather, log jamming their brains with statist preconceptions
they never even think to question.

Because they’ve been systematically brain-raped into not
questioning anything.

Many of these people cannot be reached. They’re either
too far gone, or simply too invested in the system as it is.

But there are millions of people who can be reached. In
particular, young people.

Think on this a moment.

Never before (not in modern or even recent history) have so
many young people been anti-collectivist.

The hippies of the 1960s were exactly the opposite in terms
of the premises they accepted.

Though they preached peace and love, they worshipped the
collective. And thus, authority. Charles Manson was no
aberration. He merely took things to their logical conclusion.

As also Hillary and Bill and that entire generation or most of it.

Their, “help” their, “brotherhood of humanity” always flows from
the barrel of a gun. Today’s liberty-minded youth are not like this.

They embrace individual liberty and loathe the collective. They
want to be left the hell alone, to work and live on a cooperative
and voluntary basis and not at gunpoint for the “greater good.”

They sniff the stink of BS when they hear talk of, “safety” and,
“security” and that it’s all for, “our own good.”

It is a magnificent thing to behold.

For these liberty yearning young people most of them just
kids when the trrr attacks of nahnleven took place and the
American police state took the place of America, have no
personal recollection of the even semi-free America that
their parents and older brothers and sisters experienced.

Unlike Gen Xers or Baby Boomers, today’s 20 something's grew
up in a miasma of authoritarianism from childhood on trapped
like pint-sized Hannibal Lecters into, “safety” seats and fed
Ritalin and hectored to, "Submit and Obey" to an extent
literally inconceivable to people who grew up before.

Yet millions of these kids somehow have groped their way to
ideas not current or even common for the past 75 years or more.

They are sick and tired of being told what to do and much
more critically, have no interest in telling others what to do.

It is nothing less than a miracle.

And: How many liberty-minded web sites are there now?
The count must run into the hundreds if not the thousands.
Several of them have huge audiences.

Lew Rockwell, for instance. Alex Jones. Even this little corner
of the Net (we are approaching 100,000 visits per month).

The, “alternative” press is growing with each month exponentially
so. Just as happened more than 220 years ago.

The mouthpieces of the collective, the propaganda organs of the
state, are being ignored into irrelevance.

They have no credibility. They are dying. Because they are part of
a dying order.

They have reached the terminal stage of Pravda during the late
Brezhnev years. An ossified joke. A decrepit mummy farting dust.

I think the powers that be are terrified. They see the great
awakening that’s taking place.

It is no coincidence, in my view, that they have escalated to the
point they have. Because they see they are living on borrowed

The initiative has passed to us. Our ideas are gaining traction. We
are winning. And without suicidal charges onto the ramparts.

So, have faith. As the Catholics put it, "Sursum Corda" lift up your

The day is coming. And it’s not decades off. Most of us now alive
will live to see it. They know this. And it’s why they’re scared.

We need not be.

Just, be patient.
