(Continued from Part 1. This concludes the article.)
As I stated in Part I, I favor massive non-compliance at every level possible without landing myself in jail. This approach calls for the “Gray Man”, “Going Galt”, and true to my heritage, “Irish democracy”. The important characteristics of such intent is to not organize, to not be heard or seen, and to not seek to massively disrupt the status quo. It’s all underground, under the surface, like small tremors that can’t be attributed to a particular earthquake fault line or dormant volcano. Think of it, if you will, as undiscovered termites or carpenter ants chomping away on a wooden house. The wooden house being our severely corrupted government, that without remedy will fail, collapse under the weight of it’s own rottenness.
First, what do I mean by “massive noncompliance”? I personally do not wish to run afoul of law enforcement or the Internal Revenue Service, so I choose my battles wisely. Knowing, that law enforcement has not always played fairly (reference Ruby Ridge, Waco, Bundy Ranch, Robert LaVoy Finicum, and so many others). Neither has the IRS played fairly (reference Becky Gerritson, a founder of the Wetumpka Tea Party in Alabama, and Lois Lerner of the IRS, and so many more). Don’t get me started on “eminent domain” and “asset forfeiture” and the “Environmental Protection(not!) Agency”, etc. Many of our federal and state agencies have entirely too much power. The idea of “innocent until proven guilty”, “due process”, and even the “Bill of Rights” don’t seem to apply anymore. Or, they do apply, but only for certain people. For instance, if you are a Mexican cartel member drug running in California, and you get pulled over and arrested by the California Highway Patrol, don’t worry! The local District Attorney will get you released immediately so you can get back to business. Why do the Mexican cartels have favored status in California? I’m asking, for some friends.
I will, of course, always, shoot in self-defense to protect myself, my property, and my family, but I’m not going looking for trouble from any of these entities. And yes, I realize how that may turn out – another topic for another day. This article is not calling for an “armed insurrection” as Congress and the Department of Justice(not!) like to refer to any American who owns guns and discusses how to restore the Republic. After listening to the FIB, oops I mean, FBI Director Christopher Wray testify before Congress, I find our situation humorous, sad, and insane, that we have reached this point. But we have, and here we are.
Let’s not forget the Tech Oligarchs and the Marxists, who will censor you, ban you, de-platform you, cancel you, harass you, and throw Molotov cocktails or bricks through the windows of your home or business if they suspect you favor freedom, are a Christian, or in any way have a difference of opinion. However, this group doesn’t bother me as much as it should, because I can avoid them like the plague. What I can’t avoid is anything that has the backing of a federal agency with unlimited funds (Department of Transportation, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Justice(not!), Department of Treasury, etc…)
What can I, a little old woman, do to stand up and fight back? I’m not a big dude with lots of guns who runs in a secret militia filled with every type of skill you could need when TEOTWAWKI arrives. No. Just a regular American, with varied skills, knowledge, and stubborn as heck. I’m guessing there are a lot of us. I’m guessing there are over 100 million of us, maybe more. I’m guessing that most Americans just want to be left alone to live their best lives. I’m guessing we outnumber The Powers That Be (TPTB), and can outthink them, in tremendous ways. This is why censorship is so huge. They don’t want us to be able to communicate with one another and realize just how powerful we are. They want us to shut up and sit down and deal with it. But, just in case we do realize, they’ve put up walls around the Capitol Complex complete with concertina wire, just in case we get any ideas! They are so deluded.
Let’s get on with the strategy then! A definition:
“Quiet, anonymous, and often complicitous, lawbreaking and disobedience may well be the historically preferred mode of political action for peasant and subaltern classes, for whom open defiance is too dangerous….One need not have an actual conspiracy to achieve the practical effects of a conspiracy. More regimes have been brought, piecemeal, to their knees by what was once called “Irish Democracy”—the silent, dogged resistance, withdrawal, and truculence of millions of ordinary people—than by revolutionary vanguards or rioting mobs.” – James C. Scott, Two Cheers For Anarchism
Wait! I thought you said you weren’t interested in breaking the law? Ah-ha! No, what I said was: I’m not interested in running afoul of it. Hang on, we’ll get to it. And as an aside, right here, I will say that part of our problem in America, and especially for true Christians, conservatives, pacifists, and all manner of peace-loving people, we’ve been spoiled by the fact that after the Civil War, most of our wars were fought elsewhere with the exceptions of 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. We don’t know what it’s like to fight for survival on our home turf. Let’s get that concept through our thick skulls – this is about fighting for our very survival, like many of our brothers and sisters in other countries. It’s not about politics, religion, race, and not even, about “gender” – because whomever TPTB come after today, they will come after the next group tomorrow. We’re all in this together. They’ve worked really hard at dividing us all up into little groups and pitting us against one another. We must acknowledge the pitting as a tactic of theirs and refuse it altogether. So what if your neighbor is a… Pick-A-Race, Pick-A-Religion, Pick-An-Orientation. It does not matter in this fight. Some will disagree and say “we must be among like-minded people!”, and I agree with that. But, for this fight, like-mindedness is about Freedom, and let God judge the rest. Off soapbox and moving on.
There are a few others out there in the blogosphere that had the same ideas that I’m having, even years ago. This article from 2012 really summed up my sentiments. An excerpt:
“Must this be the default response to an ever-growing federal government unbound from any meaningful Constitutional limits, metastasizing and increasingly contemptuous of any law deemed inconvenient to the ruling political classes?”
And more recently, from The Burning Platform, an excellent opinion piece that lays out our plight quite clearly and urges, in a sense, “Irish Democracy” as our only protection mechanism of choice. Some excerpts regarding the stolen election, Mike Pence’s failure, the January 6th insanity, and where we find ourselves now:
“What Abraham Lincoln foresaw, worried Woodrow Wilson, of which Dwight Eisenhower warned, that killed John F. Kennedy and finally made Donald J. Trump irrelevant as the U.S. Constitution was irredeemably made null and void.”
“If it were possible, I would pray for their guilt to consume them; like fires fading and dying in the dark.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle.
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
– William Shakespeare, “Macbeth” , Act 5, scene 5, lines 16–27.”
And from Cold Fury, an excerpt:
“Revolution is not an event; it’s a process. Although it might feel in certain times and circumstances as if a violent uprising is imminent, I don’t think its hot breath is on American necks just yet. From the long-view vantage point of the historical record, revolutions and civil wars are a long time a-brewing before coming to full boil, although we often come to perceive things differently in hindsight.” And:
“There’s no denying that sufficient provocation has been inflicted on Real Americans to ignite a real conflagration, particularly over the past year. Likewise is there no credible argument to be made that the current federal Leviathan is even remotely in accord with the principles set down in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. It’s probably the most dead-cert truthful bumper sticker slogan there ever was: the Founders would have been shooting already.”
Another fine article from Bastion Of Liberty that describes our plight, written January 2nd, before the steal. An excerpt:
“Removing the overt confrontations makes “Irish Democracy” much safer than any other form of rebellion. The State needs conspicuous, targetable rebels. It cannot use terror of its forces without someone to turn into an “example.” No conspicuous rebels means nothing for the State to crucify for the edification of the public. As we mathematical types like to say, quod erat demonstrandum.”
The Bastion Of Liberty blogger describes it thusly:
“Think about how you could arrange your affairs so as to dismiss the demands of the State while remaining free of its scrutiny. While it would be harder for some than for others, millions of Americans and their enterprises could contrive to ignore the demands and decrees of the governments that claim “authority” over us.”
There are many more blogs speaking of the same things to varying degrees, and I’m positive families are discussing the same things and making concrete choices. The great migration out of the blue cities and into the countryside is one example of things that are happening right now.
One of my goals in writing this article was to flesh out what “Irish Democracy” looks like to me and then do it. I personally have a simple list: self-sufficiency, reduction in taxable income in order to starve the beast, little or no debt, refusal to participate in “Hollywood” (which is like a mind-altering drug), refusal of all mainstream media inputs, refusal to participate in any brainwashing activities (like public education and Marxist churches), refusal to support, frequent, help, or defend anyone with Marxist and/or Communist ties. This is simple stuff. This is the “go Galt” method. But, what about the “go Irish” method? Ahhh, well, let me explain.
I have no intention of forming or being a part of a militia or any formal group advocating for the overthrow of the government – that would make me a target. Unless they start taking my friends and family members and neighbors to camps, I will only shoot in self-defense. If they do start doing that, all bets are off, and we’ll just call it guerrilla warfare, and yes, I’ll kill as many as I can before I’m shot dead, which will probably come quickly. May the best-armed communities win.
Irish Democracy can be summed up as throwing as much sand in the gears of our “democracy” as we can humanly, possibly, throw. I urge you to let your mind wander over the concepts here, as you go about your day-to-day life. You may come up with your own thoughts and actions related to your specific circumstances and lifestyle.
Claire Wolfe recently wrote an interesting post, entitled Outlaw Moles – Now More Important Than Ever. It fits right in with my thinking – the idea that if you are embedded deeply into our modern world rather than in a hidey-hole, and for your own reasons you must stay there (income, reaching for retirement, etc.), you too can be very effective on behalf of the Resistance.
What is happening in our country must not stand. It is up to all of us to right the sinking ship.
