The Power of No Makes You Invincible
Claire Wolfe reminds her readers that today is John Galt Day, but more importantly, in a post Claire titled Mythperceptions and a vision of freedom, Claire points out the fallacy of the state’s alleged grip on power with these words.
Government is so powerful it’ll stop us. (It’ll disarm us, cut off our ‘Net access, round us all up and put us in camps, etc.)...
...we’ll see how “powerful” government is.
All you have to do is look at the drug war, a battle the fedgov’s been waging since 1937, and that’s been all-out for decades. Yeah, it’s damaged millions of lives. Yeah, it’s killed people. Yeah, yeah, yeah, to all the bad things.
And you can still get damn near any drug you want in any place you go looking for it. More potent and cheaper than ever.
Some “power.” That’s the all-mighty force you’re so afraid of?
Claire ends that post with these words.
Quit making excuses. Get out and do some freedom.
The simplest way to get out and do some freedom as an individual, per Claire’s suggestion, is to just say no to the state, though this is not without risk in today’s world of wrong address no knock raids, dead dogs, and U.S. military planning for deployment on American soil against Americans. Just say no, as suggested by a letter writer to John C. Wright, which he posted under the heading Resisting the Big Brother.
Look, folks, it’s really quite simple. Just say “no”. Whenever they tell you to do something you cannot do just look them in the eye and say “no”...
...The power of No makes you invincible.
