My name is Larken Rose, and you are most likely here because you have either heard about my research into the federal income tax, or you have heard about my political (or anti-political) rantings and/or books. Because the two issues are really separate, distinct issues, they are dealt with separately. So choose which path below you want.


Whining versus Resisting

It's hard to keep up with all the fascist, totalitarian power-grabs
that the megalomaniacs in Washington have been proposing recently.
Bill Clinton and his accomplices in Congress made huge leaps toward
socialism. Then "W" made far bigger leaps, toward both socialism
and fascism (and don't believe the bunk about fascism and socialism
being opposites). Now we have Obama trying to stampede toward
complete totalitarianism as fast as he can, making the others look
moderate by comparison.

And what are the people doing about it? Well, most Americans, being
utterly clueless about philosophy, economics, history, and what's
going on around them, just stand around with stupid looks on their
faces, trying to figure out why the Second Coming (the election of
the Holy Messiah, Barack Obama) hasn't saved the world yet. They'll
be wondering that for quite a while.

But what about the people who at least have some clue about what's
going on? What are they doing? Well, there is plenty of righteous
indignation, and people screaming that the sky is falling (and it
is), but what are those people suggesting as the solution? "Call
your congressman, and demand [fill in the blank]!" Or, better yet,
"Let's vote them out!"

How long have people been suggesting those things? Well, in this
country it's been happening since before the ink on the
Constitution was dry. And what good has it accomplished? None. Even
the enthusiastic, grassroots, supposedly pro-freedom victories,
such as the election of Ronald Reagan, and later the 1994
"Republican Revolution," did nothing in the long run to limit the
power of the megalomaniacs in Washington. There was a nationwide
demand for "limited government," but it didn't happen. "Government"
kept getting bigger, while individual freedom kept crumbling. How
could this be?

Because, for all their silly talk about "land of the free and home
of the brave," Americans think and act exactly like slaves. They
are comfortable perpetually whining and begging their masters to be
nice to them, but they are utterly incapable of even considering
actual resistance to tyranny. They keep asking for permission to be
free, and when "government" won't give them that permission, they
complacently do as they're told. "We can't go against the LAW,
Dorothy!" Occasionally they talk about "demanding" that "their"
congressman support or oppose certain legislation. But it's not a
"demand" if it can't be enforced; it's just pathetic begging. (And
please don't try to argue that promising to vote against a
particular crook, and in favor of his identical twin, is
"enforcing" anything.)

For all the celebrating that happens on July 4th, the truth is that
the vast majority of Americans are scared poopless of the thought
of ever NOT DOING WHAT THEY'RE TOLD. So, as loud and whiny as they
might get, most will forever remain obedient subjects, "law-abiding
taxpayers" who take great pride in how well they obey orders and
"play by the rules." They think like slaves, act like slaves, and
are treated like slaves. Then they complain about it.

Personally, I hope that Obama and his fellow control freaks in
Congress ("R" and "D" alike) completely outlaw dissent, and ban
all religion (except for the most popular religion: worship of
government). I hope they make all private gun ownership illegal,
and nationalize all industry. I hope they repeal the Constitution
outright, declare martial law, and post gun-toting, jackbooted
fascists on every corner. I hope they impose a 100% income tax, and
seize all private property. And I hope they start arresting all who
complain, throwing them into concentration camps, and torturing and
executing them.

Because if all that happens, maybe--just MAYBE--Americans will grow
a spine, and start actually resisting. And by "resisting," I don't
mean pressing buttons in voting booths, or writing your
congressman. I mean the real kind of resisting: DISOBEYING the
masters. Unfortunately, I'm not sure the American sheeple still
have it in them to do that, no matter how bad things get. We'll
know for sure, soon enough.

difference between whining about injustice, and resisting
injustice, get him a copy of "The Iron Web."
