Civilian Disarmament: Prelude to Tyranny

Here is an excellent historical exposition of civilian disarmament and the key role it has played in mass murder by William Norman Grigg, as well as some interesting quotes regarding the reasoning behind the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution and the UN’s schemes to ensure the state’s monopoly of power.

For those readers wishing for a break from gun laws, read this eye-opening article from Grigg on the bogus war on drugs, and what happens if you try to bust the wrong people.

  1. When people see this is from the JBS they may dismiss it without even bothering to listen to it. And it is quite true that JBS people tend to be religious (after all the society is named after a missionary – bit of a hint there), and over the decades they allowed in people who were too careless (far too careless) in their charges (another hint – something from “a member of the JBS” is not the same as “from the JBS”).

    However, it is wrong to dismiss something just becase it has the JBS name on it This is a good talk – with a lot factual information and logical argument. If someone wants to argue against the talk that is fine – but I hope they will argue on the merits, not go “it is from the JBS – boo, hiss”.

    Historically (even before the invention of firearms) is someone could not legally own weapons they were a slave (or a serf).

    When Augustus wanted to destroy the reality of the Republic (whilst keeping its form – the Senate would still meet and so on) he understood that the way to do this was to forbid the private ownership of, and training with, weapons.

    Not any weapons of course (people would still be allowed staffs and daggers) just military weapons. After all why would people need those? Not with the Legions to protect them…..

    There have been terrible Civil Wars in Rome – this is the way to prevent future ones, to ensure public peace….

    As for the mordern situation…

    It only things like United Nations Small Arms Treaty were “JBS paranoia” – sadly they are all two real.

    And past (false but binding) court judgements say that if the Senate ratifies a treaty that the President has signed, Constitutional concerns (somehow) go away…….

    And a President can act (via unconstitutional Executive Orders and so on) even without Senate ratification.

    “BUT WHAT ABOUT BRITAIN?”

    Does anyone (anyone at all) believe there is any chance that the British government would not rush to agree to the Unted Nations treaty – or, indeed, any world government (sorry “world governance” not “world government”) proposal?

    Anyone who opposed it would be (if they were mentioned at all) would be shouted down as “paranoid” and (most likely) “racist” as well.

    There is no chance (none) that the British Parliament (that plaything of the Executive) would oppose such treaties – they, most likely, would not even be given a vote on them (perhaps not even know of them).

    That is why it is so often pointless to talk about liberty in a British context.

    The idea of an independent legislature made up of citizens who only meet for a few days a year (and so are not professional politicians) and yet must ratify the actions of he Executive (or those actions are VOID) might fit Texas (itself a place of tens of millions of people and physically larger than most nations on Earth) – but it certainly does not apply to Britain (or, these days, to the United States).

    Please note – if “members of the legislature” work long hours most days of the year (as polticians actually BOAST they do) then they are not really a “check on the government” – they are PART OF THE GOVERNMENT (most likely paid as such)..

  2. re: JBS, William Grigg is no longer with them, as far as I know, due to a dispute about them making too much of a fuss about immigration, and too little about the violation of rights under the GOP.

  3. The violation of rights point is important.

    It is simply no good to say “we will not abuse the Patriot Act” (and so on). Once government is given such powers OF COURSE they will be abused If not at once – then soon.
