Solzhenitsyn Stratagem

Solzhenitsyn Stratagem
I first encountered Solzhenitsyn in March 1976 when his BBC interview was broadcast on Bill Buckley's Firing Line TV Show. I was enthralled with the courage and dynamism of the man who had been through so much. I soon after bought a copy of his book, The Gulag Archipelago. I still have it today. Dog eared, underlined, with faded highlighting it is still one of my most prized processions. It is not that it was autographed or a special edition of which it is neither, it was one of the great pieces of literature that nurtured the spirit of liberty within me as a young man . It was another "different drummer" that resonated a responsive chord of freedom within my heart as did Thoreau's essay, "Civil Disobedience" when I was still in high school.
I have often thought that if one has not lived through tyranny, one can learn about its many faces by reading the writings of those who have survived its cruelties. As government injustices compound in our world and in our own country, we are blind and foolish if we can not learn from those who already experienced the horror and warn us of the signs of eminent tyranny.
Solzhenitsyn gives us a chilling view into what could lay before us if we don't learn from his past. Thus I give you my favorite Solzhenitsyn quote from the The Gulag Archipelago as a warning and a reminder that uncontrolled government is an evil that must be contained with whatever means is necessary to contain it.
"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every police operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? If during periods of mass arrests people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers or whatever was at hand? The organs (USSR enforcers - Ed.) would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." ---Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Gulag Archipelago
Based upon the Natural Law right to rectification, restoration, and compensation for loss of property (pursuit of happiness), liberty, or life the Solzhenitsyn Stratagem recognizes that the predominant Statist "legal" system is actually a usurper of Natural Law and Natural Rights. Statist "legal" systems aggress to obtain a monopoly on the adjudication of injury and the administration of rectification. Often, there is NO restoration or fair compensation for loss or injury due to Statist protectionism of elitist policies. Thus, Natural Law and Natural Rights are not serviced and there is NO balanced justice only a "just-us" additional injury to the people. Therefore, as the people are the authors of authority it is the Natural Right of the people to judge the “law” and the State actors if fair rectification and restoration are short-changed and out of balance. If the actor(s)/injurer(s) refuse to restore the property, liberty, or life with the transfer of their own property, liberty & life by way of indenture to the aggrieved parties then they forfeit by blood.
“When...it becomes necessary for one people ...to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them...they should declare the causes which impel them...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness....That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness....when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." --  Declaration of Independence 1776 (edited for clarity-Ed)

A new clothing line lets you camouflage yourself as a car to mess with surveillance cameras. The garments in the Adversarial Fashion collection are covered with license plate images that trigger automated license plate readers, or ALPRs, to inject junk data into systems used to monitor and track civilians. 

ALPRs -- which are typically mounted on street poles, streetlights, highway overpasses and mobile trailers -- use networked surveillance cameras and image recognition to track license plate numbers, along with location, date and time. 
Hacker and fashion designer Kate Rose showed off her inaugural line at the DefCon cybersecurity conference in Las Vegas over the weekend. It was inspired by a conversation with a friend who works at the Electronic Frontier Foundation about the "low specificity" or inaccuracy of a lot of plate readers on police cars. 
The Adversarial Fashion garments, she said, highlight the need to make computer-controlled surveillance less invasive and harder to use without human oversight. 
"A person walking along the sidewalk or in a crosswalk is often close enough, as the readers take in a pretty large visual field, and have ... problems with specificity." The line is conceptual, she said, "but I worked pretty hard to make sure that it can work on the street in daylight." 
The collection includes shirts, hoodies, jackets, dresses and skirts covered in modified license plate images and other circuitry patterns. Some of the garb features wording from the Fourth Amendment in bold yellow letters written over separate license plates made to look like the kind you see on vintage California cars: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Freedom Shenanigan # 56 - Live The 5Truths

Freedom Shenanigan #56 

LIVE the 5Truths!

Originally published as
Why We Celebrate July 4th
By Tim Wingate ã 1999

In 1776, fifty-six men signed the Declaration of Independence declaring that,

“We hold these truths to be self-evident…”

What truths were “these truths”?

The 5 Truths

The whole of the Declaration of Independence and the following instituted governments of the United States of America rest upon the acknowledgment of these 5Truths.

The signers of the Declaration of Independence believed that those who supported these 5 Truths were good moral people and supporters of freedom. 

However, those who opposed the 5 Truths were against liberty as agents of dictators, tyrants, and despots. Which one are you?
Do you believe in the 5 Truths?

Truth 1. All people are created equal.

Truth 2. All people created equal are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.  (No commentary was given about the nature of, or, who this “Creator” was believed to be. However, the previous paragraph declares that people have “separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitles them.”  Therefore, it can be inferred based on the common beliefs of the day that the implication was from a general “Enlightenment” worldview.)  The certain unalienable Rights: Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness (an idiomatic phrase combining an Epicurean concept of "prosperity, thriving, well-being," and John Locke's "property". Thus, respect for one's own and another's Life, Liberty, and Property is the basis for GOOD morality!)

Truth 3Only by the consent of the created equal people with endowed certain unalienable rights, governments are formed to secure those endowed certain unalienable rights and derive their powers only from the consent of the equal people endowed with certain unalienable rights.

Truth 4. When any form of government becomes destructive of those endowed certain unalienable rights of the equal people, it is the “Right of the People” created equal and endowed with certain unalienable rights to replace that government with one that will secure those, endowed certain unalienable rights of the equal people.

Truth 5. When it becomes evident that a form of government has a design to reduce the equal people with endowed certain unalienable rights under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such a government. And that a decent respect for the opinions of mankind requires that the equal people with endowed certain unalienable rights should declare the causes that make them change governments by submitting facts to a candid world.

Make no mistake in thinking that this is a light matter. There are those among us who believe that “government” is the source of rights and liberty. They are the modern day Tories, the royalists, and believers in the divine rights of kings. Only today their “king” is the Government.

We have almost come full circle in our experiment in liberty to from where we started.

an out of control constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary government that reduced its loyal citizens to a property of the State,

a constitutional representative bicameral government with an unanswerable “Supreme Court” that distorts words and meanings in the Constitution thereby reducing the people to a property of the State.

True American Liberty Lovers still believe in the 5Truths of Freedom

·        To embrace these truths by believing in them and living by them is to be an American Liberty Lover, honoring the men and women who fought and died for liberty.

·        To infringe or alienate these truths by action or accepting the government’s actions is to dishonor the sacrifice of those who have lived and died for us.

On which side do you stand?

(a)   The promise of tranquil security by intrusive government, mouthing words of liberty while taking away rights by regulation, forcing you to give up your “fair share” of freedom for privileged benefits that rest upon you as chains of control?

(b)   The 5Truths and the certain human rights endowed to an equal people that must not be infringed by your countrymen in your service in government leaving you to live the “animating contest of freedom” in liberty while pursuing the happiness of responsible self-ownership?

If you believe in the 5Truths then:
  •     LIVE the 5Truths!
  •     Generate interest in the 5Truths
  •     Tell others about the 5Truths
  •     Compare our government today to the 5Truths
  •     Use the Roman numeral V for 5 or Victory or Vendetta. 
  •     Greet one another by flashing the “old” peace sign that is a “V” or a wide open hand with 5 fingers spread wide! 
  •     Show others the “secret sign” of 5.

The Resistance has begun. Join the Resistance.

Freedom Shenanigan #55 Penises (& other body parts) for Potholes!!!

Freedom Shenanigan #55 
Penises (& other body parts) for Potholes!!!

A local Hero has shown the way to get potholes fixed by cheapass authorities.

"Imagine waking up one morning, getting into your car to go to work, turning down the corner and there you see it- a giant sketch of a penis on the road. What do you do? Laugh it out or get offended? Well, the locals of Teesside used this obscene gesture for something completely different.
A Facebook page dedicated to this surreal phenomenon called ‘Teesside Connected’ circulated the story of the gaping open potholes, which could be fatal to drivers and pedestrians alike, and how a couple of them were sporting giant penises all over it. After the potholes were fixed, most locals decided that it was all because of the power of the ‘willy’. Good golly!
In another photo, a local called Brad Nicholson reported that one of the potholes were repaired almost immediately after being, well, ‘disfigured’. Ironically, the pothole was unrepaired for a whole year before that."

Copy this Hero in YOUR town!!!

Just Restitution
As St. Augustine pointed out long ago, a "government" is simply a gang that "acquires territory, establishes a base, captures cities and subdues peoples," and then obtains supposed respectability "not by the renouncing of aggression but by the attainment of impunity."
I will say this again until this USSA state terrorism stops. Civil unrest and demonstrations won't stop it. They'll just use that as an excuse to impose curfews and checkpoints. Lawsuits won't stop this, they are post-mortem. Lawsuits only penalize the taxpayers. Firing won't stop this. They just get another job in a different jurisdiction. There is a parasitic po-Lice/T-SS-A culture that celebrates their thuggery against we the people. However, We the People have a rich culture of "extra-legal" resistance to oppression. Our heroes and heroines are those that resist regardless of words on paper. Wilhelm Tell, Susan B. Anthony, Catherine (Kate) Barry, Sybil Ludington, Nancy Hart, Sons of Liberty https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sons_..., The Battle of Athens, Tennessee http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/athens...., Edward Snowden, Wikileaks
The ONLY thing that will stop this violence by the parasitic po-Lice/T-SS-A is firm resistance specific to the parasites involved. ONLY when they individually know that if they unjustifiably (that includes their oft contrived "fears for their safety" or "he had a gun" somewhere) take another's life, they forfeit their own in a probable Natural Law exercise of a rightful remedy of just restitution.
