    When you "peacefully separate" into another government you are a slave to that new government. The southern states enslaved poor whites too by implementing a draft from which slave owners were exempt. The only people who were ever free were the pre colonial native Americans.

    ...or maybe it's all bullshit, like that turd Bill Clinton's similar proclamations in the 1992 election cycle, and Biden will do nothing. Trouble was, with Clinton, Haitians took him at his word, "The door was open" and piled into ramshackle vessels of all sorts to try and sail to Florida, to be turned back or away, and then to die, by the thousands of heat and dehydration and drowning and sinking. I know, because I picked a lot of their bodies out of the waters around Florida and the Bahamas in 1993, 1994 and 1995.

    Why is this even being argued? Devil21, Erowe...the rest of the anti borders folks...you won this issue. From what I can see so far, the new regime is committed to tearing down any restrictions for inbound migration and clemency for the illegals already here. Roughly 20 million illegals already here are now on the fast track to citizenship. Millions more are lining up and being told they now "help is on the way".

    That is precisely what I am saying, and like BSW I have had my fair share of dealings with migrants from everywhere form Vietnam to Ghana to Guatemala. And I almost never anything about how I risked life and limb to come to America to breath the sweet air of freedom or some such. The huge, vast majority of first gen immigrants are squishy left..."give me stuff", and are here for one reason and one reason only, to make a fast buck. They could not possibly care less about esoteric debates about Locke and Smith and Mises and limited government and all the rest of the nonsense we navel gaze about for hours on end. The ONLY ones that I have met where that mindset was at the forefront were the Cubans I lived with in Miami or the occasional Cambodian who was lucky enough to escape Pol-Pot and the Khmer Rouge.

    New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. Timeline of events: Secession talk increases, which drives off wealthy neo-liberals, Marxists, Massholes and other assorted slime to various victim states further south. Globalist power increases in Ottawa, forcing a number of "assimilation" measures onto French Quebec. La Résistance gains ground resulting, finally, after many years, of Quebec Independence.

    The South seceded and attacked Union Forts to protect slavery but you are correct that the North didn't fight back to end slavery. As for the president that destroyed the idea of peaceful secession, why that would be Lincoln's fellow Southerner and slave holder Andrew Jackson. He threatened to hang secessionists as traitors including his own vice president John C. Calhoun. Of course the only state serious about secession then was South Carolina. And the "nullification crisis" ended without bloodshed. Nullification >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> secession. State don't like a federal mandate? Don't enforce it. People are angry at the liberal cities and states creating "sanctuary cities." Well conservative cities and states could do the same thing for other issues like protecting the 2nd amendment. What would happen in state governments quit enforcing all federal gun laws at any level? Say if the feds weren't allowed to temporarily house federal criminal defendants and/or convicts in state facilities? States should stop cooperating with federal drug enforcement as well.

    Well I agree with you about Alex Jones but for the opposite reason I'm afraid. If you're going to gin people up about children locked in a basement you better be damn sure there is actually a basement. And sorry but an insurrection on behalf of a swamp creature like Trump isn't a valid insurrection. I was with, in spirit, the Michigan folks who confronted their governor and state legislature over the lockdowns. But I'm more bothered by Trump and Jones giving people false hope about January 6th thinking Pence somehow could/would make Trump re-elected president than I am them not actually insurrection on January 6th. Peaceful separation through secession? When has that happened? Peaceful separation is done on an individual level and individuals can come together and support each other. Should violence come to a community that has peacefully separated itself then that bridge has to be crossed when you get there. The Bundy folks got the feds to back down without first having their state legislature vote for secession or without some violent takeover of the U.S. capitol or any state capital. Local folks in local counties should strive to elect sheriffs that won't enforce unconstitutional and/or unreasonable state and federal mandates. There are real solutions that don't revolve dying or going to prison for someone that doesn't even have the guts to pardon Assange and Snowden.

    There needs to be a true study of power in the mold of Machiavelli, Pareto, Mosca, Burnham, and Yarvin/Moldbug. The fundamental problem with the right is that they're myopically focused on what power should look like, instead of what it does look like. The irony here is that it's true about pretty much the entirety of the right, from the most terminally online Q believer, who is sure that the white hats will spring the plan any time now, to the moderate constitutionalist who thinks all you have to do to understand the US is read the document. There's a love of construction on the right, and in a sense that's inevitable. There is on the left too, but the actually effective leftists are willing to jettison what were closely held values when it's necessary. Their constructions have shown a remarkable antifragility and ability to morph within the pseudo-Darwinian selection pressures of discourse. The right's constructions haven't. In the long run, what's happened over the past couple of months might be a good thing for the right. Difficult, tremendously so, even, but good. At least, eventually.

    I wonder if anybody has crunched the energy usage numbers on the Bezos model of purchasing. We set up tax, tort, and monetary policies that send all manufacturing halfway around the world, instead of perhaps 100 miles away. Now, before anything gets to you, it has to get shipped tens of thousands of miles by vessel or flown by aircraft (incredibly energy dependent). Then it shipped to a handling facility, then it is shipped to a local distribution hub, then it is delivered to your door, usually one item at a time. When hundreds of millions start shopping for daily goods like that, what is the energy footprint then?

    Not at you specifically, I am talking more of talking heads, pundits, politicians and the like. People that like to grift "our" people. I'll tell you who I'm specifically thinking of: Alex Jones and people like him. I've listened to and donated to and defended Jones for decades. For decades he has been couching his message in violent revolutionary rhetoric. This is fine by me, as I agree, there is a place for the violent revolution. But the very second, the instant there might have been an "insurrection", he goes into overdrive to distance himself from it, to cry peace peace and throw people under the bus, for only one reason: to maintain the status quo that he has built a comfortable living from, selling supplements, survival goodies and dick pills. He furthers the footprint of outright hustlers and insane people like Steve Pzkichenik (sp?) while firing and then publicly attacking the only credible "journalist" he had at his show, David Knight. I direct this at people like Rush Limbaugh who has done the same thing for over thirty years, and when the idea of secession pops up on his show, which is the only way this can be solved peacefully, rather than open a discussion about it, clamps down and doubles down on peace and "work within the system". For individuals like yourself, I'm not really directing this at you, especially those of deep faith or Amish and Quakers and so on.

    No. Trump is gutless and dishonest. He should have pardoned Assange and Snowden right after the electoral college voted and then conceded the election. His concession speech could have talked about the election fraud and the need to work hard to prevent further fraud and asking all of his supporters to go to Georgia to make sure the GOP kept the senate. Had he done that it's unlikely that what happened on January 6th would have happened. Instead narcissist-in-chief let everything continue to be all about him. He gassed his supporters up into thinking they could somehow pressure Mike Pence and the rest of the GOP to somehow give him the election. And so freaking what if the senate "convicts" him? He's already out of office. All that will mean is that they can also vote to bar him from running again. So what? The off chance that you could run again at age 78 is too much of a "sacrifice" for you to do the right thing? Forget him.

    I hear ya. I was wondering where you were going with that at first. :p There is some "pretense" though the pretense makes no sense. I listened the other day to CBS news "debunking" Q-Anon by saying there is no pedophile conspiracy in high levels of government. Hello? Dear memory hole? Jeffery Epstein was a real pedophile with a real island with real underage sex slaves on it visited by real powerful people. All of that is just reported in the open. But then Q-Anon went crazy train with trying to convince everyone that Jeffery Epstein's pal, Donald Trump, who bought the Miss Teen USA pageant and then bragged about being able to walk in on the minor girls getting dressed, was somehow the "savior" of sex slaves. Ummmm...that made no freaking sense! I still listen to conspiracy theorists like James Corbett who don't carry Trump water. I did hold out faint hope that Trump would pardon Assange and Snowden. But.....nope. Kwame Kilpatrick, corrupt liberal disgraced former mayor of Detroit, got a pardon though. So....nobody is going to save us. Got it. Agorism for the win! We all need to as individuals learn to live as best we can outside of the system and coordinate with others who share that belief system.

    music director at the Catholic Church I went to removed all references to God as he and used gender neutral terms instead. Two priest did nothing about it. In the Orthodox Churches that I've gone to not just the priest and bishops would not have put up with that, but neither would the congregation. The reason the Orthodox is Orthodox world wide despite separation by land, language and nationalities is that the congregation wants to be Orthodox.

    BTW, these are some generalities. I've been to some good Catholic Churches and luke warm Orthodox Churches but I've found Orthodoxy a lot more consistent but oddly, less rigid at the same time.

    I found there is less of a tendency for people to ask favors in prayer and more to accept God's will and his mercies.

    From my understanding, the roots of the schism go back to Augustine. He was a Latin speaking lawyer who didn’t read the Greek of the Desert Fathers. Luther and many other reformers were heavily influenced by his writings as well as Thomas Aquinas.

    Also when refering to the teachings of The Church, Catholics tend to see them as coming from the Pope and Cardinals. The Orthodox see The Church as a consensus of everyone from the Fathers to all the Orthodox today led by the Holy Spirit of course. One thing that led me away from the RCC was the

    2 Peter 1:1-11 is our view of Salvation. Yes we are predestined and were are also told to make every effort to confirm our election, so I see it as a mix of Calvinism and RCC. After the schism the Western Churches got hung up on different on bits and pieces of scripture and couldn’t focus on the whole of it. Hell’s Unicorn described Orthodoxy view on soteriology as “primitive.” I couldn’t argue with that. The icons are our family album. The Orthodox way of venerating them is no different than the way we greet each other at Church because we are made in His image. Sometimes I think Orthodox tend to argue too much like Catholics, IMO.

    Here's a quick rundown: This is my understanding of the differences between RCs and EOCs. The EOC’s interpretations of scripture takes its roots from the Desert Fathers from the 1st few centuries. There is less of a legalistic and more mystical take. God is not narrowed down to judge, brother, creator etc. He is all that at once. John the Evangelist who reclined his head on Jesus’ chest at the Last Supper, fell to his face in awe and worship in his vision in the Book of Revelation.

    Fasting and works are not to fulfil a penance, it is to be closer to God (Actually your questioning about fasting led me to Orthodoxy from the RCC) My understanding of salvation is that I am saved, and my works are to unite me with God-- more to bend my will towards God's.

    I was an atheist, then RC, and now EOC. The discussions here helped lead me to the EOC. My first intro to Faith Alone was fellow Marines who had sex with anything and said they were save by FA. That's how I argued it. I think what finally got to me was when some RCs were trying to say the good thief was saved by an act of faith because they didn't want to say he was saved by faith. It wasgrace through faith, and that would have saved me hundred of argumentative posts.

by Christian Liberty on 07-27-2013 at 06:53 PM
I'm so sick of seeing "Support our troops" or even worse "Fighting for our freedoms."

During a trip to Word of Life for a week of camp I saw a bumper sticker that said "God bless our troops, especially our snipers."

Usually, when trying to prove a point about war, I don't discuss the troops. I'll probably continue to do this. One teacher I had was open minded to listening to what I had to say about war, but had a father who had served in
