"The establishment media and the
establishment government are criminals."

Special to the Libertarian Enterprise

They were slaughtering civilians in the countries they occupied. Their soldiers were raping civilians and torturing prisoners to death. They were committing war crimes abroad. They were slaughtering civilians at home, too, and silencing dissent through brutal repression. Children and adults were being spirited out of their homes by gangs of thugs to be imprisoned, tortured, and abused without any legal process at all. Families lost contact with the disappeared, and there was no way to provide legal counsel or any help at all.

The government leaders pretended they didn't know, that they had not been told, or that what they were doing was "necessary" to defend freedom. But how is murder, rape, and torture involved in defending freedom? What does the slaughter of men, women, and children in a church have to do with the rights, liberty, and property that make a free society prosperous?

Instead of revealing information, the government was withholding information. Instead of a commission of inquiry to reveal the truth, those in power continued to insist on secrecy, equivocation, and lies. Instead of resisting them, many of the people were prostrate, silent, and complicit. The news media instead of asking the difficult questions and demanding answers, was silent and complicit. Instead of applauding protests, the news media were mocking and deriding them.

Nazi Germany? Yes. Militarist Japan? Yes. Soviet Russia? Yes. Communist China? Yes. The United States of America? Yes.

Is anyone surprised? Does anyone, at this point, doubt the facts? Then let facts be submitted candidly. (I found it surprisingly easy to find links on these topics, and often hundreds of thousands of results. If you don't like my links, search for your own. See how easy? Can you read each of these pages, please, and tell me that you aren't disturbed? Why not? What's wrong with you?!)

The establishment media and the establishment government of the United States of America are criminals. They are committing and hiding crimes against humanity. The government of the United States of America is a tyranny.

It is time for Americans to make this country ungovernable. Stop supporting the government. Stop approving of recruiting efforts. Stop sending your children to be turned into government monsters. Stop serving. Rise up against your oppressors and withdraw your consent.

Tell them that there can be no peace without justice, no justice without freedom, and no freedom without weapons. Use the soap box, ballot box, paint box, jury box, and cartridge box when, where, as, and how you see fit.

It is time to stop doing nothing. It is time to do what is right.

Speak out. Loudly. Demand that your friends listen. Demand that your neighbors listen. Demand that the government stop oppressing you and your countrymen.

It is time now for the Second World War to end. The occupation of Germany and the occupation of Japan by USA troops must end and all the troops must come home. It is time for the Korean War to end. The occupation of Korea must end and all the troops must come home. The Iraq War must end. The occupation of Iraq must end and all the troops must come home. The Afghanistan War must end and all the troops must come home. The same is true of all the other 805 military bases in 160 countries, which does not count any embassies and their guard troops. However, most embassies should be closed and even those troops brought home.

The tyrannical dictatorship of the power elite must end. Habeas corpus and the Bill of Rights must be restored. The powers delegated to government have been abused, so they must all be removed. Congress must be rendered powerless. Until those in government act with restraint, decency, integrity, and within the limits of power delegated to them, they must be allowed no powers.

It has to cost them something.

A Nuremberg style commission must be formed to put all USA political leaders and all bureau-rats on trial. Those found guilty of ordering crimes against humanity must be executed. Those found guilty of making war on the American people, including the war on drugs and the war on terror, must be convicted of treason and executed.

Americans must do these things. It is our country, and it is our job to make it right.

If you don't agree, go to Hell, and may God have mercy on your soul.
