When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
In 1867 John Stuart Mill said, “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” And Reverend Charles F. Aked, Edmund Burke, and other worthies have, over the course of centuries, voiced similar truths. So, why aren’t we listening and acting upon these words?
We, the true-born and rightly-raised People of the great land of the United States of America hold both the lions’ share of its true wealth and the vast majority of its arms – the former being why the Left and their minorities are at war with us; the latter why said war hasn’t quite “gone hot” yet. There is neither reason nor plausible excuse for our toleration of our domestic enemies’ actions, agenda, or very existence.
A very conservative estimate places the number of America’s militia who are already under arms and capable of immediate operations at somewhat above 50 million souls. 50+ million! The Left could field perhaps 1/5th that number. Indeed, 50 million militiamen is a host so vast and so pervasive as to even render the force capable by the armed services moot despite their overwhelming technological and organizational advantages.
Even a bare 3% of of our numbers would be enough to do the job, defend our nation, culture, and People, which is good because 3% active, combative involvement seems to be the historic norm and has held true across millennia and cultural differences – e.g., Muhammad couldn’t do any better than 3% either 🙄 But the important point is that even that 3% would be sufficient, even in worst-case scenarios.
So, why DO we look on and do nothing? Are we – and I’m honest enough to include myself in this – not Good Men? Do we not love, honor, respect, and cherish the nation and culture our ancestors carved out of the wilderness for us and our progeny?
Sure, it’d seem like a utopia ,,, if you tipped your head and squinted or wore blinders so that you didn’t see all the chaos, crime, and race riots. A nation with little or no law enforcement isn’t a nation anymore; it’s just a dystopian anarchy with no real future, which may be what the Left and their Blacks want.
One thing though – while the cartoon describes the whole #DefundThePolice movement as a Far Left political position, it’s now the mainstream position of the Democrats.
Our parents and grandparents lived in more optimistic times than we do today. They saw the future as bright with possibilities and filled with the benefits of our rapidly advancing technology.
The Astounding World of the Future
The future is now. OK, actually it’s last week sometime because we’ve “come farther” than what is shown in this video. In any event, feel free to quietly weep because those bright-eyed visionaries of the early-to-mid 20th century were so very right in their predictions and so very wrong about how we would make them come true.
So it’s 2014 and, like the 1st day of every year, people get busy dreaming of- making predictions about what the new year we’ll hold for them and for the societies that they live within.
I’m not really any different; I too place an arbitrary importance upon the new year even though I know that such temporal compartmentalization is illusion.
My prediction – safe, stolid, and lame as it is – is that 2014 will be the beginning of people finally noticing that we have been and are continuing, in an accelerating manner, to move rapidly into an automaton’s Utopia. At least that’s how I see it going in America.
An Automaton’s Utopia – 100% “Employment”
The constant drumbeats from the Left of raising wages and demanding greater and more comprehensive benefits for any and all employees combined with the needs to compete with foreign companies which do not suffer from these problems will continue to drive companies into greater and greater levels of automation.
Andy Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants, the parent company of the fast-food chains, Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., makes this point very clear.
When they talk about raising the minimum wage or providing health care for employees over 30 hours, you’re really encouraging automation.

CEO, CKE Restaurants
Of course, what is a Utopia for our friendly automata is likely to be cruel and harsh Dystopia for those people living within America’s borders who will find themselves replaced by more efficient and less humanesque “workers” and practices.
