20 January in Richmond: The Vanderboegh Doctrine is already on Display

If you've been paying attention for any significant length of time to the players in this farce called 'Resist', you are probably pinching the bridge of your nose while trying to ignore the screeching of doom and revolution that is unquestioningly going to erupt in Richmond on 20 January.

No, it isn't. If anyone starts shooting that day History will eventually note the trigger-puller was directly employed by, or otherwise manipulated by, OpFor.  What is OpFor?  OpFor is that vast sea of pathetic humanity that has no honest affection for Jeffersonian Rightful Liberty.

Yeah, there's a LOT of OpFor out there.

The genuine Patriots who attend the Richmond gig will be drowned out by the posers.  Some Poser or another is bound to claim a FedGov Drone Strike is inbound - right Stewie?

You see, the Vanderboegh Doctrine remains the default posture of most vocal 'Patriots' who rabblerabblerabble online.  You know the doctrine - rabblerabblerabble, then show up to an 'Armed Resistance Protest' with a zip tie through your weapon, empty mags, and if you should come up against some impenetrable obstacle (such as wooden doors held closed by a 150 year-old lock) - then turn around, claim victory, rabblerabblerabble some more, then go home and wait for your next welfare check from the very 'Gummint' you were just 'protesting'.

Evidence, you ask?  Well certainly, good sir.  The retreat and supplication is already on full display.  Just ask Chris Hill - who now 'may or may not' attend the Richmond gig armed - and 'may not' enter the Capitol Square - you know, because the Governor wrote 'No Constitutional Protesting Here' in a memo.

Then, of course, there is the 'Too Cool for School' class of "Patriots" who revel in their online blogs denouncing and criticizing every single decision taken by the guys on the ground.  Many of these idiots - who will NOT be in Richmond, because, you know, they are too cool and smart - even prattle on about how the 'Militia' is illegal and immoral.  Some gibberish about having surrendered the right to a militia once the Constitution was ratified.  Many of these 'Experts' will be working at their State & FedGov jobs on the 20th - right JC?

Then there is the TINVOWOOT Brigade who will be anywhere BUT Richmond on the 20th.  You see, these folks believe that only through cataclysmic violence that '...burns everything to the ground...' can their Utopian Anarchy come to be - you know, where all of the Anarchists agree (otherwise known as voting the same) to live happily in their Anarchy world.  Yeah, they won't be there on the 20th - but you can bet they'll have a lot to say about it afterward - whatever may happen on the ground.

Then there are the Nancy Pelosi Patriots.  They won't be there on the 20th.  You know the type - they wear the frock of 'Patriot' the same way Nancy Pelosi claims to be a good Catholic.  Just don't talk to her about abortion, ok?  Well the Nancy Pelosi 'Patriots' are the sort who rabblerabblerabble while living hip-deep in the Socialist lifestyle they rant about - just keep taking those monthly Social Security checks and medicaid handouts - Right Kenny?  

The hypocrisy stuns.  What do 99% of these 'Patriots' have in common?  They have never, nor will they ever, produce one product or service that benefits Liberty.  They are Takers - not Makers.

Anyway - it is very possible something will get out of hand in Richmond on the 20th.  But if anything happens, you can be certain of one thing - it ain't a Lexington Repeat.

Because John Parker ain't gonna be there.

Left and Right as Cosmological Systems

It really is simply Good versus Evil.

- K

Merry Christmas.


What is the right, and what is the left? Do they represent economic interests? Are they mere political designations? Might they signify metaphysical or moral doctrines? What if the answer is — all the above? What if left and right were grounded in two opposing cosmological ideas? (Cosmology being a theory or belief about the origin of the universe.)

Our right/left terminology originated during the French Revolution. The National Assembly, which initially worked to transform France from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy, debated how much power the king should have. Those who supported the king sat to the right of the assembly’s president. Those who opposed the king, sat on the left. It was also noticed that those who supported Christianity and the Church sat on the right. Consequently the right was described as “the party of order” and the left was described as “the party of movement.”

Recently a left-wing scholar claimed that the distinction of left and right was invented to serve the right. He says the right continues to benefit from a system of labeling in which “right” is the opposite of “wrong.” After all, the left-hand path has often been synonymous with evil. Why, indeed, would anyone accept a “leftist” label? The “left” is not merely a direction. It signifies something harmful, menacing, or ominous. One of the original definitions of the word “sinister” is “on the left side.”

Given the association of the left-hand side with evil, it might appear strange that radical French revolutionaries, socialists and communists should have accepted the designation of “leftist.” Yet, the designation was accepted because it made so much sense. In wanting to overthrow the authority of the Church, the leftists accepted that they were the enemies of God (even if they did not literally believe in the existence of God). Therefore the leftist label had symbolic profundity in it. In opposition to established ideas of good and evil, the left was advocating a godless cosmology.

The notion that the universe simply exists, without a divine intelligence or divine ordering behind it, was questioned twenty-four centuries ago by Aristotle in his Metaphysics. It was Aristotle who argued that the physical universe was a sequence of cause-and-effect that could not be traced back through an infinite succession of ages. Therefore the material universe had a beginning. It was caused by something outside itself — something Aristotle called “the unmoved mover.” Christian cosmology profited from Aristotle’s Metaphysics, a teaching which was integrated into Christianity by Saint Thomas Aquinas. Later scientific revelations that the universe began in a Big Bang added weight to Aristotle’s argument.

The Christian/Aristotelian cosmology was dominant for many centuries. The idea of a created universe inspired reverential awe in the philosophers and schoolmen. Creation logically entailed the existence of a Creator and the concept of a divine moral order. Opposed to this moral order was the great serpent, known to Egyptian and Greek mythology as a creature of darkness, envious of the light — in Judaism and Christianity we find this serpent in the Garden of Eden, as the Dragon of St. John’s Revelation, as the rebellious angel of Milton’s Paradise Lost.

Mankind’s oldest and most profound thoughts on good and evil are found in these stories and their symbols (which are still valid today). Writing on the nature and origin of evil, Aquinas explained, “God’s activity is of two kinds: creation and governance.” Aquinas then suggested that God’s goodness is not contradicted by the creation of evil because “evil is subject to his governance.” Having power over the whole of creation, God allows evil to exist as part of a divine plan leading to a greater good.

This is where the plot thickens. Our latter-day political struggles are directly connected to old legends, cosmologies and theologies. Today’s political stage bears witness to a tremendous spiritual drama. The left has rebelled against centuries of religious and philosophical teachings — imitating the evil serpent-god of destruction (known to the Egyptians as Apep). Under an undisguised banner of sinisterism (i.e., leftism), the left proposes a metaphysical rebellion. If we examine the works of Marx and Engels closely, their revolutionary rhetoric is not merely against capitalism. Their rhetoric denies moral accountability to a higher power. It casts aside the problem of evil by denying the existence of God. The Communist Manifesto called for the eradication of all moral values.

Properly understood, therefore, left and right are not ultimately grounded in questions of class privilege or the economic exploitation of the poor. The class struggle theme, while belonging to the left, is actually a sub-theme. The left is focused on the negation of Aristotle’s metaphysics and the denial of our oldest stories and symbols (excepting the snake in the Garden). Here is an attempt to negate our religion, our morality, our customs, our poetry, our very souls. As the advocate of this negation, the left revolutionary advances a new kind of religion, a new idea of the cosmos (materialism) by way of nihilism; that is, belief in a world without God-given order, purpose, or divinity. The left’s method is to invert all the concepts that underlie civilization.

The war between left and right, therefore, derives from diametrically opposed metaphysical and cosmological ideas. The resulting conflict is nothing less than a religious civil war. As such, there could not be a more momentous clash of true opposites. Here we find a serious danger to mankind: the enantiodromia described by Carl Jung as —
