Re-Post: Counting Coup: A Challenge to Serious III Patriots
Counting Coup is the act of physically putting your hand on a mortal enemy and then withdrawing, without getting yourself killed.
It is a Warrior's practice.
Restoration is not a game. If you are not ready to kill or die for Liberty, please leave this site and do not return.
If you are a serious III Patriot and you have prep, you have trained, you have done your best to talk the Enemies of Liberty out of their foolish intent, and you have resigned yourself to the fact that mortal combat will likely come to the republic in your lifetime...consider this call to action to Count Coup.
I am not speaking to keyboard commandoes or surplus store mercenaries who collect gear that they will never use. I am not speaking to those among us who love to dream about glorious battle, yet wet their panties when LEO falls in behind them for a traffic stop, or the 'hardcore' Patriots who talk of killing Stacks, yet have no stomach for even verbal self defense in the digital world.
I am talking to you serious III men and women who have decided that enemy contact is imminent, and the loser will die or go to prison forever.
How are you preparing yourself for the adrenaline dump that will come with your first real contact with the enemy? Driving your elbow into the face of a Bad Guy is not the same as rehearsing it in your mind, or even doing it in a dojo. Pulling the trigger of your handgun on a tactical course and hearing the steel ring out is not the same as double-tapping a Bad Guy. The emotional gulf is so immense you really can not train for it and get close to the reality.
How can you close the gap?
I offer you this challenge: Consider your AO and give serious thought to ways you can Count Coup as a training exercise. What can you do to cross the threshold from training to low-risk action that will begin to close the gap between the theory and practice of Resistance.
Think about it for a while, plan for it as you would an Op that has life and death potential. Start small and low-risk. Don't start by bitch-slapping a LEO as he eats a donut. Consider something along the lines of a III/Resist sticker on the car or office of a Democrat running for office.
Let your imagination work.
Think about it.
Train now. When it gets real, the margin for error will be merciless.
