Defense against tyrants is your right

You and I are ethically justified in using deadly force against agents of The State just about anytime we encounter them in their "official capacity". Cops, TSA, IRS, AFT, whatever.

When one of these "people" attempts to enforce some counterfeit "law"- any "law" that is an attempt to regulate or control anything other than aggression or theft- against anyone, they become the bad guy and it is your absolute human right to resist them however you see fit, including killing them if they don't cooperate. It is "illegal", and therefore suicidal, of course, but it is still your right. I will never condemn anyone for killing an agent of The State under such a circumstance. I can't even get too worked up over an actual thief/aggressor killing an enforcer. A bad guy killing another bad guy doesn't concern me too much, and it's one less enforcer you and I have to deal with.

Any "traffic stop"; any airport scan or pat-down; any demand to see your permit or license; any official interaction at all is a credible threat to initiate force against you. You're foolish if you don't recognize the danger. You twitch an eyelid at the wrong moment and the agent of The State will kill you in the name of "officer safety". That constitutes a credible threat to your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Do you disagree?

Many people don't want to hear this truth. They would rather weasel-word their way around the foundational facts of the matter. They don't want to be seen as "extreme". Those who defend themselves against bad guys are not "extreme"; those who support the bad guys and pretend their actions are legitimate in any way are the ones who are extreme.

No, I am not going to resort to deadly force against an agent of The State unless I feel I have nothing to lose. And, yet, the parasitic vermin of The State seem to be working really hard to make sure that those who love and really understand liberty are backed into a corner, with nothing to lose, as soon as possible. You'd think they are just dying to start a war over liberty. Well... It's their funeral.


  1. Another good one for all to read. As far as being an extremist goes I try to make sure I let folks know that I am an extremist for freedom. It seems to me that it is hard to argue against that form of extremism. I hope so anyway. Good job here again Ken.

  2. They truly are backing us up into a corner.... I find nothing in your article that isnt true.

  3. Just some quibbles.

    If you didn't agree to it, a law is counterfeit. So, all of them. Every last one.

    Like wild animals, cops don't know right from wrong. Like children,* it's not charitable to expect them to be responsible for their actions.

    However, someone decided to put a gun in the hands of a wild juvenile animal.

    *(Children of course do know right from wrong, which is why cops and other 'authorities' think they don't and need to be 'educated.')

  4. I think the local enforcers may have read this post.

  5. "Hmm, this guy thinks my employer is a vicious, evil tyrant."
    "I think I'll keep reading. This is an excellent use of my leisure time."


  6. I should probably resist, but won't:

    Did the local enforcers respond by trying to discuss it with you in a logical, civilized manner? Did they assume that perhaps you did not fully understand their point of view, and give you the benefit of the doubt?

  7. I'm being subjected to a suspicious amount of "official scrutiny".
