One of the most common arguments of citizen control cultists for infringements upon the Second Amendment is their fevered belief that it is “obsolete.” Their arguments claim to be multifaceted and intelligent, but boil down to two very simple, childish arguments.
The Second Amendment is old, and does not apply in modern times.
The underlying sentiment is that the Second Amendment was written in the old days, before police forces and standing armies and widespread government encroaching on every aspect of your life wasn’t there to “protect” you. This belief is predicated entirely on the entirely belief that the state (government) is a benevolent dictator, and that if we simply give up our crude and savage ways (and our arms), that the state will make everything “better.”
This belief hinges upon the expectation that for the first time in human history, a government with absolute power over its citizenry will not use that power to exploit the citizenry to enrich those at the highest levels of government, and that that government will not resort to oppression and even democide to achieve their ends. Apparently, the 262 million murdered by their own governments in 20th century after disarming their citizens “for public safety” don’t speak loudly enough from the husks of ovens and mass graves still being discovered to reach the ears of those who imagine themselves to somehow be the first to champion the idea of an all-powerful central government.
The fact of the matter, proven time and again through history on every continent (including our own), is that those who have the credible threat of violence will be negotiated with by governments, while those who do not will be slaughtered in genocides or herded onto reservations and concentration camps.
It can happen here.
It has happened here, and within the lifetimes of Americans still living.
To date, American concentration camps have been relatively benign (if you consider the endemic destruction and near genocide of Native American tribes on reservations through government-prescribed poverty “benign”), but the simple fact of the matter is that there are Americans alive today that have influenced the highest office in the land who have actively championed death camps, and the mass murder of Americans who refuse to give up their beliefs.
I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.
And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”
Twenty-five million people.
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.
And they were dead serious.
