Decisiveness When Considering History

There are a number of ways to go out of this world during TEOTWAWKISTAN, this quote from Solzhenitsyn and the video from the movie “Chekist”, are just two. Ironically, Solzhenitsyn got the better deal (if that’s what you call that kind of prison), compared to those who were being rounded up in “Chekist”. There are no “re-do’s” or Modern Warfare 3 reset buttons when decision time comes. Understanding the reality of what happens when a government goes “Tyrant” or rogue is important. Take note of how they just do what they are told (I bet that wasn’t what they planned, was it?), all the way to standing in front of the door. “Wargame” the scenarios, make the decisions on how to deal with them, then when the time comes, be decisive.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Train and prepare yourself mentally, physically, and logistically. Make a plan based on reality and common sense.

  2. In the event of a Soviet type “hard” tyranny the only question you need to ask yourself is this: Will I kill Cops. Because the people doing the “roundups” won’t have “blue helmets” they probably won’t be the military. Like Boston, or N . O. after “Katrina” They WILL be LEO’s dressed in ninja/Nazi uniforms going “door to door” with tanks , machine guns and grenade launchers killing or brutalizing but above all DISARMING and “taking away” every man woman or child they encounter. The HAVE done it before and they WILL do it again with out hesitation if ordered to do so. You should know better than anyone, that when the badges come, you have two, AND ONLY TWO, Choices, comply or die. Because you have NO “civil rights” outside a court room. The “enforcers” WILL escalate the violence AT WILL until you submit or they kill you, and they may just kill or maim you anyway, just because they can. That is the reality in America; NOW, today. If it ever comes to “hard tyranny” that will be the only “war game” you need to know. I don’t need to study the Book of Five Rings , or the Art of War to know that the guys who will be ordered to do the dirty work are already in uniform. Working for government, and people we see every day. Men and Women who WILL OBEY those orders without question or hesitation. The truth of history is that; The POLICE enforced Stalin’s orders. The POLICE enforced Hitler’s orders. The POLICE enforced MAO’s orders. The POLICE burned the children alive at WACO. The POLICE went door to door in Boston and after Katrina . The POLICE shot Randy Weaver, his wife and son. NOT THE MILITARY and not some mythic “bad guys”. And if it all go’s bad, The POLICE, and not some mythic “Blue helmet” or “golden hoard” will be the ones coming for US. The POLICE have been the basis and “enforcers” for every “hard Tyranny” in human history, and that sir, is the real history lesson to be “war gamed”.

    • ” the only question you need to ask yourself is this: Will I kill Cops.”
      That’s not the correct question, The question is “Will you kill government backed thugs?”, because it won’t just be the police.
      “Like Boston, or N . O. after “Katrina” They WILL be LEO’s dressed in ninja/Nazi uniforms”
      Contractors were at Boston, and the military and contractors were in N.O. too.
      “you have two, AND ONLY TWO, Choices, comply or die. Because you have NO “civil rights” outside a court room.”
      Yeah, those are the choices you have according to the thugs, but you really have four, Comply, Die, Fight, or Flee.
      ” I don’t need to study the Book of Five Rings , or the Art of War to know that the guys who will be ordered to do the dirty work are already in uniform.”
      I don’t believe that’s completely true. There are plenty of Illegals coming in now that would ruthlessly enforce anything they are told to (especially the gang affiliated ones). That’s one of the reason I think they are being brought in. Although I think a percentage of LEO’s and Mil will partake, when the rubber hits the road I think a number of those in uniform will become the resistance. And yes you are right, I do know, because I know what percentage of those I am in contact with on a daily basis would be thugs, simply for the opportunity.
      “The POLICE enforced Stalin’s orders. The POLICE enforced Hitler’s orders. The POLICE enforced MAO’s orders. The POLICE burned the children alive at WACO. The POLICE went door to door in Boston and after Katrina . The POLICE shot Randy Weaver, his wife and son. NOT THE MILITARY and not some mythic “bad guys”.”
      I hear a lot of people say “The police did this for__________”, but the question should be “How many police did not participate, or just said “NO!”?” Those enforcers you speak of might have had some LEO’s in it (after the undesirables were purged from their ranks), but a lot of them were hired party thugs (did you know Stalin was one of Lenin’s enforcers, and he was never in the police). Whether it was Stalin, Hitler, or Mao, their enforcers might have used the cover of “Police”, but most were not originally part of that. I agree that the Watertown incident was BS (why were contractors involved in Boston to begin with?), and have spoken and written about this travesty under the guise of “Emergency conditions”, and I have never gotten a logical answer to what lawful authority said they could pull that crap. As I’ve said, there were military at Waco, as well as LEO’s, and the N.O. Katrina situation had Mil, LEO, and contractors involved, not just LEO’s. The bottom line is “A Thug, is a Thug, is a Thug.” Thugs can easily put on an LEO uniform (Contractors wearing BLM LEO uniforms at Bundy Ranch), and be called Cops, but they are not, are they? I get what you’re saying, and agree to a point, but your statement only covers part of the problem. The statement about choices should be “Am I willing to kill any thug who comes at me, no matter what uniform he wears, or what entity he represents?” That’s what you need to ask when “wargaming” this scenario. Honestly, right now, your biggest concern should be the influx of Contractors being used by the Feds in everything. The old name for “Contractors” was “Mercenary”, and the flagrant use of them by the Feds at every level should scare the crap out of you.

      • I am distant friends with a few cops,they tell me things go down like this large scale they will go out back door with as much gear/info. as they can and not follow orders,they say they are far from alone.Things get that bad will be the time to tell if true.On a side note,I hope to become at least a major pothole and not just a speed bump!I may be feeding/caring for the ones digging said pothole or actually digging the hole itself,again,time and situation will be the answer.

        • What about when it is gradual and they have already been imprisoning innocents, and they know people won’t trust them if they defect that late in the game? I’ve known quite a few cops, and I don’t see them changing their tune until it’s too late to matter.

  3. I have read this many times,the point about having nothing left to lose always hits home with me,I though like to add mentally”and everything to gain”.Really good article at moment on WRSA telling the story of folks in Mexico fighting back for their land and at least at moment taking on and winning against the govt. and local mafia cartels,I truly hope their strength holds and that other locals join them.

  4. The problem is determining the point at which one has nothing left to lose. In hindsight it is easy to see. Even Solzhenitzyn was writing with hindsight.

    Perhaps that’s the essential problem we should prepare for. To avoid regrets like Solzhenitsyn, should we have a well-thought out checklist of conditions that add up to intolerable tyranny, beyond which we have nothing else to lose? ( I like the “Jews in the Attic Test” as a measure of how realistic our list is, but that’s a measure of the list, not the list.) It would feel really stupid to reach the conclusion, “Oh, I guess I don’t have anything else to lose,” just as the goons are stuffing you into the cattle car.
