The Cost of an Individual Conscience

February 27, 2015

(A comment I left, which produced a lot of interesting links from my archives)

The Sword of the Stranger movie as well as Akira’s biography taught me several things. and Sword of the Stranger were interesting modern Japanese lookbacks at the warrior culture of their nation.

After the Rain, for the sword that gives life, at the highest level of excellence.

Miyamoto Musashi’s life during the decisive battle of the civil West vs East war gave me interesting questions. How Ronins appeared differently than samurai to businessmen and aristocratic zaibatsu clans in modern Japan was another piece of the puzzle.

A knight errant would be much closer to a ronin, a mercenary, or one of Akira’s Seven Samurai. It depends on if a person obeys Authority for the sake of loyalty and obedience, or whether that person obeys his own integral code and beliefs.

I did not truly understand the core message in Sword of the Stranger until later, when I learned lethal force level outputs. The moral message I didn’t even comprehend much of, until I read and reflected on the novel On Killing. The payment exacted on a person’s conscience for Obeying Authority merely because of fear of Authority.

“Cause pain before you injure. Injure before you maim. Maim before you kill. And if you must kill, make it a clean kill. Squeeze every drop of life from the opponent. Because life is so precious, it cannot be wasted, even in death.”

“Let him cut your skin, and you cut his flesh. Let him cut your flesh, and you cut his bones. Let him cut your bones, and you cut off his life.”

Exerting enough will and self discipline to take a mutual cut or death scenario, was an obvious first goal but not the last. Modern civilians complain of being hungry for 30 minutes. Interesting contrast, is it not.

Recently, the youth of Japan are receiving a slightly different message.

“Achieve your mission with all your might.
Despair not until your last breath.
Make your death count!” – Motto of

“To be honest I do not think whether they live or die is the matter at hand. Life is not always better than death. It is not that simple. Living and being made to live are very different things. What matters is what the person chooses of their own free will: whether or not it can be achieved nor how difficult it is.

I want you to consider this: imagine if what matters most to you was taken away against your will. If that is indeed worth less than your life”-

I cannot help but wonder if Japan knows that rearming is the only secure way into the future, given current strategic global affairs.

What you of the CHOAM directorate seem unable to understand is that you seldom find real loyalties in commerce. When did you last hear of a clerk giving his life for the company? Perhaps your deficiency rests in the false assumption that you can order men to think and cooperate. This has been a failure of everything from religions to general staffs throughout history. General staffs have a long record of destroying their own nations. As to religions, I recommend a rereading of Thomas Aquinas. As to you of CHOAM, what nonsense you believe! Men must want to do things out of their own innermost drives. People, not commercial organizations or chains of command, are what make great civilizations work. Every civilization depends upon the quality of the individuals it produces. If you over-organize humans, over-legalize them, suppress their urge to greatness — they cannot work and their civilization collapses.
-A letter to CHOAM, Attributed to The Preacher

I would rather die having spoken in my manner, than speak in your manner and live. For neither in war nor yet in law ought any man use every way of escaping death. For often in battle there is no doubt that if a man will throw away his arms, and fall on his knees before his pursuers, he may escape death, if a man is willing to say or do anything. The difficulty, my friends, is not in avoiding death, but in avoiding unrighteousness; for that runs deeper than death.-Socrates before the Athenian death panel

Authorities, that is what they do when they have the power, but what gives them the right except for people’s willingness to kneel down and obey? For they fear Death above all else.

” Y’all got on this boat for different reasons, but y’all come to the same place. So now I’m asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this – they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They’ll swing back to the belief that they can make people… better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin’. I aim to misbehave.

Prescience and Prophecies

February 27, 2015

JJ, I’ve heard similar stories about Khan (an education institution on the net). Khan is an example of internet no tax freedom that allows individual solutions to apply to social groups and customer market shares.

This is why the MPAA and the Leftist alliance will overturn the control of the internet, and put it back under the plantation and slave master’s control. With high taxes, 50%, to ensure that no competition will arise to challenge Hollywood, the ATF, Democrats, teacher unions, or anybody else on the Leftist alliance for that matter.Source

Overturn the control of the internet. Who would have thought of that. Before it happened that is.

Interesting news on the Ukraine conflict

February 27, 2015

Just something to slot in the analysis list for later, if it comes to it.

In less than a year, the United States has toppled the democratically-elected government of Ukraine, installed a Washington-backed stooge in Kiev, launched a bloody and costly war of annihilation on Russian-speaking people in the East, thrust the economy into a downward death spiral, and reduced the nation to an anarchic, failed state destined to endure a vicious fratricidal civil war for as far as the eye can see.

Last week, Washington suffered its greatest military defeat in more than a decade when Ukraine’s US-backed army was soundly routed in the major railway hub of Debaltsevo. Roughly, 8,000 Ukrainian regulars along with untold numbers of tanks and armored units were surrounded in what came to be known as “the cauldron.” The army of the Donetsk Peoples Republic led by DPR commander Alexander Zakharchenko, encircled the invading army and gradually tightened the cordon, eventually killing or capturing most of the troops within the pocket. The Ukrainian Armed Forces suffered major casualties ranging between 3,000 to 3,500 while a vast amount of lethal military hardware was left behind.

Looting the field used to be a rather favored outcome of war.

France’s Karma

January 11, 2015

France will rue the day that they sabotaged the Iraqi and Afghan efforts in order to one up Bush. Bush drew most of their jihadi recruits to the ME and then killed them using the US armed forces. Now that there’s no quagmire for the jihadists, they are free to train in the ME and come back to France.

Say hello to your new (or old) rulers now. Gun control is people control. The people are easily killed when they are controlled.

With an armed citizen body, the terrorists would have been looking up at numerous snipers shooting down on them. A nation that refuses to defend themselves and their families, no longer deserves to exist. That applies to America too, so it’s not anti French sentiment.

France getting punished for criticism of religion

January 11, 2015

In reply to Grim’s post about people knowing the consequences of criticizing the false prophet of Islam.

The counterargument — that we’re putting blame on the women who get raped, when 100% of the blame belongs to the rapist — is flawed because it is based on a kind of equivocation. Of course 100% of the moral blame for the crime belongs to the criminal; but banks still carry insurance, because it is wise.

The counter misses the point. The point the Left is making is that these blacks and women belong to the Left. You don’t get to decide for these slaves what they should or shouldn’t do about crime, only the Left gets to decide. Those women are not responsible or to blame for it, any more than they were when the KKK accused blacks of raping white women. That’s because it’s a matter of chain of command and ownership, and if you attempt to place responsibility or blame on women, you are elevating women to an independence that is illegal against Leftist authority or anyone who actually owns those women.

There is no counter argument against that, because people are too blind and lazy to realize that this is actually the core of the argument being made originally.

Blacks don’t think they are responsible for black on black crime. Why? Cause slaves aren’t responsible for such things, only the masters and the owners are responsible. Society is responsible for it. Because society owns those blacks, and the blacks realize this, even if they refuse to say it explicitly.

Do we sue a dog or punish it, when it breaks a public order and cleanness law or do we punish the owner? It would be crazy for society to kill every pet merely because the pet violated some ordinance or property laws. The owner is responsible for the pet’s behavior, and if the owner is not punished, then there’s little point in punishing the pet. The pet doesn’t understand these things.

Which is why it’s not such bad advice, though it is always regarded as offensive by some, to suggest to women that they should take some means to ensure their safety if they go out drinking, especially at night or in areas that have high rates of crime.

Of course it is offensive. If anyone wanted to whip your dog, Grim, for it trespassing on their territory instead of dealing with you directly, you would be offended as well, most likely.

People underestimate the Left and think they are arguing based on some common shared Western sense or morality. They do not know what it is they are facing here.

The rape topic is connected to the Islamic Jihad due mostly to how the Left responds to criticism of victims and what not. It really depends on what they label as victims, since who gets protection is dependent upon their place in the Leftist hierarchy.

Powerful anti Kool Aid as civilization falls

Many things sound familiar. Although to me, the timeline started getting obvious in 2007, and not because of Hussein Obola, the current US Regime powers that be.

Plague and Bio Warfare in the US

October 11, 2014

Patriots refuse to kill the Leftist alliance or its members. But the vice a versa isn’t true.

In the past the issue was “what if it is intentional”. Now it’s advanced beyond that stage to “why are they intentionally doing it”.
