I just don’t get it. The consistency is one thing (that deserves some dubious praise), but the notion that this is 1776 and the British are coming leaves me scratching my head. I know there is a force out there headed by the banking industry and others desperate to control everyone’s lives, but if Gandhi taught us anything, guns are useless against these forces.
The Constitution and Bill of Rights are still great, often applicable documents in today’s world, but even the Founders could not have imagined what has transpired in the past 300 and some years ago. The New World Order, if you believe George H.W. Bush, is a different kind of animal that cannot be destroyed by firearms. They have far more of them than anyone else could get their hands on, and still enough people support the government that a violent revolt would be foolish and lead to annihilation.
So what’s the deal? Why this obsession with guns? It’s not even as if anyone has ever lived in colonial days to be able to appreciate the comparisons and the differences to our time. Well, except maybe for John McCain. That guy is so old, people in retirement homes should form a choir and visit him.
At any rate, if Gandhi taught us anything, it is that violent revolution is not only an impossibility if Americans want to retain some semblance of their country, it’s ludicrous. Gandhi taught us all that nonviolence is the only way to succeed. Certainly, it is much harder these days with 24 hour propaganda networks like Fox News and MSNBC, but not impossible. In any case, your guns are entirely useless against this sort of enemy. You’re fighting ideas. Ideas cannot be destroyed by firearms. They can only be destroyed by better ideas and people to fight for them peacefully. Gandhi knew that he couldn’t make the British leave through war even if he had the arsenal and capability to do so. Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come. There’s an inevitability to certain things. Eventually, even if it takes a long time, people grow tired of fascistic rule and demand their freedom. Jesus ordered his disciples to resist the temptation to wage a revolt against Rome, but his mere presence led to the fall of that empire.
Gun or no gun, good inevitably always triumphs over evil, even if it’s not in a time frame we would prefer. The media will tell us our problems are as simple as one political party and that solutions can be fixed by a ballot system that increasingly has proven to be fraudulent. But in the end, we must take comfort in the acceptance that no one can stop an idea whose time has come (thanks, Dr. Paul).
