To Liberals: Wake up About Militias: Just Another Part of the Exploding Localization MovementR. Hue Reddy Special to Salem-News.com
Many consider local food a drop in the bucket, up against industrial agriculture, not realizing its power.
(WASHINGTON, DC) - This is not about local food anymore. It is about a push for everything local and the local plans that can free us from debt, from corruption, from fear, from sickness, from control, from ignorance, from isolation and loneliness, from joblessness, from injustice. In every one of the major areas where localization is bursting forth, there are major government efforts to malign those involved, to block information, to use regulations and unconstitutional laws and/or police to crush what works and any new initiatives.
Below is a list of fundamental areas of our lives which are exploding locally - ending with the most crucial and not coincidentally, the one the government and mainstream media have gone after with hammer and tongs. They have endlessly encouraged liberals to fear constitutional militias so the country will be deeply divided between left and right. "Their numbers are exploding! Be very afraid." we are told. Well, duh, so are the numbers of home gardeners, people working on public banking, people teaching about alternative medicine, people warning about GMOs, people protesting fracking in their towns - all people working to help us survive. With Americans pitching in to offer what they do best to their communities, is it any wonder people with a military background are volunteering in droves to protect communities from the NDAA (which we all destest -but would we, like they, be ready to die to protect others from it?).
In money - local public banks, local currencies, barter, and even Ubuntu.The global powers are trying to ban local buying.
".... municipal purchasing from locally-based suppliers "creates nearly twice as much benefit to the local economy as buying from multinational chains. ....
In LAW - Common law
People have been trapped in the false legal system (tied to the debt-based and rigged economic one) for centuries.
"Our entire legal system is underpinned by Maritime or Admiralty Law, that very few people are even aware of and is guarded by the highest levels of our legal system. We are literally treated like .... cargo and possessions. [Emphasis added.]
"Most of us are filled with utter shock and disbelief when we first stumble upon this information .... " http://www.ubuntuparty.org.za/
It gets worse: http://www.shiftfrequency.com/
"The Catholic Church uses two legal personalities with which to conduct its international affairs: the first is as an International state known as the Vatican City State, to which the Pope is the Head of Government. The second is as the supreme legal personality above all other legal personalities by which all property and “creatures” are subjects.
The local answer is Common law grand juries which the Supreme Court recently ruled 6-3 are not part of the legislative, judicial or executive branch but are a 4th branch of government, run by the people. They have been exploding across the US, a means to hold corrupt officials and CEOs and open to anyone willing to contribute their time.
In FOOD - local farmers, community gardens, home gardens.
Many consider local food a drop in the bucket, up against industrial agriculture, not realizing its power. But the corporate food sector knows that localization of food will destroy them because of its proven potential for feeding a country real local food (with no corporations making profits).
"Back in 1999, it was estimated that 35 million small family plots throughout Russia, operated by 105 million people, or 71 percent of the Russian population, were producing about 50 percent of the nation's milk supply, 60 percent of its meat supply, 87 percent of its berry and fruit supply, 77 percent of its vegetable supply, and an astounding 92 percent of its potato supply. ....In HEALTH - health coops, natural healing, and information so people can heal themselves.
"Bear in mind that Russia only has 110 days of growing season per year -- so in the U.S., for example, gardeners' output could be substantially greater [and the US lawn] is two times greater than that of Russia's gardens."
The coops are working, even for those without insurance.
“A lot of people think their only option is to either go to emergency room or urgent care,” Carr said. “What they don't realize is that they’re often paying more than they would end up paying in a doctor's office with cash.”
The insurance industry, the pharmaceutical industry which depend on disease for profit and have designed a healthcare plan to give them profits.
The most serious challenge to the plan is not financial but medical because a local, inexpensive alternative can free people from disease.
Watch the video.
And in 10 minutes, an explanation, for why this works.
For those interested, even more detail on how disease free communities could actually be.
In ENERGY - community energy production, home systems of all kinds including homes designed for passive energy, and free energy.
The stakes are high since a global system is killing for control - wars for gas/oil, poisoning communities with fracking, exposure to nuclear accidents, mountain top removal leaching poisons downstream, etc.
Local energy threatens corporations:
"PG&E, which both supplies and distributes energy throughout Northern California, stands to lose the lucrative supply side of its business in communities that choose to go their own way. The company has a long history of successfully staving off public power ...
And corporations have suppressed advanced technologies for decades, that could give people unlimited free energy for travel, heat, cooking, etc.
“Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by power obtainable at any point in the universe...it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheel work of nature." Nikolas Tesla
in EDUCATION - community controlled schools, parents sharing teaching with other parents, homeschooling, unschooling.The questions from angry parents have caught up with education: "World Class Standards: Whose World, Which Economic Classes and What Standards?"
“If educational goals and core values are developed by a few educators in isolation from their communities, no matter how well thought out they may be they will not create the conditions needed for change.” — Tony Wagner
Various forms of homeschooling are emerging, including parents sharing teaching, and unschooling. George Bernard Shaw sums up their intent:
"What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge, not knowledge in pursuit of the child."
In MANUFACTURING - local manufacture of things needed locally, teaching skills again, 3-D printers for home manufacture
Even the corporate NY Times says the future of manufacturing is local. But the threat to global corporate power is clear and they are working to obstruct what will set communities free.
3D Printing: The Sum of All Corporate-Fascist Fears
For several years now, buzz has been growing about 3D printing. Small companies have begun opening up around the world, selling 3D printers, or using 3D printers for small run production, filling niches, or shifting markets from large corporations and their globalized supply chains, to local, decentralized business models. ....
"Caterpillar, Ford, Intel, and Apple .... would see decentralized alternatives ....utterly gut their bottom lines ....
"In America itself, there is Local Motors who recently gave a short tour of their manufacturing facility they called a "microfactory." These microfactorires .... will cater to smaller, local markets and niches, entirely replacing the centralized Fortune 500 corporations of Detroit ....."
In DEMOCRACY AND ETHICS - localizing brings accountability, localizing brings democracy, localizing offers deeper ethical interaction.
"Ideally this means living together in a community of like-minded people, a modern tribe, interacting with the world around it on the basis of mutual benefit. That is easier said than done but we can make a start by
- Respecting our fellow man / woman in their entirety
- Recognizing that everyone is equally important
- Respecting that every opinion is a valid one
- Giving an equal amount of time to everyone to express themselves
- Listening carefully to what others say
- Not allowing ourselves or others to dominate
- Creating mechanisms whereby we support each other in all life situations (sickness, bereavement, loss of job, becoming homeless)
- Trying to care for the wellbeing of all
- Making decisions in a circle of equals taking into account the longterm effect of our decisions
- Beginning all meetings in a circle, welcoming each other and appreciating each others’ presence
- Organising meetings for celebrations and enjoyment
- Trying to grow as much of the food we need in a co-operative way to again connect to nature and our spiritual selves
In DEFENSE - bringing military home, local militia, community support of militia
Militias - for all the government effort to portray them as dangerous racists or terrorists - are just part of the move to RE-localize crucial functions of our communities, in their case, protecting people (e.g. police are not trained to stop a Mexican cartel from attacking a community). Just as with attacks on local food, undermining of local manufacturing, obstacles to local energy and local banking, there is push back against militia from those in power and in the militia case, it is fierce.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, working for and paid by DHS, has beenaccusing multi-racial Constitutional militia groups of being racist and terrorists. Nevermind that
the voluntary militias serve their community just as local volunteer fire departments do only they are prepared to protect their communities from the warrantless, trial-less round up of citizens that the NDAA includes and from martial law.
This militia site in Texas whose motto is Every race, Every tribe, One America is non-racist, professional, constitutional, and a national organizer of other militias are designed to be. Their commitment is local but their intent is similiar to Oathkeepers, a military and veterans' group that invites all military live up to their oath to the Constitution and to the American people, to defend the country from enemies foreign and domestic.
Laws like the NDAA are specifically what they are determined to PREVENT:
Does the man sound like a dangerous white racist or a terrorist to you?
Does this list of what these groups would defend citizens against sound like plans of terrorists, or something any community would deeply appreciate?This is who stands between you and the NDAA, you and chaos if food stamps are cut off or the grid goes down. They are your neighbors, who will show up at your door to be sure you have enough food and water, not to break it down to commandeer your home, as was done in Boston (completely unconstitutionally). These are people who take our local communities so seriously, that are willing to die for us and our families.
1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.
2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people
3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.
5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.
6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.
8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control."
9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.
10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
"A well regulated Militia,
All of this localization would please Gandhi - and very much so, the militias, for he saw gun ownership as crucial. For Liberals who favor gun control and may not know total confiscation is planned here, Gandhi considered the disarming of the Indian people not one among many "misdeeds" (including slaughter of unarmed people), but the worst of them all.
Among the many misdeeds
of the British rule in India,
history will look upon
depriving a whole nation of arms
as the blackest.
"People outside India know of Gandhi's campaigns to end British colonialism, but .... [t]he greater part of Gandhi's work was to renew India's vitality and regenerate its culture. ....
Swadeshi avoids economic dependence on external market forces that could make the village community vulnerable. ....
Every village community of free India should have its own carpenters, shoemakers, potters, builders, mechanics, farmers, engineers, weavers, teachers, bankers, merchants, traders, musicians, artists, and priests. ....
The British believed in centralized, industrialized, and mechanized modes of production. Gandhi turned this principle on its head and envisioned a decentralized, homegrown, hand-crafted mode of production. In his words, "Not mass production, but production by the masses."
In seeing so many ways the country is going local, we can suddenly see the diversity of contributions from Americans across the political spectrum to the whole - to the good of everyone. People have been working tirelessly to protect us - by localizing our health, our money, our manufacturing, our legal rights, our schooling, our food, and even the defense of our lives.
Localization is not a small thing. It is THE most powerful means to free us from corrupt global corporate power. And despite massive and malign efforts to divide this country via fear and hatred, localization brings us together and together, we can't be defeated.
