Violent Protest Is a Death Knell to Freedom – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on March 28, 2023

Millions are in the streets, but when they were locked down, imprisoned in their own homes, subject to mandatory poisonous bio-weapon injections, masked, their jobs lost, and their economy destroyed, they did not protest in this manner. But they are now burning cars, buildings, rioting, throwing fire bombs and rocks, harming private businesses all over the city; all in what looks like a war zone, to attempt to gain State welfare pensions.

All this type of ‘protesting’ accomplishes, is to give ammunition to all the State’s political scum and their enforcement thugs called police and military, in order to falsely legitimize the use of extreme force against its own citizenry.

By Gary D. Barnett

“I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”

Mahatma Gandhi, The Essential Gandhi: An Anthology of His Writings on His Life, Work, and Ideas

There are different types of protest, few of value, but in reality, when protesting authoritarian rule or government, the best and most legitimate response is one of negation of the State, negation of compliance; in other words, complete disobedience and ignoring all aspects of State rule and mandates at every opportunity possible. This approach in fact, is the only justifiable way to stop oppression and tyranny without becoming the same evil that is the enemy oppressor. Self-defense is another matter, as when confronted physically, or when great harm to self, family, or other innocents is active and present, equal or greater force may be required to stop the threat.

In today’s world, a world consumed by contradiction, indifference, immorality, and theatre, protest more often than not is about the show, not about actually putting down the threat of the State. Usually, the collective demonstrations in the streets are meant to gain, temporarily of course, notoriety, herd acceptance, and a day or two of a party-like event. Most would not even be there unless they were surrounded by the crowd, so as to obtain what they falsely perceive as a protective shield of bodies; bodies meant to hide their actual cowardice. As soon as the cameras leave, as soon as the crowd begins to disperse, as soon as their cover disappears, they all run away to their ‘normal (abnormal) existence. They remove their masks, they drop their signs, and are at once not seething with rage or rightful anger, nor do they any longer pursue any worthwhile cause of freedom. They are again on the sideline waiting for some savior to grant them redress from the tyranny they allow. It turns out more like a movie set at the end of the day, where all the actors go home, only awaiting the next curtain call. It is merely an acted out and worthless spectacle, usually with the obvious performing speakers seeking an audience for their own advancement or benefit, while using the crowd of sheep to enhance their popularity.

When these events get out of hand, which is often; many times at the behest of speakers or agitators, violence erupts, and actual protest is the last thing on the minds of these phony protestors. Even before violent aggression takes center stage, many innocents and their property may have been harmed due to the manner and scope of these gatherings, but their rights and freedoms are ignored, usually in the asinine name of the  so-called ‘greater good.’ This dynamic has been evidenced all over the world, including in many circumstances in this country. Consider all that happened during the fake ‘covid’ era. Consider the insane staged Trump protests, where crowds of brainless dolts were running amuck, just as they were enticed and permitted to do. Once over, the State used its plan to arrest and jail protesters, and even kill one of them, while their hero Trump egged them on, just as he is doing again. Consider the horrendous garbage calling themselves the BLM or Antifa, all let loose on society by a governing cabal meant to purposely stoke hate and violence in order to divide. All of this of course, was made easy due to the lack of quality of those individuals involved in these fake protests, which included those on all sides. It is as if the directors are following the script, and the bulk of people are but mere extras, doing everything they are told to do without question. It is a pathetic display to be sure.
