Simon Black’s Take On This Weekend’s Shooting, And What It May Mean For America’s Future
by Tyler Durden
Simon Black, whose first person observations of the world outside America have made his website Sovereign Man truly an entertaining and informative read, and who has been anticipating the encroaching transition of America to a control state, shares his two cents on this weekend’s tragic shooting in Florida. “With one of their own victimized, however, I’m concerned that politicians will close ranks, capitalize on the social mood to generate a renewed faith in government, and pass a host of reactionary policies… all after sanitizing their Twitter feeds for any reference to violence, of course. Perhaps some form of gun control is in the works… though with a Republican controlled Congress, I’d think new legislation targeting suspected ‘Anti-American subversives’ could be on the table, or something that gives sweeping new powers to government agents and police forces.” And as always, Simon’s suggestion is a logical one: “I would suggest that if your ideals and beliefs make you increasingly isolated from your neighbors, maybe it’s time to find new neighbors.” We are sure this will anger Mike Krieger who advocates an attempt to regain control back from the kleptocratic corporatocracy (by peaceful means of course), although at some point one has to ask: when is enough, enough…
On the weekend’s shooting, from Simon Black
I abhor violence. Non-retaliatory violence is a desperate act of intolerant men who cannot sort out their differences reasonably and peacefully. Violence is the answer for those who lack the intellectual merit to win a battle of ideas and can only resort to more animalistic behavior to impress their point.
