“The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.”—Martin Luther King Jr. (A Knock at Midnight, June 11, 1967)

In every age, we find ourselves wrestling with the question of how Jesus Christ—the itinerant preacher and revolutionary activist who died challenging the police state of his time, namely, the Roman Empire—would respond to the moral questions of our day.

For instance, what would Jesus do in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic?

Would he disregard social distancing guidelines to visit and tend to the sick and dying? Would he take the assets belonging to those massive megachurches—the…

The Defensive Training Group

Normally, that’s what you’ll hear, especially these days, if you are detailing your personal stocks of whatever to anyone, especially blood relations who are pretty much lazy and don’t believe in self-sufficiency.  You know, the type, that when you’ve broached the subject in times past, have argued that they don’t have the money for that sort of thing, first, because it’ll never happen, and second, they want to buy a boat/snow machine/quad and just finished getting season tickets for whatever their favorite snow machine is….

One fine day in the not to distant future, you hear a knock at the door, you open it, and there they are.  Imagine the graphic above is a photograph….of people you know and/or are related to by marriage or blood.  They know you’re either well-stocked or are a prepper. Twice or three times as many as are in your family.  Everyone is smiling, eyes…

End the Shutdown, a Mises Institute Editorial

Posted: April 2, 2020 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

The shutdown will cause far more harm than the coronavirus. From the Mises Institute Editorial Board at mises.org:

The shutdown of the American economy by government decree should end. The lasting and far-reaching harms caused by this authoritarian precedent far outweigh those caused by the COVID-19 virus. The American people—individuals, families, businesses—must decide for themselves how and when to reopen society and return to their daily lives.

Neither the Trump administration nor Congress has the legal authority to shut down American life absent at least baseline due process. As Judge Andrew Napolitano recently wrote, business closures, restrictions on assembly and movement, and quarantines are not constitutionally permissible under some magic “emergency” doctrine. At a minimum, the federal government must show potential imminent harm by specific infected individuals at some form of hearing or trial.

These due process requirements are not suspended.

State and local officials may claim, or even…

Shelter in Place Orders – Things of Kings

Posted: April 2, 2020 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized

“The current application of State and local authority to mandate the closure of businesses and require the people to restrict their activities to a list of government approved venues under the threat of force and punishment, is antithetical to everything America was built upon.  These orders are arbitrary, deny due process, and are rife with unbridled discretion. 

Arbitrariness is the quality of being “determined by chance, whim, or impulse, and not by necessity, reason, or principle.”  A shelter in place order that requires places of worship to close, where a finite number of people attend for less than a few hours once a week, but then claims that Wal-Mart and liquor stores, where a limitless number of people come and go every day, all day may remain open, is completely arbitrary.  Where is the science, where is the reason that says that people sitting in a church are more susceptible to a virus than those who go to Walmart or the liquor store?  The answer is simple, it doesn’t exist.  The decision to close the church, a shoe store, or private vacation rental property, and not Walmart is based upon a whim and an impulse, not facts or reason.  By legal standard a government’s actions are arbitrary and capricious when they are founded upon unreasonable grounds or made with without any proper consideration of circumstances, deny due process and prejudice substantial rights.  Therefore, the government’s exercise of authority in these Shelter In Place Orders to pick and choose which businesses can stay open and which cannot is by definition arbitrary and capricious.”

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

A well-reasoned article on the coronavirus outbreak, from Percy Carlton at thesaker.is:

Covid-19 Derangement Syndrome: A World Gone Mad

The whole world has gone mad with what I call Covid-19 Derangement Syndrome (CDS). I define it as an acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in response to the Covid-19 Corona Virus pandemic. The infection is particularly prevalent among the media and the government officials of the world. Human beings fear what they do not understand and that fear causes them to behave in irrational and destructive ways. The current Covid-19 pandemic is a perfect example of that. I don’t need to describe the paranoia and economic destruction to you because you can see it with your own two eyes everywhere you look. Both the media and the world’s governments are fueling the panic – the media with their hysterical 24/7 coverage and the governments with their draconian police state actions.

I feel like the man…

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”—Viktor Frankl

We still have choices.

Just because we’re fighting an unseen enemy in the form of a virus doesn’t mean we have to relinquish every shred of our humanity, our common sense, or our freedoms to a nanny state that thinks it can do a better job of keeping us safe.

Whatever we give up willingly now—whether it’s basic human decency, the ability to manage our private affairs, the right to have a say in how the government navigates this crisis, or the few rights still left to us that haven’t been disemboweled in recent years by a power-hungry police state—we won’t get back so easily once this crisis is past.

The government never cedes power willingly.

Neither…
