Alongside Night 2020

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”

~ Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1775

Many years ago, a friend of mine, the late J. Neil Schulman, wrote a book Alongside Night which is about what is happening right now. The old ways of doing things have failed and systems are falling apart. New ways of doing things have been showing up for quite a while.

Earlier this century, Neil asked me to help him find investors for making a film out of his book. I was not able to do very much to help. There was a lot of economic turmoil. Many people I worked with had no money to invest. Neil made his film anyway.

My purpose in this essay is to talk to the younger people who may read what I’m writing. While people my age may set in motion some events, and will live through them knowing in parts what to expect, children and young adults will also live through these events. More importantly, you will live with the consequences of what happens.

So, let me be clear. I want Americans to be free. I want Americans to live as they choose. My purpose is to help people free their minds from mental slavery. My purpose is to encourage people to be in charge of their own destinies. I want that for everyone.

Truly, everyone in the world. I have travelled in Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America and have friends in Australasia and South America. But I was born here in the United States, and in my travels I’ve looked for a free country. There aren’t any.

To have a free country, one has to start somewhere. I say here is good.

Why? I say America is fertile ground for freedom because here we have not given up our guns. Here we have the tradition of reciting the Declaration of Independence at school assemblies, which children did when I was in grade school. Yes, that was a long time ago, I’m really old.

Americans have a bill of rights and it has a lot of good ideas in it. America has science fiction writers like L. Neil Smith whose book The Probability Broach was a life changing book for me when I was still in high school. It is not yet a film, but it is a graphic novel. Authors like J. Neil Schulman, Victor Koman, Robert Heinlein, and many others have written dozens of books showing free people living in a great future.

Perhaps most important, America was a frontier. People who chose to come here from Europe wanted to get away from controlling governments and busy-body neighbours. People who moved away from the east coast of the USA often had the same motive. People on frontiers who were not independent and willing to work hard often found it hard to survive. Very hardy people went West and flourished.

There is a culture of freedom here in America.

Of course, there is also a culture of control. There are people who view themselves as “elite” and think that their expensive college educations and graduate degrees or their connexions to very old dynasties of rich people give them special status. They have, especially since 1898, done a great deal to corruptly seize power, manipulate newspapers and television, crowd out the independent parts of the Internet, and work against the freedom of Americans.

Why? I think there are two big reasons and many small ones. First, it is extremely lucrative. The government has trillions of dollars to spend and the people with corrupt friends in government are able to get lots of money for themselves and their companies. Power over other people and power to control who gets to be successful in an industry are very attractive to certain kinds of people. Power and wealth have the ability to corrupt people, and great power attracts very corrupt people.

The second big reason is that some people believe in the tired and foolish ideas of Thomas Malthus. These ideas led to the thinking of Frederick Taylor who wanted a managed society. These same ideas were prevalent in the writings of Jean Jacques Rousseau and others. Their ideology is one of hierarchy and control, so the few can rule the many. The few get the best of everything.

Some of these ideas go back to Plato who wrote a book, The Republic, in which he talked about a society rigidly structured and led by “philosopher kings” who would be very well trained and educated and, Plato felt, suited to ruling everyone else. For a great many reasons, I think this ideology is poorly conceived, based on flawed ideas about human behaviour, and a lot of nonsense meant to support what its proponents want: power and wealth for them, submission and suffering for everyone else.

In order to organise themselves to gain power, a number of secret societies were founded long ago. You can research the Illuminati, the Scottish Rite Freemasons, and Jeffrey Epstein on your own. Some of the people who have great power do really terrible things. Some of those things were done very visibly and very publicly in April 1993 at a place called Mount Carmel near Waco, Texas. Terrible things were also done at a place called Ruby Ridge in Idaho.

During the present century wars have been going on all over the world. Americans who have fought in these wars, including many friends of mine, have learned that much of the reasoning behind the wars is to seize gold, protect oil fields, and ensure the supplies of a cartel supplying drugs like opium all over the world. They say the wars are for G.O.D. which stands for gold, oil, and drugs.

In order to make all these things possible for the controlling self-styled “elite” a system called the Federal Reserve was created in 1913. It was signed into law by a racist named Woodrow Wilson. I say he was a racist because he segregated the civil service, brought Jim Crow laws to Washington DC, said terrible things about people from Mexico and Germany, and did many other bad things. Wilson created the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Black Chamber which spied on Americans with help from Western Union and AT&T, and tried to get Americans to snitch on their neighbours during World War One.

The long history of these events is basically a history of abuses and usurpations. That’s a phrase from the Declaration of Independence. These abuses of power and usurpations of our freedom have shown that there is a design to reduce Americans under the brutal rule of abject tyranny.

Last month the governments of the states and the federal government began putting millions of people out of work, forcing them to close their stores, forcing them to stop going to work, told them their jobs were not essential.

The truth is that all jobs and all businesses are essential to the people who depend on their job and their business to survive. The time has come to stop obeying.

There are only about 180,000 police in the United States. There are tens of millions now out of work, and tens of thousands of businesses that are closed. If you re-open your business and you’re the only one, the cops will come and close you up. If you re-open your business and everyone else in your community does the same thing, you outnumber the police.

On the 19th of April in 1775, men in Massachusetts opened fire on British troops at Lexington, at Concord bridge, and then all the way back to Boston. Americans won their independence by defying authority.

If Americans want to be free, they should re-open their businesses on 19 April 2020 and keep them open thereafter. If Americans want to be free, they should go to work on 19 April 2020 anywhere they can. If Americans want to be free, they should invite their friends over for a party on 19 April 2020. If Americans want to be free, they should keep and bear arms on the 19th of April and every day thereafter.

But What About Gramma?

No, I don’t hate the elderly, no I don’t want anyone to make other people sick. Nothing about this virus is ever going to go away because there are 370 trillion viruses all around you all the time, 60 trillion bacteria in and around your body, and only 6 trillion body cells. This virus is just like any other virus, except perhaps it was designed to have 1000x (three orders of magnitude) more effectiveness at binding with the human genome. Learn more about this topic from Derrick Broze and Dr. Shiva.

It was used in China to end the protests against the authorities in Hong Kong. It was used in China to go around and gather up the dissidents, beat them, torture them, and harvest their organs. If you allow it to be used to force you to take ID2020, then Bill Gates is ready to make trillions of dollars ear tagging seven billion people and killing as many of them as disobey.

The World Health Organisation is run by an ardent Maoist communist who wants to enslave humanity. So is the Speaker of the House.

In order for them to force you into slavery, you have to obey them. So, don’t obey them. Your chains: break them.

You have the power to refuse. You have the power to dance at a party when you wanna dance. You have the power to have a party when you choose. You have the right to peaceably assemble and to practice your religion. So, worship as you please, party as you please, keep and bear arms, and stand up for your freedom.

These freedoms are described in some detail in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth amendments to the constitution, and the powers are described in the tenth amendment. These ten amendments are called the bill of rights because they discuss the rights of the people. The bill of rights was added to the constitution because Anti-Federalists like Patrick Henry wanted to prevent the constitution from destroying their freedom. They were somewhat successful, for a while.

If you want to live free, if you want your children to live free, now is the time to stop listening to the same people who have been lying to you for generations, for over a century, since the Hearst media lied the country into the Spanish American war in 1898.

If you want to lick the boots of the statists, believe the operators of the protected cartel in restraint of trade in healthcare who claim to be the medical profession (and are doing massive harm to tens of millions of Americans right now), believe the academics who want a communist or “democratic socialist” revolution led by people like them, then continue as you were.

I won’t stop anyone who would crouch down and lick the hand that feeds them. I only say that they may be beaten by that hand repeatedly, may be put in shackles that chafe and itch, may have wounds that become infected, and may suffer a long time. Being a willing slave is not very American.

Have a party. Set off fireworks. Open your business. Bring your friends around with their guns to watch out for you. Keep and bear arms. Don’t take the orders of the police and don’t go home when you are told. Rebel.

Organise your friends and family. Prepare for the consequences of open rebellion. But rebel. Make them back down.

If you won’t stand up, they’ll run over all your freedom forever. If you will stand up, you have the ability to make them back down.

It’s that time. Igloo luau.
