Liberty - Alexander had it...because he took it.
This post should not be taken as a personal rebuke of the recent conversations had on below posts or regarding any of the participants.
I take the position that I have a Natural Right to Jefferson's definition of Rightful Liberty.
I take the position that any deliberate infringement of that Rightful Liberty is an infringement I have no duty or obligation to avoid or tolerate. It is not my responsibility to make sure you behave yourself.
I take the position that any direct action to infringe my Rightful Liberty morally entitles me, under Natural Law, to be rid of that infringement by any means necessary. I do not believe Natural Law holds me to any standard of Proportionate Response.
I take the position that any Human Being who aids and abets the infringement of my Rightful Liberty is equally responsible for that infringement as the person who is directly infringing. If a Trooper points a pistol at my head in an attempt to violate my Rightful Liberty, and doing so as a result of the orders given by a Commanding Officer, both are responsible and both legitimate targets of my self defense, even if I must travel a thousand miles to find your Commanding Officer and put a knife in his neck while he sleeps in his bed next to his wife.
I take the position that the politician who voted for the law that improperly brought that Commanding Officer into my life, and the Trooper with the pistol at my head, is equally guilty of attempting to infringe my Rightful Liberty.
The Voter who voted for that politician is equally guilty. The clerk in the politicians office who helps him accomplish his daily tasks of infringing Rightful Liberty, is equally guilty. The auto mechanic working at the LEO carpool that kept the Trooper's vehicle operational so he could come to my house and stick the muzzle of his weapon in my face is equally guilty.
Do you understand?
It is MY Rightful Liberty. It is MY duty to defend it. If you try to take it, if you play any role in trying to take it, you are guilty of trying to deprive my Rightful Liberty given to me by Natural Law.
Jim Klein is correct, mens rea is a principle to be heeded by any man with a conscience. The Trooper holding the pistol to my head, his Commanding Officer, and the Politician are absolutely guilty of attempting to unjustly infringe my Rightful Liberty. In their Souls there is no innocence. The clerk who delivers the warrant from office A to office B is guily, she is a cog in the machinery that allows it to happen, but she is guilty to a lesser degree.
But the voter...
The voter empowers it all. A voter in San Francisco helped to bring that Trooper to my sphere, and to point that muzzle at my head, risked my future and the future of my wife, because that voter is, at best, stupid. At worst, an ideological Marxist to some degree, people who believe they have a Right to a portion of my Rightful Liberty.
I challenge all of you who claim the title Patriot: Figure this out in your Soul now. Do not make Lincoln's mistake and leave too many Enemies on the field.
Alexander never had to look to his rear.
Let us be done with this once and for all.
Alexander is the only hope for Liberty.
