A lot of freedom advocates go out of their way to avoid talking about violent resistance to tyranny. Understandable, they'd rather just use words, win hearts and minds, and try to outlast the current police state garbage going on. But in a way, I think this is a huge mistake.
No, it's not because I just can't wait to kill someone. Even if it is completely justified, I suspect that killing another human being would be a really horrible thing to have to do. I've made it this far without ever being in a real fight, and I hope that holds true for the rest of my life. However, I think the discussion of forced resistance to "legal" evil is of utmost importance.
To say, or to imply, that we never want to resist by force, carries with it the implication that resisting "legal" aggression is actually immoral. Obviously, resisting the control freaks is hazardous, and usually a bad idea practically speaking, but to say that it's actually wrong to resist logically implies that they have the moral right to do whatever they want to us. Even if we go along with control freaks out of self-preservation, the primary message that people need to understand is that rhetoric about "government," and "authority," and "law," cannot make bad into good, or good into bad. "Legal" aggression and extortion is just as immoral as the "illegal" kind, and resisting it is just as righteous (albeit a lot more dangerous).
Of course--of course, of course, of course--I would prefer that humanity chooses peaceful coexistence, and that there isn't violence and bloodshed on the way there. But concepts of self-ownership and a voluntary society are intertwined with the right of self-defense, even against attackers who call their aggression "law." If we cannot discuss that, because we find the topic too unpleasant (which, of course, the idea of killing people is), then we are not sending a complete, consistent message regarding freedom.
So, with that in mind, here is a link to my latest YouTube video, titled "Shooting Cops," which I'm guessing is going to stir up the hornets nest once again. But it needs to be stirred.
