(Natural News) This article is part of a series of short, philosophical observations about the recent anti-gun hysteria and media PSYOP that exploits children to demand their own enslavement under authoritarianism.
Question: When the government death squads come for your loved ones, how will you stop them?
Anti-gun protesters are, almost without exception, utterly illiterate on the topic of history. If they studied any history at all, they would know that authoritarian regimes seeking to concentrate power always seek to disarm the citizenry first.
Once that's accomplished, government death squads can easily accomplish their task of eliminating all political opponents of the regime in power. Government "death squads" have, throughout history, routinely hunted down and murdered not just individuals but often entire families where even one person opposed the government leader. Given the number of insane left-wing people currently calling for the murder of President Trump and anyone associated with him, it's not at all difficult to imagine America's left-wing anti-gun lunatics condoning and even publicly supporting such death squads right here in America. (See UC Berkeley students openly call for the violent murder of conservatives.)
Following the death squad "cleansing" of the country, the regime rapidly becomes corrupt and more dangerous to the liberty and safety of all the people. After all, when there's no balance of power with the citizens being armed, there is no accountability on the part of the government in charge (which has monopolized control of the guns and therefore need not answer to anyone at all).
Gun control, it turns out, simply means the corrupt regime controls the guns. Any call for gun control is a call to concentrate absolute power in the hands of the most corrupt, power-hungry people in every society: Those who seek to rise to the highest levels of government and rule over everyone else.
By definition, government is the most dangerous entity when power is concentrated in its hands. That's precisely why gun control is so dangerous and so often leads to genocide. It's also why governments have murdered 262 million people in the 20th century alone, dwarfing all other causes of death, including disease.
