The ongoing Bundy Ranch controversy is a test, and we’re the ones being tested.
Never before in human history have a people just voluntarily laid down their liberty and property without bloodshed. The statists know this, which is why they’ve spent the last generation investing heavily in conquering media, academia, and pop culture. They’re hoping those influential platforms can condition us to become so numbed out and dumbed down that we won’t even notice when our liberty is gone. Or that by the time we do it will be too late.
Bundy Ranch is a test case to see if their plans have sufficiently silenced us or not, because in this day and age of alternative media and viral marketing they can’t rely on mainstream media to spin another Waco or Randy Weaver story for them. Especially since the Bundy family are more sympathetic figures than either of those two stories were back then, and the country has become much less trusting of government than it was back then as well.
The statists want to see if there’s still enough of us willing to stand up to them if they try and apply their boot to our throat. In Nevada over the weekend they didn’t get the answer they were hoping for, obviously, so they have decided to stand down. Translation: they’ll wait us out until we’re bored with the story and moved on to something else, and that’s when the hammer will drop. So expect another “coming out” party for a pro athlete or a celebrity sex scandal soon to replenish the Idiocracy.
