Solutions Are Scary: Part 1 — It's Time To Bring Back Citizen Militias


The most common retort you will encounter from skeptics and dishonest people when it comes to discussing the issue of economic decline, social breakdown, and the proven conspiracy by globalist institutions to centralize power under the formation of a worldwide financial system and a world government, is that "It's all well and good to talk about the problems, but unless you can come up with solutions your analysis is irrelevant."

This is a classic disinformation tactic: Suggesting that the person who identified the problem must also solve the problem, otherwise they should not be taken seriously. It's obvious nonsense. Often solutions to economic and social decline require that masses of people become educated on the threats to organize to make changes, which requires talking about the problems. Talking about the danger is the solution (to a point).

In terms of conspiracy and tyranny, the solution is usually war and the elimination of the cabal. That requires talking about the problem and inspiring people to organize for the fight.

But what happens when you finally have the numbers to do something? I would partly agree that the conservatives, libertarians, independents, and moderates that makeup what I call the "Liberty Movement" tend to talk a lot more about the problems, to the point that solutions become lost in the fervor of discussion.

Over nearly 20 years of writing for the movement, I have noticed a consistent pattern. When I publish an article identifying a concerted attack on the U.S. economy, for example, the audience numbers run high. When I write an article about methods for preventing collapse, such as independent barter markets and localized production, the traffic is cut in half. The truth is, solutions are not sexy, they are scary.

People can become addicted to watching the system break down, and I realize it's hard to look away from a train wreck. But when it comes time to do something about the mess a lot of people run away.


This has to change. It is with this issue in mind that I am launching a series of articles focusing only on solutions. These are not silver-bullet solutions; they will not save people from struggle or hardship. They will not end the globalist empire with a single calculated social shift or technological innovation. Such solutions do not exist and anyone who claims otherwise is either ignorant or a fraud trying to lure you into complacency. The real solutions require hard work, sacrifice, courage, and tenacity.

If the solution to tyranny and collapse doesn't scare you, then it's probably not a solution.

And, if there is one solution that has been demonized more than any other in our modern era, it's the citizen militia. It's hard to think of a greater taboo, a more sneered at and disdained concept than the militia, and that's on both sides of the political aisle. Many leftists hate the militia because they fear it; many Republicans hate the militia because they think it makes them look "extreme." Sorry sunshine patriots, but if there was ever a time for extreme measures, it is now.

Why America Is About To End... Violently You see it every night on the news. America just isn't the same as it was. Do yourself a favor and check out this new film to learn how to protect yourself and your wealth here. Maybe it's a matter of public conditioning? Militias are the villains in every movie, every TV show, every book, and comic book. Articles in every major publication warn year after year of militias as the dark underbelly of American culture; a mode of organization for "racists" and "fascists" and most of all "terrorists." They are the bad guys, right? Who wants to be seen as a bad guy?

So, conservatives and libertarians stumble around trying to come up with ways to organize a physical defense against the encroachment of authoritarianism without actually calling these efforts a militia. It's understandable; the M-word has a stigma that was carefully crafted by the media over the course of decades. Say you are starting a "neighborhood watch" and people listen with an open mind. Say you are starting a militia, and people see images of fat rednecks playing Batman in the woods with their butt cracks hanging out (rednecks are some of my favorite people, by the way). They shut down immediately, and they might not even know why. It's because they have been trained to react this way.

The establishment media has been so hostile to the militia concept over the years because they fear patriot organization more than anything else. They want people isolated from each other, focused only on their own preparedness efforts but constantly vulnerable due to their limited ability to project defense or offense. If you are alone, your circle of security is your house and your front door – you are doomed. If you are part of a militia, your circle of security is your town, or your county, or perhaps even your entire state. You now have a chance to survive and stay free.

There will be people who argue that a militia solution is impossible because in order for such groups to be constitutionally legal they must be approved by the state government they reside in. This argument misses the greater concern, which is that militias need to exist whether they are approved or not. State cooperation should be pursued, but this is dependent on the honor of that government. If they are not cooperative and are not honorable then citizens will have to organize anyway.

I do foresee some red state governors taking action to form militias. I'm not the type of person who thinks every single political leader is "controlled." If that were true then all the red states would have continued the COVID lockdowns and tried to enforce vaccine passports as the blue states did. Instead, they fought back. I'll give credit where credit is due.

If any governors are reading this now, I would suggest that they seriously consider stepping up efforts to bring back the constitutional militia system in their state. These groups are going to form eventually anyway, adding some legitimacy through the state would defuse a lot of conflicts in the future. And I'll tell you this, if you truly believe in freedom and the American ideal, there will come a time when you will have to lean on the common citizenry to maintain the security of your state. Not just from corrupt adversaries at the federal level, but from foreign invasion (illegal immigration) as well as rioting and looting by leftist groups within your own cities. Don't wait until it's too late.

If a state government is not willing to back legally recognized militias, then it may be possible to organize at the county level. I would even say that the first county government to do this will start a firestorm and hundreds of other counties will follow their example. All it takes is one to step forward. The same goes for state militias.

What would be the purpose of these militias? To act as a deterrent to forces with ill intent, first and foremost. We cannot allow the federal government and establishment elites to have a monopoly on the ability to project violence. If we do, then the country will be enslaved eventually. And though I have faith in the power of asymmetric tactics, the 50 million+ gun owners now active in the U.S. could be far more effective if they were working together to utilize those tactics. They would certainly offer a much more imposing obstacle to the elites.

Deterrence is the best possible defense. Secondly, there is ample defense training going on all over America and there are millions of serious shooters here. Dare I say, there are more serious shooters here than in all other countries combined. And by "serious shooters" I mean truly dangerous shooters that can do extensive damage to an enemy. However, there is virtually no large unit training going on right now; everything is aimed at personal defense and sometimes small unit tactics. Militias would be useful in teaching Americans how to fight as a larger force if necessary. But of course that would be "paramilitary training" and that would be "bad."

Finally, I think it's time to draw the line in terms of the course our country is taking. Political efforts rarely bear fruit. One surprising exception was the COVID lockdowns. It's a good thing we had so many conservative governors willing to end the mandates and stop the madness at the state level. So, yeah, voting can do some good, but it should not be relied upon to save us. There needs to be organization beyond political parties into the realm of active problem-solving and security.

Millions of citizens sitting around doing nothing while waiting 2-4 years to drop a ballot in a box is not a solution to our current predicament.

The old disinformation arguments will surely surface in response to the militia idea. They will say that a militia wouldn't stand a chance against a tyrannical government backed by a modern military and your "AR-15 is useless against an F-16." The Taliban in Afghanistan has something to say about that, just as guerrilla groups have had something to say about that for generations. There's not a military on the planet that can take on 50 million+ gun owners, they would run out of ordnance long before patriots ran out of people.

But beyond that, we have to ask the question yet again: Why are they so intent on dismantling 2nd Amendment rights and stopping the return of militias if these things are not a threat to their power? If gun owners could be wiped out by a handful of drones and tanks, then why haven't they done this already and rounded us all up? The reason is clear. Because if the establishment starts that fight, they know there's a chance they could lose. If they are afraid of unorganized and isolated patriots now, imagine how afraid the technocrats would be if we reestablished militias...
