Are We Prepared to Survive? *1* Know Your Enemy!
September 11, 2013 in Preparedness
In warfare, there are three things to know. Sun-Tzu in “The Art of War” teaches everyone to know yourself, know your enemy and know your terrain (environment). There is another thing to learn, and that is to know God. The “Art of War” also recognizes the last, but it is written in a manner that was their best understanding of God for their time. I recommend everyone who is serious about their survival read this book.
Much has been written, filmed and discussed about the enemies of our Liberty. I would think that most everyone reading this here possesses a tremendous amount of knowledge concerning this topic. The focus of these articles is not the enemies of Liberty. The intent is to strengthen ourselves and others in the neglected areas of 1. Know Yourself and 2. Know Your Environment. The Christian Bible is infinitely more adequate than I am in the final endeavor of knowing God. The Bible is another good book to read.
Before we get into these things, there are a few things concerning the enemy, which I believe are overlooked by most people who are informed.
Dr. Fred Schwarz wrote an excellent book called “You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists)”. During WW2 an Australian patient of his was convinced that American servicemen were intent on poisoning him. This man later killed two American officers with a shotgun and was convicted of criminal insanity. These Americans held no ill will toward this Australian, yet they were violently killed. Why? The Australian man believed a lie. He believed they would somehow poison him. Dr. Fred Schwarz demonstrates that it does not take two to make a fight. A lie in the mind of another is enough. The same is true for Communism. Is the same true for the New World Order? Is it true for environmentalists?
Mao Tse-Tung makes an interesting statement in his 1937 book “Guerilla Warfare”.
“The war that we are fighting today for the emancipation of the Chinese is a part of the war for the freedom of all human beings, and the independent, happy, and liberal China that we are fighting to establish will be a part of that new world order. A conception like this is difficult for the simple-minded militarist to grasp and it must therefore be carefully explained to him.”
Although this was translated by Brigadier General Samuel B. Griffith USMC (Ret.) from Chinese into English, I do find this to be a most familiar choice of words. There are many better books on guerilla warfare to read than Mao’s.
Dr. Fred Schwarz later explains Communist methodology that should be understood by everyone. The first act of Communist power is to disarm the people. Since Communist force generates revolt, the Communists systematically destroy the potential leadership of resistance before resistance can organize. All individuals with leadership qualities are destroyed. Pro/Anti Communists alike are destroyed. Those with qualities of leadership which could be used when people awaken to Communist tyranny and resist are systematically destroyed. Please give this some consideration.
The systematic destruction of individuals with leadership potential did not originate in Hollywood movies. It did not originate with the Communists. It did not originate with King Herod, when he attempted to kill Jesus Christ. It goes much further back in history.
Much has been discussed about governments spying on citizens. Does it really matter to these unlawful spies and their illegal super-structured espionage centers, that citizens are lawful and peaceful? Are they spying for the purposes of national security? I doubt it. I also suspect something more sinister than blackmail.
1. Tyranny wants to push just hard enough to avert massive resistance and then back off. All the data gathered on citizens serves this function. They can push tyranny up to the point of massive resistance and then back away before resistance begins.
2. When tyranny is obvious to everyone, the potential leadership of future resistance will be targeted. All the data gathered on citizens serves this function. When they push their tyranny too far and citizens begin to resist, potential leaders will be targeted.
Let’s review some things. It does not take two to make a fight. A lie in the mind of another is sufficient. Indeed, a lie is a dangerous thing.
Tyrants seek to disarm their intended victims.
Tyrants seek to destroy potential leadership before resistance can organize.
Tyrants seek to ascertain their ability to push tyranny without awakening their victims.
The purpose of rogue governments to inflict unlawful espionage against citizens goes beyond the obvious motives of blackmail. Even if you were to believe that government is benign, do you think it will always remain so?
The truth is an effective weapon against those who are not willfully deceived by lies.
Now that we have a better understanding of the enemies of Liberty, let’s begin to focus on what we can do to know more about ourselves and our environment. Let’s prepare to Survive!
