Violence is not inherently a moral wrong.
Some men need killing.
There is a difference between saving face
and defending Honor. In either circumstance
one may invoke violence as a tool. Of course,
self defense is always a justifiable moment for
There is a legitimate use of violence in defense of
Honor, yet too often we invoke Honor as an excuse
for violence that was not warranted. There is
justifiable violence for saving face, too, but the
distinction between Honor and saving face is
important if for no other reason than intellectual
Saving face is most often a function of Ego.
Man is a better animal as he works to refine the
Ego. Violence to save face is not always
inappropriate. Consider the leader of a III
fire team being called a coward by a blood-thirsty
team member for pulling the plug on an Op because
the collateral damage would be too high. A
backhand across the teeth will go a long way to
maintaining discipline and unit cohesion.
But make no mistake, this is a matter of saving
face, not Honor.
There are three requisites for Honor: Justice,
Courage and Obligation. If all three aspects
are not present, you are not dealing with Honor.
If you have chosen to live with Honor as a
fundamental aspect of your lifestyle it is important
to quickly and properly gauge each interaction
before committing to a course of violence in the
name of Honor. You injure the concept and your
moral health in violence without just cause.
Justice: The concept is so simple that any
definition takes away from the premise. Is
violence right or wrong for the circumstance?
Courage: If violence is justified, you must find the
courage to act. Sometimes, it is no small
thing to thrust yourself into violence. If you
are not a professionally violent person (in a job
that involves violence), or if real violence is not
a serious hobby (such as a martial arts practitioner
or weekend bar room brawler), then physical violence
is sufficiently far from your typical frame of
reference that you may need to overcome our
self-preservation instincts before you can get your
feet to move toward the fight.
There is no shame here. Violence is serious
business, with potentially life-altering or
life-ending ramifications just moments away.
Fear is Mother Nature's way of warning us that we
may want to reconsider...Courage is acting in the
face of fear, when morally called upon.
Obligation: This is the third facet of Honor and the
one most often neglected or misunderstood.
Before one may enter violence in the name of Honor,
there must be an obligatory relationship.
A husband has a moral obligation to defend his wife
and children. This is the clearest example.
For the Samurai there was a greater obligation to
one's Daimyo (warlord) than even to the family.
To whom, or what, are you obligated? To whom,
or what, are you morally obligated to offer violence
when a threat comes to bear? This is a
question each Patriot must answer for himself.
Then, you must prioritize.
Then you must get it all clear in your mind.
Usually when the need for violence arrives, there is
little or no warning. You will likely not have
much time to philosophically analyze and assess.
Once you have committed to fighting you can not
Many patriotic Americans are torn because there are
conflicting obligations in play. I define as a
Patriot any American who feels a moral obligation to
defend the Constitution and Founding Principles of
the republic. Whether you have ever formally
taken the oath of a soldier or politician to
support and defend, whether you were born here
or not, you are a Patriot if you feel bound by the
same oath. Patriots watch as our nation is
being murdered, we are outraged and driven by love
of country to engage and defend Her.
But the prudent human animal understands that every
fight should be entered as a death fight. If
you are not willing to kill or die for whatever the
premise of the fight may be, you shouldn't be
The Patriot who recklessly engages those who would
be our Masters will assuredly bring ruin and peril
not only upon himself, but also his family.
Understanding this reality, most Patriots limit
their actions to blogs, rallies, books, and other
oblique, low intensity challenges.
But the frustration grows. On our current
course, there will come a moment when a majority of
Patriots determine that the threat to their family
by our Masters has risen to a point that warrants
the risk of real engagement.
Patriots will step from their homes and families,
motivated by an Obligation to Country, supported by
Justice and Courage, and the fight will be one
of genuine Honor.
We are the III Percent.
There will be allies at your shoulder who fight for
reasons other than obligation. Identify these
people and their motivations, so that these people
are properly marginalized when the time comes for
Restoration. Those lacking a genuine love of
country have no place at the table when it matters.
Our enemies lack the moral conviction that drives
the Patriot. They put love of self ahead of
Country. Selfish men can pull a trigger and
kill you, to be certain. But a man possessed
of moral righteousness and the warmth of knowing
that dying is better than surrendering the
principles of the republic will prevail in the face
of lesser men. You have more for which to
fight, kill...and die.
Do you feel obligated to defend the Founding
Principles of the republic, just because you were
If not, you are not worthy of living among us, and
you certainly have no claim to the title of III
comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common
Excerpt: The Bill
of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that
are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately
ours as human beings. These rights may not be taken from
us. These rights were written in plain language so that no
clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was
possible. These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or
infringed. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the
relationship between Man and Creator.
restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed
upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is
simply a violation of our natural rights.
We hold that every
violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in
Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are
unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our
republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government,
and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.
Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on
behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of
Liberty and humanity.
