"them" live in the city. "us" lives in the burbs, and in the country.
we feed them. we clothe them. we provide them with the energy that keeps them from the cold, and the hot. with the food and fiber we raise, with the coal and oil we extract from our ground.
they tell us what to do, with their control over money and capital. they really don't provide "us" with much that is essential. i think that i can probably live without "tmz," ... , in fact, i am relatively certain of it.
they can make us poor.
we can starve them. pretty easily, and in pretty quick, and in very short order. it would take very little preparation. and, very few assets, other than some good steel cable and chain. "us" really do not need very much along the way of exotic explosives or weaponry, when it comes right down to it.
all we have to do in pinch their great arteries, cut off their water sources, and they are rioting and rotting in the streets.
they can send troops. we can kill them. and, we can destroy the viability of their great cities with remarkable ease. they haven't the grit to withstand being deprived of their latte's, let alone standing against siege, disease, and starvation.
mighty bold talk for a one-eyed fat man, you say?
you live in new york city? do you have any notion at all how your drinking water gets to you?
do you live in seattle? do you have any idea how you electricity and fuel oil get to you? your eggs? your poultry?
"us" has a cautionary note to sound to "them," as "them" contemplates restraining our liberties, of trimming back on our constitutional rights, those rights conferred upon us not by government, but by a heritage of blood and resistance to tyranny.
go ahead. you take the gamble and try and take away our liberties and rights, to replace them by "normative legal standards" imposed by the united nations. try and grab us by the neck, or slash at our necks, try to control us.
you will find that we are not powerless. you will find out that we can and will strike back, and that we can strangle you, stab you in the neck, with far greater alacrity than you ever suspected. i have an easy 10,000 square feet of garden space, as i glance out the porch window on my very very humble little house.
how much garden space do you, do "them," have outside the window of their glamorous high rise apartment. i can live quite easily and comfortable in a white canvas tent, with my coleman kitchen and cooking gear. how do you think "them" will do without electricity.
i can take out "them's" power grid with ridiculous ease.
think about it "them," if you really want to take "us" on.
you know what's funny? "them" is surrounded on all sides by "us." they cannot escape "us.". "us" are essential to "them," and "them" are next to worthless*** to "us." it would be no sacrifice at all to "us" to simply be rid of "them." on the other hand, without "us," "them" wither and die.
simple as that.

*** they are as worthless as tits on a boar hog. they know how to do nothing that is essential. to survival. which is what is comes to, if they wish to test us, to push us to a fight, if they try to impinge upon our right and privilege, to try and destroy our heritage.
