A Black Lives Matter activist/revolutionary has died.
Her other comrade in the BLM/Antifa Revolution to destroy America is still in critical condition: she is not expected to live.
They were both standing in the middle of a freeway in Seattle, which was I-5, which is a major expressway, when they were ran over. They were both trying and hoping to bring down the constitutional republic in which we all live. She was, and her Black Lives Matter Comrades still are; Enemies of America. The enemies of everything that is right, wholesome and good.
Seattle’s New Che Guevara
Of course the driver has been arrested, and they are not showing his face so we can all assume he belongs to the tribe of Diversity.
But some haunting questions still nag me…
Where are the police?
Why were dozens of people and vehicles allowed to blockade a major interstate highway in Seattle? What about public safety? Who, in the end, is really responsible for this young woman’s death? The driver? (Who they have not identified.) Or the law enforcement authorities who we pay to keep us safe? Why have the police abandoned the streets and allowed death and destruction to flourish unimpeded?
Thousands of years ago we came together and formed governments because we grew tired of sleeping with our swords under our pillows, with one eye still open and policing ourselves. We knew then, and have largely forgotten now, that even the most imperfect, corrupt, unjust, “racist,” police force is better than the alternative which is this;
Bellum omnium contra omnes
A war of all, against all.
Hereby it is manifest that during the time men live without a common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called War; and such a war as is of every man against every man.
In such condition there is no place for Industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continual Fear, and danger of violent death; And the life of man solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short. Thomas Hobbes, 1651
Time to revisit Klaatu’s Speech
It strikes as supreme irony that a fictional character, in a fictional science fiction film from 1951 can speak such truth to us today.
As you watch Black Lives Matter and Antifa lay waste to this once great nation, as the local, state, and federal police stand by like impotent stone statues as they watch it all burn down, think about what Klaatu said in the film, The Day The Earth Stood Still.
I am leaving soon and you’ll forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day and the threat of aggression by any group anywhere can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all or no one is secure. Now this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly. Your ancestors knew this when they made laws to govern themselves and hired policemen to enforce them. We, of the other planets, have long accepted this principle. We have an organization for the mutual protection of all planets and for the complete elimination of aggression. The test of any such higher authority is, of course, the police force that supports it. For our policemen we created a race of robots. Their function is to patrol the planets in spaceships like this one and preserve the peace. In matters of aggression we have given them absolute power over us. This power cannot be revoked. A t the first signs of violence they act automatically against the aggressor. The penalty for provoking their action is too terrible to risk. The result is we live in peace without arms or armies, secure in the knowledge that we are free from aggression and war, free to pursue more profitable enterprises. Now, we do not pretend to have achieved perfection, but we do have a system, and it works. I came here to give you these facts. It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet, but if you threaten to extend your violence, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder. Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you.
“There MUST be security for all, or no one is secure.”
“Your ancestors knew this when they made laws to govern themselves and hired policemen to enforce them”
Please note two things:
First, Klaatu’s policeman enforcement robot “Gort” is described exactly as Thomas Hobbes described his ideal government ruler in his book Leviathan written in 1651. Hobbes wanted a strong, central government, not a “liberal democracy” to keep citizens safe and secure from harm; much as the fictional Gort is described in the film, The Day The Earth Stood Still.
Two, notice the faces of the crowd that Klaatu is addressing in his final speech before leaving Earth. Every race, every nation, every faith, and every culture is represented in his film scene. Everyone needed to hear this speech: not just Americans.
This is THE speech that Donald Trump needs to give to all Americans as he invokes the Insurrection Act and deploys federal troops and police to restore order put BLM and Antifa leaders in prison. (I doubt that will happen; but it is what he NEEDS to do.)
Here is the video of Klaatu’s Speech.
