Rob Morse: Guerrilla Tactics in the Culture War- Part 3
First I want to thank you for your comments on this series. As I said in part 1 and part 2, we are in a cultural conflict where freedom is under attack on many fronts. I chose to talk about self-defense. Unfortunately, most conservative politicians are pacifists in this culture war.
If you don’t believe me, here is an example from last month where San Francisco imposed regulations designed to close the city’s last gun shop, the last gun store for a city of 800 thousand people! Believe me, the citizens of San Francisco are not all anti-gun liberals. In Southern California, Los Angeles gangs threatened to kill hundreds of people. The Los Angeles City Council responded by further disarming law abiding civilians. I gave you the links because I couldn’t believe it myself.
What could we do? In this culture war, people who love liberty should advocate for a better culture rather than sit passively as they lose their liberties one at a time. Self-defense is more than a right we tolerate. Self-defense is a virtue and we should actively support it.
What would we do if we really valued self-sufficiency and self-defense?
