A very long time ago, back in the stone ages of blogging, author Marko Kloos wrote a blog post entitled “Why the gun is civilization.” It was a great piece, and while there were others who later took credit for it, it was and is brilliant. The part of that post that is relevant to our discussion today is the beginning:

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

Marko Kloos, Why the gun is civilization

The reason that it’s relevant today is this new trend being practiced by the left: denial. By that term, I mean the occupation by force of some venue, location, or service which by its nature deprives others of that item being occupied. The location could be gluing themselves to the floor of a basketball game, to a busy highway, to government office buildings, or even to a Picasso in Australia, a Van Gough and other pieces in the UK, and even to commuter trains. These protesters block highways, they even block ambulances and others from accessing emergency care at hospitals.

What these people are doing is using force, not persuasion, to deny others access to things like art, cultural events, travel, and even necessary medical care. They are stealing it and refusing to return it. The only response to someone taking something by force, is respond with the same level of force.

Stop letting the minority force their temper tantrums upon all of us by allowing them to steal things from us all because they cannot persuade others to do what they want us to do.

Not to mention the use of force by the governments that support these social thugs (refusal to intervene and punish) and will use gov force against you if you do anything against the thugs.

The correction will not come till many have nothing left to lose. Those people are to damn busy right now trying to take care of their loved ones.

“The only response to someone taking something by force, is respond with the same level of force.”

You misspelled “completely disproportionate”.

I don’t understand the logic of automatically going to the trouble of UNgluing nuts from whatever. Except maybe roadways, but even then, if there is an alternative route of access, leave ’em be. Monitor them; let ’em shit in their pants after a day. They aren’t under arrest, so there is no duty to feed them. Just wait. After pain, hunger, sunburn, filth, and disgust with oneself all set in and they finally figure out a way to free themselves, even if it means tearing skin, THEN arrest them and haul them off.

Yes, get them loose when others’ access is hugely important, but an investment of some level of inconvenience may pay off in the long run.

    Can we let the savages know where they glued? Da brothas are getting tired of chaising down victims and want some penned ones.

Marko Kloos… excellent writer. Check out his “Frontlines” series (free w/the Kindle Unlimited on Bezozon).

    Won’t touch his stuff after sad puppies.

I’d like to give them a plant-based future whereby they are run through a woodchipper, then used for mulch.

After watching this shit on a daily basis during the summer of 2020, and what groups like antifa continue to do, the left has shifted the paradigm on protesting. Property destruction, assault, blocking roads is all SOP for them now. It will take cleaning out the DAs in most cities before any of it improves. They keep doing this shit because there are no consequences.
