Freedom Conference: The Way of Wise Rebellion
Session 4, Freedom Conference, 2016, Tucumcari, NM. Bojidar Marinov. So, you’ve decided you have a duty to resist tyrants. Great! Now, don’t be an idiot. There’s a difference between wise and unwise rebellion. Here is a lot of practical advice about getting it right.
“. . . we need to go back to the real meaning of the Second Amendment. What was the historical context of the Amendment and of the Bill of Rights in general? What particular philosophical and ideological terms were at the foundation of the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights in general? Who were the people who were granted the rights? Who was the “antagonist,” the entity against which the rights were to be exercised?
All these questions are very important, and all these have been answered incorrectly by modern liberals in their gun-grabbing attempts. But the real problem is, conservatives have been just as bad in interpreting the Second Amendment – and it is their failure to read it for what it is is what led to our present loss of individual rights. Yes, folks, it is not the liberals, it is the conservatives’ failure that our rights have been taken away little by little. Had conservatives been consistent and faithful to the real meaning of the Amendment, we wouldn’t be here today.”
