In my very early days in the Libertarian movement I encountered a publication entitled The Libertarian Handbook 1973 (Vincent McCaffrey and Mark Frazier, editors; published by Avenue Victor Hugo, Boston, Massachusetts). It was a useful catalog/guide of organizations, services, publications, and related pre-Internet networking tools. It also had a few essays or articles of a philosophical bent. One of these has firmly stuck in my mind since I first read it decades ago. It vigorously put forth the case that the Libertarian movement would remain merely a side show academic exercise or parlor game until it focused upon the real nature of the military hierarchical command structure of obedience and deference to higher authority of the National Security State. Until legions of Libertarian “George Pattons” within the military who seriously took their Oath of Allegiance “to defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic” arose to challenge state usurpation and tyranny — the movement would remain impotent and sterile.
Talk about cognitive dissonance or contradictory concepts to grasp!
Libertarians throughout history have been in the forefront of the anti-militarist tradition, opposed to standing armies and imperial aggression and aggrandizement. Would the very survival and defense of the diminished remnants of the American republic from a deep state “fifth column” coup d’état come down to championing a counter-coup by an Oliver Cromwell and his military cohort as republican defenders of rights and liberties against this globalist leviathan?
Since September 11, 2001 the Constitution of the United States has been suspended and we have been operating under extra-constitutional Continuity of Government.
This is no longer an idle or academic question to casually ignore.
The existential day of reckoning under the usurper Biden administration has arrived. Massive widespread implementation of duplicitous “woke” changes in the orientation and make-up of the military hierarchal command structure of obedience and servile deference to higher authority of the National Security State is occurring, coupled with belligerent calls for putting this mechanism on a war footing, marshalling for eminent intervention abroad. It is something that everyone must give high priority of serious reflection and commitment to action.
