“Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.”― G. Michael Hopf, Those Who Remain
7 things to DO For “Less Talk More Action!”
First, my Ingratiating PREFACE:
There’s a darkness in me that stirs and wiggles, within the deepest depths of my psyche, as I sleep at night.
This has been going on for about 5 months…
It’s the knowingness, now, that my own manly-brethren, my own gender (some of them as confused as lumbersexuals in Portlandia) are trapped inside a content-hurricane; a glut of information (this email included) that makes them seem more like The Walking Dead than any kick-ass character from the T.V. series Yellowstone.
It’s as if, collectively, we Men have forgotten… well… how to be f*ckin MEN.
It would be very easy for me to sit here (on my white-male privileged ass) and shame those doing what I so often, also, do:
Spend way too much effort in digging-up the “problems” out there — from political quackery, out-of-whack social norms, governmental-sociopathy, etc. (hell, those rants and briefings are all over my blog) — and passing them along like a drunk sailor passing along his next “conquest story” at the bar.
No, I won’t shame my fellow man today. I am grateful that I have the resources and freedom to DO what I do. But, still, I’m beginning to feel sick that something is missing from Yours truly.
So, today, I will ask my fellow hombre (an open public request of sorts) to consider something, while looking in the mirror:
Am I allowing what I share online, or pass along to a friend, to take the place of my innate instinct to SOLVE problems? To act?
Is me festering inside a shit-load of info online making me metaphorically soft?
Way before Van Halen put this in a song, my grandfather, H.P. Goss, used to walk around his property (oddly as I’m in the middle of cutting wood) muttering to the air:
It must of had something to do with all the fairies around him, in town, quibbling about the radical left who were “overtaking our freedoms.” Yes, as far back as the early 80’s, men were still griping and whining about so and so on the news, or asking for a hush-hush huddle session about the latest plot to overtake the world.
Well, hell, I thought then…
I, at 15 years old, wanted to hear the latest theory or fact-finding mission my grandpa’s pestering peeps had to share with him in the most presumptuously unsolicited way.
If they were that passionate about the next piece of info, or secret doctrine nobody is really paying attention to, well.. for shits sake…. I wanted in on the secrets too. And, damn, this was way before The X-Files made that quest cool.
Upon reading Mike Dillard’s email in September, titled How To Defend Freedom (key excerpt below), it occurred to me that more reading, more scans of YouTube vids, more conjecture about the evils that control society…
More, more, more — at least for we Men who, again, have a built-in desire to fix and solve issues — can turn into less, less, less… very easily if we don’t STOP and assess our time and priorities.
Please, Dear brother (pass this on to a Man in your life if you’re a gal reading this), understand what I’m writing here. Sitting around talking, sharing shit online, playing video games, and sucking-up your precious talents online…
It doesn’t mean you’re doing what you DO best. It simply just creates more opportunity for your inner-fairy to turn you into a big pile of mush whose estrogen levels equal or exceed your testosterone levels.
If there’s anything I claim to be better-than-average it, it’s knowing WHO to go to learn HOW to do something. Yes, we first have to sit around and determine and assess the problem we’re trying to SOLVE.
Then, once we know with 100% conviction, we get off our asses and DO.
So what can you do?
Over to Mike for the rest of this ranting, but important, topic:
1: Commit to your vision of Victory, and do not settle for anything less.
2: Speak up!!!
Stop hiding and worrying about what other people think of you, because I can tell you this…90% of people in the world see what’s happening. They aren’t stupid. They might be afraid to say it, but they SEE IT.
How do I know?
Because once I started speaking up, they reached out and said THANK YOU. They knew it was safe to share their concerns.
Hundreds of you emailed in your support of my speech two weeks ago.
Do you know how many people complained about it?
Five. Five miserable people who hate freedom.
Courage is contagious. When you have courage, you inspire courage in others. When you stay silent and live in fear, you inspire silence and fear.SO SPEAK UP!
3: Once you have a clear vision of what Victory looks like, it also means that you can now identify rules and behaviors that are NOT okay.
Once you can identify what’s unacceptable, you can SAY NO to it. You can create personal boundaries.
Not all, buy most politicians are narcissists. They will continue to abuse you while saying it’s your fault until you stand up to them.
If you’ve ever been in a relationship with a narcissist like I have, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The only thing they understand are clear and defined boundaries, and the only time they understand and see those boundaries are when you push back in a very loud and clear way.
4: Remove yourself from dependence on your abuser.
If you are dependent upon a narcissist, they have you right where they want you.
The single biggest point of leverage and control, is money. If you are dependent upon someone else for money, you’re on a leash. You must find a way to create financial independence for yourself by starting a business, or by creating passive investment income.
As my friend Codie Sanchez recently put it, “I’m un-cancellable”.
Why? Because she owns dozens of off-line small businesses like laundry-mats that produce 6-7 figures in passive income for her. She could lose her social media accounts tomorrow, and it won’t change her income at all.
They can’t control her, and you want to become uncontrollable as well.
Removing yourself from dependence on anyone else but you will obviously take time, so you need to start down this road quickly. The “money” aspect of this process is what Michelle and I are focused on helping people with.
In less than a year, we’ve acquired passive income producing investments that currently generate around $20,000/Mo in income. That’s money that comes in every single month whether we work again or not. We are now free, we are un-cancellable.
5: What else do you depend on others for?
Food, electricity, and healthcare. In China, if you say something the government doesn’t like, they shut off your ability to travel and leave your neighborhood. If you continue, they shut off your power. If you still continue, they shut down your bank account and therefore, your ability to buy food or pay your rent.
That’s what’s coming here in the US if we continue down our current path. If you want to fight back, you must remove your dependence on the system.
- Start a garden.
- Start building relationships with local farmers and ranchers.
- Install solar on your home.
- Build relationships with your local Functional Medicine doctors who work outside the control of the health insurance system.
We’re in the process of doing all of these, and many of our friends in Austin are doing the same.
6: Organize and unify.
This has nothing to do with whether you’re for the vaccine or against it. I don’t care if you’ve been vaccinated or not. Some of my friends have, and that’s their choice.
What we all agree on, is that giving up freedom for fear is not okay.
That’s where the line is drawn. That’s where abuse and tyranny begin.
I would highly recommend that you organize a meeting with fellow freedom lovers in your circle of influence.
I cannot tell you how powerful local meetings are. They are the foundation of resistance to tyranny.
Do you think they are using a bio-weapon that creates distance and distrust between individuals by accident? The American Revolution was planned in local pubs.
If you haven’t watched the speech I gave and the crowd at the end, please do so. You’ll understand the power of organizing your community.
People see that they’re not alone. They are inspired by the confidence and strength they see in others.
They see smiles and get hugs in a place that’s filled with people who share their values for the first time in nearly two years.
We are hosting the first meeting of many to come at our home in a few weeks to organize.
Please do the same.
Make a plan to support each other because YOU AND I are it.
No one else is coming to save the day. American citizens are the last hope for freedom on the planet. It’s not our military. It’s us.
7: And finally, that brings me to the last point I’ll share today, which is the most important…
The 2nd Amendment was created incase the 1st Amendment failed, and it has failed. Freedom of speech is all but gone.
Why is the 2nd Amendment so important?
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
56 million defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.
You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.
Switzerland issues every household a gun by law. Switzerland’s government trains every adult they issue a rifle. Switzerland has the lowest gun related crime rate of any civilized country in the world.
Guess what the #1 priority is for the corrupt politicians in the US?
It’s to establish gun control and to disarm the American people. We are the last large country anywhere in the world with an armed population. If you give up your guns, freedom dies…
And if history is any indicator we will likely die as well.
If you don’t own a fire-arm, go buy one today and sign up for classes on how to use them. Buy at AR-15 and learn how to use it. Buy ammo.
In summary, if you want to know what YOU can do to stop the slide toward Totalitarianism and into and age of darkness unlike anything the world has ever seen…
- Get angry. (Because you should be!)
- Define Victory.
- Turn your anger into certainty.
- Stand your ground and say, “NO!”
- Speak up!
- Focus on unity, not division.
- Arm yourself.
- And end your dependence on the system that currently controls you.
It’s not that one man or woman can make a difference… It’s that one man or woman ALWAYS makes the difference.
Rosa Parks was just one ordinary woman who got on a bus one day, and she changed the country because she said, “NO!”
Her act of claiming her personal freedom that day sparked a movement that ended segregation.
I can assure you that YOU saying, “NO MORE!” makes ALL the difference!
If you’re with me, please share this email with those you care about.
Let them know that they’re not alone, and that when we stand together, our Victory is certain.
We did not ask for this fight, but we will finish it.
Back to me, BG: There is so much more needed to say about this topic; about Men losing their way and/or feeling sensitive and shy to take matters in their own hands.
Over the next few months, I’ll be focusing my efforts on ACTION-items you, or the Man in your life, can DO to start creating and living a Life by Design. A life that gives you more freedom, more safety, more security, from the bottom-up.
