It amazing to me how prescient writers like Ayn Rand and George Orwell were. Almost everything that they wrote in their novels is coming to pass. Almost everything that is outlined in Atlas Shrugged is coming to pass. It’s almost like the progressives have used Atlas Shrugged as a blueprint for what they’re going to do. I can imagine somebody actually reading Atlas Shrugged and looking at things like the the “anti-dog-eat-dog” rule and saying “That’s a damn good idea.” I can actually imagine these liberals looking at this book and saying “here we have a blueprint for how were going to take over society” and they look at and read and see the heroes as villains and the villains as heroes. Imagine Wesley Mouch & Dr. Ferris as heroes! Saviors of the down-trodden? Can you see that? I don’t think so. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they could.
They are not just after our guns. They are after our lives and our souls.
“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.” -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Would you believe me if I wrote that the government is not after our guns? Probably not, as it certainly looks that way with the pending executive orders and new gun legislation. Well, the guns are secondary. I urge you to think bigger, “think outside of the box.” Make no mistake about this, they will come after our guns, but they are coming after us.
