Busting one myth
Both "sides" of the gun "debate" are squirrely today over a comment by a politician on the "progressive" "side". He pointed out CORRECTLY that the state has a MASSIVE advantage in weaponry over an individual. The state has nukes, and is ITCHING to use them against Deplorables. Waiting for the tiniest excuse.
The "conservative" side cherishes an idiotic myth that owning a gun was meant to be a safeguard against tyranny. They love to point out tyrants who took power "because" the people were unarmed. Most of those cases are simply false. Stalin had absolute power over Russia, where everyone outside the big cities had guns. Saddam had absolute power over Iraq, where EVERYONE had AK-47s, as our mythinformed soldiers found out. There's no correlation. In fact most dictators rule with the consent of their own people.
You don't have to think very hard to figure this out.
Successful revolutions ALWAYS require a real army.
There are two ways for this to happen. (1) The typical South American or African revolution is performed by the country's own army, toppling a corrupt dictator. (2) Most other revolutions are aided by FOREIGN armies. Our revolution had financial and military assistance from France (still ruled by monarchs then) and Germany. The French revolution had support from USA and Germany. The Russian Revolution was run by Germany and UK. The Cuban revolution was started by CIA.
One brave man can do NOTHING about tyranny. Even a large portion of the population can do NOTHING unless they can command a set of weapons, and a trained army, which is SUPERIOR to the existing force.
Deepstate has tanks and bombers and thousands of organized soldiers and nukes and Facebook and Google and Twitter.
Opponents could compete with the cyber part of Deepstate's monopoly, but they are either too stupid to figure it out, or more likely they are not opponents at all. They're just one "side" of a Deepstate puppet show.
We should thank this politician for brutally speaking the plain PERMANENT HISTORICAL TRUTH.
