Bill Whittle on Rebuilding America and Beating The Left… Legally

Maksim sent me this:

I’m sure most know who Bill Whittle is. He made this video late last night just hours after the election was decided. It is long (90 minutes), he rambles some, gets off point at times, but what he lays out is truly revolutionary. It should be watched this in its entirety. (I’ve watched it twice so far) You may scoff and dismiss it, or just disagree, that’s fine it’s an idea that’s not for everyone. I found it to be potentially the start of something truly amazing and I wanted to share it.

BTW: Don’t misunderstand him, he’s not trying to sell you anything, he’s just expressing an idea.

It gets really good about 40 minutes in, and the end is amazing. Don’t you dare skip ahead you will lose the context.

Mr. Pinko says – Go here to view the video – it’s one and a half hour long – worth the time to listen to.

    I gave the video until 0:44 to make sense. Fail. I’m not getting into an airplane OR a business with THAT guy.

    WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE IDEAS:
    1)My take-away is that he’s promoting more barter-like associations in an internet-venue forum. By that, I assume he means doing work – usually for money – among willing participants. Though it may start with people having “day jobs” and then supplementing it with this, he suggests people trending towards this as full-time self-employed “free molecules,” as he called it.

    WHAT I DON’T LIKE
    1) doesn’t this exist to a degree in something called “Craigslist”?!

    2) Yeah, well…try *that* over the long term, without paying taxes on it and you’ll get a little jingle from the IRS Feds-with-Guns kids. Just that, in the 21st century, you’ll be the e-moonshiner, and they’ll be the e-revenooer.

    3) It sounds like he’s promoting brushing off – or simply ignoring – the political scene, as it’s become a Welfare State. THAT IS SUICIDE. You don’t like oppressive government, so you keep feeding it, just to stay legal (as he says). It already favors the Societal Parasites, and will not take kindly to those who do not feed it more and ever more money. So…DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH for that “free molecule” money to remain tax free for long: Stay out of the political scene, and both the banks and internet will be telling Big Brother Sam about your income flow in an instant.

    4) National Security: this naive concept works only as long as an overpowering-but-ever-weaker Federal Government is *not* attacked and overtaken by – say – the Russians or muslims. After that? To paraphrase an old cliche: “No computer for YOU!”

    I think the barter and space program are less developed examples. The idea he’s getting at is more like building an alternate society here and now. I think a better analogy is to look at the alternate media. The old media is still there, but fewer and fewer intelligent people are watching it. We are not trying to destroy that, we just choose the better alternative. Choosing to not participate in the government schools is another example. No one is saying to destroy the old system, just to give up on trying to reform them and let them atrophy and die. He also mentions the pop culture — we can choose not to participate in that and congregate with like-minded people in the virtual and real world.

    I think he is doing some out-of-the-box brainstorming here, trying to come up with a way to form an alternate governing structure so that when the current one is run into the ground by the liberals, we have an alternate in place. The barter stuff sounded more like an idea he was throwing up as an example, not a solution. We’ve managed successful end runs around the media and the schools, so perhaps the collective wisdom of the people can come up with the same for government. He is careful to say not to try and overthrow the government — pay the taxes and obey the laws — but we can choose to live by a higher code at the same time. Form voluntary associations with other producers in which no one chooses to do business with the looters and the moochers.

    It is an interesting concept, worthy of further thought.

    I agree with the premise of what he proposes. A lot of it is out there now, such as a home school network. But we must continue to resist, legally, the current system.
    We must also “starve the beast”. By that I mean, stop supporting the leftist, Hollywood, the TV networks and any business that supports the leftists. If you think, I just want to go see a movie this weekend”…DON’T. It will won’t be easy. You’ll have to give up things you may want, but until you do, “the beast” will continue to spoon feed lies to the masses. Starve the beast to kill it. Until you do, the masses will continue to be blanketed with lies about conservatives and we will never be able to get our message out.

    Bill Whittle is one of those brilliant people who truly are capable of thinking outside the box. And he only said about 20 times as he was talking that this is something that isn’t fleshed out but would be by the input of self-organizing people who would be the wind to his little boat. He’s not talking about barter at all in any normal sense of the word, but something that many people already engage in, free agency. My husband and I have been self-employed (free agents) for over 30 years. It is a fluid lifestyle and usually it’s a good one until the gov’t causes a housing bust or taxes you so much it’s not worth it. Under free agency you can make as little or as much money as you want depending on how many hours you want to work or how much time you want to spend doing other things. I was able to figure out how to be a very successful professional in my field and still take summers off to be with my family all day. It’s no different than working for a company, you just don’t have to put up with the corporate politics. That’s what Bill is suggesting, why put up with the politics at all? Eventually the pols and the people who pay attention to them will bury themselves under the weight of their own crap and in the meantime others will be attracted to a network of people who are actually fulfilling themselves, using their God-given talents and having an immensely greater quality of life because they’re not wasting their time arguing with losers. Love it! I’m in.

    The old system is not only broken, it is beyond repair. Bill understands this and is offering a system that is as new as those times in history when a paradigm shift moved the way people thought and perceived the world around them.

    I agree with Abigail, he’s not suggesting that we go completely back to a barter system, and he makes it clear that he does not have it all worked out, but like any great thinker and visionary, it is a work in progress and others will contribute to make this system work.

    I think it is brilliant and it removes the perpetual frustration of trying to deal with the left and retards out there. I have been ignoring them for years and never found it worth my time to try to educate them. It is a complete waste of time to try to teach the unteachable. They refuse to be enlightened or taught.

    Yes, because prevent defenses always work SO WELL. Shit.

    Whittle is just desperately trying to justify his own cowardice and unwillingness to stand and fight like a man.

    I know this is harsh, but I do feel that I have the right to call it as I see it.

    Fight what, Ann? You’re an exceptionally bright woman, but on this I think you’re wrong. Please explain how soldiering on by opting out of a broken system and developing a new one — which not only needs to happen, but will happen whether we direct it or it directs us — is cowardice.

    I get the whole ammo-up thing, but do you really think the American people can fight a conventional war of weapons against the U.S. military or do you think the military will really be convinced to switch sides? To what? We don’t have the equivalent of a Continental Congress. And then what? Do we put the “loyalists” on airplanes and send them to France and GB? Or do we compel the takers to get a job and pay their own freight? Where? What jobs?

    You absolutely have the right to call it as you see it. Can you tell me more, please?

    Ann, while you have the right to call it as you see it, I think Whittle’s approach also has merit. Flying under the radar has it points, as does your open hostility. I don’t think it cowardice to fight the leviathan in a way we see fit, so long as we fight it.

    If you want to read something that will scare the shit out of you? It is over at American Digest, which by the way is my favorite blog and where I first viewed Whittle’s viddy. What really scares me is I think he makes a pretty good case, YIKES!
