Dare to do things worthy of imprisonment if you mean to be of consequence.  ~Juvenal


Laws control the lesser man.  Right conduct controls the greater one.  ~Chinese Proverb


Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.  ~Albert Einstein


No radical change on the plane of history is possible without crime.  ~Hermann Keyserling


When leaders act contrary to conscience, we must act contrary to leaders.  ~Veterans Fast for Life


It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.  ~Voltaire


If... the machine of government... is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.  ~Henry David Thoreau, On the Duty of Civil Disobediance, 1849


You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality.  Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.  ~Malcolm X


Human history begins with man's act of disobedience which is at the very same time the beginning of his freedom and development of his reason.  ~Erich Fromm,Psychoanalysis and Religion


Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't.  You cannot shirk this and be a man.  To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may.  ~Mark Twain


Integrity has no need of rules.  ~Albert Camus


If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable.  ~Louis D. Brandeis


Laws are only words written on paper, words that change on society's whim and are interpreted differently daily by politicians, lawyers, judges, and policemen.  Anyone who believes that all laws should always be obeyed would have made a fine slave catcher.  Anyone who believes that all laws are applied equally, despite race, religion, or economic status, is a fool.  ~John J. Miller, And Hope to Die


Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and commonest of the vices.  ~George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutionists

Civil disobedience. We are going to have to do it. Ron Paul said that is what we need to do. He might have gotten screwed by the shadow government or he might have been controlled opposition ( I don't really think so btw Rand Sucks!)  Anyway, people are going to have to be willing to lose something to gain something, even though it is theirs given to them by a creator (you get to pick who that is because of... the Bill of Rights!) We are close and what we are closest to is the cutting off of public funding of all kinds... unless they can keep printing money. 

What's funny is one kind  of disobedience is simply catching the ptb on lower levels doing illegal shit in places where they have no jurisdiction. Watch them scatter like rats and correct their bullshit. You can make a difference in your immediate surroundings. People don't want what the nwo does, it goes against our own survival and how we choose to survive.  Micro apartments. Coffins... Japanese already have this. This ain't my American dream!

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! -- I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Patrick Henry

March 23, 1775

“if we don’t rebel, if we’re not physically in an active rebellion, then it’s spiritual death.”

“No man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
~ Thomas Jefferson

“Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.”
~ Ron Paul
