The inimitable Claire Wolfe, who's been an inspiration to what she terms "freedomistas" for decades, has just produced a couple of articles on "Dealing with our new totalitarian reality" that are worth reading. These links will take you to Part 1 and Part 2.
Here's an excerpt from the second article to whet your appetite.
Virtually every traditional institution has lost all credibility. No one of good sense trusts any any official or any piece of information they can’t verify for themselves.
In other words, if ever a regime was ready to prolapse into an oozing lump of rotted illusions, it’s this one.
However ... this system — partially “private” and partly Deep State (but can you tell the difference?) — may have the capability to outlast the depraved class that built it.
. . .
In the meantime we have two jobs to do. Just two: live with the new totalitarianism and plan to outlive it.
Live with does not mean tolerate. Outlive doesn’t mean to wait passively until it dies on its own. On the contrary.
No, we do not have to tolerate the intolerable. Our job of living with the new totalitarian reality doesn’t mean accepting it on its own terms. It means first acknowledging reality, evaluating our position, then taking positive steps to go around, through, over, or under the obstacles in our path. In totalitarianism, obstacles are many.
. . .
Living with totalitarianism does not mean going along to get along — except in the case of the Freedom Outlaw Mole, whose role of reporting and sabotaging from within becomes more important than ever as evil tightens its grip.
Under totalitarianism — with all its dangers even for the most mild dissenters — we deplorables will each make our own decisions about how visible we’re willing to be. Already some formerly public noisemakers have opted to slip away into silence while others redouble their public rages against the machine.
But even if we we choose to appear to be good, obedient members of the proletariat, we will not ever stop routing our way around or through a system that is bad to its tubercular bones.
Our second job — outliving a rotten system — also does not imply passivity. It means we do all we can to ensure our own healthy survival while hastening the ancien regime’s inevitable downfall.
. . .
Totalitarianisms are inherently flawed. Whatever the differences between them (and remember, that every totalitarianism looks different), they’re all based on the laughable belief that a tiny, out-of-touch elite and their minions can understand and completely control a nation or the world ... But in the end, control by an elite is simply impossible — and that goes double for an elite like ours, which is already in a state of decrepitude and decomposition.
What they’re doing now looks like an exercise of power, but it’s really desperation. They will stop at nothing because nothing — the abyss — awaits them when the billions realize they’ve been had.
But they will stop. Because one day they are finally so weakened that even their most ardent partisans won’t (or can’t) stand for them any more. At that point … doom. Their doom.
. . .
... take comfort that, contra Biden and Swalwell, the mighty United States government and its entire Deep State apparatus was just trounced in Afghanistan not by F15s and nuclear weapons, but by tribal goat herders.
. . .
Be flexible, be fast, be ready to spot opportunity, even if it comes in a form you never anticipated. And oh please try not to be stupid. Let all the stupidity be on their side.
There's much more at the link. Highly recommended reading.
Ms. Wolfe offers a number of very practical suggestions in the article that we can implement as part of our personal resistance to centralized government tyranny, bureaucracy and control. (Her books also offer useful - and frequently amusing - advice.) I suggest we read her work for ourselves, select steps we can personally take in our own circumstances, and implement them. There's no time like the present to start!
