    Yes, it is…

    Or as we could say; intimidation and violence.

    It’s the Authoritarian System, but then you have to understand what that means or you’ll get all kinds of confused. The South, up to and through the Civil War period, believed that any attempt to abolish slavery would be a violation, backed by intimidation and threats of violence, of their “rights”.

    Each side then see’s the other, and correctly so from their opposite points of view, as a beast. The difference is that one side is just and the other is inherently unjust.

    The Authoritarian system chooses to see both sides as morally equivalent in that they’re both willing to use violence and threats of violence to protect their system. They fail to acknowledge that there is a giant, moral difference between the attacker and the defender (of rights in this case) and also of course they must deny the true definition of “rights”.

    This dovetails with Obama’s declaration that the Bill of Rights is a “charter of negative rights”. His view of protecting rights is that it deprives him of the Authoritarians’ “right” to do whatever they want. The obvious problem with this position is that there is no “right” to violate rights. This, they believe, is terribly unfair and hypocritical (we maintain the authority to protect what we see as “rights”, but they don’t?). He, along with all adherents to the Authoritarian System, must pretend that there is a right to violate rights (or that our definition of “rights” and their definition of “rights” are at least moral equals), otherwise their entire system, their whole world, collapses and dies.

    As Mao said, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” So when they don’t want you to have a gun, guess what it really is they don’t want you to have?
