The “Why” they attack the flag

Like the poet said, “”The Gray Riders are gone, yet they remain asleep  in Our Soil, and alive in Our Veins! Untouched by fire, untouched by  frost, they whisper within us — OUR CAUSE IS NOT LOST!”… And this is not acceptable thinking to the controllers who run this country.

The clamor being raised against all things that were the Confederate
The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) And tStates of America is but a glaring fulfillment of the establishment of  the American Mainstream Media’s version of Orwell’s “1984” Ministry of  Truth.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)     Just as Orwell said, “By controlling the present, the Party is  able to manipulate the past. And in controlling the past, the Party can justify all of its actions in the present.”

Our language is being corrupted continuously and Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian Viewbeing morphed into  “Newspeak” with the goal that no one will be capable of  conceptualizing anything that might question the establishment of
absolute power.

Besides, the American people have already  Combat Shooter's Handbookaccepted Big Brother (the  NSA) watching them, they have been sold that, “War is Peace (America  is and has been in perpetual war), Freedom is Slavery (The people are  told to surrender their Liberties so the Government can keep them  safe), and Ignorance is Strength (The fruits of our public school system).

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute People have been fed a diet of deception about the causes of the War of Northern Aggression. They believe the lies and half-truths they got from the public school systems.  Few kids actually read source material.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsC.S.A. General Patrick Cleburne in a 1864 letter to President
Jefferson Davis wrote:

“Surrender means that the history of this heroic struggle will be  written by the enemy; that our A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manualyouth will be trained by Northern  school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version  of the war; will be impressed by all the influences of history and  education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed  veterans as fit subjects for derision.”

That’s what has happened. The victors have always written the books  about the war.

In 1860 the South was paying approximately 70% of the national taxes  collected. Tariffs and excise taxes supported the government and the South depended on international trade. If they left the Union there would be a catastrophic loss on income for the central government.

The world understood at that time what was going on. In Great Britain,  many intellectuals and political leaders saw Lincoln’s War for exactly what it was – a dispute over taxation.

Charles Dickens writes, “The Northern onslaught upon slavery was no more than a piece of specious  humbug designed to conceal its desire for economic control of the  Southern States.”

Dickens goes on to say “…Union means so many millions a year lost to  the South; secession means the loss of the same millions to the North.  The love of money is the root of this as of many other evils… The  quarrel between the North and South is, as it stands, solely a fiscal  quarrel.”

Let us quote a passage from the Northern British Review,
Edinburgh, 1862, “…All Northern products are now protected: and the  Morrill Tariff is a very masterpiece of folly and injustice.”

The London Times on November 7, 1861 wrote, “The contest is really for  empire on the side of the North and for independence on that of the  South.”

H L Mencken made some astute observations about this war that had been  thrust upon the South — “The American people, North and South, went into the Civil War as citizens of their respective states, they came out as subjects… And what they thus lost they have never gotten back.

The Gettysburg speech was at once the shortest and the most famous  oration in American history…the highest emotion reduced to a few poetical phrases. Lincoln himself never even remotely approached it.

It is genuinely stupendous. But let us not forget that it is poetry,
not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it. Put it into
the cold words of everyday.

The doctrine is simply this: that the  Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination – that government of the people, by the  people, for the people, should not perish from the earth.

It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in
the battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the
Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern
themselves.”

Why does that battle flag mean something to Southerners? It represents  the unquenchable thirst for individual Liberty unencumbered by an overbearing central government that micromanages our lives, regulates, and taxes excessively.. More and more people are tiring of this  overbearing central government.

Like the poet said, “”The Gray Riders are gone, yet they remain asleep  in Our Soil, and alive in Our Veins! Untouched by fire, untouched by  frost, they whisper within us — OUR CAUSE IS NOT LOST!”

And this is not acceptable thinking to the controllers who run this country.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
