Paris – With Comments

If Western civilization is dying, it’s slowly destroying itself from within. Murderous Islamists who won’t tolerate any views other than their own are merely the opportunistic barbarians at the gates.

Combat Shooter's HandbookThe links Claire furnishes, her analysis and her followers comments comprise a very good assessment of the current situation created by the uS government in the middle east (and now spilling uncontrolled into the West).

The bottom line: I have no fear of these petty murdering Muslim creeps. Our greatest fear is “losing yet more liberty, thanks to government reaction.”– jtl, 419

For the last few weeks I’ve been sitting on a couple of articles about Europe, Islam, and Western civilization, waiting for a moment to link them and talk about them.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsAfter Paris — again, Paris — this is as good a time as any for linking:

ZeroHedge: “The Death of Europe.”

National Review: “Is the West Slip, Slip, Slipping Away?”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)If Western civilization is dying, it’s slowly destroying itself from within. Murderous Islamists who won’t tolerate any views other than their own are merely the opportunistic barbarians at the gates.

But there is no doubt that these savages, who come from or are inspired by lands where either tyranny or chaos — or both — reign, want to tear down the West down to their barbaric level.

Yes, I know that governments of the West are at least partially responsible, sometimes largely responsible, for reducing the Middle East to chaos.

However — and I’m not supposed to say this because it goes against freedomista PC — Islam itself contains a poison at its heart. It’s always been there, this mindless submission to “divine” authority OR ELSE, this “conquer by the sword” mentality.

Christianity had it, too. Much of Christianity’s history was as bloody as anything the Islamists have going today. But the Reformation and the Enlightenment pulled Christianity’s fangs — and separated religion and government. Which is as it should be despite all the wails and protests from would-be Republican theocrats. Now individuals are free to choose Christianity or not, free to think about it, criticize it, adopt it, love it, despise it as they wish. Millions benefit from it — in freedom. Others leave it — in freedom. No slaughter required.

Nobody is even attempting to pull Islam’s giant fangs. On the contrary, countries are stupidly opening their gates to let the bloody monster in. All in the name of some of the very Western values (tolerance, humanitarianism, the guilt of supposed privilege, etc.) that the monster either wishes to destroy or will cynically use for its own devouring ends.

    November 14th, 2015 “…countries are stupidly opening their gates to let the bloody monster in.”I live in one of those countries (Canada) that will soon open the flood gates to 25,000+ refugees. In Germany around 10% to 15% of the refugees they took in have gone dark and off grid. Seeing the European experience, I think that Canada will be in for a rough ride concerning the refugees and that there will be more attacks like Paris but in places like Montreal and Toronto. All because we have a young inexperienced Prime Minister who likes Muslims.One of the things that came out of last night’s Paris attacks for me was a phone call. A friend who works on and lives next to a military base called and begged me for a firearm and ammo plus some training on how to use it. He is afraid that when the refugees arrive there will be similar shenanigans to what happened in Paris. What was strikingly different about this request was that his wife is very anti-gun ownership and she was the one who asked him to ask me. Yep we are living in very interesting times.

    November 14th, 2015 What a coincidence (not) that I have been brooding over the same topic.MJR: On that subject we were trading emails over recently, maybe it’s better that certain items stay close to home, hm?

    November 14th, 2015 OMG Claire, you get it; you really, really get it.Radical Islamists perfectly fit Glubb’s description of unschooled people coming seemingly out of nowhere. http://people.uncw.edu/kozloffm/glubb.pdf Thanks again MJR; it’s been great fun reading.They also perfectly fit Kornbluth’s Frontier League fighters http://www.baenebooks.com/chapters/0671698265/0671698265___7.htmAnd we perfectly fit Glubb’s description of the Age of Decadence. Khruschev’s famous prediction that we would rot from within was completely logical, although his 50 year estimate was off. We just as perfectly fit Pat Buchanan’s assessment in Death of the West http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_17?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=death+of+the+west+patrick+buchanan&sprefix=death+of+the+west+patrick+buchanan%2Caps%2C352 (available through Living Freedom links).

    And by virtually all indications we have a president who foments this behavior and is determined, in violation of law, to bring as many Muslims here as possible. Yes, most are peaceful, but if it only took 3% of our population to actively fight the Revolutionary War, then it won’t take many of them to become a serious force to be reckoned with. And over half of them would prefer Sharia law to our Constitution. I often think of G. Gordon Liddy’s admonition that if you pour dirty water into clean water, you get dirty water. Muslims in this country haven’t yet reached a critical mass, although they may already have in much of Europe.

    Our president refuses to use the term “Radical Islam” but has no problem sticking a single finger up in the air. http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/02/obama_and_the_muslim_gang_sign.html

    November 14th, 2015 The problem as I see it is that “countries” (government bullies) have been allowed to build fences and gates (“borders”) in the first place, which they then claim overrides private property rights.“Borders” are imaginary and can’t substitute for property lines. It’s not about “open borders”, it about no (imaginary, government) “borders” at all- about seeing the “borders” for what they are, and turning away from them and toward what actually works: private property.If private property were respected (including the right to violently defend your property with the weapon of your choosing) “immigration” could never become an issue. Either each individual is where they have a right to be (ownership, a rental agreement, or permission of the owner), or they are trespassing and subject to self defensive action. Somehow the opinions of bullies calling themselves “government”, through them drawing lines on the map, have displaced this, and here is the result. And it will keep being the result no matter what anti-immigrant policies “governments” make up- because every anti-immigrant policy chips away at private property rights just a bit more.There will always be bad guys violating property and initiating force. You can’t defeat them by embracing them, and support for government policies is embracing the bad guys.
  5. Ron Johnson Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Of course they were Muslims. The U.S. gov has not been bombing, subverting, droning, or invading Christian countries. I’ll bet most of the attacks on farmer settlements in the Great American West were done by Native Americans for the same reason. Just a hunch.
  6. Claire Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Kent — In theory, I agree with you. Too bad we don’t live in a theoretical world, but one that already and firmly has those two incompatible features: porous borders and welfare states. Not to mention governments committed to a warped statist version of multiculturalism.
  7. Claire Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Joel — Well said. I admit that my own “inner Homer Simpson” made some noises in my head. But you’re right about why eight murderous creeps can set a whole culture trembling.I said this before and was accused of both blaming the victim and being a collectivist, but I think one of the major things that needs to happen is a huge Enlightenment-style reform within the Islamic world that makes terrorism less appealing and acceptable. Don’t see much chance of that happening any time soon, if ever. Meanwhile …
  8. Claire Says:
    November 14th, 2015 “And by virtually all indications we have a president who foments this behavior and is determined, in violation of law, to bring as many Muslims here as possible.”Thank you, Shel, for the v*te of confidence and the good links. What’s even more remarkably bizarre than Obama’s behavior is the fact that heads of state all over Europe (with a few exceptions) are doing the same.I can think of many reasons, but all smack of exactly the sort of conspiratorial thinking I prefer not to drown myself in.
  9. Claire Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Ron Johnson — If the U.S. gov is responsible for damaging the Muslim world (which it surely is), then how does it just naturally follow that Muslims will attack innocent concert goers and sports fans in Paris?(ADDED: I rewrote this comment completely, but the question is still the same.)

    November 14th, 2015 The WaPost says Muslims around the world are condemning the attacks, and of course that’s certainly true.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/11/14/how-muslims-around-the-world-condemned-the-paris-attacks/But look at the line CAIR is using to supposedly “condemn” the acts — a hashtag being picked up by religionists:http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/11/14/the-hashtag-that-cair-is-promoting-following-paris-attacks/

    #terrorhasnoreligion

    That’s nothing but denial. Highly self-serving denial.

    It’s not like the world is full of mass murdering creeps shouting “Hail Richard Dawkins!” Or “Praise Buddha!” as they slaughter, is it?

    #terrorismhasnoreligion avoids the problem and avoids any real attempt to solve or deal with it. And although CAIR issued a condemnation along with it, the hashtag is a bloody lie.

  12. MamaLiberty Says:
    November 14th, 2015 If I may interject a little optimism…There are between 8 or 10… or maybe more, different “flavors” of Islam, and they all seem to hate each other as much or more than they hate everyone else. That’s been going on for many centuries, and I doubt any one of them will emerge as a majority, let alone a cohesive influence. They kill more of their own among the factions than they do anyone else – and have for a very long time.I’ve worked with a good number of Muslims over the years, and the one characteristic I remember the most is their relative indifference to life itself. Even the seemingly peaceful kind seem to be sincerely embedded into fatalism, as well as this passion to impose their views on others. Seems to me this is not a recipe for long term success. Bloody, messy and terrible in the meantime, but not permanent. They were never even able to impose that totally in their own lands all this time.
  13. MamaLiberty Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Looking over the news about this rampage, it is striking that not ONE of them that I’ve seen even mentions the remote possibility of people being armed to defend themselves. The stupid runs so deep.But I wonder what most ordinary people are thinking… those who know their governments can’t and won’t protect them. Bet the black market for guns is in serious overdrive.

  15. Ron Johnson Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Claire, in answer to your question, no, there is no logical continuum from our government (and our allies like France and England) bombing the crap out of Muslim countries and Muslims reacting by shooting up a concert in Paris. The Muslims lashing out at innocent civilians is about as rational as the U.S. attacking Iraq for 9/11.Collectivism cuts both ways.
  16. Pat Says:
    November 14th, 2015 Good articles, Claire. (I had read “The Death of Europe” before.)Joel said, “Mightn’t it be possible to make terrorism a less attractive tactic by removing the willingness to stampede?”Yes. “Terror” stems not from the terrorist, but from those who are terrorized; it’s an emotional reaction, not an action.This is not just about France; ISIS (and those influenced by ISIS) has found its way to Europe, to America, and wherever it can infiltrate. The aggressor has declared itself. The more we allow, the harder it will be to stop as it spreads itself around the world. They have even told us their plans – for Islam, and for the world. (And whether America or any country is a governed nation or a geographical area is immaterial in this context.)

    Diplomacy with the Middle East is no longer effective (and is a farce, anyway). If we’re going to war with ISIS, let’s do it! Call out the Middle Eastern countries that have played the Western world for a fool, and demand they take sides. They’re biding their time until they – each country – can place itself in a stronger position to declare against us. (A position that we have given them.) Why wait for their strength?

    I personally don’t give a damn what they believe – it’s their actions that speak for them. And they have DECLARED WAR against us.

    I don’t know if it’s the good or the bad Muslims who are inundating Europe (possibly both; the bad to infiltrate Europe, the good to leave their country before it’s destroyed by ISIS or by the Western world), but Europe tied its own hands when it became the EU. Now the countries are left in the position of board members fighting for their individual careers, but having to think as a collective mindset. That dichotomy will never work. (I absolutely agree with Mark Steyn’s “The Barbarians Are Inside, And There Are No Gates.”)

    How long can the world take it? How long do We, The People in every country tolerate the frustrating and debilitating political and economic policies that have brought us down to this state of affairs?

    The only way to fight a war is… FIGHT IT.

  17. Claire Says:
    November 14th, 2015 “The Muslims lashing out at innocent civilians is about as rational as the U.S. attacking Iraq for 9/11.”Sadly true, that. Too bad that in each case the doers of the evil deeds can’t be held accountable.
  18. LarryA Says:
    November 14th, 2015 One f the “amazing” characteristics of the situation is how much MSM condemnation there is for any government not accepting “enough” of the refugees, and the complete silence when it comes to the regime causing the refugees to flee.But the Reformation and the Enlightenment pulled Christianity’s fangs — and separated religion and government.True, but I think it was not the Reforming and Enlightening that occurred, but the splintering of Christianity into so may denominations that none held power. The large majority of people in the U.S. who consider themselves “Christian” are not a “Christian Majority” as much as they are a collection of minorities, who can’t cooperate enough to share Sunday services, much less run a national government.Hence ML’s optimism.

    I know someone who believes that if Israel was just swept out of the way there would be peace in the Middle East. I think the inter-Arabian bloodbath would just accelerate.

    November 14th, 2015 [Maine’s generous welfare policies began collapsing once Somali Muslims swarmed in to take advantage of them.]Uh, this is a good thing, right? :-)[Under Islamic law, it’s better for Mohammed to sell drugs than to pay taxes.]Muslims are taking a page right out of the libertarian/anarchist playbook.

    [No one wonders what happened to the fossilized idea of legal immigration…]

    Or the even older idea of unrestricted immigration. “Legal” immigration only reared its ugly head when the European states started showering residents with socialist bennies. Before then immigration was self-regulating; people came only if there was a place for them, or moved on if it didn’t work out.

    Of course I could be wrong (please correct me if I am). But that is my impression from my reading.

    “In the middle half of the nineteenth century (between 1820 to 1870) over seven and a half million immigrants came to the United States — more than doubling the entire population of the country.”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Americans

    “In the 35 years before Ellis Island opened, more than eight million immigrants arriving in New York City had been processed by New York State officials at Castle Garden Immigration Depot in Lower Manhattan, just across the bay.[23] The federal government assumed control of immigration on April 18, 1890, and Congress appropriated $75,000 to construct America’s first federal immigration station on Ellis Island.”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellis_Island

    That means prior to 1890, immigration in the US was a state matter, not federal.

    “History of Immigration Laws in France

    1932 First French law establishing quotas for immigrants: limited immigration to foreign workers with work identification cards.”
    https://www.umass.edu/complit/aclanet/frenchmi.htm

    Can you imagine? Before socialism, France got along fine without immigration laws.

    Keep in mind the entity we are looking to, to solve this problem. Our friend, the US federal government. Kinda like hiring the Mafia. Remember what Harry Browne said about “If I were King?”

    Well, at least back in 1939, our government managed to keep the Jews out.
    http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005267

    [A friend who works on and lives next to a military base called and begged me for a firearm and ammo plus some training on how to use it.]

    Every cloud has a silver lining…

    [Kent — In theory, I agree with you. Too bad we don’t live in a theoretical world, but one that already and firmly has those two incompatible features: porous borders and welfare states.]

    This sounds like the arguments for sensible gun control.

    We have a government that occupies Muslim countries for oil, that advances imperialism everywhere. Blowback and emigration from those countries is not surprising. We have governments that indulge in wealth transfers, in places where there is wealth. If you were an emigrant, would you go to France, or to Mali?

    The borders are not the problem. Imperialism and welfare and socialism are the problem. We should not try to prop up socialism by putting a fence around this country – that would take us in a direction away from liberty. We should get rid of socialism and welfare and imperialism. If it takes Muslim immigrants and Mexicans to kill socialism via oversubscription, well then that’s what it takes.

    November 14th, 2015 This seems to me to be logical and IF it represents a sizeable portion of the adherents of Mohammad, then I will give them that which they desire.” These animals are acting from flagrantly anti-human metaphysics: even more evil than socialists of all stripes. At least the socialists make a claim to valuing human betterment, even so horrible as they are at it. These vermin are not like that: *all* their values lie beyond death.They will not be demoralized by their own deaths, that of their families or anyone else. Death itself, is the value to them.”” Death is their sacrament, reward, and object of worship. The deaths of others bring them reward. Their own death leads to reward. They ritualistically murder with the most shocking methods to show their worth.
    The knights of the Crusades had a honor code, but suicide was forbidden. We are dealing with an alien culture, which has not advanced since the 7th century.”

    November 15th, 2015 So MJR and his Canadian friends are worried about the 25.000+ refugees *per year*?Currently, there are 10.000 people *per day* crossing the German border. That’s the equivalent of 4.000 per day walking into Canada, or more than 40.000 per day invading the US of A.Middle Easterners, Afghans, Africans and some from the Balkans. 80% of them young single males. (Of course. They’re not dumb enough to send their wifes and kids with those hordes.)
    What could possibly go wrong?Ten years ago, I decided to move to a small stable rural town. I didn’t choose an isolated homestead (too dangerous), and I sure as hell wouldn’t stay in big city. At that time, there was already civil war brooding in some metropolitan hot spots IMO.
    Didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what this was developing into. Looking at Sweden, greater Paris and greater London was sufficient. Or the Netherlands.

    What we have now is the same situation on steroids.

    The signature gang rapes (like in Sweden) already started. Everyone who voices even the slightest scepticism or discomfort with the situation is dubbed a Nazi by the media and guvment.

    A recipe for desaster.

    Interesting times indeed.

    November 15th, 2015 Claire: “Islam itself contains a poison at its heart. It’s always been there, this mindless submission to ‘divine’ authority OR ELSE, this ‘conquer by the sword’ mentality.”I have always defended Islam, but I’ve done so because my experience of it was doing five-times prayer for two years in America with American imams. Islamic religion. American culture. Selective reading of the Koran. Just as most modern Christians selectively read the Bible, ignoring the edicts demanding violence.But the culture in Islamic countries varies. Some of them consider women to be property, do not separate religion and state, and obey literally the violent edicts in the Koran. THAT I cannot defend. Our enemy: the state. On steroids.
  24. Claire Says:
    November 15th, 2015 Nicki says it well. It isn’t about how many of the refugees or Muslims in general are terrorists. It’s about how the murderous few are using the rest and abusing the tragic generosity and welcome extended by the countries of Europe. And how blind European governments have acted.http://thelibertyzone.com/2015/11/14/paris/(Nicki is more conservative than I and I don’t agree with everything she says. OTOH, she has a job that puts her in a position to understand more than most of us do about international crime, including terrorism.)
  25. Claire Says:
    November 15th, 2015 “IF it represents a sizeable portion of the adherents of Mohammad, then I will give them that which they desire.”Thanks for the Billy Beck quote. I didn’t even know he was still around.I have no idea how large a minority of Muslims participates in or actively supports terrorism. Probably very small. I do believe that a substantial minority help enable it in some way.I also suspect (per Bill St. Clair’s comment above) that the “problem with Islam” is as much a problem with Arab/Persian culture as with religion. The uber-male dominance, the fixation on revenge, the lack of value for life, the intolerance of differences, the bloody superstitions (dying a martyr and being rewarded with virgins in the afterlife, etc.), the non-separation of chuch and state.
  26. Shel Says:
    November 15th, 2015 FWIW, there have been concerns about Muslim activity in this country for some time:http://theprepperproject.com/tactical-training-courses/http://canadafreepress.com/2006/hagmann052206.htmThere is even a remarkably sophisticated jihadist recruiting film, the “Four Lions” (even the title is astute, for the English coat of arms contains three lions). It’s presented as near slapstick with likable bumbling terrorists and bumbling police, but the idea of suicidal jihad is treated with great reverence. Of course the mainstream media viewed it as a comedy and “black humor.” http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_13?url=search-alias%3Dmovies-tv&field-keywords=the+four+lions&sprefix=the+four+lions%2Caps%2C196

    On a tangent, the WaPo had an article about an upcoming election in Burma (aka Myanmar). It had the usual international slant about a mean military dictatorship that now has allowed elections, “ultra-nationalist” Buddhist monks (including a “firebrand” monk dubbed the “Burmese bin Laden”, a moniker which obviously makes no sense), allegations of mistreatment of Muslims, as well as the nearly obligatory Nobel Peace Laureate (a woman, as a bonus) formerly incarcerated by the government who won’t tout Muslims for cabinet posts only because it’s politically disadvantageous. Not terribly surprisingly, the reporter had difficulty finding anyone to talk to her until she encountered a “novice monk.” At the end of the article comes the punch line, a quote from the monk who says, “Muslims are dangerous. They’re not like other religions.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/hardline-buddhist-monks-threaten-burmas-hopes-for-democracy/2015/11/04/8d5e5296-78ee-11e5-a5e2-40d6b2ad18dd_story.html

    I certainly don’t know how this will turn out, but I do know the threat level to us has dramatically increased, both from the Radical Islamists and those who say they would protect us from them.

  27. Claire Says:
    November 15th, 2015 “I do know the threat level to us has dramatically increased, both from the Radical Islamists and those who say they would protect us from them.”True, that.I have to disagree with one thing, though. I’ve seen the movie Four Lions. While I’m sure it’s possible that some young, maladjusted idiots might take it as inspiration, it’s sure not intended to be. Blaming this film for inspiring terrorism seems to me to be in the same league as blaming rock music for crimes or debauchery. The “lions” in the film are complete fools, not role models. Of course they take jihad and suicide bombing seriously because that’s what drives their moronic actions.My take: It certainly is comedy of the very black, British kind that leaves a lot of people shaking their heads in puzzlement. It’s in the same long tradition as comedies about gruesome serial killings. And it’s not a very good movie.

  29. LibertyNews Says:
    November 15th, 2015 Do not forget that those in power LOVE it when you fear something. We have been hearing about the evil Muslims since 9/11. That they all want to wipe us out, they they are invading our perfect western civilization, and that they are imposing their laws on us. None of that has materialized.The Paris attacks were pulled off by 8 people. 8!. That’s all it takes to shut down a country. Where is the mass of terrorists that we are constantly warned about? What kind of mayhem could 100 cause? Why haven’t they? Maybe because they don’t actually exist, and those in power want to keep you afraid. Look at what happened after the Boston Marathon Bombing. 2 people held a city in their thrall, people told to lock their door and not go outside, curfew imposed. All for 2 terrorists. If there were truly a massive campaign of invading terrorists we, or at least our so called leaders, would be no match for them.We need to be very careful that this attack isn’t used to pull us into new wars that we cannot win, where collateral damage is acceptable, and that give those in power further excuses to erode our liberties. Fear provides the perfect excuse. It is better to try to look past the fear, try to recognize who is using it to manipulate you, and refuse to fall for the rhetoric.
  30. Claire Says:
    November 15th, 2015 I thought, after 9/11, and I still think, that if governments have to deal with terrorists, it’s more appropriate to deal with them as gangsters than to go after entire countries (and the wrong countries, to boot). Pursue terrorists as criminals, as you’d pursue mafiosi or particularly vicious cartelistas.I agree the wars on Iraq, Afghanistan, and whoever else have been pointless and destructive and cynical governments have manipulated their citizens into them. I agree we should avoid perpetuating those horrors.That said, I still perceive a deep, murderous sickness permeating Islam & believe a vast (and unlikely) cultural change is needed to minimize it.
  31. Paul Bonneau Says:
    November 15th, 2015 [Do not forget that those in power LOVE it when you fear something.]Exactly. The ruling class does not care about 127 dead (nor should we – this is a gnat bite, albeit a flashy one). They WILL use this event to manipulate people, even assuming they did not actually orchestrate it (anyway invading Muslim countries is a good way to generate terror attacks). They WANT people to think that the only solution is a government one. Get ready to hand over more liberty, folks.
  32. Claire Says:
    November 15th, 2015 “The ruling class does not care about 127 dead (nor should we – this is a gnat bite, albeit a flashy one).”I agree that the ruling class doesn’t care (or rather, cares only because this presents an opportunity to grab even more power). But I find the rest of that sentence obnoxious.127 or 150 dead or whatever the ultimate toll will be is NOT a gnat bite. Not to the individuals. Not to their friends, neighbors, classmates, co-workers, lovers, spouses, mothers, fathers, children, and everyone else who cared about them or depended on them. To dismiss their deaths as a “gnat bite” is COLD. Soullessly cold.Yes, people die every day, yada yada. But that hardly makes mass murder no big deal.

    Besides, even if we didn’t know or care about the murdered and wounded individuals, this was an attack on Western civilization and values. It was primitive, superstitious savagery inflicted on the heart of a great city. It was many, many, many horrible things. And even if you don’t personally give a damn, it was NO “gnat bite.”

  33. Claire Says:
    November 15th, 2015 BTW, I think it’s safe to say that most people reading this blog don’t feel FEAR over this attack (except the obvious fear of losing yet more liberty, thanks to government reaction).What I feel is anger. Anger that crude savages are free to rampage thought a great city. Anger at the mass slaughter and all the pain it will cause. Anger that such petty little murdering creeps feel so self-righteous. Anger that so many innocents have been disarmed — and even now won’t see that self-protection can’t be delegated. Anger for all manner of things. Not fear.

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.
