Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism

To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

Another Triumph for Victim Disarmament

Gene Callahan just experienced first-hand the fruits of eighty years of UK policy aimed not only at systematically disarming the populace, but reducing them to docile sheep afraid even to defend themselves with their bare hands for fear of some criminal penalty or civil liability.

It's helpful to remember the class origins of gun control, by the way. In the U.S., gun control laws (for blacks, that is) were part the post-Civil War "black codes" created to keep the population of freed slaves manageable. Registration of firearms was also used under martial regimes in Western states, as a way of disarming the working population during the Copper Wars. In the UK, I believe, the movement for gun control really picked up steam around the General Strike of 1926. So as usual, all those "progressives" like Rosie and Hillary and Barbra and their ilk are just doing their masters' work. And of course, with their gated communities and armed guards, they don't need guns.

Fortunately, although Callahan is bruised up a bit, his sense of humor is unscathed. Mazeltov!
