Our modern toxic ideologies, social, cultural or political, or all of those above three categories mixed together, have always concealed themselves under the Sciences of the Good.

We have the modern examples of the Judeo-Christian Monotheist Cult, Psychobabble, Racialism-Eugenics, Mandatory-Compulsory State Schooling, Modern Clinical Medicine, Prison Punishment-Reform and Global Monopoly Capitalism.

There has been one peculiar, persistent, and venomous ideology that has regularly clothed itself under the benign classifications of both political-economy and social-cultural movements. This same false science has even parasited itself within Modern religion, especially Anglo-American Christianity. It has further appropriated the vocabularies of many other ideologies as if it had invented the Modern World itself.

Such deceit has represented the marvelous and malevolent power of Liberalism or Liberal Democracy.

Others might contend that Communism, International Terrorism and Fascism have represented the world’s most dangerous ideologies. They are wrong again. These brainwashed individuals have watched too much Anglo-American toxic television, saturated through the same diseased mind of Liberalism.

Media experts, also brain-damaged through Liberalism, have decomposed and microwaved their ideological madness within the boardrooms of the BBC channels, and inside American Corporate Media Conglomerates, such as NBC, FOX, CNN, ABC and CBS.

The year was 1750, right in the middle of one of the most violent and vile centuries in human history. It was during this particular century of legal murder and theft that Liberalism birthed its sinister appearance.

A French philosopher-intellectual-‘celebre’ writer, with the name of Voltaire, was ‘vacationing,’ or spending three years of his free time, idling, eating ten course meals, drinking tea, sampling fine wines, sleeping in luxurious beds, taking sumptuous baths, and pouting about the gardens inside the Prussian royal pleasure court. He was not living this princely existence alone however.

He was an invitee among ‘the premier group,’ a first class guest of the Prussian Emperor, Frederick II, or called ‘the Great,’ at his palace in Potsdam, Brandenburg Prussia. There was no German name for this ostentatious monstrosity that bespoke the privilege of family name and wealth. Instead it had a French title, Sans Souci, or in English, ‘without care.’ Voltaire was such a witty and polite guest for three years, that he even had a bedroom-writing studio, named after himself, in one of the fifty or so rooms found in one of the five different palaces!

Here was a ‘radical’ French intellectual-writer, wearing knee breeches, high-heeled shoes, facial makeup and a powered wig, dining in full aristocratic-parasite style with one of the most belligerent European tyrants on the continent, also similarly attired.

The militarist spirit of Machiavelli freely mixed with the free thinking snobbery of European effete manners. This gross display of hypocrisy and aristocratic degeneracy escaped the censure of both men.

All of these ‘cultivated’ gentlemen knew that they were living in ‘special times.’ They were elite men of the Enlightenment, the Illustration. Liberals dressed and paraded around in fine and lavish colors, always a cut above the common peasant or artisan losers that worked with their hands.

Most of these Liberals were actually base hypocrites, egotistical barbarians and pathetic elitists. Liberal Democrats have relentlessly continued on this degenerate path. To this very day, they pledge allegiance to these vile practices of elitism and snobbery.

Liberalism or Liberal Democracy has always operated with one set of people lording over another, while committing horrible institutional violence against inferior groups. Yet, unlike an aristocratic oligarchy of noble birth that makes the rules for everyone else, Liberalism brazenly lies through its teeth. The Liberal Democratic ideology has proclaimed the equality of all men, and now women, before God, with the freedoms of worship, speech, grievances and writing. It practices display the exact opposite.

It calls for democratic ‘elections,’ yet it demands that wealthy political cabals of liars and crooks pick the right candidates for the lower elements of society. These elected ‘officials’ or ‘representatives of the people,’ delegate the laws, and the people simply obey.

The sacred freedoms of Liberal Democracy only work for the elect masters of political-economy and social-cultural distinction. For everyone else, they must survive under the stark brutality of a ‘free market’ capitalist economy and the arts of constant surveillance. The gross hypocrites of Liberalism live in splendor through their family names and elite university educations. The rest of us, social scum, must suffer under the daily violence of socio-economic injustice and police harassment.

If we disobey, the Liberals have the prison inferno waiting for us. Meanwhile, our masters train us early in their ‘state mandatory schools,’ while they later distract and entertain us through their corporate media TV programs, professional sports spectacles and advertising tricks.

Liberalism has always been more violent, and has started more wars than most dictatorships and tyrannies. Why is this? Liberalism believes that all of its wars are good wars, because Liberal Democracies are the only decent government organizations. The danger of this ideology for our modern world is that the leaders of this ideological scam believe their own lies. They are unrepentant hypocrites. They truly believe that Liberal Democracy and a Free Market economy are the only systems that work.

Woe unto the enemies of this most sinister and terrorizing ideology. Liberal Democracies have operated as the most adept practitioners in the dark arts of extermination and genocide. They continue to beat the Nazis, fanatical Communists, and other murderous regimes by long shots.

Democratic regimes have gotten away with their mass murders, and they still come clean from their crimes, even after historical knowledge has exposed their criminality. Think on the United States genocide against the Native nations. History also documents the British forced famines in Ireland, Africa and in India, the French colonial system of ‘white settler enclaves’ versus the local Arab and Berber societies in North Africa.

Concerning ‘the white republics,’ we have the white Australian methods in exterminating the aboriginal nations, the New Zealand white containment and massive land theft against Maori communities, and the white South African ‘black homeland,’ pass system. The most sinister Liberal rule on this Earth is the Zio-Nazi system, which has maintained the largest concentration-death camps in world history against the Palestinians: Gaza and West Bank. There is also Anglo-Canada, with its permitted rapes, tortures and murders of native children forced to attend Christian religious schools run by perverts.

All ideological cabals murder well, but Liberal Democracies are History’s sublime experts in the art of mass murder-genocide, and then covering up the tracks, even hiding the records. The false smiles and suave voices of the lying politicians or parliamentarians makes the heinous acts so much worse.

While Voltaire and the Emperor sampled fine wines and ten course meals at Sans Souci Palace, African slaves in the Caribbean had to endure the tropical hells of unlimited sugar plantation work. Those slaves that refused to obey work orders walked the water wheel. When they couldn’t do it anymore, they fell to their deaths, crushed through the massive wooden and metal blades. The blood and flesh ripped apart in all directions, as the slave master considered another sale for more African flesh and blood. Not one white Caribbean slave master had to face the punishment of mass murder.

Still to this day, British official history proclaims Britain as the defender of ‘abolitionism.’ Yet, it quietly leaves out the historical facts about how the British Empire imported more kidnapped Africans onto its tropical extermination camps than all the other colonial empires during the eighteenth-century.

As Voltaire and the Emperor conversed in French concerning civil religion and aristocratic-royalty society gossip, Irish peasants had to watch their baby children starve to death due to English penury laws that excluded them totally from any legal recourse to Christian charity – meaning foodstuffs to eat. One writer exposed the madness during the Irish Famines, Jonathon Swift. Due to his British education, he had to use satire, the only literary form that could educate the eighteenth-century reading public.

The British Empire of the eighteenth-century was not only cruel to Africans, South Asians and the Irish, it also regularly murdered its poorer English subjects. For the hungry that swarmed the cities, even stealing some bread and mutton to eat, resulted in public hangings. Both English men and women suffered such terrible fates. Their only crime was that they were poor, homeless and hungry.

Many working class English lads had to keep a mindful watch for the military kidnappers that forcibly impressed them into Naval slavery on the high seas. Any resistance met the brutal torture and murder of the Royal Marines who were the cops that watched over them. Legal kidnappers also thronged the poor and working areas of England who often enticed and defrauded their victims to work to death, as ‘indentured servants,’ in Britain’s ‘successful North American plantations.’ This is the true history of Liberal Democracy in Great Britain, the first, national parliamentary system of Modern Europe.

Liberal Democracy has ultimately birthed the most nefarious world empire in human history, the Amerikan Empire, or the United States of America. This is the same freedom-loving, land of opportunity, which has the highest prisoner population in world history, with the exception of the Nazis in the 1940s, and it has the most dense legal codes than any other regime, thereby making most of its citizens walking felons deserving of the Amerikan incarceration nightmare.

This same empire always seems to find another war to start, and yet even when it loses its wars, this cabal of sociopaths has managed to murder millions of innocent civilians through economic sanctions, chemical warfare, massive aerial bombings, starvation, or through military invasions and drone attacks.

Are we Anarchists surprised when see the ‘republics,’ the constitutional monarchies, or the white colonial-settler states, representing France, Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Zio-Nazi Crusader State, line up in defense of the Amerikan Empire? After many political setbacks, Liberal Democracy seems to resurrect its evil intents and recoup the losses. This ideology will not go away.

We Anarchists cannot fight such an ideology because it has seized the apparatus of the State across the globe. This same noxious belief system also retains most of the corporate media on the television.

But we must publicly condemn its practices, which speak louder volumes than its devious advertising and false words. This is a friendly ideology, fooling the ignorant through dishonorable smiles and schooled diction.

Shaking its cowardly hands means the death of millions. Even our sacred hours of sleep are in constant danger from their criminal plots.

Human civilization has made its own history through the tempests of culture and creation.

But with all of civilization’s benefits, humanity simultaneously cursed itself to permanent warfare. Warfare does not just exist on the battlefields with armies and weapons; it also functions inside the unjust and unequal distributions of class power within both society and culture. The warfare of urbanization has represented one of the most absurd attributes, whirling inside the tragic saga of the human condition.

Humans have left the sanctity of the land, the hearth, and the family, in order to transform themselves into subjects under the weary gaze of the rulers. The subjects receive a new identity, and yet they become targets for both the rulers and the enemies of the rulers. Wherever there are political rulers, there are always enemies. A minute faction from the subject population reaches into the ruling clique, while another minute faction joins the enemy camp.

Some human ideas have been beneficial to civilization, such as fire for culinary, metallic-sculpture and martial arts, and the wheel for transport, industry and the ceramic arts.

The human invention of urbanization helped deliver civilization to Homo sapiens sapiens. The urban subject no longer had the obligation to work inside the Earth and hunt for food. They could attend to their own private gardens and enjoy the bounty of culture found in the city.

But there was also a terrible price on their heads, and a nasty fear had piqued those very subjects. What if the rulers became tyrants and then decided to sacrifice their own subjects in order to hold on to their own power? What if the enemies of the rulers surrounded, starved out and sacked the city, enslaving everything away in chains – including the subjects private belongings, and even destroying completely people’s extended families?

One of Urbanism’s stage right onto human history represented the 6 century BCE. On the Gulf Coast of Mexico lived a great people, referred to later in history, as the people of the rubber, or the ‘Olmecs.’

The land was good. The warm, balmy climate offered an agricultural abundance, yet its tempests disciplined the cities. The winds could bite, and yet they spread their ethereal honey on the plants and maize. The rains sometimes drenched and drowned the unwary travelers. Plants still made love to the rain. The reeds were often harsh to touch, but they helped in maintaining the delicate balance. Everything drank from the earth’s sacred blood, and then it all cascaded deep into the rain’s sacred liquid pools.

In the Olmec world, an impressive city of stone had stood proud to the world, and it possessed a marvelous large pyramid of brown boulder rocks in the center. Around the pyramid were bulky grey temple structures and some thick quarry palaces for the ruler’s family, noble relations, and priests. The massive stone pyramid holding the dark glare, gave the subjects a sense of identity, and it seemed that the calendar rituals and religious festivals truly connected to the earth world at both the cave level and sky worlds.

Sacrificial bloodletting enabled the elites to perform the magic effortlessly. All subjects possessed their blood lines to the city’s elites, whether through artisan, merchant or farmer relations. Their blood ties also ran deep into three distinct categories: territory, family and service-labor obligations.

Everybody had their own economic niche and knew their place within the city. There were no vagabonds or beggars, and no one starved on the streets. There weren’t any issues with festering garbage refuse, nor with rampant disease. The city was actually quite small compared to modern standards. It only had a few thousand residents. But each resident existed as part of a grander family, and an even larger kinship group. Everyone recognized his or her own sacred hearth and home within the great urban polity. The Olmecs were living in an almost paradise.

Yet, the urban polity felt unsettled about the constant warfare, the enemies that led sudden attacks, or even the unknown wrath of natural disasters, such as storms, quakes and floods. Like all things in the cosmos, the times began to change, with war and disaster occurring more frequently and more devastatingly. What was actually changing, if the same rituals of sacrifice and devotions had always stayed the same?

The elite families could change the rules for obligatory labor services and tribute taxes. With the continual wars, they often did demand more from the subjects. Living in a great city was a divine gift, but at the same time, the subject lived in dread of the elites’ magical and violent powers. What if the wars led directly to them? What if the city had actually defeated the enemies, yet the enemies had already destroyed all the family and kin ties?

Better to live free and easy than under the tutelage of a powerful, military dynasty – even with all of the blood ties. The subjects slowly began to leave the cities. They preferred to farm out in the mountains, near the water sources, runs, and forest clearings. Eventually, more people began to leave the city for the basic freedom found in the abundant Earth. About two hundred and fifty years later, after so many more years of warfare and emigration, the magical and powerful city stood abandoned.

The ancient city had its days in the light of civilization, and even the ancient Olmec elites knew that their cities would die in the distant future – just like the old dynasties and the old, decrepit great grandfathers.

Our modern cities are vastly different however. These blights on humanity refuse to die and the political-economic elites that run such cities have used every conceivable criminal trick within the shadowy schemas of history to continue their misrule. Our modern monsters want their hells to live forever in order to burn and flay the ignorant and poor masses. And like always, they seem to get away with their horrifying games of corruption.

Our modern cities have become suffocating nightmares representing the perversions of global monopoly capitalism strangled with rampant state consolidation, street level criminality, institutional corruption, and city hall tyranny. Meanwhile, the urban subjects have to shame themselves continuously in watching the slow dying of the homeless, while enduring the public signs that threaten fines and imprisonment with those public, intrusive billboards that advertise useless crap.

Within the chasm of modern urbanism, most of us must deal with street hustling and the brutality of open poverty. Most terribly, the rulers constantly threaten their own citizens in demanding regular payments for all of this madness. The subjects must submit to unending and augmenting protection monies through rent paying, housing frauds, bad public transit, utility extortions, municipal and sales taxes, street fines, parking fees and wage slavery.

Meanwhile, the urban masses endure the miseries of contaminated dirt, household pests, rude behaviors, flim flam artists, common insults and reckless property pimping. The three wild animals that tend to survive in these environments are rats, cockroaches and pigeons. That our modern, urban populations do not end up as crazed lunatics on the streets, explains the marvelous surviving power of the human will under civilization.

Some crap historians have stated that this urban system of decay has always existed within human civilization. This is another abject and hideous lie. The Greek polis had only few thousand actual citizens. Ancient citizens fully participated in the life of the polis, whether at war, peace, festivals or simply speaking truth to power in the public markets and plazas. No citizen had to live a marginalized existence. Those cities were more like medieval monasteries without all the rules, controls, living in cells, and hiding away from the public. The Greek polis lived as a tight community of citizen-warriors-pleaders engaged in the full plenary of an urban, spiritual life.

The imperial Roman city had changed greatly since the days of Peloponnesian Wars in the Hellenic peninsula, (during the fifth century BCE), but the spirit of the polis still survived – and even as ancient imperial Rome, (around the second century AD), had reached a population level of few hundred thousand.

Urban Romans generally lived in two types of housing, either in the ‘domus,’ or a type of round-square urban house with a garden and front patio, or in ‘insulae,’ which were small apartments in block buildings. These homes had no glass windows and anyone could enter the domus patios and the insulae apartments. The Romans had little need for privacy because the Roman state did not imprison and murder their own citizens over personal conduct. People lived in the public realm because the honor of the community was more important for social cohesion.

The insulae dwellers did not pay our contemporary rent extortions as some historians have stated; instead, the residents of the insulae paid for their housing through labor or service obligations, within the personal political economy where the lesser clients worked for their wealthier patrons. Roman insulae dwellers received a regular dole of bread and some other foodstuffs for basic survival. No Roman complained about such a dole because an urban resident received the basic rights for survival and community support.

All Roman citizens could take part in the political and public life of the market, or the ‘forum.’ Citizens had the right to use the public baths and bathrooms of the cities, called, ‘latrinae.’ All citizens gathered their drinking water, cleaning water and community news at the public fountains. Roman public life also frequented the market stalls where each city street had a particular artisan craft on display, called ‘tabernae.’

Roman elites also built their far off cities, called ‘colonae,’ for a specific population size, and all urban citizens, whether soldier or artisan, possessed full inclusion within the greater urban life. Romanization was not just an arrogant Caesar conquering a territory, it also represented an inclusive, small city for all nations that desiring to live the Roman, urban, imperial dream.

How did our modern cities become the horrors of horrors that they are today? We can thank European imperialism and mercantile capitalism, with their invasions, prisons, epidemics, colonialism, slavery and mass murder, around the middle of the sixteenth-century, or the 1500s.

European Colonialism destroyed the ancient cities and the marvelous wonders around the world. It replaced them with the health horrors that still fester in our days. The European colonial invaders who hated washing and cleanliness wanted to infect the rest of the world with their own miseries. In that sense, they were successful.

The European colonial powers enforced mercantile capitalism through its brutal monopolies, massive land thefts, slave trading and export plantations that worked the kidnapped laborers to death. Mass kidnapping rings located off the coasts of West Africa could always replenish the exterminated labor pool.

European colonial statecraft set up the first prisons, Inquisitions, witch hunting tribunals, and other wondrous torture methods to scare the cowardly. European authorities imposed the first forced conversions in order to exterminate the native cultures. The European colonial city had thus transformed into cauldrons of sickness, disease and the bad death. And like all epidemics, they have spread out into the entire human world.

The European colonial elites further perverted modern urbanism through dividing the colonial city into racial caste and social class sections. There was one destitute section for the colonized victims and the other poor losers, where there was another nicer section, usually around the city center, for the colonial bureaucrats and military commanders, inclusive of wealthy slave traders and slave owners who owned their second homes.

We still see such eyesores today. We have our ghettos ransacked with no jobs or brutal jobs that pay badly, abandoned buildings, disease and rodent infestations, run down, street crime ridden sections of town, and next we have our gentrified, hipster zones where the easy job, six figure salary people enjoy clean, well-stocked supermarkets with eclectic cafe-bar-restaurants. The city’s government juntas don’t care about how many people move into their urban wastelands, which chew out their millions of victims. The more poor vermin that enter, the greater the slave wage, reserve army of labor population pool. These massive, megalopolis cities literally feed from the trough of criminal neglect.

Large cities that are also capital cities are even worse off than the megalopolis cities. A large population of the capital city essentially exists on state parasitism. These state spongers include paper pushing government bureaucrats, military, judicial, legislative managers, political executives, numerous guard-security-police forces, and other useless appendages, such as media hacks, corporate consultants and ideological front groups. They offer no useful skills to society whatsoever – except in maintaining the supremacy of central, state and municipal government power.

There is no hope in changing such blights on humanity and on the Earth. The smart losers become wiseguys, gangsters and street thugs, while the sad others have to either beg for the privilege of becoming a wage-rent paying slave, or the real unfortunates, sensitive others, just abandon all hope and wait to die horribly on the city streets. Suicide through urban neglect.

Many fall into the traps and permanent craters of modern, urban life. Some will die painfully from mental-physical illness, or they will become hopeless addicts partying on bad, cheap drugs. Some others just spend the rest of their days in the prison-gulag-concentration camp system. A few will make it as low-level, legal assassins for the state’s military institution. Eventually, poverty, war and misery will tear apart most of their fragile minds and bodies.

Living within our modern urban pits, the political-economic elites have continued their relentless war against us. We Anarchists know this truth and so we only have one option remaining: we must fight against such injustices through both our dignity and honor.

We can squat abandoned buildings. We could wheat paper and spray paint over their threatening signs, or we can set up spontaneous parties in the city streets. We might also set up free kitchens, guerrilla gardens, and feedings, or arrange a free, bartering market in a public park – or even occupy central city locations and make them our own domains.

We have only our personal wills to mental freedom – these gifts still remain with us.

Nostalgia for past historical epochs is often due to people’s desires for the future, rather than a true yearning for the distant past.

A good example has represented the American Wild West with its legends, cinema genre, TV shows, comics, museums, historical reenactments and tourist trap towns across the western US. Visitors want to see, smell and taste the real thing: a chuck roast baking over the grill, the old smell of black gunpowder, touching an old Colt six-gun revolver or a Winchester lever-action repeating rifle, the dilapidated wooden homes found in ghost towns and walking into a real live saloon with shutter doors, and a long wooden bar with lots of whiskey and sweet wine. The card tables now exist inside of casinos.

Some locals-touts in the tourist trap towns still dress that old way, with the cowboy boots, big rimmed hats, long overcoats, pants held up with suspenders, shirts done with bolo ties, and a few even have leather chaps and spurs, as if they just dismounted off a horse.

They even act their parts with the long hair, the long moustaches and the stubble on the chin. Meanwhile, the women have that late nineteenth-century Victorian style dress – inclusive of blouses, small vest jackets, heeled shoes, pant undergarments and corsets, with their long hair done up in those old Progressive era buns and curls. Both the men and the women like their whiskey and tobacco, but there is always one thing missing during the reenactments – the guns.

As a historian, I can definitely state that most people openly carried guns during the American Wild West days. Not all cowboys, ranchers, merchants and barkeepers carried weapons on them, but enough did to make life a lot more polite than our contemporary times. A lot more men than women carried pistols on their hips, but most farm women had their shotguns ready for action – if some bad guys came around the bend. This was especially true in the South and in the West.

About a hundred and forty years ago, not much time in the grand history of our planet, open gun carrying in the US was just about as common as putting on one’s own clothes. It was not just the Wild West that had people carrying weapons, but also the big cities in America, such as New York City, Chicago and San Francisco.

What happened to those days? Well, the United States has become a mostly urban population base. The local dictator, urban politicians don’t like having armed populations walking around – except for the city’s police forces. Where there exists lots of monopoly capitalism, city hall corruption, high taxes, and police state injustice, all of which now thrive in those massive megalopolises, people feel alienated, angry, frustrated, and the rage begins to fry on high heat.

In order to strike fear into those urban populations, the local, ‘elected’ tyrants run prisons that resemble torture centers, while the local police act more like paramilitary forces. So far, this method of social control seems to have worked out just fine.

America’s large urban populations survive as disarmed marks. Dastardly rudeness and institutional violence run rampant in those cities, and the regular citizens have to look over their shoulders when walking alone in the dark, crossing into an unknown area, or when entering their buildings. The urban politicians and elites get bodyguards, real police protection, and easy concealed weapons licenses, while the urban wage slaves can hopefully buy a spay canister of mace.

There are a few large cities in America where people can still legally open carry, but most police normally stop the open carriers and ask them for identification. A few times, the police have actually arrested the people and have taken away their weapons – never to return the weapons to the original owners. Type ‘open carry detain arrest’ on YouTube and you can watch the horrendous videos exposing such legal injustice.

Some businesses now ban open carrying on their premises, and the laws in many ‘gun friendly’ states often prohibit open carrying on school, government and post office properties.

I have even watched pro-gun guys with YouTube channels saying publicly that open carrying is stupid. Many Americans admire the days of the Wild West, yet open carrying has the reputation of an old, bygone historical era.

I believe that if we gun owners want to keep our cultural power inside of the United States, then open carrying must continue. If one lives in an anti-open carrying state, then the gun people can form an open carrying group to publicly walk around and hopefully change the law.

Like the days of the Wild West, people acted with a lot more prudence, and behaved with better manners. There were just as many rude nasty types, sinister outlaws in those days, just like in our current days. This is the reason for the nostalgia of the Wild West: people could defend their honor and their life without having to ask the State for permission. Only two social groups in the actual United States now have that freedom.

The first group represents the upper level economic and political elites, such as owners and major stockholders of multinational corporations, old money inheritance trust funders, high court judges, a few top celebrities, military generals and admirals, and top-heavy, well-connected politicians. The second group revolves around the state gangs, such as Federal government officials that carry weapons, such as FBI and CIA agents-spies, and the multiple law enforcement-police forces found across the land. Prison guards also have the right to use their arms with corresponding legal immunities, yet only when working inside the prison walls.

The rest of the population, meaning us, have to fear the terrible vengeance and brutal fury of the State.

The Open Carry of firearms is still a revolutionary act. It is open for all to see and it simply states that the armed person will defend him or herself. Most importantly, open carrying informs the non-gun owning public that we have history on our side. Guns have always been an important part of American culture – and we will make sure that they stay that way.

The less open carrying that regular citizens see on the streets, the more the fear of guns predominates within the general population, while the open carrying of firearms by police forces and government agents seems quite normal. If this status quo continues, the future of guns in American culture will find a notorious reputation.

Some of the non-gun owning public perceives guns through a dangerous black and white scenario: either the good guys, the cops, carry guns, or the bad guys, the criminals, use guns. We know that this is not true – but if the regular people never open carry, then this plot might become the actuality.

If we still have our Second amendment rights, then gun owners should exercise them. The most powerful method is the open carry of a loaded firearm on the hip. This includes a sturdy belt that slides into the holster. The holster needs to have a clip or a fastener in order to hold the firearm snugly inside the holster pocket. This type of holster keeps the firearm in place eliminating any fear of the firearm dropping, falling, hitting the ground or negligently discharging a round.

A firearm that drops out of a cheap, unfastened holster, falls down to the ground, and might negligently fire – and even kill someone, destroying the lives of both the open carrier and the victim. Anti-gun Liberal-Leftist fascists use those accidents to defame all of us. With this right to open carry comes the responsibility of handling a tool that terminates life on a trigger squeeze.

When we publicly open carry, eyes begin to glance at us, so we should not look too bizarre or eccentric. Whatever side our firearm is on, then we should not play around with that side or nervously dabble our fingers across the holster. The holster is simply another part of our clothes.

I personally place my keys and other stuff inside the other pants pocket that doesn’t have the holster by it. I do not use the pants pocket on the side of the holster. When visiting a bar or any place where I plan to drink booze, I do not open carry. For me, alcohol, bar-restaruant patrons, and guns don’t mix.

And finally, the Hollywood movie version of the double dueling desperado with the two-gun holsters on both hips is simply a myth. I’m sure a few outlaws might have used that method, but most of them probably didn’t live that long to write about it.

I have only recently openly carried, and I have not had any problems with business owners or the police – yet. What saddens me greatly is that I live in a western state that has legal open carry of firearms, and I have seen very few people open carrying in the town that I currently live in. The few open carriers have been either the employees who work at the local gun store, or once and while, a guy just coming back from the range or hunting.

Open carriers ought to stick together, and hopefully with more visibility of open carry, we can invite other courageous people to join the open carry movement representing men and women, diverse ethnicities, creeds, and sexual orientations.

This last part is important because the anti-gun Liberal fascists in the corporate media like to stereotype us as a bunch of white male, super heterosexual, super macho, right-wing asshole, fat guys with genetically attached baseball caps carrying the symbol of ignorance magically stamped across our foreheads. The big city despots in America can curse us all they want, but we stand firm as free, courageous and armed people who are not scared to exercise our rights. Most importantly, we know our own history.
