What’s the point? 

Simple.  Lots of people talk, complain, and whine about abuse of their rights.  But, they never understood underlying principles and never prepared for the responsibility of rights.

And they stupidly fell for the notion that just because we might all seem equal in God’s eyes (hey, only God knows that for sure), we certainly are not equal on here on this rock.  Like Orwell’s governing pigs said, “Some people are more equal than others.”  We ALL need  “Equalizers” to keep the pigs from running over us.

  1. The FIRST equalizer is intelligent parents
  2. The SECOND equalizer proper application of training principles at home.
  3. The THIRD equalizer is common sense
  4. The FOURTH equalizer is a good classical education, which woefully few of us have
  5. The FIFTH equalizer is personally accumulated and protected WEALTH
  6. The SIXTH equalizer is physical power, including training in body, management and use of weaponry
  7. The SEVENTH equalizer is political activism and power – the moral, physi and financial support of a large number of people

If you haven’t gotten busy building your equalizers, DO IT NOW.
