9/9/13

Liberty activist Adam Kokesh remains behind bars in a D.C. Jail, but has, after two months, been released from solitary confinement. Kokesh spokesman Jeffrey Phillips says the transfer happened this past weekend, with Kokesh moved to the general population of a lower level security wing of the jail.

Kokesh is now allowed to use the phone, a right he had been denied, but visitation remains questionable.

Agree

Adam does so much better when he is not a prisoner of the enemy. Always better to be the fighting opposition than a pow. Enlightened disengagement. The first word Enlightened means staying out of pow statis if possible. You can do more good that way. My sympathy for Adam's predicument.

Well said!

Some people can only insult others when they have no facts. It's ironic to say someone has small brains, when only people with small brains can only insuly when they don't have a good argument. I would rather have someone on my side that stands for principle and has the guts to do what is right, than someone who just mocks from the sidelines.

Calling for an armed march on Washington,

is playing "chicken" with The Gestapo in Waiting.
The Powers that Be are just itching for a mob situation, so that they can clamp down on even more of your liberties.
Cool heads are needed to turn this ship around...not hot heads and agitators.
The liberty movement is already under attack, we don't need trouble from inside the ranks.

Old Gandhi was a bit of an

agitator, always pushing the "buttons" of the authorities. He was repeatedly arrested and imprisoned. He led a "mob" in the criminal activity of evaporating seawater to make salt. Another time he was arrested for conspiring to overthrow the government, a charge he willingly pleaded guilty to and was imprisoned for, of course.

Snowden fits the bill too, agitator. The list goes on.

I can sympathize with your position and I agree that a cool head is beneficial and necessary. I also believe that we need more activists to engage in civil disobedience in order to dismantle the legitimacy of authoritarian structures by exposing unjust and unconstitutional "laws" to the light of public awareness and scrutiny.

Tolerating Adam's actions does not equate endorsing them. As far as I can tell, he was caged for engaging in non-violent and constitutionally protected behavior, so personally I have no problem with his choices. I appreciate the work he is doing even though I have no desire to follow him nor do I seek to conduct myself in any manner similar to his. I make my own choices according to the unique desires of my heart, as should everyone else in their own lives. Do no harm, and seek to tolerate and embrace our differences as this is the key to sustainable diversity, a core fundamental strength.

There isn't just one "correct" path. What I observe seems to be limitless numbers of unique paths (globally) simultaneously carving out this territory of freedom which we seek to create. We are entirely interdependent upon one another for the success of this cause. Positive energy fuels creativity, a crucial thing many of us could probably agree we need loads more of.

I really like your reply.

History shows that at the right time, with the right protest, infiltrators are used to cause a riot, or panic.
It always ends badly.

Our founding fathers did much more

than what Adam ever talked about doing, with british rule that was doing less to the people than our government is doing to us, so I gues they had small brains too. How long do we keep cool heads? The government sure isnt backing down from tyranny.

These are

different times my friend. Britain ruled a colony, this is a fight for the Globe

And the cool heads are on our side.

When you violently bust into someone's home to arrest them and hold them in solitary confinement for peacefully protesting then it is you that is the hot head.
Adam used no violence. The right to bare arms is guaranteed by our constition and diminished by our gov.

So if you call it playing "chicken" so be it. This "game" Adam played is historic when 99.999% of the public is not willing to test these waters. Adam is essentially begging for a peaceful resolution, while the bully(our gov) is still trying to show off.

Deep down everyone is Libertarian.
Live and Let Live, form of government.

Never waste a good crisis as Hillary would say, we don't need to create the crisis they are waiting for.

What worries me is that "they"

will create the crisis by placing paid agitators into something like an armed march.

Oooooh, an armed march

Be afraid, very afraid!

Your sarcasim shows your lack of

history. It may pay to brush up a little. Political Zionism has been around for a few centenaries now....have you?

no, no, jill, tell us what

no, no, jill, tell us what you REALLY think!?
