Every passing day, we are facing the barrel of the gun if not just minutes away from a terrorist’s ticking bomb. No threat to life, liberty and freedom is more dangerous than this threat of being killed or bombed to kingdom come any time of the day. We live in terror more than we admit.
We are misled if not misguided by the compass of terror that we follow blindly. “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” But this decrepit guide in the wilderness is leading us right into the barrel of the gun. We deserve the right to live, therefore I vehemently disagree with the tenet of this dictum.
In one of my papers in graduate school, I wrote these lines unequivocally: “Only liberty and national security purchased at any cost can guarantee the people’s right to live.
“With guns in their hands, a group of self-proclaimed patriots neither secure nor guarantee the individual right to live – only the people themselves who formed a democratic Government, can provide the necessary tools the nation needs for national security, and to secure the safety of individuals in the face of imminent danger.
Thus the threat not just to destroy but to kill is the most dangerous threat to life, liberty and freedom. It is more menacing than the threat of dictators to enslave, and of politicians to plunder and to corrupt the nation, to rob and to steal the people’s money and impoverish them.”
But to continue this editorial report, I want first to correct a bad error on the part of self-proclaimed patriots who run to the people’s rescue, when they use this famous quote “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase …” to support their craving, in fact obsession, for liberty and freedom. It was not Benjamin Franklin who originally made this declaration … it was Richard Jackson.
Let me quote for you what’s in the record: “This was used as a motto on the title page of An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania. (1759); the book was published by Franklin; its author was Richard Jackson. The variant of this [motto] was published as: Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
It is imperative to straighten out this incorrect notion, for the record. Citing the right source of this famous quotation would no longer embarrass critics when they write about abuse of liberty and freedom. Notice carefully that when they use this quotation based on a wrong source to criticize the Government’s campaign against terrorism … they always score a perfect landing in the wrong airport! It is safe but in the wrong direction.
The threat to kill and to destroy came to public view only recently. As I have pointed out in many of my comments in Freedom Forum, it came out from the study of certain variants of “mental illness”, conducted by the National Institute of Health, and from the reports of the study’s results:
“Although certain variants of the illness have been around for many years, it is only in the last decade or so that the more virulent and infectious strains have appeared. This is most likely due to the rapid buildup of government, at all levels, during the 1980's. Closely parallel to this trend was an explosion in the number of cases in which individuals were diagnosed as having unfounded fears concerning such.
“Clinical Manifestations and Diagnosis Anti-Government Phobia is marked by extreme suspiciousness toward government. Onset is acute. Symptoms start almost immediately after a run-in with some agency or institution of the government, or when the patient is introduced to anti-government propaganda, in one form or another, by a self-styled "patriot." Common ways in which this harmful, anti-government propaganda is spread include: books, pamphlets, magazines, newspapers, audiotapes, videotapes, short-wave and conventional radio programs, computer bulletin boards, and various Internet sites.
“Upon exposure to "patriotic" propaganda, the patient mysteriously begins to imagine hidden links between unrelated current events, weaving these gross distortions of reality into a complex delusional web; a labyrinth of conspiracy theories with all imagined clues leading straight to the federal government. With further exposure, the patient becomes increasingly paranoid, and slowly manifests withdrawals from reality. However, mental deterioration is usually so gradual that the patient is often unaware of it.
“In the eyes of the so-called "patriots," the relentless drive to indoctrinate others with extremist political beliefs is seen as a righteous and compulsory act to save their "self-destructing" nation. Wildly fantasizing that America can somehow turn back the clock to better times, which in reality never existed, many "patriots" feel obligated to quote constantly from the Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the writings of the Founding Fathers. In an ironic twist of fate, when "patriots" expose others to their divisive anti-government propaganda, through their misguided efforts to restore "individual liberty," they are actually infecting them with an extremely contagious mental illness.”
At the beginning of this editorial expose’ is a quote from our Founding Fathers of which “patriots” afflicted with mental illness that the NIH report described, felt obligated to print.
Diagnostic reports of variance of mental illness could be any of the following [printed verbatim or as is]:
Acromania, a violent form of mania; it is an incurable insanity. Read more: http://www.faqs.org/ologies-isms/Ide-Lef/Insanity.html#ixzz1kxpmkuGb.
Paranoia, a mental disorder characterized by behavior that stems from an elaborately constructed system of delusions of persecution and grandeur… paranoidism

Schizophrenia, a psychotic condition marked by erratic behavior, withdrawal from reality, and intellectual and emotional deterioration. Also called dementia praecox. Read more: http://www.faqs.org/ologies-isms/Ide-Lef/Insanity.html#ixzz1kxpBcz7T.
Acromania and Schizophrenia are more prevalent. They manifest in what comes out from the mouth of the afflicted. I will cite some of those for your information:
“Any linkage between the British government and these terrorist outrages is completely without foundation.” From Jack the Ripper. Like today’s terrorist, the Ripper denied his terror as a serial killer of women who walked by night. “One day men will look back and say I gave birth to the twentieth century.” [Delusion of grandeur.] Does this delusion of grandeur remind you of someone? C’mon, think. Don’t be shy.
Charles Manson, a notorious psychopath jailed for life has his signature of denying the multiple murders he orchestrated: “Believe me, if I started murdering people… there'd be none of you left!” Manson’s severe case of mental disorder can be categorized as advance Acromania and Schezophrenia. His hallucinating mouthpiece signature is familiar.
Theodore John Kaczynski, the Unabomber, killed by sending mail bombs to his victims in protest of his imagined Technological Slavery. Reports stated that “He was the target of the FBI's most expensive manhunt ever…” This is his urge to kill: “In the modern world soldiers fight because they have been brainwashed into believing in some kook ideology such as that of Nazism, socialism, or what American politicians choose to call "freedom".” Does this sound familiar? Some dangerous Kooks say this every day. A notorious Kook expressed this even more eloquently in many of his published writings urging the public to kill government officials, including military and police officers.
Jared Loughner, demented Arizona Shooter was “a United States Military recruit at MEPS in Phoenix …” Without any provocation, he shot “At least 18 people … including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, at a public event in Arizona hosted by elected leaders and other government officials. Six have been declared dead, one of them a child.”
After the shooting Loughner declared to the Media that he was not a terrorist. This is what came out from his own mouth:
“The argument to call me a terrorist is Ad hominem….read the United States of America's Constitution to apprehend all of the current treasonous laws.
"In conclusion, reading the second United Sates Constitution, I can't trust the current government because of the ratifications: The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar.” You can deduce from these statements how serious his mentally ill was.
But as a killer and a bomber, Timothy James McVeigh’s terrorism was incomparable. His murderous act was “the deadliest event of domestic terrorism in the United States, and the deadliest act of terrorism within United States borders until the September 11.” [Main Stream Media.] How did he justify the infamous Oklahoma City bombing he perpetrated without any sign of remorse? “Whether you wish to admit it or not, when you approve, morally, of the bombing of foreign targets by the U.S. military, you are approving of acts morally equivalent to the bombing in Oklahoma City.” He said this after he was sentenced to death and executed for the massive destruction he created, killing at least 168 people.
For the sake of national security and for the safety of the American people, I warned the public through this website of today’s terrorists that the NIH identified as mentally ill. The proof of their mental illness is in what they repeatedly say in public, and also in their published writings.
In an article “When Should You Shoot A Cop” written by Larken Rose, this is what Rose said: “I said, more bluntly than many ‘gun rights’ folks do, that I want you, the public, to have the ability to kill government agents, both military and police.” In essence, did you find any difference from what those terrorists that I have just cited, had said and/or how many innocent victims they already killed?
To publicly “incite”, “persuade”, “induce” or even “command” people to kill with such blinding passion if not uncontrollable hatred, hardly comes from a healthy mental disposition let alone from a normal mind. If it is not already a felony to do such inducement or command to kill, still it cannot be denied that this murderous persuasion or “influence” to commit murder is no doubt extremely dangerous. Although the record says this commanding armchair terrorist has not killed yet personally by himself, how many had already been killed because of his public campaign to kill “government agents, both military and police”, only God knows. Besides, there is no doubt that the victim’s blood is in this terrorist’s hands.
It is for this reason that a terrorist’s threat to kill and destroy is the most dangerous threat to life, liberty and freedom. Since 911, our intelligence community has been working overtime. None of those threats were taken lightly.
