Crowd Defense™ #5: Pre-Violent Solutions Post Charlottesville

The things I’ve been warn­ing about have come to pass. The FBI has opened an inves­ti­ga­tion into the “alt-right.”  What do you think that means?  It means that they have wide rang­ing pow­er to do what­ev­er they want.  Who’s alt-right?  Who isn’t?  I’m not sure any­more.  As a cit­i­zen­ry, we’ve

The gov­ern­ment is poised to come down on these groups.  And that was always the goal of lib­er­al ter­ror.  They want to increase gov­ern­ment pow­er until they bring about a total­i­tar­i­an state.  They can do that by win­ning or los­ing, as long as they

The Berke­ley riot at the Milo Yiannopou­los event on Feb­ru­ary 1, 2017 is the riot that gal­va­nized a lot of us. Now, the woman famous­ly pep­per sprayed at the event has filed a law­suit against Berke­ley.  In case you don’t want to read the whole com­plaint, I am repro­duc­ing the

Crowd Defense™ #1: The Accidental Partner meets the Criminal Accessory

Self-defense isn’t good enough any­more because you could face an attack by sev­er­al hun­dred peo­ple. But, orga­niz­ing a group for defense presents a lot of prob­lems.  Sev­er­al ques­tions and exam­ples are pre­sent­ed below to high­light some of those prob­lems.  The analy­sis that fol­lows is not legal advice.  It is writ­ten

Shields in Contemporary Self and Crowd Defense

We all saw the video of the Based Stick­man Kyle Chap­man. And, I’m sure we all liked the shield. He made great choic­es with his gear. But the shield real­ly stood out to me. I have been think­ing about the use of bal­lis­tic shields since the New­ton Mas­sacre, and I
