Agent of Shields

In a recent defense of mandatory national service, establishment media apparatchik Mark Shields writes:

Contrary to Ayn Rand, we all do owe much to each other and to our country. And mandatory two-year national service – civilian or military – is imperative to help us understand the responsibility, as well as the rights, of citizenship and build our connections with our fellow citizens. Two years, with no deferments and no exemptions.

It’s an unintended compliment to Ayn Rand that Shields feels the need to bash her in order to defend slavery.

    The Marine Corps builds Shields.

      No, the marine corp builds despotism. Wars exist because the state needs them to. In creating a standing army, we create war.

    As the case of James Harris Jackson shows, building a connection to one’s fellow citizens via military service is perfectly compatible with running a sword through them when you meet them on the street.

    So long as we talk, we fail to act. Where is the revolution? It does not exist? Why not? Because we are politicking. We are not revolutionizing. We say that thi such & such is good, that such & such is bad. We fondle zero state society ideas. We die utterly. Let’s live. Let’s go balls to the wall, all in absolute transformation of the planet earth & the human race from despotism to Liberty. All that we practice is destructive, in America. The only thing that we really believe in is despotism. Can we be made free? No. not until we come together in a huge way & convince people that this system can only bring about more destruction. I say there is no revolution. I say politics kill. & yet here I am, talking…

    Mark Shileds should shut up, because I doubt he had reached adulthood had he been born in Sparta. He is lucky to live in an age of cowards.
