in mind: Your job as a Conservative is to fight against the corruption and despotic Leftism in government that we are currently seeing. (And I’m sorry for the length of this post)
And there are some important lessons I learned from SERE school in the military. SERE stands for Search, Evasion, Rescue, Escape. Every pilot has to go through it. It aims to teach pilots and others how to act if they are shot down and taken as a prisoner of war.
Here is the take-home lesson, and the one we as Conservative need to learn: The Lefty enemy wants to discourage you. They want you to think that all is lost, that there’s no need to face the pain of further resisting. That it’s over.
BUT, that’s a lie. It’s geared to defeat you, to make you more malleable, to turn your pain into shrugging apathy. In fact, sometime I hear soi-disant Conservatives spout a version of that–“It’s ALL corrupt and we should just not vote at all!” NO!
So we Conservatives need to act like POWs. And the goal is to stymie the Lefties who have captured so much of our society! Anyone who advises you to just give up is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Bank on it!
First and most importantly, never give up. They indeed may break you today–we are ALL human and can be broken. But keep in mind, tomorrow is a new day. Maybe they did indeed break you today–it happens to the best and bravest.
But tomorrow is a new day. Make them break you again tomorrow. And again the next day. And the next… They may indeed “break” you–make you discouraged and apathetic and supine. OK, but tomorrow is another day. Don’t stay broken.
Do what you can. Resist in seemingly small, relatively safe ways. You don’t need to be a “hero” and do huge acts of resistance. Little acts build up.
And psychologically (and practically), there are HUGE benefits to a rebellion, no matter how small. Delay the evil for 10 minutes. Maybe you will find a way to delay it for 10 more. Do what you can, over and over and over!
Go underground. For example, on this blog I try very hard not to identify myself. I use a VPN. Could I be “outed?” Of course! But I take measures to try and avoid that. Because the Left is vindictive and hates free speech and moral agency. I know very well that I am taking risks for speaking out–look at Trump, for Pete’s sake! BUT…
“This little star of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…” And your country desperately needs you.
But I have already been a collaborator! OK, but today is a new day. It is a lie that all is lost. Start over right this moment. YOU are not forever lost. Start over.
