Guns, Freedom & the Control of man (it's gonna be a long one)
After I got done ranting last night in my NRA ballot post (make sure to read it) about gun rights, self defense, defending against tyranny, never being a slave to any political system or government and freedom, I was feeling in a freedom and rebellious mood and knocked the movie Free State of Jones off my long awaited list. I have been wanting to watch this movie for a long time. All I have to say is, damn was it good! It's based off actual events which is really cool too.
Although it is just a movie I think there are a lot of good talking points about that era that need to be discussed this day in age that even Hollywood couldn't suppress. The ones I am going to focus on are guns, freedom and the control of man.
I think this movie does a fantastic job illustrating the importance of guns for self-protection, protecting your property and preserving your own freedom. It doesn't matter if it's a bad guy looking to victimize you, or the government coming to collect/steal what is not rightfully theirs as seen in slides 1,2,3,6 &7. The guns were the great equalizer which prevented the theft and overburden of the government on the citizens which could have led to lack of income and starvation due to stolen supplies and goods.
The guns were also what was prohibited from black men because without guns, they were powerless and couldn't fight back against their oppressors. This can be seen in nearly every major region of the world where slavery still exists both for labor and sex or where government's exude their power over the people and leave them powerless and no discourse against government control. Slides 4 & 5 show what happens when the powerless are given the tools to fight back against oppression. Freedom! (Cont in comments🔽🔽)
