Be annoying

September 29, 2020

I have long been a fan of Colion Noir. His approach to an unapologetic defense of the right to keep and bear arms has always been refreshing. That remains true in this video:

I agree with him. We cannot shrink back from our defense of a fundamental right, for surely those who are opposed to that right (often under the name of “common sense restrictions”) will neither shrink back nor cease their assault. We must continue to be annoying, if we love liberty.

Of course, not shrinking back should be our approach to all our rights*. There will always be those for whom individual liberty is an easy-to-compromise thing. They will insist time and again that individual rights are “important” while also insisting they carry water for social utility, and they will never stop. We, then, dare not cease in our defense of liberty. Again, those who love liberty must continue to be annoying. Like Malcolm Reynolds, we must “aim to misbehave,” and do so both legally and aggressively lest we one day be forced to do otherwise.

*Understand that when I refer here to rights, I am speaking of inviolable negative rights, those rights with which government is prohibited to interfere and which inhere in the human condition.
