“‘Cursed is the one who moves his neighbor’s landmark.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’” — Deuteronomy 27:17
The CV19 overthrow of constitutional government has occurred with the implicit approval of the Christian church and patriots across Tennessee.
Law is religion externalised, as R.J. Rushdoony has said. Constitutional government respecting the due process rights of the people is one premised on law external to any man, with no one above the law or able to gain control of the law.
In Tennessee it has been replaced by an administrative top-down absolutist system run by executive authority, namely Gov. Lee and subalterns in departments of health. It is the same across the U.S.
The arbitrary medical regime imposed by American governors upon their people is a revolution against their constitutional structures and jurisprudence, and a rejection of the nation’s common law and biblical heritage.
The overthrow of government turns the state away from its Christian and biblical antecedents, which are intended to maintain equity among the people and a means by which to settle conflicts in society. That would include just legislation, just courts, the maintenance of equity by the judicial branch and the labor in office of elected officials who obey their oaths.
Markers = boundaries
The moving of the landmark is a sin as well as a breach of covenant between people and their representative government. It is a sin because it is a theft. It violates the rule of righteous and justice, or of equity. It is connected with usurpation.
“Do not remove the ancient landmark, Nor enter the fields of the fatherless,” Proverbs 23:10. Protecting landmarks is a biblical byword. “Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set,” Proverbs 22:28. “The princes of Judah are like those who remove a landmark; I will pour out my wrath on them like water,” Hosea 5:10.
The moving of landmarks is a concept that should be preached from every pulpit across Chattanooga and Hamilton County with the example of the sin being that moving of protection by Gov. Lee on March 12 against the individuals, men women and children across the state. In his emergency decree, he shifts the police power upon the sick specifically to direct it upon the healthy generally.
This violates the precept of quarantine outlined in Leviticus 13, with the priests given determining who has a contagion and empowered to put such persons under quarantine until healed.
Civil disorder ahead
Overthrowing existing legal and political order will have the poisonous effect among the people. It will reduce compliance with law, and increase dislike of and hatred for officials and their agents. The people are being taught the way of anarchy, disorder and overthrow, seeing their betters get away with it.
For nearly 90 days Gov. Lee and a local health official have acted in a health emergency in violation of Tenn. Code Ann. Title 68,-5-104, with permission of unjust judge Pamela Fleenor in Hamilton County chancery court.
All around us the system of government is breaking down and not functions. Honest elections are impossible, are rigged. Police get away with murder and mayhem without accountability. Sheriffs misuse laws against people using highways. Cops and courts ignore protections against warrantless arrest. Officers routinely lie, plant dope on arrestees, and harass the poor and blacks. Nationally, the economy is heading toward liquidation, energy prices are set to quadruple, Democrat control of the levers of power in Washington will heighten corruption and surplus violence across the land.
Lawless government, violent government will bring the fruit of its misdeeds upon its own head. The prospect of violence, bombings, killings, assassinations, riots, and subterfuges against the established authorities are ahead as the commissions, councils, assemblies, authorities and agencies reject boundaries and reject limits on their activities under statute and in defiance of the Tennessee and federal constitutions.
Resistance is long in coming in this darkening horizon. Americans have submitted themselves and their children to public schools. They are deprived of knowledge of how to fight in court and politically against their pretended masters. Schooling has broken the transmission of ideas of liberty and independence from earlier generations to the current one.
Deprived of basic teachings about doctrines such as interposition, nullification, self-government, the rules of evidence, due process, the operation of courts, proper appeal, private life, legal independence, they feel their only resort is personal violence. Pitirim Sorokin describes this process in his magnificent study, The Crisis of our Age, 1941. Perhaps when the psychical, economic and other pressures become too much to bear, any one or several of them will explode in rage.
Violence & the moved landmark
Officials have ignored the law and refused to be bound by the law. They have no moral grounds on which to stop citizens’ incidental and sporadic acts of revolt and defiance, nor do they have any moral grounds to resist a desire to impeach, overthrow, replace them and their mechanisms of control.
The Tennessee constitution recognizes this lethal power against the status quo in the bill of rights, in the first provision. The people have “an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.”
When the people take their turn at overthrow of the white legal political establishment, of what I call “commercial government,” it won’t be pretty, and may be violent.
The courts and halls of power abuse the people without seeming remedy, as I have reported. Officials should expect a wholesale increase across the state of violence and irrational, self-destructive acts by people who see no recourse in discourse, petition for redress and timely written appeal.
