Operation Sleeping Giant

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
~Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto after attacking Pearl Harbor.

I’ve been familiar with the Oath Keepers organization for some time, the “non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.”

I have a lot of affinity for folks like this, even though I’m neither a military person nor a strong religious believer. As an anarchocapitalist, I’m generally in opposition to top-down hierarchical structures, in fact. However, I cut a lot of slack when it’s individuals approaching problems from the other end of the telescope, whether philosophical minarchists or those awakening from the military or government paradigms. It seems to me we want to encourage a coming together of all like-minded people who are honestly pursuing knowledge, rationality and intelligent inquiry even if they were originally involved in schools of thought or organizations that are opposed to a free and sovereign individualist philosophy. At this point in American history we don’t have the luxury of time to nitpick every person over their ideological purity, so long as they’ve honestly taken the first step of freeing themselves from the Matrix, so to speak.

With that in mind, I was delighted when I came across Operation Sleeping Giant, an offshoot of Oathkeepers that’s more focused on practical everyday solutions to the challenges we face as Americans. I was struck right away by founder Stewart Rhodes’ clever allegorical tagline, “Awakening Veterans to Get off the U.S.S. Economic Titanic and Back Onboard the U.S.S. Constitution.” What a great concept to effortlessly communicate their mission statement!

When I saw Brandon Smith’s article in the ‘Economic Security’ section of the site ‘Breaking The Silver Manipulation Barrier,’ I knew I had to call attention to it here on DTOM. It certainly seems to be right in line with Chris Duane’s Silver Shield philosophies, and has a lot of useful information on that subject, as well as the sound advice in many other subjects within the scope of the site.

Check out Operation Sleeping Giant…I wager you’ll be glad you did!

    Thanks Glenn. Great post. Oath Keepers and Operation Sleeping Giant are superb and are ‘critical defense’ for our nation and the world. I’m in.
