Why join a militia?

Because you are a free being, with rights that need defending from those who do not respect them.

Because among those rights are the rights to self-defense and free association.

Because there is nothing wrong with joining a militia, unless they intend to start a fight.

Because the state can’t always protect you, and a militia can fill some of the gaps in that protection.

Because militias have an undeserved bad reputation, which good citizens like yourself can help improve.

Because society is less civilized than we deceive ourselves into believing, and that veneer can peel off faster than an Ikea paint job.

Because certain traditions are worth honoring and defending and promoting.

Because there are real-life, next door problems that the military is not being used to stop.

Because the government is not your friend.

Because you already are a militia of one.

    Join a militia?

    We already are the militia by virtue of our heartbeat and respiration.

    Maybe we ought to say *participate* in your local militia group, and put some emphasis on peoples’ activity or inactivity.

    That’s true, as far as it goes, but most people don’t realize how far it does go.

    What you describe is the difference between unity and union. We are a militia, as legally defined – there is a union. But we are not in unity; that is, we do not train together in local units, by and large. You need both unity and union in order to act as one.
