The value of a writer’s work can be measure on the influence he has on future generations. Although Samuel Francis
died in 2005,
his work lives on and influences others.
On the Greta Van Susteren show
on Fox News, she interviewed one of the defenders of the Bundy ranch in Nevada. He clearly and persuasively talked about Anarcho-Tyranny,
one of Francis’s main themes.
The interviewee convincingly talked about how the government brought its full forces of armed men, Tasers
and helicopters to take the owner’s cattle. Yet the same government refused to enforce laws on immigration, enforce laws against the political abuse of the IRS
and refuses to implement the laws of Obamacare
because the program is so obviously a disaster.
What Francis emphasized
that the government only enforces laws against law abiding citizens
and refuses to enforce laws against selected minorities. In effect, there is both anarchy
(no meaningful enforcement of the law) and tyranny by only enforcing the laws against those already obeying it.
It should be pointed out that Obama
only follows George Bush in his open refusal to enforce our immigration laws. Under our current immigration law it is illegal—punishable by fines and imprisonment—to employ, harbor or induce illegal aliens to come into or remain in the country.

]But this measure a good deal of the Republican Party, the Dems, and a good deal of organized religion should be in jail.
The death of Sam Francis
was a blow to all patriots. The fact that his work is still valued
is an encouragement for all of us.See earlier letters and articles by Paul Streitz.
