From Gun Control to Food Control

The civil government's tactics for extending control always start at the fringes and move inward. Gun raids begin with weird cult groups like the Branch Davidians or neo-Nazi militia groups. Food raids begin with a small minority of people who go to the trouble and expense of buying natural, raw foods.

We don't have to go overseas to find examples of state-sponsored terrorism. (See this article and this article)

And then there are the horror stories of raids on homeschool families that would fill a whole series of books. The issue is not quality of education (home education has been proved superior over and over), but rather who owns the children.

Indeed, that is the issue behind all the bureaucrat and police state tactics: "Who owns the citizens?" If the civil gov't owns you, then the civil gov't has the authority to determine what you learn and how. It also has the authority to determine what you eat, how much, or even whether or not you eat at all.

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. (1Co 6:20)

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. (Gal 5:1)
