am a Cpl. in the Army and just returned from Iraq. I carried my shotgun
all year on my back in your shotgun scabbard, and it worked great! I
was glad to have it around several times, and it proved to be an easy
way to keep the shotgun handy for the squad. Thanks for your great
product, and for your support of our troops!!|

Got the T-shirt....IT ROCKS!!!!
Sir, The Falcon Chest Harness finally arrived to me at Camp Taji, Iraq.
Thank You! It is now set up for fitting over my IOTV and Battle
(already the guys are asking who to order one from, so you might be getting a few more requests!!!).
Dear SF company.
for sending another t-shirt it looks great the boys in the unit will
want one when they see it. I'll be sending them right to you.
Another happy customer
I was stationed at Camp Pendleton I was in Weapons Company 3/5. The
unit made us t-shirts with the 3/5 logo/emblem/crest, "Consumate
Professionals". I was honorable discharged in 1999 and the t-shirt has
been long-gone. I searched a couple of web site to find a shirt with the
logo/emblem/crest but there was no luck. It didn't take me long to
search this site before I found what I was looking for. When the shirt
arrived it was better than what I expected. I love the t-shirt and wear
it with pride and often. Thank you SpecialForces.com
Your Shirts are the best.
Thank you for being so prompt with my order, and the refund as well.
I thought a little constructive thoughts were in order.
The "HRT" boot knife is well constructed. I had to "hone" the edge though, both sides,to get it up to spec.
for the "GI USMC Combat Knife"......Well, it wasn't really a K-Bar, at
least not one that I've ever seen. It read "US", and above that it read
"Ontario". No worries though, after I used a ceramic sharpening stone on
both the small back edge and the full length edge, I'm quite pleased
with them both. Oh, I almost forgot, both were very pretty well
I'll be purchasing again from you in the near future.
Dear Special Forces
I received my order i have to say that is better than i expected! Thank you and you'll hear fom me soon.
They turned out GREAT!!!!!! Thanks. I will be back for other things.
Thanks Folks. As always you have been most polite and professional. Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Jack And Melanie Edgar
That looks awesome! Is there any logo on the front? Can I buy these off
the website? I'm sure a lot of SWCC guys are going to want these!
Amanda Van Every
love the art work. They are awesome. I'll be ordering mine right after
this. Thanks for all the work. I am recommending you guys to all the
other battalions and ODA's.
Just to let you know all items have been recieved, fantastic quality as all ways.
Cheers Andrew and best wishes for the New Year.
Boundaries of Tolerance
in its pure sense is toleration of everything. This is the opposite of
today's political liberalism which is intolerant. Today's Liberals and
special interest groups are like tyrants: They demand tolerance at the
same time offering none in return.
"Broad-minded is just another way of saying a
fellow's too lazy to form an opinion"
is the harbinger of revolt creeping and chipping away at individual
freedoms like a well concealed predator waiting for its prey to fall
into its trap. It weaves a web of destruction and spreads like cancer
softening the ground in which the seeds of revolution are planted.
Liberalism infiltrates every facet of life - family, marriage,
economics, education, politics and Christianity, turning the people
against the source of their stability, freedom and authority. Every norm
and standard of the foundation of our country and culture is ridiculed
and attacked. History is distorted and revised to support their false
claims. Liberalism knows no bounds in its quest to destroy personal
freedom using every trick in the book to lull, deceive and disarm
people. Exposing and leaving them helpless to resist tyranny.
have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the
intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful
to these teachers."
Kahlil Gibran 1883 - 1931
is one of the liberal establishment's great tricks to destroy personal
freedom and they are using it every way they can to take advantage. They
ask for tolerance only as a way to get their way and accuse anyone who
opposes them of being intolerant, hateful or stupid whatever they think
will stick and then they play the victim card. Hardly a day goes by that
I don't hear the word tolerance being used in the liberal media as a
weapon of self destruction against those ignorant of the boundaries and
motives of the ones preaching tolerance.
Tolerance is like
anything else in this life it can be abused, distorted and used to
deceive people. We have enemies now that are playing on people's
weaknesses and ignorance in a way that cannot be seen by the naive till
the enemy has achieved their goal. They are patient taking a little at a
time and then asking for more and more growing more powerful and
spreading like a cancer. The ignorant are surprised and rarely really
get it and some of us that see what they are doing feel helpless to stop
them watching the evil seeds grow and gain power.
"It is easy to be tolerant of the principles of Tolerance
was designed to give people their own privacy and freedom. It was never
designed to tolerate behavior destructive to our personal freedoms and
other people if you have none of your own."
What I mean by this for example is a parent should
never tolerate his child lying because he knows that this type of
behavior is destructive, soon the kid will believe its own lies and
can't tell the truth from a lie. But then there are other behaviors we
tolerate to a point to allow our children to learn for example like
maybe we give some money to our kid to buy something they want. We watch
the kid run around the store and maybe spend the money unwisely but we
tolerate it so the kid will learn from his mistakes how to spend money
In these two examples one type of behavior is not
tolerated because it is destructive and in the other it was tolerated to
give the child freedom to learn and prepares the child to take on
responsibility for itself (personal freedom). I use to watch "Leave it
to Beaver" when I was a kid and it was full of examples of what to
tolerate and what not to. But the sixties came along and liberalism
brought false progress and innovation replacing simple truth. This has
destroyed the freedom we once knew in our country. Some of us have been
taught simple truths or principals learning responsibility in the home
and others unfortunately for society have not falling prey to
A lot of the same principals of tolerance applied in
raising children to be self reliant and responsible also apply to
society at large. If we take the same principal and apply it to our
elected officials, politicians, news media and so on it is a wonder we
still survive as a nation. People have accepted the lies of politicians
and special interest groups holding them to a lower standard then most
of us would tolerate from our own children.
People should have:
- The right to express their opinions.
- The right to walk on the street in safety.
- The right to feel secure with their property.
- The right to defend themselves.
Anything that encroaches on their personal freedom should not be tolerated.
"The promotion and preservation of freedom establish the boundaries and criteria for toleration."
freedom, the four establishment principles along with our Declaration
of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Common Laws permitted
under our Constitution create the framework for the criteria and
boundaries of tolerance in our nation.
I will briefly define the
major establishment principles designed for the preservation of nations
and individual freedom that our nation's founders understood and
observed. Each principle is built upon supporting and protecting the
first principle "volition" which is self - determination the freedom to
Unfortunately every form of government always contains the elements by
which it will eventually destroy itself. So a nation must be diligent to
teach each new generation growing up to be responsible. A nation is
always one generation away from failure. In the case of the United
States our existence as a free country depends on a good understanding
of our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence, The
Constitution and the Bill of Rights along with the establishment
principles and personal responsibility.
- self determination is our most important asset in life. The freedom
of choice gives the human race the right to life, liberty, the ownership
of property and the pursuit of happiness within the laws of
establishment our country. Although none of us are equal in ability in
freedom we are equal in personal choice.
- Marriage - serves as
the framework for the protection of the union between man and woman. In
marriage the man uses his authority to protect the freedom of his wife
which enables her to be free to love her husband. Love can only come
from freedom it cannot be coerced, forced or bought. Marriage forms the
basis for stability in society. Abnormal degenerate behaviors like same
sex marriages and communal living common in some religious cults
undermine the family and are destructive to our nation they should not
be tolerated in the eyes of the law and given special rights.
- marriage creates stability and the ideal environment for raising
children which is essential to the perpetuation of the human race and
our nation. Parents being a man and woman give balance and perspective
along with training to their children. Free will must be trained to make
proper decisions and parents are designed for that purpose. Parents
must instill proper norms and standards and teach their children to
correctly evaluate things and situations in life along with what I like
to call the big five all children should learn.
Parents Five Responsibilities to teach their Children:
- Respect for authority
- Respect for property
- Respect for privacy
- Respect for others
- the world is divided into small and large national entities with
different forms of government parliamentary, monarchy, republic, etc.
But whatever forms their legitimate function is to provide privacy,
freedom, and the right of the individual to pursue the course of life
based upon his own decisions and ability within the framework of that
particular type of government. Furthermore it must provide for freedom
of religion. Our politicians have long forgotten their job is to protect
our freedom and uphold the constitution. Instead they have elevated
themselves above the law and put forth their own agendas for their own
Observances of these are
not only essential to our survival but they also determine the need for
power and for tolerance. When these are ignored things are spun out of
control where the demand for power is determined by arrogance, lust and
illegitimate need. When arrogance exceeds the constraints of legitimate
authority there is no more respect for law. People and organizations
will eventually arm themselves and resort to violence in an attempt to
solve their problems. Society degenerates where government fails to
protect freedom, property, and life. People resort to taking authority
into their own hands to seek justice and security. We are not there yet,
but we are on that road and picking up speed as our politicians keep
passing legislation without the publics' knowledge of its true purpose.
Recently we have all seen legislation being passed that the politicians
themselves haven't read or do not even know what is in it. In the words
of the majority House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, "we have to pass it to see
what is in it. " Or in the words of president Obama, "we will find out
what is in it after it's passed."
"The need for power and the
boundaries for tolerance are determined by personal freedom, common
sense, establishment principles and the founding documents of our
Tolerance can mean different things to different people but
for the mature warrior it means a capacity to endure pain or hardship,
physical endurance or stamina, mental fortitude, the ability to adapt to
unfavorable environments and probably the most important of all is the
ability to maintain integrity, honor, bearing and professional high
standards in the face of bad influences.
We have heard people
preach tolerance all our lives but has anyone ever explained that when
tolerance is misapplied it becomes a self destructive weapon in the
hands of our enemies. The wise man and the mature warrior knows that to
compromise truth is the same as compromising his integrity which will
lead to his own downfall.
In these times we are asked to
compromise our integrity in the name of tolerance. We are badgered to
accept behavior destructive to our personal freedom and our nation. If
we are unable to discern what is to be tolerated and what is not we will
surely fall victim to our enemies. In the 60's we were asked to
tolerate many things that our country is now paying the price for,
quote; "Tolerance can open the way to bad influence."
In the military
the consequences of the misapplication of tolerance are severe. In
training there are certain things the Sergeant will tolerate and things
he will not. He must use good judgment to decide when to stop training
and correct and when to let it go on even if mistakes are being made. If
the soldiers are not concentrating on what they are doing he knows they
will not benefit so he must take measures to refocus his troops. If
there is a lack of discipline and control he knows they will not benefit
from training but only become sloppy. Sometimes he allows troops to
fail to learn and other times he stops training to prevent someone from
getting hurt or allowing bad habits to develop. These judgments on what
to tolerate and what not too come from criteria the Sergeant has learned
from past experience seeing what happens to soldiers who enter combat
that did not pay attention in training or soldiers that were not trained
properly or with low standards. He knows there are consequences to
tolerating the wrong things and there are consequences in not tolerating
certain things that will prevent them from learning from there
"To tolerant everything is too teach nothing"Troop
leaders in command of troops are responsible for there unit's
performance and what makes or breaks a unit is determined by discipline
and good training. If he does not understand the boundaries and
consequences of what to tolerate and what he cannot the unit will pay a
price when put to the test.
F. J. Kinsman
Just like the Sergeant we must develop
our own boundaries and criteria for the application of tolerance in our
lives. Although I wish I could give you a black and white formula I can
only give you the principle of tolerance which is; Tolerance was
designed to protect personal freedom and for criteria the fundamental
foundation is built on what violates that principle which is:
based on principal we have to tolerate things that are bad for example
under the principal of authority we cannot ignore our commander when he
is weak not based on his actions but based on his authority which as we
all have probably experienced can be a bitter pill to take but freedom
can only be preserved through respect for authority and when authority
is abused proper courses of action must be pursued within that frame
- Personal freedom.
- Common sense combined with experience.
- Our founding documents, establishment principles.
- A warrior's integrity, honor and values based on freedom.
- Truth, the mature warrior knows truth should be met with truth. Suspicion should be met with suspicion.
In conclusion I hope when someone says tolerance you will be
responsible and take into consideration the consequences of tolerance.
Is it promoting personal freedom or is it destructive to freedom and
there is where you draw the line.

|Word of Truth|
By Rev G.J. Rako
am growing increasingly intolerant of those that misrepresent the
definition of toleration. The far left, the media, and the ever
increasing PC types would have us believe that to be tolerant means to
condone, or approve of the destructive thoughts, motivations and actions
of others. They spuriously call Christians intolerant for
believing that "faith alone in Christ alone" is the only means of
reconciliation with the living God. Soon this lack of toleration
on our part will be identified as a hate crime. Persecution of
Christians is just around the corner. They do not tolerate
Christians or the absolute standards of the Bible.
defines the word tolerate: "Main Entry: tolerate Function: transitive
verb Inflected Form(s): tolerated; tolerating
toleratus, past participle of tolerare to endure, put up with; akin to
Old English tholian to bear, Latin tollere to lift up, latus carried
(suppletive past participle of ferre), Greek tlenai to bear
to endure or resist the action of (as a drug or food) without serious
side effects or discomfort: exhibit physiological tolerance for, 2 a: to
allow to be or to be done without prohibition, hindrance, or
contradiction. b:to put up with <learn to tolerate one
another>, the act of putting up with something or somebody irritating
or otherwise unpleasant."
Oxford dictionary: "tolerate verb 1
allow (something that one dislikes or disagrees with) to exist or occur
without interference. 2 patiently endure (something
unpleasant). 3 be capable of continued exposure to (a drug, toxin,
etc.) without adverse reaction. - DERIVATIVES toleration
noun. - ORIGIN Latin tolerare 'endure'."
The PC crowd
insists that we accept without question every degenerate, evil, vile
human practice. The true function of toleration is enduring their
degeneracy, socialism, activism, and false standards. Live and let
live is the principle of toleration. The Bible states that
homosexuality is a sin and an abomination to God. However, as a
Christian I tolerate their freewill choice to be homosexuals, until they
attempt to force their lifestyle on others or me. Homosexuality,
adultery, lying, cheating, stealing, and a host of other activities are
sin. Why do I not see adulterers, liars, or thieves having pride
parades to legitimize their evil lifestyles? They do not force
their sinful behaviors on others calling them alternative lifestyles
that we are suppose to accept. Our schools are not teaching that
murderers, liars, thieves and cheaters are born that way and that
students should experiment with these practices to find out who they
really are. If you take a stand against this bizarre behavior of
accepting the homosexual lifestyle you will be criticized, vilified, and
Socialism is constantly gaining ground in government
and with the people of the United States; it is one more example of evil
that Christians should barely tolerate. No child left behind is
an abysmal failure and waste of our tax dollars. Anything that big
government controls with an endless ever-growing bureaucracy ensures
mediocrity at best and a complete failure at worst. I would say
that graduating high school seniors who cannot read constitutes a
complete failure. This is supposed to be the "land of the free
home of the brave." With the intrusion of government, we are no
longer free and there are very few brave, because displaying the
characteristics of bravery or any kind of aggressiveness are no longer
What then is the Christian's responsibility
when interacting with people that possess these evil philosophies?
First, never compromise divine norms and standards that you have
learned from solid Bible teaching. You stand your ground and keep
your principles intact. Second, people have a right to think or
believe anything they wish without any interference from you or
me. The application of impersonal love to those you find
unattractive, obnoxious, or repulsive either physically (my, you are
shallow), or philosophically means you tolerate them. You always
treat people with dignity and respect, even if they are way out in left
Personal love is having an attraction
to someone or something, the object of personal love. I love
(personal) ice cream, because I am attracted to the flavor, consistency,
and sugar. Impersonal love, on the other hand is the expression
of your integrity toward someone who is unattractive, repulsive, or in
some way irritating to you. Impersonal love is another word for
tolerate. Someone is unattractive or completely antithetical to
what you believe, but the standards of integrity in your soul from Bible
doctrine allow you to tolerate them. As you tolerate them, you
from your own character treat them with respect and fairness, even if
they do not deserve it. John 3:16 For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten [uniquely born] Son, that whosoever
believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. God does
not love the world or the fallen, sinful creatures in it
personally. This verse is an expression of God's impersonal
love. God loves us personally only after we believe in the Lord
moment we believe in Christ, God bestows upon us forty things.
One of these forty things is the imputation of perfect righteousness."
personally loves His own righteousness; therefore, He now loves us
personally, because we now possess His perfect righteousness. This
divine righteousness given to us at the moment of salvation gives us
for the first time something attractive to God.
when we deal with people in our own periphery that are acting in an
irritating way or whose philosophies are directly opposed to our own, we
can apply impersonal love, or toleration. Toleration remember, is
not agreement with their false standards. We are called to love
our neighbor as our self and to love our enemies. We are not
called to be attracted too, compromise with, or to be sweet to evil
people. I do not like everyone in which I come into contact.
However, I can love them impersonally from my own
The humanity of Jesus Christ the perfect
God-Man voluntarily went to the cross and took our place. He
became our substitute. On the cross, He bore our sins and not just
ours but the sins of the whole world. God the father judged every
sin ever committed and the work of salvation was complete. This
great act of impersonal love secured our salvation and guaranteed
eternal life to any who would believe in Christ. (Acts 16:3)
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be
I tolerate a great many people
and policies. I do not have to like them. I have, over the
years had relatives, friends, or co-workers who were liberal or
recreational drug users, or simply had a different viewpoint than
mine. I tolerated (expressed impersonal love through my virtue)
those things I disagreed with or found repulsive in some way. I
did not bend to their evil thoughts or lifestyle. (1 Cor. 15:33)
Be not deceived, evil companions' corrupt good morals. (Prov.
13:20) He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion
of fools brings harm.
Toleration is impersonal love for all
mankind. Toleration is not bending your standards to those who do
not possess standards. Toleration is not approval of degeneracy
because the rest of the world seems to be going along with it.
Toleration is the application of your integrity to others as you display
respect and dignity toward them.

Hostage Rescue Operations
in a Mobile Environment
Swat teams are faced with many tactical challenges. The most frequent
is the barricaded gunman and the suicidal subject. Occasionally, we face
the hostage situation but seldom do we have to make a hostage crisis
intervention. For many teams the hostage crisis remains the focal point
of Swat training. The theory being that if you can master the hostage
crisis intervention than your response to a barricaded gunman and
suicidal subject will be just as good. We have also been lead to believe
that the hostage crisis is the biggest tactical challenge a Swat team
I agree that the hostage crisis is one of the toughest
tactical challenges for a Swat team to face however; hostages being
held captive on a bus may be the toughest challenge any tactical team
can encounter. We in law enforcement have come to know this tactical
option as the bus assault. In many ways it has to be treated like a
hostage rescue operation because you are dealing with a hostage crisis.
Unfortunately, your team will be facing many challenges that you
wouldn't normally train for when conducting typical hostage rescue
interventions in a conventional stronghold with rooms and
The biggest problem is your
adversary's stronghold can become mobile and unless you limit their
movement your options are very limited. There are several tactics that
can be used to keep a bus from moving. If feasible utilize two armored
tactical vehicles to block the front and back of the bus by parking them
against the bus to prevent any further movement. This is an aggressive
tactic but it gives you several advantages. The first is the bus can no
longer move forward or backwards. The second is you are now afforded a
close vantage point for observation and it provides a location for
staging and some cover on the approach.
If your limited to just
one tactical vehicle then create a ruse by having the tactical vehicle
drive in front of the bus and while doing so have a tactical team
approach the rear of the bus and disengage the on/off switch for the
engine. Most commercial busses have some type of switch in the rear off
the buss in the engine compartment and I encourage you to stop in your
local bus yard and ask the mechanics to show you the location of these
switches. School busses typically have front engine compartments and
your limited on ways to shut down their engines.
tactics include cutting the brake lines to exhaust the line pressure or
puncturing the gas lines or tank to drain the fuel. Keep in mind that
most busses are diesel fuel so the fire risk is minimal. These two
tactics are probably the most dangerous because the team tasked with the
operation most likely wont have any cover or concealment on the
approach and the floor of the bus offers very little in terms of cover.
Also, you are not guaranteed success by disrupting these lines so like I
mentioned earlier, consider the use of two armored cars to barricade
Once you have the bus stopped and movement
is no longer possible counter sniper teams must be deployed. Snipers
should be equipped with barrier or frangible rounds that they have
trained with and collected data on for their respective weapons. Don't
task a sniper to a bus assault that hasn't shot through glass barriers
or doesn't have the proper ammunition for the glass or headliner. I even
recommend that your snipers shoot through bus headliners in training
and record the data collected. Video tape the snipers shots from inside
as they pass through the headliner and glass windows. This is important
because if an intervention is to occur the sniper teams will take
repetitive shots into the headliner as the entry team makes their
approach to keep your adversary's head down or even on the
The counter snipers primary objective is to
gather intelligence. It's critical that he collects more information on
his hostage taker(s) as well as the hostage(s) themselves. This
intelligence will be crucial to the entry team if they make an
intervention. The second objective for the counter sniper is threat
recognition and elimination. The open-air option to neutralize the
hostage takers is the preferred method over making an entry onto the
bus. When possible assign two counter snipers to each hostage taker to
assure a quick instantaneous non-reflex kill shot.
that the bus is stationary and the snipers are deployed it's time to
establish negotiations. This can be achieved through the use of cell
phones, public address systems and throw phones. Just like any other
tactical operation keep the command post away from your target location
and with a little luck the negotiators can defuse the stand off.
assaults require a stealth approach to provide surprise, a decisive
entry with quick dominance of the bus, and dedicated tactics. The tactic
must deliver an overwhelming amount of dominating force. This may make
the difference between a successful or catastrophic operation.
the decision is made to perform a bus assault, preparation is key to
the success of the operation. Here are some tactical considerations
during the planning phase:
following is just a brief example of one a couple variations of a
commercial bus assault. I am sure your teams have many different styles
and opinions on various tactics but this is my preferred tactic.
- The use of distractions or a ruse
- Entry teams approach to the target
- Security or containment of the scene
- Breaching of the door and windows
- Entry onto the bus
- Custody of hostages and hostage takers
- Tinted windows
- Access to shut off the engine
- Number of doors and emergency exits
- The use of chemical agents
is a brief account of one tactic and if you inject variables than the
tactics change to meet your needs. Remember, that a bus assault is a
last resort effort and everything prior has failed, so to win you must
fight chaos with chaos, only controlled in a tactical manner.
bus must be immobilized, preferably with armored vehicles barricading
the bus but cutting off the power source, engine or brake lines may
- Counter snipers are deployed in a position to gather
intelligence. Snipers must have the ability to take an open air shot if
presented. Snipers must also have the ability to provide multiple shots
for cover fire into the headliner of the bus if called upon. Again,
these snipers must know their capabilities and limitations. If they
don't have the training or equipment then they must not be used to
provide cover fire.
- The sniper teams initiate the entry team
movement by shooting into the headliner of the bus, in succession during
the entire approach to the bus. They continue the shots keeping the
hostages and hostage takers ducking for cover or better yet they hit the
floor as the entry team approaches.
- The entry team (minimum of
10) makes the approach to the bus on the door side of the bus, in two
columns of operators shoulder to shoulder. They carry ballistic blankets
if available. As they approach the back two operators will toss
multiple flash bangs, in succession onto the drivers side of the bus to
draw attention to the opposite side of the approach if the sniper shots
fail to get their attention.
- Once along side the bus the cover
team (8 operators) break several windows and stacks along the side as
the entry team stacks at the door. On the team leaders order the snipers
will stop shooting into the bus and four cover operators will then take
immediate positions in the windows with their guns in the windows
providing cover. The operators will need step ladders or use the their
buddies to get the elevation needed to properly control the ported
- The team leader will give a second command for the
entry team to make entry once the cover operators have taken their
position. Although this is a separate command the time delay should only
take a second or two between the cover officers taking positions and
the entry team making entry.
- Entry team enters bus through the
door or the front window. The windows of commercial busses come out
relatively easy with the proper tool. One good swipe and pull and the
windshield is out of it's frame.
- First man in goes to the driver and takes a position of on top of him covering "long" on that side of the bus.
- Second man takes cover on the steps or the first seat covering "long" on the opposite side of the driver.
next four to eight operators then clear the bus by moving down the isle
clearing each seat as they go. Avoid scanning when clearing the seats.
It's faster to have the first guy look one direction and the second guy
look the opposite, never scanning back across the bus but scanning
forward as they clear.
- Once domination of the bus is achieved
the targets must be taken control of quickly. If you fail to recognize
them on the clearing operation loud communication between the team
leader and the occupants of the bus will be necessary. First yell loudly
to the occupants to raise their hands towards the ceiling and keep them
their. Secondly, ask the occupants where the bad guy is or is anybody
- After taking the targets into custody and evacuation of
the occupants is complete do a second sweep of the vehicle for

Clichés of Socialism
Clichés of Socialism
"Man is Born for Cooperation not for Competition"
"The idols of the Market place must yield
to those of humanity"
THE FLAW in this cliché is the implication of incompatibility
between competition and cooperation, between the procedures of voluntary
exchange and the objectives of human beings.
call "the idols of the market place" include competitive bargaining and
free trade as well as the private ownership and control of property.
These are the means by which each individual may pursue his own
ability-within the limits of due respect for the lives the property, and
the related unalienable right of his fellow men.
Though the free
market affords the maximum opportunity for each and every unit of
humanity to approach the fulfillment of his potentialities, this is not
what the socialists have in mind. The socialistic concept of ideal
humanity involves giving to each person according to his needs,
regardless of his efforts to earn what he wants. According to this view,
the whole of man consists of his capacity to consume, which sheds light
on the contention that "man is born for cooperation, not for
competition." In other words, man is born for comfort and ease, not work
The "cooperation" of socialism refers to the
sharing of whatever is available to consume, regardless of how it came
to be produced or saved, or who might claim ownership. Man as consumer,
is to help himself to anything he needs-but at the other fellow's
expense. The double trouble with this concept of "cooperation" is
its inherent immorality and the fact that it doesn't work. The theory
doesn't work out in practice because most human beings won't work-or
save-if they're systematically robbed by loafers, or taught to be
loafers themselves. And, whereas voluntary charity may be considered one
of the highest forms of moral human action, it seem clear that
reversing the process to let the receiver of alms grasp what he wants
from whom he pleases if quite as immoral as any other form of theft.
consuming may follow but cannot precede production, it is important
that economic policy give consideration to producers and encourage them.
Private property-the right to the fruits of one's own skill and labor,
earned by serving rather than exploiting others-affords such
encouragement. The owner of property is free to trade with others, if
they are willing. He may not force anyone to buy his goods or services,
but must vie for the buyer's favor-cater to the consumer-in open
competition with all other producers within his market area.
competition? Yes, indeed. But also cooperation of the highest order,
for it involves absolute respect for the lives, property, the
freedom-the gamut of human rights-of every peaceful person in the world.
No one is empowered by the free market procedures to enslave any other
person, or to compel him to buy or sell anything.
effectively, individuals must be free to choose with whom to cooperate
and for what purposes. And competition provides the opportunity for such
choice. If there is but one maker of bread, there can be no choice. So,
competition is the necessary prelude to cooperation.
arrangement could possibly be more humanitarian than to let each
individual rise to the full limit of his creative potentialities? The
competitive free market does this and thus maximizes the opportunities
for the more capable among men to behave charitably toward their less
fortunate brethren. It is not a question of cooperation or competition.
Cooperation and competition in the market place afford the best hope for
each individual and for humanity in general.

About laying an egg . . .
ONCE UPON A TIME were two farmers. Each had a hen that laid about 20 eggs a month.
farmers liked eggs, so one ate his. But the other did without, and put
his eggs in an incubator which he bought by borrowing money. In no time
he had 200 chickens from his one. A shocking profit! (Before taxes.)
sold some to pay interest on the loan on his incubator; he ate some as a
reward for all his labor in raising the brood. And he sold a good many
to pay his income tax.
He still had some left. Profit.
the farmer who had eaten all his eggs got a law passed. The neighbors
divided up the chicken-raising-farmers "profits" and ate them. After
all, they said, he had more than he needed and they were hungry.
So, of course, the farmer wasn't going to raise any more chickens just to have them taken away from him; he ate his eggs too.
In due time both the farmers' original hens died of old age, and then there weren't any eggs for anybody. No chickens either.
The neighbors were quite sure it was somehow the chicken raiser's fault.
the farmer, who used to eat all his eggs, enjoy his now-eggless meals
any more for realizing that the farmer next door wasn't enjoying any
