Line in the Sand (Behind Enemy Lines)

Here is an informal discussion I had with Gary Hunt regarding the metaphor of the line in the sand. It is now available as a free downloadable podcast (Backup copy).

 


 

Episode Description

What was the significance of Colonel Travis drawing a line in the sand at the Alamo with his saber? Is it possible to know ahead of time what abuses of government you will and will not tolerate? Are public pronouncements only an expression of bravado and is it quite possible that the line in the sand concept is just a fabrication?

Some topics that were broached, during this very diverse conversation, were the viability of street protests, sensationalistic civil disobedience, people who have taken an oath and claim they will keep it, militia mutual defense pacts, the 2012 presidential campaign, Sandy Hook, and the Free State Project.
