Cody Wilson: I'm Looking Forward to Jail. It'll Give Me Time to Catch Up On My Reading



Writes Nick of his recent interview with Cody Wilson at TheTruthAboutGuns.com:

'The first thing we wanted to know is if he’s worried about a possible stretch as a guest of the the federal government in one of their high security greybar hotels. Cody’s response: “I’m looking forward to it. It’ll give me time to catch up on my reading.”

As far as he’s concerned, the government might get him on any number of technicalities. Cody started listing the ways that Uncle Sam could justify putting him away, almost as if they were badges of honor — thumbing his nose at their attempts to control the proliferation of firearms. It fits well with the “crypto-anarchist” persona that he’s developed as his efforts with 3D printing have progressed.

Robert was concerned that Cody didn’t have a lawyer already on speed dial in the event of his arrest. We started spit-balling lawyers that might be interested in taking his case, and Cody wasn’t too impressed with any of them. Alan Gottleib was definitely a no-go. “Didn’t he support that Toomey-Manchin background check bill? No, f*** him.”'

You get the feeling that Cody is so real, the state's walls and guns and threats, all based on lies and fictions in the end, have no power to intimidate or concern Cody. Observing him in so many videos, and the way people react to him, it seems Cody is just more real than most of the people around him, so truly alive and healthy, like Ayn Rand's character, Howard Roark.

Here's another gem from that interview write-up:

'“I’ve talked to people who have walked into hacker spaces and seen a row of printers all printing Liberator parts,” Cody said as his roasted chicken dish was being placed in front of him. Hacker spaces are collaborative locations where exceedingly nerdy people get together, pool their money to buy equipment and space and experiment with technology, usually including 3D printers. Hacker spaces have popped up in cities across the world, including New York, Washington, D.C., London, Helsinki and Lisbon.'

Talk about something that seems like it came straight out of a book! We are living in sci-fi times, I am telling you.

Anyway, for those of little faith like me, the idea of Cody Wilson in jail isn't a welcome one. I know their aim is to discipline and punish the soul, and that most of us (including myself, I continue to discover to my horror, the deeper I dig into the nature of power and control) are in jail already, and that it is impossible for the state to truly jail a Cody Wilson. But still, the idea of his body in a cage, at the physical mercy of his spiritual and mental inferiors, men with guns and nightsticks telling Cody when to stand up, when to sit down, when to eat, what to wear, how to stand in line next to someone that beat up their wife. It's infuriating in a way that fills me with desperate hate.
