It takes a nation to protect the nation
"Two thousand years ago, a Roman Senator suggested that all slaves wear white armbands to better identify them. 'No', said a wiser Senator. 'If they see how many of them there are, they may revolt'". - Unknown
A common theme in the posts of 1683 AD is the presentation of tactics which individuals can implement on their own to help bring an awareness of the threats of Islamification and the overall Islamic Supremacist agenda to the forefront of the public's consciousness. As things currently stand (early 2010), Leftists control most of the traditional mass communication forums within society, such as the media and government. Since the Left is entirely complicit in the advancement of these threats to Civilization, we need to be creative in seeking out other ways to ensure that our message will be heard by those in the general public, with a focus on reaching people who do not follow current events unless there is some sort of major emergency. We need to make them acutely aware that an emergency which will affect them significantly is in fact already here. An ideal way to attain this goal would be to ensure that people encounter various cues and messages from novel sources concerning these threats in the course of their daily lives. This would naturally entail the bypassing of the Leftist mouthpieces of television, radio (excluding U.S. radio) and newspapers. Through a repeated and consistent exposure of the public to alerts regarding a growing threat, we can eventually remove the blindfold which the media has placed over their eyes.
The act of informing a population of any news or ideas involves an "exchange" or transfer of some sort. When we consider the types of exchanges in which the average person engages in the course of their daily lives, we have aural, visual and tactile/physical. Aspects of some of the preceding exchanges are addressed in other posts. This post will examine a specific "physical exchange", one which is common to almost everyone: the exchange of money (particularly in the form of paper bills or notes). Unlike the handing out of brochures on a street corner to people passing by, which most people will avoid accepting, the exchange of money almost always performed rapidly, with mutual consent, with the only concern in mind at the moment of transfer being a proper counting. It is through the common act of currency exchange which we can assert ourselves into the public's awareness with written information that will rarely be avoided or refused by the intended recipient.
In this regard, we propose that those who are concerned with the threats of Islamification and the Islamic Supremacist agenda mark all of their currency, on a regular and consistent basis, with appropriate text, symbols or images which alert the bearer to the dangers at hand. Please note that legal concerns regarding this activity are addressed further down, so do not assume at this early point of our presentation that the act of currency marking would necessarily be in compliance with the laws where you live. Any discussion in this text regarding the actual, physical application of any text, symbols or images to currency should be understood as applying to situations where such an act is not specifically prohibited by law.
Since space on currency is quite limited for "proper markings" (details later), any messages or statements should be very, very brief. In addition, it is imperative that a suitable website address be included so that people may learn more. The effect of this action is that people who would otherwise not be aware of the threats at hand will have something in their possession which alerts them and gives them guidance on where further information can be obtained. Thus, the same basic goal of a traditional pamphlet, which most people refuse to accept on the street, will be attained with minimal chances of recipient refusal.
The best way for most people to enter a message in support of our efforts is with a rubber stamp. Handwriting would be far too much time consuming for most people and it would be too difficult for many people to provide legible text of a very small size. Furthermore, it would reflect a shoddy operation. It is interesting to note that groups currently exist in which members stamp contact information on currency. The stamped information guides the eventual bearers of such currency to a website which will help them trace the movement throughout the world of the bill or note in hand. The activity is called "currency bill tracking" and it is performed with many currencies worldwide. See the following for details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Currency_bill_tracking. However, it should be noted that not all bill trackers actually stamp currency; it depends on the nation involved.
Should stamping be performed (if not banned by law), we could follow the established custom in currency bill tracking in which the stamped information is only placed in an open area of a bill or note (including margins). This gives a neat, ordered appearance and would fulfill any possibly existing requirements of the law in a nation which might prohibit the blocking of currency images and text. However, depending on the nation involved, different denominations have varying areas of available free space. This space variability would tend to suggest that in such a situation, a universal stamp should be designed to accommodate the smallest area of available space which is common to all denominations in a nation. All of this discussion does not necessarily mean that a stamp must be designed to only fill free space on currency. Depending on the law, standard stamps could still be designed which violate the "free space" ideal. No matter what option is chosen, the stamped presentation to eventual currency recipients should not be too overwhelming. A stamp imprint which is too large may make the intended recipient unnecessarily worry that the bill in question might not be "legal" or still have full face value, thus giving them the idea that they could halt a transaction. We want something which can be noticed, while, simultaneously, not be completely overwhelming.
The stamping of currency is generally viewed either as a legal activity (meaning it is not clearly and specifically prohibited) or an illegal activity (though often "tolerated" or unenforced), depending on the nation. It would appear, at a minimum, that any activity which makes currency incapable of use is prohibited in most nations. The magnitude and scope of our proposed stamping text and design would not appear to be "destructive" by any means, and thus it would not be making bills incapable of use. However, regarding legal issues, it is beyond the scope of 1683 AD to research the laws concerning the treatment of every single currency in the world. Still, the above-mentioned conditions would seem to be a reasonable understanding of things. The reader should research the links mentioned in this post and conduct further research to see what is specifically applicable in their own country. It should be kept in mind that there does not seem to be any evidence, anywhere, that a stamped bill or note no longer retains its face value. That is likely the case because a law to that effect would unduly penalize unknowing recipients of such bills or notes in transactions.
Here are two potential problems regarding the stamping of currency which have been gleaned from a brief internet search. In this link, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where%27s_George%3F, under the "controversy" section, it is stated that the United States Secret Service told the internet group that the selling of rubber stamps with that "intended purpose" (our words and emphasis) of "advertising" on currency was illegal. The group therefore stopped selling rubber stamps. But they still discuss bill tracking as a concept, as speech cannot be limited. The law does not seem to specifically prohibit stamping in the U.S., it just prohibits rendering currency unusable. The group FindLizzy quotes law in the United Kingdom which actually prohibits the act of stamping currency: http://www.findlizzy.co.uk/help . The group does not endorse stamping.
In light of the preceding, 1683 AD cannot uniformly recommend the stamping of currency in every single nation. Therefore, we will put forth ideas for consideration which focus primarily upon the actual promotion of currency stamping and the selling of rubber stamps. If implemented, these suggestions would tend to be legal in most nations, even where actual currency stamping is prohibited, as they apply solely to matters which would take place just before a stamp is actually applied in the privacy of one's home to a bill or note. The final act of stamping would be a decision best left to the individual in consultation with legal resources. As an aside, individuals who decide to stamp currency and are in nations where currency stamping is illegal might want to take into account the exceedingly low likelihood of ever being traced or caught, particularly if they do not carry a rubber stamp on their person during shopping or banking forays. With all of this in mind, any mentions in this text of the actual act of stamping should be viewed with the understanding that, unless otherwise stated, it involves nations were the specific act is not prohibited. Again, the ideas to be presented are essentially possible ways to legally circumvent certain aspects of any laws which touch upon promotion or selling. Still, we urge that you consult with an attorney and applicable laws before following what this post sets forth.
When considering our "Secret Service" incident (prior text), it would not appear to be illegal for any prominent anti-Islamification groups to follow the precedent of bill tracking groups and discuss or promote on the internet the stamping of currency as a general concept or tactic, as long as they do not also sell actual stamps. Nor would it appear to be illegal to provide details on the specific text, text size and text arrangement which should be in an effective stamp, should "someone else" actually sell them. If our hypothetical anti-Islamification organization's website operator wishes to be careful, particularly in a nation where stamping is prohibited outright, they could assert that they are not referring to the stamping of their own particular nation's currency in their writings (unless perhaps they are based in another nation). In such situations, people would just have to "read between the lines" as to their intent. It would just be "coincidental" that any stamp designs or actual stamps (sold by others) they are promoting have size parameters which correspond to their own nation's currency. As long as there is no legal connection between themselves and a stamp seller, they might be able to put a direct link to them on their website. Or, they could urge people to look for a stamp on eBay and provide readers with suitable search terms. Of course, there would be nothing to prohibit individual blogs from doing the above-mentioned "reading between the lines" and spelling things out to the public in clear, direct language. Such conversations should not be discouraged.
Of great interest is the fact that rubber stamping is a recognized hobby (not involving currency) and is performed by many people ( http://rubberstamping.about.com/od/gettingstarted/a/rubberstamping.htm ). With this in mind, another approach might be for an anti-Islamification organization, even in a nation where the marking on currency is banned, to promote design parameters and/or actually sell rubber stamps as a component of a rubber stamping "hobby", as just mentioned. They would not make any mention whatsoever of using it on currency. Of course, there would be nothing to keep independent blogs and other websites to "coincidentally" come out in the open and urge bill stamping and refer possible participants to the anti-Islamification website (or other retailer) to purchase them. Of course, the selling website in this arrangement would be shocked (!), shocked (!) if they were to find out that others were using their "hobby stamps" for stamping on currency. But it does not appear that there would be any legal foundation for a government to compel them to stop selling the stamps.
As alluded to above, there would seem to be no prohibitions against separate, "legally independent" websites from springing up and selling rubber stamps which, quite coincidentally, match the description of the rubber stamps as discussed in our main anti-Islamification websites as discussed above. Such independent websites which sell the stamps should have no mention of the stamping of currency. Under such an arrangement, the independent website actually selling the rubber stamps could not be accused of "advertising on currency" or promoting anything illegal (if legality is an issue). Blogs would just make referrals to them. Awareness could also spread via word of mouth. If a retailer wishes, they could squeeze in their own internet address name on the stamp so that people who see the imprint on currency can order one for their own use. In fact, this should be strongly encouraged.
Another option would be for the anti-Islamification group website and independent blogs to simply urge people to take the recommended stamp specifications and dimensions as they have posted to a company which makes rubber stamps, either on the internet or at a local stationary store. It would be up to these websites and blogs as to whether they want to make a reference to currency stamping.
And of course, if a group has meetings or protests, it could sell the stamps there and tell the buyers in private conversations how to most appropriately use them.
Whenever a design is selected, buyers should be offered the opportunity to purchase basic stamps, in which the user goes back and forth between a bill and an ink pad, and also self-inking stamps which are much quicker to use. Consideration should be given to ink color; red would likely be the best choice.
In view of the various threats which can be anticipated against any internet retailers who advertise and sell rubber stamps of this nature, they should make an effort to conceal their physical location. The actual manufacturer (if different from the retailer) should be requested (for their own benefit) to not include their name and address on the stamps. Also, it would not be advisable to pinpoint any rubber stamp manufacturer on the internet which will make such stamps upon request with a presentation of the desired design. To do so might cause them grief. It would be best if such manufacturers were to treat inquiries for making the desired stamps on a case by case basis.
In addition to placing a message on currency, a similar tactic can be taken with coins. In this case, people would colorize their coins with an enamel paint. A specific color which represents the movement would be utilized. The drawback with this approach is that unless one had the resources of a private mint to apply the coating, the end result could get a bit messy. And of course, the imprint of a message would not be possible without suitable equipment. It is understood that stickers were once placed on pound coins in the UK, as a protest against Euro coinage. Perhaps that could be explored.
Impact and reaction
Assuming someone has such currency in hand, perhaps received unknowingly in a prior transaction, let's envision a trip to the local merchant. If the merchant accepts the currency without question, then there is no problem. If the stamp is not "overpowering" the likely scenario would be acceptance. In such situations, our bill or note would then go into general circulation and the merchant will likely give it to someone else when making change.
Now, consider a situation where a bearer encounters someone who refuses to accept it. Let's keep in mind that there is no evidence that such a bill or note would have lost its face value. An innocent bearer could conceivably claim ignorance about the origin of the bill to the merchant. This will generate a situation where the merchant (likely an Islamic Supremacist) is angry at a person who might have unknowingly received the bill from someone else. The bearer will know that the bill is not void of its full face value. And even if he doubts this, he will not likely admit it. The bearer can insist that the bill is still full legal tender and that the merchant must accept it in a sale. If the merchant refuses, there might be legal grounds for charges of discrimination against him. And if he persists in his anger against a truly innocent customer, he runs the risk of losing that customer for future sales and that customer telling others of his experience. In essence, all of this appears to place the merchant in an unusual situation. Irrespective of his being uncomfortable with the bill or note, it would still have its full value, apparently leaving him no legal recourse but to accept it. Likewise, if he unknowingly gets left with such a bill and gives it as a part of change to a customer who himself may object to it, it is unlikely that the merchant in such a situation would claim that the stamped bill has no value. The end result of all this is that there would be little to forestall the spread of stamped currency throughout society
If a situation were to ever arise where the police are called in during an attempted transaction, in a country where currency stamping is banned, some bearers could honestly claim that they must have received stamped bills in a prior transaction. That would be quite difficult to disprove, particularly if the bearer does not have a stamp on his person. Even if the police launched an all out investigation and, quite coincidentally, found a stamp in a bearer's home (despite being carefully hidden), there is no way they could completely discount the possibility of some unknown friend or family member taking liberties with the stamp and the bearer's money without the awareness of the bearer. Nor could they dismiss a situation where other people could have possibly borrowed the stamp and stamped currency which the bearer, in turn, received in some subsequent, unknown shopping venture. A number of possibilities could be considered. Perhaps the promulgation of such possibilities in blogs would serve to discourage any disruptions in the life of any bearer by the authorities.
In prior text, we promoted the placement of text, symbols or images, as well as website information, which focuses on alerting people to the threat of Islamification and the Islamic Supremacist threat. There is one other angle on stamping which might bear consideration. It is a bit unusual and I anticipate considerable discussion regarding it. The same suggestions as to who might promote the concept and who might provide the stamps would apply with this new approach.
The approach in question is rather unique in all of 1683 AD's concepts in that it is intended solely as a public service for our dear Islamic Supremacist friends. It takes into account the common Islamic Supremacist perception that all Westerners go about life falling down drunk. In this approach, the stamps would simply say something to the effect that a corresponding bill or note had accidentally been soaked in an alcoholic beverage (not rubbing alcohol). The statement would be applied whenever such incidents occur. Knowing us Westerners, this can be quite often. We could have whole wallets filled with such stamped currency. Thus, our Islamic Supremacist friends would, when examining a payment they just received for some product or service, likely be quite happy to learn that they had at least been warned of their potentially committing a great affront to Islam if they were to "transport" the alcohol laden currency to a Sharia bank, give it to another customer in the course of business, or otherwise benefit from the "transport" or use of such money. Naturally, we all know that such currency would only be offered in payment as a last resort, as when the bearer had no other "unsoiled" currency available. By no means would we want to intentionally seek out confirmed Islamic Supremacist friends to make such payments.
Anyway, in such situations where payment has been made with such currency, the Islamic Supremacists, if they were true to their beliefs, would have to simply destroy their payment on the spot or hand it back to the purchaser who would not be required by law to offer an unstamped replacement (should one be available), as the stamped bill would still be valid legal tender. Such a shame! But at least they would have been spared the unthinkable prospect of insulting Islam. They should be grateful and most appreciative for our warnings which benefit them. In fact, in case they missed the notation on the currency, it could be pointed out to them once the transaction has been concluded. Since the currency would (unless we find some legal issue) still be legal tender and deemed appropriate for the payment of any debt, they would not be in a position to demand an unstamped replacement bill which, quite possibly, would not be in the bearer's wallet. If they refused to sell a product to a person with such currency, who was only trying to help, charges of discrimination might be levied against them. If they refused to accept payment for a service already provided (i.e. taxi drivers at the Minneapolis airport), well, the customer might, quite regrettably, have to leave with the full owed payment in his pocket. In fact, if this service to the Islamic Supremacist community is received in the manner as anticipated above, we could help them out further regarding stamped notices on any currency which had been won through gambling. 1683 AD had considered warnings of accidental currency exposure to a few other things (use your imagination), but they would be of a concern not only to Islamic Supremacists but also the followers of various religions, ones which we esteem quite highly. Since 1683 AD and its allies have periodically expressed some differences of opinion exclusively with Islamic Supremacists, we decided it would be best to just extend gestures of peace in which Islamic Supremacists would be the sole beneficiaries. We therefore implore readers to not consider any alternatives to those involving alcohol or gambling.
By the way, the Sharia banking systems being established in the UK and elsewhere should also derive great benefit from this concept.
One more point
As with other concepts posted by 1683 AD, one may voice concern that our opposition will read this entire narrative and begin stamping currency with messages against us. We could only hope so, as it would serve our purpose of getting the overall issue of Islamification and the Islamic Supremacist agenda before te public. There is no such thing as "bad" publicity.
How to get this implemented
We will now explain how you, the reader, can help get this concept off the ground and eventually secure your own rubber stamp. If you find favor with this idea, we would urge that before you get up from your computer, just send an e-mail to leading anti-Islamification organizations and urge them to move forward with whatever steps are necessary to make rubber stamps of this nature available to the anti-Islamification community. We need a large number of people to do this. Only an established organization would have the resources and "presence" to get things going. If you are in an organization which has meetings and protests, bring the concept up directly with key personnel. Press them on it! Should your attempts be successful, please report back to 1683 AD so that information on availability can be posted. That's it! With just those few, modest actions, you can be instrumental in bringing this fight to a new level.
