Alt.Market founder's security pledge
« on: January 20, 2015, 09:52:56 pm »

In the wake of David Crowley's death, Brandon Smith, the founder of, has written his own security pledge. Obviously, he is worried that he will get "suicided" by TPTB.

David Crowley, a fighter on our side of Mindwar, was in the middle of producing a new movie, "Gray State", which depicts the rise of a totalitarian State which very closely resembles what we are facing today. The MSM has been reporting it as a murder-suicide, but the police have labeled it "suspicious" and are still investigating.

Brandon Smith's pledge-

My Pledge, if it turns out I happen to be important enough to kill…

I, Brandon Smith, founder of, will NEVER bring deliberate harm to myself or other innocent people. I will NEVER commit suicide, nor will I ever hurt other people, including family, friends, or colleagues. I will NEVER use a weapon against another human being unless in self defense. I also will NEVER disappear from public view of my own volition, nor will I ever abruptly quit my work within the liberty movement. I am dedicated to the cause of freedom, I am proud of the path my life has taken, I am of excellent health, and am sound of mind (though such a thing may be treated as “subjective” by many).

I will NEVER jump from a bridge, jump from a tall building, hang myself with my underwear in a case of auto-erotic asphyxiation (I’m not into that), drown myself in a lake, or drive my car into a tree after packing it with explosives. I have no drug addictions and NEVER take psychotropic medications.  And to be clear, I will NEVER fly in a prop airplane, so it is impossible for me to die in a prop-plane crash. I also will NEVER pull a firearm on a police officer or federal agent unless they arrive without a warrant and exhibit clear intent to harm me or those I care about.

If I am found dead, regardless of the supposed circumstances or motives given by the mainstream press or state officials, IT WAS MURDER, not suicide. If I go missing, it is because of foul play, not because I have quit the movement, or gone off to Alaska to commune with the damn trees. Character attacks will not deter me from my work, nor cause me to walk away from my activism.

If I or any other liberty movement activist end up dead or missing under strange circumstances in the near future, I highly recommend that others in the movement consider this a serious threat and go “operational” to secure themselves and their loved ones.

I have no fear of covert programs against the movement or myself. I will continue to pursue my work, and all possible dangers are ultimately irrelevant. It is my hope that other activists will adopt the same attitude and not be dismayed, no matter what we witness in the days to come.

All of this might sound a bit “over the edge” to some people. Frankly, I couldn’t care less. These are the times we live in, whether one accepts it or not.

One lesson from the Crowley tragedy is the lesson of community. Crowley and his family had apparently been dead for around a month before anyone decided to check on them. Their neighbors barely knew them.

Where were their friends? Where were their relatives? Neighbors heard no gunshots? Why was there no community of people around them to question their disappearance? ALL liberty movement activists should be building community and organizing in groups which meet regularly, and they should be doing this NOW. This organization might be in the form of a neighborhood watch, a weekly prepper group, an Oath Keeper CPT group, etc. We cannot be isolated from each other any longer.

This pledge is a precaution, not a shield against violence aimed at us. Preparation must continue, for only when organized and prepared will we find any kind of legitimate security

Interesting approach... I don't wonder if it would have been better to not write exceptions though...
I'm not where I want to be, but I'm better than where I was!

Freedom is not being able to do what you want to do; freedom is being able to NOT do what you don't want to do.
