Forced Compliance starts out very subtle. It usually plays on the safety factor and is a simple enough of a request no one questions it.
Hello, my name is Arthur and I teach wartime tactics. I provide a lot of free information online, sell wartime manuals and do in-person training. Today I'm going to focus on a subtle (and very dangerous) bondage trick that millions have fallen for and become sucked into.

Forced Compliance & Personal Experience
I have some personal experiences with Forced Compliance that I would like to share with you. You should already have a good idea of where I'm going with this. However, if you stick with me, you'll be shocked to see where it has led in my own life. Additionally, you will see how dangerous it can be in your own.
Battle Buddy Safety
The first example of Forced Compliance that I have for you starts with basic training. Out the gate, you are required to have a "battle buddy" with you at ALL times. Likewise, you were never allowed to go anywhere by yourself.
Duh!: Yes I know the importance behind the battle buddy concept. I do not deny its importance. That is the trick. Forced Compliance ALWAYS starts out making sense. Stick with me, there is a point I'm leading up to here.
The second example of Forced Compliance that I ran into was barracks inspections. Also known as the "health and welfare" inspection. They would come at any time of the day or night to search your room. God forbid they ever find any weapons.
Total Rant: Soo... I'm expected to have a weapon on me at all times when I am out of the country but not allowed to have any on me within the country?? I'm a soldier! We can't defend America with rubber duckies!
I didn't like it, but I didn't question it because it sorta made sense. I didn't own the place.
Forced Compliance Behind Closed Doors
My eyes were opened a little more when I became an NCO. This was because I was now part of their leadership meetings. And Oh the double standard! As you can expect, I saw more examples of Forced Compliance.
House Inspections On Post
Before I knew it, one of the men I was in charge of comes to me with a complaint. They wanted to know why their house was searched early that morning for a "health and welfare" check.
Naturally I wanted to know what excuse they had for that. When I asked about it, I was told that because their house was on post, it was subject to search at ANY time.
I had to clarify that one so I asked the staff sergeant if he'd inspect the bathroom anyways if my wife was in the shower. I was told he might let her get out first.
Since I didn't have the rank to put a stop to it, the only advice I could give private Snuffy at that time was to move off post. Well, as you'll see, that didn't work either.
Privately Owned House Inspections Off Post
It wasn't long before I was told about a guy from my sister platoon and how they got their home searched off post. You heard that right. It didn't matter if you owned the building, they still searched it. Their excuse this time? They paid you BAH (base housing allowance - payment for living conditions.)
And yes, they really do this!
For you to realize how stupid this is, it would be like your employer demanding to search your home because they give you the money to pay your mortgage.
Vehicle "Safety" Inspections
The next issue I had with Forced Compliance came about with vehicle "safety" inspections. Their excuse now? To keep their men out of trouble. They had to make sure that the vehicles were safe to drive. (Um... didn't I already go through this when I had my vehicle registered?) Apparently not good enough because this now had to happen every Friday.
Not About Safety: So they wanted to make sure my vehicle was safe to drive? What does searching my bag inside my car have to do with that and the price of eggs in China?
Property Seizure As Punishment
Forced Compliance and PT Tests
One of my buddy's guys had a drinking problem. As a result, he had trouble passing the PT test. As a result, they tried to seize his vehicle.
The Double Standard: I have to add this little tidbit - the same PT test that Private Snuffy failed was the same PT test that the platoon Sgt failed (Yes, the same man that was now trying to take PVT Snuffy's car) but on paper the Platoons Sgt "passed." It's known as pencil whipping.
I was standing there when they suggested it, I explained it to them why they couldn't . When they tried to argue with me about it, I had to explain to them that it was larceny to take someone's vehicle like that, and a felony.
But I'm going to tell you right now, that it wasn't the first time that has happened. Furthermore, I'm certain that it has happened multiple times since then.
Forced Compliance "For Your Safety"
I tell you all this to help you understand where I'm coming from when someone in authority tries to use the "for your safety" line and Forced Compliance. Once you allow them to do it once, it NEVER ends.
"Give an inch, take a mile."
Food For Thought
Whether you wear a face mask is up to you. Not your governor, not your sheriff, and not the lady at the store. It is your business and it is your decision to make. Don't let Forced Compliance bully you into doing something that you don't want to.
I will tell you this. First you see the face masks. Then comes the vaccine. I guarantee something worse comes next.
