The Swiss resistance convinced Hitler to keep his bloody hands off Switzerland in WWII. Now the Swiss are once again standing up against outside invasion. This time, the Swiss resistance is serving to bolster a Europe-wide resistance against a veritable invasion of violent, low-IQ third world immigrants who are beginning to fill the prisons, birthing wards, and welfare roles across Europe.
Swistzerland has a famous history of resistance against outside aggression:
“The Swiss do not have an army, they are the army, says one government publication. Fully deployed, the Swiss army has 15.2 men per square kilometre; in contrast, the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. have only .2 soldiers per square kilometre. Switzerland is 76 times denser with soldiers than either superpower. Indeed, only Israel has more army per square kilometre.
Switzerland is also the only Western nation to provide shelters fully stocked with food and enough supplies to last a year for all its citizens in case of war. The banks and supermarkets subsidise much of the stockpiling. The banks also have plans to move their gold into the mountainous center of Switzerland in case of invasion.
The nation is ready to mobilise on a moment’s notice. Said one Swiss citizen-soldier, “If we start in the morning, we would be mobilised by late afternoon. That is why the gun is at home, the ammunition is at home. The younger people all have automatic rifles. They are ready to fight.” Citizen-soldiers on their way to mobilisation points may flag down and commandeer passing automobiles.
Since 1291, when the landsgemeinden (people’s assemblies) formed circles in the village squares, and only men carrying swords could vote, weapons have been the mark of citizenship. As a Military Department spokesman said, “It is an old Swiss tradition that only an armed man can have political rights.” This policy is based on the understanding that only those who bear the burden of keeping Switzerland free are entitled to fully enjoy the benefits of freedom. __What the rest of the civilised world can learn from Switzerland
Swiss army officer Hans von Dach wrote the manual for Swiss resistance against invaders, in 1957. Since then it has been a classic work for proto-resistance movements across the western world, in case of foreign invasion or totalitarian takeover.
The book is a manual for irregular warfare against an occupying force, intended to be used by civilians rather than by soldiers. It presumes a form of irregular resistance involving no arms heavier than light infantry arms: rifles, hand grenades and mines.
The topics covered in the first volume include:
- the operative, tactical, technical and psychological basics of guerrilla warfare, such as sabotage, assassination and conduct under torture,
- the establishment, organization and command of guerrilla warfare units and civilian resistance movements,
- enemy methods of suppressing and combating guerrilla warfare.

The study of resistance against invasion or tyranny is an integral part of The Dangerous Child Method of Education and Child-Raising. It is no good raising a Dangerous Child if most of his productivity and energy is suppressed by a totalitarian government. That is why wise societies will act like the Swiss, and make it clear that any attempt at invasion or oppression will be too expensive, too dangerous for the oppressor.
It is clear that the EU has already stepped over the line — as far as the Swiss are concerned — and it is a matter of self-preservation as a nation for the Swiss to push back against the un-elected corrupt bureaucrats of Brussels.
Another aspect of Switzerland from which the rest of the civilised world could learn, is its federal system of government:
The Federal Council was instituted by the 1848 Federal Constitution as the “supreme executive and directorial authority of the Confederation”.
When the Constitution was written, constitutional democracy was still in its infancy, and the founding fathers of Switzerland had little in the way of examples. While they drew heavily on the U.S. Constitution for the organisation of the federal state as a whole, they opted for the collegial rather than the presidential system for the executive branch of government. This accommodated the long tradition of the rule of collective bodies in Switzerland. Under the Ancien Régime, the cantons of the Old Swiss Confederacy had been governed by councils of pre-eminent citizens since time immemorial, and the later Helvetic Republic (with its equivalent Directorate) as well as the cantons that had given themselves liberal constitutions since the 1830s had also had good experiences with that mode of governance. _Swiss Federal Council
The Swiss system avoids the over-centralisation of power which one sees happening in the US and across Europe.
If you are wondering how the US, for example, might work its way backward toward a Swiss form of government, the answer is that it cannot, as things stand now. The slippery slope toward increasing centralisation, increasing government envelopment of society, and decreasing freedoms for citizens and local communities, is too strongly fixed at the present.
Since the purpose of this blog is to expand on The Dangerous Child concept, it is important to restrict discussion to topics that overlap or directly deal with that theme. Wise persons will be able to read between the lines.
