[netctl][networkmanager]: RF Kill automatically disables Wi‐Fi on boot

Description

When I boot my Parabola, when Load/Save RF Kill Status loads, Wi‐Fi is disabled and I have to manually enable it each time (or make some hack).
It happened after I disabled Wi‐Fi in LXDE NetworkManager applet.
How can I make Wi‐Fi enabled by default, not disabled?

man systemd-rfkill states:

systemd-rfkill.service is a service that restores the RF kill switch state at early boot and saves it on each change. On disk, the RF kill switch state is stored in /var/lib/systemd/rfkill/

So it should be just a matter of setting the way you want before reboot.
If that doesn't work check the perms of /var/lib/systemd/rfkill/ and any files there in
if that doesn't work delete the files there in so systemd-rfkill can create a fresh one

Also check that it's not the LXDE NetworkManager applet that is stuck at switching it off.

and note that there are important differences between the hardware
being "on/off", and secondly, the network manager bringing the
interface "up/odwn", and thirdly, the network manager auto-connecting
to a specific network - though the end result of either of those,
would be manifest as: no internet
