The Sound of One Hand Clapping

Adam Smith actually spoke of two hands, one of them invisible but productive, the other camouflaged and parasitical. This unproductive hand, once it has withered the invisible hand of freedom and uncoerced self-interest–the hand represented by the Bill of Rights–has nothing to clap against. I call this sinister item The Forgotten Hand.

forgottenhandUnproductive hands can multiply and fan out, destroying the host nation like an infestation of roundworms, grubs, termites, lampreys or bacteria–all the while reaching out and spreading to others. Once upon a time–before Soviet starvation, Gulags, Todes-schutzen Berlin Wall snipers, brainwashing and torture–the shining ideal of the unproductive hand shifted from the failures of monarchism to a new embodiment in theoretical communism. After all, before 1917 nobody had ever actually observed government communism outside of conjecture. Since 1917, however, the horrors of communo-fascist terrorism have been an object lesson in how altruism nurtures coercion, mass death and mass deception.

Once again the pervasive conditioning of Christian National Socialism, whose nationalization and asset-forfeiture-generated shock waves spread outward, weakening or toppling every economy in their path poses a threat. Eclipsed by this mystical evil we still have the persistent influence of Chinese communism. In a reversal of the missionary-inspired Fifth Column Taeping rebellion that weakened the Celestials during their Opium Wars and America’s Civil War and Reconstruction era, China is itself using the New Left Greeligion to throttle industry with carbon taxes.

globalcommies2012The sound of one hand clapping is heard wherever looters impose altruism at gunpoint. It is the sound of one hand waving the flies away from a child who has died of starvation or an adult killed by violent coercion. This was a sound too familiar all over China in the 18th and 19th Centuries, as Europeans used poppy goo and foreign mysticism to drain away the nation’s wealth. By their lights, revolution and communism saved them from industrialized addiction as of 1911. Also by their lights a Carbon Tax transferring wealth from the White Devils to the Celestial Empire would be no more than reparation for harm unjustly visited upon them.

Unfortunately for China, the ramping-up of temperature data fraud to fabricate a Global Warming scare–after Green Party spoiler votes resulted in the prohibitionist Democratic party’s defeat by God’s Own Prohibitionists–became too obvious in the discrepancy between satellite data and tamper-susceptible ground stations. Ironically, internal prohibitionism imposed on China by England was the direct cause of the Celestial Empire’s economic ruin, just as American-imposed prohibitionism has exported the George Bush asset-forfeiture Depression to the rest of the world. We could learn from China’s sad experience with coercion, and the Chinese would profit from an examination of freedom.

The Democratic party could have won the election by adopting the Libertarian repeal plank as the Democrats of 1932 adopted the Liberal Party repeal plank. But continuing prohibition–with police shooting our kids in the back to please Big Pharma–was more important to them than freedom. People and parties get what they deserve. The Dems got booted out and the increased its vote share by over 300%!

Look me up if ever in need of translation of laws or lawsuits from Spanish or into Portuguese & English–or simultaneous interpreting of a political event.

Communism defeats Democrats in 1952

Ayn Rand recognized The New Left as The Anti-Industrial Revolution in 1971. The Nixon Administration was busy completing the task of injecting German National Socialism into American ideology. So, that same year David Nolan went ahead with formation of a Libertarian Party to counteract the twin totalitarian trends of the 1930s.

The Libertarian Party threatened the Christian National Socialism Republicans had successfully imported after Herbert Hooverville’s destruction of the economy and their crony mercantilist-cum-prohibitionist party. It took another 24 years to elect the German-descended, non-teetotalitarian soldier who “defeated Hitler,” and even then only out of fear of the communist faith in Korea, a faith the Delano and Roosevelt dynasties had unwittingly boosted by abetting Britain’s Opium Wars.

But Ike’s coattails also dragged in Richard Nixon–the embodiment of the Waffen military-industrial complex grafted onto These States. Nixon acted to crush the Libertarian Party within 24 hours of its formation. Americans promptly got the Weathermen, Symbionese Liberation Front and Black and Grey panthers instead.

Predatory mercantilism backed by nationalsocialism is coercive and therefore unstable, just as all socialism is unstable. It’s 99 years since soviet socialism began murdering people, and the Dems still worship those ideas just as God’s Own Prohibitionists worship the more Germanic and christianized version of the same thing.

Spoiler votes interfere with entrenched parties getting “their” henchmen into government jobs and paychecks. For this reason third party votes are extremely powerful tools. But the 1952 threat of Chinese international socialist (communist) military victory in Korea completely drowned out Progressive and Prohibition Party voter support (0,2%, 0,1%) that election. With virtually no spoiler votes, Ike became the first Republican victory since 1928. That was the year the GO-Pee was completely taken over by Klansmen and Prohibitionists.

This latest election proved National Socialism and crony mercantilism are still popular, but totalitarian prohibitionism is fading fast after George Waffen Bush‘s asset-forfeiture prohibitionism again turned These States into Hoovervilles in 2007. The Gaia-worshipping version of totalitarian collectivism–gulped hook, line and sinker by the Dems after their Y2k rout by Green spoiler votes–was co-opted and manipulated a little too visibly by Chinese totalitarians. Genuine scientists like Rudy Heller exposed the fraud behind the political Greeligion, and intellectuals of the looter persuasion, innocent of physics and math, will never understand that the world was becoming cooler while venal frauds and data falsifiers falsified simple facts.

Now, like Millerites on October 23, 1844, Democrats are shocked, disappointed, bewildered, but still suckers. Their own false superstition born of predatory socialism led them to conclusions demonstrably WRONG to anyone who can read a thermometer and plot a curve. Trump won. There went their chances of leeching off of others without first producing faith-based credentials. There too went many of the libertarian-gained rights women hoped to hang onto.

Letter to Arlo Guthrie


Arlo Guthrie


Arlo fan





Howdy Arlo, I read with shocked amazement that you’d admitted, in print, to voting Republican. Immediately I rationalized that this was probably back during the Cold War, in hopes of maybe a defense against H-missiles–a youthful indiscretion is all. Surely we both learned from watching Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Waffen Bush… right? 

Then I remembered that you’re the same Arlo Guthrie, who turned himself in for littering in the Alice’s Restaurant Massacre. You’re the trusting and unsuspicious youngster from Stockbridge Massachussetts who had failed to count upon a THIRD POSSIBILITY and you were immediately arrested… handcuffed… I’m here to talk about that third possibility, the one that strikes off the handcuffs and lets non-violent people like us out of jail.

I meeean, I’m here to talk about the libertarian party because I don’t, and am so reckless as to suppose you don’t want your kids to be shot or jailed over weed, your home nationalized by the IRS, or your car stolen by state troopers exercising faith-based asset forfeiture and causing crashes and depressions in the name of Prohibition. (This is the part where the audience, you, chimes in to say NO in four-part harmony).

IF this seems reasonable, then BOTH halves of the Kleptocracy must seem pretty much alike and wrong to you and me both. Both the Democratic and the Republican parties in their published platforms want to keep the IRS treatening Willie Nelson, asset forfeiture looting threatening the economy, military bombing crusades, crashes, panics, deportations… I am not making this up–I’ve read those platforms.

Remember walking down Haight street in that freest of free markets and thinking it wasn’t all that weird?
Uncoerced markets work because prices–unlike votes wasted on teevee candidates–carry information. One reason spoiler votes are 6 to 36 times as hard-hitting as soft machine votes is because of cancelling. After all, 50 million platitudes divided by 50 million of the exact same platitudes equals one. Fractions are like that, whether you like it or not. You can simplify them by cancelling out the stuff that’s the same, and that makes the 1% remainder easier to compare.

Every politician who loses by 1% percent when the Libertarian (or Green) party candidate got 2% thinks about how outcomes could have been different if only he’d offered friendlier (or more misanthropic) laws. Those votes put useful information into the hands of decisionmakers regardless of what candidate gets elected. Because this information acts to improve the laws, the Libertarian party voters and candidates always win because we only want bad laws to go away.

The only way to vote for DIFFERENT LAWS–and be counted–is to vote Libertarian. Voting Green or CPUSA only presses the Dems further down the Ho-Chi-Minh trail to the old East Berlin, and voting for the Tea or Consta-too-shun parties only pushes the GOP further Klanward into Italian fascism or German National Socialism. Voting for either one of these soft machines is kinda like jumping up and down yelling kill! kill! kill! But LP voters jump up and down hollering: repeal! decriminalize! reduce! So I agree with you that–unlike piles of garbage–it’s better to have two parties than one. All I’m asking is that they not both be trying to get us killed.

Some of my friends (who watch teevee) are worried that their vote might be the one that could have defeated the girl-bulliers. I’m not worried because bookies are betting cash money that the Lady candidate is going to win. They also bet the GO-Pee candidate and my candidate, Gary Johnson, are both going to lose. Here are today’s odds. When the numerator is larger than the denominator, they expect that candidate to not get elected. Both my candidate and the guy with the orange hair have larger numerators. Hillary’s numerator is smaller than her denominator, which means Irish bookies’ actuarial calculations at lead them to expect her to be the first First Lady ever to become President.**


A 7 to 2 payout means Trump only has a 28% probability of winning.

That’s about it. I’m happy to hear you on the radio now and then–but there are limits to how many times I’m allowed to play Alice’s Restaurant on the stereo. I’ll rest a lot easier if I find out you said something nice about voting for peace and legalization and all kinds of groovy things–as opposed to bullying girls, beating people over the head with nightsticks or sending them off with implements of destruction to do mean, nasty, ugly things on the other side of the planet.

Your fan, Hank Phillips.

**Unfortunately for the Dems, Paddypower did not compare the 1% remainder leaving a platform that promised to make electric power plants illegal and tax air molecules against a competing platform (copied from the libertarian party) that promised to keep power stations safe and legal.

What is Winning?

GOPNSDAPThe key to political campaigns is in the definition of winning. Suppose someone wanted his son shot and jailed, home confiscated, unemployment up, and all markets crashed, you’d suggest he vote Republican. Same solution if they were to want a daughter to bleed to death because of medieval approaches to accidental pregnancy. To Republican, Christian National Socialist and Islamic State legislators that’s winning–provided their candidate also gets the government job. Communists and lay socialists on the other hand prefer to forego the government job but force the kleptocracy to change the laws in response to the pressure of their spoiler votes. It’s kind of like a “sacrifice” move in a chess game, in exchange for gaining tactical or positional compensation farther along. So if their platform planks seem “extreme” (meaning consistent with their ideology), that’s not a problem. Spoiler votes will gradually make those positions seem wearily centrist. That’s the strategy that enacted the 16th and 18th Amendments.

demcommieWhen socialist parties lose, it’s because (their cheerleaders feel) that particular unverifiable secret ballot election was rigged. Deep down you know this is true–or at least unfalsifiable–so the tendency is to feel a twinge of sympathy for the raw deal they got. But it’s not just ordinary socialists. Christian National Socialists, Islamic Mohammedans and devout altruistic Communists all want essentially the same thing: decisions imposed at gunpoint by the better people who know what’s good for the riff-raff. Of course they have surrogates. National Socialists of Third Reich Christian persuasions have since 1932 been the hand inside the Republican party sockpuppet. International Socialists of the East German Communist variety have lately pulled the strings that move the arms and mouths of Democratic Party spokesmen. One can’t think independently and still have faith in altruism.

But suppose a voter wants freedom? That is, not the initiation of force, but rather, voluntary cooperation? Suppose you want the Marxist personal income tax abolished, its collectors disarmed and returned to the productive labor market? What about those who want to eat, drink and smoke what they prefer–people to whom winning means becoming the masters of their own financial decisions?

Fake Trump combover?

Not a Fake Trump combover!

In that case, the recommendation can only be to vote for the LP platform Gary Johnson is standing on. It is easy to verify that, as in 1892 or 1908, each third-party spoiler vote has way more law changing power than a vote wasted on shape-shifting actors fronting for soft machines. Dry Christian Progressives backing small parties in the 1890s paved the way for Prohibition making light beer a felony. Likewise, dry Christian Socialists paved the way for Soviet Communism in Russia, National Socialism in Germany, and transfer payments to non-producers elsewhere. Yet all their parties–Greenback, Farmer-labor, Anti-monopoly, Socialist, Socialist labor, Prohibition, LOST by their candidates getting less than half the electoral vote. However, they eventually won what they wanted by changing the laws, whether through enactment, court decisions, or repeal.

I’d wager that even if Gary Johnson were to receive 60% of the votes, a way would be found to defraud the election. But the fright would nevertheless cause the looters to abolish a mess of bad laws–which is what I really want. THAT’s winning. Consider making a Paypal donation at I absolutely guarantee your donation will change 600% to 3600% as many words in laws as it would if wasted on either of the Kleptocracy soft machines.



vampire lamprey

IMAGINE A VAMPIRE BAT, HOOKWORM or lamprey feeling sorrow or remorse, shedding crocodile tears or walrus and carpenter tears for its “host.” That is parasitical collectivist socialism voting its nourishment. Parasites are masters of camouflage and mimesis. Many inject their victims with painkillers or anticoagulants, the better to drain off their blood.
And why not inject the victims with disinformation, the better to lead them to slaughter? “Those are only showers…” “The common good before the individual good…” “To each according to his needs…” “Suffer the little children to come unto me…” “You won’t regret this…” “It’s a necessary sacrifice…” “God is on our side…” “Otherwise your vote is wasted…” “The outcome is already determined…”  or “This won’t hurt a bit…”

tickTo them this is a natural, inevitable process, to which resistance is counterproductive and futile. Parasites have no conscience of wrong or remorse for their victims.

But in every case, with both parties, men with guns are standing by to leave you no choice… Are you voting for that? Are you voting to continue being a host to unproductive parasites, to help them pretend they’re not deadly, or would you rather vote your conscience and be parasite-free?

Ever considered voting for principled candidates bound by their party platform to vote against laws that initiate force… laws sending men with guns after imagined crimes with no victims? Will you vote to help parasites feast on and infest the defenseless? Why not instead invest a valuable vote to defend the rights of productive individuals to act on their own behalf, folks who live by their own effort and give by their own generosity? Why not vote Libertarian?

Dry Presidents

When Hoover was still president

Economic Results of Republican Prohibition Policies

Republican presidents Rutherford Hayes (1877-81), Benjamin Harrison (1889-93) and Herbert Hoover had three things in common: none drank alcohol, all were intensely and mystically religious, all presided major depressions–much like the one that began in 2007. Donald Trump never drinks or gets high either, but endorses all of the faith-based GOP policies that lead to economic collapse, market crashes, bankruptcies, recession and unemployment.

Rutherford Hayes, husband of Lemonade Lucy elected in a recession, returned control of the South to the prohibitionist Ku-Klux Klan, then signed a treaty drastically curtailing Chinese immigration. His wife banned all alcoholic beverages from ALL government functions.

Benjamin Harrison was, like George Bush Jr., the dynastic son of a US president. After defeating sitting president Grover Cleveland, Harrison signed the inflationary Silver Purchase Act that used the US mints to subsidize Western mining corporations. Harrison also signed the Antitrust Act, and abetted a coup to topple the Hawaiian government. The accelerating economic panic strengthened the looter People’s Party (pushing for a Communist Manifesto income tax) which received nearly 9% of the vote and 4 seats in the House. A high tariff on legal opium had created a smuggling industry by rail down from godless Canada. That avenue Harrison pinched off a month before the March 4 inauguration following Grover Cleveland’s  second election victory. This sudden regulatory change exacerbated the financial tumult of the times, and the People’s party pushed through an income tax neither entrenched party wanted. This deepened the depression until the Supreme Court, in desperation, struck down the parasitical monster.  Voters then struck down the parasitical William Jennings Bryan, who also despised beer and stumped for tee-totalitarianism.

Herbert Hoover’s Chinese interpreter had to surreptitiously drink all the liquor their hosts offered the mining engineer. This was back when the martial artist Boxer Rebellion sought to evict the foreign devils and their heroin from the Celestial Empire. Hoover promised in his inaugural speech was a “consecration under God…through the guidance of Almighty Providence”. “We are steadily building a new race,” promised the new president, nine years after Adolf Hitler endorsed “a Positive Christianity” and five years after Mein Kampf declared that positive Christianity the embodiment of ethical altruism. Hoover decried “disregard and disobedience of law” just 24 hours after mandatory minimum mystics in Congress made a 12-pack of light beer a federal felony with a five-year prison term and a fine equivalent to $110,000 in 1996 dollars.

Asset forfeiture, instituted in 1932 and enforced by Hoover’s Executive Order using income tax inspection as a prohibition enforcement mechanism, completely shut down the entire national banking system BEFORE Franklin Roosevelt’s inauguration. Hoover’s election was the last Republican victory for 24 years, during which time God’s Own Prohibitionists struggled to erase all records linking their policies to the financial ruin of the nation while Christian National Socialists were speedily tried and hanged in Nuremberg. In fact, the first use of simultaneous interpreters was precisely to speed up the trials and execution of Nazi war criminals.

Jimmy Carter banned most alcoholic beverages from the White House and kept all recreational drugs illegal. Good luck getting the Dems to nominate another faith-addled mystic. Which brings us to the current Republican nominee, the one, the Dilbert cartoonist assures us, “reportedly never had a drink, an illegal drug, or a cigarette.” George Waffen Bush invited faith-based organizations to wax fat and fanatical on federal funding through the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. These transfer payments from taxpayers to unproductive hands were preserved and expanded to include Mohammedan faith-based organizations by Democratic President Barak Obama. Obama also firmly enforces the criminalization of victimless enjoyment of cannabis, including asset-forfeiture confiscation of homes, property and bank accounts. Obama’s likely successor (favored by bookies at 3 to 1 odds to win in the Electoral College) Mrs. Clinton also promises to bleed tax dollars for asset forfeiture and toward the coffers of collectivised lobbyists who want men with guns sent out to arrest doctors or kill young people over vegetable matter and pregnancy prophylaxis pills. That is the situation today in a prohibitionist global depression that began in 2007.

Please consider making a donation to a Libertarian Party Candidate near you. Every libertarian spoiler vote is worth 6 to 36 votes wasted on tax-and-spend looter prohibitionists.


Prayer and Abstinence

crumbygodDoes it make sense to depend on a bunch of politicians to make toddlers pray in government schools? Has begging the government to jail doctors forced godless Jezebels to raise the children of nice Christian boys? Have the armed agents of czarist prohibitionism done away with pagan rituals enhanced by entheogens? Have depressions, mass bankruptcies and flash crashes been worth the asset-forfeiture sharing for Christ? Herbert Hoover and Donald Trump never touched liquor, so does that make them equally qualified presidential prohibitionists?

If the answer to these questions is no, perhaps you should take personal responsibility for convincing Almighty God to tweak human nature ever so slightly. There is nothing wrong with eliminating middlemen and going straight to the source of all Truth and Power. Your own answers should by now have moved you not to waste any more time, effort or treasure on craven and ineffective go-betweens. In the Good Book, it is The Lord himself who, in righteous wrath smites, crushes, consumes as stubble and dashes in pieces the disobedient.

15:6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

Does not The Bible say that it is up to the LORD to Make America Great Again, with no help or interference? Human meddling, judging by results, only gets in the way!

32:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people: 32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

Does it bother you that barbaric infidels like Gary Johnson eat of the Burning Bush? The DEA just stands there but GOD smites with WMD!

11:33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.

Are you tired of foreigners coming to These States to feast in plenty while the INS and DHS just stand there? Behold that GOD personally deported or smote interlopers long before politicians lured you out of His Church and into the Polls of Secular Democracy:

29:28 And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.
29:33 And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.
22:10 There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.
18:7 Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest’s office for everything of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest’s office unto you as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

So if The Political State refuses to mete out the punishment you consider just, you have only your meddling self to blame:

32:20 And He said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
32:22 For a fire is kindled in Mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
32:23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.

So turn your backs on the Orange-Haired False Antichoice. Repent your froward impertinence and Abstain from voting. Pray that the Lord shall again reveal His face to thee. Accursed are they who prophesy falsely that to turn from the False Antichoice is to cast your vote for the Jezebel who comes a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land. The Torch of Liberty is passed to a new generation, educated in this century, tempered by Cold War, challenged by another hard and bitter cult of fanatical superstition, proud of our ancient heritage–and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those individual rights to which this nation has always been committed.

Thanks to Scott Adams for suggesting this productive approach to political change.
