LP Platform Committee felony endorsement

Joining enemy to fight U.S.  (link)

The clipping is from when HUAC was praised as a good thing because it investigated baaad Christian National Socialists rather than goood communist socialists. I personally am all in favor of destructive Antifa saboteurs spitting in the faces of armed border guards. I expect to be delighted as a spectator to the outcome–provided only that the infiltrating saboteur does not claim to represent the Libertarian Party.

But alas, such is not the case.(link) The same infatuated public-mind-reader who attacks the reasonably good migration plank we had in 2008 and 2016–when LP vote share ROSE by a factor of 3.28–is doubling down. The LP Platform Committee’s version of Josef Belohlavek now demands that “we” endorse uninspected entry of malcontents from every brainwashed dictatorship and People’s State, nevermind the corona virus, ebola carriers, wanted murderers, or religious berserkers in suicide vests.

This has to seem like some sort of overstatement or mischaracterization. PLEASE read it in the words of the “libertarian” whose feelings determine what laws we seek–not to repeal so much as to urge others to violate.(link) In the real world I handle stories of poor miserable wretches lured into detention and deportation proceedings after being urged to simply invade without permission and tell a hard luck story. The Migration plank (which in 2016 helped us earn 4 MILLION votes) needs to say:

… Political freedom and escape from tyranny demand that individuals not be unreasonably constrained by government in the crossing of political boundaries. Economic freedom demands the unrestricted movement of human as well as financial capital across national borders. However, we support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a credible threat to security, health or property.

The omitted first sentence is counterproductive package-dealing. Terrorism and communicable disease entry, like the dropping of aerial bombs, are NOT free trade.

Thomas Knapp and everyone else on the platform committee who participated in the mutilation and disfigurement of what in 2016 was an attractive Migration plank need to RESIGN and volunteer for something constructive–like running for office and meeting voters. Thanks to them I no longer donate over and above dues to the National LP. Other Libertarians revolted by sabotage planks are deserting the national party to support state and local party organizations instead–or returning to the Kleptocracy in disgust. As in 1982, the National LP has succumbed to the pressure of hostile infiltrators out to see to it that LP spoiler votes shall not compete with the Kleptocracy.(link) The best way to accomplish this is add backstabbing planks to make us look like allies and abettors of parasites and provocateurs.

Effect of adding poison planks–THE DONATION DRAIN! Money, votes, goodwill… gone…

Prohibition and The Crash, on Amazon Kindle

Why do refugees flee Statesward? Because the Republican Party’s 1928 Good Neighbor Policy began the exportation of the fanatical prohibitionism that brought on the Crash and left the US economy smoldering in the Great Depression. Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929, explains how looter fanatic agents raiding banks in a fractional-reserve monetary structure SHRINK economies here, there and everywhere into black holes of banking panics and liquidity crises.

LSD replaces masturbation

From George Orwell’s reminiscences of boarding school days in 1915 comes this jewel of an aide-memoire:

A feeling of doom descended upon me. So I was guilty too. I too had done the dreadful thing, whatever it was, that wrecked you for life, body and soul, and ended in suicide or the lunatic asylum. Till then I had hoped that I was innocent, and the conviction of sin which now took possession of me was perhaps all the stronger because I did not know what I had done.

Forty-five years later both Kinsey reports had been published, Atlas Shrugged and Stranger in a Strange Land were best-sellers, and every boy had surreptitious access to articles debunking superstition and pseudoscience in Satan’s own Playboy Magazine. Christian National Socialist Truths had–like their predecessors asserting that beer and rum led to murder, insanity, suicide–become the object of braying laughter, and nobody believed that touching oneself would result in blindness, insanity or hair growing on the palms of one’s hands. Enter Aldous Huxley and Timothy Leary as the involuntary Saviors of doomed disciplinarian dogma.

Senator John F Kennedy established a dallying liaison with next-door-neighbor and later acidhead artist Mary Pinchot Meyer back when Huxley and Leary were early adopters. A year before the assassination the name Dr Dana Farnsworth began appearing as attribution in fake news “scientific” articles insinuating that LSD and similar drugs “have the power to damage the individual psyche, indeed cripple it for life.” The “scoutmaster’s stern talk” was again resurrected to save youth from leather-winged Satanism.  Here was Satan’s own drug “abuse” as replacement for the disparaged and discredited self-abuse theories of the previous century!

Sure enough, Congress and the Several States deputed bands of armed thugs authorized to arrest, rob, shoot and kill such LSD users as had not already leapt to their deaths out of skyscraper windows. Abusive fathers whose daughters ran away from home now had The Devil’s Own Temptation as an alibi–until medical examiners disproved the hogwash after the furore had died down.(link) Millions upon millions or youths meanwhile met for Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Hendrix, The Doors, Cream and Mammas and the Papas, etc. concerts to disprove by experiment the rabid disinformation–yet were robbed, jailed and shot just the same for another three decades. Nixon was forced out, the Libertarian party began getting pro-choice votes before there even was such a thing anywhere else, and now earns a thousand times as many votes as in that 1972 election–a share now growing at 80% a year.

So here we are 49 years later. Those pro-choice, anti-war, and pro-rights votes stopped the Prohibition-Dixiecrat-Republican fascist dreikaiserbund from threatening birth control clinics with guns, and have by now removed deadly prohibitions on many plant leaves… Best estimates indicate that Libertarian candidates have drained off over 200 million votes since 1972. Many a fascist kleptocrat has lost to a communist kleptocrat (and vice-versa) after local voters chose instead to cast ballots for THEIR OWN FREEDOM!

Today a new bunch of pseudoscientists assert that “electrical generation has the power to damage the collective environment, indeed cripple it”–unless men with guns are sent out to arrest, rob, shoot and kill such electrical energy providers as have not already been lynched by addled regulators. Since the evident victims of this latest superstitious lynch mob consist predominantly of instigators of the earlier superstitious lynch mobs enacting Comstockism, national prohibition, Blue Laws, military involuntary servitude and additional cruel prohibition laws, it is not at all easy to work up a lot of sympathy while schadenfreude comes quite naturally.

The LP has no prejudice against electrical energy, so elections–to the extent not rigged by Nixon subsidies–now include a sort of Darwinian intelligence test that will determine the survival of the parties most fit to cope with a reality-based environment.

Climate data v. Reason magazine

 

A thought experiment for congregants of Misanthropic Global Warming. Data since 1900 show a decreasing temperature trend and an exploding population..

People are easier to count than tenths of a degree

Common Era Population Growth

Reason magazine has added a mathless science guy to our sources of documendacity, someone Zack evidently listens to.(link) The story is that although untampered data show no warming trend, warmunist scientist impersonators at the State Science Institute and Ministry of Truth have altered temperature data records cooling the past so as to create an apparent warming trend where thermometers say none exists.(link) (link)

This is another mutation of the 1960 Soviet prediction that unless greedy egoism is again disarmed (by a new set of Kristallnacht laws), we’re all gonna die.(link) Preceding that was Thomas Malthus, who–shortly after the calculus was developed and became widespread–predicted too soon a catastrophe based on 18th century technology and a linear hypothesis. Because Malthus and Paul Ehrlich both made math errors–the story goes–there is no problem, and anyone apprehensive about a population increasing vertically at 220,000 people a day on a planet of constant surface area is deluded. This is, again, too hasty a generalization.(link)

The math is not all that simple, granted.(link) But the second derivative (rate of change of rate of change) of the population growth curve changed sign in the early sixties–with birth control pills. Data show such a change happened twice before, in the mid-1300s when the Black Death spread from Asia to Europe, then again in secondary bubonic plague epidemics in the 15th and 16th centuries.

The second derivative went from positive to negative and the population curve itself did the same, albeit briefly, after nearly half of everyone died (some 200 million), then again because another 150 million or so died out of a population of about 600 million. The changes were quick because only a small fraction as many people existed when the plagues hit. Later, WWI and influenza made an almost invisible wobble in the data sequence.(link)

The pill was widespread when Reason became a thing, yet our second derivative had gone from positive to negative shortly before with 3.5 billion people alive. Now, after a half-century of growing less steep (after 11,950 years of steepening) the growth curve is still all but vertical and population increases by 7 million people a month. Even though that rate of change in the rate of change has been mainly decreasing since Hospers and Nathan were LP candidates and population was increasing by 76 million a year, world population is currently increasing by 80 million a year and will continue to increase for another century we get to zero population growth–barring some Malthusian disaster.

Nuclear electricity (as the reason article acknowledges) if freed of coercive strangulation, could enable humanity to continue along mathematical curves. If aggressive coercion prevails, nuclear and biological weapons can distort the curve to look like we’d been broadsided by bubonic plague or Great Leap Forward. During economic collapse, death rates can change really fast.(link)

Banking systems can also change pretty fast under coercive duress–this occurred in the 1920s.

Geodesic Gifs

Fans of David Kruschke’s Dome Cookbook of Geodesic Geometry will get a kick out of the B&W gifs at the Necessary Disorder Tumblr site (link)

The domes are difficult to scroll down to--not because of the loading of other gifs so much as the sensory overload of how the same creator’s competing GIFs clamor for admiration. These are gorgeous works of art.

And speaking of gorgeous works of art, how would an inexpensive Kindle book unfolding the mysteries of the stock market Crash that warned of the coming Great Depression grab you?

Brazilian echoes Christian National Socialism

Auguste Compte flag design

Note the AMEN replacing the Compte slogan

A lot of commotion has been raised about a recent appointee to a socialist bureaucracy in Brazil. The suit got all hissy over Fernanda Montenegro (imagine Brazil’s answer to Helen Mirren or Meryl Streep) posing tied to a stake atop a pile of books ready for burning. In America, the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice PROUDLY depicted its advocacy of book burning and laws banning ALL birth control with ten-year tours on a chain gang and hefty fines in gold–16 years before Hitler was born! The last of those Comstock Laws were overturned in 1973. The hysteria was repeated with Beatles albums after a John Lennon remark about popularity.(link)

Brazilian comedians v. Lynch mobs

“Porta dos Fundos” is itself a play on words worthy of the Firesign Theater. Indeed, Fire Exit works as one of the myriad translations for the name of Brazil’s premier comedy troupe. In a country plagued by Richard Nixon’s campaign subsidy laws–where folks are forced to vote for some 16 fascist and another 16 communist parties–all of them campaigning at the pleasure of a politically-appointed panel of legal geezers–comedy becomes a dangerous profession.

Energy Egoism

Chattel slavery collectivism

Energy slaves or human bondage?

Much of the 20th Century was a struggle between the non-chattel slavery of collectivism and the liberation of humanity by bringing electric power into the service of production and survival. But electric power requires understanding of Faraday’s law and the Maxwell equations, which the looter intelligentzia eschew scornfully as egotistical hubris or worse: pulp science fiction!

Michael Faraday as Prometheus

A 1953 edition of Ayn Rand’s Anthem

Yet Rand’s predictions made after Herbert Hoover had comfortably ensconced Adolf Hitler into power over Germany–while Soviet and National Socialism closed in on  Poland–have come awkwardly true again.

How dared you! 1937

How dared you! 1937, 2019

“How dared you think that your mind held greater wisdom than the minds of your brothers?” —Collective 0-0009 in Anthem, by Ayn Rand

The chairs this child sits in Mommy’s lap on while cutting long-division class cost roughly nine grand apiece used.

And if this (electricity) should lighten the toil of men,” said Similarity 5-0306, “then it is a great evil, for men have no cause to exist save in toiling for other men.” (Anthem, by Ayn Rand, 1937, 1946)

Le plus ça change, le plus c’est la même chose. Altruism leaves no choice but between predatory dictatorships for either the priesthood (conservatism, fascism) or the politicians (socialism, communism).
