Repeal Victimless Usurpations

 

If either Kleptocracy party wants to “win,” its platform should include repeal, decriminalize and expunge. Tarl tells it like it is, but leaves out the relative law-changing clout of Libertarian spoiler versus Kleptocracy bootlicking votes.(link)

Remember Jerome Tuccille? He was a Libertarian candidate back about 1976, and wrote “It Usually Begins with Ayn Rand,” which I recommend.(link) He also wrote a Trump bio I haven’t read. But the important thing was the lesson he learned as a candidate. Every vote cost $6 in campaign spending at that time. Converting to current dollars, all else held constant, today’s votes would cost $36 apiece in 2020 dollars. 

It's a hard rain...

Spoiler vote replacement effect

So if I were to waste a vote on the Dem or GOP platform promises, that 0.00000007% of the vote total would accrue to the benefit of one or the other looter party as $36 worth. But the Libertarian party vote growth rate in 2016 was increasing at a slope of 1.2, which is an angle of 50 degrees, accelerating rapidly. This rapid growth imparts extra law-changing heft to each libertarian vote–heft that does not require that our candidates be sworn in

But Libertarian candidates did win 73 races last year, a palpable drain of money away from Kleptocracy coffers and an enormous decrease in their effective social pressure.(link) Their party mathematicians are painfully aware of these facts–especially the fact that when the LP.org vote share is larger than the difference between their “winner” and “loser,” the probability projections for their loot, pelf and boodle go out the window. Libertarian spoiler votes pack roughly 20x the law-changing clout of bootlicking Kleptocracy votes. So on average, LP spoiler votes are worth $720 apiece. If you instead vote Kleptocracy you are throwing away $684 worth of vote clout!

 

Nixon almost lost when girl-bullying racial collectivists handed George Wallace the electoral votes for four Dixiecrat States. Wallace, like JFK, was quickly riddled with bullets, which was the equivalent of a Chappaquiddick incident for nomination purposes.(link) The GOP absorbed the Klan and broke up the Solid South. On their third confrontation with the Libertarian Party–whose 1972 plank was rewritten as the Roe v Wade decision, Dems in 1980 plunked for subsidized birth control (link) rather than the Libertarian solution of deregulating the medical cartel. Their open borders preference for flowers and granola to repel Soviet nuclear attacks did them in.

NOW the Dems and God’s Own Prohibitionists(link) are realizing how spoiler votes change election outcomes, and whining lest your vote benefit YOUR FREEDOM rather than some looter politician’s hand in your pocket! Ain’t that something? Listen to what the looter parties say about each other and remember all that on election day!

Withholding sex?

Racial collectivism AND shooting your kids?

Libertarians against Crash and Depressions

 

Since 1998 I have shown that Prohibition enforcement–telling people at gunpoint what they may consume–caused the Crash and Great Depression. It is also the cause of most organized crime and cowardly ambushes of citizens by police and vice-versa. Voting Libertarian is your chance to save the economy from prohibition related depressions as in 1907, 1920, 1929, 1969, 1987 and 2008–not to mention the Flash Crashes. It is also the best way to keep your kids from being shot by men with guns acting on behalf of dangerous zealots inflamed with pseudoscientific beliefs. 

Republicans crash the economy by sending goons to confiscate homes, autos, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, life savings, aircraft and equipment. This causes money to disappear from the fractional-reserve banking system, and brings liquidity crunches, bankruptcies, stock crashes, recessions and unemployment. It also undermines the value of private retirement accounts. 

Democrats help Republicans do all of the above harm to the economy, and also to casually murder young people–especially young brown people–while importing the failed communist and national socialist policies that impoverish and kill people wherever they gain a foothold. Democrat-controlled cities resemble Venezuela and Cuba, Angola, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Syria and Togo. Democrat efforts to make demonize electric power and man industry are no less superstitious than Republican coercive exorcism of plant leaves as avatars of Satan. Helping either gang of looters is self-destructive and wrong. Setting them an example, and letting them lose by ignoring it is a teaching experience. 

The 2020 Republican and Democrat platforms STILL call for men with guns to rob, jail and shoot kids over plant leaves. 

Here are the Libertarian vote share percentages for the 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 elections now increasing at a slope of 1.2 or 50 degrees. This logistic replacement curve indicates we are on track to secure eleven million votes this presidential election. This will also upset many down-ballot races by upending the more violent candidates in favor of less cruel, better-educated and less fanatical replacement officeholders.

Killers with Badges, 1929

First Responder murderers acquitted

Gunfire-riddled auto in which Henry Virkula was murdered by ICE agents in 1929

Henry Virkula was out for a drive with his wife and kids when customs agents leapt out of the bushes and riddled their flivver with buckshot the night of June 8, 1929. This was during Dry Hope Herbert Hoover’s Administration under the Five and Ten law making beer a chain-gang felony 2 days before his Inauguration. Like today, the Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition and Other People’s Morals bellowed that the killing was “justified” under the eugenicist tenets of Positive Christianity. Dry Killers was the exact technical term used by citizens and newspapermen alike.

Army of God, just following orders

Christian National Socialists exulted in dry killer antics

First Responders were, as always, justified in murder, according to the experts on what Jesus would have done: 

“The second case was that of the De King killing in Aurora, Illinois.  That seemed perfectly horrible until the facts were ascertained and broadcast.  Now the most intelligent people know what happened and see considerable significance in the fact that the grand jury refused to indict the officer involved.  (…) On the Rouse case, the Board said Officer Rouse “killed a rum-runner in the act of committing two felonies,” adding: “The rum-runner had made an assault upon him by the use of poisonous gases produced by a smoke-screen device.  Officer Rouse was completely exonerated by the grand jury.  (…) (LA Examiner 6/17/1929)

Does this sound like a Minnesota cop union mouthpiece waving an “official” medical examiner’s report?(link

There were no throwdown guns, throwdown beer or throwdown medical examiner documendacities or rumors of active warrants to get overeager ambush murderers off the hook. In fact, the International Falls City Council promptly gave notice to Republican President Herbert Hoover on 18JUN1929: 

Dear Mr. President: The International Falls City Council voted and passed upon the following resolution:
                “Whereas at an open meeting of business men and city officials of this border city last June 14 an informal appeal to the President was drawn up, asking him to end the terrorism inflicted upon our citizens and neighbors by Federal customs patrolmen, engaged in prohibition enforcement;
                “and whereas, our appeal has remained unanswered, even though the vicious and unlawful conduct of said government agents have continued unabated‑‑except that there has been no fresh murder of our innocent neighbors;
                “Therefore, be it resolved that we, the City Council of the City of International Falls, in regular session assembled, do hereby remind the President that the memorialization of the citizens’ appeal was and is the articulate pleading of the community:
                “And be it further resolved that the City Council of the City of International Falls does hereby join its official voice in requesting from our President an urgent response to the pleas for help from our people. (Hoover 1929 1974  195)

Senator Millard Tydings of Maryland was at the time compiling a list of prohibition murders, naming names and giving particulars for publication in “Before and After Prohibition,” so politicians encountered tough sledding trying to ignore over a thousand slaughters.(link)

I thought I smelled beer... BLAM BLAM BLAM!

“Send these murderers to the penitentiary” appeared in Congressional debates.(link)

None of this mattered. It was only late in 1929 that statistician Clark Warburton began pointing out that the black market in banned beverages amounted to 5% of the entire U.S. economy, an amount larger than the entire budget of the federal government tasked by the 18th Amendment with killing, confiscating, libeling, padlocking, jailing and murdering every man woman and child in These States if that’s what it would take to force people to drink what the Prohibition Party ordered them to drink.(link) The Prohibition Party averaged 1.4% of the vote in 11 electoral campaigns. There was no Libertarian Party, but there was a Liberal Party demanding repeal.(link)

Libertarian vote growth

Can you say hockey-stick replacement curve?

By January of 1930, no religious fanatics dared debate the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment, armed with Warburton’s exhaustive reports and calculations on consumption of every possible ingredient used in the production of recreational beverages.(link) Women came out for repeal and financial collapse, unemployment, burgeoning prisons, Hoovervilles, riots, blockades, arson, cop-killings, hunger and economic contraction got the voters’ attention.(link)

The Democrats copied the Liberal Party plank demanding repeal of the Prohibition Amendment.(link)  Hoover promptly became a repeal advocate, but Republican National Socialism was into coercive eugenics and helping Hitler to power, and wouldn’t listen.(link) By March 4, 1933, with every bank in the nation already closed down, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn in and the Dems–who had not yet become communists–ruled the roost for 20 years. 

Does any of this sound familiar? like it rhymes? Why not compare the short and simple Libertarian Party Platform? 

Are you surprised to learn how the repeal of prohibition began? Buy my book, Prohibition and The Crash, for a month-by-month examination of how President Hoover’s enforcement of the Jones Five and Ten Law crushed the U.S. economy.

Wasted Votes defeating Boss Trump

The original post was treacherously destroyed, so It must have been worth rebuilding. If your post enabling libertarian votes disappears in a fog of “unexpected block encountered,” report it to me using the contact form below, willya?

Trump did an interview on Fox mentioning the LP getting 4.5% of the vote in 2016, then claiming us as [get this!] Republicans. But instead of legalizing acid and weed and stopping the individual income tax, he whined that he was “somewhat” libertarian and that we were wasting our votes on an anti-aggression platform. Republicans in Congress (the ones who nominated Bush and Mitt Romney) are more concerned with bullying pregnant girls, shooting youths and robbing assets over plant leaves. The real question is, can Trump survive the superstitious cowardice of the Republican Party?

Here is the part elided from the Youtube version: 

They always talk about Jill Stein. Jill Stein took, what? Half a percent? Well, I have a Libertarian—I’m somewhat libertarian I have to be honest with you, Rand Paul will tell you that — I have a Libertarian candidate on last time that got, what? Four and a half or so percent?  Those are all Republican voters. They’re wasting their vote, because — they have to vote for us. –Trump

“Us” Paleface? 

The Libertarian Party platform takes 30 minutes to read at LP.org–or listen to as a podcast. Here it is in Brazilian Portuguese: (link)

Legacy representative democracy means entrenched politicians who vote for Prohibition Party planks (shooting kids over plants, bullying pregnant girls), Communist & Econazi Party planks (more taxes and regulations, disarm and surrender, no nukes, ban electric power). Our law-changing spoiler votes change looter priorities by defeating the coercive creeps.(link) Let them try to deploy murderers and abet robbers and prohibitionists after they lose that hand in the till.(link)

God’s Own Prohibitionists prefer Drug Czarism to winning, Their efforts go into laws shooting kids and dogs, and setting up cartel dictatorships abroad to rob and murder the citizens of banana republics–like the Reagan-Bush-Biden Law.(link) These are things the Kleptocracy copied from our competitors–the Prohibition Party that wrecked the economy (link) and the Fabian communist parties that slowly rot the economy while collaborating with foreign dictatorships.(link)

The Libertarian platform has been clear for 48 years.(link) Assistant Drug Czar Biden is likewise a child-shooting, dog-killing, asset forfeiture prohibitionist beholden to communist China. Biden’s Red China has recently executed several Canadians for “drugs.”(link) This is the same Red China from which the deadly plague has wafted worldwide since late 2019. Biden’s China exports plagues and narcotics and inflicts the death penalty for 68 crimes, 44 of which are victimless. Good government gradually elbows aside entrenched, outdated and dangerous monarchies and kleptocracies incapable of grasping reality and legalizing freedom. 

Political replacement curve

Fisher-Pry replacement curve on semi-log graph. Out with monarchy, czars and socialism, in with democracy

This same curve fitting technique shows how the Libertarian vote share is inexorably increasing at an accelerating rate.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

If you support the force-initiating looter kleptocracy, know that Libertarian spoiler votes will continue beat the bloody snot out of your candidates’ campaigns until you copy our planks. The American Liberal Party made the same offer in 1931.(link) Herbert Hoover wanted the Republican party to adopt a repeal plank in 1932. Instead, National Socialist Republicans lost five elections in a row–and a war.

Pure Food Law Recession

Kill the tax-dodgers

1907 amendment: alcohol excise tax dodgers sentenced to death or blindness without a trial (link)

 A Reason Magazine article on the disputed definition of milk brought to mind the facts behind the Panic of 1907. (link)

The Pure Food Law passed in 1906, three years after the Silent Panic brought on by a Chinese boycott of American products. The boycott–three years after the Boxer Rebellion failed to exclude foreign morphine and needles from prohibitionist China–got the attention of U.S. industrialists and bankers and the mixed-economy politicians they owned and controlled. British baby syrup had Poison, Morphine written on the labels, and that made them comparatively honest and straightforward by Chinese standards. The Pure Food law only became enforceable in 1907, the Year of the Panic. This was the year of a Great Awakening in China, as Draconian measures were afoot in a War on Poppies. 

Theodore Roosevelt’s inherited fortune and guilt came from American participation in selling opium in China. Once promoted by assassination to the Presidency, the former Police Commissioner who had served the Comstockers and Anti-Vice societies as muscle to enforce Sunday closing of New York Saloons set out to put the Teeth into Temperance. Industrial alcohol would be excise-tax-free, provided poison were added to sicken, blind and/or kill any who drink it.

Bureau of Chemistry guru Wiley chose a pharmacopoeia definition of whiskey and wrote a Decision to make it binding.  Countering government chemist Wiley, Attorney‑General Bonaparte differed as to the Revealed definition of “whiskey” and offered his own alternatives: 

The following seem to me appropriate specimen brands or labels for (1) “straight” whisky/whiskey, (2) a mixture of two or more “straight” whiskies, (3) a mixture of “straight” whisky/whiskey and ethyl alcohol, and (4) ethyl alcohol flavored and colored so as to taste, smell, and look like whisky/whiskey.
(1) Semper Idem Whisky/whiskey: A pure, straight whisky/whiskey mellowed by age.
(2) E Pluribus Unum Whisky/whiskey: A blend of pure, straight whiskies with all the merits of each.
(3) Modern Improved Whisky/whiskey: A compound of pure grain distillates, mellow and free from harmful impurities.
(4) Something Better than Whisky/whiskey: An imitation under the pure food law, free from fusel oil and other impurities.  (Other suggestions primly censored as politically unwoke.)

The gauntlet was flung, the challenge accepted, and so began one of many parallel legal battles whose first casualty would be the American banking system and economy.

Vice: Jo Jorgensen, domestic terrist

Brawling looters matter

I mean Portland, Seattle? OK, Chicago, Minneapolis, Nueva Jork, Los Angeles, Kenosha?

A blue-eyed Aryan Portland murderer self-described as 100% Antifa was recently pumped up on VICE “news” as the goodthinkful Aryan First Responder™ providing “security” at brawling looters matter riots.(link) Someone claiming to be Krishna Andavolu cites one Tess Owens as the internationalsocialist reporter on nationalsocialist memes, rumors and hearsay.(link) Tess revealed that Libertarians dress up in shirts and march (or dance) with loaded guns wherever Antifa and brawling looters assemble. Listen to it yourself.(link) The part about Libertarians–who by definition and agreement reject the initiation of force–being the same thing as Boogaloo Boys described by the Vice reporter as (7:40 to 7:57), “code for civil war…” ackshully

because it was used to refer to as an sort of uprising against the government among the Libertarians and Second Amendment gun rights crowd.

At Radikaal an altruist (Coughs Murder?) who, like Krishna recites English as though thinking in Urdu, introduced Tess of the d’Uber-shrills. Tess speaks propah English, much like Robert Griffiths or Jeremy Corbyn–and recites many of the same stanzas, only without the boojwah and WORKing Class punctuators.(link) Her verbiage is sound-edited into a smarmy stacatto on and on about: anti-government kind of troubling lot who exploit and are plotting with explosives, wear shirts with dangerous underpinnings conflated with dangerous neo-nazis down rabbit-holes and [get this!] “dancing with guns!” Considerable airtime also went into making the Federation for American Immigration Reform out to be worse than the SS guards who kept prisoners from escaping from Treblinka, Auschwitz, Sobibor and Majdanek. Why? Because they help preserve inspection of entry visas.

Tess rattles on like a George Waffen Bush two-minutes Hate about domestic islamofascist terrists and mean-type fashions, and accellerationists who hate Law Enforcement™. Like any antichoice Republican or other looter she is absolutely in favor of the initiation of deadly force and breathes “Law Enforcement™”(link) the way RNC attendees breathe “First Responders™” (the murdering cops to whom they dedicate their Positive Christian National Socialist platform.) Oh, the blonde looter gunman, remember him? Like Goering, he preferred the firing squad to the noose. 

None of the Vice crowd have in my hearing said anything about getting rid of cruel laws or dialing back coercion. On this score they (Vice, Radikaal, Antifa, Dems, GOP) are more like Biden and Pence, Lenin and Hitler than any Libertarian I know… They sound a bit like successful hijacker Jeremy “Spike” Pinhead, the legalize-murder anarchist infiltrator hostile to the U.S. Constitution now hobbling Jo’s campaign. We have the Mises Caucus to thank for helping Jeremy shove the Libertarian Party into an anarchist jurisdiction. With friends like these… (link) who needs embarrassments!(link

Nazi Snowflakes then and now

Nazis outside of Syracuse

See original newspaper story (link)

Google News Archive contains the Spartanville Herald-Journal report of German Ambassador Dieckhoff getting all bent out of shape over former U.S. Ambassador William Dodd’s insensitive and hurtful comments on Hitler having his enemies rounded up and shot. As a private American citizen, Dodd could say anything he pleased. The story ran on 15JAN1938. An American comedian is said to have been arrested by National Socialists for a Berlin nightclub quip that most dictators jail their enemies; but Hitler jails his friends!

But that was then and this is now and America, right? Not so fast! At Syracuse University, according to Reason Magazine, The Tab Syracuse, a social media account that covers Syracuse University news, posted a photo of a syllabus that references the coronavirus as both the “Wuhan flu” and “Chinese Communist Party Virus.”(link) Here again, nothing hurts socialism like the truth leaking out.(link)

You can test this theory by describing a school owned and coercively operated by any level of government as a “government school” in the presence of intellectuals of the looter persuasion. The descriptor is objectively accurate, yet collectivist programming requires hotly riposting with the false belief that coercion is voluntary and that “The” government is “the” people–unless the wrong party is elected.

Oddly, the most strenuously worked up are the weak-minded derivative socialists divided along religious lines. “Right” conservatives wish they had the fortitude of Hitler, Franco, Mussolini and Moseley, while “Left” progressives pine for the decisiveness of Bellamy, Howells, London, Browder, Reed, Lenin, Mao and Marx. Today’s Bushes, Romney, Christie and Palins are just as insipid and tentative as Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi and Sanders compared to the real thing in the bottom square.

The yellow streak

The yellow streak seeks to parcel out coercion

To recognize that a communist dictatorship released a germ warfare agent on the planet is thoughtcrime pure and simple.(link) When the Soviet communist dictatorship next door allowed an unnoticed Xenon buildup to explode and ignite a  power reactor with no containment powering a military radar, looter newspapers knew better than to even hint of such an event even as fallout triggered radiation alarms all over the globe.(link) Yet the folks triggered and upset by the thought the communist virus may have been a germ weapon are just as upset by mention of the cover-up. (link)

Objectivists and libertarians are no less consistent in the defense of freedom than are communists and fascists in their insistence on coercion. Only the confused, cowardly or indecisive seek to compromise on a Guyana Kool-Ade cocktail blending free speech with censorship. Why not take a stand and cast a highly-leveraged law-changing spoiler vote for freedom and categorically against coercion? Why not send a message on principles instead of paranoia and personalities?

Republican Election Fraud 1864

WE WUZ ROBBED!

Articles on same page of Hartford Weekly Times 19NOV1864 (link)

America was at war over the same tariff policies that brought her to the brink during the Nullification Crisis. The Morrill tariff enacted after Lincoln’s election was no less abominable and prompted Texas militias to seize federal armories. This second Tariff of Abominations was signed by President Buchanan on March 2, 1861, two days before Lincoln’s Inauguration. Did none of your “educators” mention this detail?

A similar bomb was planted on Herbert Hoover 58 years later. The “Increased Penalties Act” of 1929 demanded five years in prison and a fine equivalent to 14 pounds of gold for Beelzebub’s Beer and The Demon Rum. Its enforcement using the new Manifesto capitation tax wrecked the stock markets and fractional-reserve banking system and put an end to Republican Administrations for 20 years. (see book below)

But politics continued and Civil War Democrats split into Peace Democrats, who wanted to sue for peace, and War Democrats, who believed in fighting it out to enforce “the” laws, but not for the object of abolishing slavery. This faction also voted for McClellan. Both DEM factions supported McClellan, but “the” laws meant the Fugitive Slave law to one faction and the protective tariff to the other. Here is another snapshot of that election: 

WE WUZ ROBBED!

Same page as above, along with other letters…

There were two types of oaths, one was administered to voters. The other was the pauper’s oath–a formal declaration by a person that he is destitute and incapable of self-support. This was required in certain states to be eligible for public relief. Such an oath normally operated to deprive someone of the vote.

Today’s government school system harps on slavery, yet primly elides mention of the antebellum sexual abuse to which the women were subjected. Harriet Beecher Stowe dared bring this up–instead of mentioning the protective tariff. Similar strategy prevents today’s Kleptocracy historians from mentioning the causal connections between Prohibition and The Crash, but inducing ignorance in no way changes the facts. Orwell warned that lying about such things eventually backfires when the truth leaks out.(link)

Then, as now, both entrenched parties were soft machines in a kleptocracy dedicated to the initiation of force, rather than the defense of individual rights. Campaigns, as now, featured all the dignity and seemliness of two looters fighting over a bottle of gin snatched from a smashed liquor store window. A hand in the till and another confiscating your assets over plant leaves are high priorities to both doting factions. Both legacy looter parties want to continue “penetrating” weaker neighbors urging shoot-first repression of recreational plant leaf derivative markets. Nevermind that exporting prohibitionist policies PREVENTS those countries from developing functional economies. 

The other priority shared by both entrenched parties is meddlesome invasion and bombing of distant primitive villages in some sort of religious war designed to bring terrorist retaliation. The only leveraged way to clearly say NO to all these dishonest and murderous policies is to vote for libertarian candidates in November–especially State and County LP candidates. 

But let’s be fair. Listen to what our adversaries say about each other before you choose LIBertarian on the ballot.

Libertarian Party 20 years ago

We're still here, growing at 80% a year!

See the original newspaper (link)

The Southeast Missourian, July 3, 2000, page 5 of 56 = page 8A
Libertarians Nominate Browne for Second Run (AP) ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA – More than 1000 libertarians gathered at the party’s national convention on Sunday nominated Harry Browne, their 1996 candidate for president, to run again in 2000.
The 67-year-old investment banker from Nashville Tennessee acknowledged he has little chance of winning the presidency. He said he hoped his campaign would reinvigorate what was formerly the nation’s top third-party.


“We’re the only political party that’s offering to set you free,” Browne said. “It’s the most powerful political message in the world.”


Officials with the Libertarian party claims some 30,000 dues-paying members. It also identifies itself as the biggest third-party movement in the United States.
However, the party has lacked the star power of the Reform Party and the Green Party in recent years.
Browne finished fifth in 1996, behind Reform Party candidate Ross Perot, and Green Party candidate Ralph Nader, garnering less than 1% of the national vote.
He has proposed a program that would eliminate income taxes, Social Security, the war on drugs and federal welfare.
Competing against Browne were: Don Gorman of Deerfield New Hampshire, a former four-term New Hampshire state legislator; Barry Hess, a salesman from Phoenix Arizona; David Hollist, a charter bus driver from Alta Loma, California; and Jacob Hornberger, president of the future of freedom foundation, a think tank in Fairfax, Virginia.

The Two Minutes Hate

 

It was nearly eleven hundred, and in the Records Department, where Winston worked, they were dragging the chairs out of the cubicles and grouping them in the centre of the hall opposite the big telescreen, in preparation for the Two Minutes Hate.

Winston was just taking his place in one of the middle rows when someone he knew by sight, but had never spoken to, came unexpectedly into the room. It was a girl whom he often passed in the corridors. He did not know her name, but he knew that she worked in the Fiction Department. She was a bold-looking girl, of about twenty-seven, with straight hair, a tanned face, and swift, athletic movements. A narrow scarlet sash, emblem of the Junior Anti-Sex League, was wound several times round the waist of her overalls, just tightly enough to bring out the shapeliness of her hips.

Winston had disliked her from the very first moment of seeing her. He knew the reason. It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy. But this particular girl gave him the impression of being more dangerous than most. Once when they passed in the corridor she gave him a quick sidelong glance which seemed to pierce right into him and for a moment had filled him with black terror. The idea had even crossed his mind that she might be an agent of the Woke Police.

The next moment a hideous, grinding speech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room. It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck. The Hate had started.

As usual, the face of Donald Trump, the Enemy of the People, had flashed on to the screen. There were hisses here and there among the audience. The little sandy-haired woman gave a squeak of mingled fear and disgust. The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Trump was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor, the earliest defiler of the Party’s purity. All subsequent crimes against the Party, all treacheries, acts of sabotage, heresies, deviations, sprang directly out of his campaigning.

Winston’s diaphragm was constricted. He could never see the face of Trump without a painful mixture of emotions. Trump was delivering his usual venomous attack upon the doctrines of the Party–an attack so exaggerated and perverse that a child should have been able to see through it, and yet just plausible enough to fill one with an alarmed feeling that other people, less level-headed than oneself, might be taken in by it. He was abusing Big Biden, he was denouncing the dictatorship of the Party, he was demanding the withdrawal of protesters from Portland, he was advocating freedom of speech, freedom of the Press, freedom of assembly, license to invade, he was crying hysterically that America had been betrayed–and all this in slow monosyllabic speech which was a sort of parody of the habitual style of the orators of the Party.

Before the Hate had proceeded for thirty seconds, uncontrollable exclamations of rage were breaking out from half the people in the room. The self-satisfied bland face on the screen was too much to be borne: besides, the sight or even the thought of Trump produced fear and anger automatically. But what was strange was that although Trump was hated and despised by everybody, although every day and a thousand times a day, on platforms, on the telescreen, in newspapers, in books, his theories were refuted, smashed, ridiculed, held up to the general gaze for the pitiful rubbish that they were–in spite of all this, his influence never seemed to grow less. Always there were fresh dupes waiting to be seduced by him. A day never passed when racists with green teeth acting under his directions were not unmasked by the Woke Police. He was the commander of a vast shadowy army, an underground network of confederates dedicated to the overthrow of the State. White Supremacy, its name was supposed to be. There were also whispered stories of a terrible book, a compendium of all the heresies, of which Trump was the author and which circulated clandestinely here and there. It was a book without a title.

In its second minute the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening mocking voice that came from the screen. In a lucid moment Winston found that he was shouting with the others and kicking his heel violently against the rung of his chair. The dark-haired girl behind Winston had begun crying out ‘Racist! Racist! Racist!’ and suddenly she picked up a heavy Newspeak dictionary and flung it at the screen. The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge-hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic.

And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp. Thus, at one moment Winston’s hatred was not turned against Trump at all, but, on the contrary, against Big Biden, the Party, and the Woke Police; and at such moments his heart went out to the lonely, derided heretic on the screen, sole guardian of truth and sanity in a world of lies. And yet the very next instant he was at one with the people about him, and all that was said of Trump seemed to him to be true. At those moments his secret loathing of Big Biden changed into adoration, and Big Biden seemed to tower up, an invincible, fearless protector, standing like a rock against the plagues of Asia, and Trump, in spite of his isolation, his helplessness, and the doubt that hung about him, seemed like some sinister enchanter, capable by the mere power of his voice of wrecking the structure of civilization.

The Hate rose to its climax. But in the same moment, drawing a deep sigh of relief from everybody, the hostile figure melted into the face of Big Biden, white-haired, clean-shaven, full of power and mysterious calm, and so vast that it almost filled up the screen.(link)  Nobody heard what Big Biden was saying. It was merely a few words of encouragement, the sort of words that are uttered in the din of battle, not distinguishable individually but restoring confidence by the fact of being spoken. Then the face of Big Biden faded away again, and instead the three slogans of the Party stood out in bold capitals:

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE
FUND RED COMMUNITIES
KILL THE 1%

Nobody mentioned the young, educated candidate for the Libertarian Party,. Jo Jorgensen.  Jorgensen, however, was already an UNPERSON. She did not exist: she had never existed, and her party was now in its 49th year of non-existence. It’s vote share was now increasing 80% per year. Before long tripping would be decriminalized and conscription abolished forever.
