What caused the 16 Feb Crash?

Asset-Forfeiture Looting is not Free trade

Asset-forfeiture is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter.

Type S&P 500 and choose the 6 month index. By running the cursor along the peak of the curve you can tell when the slope of the curve turned negative. That date looks like 19FEB2020. CNN expelled a huge smokescreen on China’s Communo-Virus close to then, but CNN is not of a truthful persuasion. The corporation actually PAYS airports to display its screed on waiting area screens, and nobody had more interest in asset-forfeiture looting than Nixon-law subsidized media looters. So who is next on the list of usual suspects? Whose name appeared on the Flash Crashes of 2008, 2010 and 2015?(link)

Yes, I am talking about the Financial Action Task Force currently tasked with looking into corruption in not-really-communist China. And guess what… see those twin troughs just to the left of February 19? The high point just before the fall-where the slope goes from increasing to decreasing–coincides reasonably with issuance of a Swiss report on how Swiss banks have agreed to FATF-approved Knife Your Customer and similar policies. The report was released, I’d wager, on or about February 17, 2020, judging from the stock prices graph. The FATF is very careful to avoid exact dates unless there are no nearby stock gyrations.(link

FATF reports and such are reportedly released in Month, Year, and surrounded with a smokescreen of obfuscating acronyms. The MER on Switzerland was adopted in October 2016 and at the urging of AML/CFT advisors went through R.2 through R.21 with threshold gaps triggering due diligence requirement adjustments and execution of operations in cases of suspicion. Since the same Swiss whose papers debated U.S. newspapers about wholesaling heroin in February of 1929 are today deemed too naíve to write their own laws, the FATF hands elected representatives AMLAs to sign and pass, and scolding CDBs (a looter code of ethical robbery).(link)

FATF does admit that an OBA-FINMA became enforceable with guns on January 1, 2020, and for the ten-thousandth time dins its message that anyone who would rather not be robbed by tax collectors can only be so anti-social if actually practicing or at least abetting the financing of religious terrorists flying hijacked planes into tall buildings in New York.(link) Everywhere you look, logical disjunction is resorted to to deliver this point subliminally. Any declarative statement, even “two plus two makes four” is still true after some dishonest skunk tacks on a disjunction. Two plus two makes four or five is therefore as logically true a statement as it was before tacking on the cognitive mutilation and repeating it a million times–sad, but true.(link

See their pro-coercion brainwashing movie: Not a Victimless Crime

 

So a preference for keeping your own money means–in FATFspeak–you are morally the same as 1912 balkan Mohammedans or Christians kidnapping, raping and murdering each other, and selling the survivors to the highest bidder.(link) By their lights, this makes you OAD FCT according to the GBCF.(link

You can see how this goo, like the language in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1987-is contrivedly hard to follow or, once grasped, to explain to the innocent. Then again, if your pet policy is guaranteed to wreck the economy that pursues it, clarity is the enemy.

YES WE CAN SAY NO!

Country Joe and the Fish Intergalactic Fan Club

It’ll kick in soon, just you wait, it takes time…

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN YOU COULDN’T just say no to violent aggression. In the 1920s mystical fanatics sought to pressure and intimidate voters into having someone point guns at people over beer or plant leaf soakings. This immediately wrecked the economy until gentlemen’s agreements between producers and government agents took effect in early 1923.(link)

But increased penalties soon crashed the economy, and until 1931 there was no way to vote no on having people robbed and shot. If you voted Democratic, that was a vote for low tariffs, but also for debased currency and white supremacist racial collectivism. If you voted Republican, that was a vote for the gold standard, but also for shooting and robbing the peaceful, high excise and income taxes, and helping Germany spend money on armaments rather than pay reparations for damages wrought during The Great War. There were communist-socialist infiltrators and even native brainwashees, of course, offering more prohibition and tax laws and amendments, but nobody offering freedom from coercion.(link)

It was the Liberal Party platform of 1931 that tackled the Eighteenth Amendment head-on and demanded it be repealed along with the Volstead Act, Blue Laws and the ban on Sunday baseball games.(link) Liberals sought to make divorce safe and legal, and were absolutely opposed to Ku-Klux collectivism and Comstock laws. And guess what? There was a Gentleman’s Agreement.(link) Rather than run against those spoiler votes and lose to the Republicans, the Democrats copied the Liberal Party repeal plank into their own platform and won five consecutive presidential elections with nary a Crash nor added Depression wrecking the economy.(link)

So when next a Republican shrieks that Bernie is going to open gulags in North Dakota and Maine unless your vote helps God’s Own Prohibitionists ban contraceptives, shoot more teen-agers, wreck more economies in Latin America, export more fascism and bomb more ignorant wretches on the other side of the planet, remember that YES WE CAN SAY NO.(link)

Democrats no less agitated will grab your cuff with predictions that God’s Own Prohibitionists will grab pussy, ban birth control pills, appoint Klan judges, boil away the polar ice caps and bring yet another Asset-Forfeiture Crash and Depression as in 1929, 1987 and 2008–unless you help them ban electric generation plants, customs inspections, take-home pay and automobiles. Again, YES YOU CAN JUST SAY NO. How? (link)

We wrote the Roe v Wade decision!

A brief history of libertarian spoiler vote clout. Our 4.4 million presidential votes (equal to the State of Virginia) were only about a fifth of the LP votes captured in 2016.

BY VOTING LIBERTARIAN! 

The LP looks for ways to NOT point guns at people. Our non-aggression principle and platform is that simple. Libertarians understand that pointing guns at non-violent citizens is the gateway to massacres, gulags, Kristallnacht, Auschwitz, Treblinka, The Killing Fields, Ukraine famines, People’s Temple suicides, wars, racial strife, collectivist coercion, asset-forfeiture confiscations, Crashes and Great Depressions that lead to unemployment, taxation and more force-initiating laws.

HOCKEY STICK ANYONE?

This graph fits LP presidential votes to the logistic replacement curve that shows how cassettes and CDs replaced vinyl, how elections replaced monarchies.

No our candidates don’t often get elected and begin shouting out orders in the Senate. Instead our candidates make it possible for… YES, YOU to send a clout-packing spoiler-vote message to The Political State Just Saying No to force, intimidation, murder, robbery, parasitism, war, treachery, censorship, rights infringement, girl-bullying, pull-peddling, election rigging, subsidized vote corruption, graft, ugly gimme caps and exportation of destabilizing fascist policies.

Libertarian spoiler votes state this clearly, with no strings, and DEFEAT the more brutal of two looters running for that same office. Over a hundred of our candidates actually hold office, and that scares the crap living daylights out of looters of both wings of the communo-fascist persuasion. 

Suckers and cowards settle for one vote out of 129 million and end up with Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, drug wars, terrorist attacks, maimed veterans, high taxes, dead cops, dead kids, inflation, prohibitionism, Crashes and Depressions. Libertarians pull the slot machine handle on one vote out of 4 million, and get roughly 30 times the law-changing clout for that vote. It takes a special kind of stupid to miss that chance.

That realization is why our vote share–barring idiotic 5th column planks to wreck our platform–increases by about 80% per year right now. With this we bring you legalization, tax cuts, individual rights, peace, choice, freer markets, and the withering away of the initiation of harmful, deadly and coercive force. We replace that force with freedom from coercion, and we accomplish all this one vote at a time.

California v. Interpreters

I'm here to make idiots understand concepts

I’m here to deliver a clear and practical meaning.

The People’s State of California, lately a remake of Czechoslovakia under communism, has passed a law against independent freelance interpreters. The “American” Translators Association, ATA–in actuality an Association of Translation Agencies dominated by predators bent on what the California Democrats are ordering at gunpointis exactly the sort of pressure group that brings about these draconian attempts at naked coercion. But why coercion?

Mindless collectives such as People’s State Legislatures and Professional Agency associations float on an ocean of fascism (religious socialism) and communism (not-so-religious socialism). Like Middle Eastern fanatics, they cannot imagine anything BUT the organized initiation of force. The result is that California voters indoctrinated in government schools do not understand how Libertarian spoiler votes repeal bad laws.

Back before communist-organized mass starvation and christian socialist extermination camps revealed the true face of Altruria, fanatical altruist parties saddled America with an income tax and an amendment making beer a shoot-first felony.(link) Those prohibition and socialist parties twice changed the Constitution with force-law spoiler votes averaging about 2% of the national total. Instead of defending the individual rights of interpreters to offer our services by voluntary consent, look at how the ATA grovels in this boilerplate for the California Junta:

Translation and interpreting (T&I) has been called the world’s “second oldest profession.” The accuracy of that statement notwithstanding, it is certainly true that the translating and interpreting profession predates the “gig economy” by several thousand years. The current and effective business model of freelancers working through agencies to provide translation and interpreting services to the ultimate consumers of those services has been in place since at least the end of World War II.

The oldest profession is political whoring–appeals to rob or coerce Carlos to subsidize Maria and Juan. The lessons learned from Soviet and German National Socialism, Pol Pot, Ceausescu and the Right Reverend Jim Jones are as puzzling to the Latin American Junta mentality dominating the California legislature as they are to the governments of Cuba, Venezuela, Indonesia and the Philippine Islands. But where reason makes no impression, fear is the most convertible currency. Spoiler votes enable the little guy to step up to the plate for a little winning by intimidation to get rid of bad laws and lawmakers.(link)

Dokuro-chan, wielder of Spoiler Vote clout!

Libertarian Spoiler votes, increasing 80% per year since 2008

California votes Democratic not because only 1% of its population can write down the definition of energy, or convert Fahrenheit to Centigrade, but because they imagine the only alternative is book-burning Republicans eager to ban birth control, burn Beatles albums and shoot their kids over plant leaves. But the Libertarian party advocates none of those things, and offers full individual rights to women, hippies, brown people, translators & interpreters! Every spoiler vote invested in the Libertarian party goes to cover the gap between some devout Democratic looter and a fanatical Republican Sharia lawyer.(link) Making the worst bastard lose is how the Libertarian party has been changing the laws since 1972, shortly before our plank became the Roe v. Wade decision.(link)

Interpreters, write your California legislooters: 

Dear Comrade/Cumpai (name or handle), until such time as the AB 5 law forcing translators and interpreters to suck up to artificial persons or have their work permits torn up, I will be voting for Libertarian Party candidates. In fact, I’ll even send them a donation to help defeat Democratic and Republican communo-fascist fanatics alike. The libertarian party has been doing this since 1972, and look at how voters have reacted to our success in ridding them of your stye of parasitism:

Yours in Schadenfreude (look it up),

A. Libertarian Interpreter!

LP Platform sabotage

Knapp, Tokyo Rose, Vermin Supreme, Charles Manson?

Ask yourself if the above is the product of a sane and rational mind. (link)

In order to earn spoiler votes that pressure the kleptocracy into changing bad laws, we need a platform written by sane, rational people with some minimal education and a grasp of what is government, what it is good for, what rights are, what freedom is, and how to get people to vote for our candidates. We had just such a platform in 1972, and it promptly repealed Dixiecrat race suicide laws prohibiting birth control, and began the slow process of reversing prohibition laws.

Platformista for life?

Does your platform committee look like this?

Now let’s suppose I were to apply for the platform committee, then tell the people who paid dues, did volunteer work and contributed their money, that the U.S. Constitution (the shortest constitution out there)–the constitution candidates are expected to take an oath to uphold and defend–is irrelevant. Would you appreciate that?

Imagine a libertarian candidate–elected after a struggling campaign despite the 1971 Nixon Law that still subsidizes looter parties–standing on the inauguration dais and flipping off the assembled dignitaries by saying:

The federal Constitution is just some magical divine stains drawn on some parchment by politicians. Violating the U.S. Constitution is not an actual crime. 

Would you imagine that candidate had served your interest in democratically converging on a freer society? Ask yourself if someone like that would be exercising good stewardship over the money you donated to the Libertarian Party war chest in order to pay staff, fend off scurrilous pettifoggery and offer a sensible platform you and candidates can be proud of. I no longer donate to such an organization. Instead I seek out state LPs run by intelligent and honest people, and send donations directly to candidates I believe are doing a good job. Here is what I am trying to preserve:

How digital replaces vinyl, democracy replaces communism, monarchy

This is the Libertarian Party increasing its vote share by 80% per year! You want to sabotage that?

Meanwhile, I reiterate my request that every member of the current platform committee hand in their resignations. With friends like them, enemies are superfluous. If you doubt this, follow their endless email equivocations for just a little while.(link)

When a candidate asks for your vote, why not ask them what parts of the LP platform they think are advantageous or detrimental to our efforts to enforce individual rights and make government better? It’s a question David Nolan raised. It is the question Matt Welch from Reason Magazine failed to ask of an uninspiring collection of wannabee candidates.(link)

Restore the Libertarian Party

The speaker, Tarl Warwick, understands pretty clearly what is going wrong with the LP. He understands the definition of government as formulated in 1919 by Weber and accepted by objectivists and libertarians. A border is a necessary component of a government and outlined in the Constitution candidates swear to uphold. Furthermore, the Red republican/communist exploit for hacking in their Manifesto Plank 2 as the 16th Amendment was the protective tariff. They promised the income tax would replace it!

There is nothing wrong with the constitutional revenue-only tariff that tax-and-spend Republicans sneeringly referred to as “free trade.” A 10% tariff taxes powerful corporations, not disarmed individuals. We need to repeal the individual income tax and let collectivist corporations fend for themselves. Ask yourself when was the last time some publicly-traded corporation got your back?

Texas: no Kristalnacht gun laws!

LP national convention, Austin Texas, this May!

Tarl is way more libertarian than any of the moon-eyed useful idiots, angry anarchist infiltrators and overt agents provocateurs the looters have boosted onto our platform committee. Read our 1972 platform, the one that repealed Dixiecrat abortion bans when it was copy-pasted into Roe v. Wade (argued by Austin, Texas lady lawyers–LINK) Compare and the recently-injected sabotage planks leap out at you, just as they leap out and alienate intelligent voters.

Deserting a Scuttled Ship!

Libertarian party Brain Drain! Sabotage planks added since 2016 repel donor-members

The LP is the only thing that can reverse the damage brought on by looter pressure brought to bear on the kleptocracy through small collectivist party spoiler votes. Letting a bunch of losers, liars, skunks and political lepers wipe it out would be a terrible waste of resources and opportunity.  We need objectivist volunteers and women who value individual rights to help set matters straight. “Former” communists cross dressing in Antifa and bomb-throwing anarchist drag have their own CPUSA, Econazi and Dem parties.

Peace out.

LP Agents Provocateurs

Mobilization for violence

Comrades, to the Deed! (read original)

Austin, Texas, 1980, a couple of agents provocateurs infiltrated the Libertarian Party with the message that “we” needed to surrender to the Soviet Union or risk being attacked and (defeat, slavery, nuclear winter, climate change, Armageddon, doom of Humanity… you-name-it) One of our Libertarian Candidates for City Council, Fred Ebner, remarked that any effort to imagine what an agent provocateur  would look like always brought young Jeffery the Jihadist to mind.

Before Cold War intrigues gave way to today’s attempts by Republican and Mohammedan religious fanatics to entangle the U.S. in their Crusades, Jihads and Inquisitions, everyone–even Texans, knew the meaning of “provocateur.” Nowadays government schools do a good job of training youth to gun down each other and faculty, but not so good a job teaching political economy and history.

The clipping above is a 1909 article from when Republicans and Democrats were murdering Filipinos, while Socialists were blowing up stuff and shooting people in Europe. Here’s what it says:

THE SECRET SPY SYSTEM IN RUSSIA–Probably no more remarkable statement ever was made by a parliamentary body by a government minister than that made by Minister Stolypin in the Russian Douma recently. the statement related to the Russian police spy Eugene Azeff. A few months ago a socialist named Bourtseff fraternizing with the international Socialists at Paris made an exposure of Azeff’s machinations in the Paris newspapers and succeeded in bringing the case before the revolutionary tribunal in Paris, but before it could take any action Azeff fled and is supposed to be now in Russia. The substance of Bourtseff’s charge was that Azeff had been for years acting as an “agent provocateur” of the Russian police. An Agent Provocateur is a secret spy who incites his comrades to deeds of violence and then betrays them into the hands of the authorities. This is the very worst form of the professional detective business…  (The Evening News 08MAR1909  p4)

The point here is that there is such a thing, and in the rough-and-tumble of politics, provocateurs and infiltrators have been around for a long, long time. Here’s a more recent example:

Ayesha and Mohammed, sittin' in a tree

Attention LP Shoppers! (link) (reaction) (endorsements)

In 1972 the preferred approach was still to infiltrate the LP with “former” communist, SDS and Youth International Party soi disant converts and cause voters to associate with libertarians that odor of skunk so familiar to Texas chicken ranchers. This sufficed to cause Ayn Rand to endorse Richard wage-and-price-controls Nixon over the LP’s Hospers-Nathan ticket. To appease the soon-burgeoning Freeze & Surrender movement were added planks proposing to make child molesting not just legal, but mandatory!(link) This was seized on by the NAMBLA Guy at TIA, to hoots of delight from the Republican National Committee, CPUSA and the DNC. The suicidal plank was finally whittled down and papered over with instructions to read the stub as something else, NOT pedophilia. Here’s the vote share result:

Pro-choice, pro-U.S. Constitution results

Eliminate suicide planks & antichoice candidates, and LP replaces looter parties.

Today the anarchist infiltrator tactic is to get our platform to say we want to encourage uninspected entry by Saracen berserkers, infected cattle, lazy parasites, illiterate malcontents, brainwashed communists and fascists fleeing their own economic collapse and seeking a less decayed welfare State. This they label “free trade”[!] To preserve the communist income tax they direct opprobium at a revenue tariff instead.(link) Already dues-paying members and regular donation providers are turning away from what was once a thriving party with a vote share increasing at 80% per year.

Swim away from sinking hulk

Popularity of parasite, terrorist importation plank: LIBERTEXIT

As soon as the Libertarian Party falls off of the logistical sigmoid replacement curve that models how old, obsolete, decrepit products like religious monarchy, violent mercantilism, communist dictatorships, vinyl records, wood, coal and whale oil are replaced by democracy, laissez-faire agorism, free elections, electronic media, nuclear energy and natural gas, you’ll know the reason.

LP Platform Committee felony endorsement

With friends like these...

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.

With friends like these...

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.

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.

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.

Dividing Private Property

Franco, caudillo de Dios, Mussolini, Lateran treaties

Fascism is socialism cut with christian altruism. All socialists are fascists today in that none seek to nationalize everything

The four squares on the Nolan Chart are the result of grasping the fact that altruist ideologues seek to destroy freedom by attacking individual rights with a meat cleaver.  Two 2-position switches yield four possible combinations or states for two light bulbs. Looters are horrified at the naked way this representation depicts their darling coercion, so their standard reaction is to claim that clarity is oversimplification and there are no either-or choices in real life.

Not for dim bulbs!

Is this difficult?

Such facile dismissal prompted a rebuttal by replacing the flip switches with dimmer switches. This carries the analogy out to more decimal places without giving up the basic conceptual information either version of the model allows you to visualize. So why four possibilities instead of a flip switch and a single light bulb? or just a horizontal line?

If you start with the premise that life is valuable, therefore aggression is wrong, a bar magnet suffices as illustrative visual aid. Objectivists (link) and libertarians flock like iron filings to the pole labeled Voluntary while altruists (fascists, communists, anarchists, socialists) gather at the end labeled Coercive. Agorists see Voluntary as Right, but altruists regard that pole as Wrong after rejecting the life premise.

Undecided voters with neutralized minds or values are imagined to clump near the center of the horizontal line (hence the centrist label). Christians and Mohammedans view the magnet differently. They flock to the Church pole, and imagine themselves squared off against sinners assembled at the Saloon end.

The Nolan Chart was not designed to delight ethical purists nor attract iron filings, but to illustrate to voters the advantages of consistency. Religious conservatives din voters’ ears with horrible prophesies of Race Suicide (in order to rob pregnant women of individual rights). Contrariwise, socialist orators predict appalling Starvation if a rich speculator is allowed to corner the market on food or energy. So the second axis was added to help voters visualize where inconsistency leads.

Even a concept as simple as Private Property can be attacked by lunatics. Officious mystical conservatives will attach to “Private” evidence of a shameful conspiracy to violate a sex taboo, or to experiment with plant leaves. Their socialist comrades single out “Property” as the baaad word, since it is what likens them to thieves. The truth is that such imbeciles are allowed to vote, so the Nolan Chart accommodates the fact by listing the outcome of unprincipled people armed with the suffrage voting the way altruist zealots urge them to vote.

If there were no coercive zealots urging use of ballots to crush economic freedom, scientific inquiry or consensual adulthood, there would be no need for a Nolan chart. A simple line from Good through Muddled to Bad would suffice. Ignoring muddled fools, however, is the formula for failure in politics. Soviet communism and christian National Socialism are examples of failure in politics–you want more?
