Suckering the Helpless

In These States, Altruist Germany and Czarist Russia there was a 97% consensus that the deadly force wielded by the Political State was precisely the thing to bring Succor to the Helpless.

The idea apparently originated about a century and a half into the Common Era. Stories were recorded of a Prophet who 150 years earlier brought cadavers back to the pink of health and ordered apostles to Give unto Caesar. That same prophet preached altruism in simultaneous translation into Glossolalian while multiplying bread and fishes as a sort of fiat currency for huge masses of worshipping admireres. Succoring the miserable with free stuff was the idea, and the loaves and fishes were evidently pirate copies of the originals. This cloning of free stuff (if that is the proper translation of what those primitive languages claimed had occurred nearly two centuries earlier) crashed and burned in collision with conservation of mass, energy, and momentum, principles of thermodynamics and selfish ideas about the value of ownlife rather than sacrifice for others.

The dilemma was resolved 18 centuries later in Russia and Germany along altruistic principles established by the likes of Marx, Kant and Luther as reinterpreted by Edward Bellamy and Jack London for export and retranslation back into German and Russian. Everybody suffered, and millions starved except the altruists whose bidding the men with guns obeyed. The Russian version discarded the Prophet of God part which German deontological dogma zealously preserved. Huge chemical companies provided the explosives required for the initiation of force and refined the patented poppy drugs sold to foreigners as a source of revenue.  Empires grew fat and their subjects literally worshipped the politicians, bishops and field-marshals.

If necessary at the sacrifice of our own lives

The Common Good Before The Individual Good

In America the mystical mythos was weaker and reverence for the Almighty Dollar much stronger. Mining company lobbyists convinced politicians to convert their gold and silver into coins and force distant consumers to pay the cost via tariff revenue. By the time inconvenient supply and demand considerations revealed how dumb an idea this had been, the mining corporations could buy and sell politicians like potatoes. These corporatepreneurs found among the disciples of Bellamy, Kant and Marx the useful voters they needed to keep that money faucet open. A weaker version of the European myth did the same thing: tax the helpless to pay brutes to tax them all the harder, with as many mock trials and executions as needed to overcome resistance. The biggest difference was that American piety and guilt over extermination of natives led to a prohibitionist reaction which contrasted with Germany’s exploitation of primitives, residents and foreigners with chemical drugs.

When these two systems came into conflict, intelligent persons fled in the direction of least coercion and nuclear weapons ended the war. Now would be a good time to ask ourselves whether ancient myths, dogma, charisma, mixed-economy entanglements and charisma are too sandy a foundation for a civilization that is free and not at war. The alternative, the relatively new experiment of individual rights, has been more successful than the European habits that have kept Europe and Asia in constant bloodbaths over the course of nineteen centuries. Yet the entrenched political parties that propose to write and enforce laws still think in terms of the wonderfulness of ancient dogma rather than the demonstrated value of individual rights. Suckering the helpless with free stuff taken from others by force may no longer be worth the risks. Leaving individuals free to help themselves has produced better results than the approaches that relied on initiation of force by men with guns.

Libertarian hockey stick

A little money riding on the Maple Leafs

Speak Softly, and carry a Hockey Stick! Special thanks to Online Curve Fitting

Organized coercion is fond of graphs that indicate growing popularity of a pretext for forcing folks. The hockey stick analogy is by now so overused as to have become an embarrassment to pseudoscientists of the looter persuasion–mainly because it has made no impression whatsoever on thermometers. 

Voters, on the other hand, are deciding–in accelerating numbers–that the initiation of force has had its opportunity to produce results worth having. Entrenched, subsidized Kleptocracy parties are stalled. Unable to attract voters, they successfully depict each other as repellent, dangerous, socially evil. Both such parties depict the Communist Manifesto income tax and the subsidies their electioneering receives from the IRS as necessary and good.

The Libertarian party, as you see, has been growing as in the graph showing the vote shares earned since the Y2k panic and New Millerite Climate Armageddon prophesying craze set in. Based on the last 5 elections, the above amateur sigmoid replacement curve fit suggests a Libertarian majority by 2074. Leveraged spoiler vote clout will meanwhile repeal and pacify much of the violence of law you see whenever the initiation of force is the preferred modus operandi.

No violence needed, and we don’ need no steenkin revolution. Simply cast your vote for the peace and freedom platform and opportunistic politicians will make change happen or be replaced trying to keep pushing aggression and coercion. A small donation couldn’t hurt, and will definitely bear dividends. Increasing freedom is winning!

Libertarian Impersonator False Flag

Laura Ebke?

“Elected” Libertarians?

 

The Anti-Choice movement, coercive by definition, has since 1976 been attempting to infiltrate the Libertarian Party in a belated effort to defeat the Roe v. Wade decision which the Supreme Court copied from the 1972 Libertarian Party Overpopulation plank.

1972 LP plank: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”
Jan 22 1973, Roe v. Wade decision: “(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician. …”

In the intervening 11 campaigns Prohibitionist Republicans have tried to reinstate coathanger abortions and lost five times, mainly thanks to leftover Soviet anti-energy planks still in the Democratic platform. Since the Bush Asset Forfeiture Crash and Depression, a wave of prohibition repeal not seen since 1932 sweeps the nation, and God’s Own Prohibitionists have come up with a desperate Trojan Horse strategy: Inject an antichoice state legislator into the LP as a faithless defector bearing a package deal of gifts which includes guns pointed at Planned Parenthood physicians. Sound farfetched?

In 1992 a reasonably pro-rights Republican Senator, Arlen “Magic Bullet” Specter, was running for reelection. All of a sudden a coercive male zealot, John Perry, posing as a libertarian, got into the race thanks to dereliction on the part of the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party. The slip is particularly embarrassing since Philadelphia is the cradle of the Liberal Party. That party’s prohibition repeal plank was co-opted by the Democrats in 1932, a move that resulted in Democratic victories in five consecutive elections. Like The Atlantic magazine, the LP showed the male impostor the door. This is ordinary integrity–loyalty to one’s ethical principles.

The cross-dressing Libertarian impersonator elected by Republican votes is Sen. Laura Ebke of Nebraska’s 32nd district. The Greek gifts she bears are deregulation of bribe-dominated professions and partial clemency for persons branded felons by the Kleptocracy for associating with some plant leaves. Ebke’s cold deck is an offer to hand back a tiny portion of the individual rights previously sequestered by God’s Own Prohibitionists, in exchange for Libertarian acceptance of a planted impostor whom Nebraska Libertarians voted against. Here’s the Ram Johnston gunpoint coercion position, complete with misleading label:

Let me state unequivocally my personal positionI am Pro-Life. –Laura Ebke

The set-up has already brought panhandling spam from the LP in support of this Republican bait-and-switch trap. What remains to be seen is whether this particular sting, doubtless patterned after a John Grisham novel (Runaway Jury), will lure innocent Libertarian voters into betraying the individual rights won for women when Toni Nathan and John Hospers placed our platform before the voters and conquered individual rights for women.

One expects the Wall Street Journal to come shilling for Republican infiltrators. But this particular fake libertarian switcheroo has been convincing enough to take in LP fund-raisers and Reason Magazine. Their error, which the predators exploit, is to imagine that we need sitting politicians rather than libertarian spoiler votes in order to strike down bad laws. This red herring bait serves only to reinforce reliance on people, rather than the principles voters expect the party do defend with focussed integrity.

People of Nebraska, don’t fall for it. It’s a set-up! Swap your votes for leveraged Libertarian support in other districts if you can, but do not fall for this desperate false flag maneuver! The Republican/Prohibition Axis of Evil is gulling you to increase its lopsided control over your State by switching in a double for an additional 2%.

If you ever need translations of con games, loaded dice, shapes, misspots, cold decks, marked cards, long cons, rigged roulette wheels, shiners, false cuts, daubing, crimping, holdouts, peeking, palming, middle-card deals, stacking, waving, belly-strippers, pictures, luminous readers and other sharper and grifter hustles, drop me a line.

Six million pro-choice votes in 2016

The Libertarian Party had to choose in 2016 between a recycled Republican convert to some individual rights, an Anti-choice, Pro-coathanger infiltrator and a wealthy roué noob who had evidently only heard of the LP six months earlier. The party recycled Gary Johnson–stripped of his pandering promise to try to overturn the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision enforcing individual rights for everyone–even pregnant women. Recognizing that women have individual rights (instead of trying to coerce them) multiplied this mediocre candidate’s vote total by 328% compared to 2012.

Point of inflection survives mystical pushback

LP, pill, save the planet from population disaster

Any attempt to inject anti-choice fanatics onto Libertarian Party candidate offerings can safely be interpreted as sabotage intended to cost the LP 2/3 of the votes we earned. Expect the Republican party to invest a lot of cash and effort in that. Such pandering reverses huge gains from the 1972 election in which the LP plank literally put a stop to coercing pregnant women and doctors in These States and Canada. By making the Libertarian plank on birth control the lead paragraph in its Roe v. Wade decision the Supreme Court recognized the importance of individual rights, helped avert global Malthusian disaster and made the LP a change agent that cannot be ignored.

The Democratic Party, painfully aware that the LP beat them to the repeal plank just as the Liberal party did in 1931, has tried to exploit women’s rights as transfer payments from producers to women as a way of grafting Soviet or Chinese socialism onto the issue. But suppose there are women out there who want to be free, NOT kept, bought or bribed? NARAL is betting there aren’t any, and doesn’t want women to know how Libertarian Candidate Toni Nathan smacked nine old men upside the head with the repeal plank and helped make Canada a Sanctuary Country for ladies. So, how many women want to sacrifice their rights in order to ban electric power?

Only China can have energy

Communist Party USA = Dems on energy

NARAL has become a totalitarian socialist lobby with an agenda indistinguishable from CPUSA. The Democratic party is in the coils of the same anaconda. A self-respecting independent woman has nowhere to turn but the Libertarian Party if she wants individual rights enforced. Suicidal Dems, Greens and Socialists are the ones that helped God’s Own Prohibitionists win political offices.

Christianofascism kills

See original anti-life criminals

Just as the Dems copy communist planks, the Gee-Oh-Pee copies Comstock Law and Prohibition Party planks to again strip women of rights (including physicians’ right to life). Remember the Amendment to make Pregnancy Termination Illegal? The one the Prohibition party published in its 1976 plank after Roe v. Wade? The GOP has quietly copied that into every platform up to and including the 2016 campaign. Libertarians are meanwhile promising to follow Canada’s example of no government guns pointed at pregnant women or their physicians. Are rights worth giving up to save Chinese communism? I’m voting libertarian and I’m not even female!

Spotting Fake Libertarians

LP spoiler vote Clout Party!

Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan

The Libertarian Party is the only political party in These United States that is growing.

Mathematician needed for curve-fitting in substitution model

We need a least-squares fit to the Fisher-Pry equation

It is also the only party in the world NOT dedicated to the initiation of force. Naturally, procurers for looter parties hang around libertarian venues seeking to lure away voters and undermine the LP platform.

Republican trolls and infiltrators, invariably mystical fascists ashamed of their confederates’ past misdeeds, are fond of prophesying in the future tense as a way of palling up to and retasking libertarian voters. These right-wing zealots avoid discussion of how spoiler votes changed the Comstock laws they seek to preserve, and how prohibitionist asset forfeiture and confiscations cause liquidity crises and depressions. Here are some of the fabrications, red herrings, false prophesy and snow jobs they peddle in their zeal for prohibition laws.

“No true Scotsman” will doom the libertarian party to always being an outsider. (But outsiders cast spoiler votes which change laws)

No hope for libertarian political success until the culture changes first. (But repealing bad laws is success)

Betteridge’s law of headlines says the LP will fail. Duverger’s Law says the LP must inevitably fail. (Such pseudoscience makes bad laws)

The problem is that the Libertarian Party has zero interest in actually winning an elective office. (But to non-parasites, winning is repealing bad laws)

We repealed Comstock Laws in Roe v Wade

Spoiler votes are Bludgeoning Angels!

Democratic party procurers, basically the socialist laity, are also strangers-with-candy for clueless-but-impressionable youngsters. Dems lost by almost 3 million votes. Libertarians got over 4 million votes! Why? Youngsters are what the Dem platform says to jail because of plant leaves. Shadenfreude’s too good for them. Their cant also evades mention of how spoiler votes in the past changed the laws to suit their econazi altruism-with-government-guns agenda.

Look at the graph: the LP does not want an Amendment to force women to reproduce at gunpoint!

The Drumpf presidency is such an emergency that “we” can’t currently afford the luxury of protest votes.

(Hahaha!)

The looter parasites the Democratic party chooses as politicians are still programmed by Soviet brainwashing to oppose anything that might help These States defeat International Socialism in a shooting war with nuclear weapons unholstered. Their snouts went into the trough because Bush Dynasty faith-based asset-forfeiture prohibitionism again wrecked the economy in 2007 as in 1929-33, 1987-92 and people schooled in how financial markets work understood that nothing could be worse than another coathanger-worshipping mystical Republican looter.

But Green spoiler votes (in reality Ralph Nader personality votes) frightened the Dems into promising to do everything to ban electric power plants just as they promised simpletons who don’t know any better that they would pass Kristallnacht laws banning guns in the presence of the Bill of Rights. Every democrat who lost lost because of this obsolete Soviet brainwashing meme having acquired momentum of its own in both the US and NATO nations.

Look at the graph: the LP does not want to ban electric power.

Canadian Liberals and American Libertarians

mystical whack job

Libertarian Candidate 2018?

Will the Libertarian Party sacrifice integrity to superstition? 

1968 — Nixon elected, Mi Lai massacre, GOP declares war on plant leaves, entheogens, segregationist American Party advocates War on Plant Leaves, gets 35 electoral votes. No US party published a Comstock law plank to ban or censor birth control that year.

1968 — Prohibition party platform: No greater mistake has ever been made by the American people and their government than the Repeal of Prohibition. (This is the party that controls the GOP as of 1928.)

1969 — Canadian abortion activist Dr. Henry Morgentaler defies the law and opens an abortion clinic in Montreal.

1970 — Morgentaler clinic is raided and physician is charged with several offences. The Gestapo had 27 years earlier arrested Morgentaler for internment in its death camp eugenics program to cleanse humanity of Jewish selfishness and make the World safe for Positive Christianity.

1971 — American Libertarian Party formed by David Nolan, adopts the Non-Aggression Principle. This principle was formulated by Ayn Rand in 1947, as National Socialist eugenics proponents were being hanged at Nuremberg and elsewhere. Richard Nixon signs amendment to IRS Code making transfer payment subsidies via the income tax to entrenched Kleptocracy parties for electioneering in media.

1972 — Pro-choice, pro-defense, Libertarian Party candidates John Hospers and Toni Nathan earn one electoral vote from a state in which barred from the ballot.

1973 — Republican Supreme Court copies and pastes the 1972 Libertarian Party pregnancy plank into its Roe v. Wade decision using the 14th Amendment to secure individual rights for most pregnant women.

1974 — Morgentaler acquitted on abortion charges by Quebec jury, later overturned by Quebec Court of Appeal.

1976 — Prohibition party platform adds plank: We support a Constitutional Amendment to protect the unborn by prohibiting abortion except in those very rare cases where the life of the mother is seriously endangered.

1976 — Canadian Justice Minister orders retrial. Morgentaler acquitted by jury again in September. Newly elected Parti Quebecóis drops all charges.

1976 — Republican party platform copies from Prohibition Party the plank demanding a Prohibition Amendment to force pregnant women to reproduce by coercing physicians at gunpoint.

1980 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment.

1984 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment.

1988 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Declares “All persons born…” in 14th Amendment really means “All ova fertilized…” Supreme Court of Canada strikes down all laws restricting that individual right of women.  Goodthinkful Republican party politicians struggle to evade this decision as thoughtcrime.

1992 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Seeks Mussolini-precedent Lateran Treaty powers to force children in government schools to recite prayers.

1996 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Declares its support for Religious Mercantilism by calling it [get this!] “free-market Capitalism,” promises 5th Amendment protection against Asset-Forfeiture looting (except where prohibitionism enters the picture).

2000 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Demands formation of Junior Anti-Sex League and additional laws to coerce pubescent teens. 2001, George Bush Jr. signs Executive Order subsidizing infiltration of federal government by faith-based mystical organizations, as in the Mohammedan countries.

2004 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Expands demands to export prohibition of individual rights of women (and everyone else) to UN, advocates interference in international organizations to pressure them into coercing physicians who provide healthcare to women. Asset-forfeiture prohibitionism ramps up to wholesale armed robbery by men with government guns.

2008 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Demands protection by mock trial (not international law) of troops ordered to bomb civilians in Mohammedan countries. Economy collapses under weight of prohibitionist asset-forfeiture looting.

2012 — Recycled republican candidate Gary Johnson promises to try to overturn Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision. Gets 3 million fewer votes than he got after dropping that dumb idea.

2016 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment by retasking 5th Amendment to coerce physicians instead of ban asset-forfeiture looting. Libertarian party infiltrated by Republican prohibitionists, platform edited to add faith-based straddle plank. Rights-violating republican infiltrator nearly nominated by LP. Democratic party platform seeks to make electricity as abundant and affordable in Continental United States as in Puerto Rico.  </history>

2018 — ??
Scenario 1: Mystical prohibitionist Republicans take over LP
the way the Prohibition Party assimilated the GOP in 1928, and the People’s Party swallowed the Democrats in 1896–to back a Prohibition Amendment declaring women are not “persons born” and assert that the 5th Amendment legalizes asset forfeiture looting.
Scenario 2 — Libertarian Party maintains its integrity, sheds good-faith-based imprecations and defends the individual rights of all women, as in Canada. LP advocates a constitutional amendment protecting the freedom of production and trade, replaces GOP like Whigs replaced Federalists and were themselves mowed down by Red Republicans in 1860.

The Supreme Court tried backing Prohibitionist superstition in 1920, but when that brought about a depression worse than the one from the 1894 income tax (for which the Prohibition Party incorrectly claims credit), the Court learned. The 1973 US Supreme Court decision has since assured women all over the planet that they are individuals with rights. Christian National Socialists and Mohammedan Sharia Law fanatics object to any kind of individual rights–especially if applicable to women, blacks, latinos… So what? Superstition is dwindling and has few spoiler votes to cast. Libertarians have four million spoiler votes. Our vote share looks like this measured hockey stick graph:

Superstition from 1928 on the other hand…

Which will it be? Robert Heinlein, Ayn Rand, H.L. Mencken, David Nolan, John Hospers, Toni Nathan? or the Klan, Prohibition Party, Anthony Comstock, Herbert Hoover, Joe McCarthy, Harry Anslinger, Dick Nixon and the Bush Dynasty? Free minds and free markets or Republican Blue laws, Democrat Kristallnacht laws and Mohammedan Sharia law?

If you need laws and court decisions translated, why not get a bid from a libertarian translator?

Asset Forfeiture Panic of 1873

Here is the text of the Comstock law.
March 3, 1873, 42nd Congress, page 1873, amending the already harsh and lengthy postal monopoly law of June 1872, which allowed Comstock himself to meddle in the mail service….

CHAP. CCLVIII—An Act for the Suppression of Trade in and Circulation of, obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral use. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That whoever within the District of Columbia or any of the Territories of the United States, or other place within the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States, shall sell, or lend, or give away, or in any manner to exhibit, or shall offer to sell or to lend, or to in any manner exhibit or shall in any way publish or offer to publish in any manner, or shall have in his possession, for any such purpose or purposes, any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing or other representation, figure or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article of an immoral nature, or any drug or medicine, or any article whatever for the prevention of conception, or for causing unlawful abortion, or shall advertize the same for sale, or shall write or print, or cause to be written or printed, any card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement, or notice of any kind, stating when, where, how, or of whom, or by what means, any of the articles in this section hereinbefore mentioned, can be purchased or obtained, or shall manufacture, draw, or print, or in any wise make any of such articles, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof in any court of the United States, or in any Territory or place within the exclusive jurisdiction within the United States, where such misdemeanor shall have been committed; and on conviction thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor in the penitentiary for not less than six months nor more than five years for each offense, or fined not less than $100 nor more than $2000, with costs of court.

Mystical prohibitionism with guns

Previous Draconian law meddling in international communications

SEC 2. That section one hundred and forty eight of the act to revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to the Post-office Department, approved June eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, be amended to read as follows:
“Sec. 148. That no obscene, lewd, or lascivious book, pamphlet, picture, paper, print, or other publication of an indecent character, or any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring abortion, or any article or thing intended or adapted for any indecent or immoral use or nature, or any written or printed card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement or notice of any kind giving information, directly or indirectly, where, how, of whom, or by what means either of the things before mentioned may be obtained or made, nor any letter upon the envelope of which, or postal-card upon which indecent or scurrilous epithets may be written or printed, shall be carried in the mail, and any person who shall knowingly deposit, or cause to be deposited, for mailing or delivery, any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, or any notice or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, or any notice, or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, and any person who, in pursuance of any plan or scheme for disposing of any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things shall take, or cause to be taken, from the mail or any such letter or package, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall, for every offense, be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not less than one year nor more than ten years, or both, in the discretion of the judge.”

[$5000 would in 1873 buy 221 oz of gold, today worth over $295,000]

SEC. 3. That all persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, except the drugs hereinbefore-mentioned when imported in bulk, and not put up for any of the purposes before mentioned; and all such prohibited articles in the course of importation shall be detained by the officer of customs, and proceedings taken against the same under section five of this act.

[asset forfeiture provision]

SEC. 4. That whoever, being an officer, agent, or employee of the government of the United States shall knowingly aid or abet any person engaged in the violation of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction thereof, shall for every offense be punished as provided in section two of this act.

SEC 5. That any judge of any district or circuit court of the United States within the proper district, before whom complaint in writing of any violation of this act shall be made, to the satisfaction of such judge, and founded on knowledge or belief, and, if upon belief, setting forth the grounds of such belief, and supported by oath or affirmation by the complainant, may issue, conformably to the Constitution, a warrant, directing him to search for, seize and take possession of any such article or thing hereinbefore mentioned, and to make due and immediate return thereof, to the end that same may be condemned and destroyed by proceedings, which shall be conducted in the same manner as other proceedings in case of
municipal seizure, and with the same right of appeal or writ of error: Provided, That nothing in this section shall be construed as repealing the one hundred and forty-eighth section of the act of which this act is amendatory, or to affect any indictments heretofore found for offenses against the same, but the said indictments may be prosecuted to judgment as if this section had not been enacted. APPROVED March 3, 1873.

Observe that here was a law inviting faith-based zealots to forcibly meddle in and make seizures against trade, production, healthcare, speech, writing, advertisement, seeing, reading, and even mailing a letter or postcard! Sure enough, BLAM! By the sheerest of coincidence (to GOP and Democratic Party eyes), the destruction of freedom engineered by the 1872 Postal Monopoly law morphing into the Comstock laws at federal and state levels immediately preceded the Panic of 1873 and a ghastly depression! The Kleptocracy spares no effort in coming up with alternative causation scenarios.

This sort of error was repeated in 1907 and  1927, was loudly publicized in 1929 and silently enforced in 1932, 1987 and 2007. Flash crash repetitions occurred in May of 2010 and March of 2015. Yet economist-impersonators lecturing at subsidized schools direct attention away from these sorts of correlations and the inductive temptation they entail. Some stock market investor or corner-seeking clique is instead singled out for blame, as in Farenheit 451.

The idea of fanatical Altrurian looters or faith-based zealots turning the police into a lynch mob capable of collapsing the economy is not allowed inside of government schools. Since learning from experience is discouraged by collectivist trompe d’oeil in History, to preclude repetition of such crashes and depressions, an Atlas Shrugged Amendment would serve just as nicely. The free trade amendment would make a nice cornerstone to the Libertarian Party Platform:

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade.

The LP already appropriated the Non-Aggression principle as set forth by Ayn Rand in 1947–while minions of Hitler’s Socialist Altruria were stretching ropes at Nuremberg. That principle has served us well. The Republican Party has for decades copied the 1976 Prohibition Party platform plank urging a Constitutional Amendment, Why? To overturn the Roe v. Wade decision copied from the 1972 Libertarian platform. Republicans appropriated the Prohibition Party plank demanding physicians be constitutionally coerced in order that women shall not possess individual rights.
