Brazilian echoes Christian National Socialism

Auguste Compte flag design

Note the AMEN replacing the Compte slogan

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

Christian National Socialist Censorship

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

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?

Pascal’s Wager v. Freedom

Nobody can know anything

Are facts unknowable before death?

There was a time when politicians called attention to their party’s platform, predicting that its planks would benefit undecided voters. The obverse strategy, now in vogue, claims that the opposition candidate’s secret plans are an existential threat to the life and liberty of the voter being gulled, and to the future of all life on earth. Only the looter demanding your vote pretends to know anything. In its epistemology, the premise is that you cannot know the facts–not until AFTER you’re dead–so there is no point in trying. Instead, you should play it safe, obey, believe what the persuader is telling you.(link) Since the other premise is that you’ll be dead before you could possibly notice it’s a lie, as the conundrum is set up, you can only lose by disobeying the instruction to sacrifice knowledge and settle instead for belief.

screw the Bill of Rights!

No ABM! Freeze and Surrender!

This was the argument against the Second Amendment during the Cold War, and it persuaded Richard Nixon and his Republicans to betray the Bill of Rights. If Tricky were right, he’d be no worse off than Quisling or Petain.(link) If wrong, the communists assured him all life on Earth would end and it wouldn’t be their fault–all they ever do is initiate the use of force–just like Republicans. It was a slow-motion replay of the Molotov-Ribbendtop pact, but with America, not Poland, in the victim’s hood.

A similar gambit nowadays is the “argument” persuading 12-year-olds against generation of electric power, or persons innocent of mathematical sophistry against voting for candidates running on the Libertarian Party platform. Conservatism on both the fascist and communist sides seeks to keep the same decrepit parties in power, and crush new ones in the cradle lest their spoiler votes repeal tax laws.(link

13th Amendment Superhero

Energy Slaves, not Human Slaves!

Energy nihilists reject the R Bucky Fuller notion of energy as our working servant, and will settle for nothing less than a reversion to actual human slavery. Asking for evidence, of course, merely identifies you as an apostate, infidel, denier–precisely at this delicate juncture that is the tipping-point beyond which “Abandon All Hope” prevails.(link) This is unless you repent and believe that “Arbeit Macht Frei” and vote some looter ticket. Nevermind that its congregants do not know the definition of energy and are unsullied by any grasp of its dimensions or units of measure.(link) People who are against energy invariably favor coercion as the approach to problem-solving.

Nolan's wager

Vote for what you value, and that vote will help make it happen–with added interest!

Political nihilists are baffled by consistency. Your one vote in 133 million does nothing to change an election outcome–unless you leverage that vote by casting it for the Libertarian ticket. Then when a prohibitionist bigot loses by a smaller margin than the LP vote slice, a message is received. That candidate suddenly realizes that girl-bullying or ordering cops to shoot kids just cost an entire series of government paychecks.

Conversely, when libertarian spoiler votes cause some nonreligious totalitarian to lose to someone not in favor of higher taxes and collectivized rights charged to others at gunpoint, that message is not soon forgotten.(link) Losing, to activists in both looter parties, means not getting hired. To libertarians, winning is changing bad laws.(link)

All you have to do is vote honestly for legal policies you prefer and, if these are libertarian, your vote packs something like 20 times the law-changing clout. The Pascal’s Wager bluff did not make you surrender and fold your hand, but call and compare the strength or your convictions with fake kleptocracy premises, thereby raising the stakes by adding your own values to the table. This is a win-win approach to getting rid of bad laws.(link)

Sarajevo: anarchy is war

A 2014 movie Das Attentat, americanized in translation as Sarajevo, tells a fictionalized version of the routine murder of a government big-shot by youthful dupes enthralled with communist anarchism. Why routine? Hardly a week went by without some collectivist or other trying to murder a mercantilist, politician or royalty.  The German-language movie on Netflix and Youtube seeks to convince the viewer that The Accursed Hun plotted and paid for the assassination for the payoff in railroad stocks for a rail line through Serbia/Servia.

Omitted from mention were the two time bombs hidden under the table at which the Archduke and Duchess Sophia were to have lunch–had not an anarchist bomb and gunshots intervened. Bombs in the chimney at another nearby eatery were also left out, along with the seven being smuggled by a woman in the neighborhood.(link) But the entire region had seen nothing but violence for the past four years.

Political violence was unremarkable for the opium-farming region of Bosnia at the time, and socialists and mercantilists routinely killed each other. But the important detail was that the Chinese revolt of 1911 had blocked dumping of morphine there. This meant that unshipped opium grown in the Balkans and refined in Austro-Hungary, Germany, Prussia, France, Italy and Holland began to accumulate in a heroin and morphine glut. The Balkan States promptly attacked their competitor, Turkey, then flew at each other’s throats with 240,000 killed amid looting, rapine, arson, starvation, disease, mutilation and religious genocide until August 10, 1913.

NOT Mrs Winslow's Soothing Morphine syrup

Glut: cheap morphine was a commodity additive

Another unmentioned detail was the Hague Opium Convention. This had been building since 1909 in a U.S.-led effort to stop the dumping of morphine in China and other Asian and African nations formalized . The Final Protocol of the Third International Opium Conference was signed at the Hague June 25, 1914 by former U.S. Minister to China, former Philippine commissioner and then-current Consul General at Vienna, Austria, Mr. Charles Denby, and also by M.A.A. de Jongh, former inspector general, head of the opium monopoly in the Dutch Indies (at the time also a major source of cocaine).

WWI to save the German Heroin Industry

Read the original document (Link)

This June signing began the ninth inning of years of signature-gathering.  At a series of meetings beginning June 15, Conference attendees resolved that the Convention would come into force between all the signatory powers as soon as existing signatory powers and enough others had ratified it. Enforcement was expected to begin by December 31st, 1914. Instead, the Austrian Archduke and consort were assassinated three days after the preliminary signings, on June 28th, 1914.

Opium producers and refiners were thus saved by the bell when “former” anarchist Gabrinovic and his buddies carried out the assassinations.  Sir Edward Gray proposed a convention on problems in the Balkans, and on Black Saturday, July 25, all European securities markets crashed. Three days later President Woodrow Wilson decreed that under the newly-enacted income tax, returns filed by corporations would be public records open to inspection by State revenue agents of States with an income tax. U.S. stock markets immediately crashed and were shut down. They did not reopen for a long time because Austria also chose that very day to attack Serbia/Servia.

Word War I is also on the list of reasons voters are not attracted by anarchists. It is among the myriad reasons adding anarcho- to libertarian or capitalist (a 1972 smear tactic) does nothing but convince voters we are a band of bomb-hurling communists, just like every other anarchist that has ever made the news in any language.

Equal and Apposite Reaction

Don't act surprised

Someone has to have the courage; girl-bulliers beware!

Before the pill, on the eve of the Panic of 1873, Comstock laws gave one zealous fanatic the power to stop American women from having access to any and all birth control drugs, devices, literature, calendars or even motherly advice to a daughter–by robbing their property and putting them on a chain gang for ten years. (link) These and fanatical blue laws became less popular after the Liberal Party repeal plank tossed Herbert Hoover out of office, repealed the 18th Amendment.(link) A 20th Amendment was immediately added to stop defeated partisan zealots from wrecking the economy before leaving DC.(link)

Condoms were legalized stateside only after they were found to have been issued to German solders–but not for contraception, and in 1938 a sort of diaphragm could finally be sold without fear of felony indictment. After that, basically nothing changed outside of Russia. Pregnancies could be terminated there from 1920 until 1936, when Christian National Socialism sprayed itself across Europe and the Americas.

Moratorium on Brains, outcome

The guy Prez Hoover helped to power

By 1955 women had again regained as few rights as anyone else in the USSR.(link) Then came The Pill, and the second derivative of the global population growth curve changed sign. This movement away from Malthusian disaster brought shrieks of hatred from ku-klux race-suicide mystics who went on a Comstockian rampage. Agitation by American women to again press for the 1923 Equal Rights Amendment was reinforced by the 1972 Libertarian Party Plank.(link)

We support an end to all subsidies for childbearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children. We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days. We shall oppose all coercive measures to control population growth.

The plank was folded into Roe v Wade by the Supreme Court shortly after the votes were counted. Women suddenly had some reproductive rights.(link) The Prohibition Party and its sheepskin, the Republican Party, in 1976 began concerted screaming for constitutional amendments to send men with guns to coerce pregnant women and their physicians. As you’d expect, subsidized religious fanatics began a campaign of stalking, intimidation, threats, arson and other violence that spread as far as New Zealand.(link)

This sort of gratuitous aggression quickly drew pushback as Patti Hearst defected from socialite to socialist circles carrying automatic rifles. Two separate female assassins targeted unelected Nixon replacement Gerald Ford in September of 1975, and girl-bullying became a riskier proposition. Religious Army of God jihadists, with no regard for even their own lives escalated the violence.(link) The papers were soon full of firebombing arsonists attacking clinics, shooting receptionists, bystanders and unarmed doctors in the back, bushwhacking them through the windows of their homes, and other such acts of Jesus-like heroism.(link)

George Holy War Bush didn’t help by attacking Ottoman trouble spots while calling for the death penalty for plant leaves, amendments to ban burning cloth and to bully girls. Soon Americans were attacked by mohammedan fanatics every bit as berserk as nativist Warriors for the Babies. These latter, perhaps out of admiration, began putting fake anthrax spores in threat mail. After Bush Jr’s prohibitionist brigandage wrecked the economy in 2008, faith-based mental illness, amplified by racial resentment against Obama’s party, ramped up.

Now, with God’s Trump displaying consummate skill in pleasing the yokels with race-suicide hobgoblins, religious terror is again on the march. Communist and socialist agitators gleefully exploit the resultant fear to enlist women voters in stocking Congress with parasitical looters. Since the Nixon subsidy law of 1971, voters for entrenched major parties can ONLY choose between hate candidates pushing religious fascism versus communist socialism.(link)

So where is the Libertarian Party while the fair sex is under siege? With Stephanie Slade turning Reason Magazine into a minor offshoot of L’Osservatore Romano, female readership is down to one in ten, and the magazine’s Commentariat is entirely overrun with Warriors for the Babies and Army of God Trumpistas–so no help there.(link) But what about the Libertarian Party of Roe v Wade fame? Since 2012, Libertarians–cowed by Peter Schwartz sycophants,(link) Tea Party infiltrators, the Army of God and the usual ku-kluxers appalled at Obama–have adopted a birth control straddle plank to bolster GOP televangelism and throw women’s rights under the bus.

Send Washington a Martyr

LP Platform Death Penalty Vigilante?

Out of evident sympathy for clinic bombers, doctor-killers and cop-killers such as Pro-Life poster boy Robert Dear–not to mention faith-based government funding for OBRIA, the LP has also modified its once-successful migration plank to now invite mohammedan and papist zealots to invade These States by uninspected entry–then added a plank to free terrorists and physician-killers from the death sentence while assigning executions to vigilantes and junta-style death squads. From the 2018 “Libertarian” platform:

1.8 Death Penalty

We oppose the administration of the death penalty by the state.

Just in case Reason magazine and Fox News didn’t let you in on it, Robert Dear was just indicted on 68 counts by a federal grand jury and faces a well-deserved death penalty.(link)

Why Anarchists Infiltrate

If legalized murder and anarchism were my goal I would work against the Libertarian Party by removing 1972 choice planks and replacing them with invitations for anarchists and religious fanatics to again institutionalize extrajudicial killings–as occurred everywhere before WWI, and in These States from 1920 to 1933 under National Prohibition. Recent changes to the platform amount to exactly such an invitation.(link)

Spend some time with anarchists who pose as libertarians and one thing becomes clear. Defense of individual rights by objectively-defined laws is what anarchists do NOT want. Instead of Milton Friedman or Ayn Rand–whom they promptly turned against us, beginning in 1973 these miscreants follow a boring economist with a German accent and Hitler mustache and press NOW for rule by vigilante lynch mobs. They meanwhile alienate voters by loudly calling themselves “libertarians.”(link) Continue reading
