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?

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)

Race Suicide Ideology

Ban Contraceptives, Malthusian Armageddon!

Forced labor popularized

From the sinking hulk of the Prohibition Party a contingent of race suicide fanatics have since 1972 swum over to the Republicans. It is clear enough that their more theatrical and deadly manifestations followed the Supreme Court adoption of the LP birth control plank shortly after the 1972 election.(link) But where do these racial collectivist ideas come from?

One source is U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt who in 1902 wrote a scolding letter to Maria Van Horst on “what is fundamentally infinitely more important than any other question in this country—that is, the question of race suicide, complete or partial.”(link) Teddy also explained how criminal it is to want to live one’s own life, unbothered with “strong racial qualities”:

But the man or woman who deliberately avoids marriage, and has a heart so cold as to know no passion and a brain so shallow and selfish as to dislike having children, is in effect a criminal against the race, and should be an object of contemptuous abhorrence by all healthy people.

How fanatical T.R. was on this subject can be gleaned from another such letter penned while reading Jean Finot, whom T.R. deems an expert on La Mort des Races.(link) This 1907 letter is an attempt to get a book publisher to block such writings, on grounds that

…it is a simple mathematical proposition that, where the average family that has children at all has only three, the race at once diminishes in numbers, and if the tendency is not checked will vanish completely, — in other words, there will be race suicide.

Seven years later the Pope of Rome was alarmed, as is clear enough from the clipping above. Other famous Christians also got on the bandwagon. Heinrich Himmler was another such influential ideologue pushing christian altruism. His published 1938 speech on the subject of homosexuality and its long-term implications for society and reproduction rates states:

I would like to develop a couple of ideas for you on the question of homosexuality. There are those homosexuals who take the view: what I do is my business, a purely private matter. However, all things which take place in the sexual sphere are not the private affair of the individual, but signify the life and death of the nation, signify world power or ‘swissification’. The people which has many children has the candidature for world power and world domination. A people of good race which has too few children has a one-way ticket to the grave, for insignificance in fifty or a hundred years, for burial in two hundred and fifty years …(link)

Race suicide eugenics may not be the only impulse driving the superstitious and altruistic to meddle at gunpoint in women’s reproductive decisions, but it is clearly one of the more important factors.

Many Words and Many Lies

You are getting sleepy...

The vertical axis shows the number of words (blue line). The US Constitution is 7583 words

The U.S. Constitution is the shortest on the American continents. All of the people’s states, caudillo juntas and banana republics have constitutions up to ten times as wordy as the U.S. Constitution. People face danger and expense in order to flee those countries and try to enter These United States, not each other’s countries. Is this coincidence? Is the number of words or pages in a country’s Constitution a negative indicator for individual freedom and prosperity? Continue reading

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.

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)

Libertarian view of Impeachment

While Reason magazine struggles to platform foreigners eager to import the entire population of Pakistan and the banana republics via uninspected entry, Tarl Warwick is not troubled by the wall or inspection. Neither am I. I never vote for communist or fascist kleptocrats now that I have the option of voting against coercion and aggression as policy, in exchange for more than 20 times the law-changing clout. (link)

The guy is wise beyond his years, educated, speaks well and thinks on his feet. Here is someone who lives in the real world as opposed to the looter parties’ Altruria or Fourth Reich. Check it out.

Here is the lowdown on why not one LP vote is ever wasted, and they ALL repeal bad laws.(link)

Voting against Violence

Pew Research: Crime rates have fallen…

Here’s how violence in America changed as the Libertarian party’s share of the vote more than tripled. Not a single one of these spoiler votes was wasted. Nor were they impotent “protest” votes of the sort bled off by the Tea-talitarian or Communist parties. In fact, the collapse of totalitarian socialism in Europe cut off a major source of inspiration and funding for infiltrating intellectuals of the looter persuasion operating in These United States. Libertarian spoiler votes are the most effective way for individuals to induce Kleptocracy political parties to give up cruel and violent laws. The leverage advantage is enormous for every libertarian vote, especially with a hockey stick substitution curve growth rate.  

Fisher-Pry sigmoid logistic replacement curve

LP entering the steep part of the Replacement Curve.

The shedding of anti-choice infiltrators and provocateurs whose sole occupation was to enrage and alienate voters with asinine shibboleths also wiped away excuses for sabotaging the LP. Republicans clearly see from the decline of superstition, the machine-gunning of antichoice dictator Ceausescu and wife, the recognition of women’s individual rights here, in Canada, The Netherlands, England–even in Italy and Ireland (link)–guarantee that Comstockism will lose them elections, not net them graft, boodle, power and pelf. They and the Dems must choose between copying libertarian planks and joining the Federalist, Whig, Communist and American Independent parties in the dustbin. (link)

Yet many libertarians sit still while communist anarchist infiltrators volunteer to swell the LNC, spit on voters and wreck our platform. EXAME magazine is a leading voice of Brazilian National Socialism. Its publishers and writers sweat and struggle to keep the LP as illegal in Brazil as it is in China and Cuba. Guess whose face they published (in a photo labeled Gary Johnson) as representative of the Libertarian Party in the last election? Coincidence? or was that bad apple hand-picked to make the LP look bad in the largest country in South America. (The magazine was soon afterward restrained by court order, then sold off by the publishers).

These are not novel tactics. The Republican party seduced the ku-klux Klan into its own serried ranks as Tammany’s catholic candidate Al Smith threatened to repeal national prohibition in 1928. After the American Liberal Party handed FDR the key to repeal and presidency for life, God’s Own Prohibitionists found sympathy with the German Christian and National Socialist parties Hoover had strengthened with his Standstill Agreement.(link) The attack on Pearl Harbor made pressing that strategy as suicidal as demanding a régime of Econaziism to stop imaginary global warming, or Comstockism to curry favor with “warriors for the babies.” But joining the war made These States take part in an alliance with the Soviet dictatorship that had divvied Poland with the Nazis. We have been a house divided ever since.
