Second Amendment Nuclear Weapons

Since the dawn of collectivism humankind has engaged in biological, chemical and conventional warfare. The bloodiest wars have always been between collectives that believed almost the same thing. Union versus Confederacy, Christians v. Jews, Protestants v. Catholics, Mohammedans v. Christians, Communists v. National Socialists… these mystical hatreds underlie the deadliest wars of recent millennia. These international wars are all gone now.

Chemical weapons were gasped at in 1916 because they made young men appreciate the 13th Amendment–the one that outlawed involuntary servitude. American conscripts were ordered to shoulder clumsy arms and march into louse-ridden foreign trenches to save the Federal Reserve banks from war loan defaults after Russian communists quit the opium war. The war stopped efforts to use the Hague to curb heroin dumping, so it was a war to make Bayer Great Again–at least in Germany. American youths faced with the prospect of being sprayed like cockroaches in those foreign trenches might prefer imprisonment in support of the 13th Amendment. That’s the Amendment where the Supreme Court “could not see” the military draft as coercive, but COULD cancel the First Amendment right to hand out copies of Amendments from the Bill of Rights. Being blown to bits in distant trenches to protect the French opium regie in Vietnam or morphine acetylizing plants in Marseilles or Scotland was different from being gassed. High explosives were ‘murrican! Artillery shells were okay to politicians on the Republican and Democrat sides of the aisle. Poison gas, however, was baaad. Germs and nukes are also baaad, perhaps because they might muss the hair of the politicians and lobbyists who order attacks. That kind of hair-mussing is “mass destruction.” 

So it was that things muddled along until a nuclear physicist named Sam Cohen worked out ways to make small H-bombs allocate less energy to explosive force and more energy to the production of neutrons. Sam found that neutrons could penetrate an incoming warhead and cause a premature chain reaction to melt an incoming bomb. Neutron-induced chemical reactions in the lensed explosive jacket could likewise be counted on to damage those enemy bombs. Sam Cohen briefed then-candidate Ronald Reagan on this class of weapons and how they might be deployed.

To Soviet military planners this was really bad news. Fighter pilots could not be trusted with enough fuel to cross borders. A Soviet pilot with plenty of fuel could defect and exchange the plane for a good reception from immigration authorities. Bombers and submarines presented that same vexing problem, plus the possibility their crews might nuke the Politburo or Soviet military installations instead of their intended victims.

Intercontinental ballistic missiles were naturally the communist weapon of choice. Fire them off and relax, with no chance of human meddling–until Ronald Reagan as President realized that Sam Cohen’s neutron bombs could cook those incoming ballistic warheads on their simple and predictable paths. Stinger missiles were doing pretty much that to Soviet helicopters in Afghanistan. To Soviet partisans, a way had to be found to stop America’s militias from keeping and bearing arms that could intercept and ruin incoming nuclear missiles.

The Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty was the first such attempt, signed by Quaker Prohibitionist President Richard Nixon. Nixon was promptly ousted, but Soviet Socialists pushed Strategic Arms Limitation talks for a SALT treaty to really disarm These Sovereign United States. Debates in Physics Today were, in 1982, discussions of the virtues of preemptive surrender to communist regimes. That changed in 1986, with the possibility that any such treaty might infringe the right of the people to keep and bear arms. That right to bear arms is in the Second Amendment, in the Bill of Rights–a thing that makes These States different from all the ancien régimes of Europe and Asia and their colonies in Africa and Latin America.

What happened next changed the Cold War. Stay tuned…

Orwell and no Libertarian Party

There are ominous parallels between “The Last Man in Europe” (published as “1984”) and “Homage to Catalonia,” which recounted Orwell’s struggles as a militiaman in the Marxist Unification Workers’ Party militia fighting christian fascism (El caudillo de Dios) in Spain. Back before there was any such thing as an aggression-rejecting Libertarian Party, intellectuals had to side with either International or National Socialism. There was no way out of that universe-of-discourse dilemma. Writer Henry Miller was one of the rare famous libertarians rejecting the entire false dichotomy, to Orwell’s shock and dismay. Ayn Rand’s “We the Living and “Anthem” and were published in 1936 and 1938, but Orwell managed to ignore her somehow.

Richard Gere look-alike

Henry Miller

Orwell contrasts Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer with a book by Louis-Ferdinand Céline, which was a “protest against the horror and meaninglessness of modern life–actually, indeed, of LIFE.” But Miller’s book “is the book of a man who is happy.” In 1936 Miller “felt no interest in the Spanish war whatever. He merely told me [Orwell] in forcible terms that to go to Spain at that moment was the act of an idiot.”

So what is fascism? Trotsky’s pamphlet offers nothing resembling a definition. Orwell, faced with the same question, likewise produced no definition. Instead, Orwell in 1944 also spouted gibberish to justify evading an objective definition certain to enrage religious fanatics:

“To say why would take too long, but basically it is because it is impossible to define Fascism satisfactorily without making admissions which neither the Fascists themselves, nor the Conservatives, nor Socialists of any colour, are willing to make.” –Orwell, What is Fascism? 1944

Yet the closer one looks at German National Socialism and Spanish, Vichy & Italian fascism, the more their definition converges on simplicity itself:

Fascism, (n.) Religious socialism.

Mussolini signed a treaty with the Pope to bring religious indoctrination into government school classrooms. Franco’s own posters described him as el “Caudillo de Dios,” saluted by the kiddies, and Adolf Hitler–painter of churches, Jesus and Madonnas–passed up no opportunity to exploit Christian altruism as a vehicle for demonizing “selfishness,” meaning all things Jewish and/or laissez-faire (meaning liberal).

Death to godless commies!

God’s Own Dictator!

During the Spanish revolution, Orwell reported, a sign of anti-religious “leftist” sentiment was the chiseling of religious symbols off of gravestones at the local graveyard. Yet Orwell shied from openly mentioning religiosity as the crucial difference in the late thirties or early forties.

By the 1970s, fans of Robert Heinlein and Ayn Rand were forming the Libertarian Party as an alternative to linear, anti-life ideologies so popular among Europeans. The first Libertarian platform included a plank the Supreme Court copied as its Roe v Wade decision striking down ku klux Comstock laws. Soon politics changed from a one-dementional line to a two-dimensional plane representing the four states available where there are two separate binary switches.

To those who, like King Solomon, recognize freedom from coercion as an indivisible whole, there is no real left or right. Both labels are the result of an assumption that freedom can safely be divided by having the right people commit just enough violence to make things better, provided their motives are altruistic. Whether such credulity is prompted by fear or hatred is irrelevant, for wherever it exists a skilled bipartisan persuader can convince both kinds of altruists that they AND their adversaries are both right, and then increase how much violent coercion is “just enough.”

This has happened in Germany, Austria, Italy, Rumania, Russia and its satellites, Japan, China, Burma, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela and Ecuador, all mohammedan countries and most African nations at one time or another. All of them started by assuming freedom could be “cut” with just the right amount of coercive aggression, then increased that amount until totalitarian rule became established. Observe that ALL totalitarians criticize as “anarchic” anything that offers more freedom than their armed goons have orders to tolerate. The best hedge against the abyss of totalitarianism is a functioning Libertarian Party.

Why mystical conservatives hate liberals

"Crime is increasing."

“Steadily building a new race–“

To organizers of the Liberal Party of America, the situation in 1930 was intolerable: 

Hypocrisy is in the saddle. Mercenary religion is throttling the nation’s life. Paid preachers, quartered in magnificent offices, and working for large salaries, are stifling the life of the people. Some of them are laughing in derision when the poor and the weak are convicted and sent to prison. Some of them are advocating the poisoning of alcohol, so that those who are tempted may die—the sooner the wretches are out of the way, say they, the better for Prohibition. And the Sunday laws—these mercenary preachers are spying around corners to trap the unwary and to fill the jails. –1930 Platform

Condoms and diaphragms were as illegal as light beer in Prohibitionist Amerika. Indeed, such things were banned in Communist Rumania as late as 1966, and still illegal in Catholic Ireland in 1992! Comstock laws and Prohibitionist Blue Laws made a crime of baseball, movies, many kinds of work and all manner of purchases on Sundays. The Liberal Party directly challenged the Klan, the Lord’s Day Alliance and Women’s Christian Temperance Union, and sought to restore freedom and individual rights. One of its organizers remarked:

How shall this great aim be accomplished? Not by the Republican Party, of which I have been a member all my life, sitting as a delegate in one of its National Conventions and speaking in every one of its campaigns from McKinley to Hoover. … Not by the Democratic Party, for that Party, equally high in its ideals, equally illustrious in its history, is at this moment notable for its bigotry and intolerance. In Congress, where many men in both Houses who voted for the infamous Jones Law are known to be drinkers and the constant patrons of bootleggers, there is a bill pending and possibly soon to be enacted which will fine and imprison every man who takes a drink.

The Jones Law in question, also known as the 5 & 10 law, made light beer a five-year felony and imposed a fine equivalent to fifteen pounds of solid gold just hours before Herbert Hoover was sworn in to enforce it. That fine comes to over $307,000 at current gold prices. Still, men with guns could waylay a lad barely 18 and slap him in prison till age 22, burdened with debt equivalent to two 30-year mortgages, yet with nothing to show for it but seething resentment and loss of voting and Second Amendment rights. Such “felons” and their repentant parents were the voters the Liberal Party attracted.

The potential of those spoiler votes led the Democrats to abandon the Klan and declare for repeal of the Prohibition Amendment in 1932. The economy–though still burdened with the Communist income tax–began a slow recovery and the Democrats occupied the Executive Branch for the next five presidential terms. The Dems of that era also defeated the National Socialist Christian government of Germany, with its eugenic campaign of racial extermination carried on in the name of mystical altruism. The Nationalsocialist government was also organized, as in Hoover’s Inaugural Address, for purposes of “steadily building a new race.”

The defense of individual rights is today carried on by the Libertarian Party by a passing of the torch of liberty. With 4 million votes covering the spoiler vote gap in 11 states, the LP has lately swung a total of 124 electoral votes. That’s nine times the number of electoral votes the entire State of Virginia controls with its 4 million individual votes. Here’s the LP hockey stick in a sigmoid logistic substitution curve fit for LP votes beginning with the Y2k election.

Religious fanatics encouraged to initiate force...

Libertarian Party vote share since the fascists beat the socialists in Y2k

Not bad for a party that is just now as old as President John F. Kennedy, eh? Join the Three Percent! Give your vote nine, 21 or 10,000 times the law-changing clout. Be your own spoiler vote lobbyist and frighten the crap out of those looters in Congress and their codgers on the Supreme Court. You’ll never regret winning by repealing bad laws!

Legalize Peyote, LP.org

Peyote was banned by H.R. 13645 legislation was passed by the U.S. 70th Congressional session and enacted into law by 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, on Saturday, January 19, 1929.

For fuller context on those trying times, Coolidge signed the Jones Five and Ten law the day before Herbert Hoover was sworn in. This law made light beer a federal felony.  That meant as many as five years in the penitentiary and a $10,000 fine, an amount that would buy 15 pounds of gold worth $297,000 at today’s prices.  A week before the law passed, Representative Emanuel Celler [Dem. NY] sarcastically offered to “satisfy the fanatical cruelty of the professional prohibitionists, who are apparently drunk with power,” and offered to propose that violators should be punished by “hanging, the body to be cut down while still alive, and the accused, to be disemboweled, his head cut off and his body quartered.” (Chicago Tribune  2/23/29 6) Here’s what resulted (besides the collapse of the economy):

Nixon, also a Quaker, made this worse...

This does not include people on State chain gangs or held in foreign dictatorships

The Libertarian Party has since 1972 demanded the repeal of victimless crime laws prohibiting peyote, mescalin, psilocybin, LSD, birth control pills and other relatively harmless (compared to beer) drugs. Your vote can frighten looter party politicians whose paychecks hang in the balance between legalization and continued cruel robbery. Every spoiler vote for the libertarian party carries on average the law-changing clout of 21 votes wasted on the nearly identical kleptocracy parties. This is because what kleptocracy parties care about is getting their gang on the payroll with a snout in the trough. As long as sending your kids to prison gets them votes, they will keep sending your kids to prison. Remember attorneys fees and bail bonds when you see LIB on the ballot!

The Libertarian Party just won nearly 4 million votes–way more than the 3 million the Democrats claim to have “won” by in 2016. The changed the outcome of 127 electoral vote counts in 13 states. There we got more than the difference between the winning and losing looter politicians. Those politicians remember this and will change their platforms and many laws before the next general election.

Voters remember that thousands are rotting in prison or living in fear–stripped of rights–because of cruel bipartisan prohibition laws. You must choose whether to betray these innocents branded as criminals into continued suffering or to make known you want America to be free. Losing is what happens when cowards endorse the two prohibitionist soft machines instead of loudly and unequivocally casting a multiply-leveraged vote for individual rights and freedom. Repealing bad laws, THAT’s winning!

All anarchists are communists

When one first discovers the Libertarian Party, the biggest surprise is the swarm of anarchists buzzing about the organization. These worthies rarely join and pay dues, to say nothing of making campaign contributions. The overall impression they produce is much the same as that of a swarm of flies–which is precisely the intended effect! 

Not that there is anything new about anarchism. One quickly gets a sense of just how flyblown the theory is by searching the Google News Archive for specimens. Here’s one from 1894–the year a small communist party got 9% of the U.S. vote and cowed Congress into tacking Manifesto Plank 2 onto a tariff bill. An aggressor fired a pistol at Italian Premier Crispi, missed twice and was overpowered by his intended victim. A few days later another anarchist social revolutionary shot and killed French president Carnot. 

Observe that neither anarchist raised a pistol on the field of honor; both instead ambushed unarmed victims. Crispi’s wannabee assassin, captured by his intended victim, begged for the death sentence. Hanging was deemed too good for him. Carnot’s murderer was decapitated–not without irony–using a good, old-fashioned, Red Terror guillotine. Garfield was shot in the back by a similar political parasite and McKinley’s anarchist murderer carried with him a dog-eared copy of Edward Bellamy’s “Looking Backward” translated into Polish.

The general rule in these cases is that a sort of Transubstantiation occurs as the bullet leaves the barrel, such that the communist aggressor suddenly always was an anarchist. George Orwell illustrated the phenomenon, describing the way communists and nationalsocialists began French-kissing before the ink was dry on the Hitler-Stalin pact. In his novel Nineteen Eighty-four he again stressed how the faithful believed that “Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia.” This is the method of inference that concludes that anarchists “are really” libertarians. 

Americans educated in the free market system weren’t susceptible to doublethink. Garfield and McKinley’s assassins were promptly tried and hanged on the tried-and-true theory that dead anarchist madmen did little additional harm. Congress showed showed how little sympathy there was for the anarchist push to decriminalize murder when it passed the Anarchist Exclusion Act in 1903. The Libertarian platform of 2016 contained equivalent language against importing “foreign nationals who pose a credible threat” until hostile (Republican? Anarchist?) infiltrators struck it out.  

The idea that an ideology of murdering madmen is compatible with the Libertarian Party is a 2+2=5 equivocation. Membership requires signing the Non-Aggression Principle penned by Ayn Rand in 1947, while hangmen were still busy cutting down murdering altruist National Socialist madmen at Nuremberg and other venues. In 1947 everyone recalled clearly that competition in the forcible restraint of men is War.  The Libertarian Party is concerned with freedom and peace. Any argument that our platform is compatible with murder-legalizing anarchism is a division-by-zero error. Yet in Peru and Chile today there are anarchist communists blatantly posing as “libertarian” parties. 

     


Libertarian candidates seek a constitutional government empowered to enforce laws protecting individual rights from theft, fraud and aggression. This is what anarchists are AGAINST or there would be nothing for them to criticize in the LP platform.  What we regard as the rule of law they see as obstructions interfering in the labor of murderers and highwaymen. The fact that most parties corrupt government power to put into practice the ethics of parasitism is all the more reason to distance ourselves from the anarchist branch of that same philosophy.

With friends like anarchists, freedom needs no enemies.

Libertarian platform word cloud

Word clouds are popular in the sound-byte blogosphere. After all, nobody who hasn’t read all 70,000-odd words of both looter kleptocracy platforms has a clue what those parties want. On the telescreen one sees only blurbs. The difference is like comparing a commercial selling a health insurance policy and the actual text of that same written policy. Here’s the Libertarian platform word cloud. 

The Libertarian Party platform is typically seven pages long and takes a half-hour to read or listen to. That’s twice the size of the Declaration of Independence. Still, apathy runs deep, so word clouds can provide more the injudicious more info about two parties than, say, political cartoons. At least word clouds are based on what the parties actually propose in writing. Free–as opposed to coerced–is visible, and there is clearly concern for freedom, liberty, individual rights. Peace is also there, as you’d expect from a party that is against aggression and seeks to legalize non-violence.

For comparison here is the word cloud for the lengthy platform published by Richard Nixon’s party.

The Republican platform is of course wordier and repeats must, will and state a lot. Public, by which they mean government, is there, along with support, which to them usually involves men with service pistols. Women are there, but mainly as targets for the service pistols. Amendment is something the Republicans have asked for ever since the Supreme Court used the first Libertarian platform as a draft for freeing women from forced labor. But I do not see it. The Amendment they want would reimpose the forced labor and put doctors in jail along with hippies, latinos, blacks and as many foreigners as can be arrested.

Here is the cloud for Bernie Sanders’ Democratic party. For some reason it came out bluish–in the Yellow Submarine sense of the word. This is my first time to use this software so I have no explanation.

The Dems are clearly into making you believe stuff, but I detect no global warming or carbon dioxide. They make it  clear you MUST work to support their health-insurance-at-gunpoint policies. Women are also here–as a pressure group for handouts rather than as free individuals or moving targets. At any rate, here you may compare image blurbs of platforms for the three leading parties–two old and shriveling and one young and growing.

Here’s hoping you will vote for your own freedom rather than to destroy someone else’s. By voting for freedom you are casting a leveraged lure that will cause looter politicians to repeal bad laws–kind of like the Invisible Hand that makes nations wealthy, and different from the Unproductive Hands that weaken and impoverish nations like so many parasites, weeds or bacteria.

The Antichoice, then and now…

Romanian Communist Dictator via unanimous single-party “election”, tried and executed December 25th 1989:

NICOLAE CEAUȘESCU: I repeat: I am the president of Romania and the commander in chief of the Romanian army. I am the president of the people. I will not speak with you provocateurs anymore, and I will not speak with the organizers of the putsch and with the mercenaries. I have nothing to do with them.

Republican U.S. President, via campaign subsidized by Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law of 1971, quoted August 2018:

“I view it as an illegal investigation…There should never have been a special counsel.” —Trump on Mueller inquiry

Both politicians suppressed individual rights, especially of women, but were deified by fanatical cliques.
