Google bias experiment

Try this experiment. We know for a fact that coercion (socialism, fascism) is losing power and freedom (libertarianism) is waxing strong. The same substitution curves that modeled past trends, such as democracy replacing monarchy and digital media replacing vinyl, reveal this with mathematical integrity.

Now… use a search engine to look for “libertarian trend curve”…
And select View Images…

Duck Duck Go returns nothing at all, not even for “libertarian trend” curve–at least not south of the Equator. But fills the screen with images if you search for “honest politician”.

Google pulls up an old graph of LP Twitter links then fills the rest of the screen with “libertarian socialism”… Wobbly geezers in sepia and Daguerrotype peer out from wrinkles and beards. Through the looking-glass of corporate search engines, web-surfers are tube-fed this association of “libertarian” with embalmed brainwashed communists and bomb-tossing, politician-shooting anarchist arsonists. How convenient.

Before 1972, when our platform handed the Supreme Court a Roe v Wade decision on the same platter with the first electoral vote ever earned by a woman, such package-deal tarbrushing was already common. For a historical parallel, in 1932, as economy-wrecking Republican prohibitionists were in the shadow of the 1932 election guillotine, they invented the fiction that Liberal meant anti-american communist jewish drug pornographers. The Liberal Party had the previous year published a platform calling for repeal of the 18th Amendment root and branch.

LP Errors

When the Libertarian Party’s official publication cannot identify kleptocracy policy errors, resignations are in order. Above is a case in point from the March 2010 issue of LP News. Mindful that we rely on amateurs and volunteers, and must expect them to overlook salient facts embarrassing to the predatory professionals with whom we compete, it is still a good thing to understand what is going on. Two, six, nine and ten are the result mainly of Republicans bombing OTHER superstitious fanatics half a planet away. Four, five, seven and eight are primarily due to reckless, violent, prohibitionist looting of the sort HL Mencken described as Comstockism.

The market crash of 2008 had the same main cause as the crashes of 1907, 1920, 1929 and 1987. In all those cases prohibitionist fanatics laid hands on a weapon with which to threaten the lives and livelihoods of other citizens. In 1907 the Pure Food and Drug act empowered dry fanatics and crony mercantilists to interfere with commerce they felt was sinful. The same occurred in 1920, was nullified by police connivance and participation in bootlegging. It then went ballistic as the income tax liability ruling of 1927 combined with the March 2, 1929 Increased Penalties Act to topple the economy as of early September 1929. Why then? Because that’s when Mabel Willebrandt’s column explained the new enforcement methods. Now fast forward.

In 2007-8 Bush Jr, reelected, had nothing to lose by subsidizing fanatical prohibition evangelists with “faith-based” government appointments and tax money. Grow houses, autos, boats, aircraft, bank accounts and real estate were confiscated at accelerating rates until mortage-backed securities became worthless by dint of wholesale looting and impairment of mortgage contracts–over PLANT LEAVES!

Nobody at Libertarian Party headquarters noticed this mechanism. Even the first Flash Crash two years later did not rouse our eternally vigilant watchmen from the sleepy vagueness with which the Kleptocracy muffles evidence of its blunderings.

THEY sure as hell understand what happened. Bert Hoover wrecked the economy trying to bust Al Capone and thus intimidate the yeast and glucose Trusts. Simultaneous efforts against German narcotics then replacing alcohol led to our empowerment of Hitlerian National Socialism in a sucker’s bargain that got Roosevelt’s repeal party elected five times running.

Superstitious altruistic prohibitionists know that service pistols attacking freedom of trade and production (of grain products and plant leaves) kills people and the economy, but what they care about is Satan. Other superstitious prohibitionists can feel that service pistols attacking freedom of trade and production (of power plants and transmission lines) increases the death rate, but what they care about is individualism.

Understanding anarchism

History is littered with evidence enough to conclude that anarchism is yet another communo-fascist variant of altruistic socialism based on the initiation of force. At least history was what convinced me–that and the way “former” communists came out of the woodwork to infiltrate libertarian activities in 1980. The pattern was the same as in the 1960s and ’70s. Looters in those days infiltrated hippie activities the way they infiltrated labor unions in the teens and twenties and cult religions in the 1880s through the noughts. Bad laws resulted.

Most of the reasons necessitating formation of the Libertarian Party resulted from this infectious penetration-through-mimeses of social movements by predators convinced the world owes them a living. By the method of spoiler votes they added to American jurisprudence the force laws the LP has been successfully repealing by the same method these past 46 years.

The above news article dated 05OCT1905 relates that

…Anthony W. Olseon, age 25 of Youngstown, Ohio… shot and fatally wounded Hugh Hamilton… in front of Merchants Hotel, in Water street. Oleson fired four shots into Hamilton’s body, after which he caused quite a disturbance in the surrounding streets. He was finally placed under arrest. The cause of the shooting is not known. The police found a number of socialist pamphlets and a Washington, DC railroad ticket on Oleson’s person.

Police then speculated

… that Oleson is the same person who tried to reach President Roosevelt Monday afternoon, October 5, 1903. Superintendent Wallace thinks that the Oleson now in the Central Station is a former resident of Minneapolis and that on the date mentioned he entered the lobby of the White House armed with a revolver and knife.
When discovered by secret servicemen the suspect put up a fierce fight, Officer Olstell being wounded. Investigation on October 6, 1903, developed that the man was an anarchist and that he was known as Peter Eliott and Peter Oleson. He was committed to an insane asylum and escaped, being next heard of in Ohio.
The Youngstown, Ohio police wired that they believe Oleson could throw considerable light on the murder of a woman supposed to be Oleson’s wife, which occurred in Youngstown some months ago. Oleson answers the description of the man wanted  by the Ohio officials. He is a machinist.

Ask yourself if Oleson is someone you would vote for in order to reduce the initiation of force. If the answer is no, then why not help the LP purge itself of harmful, voter-alienating impostors? Cross-dressing to infiltrate our party for the specific purpose of bullying women or sanctifying Antifa-style communism had become a major industry. Our purpose is to shift policy, laws and the police away from coercion and toward freedom. Our purpose is to increase freedom by democratic means. Freedom is the absence of the initiation of force, so much so that it in the universe of political discourse it could be represented as 1-f, where f is the initiation of force.

Every libertarian vote decreases the violence of law. This is verifiable. Every vote in favor of Fabian communism in 1892 brought on the economy-destroying income tax. The banking system collapsed, union goons fired on men applying for jobs. A rabble of Altrurian looters marched on Washington to demand money in a scene that would not occur again until “brothers’ keeper” Herbert Hoover again wrecked the economy in Christianity’s War on the Demon Rum.

Violent racial collectivism formed a party behind George Wallace. In 1968, when there was no Libertarian Party, Dixiecrat National Socialists collected thrice the votes cast for communist socialists in 1892. Wallace’s campaign put Nixon in office and sent “a message to Washington” that rewound the South back into the ku-klux Reconstruction era. Violence blossomed like napalm until the LP made it possible to vote for peace and freedom and send THAT message to DC.

While waiting for the next in this series of historical accounts demonstrating that anarchism is still the murdering communism sane people know it to be, why not delve into what caused the 1929 Crash? Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 does exactly that, matching newspaper accounts against stock market reactions and competing theories.

Cognitive Mental Blocks

Ecological National Socialists have no trouble understanding how two logical variables yield four possibilities when it suits their agenda. The NFPA circulates the above (admittedly garbled) chart in support of violent laws against anything liable to interrupt a game of dominoes at the government-owned fire station.

Genetics offers another illustration:

But teevee, subsidized by the Nixon anti-libertarian law to ignore everything except kleptocracy, can only focus on three possibilities.

Yet those same intellectuals become one-dimensional when challenged to understand anything that lies outside the Venn Diagram circles encompassing socialism in its populist and communo-fascist variants. A blinkered looter visualizes a straight line running from Hitler/Mussolini/Franco to Stalin/Ceausescu/Mao with nothing in between but religious gradations of socialist and mystical altruism.

To the entire satisfaction of mystical prohibitionists, adding alcohol to water eventually transubstantiates the latter into a Satanic alcoholic beverage, and adding (non-mohammedan) religion to a heavily-mixed economy gradually changes it from “bad” socialism to (by their lights) “good” fascism. Nowadays fascists and socialists alike refer to their own system as “democracy” and that other one, respectively, as socialism or fascism.

In These States the Tordesillas line was drawn at an alcoholic content of 0.5% in the Prohibition Enforcement act drawn up by Andrew Volstead of Minnesota. This distinction also made sauerkraut evil, Satanic and illegal. But when this law enforcing the Prohibition Amendment flipped off the lights of freedom on the night of January 16th, 1920, the U.S. Senate, by declining to be a party to the Treaty of Versailles, kept us technically at war with Germany, or The Accursed Hun as it was known at the time. So no True American™ really cared about sauerkraut.

Among today’s fanatics–struggling to ban electric power or plant leaves instead of beer–none have even the foggiest notion or how an individual right might be defined. To them a right is something the world owes them at your expense, not a moral claim to freedom of action. Most puzzling to this mentality is confrontation with the Nolan Diagram. Even survivors of the Argentine educational system can grasp a 2-gradient chart between freedom and orders at gunpoint when broken down according to the two primary contexts (individual personhood and agency as homo economicus) from which they fish for pretexts to justify aggression at gunpoint.

Here is an Argentine version of the Nolan Chart in its version tilted so as to allow the one-dementional to superimpose upon it their own universe of discourse confined to a horizontal line extending from Hitler to Stalin.

To American National Socialists, for whom Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon and George Wallace are plain, regular folks, this Argentine chart makes no sense whatsoever. Ever since Carnegie Institute Liberals formed an anti-Klan, pro-Beer party in 1930, then published a platform demanding the repeal of the Prohibition Amendment, the word liberal changed its meaning. Shortly before Election Day, in late October of 1932, the ruling coalition redefined liberal to mean “godless communist drunkards who hate America” in the costume of its own imaginings.

Citizens of civilized nations are utterly baffled by this coinage–minted as it were in the very heart of the Sahara of the Bozarts over which Richmond Hobson of Alabama, Morris Sheppard of Texas and Volstead shone beatifically as the very embodiment of the Holy Trinity… while voters locked the head of the Republican Party into the stocks of the guillotine and gave the lever a satisfying tug.

Pero, no, y evite Evita

Argentine Libertarian Party

Eighty-seven years later, liberal everywhere else in the world still means libertarian. Cowardly, spineless, unprincipled or gelded libertarian, true enough, but libertarian or liberal is in both cases lies at the root of the noun denoting an individual who recognizes the individual rights of fellow human beings–even in opposition to the Divine “right” (meaning sanction to murder and rob) of kings, popes, caudillos and klans. 

So all is not lost. Looter values begin and end with “we must issue the following orders at gunpoint” because (__insert rationalizing pretext__). If the pretext is “because the Bible says altruism is good,” then the speaker is fascist-prohibitionist-totalitarian in value orientation. If the pretext is “because selfishness feels like it ought to be denounced as evil,” then the speaker is a conditioned socialist-collectivist-communist-totalitarian.

Argentinos–politically separated by a papal line on a map–cannot completely let go of the one-dimensional lay/progressive v. religious/fascist differentiation. But today they at least they grasp the concept of how two related choices generate four possible outcomes. That’s progress Americans would do well to understand.

Open Borders, European Style

Importing Kristallnacht and National Socialism

Uninspected Entry for gentiles at Austria/Germany Border

There was a time when Europeans did not fear people crossing the border to disarm, capture and exterminate populations accused of insufficient altruistic zeal. By May of 1945 that open borders policy was no longer popular and the Austrian Government repealed the Anschluss law.

German politicians have since then adopted a sort of national flagellation movement. Rather than realize that their problems stemmed from mystical altruism, today’s Germans deliberately import racially semitic but culturally anti-Jewish fanatics, perhaps out of a sense of sacrificial atonement.

Some of our nouveau “libertarians” have been persuaded by anarchist infiltrators that “within a particular territory” ought to be removed from the objective definition of government framed by Weber and ratified by Ayn Rand and all other moral philosophers. Political change can be gradual, by vote, or bloody–take your pick. The harsh facts of recorded reality show that the closer one moves toward a state of warfare (that is, anarchy), the higher the rate of rape, murder, robbery and other unpleasant violations of individual rights.

Functionally, these data show that a shift toward anarchism/war has the same outcome as a shift toward socialism, especially in its communo-fascist variants–fewer rights, earlier death. One cannot ask for more objective evidence that anarchism and communism are the identical monstrosities newspapers have proclaimed them to be for the past 150 years. Machine-gunnings in Paris nightclubs, crushing of pedestrians and another refugee Exodus into Israel reinforce the proof with graphic explicitness only willful blindness can evade.

American voters have evidently perceived this. The vote in 2016 shifted overwhelmingly toward Libertarian candidates (up 328% to 4 million Presidential votes). A comparable shift in 1968 Comstockery empowered anti-communist Republicans of the sort that passed the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law subsidizing entrenched looter parties out of tax revenue. The result of the Nixon law is that the IRS pays the media to ignore, dismiss and smear libertarian candidates. The only remaining way of communicating to Congress which laws we want repealed is through the mechanism of coercion-toppling, law-changing spoiler votes.

George Wallace Dixiecrats, irritated by JFK’s enforcement of judiciary rulings against segregation, netted 46 electoral votes from 5 southern states and shifted the entire Solid South into the Republican camp with 13% of the popular vote. Bryanist communism got the prohibition and income tax amendments into the Constitution after People’s Party candidates got 9% of the vote and 22 electoral votes in 1892. That’s the kind of law changing clout the LP could have with a little less sabotage from within.

Our mission has not changed:

“Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the life of the individual and seize the fruits of his labor without his consent.”

We can earn more spoiler votes, hence change more laws, by minding our own business. By levering the fratricidal parasitism of looter parties against each we are gradually but broadly rewarding policies that reduce coercion. With another 6% we can excise the remaining force Amendment out of the Constitution. Shucks, another 10% of the vote would enable us to change the colors on the election map via the same sigmoid-curve process of substitution whereby tapes replaced LPs and were themselves replaced by digital media. Recall that this writer published The Case for Voting Libertarian in February 2007, and the math was aired on Gary Johnson’s “Live and Let Live” public access TV series in Austin, Texas.

Spoiling is Winning!

The Case for Voting Libertarian published February 2007

Oddly enough, the Libertarian Party’s share of the vote has increased in a consistently steep trend since that time. What you see in these graphs could easily be a causal correlation. I personally was sad and frustrated that our candidate’s weren’t being placed in office. But since the day I realized that Libertarian candidates are the ones causing the looter kleptocracy to back away from shooting kids over plant leaves, frog-marching youngsters into wars, bombing primitive villages–in short, all the things the 1972 LP Platform was against–I’ve been a happy camper.

Bust Beer Buyers 1929

The folly of fanaticism with guns

Shocking even to fanatics!

Ninety years ago this month Senator Morris Sheppard of fanatically dry Texas designed a law to make buying a beer a felony under the Volstead and Five and Ten laws. This is the politician who wrote the 18th amendment and pushed it with blind disregard for what criminalizing a popular commodity might again do to the U.S. economy. This p 2 Chicago Tribune clipping for October 13, 1929 saw daylight 11 days before Black Thursday.

Dr Arthur J Barton, chairman of the national executive committee of the anti-saloon league of America, tonight said he doubted the constitutionality of Senator Morris Sheppard’s proposed amendment to the prohibition law, which would make the purchaser of intoxicating liquors equally guilty with the seller.
Dr Barton said: “I do not know of any general demand among the dry organizations and leaders for such an amendment. I doubt whether such an amendment would be constitutional, and I fear that the introduction of the amendment at the present time is untimely and unfortunate.”
Dr Barton said it was his opinion that convictions under the proposed amendment would be impossible to obtain.
“A fundamental principle and a specific provision of the constitution of the United States is that no man can be forced to testify when his testimony would incriminate himself,” he said.

Asset forfeiture story same page. The U.S. Treasury gleefully confiscated and sold off automobiles found with any amount of beer or liquor, with no regard for the companies financing the sale of the cars. George Bush Jr’s faith-based fanatics did the same thing with houses in 2006 and 2007, leaving the homebuyer with no place to live and a mortgage bill to pay off. Neither Herbert Hoover nor Waffen Bush had any clue how much money their prohibitionist looting would cause to vanish from the fractional-reserve banks and brokerage firms.

Enforcement murderers protected by law, same page. Senator Millard Tydings accused the feds of covering up 51 murders committed by dry killers during violent prohibition enforcement.  This is the same sort of thing practiced today on account of enjoyable plant leaves, and the amount of money involved is likely to be a neat fraction of the Gross National Product. But just as there was a Liberal Party in 1930, there is a Libertarian Party in 2019. Our repeal plank sends a loud and unmistakable message to Washington

What’s the opposite of libertarian?

The Real Deal

I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals. That means Libertarian.

So what is the antonym of Libertarian?

Anarchist means doing away with laws that secure individual rights.

Cruel means willfully causing pain or suffering to others.

Truculent means eager or quick to argue or fight; aggressively defiant.

Pugnacious means eager or quick to argue, quarrel, or fight.

Coercive means using force or threats.

Violent means using or involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.

Dangerous means able or likely to cause harm or injury. 

Dishonest is behaving or prone to behave in an untrustworthy or fraudulent way.

Totalitarian is centralized and dictatorial, requiring complete subservience to the State.

Deadly is causing or able to cause death. Synonym: politically powerful

Menacing is threatening, especially in a malignant or hostile manner.

So… what might be some other synonyms for Socialist? 

Cowardly is carried out against a person who is unable to retaliate: a cowardly attack on a helpless victim.

Unwillingly is against one’s wishes; reluctantly. 

Examples from looter party platforms. (Guess which party…)

Example 1: We must go for 100% renewables, use our energy efficiently, phase out fossil energy and nuclear power while creating sustainable jobs in affected regions. To cut emissions fast enough to reach the 1.5°C-world we will push hard for a just transition towards a net-zero-emissions economy. An EU carbon budget and a strong carbon floor price are needed to strengthen our efforts.

Example 2: We advocate increased research on and development of non-fossil fuel resources, tax breaks for companies engaging in such, and subsidies for consumers wishing to change from fossil fuels to renewable domestic sources of energy. We believe that climatic change could be an existential threat to civilization, and we will cooperate with other nations in mitigating its possible effects. However, we will not surrender our sovereignty in this, or any other regard.

Example 3: The progress made over the last three decades against drug abuse is eroding, whether for cultural reasons or for lack of national leadership. In many jurisdictions, marijuana is virtually legalized despite its illegality under federal law. At the other end of the drug spectrum, heroin use nearly doubled from 2003 to 2013, while deaths from heroin have quadrupled. All this highlights the continuing conflicts and contradictions in public attitudes and public policy toward illegal substances.

Example 4: We will fight back against attempts to make it harder for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to revoke federal licenses from law breaking gun dealers, and ensure guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists, intimate partner abusers, other violent criminals, and those with severe mental health issues. There is insufficient research on effective gun prevention policies, which is why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must have the resources it needs to study gun violence as a public health issue.

Example 5: We support the right of parents to consent to medical treatment for their minor children and urge enactment of legislation that would require parental consent for their daughter to be transported across state lines for abortion. Providers should not be permitted to unilaterally withhold services because a patient’s life is deemed not worth living. American taxpayers should not be forced to fund abortion. As Democrats abandon this four decade-old bipartisan consensus, we call for codification of the Hyde Amendment and its application across the government, including Obamacare. We call for a permanent ban on federal funding and subsidies for abortion and healthcare plans that include abortion coverage.
