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 to 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.

What elected Libertarians do

For a practical definition, if men merely agree that no man or number of men have the right to initiate the use of force against any human being (and that includes the forcible seizure of his property), that they have no such right for any purpose whatsoever, at any time whatsoever—that would be all we need, that would achieve a perfect Utopia on earth, that would include all the moral code we need. –Ayn Rand, April 17, 1947

Admission to LP.org is contingent on rejecting the initiation of force. But election to a deliberative body dominated by entrenched tools of the looter persuasion confronts newly-seated members with opportunities to vote on alternatives posited on the absolute desirability of the initiation of force. Elected libertarians are bound to support policies that do not rely on coercion, or that lessen coercion. But will this affect the way the rest of the elected officials vote?

Dissent from concerted deception reduces error

Scientific American, November 1955

The context is similar to the Opinions and Social Pressure experiments conducted by Solomon Asch in the 1950s and reproduced by many psychologists since that time. Three lines of different lengths were displayed and subjects were asked to indicate which of the three matched the length of a fourth line. Participants were instructed to occasionally lie in unison about the facts (like looter politicians) and only one subject–unaware of the collusion–answered in accordance with the evidence of his or her senses.

Three-quarters of those tested went along with the obvious lies of the majority until joined by a defector reporting truthfully. At that point the error-inducing effect of social pressure exerted by the lying majority (for groups ranging from 4 to 20 persons) is diminished by roughly 25%.

Clean the government environment!

Blind consensus is pollution in government bodies

By not participating in partisan collusion to report that 2+2=5, elected Libertarians increase the correctness of decisions made by each of their fellow elected officials by about 25%. Voting for a libertarian party candidate is not only leveraged by a large factor, but works to repel legislation based on falsehood. This has the added benefit of reducing self-deception by approximately 1/4 in every committee to which a libertarian member is added. Libertarians reduce the pollution of government by entrenched conformity with a bias favoring the initiation of force.

That’s winning!

Republican and communist birth control bans

LSD held hostage for birth control

Canada works to repeal Comstock laws after Ceausescu coerced Romanian women into forced labor

The Republican Comstock law of 1873 had leaked across the border into Canada to ban all mention of birth control. Cracks developed in the censorship in November 1967 when Canada and the rest of the UK voted on the legality of birth control. A joker (rider) injected into Canadian law political power to ban drugs such as LSD. This was based on the same sort of pseudoscience and superstition that censored information on birth control in the first place. It was a tit-for-tat utilitarian monster compromise, betraying one individual right to prolong another–back before there was a Libertarian Party on either side of the northern border.

Not so long before Hitler’s National Socialism was penned as a platform in 1920, American President Theodore Roosevelt took pen in hand to argue that women ought to be forced into involuntary labor.  Roosevelt’s “race suicide letter” was the Republican inspiration for Hitler in 1920 and Romanian dictator Ceausescu in 1966. Ceausescu’s coercion of women made it urgent that Canada act to at least partially enforce individual rights. The American Libertarian Party’s surprise victory in getting the Supreme Court to use the Overpopulation plank to strike down Comstock laws on our side of the border. This set the stage for individual rights for women in the UK and Dominions. All of Canada’s remaining abortion laws were struck down soon after the Libertarian Roe v Wade decision.

Theodore Roosevelt, enforcer of Comstock legislation pleasing to the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice in the 1890s,  waxed eloquent on the subject of “race suicide” in an October 1902 letter:

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.

This sentiment was parroted by communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu of Rumania, who saw to the prosecution of the victimless “criminals” invented by Teddy Roosevelt. Ceausescu asserted:

Anyone who avoids having children is a deserter who abandons the laws of national continuity.

You know what governments do to deserters, right? The dictatorship even charged a celibacy tax, and tax evasion under communism is up there with heresy under Sharia law.

Romanian Comstock laws

Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz!

National and international socialism united!

Romania struck down its Comstock laws and legalized female individual rights back in the 1950s, before there were birth-control pills. Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in 1966 decreed American-style Comstock coercion of the sort President Grant had signed in 1873. Both laws banned pregnancy termination, contraceptives, publications or even private speech about such subjects and provided fines and imprisonment. The Romanian birth rate doubled in 1967, and the maternal mortality rate tripled under Ceausescu’s use of national State coercion to ward off the “race suicide” danger Republican Theodore Roosevelt penned, opening the gates for collectivist eugenics with forced labor replacing the individual rights of women.

As alike as peas in a pod

Ford, Nixon and Ceausescu, before defeat, impeachment and execution

Ceausescu immediately became the fair-haired boy of the Republican party. Nixon in 1972 made a point of aping Ceausescu’s visit to China the previous year. Dixiecrats sought to emulate Ceausescu’s Lebensborn policy of stripping women of rights and sending them into forced labor. This they accomplished by threatening (and occasionally shooting) physicians. As late as 1983, Republican Vice President George H. W. Bush referred to Ceausescu as “the good communist”.

But disaster struck in 1972 when nearly 4000 voters (and one elector) cast ballots for the Libertarian Party platform, which said:

“We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”

After the votes were counted the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v Wade:

“(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. …”

The Republicans and their mentors, the Prohibition Party, had by next election composed another Force Amendment to undo the Supreme Court’s repudiation of the Comstock laws they’d managed to get past the Reconstruction Congress in 1873. This demand for a force Amendment has been parroted for 45 years, since the first election following the Roe v. Wade decision. The 2016 version recites:

“We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.”

The Prohibition party has dropped this plank and opted to instead support the Gospel of Global Warming. But like Rumanian communism or an Orwellian Inner Party, the Republican party faithful look at the Fourteenth Amendment’s “All persons born” and see instead “All ova fertilized…”. No clearer example of the self-deception that forms the basis of totalitarian altruism has ever been presented.

Brazilian illiteracy and prohibition

A shipment of Brazilian marijuana was forfeited to the Highway Patrol there because of a spelling error.

Chicken backs are spelt “dorso de frango.” Illiterates filling out the bill of lading labeled the cargo “dorço de frango,” arousing police suspicions. Sure enough, packages of hempen plant leaves had also been placed aboard the truck carrying frozen poultry from Cascavel in the interior of Paraná. Here’s a video showing what went down.

The driver, 31 years old, was seeking to make ends meet in a nation’s virtual economic collapse caused largely by prohibitionist U.S. meddling overseas. I’ll explain:

The communist income tax amendment was enacted to overturn the Supreme Court decision in Pollock v. Farmers’ Loan and Trust Company, (1895). Readers of this blog will recall that the Panic of 1893 had several components (sudden ramp-up of customs seizures enforcing the tariff on opium imports, subsidized coinage of silver mined in Western States recently admitted to the Union, Chinese reaction to renewal of Geary Exclusion law, collapse of French investment in Panama Canal construction, People’s Party communists obtaining almost 9% of the popular vote, scooping 5% of the electoral votes from 3 states and installing three socialist politicians in Congress).  As soon as the insurgent looters were seated, they and others began agitating for the income tax. The prospect was enough to cause capital to flee banks and brokerages and the economy collapsed entirely. The Supreme Court had to be called upon to reverse Congressional dereliction, and ruled that the tax law violated the Constitution since it imposed taxes on personal income derived from real estate investments and personal property such as stocks and bonds.

The Supreme Court decision was a correct interpretation of the Constitution’s grant of powers. However, that court’s Dred Scott decision was also correct regarding the text which had to do with fugitive slaves. In reaction, the 13th and 14th Amendments were imposed to nullify verbiage abetting slavery at a time when votes from unreconstructed Confederate States did not count. Just so did suddenly-entrenched Altrurian communists react to the Court’s rescue of the economy-on-strike from the 1894 income tax. The Democratic party–eager to procure populist spoiler votes–promptly committed itself to championing the incorporation of Communist Manifesto Plank 2 (progressive income tax) into the Constitution of These United States.

But the reason the Dems won in 1892 in the first place goes back to the Comstock laws. These religious blue laws defined mothers’ breasts as indecent pornography, ordered postal inspectors to seize all birth control devices and drugs (including condoms) and provided lengthy prison terms for even telling someone about such things. Encouraged, temperance prohibitionists such as Benjamin Harrison ran for office and doubled down on legislating mystical deontology. Dems resisted by condemning “sumptuary laws which vex the citizen and interfere with individual liberty.” But the Cleveland Administration was soon swept up by enthusiasts for the sort of wholesale looting of the populace which had already caused the Whiskey Rebellion, the Nullification Crisis and the Civil War.  People nurse a grievance when coerced at gunpoint.

Pressed by the Libertarian Party platform since 1972 and awakened by the George Wehrmacht Bush “good-faith” asset-prohibition Crash of 2007, American voters are now defecting to the Libertarian Party just as the Supreme Court did in 1973.

Malthusian disaster averted!

Time derivative of world population growth

But neighboring countries–former colonies of Spain and Portugal–are still jailing, robbing and murdering their citizens using laws the U.S. imported from Italy and Germany and reexported to Latin America since before the Eisenhower Administration. Brazilians are forced at gunpoint to vote for some 33 communist and fascist parties subsidized by campaign subsidy laws similar to the one signed by Nixon in 1971. Bolivia elects communists because papist puppets favored by Washington seek to shoot and jail people over plant leaves. Same thing in Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela. They are trapped in a unifilar political rut from which Libertarian spoiler votes have gradually freed the U.S. and Canada over the past 46 years.

So while young men in Colorado can have jobs and cannabis without fear, their South American counterparts smuggle to overcome starvation under economic régimes already stale when Hoover, Ike, Nixon and Stalin regulated economic activity at gunpoint.

You can correct this injustice by setting an example: vote Libertarian. Fewer than 4000 LP votes toppled Dixiecrat coercion of women. Four million such votes just ended much discrimination left over from the Comstock and Jim Crow eras. If our fellow Americans are prevented from voting Libertarian by the puppets our parents and grandparents propped up, the least we can do is cast law-changing spoiler votes to stop this wholesale exportation of prohibitionist fascism and predatory socialism.

Republicans Fear LP Spoiler votes

Lose the looter planks or lose the election

Law-changing spoiler votes

Nixon’s Republican Party changed the tax code to pay the media to ignore the Libertarian Party in 1971, the year we were founded. Yet with its first published platform the LP parlayed fewer than 4000 votes into a win for women in the US and Canada.

The LP platform language:

“We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”

was translated by Austin attorney Libby Linebarger into the 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. …”

The next election, 1972, both the Republican Party and its spoiler vote controllers demanded a Constitutional Amendment to overturn that Libertarian Party platform plank copied by the Supreme Court. The Prohibitionists have finally given up and are pushing the Global Warming Apocalypso. But Republican partisans are still in a rut as of their 2016 platform:

We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.

The 14th Amendment, by the way, starts by protecting “All persons born”, not all ova fertilized.

God’s Own Prohibitionists have since 2013 had mystical shills penning tear-jerker insinuations at Forbes. After carpetbiting for an Amendment to undo the Libertarian Party’s 1972 plank for 46 years, Republicans now understand that the collectivism of race suicide paranoia is the anvil that is drowning their party. Global Warmunism is the even bigger anvil drowning the Democratic and Econazi parties. Good riddance!

Yet in our battleground states, where Libertarian vote counts are larger than the difference between the Nationalsocialist warriors-for-the-babies and the Soviet socialist energy slave abolitionists, we handed the election to the least coercive candidate, and the looter parties lost those about evenly. Our pro-choice candidate may win the NM senate race, and not just in the usual sense of WINNING by forcing the looters to repeal bad laws (or getting the Supreme Court to strike them down).
