The Prohibition Kleptocracy, 2020

When Nixon was running for re-election, many young people imagined that Eagleton’s Democratic party had made up its mind to stop sending men with guns to shoot people over marijuana. Almost nobody eligible to have the guns pointed at them read political party platforms. Unlike 1932, newspapers in 1972 made a point of not publishing party planks, thanks to the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law.(link) The resulting level of ignorance and wishful thinking was summed up by cartoonist Shel Silverstein. 

Joe Biden, who continues to oppose legalizing cannabis, said that more states should “recognize the significant costs to their economy when people with certain non-violent criminal records can’t fully contribute to their full talents and capacity.” However, “even when the states want to give that person a second chance and seal or expunge a certain non-violent criminal record, the record keeping-systems are so outdated, they don’t know how to do it.”(link)

Yet the Dems STILL want the federal government sending unionized looters out to confiscate homes, vehicles and bank accounts while pointing loaded pistols at people. Where in the papers do you see this clearly spelled out? 

Clear reporting on platform planks

Honest reporting helped the Liberal Party repeal Prohibition

In 1972 exactly NO newspapers informed voters of the Libertarian Party’s plank calling for decriminalization of marijuana and entheogens such as mescaline, LSD, psilocybin and mushrooms, DMT and DET, and even bugbear drugs from South american plant leaves and Vietnamese and Afghani poppies. Why?

Nixon’s Anti-Libertarian Law still pays newspapers tax dollars to ignore the LP.(link)  WaPo, the NYT and Chicago Tribune–in fact, every paper in the country would rather see you shot or rot in prison before giving up the political bribe your money pays them to lie, conceal and dissemble in an effort to reduce the efficacy of law-changing Libertarian spoiler votes.(link

I will never buy another paper from those kleptocracy abettors, and I’ve voted the straight Libertarian Party ticket since the dawn of understanding as to what is going on.(link) But if you want to vote Kleptocracy, go ahead. Just do not expect any sympathy from me when your door comes flying in, your dog and kids are shot on a no-knock warrant and it turns out to be another wrong address.(link)

Voter Suppression, 1931

Voter Suppression under Prohibition

Read the original stories (link) (link)

Beer was a felony, and Herbert Hoover was sworn to use federal agents to enforce the Women’s Christian Temperance Union’s war on getting high. The Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition and Public Morals declared all police shootings justified, with total immunity for the dry killers. The Liberal Party was formed by Pittsburgh Pennsylvania businessmen to run Thomas W. Phillips for governor on a platform to repeal prohibition. Socialist candidates avoided discussing prohibition, calling it a “red herring.” See Socialist Head Hails Cleanup.(link)

The idea was to eliminate a wishy-washy “moist” Republican named Francis Shunk Brown, and nominate Gifford Pinchot–a fanatical dry who even censored beer and hip flask scenes from movies at local theaters. Stage two of the plan was to defeat the hated Pinchot in an up-or-down vote on Prohibition.(link) The second stage called for throwing Liberal Party support to defeat dry bigot Pinchot and elect the proudly wet Democrat John Hemphill. This is the classic third-party chessboard maneuvering the looter kleptocracy fears most.(link)

Phillips’ candidacy eliminated the spineless Brown. There followed a race in which Republican Gifford Pinchot beat Democrat Hemphill by 5% thanks to a last minute patronage agreement with the Pittsburgh soft machine. This maneuver mooted the 366,572 votes, or 15% of the total, cast by Phillips’ Liberal supporters for Hemphill, the only Democrat the Liberal Party endorsed. The same paper elided mention of Phillips, and misnamed the Liberal Party the Liberay Party after the election.(link)

Kleptocracy looters lose 1931

Third party spoiler votes change everything!

That edition also mentioned the “almost forgotten Prohibition party” at the bottom of page 2.(link) One year later Herbert Hoover would be tossed out of office after every bank in the nation closed its doors, with the Dems winning the first of five consecutive elections. The Party of Principle seen its chances and took them to rid the nation of the primary cause of the Great Depression. The other causes, plant leaf prohibition and the individual income tax, are only now nearing repeal thanks to the Libertarian Party’s spoiler vote clout.

Let Her Speak

 

Four years ago a woman came within 80,000 votes of winning the presidential election according to Vanity Fair.(link)

Today two males representing looter prohibitionist parties are asking for your vote. Your vote for Trump or Biden’s platforms will keep police looking for ways to shoot your child using plant leaves as an excuse. Should the child survive, that will mean the addition of another victimless person to the world’s largest prison system. Both legacy parties are cruel, dishonest and violent. Thanks to the Libertarian Party may choose between the old coercive kleptocracy and a new dawn–not being bullied at gunpoint

The Democratic and Republican parties are about the initiation of force. Any murders, no matter how heinous or cowardly, they will again write of as the price “we” must pay for eugenics, or climate pseudoscience, or the worship of their invisible friends, or some imagined conspiracy by selfish egoists. I say again because this happened before already.(link

From 1938 to May of 1945, Christian National Socialist Germany systematically disarmed, arrested, enslaved and exterminated millions of Jews on the Eugenic theory that they were born selfish, whereas Christians are born altruists, and the world had to be made safe for altruism. This is still the ideology of the Republican Party.(link

From 1919 through the 1930s, Soviet communists systematically enslaved and mass-murdered Ukraine farmers to steal their grain. The pretext was that they were selfishly hoarding seed grain from the glorious altruist revolution that just accidentally left everyone but party officials in starvation and pestilence. This is the ideology of the Democratic Party.(link)

Cowards casting votes for either gang of violent looters will of course see these charges not as falsehoods, but as exaggeration or too bluntly put. Republicans will argue that only a few teenagers are murdered by the looter police or coathanger abortions they insist on perpetuating. Dems will likewise claim that all criticism of socialist regimes are lies, fake news, and that even if the Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, East German, Romanian, Cuban, Angolan and Guyana communists hosted “a few” mass murders, their altruistic motives plainly justified those actions.(link

Republicans agree with Hitler in Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz (the Greater Good before the Individual Good) in the interest of “Positive Christianity,” and Mussolini’s Credere, Obbedire, Combattere. Democrats nowadays agree with nationalsocialists that altruistic motives justify the initiation of force, but that “the” other party “isn’t really” altruistic in its sacrifice of individuals on the altar of prohibitionist purity or in the war on race suicide.(link

spoiling for a fight

Nineteen million votes said to keep electricity, enjoyable leaves, women’s rights and self-defense uncoerced.

By merely LISTENING to what Jo Jorgensen has to say you undermine the power of these bloated entrenched kleptocracy forces–with their secret police and no-knock warrants–to confiscate everything you own for no reason. Well over 4 million libertarian spoiler votes upset China’s plans to have the Dems ban electrical power.  Nineteen million votes from municipal races to federal office were cast in support of the Libertarian Platform. Does spoiler voting work? Seen any draft cards lately? So yeah, let her speak!

Trump Reelection Speech–IRS Attacks


The 2016 platform on which I was elected your president said that “To guard against hypertaxation of the American people in any restructuring of the federal tax system, any value added tax or national sales tax must be tied to the simultaneous repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment, which established the fed­eral income tax.” I am telling you today that the tax you are working on, with all its myriad forms, schedules, questionnaires, threats and impositions does not have to exist.(link)

The Polish People, the Hungarians, Czechs, East Germans and Russians learned to repeal communist manifesto policies back in 1991. The American people could–in the midst of a biological pandemic from a communist country–act to free themselves of this involuntary compulsion of increasingly complicated individual income tax forms that ate a clear and blatant violation of the 13th Amendment.(link)

slavery or involuntary servitude

Congressmen force us to do what they cannot!

Today I, Donald Trump, am asking my fellow Republicans to strengthen that plank into a promise to repeal the individual income tax. That tax is a capitation tax prohibited by our Founding Fathers, and it only pays for that half of the Federal Budget we ought to cut anyway.(link) Corporations have lawyers and accountants who get paid for filling out tax forms. We must drain the swamp by beginning the process of repealing the 16th Amendment which was copied from the Communist Manifesto of 1848.(link

Let us stop letting the federal swamp grate away your life savings. The Income Tax passed by the Democrats with the help of the Progressive Party and People’s Party socialists, must be repealed. Just as we helped the Europeans free themselves from the communist manifesto, we need to help ourselves toward that same freedom and Make America Great Again.(link)

Individualists may invest a spoiler vote in the LP.org… Hear Jo: (link)


There may be one or two people out there who do not like me, and they are entitled to their opinion. But I also understand that NOBODY likes Assistant Drug Czar Joe Biden. For those people I call attention to the fact that Jo Jorgensen, the libertarian party candidate, also favors repeal of the individual income tax and all other victimless crime laws. Asked about Libertarianism in 2016, I replied “I like it!”(link) That’s two of the top three political parties in favor of repealing that bad Amendment, and two out of three ain’t bad.(link)

Disclosure: This is NOT a real Donald Trump speech–yet. It is only a speech I wish he would make, a speech that could win him a second term.

It Takes a Village Idiot

Irishwoman 1971

Ireland, 1971, no LP.org

As soon as the Libertarian Party used a single electoral vote to secure rights enjoyed by women in England and even Russia, God’s Own Prohibitionists began casting about for ways to counter, offset, weaken, ridicule, infiltrate and sabotage the Party of Principle. At the time the Libertarian party was formed, the English Parliament had already passed the 1967 Abortion Act stating essentially what our 1972 plank contained–at a time when nobody but George Wallace stood in opposition.

Shoot Me!

Wallace spoiler votes crippled America, and bullets crippled Wallace

But no sooner had the Supreme Court swung that plank like a mace to unhorse the latest Dixiecrat appeal to “race suicide” fears in Roe v Wade than national socialist soft machines went into high gear. The Prohibition Party platform added demands for yet another Prohibition Amendment, this one aimed at influencing Republican Party reproductive policies back to the Comstockism of 1873 via the threat of drawing away spoiler votes.(link) Sure enough, the Republican Party immediately copied that antichoice plank into its 1976 platform, in yet another proof of the law-changing effectiveness of casting spoiler votes.(link) (link)

Religious looters dominating the GOP and Prohibition Party essentially held their breath hoping nobody would mention the 1967 English (much less Russian) laws ensuring the individual rights of women. But after the LP let the cat out of the bag and Canada also jumped on the individual rights bandwagon, faith-based nationalsocialism began a sustained bombardment of amendment proposals to coerce women and doctors.   Ireland–politically a suburb of Vatican City at the time–fell prey to the whipped-up frenzy and joined a witchhunt against women and physicians with Amendment 8 passed in 1983 (then was repealed by 2/3 majority May 26, 2018). Communist Romania’s antichoice dictator Ceausescu was tried and executed on Christmas of 1989.(link

Village Idiot politics

Mises Caucus Anarchist Infiltrator The Village Idiot infiltration tactic

Yet here we are in the 21st Century and God’s Own Prohibitionists in their platform and policies STILL pressure, bribe, entice, infiltrate and intimidate the Libertarian Platform Committee back toward the halcyon days of the Panic of 1873. That was when sending a packet of condoms through the mail was good for ten years in the penitentiary and a fine equivalent to $300,000 at today’s gold conversion rate. What has changed is that ONLY Americans born before Herbert Hoover was nominated for the Presidency believe mysticism is increasingly important to politics. Those pre-1928 Landover Baptist, Billy Sunday, Father Coughlin, Billy Graham and Bob Jones Republican tools insist on poisoning our platform with planks designed to repel women voters. Their latest tactic is to subsidize LP infiltration by clowns and mentally disturbed exhibitionists.  

The smart way to break the cycle is to vote Libertarian, and let the Republican Party flounder and sink as voters flee the national socialist shipwreck and vote 21st-Century American Libertarian policies instead of 12th-Century Mohammedan attitudes toward women. Don’t worry. Many thinking people are poised to flee the sinking hulk that is the Democratic People’s Party as well. You cannot lose by exchanging 0.00000007% of a wasted vote total for 0.00002% of clout-leveraged spoiler votes guaranteed to put bad laws in the dustbin of history. That’s a leveraged gain of 3 orders of magnitude in the importance of your individual vote.

Spoiler Votes: Evolution in action

Spoiler vote evolution for change

Spoiler vote evolution in action: prohibitionists, socialists, averaging 2% of the vote. Votes above the horizontal line covered the gap between parties gaining and losing a hand in the till. Tall bars that did not cover the gap still exert great pressure for change on entrenched parties.

WINNING!

Libertarian votes are replacing Kleptocracy votes like CDs replaced vinyl LPs

Evolution is a process whereby DNA-based living things adapt themselves to reality in order to survive. Failure to deal with the facts of reality results in increased attrition, that is, death rate. Political systems evolve similarly. A century ago dead monarchies were washing ashore, replaced by democracies or dictatorships relying on a modified form of brainwashing and coercion. The Federalist Party went extinct, its niche occupied by the Whig, then by red Republican partisans. None of this happened overnight, but the 1st World War sped up the process. The 2nd raised the potential cost of aggression to levels that voters realize they cannot afford. The initiation of force now entails risk of retaliation with nuclear and biological weapons.

The logistical replacement curve above shows that voters are increasingly aware of this risk and acting to reduce it. Looter parties are also aware of this shift, and increasingly meddle with elections through subsidies, voter suppression, gerrymandering, intimidation, propaganda, character and actual assassination, trumped-up charges, infiltrators, agents provocateur, tarbrushing, sabotage, arson and violence–and not just in the United States. 

Comunists abolish elections

Russian voters increasingly shun the Communist Party, so Putin seeks appointment as Dictator For Life instead of more elections. Trends matter!

Since our own War Between the States, small looter parties fattened on Marx, Bellamy, Howells, London and less literate but still active communist anarchists. The constitution was mutated by artificial selection favoring the initiation of force, resulting in the Income Tax, Prohibition and direct Senate election amendments.

From 1868 to 1968 there was not a single party dedicated to the increase of freedom. All of them sought to maximize coercion–especially the seizure of other people’s goods. Young men had to choose between exile, prison or meddling as foreign murderers. Plant leaves were good for a prison term and forfeiture of assets. American women were conscripted in a eugenic War Against “Race Suicide”–the sort of law even Catholic Ireland has since repealed.

When Irish sights are open

Irishwoman before Libertarianism

All that changed when the Libertarian Party platform earned a ten thousandth of half the vote, and with one electoral vote assisted the Supreme Court in the defense of the individual rights of women. For the past 48 years voters have increasingly realized they can vote for individual rights for women without endorsing communism. Voters can reject entangling alliances and transfer payments from producers to non-producers without endorsing fascism. It is now possible to vote for economic freedom without attacking individual rights, and vice-versa.

We got 4 million presidential votes in 2016, up 328%, plus a similar number of votes in down-ballot State and county elections won by several of our candidates. A clout-wielding, law-changing Libertarian spoiler vote is never wasted. A vote for the Kleptocracy is a ballot wasted as 0.00000007% of the votes endorsing increased coercion, violence, war, debt, imprisonment, shooting of youth over plant leaves, torture of Americans abroad, and menacing of doctors who offer birth control. Your libertarian vote packs about 20 times the law-changing clout, and changes the laws to favor freedom, not add coercion.(link)

Prohibition and spoiler votes

1922-3 no deposits till after nullification of dry laws

US v Sullivan, 1927, income tax looting causes slow, steady withdrawals

Prohibition–the constitutional product of the shotgun wedding of fanatical mysticism, socialist controls and eugenics theories–became reality and a nightmare all at once on the night of January 16th, 1920. Socialist candidate Eugene Debs got nearly a million votes in the showdown between the Dems (who got us into WW1) and God’s Own Prohibitionists (who insisted we stay in the War on Beer). Why? Because in 1916 Debs had said “There is too much prohibition.” 

German stocks crash as heroin export income taxable

Germany exported heroin and had U.S. plants in the 1920s

When the economy collapsed after 6 months of wartime prohibition plus 1 month of Constitutional prohibition, membership in communist organizations promptly doubled. But the Kleptocracy ignored reality in 1920-1923. Prosecutor Willebrandt didn’t, and got the Supreme Court to squelch the 4th and 5th Amendments and declare evidence from tax returns admissible for prohibition and evasion liability in mid-May of 1927. German stocks immediately went sour. Neither entrenched party published a repeal or modification plank, and in 1928, Dry Hope Hoover beat Whiskey Al Smith 5 to 1. The small looter parties were obviously no help to freedom–their platforms called for coercion. 

The Increased Penalties Act foisted onto Hoover destroyed the economy when ex-prosecutor Willebrandt (yes, the same lady) explained in over 20 nationally syndicated papers how income tax asset forfeiture would be used to enforce Prohibition laws. Federal Reserve bank balances also began dropping as soon as Willebrandt got the Supreme Court to scrap the Bill of Rights and use the income tax–copied from Karl’s Manifesto of 1848–to enforce prohibition. 

No surprise here. The addition of that same communist manifesto plank to a tariff bill in 1894–in violation of the Constitutional prohibition of capitation taxes–so completely destroyed the economy that the Supreme Court had to strike it down the following year in order to have banks at which to cash their own paychecks. When was the last time you saw or hear tell of this partially concealed newspaper story?

1 in 1000 blurred illegible

Druggan, Lake Indicted by U.S. as Tax Dodgers 14MAR1928–Markets panic

Moreover, the income-tax-as-bludgeon decision in US v Sullivan immediately coincided with a German bourse crash, while French stock exchanges also began falling for years to come. Markets went haywire when Druggan and Lake were grabbed by Internal Revenuers mid-March, 1928. The Liberal Party formed in 1930, drew up a wet plank which the Dems accepted with tears of gratitude, then won five consecutive elections while battling the National Socialist government Hoover’s 1931 Moratorium foisted onto Germany.

The outcome of that election was FDR beat Dry Hope Hoover 11 to 1, but the collapsing economy–officially unexplained–had opened the floodgates increasing communist party growth in These United States by a factor of ten by the time Ayn Rand formulated the Non-Aggression Agreement. 

Only by keeping the American people confused about Prohibition and The Crash have the subsidized media managed to keep voters mesmerized by subsidized Republicans who deny being fascist and subsidized Democrats who deny being communist. Then again, that’s what the Nixon law of 1971 pays them to do. Understanding how these looters wreck your retirement savings, then voting Libertarian to let them know the jig is up; that’s the road to recovery. Doing the right thing–using your leveraged LP spoiler vote to change bad laws–is winning. It’s your decision.

LP candidate meets the press-gang

Like nearly all actual libertarians I was thrilled to see Jo Jorgensen beat Das Boothead, Angry Shellshocked Vet, Hanging Judge Dred and other uninspiring contestants. And it is a pity that a goofy voting system kept her from having Jacob Hornberger as the competent Vice-Presidential candidate she and I preferred.(link) But her first “friendly” LPTV interview could have gone better. 

Jo agreeing with prohibitionist characterizations? (link)

So now what we have is a community of poor people, because the government put them all in one place, where they can’t help each other, and guess what’s the only way you can drive a Mercedes? The only way you can drive a Mercedes is if you sell drugs. So now, what the government has created is an enclosed community, without fathers, and the only role model is the drug dealer, who’s got the, the great jewelry and the Mercedes. And now we’ve got a criminal as the role model. It is just tragedy what the government has done to motivation and incentive.

So… prohibition scofflaws are bad people who buy fossil-guzzlers from The Accursed Hun? Contrast THAT with what HL Mencken said about “drug” dealers back when light beer was a hard time felony

What is needed, obviously, is a new hero for the infantry of the land, for if one is not quickly supplied there is some danger that the boys will begin admiring Y.M.C.A. secretaries, crooked members of the Cabinet and lecturers on sex hygiene. In this emergency I nominate the bootlegger not, of course, the abject scoundrel who peddles bogus Scotch in clubs and office buildings, but the dashing, romantic, defiant fellow who brings the stuff up from Bimini. He is the true heir, not only of the old-time Indian fighters and train-robbers, but also of the tough and barnacled deep-water sailors, now no more. He faces the perils of the high seas in a puny shallop, and navigates the worst coast in the world in contempt of the wind and storm. Think of him lying out there on wild nights in winter, with the waves piling mountain-high and the gale standing his crazy little craft on her beam! Think of him creeping in in his motorboat on Christmas Eve, risking his life that the greatest of Christian festivals may be celebrated in a Christian and respectable manner! …

This brave lad is not only the heir of Jesse James and Ned Buntline; he is also the heir of John Hancock and all of the other heroes who throttled the accursed Hun in 1776. All the most gallant among them were smugglers, and in their fragile craft they brought in not only rum but also liberty. The Revolution was not only against the person of the Potsdam tyrant, George III; it was also, and especially, against harsh and intolerable laws the worst of them the abhorrent Stamp Act. But was the Stamp Act worse than Prohibition? I leave it to any fair man. Prohibition, in fact, is a hundred times as foul, false, oppressive and tyrannical. (link)

Quick to learn, however, our candidate gave a much better account of herself before the Public Brainwashing System interrogator over at Nationalsocialist Public Radio: 

SIMON: I’ve got to ask you about your running mate. His name is Spike Cohen. He calls himself an anarchist. He says he’s running to troll the system. He has a platform that promises, as I understand it, free ponies and a Waffle House on every corner.

JORGENSEN: I believe you are reciting the presidential platform of one of my competitors who lost, and Spike is now on my team. And so no, that’s not our platform.

SIMON: Well, it’s not your platform. You mean – are you saying Spike Cohen never said that?

JORGENSEN: What I’m saying is now that Spike Cohen has joined my team, we’ve got a combined platform that is mine. (link)

Already Jo is deftly coping with the humiliation of having a communist anarchist impostor thrust on her campaign by machinations of the Anschluss Caucus.(link) Good work!

Libertarian Party nominates communist anarchist

With friends like communist anarchists...

Anarchists infiltrate and sabotage the LP.org

With the LP increasing its vote share by an additional 80% per year, it would be silly to expect the trillionaire looter kleptocracy to sit back and let that continue. Last election’s finalists included an overt Republican warmonger explicitly rejecting the Non Aggression Pledge required for party membership, several non-entities and Gary Johnson. Gary’s pro-choice nomination netted us 4 million votes, which multiplied his previous anti-choice outcome by 328%.

WINNING!

Pro-choice LP candidate on a good platform


Delegates had the presence of mind to pick the first female presidential candidate backed by an honest party. Hopefully Jo is not a stealth Phyllis Schaffly. So far so good.

Among the losers were Vermin Boothead, the image of a skid row infiltrator, and his for-veep sidekick, a communist anarchist answering to Spike Cohen.(link) Cohen’s candidate statement is:

I understand that the Platform is an attempt to compromise between different positions and I completely respect that, but as an individual candidate my policy is anarchy.

Anarchy, like socialism is a synonym for communism and vice-versa, and has been for the past century. As soon as the Libertarian Party formed, conservatives promptly tarbrushed libertarians as anarchists. Democrats recalled the 1932 campaign, in which Republicans intimated that liberals favoring relegalization of beer were communist sympathisers.(link) Democrats were at the time being engulfed by the 700% increase in communist membership brought on by the Hoover Crash and Depression.(link) Today’s anarchist message is unilateral disarmament and surrender in violation of the Second Amendment.(link) The Second Amendment definitely applies to nuclear weapons and antimissile systems. (link)

Anti-defense street people non-voter lobby

What Republicans and other Socialists want voters to associate with the Libertarian Party

No surprise then that the Bernie bro does NOT support any version of the Libertarian Party platform. His albatrossing of Jo smells a lot like a sore loser caucus attempt to tarbrush the campaign with communist associations–in the middle of a germ war pandemic. After all, their footwear-headwear Wavy Gravy impersonator failed to associate us with inmates of the State Home for the Bewildered and repeal of the Second Amendment.(link)

The delegate selection process needs to be examined as sternly as the screening of saboteurs injecting nonsense into the platform. Spike is vote repellent just as girl-bullying antichoice mystics foisted on us by Republicans are vote repellent. The fewer spoiler votes the LP earns, the faster the Kleptocracy will sentence people to thousands of years in prison–the ones it does not kill outright in no-knock raids against plant leaves. (link

Platformista for life?

Is this what writes your platform now?

Infiltrating whack jobs into the LP.org costs us law-changing spoiler votes. This literally helps the looters rob, imprison and murder people. We have the Mises Caucus to thank for this. Remember that name when our vote count drops to under one percent again.

Send money to your state and local LP and support their candidates. Let the communist party support the sold-out national LP and replace its staff with Bank of China bureaucrats until national party saboteurs can be rooted out.

Clear libertarian principles

The 1972 Libertarian Party Statement of Principles is far and away the best such presentation anywhere today. But the clearer we make it the less chance there is for regrettable misinterpretation. The fallacy of equivocation is the assignment of different meanings to a term, usually by accident or oversight. The word in question, however, is the noun form of “right” or “rights” the thing we seek to defend. Here is the correct usage, in which a right is an ethical claim to freedom of action: 


We hold that each individual has the right to exercise sole dominion over his own life, and has the right to live his life in whatever manner he chooses, so long as he does not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live their lives in whatever manner they choose.

Compare that with Thomas Jefferson’s phrasing: 

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed

Jefferson makes a clear distinction between rights and powers. Here is an LP rendering Jefferson could improve by editing: 

Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. 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.

Clearly, this version of a “right” is at best a legitimized power or a deontological arrogation of coercive privilege, and conservatives, fascists, socialists and communists delight in misattributing those meanings to “rights,” just as gleefully as they blur the distinctions between freedom and coercion.

A right is a moral claim to freedom of action was drummed into our UTEXAS Ethics classes by tenured Prof Tara Smith, who dared us to refute it. The definition is consistent with most of our criminal code, Constitution and Declaration. If a right is a claim to freedom (absence of coercion) it can hardly be retasked into a political provision for the execution of convicts, belligerent criminals or enemy combatants, all of which mean the exercise of political power. Even in classical terms, political power in social sciences is the capacity to see to the physical restraint of men, hopefully men who have abdicated their claim to freedom by aggressing against others.

Physics according to the Hog of Steel

Prof. W. Warthog, PhilbertD.


By analogy with freshman physics, where force times distance is work, and the rate at which work is done is power, political power is the same, with the caveat that since the exercise of physical restraint typically involves harmful and often deadly force, the rate at which that sort of work can be done is people incapacitated/killed per unit of time. Look at comparisons of military force and they are measured and expressed in those terms. So if we want to keep clear the distinction between the exercise of individual rights and exercise of the physical restraint States are tasked with using to secure those rights, we ought to resist blurring the distinction.

On the practical side, the change ought not to cost us any votes. I expect that the added clarity will better attract the support of anyone we could ever hope to attract. Even if the suggestion undergoes defenestration, I would then turn to attempting to replace the equivocated “right” with “legal standing”, “authorized authority” or some other, more appropriate construction. Even the “right” to kill in self defense is only a sloppy expression of the special, often regrettable, unintended and unfortunate case of the freedom or right to act in self defense in situations so fluid and dangerous that a jury might agree that the fatal outcome could be justified in a court of law or court-martial. Nicholas Sarwark is more qualified to expound on that collocation.

Suppose the original idea was to deliberately misuse “right” as a venomous barb on what amounts to a criticism of (imputed) wrongs we hope to right. Then I beg leave to suggest the barb was way too subtle for the opening statements intended to enlist support for us. As a joke it does not translate well. Right this minute there are 20 other countries looking to us as exemplars for the drafting of platforms for advancement of rights and minimization of coercion—even if less than instantaneous. Examining just a few of the “constitutions” those people have to work under makes one appreciate the advantage of a Constitution smaller than 8000 words.

This language is in the original platform, which I cherish and defend, yet would not hesitate to rescue from error. I have always admired Hospers and Nolan and would argue the same point to them. This is something no later platform committee can be blamed for, yet its importance is so fundamental (especially when you contemplate expressing it in other languages), that I feel obligated to advance this suggestion. I of course welcome the most vigorous attacks on its supporting logic and rhetorical usefulness.

I move that the expression be reexamined and incorrect iterations of the word “right” be replaced with “political power” something more appropriate for the description of even the most salutary government coercion. If that motion fails, I would move that the incorrect specimens be placed in quotes.
