Nazi Snowflakes then and now

Nazis outside of Syracuse

See original newspaper story (link)

Google News Archive contains the Spartanville Herald-Journal report of German Ambassador Dieckhoff getting all bent out of shape over former U.S. Ambassador William Dodd’s insensitive and hurtful comments on Hitler having his enemies rounded up and shot. As a private American citizen, Dodd could say anything he pleased. The story ran on 15JAN1938. An American comedian is said to have been arrested by National Socialists for a Berlin nightclub quip that most dictators jail their enemies; but Hitler jails his friends!

But that was then and this is now and America, right? Not so fast! At Syracuse University, according to Reason Magazine, The Tab Syracuse, a social media account that covers Syracuse University news, posted a photo of a syllabus that references the coronavirus as both the “Wuhan flu” and “Chinese Communist Party Virus.”(link) Here again, nothing hurts socialism like the truth leaking out.(link)

You can test this theory by describing a school owned and coercively operated by any level of government as a “government school” in the presence of intellectuals of the looter persuasion. The descriptor is objectively accurate, yet collectivist programming requires hotly riposting with the false belief that coercion is voluntary and that “The” government is “the” people–unless the wrong party is elected.

Oddly, the most strenuously worked up are the weak-minded derivative socialists divided along religious lines. “Right” conservatives wish they had the fortitude of Hitler, Franco, Mussolini and Moseley, while “Left” progressives pine for the decisiveness of Bellamy, Howells, London, Browder, Reed, Lenin, Mao and Marx. Today’s Bushes, Romney, Christie and Palins are just as insipid and tentative as Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi and Sanders compared to the real thing in the bottom square.

The yellow streak

The yellow streak seeks to parcel out coercion

To recognize that a communist dictatorship released a germ warfare agent on the planet is thoughtcrime pure and simple.(link) When the Soviet communist dictatorship next door allowed an unnoticed Xenon buildup to explode and ignite a  power reactor with no containment powering a military radar, looter newspapers knew better than to even hint of such an event even as fallout triggered radiation alarms all over the globe.(link) Yet the folks triggered and upset by the thought the communist virus may have been a germ weapon are just as upset by mention of the cover-up. (link)

Objectivists and libertarians are no less consistent in the defense of freedom than are communists and fascists in their insistence on coercion. Only the confused, cowardly or indecisive seek to compromise on a Guyana Kool-Ade cocktail blending free speech with censorship. Why not take a stand and cast a highly-leveraged law-changing spoiler vote for freedom and categorically against coercion? Why not send a message on principles instead of paranoia and personalities?

The Two Minutes Hate

 

It was nearly eleven hundred, and in the Records Department, where Winston worked, they were dragging the chairs out of the cubicles and grouping them in the centre of the hall opposite the big telescreen, in preparation for the Two Minutes Hate.

Winston was just taking his place in one of the middle rows when someone he knew by sight, but had never spoken to, came unexpectedly into the room. It was a girl whom he often passed in the corridors. He did not know her name, but he knew that she worked in the Fiction Department. She was a bold-looking girl, of about twenty-seven, with straight hair, a tanned face, and swift, athletic movements. A narrow scarlet sash, emblem of the Junior Anti-Sex League, was wound several times round the waist of her overalls, just tightly enough to bring out the shapeliness of her hips.

Winston had disliked her from the very first moment of seeing her. He knew the reason. It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy. But this particular girl gave him the impression of being more dangerous than most. Once when they passed in the corridor she gave him a quick sidelong glance which seemed to pierce right into him and for a moment had filled him with black terror. The idea had even crossed his mind that she might be an agent of the Woke Police.

The next moment a hideous, grinding speech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room. It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck. The Hate had started.

As usual, the face of Donald Trump, the Enemy of the People, had flashed on to the screen. There were hisses here and there among the audience. The little sandy-haired woman gave a squeak of mingled fear and disgust. The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Trump was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor, the earliest defiler of the Party’s purity. All subsequent crimes against the Party, all treacheries, acts of sabotage, heresies, deviations, sprang directly out of his campaigning.

Winston’s diaphragm was constricted. He could never see the face of Trump without a painful mixture of emotions. Trump was delivering his usual venomous attack upon the doctrines of the Party–an attack so exaggerated and perverse that a child should have been able to see through it, and yet just plausible enough to fill one with an alarmed feeling that other people, less level-headed than oneself, might be taken in by it. He was abusing Big Biden, he was denouncing the dictatorship of the Party, he was demanding the withdrawal of protesters from Portland, he was advocating freedom of speech, freedom of the Press, freedom of assembly, license to invade, he was crying hysterically that America had been betrayed–and all this in slow monosyllabic speech which was a sort of parody of the habitual style of the orators of the Party.

Before the Hate had proceeded for thirty seconds, uncontrollable exclamations of rage were breaking out from half the people in the room. The self-satisfied bland face on the screen was too much to be borne: besides, the sight or even the thought of Trump produced fear and anger automatically. But what was strange was that although Trump was hated and despised by everybody, although every day and a thousand times a day, on platforms, on the telescreen, in newspapers, in books, his theories were refuted, smashed, ridiculed, held up to the general gaze for the pitiful rubbish that they were–in spite of all this, his influence never seemed to grow less. Always there were fresh dupes waiting to be seduced by him. A day never passed when racists with green teeth acting under his directions were not unmasked by the Woke Police. He was the commander of a vast shadowy army, an underground network of confederates dedicated to the overthrow of the State. White Supremacy, its name was supposed to be. There were also whispered stories of a terrible book, a compendium of all the heresies, of which Trump was the author and which circulated clandestinely here and there. It was a book without a title.

In its second minute the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening mocking voice that came from the screen. In a lucid moment Winston found that he was shouting with the others and kicking his heel violently against the rung of his chair. The dark-haired girl behind Winston had begun crying out ‘Racist! Racist! Racist!’ and suddenly she picked up a heavy Newspeak dictionary and flung it at the screen. The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge-hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic.

And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp. Thus, at one moment Winston’s hatred was not turned against Trump at all, but, on the contrary, against Big Biden, the Party, and the Woke Police; and at such moments his heart went out to the lonely, derided heretic on the screen, sole guardian of truth and sanity in a world of lies. And yet the very next instant he was at one with the people about him, and all that was said of Trump seemed to him to be true. At those moments his secret loathing of Big Biden changed into adoration, and Big Biden seemed to tower up, an invincible, fearless protector, standing like a rock against the plagues of Asia, and Trump, in spite of his isolation, his helplessness, and the doubt that hung about him, seemed like some sinister enchanter, capable by the mere power of his voice of wrecking the structure of civilization.

The Hate rose to its climax. But in the same moment, drawing a deep sigh of relief from everybody, the hostile figure melted into the face of Big Biden, white-haired, clean-shaven, full of power and mysterious calm, and so vast that it almost filled up the screen.(link)  Nobody heard what Big Biden was saying. It was merely a few words of encouragement, the sort of words that are uttered in the din of battle, not distinguishable individually but restoring confidence by the fact of being spoken. Then the face of Big Biden faded away again, and instead the three slogans of the Party stood out in bold capitals:

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE
FUND RED COMMUNITIES
KILL THE 1%

Nobody mentioned the young, educated candidate for the Libertarian Party,. Jo Jorgensen.  Jorgensen, however, was already an UNPERSON. She did not exist: she had never existed, and her party was now in its 49th year of non-existence. It’s vote share was now increasing 80% per year. Before long tripping would be decriminalized and conscription abolished forever.

Germ warfare and China

Germ War Genocide prophet

Socialist lecturer 1907

The current viral pandemic looks a little like the bacteriological war designed by an American communist. The story dates back to the battered, bowed and bloodied Quing Dynasty, a few years before the 1911 revolution.(link) It was written before the Celestials were invaded by Japan, then later degenerated into a socialist dictatorship. The American communist was Jack London, author of Alaskan Wolf and Dog stories of the gold rush days, stories our parents were pleased to see us devour in childhood. London was an admirer of all variants of “the German philosophy” and bore bitter hatred for merciless, remorseless laissez faire. Nothing less than the initiation of deadly force made any sense to that socialist orator and author.

Comrade Jack London revealed to a surprised America that “The Japanese is not an individualist.” This in The Yellow Peril, written back when racial collectivism was completely fashionable–at least among the pukka sahib.(link) Our eugenicist Republican President had opined that American women were duty-bound to reproduce. To think otherwise, according to Theodore Roosevelt, was “race suicide.” (link)  

The Unparalleled Invasion was written shortly after The Yellow Peril. In it “all countries” attack a relatively peaceful China with germ warfare agents. The story was written as sci-fi predicting the distant future year 1976. So if the Chinese controlled the World Health Organization and took over FATF to wreck the banking system as a bioweapons attack kicked in, they got the idea from America’s own Wild Dog looter.(link) Go to gutenberg.org and find Jack London’s The Strength of The Strong, where the story starts on page 60.(link)

Jack London prediction realized

1932 cartoon matches Jack London’s 1904 predictions

Jack London was one with the prohibitionist communists urging passage of the income tax, prohibition and proletarian Senate election Amendments. Objectivists may feel a sense of schadenfreude to learn that the author of “Love of Life,” supposedly committed suicide in 1916; his half-brother Louis London was said by police to have shot himself in suicide in January of 1965.

Is Freedom Prime?

What brand of socialism for you today?

Three of the four categories are Socialist, hence normal and mainstream by looter standards

The Nolan chart made visible the thing that separates Fabian Socialists from doi-disant “conservatives.” But for good measure it also underscored a crucial point on which Libertarians and Totalitarians agree. I refer to the divisibility of freedom.

Biblical mythology tells of an unelected monarch surrounded by concubines and other women and called upon to settle disputes–such as who a child belongs to. By applying the standard of simplistic egalitarian fairness and offering to sever the kid asunder, he prompted the real mother to realize her child could not be divided and live. Her child was prime, indivisible. Its individual life was to her a value, and in acting on those premises she inadvertently identified herself as the true mother.

The pansy “left” and religious “right” reproach each other for hypocrisy or conflicting premises. But listen closely and you discover they are simply quibbling over how best to chop freedom to pieces. “Both” agree on lack of value, vagueness, equivocation, indecision and cowardice as virtues. Both value altruism, albeit distorted by meaningless modifiers. Both seek to send others (tax gougers, doctor killers, thugs with guns) to threaten, coerce and kill if victims need sacrificing.(link)

Both the lay and mystical looters understand that to impress onlookers with the benefits of yielding to social pressure and intimidation, some must be killed as examples. All in the three squares defining those who seek to divide or destroy freedom are willfully blind to any possible alternative to the initiation of force. They also struggle to evade the fact that there is a third choice. Only by casting a libertarian spoiler vote can you confront them with their own self-deception.(link)

Totalitarian communists and fascists cling tenaciously to the revealed faith that coercion is indivisible–so much so that any talk of watering it down with effete compromise is to them not simply heresy, but actual criminal menacing. To them it goes without saying that the very suggestion that there is something wrong with the initiation of force justifies the initiation of deadly force.(link)

Fascism or socialist communism? What'll it be?

1939: Religious Fascism and Socialist Communism, either-or, no 3rd choice, it CAN happen here


Actual libertarians (not Anarcho-communist infiltrators) are no less convinced that freedom is indivisible. They at best pity the conflicted, indecisive looters-mislabeled-as-liberals and mystical bigots unable to settle on whom to sacrifice first for the common “good.” The fundamental conviction–the one that makes a difference–is what to protect from division: life, reward and freedom? or coercion–which requires aggressive killing in order to be taken seriously enough to intimidate the survivors?

Libertarians (in the top square) seek to protect freedom from division. The bottom square is cluttered with communo-fascist socialists–all of them committed to making coercion total, indivisible, all-encompassing–while they pretend to be in the left and right squares. Inability to decide on divisibility is what clutters the sidewalks with the indecisive left-and-right whose votes elect looter parties to rob us. Please listen closely to what the so-called “left,” “right” and totalitarian looters say about each other, then decide whether to participate in their blood feuds or vote Libertarian.

ANTIFA 1923

Same old same old...

Fascist socialism versus less religious socialism

Here we have a perfect example of history rhyming. The article could pass for something published in today’s fake news press in the State of Washington or Oregon. The story is in the future tense. One gang of violent altruists promises to “ferret out” agitators no less altruistic and violent. Details are not explicit, but interwar papers were full of violent confrontations between these two camps of socialist thought, both of which agree on the desirability and effectiveness of the initiation of force.(link

So what progress have we made since 1923? Eugenic prohibitionism no longer shoots people over beer unless they are behind the wheel. Many plant leaves could, if again left alone, offer an alternative to alcohol now relied on as a source of excise tax money that buys votes for political parties. Roving bands of communists (relabeled as anarchists) today seek smaller bands of more pious socialists to bat and bully, as in 1923.(link

The only real difference is that since 1972 voters have at times been able to cast ballots for the Libertarian Party. Because the LP platform calls for reducing reliance on aggression, emphasizing individual rights instead, those votes pressure kleptocracy parties into making their platform planks less coercive. The net result is repeated defeat of the more violent of two looter candidates. This causes predatory politicians to repeal cruel laws and water down violent platform planks in hopes of poaching away enough libertarian spoiler votes to again point a gun at your head.(link)

The chart below shows communist party membership in the wake of two prohibition-related depressions. Prohibition crashed the economy in 1920, was nullified by buying off and shooting agents (hence the recovery), then returned with flaming fanaticism after the Klan defected and helped elect the Republican party in 1928.(link)

Looting begets Looters

Communist membership rose after Republican prohibitionism causes a recession. Now it’s LP membership that rises whenever looter fanaticism wrecks the economy.

In a larger context, the same policy changes should reduce the reliance by subsidized parties on asset-forfeiture prohibitionism and economy-wrecking confiscation policies. This is because voters are now running to the Libertarian Party. Back in 1923 their only alternative to the entrenched kleptocracy was some sort of communo-socialist party.(link

Doomsday Books and survivalism

No Third Party, Watch Big Brother!

The real Coronavirus… government-controlled teevee

Now that the communist dictatorship on mainland China has polluted the planet with yet another plague, people huddled in shelters have time for reading–as opposed to the screechings of kleptocracy teevee. One of the most apropos and entertaining novels for the times is The Doomsday Book by Connie Willis.(link) In it you will learn the intimate details of the bubonic plague the Far East exported to Europe and the British Isles back in the good old days before global warming hysteria replaced burning at the stake. The books downloads to any cellphone, tablet or Kindle device without your having to open the door. Due perhaps to this diabolical form of miraculous delivery, the novel lacks the Imprimatur and Nihil Obstat of the Vatican, but it could nevertheless save your life. Herbal Antivirals by Stephen Buhner is also practically relevant to the current crisis.(link)

A scientist-publisher I worked for back in 1982 had me ship out boxloads of Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson Kearny.(link) Saboteurs stole the heavy boxes of Golem Press books from the postal system, so I had to fill out insurance claim forms for replacement shipments.(link) Cresson Kearny developed his survival skills during war, famine and pestilence in China, and except for blast waves and fallout, many of the survival skills needed to shelter without the added aggravation of starvation, disease or vitamin deficiency are clearly explained with pictures and arrows. 

Pat Frank was the pen name of Harry Hart Frank, author of Alas Babylon, a tale of Eisenhower-Nixon-era nuclear war, when cities were the smallest things bombers could reliably target.(link) Yet much of the aftermath is complicated less by fallout than to the very anarchy communist infiltrators assure us is desirable–just not for them. The rebuilding of civilization without hindrance by a central government is the backdrop for this most interesting and topically relevant story. 

A mathematician and an engineer joined forces to write Lucifer’s Hammer, by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.(link) Here the same natural disaster that has befallen Earth many times in the past returns in the form of a comet impact unleashing all four of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Survival without supermarkets amid cannibalistic collectivism is a test of human ingenuity that rewards preparedness and familiarity with the facts of scientific reality. 

Most of these books were written in an age in which altruist collectivism in its communo-fascist variants–complete with known slavery, famine, death camps, institutionalized torture and disappearance and the initiation of deadly force–was considered preferable to the prevailing mercantilist mixed economy by many organizations and individuals. Among these we still see the Union of Concerned “Scientists,” Physicians for Social “Responsibility” and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War through Preemptive Surrender to totalitarianism. These vectors, now joined by real-life versions of the State Science Institute in Atlas Shrugged, remain a stench in the nostrils of humankind.(link)

Fallen Angels by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, and Michael Flynn is a book about these myrmidons of messianic martyrdom who even today still seek to ban electricity and appease the gods of Carbon Tax Collectivism by demanding that “we” grovel at the altar of parasitical Pseudoscience.(link) Most of these books are also available in audiobook format. Last but not least…

Dry Killers, 2020

PERP NOT SHOWN, REDACTED

FEDERAL Prosecutor initiates deadly force against wife, self. (link)

Dry Killers was the term The Chicago Tribune used to describe government agents and their hangers-on who routinely killed unarmed boys and men in the 1920s and 30s. Anyone who thinks this is a prohibition phenomenon that’s over and done with might care to explain today’s news–or news of the past century.

Federal Prohibition and Second Amendment Kristallnacht infringement mouthpiece Timothy Delgado turned up dead just north of Folsom Prison in California, where police say he apparently killed his wife, then himself. Whether the reporting is accurate or not, it is typical of fanatical prohibitionism–which after the complete economic collapse of 1929-1933 shifted from beer, wine and Demon Rum to coercion over plant leaves and their extracts. The other big change is that big shots at the Chicago Tribune had a lot invested in alcohol precursor chemicals during national prohibition. They evidently have no such stake in Post-Nixon avatars of Satan. Fanatics infiltrating federal agencies, on the other hand, most certainly have a serious stake in the initiation of deadly force.(link)

Tribune reporters back then tracked down and reported on every storeowner, housewife and boat operator murdered in cold blood by prohibition agents. Nowadays such events are typically reported only by Reason Magazine writers. Prohibition killings are masked as “resisting arrest” and other such euphemistic camouflage, and a way is in every case found to minimize their impact on public perception. But America was not always so like a Christian National Socialist Democracy.(link)

Chicago was then and is now home to the largest glucose corn sugar plant on planet Earth. Yeast and sugar companies bankrolled bootleggers who installed refinery-grade continuous stills in bankrupt three-story mansions after The Crash. These outfits could afford to repay the political State in its own coin. This actually happened twice. In 1921-22 civilian posse comitatus‘ hunted down killers with badges as the economy collapsed, then a truce was established. The economic effect can be seen in this graph for hops, a precursor plant used to brew Beelzebub’s beer.(link

Nullification of felony beer prohibition laws

The 1923 Gentleman’s Agreement shifted enforcement away from beer until March 2, 1929, after which the economy lasted another 6 months

The truce broke down when the Klan defected from the Dems in 1928 and helped elect Herbert Clark Hoover. Prohibition related murders–including the killing of federal agents–immediately filled all the papers, and tell-all éxposé books appeared right after the Crash–itself caused by withdrawals of money from fractional-reserve banks to avoid federal asset-forfeiture confiscation. That is a little-appreciated aspect of a fractional-reserve banking system after a looter takeover. Here is an excerpt from Before and After Prohibition, a 1930 compendium by Maryland Senator Millard Tydings:

ONE of the most shocking results of the ten years of effort to enforce national prohibition is the long record of killings by prohibition and other Federal law enforcement agents. Even among some of the strongest advocates of the “noble experiment,” there have been widespread expressions of revolt at this bloody spectacle. Information regarding many of these killings has occupied much space in the public press, and editorial comment upon them has been most denunciatory. Yet they continue—apparently an almost inevitable accompaniment of the enforcement of this law.

Senator Tydings managed to uncover some 1300 suppressed killings committed by prohibition agents that were kept out of the papers and seldom discussed–including cases of federal gangs gunning down each other! Here’s a fratricidal example from Tydings’ collection: 

George Ball and William Porter, State agents, killed in battle with Federal Revenue officers at Camp Creek, West Virginia, June 20, 1925. (Each band of dry raiders thought the others were bootleggers, and they opened fire simultaneously.)

So this pattern of superstition, pseudoscience and political asset-forfeiture looting requires the initiation of force. This in turn requires killing people so that the law is taken seriously. Who advocates these murders? The answer is politicians who, like Germany’s NSDAP, represent Christian altruism–except for the part about how “thou shalt not kill.”(link

Thus, mystical collectivist cheapening of gratuitous murder stimulates demand for revenge and counterexamples, and the sort of agents and prosecutors attracted to this line of work do not even value their own lives, much less those of others. Remember this when next you hear one of God’s Own Prohibitionists seeking to pervert the Constitution and coerce women for “the unborn.” Just as Republican and Democrat prohibition fanatics cannot see “thou shalt not kill” in a book that does not condemn enjoyable substances, just so they cannot grasp “All Persons born” in the U.S. Constitution, or the absence, nay, denial of any federal authority for enactment of sumptuary laws.(link)

Incidentally, Millard Tydings was reelected over and over and served 44 years in the Senate.

Energy Egoism

Chattel slavery collectivism

Energy slaves or human bondage?

Much of the 20th Century was a struggle between the non-chattel slavery of collectivism and the liberation of humanity by bringing electric power into the service of production and survival. But electric power requires understanding of Faraday’s law and the Maxwell equations, which the looter intelligentzia eschew scornfully as egotistical hubris or worse: pulp science fiction!

Michael Faraday as Prometheus

A 1953 edition of Ayn Rand’s Anthem

Yet Rand’s predictions made after Herbert Hoover had comfortably ensconced Adolf Hitler into power over Germany–while Soviet and National Socialism closed in on  Poland–have come awkwardly true again.

Herbert Hoover, 1929, Anti-dog-eat-dog

Republican Prohibitionist fanatics

Hitler’s Anti-dog-eat-dog helper (link) shakes with Brezhnev’s ally in violating the Second Amendment (link)

Hoover speech to Chamber of Commerce conference, 12/5/1929: Much construction work had been postponed during the past few months by reason of the shortage of mortgage money due to the diversion of capital for speculative purposes.
 The third line of action has been to undertake through voluntary organization of industry the continuity and expansion of the construction and maintenance work of the country, so as to take up any slack in employment which arises in other directions. (…) This is a far cry from the arbitrary and dog-eat-dog attitude of the business world of some 30 or 40 years ago.  (Hoover 1929 1974 454-5) (link)

Translation: making beer a 5-year prison term felony with a fine of over half a million 2019 dollars just before my inauguration backfired. Asset-forfeiture of everything from ocean liners to homes, automobiles and bank & brokerage accounts caused money to flee the banking system after former prosecutor Willebrandt blew the whistle on how we do it in 21 newspapers in August. We now imitate German and Italian fascism make-work projects to disguise the damage caused by using revenue laws to enforce religious prohibition. Religious fascism is not a bit like the laissez-faire liberalism that kept America wealthy and free back when beer and coca wine were as legal as sea salt.

This speech was made the year Ayn Rand married Frank O’Connor. Here is the relevant page from the Presidential Papers of Herbert Hoover:

Brot un Arbeit! Gott Mitt Uns!

Asset-forfeiture prohibitionism chased money from banks, so no mortgages, no jobs, no individualism, no laissez-faire, no freedom!

Hoover (prohibition): “This is not dictation or interference by the government with business.”

Nixon (war on drugs): “I am not a crook!”

Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged): “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade …”
