Orwell and no Libertarian Party

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

Richard Gere look-alike

Henry Miller

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

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

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

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

Fascism, (n.) Religious socialism.

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

Death to godless commies!

God’s Own Dictator!

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

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

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

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

Why mystical conservatives hate liberals

"Crime is increasing."

“Steadily building a new race–“

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Religious fanatics encouraged to initiate force...

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

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

Legalize Peyote, LP.org

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Antichoice, then and now…

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

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

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

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

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

Socialism in Amerika and Germany

Socialists are, as usual, ticked off at The Don Jr. (Disclaimer: this blogger votes libertarian). By quoting a recent comment “both sides” disclose a disconnect between reality and their own brainwashing doled out in government schools.

Here’s the quote:

“You see the Nazi platform in the early 1930s and what was actually put out there, and you look at it compared to, like, the DNC platform of today, and you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar,’ to the point where it’s actually scary. To me, that was one of the most striking things I took from the movie because it’s the exact opposite that you’ve been told.” —Donald Trump Jr. on Dinesh D’Souza’s film “Death of a Nation”

Ayn Rand did the same thing back when Kennedy (D) defeated Richard Nixon (R). Random House refused to publish her essay pointing to the ominous parallels between the National Socialist platform penned by Hitler in 1920 and verbiage contained in the Democratic Party platform and JFK speeches. She fired that publisher.** By her lights, Goldwater’s Republican candidacy was sufficient proof that God’s Own Prohibitionists–whatever their other faults–were not out to exterminate Judaism to please the Lutherans and Catholics. In actual fact Goldwater was nominated because the Republican Party was certain the Dems would win that 1964 election, so the empty gesture cost them nothing.

Literate and rational persons who have read the National Socialist program Hitler penned in 1920, his 1924 Mein Kampf, or the 1933 Enabling Act speech to the Reichstag find religious conservative beliefs on just about every page. Germany was 98% Protestant and Catholic when Hitler took office amid applause. Big Pharma needed a belligerent madman to terrify foreign regulators seeking to curb German morphine exports and collect war reparations payments. If Germany’s political leader also frightened pharmaceutical competitors, so much the better. Hitler just happened to suit the purposes of military contractors and drug companies, and the crowds loved him.

It is a safe bet that neither Trump nor his competitors have ever read the NSDAP program which got the National Socialist party in power by 1933. Nazis, Democrats and Republicans all believe that altruism is good. They believe this not from fact, but because of a preacher invented approximately 1968 years ago by primitives writing in a language none of them can read or speak. The folk legend of an altruist purported to have been executed a century and a half earlier than the first mention of his existence suffices to establish altruism and sacrifice as the standard of value for all three parties.

Small wonder then that all three platforms are so similar. But the Democratic platform more closely resembles Norman Thomas’ christian socialism than Adolf Hitler’s version of the same thing. The Republican platform incorporates more German ideology and eugenics than does the Democratic version. But “both” parties (along with all the looter parties of Europe, Asia and Africa) seek to install themselves somewhere on a line extending from Stalinist international socialism on the “left” to Hitlerite nationalsocialism on the “right.” All parties based on altruism and the initiation of force seek to occupy the political predicament of Poland in 1939. The idea of measuring their published platforms’ demands for violence against individual rights and economic freedom on two intersecting axes shocks intellectuals of the looter persuasion.

The result is that large areas of Germany and Austria are even NOW evacuated because of bombs dropped there in the 1940s. Yet no one there understands that those bombs were dropped because of Germanys literal commitment to altruism, sacrifice and the initiation of force.

Orwell’s 1984 was a paean against cowardly acceptance of the Hitler-Stalin Pact on the part of British snobs. Its message is manifestly misunderstood by British and American readers just as the message of those bombs is evaded by Austrians and Germans. That situation is fast changing, thanks to the law-repealing power of Libertarian spoiler votes. Here is a hockey stick depicting the resurgence of reason and choice at the expense of superstition and force.

Republicans banned ALL birth control

The same Republican party that made misdemeanor light beer a federal felony in 1929 had already banned all forms of birth control and related speech since 1873 (when several Democratic States could not vote). Even mentioning condoms and diaphragms was still illegal until after Herbert Hoover was defenestrated and the repeal of prohibition laws began in earnest.

The Confederacy lost the war, was occupied by federal troops, and its representatives barred from standing for office or voting. The result of this first voter suppression gambit was that the Republican candidate got 214 electoral votes to the Democrat’s 80. Nearly 3/4 of the votes that count were interpreted, with whoops of joy, as a mixed-economy mandate for the victorious coalition of Christians and Socialists in November 1868.

Coercive Religious Conservative, T. Roosevelt Era

The parent act was passed as a postal regulation in 1872, which empowered former Union solder Anthony Comstock (author of Frauds Exposedan attack on free-speech Liberals), to decide what could be sent by mail and burn what couldn’t. “Liberals” at the time meant social libertarians bent on repealing censorship laws passed in 1865 with the Union victory. Here is the real 1872 parent law that allowed the infiltrator into the postal monopoly. The 1873 amendment made this bad law much worse.

With that crashing foot in the door, the rest of the world horrified and the economy in a deep depression, the law quickly got much worse.

Here is the text of the Comstock law.
March 3, 1873, 42nd Congress, page 1873, amending the already harsh and lengthy postal monopoly law of June 1872, which allowed Comstock himself to meddle in the mail service and begin book burning as an American tradition….

CHAP. CCLVIII—An Act for the Suppression of Trade in and Circulation of, obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral use. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That whoever within the District of Columbia or any of the Territories of the United States, or other place within the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States, shall sell, or lend, or give away, or in any manner to exhibit, or shall offer to sell or to lend, or to in any manner exhibit or shall in any way publish or offer to publish in any manner, or shall have in his possession, for any such purpose or purposes, any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing or other representation, figure or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article of an immoral nature, or any drug or medicine, or any article whatever for the prevention of conception, or for causing unlawful abortion, or shall advertize the same for sale, or shall write or print, or cause to be written or printed, any card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement, or notice of any kind, stating when, where, how, or of whom, or by what means, any of the articles in this section hereinbefore mentioned, can be purchased or obtained, or shall manufacture, draw, or print, or in any wise make any of such articles, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof in any court of the United States, or in any Territory or place within the exclusive jurisdiction within the United States, where such misdemeanor shall have been committed; and on conviction thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor in the penitentiary for not less than six months nor more than five years for each offense, or fined not less than $100 nor more than $2000, with costs of court.

SEC 2. That section one hundred and forty eight of the act to revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to the Post-office Department, approved June eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, be amended to read as follows:
“Sec. 148. That no obscene, lewd, or lascivious book, pamphlet, picture, paper, print, or other publication of an indecent character, or any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring abortion, or any article or thing intended or adapted for any indecent or immoral use or nature, or any written or printed card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement or notice of any kind giving information, directly or indirectly, where, how, of whom, or by what means either of the things before mentioned may be obtained or made, nor any letter upon the envelope of which, or postal-card upon which indecent or scurrilous epithets may be written or printed, shall be carried in the mail, and any person who shall knowingly deposit, or cause to be deposited, for mailing or delivery, any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, or any notice or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, or any notice, or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, and any person who, in pursuance of any plan or scheme for disposing of any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things shall take, or cause to be taken, from the mail or any such letter or package, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall, for every offense, be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not less than one year nor more than ten years, or both, in the discretion of the judge.”

[$5000 would in 1873 buy 221 oz of gold, today worth over $295,000]

SEC. 3. That all persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, except the drugs hereinbefore-mentioned when imported in bulk, and not put up for any of the purposes before mentioned; and all such prohibited articles in the course of importation shall be detained by the officer of customs, and proceedings taken against the same under section five of this act.

[asset forfeiture provision]

SEC. 4. That whoever, being an officer, agent, or employee of the government of the United States shall knowingly aid or abet any person engaged in the violation of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction thereof, shall for every offense be punished as provided in section two of this act.

SEC 5. That any judge of any district or circuit court of the United States within the proper district, before whom complaint in writing of any violation of this act shall be made, to the satisfaction of such judge, and founded on knowledge or belief, and, if upon belief, setting forth the grounds of such belief, and supported by oath or affirmation by the complainant, may issue, conformably to the Constitution, a warrant, directing him to search for, seize and take possession of any such article or thing hereinbefore mentioned, and to make due and immediate return thereof, to the end that same may be condemned and destroyed by proceedings, which shall be conducted in the same manner as other proceedings in case of municipal seizure, and with the same right of appeal or writ of error: Provided, That nothing in this section shall be construed as repealing the one hundred and forty-eighth section of the act of which this act is amendatory, or to affect any indictments heretofore found for offenses against the same, but the said indictments may be prosecuted to judgment as if this section had not been enacted. APPROVED March 3, 1873.

Today the Prohibition party is reduced to pseudoscientific sputtering that Global Warming presents an “existential threat,” and proposes to transfer part of U.S. sovereignty to “other nations in mitigating its effects.” It also wails feebly against “anchor babies,” and decries the exercise of First Amendment rights by gays as “an abomination to God,” then advances the usual shibboleths calling for men with guns to ban plant leaves, betting, wine, beer, etc… Gone is the demand for a Constitutional Amendment to undo the Libertarian Roe v. Wade decision. Infiltrators have instead focussed on molding the Libertarian Party into a subsidiary copy of the original party that as of 1908 helped Socialists inject the communist manifesto income tax into the US constitution. The Prohibition party’s softened 2016 plank on birth control was:

We consider abortion to be morally repugnant. We will implement policies to minimize the number of abortions without infringing on the doctor/patient relationship and without thrusting government into family decisions about child rearing. Abortion procedures should not be funded by government.

The copy smuggled into the 2016 Libertarian Platform, to the discomfiture of women voters, runs:

Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.

Before the Roe v. Wade decision incorporated the Libertarian plank into jurisprudence, the Democrats and Republicans, content with the Comstock laws, had nothing to say about birth control. Then for 46 years Republicans and Prohibitionists yelped for an Amendment to override the Supreme Court. Today these anti-individualist looters stoop to infiltration, exploiting our resentment of the income tax they themselves imported from Germany, instead of calling for its repeal.  The prohibitionist-inspired straddle plank is an affront to self-ownership and individual rights and ought to be deleted entirely from the LP platform.

Suckering the Helpless

In These States, Altruist Germany and Czarist Russia there was a 97% consensus that the deadly force wielded by the Political State was precisely the thing to bring Succor to the Helpless.

The idea apparently originated about a century and a half into the Common Era. Stories were recorded of a Prophet who 150 years earlier brought cadavers back to the pink of health and ordered apostles to Give unto Caesar. That same prophet preached altruism in simultaneous translation into Glossolalian while multiplying bread and fishes as a sort of fiat currency for huge masses of worshipping admireres. Succoring the miserable with free stuff was the idea, and the loaves and fishes were evidently pirate copies of the originals. This cloning of free stuff (if that is the proper translation of what those primitive languages claimed had occurred nearly two centuries earlier) crashed and burned in collision with conservation of mass, energy, and momentum, principles of thermodynamics and selfish ideas about the value of ownlife rather than sacrifice for others.

The dilemma was resolved 18 centuries later in Russia and Germany along altruistic principles established by the likes of Marx, Kant and Luther as reinterpreted by Edward Bellamy and Jack London for export and retranslation back into German and Russian. Everybody suffered, and millions starved except the altruists whose bidding the men with guns obeyed. The Russian version discarded the Prophet of God part which German deontological dogma zealously preserved. Huge chemical companies provided the explosives required for the initiation of force and refined the patented poppy drugs sold to foreigners as a source of revenue.  Empires grew fat and their subjects literally worshipped the politicians, bishops and field-marshals.

If necessary at the sacrifice of our own lives

The Common Good Before The Individual Good

In America the mystical mythos was weaker and reverence for the Almighty Dollar much stronger. Mining company lobbyists convinced politicians to convert their gold and silver into coins and force distant consumers to pay the cost via tariff revenue. By the time inconvenient supply and demand considerations revealed how dumb an idea this had been, the mining corporations could buy and sell politicians like potatoes. These corporatepreneurs found among the disciples of Bellamy, Kant and Marx the useful voters they needed to keep that money faucet open. A weaker version of the European myth did the same thing: tax the helpless to pay brutes to tax them all the harder, with as many mock trials and executions as needed to overcome resistance. The biggest difference was that American piety and guilt over extermination of natives led to a prohibitionist reaction which contrasted with Germany’s exploitation of primitives, residents and foreigners with chemical drugs.

When these two systems came into conflict, intelligent persons fled in the direction of least coercion and nuclear weapons ended the war. Now would be a good time to ask ourselves whether ancient myths, dogma, charisma, mixed-economy entanglements and charisma are too sandy a foundation for a civilization that is free and not at war. The alternative, the relatively new experiment of individual rights, has been more successful than the European habits that have kept Europe and Asia in constant bloodbaths over the course of nineteen centuries. Yet the entrenched political parties that propose to write and enforce laws still think in terms of the wonderfulness of ancient dogma rather than the demonstrated value of individual rights. Suckering the helpless with free stuff taken from others by force may no longer be worth the risks. Leaving individuals free to help themselves has produced better results than the approaches that relied on initiation of force by men with guns.
