Tarl on Libertarian Immigration

Tarl Warwick offers news and information on the web, and does it better than the people I pay to inform me (like Reason Magazine). Here is his take on immigration policy.

With the LP platform committee bristling with more narcs, infiltrators and provocateurs than a sixties SDS rally, this sort of calm, commonsense convocation to use one’s brain is as apropos as all getout.

One thing needs to be background. We all realize that a right is an ethical claim to freedom of action, and that freedom itself is the absence of initiated coercion, not all that many appreciate the definition of government. This was clearly formulated and published in 1919 by mixed-economy statist Max Weber in Politics as a Vocation:

“Today, however, we have to say that a state is a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory. Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state.”–Max Weber

That Pythagoras was superstitious as a loon, or Einstein a nationalizing socialist looter says nothing about their theories. The communist looters who infiltrate the LP avoid mention of Weber, or of Ayn Rand’s take on the Weber definition. But less than a year after government was defined, Adolf Hitler, painter of churches, peasant girls and Madonnas with Baby Jesus, penned his National Socialist Labor Party platform packed full of the initiation of force and invasion and looting across OTHER people’s borders in the true spirit of altruism.

A country without political boundaries is a battlefield. Look at old newspapers with French, Canadian and British troops capturing and recapturing stinking cratered trenches and there you have the undefined borders that cause anarchist communists to heave sighs of stunned admiration. But remember, that was before 1945, the year nuclear weapons–designed to vanquish socialism and its allies–came of age. Nowadays nobody cares how many invading conscripts you are able to enslave.

The tug from below–spoiler votes!

Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista

Comrade Eric Arthur Blair–POUM

Civilized men flying overhead were trying to kill George Orwell as he composed some wartime essays, especially The Lion and The Unicorn (link) Every nation in Europe was run by men who deeply believed altruism–as formulated by the mythical Jesus and by Auguste Compte–to be a good thing, not at all causally connected with witch-sniffing, the rack, the guillotine, burning at the stake or book-burning.(link) These things did in fact invariably coincide, the way Crashes and Depressions coincided with making beer a federal felony to justify asset-forfeiture looting.

Bombs fell out of the sky as materialist altruists fought mystical altruists in deadly earnest, each convinced no non-altruist alternative could possibly exist–much like the United States and Brazil today. Orwell, a collectivist, trusted the judgment of the “common man,” from whom the blimps, toffs, dividend-drawers and plutocrats could learn plenty:

The nation is bound together by an invisible chain. At any normal time the ruling class will rob, mismanage, sabotage, lead us into the muck; but let popular opinion really make itself heard, let them get a tug from below that they cannot avoid feeling, and it is difficult for them not to respond. The left-wing writers who denounce the whole of the ruling class as ‘pro-Fascist’ are grossly over-simplifying.(1941)

So what is this tug from below that unavoidably makes itself felt? It is not violent demonstrations, or the Kremlin would be in DC. It is also not lobbying by “non-partisan” single-issue groups. Not only are they castrated by laws ordering them not to influence elections, they have a financial stake in the continued existence of the hobgoblin they pretend to battle against. One clue is in the tug from above: political party platform planks.

Looter politicians avoid mentioning planks. Planks are what people read before donating money.(link) God’s Own Prohibitionist parties–yes there are two–promise to seek a Constitutional Amendment to prohibit birth control and all 3 or 4 communist parties promise to do the same to throttle off access to energy and take-home pay. Fascist partisans vehemently deny ties to religious nationalsocialism just as anti-energy parties cover acres of newsprint convincing voters they are “not really” communist.

Law-changing clout of spoiler votes!

All political change comes from growing party spoiler vote clout–Dokuro Chan

Yet the 16th and 18th Amendments that wrecked the economy came from ku-klux and socialist platform planks, just as all current shibboleths against economic freedom and individual rights come from the exact same places. Parties that seek to divide rights take their cues from religious or materialist totalitarianism. The only party that regards freedom and rights as indivisible is the Libertarian Party. Visit your state or local LP to see what you can do to help. Your spoiler vote returns at least 20 times the change dividend if invested against the Kleptocracy.

LP growth BEFORE the platform sabortage

Before adding 2018 planks to import terrorists and protect them from capital punishment the LP was growing 80% per year. What planks are your state or local LP writing?

With Friends like Anarchists…

Legalize rape, murder, lynching, war

A state without borders is a State of War

The only thing holding back the Libertarian party is a pack of communist anarchists claiming Ayn Rand’s 1947 non-aggression principle requires the abolition of a State that protects individual rights by enforcing objectively-defined laws against theft, fraud and violence. (link) For full context, understand that a free laissez-faire government with no individual income tax that protects individual rights from theft, fraud and violence is what no-borders anarchists do NOT want. (link) It therefore follows that all anarcho-communist infiltrators laying siege to the LP since 1973 act to stop the LP from accomplishing what we set out to do in 1972.

http://

So they infiltrate our party, drive away voters, and invite the looter media to depict THEM as champions of libertarianism. Big Tent straddlers are left scratching their heads wondering why the voters are running away. By sabotaging laissez-faire democracy these cuckoos prevent the only sort of government that would hesitate to deport or guillotine the lot of them.

Arnychists, suicide-vest berserkers, amok murderers

Anarchists, epileptics, beggars–Anarchist Exclusion Act of 1903 (link)

To flush out the sources of this pollution, the Libertarian party set up a donations/votes auction to democratically see how popular the legalization of murder and importation of hoof-and-mouth disease is among libertarians who join, pay dues, volunteer and vote. One communist plus some sockpuppets evidently voted ANCAPISTAN as the amok berserker image of libertarians they wanted to project to the public.  And why not? Look at how effectively portraying Charles Manson as representative of sixties hippie culture worked to popularize Dick Nixon and George Wallace.

That initiative was badly beaten by TANSTAAFL, from the Robert Heinlein novel published shortly before the founding of the LP (link) and endorsed by Milton Friedman–the man who pointed out to us how small party spoiler votes change the laws and amend the Constitution.  This result convinced me the LP is still healthy and worth working for, even if we have to send a few undesirables back to CPUSA.

Cognitive Mental Blocks

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

Genetics offers another illustration:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pero, no, y evite Evita

Argentine Libertarian Party

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

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

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

The Anarchy Fallacy

division by zero is wrong

Approaching 0 is different from putting 0 in the denominator.

A theory popular among folks who never cracked a logic or math book was that anarchism is “the logical end-product” of communism. That changed in 1972 when under 4000 Libertarian votes for John Hospers and Toni Nathan generated one consistent and uncorrupted electoral vote and changed important laws. Nowadays, intellectuals of the looter persuasion din everyone within earshot with the amended revealed truth that anarchism is “the logical end-product” of liberalism or libertarianism. Orwell commented on this sort of flip-flop when he explained how English socialists abhorred nationalsocialism until the Hitler-Stalin pact–AFTER which they promptly granted that fascism was, after all, a form of socialism, hence not all that bad.

Before trying to axiomatize a thing, it pays to examine what the thing does and doesn’t mean to begin with. There were communist anarchists all over the map, firing shots and exploding bombs in crowded places, when Max Weber spun off an objective and useful definition of government as “a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory”.

The typically Germanic purpose Weber attributed to this “community,” however, was “the use of physical force as a means of domination”–the opposite of what libertarians want. To be legitimate, our use of force ought to be retaliatory–the response to aggression, to menacing–rather than initiated. The idea is to defend the rights of individuals, their moral claims to freedom of action, and nothing else. Weber also took pains to remind his students: “Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state.” Looters are apt to grasp this precisely because they are the ones bent on domination by force. Weber also makes clear that “expropriation” is part and parcel of the domination by force he described in 1919.

The Libertarian Party was founded by admirers of Ayn Rand’s ideas, in particular, her ethical approach to the use of force within the context of limited constitutional democracy. In April of 1942 she wrote the non-aggression principle, which in 1971 was distilled into a pledge required for membership in the Libertarian Party. Every libertarian partisan has signed this Non-Aggression Pledge:

I certify that I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals.

The objective definition of government, including its territoriality feature, survived, but the purpose Weber wrote down–which Hitler exploited to form the NSDAP a year later–is today discarded. After all, most German voters were convinced National Socialism was successful after 18 years, but that theory did not survive past 25 years of age.

America’s lasting success comes from the word “free.” In the First and Second Amendments, free means free from aggressive coercion in a literal sense. This also symbolizes right (as opposed to wrong) in an ethical sense. In These States, an individual life worth living is the objective standard of value. Hence, the forcible defense (enforcement) of individual rights–thwarting their forcible violation–is the sole purpose of legitimate government. The LP’s growing success stems from this demonstrably desirable standard of ethical value.

You cannot divide by zero instead of using the definition of a limit to find a derivative for the slope of a curve. On these sigmoid curves the derivative exists and changes sign at the halfway mark. Nor can you reduce to zero the territorial jurisdiction or definition of government and still enforce the rights of individuals. Rand said to ask yourself what competition in the forcible restraint of men has to mean. The answer, the monstrous answer which all communist infiltrators pretending to advocate for freedom struggle to evade, is war. War and death are what every anarchist seeks. So why else, other than hostile mimesis, would they infiltrate the LP?

If sabotage weren’t the motive, anarchists could be expected to organize the Anarchist Party of America, offer to legalize murder, robbery extortion, rape, slavery and disfigurement. Members could be encouraged to burn their voter registration cards. The party could field candidates who declare themselves opposed to the Constitution of the United States and eager to overthrow it by force rather than uphold it per an oath of office. I seriously wish more anarchists would clearly state their purpose. Their comrades could no longer infiltrate gullible parties, point to their own 5th-column provocateurs embedded within the the LP, and hiss “anarchists!”

When not infiltrating the LP, looter intellectuals wriggle to infiltrate pacifist movements. These are populated by folks who promise not to forcibly resist “domination”, nor to capture, try and punish those who aggress against them. In theory this leads to Aldous Huxley’s Island of Pala being invaded and dominated. In practice you observe it in the streets of India, Pakistan and Portland.

Our spoiler vote method of bringing pressure to bear paid off when the LP platform stopped Dixiecrats from restoring laws banning all birth control. Still, the momentum behind the population curve, though decelerating since that time, was huge. Hence the delay in reversing population growth, even though the derivative of the population curve has been negative since the late sixties.

Since 1972, socialism–especially in its communo-fascist variants–is reversing in these States because of Libertarian candidates supporting our platform and offering to support (but repair) the Constitution. Spoiler votes entrusted to these candidates cause entrenched “vocational” politicians of the kleptocracy to repeal brutal laws and lower parasitic taxes–that or be unseated by other looters quicker on the uptake. Our candidates don’t even need to be elected in order to change the laws. The Nixon law bribing the media to ignore us has slowed the process, but the replacement is going on with mathematical inexorability as the libertarian vote share increases.

See how the Liberal Party of 1930 gained enough spoiler votes to sell the Democrats on its repeal plank–after Republican fanaticism wrecked the economy. Prohibition and The Crash is live on Amazon Kindle for the cost of a pint of craft beer.

Clarity isn’t oversimplification

Wonder Warthog’s Snout

Americans grow up with superheroes ‘n such. Sgt. Rock, Superman, Spiderman, Mr. A, Dr. Atomic and best of all, The Hog of Steel! Wonder Warthog turned up in mid-60s Drag Cartoons as technologist of scattershields and mechanical engineering, then resurfaced in the refined and sophisticated literature bristling up and down Haight Street all the way down to Market and to the Fillmore at Van Ness. Comics were the market currency with which kids learned to bargain, haggle and barter back in the day–skills that settled the Cold War on the side of Do Your Own Thing.

Skepticism struggled against the suspension of disbelief as Sgt. Rock’s deltoid looked the same after being shot dozens of times. How did Superman’s X-ray vision simultaneously project and receive? And howcum Wonder Warthog’s snout looked unlike those of pigs in the wilds of Texas and Mato Grosso? What was his other secret (besides identity)?

Research on the Opium Wars, Panic of 1907 and Balkan Wars required research in mail order catalogs of the sort Pearl S. Buck’s missionary father ordered stuff sent to China from at right about the time of the Boxer Rebellion, and lo! The secret of that most prurient of snouts was laid bare. As anarchist Leon Frank Czolgosz fired a bullet into President McKinley, patent lawyers sweated over the:

No wonder he was pissed off!

Extry, extry! Wonder Warthog victim of cruelty!

Thumbscrews! Is it any wonder Wonder Warthog became THE libertarian champion of freedom alongside Mr. A and Spidey? This Austintatious champion of laissez-faire was not only mutilated, but was also (SPOILER ALERT) Continue reading

Selfishness before Ayn Rand

Egoism does not aggress or rob

See 1940 original

In 1940 France and Britain were having expensive regrets about welshing on the loans they’d begged from the United States during WWI.

These United States were again selling them victuals and materiel they could not obtain from National Socialist Europe or Soviet Socialist Asia. But enslaving American youth to again intercede in bloody squabbles among European opiate peddlers was asking a bit much. To European socialists of both national and international persuasions, this refusal to sacrifice was the height of egotistical selfishness.  But is that the same as greed?

Selfishness is not predatory

Tatsuya Ishida’s SINFEST–The webcomic to end all webcomics

Ayn Rand had published Anthem in an England that was rapidly being transformed into the exact setting in which the novella had unfolded. Yet British intellectual-impersonators still echoed Hitler’s calls for “The Common Good Before the Individual Good.” Fifth-column agitators meanwhile harkened back to to the very Jesus der Fuehrer so often quoted, exhorting Parliament to surrender:

“Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” –Matthew 5:39

But Americans were learning by watching the “peace” coercive altruism had forged in Europe since the Molotov-Ribbentrop Agreement divvying Poland. Slavery, starvation, war and pestilence sprouted wherever predatory altruism lifted its outstretched arm in salute. The purpose of applied altruistic socialism (whether Christian fascism or lay communism) is to seize by force and threat of violence that which someone else has labored to produce. Ask yourself if this does not sound just a bit like greed, like coveting–then seizing–your neighbor’s goods?

Is this not Christian Socialism?

FAITH, OBEDIENCE, FIGHTING SPIRIT–The Catechisms of Fascism

Karl Marx did not use the wordcapitalism” in his Altrurian Bible.  But his disciples wasted no time in re-coining the term to describe the Christian monarchic mercantilism built upon coercive monopoly, slave labor and opium wars viewed as sublimely utopian by Adam Smith. Yet here we are in the 21st Century, while superstitious fanatics raid households and vehicles while looting bank and brokerage accounts under the aegis of “asset forfeiture.” If you rob a judge at gunpoint, that is your act of robbery. If the judge sends goons to rob you, that is your forfeiture of assets in the language of looter kleptocracy. Make sense? Libertarian, on the other hand, makes it clear that robbery and extortion are double-plus ungood.
