Both the Inner Party and Outer Party politicians see every person in the United States as owing them money because of the individual income tax enforced as of 1914. In order to better seize your goods and assets, any competent thief appreciates the advantage of “casing the joint” before breaking in and stealing. As long as the motive is not selfish, but altruistic–such as to contribute to the support of the national government–stealing and snooping are good because altruism is good by definition. So long as the law sends men with guns to rob you, this is a kleptocracy in which individuals have no right to property or privacy any more than you can cave your cake and let your neighbor eat it too. There is exactly one (01) political party committed to repealing the individual income tax.
I vote for the Libertarian Party and against all others. Before 1914 people had no experience with communo-fascist socialism and small parties forced the large parties to adopt the tax by running candidates and getting votes. Now that we know about Auschwitz, Treblinka, Ukraine, East Germany, Cambodia’s Killing Fields, the IRS, etc… we can reverse the damage by voting. Knowing the difference now makes it ethically important to act to preserve the rights individuals so clearly require as a matter of survival. The closer to socialism (personal income tax + government ownership of production and control of trade), the more murder, torture, starvation, genocide, suicide and refugees struggling to escape. This is a smooth function. Moving away from socialism does not mean accepting a mercantilist mixed economy. It is the simple rejection of the initiation of force.
There is a healthy libertarian party in Holland, which along with the rest of The Netherlands, was occupied by German National Socialists. The invaders wanted to protect Christianity against selfishness (by which they meant Jews and free-trading liberals), and communism (by which they meant all socialists not in the thrall of dogmatic christian altruism). Dutchmen, however, valued freedom and not coercion, and the Netherlands became a dangerous place to send SS Protection Squadron officers. The symbol of De Libertarische Partij, Netherlands, is an open birdcage and a free bird. Where had I seen anything like that before?
The University of Texas at Austin hosts art exhibits, among which I found an SS propaganda poster titled KULTUR TERROR or LIBERATORS depending on the version, intended to make nationalsocialism popular in Holland. The US juggernaut depicted had as its thorax a birdcage containing a jitterbugging couple. A nearby European collaborator, appalled at the apparition with its Ku-Klux head and ungainly appendages, pronounces it a threat to European values. No doubt the same mentality is muttering similar comments–nowadays about the Libertarische Partij.
You can see this poster by googling “Dutch SS poster” and using the images option. There you will also see inspirational posters of nationalsocialism protecting christianity against godless communism. France was invaded and occupied by those same superstitious fanatics. If French reaction to Uber apps and mohammedan infiltration is any indication, Laval’s heirs show little evidence of having learned much from the experience. The Dutch, however, can easily understand German, and thus felt on their hides exactly what philosophical errors motivate the enemies of freedom. The error is blind acceptance of predatory altruism and superstitious nonsense as good by definition. It makes one almost optimistic about the future of Europe.
