Economic Power v Political

Remember in physics how force x distance is Work? And the rate at which the work is done is Power?

John Hospers, the first Libertarian Party candidate for President, then an organizer of the Libertarian Defense Caucus gave a definition of economic power in his book Libertarianism (link)

Economic power is simply the right under freedom to refuse to make an exchange.

Ayn Rand defined it thus: 

It is the power to produce and to trade what one has produced.

She went on to explain that: 

Political power is exercised by means of a negative, by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction. 

In a free society, economic power is like the generation of electricity. It therefore follows, as night follows day, that the generation of electric power draws the boiling wrath of all sensitive, concerned and aware totalitarians, who imagine it will exterminate mankind, cause Misanthropic Global Warming Climate Change Sharknados as predicted by 1961 Soviet propaganda.

To politicians and weapons designers, political power is the rate at which disobedient citizens or foreign aggressors (or both) can be transformed into cadavers. It is the line integral of harmful and deadly force over whatever distance is needed within a timeframe important to them.

So next time you cast a vote, look at the ballot and notice that of the three options you have, only Libertarian Party candidate Jo Jorgensen offers you the opportunity to vote AGAINST the initiation of deadly force required by the increase of political power. That same option enables you to vote FOR the increase in freedom that means the same thing as the reduction of coercive force. It also means an economy less threatened by prohibitionist asset-forfeiture crashes, collapses and Depressions.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

THIS is the either-or. The Republicans and Democrats BOTH want your sanction to beat the other looter so they can rob and coerce you with less interference. Only by voting Libertarian can you go on the historical record and figure in important statistical curve plots as being FOR the increase of freedom and AGAINST coercion.

This is the ethical decision, the choice between right and wrong, now placed before you. Germans made the wrong choice in 1933 by voting for a politician. The Japanese, Russians and Italians made similar mistakes in their choice of men while ignoring the laws of physics and ethical distinctions popular candidates urged them to ignore. 

Make your vote MATTER for a change!

She’s with Us!

Google bias experiment

Try this experiment. We know for a fact that coercion (socialism, fascism) is losing power and freedom (libertarianism) is waxing strong. The same substitution curves that modeled past trends, such as democracy replacing monarchy and digital media replacing vinyl, reveal this with mathematical integrity.

Now… use a search engine to look for “libertarian trend curve”…
And select View Images…

Duck Duck Go returns nothing at all, not even for “libertarian trend” curve–at least not south of the Equator. But fills the screen with images if you search for “honest politician”.

Google pulls up an old graph of LP Twitter links then fills the rest of the screen with “libertarian socialism”… Wobbly geezers in sepia and Daguerrotype peer out from wrinkles and beards. Through the looking-glass of corporate search engines, web-surfers are tube-fed this association of “libertarian” with embalmed brainwashed communists and bomb-tossing, politician-shooting anarchist arsonists. How convenient.

Before 1972, when our platform handed the Supreme Court a Roe v Wade decision on the same platter with the first electoral vote ever earned by a woman, such package-deal tarbrushing was already common. For a historical parallel, in 1932, as economy-wrecking Republican prohibitionists were in the shadow of the 1932 election guillotine, they invented the fiction that Liberal meant anti-american communist jewish drug pornographers. The Liberal Party had the previous year published a platform calling for repeal of the 18th Amendment root and branch.
