Tarl’s Trump Commercial

Tarl is the only intelligent commentator in favor of wasting a vote on Trump’s Republican party.

And here is Trump himself giving reasons why–if you value the U.S. economy–you should vote for Libertarian Candidate Jo Jorgensen and not any of the geriatric entrenched prohibitionist kleptocracy candidates. Southern Command is a branch of the U.S. military charged with invading, robbing, kidnapping and murdering foreign citizens and elected politicians in pseudoscientific zealotry to prohibit plant leaves in other people’s territories.

Kill! kill! kill! and we was both jumpin up and down hollering

For the benefit of Democratic Party readersGeriatric: relating to old people, especially with regard to their health care. Cf a geriatric hospital. Prohibitionist: the action of forbidding something, especially by law Cf Joe Biden, Mandatory Minimums, Bush Dynasty, Herbert Hoover, Crash, Depression

For the benefit of Republican Party readers: Entrenched: firmly established and difficult or unlikely to change; ingrained: an entrenched resistance to change. Kleptocracy: a cabal that uses political power to steal its country’s resources.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

For the benefit of any who believe in wasting their potentially law-changing spoiler vote to instead legitimize coercion at the hands of an entrenched looter politician: Winning: gaining, resulting in, or relating to victory in a contest or competition; changing bad laws–NOT the act of electing some grinning politician to rob murder and enslave you a minute slower than some equally ruthless murderer.

It Takes a Village Idiot

Irishwoman 1971

Ireland, 1971, no LP.org

As soon as the Libertarian Party used a single electoral vote to secure rights enjoyed by women in England and even Russia, God’s Own Prohibitionists began casting about for ways to counter, offset, weaken, ridicule, infiltrate and sabotage the Party of Principle. At the time the Libertarian party was formed, the English Parliament had already passed the 1967 Abortion Act stating essentially what our 1972 plank contained–at a time when nobody but George Wallace stood in opposition.

Shoot Me!

Wallace spoiler votes crippled America, and bullets crippled Wallace

But no sooner had the Supreme Court swung that plank like a mace to unhorse the latest Dixiecrat appeal to “race suicide” fears in Roe v Wade than national socialist soft machines went into high gear. The Prohibition Party platform added demands for yet another Prohibition Amendment, this one aimed at influencing Republican Party reproductive policies back to the Comstockism of 1873 via the threat of drawing away spoiler votes.(link) Sure enough, the Republican Party immediately copied that antichoice plank into its 1976 platform, in yet another proof of the law-changing effectiveness of casting spoiler votes.(link) (link)

Religious looters dominating the GOP and Prohibition Party essentially held their breath hoping nobody would mention the 1967 English (much less Russian) laws ensuring the individual rights of women. But after the LP let the cat out of the bag and Canada also jumped on the individual rights bandwagon, faith-based nationalsocialism began a sustained bombardment of amendment proposals to coerce women and doctors.   Ireland–politically a suburb of Vatican City at the time–fell prey to the whipped-up frenzy and joined a witchhunt against women and physicians with Amendment 8 passed in 1983 (then was repealed by 2/3 majority May 26, 2018). Communist Romania’s antichoice dictator Ceausescu was tried and executed on Christmas of 1989.(link

Village Idiot politics

Mises Caucus Anarchist Infiltrator The Village Idiot infiltration tactic

Yet here we are in the 21st Century and God’s Own Prohibitionists in their platform and policies STILL pressure, bribe, entice, infiltrate and intimidate the Libertarian Platform Committee back toward the halcyon days of the Panic of 1873. That was when sending a packet of condoms through the mail was good for ten years in the penitentiary and a fine equivalent to $300,000 at today’s gold conversion rate. What has changed is that ONLY Americans born before Herbert Hoover was nominated for the Presidency believe mysticism is increasingly important to politics. Those pre-1928 Landover Baptist, Billy Sunday, Father Coughlin, Billy Graham and Bob Jones Republican tools insist on poisoning our platform with planks designed to repel women voters. Their latest tactic is to subsidize LP infiltration by clowns and mentally disturbed exhibitionists.  

The smart way to break the cycle is to vote Libertarian, and let the Republican Party flounder and sink as voters flee the national socialist shipwreck and vote 21st-Century American Libertarian policies instead of 12th-Century Mohammedan attitudes toward women. Don’t worry. Many thinking people are poised to flee the sinking hulk that is the Democratic People’s Party as well. You cannot lose by exchanging 0.00000007% of a wasted vote total for 0.00002% of clout-leveraged spoiler votes guaranteed to put bad laws in the dustbin of history. That’s a leveraged gain of 3 orders of magnitude in the importance of your individual vote.

LP candidate meets the press-gang

Like nearly all actual libertarians I was thrilled to see Jo Jorgensen beat Das Boothead, Angry Shellshocked Vet, Hanging Judge Dred and other uninspiring contestants. And it is a pity that a goofy voting system kept her from having Jacob Hornberger as the competent Vice-Presidential candidate she and I preferred.(link) But her first “friendly” LPTV interview could have gone better. 

Jo agreeing with prohibitionist characterizations? (link)

So now what we have is a community of poor people, because the government put them all in one place, where they can’t help each other, and guess what’s the only way you can drive a Mercedes? The only way you can drive a Mercedes is if you sell drugs. So now, what the government has created is an enclosed community, without fathers, and the only role model is the drug dealer, who’s got the, the great jewelry and the Mercedes. And now we’ve got a criminal as the role model. It is just tragedy what the government has done to motivation and incentive.

So… prohibition scofflaws are bad people who buy fossil-guzzlers from The Accursed Hun? Contrast THAT with what HL Mencken said about “drug” dealers back when light beer was a hard time felony

What is needed, obviously, is a new hero for the infantry of the land, for if one is not quickly supplied there is some danger that the boys will begin admiring Y.M.C.A. secretaries, crooked members of the Cabinet and lecturers on sex hygiene. In this emergency I nominate the bootlegger not, of course, the abject scoundrel who peddles bogus Scotch in clubs and office buildings, but the dashing, romantic, defiant fellow who brings the stuff up from Bimini. He is the true heir, not only of the old-time Indian fighters and train-robbers, but also of the tough and barnacled deep-water sailors, now no more. He faces the perils of the high seas in a puny shallop, and navigates the worst coast in the world in contempt of the wind and storm. Think of him lying out there on wild nights in winter, with the waves piling mountain-high and the gale standing his crazy little craft on her beam! Think of him creeping in in his motorboat on Christmas Eve, risking his life that the greatest of Christian festivals may be celebrated in a Christian and respectable manner! …

This brave lad is not only the heir of Jesse James and Ned Buntline; he is also the heir of John Hancock and all of the other heroes who throttled the accursed Hun in 1776. All the most gallant among them were smugglers, and in their fragile craft they brought in not only rum but also liberty. The Revolution was not only against the person of the Potsdam tyrant, George III; it was also, and especially, against harsh and intolerable laws the worst of them the abhorrent Stamp Act. But was the Stamp Act worse than Prohibition? I leave it to any fair man. Prohibition, in fact, is a hundred times as foul, false, oppressive and tyrannical. (link)

Quick to learn, however, our candidate gave a much better account of herself before the Public Brainwashing System interrogator over at Nationalsocialist Public Radio: 

SIMON: I’ve got to ask you about your running mate. His name is Spike Cohen. He calls himself an anarchist. He says he’s running to troll the system. He has a platform that promises, as I understand it, free ponies and a Waffle House on every corner.

JORGENSEN: I believe you are reciting the presidential platform of one of my competitors who lost, and Spike is now on my team. And so no, that’s not our platform.

SIMON: Well, it’s not your platform. You mean – are you saying Spike Cohen never said that?

JORGENSEN: What I’m saying is now that Spike Cohen has joined my team, we’ve got a combined platform that is mine. (link)

Already Jo is deftly coping with the humiliation of having a communist anarchist impostor thrust on her campaign by machinations of the Anschluss Caucus.(link) Good work!

Hormesis and Freedom

Chusch of Communism

Anarchist communism is an altruist religion

Communist anarchists hyphenated and rebranded as soi-disant “anarcho-libertarians” or Ancapistanis confuse taking a limit (useful math) with dividing by zero (mathematical fallacy). This is what happens when you abandon definitions.(link) Libertarians have since 1971 sought to reduce government functions to the protection of individual rights through objectively-defined laws against theft fraud and violence.(link) Even in 1776, before communist anarchism was invented, Thomas Jefferson pointed out the obvious

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. 

That sort of democratic laissez-faire is precisely what anarchists do NOT want. Anarchists loudly insist that ALL government is an evil poison, and that no tiny amount of it is safe. In this, as usual, they are joined by eugenicists, nationalsocialists and prohibitionists–all of them division-by-zero fanatics who reject the virtue of voluntary temperance.(link)

Buzzing is healthy

Moderate doses of radiation, alcohol, hashish, mescalin, LSD, INCREASE life expectancy, to the horror of eugenicist prohibitionists

Back when communist anarchism was popular among the clueless, prohibitionism was also on the march.(link) The two factions collaborated to increase coercion via the 16th, 17th and 18th Amendments–with almost no spoiler votes and hardly anyone elected.(link) Just as anarchists want no laws against murder, prohibitionists (like their communist pals) want murderous laws against trade and production, especially of things like freedom, beer and plant leaves. 

Radiation and drugs are healthy

Hormesis curve looks like Laffer Curve

Republicans finally endorsed prohibitionism in their 1928 platform and lost the next five elections. 

The people through the method provided by the Constitution have written the Eighteenth Amendment into the Constitution. The Republican Party pledges itself and its nominees to the observance and vigorous enforcement of this provision of the Constitution.

Real life had another surprise in store for prohibitionists, who say ALL enjoyable drugs are poison, and ANY poison kills and therefore ALL must be banned for your safety by men brandishing loaded service pistols. Prohibition made it a felony for drinking water to contain over half a percent of alcohol. That’s 0.6 fluid ounces per gallon. Understand that drinking two gallons of pure water–without the shotglass of Everclear–means a 50% chance of death from shock. We know this because people died in water drinking contests during Prohibition, their electrolytes that severely imbalanced.(link)

A handful of hemp seeds was a prison time felony in 1969. German National Socialists wanted to exterminate ALL people suspected of selfishness when Herbert Hoover helped them to power.(link) All of these wrong positions arose from the pseudoscience of Eugenics.(link

Even assuming there were something bad about laissez-faire government, as nations move toward it (that is, away from communo-fascist socialism), life expectancy increases along with per-capita Gross National Product. So as is the case for beer, magic mushrooms, hemp, LSD, and any number of maligned items, the initial effect at least is beneficial

Hormesis curves are a lot like the Laffer curve. To Kleptocracy looters, cutting taxes is arterial bleeding. But whenever the Coolidge Administration lowered taxes back closer to 8% of GNP, government revenue increased.(link) To Reefer Madness fanatics, one light beer is Demonic Possession, but medical statistics indicate two shots of single-malt are a fortifying tonic.(link)

This stamp is the East German Communist ANTIFA anniversary celebration of the “protective” Berlin Wall, five years before the collapse of Euro-Communism. I have interacted with hundreds of communists over the years, and all are rabidly opposed to anything that makes human life longer or less miserable. Electric power, individual rights–the things without which life worth living is impossible–these they oppose just as religious bigots oppose beer, plant leaves, contraception and deterrents to aggression. Aggression is the one thing that communist anarchists and mystical caudillos together seek to maximize. Aggression is what libertarian voters seek to minimize so that freedom is increased.

Words you can dance to

Clarity isn’t oversimplification

Clear libertarian principles

The 1972 Libertarian Party Statement of Principles is far and away the best such presentation anywhere today. But the clearer we make it the less chance there is for regrettable misinterpretation. The fallacy of equivocation is the assignment of different meanings to a term, usually by accident or oversight. The word in question, however, is the noun form of “right” or “rights” the thing we seek to defend. Here is the correct usage, in which a right is an ethical claim to freedom of action: 


We hold that each individual has the right to exercise sole dominion over his own life, and has the right to live his life in whatever manner he chooses, so long as he does not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live their lives in whatever manner they choose.

Compare that with Thomas Jefferson’s phrasing: 

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed

Jefferson makes a clear distinction between rights and powers. Here is an LP rendering Jefferson could improve by editing: 

Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the life of the individual and seize the fruits of his labor without his consent.

Clearly, this version of a “right” is at best a legitimized power or a deontological arrogation of coercive privilege, and conservatives, fascists, socialists and communists delight in misattributing those meanings to “rights,” just as gleefully as they blur the distinctions between freedom and coercion.

A right is a moral claim to freedom of action was drummed into our UTEXAS Ethics classes by tenured Prof Tara Smith, who dared us to refute it. The definition is consistent with most of our criminal code, Constitution and Declaration. If a right is a claim to freedom (absence of coercion) it can hardly be retasked into a political provision for the execution of convicts, belligerent criminals or enemy combatants, all of which mean the exercise of political power. Even in classical terms, political power in social sciences is the capacity to see to the physical restraint of men, hopefully men who have abdicated their claim to freedom by aggressing against others.

Physics according to the Hog of Steel

Prof. W. Warthog, PhilbertD.


By analogy with freshman physics, where force times distance is work, and the rate at which work is done is power, political power is the same, with the caveat that since the exercise of physical restraint typically involves harmful and often deadly force, the rate at which that sort of work can be done is people incapacitated/killed per unit of time. Look at comparisons of military force and they are measured and expressed in those terms. So if we want to keep clear the distinction between the exercise of individual rights and exercise of the physical restraint States are tasked with using to secure those rights, we ought to resist blurring the distinction.

On the practical side, the change ought not to cost us any votes. I expect that the added clarity will better attract the support of anyone we could ever hope to attract. Even if the suggestion undergoes defenestration, I would then turn to attempting to replace the equivocated “right” with “legal standing”, “authorized authority” or some other, more appropriate construction. Even the “right” to kill in self defense is only a sloppy expression of the special, often regrettable, unintended and unfortunate case of the freedom or right to act in self defense in situations so fluid and dangerous that a jury might agree that the fatal outcome could be justified in a court of law or court-martial. Nicholas Sarwark is more qualified to expound on that collocation.

Suppose the original idea was to deliberately misuse “right” as a venomous barb on what amounts to a criticism of (imputed) wrongs we hope to right. Then I beg leave to suggest the barb was way too subtle for the opening statements intended to enlist support for us. As a joke it does not translate well. Right this minute there are 20 other countries looking to us as exemplars for the drafting of platforms for advancement of rights and minimization of coercion—even if less than instantaneous. Examining just a few of the “constitutions” those people have to work under makes one appreciate the advantage of a Constitution smaller than 8000 words.

This language is in the original platform, which I cherish and defend, yet would not hesitate to rescue from error. I have always admired Hospers and Nolan and would argue the same point to them. This is something no later platform committee can be blamed for, yet its importance is so fundamental (especially when you contemplate expressing it in other languages), that I feel obligated to advance this suggestion. I of course welcome the most vigorous attacks on its supporting logic and rhetorical usefulness.

I move that the expression be reexamined and incorrect iterations of the word “right” be replaced with “political power” something more appropriate for the description of even the most salutary government coercion. If that motion fails, I would move that the incorrect specimens be placed in quotes.

Libertarian Party Universe of Discourse

Visual illusion

The mirror is real, the photo unaltered (link)

Every child is sooner or later faced with the God conundrum: If God is all-powerful, can he make a rock so heavy that even He Himself is unable to lift it? The puzzle is a tiny intelligence test with consequences. Children who cannot solve it–the ones eugenicists used to refer to as feeble-minded–conclude that religious superstition makes no sense and are easily enlisted into some Communist Youth Movement–believing that to be the only existing alternative. (link)

Others, equally unprepared for abstract thinking, undergo a moment of epiphany from which they emerge convinced that God obviously can produce a rock to nonsensical specifications, and are thankful for having had the Faith with which to resist the Devil’s attempt to inveigle them into the Sin of Denial. They then back political efforts to jail or kill all who disbelieve. Two wrongs make zero rights. (link)

None of these children ever grow up. At best they metamorphose into communist anarchists, democrats, republicans or fascists permanently confounded by false contradictions and unable to mature into rational thinkers. The idea of individual rights as an ethical claim to freedom of action stumps them completely. (link)

The results assume various forms: 

  • The Non-Aggression Principle says not to initiate the use of force against anyone. Therefore “we” should replace government with a state of war. 
  • “We” must abolish all government because laws against murder require prior restraint!
  • “We” must send armed agents of the Political State coercively reaching inside of women like Joe Biden because pregnant women aren’t individuals!
  • Invading armies, plague carriers and drovers of herds of infected cattle must be welcomed, because border inspection implies coercion to prevent invasion!
  • The tariff that funds Navy and Coast Guard inspections is a restraint on free trade (and hobbles entry of hostile biological, chemical and nuclear weapons) so “we” must abolish all tariffs (and instead keep the Communist Manifesto income tax).
  • “We” need shoot-first prohibitionism because pseudoscience says grass is addictive and mescalin messes up your chromiums, so Creation Science predicts we’d mutate into apes!
  • “We” need eugenics to wipe out the joos and make the world safe for altruism because eugenics says selfishness is an innate birth defect, like club-foot or feeble-mindedness!
  • “We” must rob someone else to feed the halt and lame because coercion is freedom!

Smart children, on the other hand, instantly recognize a toy–possibly even a weapon–with which to confound grownups. Brightness in a child is the belief in the ignorance of grownups–a concept physicist Richard Feynman reworked into a definition: “science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts.” This approach pays off. Artless fathers respond to God’s heavy rock conundrum with “go ask your mother.” Less-neglected parents explain how universes of discourse(link) are subject to rules of engagement that do not admit such artless dodges as equivocation, division by zero or doublethink. (link

So if you include an irresistible force in your premises, that excludes any immovable objects from that particular universe of discourse. If you include elections, that excludes anarchism. (link)

If you include a Libertarian political party in your plans, that precludes a platform to abolish the government, violate the Bill of Rights, or enshrine communist activities like bomb-throwing anarchism as some sort of protected “right” to invade, menace or otherwise initiate force or presume to retaliate. It does not preclude writing an intelligent platform calling for reversal of past mistaken amendments. The Prohibition of trade and production of alcoholic beverages was repealed by vote, and the Communist Manifesto income tax and illiterate election of senators can also be repealed. But candidates and planks that promise to violate the oath of office or Bill or Rights are a liability.

Fat Freddy and Gilbert Shelton say

Rights will get you through times of no anarchists better than communism will get you through times of no rights!

Communist anarchists, Comancheria war party raiders, warriors against individual rights of women, of blacks or semites, people who think devils are real and borders imaginary, believers in Rapture, televangelists of Apocalypse or race suicide are all just as welcome to register and vote for Libertarian candidates as engineers, scientists, actuaries, statisticians, physicians, nurses, writers, loggers, roofers, carpenters, busboys, waitresses, entrepreneurs, inventors and even attorneys. But we do not need people incapable of understanding the simplest definitions writing our political party platforms. It is tough enough to keep changing the laws through the unrelenting pressure of spoiler votes without incompetent bungling or deliberate sabotage. Fair enough? 

As you read this, infiltrators are adding planks to nullify biology inviting child molesters into both children’s bathrooms, declaring girl-bulliers act “in good faith,” package-dealing “free trade” and “migration” to again invite uninspected entry of infected cattle, foreign agents and biological weapons into These States, abolishing your copyrights, elevating “desire” over the constitutional provisions for defense, replacing the functions of government plank with an endorsement of communist anarchism (a state of war), removing national defense from international affairs, (infiltrators with no passport or second language) meddling in the territories plank, and converting the self-determination plank into a Dixiecrat endorsement of secession. 

I move that every participant who voted to approve these frauds resign or face a straight-up vote of no confidence by all dues-paying members registered to vote. I am also searching for candidates to replace certain table officers and entrenched moles. (link)

A Mess of Dotage

Thanks to Gilbert Shelton of Texas

1971 Gerontocracy Politics versus the LP.org

The Don is 73, Biden (Harry Anslinger 2.0) is now the 77 Trump will attain if he makes it another four years. Bernie (Edward Bellamy 2.0) at age 78 has only one ideological peer, and that is AOC (Lolita Lebrón 2.0)–49 years younger.(link) Ronald Reagan was a mere child of 70 summers when elected, but was already having dotage problems before leaving office. 

All the Libertarian party need do is find another pro-choice nominee with a life expectancy greater than zero who has read and agreed with the platform. With that we would for the first time ever have a chance at what suckers and vidiots refer to as “winning.”(link). Robert Dear is not that nominee, and neither is Ron Paul, little Randall or Justin Amash; all are sworn enemies of individual rights for women like Ceausescu and legacy Old World mullahs, pontiffs and Ottoman kings. We want someone more like John Hospers and Toni Nathan.(link)

Communists and fascists try to infiltrate

3 out of 4 Libertarians AREN’T WOMEN thanks to race suicide collectivist infiltrators tarbrushing our party from within!

To the looter gerontocracy, “winning” means getting your candidate to dodder past the electoral college finish line so your party gets a gun in one hand and a hand in the till. To a libertarian activist, winning is using spoiler votes to cause looter antagonists to–in desperation–repeal cruel laws and lower taxes. The kleptocrats do these things in hopes of surviving a race in which Libertarian voters cover the gap between two wheezing, senile liars. Your libertarian vote is highly-leveraged currency with which you may buy back freedom or repeal coercion. Either way you look at it, you win. (link)

The Antichoice communist with Vatican

What Irish Voters Repealed by 2/3 majority

There is precedent for the noble experiment of gerontocracy. When Herbert Hoover was elected President, one of his “Good Neighbor” prohibitionist wet-your-whistle stops was the People’s State of Argentina. On April Fool’s Day of 1928 those idealistic voters elected Hipólito Irigoyen to a second non-consecutive term, per the example of Grover Cleveland. But Cleveland was only 56 at his second Inauguration in 1893. Argentina since 1928 or 2020 is hardly an example of freedom or economic success.(link)

By December of 1929 Herb Hoover was anxiously congratulating Argentina’s First Senior Citizen for surviving an assassination attempt at age 77. Irigoyen was inaugurated almost six months after the election, and actually held office until deposed in a caudillo-style military coup. His term in office lasted nearly two years. Nobody remembers him or the junta caudillo who took his place. Argentina has but small reputation as a hotbed of intellectual libertarianism.(link) Libertarian parties only exist in the freest countries, like the USA. (link)  

Never has there been a more opportune time for U.S. voters to grow some backbone and vote for the future of freedom, rather than throw away law changing spoiler votes for a mess of dotage.(link) Judge Rehnquist was the Nixon appointee who followed George Wallace’s spoiler votes to the point of voting against Roe v. Wade. He dropped in the traces at 81, way more confused than today’s Joe Biden. John F. Kennedy, coke-sniffing, joint-smoking, peace-loving acidhead bent on “a world of law and free choice, banishing the world of war and coercion,” was elected president at age 43. 

JFK was shot in the throat from ahead

JFK was shot from ground level ahead; Connally from 6 floors up

Kennedy’s murder, performed by three gunmen orchestrated by Republican and Dixiecrat nurturers of a world of war and coercion, passed that torch to a new generation. Eight years after that coup, the Libertarian Party was formed as Nixon signed into law government subsidies for entrenched, decrepit and violent soft machines.  Our first candidates, John Hospers–born one year later than JFK–and Toni Nathan, moved our women’s rights plank into the Roe v Wade decision. It took the communist party another eight years to copy the LP and offer Angela Davis as veep on a platform to abolish individual rights. The Dems copied them four years later.

WINNING is repealing cruel laws!

LP choice vote increasing 80% per year after Bush Crash!

This is an opportunity not to be missed. But it is better not to have a candidate than to let another religious fanatic infiltrator announce to women everywhere that the LP seeks to bully and coerce them. Leave that to the Republicans, Dixiecrats, Tea-totalitarians Middle-Eastern monarchies and Old World fascism. Even in Ireland 2/3 of voters decided women, not the papacy, are the individuals with rights. (link)

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.

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

ANcommunism 1924

Excluding European Looters

ANcommunists before the LP.org

After the 3-year Depression presaged by the first Prohibition Crash of 1920, Congress reacted to the sudden increase in looter anarchist partisans with the 1924 Immigration Act. Here’s how it worked. 

Encouraged by confiscation, fines, asset forfeiture and cruel prison terms imposed on miscreants not shot on sight, religious fanatics turned the force of law against Sunday baseball. They blacklisted merchandise and made a crime–not of violence–but of trade and production.** America then was (thanks to our oilfields) a mystical satrapy more like Saudi Arabia than Iran.(link)

But in a fractional reserve banking system where securities are sold on credit backed by the value of the stock shares, confiscations, fines and asset forfeiture cause depositors to remove money from banks and sell off their stocks. The money supply contracts sharply and a liquidity crunch generates a wave of bankruptcies. Depression results and voters rightly conclude they’ve been had.(link)

This happened in 1907, 1914, 1920, 1929, 1987 and 2008. The mechanism is described in Friedman’s “Free to Choose.” When these events of 1920 and 1929 impoverished the nation, there was no opposition Libertarian Party to turn to. Voters turned away from the failed Kleptocracy and canvassed for communists operating under several different names. Communist ranks increased both times.(link

Prohibition Crashes increase Looters

Prohibition and eugenic lead to poverty, communism,  fascism and war

The Kleptocracy dropped the ball, angry voters went elsewhere and communist membership doubled in the 1920-23 Depression. Communist membership fell when the dry laws were suborned and prosperity returned. But the 1929 Increased Penalties Act crashes caused communist numbers to double by 1932 and increase to five times the 1929 figure by 1937. With still no Libertarian Party to turn to, economic blight brought racial collectivist Christian National Socialists out of the woodwork in the US, Europe and Latin America. Another World War followed. That all changed after 1972.(link

After George Bush Jr orchestrated the asset-forfeiture Crash of 1980, seizing bank accounts and homes containing a potted hemp plant, the economy went to hell and ku-klux christianofascism suffered a telling blow. After twice failing to elect mystics, God’s Own Prohibitionists hired a trained persuader who was assisted to power by backlash against Global Warmunist pseudoscientists and anti-industrial doomcriers.

Gary Johnson running as a quasi-Republican girl-bullier in 2012 doubled our vote share thanks to the search for outside parties. But when Johnson recognized the individual rights the LP defended for women in 1972, our take went up 328% to 4.5 million votes in the federal elections and another 8 million or so in more important down-ballot elections.(link) The Libertarian Party is growing 80% per year and all the looter parties–communist and fascist alike–are losing members.

Once voters understand how government agent bank robbers and home-confiscators wreck the economy and attract coercive altruism, we stand to add another 8 million votes in general elections for 36 million overall. That kind of spoiler vote clout could repeal the 16th Amendment and free individuals of the IRS. But if the current Libertarian Platform Committee adds idiotic voter-alienating planks, or a conspicuously insane street person or girl-bullying republican gets the nomination, all is lost.(link
