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.

False Flag Infiltration 2

Twoscore and six years ago our Libertarian party WROTE the Roe v Wade decision prying Republican, Dixiecrat and Prohibitionist claws off of women’s bodies. But observe how carefully former Republican corrections officer and male politician Brandon Phinney of NH, skirts those individual rights. Planned Parenthood and the Center for Disease Control alike are agencies of public health, yet the candidate views only germ and virus epidemics as a bad enough neighborhood effect (or weapon of war) to merit government protection of the individual rights involved.  The Malthusuan disaster narrowly averted by pharmaceutical advances and the legalization of birth control speech and action Phinney professes to view as someone else’s problem.

First NAMBLA/Schwartz, now this!

Republican convert to the Libertarian Party? Wes Benedict wants my money for THIS?

Turncoat spies and infiltrators have always been a staple in the politics of looter parasitism. We would be naïve to expect any less today than mystics opposed to birth control yet willing to put up with funding of vaccinations to fend off epidemics no less Malthusian cross-dressing as Libertarians. Now the cross-dressers are anti-mystical collectivists–in a desperate effort to drag us down.

It is true that your blogger here was one of seven or so students at the University of Texas who voted to add the atomic symbol to the American Atheist magazine logo. Impressed by Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove and Pat Frank’s Alas Babylon–I concluded that modern weapons were too dangerous to depend on decisionmaking rooted in primitive superstition. They were, after all, developed to rid the planet of Christian National Socialism and godly Japanese Imperialism.

Yet primitive superstition, though diminishing, still has enough momentum to enact rights-destroying laws. By the same token, the population curve still has enough momentum to test humanity’s ability to provide for an additional 160 people per minute–this even though the slope of that curve tilted from positive to negative half a century ago, when there were but three billion of us.

That same month Madalyn O’Hair’s son Jon visited the UT campus atheist group spouting Marxist rhetoric no less fallacious than the ravings of competing organized mysticisms.

Jon and his mom were evidently murdered by their colleagues a couple of decades later, and her other son now leads the Jesus Crusade Against Planned Parenthood. Judging by results, collectivized counter-mysticism, Soviet or American, does not exhibit a consistent record of shining success when it comes minimizing the initiation of force and protecting the rights of individuals.

Though the Libertarian Party had been in existence for nearly five years, the fact was never mentioned within earshot of unmystical college students. Many libertarians today are simply non-superstitious individuals. The vast majority do not want to be enlisted or coerced by fanatics standing at Armageddon and Fighting for the Lord–nor by “atheists” fighting at that same Armageddon for Karl Marx. Advocates of coercion handily manipulate Mohammedans, Christians, Buddhists (as in Aum) and Socialist Man in their war against rights. Circumspection around these tribe-members is a good idea.

Reading a contract

One of the judges I worked for regularly during the Great Purge following the attacks on the Pentagon and civilian skyscrapers suggested I work for an additional company. She was referring to these bloated and top-heavy organizations governments are comfortable with exempting from competitive bidding. Court interpreters tend to focus extra attention on recommendations made by judges, so I contacted the company and received a dreary stack of forms to fill out.

Because life expectancies are limited,  it pays to read over the material before reaching for a pencil and filling in blanks. The main contract contained sentences with no object, others with no verb, and similar scars of the sort that result from inept editing. Repairing these contracts is a waste of time. This I knew from having spent dozens of hours on the thankless task over the course of several years. So I informed the employee that the contract was defective, with problems on page such-and-such, and to contact me again after corrections were made.

The reaction was the sort of gasp you’d expect were you to tell a mother to put her baby in the oven and turn on the gas. But it is the same everywhere. The people who seek these corporate timecard jobs do not think like free-range independent contractors who live by their wits or starve. I would bet money the problem was never reported back up the pecking order, and that hundreds of eager and starry-eyed young linguists hurriedly signed the mess without a why or a wherefore. When the judge eventually asked me about the company I reported that their contract was a garbled mess. She smiled, and that was the end of the matter.

With no surprise, and some schadenfreude, I notice the same company is suddenly getting a lot of free publicity. The  Department of Labor is forcing them to pay hundreds of employees and thousands of interpreters close to a million and a half dollars for letting themselves get screwed by blindly signing defective agreements.  The Home Office in what used to be England is also experiencing difficulties with its mass-herding of careless interpreters.

This is evolution in action. Folks who do not bother to put up a website and state their policies are fair game for economic exploitation by bigger fish. Signing contracts without reading and understanding the text is just plain dumb.  When someone baits you with a bad agreement, you can make a counteroffer using standard agreements from the Freelancers Union, the American Translators Association or by writing or having an attorney write you a bid form or agreement boilerplate.
