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?

Why not delve into what sort of voting caused the 1929 Crash? Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 does exactly that, matching newspaper accounts against stock market reactions and competing theories. It is live on Amazon Kindle for the price of a pint.

Why Ecological National Socialism?

 

national socialist child

Every European country that 80 years ago welcomed liberation from greed by Christian National Socialist altruism is again raising the banner of government control over trade and production with pseudoscience reinforced with child corn. No less corny than Soviet propaganda exploiting youths in their twenties, today’s creepy Econazi propaganda again focusses on children below the age of consent.

Energy in wartime is a primary target. The hidden persuaders brainwashing children with fear of imaginary hobgoblins are continuing warfare to replace freedom with coercion by other means. The main reason this is working is because Republican partisans are loudly defending the generation of electric power while at the same time shooting and jailing youth to force them to pay beverage excise taxes instead of enjoying plant leaf products. With friends like Dixiecrat mystical fanatics eager to coerce women of childbearing age, who needs enemies? Here is the face of the Republican party at age 165.

Republicans began as a Platonist communist movement which later joined forces with movements against chattel slavery. Uncle Tom’s Cabin featured Red Republicanism in a walk-on role in opposition to Southern policies of “Christianizing” captured Africans with a whip. Meanwhile, British and French marines were attacking imperial Chinese shorelines and rivers while Taeping Christian converts massacred from within–to dump Indian and Vietnamese opium at prices inflated by China’s ban on native cultivation. American Civil War massacres over the incompatibility of protective tariffs and colonial-style slaveholding occurred in parallel. British capital, formerly invested in American bonds, was withdrawn and shifted to finance naval attacks on China, and land warfare in India and Afghanistan in the gradual buildup to mutinies, Boxer Revolt, Republican rebellion and WWI.

Christian populists and prohibitionists saddled the nation with economy-wrecking income tax and prohibition amendments, then split. William Jennings Bryan’s ku-klux populists and drys took over the Republican party and Bellamy-Howells communists hung their feedbag of spoiler votes on the Dems. Herbert Hoover enforcement wrecked the economy and no Republicans won the top offices until after the Korean entanglement, when Nixon became vice-President and hydrogen bombs appeared in military parades.

Sending the Dixiecrat message to Washington

The face of ignorant superstition in America

After JFK was shot, Republicans exploited Southern children celebrating a reprieve from forced busing. A racial collectivist Dixiecrat movement split off from the Solid South to follow George Wallace, then switch allegiance to the G.O.P. once Wallace was crippled and Bobby Kennedy killed by gunfire.  Bombs rained down on Vietnam, in a religious war between native Asian religions and idolatrous French drug producers–at least that’s the war THEY had been fighting a century prior to U.S. meddling.

Since that time, fanatical prohibitionists have struggled to restore the intolerant theocracy of 1928 and restore Reconstruction-era Comstock laws keeping women in their place by fines and imprisonment backed by threat of deadly force. In an age of biological and nuclear weaponry, surely humanity has outgrown pseudoscience and superstition as pretexts for the initiation of force. Race-suicide eugenicist pseudoscience currently warring with imaginary global warming fear-mongering have taken science and freedom out of the picture entirely as far as old and senile kleptocracy parties are concerned. Yet those parties’ appeals to the violence of law can only endanger bystanders through their neighborhood effects. Foremost among these are the reactions of women coerced as racial breeders, and the children and grandchildren of Woodstock Nation who are fed up with being shot and jailed.

The law-changing message till-tapping kleptocrats understand is third-party spoiler votes. Communist and fascist party spoiler votes steered us into today’s mess. Anti-violence libertarian spoiler votes can steer us back out and restore Constitutional Democracy protected by the Bill of Rights. All it takes is for you to forsake fear. Voting Libertarian is hedging against violence in the same leveraged way that financial derivatives contracts are a hedge against losses caused by the sort of price swings that violence begets. Voting with integrity to make office-seekers mindful of what you value is your highly-leveraged investment in the replacement of coercion by freedom.

Pascal’s Climate Wager

The reaction to recent elections displayed by most of those I observe–in Brazil and in the USA–resembles nothing so much as the Two Minutes Hate described by George Orwell. Orwell was the journalist Her Majesty’s Government sent to Germany in May or June of 1945 to reconnoiter and report on what there was to observe amid the vanquished NSDAP. Orwell observed miserable socialists staving amid ruins, dressed in ersatz paper clothing disintegrating into rags. Those memories came to life in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.  

Goldstein was delivering his usual venomous attack upon the doctrines of the Party–an attack so exaggerated and perverse that a child should have been able to see through it, and yet just plausible enough to fill one with an alarmed feeling that other people, less level-headed than oneself, might be taken in by it. He was abusing Big Brother, he was denouncing the dictatorship of the Party, he was demanding the immediate conclusion of peace with Eurasia, he was advocating freedom of speech, freedom of the Press, freedom of assembly, freedom of thought, he was crying hysterically that the revolution had been betrayed…

Immanuel Goldstein: the original Global Warming Skeptic!

Now it is 2016, and the energy totalitarians infiltrating the Democratic party have caused that party’s womens’ rights agenda to be crushed by equally fanatical anti-choice totalitarians infiltrating the Republican party. So the Dilbert hypnotist-cartoonist who predicted this election outcome is working on a different filter for Radioactive PoisoningNuclear War, Nuclear Winter, The Coming Ice Age, Misanthropomorphic Global Warming, um… Climate Change?? Politicians and doomcriers have trotted out so many lame hobgoblins to frighten the ignorant that it is sometimes difficult to remember which are still fashionable and which “discredited,” old-fashioned, or out-of-date.

I dislike Scott Adams’ assumptions and find fault with his methods of inference. But his prediction that The Don would win the election, 4 to 1 odds against at Paddypower be damned, impressed me. Science is in the business of forming testable hypotheses and learning from how well they perform. All the antinuclear Millerites’ predictions failed—especially the surrender of the entire planet and its incorporation into Soviet Socialism. Theirs was a sort of Pascal’s Wager on the assumption that only the surrenderists were right, since only they had access to the inside scoop. Unfortunately, the unfalsifiable inside scoop, like Pascal’s Wager, made for predictions that were wrong. Global Warming prophets likewise relied on fear and assumptions rather than measurement and testing of hypotheses. The election result predictors–pollsters, prophets and bookies alike–also failed, to my immense surprise.

In Pascal’s day—specifically when he was eleven years old—the Holy Roman Apostolic Church burned one of its own priests at the stake for thoughtcrime everybody agreed had taken place at a nunnery. But Grandier had never so much as set foot inside of the nunnery. Young Pascal observed that facts did not matter in questions of his life and death. What mattered was consensus.

So it is not surprising that Pascal’s Wager comes across as a restatement of the supposition that the mob will burn you alive unless you parrot whatever the mob was duped into believing. Disguising the rationalization by papering it over with doublethink instead of admitting it is superstition is simply treacle on the pill. Any two superstitious mobs are all the pretext that is needed for Crusades, Jihads and thermonuclear combat over some trifling inanity way off to the right of the decimal place. I am indebted to Aldous Huxley, Eric Blair’s schoolmaster at Eton, for his presentation of the intellectual results of French catholicism in “The Devils of Loudon.” The book is out in English and Portuguese and there is even a really bad movie it spawned in the seventies. The silliness of Pascal’s wager, like the Emperor’s New Clothes wardrobe, becomes more transparent the closer you examine it.

I am mainly worried about the side effects of pseudoscience and superstition. That Mohammedans open boiled eggs at the skinny end and Christians at the fat end is of no consequence to me, nor will I take up cudgels for breaking eggs in the middle. It is the bloodlust—like the dog going batty when the other dogs all bark in unison at the Invasion of the Trash Collectors—that causes me just enough concern to pick up a pen and point out how foolish the whole show looks. I do this mainly so that I can enjoy electrical power and other harmless freedom (when it’s religiously fanatical Luddites barking). Nobel laureate physicist Ivar Giaever speaks for me on the absolutely unfounded assertions and moronic claims of this latest batch of looter ex-scientists, their flawed models and their WRONG predictions.

(Disclosure) I vote the straight Libertarian Party ticket, and I’m proud of it!
