Critical Mass–the unbook

Learn why energy became expensive and scarce

Another example of deliberate mutilation of language to disguise awkward facts is the title of the book Critical Mass by Jacque Srouji It originally sold for $11.95, cloth, 409pp., Aurora Publishers, 118 16th Ave. So., Nashville, TN 37203) and used copies may be found through Bookfinder.com online.

Unfortunately, the book is the work of a professional journalist of the same caliber as Eric Zuesse, author of “Love Canal, The Truth Leaks Out.” But search for it and Google filters out everything except bike clubs, pseudoscientific prohibitionism, shrieking hate groups and jihadists for “settled” pseudoscience.

The author, a professional journalist, started out as an anti-nuclear crusader. “One point I learned immediately: anti-nuke copy makes great reading and is a writer’s dream to shape and color. There are so many scary possibilities. . .” Her investigations soon uncovered the truth about nuclear power and its critics, as must have been the case for hundreds of other journalists who lack Mrs. Srouji’s integrity. The same thing happened to this writer. I was swayed by cant, propaganda and lying into picking an argument with nuclear advocate Jerry Pournelle. Pournelle set me straight, and the Travis County Libertarian Party informed me of Petr Beckmann’s “The Health Hazards of NOT Going Nuclear.

Beckmann’s book, like Strouji’s is never disputed or denied. Both are unmentioned down a memory hole by the liars they debunk, and their sponsors and abettors. But the fact remains that Energy translates into Work, as in work for a living. The freedom to harness energy naturally results in work done, wealth produced, life expectancy increased and totalitarian slavery embarrassed. The “energy slaves” R. Buckminster Fuller used to describe megawatts are what replace the chattel slavery that existed under Christian and Mohammedan mercantilism, Nationalsocialism and Soviet socialism. Every reduction in nuclear output capacity is a health hazard because a health hazard is that which reduced the life expectancy of a given population. Antinuclear activism is therefore mass murder.

So how did humanity repay Mrs. Srouji for publishing the meticulously documented truth? The publisher reveals in a foreword that she was fired from her job as a copy editor of the Nashville Tennessean, suffered a miscarriage, was sued by a host of anti-nukes, accused of being an FBI informer by some (a Soviet spy by others), and harassed in every conceivable way.

Thanks to the same liars who libeled nuclear energy into suspended animation and invented a nonexistent ozone crisis, fools shiver and sweat lest the Holy Inquisition of State Science Institute brainwashers cast them down into the fiery pit of Misanthropic Global Warming. Lost is their opportunity to have cheap and abundant energy, economic growth and increased life expectancy.

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.

Shoot them hippies and brown folks

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.

Climate Change & Nonaggression Pact

National Socialist–Soviet Socialist Pact, (August 23, 1939)–Paris “Agreement” November 4, 2016… a comparison

The National Socialist–Soviet Socialist pact is also called the Hitler-Stalin Pact, the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, the Nazi–Soviet Pact and the German–Soviet Non-aggression Pact and Russo-German Pact.** In much the way Global Cooling morphed into Anthropomorphic Global Warming, then (to cover all bases) Climate Change (which was everywhere long before mankind).  All of this is old hat. Externally, the socialist “non-aggression” treaty was short and flowery, with phrases like:

In any event both Governments will resolve this (Poland) question by means of a friendly agreement.”

and

“Should disputes or conflicts arise between the High Contracting Parties over problems of one kind or another, both parties shall settle these disputes or conflicts exclusively through friendly exchange of opinion or, if necessary, through the establishment of arbitration commissions.”

The treaty closed with a nondisclosure agreement that masked the existence of additional deals, but the thing was outwardly cute and fuzzy, as one might expect from neighboring altruistic People’s States. The fact remained that the preceding war had been largely a dispute over heroin markets in which to sell Papaver somniferum products grown in the Balkan States. Those markets and competition still existed in 1939.  The secret additional deals amounted to a divvying-up of the opium-producing Balkan States.

When the Democratic Party gained power after the George Waffen Bush asset-forfeiture crash and depression, it preserved existing domestic prohibition, high-taxes, asset forfeiture looting and other victimless “crime” legislation. However, stung by the Y2K election results in which the Green Party weighed in with enough spoiler votes to block Democrats from jobs, boodle and pelf, the Democratic platform committee hewed as close to the Republican line as possible–except for the part about trying to ban reliable power generation.

Bans on reliable power generation have been enacted in the People’s State of Australia (which replaced voluntary democracy with mandatory voting), and the Democratic People’s Republic of Germany. In both cases, utility bills skyrocketed and rolling blackouts and brownouts became familiar features of the environment. These provide pretexts for additional regulatory meddling. The result of curtailment of power generation anywhere is a net increase in the mortality rate in those places–in other words, a health hazard.

This latest Paris pact aimed at lowering life expectancy is couched in the most florid prose imaginable:

(c) Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development

Translation: (c) Robbing taxpayers and monopoly victims to subsidize unreliable energy experiments

Propaganda expert George Orwell commented on totalitarian persuasion:

It is important to notice that the cult of power tends to be mixed up with a love of cruelty and wickedness FOR THEIR OWN SAKES. A tyrant is all the more admired if he happens to be a bloodstained crook as well, and ‘the end justifies the means’ often becomes, in effect, ‘the means justify themselves provided they are dirty enough’. This idea colours the outlook of all sympathizers with totalitarianism, and accounts, for instance, for the positive delight with which many English intellectuals greeted the Nazi-Soviet pact. (George Orwell)

Russo-German Pact of 1939. [Note 1, below] And when news of the Pact broke, the most wildly divergent explanations were of it were given, and predictions were made which were falsified almost immediately, being based in nearly every case not on a study of probabilities but on a desire to make the U.S.S.R. seem good or bad, strong or weak. (Orwell)

-issues like Poland, the Spanish civil war, the Russo-German pact, and so forth, are debarred from serious discussion, and that if you possess information that conflicts with the prevailing orthodoxy you are expected to either distort it or keep quiet about it–(Orwell)

If this sounds like 2017, welcome to the world of alternative facts.

** [Note 1: An example is the Russo-German Pact, which is being effaced as quickly as possible from public memory. A Russian correspondent informs me that mention of the Pact is already being omitted from Russian year-books which table recent political events. (George Orwell)]

There is a genuine non-aggression principle that socialists struggle to evade:

“I hereby certify that I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals.”

This is the pledge required to join or donate to the Libertarian Party.

Prophesying Hobgoblins

R. Crumb, cartoonist, 1977

This is your brain on TeeVee

HL Mencken observed that looter politicians trot out an endless stream of hobgoblins to frighten the rubes into wanting a State of Fear. People who watch teevee, instead of reading, grab my sleeve to warn me about Clinton’s secret ambitions or Trump’s subconscious plans. When I ask how they found out, off they go after other sleeves to clutch–or demand instantly verifiable proof that their pathetic fears are false. The more mystical the voter, the more susceptible to frightened gibberish and unfalsifiable ravings.

Favorites include: Hillary will in the future appoint judges who will strike down the Second Amendment. The possibility that the Senate might refuse to confirm anti-Constitutional judges, never crosses their minds. Illiterate to a man, the terrified are completely unaware of what it takes to strike down a Constitutional Amendment, so “what’s to stop her” sounds like a question, but is really a cry of fear that a GIRL might be elected and the GOP lose some more jobs. The President, as Elihu Root explained to Herbert Hoover in December of 1929, has no power whatsoever to interfere in Constitutional amendments:

The Constitution does not contemplate any relation of the President to its amendment.  You can veto any other form of legislative action but you do not have that power in relation to Constitutional amendments.  That distinction was made for the definite purpose of holding alterations of the Constitution away from the President, who is solely an enforcement officer in this relation.

Root, it turns out, had himself tried to get the Supreme Court to strike down the Prohibition Amendment and failed. So the possibility remains that The Almighty Dollar will miraculously cause two-thirds of the Senate to confirm anti-Constitutional judges. Mammon could then cause them to refuse to enforce an Amendment–if the price were right. This, thanks to the Democratic and Republican parties, had actually happened ten years earlier, in Schenck v. US. The First, Fifth and Thirteenth Amendments were summarily but temporarily nullified by the looter-appointed Supreme Court in a case where the accused passed out copies of the Anti-Slavery Amendment to men waiting in line to be drafted into WWI.

The court used the “shouting fire in a crowded theater” excuse to send the pamphleteer to prison for handing & mailing out a piece of paper urging the Bill of Rights.
Mammon entered the picture when neutral American banks and industry, emboldened by the Federal Reserve Act three years earlier, began loaning money and selling goods on credit to British and French belligerents in the 1914 War, while Russia fought beside them. A LOT of money, materials and foodstuffs went “Over There.”

After the communist revolution took Russia out of the war, Germany might have won. These States would have lost the money they had fronted Britain and France. Mammon and the Court therefore decreed the First, Fifth and Thirteenth Amendments were not important compared to those war loans outstanding. But those Amendments are still there in case the Court needs to club someone over the head with them at some future date, perhaps with less money on the table.

The moral of the story is that it would take LOTS of money to quash the Second Amendment.  But crime is way down, and ALL recent Supreme Court decisions have favored Open Carry, less regulation, shorter forms, and with weed becoming legal, yesterday’s “felons” will be just plain folks again.

The only amendment ever repealed was the Prohibition Amendment, by ratification of the 21st Amendment, which struck it down but assigned the States the power to make light beer a felony and murder entire families–with federal assistance–to enforce all related laws. This process began in 1933 after Herbert Hoover’s asset-forfeiture strategy brought on the Crash and depression had wrecked the economy. Two-thirds of the states won the race to ratify begun in March, but it took till December, with tens of billions of dollars and long jail sentences for millionaires in the balance. Twenty-four years would pass before the Republicans ever elected another President.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties insist on federal prohibition and the communist manifesto income tax–things that cause militarized police to jail and shoot our kids, and destroy the economy, causing depressions, repossessions and unemployment. More to the point, no self-respecting American woman of childbearing age wants anything to do with the kind of man who would use government force to compel her to act against her will and better judgment. George Waffen Bush destroyed the economy to please faith-based, ku-klux, mystical fanatics and his party deserves to be abolished and replaced. The honest and constructive way to man up and make things better in 2016 is to vote Libertarian or just stay home, like Scott Adams.
