Conservative altruism versus life

Fake moral compass

Altruism is subjective, anamorphic

Genocide is a social adaptation that observably marches in lockstep with altruism. Altruism itself is variously redefined by collectivists–especially religious conservatives–to infuse it with an odor of scientific eugenics.

This manufactured reaction dates back to Richard Dawkins’ “The Selfish Gene.” The book’s introduction humbly apologizes for unwittingly validating the individualist view of life and survival, especially the way virtue ethics considers values or goodness. Fourteen years before The Selfish Gene, similar ethical conclusions were advanced in Atlas Shrugged, a book organized mysticism struggled to pretend never existed in much the way The Party members in Orwell’s novel 1984 struggled to believe an apostate or “unperson” had never existed. Dawkins, a scientist, was harder to ignore, so distortion was relied on instead.

It is informative that since Dawkins’ writings, the idea of altruists as a race that reproduces sexually is again advanced by religious conservatives as solemnly as though it were a new argument. Bonobo monkeys and other instinctual beasts incapable of conceptual thought are offered by religious conservatives as examples that “prove” that altruism–acting sacrificially to benefit others, not self–is by Revealed ipso facto Definition “the” Good. A reinforcing example is the assertion that female Bonobo monkeys won’t copulate with non-sacrificial males. Leaving aside the yearning for female monkeys as the last possible partners girl-bullying brutes can hope for, the net appeal is to collectivist reproduction increasing the subspecies. Each Selfish Gene applies game theory to survival of the gene pool as accurately as physical phenomena apply efficient paths to conservation of energy transitions.

Yet genes lack the intelligence or moral decision making ability to avoid Malthusian disasters such as occur when population exceeds food supply. Whether conservatives also lack this discernment or simply rely on the Rapture’s host of angels lifting them bodily from the jaws of overpopulation crises leading to war, etc. is not obvious. One possibility is that control over children offers organized mysticism the opportunity to cripple young minds through conditioning and indoctrination. After all, in pre-1911 China, girls were encouraged to cripple themselves by binding their own feet, and actually thought this a “good” thing according to consensus and generally accepted community standards.

A mind is a terrible thing to cripple

Bound feet, crippled from early childhood per custom

The Conservative theory is a rewarming of the old Race Suicide view held by Roosevelt Republicans in 1906. The argument was structured in much the same way Lutheran and Papist nationalsocialism characterized “juden” in Germany’s Altruria as an invasive species that cannot be “assimilated” and must instead, regretfully and with heavy heart, be exterminated like so many Apaches or Comanches. From Adolf Hitler’s Theodoric struggle to use genocide for altruist collectivist eugenics, religious conservatism has lately evolved to Trump’s offer to extirpate the families of unappreciative Semitic tribesmen whose Sharia jurisdictions Christians so eagerly tax us to bomb.

Over a century later mystical ideologues STILL Stand at Armageddon Doing Battle For The Lord, exactly like the fanatical Mohammedans of similar ideology. This is the key difference between religious socialism and individualism. Communists and nationalsocialists never tire of each declaring the other are “not really” altruists. Yet both clearly value coercion, sacrifice, death in their fundamental manifestos. This is a subjective, distorted, unreliable moral compass pointing in the wrong direction in all cases.

Letting these twin variants of the rejection of reason replace science, philosophy–especially ethics–would be suicidal.  Fortunately it isn’t happening. The genocidal rampages of communo-fascist socialism in Germany and Russia were as vivid an object lesson as the amok berserker hijackings into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Communist vote shares in elections are falling like membership in mystical congregations. The Libertarian party is gaining votes and membership while the looter parties are shrinking. You can help by studying virtue ethics, voting and making a small donation to the Libertarian Party.

Either-Or, revisited

You can deal with people by persuasion, that is, voluntarily. The alternative is to do it by force, that is, by threatening to harm or kill them, then killing a statistical sample to show the survivors you mean business. Nearly all who opt for the use of force try to disguise the fact even from themselves–by appeals to altruism. The economic systems that result from each of these alternatives converge on libertarian or totalitarian solutions.

Germany’s Christian National Socialism and Soviet Communism have clearly identified themselves in practice as genocidal slave camps. The two régimes are indistinguishable to anyone save their own brainwashees. Here is how appreciation of the two alternative political systems is shaping up as measured by the ballots cast by voters.

Communism in Russia judged as shown by vote share given to the Communist Party:

Communist religion is fast losing congregants

The trendline shown is a logarithmic decay curve of communist party votes.

The vertical axis is the communist percentage of the votes counted in the past five admittedly rigged and tampered Russian elections.

Libertarian Party popularity in These United States is shaping up as follows:

Voluntary persuasion replaces initiation of harmful and deadly force

US libertarian party vote share data fitted to a sigmoid replacement curve.

These graphs show that the pseudoscientific superstition known as socialism is declining in popularity as fast as its Papist and Lutheran competitors (nationalsocialism). Force-initiating dictatorial political philosophies are being replaced by ethical values that uphold the rights of individuals.

You can hasten this transition by donating to and voting for Libertarian Party candidates (the kind who wrote the 1972 platform language the Supreme Court used in its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision). Voting Republican is ethically the same as supporting German National Socialism. Voting for the Democratic soft machine strengthens the communist and lay socialist ideology that now controls the Democratic party. Both parties have fallen into the hands of violent looters. Your libertarian vote gives them an incentive to snap out of it and focus on reality.

The Alexander Hamilton card

Islam is dry

Pauline Sabine

Alexander Hamilton crafted arguments in favor of adopting the Constitution of the United States to replace the Articles of Confederation. The Federalist was a pamphlet series in which those appeals were circulated.

Of special importance is Federalist #78, concerned with the design of the Judicial Branch. In it he argues that the judicial branch offers safeguards against “occasional ill humors” liable to cause the “injury of the private rights of particular classes of citizens, by unjust and partial laws.” Moving on to the heart of the matter, Hamilton urged:

Here also the firmness of the judicial magistracy is of vast importance in mitigating the severity and confining the operation of such laws. It not only serves to moderate the immediate mischiefs of those which may have been passed, but it operates as a check upon the legislative body in passing them; who, perceiving that obstacles to the success of iniquitous intention are to be expected from the scruples of the courts, are in a manner compelled, by the very motives of the injustice they meditate, to qualify their attempts. This is a circumstance calculated to have more influence upon the character of our governments, than but few may be aware of.

Herbert Hoover’s aid and comfort shielded Germany from repayment of war reparations and other debts owed to the countries it had shelled and invaded–and to fools who offered them loans. Hoover’s Moratorium on Brains was a crime against the U.S. Constitution. Under the US 14th Amendment–the one that protects women’s right to choose–those debts would “not be questioned.” But the Prohibition Amendment had altered the Constitution into an instrument for the initiation of force. The Prohibition Party had changed America the way the National Socialist party was affecting Germany, likewise a 98% Catholic and Protestant nation. This was accomplished with 1.4% of the vote in 11 political campaigns.

The Supreme Court had given legitimacy to the nation’s domination by mystical fanatics whose laws made light beer a federal felony.  Its imprimatur was stamped on the Minnesota Congressman Andrew Volstead’s enforcement act. The Court had explained, in it’s decision that Dred Scott, a brown person, was not entitled to the rights of citizenship, and that the Fugitive Slave Act demanded his deportation into slavery under “the present Constitution of the United States.” That 1857 Constitution gave way to one abolishing slavery while smuggling deficit spending into the 14th Amendment–Red Republicans saw to that!

But Hamilton never counted on “domination by religious fanatics” in the place of “ocasional ill humors.”  It took the Liberal Party platform, the American Association Against the Prohibition Amendment and Pauline Sabin, leader of  the Women’s Organization for National Prohibition Reform to wrest power from the hands of the Prohibition Party-Klan-Republican Axis of Evil and repeal Prohibition.   That voter resolve came from the realization that Prohibition collapsed the economy, just as it did again in 1987 and again in 2007!

A vote for the Libertarian Party is worth 6 to 6000 votes wasted on the looter Kleptocracy. Same goes for your dollar donations. Green card holders are allowed to donate money to the Libertarian Party as well.

Ticking Turing Machines

Why did British codebreakers—Polish codebreakers, actually–call their cipher machines “bombes”?

Background: before National and International Socialism signed the pact agreeing it was OK to invade and dismember Poland, Polish mathematicians were already working on breaking Enigma machine codes. These gadgets used wired wheels inserted into a cipher machine to scramble and unscramble text. Since business and Die Ewige Staat are much the same in Germanic Altrurias, commercial Enigma machines quickly evolved into military coders to meet the exigencies of the initiation of force. The initiation encountered resistance, much as in Newton’s Second Law, and war was declared.

After actual bombs rained down on British assets, the folks at Bletchley Park hired Alan Turing to work on decryption. Alan was comfortable with mechanical approaches and improved codebreaking machines the Poles called “bombes.” Why bombes?

The explanation in several Turing books that mention the name had to do with the ticking sound they made. The writers then leapt to the conclusion of ticking time bombs, nèe (or is it née?) “bombes,” Quod Erat Demonstratum. This explanation was, for some reason, facile and unsatisfactory.

Another unsatisfactory answer to a simple question was given by a couple of Brazilian students being prodded, poked, inspected and detected by Amerika’s own imitation of Germanic Altrurian officiousness. I refer, of course, to the Transport Sozialist Arbeiterpartei, affectionately dubbed the Tea Essay at U.S. airports. The unionized government employee doing the poking, prodding, inspecting and detecting produced from their luggage a plastic box with some heft to it, a wire going in and a tube coming out, and asked “Wuz dis?”

The Brazilian students knew exactly what it was: an aquarium pump to keep tropical fish from drowning—a bomba de ar.
“Eat ease a air bomb,” they replied politely–albeit none too fluently–and were immediately surrounded by semiliterate steroid abusers First Responders™ with loaded guns, handcuffs, pepper spray, clubs, nylon straps, badges and governmental impunity.

So returning to the bombes that defeated Europe’s christianizing eugenics program:
Q: what goes tick tick tick and is familiar to Polish scientists?

A: a vacuum pump.

Mentation and Malingering

Positive Christianity, Altruism, Duty

Painter of churches, Jesus and Madonnas honored

We imagine we understand malingering–at least until, upon reflection, the concept turns up surprises. Feigning illness or injury to avoid physical labor is the familiar meme. But what about feigning injury, outrage, condescension, pity, insanity or disbelief in order to avoid the necessity of thinking? “That can’t be right” is a wishful reply made by many a fool whose lunch tab added up to more cash than he carried. Other instances are not so trivial.

Mental malingering is the most popular form of self-deception engaged in by altruists of both the “left” and “right.”
Those that describe themselves as “conservative” commit thought-malingering no less assiduously others who, with equal smugness, describe themselves as “left-wing.”

Take the bell in the picture. No conservative can look at it and simultaneously realize that Adolf Hitler represented most of the voters in 98% Christian Germany. Yet every religious conservative defends at least half of Hitler’s 1920 National Socialist platform. Conservatives manage this by never reading the original, and imagining in its place some egotistical writings of a socialist atheist “madman.” Germany’s mystics engaged in the same self-deception. The fairly recent hagiography movie of Sophie Scholl (of The White Rose student protest group) injected gratuitous lines to depict Positive Christian National Socialists as virtually identical to Bolshevik atheists. Even the flyers for which these students were put to death specifically referred to Christian National Socialist Policies as “atheistic.” No religious conservative–German or American–can bear to admit that Adolf Hitler ran a christian religious conservative government complete with transfer payments from producers to non-producers and eugenics policies to build the “New Race” of Herbert Hoover’s inaugural speech..

Similarly, left wing socialists, communists and anti-industrial collectivists deny that Hitler was a socialist–a fact known to everyone on the planet before 1939.  But they do join mystical conservative bretheren in denying absolutely that there is anything altruistic about the National Socialist belief in “The Common Good Before the Individual Good.”
Looters of the bureaucratic persuasion swear hotly, loudly and vehemently that every communist government was “not really” socialist. This appeal to volume or carpet-biting is another form of malingering to avoid mentation.

The common ground both altruist factions share is the proof-by-insistence that there is something good about altruism and sacrifice. But to this day none have stepped forward to explicitly state what it is. What they do agree on, as a sort of corrolary Revelation or belief, is that the initiation of force must also be defended against all comers as the end-all Final Solution to all problems real or imaginary. What is clear–especially after demonstrations at Alamogordo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki–is that unsuperstitious science has retaliatory capabilities that have made the wholesale initiation of force as suicidal as its proponents have always wished it could be.

The word comprehensive

The guy the Republicans hired to win the election likes two things: libertarianism and the word “comprehensive.”

The libertarian part is easy to understand. It was Trumps way of telling God’s Own Prohibitionists that he could hand them government jobs or hand them another beating–the same way Ross Perot got George Holy War Bush fired.

But my favorite Soviet website (we will Doonesbury you), recently took issue with the word comprehensive. After JFK negotiated the Limited Test Ban to keep strontium 90 out of children’s milk, communist intellectuals sought to puff comprehensive up into the entering wedge for unilaterally disarming the USA. That ran aground on the Second Amendment. So after the Soviet bloc collapsed like a Berlin Wall or US Embassy in Saigon, “comprehensive” went out of fashion. This graph shows the decline and fall of the word “comprehensive” before Trump.

Look into my eyes...

Go ahead, try it yourself

This we know from Wolfram Alpha, a collection of programmers who appreciate math AND language. The graph shows a falloff in stock (quotes, usage) for comprehensive dating from about the time the looters started mothballing their tens of thousands of fusion bombs after the failure of The Altrurian Experiment in the crumbling Soviet Empire. So, why is this important?

The current president got the nomination ten months after saying something nice about a burgeoning minor party. Four months later he was President and Libertarian Party stock (in votes) was up 328%. If comprehensive is welcomed back into the vernacular, its reformation glittering over its faults, that would suggest there is some truth to “master of hypnosis” theories for Trump being elected.

If it doesn’t, the fact would lend weight to the theory that infiltrators in the Democratic party platform committee threw the election by injecting the platform with pseudoscience depicting reliable electric power plants as a life-threatening plague. This was the way all US power generation facilities were depicted during the Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko, Gorbachev and Yanayev dictatorships. The 2016 Republican platform also broke ranks with Prohibition Party’s ecological nationalsocialism planks of 2016:

We advocate… subsidies for consumers wishing to change from fossil fuels to renewable domestic sources of energy.
We believe that climatic change is an existential threat to civilization.

The Gee Oh Pee urinalysis platform trashed carbon taxes, promised to toss the Paris Capitulation into the same dustbin as the Kyoto Proctocol. The platform protects power plants and fuel from fanatical fearmongers, and even improves transmission line infrastructure.

The Libertarian party platform is also in favor of access to energy. Here is the LP energy plank in its clear and unambiguous entirety:

While energy is needed to fuel a modern society, government should not be subsidizing any particular form of energy. We oppose all government control of energy pricing, allocation, and production.

Can you say Hockey Stick?

WANTED: Fisher-Pry least-squares curve fit for these burgeoning vote counts

But what of that hockey-stick growth in Libertarian spoiler votes? Did the LP suddenly become popular because a real-estate mesmerist admitted to liking libertarianism? Perhaps it was because the recycled Republican candidate the LP resorted to abandoned his 2012 promise to try to bring back the coathanger abortion laws struck down by the reincarnation of the 1972 LP birth control plank as the lead paragraph in the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. Is there a third hypothesis? Perhaps the American voter is discovering that the less you try to coerce others, the less others will respond in that particular kind.

Do you ever need simultaneous interpretation of a speech, or sight translation of a legal document?

God, Government Guns & Graft

Prohibition Party bigotry still writes the platform of the Republican Party, as it has since the 1870s, to the detriment of individual rights in the State of Texas.

Satan's Burning Bush!

Kid, we don’t like your kind

America’s political equivalent of the Mohammedan Islamic State, The Prohibition Party, recognizing God as the source of all governmental authority, even today makes totalitarian declarations of principles and policies:

1. We would deploy sufficient resources to stop all illegal traffic in people and drugs across America’s land and sea borders.
2. We deplore the recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court on same-sex marriage as an abomination to God.
3. We consider abortion to be morally repugnant.
4. We advocate… subsidies for consumers wishing to change from fossil fuels to renewable domestic sources of energy.
5. We believe that climatic change is an existential threat to civilization.
6. Beverage alcohol is America’s #1 narcotic drug problem.
7. Prohibitionists oppose the traffic in… Cannabis and so-called “hard drugs”…

Observe the disconnect between hallucinatory coercive obeisance to invisible masters and the facts of reality. When the Republicans were running Sarah Palin on a platform to use armed government agents to coerce Planned Parenthood physicians, the Prohibition party platform read: “We recognize that, according to the Constitution, ‘no person’ (including those unborn) ‘shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.’”

The Fourteenth Amendment of 1868 begins with: Section 1. All persons born… The Amendment was passed under a Republican Administration elected when many Democratic states were under military occupation, and the Republican party claimed 63% of the electoral votes. Prohibitionists contradict their own puppet régime out of zeal to coerce women.

Yet when Palin was candidate in 2008–seven years after Saudi religious fanatics attacked civilian skyscrapers and retaliated against the military-industrial complex on U.S. soil–the God’s authority party also declared: We favor continued prohibition of such harmful drugs as heroin, LSD, cocaine, and marijuana. The Stockholm Syndrome has never been more glaringly evident than in this dedication to violent, faith-based policies.

Now compare the Libertarian Party platform. Our 1972 abortion plank became Roe v. Wade and sparked the lighting of crosses by enraged prohibitionists. On immigration, Libertarians are not keen to import dangerous mystical fanatics nor prop up fanatical dictatorships whose prohibitionist coercion cause violence, collapse and fleeing refugees.

Libertarians have no interest in coercing or alienating gays, or countenancing superstitious opprobrium directed at women who practice birth control on a crowded planet. Nor do most Libertarians, many with training in science and math, perceive clear evidence for the existence of Global Warming. We advocate no fuel subsidies from producers to non-producers. Nor do we ascribe to that particular pseudoscience, or to the more ancient pseudoscientific assertions of prohibitionism, grounds for emergency police powers disruptive of the economy of a free society.

True, Prohibitionists have toned down their demands in step with Prohibition spoiler vote increases, and keep a low profile nowadays. But so does the CPUSA. Nobody who reads today’s Democratic party dogma can fail to spot its source of inspiration at CPUSA.org and European-style Green parties any more than Republican watchers can overlook the ominous parallels most boastfully set forth at Prohibitionists.org and in the National Socialist platform and in other socialist and theocratic requests for the coercion of citizens.
