For your own sake- just don’t

December 8, 2016

If you hate (or fear) someone so much that you feel the need to advocate government to deal with them, you may not be on the side of liberty.

I see some do this with “immigrants“, “drug” users or dealers, bigots, etc.

You probably ought to realize that the State is a bigger threat than anything you might want to use it against. It’s like aiming a shotgun at your own head because you want to kill the fly on the other side of you. Using the State may seem like the only way, but it is ultimately suicidal in every case. Just don’t.

Ignoring reality has consequences

December 7, 2016

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for December 7, 2016)

When you ignore the rules of reality, you get hurt.

Notice I don’t say when you break reality’s rules, because those rules can’t be broken. They can only be accepted or ignored. Ignore them at your peril… read the rest

Note- I’m not sure what happened today, but I think that soon the newspaper columns will only be available online for the paper’s subscribers. If/when that happens, I may stop posting the link that day, waiting until the exclusivity runs out after 30 days, and I can post the whole thing here. But, I’ll fall off that bridge when I come to it.

"Law people"

December 6, 2016

Don’t be “law people”. I’m not even talking about lawyers, cops, judges and such- I am talking about normal, every day people who really have nothing to do with “laws“, but who choose to worry about them anyway.

Those are the people who hate something and think it’s wrong because it’s illegal. The ones who oppose Cannabis but not aspirin, due to the different ways the “law” treats the substances.

“Law people” ask “Is that legal?” before doing something. Or, say “But that’s illegal!” when someone else starts to do something.

“Law people” disgust me.

Statist "flaggotry"- no, not Trump’s

November 30, 2016
As a little bonus, for amusement purposes, (if you have Facebook, check this out: link)

Here is all that has been posted so far. I may or may not update- you get the gist:

My original post was this…

If I’m dumb enough to waste money on a Holy Pole Quilt, it is mine and I can burn it or bury road kill wrapped in it or do whatever I want with it.
In the same way, you are free to worship any Holy Pole Quilt you own, in any way you wish to worship it.
You are NOT free to dictate what others do with their pole quilts, and if you archate against anyone because of what they do with their pole quilts, you are the bad guy. And, if you get grumpy over what people do with their own pole quilts, you have upside-down priorities.

D B: I totally disagree that just anyone should be allowed to own an American Flag… and at one time this was true….

Me: “Allowed”?

D B: Right…the American Flag should not be ‘for sale’…so that any PUNK can buy it and desecrate it… I am FOR severe PENalties levied for any PUNK that desecrates our Flag…

Me: Who would you have enforce that prohibition, and what sorts of aggression would you use to back it up?
(Plus, it isn’t the “American flag”, it is “the US flag”)

D B: Schematics… and who in the hell do you think enFORCEs our laws?

Me:  “Our laws”? I have no “laws” other than the laws of physics which don’t need to be enforced.
I do follow the Zero Aggression Principle, which is simply a promise from me to you that I will not initiate force or violate your property- and may defend myself from those who violate me or my property- but it isn’t something like a “law” that I can impose on you and force you to follow.

D B: In 1968, Congress approved the Federal Flag Desecration Law after a Vietnam War protest. The law made it illegal to “knowingly” cast “contempt” upon “any flag of the United States by publicly mutilating, defacing, defiling, burning or trampling upon it.”

D B: I don’t know who the hell you think you are but if you live and work in These United States, you must follow our laws or PAY the consequences…

Me: Human invented legislation isn’t law. And writing up some counterfeit rules doesn’t make them legitimate.(Also, I believe you meant “semantics” above… but maybe not.)

D B:  It IS law, violate it and you are a CRIMINAL that needs to be PENalized….
Me: Everything has consequences. If I don’t comply with the rapist, there will be consequences. Your “laws” are just the demands of a gang of rapists writ large.

D B: When I don’t agree with a law, I work to get it changed..I don’t just IGNORE it and do what I want…that is the mindset of a criminal…..

Me: I am proud to be an outlaw, because the “law” is counterfeit. You would be one to insist that the “Black” slaves stay slaves until the “law” changed. That is evil.

D B:  Think whatever you want but burn our flag in public and you will go to prison and I for one will be on board with it. BTW, if you want to burn the flag inside your own home…go for it…just don’t do it in PUBLIC…

D B:  You have the mindset of a criminal and I bet your pipe is full of whacky weed.. lol

Me: You would be wrong. I guess to you anyone who is able to tell the difference between “Legal” and “right” is a criminal. That’s the mindset of a slave.

___________________________
Then, under a different thread:

D B:  Btw, Kent….if I see anyone burn our Flag, I will not ALLOW them to get away with it… understand me, boy??

Me: You and I don’t own a flag in common, but OK.Yep. Threats of violence- just what I expect from statists.

D B:  Shove your labels where the sun don’t shine and I don’t make threats, I speak FACTS…

Me: A statist is a person who believes that governing others is a legitimate human endeavor. If that doesn’t apply to you, then please say so, clearly.
And, yes, apparently you do make threats- and then lie about it. If what you say above doesn’t qualify as a threat, then nothing does. I guess you are lucky I don’t believe in “laws”, or I’d be using them against you right now. LOL

D B: Like it or not, whilst on American Soil, you will follow OUR laws or be arrested, prosecuted and hopefully put away where you belong.. I like to see the accused make their case to a jury and get a Jury Nullification on bad laws but a law against our national flag burning is one I stand for.. for all the men and women who spilled their blood so our flag can still stand…

Me: There is so much nonsense in that I don’t even know where to begin. You are deep into the cult.

D B: YOU are the non-sensible one who beLIEves you can pick and choose what laws you want to follow or not… grow up, boy… actually, I don’t care what you do, you are destined for a cage IF you practice what you preach which I doubt…a computer warrior who talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk… or you would be in jail.. lol

D B: A threat is a person or thing likely to cause damage or danger…..Your own actions create the damage or danger …but so typical of a criminal mindset to blame others…

Me: So, you believe you are “law abiding”? (You aren’t.)
http://www.businessinsider.com/henry-blodget-you-commit-three-felonies-a-day-2009-9
A threat is also a statement of intention to harm someone- which you did. You are a criminal- in the worst sense of the word- in more ways than one.

D B: I am law abiding to the best of my ability… I do not go about with the INTENT to break laws… understand the difference, boy? You have a very juvenile way of thinking…and as I said, if I don’t like a law, I work to get it changed whilst lazy azz punks like yourself just go about violating our laws and spew Freeman on the land, Natural Man, sovereign citizen BS… lol

Me: You’re silly. But it’s amusing to watch you try to wiggle out of the pit you have dug for yourself.

D B:  LOL You call this ‘wiggling’?? I’ve danced with far more nefarious punks than you…

Me: See what I mean? LOL

D B:  NO… you and I are on the same page but we have far different ways of achieving our goals..

All assistance should be voluntary

November 30, 2016

(My Eastern New Mexico News [formerly the Clovis News Journal] column for November 30, 2016)

Help one another, voluntarily (my chosen headline)

It is once again the season to remember the less fortunate. On one hand, you shouldn’t need an annual reminder to be good to other people, but on the other hand, sometimes it’s fortunate the calendar has a few such reminders built in.

If someone wants to help those in need, there is nothing stopping her from freely giving her own money and time to those she feels deserve help.

Yet most who feel more money should be spent on their favorite government programs are never content to simply chip in– they demand laws forcing everyone else to do the same…read the rest

No reason to fear liberty

November 27, 2016

(My Clovis News Journal column for October 26, 2016)

 Don’t be scared of liberty (my chosen headline)

Real liberty can be scary. It feels safer to hand your responsibilities to someone else.

Don’t educate your children; hand them over to be schooled instead. Don’t protect yourself and your property; live as a distracted lamb and let the police protect you. Don’t watch yourself and your surroundings as you drive; depend on checkpoints, traffic signs, signals, and “laws” to catch all the dangerous people so you can drive around in a daze. Don’t think for yourself or observe the world and come to difficult conclusions; let the authorities tell you what they want you to know, and how you should feel about the information you are fed. Feel better yet?

Very few people realize this is how they are living. They believe anyone pointing this out is being outrageous or extreme.

But, you can do it! There’s no reason to be scared. You can live in liberty while respecting the liberty of those around you. All the supposed protections and services you believe you are getting by handing over your rights, property, and responsibilities are inferior to those you could provide for yourself. Often, the results are the opposite of what you are told you are getting for the tax money and compliance, anyway. You can do better, or find better providers, on your own.

Observe what goes on and draw your own conclusions. Humans have been doing so with varying degrees of success for a very long time. Be willing to let go of bad ideas and false beliefs– especially the ones with real-world bad consequences– and accept the truth even when it upsets you. You will be fine. At least as fine as you would have been if you continued on your previous path of dependency. There are never any guarantees, either way.

Even if you don’t want the responsibility for your own life, no one will force you to give up your comfort. They can’t force you to be free, nor can you continue to force them to be your slave. Live and let live, in mutual consent.

If you have trouble there are people who will lend a helping hand. Surround yourself with good people who understand liberty against that day. The aggressors and thieves support one another against the outside threat of liberty to their gangs’ activities; how much more helpful do you think those who actually support each other against the bad guys can afford to be?

Don’t be scared. Take the first step now.

Reality vs the delusion

November 26, 2016

I would love to be what cops are imagined by copsuckers to be.

I want to be a person who is helpful to people in danger. I want to be the guy who gets kittens out of trees, and holds doors open for women and old folks (for anyone I can, regardless of any of those things). I want to protect people and serve them by actually being of use.

But I would never want to be anything like the reality of what cops are. I won’t violate people for “laws” or “the common good“.

I won’t pretend I have the right to steal from people to finance my “service” (regardless of whether anyone agreed to pay for it or not). I won’t pretend that property rights don’t apply to me. I won’t pretend my safety negates all other considerations.

I would love for everyone to be this way. Then all but the most delusional badge-fluffers would see their coproach heroes as the unnecessary scum they truly are.

I’ll do all I can to make this the reality. How about you?

When the imaginary causes trouble

November 19, 2016

Politics, government, and “laws” are like a battle between leprechauns and fairies.

The leprechauns and fairies can’t hurt you, but those who believe in them can. And do. Their whole struggle is based on imaginary things and conflicts between those imaginary things. And yet, the believers are willing to see you harmed over their hallucinations.

Government (or more accurately, The State) doesn’t exist outside the human mind. This firing of neurons that makes government seem real to some people inspires the afflicted to steal money and erect buildings, send others to murder and die on the other side of the planet, and make up unnecessary or harmful “laws”.

But this mental glitch has no physical reality. It’s not even something that can be studied like “love”.

Which is probably why I was uncooperative in “government” classes; the teachers are pretending to teach facts about something imaginary. Something completely subjective.

Now, if they’d change tack and inform the students about how people behave when afflicted with this particular mental illness, I could understand such a class. In fact, I could see a value in it– teaching kids how to avoid this superstition and protect themselves from those so infected would be important. But instead they pretend government is something “necessary”, important, and worthy of respect.

So, yes, let’s revolve our lives around the battles of the leprechauns and fairies, and pretend the outcome matters to the real people and the world they live in. Beyond, of course, the behavior of those who actually believe in them. Because the actions of the True Believers matters– always in a very negative way.

I will continue to defend liberty

November 16, 2016

(My Clovis News Journal column for November 16, 2016)

In the wake of the election, about half of those who continue to play the voting game are pretty upset because the candidate they didn’t want to win has been foisted upon them. Or because the one they wanted, lost. This time around it was hard to see the difference in all but a few rabid fans.

Many of you are scared of what America will become during a Trump presidency. You fear a Trump administration the way others feared a Clinton presidency.

Perhaps you fear Trump will be the exception; the one candidate who won’t begin breaking campaign promises the instant he takes the oath of office. I believe your fears are unfounded…read the rest

Government feeds on your fears

November 13, 2016

(My Clovis News Journal column for October 12, 2016)

Liberty is more powerful than fear (my chosen headline)

Government needs you to be afraid.

They depend on your fear of crime, including terrorism (and, apparently clowns) to make you believe you need them. This fear causes you to give away your liberty and dignity for the illusion of security they promise. The solutions they offer are designed to feed your fears by making you focus on nearly-nonexistent threats.

Above all this they want you to fear them and their abilities. If they can also make you feel guilty, even better.

They let it slip that they are reading your emails, texts, social media posts, and listening to your phone calls, because they want fear to cause you to censor yourself. If you censor your words, your thoughts may soon follow suit.

They want you to fear what will happen if you don’t ask permission for one of the thousands of activities they pretend to have authority to license. Once they stop issuing the licenses, you’ll forget your ability remains.

They make examples of some people they catch to demonstrate the cost of disobeying their directives, because they want you to fear arrest. This way you won’t try to do any of the perfectly ethical things they prohibit.

It’s quite a scam they’ve got running, yet the moment you stop being afraid, they lose their power over you. And that terrifies them.

They fear you and me more than we fear them. Consider all the ways government shows it’s afraid.

Notice how many government buildings now hide behind concrete barriers and “controlled access” entrances. Look at the road closures around government facilities.

Hear what a cop actually means when he insists on disarming you “for both our safety”. Here’s a hint: it’s never about your safety when an armed antagonist disarms you.

Stop for a moment and reflect on the level of cowardice behind “no guns” signs, metal detectors, and pat downs. They are terrified of their bosses– you and me– being armed, even though they have armed minions among them whom they exempt from the rules they impose on you.

They also fear you knowing what they are hiding from you, to the point they ponder killing, with drones, your champions who expose them. This isn’t the way it was meant to be.

You deserve greater liberty. Stop letting anyone convince you to be afraid. Be responsible for yourself and help others who can’t help themselves. Your life will improve noticeably once you’ve discarded the fear.
