Anarchy already works

December 11, 2016

Do you only refrain from attacking people and stealing their stuff as long as someone is pointing a gun at you to stop you?

No?

Then anarchy already works.

"Helping"

December 10, 2016

If you helped government (the State), you probably didn’t do the right thing. No matter what you did.

Yeah, it’s like this… only dumber:

Poor, fumbling statists

December 9, 2016

Mostly, I pity statists.

The same way I pity people I’m watching who can’t manage to do something I could easily do, after they have rejected my offer to help.

I watch them fumble and stumble, and get frustrated and angry, but still they just keep doing it wrong.

Stubbornness drives them onward, into ever more painful error. And I know I could prevent it. But I won’t force myself on them.

I hurt for them, but they chose this path even after knowing there’s an alternative.

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.

How do you see reality?

December 4, 2016

Dilbert‘s Scott Adams says our brains are not good at seeing reality, but only at seeing a “movie” in our minds that is good enough to keep us alive long enough to reproduce. I’ll assume that’s true.

It’s why different people see the same thing in such different ways.

Well, that’s great but the “movie” playing in the heads of statists is incompatible with the movie playing inside healthy minds. Yes, it keeps them alive long enough to reproduce, so it “works”.

I would be perfectly fine leaving statists alone to play their statism game, but they can’t bother to return the favor. They are uncivilized brutes who demand everyone play the game their way or die. That just won’t work.

I don’t care what “movie” they see as long as they don’t put it into action by archating, and when they do initiate force and violate property rights, it doesn’t matter that the reason they do is because of the way they see reality. Anyone still has an absolute right to defend their life, liberty, and property from anyone seeking to violate it, for any reason.

No one believes they do wrong

December 3, 2016

Everyone always believes they are doing the right thing.

Even as they murder, kidnap, govern, rape, steal, and trespass- as they archate.

If they truly believed they were doing wrong, they would stop. You aren’t going to convince them that what they want to do is wrong– except in exceptional cases. They have excuses and justifications for what they want to do handy and rehearsed.

So… what to do about it? (Short of killing them all, I mean.)

The best strategy I’ve found is to live by the Zero Aggression Principle. You may have other ideas.

(I’m adding random pictures to the posts for a while to see if it helps visibility. Feel free to ignore them.)

All governments are vermin

December 2, 2016

The bigger a government is, the more powerful it will be.

However, the closer to you the government is, the greater will be its impact on your day-to-day life.

That’s why, in practice, the town council is probably equally harmful as a one-world government.

Notice, I’m not saying either is preferable. Both are vile and evil.

This is why nationalism is as sick as globalism, which is as sick as the desire to such up to the bullies in your state capitol, county courthouse, or city hall. All are vermin.

Blind faith in States

December 1, 2016

People sure have a lot of blind faith in the States of the planet.

They seem to believe the States are the only things keeping humans from killing each other. They seem to believe people are one whim away from mass murder- and only the State keeps us from carrying it out.

What about the State does this? Its ability to punish? Its ability to watch everyone all the time? Or some other even more mystical property?

How do these people act when no employee of the State is present? Do they either cower in fear, or start running amok? Or, is it all an act on their part? A comfortable lie?
