You support… that?

March 13, 2018

There are businesses around which display support for Blue Line Gang molesters on their electronic signs. I’m glad to know what they support so I can spend my money elsewhere. 
There are houses which fly the Blue Line Gang molester flag; the flag that declares that the lives of molesters are more important than yours or mine. I’m glad to know where these people live so I can avoid them and leave them to their heroes in an emergency.
There are cars driving around with stickers on them advertising their support for the molester gang. I encourage them to let themselves be known everywhere they go.
I’ll always encourage the enemies of all that is decent to display who they are and what they support. It’s helpful to know where anti-liberty bigots are.

Any tyranny is too much tyranny

March 7, 2018

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for March 7, 2018)

How much is enough?

When it turns out stronger anti-drug “laws” don’t prevent addiction or tragedies, how much are you willing to expand prohibition? How far are you willing to have armed government employees go– on your behalf– to impose your opinions?

Would you approve of permanent checkpoints on all roads? Do you favor banning the manufacture of any and all chemicals which could possibly be combined to make substances you are willing to kill people over?..read the rest

If archation is OK

February 5, 2018

Maybe archation isn’t a problem. Maybe you do have the right to initiate force and take, damage, or otherwise violate the property of others.

Where does that lead, if that’s the case?

Theft, murder, rape, kidnapping, vandalism, trespassing… it’s all fine. If you have the right to do it, then no one has the right to stop you.

Or, maybe some would argue that only a government— a group of people claiming “authority“– has the right to do those things, and only as necessary to do the “job”.

Where would that lead?

To the exact same place, but with people pretending it’s all fine. Individuals shouldn’t do those things, but if an individual who belongs to group that claims “authority” does them, well that’s just peachy.

That’s part of why statism just doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.

But, if I’m wrong… well, I’ll leave that for tomorrow. See you then.

"Police corruption" is meaningless

September 29, 2017

Are police corrupt?
Is the mafia corrupt?
Would the old Chicago mob have been OK if Al Capone* had just cracked down on the corruption in his gang? Or, was the problem more systemic than that? Was the mob functioning exactly as it was intended to?

If your purpose, or at least the real-world manifestation of your “purpose”, is evil, how can the word “corrupt” even have any meaning to your situation?

What would a non-corrupt street gang look like? If you eliminate the evil deeds, nothing is left. It is no longer a gang, but is just a non-archating social club.

For police to not be “corrupt” they would have to be funded voluntarily (no “tax” funding at all).
They would have to stop enforcing almost all “laws” and only spend their “on-the-job” time protecting life, liberty, and property.
They would stop enforcing any “law” that forbids you from doing something they are allowed to do (carrying a gun into a post office or school, for example). Yes, this is related to the previous point, but important enough to separate out.
They would have to come down hard on any cop who violated life, liberty, or property, and not form a “blue wall of silence” around him.
They would be accountable for any violations, and would accept the restitution they owe– personally and individually, not paid to the victims by the “taxpayers”.
They wouldn’t “patrol”, but would only come when invited.

In other words, they wouldn’t be cops.

*Yeah, I realize his mob was less corrupt than today’s police, but ignore that for now.

Jealous of cops?

August 31, 2017

Some of my detractors are right: I’m jealous of cops. Yes, I am. I admit it.

I’m jealous of the wide-spread, unearned respect they get.
I’m jealous they get to ignore all anti-gun “laws“, without being murdered (by cops) for doing so.
I’m jealous they make as much money as they do, and wish I could, too. Although I’d rather get money honestly.
I’m jealous because I can lose friends over words I have written, while cops don’t seem to lose friends when they actually murder and rape. In fact, they seem to gain even more supporters in the face of accusations.

However, if you believe my dislike of cops is because of this jealousy, you would be wrong.

There are people I am jealous of, but whom I still like.
There are also people I don’t like, but whom I am not jealous of in any way.
So, being jealous of someone and liking or not liking them are completely unrelated.

I have no desire to use violence against people who aren’t archating, but there is still something thrilling about the thought that you could murder just about anyone and get away with it just because of your “job”.

I wish that didn’t seem exciting, but I do have personality flaws.

Gang members attract groupies

August 25, 2017

One day recently, at an event at the park, I was watching people gathering around a cop. Several seemed to be jostling for his attention. I couldn’t help but wonder what the attraction is.

Then I remembered someone I know who idolizes the Mafia, and it clicked: Gang members attract groupies. Suddenly I started thinking of other examples of the same phenomenon.

Many people are attracted to those they see as “dangerous”. Some of these groupies are “harmless” people (perhaps cowards) who hunger for an association with someone who has more of an edge. Someone who can help them feel less harmless by association.

Others are in denial that they idolize bad guys, and they want plausible deniability, so they gather around those who are dangerous, but are seen as somehow “legitimate”, too. Someone who can kill with impunity, but only “those who deserve it”. Anyone cops murder is generally considered, by the cop groupies at least, to have deserved it somehow. Cops are their natural aphrodisiac.

Police lead to police states

August 21, 2017

You can’t have a police state without police. And, if you allow government to have police, you’re probably going to find yourself in a police state sooner or later.

Unless you can find a real way to directly, and tightly, control (and “police”) the police. (No one has ever managed to find that unicorn yet.)

Now, I suppose if you’re a coward and you want to live in a police state, you’re fine with that.

But if you don’t want to live in a police state, but you still want cops around, for some incomprehensible reason, you are going to be disappointed. Eventually, if not sooner.

It’s a path you are either choosing, or your family, friends, and neighbors are choosing for you. At least speak up in opposition.

About those "bad apples"

August 15, 2017

Let’s pretend that the problem with cops really is “just a few bad apples” like cop supporters continually insist.

What does an apple seller do with any bad apples he discovers in a barrel of apples?
Does the apple salesman make excuses for the bad apple and leave it in the barrel?
Does he remove it for a couple of weeks, then sneak it back in when no one is looking?
If he does toss it out, do other apple sellers enthusiastically come get it and put it in their barrel?
Do the other apples crowd around to protect the bad apple from being disposed of?
What happens if you leave bad apples in the barrel with the good apples?
Will the bad apples be made good again by exposure to the good apples, or will the bad apples ruin the whole barrel?

What are police departments doing with all the bad apples that keep turning up?
Are police departments disposing of the bad apples that expose themselves?

But, you might point out: people aren’t fruit.
You’re right. People aren’t rotten fruit to be thrown in the compost heap. So why do cop supporters keep insisting on making that comparison?

Making people mad

July 25, 2017

People are tired of me harping on cops. I know it. They’ve told me so. It makes them mad. It hurts their feelings. It makes them… uncomfortable. They don’t want to hear it.

I understand why. But I’m not sure I want to stop. It’s just too important for liberty to make sure to drive the point home, and to never let up. To never give an inch.

Cops are where the boot heel of tyranny meets the human face. Without their active aggression, there would be no such thing as political power. The opinions of the bullies of the State would be nothing but a bit of hot air, quickly lost to the gentlest breeze.

Next to cops, presidents are nothing. “Laws” are nothing. Corrupt prosecutors (but I repeat myself) are nothing. Power-crazed judges are nothing. Bureaucrats are nothing. The State is nothing. Cops are the one thing that makes government a problem for Rightful Liberty and those who exercise it. Nothing else even comes close– no matter how evil and reprehensible other things may be.

Yes, I understand it is tiresome to hear “Cops are scum” and “Cops are losers” again and again. But it is more important than anything else you can hear, with regards to liberty. It is absolutely crucial to understand why you can’t support cops without polluting yourself; without being a part of the problem. It’s just the way it is, and telling it the way it is makes people mad. And, yet I keep on.

I try to be nice about it. I try to not get profane and angry like so many others I see. Quite honestly, I am not angry; I am persistent in speaking this irritating truth. Truth is mistaken for anger when that truth is painful.

In my day-to-day life I don’t worry about cops a tenth as much as some of the people I know who don’t have a principled stance against policing– simply because they fear being the target of police attention. Or because they worry that a cop will see them doing something “illegal” while driving. That’s something I really don’t worry about. It is what it is, and I’m not going to live my life worrying about those parasites.

As with any gang, I avoid contact as much as possible. I recognize what they are, and I don’t sugar-coat it. And I go on with my life, knowing they are utterly irrelevant and worthless in the grand scheme of things.

But, I know it is something the population needs to keep being reminded of, because the cult is so ubiquitous and so generally popular. And because it is important.

The difference between cops and other bad guys

May 27, 2017

The only real difference between cops and other bad guys lies in the beliefs– and thus the behavior– of their victims.

Both sets of bad guys have their own “code” with which they justify violating those around them.
Both use violence to impose their will on others.
Both demand unearned “respect”.
Both archate as a matter of course.

I see no real difference between them. A difference which makes no difference isn’t a difference.

Cops, just like all bad guys, are scum.

But cops have the distinct advantage of their victims believing that cops are on their side, and accepting just about any awful thing cops do to them and their loved ones. Copsuckers must be masochists and self-loathing people who feel they deserve abuse at the hands of cops, bolstered by their belief in “the law”. So they don’t fight back or defend the innocent from these bullies, but usually support and defend the bad guys.

The underlying belief is delusional.

But more and more people are losing those beliefs. They are crumbling in the face of the behavior of the cops.

As soon as enough people see cops for what they really are, it will be a very bad day to belong to that gang. A very bad day. That day is long overdue.
