"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.

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.

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?

Surviving in a statist world, sanity intact

November 29, 2016

I often see two different views on how to live “libertarian” in this statist world:

“Don’t try to change the world to be more libertarian. You can’t change anyone other than yourself, anyway.”

Or…

“For the sake of your own liberty– and that of your children and grandchildren– you should do what you can to spread the message of Rightful Liberty any chance you get.”

Those may sound like opposing views, but I don’t think they really are.

I think most of us go back and forth from one to the other, withdrawing into their own little world when the exhaustion gets too much, and then striking out again when they’ve rested and re-energized.

I know some days I don’t have the energy to do anything but live my own life the best I can. But other days, I can also talk to those who are curious about how their own lives would be improved by dropping the lust to control everyone else.

I’m not going to criticize either approach- both have their time and place, and both are useful.

The evil, lazy way to get what you want

November 28, 2016

Archation works. It often gets you what you want– at least in the short term.

It gives you power, dominance, or unearned property. I would be an idiot to not see that it works.

You still have no right to commit it. Not if you are freelance and not if you are working for a gang (government).

Archation includes theft, trespassing, rape, murder, fraud, trying to control other people’s private property, prohibition… basically anything that a common thug or government employee would do.

Because it works, you aren’t going to stop evil, lazy people from doing it. The best you can do is to refuse to lower yourself to their level, and to defend yourself from them.

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?

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.


A big “thank you!” to supporters of this blog. I probably couldn’t keep doing this without you.
My subscriptions areĀ down about $65 from a year ago. That may not sound like much, but when you live on the edge as I do, it’s a lot. I desperately need to replace (or surpass) those subscriptions.
