The Obama “Rally” Continues: Stocks Plunge to New Lows

Oh bummer! the pelf-pluckers must be crying, as the 300-point relief rally was wiped out today in the American stock market. Seems like the folks who voted to loot their neighbors and the unborn workers of the future are getting looted in their stead. There’s an old saying the Elders of Silverwolf’s wolfpack used to teach us when we were wolfcubs: “To steal from a thief is not theft!” Maybe that’s what’s happening now, as those who voted for their freebies by voting for Obama, instead of voting for the working man, Peace, sound money, and the future of the unborn multitudes to come, by voting for Ron Paul, the Peace Candidate, are now reaping their just reward. Apparently there is a price to be paid for having voted to send 17,000 more  young Americans to Afghanistan, where they will be on tenderhooks for their lives for months to come, in a place that is the responsibility of Moderate Muslims and others in the region to pacify. The idea that someone in the Oregon National Guard should be sent halfway around the world, to bail out Pakistan and India, and the other regional powers, is absurd. If it is a world responsibility, then there should be people from all over the world. But since it is a problem of Islamic extremism, why aren’t the supposedly “moderate” (tell that to the Christians who have been massacred and discriminated against there) Indonesia and supposedly moderate (anti-Tamil, anti-Hindu, anti-Buddhist, anti-Semitic) Malaysia, the “mal” of Asia, — why isn’t it their responsibility? Why aren’t the wealthy Arab and Islamic Gulf Emirates funding and fighting the war against the Taliban who are, without a doubt, a despicable bunch of mass murderers, the typical religious Fascists that plagued Europe throughout the centuries, until the post-WWII era (and even then there was Bosnia)? Western Christianity has mellowed to the point that Catholics and Protestant no longer burn each other at the stake, or indulge in their joint pastime of murdering Jews, either through auto de fes, or in communal massacres. Now it is the turn of the world’s Muslims to similarly mellow out. And the only mellowing, levelling process Silverwolf can see that can accomplish this is just plain-old, free-market Capitalism (along with a Jeffersonian Bill of Rights),the separation of church and state,  and self-interest, which paradoxically leads to the greatest prosperity for the greatest number, if left to its own devices. Mankind should trust the anarchy of the Free-Market, because it is the only anarchy that is completely trustworthy. There is much that is interesting and valuable in the Objectivist philosophy of Ayn Rand and her cohorts like Nathaniel Branden: an attempt to impose a strict logic on man’s ethical behaviour, not unlike the logic of Lord Bertrand Russell,  and a no-nonsense attitude toward the religious hypocrisy of so much of Western theology. We may say we are our brother’s keeper, but we don’t act that way, and in the market we are ruthlessly competitive. This is the hypocrisy of all Capitalists who say they don’t care about money, or all Socialists who pick up a government check and say they care about their fellow men.

There is a price to pay for voting in Socialist graft in the form of the Democrats and Obama, and the stock owners of America — and the world — are paying the required price. Oh, bummer!

Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwww! — Silverwolf

    Silver – I would like to negate your claim that Nathaniel Branden is a cohort of Ayn Rand. Rather the opposite – I think he is an ideological sell-out, who liked objectivism not because of the ideal, but because he thought it would grant him his personal wishes. His and Barbara Brandens books/writings about Ayn Rand seems to insinuate that they liked objectivism not for the ideology, but for the same reason that the tabloids like a good scandal. Sort of like that Robert Stadler, I mean Alan Greenspan fellow – who in the 60’s wrote a very good piece on how central banks and money-printing would spell doom – only to go on and do it himself.

    Otherwise a nice read 🙂 My personal viewpoint on religion is this : Believe what you want but keep it to yourself unless specifically asked to share it. Pushing religious viewpoints often turns to abuse of other peoples mind for personal gain. And I think it’s important to recognize that the muslim extremists are only muslims because it serves their goals – just like anyone who felt like killing people could sign up for a crusade to the Holy Land in the dark ages.

    More freedom is the cure for most mental ills!

    hpx83 — I’d tend to agree with you on Branden, after listening once to his wife’s book (on tape) about the “relationship” between Rand and Branden. However, I’ve never delved deeply into Objectivism because I have certain philosophical disagreements with Rand (like her Platonism) which would make me divert from her views early on in the argumentation.

    As for Muslim extremists being extreme because it serves their goals, I’m not sure about that. I think they are so brainwashed that they truly believe in the righteousness of their goals, not because it is somehow materially profitable for them, or more convincing to coerce people through violence. They’re very similar to the Stalinist or the Hitlerian true believers, which were forms of organized religion themselves.

    I’d strongly agree that “pushing religious viewpoints often turns to abuse of other peoples minds for personal gains”. You find that in every organized religion (though I have no statistics for the Bahais, Zoroastrians, those who worship the Gods of Valhalla (very popular in Scandinavia), and the Greek and Roman Gods. And when church and state is mixed, watch out. That is why Jefferson recommended building “a wall of separation between Church and State”. In part he was remembering the sinecures that American taxpayers had to pay to support officially appointed high clergy of the Church of England in the colonies. And there are still many in America who would like to break it down by bringing in prayer in schools, or at publically sponsored events, or use public places maintained by all the taxpayers to publicize their particular religion at the taxpayers expense.

    No one stops anyone from establishing a church in America, if they have the capital to do so, so the cries of religious descrimination or persecution are patently absurd. — Silverwolf
