Libertarianism is Bustin’ Out Al-Egypt

January 29, 2011

It looks like the “happy disease” of Libertarianism is busting out in Egypt, and all over the Arab and North African world, as the youth of these countries finally get sick and tired of the corporatism and governmental corruption than has kept them down and impoverished for decades. The governments and Islamists can continue to blame Jews and Zionism for every single problem in the Arab and Islamic world, but the secular youth of these countries, and many of the educated middle class, know that the problem is corporatism or state socialism mixed and allied with the big private corporations and local wealthy magnates, and the perennial problems of government corruption and the arbitrary power of the “state”.

Over and against these tyrannies stands the old Jeffersonian Liberalism that motivated the writing of the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the beautiful Bill of Rights, one of the great documents of Mankind. These instinctively known values about the Rights of Man are surging up in the youth of North Africa, and they will overwhelm all resistance before them, whether the governmental Leviathan State, or the religious fanaticism and Jew-hatred of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group with long ties to the Nazi ideology since its inception.

Silverwolf finds it both singularly interesting and seminal that this whole revolt was sparked by one young man in Tunisia protesting against a Communist regulation: having to have a business license to sell vegetables. This  is a gross violation of the Capitalist Rights of the Individual to earn a living without the government interfering by either requiring a license to vend, or by looting part of the fruits of one’s labor through an individual income tax (a corporate income tax may or may not be allowable because a corporation is not an individual, but a notional, fictional entity and thus not subject to the Rights of Man).

And so this whole “revolution” began as one man’s capitalist protest against a communist system of regulation in Tunisia, and the extreme levels of unemployment which socialism, corporatism, and minimum-wage laws bring about,  and while Silverwolf does not approve of self-immolation as a form of protest, that extreme act of anti-Communist protest has sparked a revolution so furious and of such magnitude, of which that dead young man could never have dreamed a few weeks ago, that it shows us Libertarians the power and ability of One Individual to change the course of history.

Such is the Power of Freedom and the Thirst for Liberty in all sane men.

Of course, the battle will rage between this new secular, anti-government Libertarianism which unfortunately probably has little more than anger behind it (how many in the streets of Cairo have read their Jefferson, Madison and Murray Rothbard?), and the religious fanatics who would like to see a repeat of Carter’s Folly in Iran of backing a brutal torturing dictator. Already we hear bleatings from Ms. Rodham that Hosni Baby should be given just a little more time. I guess thirty years ain’t enough, is it, Madame Secretary of State, as long as you’re not the one being tortured or unemployed all through the years of your youth? Maybe when you have $70 million, it’s easy to wait? But believe me, Ms. Rodham, those young Capitalists in the Streets ain’t gonna wait.

Rolling the dice like this of course roils a readily rabid world. The excitement and uncertainty of seeing the cornerblock piece of land between Africa and the Middle East wracked by mayhem may seem like a one-off event, but it really fits in with a world pattern, from the American  Tea Party anger and reaction to the Obama extension of the Federal mandate by forcing Americans to pay a corporate insurance toll just to exist in America, and having themselves strip-searched if they must travel, to the growing unrest and malcontent manifest in Europe, and expressing itself in the Greek protests, the Paris and London Student protests,  and the whinings of the unions and the French pensioners who may have to wait to 62 instead of 60 for their lifetime dole.

And perhaps forshadowing this wave of Libertarianism, though not linked by any observers except Silverwolf here, was the unheard of reaction of a group of London protesters to the appearance of a Royal motorcade. The press reported that they chanted “Off with their heads”, and threw paint on the car, although when Silverwolf listened to the tape, it sounded like they what they were actually saying  was “Offer them beads”, and the paint on the car may have been an attempt to spruce up the appearance of the Royal conveyance, since the financial crisis has brought budgetary embarrassments to even the finest of British families. Knowing the British people’s love for their monarchy, it’s hard to imagine any other possible explanations.

However, he is willing to accept the official portrayal of the event, and, if it is true, it is a telling description of the disgust which youth, whether in Tunisia, London, Paris or Cairo, hold for the Establishment.

Yes, indeed. Libertarianism is bustin’ out all over the Arab world, and it ain’t even June.

America’s Day of Infamy: The Administration Welcomes a Dictator

January 19, 2011

American Libertarians can only hang their heads in shame, as they see the highest representatives of a government they didn’t vote for greet the head of the world’s largest dictatorship. It is a black spot indeed on the national honor, and we should not forget that it is “Liberal Democrats”, people who supposedly hold the rights of the little guy and the working man as sacrosanct, and who consistently market themselves as moral, principled people, who are the exact ones who are greeting the Dictator, and thus legitimizing and enabling the continuation of one of the world’s most despicable dictatorships. Murder, torture, religious prosecution, horrible exploitation of both workers and animals, kangaroo capital punishment courts, sale of body parts for profit: the list of crimes committed by the Red Chinese government gangsters is legion. How many innocent people and young soldiers did they kill in their wars against Vietnam and India?; how many Tibetan priests did they murder and torture? And have they ever been forced to return the booty they have looted in Tibet?

None of these issues seemed to deter the immoral triumvirate of Obama, Biden, and Clinton, from welcoming the head of this gangster regime to Washington, and forcing moral Americans to have to waste their taxpayer dollars in the purchase of Chinese flags, red carpet treatment, and elaborate dinners for the head of the torture gang.

Yet one does not see thousands of Liberal Democrats in the streets of our major cities, protesting against this crime against the spirit of the U.S. Constitution, and everything that Jeffersonian Republicanism stands for: due process of law, and the inalienable Rights of the Individual to be free of state tyranny, the exact antithesis of that State which Obama and Biden have legitimized on this Black Day for America.

During the mid-30s, Hitler’s greatest fear was that a boycott or embargo could have been passed by Congress which would have cut off American investment and contact with Nazi Germany. No boycott was instigated; America went to the Munich Olympics in 1936, thus legitimizing a torturing regime that engaged in religious persecution just as Red China does. And the rest is history.

Silverwolf would put it to you that America should treat Red China just as it should have treated Nazi Germany during the 30s, by a complete boycott and cutting off of all government recognition, a repudiation of all U.S. Government Bonds held by the Red Chinese regime, and withdrawal of immoral Most Favored Nation trading status granted to China, instigated under the Clinton Administration.

American and Jeffersonian Political Ideals are not just some toilet paper to be used to wipe up the scat of Fascism. In welcoming the Miscreant Criminal Hu, the Obama Administration has reduced those Ideals to such a state.

And Jefferson is cursing in his grave.

The Human Beings’ Finest Hour: Britain Bans Fox Hunting

January 1, 2011

 Silverwolf has been commissioned by the Wolfmen’s Institute, due to his remarkable longevity (362 years and going strong) and the brilliance of his literary style, to write a historical review of what he would consider as the greatest achievement of the late, great, Human Race, extinct exactly 100 years now, in this year of 2288.

After pondering long and hard, and even on a midnight dreary, he finally came up with Man’s greatest accomplishment in the waning centuries of this peculiar and singular species, though it was hard to choose between this and the campaigns of 2008 and 2012 of Congressman Ron Paul, a last gasp desperate attempt by Jeffersonian lovers of Republican Civil Rights, administered by a system of democratic election, to wrest power from the Collectivist and Statist forces that had pretty much pushed around the world for the previous 100 years and before. Sometimes those forces were individuals; sometimes they were blocks, based on industry, profits, or more rarely ideology. Paul’s candidacy, and the feeble Libertarian flame that flickered and was quickly doused by the Democrat-Republican mainstream bi-partisan necrosis, marked the last expression of political liberty in the history of the human race. From Jefferson to the French Revolution and back to Pelosi-McConnellism all in 200 short years, after tens of thousands of years of human tyranny and bullyboys ruling the roost. Too bad.

Besides the Paul campaign, the only remarkable achievement of man since Antonioni shot “The Red Desert” in the early 60s, was the banning of fox hunting in Great Britain, which took place on February 18, 2005, and it is this event, rather than the Paul campaign or the Antonioni masterpiece, that marks the Zenith of Human Kind, in Silverwolf’s opinion; from thence it was all downhill for the “hairless ape”.

Not that the ban was easy to get through. It was passed by the House of Commons, but modified and in effect nullified by the House of Lords. This happened twice in late 2004, and the arm-wrestling continued in the courts until the High Court ruled that the Parliamentary act was not unconstitutional, paving the way for implimentation.

‘ Course, the sadists were given exemptions: they could still hunt foxes with birds of prey, or use two dogs to flush them out, after which they could be shot.

The digusting politician Blair admitted in an interview with Bloomberg News, that he had tried to sabotage the very bill which he and his party were putting forth in Parliament. What an honest politician!

But the sabotage failed, and the ban still had widespread support in Britain, even as late as 2011, showing that many Human Beings there were still opposed to Blood Sport, even though they routinely ate meat. It shows that the basic sentiment of people in the “social democracies” was fairly decent, though not enough to make them give up their “bangers and mash” or fish and chips. Nor was it uniform, as nearly 30% continued to favor terrorizing a little fox, and then having it pulled apart live by wild dogs, a fate which Silverwolf doubts any of those participating in the sadistic exercise would wish visited on themselves or their children. Silverwolf has met little foxes. They’re nice, as long as they don’t eat the cats.

Of course the three unharnessables finally brought down the Homo Sapiens, whom we Silverwolves call Saps for short: the nuclear proliferation of materials, the climatic wobblies, and the nannobot unions.

Fortunately the nukes didn’t go off in time, before Mankind was wiped out. That would have taken all us Silverwolves with them, and we’d have had to go back to the cockroach brain to start the evolutionary process again, instead of the highly sophisticated cerebellum of the Silverwolf. So that saved G-d a lot of misery and evolutionary work. Whew!

With the climate they weren’t so fortunate. Whether the debate was that the earth was heating up or cooling down, the fact was that the summers were getting hotter and hotter, and the winters were getting colder and colder. And more and more humans were getting wiped out due to the weather, and the increased demands on the retiree’s support system as the population aged. The politicians vowed they’d never ration care, as the politicians rationed care. And the elderly populations of Japan, Australia, America, Canada, Russia and the “Republics”, and Europe plunged, year after year.

Of course this led to the final catastrophe, the Great Flu Epidemic of 2188, where the flu was so widespread that the government negotiated with the Nannobot’s Union for a higher mils per hour minimum wage, in exchange for working overtime. Unfortunately, the little workaholic buggers, when introduced into the human bloodstream, tended to replicate themselves so thoroughly that the human soon became nothing but a pile of nannobot goo, resembling a large mound of gray, rotting mushrooms.

And that’s how this both noble and ignoble race or species met its undigified end; a sad conclusion to an experiment that G-d thought would supply a drab earth (intellectually speaking) with a little salty cerebral sophistication. Well, at least He doesn’t have to go back to the cockroach, thanks to our wolfen survival.

And no Governor of Alaska will be gunning us Silverwolves down from helicopters ever again.
