The Paranoia of Absolute Power: From King John to Modern America

June 26, 2013

It seems that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were, unfortunately, dead right. ‘Twould be much better if absolute power made the Chief into a benevolent angel, using his power for moral ends, to better the lives of the people in one way or another, if only to get out of their way.

In the future perfect Capitalist society, where the industrious will happily work at their callings, and be materially rewarded for it, and those who wanted little but the freedom to wander, or write poetry, could go to voluntary welfare societies set up by Capitalists who believed in Socialism, — in that society there will be no coercion. One Capitalist may be greedy, but another Capitalist may be a Socialist who thinks that  everyone is entitled to the basics of food (vegan of course), clothing, and shelter. The Socialist-believing Capitalist could donate, or set up himself,  a charity, and set the rules according to his Moral Views. Such a man might agree with Erich Fromm”s argument for Socialism, once made in an interview with Los Angeles television reporter Jerry Dunphy,: “You don’t expect your dog to work. But you feed him. I think a man should be treated as well as a dog.”

Such an argument carries much weight with Silverwolf. But it presupposes and forgets two facts: Firstly, while I may feel compassionate enough to give a meal to a hungry man, the next fellow on the block may not feel the same way, and I don’t have the right to impose my moral beliefs on my neighbor. As a Libertarian, I am only concerned with his actions; and that those actions do not constitute a violation of the Libertarian non-aggression axiom: No man or group of men may aggress against the Person or Property of another man. Such an aggression is regarded by the Libertarian as “invasion”, and it is. Such an invasion is a Crime against the Property Rights of that Man, and since we own our bodies, an attack on our persons is also technically a violation of Property Rights.

Secondly, the Socialist argument above flounders in the face of the fact that by confiscating, or voting to confiscate from my neighbor, money or “taxes” to fund my own personal Socialistic moral views, I am committing an act of Violence against my neighbor, which in itself, is a form of treating a Man like a dog, the very argument used above to justify Socialism.

So, what are we to do in the face of this inconsistency between Capitalism and Socialism?

To Silverwolf the answer lies in a radically free-Capitalist free-market society, where 95% of all people had voluntarily, through no coercion, found something they loved or liked to do, and so there would be a vast Middle Class. Some people, who for their own personal reasons, wanted to accumulate truly vast amounts of Capital and Wealth, could go ahead and do so, but most people would be satisfied with a type of upper class-Middle Class life, choosing leisure and amusement over passion-driven, fanatical accumulation. Emelda Marcoses could accumulate 700 pairs of shoes if they liked, but most sane people would settle for three to seven. More than that would become encumberences to all but the collector.

In this Free-Market  prosperous Free Society, with Thomas Jefferson’s Bill of Rights rigorously enforced, a certain percentage of people would be inclined to give to charity, which would, in turn, support those who were completely physically disabled, like someone in an iron lung, or those who wanted to live completely outwardly indolent lives, but focus all their energy on the Inner Life. These would be called Philosophers and Poets, but the Philosophers and Poets would know that if the people ever became hardened enough, they might stop giving to charity, and then the Philosophers and Poets would have to deal with a precarious situation.

All these arguments are pretty academic now that we live in a world where, given the capacities of our factories, everyone could easily be given a daily ration of grains and beans, a few Mao Suits to wear during the year, and a tent that could easily be Solar Heated. Mist collectors, as we recently saw reported, can now collect and condense enough water out of the air that people can survive on it in very dry climates or areas without a well. (Just the thing you need next time you break both your ankles hiking in Chemehuevi Valley, and your car battery goes dead when you try to start it.) With such condensers,  many desert areas could become livable again. Composting toilets, and the sanitary advantages of the vegan diet, or even charity built septic systems, could serve individuals or tribes when it came to the unthinkables of these few Philosophical Indigents and Poets. (But who would read them, or join in their philosophical explorations? The rest of Mankind would be busily working away at their Callings, havin’ a great ol’ time.) Some Philosophers and Poets would even be so brilliant and engrossing that their productions of Thought and Word would sell on the open- and Free-market, and they’d grow wealthy. Look at the Stones. Jagger is a Damn Good Poet.

But say we didn’t live in such a world. Say that five or ten men owned all the land in America, that they could charge a grand-a-night rent for every man, woman, and child, and since they owned all the agricultural land, they could charge a $100/lb for cornmeal and oats, those delicacies of a vegan society. Obviously people would starve to death, and there would soon be five or ten men left, and their families, and maybe some favored buddies and their concubines.

 Such circumstances of material inequality, Professor Rothbard maintained, only exist where the Crime of Land Theft has taken place in the past, as in Central and South America, and, on a local scale, in parts of the Old American West. In other words, such inequality indicates a massive violation of the Libertarian non-aggression principle, and would have to be rectified.

But in a truly Free-Market Jeffersonian Bill of Rights Society, with a vast Middle Class, no such draconian inequality would be possible. Monopolies and Trusts, though they may exist in certain markets and local economies, soon break down, as happened over and over again to the various “Trusts” in America, because of the phenomenon of the “Price Buster”, the guy in the Monopoly or Trust who starts giving secret kickbacks to favored customers in order to take advantage of the absurd price rise the Trust has created. This happened in Sugar, Kerosene, Train Freight Charges — every kind of Trust. They always went Bust. That is, until they learned to have Government help them restrict competition, from FCC licenses to Teaching Credentials to Barbers Licenses to the Screen Actors Guild, to that crucifier of Youths, the Minimum Wage Law.

So the arguments Socialists always pull out, about how a free-Market would lead back to the poverty of the 19th century and the robber barons, is absurd, and obviously a lie to justify their religion. The Industrial Revolution, as harsh and brutal as it was, had led by the 1920s to the possibility of a comfortable, Middle Class society, although still in the 1920s, 90% of Americans were poor farmers. But the momentum of prosperity was clearly there, and now in 2013 we have an absolutely incredible technological society, so complex that no individual can hope to understand it all, unlike the American Indian and the Kalahari Bushman who could completely understand their environment. They knew Everthing they needed to survive, and were Masters at it. We know nothing, except perhaps our little niche.

For example, in the future, modern  factories could easily manufacture super suits of clothes that were especially perfect for each of the four seasons. Each citizen could buy, or would be given by the Socialist charities, one or four of these suits, and that is all the clothing they would need. The suits would last a few years or decades. But the suits would probably be boring and functional, like Mao suits, as sterile and heartless as the modern bureaucratic services one sees in Great Britain, Australia, and America Northern. Only those who worked would have the capital to obtain their clothing on the free market, where they could satisfy their personal predelictions, like the late Brian Jones, or the connoisseurs of Saville Row.

One thing the anti-Capitalists don’t like to admit is that as people as a whole get wealthier, and the Middle Class grows, the number of goods and services that people want increases, providing more work or jobs, in increasingly more specialized areas, thus creating an even more prosperous society. There would be no end to this in a truly Free-Market society. In a poor society, a hungry arthritic pensioner is not going to hire someone to walk their beloved dog; in an upper-Middle Class society it is possible, and so someone who is unemployed but loves both to walk and to be with dogs, may and probably will be able to earn a wage. In a wealthy Rich society, you might even have those who specialized in walking certain breeds, or had a magical rapport with such breeds, and their wealthy arthritic owners might pay through the nose to hire such people to walk their dogs. Such walkers might become wealthy and noted celebrities, (and then there would be the profits from their book sales when they retire: “Vicious Great Danes I Have Known and Loved”).

But all this wealth, Freedom, and non-coercion is only possible if that Free Society has the Jeffersonian Bill of Rights, and it is here that we see in the Modern World the greatest threat to that great Capitalist Libertarian Society.

Sadly, very sadly for America, the fact that the two most powerful other monolithic Powers in the Modern World. who are completely anti-Libertarian in their attitudes and rule (Russia and the Old Soviet Republics, and Fascist China) and ruled by Paranoid, self-delusional Powermongers, are now in the process of being joined by the one place in the world where there still seemed to be some remaining spark of Libertarian creativity and Freedom left: The United States of America.

That was solely due to the Bill of Rights, and the fact that a large part of her economy was still in the hands of private Capitalists (the Small Businessman and the Investor). But these two Siamese twins, the Bill of Rights and Free-Market Capitalism, were dependent on one clear inalienable Right: the Right of Privacy.

It seems that when the Paranoia of Absolute Power strikes, it strikes first at this sacred, Natural Right, the Right of Privacy, the Right to be left alone if one is not violating the Libertarian Non-Aggression Axiom. This is what that beautiful thinker, Jefferson, as well as Madison and many of the others, could see so clearly, and what the modern politicians are trying to overthrow: that Beautiful Fourth Amendment.

They’ve succeeded in that overthrow of Privacy in the Totalitarian Societies, like Fascist China, and all the dozens of other unspeakable dictatorships that curse this globe, be it North Korea or Zimbabwe.

And they’ve succeeded in the castrated Socialist societies like Australia, where the Australian Board of Statistics can throw you in jail and fine you $170/day if you do not answer questions about your sex life, as we recently saw on a report. And England and the EU, where the individual is tracked and kept track of, from Birth to Death. Never his own Man, but always a cog in the Socialist Machine.

And now, thanks to the Paranoiac in the White House, and the Politicians of both Parties, this violation of the Right of Privacy is coming to America.

Sir Richard Evans, in his brilliant series of lectures on Victorian England, pointed out that it was entirely possible for a man to go through life in Victorian England without ever once having had contact or engagement with Government or the State.

Not so in Modern America, with her dog-sniffing random searches of law-abiding motorists, or Socialist Australia, or Fascist China.

When the Lords put the squeeze on King John, he was forced to cede to them with Magna Carta, and Libertarian Freedom had its first Outbreak.

But when we come to the psycopathic Criminals and Mass Murderers, Hitler and Stalin, we can see what those who achieve absolute power, by absolutely destroying Privacy, are capable of doing. And the more power they have, the more paranoid and bloodthirsty they become. It’s almost like a Law of Nature, a Law that Thomas Jefferson well understood. Go read defecting former-KGB agent Oleg Gordievsky’s great “KGB: the Inside Story”, and you will see what Absolute Power does to the men at the top, as we are now seeing in America, as it becomes more and more a bureaucratic police state, that can harass anyone who criticizes it.

The road from The Lords of England’s victory over King John with Magna Carta, to the Libertarian Jefferson’s victory over King George III with the Bill of Rights, was a long one.

The degeneration from Hitler and Stalin until today is a short one, made all the more sinister by the perversions of modern science and technology. And the Politicians are exploiting that technology to overthrow the Bill of Rights, a Bill that doesn’t talk of “balance” when it comes to Natural Rights, but “Inalienable Rights”, Rights that can never be taken away from any Human Being without violence being perpetrated.

Is Mankind to go forward into a bright upland of Prosperity, non-coercion, and Privacy, or is he to be the plaything of Socialists and Fascists like the head of Fascist China, or the sexually-prying questions of a perverted Hag like Australia’s PM, Julia Gillard?

Strangely enough, Silverwolf believes that Libertarian Man will eventually Prevail over the Fascism and Socialism of the modern Politicians at the top.

Obama and The Bipartisan Fascists Attack Privacy and Capitalism

June 13, 2013

Once again, thanks to the voters who voted for Obama, Fascism is on the rise, reaching peaks it had not achieved since the days of Hitler and Mussolini. Its animosity towards Individuality and Privacy are well noted, and now the very people who put the Fascist Obama into the White House are cringing with fear as they realise that every intimate revelation, every minor misdemeanor, and every detail of their private lives, and business and financial transactions, have undoubtedly been stored and perhaps seen by one of the thousands of private contractor NSA financial snoopers. Soon all their medical history and conditions will also be up for blackmail, thanks to Obamacare. Capitalism and the free-market have been dealt a blow that they will probably never recover from. For Obama voters, and the rest of us, it’s too late.

Undoubtedly, many people will be blackmailed by NSA snoopers who now know intimate secrets about them. Their financial deals and trades, their sitting orders to buy or sell, can now be frontrun by NSA snoopers who can give this information to their friends, family, and business associates. The absolute necessity of Privacy to the conduct of the Free-Market has been forever destroyed by a coalition of Liberal Democrats like political commentator John Rothmann, who strongly supported Obama’s reelection, and Fascist Republicans like Lindsey “Cracker” Graham, who doesn’t mind that your Privacy has be destroyed.

However, the real criminals in this case are the people who voted for Obama over anti-Fascist choices like Congressman Ron Paul and Governor Gary Johnson. The Obama Voters have destroyed the Fourth Amendment, the inalienable Right to Privacy that Jefferson so well understood, and Free-Market Capitalism, all by sticking that stylus through the name of Barack Obama in the voting booth. The crimes that they have committed in their private lives and have put online in emails and social media are now stored on vast databanks, waiting to be used against them if they ever threaten the Fascist’s powerstructure. Thanks to their stupidity, faith in government, and lack of political science knowledge, the Obama voters have elevated the Fascist State to a new level of power.

The only benefit of all this is that now a vast swathe of the public has become deeply cynical about Collectivist Politics. They remember that Classical Liberals like Oregon’s Peter DeFazio, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, who now are making such a big stink about their own privacy being invaded, were the very ones who only a few months ago were urging the people to reelect the Fascist Obama. And they continue to remain in the Fascistic Democratic Party, while the Republican Fascists actually are endorsing this heinous overthrow of the Bill of Rights under the Fascist Obama, showing that they haven’t changed much since the days of the Fascist Bush (the second one), save for the exception of Senator Rand Paul.

With a new Gallop Poll showing only 10% of the public think Congress is doing a good job, the only good news coming out of this is that there is a growing Libertarian revulsion amongst the public against the intrusions of the Fascist State against the Individual and his most intimate secrets. They now feel instinctively that Jefferson was right in saying that government is a necessary evil, but at heart an evil institution, and that its evil can only be kept in check when tied down by the Bill of Rights. But the Democratic Party politicians and voters have put an end to the Bill of Rights, now a part of past History.

The damage done to Privacy and Capitalism is irreparable. Thanks to the Obama Voters and the Bipartisan Fascist Politicians, Human Freedom has been destroyed in America.

America: Democracy or Republic?

July 26, 2012

One of the most irritating propaganda ploys one constantly  hears on the Liberal and government media is that America is a “Democracy”. This inaccurate fallacy must be exposed.

America is not a “Democracy” because in a Democracy everyone votes on every piece of legislation, and there is not necessarily a Bill of Rights so that no Individual is truly safe against the aggressions of government. True “Democracy” is really mob-rule and is completely based on pragmatism, not morality.

Now some might say that we have a “Representative Democracy”, but a “Representative Democracy” is better known by its simpler name, a “Republic”. When people vote to choose a representative who then votes in a legislative assembly, then you have a “Republic”, but such a Republic also may not necessarily have a Bill of Rights. Fortunately, America’s Republic does.

So we are not a Democracy, like so many seem to easily say, but more accurately a Republic that uses the Democratic election process to choose its legislative representatives; a Republic, furthermore, that fortunately also has a Bill of Rights that is supposed to protect every Individual against totalitarian actions of the government and the majority. Jefferson and Madison knew how every government will tend to want to crush the Individual at some point, either for economic benefit, or because the Individual is using a Bill of Rights to stand in the way of some Unconstitutional or immoral action by the government (such as illegal search and seizure). And so Wisechief Jefferson, after years of study of the political science of his day and preceding centuries, much of it codified by Puffendorf, gave us that beautiful, wonderful American Bill of Rights, that was to eternally be a giant finger in the face of every Fascist fearmonger that was ever to come after.

Now, in a true Democracy with no Bill of Rights, that was based on the Pragmatic Principle of Jeremy Bentham which said that that action was correct which gave the greatest happiness to the greatest number of people — in such a Democracy any action would be possible. There would be no principles of morality involved, but only what would make the lives of the majority of people more commodious.

If such a Benthamite doctrine ruled over America, it would be quite possible, and quite within the rules of the law, for the 99% of the population who were not ethnically Armenian to decide that it would be in the interests of the vast majority of the population for all of the 1% who were Armenians to be killed and their property confiscated and re-distributed amongst the non-Armentian populace. 99% of the population would find there living standards increased, public services and infrastructure would now have 1% less to deal with, so the roads would be slightly less congested and social services costs would drop somewhat, and only a “mere 1%” would suffer a diminution in their “quality of life”.

The Jeffersonian Republic differs violently from this immoral Benthamite Democracy we have just portrayed. In the Jeffersonian Republic, the 1% Armenian swathe of the population could not be murdered and have their property confiscated, except in violation of the Bill of Rights and probably the Constitution.

But another aspect of this phony Liberal banging of the “Democracy” tambourine every time they get a chance is that we do not even have truly “Democratic” practices in our legislative assemblies and our elections. For example, why do these proselyters of Democracy tolerate the fact that  a 60% or 66% vote is necessary to override a veto at the state or federal level, or that many bond issues must pass by 60%, or that some measures will not be inacted into law if less that 50% of the eligible voters actually vote?  All three of these examples are egregious violations of true Democracy or majority rule, and if those who preach Democracy really believed in it, they would have overthrow these undemocratic voting practices in a month. But they have quietly tolerated them for decades. When 59 votes cannot override the veto of a Democratic President, you will never hear the Democrats say anything about the virtues of majority rule. In this case they trample on true Democracy with Reidy smiles and high-fives.

Furthermore, if Democracy is majority rule, then why is it possible for roughly only 50% of the population to vote in an election, and then for the winner of that election to get 45 to 50% of the cast votes, which means that he has been elected by about 25% of the eligible voters. If the praise singers of Democracy truly believed their words, why would that say that a President who is elected with roughly 25% of the eligible voters is a “Democratically elected” official? If they really believed in Democracy, they would require that every single eligible voter vote, but of course that would contravene our Constitutional guarantee against involuntary servitude. Yet, I’ve never heard any Democrat question the legitimacy of their Administration because President Obama was elected by a mid-20s percentage of all the eligible voters.

So next time you hear someone talking about the virtues and greatness of “Our Democracy”, know that you are listening to someone who is either profoundly ignorant of political science, or else is merely a propagandist, that lowest of all professions among your Human species, also known as “a Liar”.

Is it Time to Jail the Obese?

July 15, 2012

Silverwolf has been cogitating on the feasibility of jailing the obese.

He finds something very strange in the Obama Healthcare Mandate, which overturns the prohibition against involuntary servitude amongst other egregious Constitutional violations. It seems that we are told that we have a “responsibility” to purchase medical insurance or pay an outrageous tax or penalty, but the recipients of medical care seem to have no responsibility whatsoever in Obama’s view as to how their behaviour effects medical insurance costs and medical costs nationwide. Somehow tobacco addiction, obesity, and alcohol use are all forgotten about when the Democrats talk about “responsibility”, but clearly remembered when it comes to the normal weight tobacco- and alcohol- abstainer suddenly forking out hundreds of  extra dollars a month. Somehow these self-responsible folks suddenly have a “responsibility” when it comes to paying their neighbors medical bills for conditions brought on by tobacco and alcohol and obesity, but the “victims” of their own behaviour have no responsibility it seems as to the unneccesary medical costs which they inflict on society by their self-destructive behaviour. When we see the collective costs of medical care in America as a percentage of the GDP and the Federal Budget, we realise that the costs associated with tobacco, alcohol and obesity are helping to bankrupt the nation and consequently to undermine the U.S. Dollar. And with these costs in view, one could almost say that using tobacco and alcohol, or being obese constitute a type of Treason against America in that the individual is using the balance sheet of the U.S. Treasury and all U.S. Taxpayers to clean up the mess which their own behaviour has brought about.

The other day, Silverwolf was looking at a photo of the Class of 1992 from the local high school, probably in their late 30s by now. What was striking was that out of the 25 or so in the photo, only one person could said to be of normal weight, all the others being outright fat, or “thick”. Compare that to a photo of the Class of 76 in the high school annual of that annum. Almost all the girls where of normal weight, and amazingly cute, with only a couple of corpulent demoiselles in a class of 30.

Silverwolf puts this down to Bill Clinton’s patronizing of major junk food chain restaurants when he was a popular President, the corporate subsidies these corporations have received from the heinous Corporate-Communist Import-Export Loan program, and the proliferation of junk food sales at our government schools. But in a larger sense it is down to the merging of corporations and state in America, which has gone on apace with alacrity under both Democratic and Republican Administrations. No one in government will attack the junkfood industry, like Dairy Queen with her huge corporate interests backing the President and his tax confiscations.

So since Obama and the Democrats and the non-Ron Paul Republicans all want to continue to jail people for using cannabis medically or recreationally, and since our National Debt is so huge and is swelled so much by the Medicaid and Medicare use costs associated with tobacco, alcohol, and obesity, it seems to Silverwolf to be wholly in line with their bi-partisan beloved Fascist Prohibitionist system that we consider Silverwolf’s proposal to jail the obese or anyone more than 15% over their normal body weight as well as tobacco addicts and alcohol users in government “re-education” camps where they would not be released until they had achieved a “normal” weight according to government bureaucrats, or had achieved one year and one day of abstension from tobacco and alcohol.

Jailing the obese would have a profoundly beneficial effect on America’s annual medical care bill. It would lead to a strengthening of the U.S. Dollar, a much healthier population, and many fewer orphans.

The fact that it violates the Bill of Rights should not bother our friends on the Progressive Left since they fully believe in government intervention when the end effect is a pragmatic increase in the general level of well-being in society, the effects on Individual Rights and Liberty be damned. So there shouldn’t be much problem there.

It’s on the pseudo-Conservative wing of the Republicans that there might be more resistance. Obese Republican bourbon-swillers forced to forego their cigarettes for a year might be slightly irate, and try to raise issues like the supposed importance of the Bill of Rights, but those Individual Rights objections would be lightly swiped down by the Robert’s Corporate Socialist Supreme Court now that they’ve ruled that involuntary servitude is once again O.K. in America.

Of course Silverwolf would have to raise serious Libertarian objections to his own plan, such as the egregious violations of Natural Rights law such jailings would entail. But what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and I guess if the public is going to continue to jail sick medical marijuana users or bankrupt them with their exorbitantly priced state pharmacy schemes, then Silverwolf will just have to go along with jailing the obese. That’s what the poll-going 25% of the possible electorate that put Obama in office seems to want, so it’s only just that jailing people for their unhealthy habits is also acceptable. according to the public’s vote.

Yes, jailing the obese is certainly a proposal whose time has come. It would save the nation a fortune.

And after the goals of this “corrective” program are achieved, perhaps we can move on to the meateaters.

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.

Judge Barbara Crabb’s Prayer Ruling: Jefferson’s Lips Move in the Grave

April 19, 2010

Libertarian wolves are celebrating a brief halt in the unending push towards Collectivism and Fascism in America with the recent ruling by Judge Barbara Crabb in Wisconsin that that religious blasphemy and macula on our Constitution and Bill of Rights, the National Day of Prayer, is Unconstitutional. Finally someone has called a dirty spade a dirty spade; and a spade designed to bury the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Of course, our so-called Constitutional scholar President vowed to continue to apply this unconstitutional law, in contemptuous defiance of Judge Crabb’s ruling, but given the consistent Fascist bent of our President, from “prolonged indefinite detention” to his expansion of the outrageous “Faith-based initiative” boondoggle, this comes as no surprise. Barack H. Obama is showing himself to be just as wimpy, just as malleable, and just as unprincipled, when it comes to defending the Bill of Rights, as all the men preceding him in that office who have continued to promote this illegal government promotion of organized religion.

Obama’s continued attempts to overthrow Jeffersonian Constitutionalism have come up against a brick wall in the guise of Judge Crabb. It is she alone who has halted the ongoing crush of the American Taliban, as they try to steal and rob the tax funds of atheists, agnostics, and Theists who agree with Jefferson that we must “build up a wall of separation between church and state”. And Silverwolf will take the brains of Wisechief Jefferson any day over the supposed “constitutional law professors”, and the Collectivist shrubs from Texas.

However, often overlooked in this controversy is the abridgment of Capitalist Rights which the National Day of Prayer institutionalizes. The aim and proper role of government, as we know from Jefferson and Ron Paul, is to preserve those inalienable Rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, or as Ron Paul succinctly put it, “the preservation and promotion of Individual Liberty.” That is the American government’s only legitimate function, and in the light of the clear intent of Jefferson, and the words of the Declaration of Independence, it is pellucidly obvious that those who try to usurp those Rights are enemies of the Constitution and the American way. The Religious Fascists want to take your tax money, and use it to promote their religious activity. The National Day of Prayer does this, by using the President’s time, as well as many Senator’s, for which they are being paid an “obscenely” high salary, to promote Unconstitutional activities. It is a theft of taxpayer funds plain and simple, and any Senator or Executive branch official who cannot comprehend that simple fact, obviously doesn’t have the intelligence to carry out the grave responsibilities of the office, and should be impeached forthwith.

Whether it’s the President, looting people’s funds nationally to promote the “values” he was taught in Reverend Wright’s congregation of Farrakhan-lovers, or whether it is the local school board in Texas, stealing the funds of Atheists, Agnostics, Christian supporters of Jefferson, Muslims, Jews, and Zoroastrians, to buy a PA system that will broadcast Christian prayers before the football game, it is still just basic robbery. And those who rob you are thieves.

There is nothing stopping the religious Fascists of America from accruing capital, and purchasing real estate wherein they can set up a church, synagogue, temple, ashram, or mosque, and do their religious thing. The propaganda that somehow they are being held from practicing their religion is a lie, except in the context of being forced to send their children to public schools if home schooling is not allowed. In that case, the members of a religion that required its child adherents to pray every minute they were alive, or every ten minutes, would have their Constitutional Rights violated. But here the problem is with the Collectivist-Fascist imposition that children must attend public school, and not the question of separation of mosque and state. Destroy the anti-Libertarian compulsory-attendance diktat, and this exception to religious freedom would dissolve. But that is a far different violation that the theft of the monies of Atheists and Agnostics to further the beliefs of Deists.

When Judge Crabb spoke, Jefferson’s lips moved in the grave.

Libertarian wolves and Free-Market Capitalists salute Judge Barbara Crabb, and her very wise ruling,  and declare her one of the “Mothers of the Libertarian Revolution”.

Like Silverwolf, another “Mother” for Liberty.

The Democratic-Fascist Congress vs. The Bloggers: Coercion vs. Suasion

March 30, 2010

The Democrat Corporate Fascists in Congress, who have just completed the overthrow of the Jeffersonian Rights of Man with their heinous healthcare bill, have just coerced a great victory for the Corporations over Individual Man, and proven once more that State Power is the most dangerous and most corrupting influence there is, as Jefferson and Thom Paine knew so well. That is why in the early Republic there was such a mistrust of government power, and why the Constitution is a document designed to severely limit that power.

But the Democratic Fascists in Congress have finally overthrown that Jefferson Redoubt of Liberty, and, combined with the President’s proposal for “Prolonged Indefinite Detention”,  the President’s way of saying let’s overthrow 800 years of Habeas Corpus and Magna Charta, they have finally used coercion to put the last nail in the coffin of American Freedom.

In opposition to the coercive force of the Congressional Democrats stood the bloggers, the intellectual force of that philosophy of Libertarianism which tries to change things through argument and suasion, and not through force, coercion, and, as Congressman Pelosi wants, jail time for those not buying health insurance from her corporate backers. The stiletto high-healed shoes of Mizz Pelosi have come down with full force on the eardrum of Mr. Jefferson, and the Tinnitus of Tyranny has grown so loud that the Republic has become deaf to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. The bloggers argued, and pointed out, and made all the valid points, but in the end coercion, bribery and force won out.

After the Second World War, the victors brought the vanquished to Nurnberg, and tried them for violating norms of Human Behavior that they said should never be violated, norms which Silverwolf agrees with. Undoubtedly, if the Nazis had won, Churchill, Roosevelt and Eisenhower would have been the ones in the dock. And, notwithstanding certain intellectual arguments and irregularities in the trials, there was little doubt that 90% or more of people in the Allied Countries thought the sentences appropriate. And the Allied States could impose these sentences, whatever the convoluted intellectual arguments about the niceties of international law might be. In that case, coercion was being used to carry out Justice, and few would willingly or passionately argue against such government actions.

However, when it comes to imposing a Corporate Tyranny on the American People by the means of the coercive power of the State, in this case implemented by the Congressional Democratic Corporate Fascists, the bloggers and intellectuals have only this ineffectual counter-weapon of reasoned argument and logical discussion to fight back with. We cannot impose any palliative correction on this overthrow of our beloved Bill of Rights and Constitution, we cannot impeach or stop the Tyranny that has been imposed on every formerly-Free Citizen of these United States, we cannot do anything beyond continued suasion, except to refuse to cooperate and have our bodies shipped off to prison camps for not paying our now-mandated corporate toll, or move to a Capitalist country, of which now there is not one truly in the entire world.

The Democratic Congress believes in Coercion. Libertarians and Ron Paul-Republicans believe in the Non-aggression Principle, which states that “No man or group of men may aggress against the person or property of anyone else.” This is our morality; the morality of the intellectual bloggers. This is the principle by which we measure all government actions, and it is the principle which Thomas Jefferson was trying so hard to defend against the likes of Corporate Fascists like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hilary Clinton and the President.

The War Criminal Benito Mussolini, the founder of Fascism, defined it briefly. “Fascism is corporatism.” See, Mussolini didn’t always lie.

The Healthcare Bill is a Mafia extortion, carried out by the State, for the benefit of its Corporate Insiders in the industries that benefit from it, and instituted by their friends and lapdogs in the Democratic Fascist Congress.

In opposition to this, all we Libertarians have is the power of logical argument, and rational discussion. The power of the Truth over Lies in the Human Brain. Just as Martin Luther King trusted in the basic decency of people to show up the horrendous Injustice that infected the Jim Crow-South, so must Libertarians trust to the basic decency of the American people and their sense of Justice as they see every one of their fellow citizens finally coerced into paying monthly tribute to the Pharaoh of the Corporations.

Democratic Fascist Coercion vs. Libertarian Suasion.

It’s what the Democrats call a level playing field.

Prolonged Detention: The Next Step in Obama’s Fascism

June 9, 2009

Wisechief Jefferson taught us, along with the Founding Fathers, that detention without trial is one of the hallmarks of totalitarian regimes. All throughout history, tyrannical regimes have used this tactic to silence their critics, and hide their crimes. From Henry the Eighth to Hitler to Stalin, this method has proved one of the favorites of the Miscreants of History.

And now it’s President Obama’s turn. In a speech on May 21, the President proposed overthrowing the Bill of Rights, which requires that the government charge you and give you a speedy trial, by insinuating the heinous practice of “prolonged detention” into our legal code, that is, indefinite detention without a charge being brought or a defendant’s prompt trial. This piece of Fascist scat has been dressed up by the President as a new and necessary part of our legal system, although we’ve survived without it very nicely for nearly a quarter of a millennium.

In his speech, Obama criticises Bush’s “ad hoc” method of dealing with legal issues, but then goes on to say that he will “reshape the standards” in line with the “rule of law”, a phrase which he used several times in his speech. It never seemed to occur to our very bright President, that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is the Law of the Land, and anything that directly contradicts these documents is an attempt to overthrow the “Rule of Law”.  He mentions that al-Qaeda and its affiliates are at war with the United States, but he fails to mention that anyone who deliberately tries to overthrow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is in a state of war against the Law of the Land. Obama talks of a “legitimate legal framework” in phrases reminiscent of Governor Romney’s pledge, made during one of the Republican televised debates, to “call in the lawyers” and see how he could get around the Constitution. It’s obvious that Wisechief Jefferson well knew what kind of caitiffs would be coming down the line several hundred years from his time, still trying to impose tyranny on human beings.

Obama went on to talk of “developing an appropriate legal regime” outside of the courts, and even the military commissions, in order to be able to hold people for “prolonged detention” — that is, indefinite imprisonment without trial, without a sentence, or without saying how long they will be held. In other words, 100% pure unadulterated Fascism.

In never seemed to cross the President’s supposedly brilliant mind that some future tyrant in America, a Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or Franco, could use such a law to round up and jail forever their political opponents, or that a law that directly contradicts the very clear demands of the Bill of Rights could be unconstitutional. Fortunately, brighter minds like legal scholar Jonathan Turley, and Senator Russell Feingold, have pointed out that this latest Fascist proposal of the Obama Regime is almost certainly unconstitutional, and would fail a court test. Happily, Senator Feingold is going to hold Congressional hearings on this obscene proposal, so that the whole Fascist stink of the latest Obamaism will be able to be inhaled by the American Public.

The constant stream of totalitarian legislation coming out of the Obama administration should be a wake-up call to all those Democrats who truly favor the Rule of Law over all the unconstitutional early meanderings of the Obama regime: the massive giveaways to the corporate business sector at the public’s expense, the continued persecution of medical marijuana proponents by the Federal government in states that have legalized it, the “voluntary national service requirement”, the expansion of Bush’s faith-based initiative, the continuation of the military commissions and the continued suspension of habeas corpus, the failure to prosecute torture,  and the escalation of the war into Afghanistan and Pakistan.

President Obama is the greatest threat to the American Constitution since President Bush. Only the names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Obama’s First Hundred Days: The Audacity of Hypocrisy

April 26, 2009

Barack Obama doesn’t disappoint. At least, he didn’t disappoint Silverwolf’s expectations for another Presidency filled with hypocrisy and phony and immoral policies, just like the previous Clinton administration, as we view his first hundred days in power. All Silverwolf can say is, after the first hundred days, thank goodness there are only 1341 days to go.

First off, let’s look at the President’s lying policy on medical cannabis. During the campaign, Herr Obama pledged to not prosecute any medical cannabis suppliers if they were in compliance with State laws. In other words, if the States legalized medical cannabis, the Federal government wouldn’t intervene. But now, in blatant contradiction of his “solemn” campaign pledge, Obama’s hand-picked DA, Eric Holder, says the Federal government will prosecute a grower in California, Charles Lynch, who was growing in accordance with California state law, and will seek the maximum five-year penalty. We can see that, when it comes to cannabis, Obama is as big a Fascist as Clinton, the Government of Singapore, or Comrade Castro.

And of course, he is drumming up the “war on drugs” again, the same tired rhetoric we’ve heard from every Democrat and Republican since Lying Bain-of-the-world Johnson. An instant worldwide end to prohibition would end the drug war once and for all, by taking the profits out of it. But such a simple solution is too logical for the simple mind of our new simpleton President.

Then, of course, there is Obama’s continual escalation of his war in Afghanistan, a hopeless cause as the British, Russians, and anyone else has found out who has tried to control that mountainous region. Obama is already sending more troops than he originally said he would be sending, and let’s remember that he has asked for a 9% increase in the Military-Industrial giveaway of the wealth of American Capitalism to the military suppliers. Some military is of course necessary, but we’d guess we could defend our own borders for one-fifth of what we spend maintaining 700 military bases around the world.

Obama has also committed his first war crimes in Afghanistan, killing women and children, it was reported, during the drone attacks on Islamic militants. Perhaps the women were named Michelle and had two daughters? Perhaps their income was $2.7million? Perhaps the President would not have authorized this attack if the price were his wife and children? But, as Madelaine Alldull once said, that’s collateral damage for ya.

Now let’s move on to the President’s disgraceful behavior in virtually nodding to the Queen of England, a Democracy and once a hot-bed of civil rights, while bowing low before the King of Saudi Arabia,  a Kingdom that chops off hands and heads, forbids women to drive, and forbids Christians to bring in their Bible. Should an American President bow low before such a tyrant and civil rights violator, while merely nodding to someone who oversaw the largely peaceful liberation of dozens of former colonies in her Empire back into the hands of their native owners? Has the Queen of England denied Muslims and Jews the right to worship in her overwhelmingly Christian country? The answer is no, and for that alone the Queen of England, if anyone, deserved the deeper bow, not the nominal head of a civil rights cesspool. De rigeur, the White House tried to wriggle out of this one, by claiming that Obama bowed so low before the Saudi King, because the King is so short. However,  they failed to mention that the Queen of England is, in point of fact, even shorter, something that was never mentioned by the White House staff. .

 But of course, what can we expect when Obama appoints Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, a woman whose husband has received millions upon millions of dollars for his official library from the Saudis?  No conflict of interest there, is there Mr. President? And this woman is supposed to be an objective force in the midst of Middle East negotiations. But Ms. Rod-’em has already been turning up the pressure on the Israelis, in accordance with the wishes of her masters in Riyadh, by threatening Israel that if it didn’t start talking to the Palestinians, even while they continue to rain down missiles on Israeli civilians, already killing and maiming many, that Israel will lose its “support amongst the Arabs” in its opposition to Iran’s nuclear threat. “Support amongst the Arabs”? Is the woman insane, or merely relaying the message from Riyadh, which is now the message from Obama’s Washington? This is all exactly as Silverwolf expected.

The President’s wrecking of the US dollar, as he adds two Trillion dollars to the national debt in one year, and passes out hundreds of billions of dollars to the donors of the Democratic machine, has already been commented on extensively in Silverwolf’s many blogs on the subject, so he won’t go over old ground again. Suffice it to say that Austrian-oriented economists and investors know exactly what a virtual crime, a legalized theft of the wealth of the American people, under color of Law, is now taking place. Unfortunately, it will take a collapse of the dollar to bring most Democrats around to a sense of reality. But they voted in their own collapse, and as we are all responsible for our own actions, you can’t get too worked up when someone slits their own throat. We warned ’em.

However, perhaps the most egregious hypocrisy of the new Administration is the fact that they have not removed all the myriad overthrows of our civil rights laws — the unpatriotic and Bill-of-Rights busting Patriot Act,  and the Military Commissions act, which overthrows the ancient Principle of Habeas Corpus. The fact that the Democrats have not said a peep about these civil rights usurpations in the first hundred days is very telling. They realized they have pacified the womanized American public. A nation of sheep on estrogens.

And finally, as a cherry on this audacious cake of hypocrisy,  we come to the President’s disgusting warm-handshake and big smile when encountering the Collectivist of Caracas, the obese Hugo Chavez, dictator of a thin people. While diplomatic decorum would require that a head of state not blatantly insult a nominal head of a dictatorship, Silverwolf believes that the head of any country that not only violates human rights, as Venezuela does, but also engages in whipping up hatred against religious minorities, as Chavez did when he called Jews the killers of Christ in a speech not long before a synagogue in Caracas was invaded and trashed, and its occupants beaten— such a head of state should be treated with the utmost frigidity by any American President.  Such blatantly racist inciting to riot should have required no handshake at all, merely a sombre nod of the head. But what would one expect from someone who regarded Rev. Wright as his spiritual mentor, and who hung out for twenty years with folks who would give Louis Farrakhan their Man of the Year award. Being a racist bigot and a Fascist doesn’t seem to deter the President from flashing his biggest smile, and extending the hand of “friendship”. But Silverwolf, and America, can dispense with such “friends”.

No, President Obama has not disappointed Silverwolf’s expectations in the least. But actually, since this blog has taken a day to write, Silverwolf has good news for the American people. Now there are only 1340 days to go.

Mrs. Clinton: Collaborating with The Fascist Chinese

March 1, 2009

Silverwolf really had to exert abdominal control to manage the urge to regurge when he heard Mrs. Clinton’s disgusting speech the other day, speaking of “cooperation” with the Red Chinese Fascist Miscreants. That such a despicable regime, which has so desecrated the spirit of Jeffersonian Liberalism inherent in the Bill of Rights, should have a representative of the American Government, and a rank-and-file member of the Democratic Party, talk of “cooperation” with that regime, is a black black stain on the American Republic, and will go down in the history books as one of the lowest points of American morality (or should we say immorality).

Libertarians spit on such “cooperation” with a country and a Communist dictatorship that has invaded and occupied Tibet for almost 60 years now, without being thrown out of the UN on its ear. A country that persecutes and tortures Buddhists,  Christians and Muslims, and other religious sects, for something which is considered a sacred right of the Individual in America. A country that executes thousands each year with the Fascist Death Penalty, an abomination that should be banned all over the face of the Earth, though there is no doubt that war criminals and torturers deserve it. A country that subjects its workers to the most inhumane and dangerous conditions, killing thousands each year by doing so.  A country that executes people after kangaroo trials, and then sells the body parts to wealthy Asians and Westerners. This is the miscreant government that Mrs. Clinton calls for cooperation with. And by doing so, she morally smears every living American.

Mrs. Clinton, we Libertarian Wolves spit on your Quisling cooperation with Fascist China. Count us out when you talk of cooperation as an official representative of the American Government. Don’t taint ordinary Americans and Wolves with your monumental Immorality, comparable to cooperating with Nazi Germany before the war, for the Human Rights Violations are comparable. We can now clearly see of what moral stuff this new “changed” administration is made of. The stuff that is usually flushed down the loo.

Commie China out of Tibet! Keep Taiwan Free!
