They’re Libertarians and They Don’t Know It: The Freedom from Pesticides Bill of Rights

October 1, 2013

In a remote rural county of Oregon, a radical proposition is being placed before the voters that Silverwolf thinks is very significant for radical Individualist Libertarianism, not only because it attacks the Corporate Poisoners, who, in collusion with the Democrats, are slowly poisoning not only the beautiful lands in Oregon, but the local residents as well, but also because the Initiative would place the Rights of Individuals above the fictitious “Rights” of Corporations. These Corporate mass poisonings of the Public, through aerial spraying of dangerous pesticides adjacent to residential properties and lands, in order to swell the corporate coffers of the pesticide Industry, are the fruits of what anti-Fascist Historian  Dave Emory has called the Borman Underground Reich Capital Network, which is basically the wealth looted by the Nazis during WWII translated into corporate power throughout the world. The poisoning of Oregonians with Bayer pesticides is not very different, morally speaking, from the mass poisoning of Jews by Bayer during World War II, except in scale, only now the Democrats are defending the Nazis, instead of attacking them (though, of course, Roosevelt wouldn’t bomb the rail lines leading to the concentration camps, or even the camps themselves). The disgusting Democratic Governor of Oregon, John Kitzhaber, fully backs these attacks on the health of Oregon’s citizens and children, and the attacks on the value of their properties when pesticide residues drift onto their land. And this Shower calls himself not only a Governor but also an M.D.

The group opposing the Fascists and their Democrat Collaborators is the Freedom From Pesticides Alliance at freedomfrompesticidesalliance.org, which is based in Josephine County, Oregon. The actual initiative they are placing on the ballot can be read at their website.

Residential Property Owners must betake themselves to the defense of the environmental integrity of their demesnes, or this will become a rotten realm, fit for no man to live in henceforth. The Democrats and Republicans are destroying the Earth, as are the leaders of virtually every other country, from Valerie Puta, the Russian Whore, in her Siberia, to the Indonesian Tree Butchers of Borneo, to the Nazis with Suntans down under, murdering their kangaroos and deforesting the continent while they push boatloads of women and children back to sea, to the Japanese, Singaporean, and Malaysian investors, who make their money by destroying the rainforests of Asia.

And added to the massive spraying of toxic pesticides adjacent to the properties of Individual Free-Market Capitalists, is a proposed increase in logging and spraying by the Democrat, Congressman Peter DeFazio, which comes in the face of what the other day the UN called a 95% certain chance that global warming is taking place due to Human activity. Trees are Carbon Banks. The Democrats, including Obama and DeFazio, tell us that we have global warming and urgently need a carbon tax, but at the same time DeFazio introduces a Bill that increases logging on so-called “public lands” though they are administered by the BLM as a lucrative boondoggle for themselves and their Fascist, timber-corporation bedfellows. BLM collaboration pays the lucrative salaries, benefit packages, and pensions of the BLM bureaucrats.

So even though living trees are known to be wonderful carbon banks, DeFazio tells us we must cut more trees, as at the same time he tells us we should pay a carbon tax for the sake of the Planet and the coming generations. At the same time, he permits the use of atrazine in America, around children, when it has been banned in the EU since 2003, a ban he critically called for in the 1980s, but now is mum on. What a hypocritical Shower is Liberal Democrat Congressman Peter DeFazio!

(For an exhaustive examination of the pesticides which the Democratic Corporate Fascists are permitting to be sprayed on Americans, you can refer to preciousdirt.org, which is an excellent site for such information.)

It is only Libertarians, who want to defend their Inalienable Natural Right to the Quiet Enjoyment of their Property, and Environmentalists, who rarely seem to understand Free-Market economics, and who seem to have an animus against Capitalism, despite all the benefits it has brought to man’s basic standard of living, but who also share the Libertarians desire to have their properties free from invasion by toxic poisons — it is only these two groups who seem motivated enough to challenge the gradual Corporate Nazification of America, conducted by the mainstream Democrats and Republicans.

Silverwolf has written in the past of how these two philosophies, Libertarianism and Environmentalism, must come together and merge if we are ever to have a free world of free people in an unpolluted environ. A radical, Individual Jeffersonian Libertarianism, as seen in the original Bill of Rights and Constitution, is ultimately based on the defense of Individual Property Rights (and Professor Rothbard has clearly explained how all Rights, including Civil Rights, are ultimately forms of Property Rights, including the Right to own your own body),  Environmentalism, a loving of the Earth and Nature, and a wanting to preserve them as pristinely as possible, is also a type of Property Rights Defense Movement, although here the aim is the survival and health of the Human Race and all Life on Earth. 

Through the legal weapon of the Freedom from Pesticide Bill of Rights, the voters of Josephine County will have a chance to prohibit the use of pesticides by corporate or government entities on all lands within the county except private residential lands. Though they have been accused of being on the side of corporations by the Left, Libertarians like  Professor Murray Rothbard have  repeatedly said that no one has the right to pollute the air you breathe or the water you drink. And, of course, one of the main Libertarian concepts, along the with Non-aggression Axiom, is the idea of freedom from invasion, whether of ones body by pesticide poisoning, rape, assault, or the Draft, or of ones property, like ones land.

As to the Crimes of Child Poisoning and Well Poisoning, — the Governmental Authority at the Federal and State levels has the responsibility and the authority to stop aggressions against Individuals like child poisonings, but that authority this day has become an abuse against Individual Property Rights to the very pitch of wickedness. The Crimes of Well Poisoning and Child Poisoning are so heinous that they may well warrant Capital Punishment, though that might sound extreme. and we have always strongly opposed the Death Penalty on Principle. But we’d settle for Life on Gruel at dull labor, which is what many Law-abiding Americans end up with, or even having the bottom fall out of their corporate stock portfolios, which in America is an even more feared form of Capital Punishment. (“Go ahead and execute me, but Please don’t ruin my stock portfolio!” cried the Corporate CEO at his trial.) Certainly such Crimes deserve at least 20 years in jail.

Governor Kitzhaber and Congressman DeFazio are Corporate Fascists who need to be impeached. These Showers are typical of the bulk of Democratic Politicians, just as deadly to children as the Corporate Republicans. It is a long way to the day when Silverwolf’s dream of having all buildings subterranean is realized, with the surface of the earth looking like one huge contiguous park or forest (and any necessary buildings above ground designed in the Gothic style of Oxford and Cambridge), but the first step to even having an Earth populated by Humans, Animals and Trees may be contained within this Bill.

It seems to us that in using the “Rights” argument to fight the Corporate Nazis, the Environmentalists, at least in this case, are finally on the “Rights” track, though we think the idea of “Community Rights” is an incorrect one which the Corporations can easily slap down. This is because a “Community” is a Collectivist Entity, just like a Corporation. Both are Notional Concepts, mere intellectual phantoms, and not a real Individual Human Being like you, with Inalienable Rights protected by Jefferson’s beautiful Bill of Rights. If a “Community”, which is a Collective, can have Rights, it will be argued, then why not a Corporation, which is also a Collective in our view, although without the coercion of being forced to stay in that Collective (i.e. a worker can walk off the job and quit; an investor can sell his stock).

Moreover, the “community rights” issue is actually a false attempt to enlarge the Jeffersonian concept of Natural Rights. Natural Rights were only inherent in Individual Human Beings, we’d guess in Jefferson’s mind, because at the time environmental pollution and deforestation in America probably never entered into men’s consciousness.  Back then, someone might decry the cutting of a particular grove or area that they loved, but the environmental degradation the upcoming generations are currently facing has gone way beyond that.

However, in establishing a “community rights” concept in Law, the Environmentalists are establishing, or rather re-inforcing, a dangerous anti-Jeffersonian concept — the concept of collective Rights. This phoney and false concept is the very reason Corporations have been able to establish and maintain such a massive violation of the Bill of Rights against Individual Citizens, as well as enabling whole groups to shift their tax burthen to other, less powerful groups and Individuals, both vile forms of cozenage. For example, married people and people with children getting huge tax deductions in the form of exemption credits which single people don’t qualify for (although if we continue to have the immoral income tax, then people with children under 17 should continue to get a tax deduction for up to two children). This massive injustice has gone on for decades, and is soon to be expanded with the legalization of Gay marriage. Such inequalities are corrupt and immoral, but you’ll never hear the Democratic politicians using their bully pulpit to denounce them, and call for their immediate abolition. On the contrary, they applaud it.

So, the establishment of “community rights” is a dangerous, collectivist phantom, that does not exist. However, since most of America passively accepts these collectivist injustices, such as corporate tax breaks and privileges, and marriage tax breaks, then going for “community rights” fits in nicely with the deception. If it helps halt attacks on Individual Free-Marketeer’s bodies and lands, then it is worth trying.

Another problem with the concept of “community rights” is: who defines the “community”? Is it a specific geographic area, and who gets the power to decide where the boundaries are? Now, in this case of Josephine County, the boundaries of the “community” are the borders of the county, so the concept is limited, at least to that extent  in this case. But  what about the members of the community who want the spraying and clearcut logging to continue? What about the people who hate trees, want to kill off Nature, and are so misanthropic that they want to see an end to the Human Being.  Aren’t the Necrophiles entitled to community rights also, since they are part of the community, and it could not be defined as a community without them?

Obviously, the idea of “community” can be extended outwardly indefinitely unto the utmost inhabited regions of the Earth. In actuality, the only “community” on the planet is Human Beings; it includes everybody. But we obviously don’t have control of what happens in “communities” in Siberia or North Korea. And in the short run, we think it imperative for Jeffersonian Classical Liberalism, that America continue to exist as a separate country, since it has the most Libertarian Constitution in the world, and by merging America into a “world community” at the present time, that Constitution would be quickly overthrown by the 80% of the world that is still Totalitarian.

No, the Environmentalists need to stick to one simple point: defending Individual Rights, (and ultimately those are all Individual Property Rights). That’s all Jefferson bit off, and it’s plenty. Don’t complicate it by saying that “ecosystems” or “natural communities” have Rights, because most of the American public, and certainly the legal scholars, won’t buy that. Animals don’t even have rights in America; they can be butchered and eaten by their owners, or butchered and have their corpses sold, to be pleached and plaited with human spittle; they can be slowly tortured to death in useless experiments at universities. What a vile end to a joyous life that began as a chick or a calf or a goat kid or a lamb or a baby salmon!

So if animals don’t have rights in America, and trees don’t have rights, you’re not going to convince a judge or the voting public that “ecosystems or natural communities” have rights, although “natural communities” does include in its concept both the ecosystem and the people living in it, so it might have rights because it involves Individual Humans by definition. But it still fails on the grounds of instilling rights in things other than Humans, which we don’t think will wash with the courts or the public.

However, this is picking tiny flaws in what is otherwise a seemingly well-wrought piece of legislation. One very important point this Bill does address, and it is a point Silverwolf has put forth many times in his posts, is that Individuals must be put above Corporations in the eyes of the Law. Our Jeffersonian Constitution speaks only of Individual Rights; it says nothing about Corporate Rights, and so, in our Laws, Libertarians must fight solely for Individual Rights, for the idea of “Corporate Rights” is an oxymoron and a lie. Collectives don’t have Rights; Individuals do.

So kudos on the Environmental Revolutionaries who crafted this wonderful, though slightly flawed bill. This Libertarian howl of Freedom is for you, and for the necessary coming day when we shall see the marriage of Jeffersonian Classical Liberalism or Libertarianism with the Environmentalists, who are Libertarian Defenders of the Earth and Private Property Rights, but don’t know it yet.

Enviro-Libertarianism: A New Necessary Political Outlook

December 7, 2012

It seems to Silverwolf that what the world and the West and especially America really needs is a new political movement which he would call “Enviro-Libertarianism”, a combination of the Libertarian maxim that 1) no person or group of persons may aggress against the Property Rights of any other person (including their own body which Libertarianism also regards as a Property Right) and 2) the principle that, as Ron Paul has said, no one has the right to pollute the air you breathe or the water you drink.

Silverwolf thinks that without bringing together the twin outlooks of a Jeffersonian-minarchist, radically free-market, Capitalism, and the environmental safeguards that would protect Individuals and their property, and indeed the whole planet and its animals, against the gross environmental pollution of the earth that has gone on for decades and is now accelerating beyond the Fail-Safe point, — yea, without this critical synthesis, there will be an envionmental chaos that will wipe out the human species. Only a merging of the Libertarian Philosophy of respect for the Individual and the sacredness of his Rights, magnificently codified by Wisechief Jefferson in the Bill of Rights, and the sane responsibility of the Environmental movement, that loves the earth and its animals trees and wants to preserve this miraculous paradise for future humans instead of raping it to benefit those corporations and their stockholders in bed with big government all over the world — only this merger will save both the planet, Capitalism, and Jeffersonian Republicanism.

Murray Rothbard pointed out that when private interests own resources like copper or timber in a truly free-market, they have to ration their annual harvest if they want their business enterprise to be self-sustaining, say for a hundred years, but when government controls huge swathes of resource-rich land and is in bed with major corporations, like the timber industry, and sells those resources to the corporations at below market prices, it encourages those industries they do business with to take as much as they can in as short a time as they can without regard to further sustainability. And so we have gross clearcuts all over the West with so-called Liberal Democrats like Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) calling for even bigger forest rapes or “thinnings”, with the “lumber” going to totalitarian Communist China. The Northwest Forests of America are being decimated by so-called Liberal Democrats like Peter DeFazio, Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, and Governor John Kitzhaber, who have increased the cutting of the Forests in the past years under Democrat Obama, and who stand by and permit the dumping of thousands of pounds of toxic herbicides and pesticides on the forests in populated areas full of children. And think of all the innocent critters, birds and lil rascal varmints whose playgrounds and bliss have been wiped out by the collusion of DeFazio, Merkley, Wyden, Obama and Kitzhaber with the timber industry against the sacred Earth. They are destroying your Earth instead of defending it.

And this decimation of the forests is going on at exactly the same time that they and their fellow Democrats bleat their call for a carbon-tax that will come out of the pockets of the little guy, not the big logging interests.

Now tell me, Congressman DeFazio, if it is so important to institute a carbon-tax because the world is so close to the brink of destruction from global warming, then why is is alright to cut even one single tree if, as we have been told countless times, trees are carbon banks that store excess carbon-dioxide as they grow, only releasing it when they die and decay. The glaring contradiction and hypocrisy of these Forest Rapists is very clear.

Gee, Congressman DeFazio, if our environment is that fragile now that we need to be taxed, then why not call for an immediate logging moratorium on Federal lands, say for 30 years? Why is a tax crucial, but destroying even more carbon banks in the form of trees is not crucial? If global warming is real, that logging moratorium might make the whole difference in the planet and its inhabitants surviving. If global warming is not real, and the earth re-cools, and with 30 years of unmolested growth rebuilding some of the desecrated areas of the Forest, then perhaps commercial logging on private lands could be resumed if there were still any demand by then for wood as a construction material.

These fracking Congressional Democrats, in collusion with their blood brothers, the fracking Republicans, are destroying this miraculous planet and its miraculous life with their eternal bleat of “jobs” while they pick up their $150 grand-a-year for moving their lips and showering, these People’s Representatives who make 3.75 times approximately what the Average Adjusted Gross Income is for all Americans. Some “Evermans”, huh, these Senators and Congressmen and Presidents and Governors. Only Congressman Ron Paul had the integrity to pledge that he would only accept the Average AGI as his Presidential salary, in a wonderful gesture that illustrated the point that the President is not above the People but serves at the Will of the People. No more Emperor Nixons, thank you.

Sadly, the Green parties throughout the world seem to always side with the Left, or Liberal Democrat regimes and administrations, not realizing that Socialism and Central Planning is disastrous for a society and will always lead to poverty, as one sees in so many of Obama’s and Cardinal Geithner’s various financial and medical insurance schemes. In Australia the Greens side with that sadist and racist, Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of a country that stole its land from the Aborigines, and now won’t let in a few Tamils fleeing the horrendous human rights record of Sri Lanka, Muslim asylum seekers from Burma, and others fleeing Iran and Iraq, into a vast land the size of America which could easily absorb a few thousand more refugees. In America, the border cities are stuffed with so-called “illegal immigrants” by the hundreds of thousands and millions, but things don’t fall apart and go along pretty smoothly. Haven’t heard of any armed uprisings in L.A. by a “Mexican Liberation Front Army”, have you?. But fragile Australia can’t house a few thousand extremely brave immigrants, or let them go about on conditional release within the community, and instead keeps them in virtual prison camps offshore, living in horrendous conditions (tents in the rain that leak) as was recently reported on Radio Australia. Prime Minister Julia Gillard is a disgrace to Australia, a disgrace to the Libertarian tradition of British Liberalism which was one of the bright spots of the British Commonwealth, at least in theory, and, finally, a disgrace to the Human Race. Western Liberal Governments should step up and criticise this Harridan most harshly. Shame on Australia for its disgraceful and cruel treatment of these brave Human Beings

But I run before my horse to market.

The Green Parties, unfortunately, in Europe, in Australia, and in America invariably side with the Left. And, unfortunately, the Libertarian Party has failed to distinguish between what we would call “Corporate Libertarianism” which attempts to equate the Rights of Corporations with those of Individuals, and “Individual Libertarianism” which was the original concept of Jefferson and was most recently championed by Professor Murray Rothbard when he founded the modern Libertarian Party. Rothbard’s later severe break with the Koch Brothers perfectly illustrates the clear dichotomy between these two views, Individual Libertarianism vs Corporate Libertarianism. Whereas our Constitution speaks of “Individual Rights”, it makes no mention of Corporations whatsoever. Corporations were a cunning, but necessary, later invention, but in today’s political climate it is absolutely essential to distinguish between the Rights of Corporations and the Rights of Individuals, and it is the Rights of Individuals which must be put on top.

The Democrats and Republicans have reversed this natural order, putting the Corporation above the Individual, and this perversion of Jefferson’s intent in the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights must be re-reversed.

Indeed, we’d put it to you that “Corporate Libertarianism” is not Libertarianism at all, but actually its opposite if you look at how it works in America and abroad. It’s a form of the old Mercantilism of the British Kings who would give the plum monopolies to their friends, relatives, and fawning minions.

So, the point is that Environmentalism must be linked with the Individual Libertarianism that seemed to animate Rothbard, and not with the Corporate Libertarianism which is the main braying call of the mainstream Republicans. Ron Paul represented such an Individual Rothbardian Libertarianism in our view.

Today’s news of a huge fall of one-third in the sperm count and quality in French males  in the past 30 years is a confirmation of the continuing domination of the corporations as they pollute the Earth and its People, and that sperm count fall in France, of course, mainly took place under the enlightened “progressive Left-wing’ French government in Europe, that stronghold of the Greens. We can see how well the Greens are protecting the Environment and the Earth and its People.

The only thing that will save the World now is a radical Environmentalism, that treats environmental polluters the way you’d treat rapists, married to a radically free-market Libertarianism, that takes the defense of the Individual’s Property Rights, including his body, as the only legitimate function of government.

Without this marriage the world is doomed.
