The FED Violates Vegan Rights, and Everybody Elses Too

December 2, 2010

Thanks to Congressman Ron Paul’s persistent calls for auditing the FED, and FED transparency, the Federal Reserve today reluctantly disclosed the roster of names of institutions it had made loans to. It was not a pretty picture.

For not only had the FED loaned money to U.S. banks, as one would have imagined the FED should be limited to by common sense and by law, but it had also loaned money to McDonalds, hedge funds, and even foreign Swiss banks, as well as a massive loan to Pimco, which obviously undermines the validity in the minds of investors of any pronunciamentos coming from the famous names at that company. Bloomberg News even mentions a loan to an individual, Michael Dell.

Quite apart from the unfairness of this process, and the massive danger this precedent creates for the future of Capitalism in America, since now any Socialist government in America can merely call on its FED to restore “order to the markets” by massively intervening to produce profits for those companies given the blessing of any future Communistic or Fascist regime, this proposal is also a slap in the face to American Vegetarians and Vegans, as well as the Hindu-American Community,  who are being forced, through the FED, to support a company which they feel great moral revulsion towards, and which they ardently hope will go belly-up. They may even intentionally boycott all the non-meat products of this company, in order not to give it any profits whatsoever, and thus hasten its demise.  But here comes the Federal Reserve, bailing out one of the cruelest and most ecologically-destructive companies in America (in Silverwolf’s opinion) against the moral values of those who are forced, through their taxes, to supply the money the FED throws at these companies. This is all deeply immoral, and totally contrary to the concept of Government which Thomas Jefferson held. Just as we need a complete separation of Church and State, so we also need a complete separation of Economy and State, with the one exception of when people are actually starving in the streets.

Those who thought that Congressman Ron Paul’s warnings against Federal Reserve shenanigans were a little extreme, are finding out that they were not extreme at all, but highly accurate, once again showing that Congressman Paul is probably the wisest Congressman in the Congress, in terms of his grasp of economics, American history, and political theory. Virtually all the politicians in Congress are just that: brainwashed and lazy politicians who are working for their lobbyists and their own bank accounts and retirement funds; very few have the energy to study and come to understand the three subjects which a great American statesman must master: economics (and not the Keynesian kind), American history, and Jeffersonian political theory. Virtually everything Congressman Paul had predicted for the Obama years has come true, with the exception of the collapse of the dollar. And that may still occur.

Whether you feel the FED should be abolished, like the Austrian School of Economics and the Mises Institute do, or whether you are a Keynesian who things the FED just needs to be “reformed”, you must acknowledge the outrageousness and danger of what the FED did with these loans. After looking at the roster, we can all commiserate much more fully with Congressman Paul’s repeated warnings.

And the Federal Reserve owes Hindu-Americans an apology.

Silverwolf Apologises to the Hindu-American Community

December 10, 2008

Silverwolf feels driven, in this blog, to apologise deeply to the Hindu Community in America for the behavior of his fellow Americans, who force that Community to pay taxes both towards the local school system, which serves meat, and the Federal system, which permits people to buy meat on the Food Stamp Program. Hindu’s are also forced to pay state income taxes, which support prisons that serve meat, as well as the U.S. military, which, surprisingly, also serves meat. Silverwolf is outraged that Hindu-Americans (or American Hindus — there are some converts) are forced to pay taxes in order to support activities and purchases which they find deeply offensive and immoral. It is moral heresy to force these Individuals to have to pay taxes towards all these institutions and programs, including the costs of Federal meat inspections, because of their deep moral repugnance towards them, and they should be given an immediate exemption from  having to pay such taxes which purchase meat products, as should all Vegan and Vegetarian Americans. And, should Silverwolf’s idea for a tax exemption come to fruition, he believes Americans would find there were many more Vegetarians in America than was heretofore estimated.

Notwithstanding his disagreement with certain aspects of Hinduism, and his general discomfiture with organized religions, Silverwolf  must state his admiration for the rich philosophic process in Hinduism which led to the insight that Vegetarianism was the true dietary way of Mankind. Not all great religions have found their way to this insight, though Silverwolf believes Genesis 1:29 gives a Vegan basis to all of the major Middle Eastern Religions, and Buddhism has many Vegetarian adherents also. But Hinduism is the only major Religion to champion Vegetarianism, and in that its adherents should be very glad.

Also, those in the anti-abortion movement, who object strenuously to their taxes being used to federally fund abortions, should cast a thought to the Hindus and Vegans in America, who are forced into the same moral dilemma: either risk a huge brouhaha with the government which would probably end you in prison, or quietly comply with a tax which violates your deepest religious convictions. It is a dilemma that should not be forced on the innocent, law-abiding, citizen, but it is forced on him by Government, the Leviathan State, and in that is a great moral tragedy. How many family men are willing to pursue the path of Gandhi, and go to jail on a principle, when it would mean destitution for their wife and children? Not many. And in this injustice, it is the Vegetarian and Hindu-American communities that bear the brunt.

All Silverwolf can say to the Hindu-American Community regarding his fellow American meateaters, who force them to pay these taxes, is this, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

Well, maybe.
