APPENDICES

 

 

 

 

Appendix 1:  Synopsis

 

 

1-0  INTRODUCTION

Some background is necessary in order for Politics to make any sense, starting with clearing up some key misconceptions.

 

1-1  Reality Check

Human beings are limited, but Reality matters nonetheless and we have to do our best to come to grips with it.

 

1-2  Success vs. Failure

Success is all about contribution, not gratification as many people assume, and Freedom promotes Success while Slavery promotes Failure.

 

1-3  Science vs. Religion

Science has been acclaimed while Religion has taken a beating lately, but neither is redundant—or without risk.

 

1-4  Socialism vs. Individualism

Both Socialism and (pathological) Individualism are dangerously myopic, but Social Individualism can produce Real Freedom and Real Social Justice.

 

1-5  Democracy

Democracy ain't what it's cracked up to be, and certainly isn't Freedom, but does present a unique opportunity to create Real Freedom.

 

 

2-0  FREEDOM

Freedom and Slavery are poorly understood, and the limits of our understanding have become the limits of our political achievement.

 

2-1  Freedom vs. Slavery

Freedom is self-ownership, Slavery is ownership by others, and the two are mutually exclusive.  Government based on human-invented law ("decree") is inherently Coercive, and the elimination of Coercion requires new (Defensive) institutions.

 

2-2  Persuasion vs. Coercion

Being able to distinguish between Persuasion and Coercion is neither very difficult, nor is it dispensable to anyone who aspires to Freedom.

 

2-3  Power Accumulation

Political Power is conserved, and Power Accumulation is Power Theft.  Aristocratic Elitists embody Political Arrogance, not the Political Humility necessary to Freedom.

 

2-4  Limited Slavery

Limited government represents a necessary intermediate step between Slavery and Freedom, but has been confused for an end in itself—a role for which it's poorly suited due to its inherent instability.

 

2-5  Marxism

Marxism is a hugely popular political scam, a fact well-known to Marxist Thugs but unrecognized by well-meaning Marxist Dupes.  Marxism represents the way forward for Aristocrats of all stripes, and our political future consists of a fight-to-the-death between Marxism and Freedom.

 

 

3-0  DEFENSE

Defense is the thing without which Freedom (the absence of Coercion) cannot occur.

 

3-1  Aggression vs. Defense

Aggression and Defense are not politically indistinguishable.  Aggression is an act of Slavery, while Defense is an act of Freedom (the prevention of Slavery).

 

3-2  Defense Properties

Defense is distinguished from Aggression by its constrained character (as well as its purpose).

 

3-3  Defensive Institutions

Defensive institutions are the political technology that will make Freedom possible, and will resemble the Defensive efforts of Coercion+Defense government (minus its Coercive efforts).

 

 

4-0  REAL LAW

Real Law is the basis of Freedom, just as made-up law is the basis of Slavery.

 

4-1  Decree vs. Real Law

Unlike Real Law, human-invented law is arbitrary and inherently Coercive.  It has no fixed meaning, and can't be used to reliably protect the People from Barristocrats.

 

4-2  Real Law Discovery

Though Science hasn't been much help at describing the Laws pertaining to human Politics, we can gain insight from other sources, including some of the principles that have found their way into human-invented law.

 

4-3  Justice

Real Justice depends on accuracy, whereas the legalism of human-invented law has become a substitute for its stated goal.

 

4-4  Punishment

Defense has nothing to do with Vengeance or tit-for-tat Retaliatory Aggression.  Neither would it allow Society to be repeatedly victimized by known predators.

 

 

5-0  POWER RETENTION

The Power Retention upon which Freedom depends can only happen with the support of special institutions.

 

5-1  Egalitarian Institutions

Egalitarian Institutions wouldn't incorporate any of the techniques of Coercion—including Elitism, Democracy, Monopolism, or the secrecy necessary for Fraud.  They would promote self-control while effectively Defending against those who lack it.

 

5-2  Sovereignty

Sovereignty delegated is Sovereignty lost, and Personal Sovereignty precludes representative government (Power Accumulation) and taxation (Coercive public funding).

 

5-3  Citizenship

The status of Free Citizen wouldn't be automatic, but earned based on a track record of adequate self-control and public participation in the institutions of Freedom.

 

5-4  Civil Defense

It is the responsibility and duty of all Citizens to contribute appropriately to their collective Defense, including the militia, public safety and other Defensive institutions.

 

5-5  Political Censorship

The only way to prevent Political Fraud is to prevent Political Censorship, and Free Citizens would retain the power to act as their own censors.

 

5-6  Capitalism

Unlike Marxism, Capitalism is compatible with both Slavery and Freedom, and needs to be regulated by a well-informed and discriminating public rather than immense government bureaucracy.

 

 

6-0  CONCLUSION

The Success of humankind depends on Freedom, and Freedom depends on understanding what it is and implementing the political technology it requires.

 

6-1  An Alliance Of The Meek

Effective cooperation among the Politically Humble will be necessary to hold the Politically Arrogant in check.

 

 

 

 

Appendix 2:  Outline (Key Points)

 

 

1-0  INTRODUCTION

 

1-1  Reality Check

Human Project is currently headed in the direction of Slavery
politics not as unimportant as many people believe
Slavery thrives on helplessness & ignorance
Freedom is inseparably linked to Truth
3-tiered Reality Model explained
"junk" disciplines are all about the triumph of agenda over Truth
the Truth is not for us to decide, only for us to discover
conformance to Truth determines whether we Succeed or Fail
belief can't affect Reality, therefore Reality must affect belief
Reality isn't dependent on perception, but human behavior is
we can't choose our circumstances, but we can choose our Attitudes
just because we think we know Reality doesn't mean we're right
decisions can be made on bases other than facts, like risk
people will often just believe whatever they choose, even the bleak
so far as we know, Success may require our very best efforts

 

1-2  Success vs. Failure

what is Success?
the Human Cause is our cause & our responsibility
Collective Success means Success of the Human Project
Freedom results in hedging our bets, making Success more likely
the Human Project is a team effort, we all Succeed or Fail together
Individual Success means contributing to our Collective Success
contribution lives, gratification dies
Tyrants are not only Failures, they jeopardize the Human Cause itself
[illus] aids to Success vs. aids to Failure
Freedom is pro-merit, Slavery is anti-merit
Persuasion rewards rightness, Coercion rewards wrongness
Competition rewards Winners, Monopoly rewards Losers
individual responsibility motivates, group "responsibility" de-motivates
Good Judgment necessary for effective self-control (Freedom)
Reason can be a potent tool in the creation of Freedom
History is a chance to learn from others' mistakes
[illus] 4 quotations: Pericles, Franklin, Henry, Lord Acton
we can harness human nature, or allow it to harness us

 

1-3  Science vs. Religion

Science & Religion are complementary paths to the Truth
Science based on skepticism, Religion based on faith (speculation)
skepticism & speculation could be leveraged by educated guesswork
Science has offered little help in the area of Politics
proponents of Science often disregard human fallibility
our understanding is a work forever in progress
Politics must be based upon Truth insofar as we can grasp it
"separation of church and state" an impossibility, and undesirable
Theocracies are bleak & agenda-based junk religion is dangerous
Real Religion offers otherwise-unavailable leverage on Truth
commonality among Real Religions is a good sign
human interaction better-studied in Religion than Science thus far
Theocrats go where angels decline to tread
"Dr. Frankenstein" syndrome
to discount human fallibility is to increase its danger
hubris is Politically disastrous
open-minded people occasionally change their minds
open-mindedness supports Truth & therefore Freedom

 

1-4  Socialism vs. Individualism

Socialism ignores Individuals, Individualism ignores Society
Individuals are real, Society is an abstraction
Joe Stalin can't speak for Society & doesn't even really want to
Social Individualism means Individuals make choices in a Social context
Freedom & Justice not mutually exclusive, but mutually dependent
Political poverty is the source of all poverty

 

1-5  Democracy

Democracy means 49% of the People get 0% of the say-so
no correlation between popularity & Truth
what's popular doesn't need government, what's unpopular does
Democracy better than its appalling alternatives, but so what?
periodic elections give us a chance to throw the "bums" out
Democracies less likely to commit Military Aggression
Democracy can produce whatever's sufficiently popular (even Freedom)

 

 

2-0  FREEDOM

 

2-1  Freedom vs. Slavery

DPRK is an undemocratic Dictatorship that starves its People
words can't impact Truth but can & do impact human behavior
Honesty is fair characterization, Dishonesty is mischaracterization
perfect Honesty impossible, but material Honesty should be expected
Political bait-and-switch a common technique
[illus] formal definition of Freedom
beware the legalistic word-parsers whose aim is to corrupt the record
[illus] synonyms for Freedom & Slavery
Coercion won't be absent unless it's prevented
[illus] Freedom Pledge
"outbound" Coercion addressed by pro-Freedom indoctrination
Coercion is a discouragement to merit
contribution lives, gratification dies
Coercion is an Excellence-killer
"inbound" Coercion addressed by Defense
"pacifism" can be a disguise for cowardice or Treason
procrastination on unavoidable Conflict doesn't minimize suffering
Slavery is "murder in slow motion"
Real Peace isn't achieved through Oppression
without Aggression, Defense never has to occur
Defense produces (less tragic) Deterrence as a side-effect
best way to Deter Aggressors is to be ready to Fight & win
Overt Coercion is force & intimidation, Covert Coercion is fraud
interpersonal Coercion bad, organized Political Coercion worse
U.S. may be Freer or Freest country, but isn't Free
elimination of Coercion has never been any Society's goal
Slavery/Freedom Continuum explained
Western Civilization has pursued Freedom erratically
what's the "right" amount of Slavery to endure?
[illus] The 3 Fundamental Political States
Defensive Institutions much harder to create than Coercive ones
Slavery more appealing than Anarchy but not Politically Better
is institutionalized slavery the only form of Slavery?
Freedom is self-ownership, Slavery is ownership by others
confusion surrounding Slavery & Racism exploited by Marxists
Racism & Oppression have been adopted rather than rejected
putting The Plantation under new management doesn't cure Slavery

 

2-2  Persuasion vs. Coercion

Freedom requires identifying who's entitled to what
Freedom & Tolerance are 2 aspects of the same thing
Coercion can't be Tolerated in an otherwise-Tolerant Free Society
self-determination in a multilateral context means mutual consent
Marxian gunpoint "compassion" is Robbery (Slavery)
Coercion becomes a first resort rather than last resort
"one size fits all" approach inevitable under Coercion
Marxian "diversity" isn't as constructive as Real Diversity
illegitimate expectations make a lousy basis for compromise
agreement is sometimes mandatory, usually not
Dissent & Pluralism ought to be embraced as positive
Persuasion can be vigorous, but can't resort to force or harassment
Persuasion will take "no" for an answer, Coercion won't
government never takes "no" for an answer

 

2-3  Power Accumulation

"Liberty! Equality! Fraternity!" is Freedom's Trinity
Freedom means doing as you please about your own business
no such thing as the "freedom" to Push People Around
self-ownership in a social context means retaining individual consent
Real Egalitarianism means Political Equality
Power Accumulation is a Politically hostile act (Usurpation)
[illus] the Conservation of Political Power
Power Accumulation is Power Theft
Slavery's about Power Accumulation, Freedom's about Power Retention
is "willing" Slavery an option?
[illus] the Inseparability of Authority and Responsibility
money is Power, disproportionate wealth means disproportionate Power
"How much better can you eat?"
the Aristocratic fantasy is about owning people as well as things
virtual reality might offer warped human nature a safe outlet
millionaires are proportionately wealthy, billionaires aren't
Freedom requires Political Humility, Slavery is Political Arrogance
honest employment is not Slavery
Marxian class-warfare scam simply a Power Accumulation tactic
the Meek can counter "might makes right" with collective might

 

2-4  Limited Slavery

American Constitution was genuinely Liberal & Progressive
[illus] The Declaration of Independence
Framers gave Defensive task to Coercive Institution (government)
creating Freedom is a "bootstrap operation"
Framers could do no better than Limited Slavery
"A republic, if you can keep it."
Limited Slavery has been confused for an end in itself
no "right" amount of Slavery other than none at all
Sovereignty Delegation begets Political Laziness & Dependence
Power Accumulators & government mutually-supportive
Limited Slavery a potential step toward Freedom, but unstable
Constitutional protection of Political Minorities has a Catch-22
government needn't fear punishment for violating Constitution
human-invented law has no fixed meaning
Political Minorities' only real protection is Majority Enlightenment

 

2-5  Marxism

a Free Society is Egalitarian, Elitism is Oppressive
[illus] Aristocratic rationale
Aristocrats aren't "better" than we are, just delusional
Marxism has unleashed the awesome political power of lip service
hereditary Aristocracy has been replaced by self-appointed Aristocracy
Freedom & Justice not mutually exclusive, but mutually dependent
Aristocratic Marxists hate the Egalitarian middle class
Marxists aim to exploit the poor
confiscatory taxation hurts the middle class (& poor), not the wealthy
Marxists are Aristocratic pseudo-populists
Marxists have embraced Racism as a political tactic
Real Liberals would be Libertarians, not Marxists
Marxism is Regressive, not Progressive
Marxism is synonymous with Slavery
Marxist Thugs are con-artists, Marxist Dupes are true believers
Marxism (based on Thuggery) is unusable for Social Justice
Persuasion is advantageous to the good guys, Coercion disadvantageous
Marxism is counterproductive to Environmentalism
our problems stem from lack of Understanding, not lack of Slavery
the Political Struggle has been reduced to Marxism vs. Freedom
Marxist Thugs are badly-motivated, Marxist Dupes are well-motivated
Coercion is too corrupt to be suitable to the creation of Justice
Defensive institutions are the real antidote to coercive Injustice
Power Accumulators aren't Robin Hood, but competing Exploiters
neutrality isn't an option in the struggle between Slavery & Freedom

 

 

3-0  DEFENSE

 

3-1  Aggression vs. Defense

Aggression & Defense aren't Politically indistinguishable
Defense is constrained in a way that Aggression isn't
anger is not a license to kill & it's never "okay" to hurt people
Defense recognizes that a bad outcome may be the best one available
refusing to choose a bad option might mean accepting a worse one
purpose of Aggression is Slavery, purpose of Defense to prevent it
Defense can require violence in extreme circumstances
Real Peace isn't Surrender, but the absence of Aggression
Aggressors are encouraged by weakness & discouraged by strength
Slavery is murder in slow motion
if the Human Project matters, then thwarting Evil is a good thing

 

3-2  Defense Properties

the goal of Defense is a net reduction in human tragedy
[illus] characteristics of Defense
a disproportionate response to Aggression is just more Aggression
there's no such thing as retroactive Defense
Defense is imbued with Forbearance, whereas Aggression lacks any
mindless procrastination is no substitute for thoughtful restraint
Defense is about the preservation of Rights, not usurpation of Power
Israeli destruction of Osiraq reactor a textbook example of Defense
Retribution is Aggression, but Preemption is Defense
a superficial resemblance to Vengeance doesn't disqualify Defense
Vengeance is pathological, Defense is anti-pathological (therapeutic!)
putting Abusers out of business is the highest form of revenge
Abusers identify themselves by their own behavior
Freedom means distinguishing the well-behaved from the badly-behaved
a violent response to a non-violent provocation isn't Defense
Defenders don't owe wannabe Aggressors any 1st-strike advantage
Force is a disproportionate response to intangible "offenses"
Coercion is anti-merit, Persuasion is pro-merit
Defense is the key to Freedom, and requires good judgment

 

3-3  Defensive Institutions

Defense must thwart external control & promote self-control
Slavery advanced by exploiting the public's fear of Anarchy
prohibition's ineffectiveness is used to argue for more of the same
Defensive institutions must (1) be effective, (2) avoid mission creep
denial of reality by non-Marxians has benefited Marxism
career criminals represent a failure to Defend
Defensive institutions would resemble government is some cases
Coercion in law enforcement can be blamed on law, not its enforcement
"To protect and to serve" doesn't require or allow Coercion
the military would be Defensive if not for politicians
a monolithic approach to Defense isn't necessary or even desirable
Coercion+Defense government doesn't Defend us well from itself
Limited Slavery offers a temporary window of opportunity for Freedom
government presents an irresistible temptation to Power Accumulators
"boiling the frog" strategy is being used to create the Total State
Coercion+Defense government is not a "necessary evil"
people who can behave themselves have a Right to govern themselves
Freedom capitalizes on our potential, Slavery thwarts it
Defensive institutions are the political technology behind Freedom

 

 

4-0  REAL LAW

 

4-1  Decree vs. Real Law

an obsession with "order" is inherently anti-Libertarian
the "rule of law" is actually the rule of lawyers (an oligarchy)
The Universe already has Rules that can't be changed by legislation
everything, including human interaction, is governed by Real Law
[illus] Decree vs. Real Law
the purpose of Decree is to Push People Around
Decree is arbitrary (whimsical)
Decree is unintelligible by design (intending Power Accumulation)
the People can't defend what they cannot comprehend
Decree's meaning isn't fixed & can be completely reversed by judges
Decree (Power Accumulation) incompatible w/ Freedom
a Barristocracy doesn't even qualify as Democracy, much less Freedom
Barristocrats can torture either the spirit or the letter of the law
2nd Amendment unambiguous: militia depends on the Right to bear Arms
U.S. v. Miller court intentionally reversed the sense of 2nd Amendment
Barristocrats are unreliable defenders of the People's Rights
Decree is human-invented, Real Law can only be discovered
a Free Society is obliged to be Reality-based, a Barristocracy isn't
Real Law is Legitimate, Decree's "legitimacy" is dubious
government is hypocritical
don't try this [Civil Disobedience] at home!

 

4-2  Real Law Discovery

ignorance of human-invented law is unavoidable
ignorance of Real Law is inadvisable
made-up law can reflect Real Law, but isn't limited to that
Real Legitimacy can only come from Real Law
Science hasn't been much help at determining Real (Political) Law
"distributed processing" corresponds to self-determination
human nature naturally resents Tyranny
Coercion & Monopoly are Excellence-killers
all Real Crimes amount to Power Theft
self-ownership must be tolerated, ownership by others mustn't
prohibition is a great way to grow organized crime & government
criminalizing drugs isn't a proportionate (Defensive) response
Oppression isn't the answer to wayward Liberty, Defense is
Real Law would encompass all Reality-based "decree"
Real Law would be Defensive & not unnecessarily arbitrary
Real Law would be understandable to citizens of average education

 

4-3  Justice

coerced jury service is a clear sign that something's gone wrong
the purpose of a captive audience is to be abused
legalism will & has become divorced from Justice
"justice" rendered under made-up law is intentionally unverifiable
adversarial trials are all about winning, not Justice
Free Society's pursuit of Justice wouldn't be Coercive or Monopolistic
Justice is absolutely dependent on accuracy
a Free Society wouldn't settle for impotence against predators
procedure shouldn't become a substitute for the original goal
our ability to achieve Justice is necessarily limited
Vengeance has no place in a Free Society
a system that overrewards lawyers will have lots of them
Defense is all about prevention, not retribution
capital punishment is only proportionate if no better option exists
paying a hypothetical "debt to society" doesn't solve the real problem
hypothetical "guilt" doesn't necessarily reflect the danger to Society
remedial action should supply what's missing in self-identified felons
jails wouldn't be coercively financed in a Free Society
felons could earn their keep by contributing to criminal science
the best justice system is the most accurate, not the most complex
protecting Society from both predators & gov't is entirely possible

 

4-4  Punishment

ferocious competence at self-defense would make jails unnecessary
we can lock up the good guys or the bad guys
a Barristocracy can use law to create "criminals" where none exist
"well-behaved" has different meanings under Statism & Freedom
for Statists, government equals good guys & civilians equal bad guys
Criminal gov't is vastly more dangerous than Criminal individuals
in Freedom, Aggressors equal bad guys & Defenders equal good guys
[illus] 4 levels of scrutiny based on an individual's track record
ordinary fallibility is different from inadequate self-control
early intervention might be a way to deal with at-risk individuals
banishment & execution are somewhat impractical
reward/punishment under made-up law ignores basic psychology
jails are misused as a way to punish "disapproved" self-ownership
proportionate sanctions would be the least draconian & most effective
remedial action should supply what's missing in self-identified felons
certain (& painful) failure deters better than uncertain punishment

 

 

5-0  POWER RETENTION

 

5-1  Egalitarian Institutions

Power Retention institutions wouldn't attract Power Accumulators
teamwork: 20-mule team ... "Baboon Model" ... "Captain Picard Model"
Coercion is the polar opposite of Leadership
Coercion must be more covert in the "private sector"
Egalitarian institutions wouldn't have any bosses
Egalitarian institutions wouldn't be democratic
Egalitarian institutions wouldn't be secretive or Monopolistic
transition from Barristocracy to Freedom requires much Political R&D
Coercion must be phased out as (pure) Defense is phased in
U.S. Constitution was an able attempt at harnessing made-up law
2nd Amendment addresses Force, 1st Amendment addresses Fraud
Decree is too dependent on "is is" lawyers to provide reliable Defense
lax immigration control is incompatible with a Free Society
advanced military technology has made Isolationism unworkable
self-control (like external control) needs institutional support
moral relativism is a deliberate attack on Freedom (self-control)
basis of Morality is Successful (vs. Unsuccessful) behavior
Freedom requires self-control, which requires Virtue & willpower
Morality can neither be dictated nor absent in a Free Society
Freedom is not for the lazy, gullible, timid, or corrupt
Freedom is a do-it-yourself proposition

 

5-2  Sovereignty

purpose of global government is to prevent Freedom anywhere
Real Sovereignty is Personal Sovereignty
Slaveowners include sadists, Exploiters, chauvinists, grandeur-deluded
Slave wannabes include lazy, fearful, distracted
to delegate Sovereignty is to lose it
delegating Freedom's costs contributes to underestimating its value
representation, government & made-up law are all Power Accumulation
the People themselves must decide what is Intolerable
majority won't reliably defend Freedom, but some minority will
Direct Democracy w/ high threshold is a Power Retentive approach
Defensive institutions would be constrained by election results
proper threshold is the difference between Slavery, Freedom & Anarchy
in the U.S., Freedom probably peaked shortly after the Civil War
Democracy only equates to Freedom if majority votes against Coercion
judges have discovered there's no penalty for re-making law
the income tax was and is a divide-and-conquer political scam
no moral or political difference between "robbery" & "taxation"
government, lawyers & robbers all follow the same M.O.
everything that can be taxed has been taxed
the taxation of productivity (income) isn't "progressive"
the fairness of discriminatory taxation is completely unverifiable
taxation weakens citizenry & strengthens its Oppressor (government)
coercive financing of coercive programs a political double-whammy
Robbery is an act of Political Inequality (Slavery)
"representation" has no relationship to any individual's taxation
persuasive programs would receive voluntary support
Tax Freedom Day illustrates the erosion of Liberty in the U.S.

 

5-3  Citizenship

universal Freedom & Egalitarianism are unachievable
Political Equality is only suitable to individuals with self-control
Society subdivided into: (1) Free, (2) Disqualified, (3) Uninterested
most individuals have the capacity for Freedom
Citizenship in a Free Society based on individual's performance
a Free Society wouldn't tolerate deadbeats or coercive public funding
Power Retention means having the broadest possible franchise
a Free Society must embrace both privacy & record-keeping
"group identity politics" approach doesn't reflect Reality
Defense requires treating people as individuals, Coercion needn't care
Defense depends on accurately identifying those who lack self-control

 

5-4  Civil Defense

theoretical Freedom is short-lived w/o the might to back it up
to reject Defense is to choose Slavery
Statists hate & fear civilian Arms
Statists want to ban civilian guns but not more-dangerous cars
anyone who can't be trusted with a weapon shouldn't run around loose
civilian disarmament is about enforced military disadvantage
the Right to self-preservation is the lynchpin of all Rights
Barristocrats constantly confirm their real opinion of Liberty
for Statists, the Arrogant can be trusted but the Meek cannot
gov't vs. citizenry not synonymous with "good guys" vs. "bad guys"
Power Accumulation institutions attract Power Accumulators
government monopolization of arms is a Power Accumulation approach
Civil Defense, like Sovereignty, is unsuitable to delegation
every member of a Free Society must contribute to its Defense
there's a difference between political dissent & Treason
Egalitarianism is unsuited to the military
peace officers are squeezed between the citizenry & government
Statists have conducted a smear campaign against vigilantism
Justice has nothing to do with government or Coercion
citizens who can defend themselves & others should do so
Tyrants held in check by public outrage & the means to act upon it

 

5-5  Political Censorship

junk debate relies on misdirection, cooked facts & bad logic
institutions supporting Real Debate are underdeveloped
Honesty matters because Truth matters
material honesty doesn't require human perfection
Political Dishonesty a disqualification for positions of Public Trust
Force & Fraud go together (lies are cheaper than bullets)
Dishonesty undermines Trust & engenders Cynicism
liars insult our intelligence
a Free Society wouldn't tolerate any Political Censorship
Political Censorship is an aid rather than an obstacle to Genocide
"truth referees" are a Power Accumulation approach
only lies need the help of Censors, the Truth doesn't
inappropriate speech should accrue to the reputations of its speakers
Censoring speech isn't a proportionate (Defensive) response
individual boycotts are an exercise in Power Retention
organized boycotts are an attempt at Power Accumulation
Marxists pay lip service to, but actually oppose Free Speech
censorship would be the prerogative of the Individual in a Free Society
the Bill of Rights isn't about pornography or "duck hunting"
the 1st Amendment doesn't protect us from the private sector
Free Speech depends on (expensive) mass communications technology
Corrupt Media Bloc is a pro-Marxian political censorship cartel
Big Government + Big Media = Big Brother
Free Speech depends on competition & Power Retention
Free Speech is vulnerable to Monopolism, regulation, taxation
Censorship supports Political Fraud (covert Coercion, or Slavery)

 

5-6  Capitalism

Capitalism gains unrivaled potency from human greed
Capitalism is amenable to Slavery or Freedom
ignorance impedes the proper function of free markets
there's nothing Socially Unjust about business-for-profit
corporate culture has embraced Aristocracy to an unhealthy degree
competition is pro-business, anti-competition is anti-business
Monopolism is about pathological greed, not "healthy competition"
ruthlessness is vastly overrated as a contributor to Success
Transparency is a much better check on Capitalism than Statism is
denial of Capitalist excess has backfired in favor of Statism
what do we expect the alternative to self-policing to be?
Globalism is a not-so-secret Aristocrat conspiracy

 

 

6-0  CONCLUSION

 

6-1  An Alliance Of The Meek

we're no longer slaves to survival, and can find other work
owning Slaves requires extra wisdom, but Slaveowners have a deficit
the Meek have done all the work, Tyrants have taken all the credit
human-invented law in itself creates only Barristocracy
a Free Society isn't Ruled by anyone, only Defended
Slavery—the Excellence-killer—poses a grave risk to Human Cause
"Santa Claus" government can't give you your Freedom
what is the real relationship between Coercion & good works?
can we achieve a goal like Freedom by adopting the methods of Slavery?
[illus] the methods of Slavery vs. Freedom
Freedom can't be created out of the chaos of Revolution
the best result Revolution ever produced was Limited Slavery
Limited Slavery is the necessary launching pad for Freedom
Limited Slavery is a window of opportunity, not an end in itself
Freedom requires shrinking government while growing Defense
Slavery is very seductive to the lazy & fearful
Limited Slavery is superior to Slavery, but inferior to Freedom
government can't be permanently harnessed, but perhaps temporarily
Democracy tends toward Slavery, but can be bent in Freedom's direction
human-invented law can be used to create "Barristocrat-free zones"
Marxists can't afford a non-Marxian U.S. which embarrasses Marxism
Aristocrats are strategically disadvantaged by their minority status
an evenly-divided electorate presents Libertarians with an opportunity
Libertarians must unite in a way that promotes Power Retention
Freedom means giving up Pushing People Around, for self-ownership
grandeur-deluded Aristocrats believe they're natural Slaveowners
the Meek are capable of the work & sacrifice that Freedom requires
this is a sketch, not a blueprint
you must participate, Sovereignty delegated is Sovereignty lost
step 1: understand Freedom, [illus] Freedom Pop Quiz
step 2: join or create Power Retention institutions
Freedom requires an Alliance of the Meek, not a reliance on the Elite
unless we're waiting on the Klingons, it's time to get started
