True News 59: Statism on Fire! Freedomain Radio A parable, some facts, and some indignant spittle. Sources:
Anti-statism VS Minarchism/Nationalism You say that you have a problem with my ***ogy that "Advocating statism is similar to advocating slavery on the off chance the slave master will do what you want. You say, "political positions are supposed to be about the ideal, so it doesn't make sense to only advocate something if the promised result is guaranteed." I think you're missing my point, your position is invalid because from a practical position it gets you nowhere, it doesn't fail simply because it's not guaranteed to work. I maintain that it is very comparable to advocating slavery on the off chance that you might find yourself in the position of power. Now assuming the metaphor is valid, surely you can see how advocating slavery doesn't necessarily help you to achieve a particular political goal (this is assuming you don't know who will end up being a slave). You say the citizen agrees with the state on certain things and so the metaphor fails. Well, the slave will always agree with the slave master on certain things. For example the slave will always agree that the slave should be kept fed, rested, and generally in good health. But both relationships are forced, and so they inherently contain conditions that both parties would NOT agree to voluntarily. That is the common ground that this metaphor is trying to express. The fact that there is "not one person controls the state" is irrelevant to the point I am making. You say "we all have some control over the state", and so to compare it to slavery is ...

Cost of Private Schools: CATO says: www.cato-at- - Some people may not like me citing CATO, but their numbers were actually not that far off of other ***yses. Private Police in Kalamazoo: "Private police typically focus on loss instead of crime; preventive methods rather than punishment; private justice (such as firing embezzlers or issuing no trespassing warnings to shoplifters) rather than public court proceedings; and private property rather than public property" - Sort of private. They were funded by taxes, but assuming the funding hurdle can be overcome in a manner similar to fire services, we already have a little example in place.

Rejecting the Religion of Statism I explain my motives for not going along quietly with a simple citation and simply paying the fine. Statism is a religion that I simply do not practice. I obey because I'm under threat of violence to accept the tenants of a religion, the beliefs of which I simply do not share. I have no faith in this man-made religion known as Statism.

Egypt: Starvation, Revolution and the Price of Statism The unreported facts about the riots in Egypt, and a way forward for the Egyptian people. From Freedomain Radio, Sources Text: Egypt: The Price of Statism 6000 years ago, Egypt was the first state. 6000 years is a long time to try a social experiment out -- how's it going? Well, after 6000 years of state rule, more than 40% of Egyptians live on $2 a day. A tyrant has ruled for over three decades. Protesters and activists are arrested and imprisoned at will. 70% of the population dependents on food subsidies and handouts from their political masters. The Egyptian government spends $2.74 billion a year on bread subsidies alone. The government spends more on subsidies -- including gasoline -- than on health and education. This breeds ever-increasing political corruption and favoritism, endless dependence on state handouts, and destroys Egyptian agriculture, because it's impossible to compete with almost free food. The Egyptian government depends on $1.5 billion of stolen US taxpayer money every year. Why are the riots happening now? Well, the food price index has jumped 32% in the second half of 2010, and Egypt is the world's largest wheat importer, reliant on countries like Russia and Pakistan for its food supply. The Russian and Indian governments have both recently banned grain exports, cutting off Egypt, among others. Egyptian agriculture has tried to make up the difference, increasing its output by over 20% recently, but it's not ...

State of the Statists Notice how the Neo-Cons have updated their language to sound more Libertarian, while perpetuating fallacious statist justifications for government. Paul Ryan says "Individual Liberty requires limited-government". Yet the Federal Government under direction of both Democrats and Republicans has systematically eroded individual liberty since its inception. America began with the smallest, most limited government in the history of nation-states, and it has become the largest, most powerful and corrupt empire in the world. Individual liberty requires self government, and totally undermines the state's power monopoly. Blog with us: Subscribe to Stefan Molyneux's channel, Freedomain Radio http

Most view it as an intriguing hypothesis, but just that, an unfalsifiable hypothesis. HOWEVER, what Jaynes' work does show is that 'ancient man' was bat*** crazy and hallucinated quite regularly. That is all that I need, because all I'm interested in is showing that states formed primarily from ideology, the first states being the outgrowth of cults.

Man is pulled over by police for displaying an Anti-Obama sign The police officers who stopped Oklahoma City motorist Chip Harrison and confiscated a sign from his car told him he has a right to his beliefs, but the Secret Service "could construe this as a threat against President Obama," according to the incident report released this morning. 'The Secret Service called and said they were at my house," Harrison said. After talking to his attorney, Harrison went home where he met the Secret Service. ''When I was on my way there, the Secret Service called me and said they weren't going to ransack my house or anything ... they just wanted to (walk through the house) and make sure I wasn't a part of any hate groups." Harrison said he invited the Secret Service agents into the house and they were "very cordial." ''We walked through the house and my wife and 2-year-old were in the house," Harrison said. He said they interviewed him for about 30 minutes and then left, not finding any evidence Harrison was a threat to the president. ''I'm still in contact with a lawyer right now," Harrison said. "I don't know what I'm going to do." Harrison said he feels his First Amendment rights were violated.
Obama wants to destroy our healthcare: Mark Levin on Hannity Mark Levin appeared on Hannity post President Barack Obama's press conference. Levin thought Obama was "painful, incoherent" and "thin on knowledge and substance". He said that Obama wants to destroy our healthcare system. Mark said that Obama talked about expanding coverage and reducing costs, but he believes Obama will reduce coverage and expand costs. He said selling the idea of more healthcare for less money sounds like snakeoil to him.
