  • I just read an article about a woman who gave birth at home. She and the father stayed with their child for several days, neither of them working. But on day 6 when they went into the hospital for a check up, they were treated like criminals or idiots. Their child was forcibly taken away, sent to a pediatric center at a different hospital, and tested for a thousand different things. Nothing was wrong. A social worker was trying to prove negligence to have the child sent to foster care! The couple were not allowed to leave until 9:30PM after a whole day of waiting, and were billed over $3,000 for the whole experience. If they had tried to protect their child, they would have been imprisoned and removed from their child longer.   For dire situations like this, I keep envisioning communities and neighborhoods banding together against it. The individual, our divided people fighting each other, is not strong enough to fight back against the gov’t. I imagine services like that privatized Detroit Police, which focuses on non-violent ways of deterring the situation, disarming the threat, etc. Very NAP. I just know if I come into contact with cops it’s going to be a hella bad time for me. I’ve been working out so I can actually be strong enough to learn self-defense without straining something. But it’s not enough. Even the best trained individual will be charged and detained for shooting at a cop in self defense, or something.

  • A new TV show coming out next month called “Colony” shows some promise.  It takes place in Los Angeles in some unknown future.  A large wall envelopes the city, and inside it is a police state.  The story surrounds a man and his family trying to make ends meet.  Society has been split in two:  those who collaborate and those who resist.  Collaborate with who?  They have yet to be revealed, but the evidence provided is some alien race. (I assume, hence the name “Colony”). When one character was asked about the need of the police state, he says, “You have to have some controls, otherwise there would be anarchy.” It shows promise.

  • Incidents of abuse by National Park Police spark outrage, demands for probe http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2557025 If motels issued guns to their maids, I’m sure the maids would handle unapproved late checkouts in the same manner! Oh wait…maybe they wouldn’t. Unlike how people empowered by government treat serfs, the hotels would have to worry about losing their (voluntary) customer base and going out of business!
