  • I caught this sketch the other day from an old episode of A Bit of Fry & Laurie about the privatization of the British police. It’s pretty funny as it contains every fear that statists have about privatizing the police, it even manages to fit in something about private roads.  Watch and laugh or cringe. “Peter, everybody had an chance to buy shares at the time of issue. It was all supervised by a reputable merchant bank… well by a merchant bank anyway. ”

  • For the past few years, police departments have been on something of a power trip in the United States. Only citing the lesser-known instances that come to my mind, cops have assaulted autistic teenagers and murdered unarmed civilians, and were subsequently cleared of all charges and let back on the force. A zealous, dogmatic conservative “fanbase,” alongside a legal system that actively defends police from facing charges of murder, manslaughter, or assault, assures that these men and women never see justice for their actions. It’s awful what police are doing in society, but it’s even worse that they can get off scot-free for it. Of course, most of you already know this. So here’s my question: has any United States representative or senator proposed a bill designed to fight against unjust acquittals or introduce charges that are harder to to be overturned? As an agorist, I’m partially convinced that this has never happened and that anyone who gets elected for public office in this day and age is a vapid authoritarian, but a sliver of hope remains for me somewhere. Have any of you heard of such legislation on a federal level? If not, then what about on a state level?

  • I don’t want to steal ErickR’s thunder because he started the post “Laguage of Liberty”. I started this thread because I also don’t want to sidetrack his thread by focusing on the procedure of language instead of his particular-subject-matter. That said the evidence shows that Libertarians have trouble coordinating efforts for the promotion of Libretarianism. This is a given when one considers that many Libertarians are, by nature, Independant-thinkers. Coordinating independent-thinkers is like trying to herd cats, however even independent-thinkers manage to get together on some things. Take the math problem: 3+3= 6. Are there any Libritarians who don’t “agree” that 3+3= 6? If no one speaks up I would presume that it is because Libritarians “agree” that a standard-set of rules is necessary if one wants to get a true, correct and certain-answer for the math-problem each time one does the same procedure for the same math-problem. I am also going to presume that Libretarians want their pay check calculated with math which is true, correct and certain. Now, for the hard part: Why is it that people accept “rules” for the correct operations of math, but reject rules for the corrct-construction of a sentnece? THIS IS A DO IT YOURSELF TOOL KIT. You have to figure it out for yourself. Facts: Do you have the same piece of evidence as a fact if you modify that evidence? If you went to a crime-scene and pulled a knife out of a victim with your bare hand, have you “modified” the murder-weapon with your finger prints? If you give a “red” barn a coat of white paint is it still a “red” barn? If you charge someone with gross-neglence is it the same as neglence? If you use a pronoun such as he she in place of the actual-name of a witness or victim how does anyone know who you are talking about? When you can answer these questions correctly you will have the beginning of a tool kit for the correct-construction of a sentence.

  • The words we use reflects and affects the way we see the world. The number one collectivist tool is the language of generalization. Try to eliminate “groups” from your language and watch how your perspective changes. For example, I try not to refer to a country as a person. The “USA” cannot act, only the people with power can. So saying the US did this or that is an illusion. But this language is used by so many that the illusion is considered real. Accepting this falsehood leads to all kinds of propaganda and manipulation. How many ways can we alter our language to better reflect the true view that collective generalizations are not realities, but just conceptual aggregates?
