Boy, I have
a lot to say today. Ten or twenty years ago there'd be just
one or two stupid things to comment upon every month or two... like
the war on drugs or whatnot. Today? I see 10 or 15 things
per day that almost make my blood boil. It's a good thing
I live in a relatively free place on the beach surrounded by beautiful,
smiling, dancing women and good food and good times or I'd get stressed
If you don't
have a snifter of scotch at the ready or a nice glass of wine...
or whatever drink you prefer, I advise you to grab one now. You're
going to need it by the time I am done.
Why are people
so scared of the thought that something we want/need is privately
owned and not collectively organized?
your average American, they would nod approvingly as you state that
the Soviet Union and anything centrally planned
doesn't work. We've got enough evidence now. If I lived
a hundred years ago I could have seen myself backing socialism and
communism. From each according to his ability, to each according
to his need. How beautiful! Those of us who can produce
more can give more to those who cannot. Not a person will
starve. Not a person will suffer. It is a truly beautiful
idea. And, as it turns out, that is why it is so dangerous.
Courtois has estimated that 100 million people have been killed
at the hand of the communist sickle. And Vladimir Lenin stated
"The goal of socialism is communism". So on what grounds does
someone like Barry Obombya have to stand on when he states that
we need to spread the wealth?
Why are people
so devoted to the idea that the Soviet Union, or Communist China,
and their centrally planned and enforced systems are wrong but that
we need "certain" things, like the money system, or policing, or
courts, or roads, or schools to be centralized?
crossed my mind today as we drove down the sidewalk in southern
Mexico on my scooter. I was pretty drunk and a public policeman
give us the stink eye. I gave him it back double. My
expression said "you are worse than a petty thief because at least
a petty thief is honest about their intentions!"
we passed by the AcaCondos
building, and the private security guards who work there all high-fived
me and patted me on the back.
of private security guard brutality? No, you probably haven't.
If a private security guard ever beat or killed someone who didn't
deserve it they would be immediately fired and be working at the
neighborhood Gap or as a janitor. When the police are centralized
and have no profit motive? They will tase, pepper spray, beat
and murder you. If you haven't figured that out, wake the
f**k up. Seriously.
DO WHAT IS IN YOUR OWN BEST INTEREST!
I abhor the
Olympics. It embodies everything that is wrong in the world
today. The Olympics is the embodiment of the concept of one
world government... and that is going in the wrong direction. We
need more governments not less.
achievements? That's great! But how is one man or woman
who was born 20 miles away from another on the other side of an
arbitrary line devised by murderers and thieves on a different team
than the other?
But when I
saw the headline that eight Olympic badminton players were kicked
out of the Olympics for "trying
to lose" it piqued my interest. Had some people gone against
human nature and intentionally tried to lose?
review... something which seems beyond the capabilities of most
people today had happened... I looked into it a little bit further.
the story, "The crowd booed as the badminton players dumped shots
into the net, trying to improve their positioning for the next round.
The umpire and tournament referee Torsten Berg issued warnings,
imploring them to exert maximum effort."
wow... I've never heard of people ever.... ever... trying
to lose at anything. Maybe they are a new
mutation of humans who don't have their own self interest in mind.
the federation for having taken swift and decisive action," IOC
spokesman Mark Adams told The Associated Press. "Such behavior is
incompatible with the Olympic values."
Wow, I said
again. People going to the Olympics and trying to lose! Good
job, Mark Adams, for kicking them out before this catches on and
everyone tries to lose!
And then I
decided to do what most don't bother doing. I looked beyond the
headlines and the quotes.
As it turns
out, the system was set up so that those who
lost in the earlier rounds would have the advantage in the later
rounds. Only a fool would try to win their first games in
that situation. The system was set-up, like socialism, where
the weak win.... in the early stages. And the response from
the horrific, despicable, Satanic Olympics? How dare they
try to win by losing under our stupid set-up!
This is exactly
how all of statist society is set-up. Force people to adhere
to unnatural, non free-market incentives, and then when they do
it, kidnap or kill them. That's statism. That's the drug war. Make
it illegal to provide people with what they want and then drag them
away in the middle of the night.
You know what
is the best system for humans who are all completely self-interested
to adhere to? Anarchy. The free market, unfettered.
Or do you think central planning is the better option? Then,
let's start jailing millions of badminton players.
HIDE! AND, AS THE LAST RESORT, FIGHT!
must see the video above. I thought it must have been from
SNL when it was sent to me. But, no, it was paid for by your
tax dollars if you live in the United State! The message?
Occasionally... yes, from time to time... a disgrunteld American,
probably who lost his job due to the regulations of the US Government
and the destructive Federal Reserve may come by and shoot up your
area of work.
So, as a service
to you, to protect you from this state-caused event, we have stolen
money from you and used it to produce propaganda wherein we advise
you to, first, call the government if a state-caused shooting spree
occurs... which will become commonplace now that things are in high
gear. And, then to advise you to run away like scared slaves
first and foremost. If that doesn't work, hide like little
And, if after
all that, you have no other option as you wait for the government
to come save you, fashion a fire extinguisher or a chair into a
weapon! Never, ever, use a pistol to easily eradicate this
government-caused agent. Ever.
This is the
world Americans live in today.
Until the next
time we talk... remember to run away... citizens of the home of
the brave. And, if that doesn't work, hide! Exactly
the same advice we've been giving here for quite some time. Run
and... if need be, hide. And, as the US Government advises...
fight! But no one does that anymore... and probably shouldn't
anyway. Violence is rarely the answer. Find a way to
live outside of this socialist/communist/fascist/statist system
and be happy.
I wish you
all the best! Live as free as is humanly possible, love your
friends and if your family deserves it, them too.. and everyone
