Seeing The Fnords

Normally I would post something like this on my primary blog but I'm to whine, moan, and groan about the taxicab business over there instead. Also I would not use a reference to The Illuminatus Trilogy on a basically Objectivist blog but I just got up and I feel a little bit frisky this morning.

Once upon a time ago, in a bit of a disagreement, I told the editor of the original dead tree version of The Resister that we as real intellectuals didn't actually have to dehumanize the members of The Left. My view at the time was that the partisans of The Left have chosen to dehumanize themselves, and all we actually had to do as real reporters was to observe them, and accurately report we see and hear.

In a case in point our good friend Mark Urbin posted a link to a post on Talk Straight in order to illuminate "the violence inherent in the socialist system."

(Thus also providing us with our daily Monty Python reference requirement for the day as well)

Apparently some self styled intellectual over at that cognitive cesspit commonly known as the Village Voice is openly calling for the murder and plunder of some really rich people. All in the name of the workers, which in what passes for the mind of this individual also includes folks who claim to be artists.

Here's the screen shot of the cognitive emission:

Apparently one hundred and ten million deaths in the cause of an invalid concept is simply not enough for some people.

As usual a self appointed voice of the toilers feels that wealth, the product of someone's thought and labor, belongs not to the persons who created it, but to some manifestation of the collective as a whole, and then they go into some kind of hissy fit when the people who actually created it are allowed to keep some of it. How dare a government actually act like a government!

When someone has something the self appointed guardians want to grab, they'll simply proclaim that desired object was unearned by the rightful owner, or was otherwise stolen and grab it. And they'll do it over the rightful owner's dead body if they have to.

Given sufficient time and motivation they will, if they are consistently acting in accordance to their own theory, even attack the bums who are begging at the roadside for the loose change in their pockets. After all, they didn't earn that paltry sum of money either.

Mark also points out that when one scratches a self proclaimed liberal one will find the fascist underneath.

Well, yes.

Il Duce, the original Fascist, used to be a leading socialist intellectual and even received fan mail from Lenin.

The fact of the matter is that the ideologies of Socialism, Fascism, et al, are nothing more than an attempt to give the appearance of legitimacy to old school savagery, which is basically the old stone age practice of beating up other people and taking their stuff.

Nowadays, whenever I see a "progressive" sign in on a front lawn or a bumper sticker on a car I think, "murderer."

After all, how else are they going to do it?

Thoughts For Today

A lot of folks are putting up their thoughts for the tenth anniversary of the infamous day.

Here's a couple:

There really isn't much I could add to the chorus of comments and remembrances. But I will say something.

One of the nice things about having one's own blog is that one cannot be banned from posting on for speaking the truth. This has already happened twice to me elsewhere for making factual statements about Islam and those who refuse to see the truth.

My remembrances of those events are here (So Anyway) and here (Another Emergency Backup Posting).

Those who blind themselves to the truth are harming themselves. It would be nice if they were only harming themselves.

Another Emergency Backup Posting

I've just posted this message over at a another forum, in the reasonable expectation that it will be removed I am reposting it here:

You know, I haven't seen this kind of shrieking and outright moral evasion since I suggested (on my own blog) that the advocates of Marxism be made to experience it from the victim's point of view, by one round in the head in the old Soviet style.

My present literary project is a science fiction novel depicting how a planet with a basically Objectivist culture would deal with the military problems facing it. In reference to one former enemy, the in-universe stand-ins for the Dorsai, I will have a character say: "Have you been to Xenophon lately? Nobody lives there. Not even mutants hunting each other for food."

Anyone, such as a Soviet Communist, a National Socialist, or an Islamist, who see me as either livestock to be enslaved, or as a diseased animal to be put down, is a mortal enemy, period. Such persons have surrendered all moral claims to the status of Humanity and all rights, including the right to live. Mr. Cline understands this.

On what grounds can someone claim to be Human when they stand up in defense of Islam, an ideology that denies my right to live as a rational human being and only permits my existence if I submit to the status of livestock?

My answer to those who denounce Ed Cline as inhuman is, no, he is not inhuman, you are.

Either you people need to pull your heads out of your terminal orifices or terminate yourselves.

A Blast From The Past

I was going through some old links in my bookmarks file when I found the following comment I had left on someone else's blog. The blogger in question has unfortunately gone over the other side and thus has won himself a free Lubyanka lobotomy. At some point I would expect the blogger to eventually remove this comment from his blog. Thus I repost it here.

The ideology of Eugenics was in practical effect a rejection of the evolutionary process. (And as some may argue, a rejection of the actual will of God the Creator.)

Instead of allowing human life to develop over time in accordance to a natural process (of as some would argue, the way the Creator wanted it), the Eugenicists would instead assume the role of God in the process and personally direct the development of human life themselves. The Eugenicists would determine who may or may not procreate and pass on their genes to the next generation.

In practical effect the ideology of Eugenics reduced the legal and moral status of ordinary human beings to that of livestock. It was simply another pseudoscientific attempt to justify the recreation of a master-slave society, where in this case the Eugenicists would assume the role of ranchers who would breed human beings as if they were mere cattle.

The ideology of Eugenics was just another attempted excuse for the recreation of tyranny. But as they used to teach us at the Benning School for Boys, the maximum effective range of an excuse is zero.

A Blast From The Past

On the anniversary of the signing (the vote was held two days previously) of the Declaration of Independence I will repost something from November of 2008:

Let's talk about Socialism.

We must understand that Socialism is essentially a Master/Slave ideology. If you pardon me for quoting the First Trustifarian, "from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs." And for the socialists, as with the antebellum slaveholders, the needs of the masters will always be much greater than the needs of the slaves.

The socialist master class, both here in the United States and abroad, basically see themselves being dispossessed of what according to their ideology is rightfully theirs. Control of their slaves and the products of slave labor. What should not be a surprise to us is that the response of the socialist master class and their supporters is in many ways similar to the actions of the antebellum slaveholder class and their supporters.

Those who reject the chains of the Left are subjected to public ridicule and slander by the self-styled intellectuals and subject to physical violence by the goon squad, with the ski-mask replacing the white sheet as the attire of choice.

If you will pardon me for the use of shocking language, to the master class of the Left, we who reject the chains of Socialism are (regardless of our actual race) no better than a bunch of "Uppity Niggers." It should be no surprise to us that they are treating us as such.

If we want to go on the ideological offensive (Or is it the Counter-Offensive?) we should simply point out the fact that the socialist economic structure is based on SLAVE LABOR.

If you will pardon me for repeating this, "from each according to his ability -- to each according to his need." Is the literal description of a slave labor economic system.

It is invariably the full socialist states such as the Soviet Union, the Third Reich, and the various People's Republics of Whatever that build and depend on full-service slave labor camps to create the goods that they need to survive.

It is the socialist parties in the otherwise Capitalist nations of the West that act as if wealth, the product of everyone's thought and labor, belong not to the individual who created it, but to some manifestation of the collective (Der Volk, the World Proletariat, etc.) as a whole, and thus act as if a robbery has occurred when the true creators of wealth are allowed to keep some of it.

(Gosh, wow, I do tend to get a bit long winded sometimes.)

The socialist is for the most part someone who declines to live the essentially rational and productive life that is proper to Man, and instead goes to great lengths (including the total disconnect from reality) to cook up excuses to grab the wealth created by others. As if the goods and services created by others were something naturally found in nature.

Instead of living as rational men, socialists choose instead to exist as less than rational animals.

Perhaps we should start treating them as such.

Let's start by voting them out of office and go on from there.

Blast From The Past

I was going through some old files and found this:

Subj: Enemies of Civil Order.
From: Leslie Bates #105
To : All
Date: Sun, Nov 27, 1994 7:59:17 AM

I found the following item on the talk.politics.guns newsgroup:

> From: Terry Liberty-Parker
>> Date: 18 Nov 94 12:20:07
> The New Enemy
> "Parameters", the journal of the Army War College, has
>published an article by a Maj. Ralph Peters which identifies
>the next "enemy" of the "Politicized" Bill/Hillary Clinton
>military as U.S. Patriots, defined as the "Warrior Class".
>Patriots are described as "Erratic Primitives of Shifting
>Allegiances, Habitated to Violence with no stake in Civil Order".

And I posted the following response:

Civil Order as understood by adherents of the Platonic/Hegelian/Marxist/Nazi collectivist ("progressive," "caring," etc.) philosophical tradition is a social state in which we, the hominid livestock, live as directed by our self appointed masters.

The bipedal cattle who do not obey are visited by the "Guardians"/SS/ATF or other such creatures.

Civil Order in the real world as described by Aristotle and Ayn Rand is the societal condition in which we, the humans, are free to live by our own judgement of the facts of reality for our own purposes, without being put upon by thugs and tyrants.

The enemies of true civil order will always try as Orwell warned us, " make lies sound truthful and murder respectable," as had happened at Waco. When we accept the definitions given by our enemies, we lose. For the Clintons and their collaborators to call us "Erratic Primitives," is nothing less than a Nazi style smear.

In the real world we must define or be defined.

The Clintons and the other self styled "progressives" have tried, through their so called "health reform" and other such actions, to force us into a state of dependency and servitude. To turn the United States of America, the greatest nation on this planet into a vast slave labor camp. These are not the actions of the defenders of "civil order." These are attacks on civilization and Mankind as such.

We must see reality for what it is, things for what they are, and people for who they are. We, the defenders of American Civilization, must show our families, friends, and neighbors that we are who we are, and that our enemies are what they are.

Socialism is slavery and socialists are slavers. And as far as I am concerned, all slavers, regardless of what auditory garbage they put forth as an excuse, are enemies of Mankind fit only for extermination.

Quote of the Day

Everything I need to know about unions, I learned during the 1983 copper miners’ strike in Arizona, when a 3-year-old girl was shot in the head while lying in bed with her teddy bear. All because her father was a strikebreaker.

-- John Skookum

I'm not a Christian, but I do believe that those who live by the sword, should as Christ says, die by the sword.

I believe that those who benefit from the exercise of coercive force should be put down by force.

Remember Waco

Once again we come to an anniversary.

Eighteen years ago an agency of the Federal Government carried out an act of state terror.

In plain view of the very compliant mainstream media the so-called Hostage Rescue Team carried out a deliberate lethal force assault on the residence of the Branch Davidians outside of Waco, Texas.

Having left the task of sorting out the innocent and helpless women and children to God, the HRT executed an assault plan that would effectively wipe the Branch Davidians off the face of the Earth. The few adults who did survive were subsequently prosecuted and imprisoned by the Federal judicial apparatus as directed by attorney general Janet Reno.

The deliberate massacre of the Branch Davidians served as a demonstration of what the Marxist leadership of the Democratic Party was willing to do to those who opposed it.

To this day the "intellectual" partisans of the Democratic Party continue to deny responsibility for the deliberate act of mass murder perpetrated by their own leadership. Much as the fellow travellers of the Communist movement denied the crimes of the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

One such person writing in a forum on the Huffington Post, an intellectual cesspit akin to the propaganda agencies of the former Soviet State, having read a previous posting on this subject on this site, declared the author of the post to be "doofus" and that the Branch Davidians were solely responsible for their own destruction.

The fact that a Federal agency initiated the sequence of events. And the fact that the HRT declined to carry out the type of rescue operation, for which they were allegedly established and trained to carry out, in favor of a total lethal force action, were simply blanked out of the alleged mind of the commenter.

The Democratic Party continues to treat this atrocity as a valid act of government and thus continue to act as accessories after the fact to the crime.

I will have more to say concerning the epistemological cause of this pattern of behavior at a future date.

No effort has been made by the subsequent Republican administration to bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice. This constitutes valid grounds for being properly ashamed of being a supporter of the Republican Party.

The following article was electronically published on the LIBERNET Mailing List in 1993. I'm republishing it here for the benefit of those readers who aren't read in as to why I morally condemn the Democratic Party and those who willingly support them.

Two Blasts From The Past

First, President John Quincy Adams on Islam:

“In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adam's capital letters)….Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant…While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”

And something I wrote more recently on the subject of pacifism:

If one were dealing with an honest pacifist then their fundamental error is that he or she treats the state of peace as an absolute value without regard to conditions or consequences. Values are in fact conditional.

Peace is only an affirmative value to those who live in the condition of liberty, that is being rightfully in charge of one's self and able to set the goals for one's own life. Peace cannot be a value to the subjects of a totalitarian socialist state. To the victim of such a state -- the ordinary worker who is bullied by a commissar, the inmate of a slave labor camp, or the occupant of a darkened cell awaiting murder at the hands of the local chekists -- war, either an internal uprising against the socialist masters, or an invasion by an army of liberation, is in fact the positive value.

But if there is anything that I have noticed over the years, it is that most self-proclaimed pacifists are in fact also advocates of totalitarian socialism who have worked within our political system to prevent the overthrow of their Marxist brethren in other nations, and therefore are also accessories to the crimes of these Marxist states.

Isn't it about time that the self-styled peace movement be exposed and dealt with as such?

Rant for the Day (Recycled)

The original version of this was posted on my original blog in 2005:

We must remember that Socialism is essentially a Master/Slave ideology. If you pardon me for quoting the First Trustifarian: From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs. And for the socialists, as with the antebellum slaveholders, the needs of the masters will always be much greater than the needs of the slaves.

But now the socialist master class, both here in the United States and abroad, now see themselves being dispossessed of what according to their ideology is rightfully theirs. Control of their slaves and the products of slave labor.

“Were the actual burning to take place, the safety of our soldiers and civilians would be put in jeopardy and accomplishment of the mission would be made more difficult.”
– Gen. David Petraeus

General, I ask you this: what in hell is your “mission” if We the People jeopardize it by exercising our First Amendment rights in our own homeland? Is your “mission” to defend our rights against foreign enemies, or to defend foreign enemies against our rights?

You made your choice, and you justified it by asserting that you and those under your command have been taken hostage by our terrorist enemy. The ransom demand you obediently delivered to us is that we must submit to your captor’s restrictions against our rightful freedom on our own property, or they’ll kill you.

I remind you and your captors that we do not negotiate with terrorists.

And I remind you that you are the most respected general in the present day, commanding in the most powerful military in all of history, during the most justifiable war in the last seventy years. So please either remember your priorities and slaughter your captors, or resign in disgrace so that we may replace you with a warrior. And if you resign, please do so along with President Obama, Gen. Caldwell, Pentagon Spokesman Lapan, Sec. of State Clinton, Atty. Gen. Holder, NATO Sec. Rasmussen and all others in all branches of government and in all alliances who echoed your request, no matter whether they did so mindlessly or with surrender aforethought.

Our own military leaders asking us to forsake our freedom is un-American. Asking us to do it to on behalf of the comfort of our enemy in a time of war is treasonous. And asking us to do it in the name of the alleged cowardice of those under your command is a shocking and unthinkable act of surrender which I still don’t have all the words for.

But I do have the action for it. We the People will force the issue right here and now. If peacefully exercising our unalienable rights on our own property here in our own homeland endangers you, then we will endanger you.

We will burn the Koran for freedom and post the videos for all the world to see. We will be overt or covert, we will be named or anonymous, we will be sparse or numerous – but we will be unstoppable, and eventually we will be effective.

We will do this because you have no goddamned right to sell out our freedom for the sake of our enemy’s sensitivity. We will do it because you more than have the power to defend yourselves against that enemy if only you would use it. We will do it because facing danger to defend our rightful freedom is why we pay you, train you, equip you, promote you, appoint you, deploy you, and – formerly! – revere you.

You work for us, General, not for our enemy. And we will regain control over you and over this war from the command center of our own backyards. We will destroy any of your alliances of appeasement which would restrict our constitutional rights. We will force the military to defend yourselves and us as you were deployed to do, or to come home in defeat and lock the door behind you.

Whether accidentally through stupidity or deliberately through manipulation, it’s been made clear that We the People have the power to force this issue with nothing more than a book, a match and a video recording.

And so we will.

A right not exercised under duress is a right that has been surrendered. And should you and those above you continue to choose surrender as the course of the military, that will be your own course, your own bargain with the devil, and your own shame – not that of We the People. If free individuals are to remain free, they must defy all oppression at all times, without special exceptions. America was founded on defiance! And some of us remain a proudly defiant people to this day. So if your “mission” is to build understanding in the world, then make sure they understand that about us.

When we can burn our own copies of the Koran on our own soil without credible threats from jihadists or appeasement of those threats from our military and our government, then we will gladly stop burning them.

We may live in occupied territory psychologically, but we do not yet live in occupied territory legally or physically. We will do as we please, and we will continue to expect all branches of our government to secure our right to do it.

I remind you that securing our rights is the only legitimate reason that governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

And not everybody among the governed consents to surrendering our rights to terrorists. We will ensure that you either join us in resisting them, or get out of the way.

Let’s roll.

Alex Johnson of The Epoch Times reports:

Mikhail Gorbachev, the former leader of the USSR, said recently that Moammar Ghadafi could be run out of Libya due to the violent force used to combat the protests.

"Gadhafi reacted so ruthlessly that he might end up being forced out (of his country),” Gorbachev told CNN. “I don't want to make predictions or anything, but he's shooting at people; he is using the military and weapons against defenseless people."

Um, isn't that pretty much the definition of how the Soviet State operated?

You simply can not have Socialism, or "social justice", or any other political order that operates on looting without the exercise of deadly force against the productive population.

The only alternative to a social and political order based on the principle of consent is coercion by physical force. (The emission of fraudulent ideologies only serves to cloud the issue.)

As the present looting spree by the Tax Eaters continues we will eventually see mobs of overburdened taxpayers taking to the streets with their fists in the air and chanting: "HELL NO! WE DON'T OWE!"*

To the various gangs of Tax Eaters, who depend on tax revenue for their sustenance, this is nothing less than a death sentence. And their patrons in executive office on the state and federal level will respond to a tax strike with open and deadly force.

They simply have no other choice.

* Yes, I know what's going on in Wisconsin. I'm simply predicting that things will get a lot worse.

A Question For Today

I have a question for Republican office holders and members of the Tea Party:

If public employee unions, and teacher's unions in particular are corrupt, then how can we continue to allow them anywhere near our children?

Quote of the Day

Mark Urbin posted this on his No Moss Here blog:

Much of the left’s hate speech bears greater similarity to a psychological disorder than to standard political discourse. The hatred is blinding, producing logical contradictions that would be impossible to sustain were it not for the central element faith plays in the left’s new religion. The basic tenet of their faith is this: Maybe they were wrong on facts and policies, but they are good and conservatives are evil. You almost want to give it to them. It’s all they have left.

-- Ann Coulter

Anyone who feels that they are automatically right is automatically wrong.

The persistent habit by the members of The Left of refusing to check their basic beliefs (what Ayn Rand used to call a Premise Check) as well as their immediate facts is leading them away from the path of reality (and thus Life) and onto the path of insanity and destruction. It should come as no surprise that horrendous megaperson body counts were run up by collectivist states in Twentieth Century. Each of those states were founded on a falsehood and led by a leader who was held to be infallible.

Anyone who feels that they are infallible is already in the failure mode.

Progressives In Action

In the early 1930s, the Communist Party of the United States censured a comrade whom they had assigned to infiltrate the National Guard, because he refused to distribute materials demanding the abolition of corporal punishment of the troops on the grounds that it had already been abolished, nearly a century earlier.

Varmint at Attack Cartoons has this to say about campaign of defamation against Sarah Palin and the Tea Party:

Of course Jane Fonda just had to join the chorus of lefties condemning Sarah Palin and the Tea Party for the Tucson Massacre... by posting on Twitter.

Thus demonstrating that she has become something of a twit.

The old school Communist form of lying only worked, if it ever did*, during the age of the industrial mass media. Comrade Fonda and the other old school Reds are simply refusing to face the fact that the new cybernetic personal media allows us to get to the truth far more quickly than the old propaganda machine can react to an event. The OODA loop** of people using the cybernetic personal media is far shorter in time than the reaction time of the industrial age propaganda machine controlled by the present day Reds. And even though the Reds, like Comrade Fonda, are trying to use the personal media to disseminate their message, they no longer hold a monopoly on the means of dissemination.

The Reds and other like minded idiots are going to be washed away in the flood of truth.

* "There is no truth in Pravda."

** Orient-Observe-Decide-Act. The OODA loop, also known as the Boyd Cycle, was identified by a Colonel Boyd of the United States Air Force when he was doing research on the dogfights that happened during the Korean War. Those who are functioning within a shorter Boyd Cycle will have an advantage over their opponent in combat.
