Government is Slavery

Post by admin » Sat Jun 15, 2019 11:59 pm

Taxation is Theft, therefore Government is Slavery, therefore Voting is an Act of Violence.

IF you IGNORE the empirical factuality of these observations,

fail to recognize them to be true by logic and definition,
or fail to reach the correct and logical conclusion that:

it is immoral, wrong, supremely detestable, etc.,
to condone or participate in "government"
, then...

I propose this is because you have been BRAINWASHED, dumbed-down and indoctrinated
to inhibit or disable even consideration of these ideas,

never-mind educate yourself and engage enough thought process to actually understand them--
conditioned to group-think rather than taught how to actually think for yourself.

With the conditioned reflex of a fish in a school, or a denizen of 'The Matrix',
you will probably argue in defense of the very system of our enslavement
to mass murderers and unspeakable evil: "government".

This sentiment of suckers, typifying the rampant COWARDICE infecting society,
is based on a fear and loathing so very glorified by our "culture" of statism:
that of personal responsibility to acknowledge truth and act morally.

Your IGNORE-ance of these obvious facts is an insult to the entire human race,
including yourself, and is on my list of things that are worth being angry about.

But I don't expect many to understand or agree, due to pervasive stupidity.
No offense to anyone...
After all, 99%+ of people on this madhouse planet are insane, supremely ignorant cowards
who will accuse me of being the crazy/stupid one. Wake up. Grow a set. Educate yourself...

"It is self-evident that no number of men, by conspiring, and calling themselves a government, can acquire any rights whatever over other men, or other men's property, which they had not before, as individuals. And whenever any number of men, calling themselves a government, do anything to another man, or to his property, which they had no right to do as individuals, they thereby declare themselves trespassers, robbers, or murderers, according to the nature of their acts." - Lysander Spooner

"The belief in "authority," which includes all belief in "government," is irrational and self-contradictory; it is contrary to civilization and morality, and constitutes the most dangerous, destructive superstition that has ever existed. Rather than being a force for order and justice, the belief in "authority" is the arch-enemy of humanity." - Larken Rose, The Most Dangerous Superstition

"Those who believe that "Authority" is necessary and that it must continue, have actually been duped into believing that human SLAVERY is necessary and must continue in order to prevent Chaos. Violence and Slavery CAN NOT prevent Chaos. Violence and Slavery ARE Chaos. The Fear of the possibility of Chaos IS the Fear of True Freedom" - Mark Passio (WhatOnEarthIsHappening.com)

"The essence of all slavery consists in taking the product of another's labor by force. It is immaterial whether this force be founded upon ownership of the slave or ownership of the money that he must get to live." - Leo Tolstoy

"Through taxation, pacifists are forced at gunpoint to pay for killing machines; vegetarians are forced at gunpoint to subsidize grazing land for cattle; non-smokers are forced at gunpoint to support both the production of tobacco and the research to counter its impact on health." - Dr. Mary Ruwart, Healing Our World

"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want, merely because you think it would be good for him." - Robert A. Heinlein

"Naturally the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship." - Herman Goering

"A people that elect corrupt politicians are not victims... but accomplices." - George Orwell

"Voting has become a farce, if indeed it was ever anything else. By voting, the people decide only which of the oligarchs preselected for them as viable candidates will wield the whip used to flog them and will command the legion of willing accomplices who perpetrate the countless violations of the people's natural rights." - Robert Higgs

"Having been convinced that "authority" is real, and that by way of it, some human beings have acquired the moral right to initiate violence and commit acts of aggression against others (by way of so-called "laws"), every Democrat, every Republican, every voter, and everyone else who advocates "government" in any form is a proponent of violence and injustice. Of course, they do not see it that way, because their belief in "authority" has warped and perverted their perception of reality." - Larken Rose

"The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority." - Stanley Milgram

"Loyal obedience to "authority," while painted by many as a great virtue, is really nothing more than a pathetic attempt to escape the responsibility of being human and reduce oneself to an unthinking, amoral, programmable machine." - Larken Rose

"Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hard-headed realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives [abdicate responsibility] to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners." - Edward Abbey

"Anarchism: A Philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by man-made laws; the theory that all forms of government rest on violence, and are therefore wrong and harmful, as well as unnecessary." - Emma Goldman

"The understanding of Natural Law is centered upon bringing our own Conscience into alignment with Objective Morality." - Mark Passio

"The thought of how far the human race would have advanced without government simply staggers the imagination." - Doug Casey

"To say an anarchist society would be devoid of morality ignores the entire reason people are anarchists. The only reason to be an anarchist is the realization that the state itself is an immoral institution. Anarchism is rooted in a belief in morality." - Fred Autonom

"Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukranians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a 'Great Leap Forward' that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children. In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy's mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state's mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous." - Robert Higgs

"If you endorse a system of violence and coercion that threatens me with force on a daily basis, and I advocate for the abolition of that system, this is not just some difference of opinion where we can simply agree to disagree. You are actively participating in conspiracy to commit theft, assault, kidnapping and murder. There is no other context in which anybody would find this an acceptable pattern of behavior, the fact that billions of people across the globe allow you to be a willing participant in violent crime doesn't mean that you are entitled to the opinion that violent crime is a good thing, you have no right to be that wrong." - Chris Cantwell

"Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves." - Henry David Thoreau

"If you personally advocate that I be caged if I don't pay for whatever government things YOU want, please don't pretend to be tolerant, or non-violent, or enlightened, or compassionate. Don't pretend you believe in live and let live, and don't pretend you want peace, freedom, or harmony." - Larken Rose

"I wonder how many such men in America would know that Communism, The New Deal, Fascism, Nazism, are merely so-many trade-names for COLLECTIVIST STATISM, like the trade-names for tooth-pastes which are all exactly alike except for the flavouring." - Albert Jay Nock

"Democracy is also a form of religion. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses." - H. L. Mencken

"There can be no socialism without the state, and as long as there is a state, there is socialism. The state then is the very institution that puts socialism into action; and as socialism rests on aggressive violence directed against innocent victims, aggressive violence is the nature of any state." Hans-Hermann Hoppe

"Taxation of earnings from labor is on par with forced labor. Seizing the results of someone's labor is equivalent to seizing hours from him and directing him to carry on various activities." - Robert Nozick

"Interestingly, even those who talk about "representative government" refuse to accept any personal responsibility for actions taken by those for whom they voted. If their candidate of choice enacts a harmful "law," or raises "taxes," or wages war, the voters never feel the same guilt or shame they would feel if they themselves had personally done such things, or had hired or instructed someone else to do such things. This fact demonstrates that even the most enthusiastic voters do not actually believe the rhetoric about "representative government," and do not view politicians as their representatives." - Larken Rose

"...the American government you see today is exactly what its designers wanted when they designed it, and the excuses given by American "patriots" not to burn it to the ground today are the same weak excuses they gave at every stage of its development since 1787. The Constitution of the United States of America was and is a document of enslavement intended to fool the weak minded while pacifying those who possess the moral fortitude and intelligence to stand up to tyranny." - Sedition, Subversion and Sabotage Field Manual No. 1 (fb.com/BadQuakerDotCom)

"Political parties are disease vectors. They are hybrid cocktails of the milgram experiment and the stockholm syndrome with a strong police state chaser to set the virus in place. The virus is used to render an otherwise healthy ecology of spontaneous order into a shambling and largely inefficient engine for selecting a group of controllers to benefit at the expense of the whole. It is no more complex than that." - (zerogov.com)

"Mutualism is applicable to every human relations. Throughout the whole gamut of existence, from birth to death, mutuality--voluntary association for reciprocal action--is everywhere and at every moment waiting to solve every problem of social intercourse, to decide every issue that arises in commerce and industry. In order to practice mutualism, it is necessary to name only two conditions; that the non-invasive individual shall not be coerced, and that no part of the product of any one's labor shall be taken from him without his consent. With those negative generalizations thus postulated, thereby affirming the sovereignty of the individual, therefrom flows naturally the positive and constructive corollary--reciprocity; which implies individual initiative, free contract, and voluntary association." - Clarence Lee Swartz, The Practicability of Mutualism

"Those who advocate either slavery or income taxation should be ashamed of themselves. Genuine freedom entails the abolition, not the reform, of income taxation and the IRS, just as genuine freedom entailed the abolition, not the reform, of slavery." - Jacob G. Hornberger

"Freedom is the societal condition that exists when every individual has 100% control of his own property." - Andrew Joseph Galambos

"Statement of Purpose: Voluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society.
We reject electoral politics, in theory and in practice, as incompatible with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura of moral legitimacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably strengthen that legitimacy.Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent on which State power ultimately depends." - (voluntaryist.com)

"You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and following its decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul." - Mahatma Gandhi

"The system cannot be fixed by the system." - Tom Morello

"The most dangerous thing you can do is educate people. Because when people become educated, you cannot control them, you cannot frighten them. People who are educated know their own power, and don't surrender it to others." - Jordan Maxwell

"Our countries are corporations and the world is a business controlled by a small group of untouchable banking families. The laws that control our society have been meticulously structured over thousands of years to protect the corporations, while giving us the illusion that we are free. We, the people, are blissfully ignorant that we are the slaves and the assets of those who control the business. It is time to wake up and free ourselves. Nobody will do this for us. The universe awaits our action, so that it can respond through the law of attraction, and welcome humanity into the universal community of beings of higher consciousness." - Michael Tellinger, UBUNTU Contributionism

"Using these new and old technologies, dissent and original thought are being ripped from us. Traditions of individual sovereignty and freedom are being expunged from our minds and from the history books. And, due to the multitude of anesthetics we have been shot up with, we don't feel a thing. If we do not succeed in stopping the Controllers, ultimately the only people left will be the marching morons, the gullible, and those so apathetic as to have entirely forgotten that freedom can exist." - Jim Kieth, Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness

Re: Government is Slavery

Post by admin » Fri Nov 29, 2019 9:20 pm

I'm very interested in questions, comments and critique regarding what I am saying, and will address any such commentary here to clarify for others who might have the same concerns. Below you will find a list of these along with my responses.

Criticism:
"Your rant is poorly worded."

Response:
The purpose of my rant is not to achieve literary excellence, though as far as I can see, it is not grammatically incorrect in any way (feel free to kindly correct me if it is), and it is actually very clear, precise, and specific in what it says... even if some of the sentences must be read twice (or with care) to understand.

I must beg your pardon if you do not appreciate the way I have deliberately worded my message to emphasize or hint that extra attention and study is likely required in order to grasp it. Admittedly, this subtlety will probably be lost on most, at least at the conscious level, but be that as it may, I must write according to the dictates of my intuition and conscience, which rebukes any attempt to quickly skim-label-dismiss my words, and might annoy those determined to do so.

That being said, the great many scholars, authors, and researchers listed below the rant have undoubtedly articulated these ideas far more effectively than I am able (or inclined as the case may be), and this is why I have included so many of their quotes and referenced their works on this topic so extensively (though it amounts to only a tiny fragment of the totality of information on the topic). The profundity and poignancy of this critically needed message will not be lost upon their careful study and comprehension, deficiencies in the wording of my own bumbling rant notwithstanding. I offer my own words only as a genuine and honest appraisal and reaction to this material, and to the widespread ignorance of the knowledge it imparts.

I must confess that I do not find critique of my wording to be nearly as interesting as critique of the points being made, but if you must... pointing out specific errors in grammar or an explanation of which and why specific wording choices are poor, (perhaps with suggested alternatives), would give meaning and value to an otherwise rather pointless remark.

Criticism:
"Your position fails to address the exploitation of workers by capitalism."

Response:
It's only termed "exploitation" in these types of propagandized phrases to obscure what it actually is: slavery. There is no exploitation without enslavement, without violence; and "capitalism", being the "free market", is the antithesis of enslavement, as it stands to reason that, by definition, market participants can only be considered "free" if they are NOT enslaved. So the very phrase "exploitation by capitalism" is a schizophrenic oxymoron on its face, and in fact can only make sense to those who have been brainwashed with the common, dumbed-down, degraded definition of "capitalism" (as it's been conflated with "corporatism", to take blame for the readily visible consequences of statism).

Because "worker exploitation" cannot be distinguished from ENSLAVEMENT, and is actually caused by government (as I will explain in detail), and not caused by "capitalism" (as is falsely presumed), this issue is exactly what my position is addressing. But the way these words are typically used (or misused) is designed to lull the ignorant into false assumption and acceptance of obfuscated or conflated meaning... "exploitation
by capitalism" is in actuality "enslavement by statism" with the terms changed to protect the guilty and frame the innocent, as any critical analysis starting from the right questions will reveal.

The main question that must of course be asked in a situation of "worker exploitation", is WHY? By what ROOT CAUSE is the worker in the position of being forced into exploitative conditions, bereft of any alternate means, options, and resources?

The answer can only be one thing in every instance: violence.

And invariably, it is because of state violence (never by employers directly). This is empirically and obviously true, proven not only by the violence government perpetrates directly on behalf of the corporations it actually serves (via licensing requirements, regulation of competition, subsidies, etc.), but also by the land exclusion, taxation, and corporate monopolization of currency production (monetary debasement and forced usury) it imposes upon the populace. The idea that "government protects people from corporations" is akin to thinking a fox should guard the hen-house- a highly propagandized fallacy that continues to be swallowed by the masses despite flying in the face of all logic, observation, and historical evidence to the contrary.

What should rightfully be despised is "corporatism" (practically a synonym for statism). Corporations are farcical "legal entities", existing and operating by the force of government. "Capitalism" needs to be distinguished from corporatism by the important "laissez faire" definition of capitalism: the right of any two individuals (real, actual persons) to engage in mutually voluntary trade of their productivity and rightful property WITHOUT intervention or regulation (violence) by a third party (such as "government").

This vital definition of capitalism gets dishonored and obliterated when, while still defined as the "free market" (basically freedom itself!), "capitalism" is falsely attributed the violence ("exploitation") that should rightly be attributed to corporatism/statism. This conflation and misdirection is a severely unfortunate degradation of (and attack on) not only our language, but in turn our very ability to understand how freedom and slavery work on earth at this time. This is weaponized Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a form of social engineering and mass mind control in action.

If we understand and value freedom (human rights), we must also advocate actual capitalism: freedom of exchange without any violent interference and coercion, especially without the violence and coercion perpetrated by governments ("taxation" and "regulation"), which is ALWAYS at the root of "worker exploitation" (enslavement).

Without the violence of the state, workers would be in a position (free) to quit working for "exploitative employers" and to homestead and work their own land directly (agrarianism!), building and maintaining their wealth instead of having it stripped away through inflation and taxation... they could then (if they felt like it) start their own enterprises to compete with the "exploiters", causing them to be more reasonable in their wage offerings or go out of business.

Any honest look at the reasons why "exploited workers" (slaves) are not in such a position (FREE, to work the earth directly), clearly reveals state violence as the culprit, not unregulated human freedom of exchange (capitalism). This means "greed" or the "greed of capitalism" is just a bogeyman or scapegoat presented to take attention away from the true cause of exploitation/slavery and the violence driving it: the state.

Blaming "capitalism", or the "greed of the free market" as the cause of "exploitation" is part of the Neuro-Linguistic Ploy, a brainwashing technique, psychologically playing off of people's anger at being downtrodden, (also their mommy/daddy issues in looking to government as a provider/protector), thus easily misdirecting their emotional energy toward those "greedy capitalist pigs", and bypassing any logical analysis
of facts or application of reason (which would rightly place blame with government, rather than see it as the
solution).

A testament to how effective these NLP tricks have been is the obfuscated meanings and widespread hatred of the very words originally and traditionally carrying the meaning of freedom in its various aspects, including: "capitalism", "anarchy", and "libertarian".

This maligning of the word "capitalism", and the obfuscation of its meaning (conflating it with corporatism as described above), is particularly insidious when it indicates "government" as the solution to the problem of "exploitation", rather than correctly identifying "government" as the very mechanism of corporate ENSLAVEMENT (let's call it what it is). All institutionalized aggressive coercion (regulation) and confiscation of property/productivity (taxation) is slavery, unequivocally, regardless of whichever euphemism it gets labeled as. Once again, government is being sold as the solution to the very problem it causes via an emotional trigger that bypasses rationality with false assumption and obfuscated terms.

These kind of deceptions escape people's notice largely because A) they are emotionally triggered, jumping, without critical analysis, to any socially validated direction in which to hurl blame; B) they are ignorant of the etymological and historical meanings of the words being used, or rather being distorted through misuse;and C) they have been conditioned NOT to ask the important questions regarding the ROOT CAUSE of social problems and injustice, but instead to tacitly presume that government and "authority" NECESSARILY MUST be the solution to any such problems... to favor group consensus (group think), over actually asking hard questions and thinking things through (thanks mostly to authoritarian indoctrination and
dumbing-down in "public schools").

When you see through the deception, this blatant lie (that "capitalism" is responsible for "exploitation"), it seems incredulous (and ridiculous) that so many people could be taken in by it, but then again we must keep in mind that these are the same liars who managed at one time to convince almost the entirety of western "civilization" that cannabis is an evil, worthless plant that should be banned, along with countless other
absurdities that fit their psychopathic agendas.

"War is Peace" " "Freedom is Slavery" "Ignorance is Strength" - George Orwell

The effectiveness of their propaganda machine (again starting with "school"), to convince masses of people to believe the opposite of truth (even when blatantly obvious), and ESPECIALLY TO SUBLIMINALLY INGRAIN THE "JUSTIFICATION" AND NECESSITY FOR "AUTHORITY" AND GOVERNMENT DEEPLY INTO THE SUBCONSCIOUS, must not be underestimated. (For extensive evidence of this claim, see the work of John Taylor Gatto, Dorothy Sayers, and Charlotte Iserbyt)

For a scholarly and comprehensive address of the issue of "exploitation" by "capitalism", I recommend the works of the late great economist, anarchist, and prolific author Murray N. Rothbard (heroic coiner of the term "anarcho-capitalism"), who spent an entire lifetime studying and writing on this topic. Particularly, his epic Man, Economy, and State (freely available online at mises.org); in chapter 12, The Economics of Violent Intervention in the Market, Rothbard astutely nails it:

"Intervention is the intrusion of aggressive physical force into society; it means the substitution of coercion for voluntary actions. It must be remembered that, praxeologically, it makes no difference what individual or group wields this force; the economic nature and consequences of the action remain the
same.

Empirically, the vast bulk of interventions are performed by States, since the State is the only organizationin society legally equipped to use violence and since it is the only agency that legally derives its revenuefrom a compulsory levy."

"On the market, therefore, there can be no such thing as exploitation. But the thesis of an inherent conflict of interest is true whenever the State or anyone else wielding force intervenes on the market. For then the intervener gains at the expense of the subjects who lose in utility. On the market all is harmony.

But as soon as intervention appears on the scene, conflict is created, for each person or group may participate in a scramble to be a net gainer rather than a net loser--to be part of the intervening team, as it were, rather than one of the victims. And the very institution of taxation
ensures that some will be in the net gaining, and others in the net losing, class."

In short, and as might be recognized as common sense once the true meanings of the words are acknowledged: capitalism no more causes exploitation than freedom causes slavery.

On the other hand, "government" is merely a euphemism for enslavement... the (illegitimate) claim that one or some humans have the right to own, rule over, or command others, or confiscate their productivity or property. It matters not in the slightest whether this authority is imagined to exist because of divine decree, a difference in skin color, a bunch of people voted it that way, or because of any other perceived justification.

"Government" is ALWAYS as illegitimate a claim as the claim that one person owns another; the two claims are in fact indistinguishable... government IS slavery.
