The libertarian principle, the N. A. P.

November 14, 2016

You say that “much of libertarianism”, not all, “is circular reasoning”.

The sum of what libertarianism is, per se, is the non-aggression principle. It is the principle of respecting every person’s right to life, liberty, and his property.

What is the “much circular reasoning” buried in that simple description of principle?? Keep in mind, that any quote from someone who identifies as “libertarian” may or may not be making a case about some peripheral issue, therefore, would no necessarily speak to the answer to the question.

So the question is, once more, what is there about any part of the non-aggression principle is “circular reasoning”, as expressed above?

One may refer to political and legal disputes and disagreements about who owns what, and even bring in wars (!?) to the argument. These are of course disputes that do arise between parties, and you apparently have worked with lawyers and legalese, and judicial disputes.

Such disputes have nothing to do with the question about “circular reasoning”, and fraudulent reasoning from examples of government-created so-called legal fictions (like “corporations” and “LLC”s) are examples of where the principle can be applied. The implications for individual cases can get confusing, sure. Walter Block has written profusely on exotic twists of circumstance and how to apply the NAP. I don’t agree with him on everything but the NAP is real simple, just as “Congress shall make no law…[csuch that etc…] is simple enough.

Open letter to NYT Segal, about ProtonMail and Google cheating

November 13, 2016

Dear Mr. Segal,

I liked your article about the Google rival ProtonMail, and I may start using it myself. Thank you.

I will take the occasion to note that Google has also blacklisted (in its ad-words policies) against companies and web sites, with OBVIOUS political prejudice, like http://www.ericpetersautos.com, and other dissident voices. I am vociferously opposed to most of Pam Gellar’s views, but she is also a victim of Google’s de facto search monopoly.

Google also favors the New York Times over new media, according to a policy Google announced some years ago, when it said it would add points for”established experts” in some of its web products, like its news pages.

Please cover that too, and cover how NYT used its legacy position and the trust of its gullible readers to favor increasing government and the neo-conservative Democrat Party candidate that wanted American jets to cover a no-fly zone in Syria that would have to engage in aerial combat against Russian jets. (A decision the Joint Chiefs Chairman said would risk World War Three).

Emails from Podesta show Hillary campaign used the Press to make Trump the nominee

Not my conspiracy theory; it’s Podesta’s:

AP still promoting climate hoax

November 12, 2016

AP article says that calling the “Climate Change” hoax a hoax is a “false view”.

http://elections.ap.org/content/trump-transition-packed-washington-insiders-lobbyists

They used to call it “Global Warming” with the fraudulent hockey stick graph and other false props, until Climategate and then it became rather obvious to anyone who checked that their own measurements, publicly and freely available, showed that temperatures had stopped going up. 20 years and counting.

The article mentions the resignation of Alberto Gonzalez in 2007 as being associated with a “scandal involving the firing of U. S. attorneys. I wonder if they ever mention that Bill Clinton fired every U. S. Attorney General in the whole department when he took office. Maybe that helped push back on the FBI investigations into the Clinton criminal cartel.

It’s a rather interesting lift of people on Trump’s transition team though. The AP article calls them “Insiders”, but the descriptions therein seem to indicate persons with views that have been shunned from the more powerful “Insiders”.

One troubling indication, though, is the possible offer of Treasury Secretary to the JP Morgan Chase CEO. That is just as bad as a Goldman-Sachs executive pick.

Somebody who had a bio that would indicate she knew some way up there Insider and Secret Society things that I had already known, told me once that nobody could make it that far, to be president without being one of the Secret Society insiders.

If so, that would indicate in these transition team picks that there are factions in “Deep State” that absolutely did not want to risk World War Three, Soros be damned. Maybe.

“By their fruits ye shall know them”, said Jesus Christ. “Ye shall know them by their fruits”.

NYT soul-searching misses the point

November 11, 2016

So a NYT “journalist” writes an epitaph for their failure to continue Control Freak Government and crown the Queen of the Rich. But I only got to the first paragraph, talking about the Americans it “seldom covers”:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/stunned-trump-york-times-finds-205904328.html

MAJOR FAIL. They have covered Flyover Country, over and over again. All those accusations against Trump were really disgusted with the unwashed masses they so despise and so much wish would depopulate. That’s why they love Margaret Sanger so much. They had to call Farmer Smith and his family, and the abused ranchers of the West, a basket of deplorables, racists, misogynists, nazis, xenophobes, homophobes, bitter clngers to religion and guns, afraid of change, that was where their Dear Leaders and their dear cheerleaders in Crony Media let the cat out of the bag, they let slip, that it is really traditional and cultural common-sense Americans and especially Christians that they really hate. And hate is what THEY (and you compliant media presstitutes) do.

The rioters, the ones who are paid, and the ones who are psyched by the paid agents provocateurs, into being the patsies for them, are probably mostly unwitting. Some of their leaders are willfully ignorant.

Willful ignorance (“dumb on purpose”) was on full display when one of you (media) said Bill Clinton’s rape and abuse victims were women who had former “relationships” with him and another said “affairs”. You pretended that you don’t know about the various “Clinton hit lists” out there,. You say somebody “edited” a video because it exposed Clinton Campaign money and coordination being paid out to cause violence at Trump rallies and shut down one of them completely (Chicago), out of the mouth of TWO thugs who bragged about the orders from the campaign.

The real story there was Veritas using the Clinton Mob corruption against itself. Ha!

But the top echelon of world-destroyers like the Soros-Rockefeller-Rothschild-Rhodes cabals, and the leaders of their secret societies that they use to corrupt some of the smarter ones with money and pride, these are pure evildoers plotting to rule with their own Supreme Lord, who “will come to his end, and none shall help him”.

Their problem is that either they left their brains when they got on the payroll, or they were handpicked for their conformist thinking.

How about re-thinking your idiotic praise for genital mutilation, bearded guys sharing bathrooms with little girls, demanding more job-killing theft from the ones who invest and hire?

Most of all, how about trying to STOP wars instead of cheering the Butcher of Libya who gave money, power and guns to the thugs that wiped out Towargah’s blacks?

Will my little voice matter? It will to a precious few, and even some of those evildoers. Because there is hope for evildoers.

“Come now, and let us reason together saith the Lord. Though your sins be as scarlet they shall be white as snow” (Isaiah 1:18).

There is forgiveness and a new, clean life and your sins can be washed away, even if you have been initiated into the worst of the Orders and covens. Jesus will wipe away all your tears and give you a new heart.

 

 

 

 

 

Time to review peer-review itself

November 8, 2016

Only a tiny percentage of the world can’t do the math nor conceptualize what most Quantum Mechanics papers talk about.

That leaves how many? Ten thousand? One thousand? How about getting every possible eyeball that is interested in the subject a chance?

That is all the more reason that the wide-open Internet is better than trusting the old ways of “peer review”. Having three or four people to pass or veto new ideas because of the cost of paper and ink is a very obsolete notion now.

Joao Magueijo is no intellectual lightweight. In his book “Faster Than the Speed of Light”, he penned his complaints about the peer review process he had to go through, only because his theory was possible a “breakthrough” that challenged a basic dogma current cosmology and physics. He was put through double the usual trouble, and points to the Internet as facilitating good alternatives.

Climategate exposed the dark essence of peer review, with one of the conniving hoaxters colluding with a colleague about using it to censor out dissident papers. James Watts discusses peer review in the context of climate hysteria at his blog:

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/12/01/climategate-begs-the-question-is-peer-review-in-need-of-change/

Nature Magazine hosted a web-based discussion on the subject of peer review, at a link that Watts provided as useful:

Righteous or Wicked, Rejoice or Mourn

November 8, 2016

Teacher arrested for propositioning an 1–year old boy:

https://pjmedia.com/parenting/2016/06/22/11-year-olds-response-to-nude-teacher-sex-proposition-ok-idc/

“…charges of attempted lewd or lascivious conduct, solicitation and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, showing a minor obscene material and child abuse…”

Sounds like prime-time TV these days. Hollywood is a cesspool, and the Hillary Clinton clan and their GNWO (globalist) sponsors brought the sewage into the halls of power.

The wikileaks dump of Podesta’s email also show the pedophilia of those who fake caring for the children, it’s all for the children they say, they lie.

We do not consent. The imperial capital of the Empire, the New York-D. C. Metroplex, Babylon is an oppressing weight, and people and persons are not happy.

 

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.-Proverbs 29:2

 

 

Conspiracy? What conspiracy? Don’t you trust your governmentand its media?

November 6, 2016

Conspiracy theory? What conspiracy?

Battleship Maine.

Memphis Syphilis trials.

CIA experimentation with LSD.

Gulf of Tonkin.

CIA-engineered coup in Iran.

Organized violent attacks at Trump rallies organized by professionals paid by the Clinton campaign.

DNC tilt favoring Hillary Clinton.

Franklin D. Roosevelt had foreknowledge of the Pearl Harbor attack.

Treaties with “First Americans” meant to be broken.

You’ll have to pass the bill to know what’s in it.

Jonathan Gruber:

“So I like the public option. The public option is actually the brainchild of another academic, a guy named Jacob Hacker who’s at Yale. And the public option, basically it was a clever idea. He said look, the left wants single-payer, the right wants competition–how about we have competition where the option is single-payer. It’s kind of a clever way to call both sides bluff. Basically, since it was such a good idea that’s why both sides didn’t like it. Okay, the right didn’t like it because they were afraid that the left was right and the single-payer would work.

The left didn’t like it because they were afraid that the single-payer didn’t have enough teeth to really work. And basically, the public option, to be honest, was never going to happen. The public option was really something that was in there. It was a good idea as a debating point but it just was too radical. Remember, the reason this reform passed, as barely as it did, is because it was not trying to rip up things and start over. It was trying to work incrementally off the existing system. The public option was viewed as too radical.”

Lies told to the Congress and to the world earlier:

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor

If you like your plan you can keep your plan

Pro-life Democrats were promised that abortion-inducing prescriptions would not be covered.

Chemical attacks in Syria blamed on Assad shown to a false flag by U. S. supported al Qaeda terrorists.

Is suicide selfish?

November 6, 2016

I just came across a Huffington Post article where the writer tries to make the argument that suicide is not selfish. He describes the strong negative emotions of depression.

Suicide is a decision made out of desperation, hopelessness, isolation and loneliness. The black hole that is clinical depression is all-consuming. Feeling like a burden to loved ones, feeling like there is no way out, feeling trapped and feeling isolated are all common among people who suffer from depression.

People who say that suicide is selfish always reference the survivors. It’s selfish to leave children, spouses and other family members behind, so they say. They’re not thinking about the survivors, or so they would have us believe. What they don’t know is that those very loved ones are the reason many people hang on for just one more day. They do think about the survivors, probably up until the very last moment in many cases. But the soul-crushing depression that envelops them leaves them feeling like there is no alternative. Like the only way to get out is to opt out. And that is a devastating thought to endure.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/katie-hurley/theres-nothing-selfish-about-suicide_b_5672519.html

The emotions that precede a suicide vary with the individual involved. The tone of the article seem to indicate that the writer was close to someone who “committed suicide”, maybe his father. In my case, it was my son.

My son had his ups and downs, he was “not the brightest bulb” but he was given to impulse, wild emotional swings, unbalanced, and I often wonder how much of the more difficult times were due to the meds they gave him.

Katie Hurley, in the quoted paragraph above, uses the emotional state of the person so as to say it is not a selfish act, and in defense of this thinking correctly points out that most people who say it is a selfish act reference the survivors.

Katie misses the point of those who reference the survivors, if her point is to say it is irrelevant. In fact, she continues with a perspective that recognizes its relevance, and the selfishness of the act, by talking about what drives the act, the depression.

To say it another way, the person who dwells in the depression, in other words, is not thinking about anybody but themselves when they do the act.

Now, that is not to dismiss the complicated feelings that surround those acts.

And let me point out that my son was no more selfish, or even self-centered, in general, than anybody else. It’s true that he was not as good as most of us at sublimated this, but he had a positive soul in him. He often went about sharing a good time when he was with others (and sure, sometimes not —and would often encourage people with the best news of his life, asking the people around him if they knew Jesus.
