The non-aggression principle is not only compatible but also the best way to accomplish this list of goals specifically:
facilitate our development
facilitate the development of our fellow citizens
facilitate our interrelations with our families and our friends
facilitate our interactions with our colleagues and fellow citizens
facilitate the functioning of our societies.
Here’s one it is NOT compatible with:
facilitate the functioning of our governments
There are violent gangs, and there are governments. They both violate the non-aggression principle.
The biggest enemy of material and cultural development is government.
The biggest enemy of “the development of our fellow citizens” is government because it grows a monopoly of force and a monopoly control of communications media, at least to the extent that its victims allow it.
The biggest enemy of “our interrelations with our families and friends” has proven to be governments. It invites corruption, invents unjust rules to justify interfering in people’s own free choices in the market, robs the rich and the poor, mostly the poor, to subsidize their friends. The politicization of everything under color of “rights”, for example, has broken up many families and turned people afflicted by gender confusion against loving parents. “Love” is turned into “hate”.
Governments also attack most fiercely today the institutions of families and religion because individuals in families and believers resist the most tenaciously against commands to relinquish children and beliefs to state control.
The functioning of societies operates best under the non-aggression principle, which is the most time-tested and proven principle that promotes peaceful societies. Trying to justify the aggression of governments based on the fact that some people will always violate it, is an exercise in self-contradiction and confusion.
Because governments ARE a violation of the non-aggression principle by definition, claiming the right to steal your property and use violence against you if you disobey them.
Terranet in talks over mast-free mobile voice software:
Cell phones have enough hardware technology to support using as walkie-talkies, and to support a peer-to-peer network among cell phone nodes, as the article above shows.
What I’m waiting for is something that will enable an alternative network alongside the Internet, or even outside the Internet.
A recent edition of The new Scientist magazine, of 9 May 2015, features an article by Barbara Finlay comparing the phenomenon of pain in humans as compared to animals. First of all, it’s different.
It seems primates do not feel pain in childbirth as human mothers do.
That was another eureka moment for me as a Bible-believer, and one of those things that makes you wonder why you missed it. Because pain and travail in childbirth was one of the curses at the time of the Garden after Adam and Eve disobeyed.
“Human childbirth appears to be uniquely painful among members of the animal kingdom”. Scientists formerly thought it was because of the size of the baby’s head compared to the pelvis, but there are animals, she says, like marmosets, who have comparable birth conditions without showing so much pain.
Author Finlay speculates the survival benefit of giving mothers in labor time to recruit help for the event. Which is another Biblical truth. Even God’s curses are for very good reasons.
This TPP they’re talking about “fast-tracking” in Congress is taxation without representation (who’s to say there isn’t a tax hidden there somewhere?), and most certainly extortion without representation.
No way it’s free trade, it’s managed trade, where the biggest international companies, including the state-owned ones, call the shots.
A true “free trade” agreement needs NO secrecy AT ALL. One sentence. Government “A” will lay no tarrifs at all on goods that private parties import from nation “B”, and government “B” will assess no tariffs at all on goods that private parties import from nation “A”.
One paragraph. If your home-based companies howl too much about the home-based consumers having cheaper alternatives, then give add a transitional period with an immovable irrevocable deadline date after a reasonable period. Like one month, the same notice the biggest companies give their own consumers. Done.
Yes, money, but let the end users decide. The users decide by means of the Free Market. Government rules distort everything, make the users complacent and even more vulnerable, and now we see even the Federal Government doesn’t have enough money to secure their own personnel files.
Why is that? There’s no free market and the victims (the ones they extorted the taxes from) don’t have an option. In a free market, the consumer is king, and if he screws himself with the wrong choices, let him learn. I did not buy a house during the crazy bubble so the bust didn’t hurt me except indirectly through the economic effects of the less cautious. I shouldn’t have to pay for the other guy.
So it should be with bugs in code. Who pays for the time, who uses it, there are insurance companies. Insurance against security bugs, let loose the actuaries on it, and insurance companies and associated security companies get into the mix, and the breaches diminish. At least until it finds a cost/benefit medium, where the security finds the pivot between demand for security (with its cost) and demand for cheap and easy.

Oh yeah, right, how long have they been working on it? Do they have a list yet? Actions vs. words…

“12 Unanswered Questions About The Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us To Ask”
Mayor says she “gave them space” in Baltimore to riot, burn, and loot. She gave it as a tool they used to “de-escalate”. But the day after they went in with all the military-style occupation force they could throw at them.
And if this was the plan, why did they leave cop cars in the middle of the “anything-goes” territory, the “Purge Zone”?
#4 Where were the Baltimore police on Monday afternoon when the riots exploded? During the rioting, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said that the “disappearance of the police for hours this afternoon is something that is going to haunt this city for decades”.
My question is, why doesn’t the Media interview a few owners of businesses in the affected area? Is it blacks that own stores don’t rate with City Hall?
