A summary of my beliefs.. We’re self-autonomous individuals that are perfectly capable of managing our own persons and assets. What’s mine is mine, not yours.. what’s yours is yours, not mine. I’m responsible for myself.. you’re responsible for yourself. It would be wrong of me to force you to remedy the consequences of my irresponsibility.. It’s equally as wrong of you to force me to remedy the consequences of your irresponsibility. If we honestly need help we should be responsible and ask for it.. not try to force others to help us.
J R Fibonacci Hunn What I find hilarious about so many anarchist fanatics (and Austrian economics enthusiasts / libertarians) is their hysterical contempt for coercion (and predation). Of course governments are predatory.
If a governing system was voluntary, like churches requesting donations, then that is a system in which people voluntarily ally to internally govern their own households and activities. But that is just a congregation unless they get some armed thugs to impose an extortion racket on local business owners (aka sales tax / business license).
J R Fibonacci Hunn Is it economically predictable that pirates would perform acts of piracy (isolated incidents of predation)? Yes. For governments to ritualize predation and then indoctrinate their human resources about their predatory rituals is also “economical” as in profitable / effective.
J R Fibonacci Hunn I have respect for pirates. They are dangerous.
I also have respect for deputy pirates from the holy empire of piracy. They are even more tricky. They also go around programming the naive about “golden rules” and then intimidate people in to compliance by spreading stories about Santa Claus magically watching whether we follow the golden rule so that he can know whether to let us in to heaven, which is eternal except that it has not started yet.
J R Fibonacci Hunn Also, respect that hysterical and naive people may worship an idea of Santa Claus (or Saint Peter) that is keeping score on them to send them to eternal torture or eternal paradise. That is a powerful belief system if someone sincerely believes it.
so, respecting them means be alert to the possibility that if I expose someone “negligently” to the idea of propaganda, it could be upsetting to them (demoralizing- since “my parents LIED to me”). When the rulers want to incite a rebellion so that the cops can “retaliate” and “take preventive measures” by confining people to FEMA camps and implanting chips, then they can carefully trigger outrage and contempt among the relevant demographics of human resources.
J R Fibonacci Hunn Again, if the rulers are inciting the masses with SWAT teams in position and ready to “retaliate,” then they WANT the masses to lash out. In fact, if the masses do not lash out as planned, then some folks from the SWAT team can dress up as protesters and then start throwing water balloons at the uniformed SWAT team, justifying a “retaliation.”
J R Fibonacci Hunn Jordan, Many people use the phrase “to awaken someone” to mean “harass them with terrifying information about the predatory nature of all governments, especially their own government.” Of course people get upset when their programmed delusions (denials) are challenged and the true target of the “war of terror” is recognized.
J R Fibonacci Hunn That reminds me that just yesterday I saw several full-grown Bears hiding behind some big rocks in a stream and then grabbing salmon right out of the air as the Salmon were swimming upstream. I think those are the same group of bears that messed up your backyard that one time and killed your kittens. We need to do something about those evil bears and by we I mean you.
J R Fibonacci Hunn Keep in mind that those are also the same bears that cornered your little sister last week and told her that it is wrong to eat bacon. We can’t just sit here on Facebook and let these bears use force against salmon and intimidate little girls, can we? Using force is wrong, so let’s take our loaded assault rifles and go have a friendly talk with those evil bears. I’m sure that they just need to be shown the superiority of Christian morality over their anti-bacon insanity.
J R Fibonacci Hunn Of course if they are not reasonable, then they probably just have rabies and we should put them out of their misery… Then stuff their corpses and mount them on our wall… You know, to defend the honor of your little sister and innocent salmon and stuff like that. I’m just so pissed that they killed your kittens!
Jordan Rockwell There’s a difference between initiating force and using defensive force. Force isn’t “bad” in and of itself. And.. harassing someone with the truth? I think not. It’s in my best interest and in the best interest of humanity in general to share the truth about the predatory and murderous nature of government.
J R Fibonacci Hunn Aggression is natural. For a lion to initiate aggression against an antelope (predation) or against another lion (territorial competition) is natural. Humans also can be quite competitive and predatory.
It is in your best interest, Jordan, to respect that humans can be competitive and predatory, then to be careful about things like erecting fences to keep out foxes and tax collectors and so on. Even better than just a fence is a few guard dogs or even an entire team of secret service thugs.
If you never physically leave your “homestead,” so be it. 😉
J R Fibonacci Hunn Not only can you hate the tax collectors and the cops and the other government employees and also people who get benefits from the government (food stamps etc), but you can even construct an excuse to hate me because I paid $2.73 of sales tax on my monthly internet service.
J R Fibonacci Hunn So, on behalf of humanity, I invite you to first forgive me for ruining your life by paying sales tax for DECADES without getting your approval first… And then second I will repeat to you that I could really use your help forcing these pigs in to the slaughterhouse because I am getting low in bacon and this is basically an emergency.
Jordan Rockwell It becomes my business when others advocate that I be forcibly subjugated should I choose to not comply with arbitrary dictates I’ve never consented to. And regarding paying taxes..I think this quote from Roger is fairly relatable.. “Saying that a person isn’t an anarchist if he pays income tax, is like saying that a woman isn’t faithful if she’s raped. It’s victim blaming. Not everyone has the means to escape coercion and theft.”
