Six Points to Ponder

This morning in my email, I received a longer email that included the 6 points listed below. While I don’t disagree necessarily as to how these six points to ponder were presented, as “conundrums” I did think they were worthy of some deeper thought than was presented.

If anybody would like to share some thoughts on these 6 points to ponder, please do so in the comments section below.

Six Points to Ponder – exactly written as I received them: (Unknown author)

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized .

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Rescuing the 21st Century [or Bringing Back Self Determination?]

“Yet somewhere over the next decade a strange reversal took place. Everyone was astonished to learn the future was really the 8th century. In the major capitals of the West it became fashionable to don a keffiyeh, burka or grow a beard. British public figures started converting to Islam. But there was more. Set to challenge the 8th century for supremacy of the coming century was a resurgent 19th. Malthus, in the shape of Global Warming and Marx in the guise of political correctness and “positive rights” were back in intellectual vogue. Socialism, which had collapsed of its own weight in the late 20th century was again resurrected, for the nth time, as the Coming Thing.”<<<Read More>>>

Individual Human Rights

The 1986 Lexicon Encyclopedia coverage of Hegel contains magic. In law school, we are not taught that our system is based on the expression of individualism, the same individualism that Hegel, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Garrett Hardin (author of Tragedy of the Commons) and Alinsky reject. The encyclopedic reference says that Hegelian philosophy split into two wings, the left is Marx’ Communism and the right is essentially fascist nationalism. Too many people in the US think in terms of right/left. But the Communists and Fascists are Hegelian twins who reject individualism, the individual rights that are key to America’s exceptionalism from Communism.

Before reading that, I never thought of our system of having been borne of an expression of individualism. But it makes sense. All the rights are individual rights. And of the individual right of free speech, J. Roberts specifically said in US v. Stevens 559 US 460 (2010) that the benefits of individual free speech outweigh the burden on government. I submit that the benefit of all our sacred individual rights outweigh the burden on government.

In law school, they teach that only certain rights are fundamental and others, not so much. However, a reading of The Federalist And Other Constitutional Papers, Scott, 1902, shows that our founders considered the whole Constitution to be fundamental, and that laws contrary to the Constitution are null and void. That they considered our individual rights to be sacred and referenced a Maker. We are all entitled to sacred and fundamental individual rights, not just the worst criminals in the US.

Despite the pervasive underlying theme of the TV media, the true dichotomy is not between communistic-thinking Democrats and fascist-thinking Republicans, rather both Democrats and Republicans should reject Neo-Nazi Progressivism. As J. Edgar Hoover stated in his 1958 book “Masters of Deceit”, the setting of the classes against each other is an established tactic of the Communists. To Communists, every opponent is a fascist. As long ago as 1951, Ludwig von Mises wrote in “Socialism” that the communists do not respond to diverse views with reason, rather they immediately respond with a personal attack.

Notice how character assassination is used quite publicly. For example, the rancher in Nevada whose preference grazing rights prevailed against all humans, but not against the subhuman tortoise under the 1973 Endangered Species Act, was painted as a racist.

All the rights are individual rights, sacred and fundamental for humans only. The public policy of the Constitution is clearly one of humans first, a public policy that Congress had no authority to alter with the Endangered Species Act. In my view, Nixon capitulated more than just Vietnam to the Communists in 1973. 1973 was a dark year for Nixon. Impeachment was on the horizon. Did he think that Americans turned on him so, now, he turned on America? In 1973 Brezhnev secretly stated to his Communist comrades that Détente would not stop the Communists advancement of their various National liberation movements. And, for his comrades to trust him when he said that he expected to achieve most of their goals by 1985 without violence. (Page 359, Dupes, Kengor, 2010) In 1975, Animal Liberation was published. Some participants in the animal liberation movement seek to abolish private property in animals and the movement contains elements of civil disobedience to achieve its goals.Livy

Ludwig von Mises on Marxist Socialism (Communism)

Ludwig von Mises said in 1951 what I have been trying to say about “planning”, “oversight” and other illegitimate options to the constitutional requirement of the payment of just compensation for the State’s exercise of Eminent Domain.

Whether the private property is land for the prairie chicken, or groundwater for the “common good”, central control abolishes private property ala the Communist Manifesto and as such violates prohibitions against communism.

On the nature of ownership:
“Regarded as a sociological category ownership appears as the power to use economic goods. An owner is he who disposes of an economic good.” Page 37.
“It is the aim of Socialism to transfer the means of production from the private ownership to the ownership of organized society, to the State.”
“If the State takes the power of disposal from the owner piecemeal, by extending its influence over production; if its power to determine what direction production shall take and what kind of production there shall be, is increased, then the owner is left at last with nothing except the empty name of ownership, and property has passed into the hands of the State.” Page 56, “Socialism, An Economic and Sociological Analysis”, von Mises, 1951, reprint 2009)

“It is fundamental that the Constitution is the paramount law of the state and cannot be altered by legislative enactment.” Jones v. Ross, 173 S.W.2d 1022, 1024 (Tex. 1943)

This is not rocket science.

Maybe Maine Hunters Are Subsidizing Wrong Business

The Maine Legislature passed a bill that would allow the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, to steal moose hunting permits from Maine hunters hoping for a chance to hunt a moose, and sell the permits to sporting camp owners that they can use to boost their profits.

Maybe Maine is subsidizing the wrong businesses for the wrong reasons.

Idaho Passes Socialist Bill – Hunters, Ranchers Will Pay

It has become obvious that government will always be business as usual, and here it is the beginning of Stop Government Abuse Week. How much more abusive can it be when fascist government dictates its programs against the will of the people and then the same fascist government forces the servants to pay for the fascist’s perverted abuses?

The Idaho House has passed a bill that would bilk $2 million dollars from taxpayers and spitefully rob the Livestock Industry and Hunters of $110,000 a year to mitigate the corruption and fraud the Idaho Government and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service committed when they forced the introduction of non native wolves on Idaho. After introduction, both governments turned a blind eye to the destruction they now want citizens to pay for. It’s criminal really!

I dealt with this confounded, socialistic, masochistic, idiotic, nonsensical, issue back during its proposal.

Insanity!

Communism: The Idea That Because I’m Breathing I Deserve Something

Who will generate the taxes that will pay for people to sit on the couch? Shapiro said, “This is the big problem with communism and socialism. It is inherently the most selfish philosophy on planet Earth. It’s the idea that because I’m breathing, I deserve something.”<<<Read More>>>
