Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Raeford Davis, a former police officer turned voluntaryist. Herein we discuss being part of the “War on Drugs”, the massive failure of the “War on Drugs”, how making drugs “illegal” creates 80% of the problems in law enforcement, the Soviet era gulag numbers of the modern U’S’ prison system, supporting the use of violence against peaceful people, how prohibition fosters the environment we see around us, using artificial profit motives to pay for violence, the use of force continuum, Ron Paul/Lew Rockwell/Rothbard, how 95% of cops enforcing immoral laws are actually worse than the 5% of “bad cops”, asking doctors if they would lock up asymptomatic people, not getting arrested unless you’re running through a daycare with a bloody hatchet, the process is the punishment, policing for profit, legalization vs. decriminalization, how over 18,000 per year are arrested in SC, abolishing violent/immoral prohibition enforcement, how the East India Trading Company was the original drug cartel, the CIA funding the drug trade, kicking the CIA?FBI out of your country, the balloon effect, the iron law of prohibition, the Harrison Narcotic Act of 1914, addiction rates, how badges don’t grant extra rights, Nancy Pelosi being right (for once), and more!
Instead of giving money to found colleges to promote learning, why don’t they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as good as the Prohibition one did, why, in five years we would have the smartest race of people on earth.
Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we were joined by Michael King, an agorist and panarchist who, among other things, is one the hosts of the Currency of Anarchy Podcast. Herein we discuss Michael’s transition from nationalistic military member to being an activist working towards the abolition of the State, agorism as “act of anarcho-capitalizing”, how Fred Durst owes everyone an apology, muh veteranism, “I fought for your freedom so shut the f**k up!”, breaking down walls, telling people that their god doesn’t exist, steal scraps of the table of your captors, the Luddites as the original minimum wage advocates, bleeding the State vs. starving it, legitimizing the State, ***We lost Michael around this point due to connectivity issues***, tiny houses, buying a ghost town, a big loophole with a prince law, seasteading, begging on the side of the road for property tax money, socialized dog-walking, monopolistic competition, and more!
The frequently discussed question: ‘What ought to be done with the reactionaries, who cannot adapt to liberty?’, would thereby be very simply solved: They may retain their State, as long as they want it. But for us it would become unimportant. Over us it would have no more power than the eccentric ideas of a sect which are of interest to no one else. Thus it will happen, sooner or later. Freedom will break a path for itself, everywhere. Max Nettlau
Please enjoy this recent episode of the Seeds of Liberty Podcast. This week we where joined by Marc Stevens, an anarchist author, radio show host and consultant. Herein we discuss Marc’s path to anarchism, commune-fascists, living in a modern day aristocracy, how government is just men/women forcing us to pay them, forcing people to impose their opinions on their neighbors, how to stop a gang of killers/thieves/liars, non-compliance, the bandwagon effect, fake-ass Star Warsophiles, the herd mentality of the species, never giving a prosecutor a free pass, people mortgaging their homes just to pay for attorney fees, using the Socratic method in a courtroom, stripping away the honey encrusted image of government, “You might be right but this many people can’t be wrong!”, being put on the threat to officer safety list, playing quarterback from the couch, being told the answer to the question “Is it your position that the laws apply to my client based on objective evidence or subjective opinion?” is “It’s a notion.”, asking the question “Do you believe that there should be a ruling class where moral principles do not apply?”, the tale of the girl with no provable citizenship, slaves: chattel and tax, Betrand Russell, when sociopathy gets in the way of humanity, and more!
A man’s natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber, (or by any other name indicating his true character,) or by millions, calling themselves a government.
The forest is nothing without the trees. If it is harmful to the individual, it is harmful to society. It is not a Free Market Economy vs. a Mixed Economy or Command Economy. It is economic slavery governed by a ruling elite vs. peaceful people engaging in voluntary and consensual interaction. A regulation is strangulating the entrepreneur/employer by means of violent legislation. A tax is currency that is extorted from an individual or business by the threat of kidnapping or death should that individual resist. Both taxes and regulations divert precious resources away from production and customer satisfaction in order to placate the political megalomaniacs who will waste that stolen currency on pork barrel projects, boondoggles, and violent occupations, invasions, assassinations, drone strikes, genocide, and overseas war. They drive up prices and sacrifice quality in the marketplace. It is one giant Broken Window Fallacy. It is always a lose-lose proposition.
“Government” is a monopoly on initiated aggression over a given geographical region funded by extortion and propped up by the belief in the myth of authority. Saying that we need “government” to prevent certain businesses from polluting falsely assumes that “government” is not the largest polluter of all by means of the U.S. military and that our sociopathic political control freaks necessarily have the best intentions in mind.
Green Party environmentalists would do well to not forget the pollution of dead bodies and corpses that has littered history whenever “government” gets involved in anything. That is the only pollution that worries me. Once we get that taken care of then we can turn our attention to clean air, potable water, and fertile land. It was not the Anarchists that dropped two atomic bombs on defenseless cities immediately killing thousands, violently interned thousands of Japanese-Americans and German-Americans, exterminated Native Americans by the millions, captured, castrated, raped, and enslaved millions of Africans and Irish for centuries, waged bloody wars, murdered millions of German Jews in gas chambers, starved millions of Chinese and Russians due to misguided Communistic economic policies, killed or maimed 1 million Iraqis, and economically enslaved present generations and the unborn to crippling debt and unfunded liabilities so that we may continue to live in the phony dream of a thriving economy.
These insane megalomaniacs care only about securing their own power and ruling over peaceful people. If they express a concern for the environment it is only because they believe such rhetoric will land them more votes due to popular sentiment of the times. If we lived in the early 1800s you can be damned sure many if not all politicians would be campaigning on the grounds of supporting chain slavery and how best to subjugate the negro. This is not for any concern over slave masters but rather because popular sentiment dictates that a pro chain slavery perspective is likely to get one elected by support of those special interest groups. It is not only that “government” corrupts but also that it attracts the corruptible. If you think you can wear the ring of power and not be corrupted by its influence than you suffer from a destructive delusion far greater than ignorance. It is not that some classes are unfit to rule. All classes are unfit to rule! Vacate the State!
Americans shall never have real, lasting peace so long as we give our allegiance to a king — that is, in our case, to the whole conglomeration of institutionalized exploiters and murderers we know as the State.
