Socialist Security

Jacob Hornberger explains what Social Security is in Amerika, and that libertarians shouldn’t support it. It is a real-time redistribution of wealth scheme. No, you didn’t put money into an account to be given back to you later in life. Even the Social Security Administration website says no such thing. But that myth remains alive today. Social Security is a scheme in which some of Mr. Smith’s paycheck or other earnings are taken away involuntarily by the government and redistributed over to his neighbor Mr. Jones’s grandmother (in addition to the bureaucrats of the federal government). The money that is taken out of your paychecks is put into the U.S. treasury’s general fund, and it is squandered away by CONgress with the rest of the loot.

Some Ideas for Freedom Lovers to Use in Debating Socialists

Thomas DiLorenzo has this blog post showing the connection between Nazism and socialism. After all, with the acronym “NAZI,” when translated into English refers to the “National Socialist German Workers Party.”

DiLorenzo refers to an appendix of the book The Road to Serfdom, by F.A. Hayek, titled, “Nazi Socialism,” in which the Nazis expressed outright anti-capitalistic views. They hated individualism and the free market and loved government central planning, just like today’s socialists (and self-proclaimed “democratic socialists”).

Back to School Articles

Don Boudreaux says there’s no such thing as “the will of the people.”

Jacob Hornberger suggests abolishing campaign contribution limits. When we have economic liberty and private property rights, we can spend our money on whatever we want.

Rev. Ben Johnson asks, Would Jesus take an Uber?

Ron Paul asks, Trump vs. his own administration?

Carey Wedler discusses a judge trying to censor Parkland School’s treatment of Nikolas Cruz.

Jesús Huerta de Soto discusses the problem with historical illustrations of free-banking systems.

And Daniel Mitchell has an article on the link between economic liberty and national prosperity. The commenters have it right, that many people understand the linkage, yet their emotional and indoctrinated ideology nevertheless takes over as they call for more government interventions and intrusions anyway. And by the way, Donald Trump with his tax cuts contributing to much more prosperity, that’s a good thing. But why does he want to reverse the prosperity with the trade tariffs and restrictions? What’s wrong with him?

Having Different Points of View and Telling the Truth Is Not a “Hate Crime”

In 2015 I wrote an article on what freedom of speech means to me. In the article I covered Israel, Bible-believing Christians, the LGBT crowd, the intolerant college snowflakes, the intolerant authoritarian flag-worshiping nationalists who praise the national security state yet condemn whistleblowers for revealing the government’s crimes and corruption, as well as intolerance and tyranny in Muslim countries.

But now it is necessary to get into that stuff again. Freedom of speech, thought and conscience is something worth fighting for.

It’s bad enough that the nationalists and conservatives are anti-freedom of speech, thought and conscience when it comes to their worship of the flag and the military and how dare anyone protest or burn the flag or criticize the beloved military.

But the fascists on the left are bad, too. One problem with why so many people on the left hate free speech and are so intolerant is that schooling has been controlled by the government, federal, state and local. And the young people are brainwashed with “race”-related and sexuality-related ideologies, and they are being conditioned to be intolerant of those who have different points of views or different lifestyles.

One thing that many people, especially the young people, are confused about is the difference between words or expressions and actual physical aggression. The recent demonstration in Washington between the Antifa activists and “Unite the Right” showed us that the Antifa crowd believe that physical violence is acceptable, as long as it is inflicted on “haters,” “fascists” and “racists.”

But, as Dinesh D’Souza pointed out, the Antifa crowd act like fascists, they wear masks to disguise themselves as criminals do, and they punch innocent people. They’re the real brownshirts. Intolerant punks who don’t believe that others have a right to freedom of thought and conscience.

And “racists”? People are saying that “America is a racist country”? Are you kidding me? Who the hell was elected President in 2008? And reelected in 2012? Hmmm? Oh, that’s right. It was Obama, the black guy. So white voters are racists but they voted for Obama.

On CNN after the Washington event, according to Fox News, Chris Cuomo defended the violent faction of Antifa, saying that “when someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, even physical, are they equally wrong as the bigot they are fighting? I argue no.”

Cuomo seems to be implying that just because you disagree with the ignorant and narrow-minded views of some people, it’s okay to physically assault them.

And if someone has views that are traditional or old-fashioned, especially that go against today’s acceptance of sexual deviancy and promiscuity, such views are considered “hate” and should be censored or punished. As I wrote here, thanks to the “Civil Rights” Act, the list of those who may not be discriminated against in private areas has expanded to include lifestyle and personality matters, such as gays and transgenders.

But no, it’s not “hateful” to not want to associate with people whose lifestyle contradicts your beliefs or your way of life. Actually, it seems to me that the real hate is on the side of the social activists, those who do not believe in “Live and Let Live,” and are willing to run to the courts, the armed power of the State, to force others to accept them, or punish the disobedient ones if they don’t comply.

For example, there have been many bakers, florists and photographers who refused to do work for gay weddings. The gay couples who were refused service, and easily got service from other bakers, florists and photographers, still took the rejecting merchants to court.

In Colorado, for instance, the court ordered a Christian baker to pay the gay couple over $100,000 for “emotional” distress and “damages,” even though that couple still got a baker to bake a cake for them, and despite all the emotional distress the couple caused their extortion-victim bakers!

In other words, the narcissists who sued were using the armed power of the State to extort financial payment from the initial bakers to punish them. To punish their views, quite frankly. So these activists on the left do not believe in freedom of thought and conscience.

And even though the Supreme Court ruled on the baker’s side (albeit incoherently), we now have the Colorado LGBT activists once again taking the same baker to court, this time a transgender plaintiff, and the fascists of the Colorado Civil Rights (sic) Commission are helping them. The transgender plaintiff, who is a male who thinks he’s a female, wants to force the baker to bake a “coming out” cake for him. He can go to another baker. But no, this really low-life individual wants to go after some guy for his religious beliefs. The transgender activist is the “hater” here, in my view. (Some fascists on the left actually believe that I shouldn’t even be allowed to write about that story in a manner condemning the activists!)

So the bottom line here is: either A has a right to not associate with or do work for others with whom one doesn’t want to associate or work, or B has a right to force A to associate with or do work for B. In other words, the “Civil Rights” laws are saying that some people have a right to force others to do extra labor to serve them, involuntarily.

You see, the anti-freedom of speech fascists not only are on the side of the transgender guy but they also probably don’t believe that I have a right to express my own views about this case. Like that’s “hateful,” but really the actual hate is coming from this transgender guy who seems to hate Christians and those who don’t accept the transgenders’ gender confusion, which in my view is merely a part of the individual’s general overall confusion about himself as an individual.

In another case, in Canada a woman who went to an abuse shelter for help was placed in a room with a man (a “transgender” man who thinks he’s a woman). The woman complained, and the complaining woman is being cited for “discrimination” for complaining.

It’s an abuse shelter, dammit. For women who have suffered sexual abuse, such as the woman in question. She was made to have to share a room with a “pre-operative male-to-female transgender person,” according to WND.

The article cited by WND describes the transgender person who is male, but the article apparently describes him as female: “the woman is in her late 20s, has facial hair, chest hair, and wears large black combat boots that ‘trigger’ her with their thumping. She said at one communal dinner, the roommate talked about having had a wife in the past, and a pregnant fiancée, and was overheard talking about some unidentified women as ‘hot’ and expressing her preference for Latina women. Hanna said her mannerisms came across as ‘piggish’ and inappropriate.”

No, the man is in his late 20s, has facial hair and chest hair, and expressed his preference for Latina women! This is all nuts. It’s beyond irrational, and a lot of people are accepting it now.

The victim who complained in this case is the one who being made the aggressor, simply because she correctly referred to the male roommate as “him” and “his.” She is cited for “discrimination” for using the wrong pronouns in her complaint! Jeepers, these idiots don’t even know what the word “discrimination” means now. I am afraid that Canada is dripping its idiocy down to Amerika!

So people who use correct grammar, who speak up for themselves and their own personal safety, or who defend traditional ways of life, they are the “haters” and should be condemned, whereas those who try to intrude into others’ peaceful existence with aggression or who threaten them with aggression or with the armed force of the State’s crackpots, they’re okay!

So now peace is violence, violence is peace, slavery is freedom, and freedom is slavery, and all that.

And then there’s the first transgender candidate for governor in Vermont, “Christine Hallquist,” who is a male who thinks he’s a female, and dresses like one.

Now, like in Orwellian Canada, are we going to have writers or reporters brought up on criminal charges for referring to Hallquist as “he” and “him,” which is accurate but probably not what he wants to be referred to as?

So like what the activists are trying to do with the baker cases, will we have the armed force of law to compel people to use certain language, or attempt to compel people into accepting others’ bizarre, irrational behaviors and lifestyles thus violating one’s own personal freedom of thought and conscience, in order to please the personal identity confusion of others?

Hallquist, by the way, hates Christians, apparently. Talk about a bigot. But this is bigotry that is acceptable to those on the left and Antifa. They and Chris Cuomo will not go after anti-Christian bigots.

So I hope that Hallquist loses his election in Vermont. Not because he is “transgender” but because he is a statist, just like most other politicians. (And yes, I would support a “transgender” libertarian candidate, as long as s/he promises to pardon all non-violent innocent people in the prisons or those charged with victim-less “crimes,” and promises not to sign any government spending bills that are funded through tax-thefts, and promises not to sign any tax-theft bills as well, and promises to repeal any laws that violate the lives, liberty or property of innocent people.)

In Editorials, Newspapers Falsely Reporting Donald Trump’s Actual Quotes

Several hundred newspapers across America are publishing editorials today against Donald Trump’s continuing tirades on Twitter and elsewhere against the “fake news” media, and his saying the “fake news” media are the “enemy of the people.”

However, these newspaper outlets’ editorial boards are mistaken about what Trump has been saying. They are claiming that Trump has been saying that “journalists are the enemy of the people.” The editorial boards have been proclaiming, “Journalists are not the enemy of the people!”

I even searched to see if Trump used the word “journalists,” or if he has been saying just “news media.” But no, he has specifically been saying that the “fake news” media are the “enemy of the people.” Not “journalists.”

So, these editorial board writers are either not really paying attention, or they are intentionally changing Trump’s references of “fake news” to “journalists” in a dishonest attempt to continue their campaign of helping the Mueller “investigation” in its cover-up of FBI and DOJ corruption and criminality.

And I am not a Trump supporter, by the way. I just believe in the truth. The news media have been exposed in their shameful un-journalistic propaganda on behalf of the Democrats, on behalf of Hillary Clinton, and on behalf of certain news reporters and editors’ various political agenda-driven biases.

And also, the news media and newspaper editorial boards are saying that Trump is the “threat” to their “freedom of the Press,” when as far as I know Trump has not actually done anything as President to threaten anyone’s freedom of the Press. Except, of course, his saying that pests such as Jim Acosta are “fake news” and cases of the White House banishing certain reporters, if they did that.

However, if anyone was a threat to Americans’ freedom of the Press, it was Barack Obama. Why didn’t the news media report on his threats? Well, some of the news media did, particularly Fox News and the Washington Times.

As I wrote in my recent article on the real “fake news” from the government media,

Regarding Obama’s own crackdown on actual journalism, Fox News reporter James Rosen was accused by the feds of being a “co-conspirator” with State Department leaker Stephen Jin-Woo Kim in violating the Espionage Act.  Rosen’s correspondences with Kim were seized by Obama’s FBI, along with Rosen’s personal email and phone records. The FBI also used records to track Rosen’s visits to the State Department.

Apparently, then-attorney general Eric Holder went “judge-shopping” to find a judge who would approve subpoenaing Rosen’s private records, after two judges rejected the request.

Commenting on James Rosen and the FBI’s abuse of powers, Judge Andrew Napolitano observed that “this is the first time that the federal government has moved to this level of taking ordinary, reasonable, traditional, lawful reporter skills and claiming they constitute criminal behavior.”

And there was the Obama administration’s going after then-CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, possibly for her reporting on Benghazi and Fast and Furious. Attkisson finally resigned from CBS news out of frustration with the company’s alleged pro-Obama bias and with CBS’s apparently not airing her subsequent reports.

In 2013 CBS News confirmed that Attkisson’s computers had been “accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions.” In 2015 Attkisson sued the Obama administration, claiming to have evidence which proves the computer intrusions were connected to the Obama DOJ.

In Attkisson’s latest lawsuit update, after her computer was returned to her following the DOJ Inspector General’s investigation, her forensics team now believes her computer’s hard drive was replaced by a different one.

So has Donald Trump been doing these things to news journalists engaged in investigative reporting on his incompetence and corruption? As far as I know, no.

In my searching for Trump’s tweets there are few times that he has actually said “enemy of the people.” I found this tweet from February, 2017, in which Trump tweeted, “The FAKE NEWS media (failing nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” And this tweet from July 19, 2018: “The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media. I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear……..” And this tweet from August 5, 2018: “The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE. I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!”

Now, I searched feverishly to find a tweet or utterance in which Trump referred to “news journalists are the enemy of the people,” or “news media” without putting “fake news” in there, but I could not find such references.

Regarding the “fake news,” as I referenced in my aforementioned article, I wrote: “According to one NYT former reporter, the Times has been a “propaganda megaphone” for war. Also a partner with the CIA to promote Obama’s reelection bid.” I would put those things under the category of “fake news,” no?

And I provided many examples of “fake news,” especially from the 2016 campaign on behalf of Hillary Clinton, and the 2008 campaign on behalf of Obama. Such examples included CNN contributor Donna Brazile giving Hillary questions that would be asked at the CNN Town Hall, and Maggie Haberman and Mark Liebovich of the New York Times cahooting with the Clinton campaign on which propaganda to feed the readers and at what precise times. And the “JournoLists” from the 2008 campaign who showed that they intentionally wouldn’t report on stories that made Obama look bad, such as his relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

As I wrote in my article,

It was very shortly after the November, 2016 Presidential election that the Washington Post published an article on a “Russian propaganda effort to spread ‘fake news’ during the election.” To escalate the media’s censorship campaign perhaps?

The campaign against “fake news” coincided with Obama minions at FBI, DOJ and CIA apparently panicking over a possible Trump presidency and their allegedly abusing their powers to attempt to take down Trump.

So I believe that this current denial of “fake news” by the mainstream media is probably a continuing part of the campaign to make stuff up about Trump-Russia “collusions,” which never existed (and is the actual “fake news”), and label as “fake news” the actual investigative reporting on the FBI/DOJ/NSA/CIA corruption and criminality and those apparatchiks’ attempts to take down a duly-elected President.

When the members of the Press become propagandists for a particular political party or on behalf of particular politicians or a certain political agenda at the expense of the truth, then they certainly shouldn’t call themselves “journalists.” They then become purveyors of “fake news.”

Google, U.S. Military, and Unhealthy Religious Worship of the State

Laurence Vance asks, Is Google better than the U.S. military?

Dr. Vance cites Google’s relationship with the NSA, and Google’s tracking and surveillance of its users, etc. But Vance also cites an article by former George W. Bush flunky Marc Thiessen, who said that “Google should be ashamed.”

No, says Thiessen, Google shouldn’t be ashamed because of its illicit surveillance and intrusions and its enmeshment with the evil State. No, Google should be ashamed because it pulled out of a Pentacon artificial intelligence program, “Project Maven,” after a letter was signed by thousands of Google employees who didn’t want to do evil by working with the Pentacon.

Vance concludes:

Last time I checked, Google did not do any of these things and bill the taxpayers for the privilege of doing so:

  • Make widows and orphans
  • Fight senseless wars
  • Invade other countries
  • Occupy other countries
  • Intervene in other countries
  • Fight foreign wars
  • Kill civilians and dismiss it as collateral damage
  • Transport insurgents and detainees to torture-friendly countries
  • Carry out drone strikes that miss their targets
  • Police the world
  • Fight unnecessary wars
  • Destroy foreign industry, culture, and infrastructure
  • Unleash sectarian violence
  • Take sides in civil wars
  • Fight immoral wars
  • Spread democracy at the point of a gun
  • Engage in offense and call it defense
  • Kill foreigners
  • Enforce no-fly zones in other countries
  • Fight undeclared wars
  • Torture foreigners
  • Bomb other countries
  • Maim and disable foreigners
  • Fight unjust wars
  • Launch preemptive strikes
  • Help carry out an aggressive, reckless, and belligerent U.S. foreign policy
  • Create terrorists, insurgents, and enemies of the United States

As a consequence, no one at Google ever died in vain, for a lie, for a mistake, or for the military/industrial complex.

Of course Google is better than the U.S. military, which is nothing but a global force for evil.

A lot of people seeing that still don’t understand those points. A lot of people worship the military, because of all the indoctrination they were fed throughout their growing up years and during their continuing adulthood. But I’m sure that even some militarist sheeple would admit that Laurence Vance makes some good points nevertheless.

Most people, it seems, view the U.S. government and its armed forces as gods. They react very emotionally to people who challenge their myths, their worship of the State, and their superstitions associated with those things. In fact, Larken Rose calls it The Most Dangerous Superstition.

Here is a compilation of some talks by Larken Rose on the government-worship cult that causes so many people to fall to their knees in obedience to the armed enforcers and soldiers of the evil State. Rose makes some good points, especially about how a lot of people just can’t tolerate hearing challenges to the legitimacy of their beloved State and especially its military.

A WARNING, though, on this video: It contains some graphic footage of police beating people, of dead bodies (murdered by the violence of the State) being shoveled around. So, it might be upsetting to some people. Actually it is a display of what the State really is, which should make everyone uncomfortable.

Neanderthals on the Left, Neanderthals on the Right – Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off

The leftists of Antifa have gathered once again alongside the “rightists” of “Unite the Right” in Washington.

Antifa is a group of anti-capitalist, anti-freedom-of-speech, government supremacists who support control over the government to impose authoritarian, socialist controls over the people. I don’t think they describe themselves that way, but that’s my interpretation.

Anti-capitalist? How do you think your iPhone came to be? And your car if you have one, and your TV? You think socialism brought those things into existence? Nope. The free market, baby.

Besides being ignorant, the Antifa people also support using aggression and violence against innocents. Too many times now I’ve heard about Antifa people attacking and assaulting some guy with a MAGA hat even though he was being peaceful.

And the “Unite the Right” people are a group of white nationalists, neo-Confederates and Nazis or neo-Nazis.

But, as Dinesh D’Souza has claimed, the “Unite the Right” organizer, Jason Kessler, is really a leftist, given his time with Occupy Wall Street and his being an Obama supporter. So it seems to me that Kessler might be a leftist crackpot who is organizing these “Unite the Right” events in order to claim that there are more white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Amerika than there really are.

D’Souza also claims that the other major “Unite the Right” player, Richard Spencer, is a Wilsonian progressive era collectivist and a white identitarian who questions the idea of individualism and individual rights.

And I heard on Glenn Beck this morning that the Antifa crowd in Washington were shouting their demands to be heard (in their message of taking down the system, but really they went themselves to be in control over everything and everyone), yet they were attacking the news media. Literally attacking them, attempting to grab cameras away from media people, etc.

Glenn Beck was saying that they couldn’t play excerpts of some of the Antifa-screaming audio because of all the swear words. Now, if those little creeps of Antifa want to get their message out and to be taken seriously, perhaps they can consider using less profanity, perhaps behave a little more decently toward others. Sadly, many of them were probably not even potty-trained until third grade (if they ever were). Sad.

So, like Antifa’s fellow travelers in the Democrat party and the college campus hystericals, they also want to censor free expression and freedom of the Press.

But, as Joe Wolverton at the New American reports, it’s not just the extremists on the left who want to shut down non-mainstream news outlets and websites. In a recent poll, 43 % of Republicans stated that “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” The poll doesn’t seem to define “bad behavior,” so I assume the subjects view “bad behavior” as whatever Donald Trump determines to be “bad,” or whatever the local police or military determine, as we know what devotion most obedient Rethuglicans and conservatives have for armed officials of the gubmint.

In the same poll, 23% of the Rethugs said they believe that “President Trump should close down mainstream news outlets such as CNN, the Washington Post, and the New York Times.” As I was saying in this post and this post just recently, today’s conservatives don’t really have a capacity for long-term thinking or planning.

If you give the current President, Trump, the one you like, the power to shut down news media outlets you don’t like, then the power will still be there when he leaves office, so the next tyrant that you don’t like, such as Hillary or Evita Ocasio-Cortez, will shut down your beloved Fox News, the New York Post, or the Daily Caller. But conservatives and nationalists are too busy crying over football players “disrespecting the flag” and other who-cares issues that they are really just as clueless as the ones on the left.

It’s the same thing with the conservatives and nationalists’ government Wall on the border they really believe will solve the immigration problem. When the Wall is built and your beloved Trump leaves office, down the line a worse administration will use the Wall to keep the people in, not out. “Oh, that’s absurd”? Well, we already have had Senators like Charles Schumer and his ilk installing or attempting to install an expat-enslavement law, in which those who leave the country will still owe the U.S. government part of their earnings, even though they are no longer a citizen. This is like the Fugitive Slave Act in which if a slave runs away to his freedom the ones who attempt to help him will be arrested for aiding and abetting or “harboring” a runaway slave.

But as bad as the Antifa crowd, Black Lives Matter, “Democratic Socialists,” LGBT groups and other leftist organizations are in terms of their lack of respect for the individual rights of others, for the persons and property of others and lack of general decency, the conservatives and nationalists are just as bad, in my view.

Another example of the conservatives and nationalists’ fixation in short-sightedness is their support for the U.S. government’s expansion of its apparatus and military bases overseas, and of the wars that U.S. government started in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the criminal drone strikes and murders of innocent civilians overseas. All that U.S. military aggression into other territories and murders of foreigners does is provoke the foreigners into retaliation against us. That is exactly what 9/11 was an example of.

At the time of 9/11, if anyone brought up the first war on Iraq started by George H.W. Bush in 1991 and the sanctions throughout the 1990s that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands that led to 9/11, the conservatives and nationalists would say one is “blaming America,” and being “unpatriotic,” a “traitor,” “not supporting our President at a time of war,” and all that nonsense. That was because many people had no memory of what our military did to Iraq and the Middle East throughout the 1990s prior to 9/11, or they thought it was a good thing (!).

At a debate in South Carolina during the 2012 Presidential campaign, Ron Paul suggested that the Golden Rule in foreign policy would be the moral way and would work for us. We don’t want other governments invading and bombing our country, so we ought not have our government and military invading and bombing other countries.

But the neanderthals didn’t like hearing that. Listen to the True Believers in American Exceptionalism neanderthals “Booo” Ron Paul and his wise suggestion:

Sadly, the people on the left don’t care about the wars our government has started and the bombing and murders of innocents it continues to do overseas. All the people on the left seem to care about are race and race-baiting, gay power and transgender dysforia, climate change and free stuff for everyone.

And the people on the conservative side mainly care about their worship of the Amerikan flag, abortion, and preventing foreigners from coming into “our” country and starting businesses and employing workers.

The Moral Relativism It Takes to Defend the Atomic Bombings of Japan

Edward Curtin has this article on the satanic nature of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

These criminal acts by the U.S. government are continuously defended by conservative talk radio personalities and millions of their ditto-head listeners, as well as millions of liberal and conservative sheeple alike, just as they defend most of the U.S. government’s targeting and murders of innocent human beings overseas (as well as Honest Abe’s targeting and mass murders of innocents right here in good ol’ US of A). Many of them still defend the U.S. government’s invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, and the U.S. government’s invasion of Iraq the first time in 1991. No moral scruples there, even though the so-called conservatives are the loudest mouths in regards to “moral values.”

On the bombings in Japan, they cry, oh, the officials told us that if “we” didn’t bomb and murder 200,000 innocent human beings, then many more U.S. soldiers would have been killed. Hmmm, let’s sacrifice innocent human beings to save military soldiers. And that’s based on a prediction of what might happen if such mass murder didn’t take place. So, for the moral relativists of conservative talk radio, the end justifies the means. And they’re concerned about abortion.

Sadly, a lot of people are brainwashed after 12-16 years of government-controlled schooling, indoctrinated to worship the State as their real god. And the rulers of the State must be obeyed and believed when they tell us why we should let them send our sons and brothers, fathers and sisters off to war to die or kill others for no good reason.

And also a lot of people are short-sighted. For instance, there probably would have been no Pearl Harbor invasion had FDR not provoked the Japanese with his oil embargo, an act of war with “crippling” sanctions leading to starvation of Japanese. There would probably have been no World War II had Woodrow Wilson not gotten the U.S. involved in World War I which extended the first World War and replaced treaties that were already in the works and Wilson’s acts thus gave way to the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. And there wouldn’t have been a 9/11 had George H.W. Bush not invaded Iraq in 1991, bombed and destroyed water and sewage treatment centers and imposed sanctions causing the Iraqis to have to use untreated water leading to skyrocketing disease and the deaths of hundreds of thousands by the mid-1990s and several more hundred thousand by the year 2000.

And now, the short-sighted criminals of the U.S. government, Harry Truman, Eisenhower and all the rest with their actual use of the atomic bombs on a civilian population, has led to world-wide insecurity, fears of “crazy people in Iran and North Korea” (U.S. rulers are not crazy?) using nuclear bombs against innocents. I think the ignorant hystericals of conservative talk radio have no idea what I’m talking about here in this post.

And a 2015 New American article on Windows 10 being malware, an “operating system that reports back to its developers supplying them with personally identifiable information about you including your name, e-mail address, postal address, phone number, passwords, password hints, age, and gender, as well as your browsing history, address book, calendar, the contents of your e-mails, and access to all your files including pictures, videos, documents, and anything else stored on your hard drive…”

Thanks, Big Tech.
