UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http://ncnblogger.wordpress.com/ (this will remain as an archive and be damn sure I will still read all your wonderful blogs as ever). Those who have linked me please update the link. Thanks all. Looking forward to continued blogging in the future.

Today's news is that Osama is dead. Well it's sort of 10 year old news, but there you go. Supposedly one of the very mind controlled special forces shot him in the head, although given the notorious nature of the invading forces' willingness to kill someone then play dress up afterwards, who knows it may have been a woman who they drew a beard on with marker pen. Photo looks 'shopped but what do I know. Then again corpses just like your TV dinner keep very well in the freezer...lol...

Anyway I'm off to get kidney dialysis using only sand and donkey piss while being hunted by all the satellites and spy planes that a trillion dollar military budget can buy, for ten years. Ciao


PS does this mean the war on terror is over now and 'we' can come home and dismantle the police state and not have RFID passports and iris scans and creepy wiretaps anymore? (Comptroller says no)

Liberty

What does it mean to be free? This video gives a short introduction to the philosophy of liberty.



I believe we have natural rights, that is to say each individual is sovereign and cannot be trampled upon, as demonstrated above life, liberty, and property should belong to the sovereign individual and not be violated. Government cannot endow you with rights, it can only trespass upon and violate them - declarations of human rights in law only serve to notify the government of certain aspects of our natural rights we are not willing to relinquish to the authority.

Interpreted correctly, it seems to me that ultimately, anarcho-capitalism is the most moral state of governance. I personally take a more moderate view on the state - it would be possible to get rid of the state completely, but humans form for themselves government in the absence of an authority, so it could be argued to be a pointless task to totally abolish the state.

Anarchy is something of a misconception in my opinion - in the absence of what we call 'government', people do govern themselves (rather than there being no government at all). There are laws, since each individual makes laws for themselves, and perhaps communities take it upon themselves to deal with those who have committed crime, in which case government exists at a very localised level anyway.

I believe in localised government, the more local the better generally, though the reality of the world and the cause of military defence in particular inhibit this kind of government from forming. Thus using a broader government (at the current national level) for the common defence (and as little else as possible) is one compromise that would be reasonable.

So, except for fundamentalist anarchists, we all trade liberty for security (to paraphrase Ben Franklin), on a regular basis. The difference which the US Founding Fathers understood, is that we at the very least needed a clear-cut declaration of "essential" (as Franklin said in the above quote) freedoms that shall not be restricted upon, such that the state that they created does not grow out of control.

But, as Keith Olbermann explained in 2006, those freedoms are...ahem...wait, where did they go?

(see 5:20 for the "Bill of Right".)


"The Brutal Police State of the UK"



How can we credibly oppose what the Taliban do, for example, after we idly rationalise the evil of our own tyranny?

...and yes, Chemtrails interfere with weather

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?

It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?

Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!

No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)

I'm Already Against The Next War
Stop the propaganda before it's here. If some kind of terror attack happens in the West, Iran probably didn't do it. They have no history of imperialism and would be suicidal to attack the West. Think who benefits. No bombing of Iran.
