The Simple Truth

We do not support freedom, anywhere.  we have the world’s largest military that secures the human and natural resources of other nations for our corporations to harvest.  Their profits are funneled through the banking centers that then rig the political game to make sure nobody challenges the rigged game that they gained profit and power from.  We certainly do not support freedom here at home and our constitutional rights are being stolen while wealth is being sucked up to those at the top.

Billy Deily on Anarchism

There are times when I come across something that so encapsulates what I’m thinking that I find it a better use of this space to share that those words than to reinvent the wheel. Today, that happened again. Here are those words.


“The answer is to govern YOURSELF, and allow me to do the same. If I harm you, or you harm me, we each have a right to defend ourselves from that. But what NO ONE has the right to do is say “There are things in this world that might, possibly, under certain circumstances, in some nondescript point in the future, perhaps cause harm or offense to you or someone else. So, because of this, myself and a small group of others hereby declare that we have the right to rule over all the rest of you for your own protection. We also declare the right to demand regular payment from you to cover the cost of enforcing said rule and protection. This is NOT optional…we’ve drafted a very official looking piece of paper (it’s written in calligraphy, so you know to take it seriously!) as a contract establishing all of this…a contract to which you will be automatically considered beholden to from birth, regardless of whether you actually consent or not. If you resist our services or refuse to pay us for them, we will send our blue-suited winged monkeys to arrest and imprison you. If you resist imprisonment, our blue-suited winged monkeys have been given the ok to kill you. Again, this is all for your own protection and totally NOT a scam to allow the ruling class to funnel taxes into their own pockets and create monopolistic market structures for the filthy rich to avoid free market competition . – Yours truly, Every government ever in the history of forever-ever ” —Billy Deily

The Jupiter Complex

During the Allied bombing raids on Germany at the end of World War II, many people worried that London and Washington had developed a “Jupiter Complex,” which historian Paul Johnson describes as “the notion of the Allies as righteous gods, raining retributive thunderbolts on their wicked enemies.” The Allies concluded, as Johnson explains, that strategic bombing “was the best way to make the maximum use of their vast economic resources, while suffering the minimum manpower losses.”

Lustration

Lustration is the process of making something clear or pure, usually by means of a propitiatory offering. The term is taken from the Roman lustrum purification rituals. The term has been adapted to the purge of government officials once affiliated with the Communist system in Central and Eastern Europe. Various forms of lustration were employed in post-communist Europe. The concept might resemble de-Nazification in post-World War II Europe, and the de-Ba’athification in post-Saddam Hussein Iraq,
