Critical Thinking is Mandatory in the Quest for Enlightenment

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Voluntaryism is Freedom,” which I originally posted to my own wall in June of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, along with commentary…

“Statism: The brilliant idea that we give a small group of people the right to kidnap, steal from, and kill us, so that we can be ‘protected’ from people who kidnap, steal from, and kill us.”

My Commentary: Critical thinking is mandatory in the quest for enlightenment.

(note: though I previously shared a slightly different version of this artwork in April of 2014, within my post, “The Ridiculous Logic of Statism,” I still felt compelled to offer up an alternative commentary when I saw it again, due to the inspiring nature of these words)

Without an Injured Party, No Legitimate Law Has Been Broken

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Police The Police,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Kelly Thomas: No Conviction, Sandra Bland: No Conviction, Eric Garner: No Conviction, Phil Castile: No Conviction, Freddie Gray: No Conviction, James Boyd: No Conviction, Tamir Rice: No Conviction, Alton Sterling: No Conviction

My Commentary: No worries. Just keep voting harder! That’ll show the establishment you really mean business!

Something to think about: without an injured party, no *legitimate* law has actually been broken. This is the origin of common law (and the foundation of common sense). Meanwhile, most of the victims pictured here only ended up being murdered by agents of the government *after* first being detained and harassed using the erroneous pretext of some victimless crime, or another… The State is the ultimate centralization of coercion, tyranny and violence, and represents the cult religion of the Accuser.

No Victim, No Crime! #NoVictimNoCrime

Zappa’s Words of Wisdom

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Vote 4 Nobody, Nobody Tells the Truth,” which I originally posted to my wall in June of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it to the wall of family, along with commentary…

“Politics is the entertainment division of the military industrial complex.” – Frank Zappamus

My Commentary: Some words of wisdom from Zappa…

But, Without Government, Who Would Run a Legal Extortion Racket that Disenfranchises the Self-Employed?

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

() In over 10,000 cities in all 50 states, the online platform Rover offers pet owners the ability to connect with walkers and sitters with the ease that characterizes the growing sharing economy. There are over 100,000 people who earn money by working with the platform and Rover is just one of many “pet sharing” sites.

My Commentary: But, without government, who would run a legal extortion racket that not only disenfranchises individuals from self-employment, but also artificially eliminates competition for larger businesses, in the process?

America’s Presidential Precedence of Murdering Civilians

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

One Lizard. Two Lizard. Red Lizard. Blue Lizard.
Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump

If You’re Wondering Why Trump Can Just Bomb Countries, Ask Obama, Bush, and Clinton:

(Darius Shahtahmasebi) If you read closely between the warped headlines of the establishment media, you will eventually find the truth about Trump’s decision to strike the Syrian government: it was illegal.

Yet most mainstream media outlets clearly supported the strike. Many US allies also supported the strike, including so-called peaceful countries such as New Zealand, which stated the strikes were a“proportional response to a specific incident – the chemical weapons atrocity.” New Zealand also said they would consider sending troops to Syria if the American government requested them.

My Commentary: Spare us the theatrics, and please don’t bother feigning indignation if you were silent while any of these lizards were busy murdering civilians… You’re not virtuous, you’re not concerned with protecting the innocent, and you’re really only embarrassing yourself with your pathetic display of selective outrage, hypocrite…
