When Doublethinking About the American Government’s Bipartisan Efforts to Destroy Liberty, Expect a Heavy Dose of Truth

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Doublethinking About the American Government’s Bipartisan Efforts to Destroy Liberty“…

Rayn: If you think liberty isn’t the enemy of both RepubliConArtists and DemoCrackPots… “you’re gonna have a bad time.”

H.R. 6061 (109th): Secure Fence Act of 2006, passed 80-19 by the Senate, under the Bush administration:

Notable “yea” votes include: Barack Obama (D-IL), Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Chuck Shumer (D-NY), Joe Biden (D-DE), Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Christopher Dodd (D-CT), among others…

“Want to know how this guy was able to authorize the wall with just his signature?
Because these guys voted in favor of building it while in the Senate”

Greg L.: True

Katherine C.: Not the same thing. It’s one thing to reinforce a border and another to build a wall and use it metaphorically to indicate that the US is racist and xenophobic.

Leftists Are Amused by a “Joke” Meme Involving the American Government’s War Crimes

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after he shared a meme from here

Sam B.:

"Biden: Showed Trump the drone strike controls in your top desk drawer Obama: That's an Etch-a-Sketch Biden: Yup"

“Biden: Showed Trump the drone strike controls in your top desk drawer
Obama: That’s an Etch-a-Sketch
Biden: Yup”

(note that upon sharing this meme to his wall, Sam soon receives 9 “likes” and 7 “hahas” from his Facebook friends)

RaynHa! Good one! Super funny! Nothing like a clever joke involving the American government’s War Crimes!

Obama-Led Drone Strikes Kill Innocents 90% of the Time in Afghanistan, in Just a Single Five-Month Campaign:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/civilian-deaths-drone-strikes_us_561fafe2e4b028dd7ea6c4ff

When combining the officially-acknowledged, yet incomplete, government-reported numbers of casualties from drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and Afghanistan, the most modest possible totals show that between 616 – 1,258 civilians were killed, which includes between 186 – 241 children.

Get the Data: Drone Wars:
https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/category/projects/drones/drones-graphs/

During Obama’s presidency, between 449 – 926 of the above-mentioned civilians casualties occurred (about 72.9% – 73.6% of the totals), which includes between 80 – 112 children (about 43 % – 46.5% of the totals). This is just more bipartisan criminality taking place in the ludicrous, endless “War on Terror.”

Oh, and this doesn’t even include US drone operations occurring in Iraq, Libya and Syria…

Inspired to Promote Voluntaryism After Yet Another Viewing of Charlie Chaplin’s Famous Speech in “The Great Dictator”

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Katherine C…

Katherine C.: A chilling plea from the past.

Charlie Chaplin’s Incredible Speech:

RaynNo Masters No Rulers!

"As for politics, I'm an Anarchist. I hate goverments and rules and fetters. Can't stand caged animals. People must be free." - Charlie Chaplin

(Artwork originally located here, upon the Facebook page,Speak for Yourself“)

Katherine C.: We take for granted the comforts we have with government. Safety being one of them. I know there are exceptions, but we’ve talked about this before. You never gave me a good solution as to stopping serial killers and the like from attacking people that can’t fight back. Your only solution is private security and god knows how they’d get paid because there’d be no money, so I’m assuming we’d revert back to a barter economy.

Rayn:

Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency ask the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But, conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.” - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Prejudice and Elitism of the Left is Showing – Round 2!

The following debate, “The Prejudice and Elitism of the Left is Showing,” which originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Daniel Sv, and concluded days ago, was suddenly reignited, after Trump won the election for US President…

Rayn: Your prejudice and elitism are showing, Daniel F… Talk about “vile filth”…

Daniel F.: I take that comment back – clearly I grossly underestimated the collective stupidity of this country, as this year’s election has clearly shown.

Rayn: But… muh “democracy”!

In the 110th Congress, people voted for the party line 91% of the time. Only 20.9% of the U.S. population voted for Barack Obama in 2012.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong..?

Rayn: Next time, vote harder! 😉 Democracy, for the win! 🙂

RaynBoth major candidates were dangerous, pro-war pigs, and yet, Killary had a very well-established history of major war-hawking whenever in positions of State power that few seemed to acknowledge…

I wouldn’t trust either lizard to so much as babysit a pet rock! 😀

Daniel F.: Well thanks to all the imbeciles in this country democracy is probably dead, or going to be in short order.

You will probably find what ends up replacing it even less to your liking

Rayn: Democracy, itself, is a dead, obsolete concept, to me. I do not like it, whatsoever, so I can’t possibly find any replacement “less to my liking.” And, in truth, this country is supposed to be a Republic – though, that has failed, like they always do.

Rayn: DemoRepubliCrats: (n) a group of Americans who vote to centralize their moral bankruptcy, murderous criminality, and insatiable desire for unrestricted control over the lives of others, into the shape of a violent, coercive, non-corporeal, unaccountable military-industrial plutocracy referred to as the “State,” largely in a legal effort to shield all individual members of said cabal from judicial prosecution, by diffusing and ultimately obscuring all personal accountability and private responsibility from the equation, while simultaneously creating a “legal” pretext for severely punitive, “State”-based enforcement of both 100% sponsorship for, and 100% participation in, said criminal racket, through use of extortion, conscription, violence, theft, kidnapping and imprisonment – all to the extreme detriment of the peaceful, non-consenting individuals who either currently live, or were originally born, within the imaginary borders of the “State.”

Debating the Role of Demagoguery in the Holocaust

The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after my friend, and fellow Autistic self-advocate, Jason Ross, posted artwork being shared by the page, “The Free Thought Project“…

Jason R.:

"Remember, it didn't start with the gas chambers. It started with intolerance & hate speech and when people stopped caring, because desensitized mindlessly obedient and turned a blind eye."

“Remember, it didn’t start with the gas chambers. It started with intolerance & hate speech and when people stopped caring, because desensitized mindlessly obedient and turned a blind eye.”

Jason R.: That’s how America does things and why Trump got a platform in this election 😐

Rayn: Trump AND Clinton, actually…

As I wrote in my article, “Democracy and Demagoguery Make a Perfect Team!”:

“DemoCrackPot bigotry is different than the RepubliConArtist variety, because… ???

‘The’ Russians! ‘The’ Mexicans! ‘The’ Muslims! Oh, my! Obviously, these ‘problems’ require massively tyrannical government ‘solutions’! 😉

Democracy and Demagoguery … What a team!”

http://acidrayn.com/2016/10/22/democracy-and-demagoguery-make-a-perfect-team/

Katherine C.: It actually didn’t start that way. It started with a monarchy that imposed a useless four year war, and a very tired, very broke people who had no idea what would happen or what was happening half the time. The Nazi party largely played down the anti-Semitic sentiments until they already well in power and after Hindenburg died. Hindenburg was the president and the only one with the ability to fire Hitler. They played nice till after that.

Katherine C.: And from the getgo they intimidated the hell out of people. And not just people, but their families. You’re about to have a kid. If u by merely speaking out against government would land u in prison and ur family killed, what would u do? And this was applied to all Germans, not just the Jews. It’s easy to blame people but u gotta go a little deeper to understand that they were just regular human beings, and the Nazis were lightning fast and brutal.

RaynJason actually posted this graphic here to my wall  this time, Katherine – although I once posted it to my wall, a while back. And, the meme is a reference to the treatment of Jewish people by the Nazi party, under Hitler. It is an attempt to remind its audience that the Holocaust didn’t start with gas chambers, but with Hitler’s scapegoating minority groups (most especially Jewish people) for the complex problems Germany was facing. Germany’s problems, themselves, absolutely began even before Hitler’s rise to power, but that is of little consequence to the theme of the meme, which is to reveal the basic dynamics of demagoguery as a route to mass murder. Historically, demagogues typically seize upon any number of serious problems their nation is facing to begin their tyrannical, and often murderous, rises to power.

Also, from almost the moment Hitler became Chancellor of the National Socialist Workers Party, in January of 1933, he began to enact antisemitism as a matter of State policy – transforming the country into “Nazi Germany” (or the “Greater German Reich”). From the Reichstag fire in February of 1933, to the “Enabling Act” of March 1933, the groundwork was laid for the enacting of Germany’s April 1933 racial hygiene laws, and at the same time, the laws against non-Aryan civil service. These major foundations were established a full year before Hindenburg died. Feel free to “go a little deeper,” yourself, and read about the sequence of events here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht#Early_Nazi_persecutions

You can claim the German citizens to be “very broke people who had no idea what would happen or what was happening half the time,” and sympathize with them as “intimidated” victims of the State, but you should also understand that Hitler actually committed none of the State’s 12 million murders himself, and his cabinet and officers did very little of the killing, either. It was an entire country of military draftees, mostly men, who were “following orders” that did so. And, they ALL share in the responsibility of the crimes of the State. You can rest assured that during the Nuremberg Trials against the crimes of the Nazi party, all attempts of soldiers, and even Nazi party officers, to shift blame onto their superiors, and onto Hitler, were fully rejected by the entire international community as a legitimate form of defense. Then, truly recognize that these soldiers, whether “intimidated” or otherwise, actually had superior numbers, and being armed by the State, itself, could have easily risen up against the Nazi party, but instead, remained either nationalistic, and apathetic to detractors and outsiders, in their subservience to a “greater cause.” In taking this role, those who participated in the crimes of the State felt no morally responsible for their actions, enabling them to shift the blame onto those giving the criminal orders.

Herman Goering at the Nuremberg Trials, famously said, “Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

To answer your question, “if u by merely speaking out against government would land u in prison and ur family killed, what would u do?” Man… you really don’t know or understand me, whatsoever. You want to get me put on a list, or something? LOL! 🙂 Fine. I have no fear of it, and will reveal my plan. Here’s what I would do. I would write down all of my protests against government, then publish them on a website (hint, hint… 😉 ), or I’d post them, in print, and distribute them among my friends, and any interested parties, if the first option wasn’t available. I’d also speak about my grievances often, to any who bring up the topic. Then, I’d sit in my home, armed and ready, just waiting for the jack-booted criminals to dare come falsely imprison me, or take my family hostage. BOOM! Instant martyrdom! My family and I get to go to our eternal home with our souls still intact, completely secure in the knowledge that we were not captured by savages, who would likely torture us, abuse us, brainwash my child, or force us all to commit egregious crimes against other human beings, to “save” what would become very miserable “lives.” The soul, and the peaceful free-will that defines it, is priceless, while the body is just its vessel. My soul, the souls of my family members, and all souls, in general, are bound by this equation. Best believe that I would not give up my free-will guided soul for a body that I no longer even have sovereignty over. That is not “life,” nor is that “living,” so I would save literally NOTHING, and lose almost EVERYTHING, in making such a deal! It’s a slave’s bargain, and I would never consent to such a pathetic arrangement! My huband can attest to this truth about me, easily, and I can even tag some a family member, and a friend to verify my long-standing views, if you’re not convinced. Previously, in March of 2009, when I was abducted and falsely imprisoned by State criminals for possessing a non-toxic plant, I immediately began a hunger strike, with no plans to desist. My family manged to have me released just three days later, but if I had remained in a cage, I would have been perfectly content to die, knowing I was innocent, and that my kidnappers were merely criminals, with no real power over me. I know my Father, and where I came from, so death has no sting, for me.

I know. I know. Not everyone has my convictions to resist Nazi-like tyranny. So, take the example of Denmark, and learn the intriguing lesson of how they cleverly fought Nazi terror…
