Oh, the Anarchy!

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

"There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. One year, a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. "How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?," the reporter asked. "Why, sir," said the farmer. "Didn't your know? The wind picks up the pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grew inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn."

My Commentary: Oh, the Anarchy!

Does Refusal of Corrupt State Control of Gigantic, Nationwide, Compulsory-Based Systems of Retirement, Disability and Medical Insurance Automatically Indicate Lack of Desire for Free-Market Version of These Services?

The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Brooke N…

Brooke N.:

“So you want the government to ‘stop giving poor people free stuff’? Funny how you don’t care about the $70 billion a year we spend on subsidizing Wall St. Banks, the $38 billion in subsidies given to oil companies, the $2.1 trillion that Fortune 500 corporations are stashing abroad to avoid paying U.S. taxes, and the $153 billion a year we spend to subsidize McDonald’s and Walmart’s low-wage workers?”

Gene K.: And another thing….. some of the “Reddest” states receive the greatest amounts of welfare…… and HATE that people get “handouts” from the government…. I need somebody to explain that logic to me….

Brooke N.: Not logic, greed and blindness. I know Libertarian people who are on Disability and want to get rid of Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid. I don’t think there’s any to accuse this of being logic.

Gene K.: Yes, I know a lot of people of many persuasions that hate anything that smacks of socialized medicine. It is like they think that medical bills are paid by the Medical Bill Fairy and are not subsidized by all of the people using the medical care system.

Folks, there ain’t no free ride. Sorry. There. Just. Isn’t.

Brooke N.: But it’s possible to make life a little easier for 99% of the people instead of utterly effortless for the 1% 🙂

Rayn:

“We disapprove of State education. Then, the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a State religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a State-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality.
It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the State to raise grain.” – Frederic Bastiat, The Law

Discussing the Reality that True Compassion is Voluntary!

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “True Compassion is Voluntary!“…

Rayn

“To the person going through our trash for their next meal,
You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a classic Pb&j, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.
-Your friend, the owner”
Voluntarily choosing to feed those less fortunate. JustAnarchistThings

Voluntaryism: because true compassion requires a little something called… hmm… what’s that magic word, again? Oh, yeah! CONSENT!!!

Many shared the story, but few understood the lesson! Outsourcing our humanity to an ultra-minority of power-hungry “elect” has been a dismal failure for CENTURIES! It is the slave’s answer to being a responsible, respectful Individual.

“No! I don’t want to be peacefully free because criminals will just take over without established authority!“

NEWS FLASH: criminals have ALREADY taken over, and they currently engage in their crimes, almost fully unabated, under the “color of law” that comes from the very established authority you thought would prevent it! Even the mafia couldn’t accomplish such an amazing feat! In reality, the conditions that Statists claim to fear – the ones that keep them clinging so hard to the cult of “government” – are precisely the ones we’ve been in for a very, very long time, already! What they seem to really fear, but rarely admit, is the PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY, and the direct participation in shaping society that comes with Individual Sovereignty!

Statism is just another obsolete extortion-racket, run by a tiny ruling class of professionally-lying, elitist, morally-bankrupt, sociopathic, career criminals.

Interestingly enough, at least when common robbers, kidnappers, rapists, and murderers commit their evils, we plainly see their actions as wrong, and fight back, even. But, give these same types State-issued uniforms and weapons, with the free range to abuse their peers that comes with it, and suddenly, and, somehow, their evils magically transform into “jobs,” and they are called “heros.” Even worse: arm them with government titles and pens, and watch even clear-as-day war crimes turn into “collateral damage”! 😉

Greg C.: Nice thing to do

Discussing the Fact that Helping Others is Slowly Becoming a Crime in America

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “In America, Helping Others is Slowly Becoming a Crime“…

Rayn: “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.” – Henry Thoreau

“One has a moral obligation to disobey unjust laws.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“64-year-old Constance Manzanares drowned after she became trapped in her car in a drainage canal in El Paso, Texas. When police arrived, they threatened several young men with arrest who were in the water, attempting to rescue her. The police rescue failed, allowing the woman to drown.”

Marilyn W.: Sad!
