Socialism Makes People Selfish

Which is better: socialism or capitalism? Does one make people kinder and more caring, while the other makes people greedy and more selfish? In this video
Don Winfield's insight:
If you manipulate the definition of words properly, you can normally short circuit questions & thinking.
No state provides socialism or capitalism. They provide state control plus belief in their own infallibility to manage our lives and use everything we produce. 
Neither State Socialism Nor Crony Capitalism produce healthy results. They are tools the politically powerful use to steal & live as tyrants.

Don Winfield's insight:

Greek word anarchy translated literally means “no ruler”.  

There is no thought more terrifying to the lunatics in charge than "No Rulers" which means "No Rulers or Others; Because, We Each Rule Ourselves"


The idea that people don't have the intelligence or morality to rule themselves and yet have the judgment and morality to elect someone in a contract they can never withdraw from just doesn't meet the test of good sense.


Either people have the intelligence or morality to rule themselves or they have intelligence or morality to select a ruler... Especially since we all know Power Corrupts the good... Power doesn't need to corrupt the wicked... They're already corrupt and clamoring for election.

Don Winfield's insight:

If what the political elites have created is civilization, we need to investigate those solutions that can support themselves voluntarily instead of by theft, murder, torture, con games, rigged judicial systems, unaccountability, and monopolies.

 

This site has some very good quotes that can direct your thinking to some very important questions.

 

It is worth noting that it also highlights some beliefs that are not very accurate.  The webmaster believes taxation is necessary for civilization.  

 

Consider how many people per hour politicians kill on average with money taken under threat of or actual force.

 

Norwegian Academy of Science & University of Oslo 

Since 3600 BC - 14,000 wars killing 3.6 billion people

That’s about 2.5 wars per year.  That’s 644,007 people per year.  That’s 73.5 people per hour.

 

Politicians murder their own citizens, not counting those poor souls that some other politician claims to own.  

 

According to Prof. R.J. Rummel, University of Hawaii, 169,198,000 men, women, children and infants were murdered under who were under the care and protection of their governments by their governemts... Between 1900 and 1987. That’s 222 of their own citizens every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, for 87 years. 

 

His Revised Estimate 1900-1999: 299 per hour = That's 4.98 per minute.

"We now know what we have long suspected: that the National Security Agency is collecting the phone call records of all Americans. And we are now justified in suspecting what we have long feared: that it is also keeping a permanent backup copy of everything that happens on the Internet..."

 

Will the new attacks against Health Freedom and giving more power to the control freak's lunatic agency, be the last straw?  Will 2014 lead the way with a simple rebellion agianst filling out and submitting a document that violates both our natural rights and the constitutional limitations on government power?

Don Winfield's insight:

Managed markets means they are managed for the benefit of the politically powerful to create profits for themselves and poverty for others.

 

"...details determined in confidential contract negotiations."

"meant prices that are four times higher in Asia than in North America."

"Japan...paying an average price of US$16.60 per million BTU—while gas prices in the US averaged just US$2.75."


This is one of the reasons politicians see the world so differently from those who believe in Freedom.  We see the failures of managed markets to create peace, abundance, innovation, lower prices, alternatives, and opportunity for everyone.


Individual Freedom does not exist without Free Markets.  In order to manage markets for their benefit, the politicals must destroy freedom.  


Politicians see managed markets as successes because they create a world where politicians have more power, position, prestige, paychecks, perks, and perversions.


The only meaningful difference between governments and other organizations of criminals, is the other criminals don't do nearly as much damage and they don't claim they were just following orders.

126 Years Ago Today: Lysander Spooner Dies

126 Years Ago Today: Lysander Spooner Dies | Individual Freedom | Scoop.it
Today is the 126th anniversary of the death of Lysander Spooner. Spooner is my favorite of the early American anti-capitalist anarchists and is my absolute favorite American abolitionist. Spooner, ...
Don Winfield's insight:

Lysander Spooner danced to a different drummer.  His thinking was not ruled by the mainstream beliefs of the day.  

 

There arre much better sights on Spooner than this one; because here he is described as anti-capitalist.

 

Wikipedia provides this on-target summary, "Lysander Spooner (January 19, 1808 – May 14, 1887) was an American individualist anarchist, political philosopher, Deist, Unitarian abolitionist, supporter of the labor movement, legal theorist, and entrepreneur of the nineteenth century. He is also known for competing with the U.S. Post Office with his American Letter Mail Company, which was forced out of business by the United States government."


Lysander Spooner also promoted ideas for alternatives to government money monopolies.

Don Winfield's insight:

Government by gun schools are brainwashing acadamies. Government by gun influences home schooling by authorizing text books, and requiring students to pass tests to prove they believe in the infallibility and morality of the state. 

 

Unschooling not only protects from the cult of the state, it provides the opportunity for students to discover their passions and their genius.

Pogo the Possum, Obama Speak, and Self-Government - Political Outcast

Pogo the Possum, Obama Speak, and Self-Government - Political Outcast | Individual Freedom | Scoop.it
In a speech to Ohio University, Obama, through classic “Obama Speak,” replaced the original idea of self-government with his own version of civil slavery.
Don Winfield's insight:

I have always loved this little cartoon...

 

In this instance, I have to disagree with its use.  DC is NOT us...  DC is NOT the US either.  They are a criminal gang answerable only to themselves. 

 

DC is an abbreviation for Den of Criminals or maybe Dumb & Criminal or Dictatorial Cult?  I'm sure you can come up with your own appropriate abbreviation.

 

Black leaders once stood for the end of slavery and its opposite Individual Freedom... Today so-called liberal black leaders seek equality in slavery with positions of gauranteed power for themselves supported by or within the ranks of the ruling elite. 

 

Although certainly not true of all of blacks (John Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell as for instances), the new and improved slavery promoters are the ones who are embraced and rewarded by the Politically Powerful.   

 

It is difficult to know how prevailing any position is because the sources that use to provide reporting have been purchased and transformed into tools for propaganda.  

 

I suspect the cry for "Equality Thorugh Slavery" is not as deep as it seems.  

 

At least I hope The Enemy Is Not Us...

Great Starting Paragraph: "Bad ideas and special interest politics don't ever die in Washington, D.C. They get re-introduced in the next Congress."


This is only 1 of the reasons that increasing the numbers beyond the 1,000 monkeys riding our backs cannot be stopped... 


Special interest groups have funding to seek monopoly status, censorship, and even demand the politicians loot our pockets for their benefit.  Of course, the politicians increase their own power, prestige, paychecks, perks and perversions at the same time. 


You and I cannot afford to fight 1 stupid regulation after the other... As a practical matter, we cannot even read everything that is being proposed.


Many of the worst bills get passed with no copies or time for us, the serfs, to read them.


In order to Free ourselves from those who claim they are our lords and ladies, we must find effective ways to do away with their presumed power.


One of the last remaining peaceful methods is to protect the individual rights and freedoms of others when serving as a juror.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Don Winfield's insight:

Panarchy is a word that may not carry prejudicial meaning in people's minds.  "the individual's right to choose any form of government without being forced to move from their current locale."

There is no significant difference between that definition and anarchy, nor individual freedom.  

 

Many people see Freedom as some form of abuse. They operate from a fear that freedom means someone else will harm them. 

People harm each other every day... And governments created to protect people harm more people than any other tragedy on the planet. 

The state school systems sing the praises of central planning & politicians while ignoring the proven effectiveness of Individual Freedom to create benefits in every arena of life.

If you want to understand Freedom and all of its blessings, explore how Freedom works in any area and let your mind question and imagine as you learn how it can be applied to every area of your life to eliminate the problems created by arrogant, ignorant, war loving, central planning tyrants.

Don Winfield's insight:

This is not self-government.  This is another group of statists who claim to be representing their serfs.  

 

Self government is good.  Statism sucks.  

 

About the only way, any of these states have any appeal, is that they can point to the atrocities committed by others just like them... Their claim to fame is that they will choose victims in keeping with whatever hate they can fan of some other group.

 

Mainstream media is a propaganda mill used to pervert words and our thinking processes into meaningless garbage.

 

You and I and everyone should be able to select the provider of services based on what we choose.  Most of the insanity of the world can only continue because the lunatics can force others to pay for the Hell on earth they create. 

 

Reversing the trend of feeding the lunatics could happen overnight.  We have no idea how sick our fellow serfs are of the ruling elites; because, the ruling elites control the media.

Don Winfield's insight:

Question Authority?  Question the Lure of Tribal Culture and Criminal Gang Membership...  

 

Immigration regulations are an outrageous policy with a foundational belief that people are owned by politicians and bureaucrats.  

 

The Political Elite would have us believe we are owned by our countries and therefore must tithe to them and follow their orders.

 

Immigration laws mean that the Politically Powerful own what you call your property; because, they decide who you can lease to, have as a guest, or sell property to.

 

Much of the hate generated over immigration comes; because, people do not want to share stolen loot and they do not want anyone stealing from them to support newcomers.

 

Why not create a moral culture?  Create a society not based on theft, extortion, wars, redistribution and central planning by the politically powerful.  

 

There is almost no problem we face today that is not created by or made worse by the ruling elites.  We live in a jerry-rigged society of theft, wars, monopolies, slavery, and crimes mostly caused by their theft, wars, monopolies, slavery and destruction of unfettered opportunity to protect their beneficiaries. 

 

Loot is redistributied for the benefit of the elite.  

 

Our criminal structure has replaced a moral society based on individual freedom with personal responsibility.

 

Review this sweeping analysis as to Why Immigration Is a Blessing and Not a Curse and Why It is NOT Lawful to Forbid Individual Right of Travel and Residence.

Law would stop Tesla electric car sales in NC | State Politics | NewsObserver.com | Individual Freedom | Scoop.it
A NC Senate bill would make it illegal for a car manufacturer to sell autos over the phone or online directly to a customer. The legislation would protect the state’s 7,000 auto dealers, who have exclusive license to sell cars.
Don Winfield's insight:

This is another great example of "Government by Gun - of, by and for the politically powerful..."  

 

By limiting innovation and competition, politicians gaurantee that thankful protected cartels will help them stay in power by donating money.  The politicians do their normaly daily routines that are unlawful and violate the individual freedoms of their serfs.

 

The so-called laws also violate the rights of individuals to form companies, raise capital, and seek innovative business models that save the "taxpayers" money.  

 

Innovations bring products and services to the markets that the existing providers do not want competing against their offers.  

 

If the existing providers products, services and business models were that great, they wouldn't need the assistance of "Government by Gun."  They know they'll lose in a fair fight.  That's why they turn to corrupt politicians and the corrupted power of the state.

 

We are not slaves, no matter what the politicians and those who rent them think.  

 

Politicians are like illegal $2 whores (in 2013 federal reserve funny money units), who provide fleeting gratification while spreading diseases to everyone. 

 

Our world becomes better to the extent that they become less powerful.  Control of our individual lives is in the hands of the individual who is responsible for their own lives... Or control is in the hands of the arrogant, the ignorant and the corrupt.

 

And it would make no difference, if the central planning political power with government by gun, were filled with the candidates of your choosing... The system of having someone else responsible for your life does not and can never work.

 

Each of us is responsible for our own lives.  No laws or pretense can ever change that central fact.

Steven Greenhut: Free Markets Are More Important Than Safety ... | Individual Freedom | Scoop.it
The armies of regulators who have descended on the remnants of the exploded fertilizer plant in West, Texas have yet to determine a cause, but that has.
Don Winfield's insight:

"Free Markets Are More Important Than Safety" is a stupid headline.  The actual headline is: "Free Markets Are More Important Than Safety Regulations"... Which still sucks.

 

Free Markets create safety more effectively than bureaucrats, politicians and police.

 

One of the problems with regulators is they attempt to decide what will work best for an industry by making their solution law.  Anyone who thinks that central planning by the ignorant and the arrogant is a good way of doing things is forgetting the soviet union and all of the other failed central planning experiments in history. 

 

The best path is to innovate and test numerous methods of improving safety... Sometimes that means discovering new and better ways of doing things and putting an entire industry out of business.  

 

The regulators interfere with the creation of new companies with regulations that protect their favored campaign contributors, restrictions on who can invest, and taxes that destroy capital formation in favor of wars and paying government employees 50% more than others doing the same work.

Don Winfield's insight:

Most governments were created by bands of theives who got tired of riding back and forth.  So they moved in... Claimed they were annointed by God... Or in many cases by documents created years ago by people who did not have any lawful right to bind you and your descendants to the terms they created.

 

The end result was government by gun; which does whatever the ruling elite choose.

 

Most people do not realize that without the Freedom to say, "No!" and the right to choose among service providers, you are slaves.  

 

Slavery is not an effective method of creating anything but misery, hate, and scarcity among the ruled... And it increases the arrogance, power addictions and perversions amongst the ruling elite.

 

Anarchy is Individual Freedom.
