Anytime, Anywhere and for any reason (or none at all!)

Greetings good citizen,

The destruction of our civilization proceeds on schedule. Markets opened UP in New York despite news that the Euro-zone was ‘tightening credit’ causing a global credit contraction.

Which is actually something of an oxymoron, considering how ‘credit’ works…

But there are two other factors in play, one is the ‘fuck it’ factor from yesterday’s post and the other is the growing ‘chump factor’ a contributor to the growing ‘fuck it’ factor.

Monkey see, monkey do…and what do you suppose the monkeys are seeing right now?

There is absolutely zero ‘downside’ to defaulting on their mortgage!

Better, it is unlikely the banks will evict them anytime in the foreseeable future because the economy is NEVER going to ‘recover’.

Which is to say they will NEVER sell the backlog of foreclosed properties already on the books.

There’s nobody to sell them to, thanks to the ‘global race to the bottom’.

FULL STOP good citizen!

Now ask yourself if what you have just read is ‘true’?

Then consider the level of ‘mismanagement’ it took for things to get this far out of whack…

Now consider what it will take to restore ‘economic sanity’.

How appropriate is it that our first offering of today is the latest example of inside the beltway ‘insanity’?

How bad is it good citizen? Have a look for yourself.

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night’s Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.

The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.

The disturbing ‘straight to a vote without any debate’ sort of tells you something, that the criminal 1% WANT this, er, ‘type’ of legislation…

Could this explain why McCain ISN’T making a presidential bid in 2012?

Worse, there’s ‘bipartisanship’ in action for ya!

Seems both sides of the political fence felt the need to protect themselves from prosecution for their criminal acts!

Which is to posit that this could be construed as a ‘defensive measure’, a tool our criminal legislators could use to ’disappear’ anyone attempting to hold them accountable for their multiple misdeeds.

Why else would anyone desire to arrest and detain someone indefinitely without leveling any ‘formal charges’?

Um, in case you can’t see it, the ‘most attractive’ part of this proposal is the ‘because I said so’ part.

Talk about turning back the social clock a thousand years!

They may as well take the final step and declare themselves ‘royalty’!

Prepare to shift mental gears good citizen because we are about to embark on a (to me) extremely disturbing journey.

Welcome to the Libertarian nightmare

Before we dive into the excerpt you need to understand that ‘Code Name Cain’ is making a similar ‘leap’, jumping into the deeply disturbing ‘middle’ of libertarian philosophy, taking it for granted that the reader already knows the ‘ground rules’ (even the interviewer is ‘upbraided’ for his ‘ignorance’.)

ANDREW: So they’ll have to do forced labor for the security GLO?

CNC: How can you possibly think this could be worse than our current system? Where instead of compensating the victims of crimes it did not prevent, the government forces victims to pay again as taxpayers for the cost of the apprehension, imprisonment, rehabilitation and/or entertainment of their aggressors [259]?

ANDREW: Still, as a libertarian, aren’t you against coercion?

CNC: Coercion? Obviously you don’t understand what you’re talking about. Coercion is only when someone interferes with rights someone else actually holds. Criminals can forfeit their rights through their own choices. When that happens, requiring them to make restitution for their actions doesn’t violate their rights.

As you can see, question Libertarian philosophy and you are belittled for your ignorance!

At the foundation of this nightmare is ‘privatization’ of most government functions.

There is no such thing as ‘public schools’, hell, even the police force is nothing more than hired guns, accountable to no one!

Why is this good citizen (and you wouldn’t be a citizen under Libertarian rule, there is NO Government to protect you!)

You see, Libertarians want to abolish government because they believe ‘taxes = coercion’.

Try, if you can, to imagine our current circumstances WITHOUT any kind of ‘social safety net’…no unemployment, no nothing!

To better understand Libertarianism you have to envision ‘capitalist utopia’ where nobody works for nobody and if your customers can’t pay then that’s your tough luck!

It wouldn’t be very long before Libertarian (capitalist) utopia burned to the ground.

Under A Simple Plan, the playing field is first ‘leveled’ then EVERYBODY is given a clean slate (except for the mentally instable, they will remain, er, ‘institutionalized’ for their own safety.)

EVERYBODY is GUARANTEED a job that pays A LIVING WAGE (and then some in most cases) along with the other requirements of modern society, a warm, dry place to call home and the means to get to and from their job- FREE!

Hell, you’d even enjoy free healthcare as needed and for life!

But let’s suppose ‘rules’ aren’t your thing…the ‘it’s easier to take it than to make it is just how you roll’ and you don’t see a compelling reason to, er, ‘conform’.

Well, under A Simple Plan, the job of Policeman still exists (and it doesn’t cost you a dime! As there are zero taxes under A Simple Plan.)

People who ‘take’ what they aren’t entitled to are invited to ‘exit’ civil society.

Not that ‘stealing’ makes sense because there is no cash, selling what you can’t personally consume is an exercise in futility!

But there will still be ‘crime’. You can’t outlaw ‘passion’.

And there will be ‘work arounds’ to the cash prohibition, which will be considered criminal.

Forfeit your citizenship and you forfeit your membership in society.

Unlike the greedy Libertarians there are no ‘work camps’ where ‘criminals’ can pay their debt to society.

Work is one of the ‘privileges of citizenship’ and it is guaranteed!

There is a very clear line here. Under Libertarian, er, ‘rule’ you can buy your way back into their good graces (as many times as necessary!)

Under ASP, being shown the door is a ‘one-way’ trip.

Oddly, Code Name Cain starts off touting ‘exile like’ punishment then backtracks into a bizarre prison/work camp set up for some unknown reason.

Perhaps it is tied to the notion that there can be no unemployment in ‘capitalist utopia’ where the onus is still on the individual to make themselves ‘useful’, HOPEFULLY at a profit!

Under A Simple Plan you are guaranteed employment, simply pick a field of endeavor that interests you and you’re on your way!

Note: Medical school, like all others, will be FREE (mostly because you will be trained ‘on the job’, thereby ‘earning’ your education.)

In contrast there won’t be Medical schools under Libertarian ‘you now pay for everything’ rule because of the lack of paying customers.

Worse, under total ‘privatization’, large scale endeavors become unworkable.

Who could afford to work on a production line if it didn’t pay enough to feed you?

I guess that’s the ‘bottom line’ good citizen.

What kind of world would it be if you had to pay for EVERYTHING?

And I do mean everything!

Pay Toilets would be the road to riches in a world without government!

Think about it!

Thanks for letting me inside your head,


Better Dead than Libby!
