The Tools Collectivists Use To Gain Power
By Brandon Smith

While many divisions within our society are arbitrary or engineered, there is one division that represents perhaps the most pervasive and important conflict of our time; the division between collectivists and individualists.

Now, people who do not understand the nature of collectivism will often argue that individualism and collectivism are not mutually exclusive because individuals require groups in order to survive and thrive. However, a “group” is not necessarily a collective.

For some reason the core fundamental of collectivism – the use of psychological coercion or physical force to compel participation – goes right over the heads of many skeptics. A group does not have to be collectivist. Any group can and should be voluntary. Collectivism is NOT voluntary. Therefore, collectivism and individualism are indeed mutually exclusive. Collectivists and individualists cannot exist in the same space at the same time without eventually coming into conflict. There is simply no way around it.

From the position of the liberty minded (or the average Libertarian), collectivism is by far the inferior of the two philosophies. Collectivists often boast of the social and economic “harmonization” collectivism creates, as well as the mobilization of labor to “streamline progress.” The reality is that artificially rigged harmony is no harmony at all. If people are forced to homogenize and get along through fear, then peace has not truly been accomplished.

Human beings must come to their own conclusions on cooperation and tolerance in their own time. They cannot be manipulated and shoehorned into a “utopian” framework. Problems will result, like genocide, which tends to erupt during almost every attempt at collectivist utopianism.

Economic harmonization is even less practical, with government force inevitably used to confiscate resources from one group to give to another group, essentially punishing success or frugality. This creates an environment in which achievement becomes less desirable. When people do not have individual incentive to pursue achievement, they see personal effort as wasted. Innovation and entrepreneurship fall by the wayside, and society as a whole begins to diminish in prosperity. Without individual accomplishments and ingenuity, the group is nothing but a hollow mindless ant hill.

Another argument which usually arises is that individualism leads to “selfishness” and the dominance of wealth devouring machines like corporations. I would remind collectivists that corporations exist only through the legal framework and protections of corporate personhood created by governments, and without government protections and favor, corporations could not exist. It is by collectivism, not individualism, that corporatocracy thrives.

At the same time, collectivists consistently blame individualist “free markets” for the numerous ailments of nations.  Yet another misrepresentation considering America has not had true free markets in well over a century, and most other nations have never had true free markets in their history.  Feudalism and its child Socialism have always been present to plague mankind.

There are no merits to collectivism that are not accomplished with greater success by individualism and voluntary community. In fact, collectivism only serves to enrich and empower a select few elites while destroying the future potential of all other individuals.

Given the disturbing nature of collectivism, one would think that attempts at collectivist societies would be a rarity, shunned by most people as akin to inviting cancer into the body. Unfortunately, cultures based on individualism are the minority in history.

The average collectivist is not usually much of a beneficiary of collectivism. We call these people “useful idiots” or “sheeple” who unknowingly serve the darker machinations of elitists while under the delusion that they are changing society for the better. The reason useful idiots participate in collectivism are many, but I have found that across the spectrum these people tend to be weak willed, weak minded, and by extension, possess a rabid desire for control over others.

It is perhaps no coincidence that “intellectuals” (self proclaimed) tend to end up at the forefront of modern efforts for collectivism. While the poor and destitute are often exploited by collectivism as a mob to be wielded like a battering ram, it is the soft noodle-bodied and fearful academia that acts as middle management in the collectivist franchise. It is they that desire the power to impose their “superior” ideologies on others, and since they are too weak to accomplish anything on their own, they require the cover and momentum of collectivist movements to give them the totalitarian fix they so crave. In other words, they believe in humanitarianism by totalitarianism.

Individualism is under constant and imminent threat as the collectivist obsession with control grows. The ultimate end game of collectivists is to derive submission from individuals, to corner people into handing over their individualism willingly.  It is not enough for them to merely apply force, the greatest power is in the power of consent.  Here are the most common tools used by collectivists to obtain power and manufacture consent from the masses.

The Illusion Of Consensus

Collectivists rely greatly on the force of a well-aimed mob to convince the general public they have the consensus position; that they are in the majority. Appearing to be in the majority is the single most important goal of a collectivist movement, even if they are in reality a small minority. The anonymity of web activism gives the force of the mob a new potency. No more than a dozen collectivists working in tandem can wreak havoc in multiple web forums or harass numerous individualist publications while giving casual readers the impression that their ideology is “everywhere.”

The key here is that collectivists understand that the average person does not want to be seen as too contrary to the majority. They understand that the majority view matters to the public, even if the majority view is utterly wrong. If collectivists can convince enough people that their ideology is the majority view, they know that many people will blindly adopt that ideology as their own in order to fit in. The lie of consensus then becomes a self perpetuating prophecy. This problem will remain forever a danger as long as people continue to care at all about the majority view.

The Destruction Of Core Institutions

Those institutions people consider “core institutions” are sometimes vital, and sometimes not. That said, it is the openly admitted objective of collectivists through socialist-style movements to destroy core institutions so that there is no competition to their new system. A collectivist society cannot allow citizens to have any loyalties beyond their loyalty to the group or the state.

So, individual liberties must be degraded or removed, as per the constant reinterpretation of the Constitution as a “living document.”  Religious institutions must be painted as shameful affairs for stupid barbaric cave-people. And, the family unit must be broken apart. This is done through economic depravity so pronounced that families never see each other, through state influence over children through public schooling, and through identity politics and propaganda which create sexual and racial conflicts out of thin air.

Dominating Discussion

This coincides with the idea of artificial consensus, but it goes beyond the use of the mob. In our daily lives we are now bombarded with collectivist messages — in mainstream news, in television shows, in movies, through web media and print media. The money behind these outlets belongs to a very small and select group of people, but through them the collectivist worldview is injected into every corner of our society. I would call this propaganda by attrition; an indirect but steady insertion of collectivism creating an atmosphere in which the ideology becomes commonplace even though it is being promoted by a limited number of people.

Exploiting The Youth

When we are young, most of us spend a great deal of time and energy working to be taken seriously. The question is, should we be taken seriously?

In my view and the view of the liberty minded, it really depends on the person’s actions, experience, efforts and accomplishments. Most younger people have little to no experience in life and haven’t had the time to accomplish much. They are still learning how to function in the world, and what kind of goals they want to pursue (if they ever pursue any goals). Because of this, it is hard for those of us who have gone through considerable struggles in life and reached a certain level of achievement to take them seriously when they decide to stroll into a room and pontificate on their moral and philosophical superiority. It makes me want to ask; what the hell have you ever accomplished?

This is not to say that there are not ingenious young people out there, or ignorant and lazy older folks. There are. But collectivist movements seek to exploit younger generations exactly because of their general lack of experience and naivety, as well as their feelings of entitlement when it comes to respect.

Collectivism almost always utilizes a theory called “futurism” in order to appeal to the young. The theory, which was a leading philosophy behind the rise of fascism, proclaims that all new ideas are superior in their social usefulness and all old ideas and beliefs should be abandoned like so much dead skin. According to futurism, those who cling to old ideas and principles are an obstacle to the progress of society as a whole.

The funny thing is, the ideas usually expounded by collectivists are as old as time — elitism, feudalism, totalitarianism, etc. None of these methodologies are “new” by any stretch of the imagination, but collectivists repackage them as if they are some grand new secret to Shangri-La. Younger adherents of collectivism latch onto futurism almost immediately. For, if all new ideas are superior, and all old ideas are barbaric, and younger people are the purveyors and consumers of everything new, then this means that it is the youngest generations that are the wisest, and the village elders that are naïve. By default, the young become the village elders without them ever having to struggle, make sacrifices, learn hard lessons, suffer loss, rise to challenges, or accomplish anything.

The enticing nature of this sudden groundswell of cultural respect is simply far too much for the average person college age or younger to ignore. Collectivism gives the young what they think they want, then uses them as tools for greater conquests.

Forcing Society To Accept The Lowest Common Denominator

Collectivism requires the homogenization of society, to the point that individualism is frowned upon and success is treated as negligible. Whether it is public schools lowering standards to the point that students with little or no reading comprehension graduate, or businesses being forced to lower standards in the name of “diversity” while rejecting employees with superior skill sets because they do not belong to a designated victim group, or government institutions like the military lowering physical standards to accommodate far weaker candidates in the name of “gender parity” while putting every soldier’s life at risk in the process, we are constantly being asked to accommodate the lowest common denominator instead of reaching for the highest level of excellence.

This makes the concept of success a bit of a joke. For “success” within such a system is easy as long as one follows the rules; excelling as an individual is not a factor. And by success I mean being allowed to survive, because that is the best you are going to get in a collectivist structure. The only way to fail is to not follow the rules, rules which may be arbitrary or idiotic at their core. Individualists are immediately punished for thinking or acting outside the box, when this is exactly the kind of behavior that should be encouraged. A society built on the lowest common denominator is a society destined for collapse. Individuals are systematically weeded out in the name of homogenization and all of their potential achievements and innovations disappear with them.

The nightmare of collectivism is the defining battle of our age. It is in this era that we will decide whether or not individual liberty and freedom of thought are more important than the illusory security and “harmony” of the collective.

I, for one, long to see a future in which individual enterprise is allowed to thrive and voluntary participation is the root principle on which our culture functions; a future in which state power is reduced to zero, or near zero, and government force is no longer an acceptable means by which one group can seek to control another group. I may not see this world in my lifetime, but the liberty-minded can make it possible for newer generations by avidly defending ourselves against collectivism today. As pointed out in the beginning, collectivism and individualism cannot coexist; confrontation is inevitable. Recognizing this, and preparing for it, is our duty as free human beings.

  1. Law enforcement is some of biggest collectivists of all as they blindly follow orders for their “pieces of silver”. They have no idea what life, liberty or my pursuit of happiness means.

    As for the youth, they can be forgiven for their views after 12 years of brainwashing about the Empire and the so-called “heros”. They will eventually wake up.

    Unfortunately, the Empire will try to get them to “see the world” before they do.

    USA! USA! USA!

    Convince your children to reject the call to sacrifice their blood for today’s Anglo-Zionist Empire.

    • Collectivism is another way of saying Communism.
      Communism is another way of saying Leftism.
      Leftism is another way of saying Democrat Party.

      If you don’t vote because you saw on the internet that your vote doesn’t count, you’re helping the Democrat Party/Leftists/Communists/Collectivists to gain power.

      “But…but…but…it doesn’t matter who you vote for, they’re all the same!”
      No they aren’t. There are still some right wing candidates who want to try to stop this rush off the cliff.

      As I’ve said before, if you can’t fine a candidate to vote for, then at least vote against the Democrat Party/Leftists/Communists/Collectivists.

      • Rodster says:

        “If you don’t vote because you saw on the internet that your vote doesn’t count, you’re helping the Democrat Party/Leftists/Communists/Collectivists to gain power.”

        Voting only encourages the bastards. The political process has FAILED. The election process is rigged and the winner has already been appointed just like Vince McMahon gets to decide who wins and loses in the WWE/WWF.

        Both parties are one and the same. Your choice is between the Demicans and Republicrats, Diet Coke vs Diet Pepsi. Any 3rd party has NO shot at winning the election because the both parties control the media.

        So go ahead and vote, at least you’ll better thinking you’ve made a difference. I know better and i’ll stay home.

        • In email correspondence, Brandon was crystal clear to me that he has the same plan for Christians who oppose usury, price gouging, and wage gouging as he has for “globalists.”

          If you are a Christian who believes Luke 6:32-36, then do not turn your back on Brandon.

          His pretense of a big tent for individualists does not include those who have a truly Christian vision of decent society.

          • Brandon Smith says:

            No I didn’t. Citation please.

            • In your email of April 24 that you also copied to Mac, Daisy, Doug Owen, and Michael Snyder, your point 8 read as follows:

              “…8) I have had many Christian zealots try to quote scripture in rather abstract fashion to defend their own zealotry. The problem with religious zealots is that they are more than happy to loosely interpret scriptures to support any number of evils. Even if the Bible did actually support the philosophy of zealotry, zealotry would still be utterly WRONG. It defies every aspect of natural law, the law of inherent conscience. I would treat a Christian zealot seeking oppression the same way I would treat a globalist zealot seeking oppression, with opposition up to and including the use of deadly force…”

              Your email was in a sequence responding to my original email stating that Christ binds Christians to oppose usury, unjust prices, and unjust wages, hence, by Jesus’ own standards we must oppose a “free market” that allows/encourages usury, unjust wages, and unjust prices. You used the terms “zealot” and “oppression” to describe those of us who actually do our best to adhere to the teaching of Jesus Christ, specifically Luke 6:32-36.

              If you want to pursue this, I would be happy to share the entire series of email correspondence with interested readers.

              • Brandon Smith says:

                By all means, share the entire exchange. Where in that statement did I say that I “have the same plan for Christians who oppose usury, price gouging, and wage gouging as I have for “globalists.”?

                Christians who oppose usury, price gouging and wage gouging have every right to do so. I oppose those things as well. However, if your goal is to set up a theocracy to impose your worldview on everyone else using your own version of government force and collectivism, then I will indeed be compelled to shoot you, just so my position is clear to you and all the readers here.

                • “…I would treat a Christian zealot seeking oppression the same way I would treat a globalist zealot seeking oppression, with opposition up to and including the use of deadly force…”

                  Here is my original email. Note there is no suggestion of setting up a theocracy, merely indicating the moral bounds common to Christians. We may not establish a society that rejects the moral bounds set by Jesus Christ (otherwise we are not Christians, but lukewarm and vomited out—Apocalypse 3:16). I will post the rest if Mac allows:

                  Brandon says, “…FAR too many Christians on the wrong side of this fight. Belief in God is not enough; one must also believe in liberty. I am more than happy to fight alongside any man that believes in freedom, regardless of whether or not he believes in god. Religious orientation at this point is utterly meaningless. If Christians are not willing to work with non-Christians to defend liberty,…”
                  http://alt-market.com/articles/2572-one-last-look-at-the-real-economy-before-it-implodes-part-6-solutions

                  Not “meaningless” to US.

                  CHRISTIANS believe in LIBERTY, FREE WILL to do right or WRONG. That does not mean Christians will bleed to build a society that is WRONG, that tolerates, even encourages, EVIL, so the question remains for US. Do we CHRISTIANS want to work arm-in-arm with ANTI-Christians?

                  A detailed reading of Von Mises and Rothbard identify a pervasive and vicious ANTI-Christian philosophy. This has been well-documented in Chris Ferrrara’s book “The Church and the Libertarian: A Defense of the Catholic Church’s Teaching on Man, Economy, and State.”
                  http://www.amazon.com/The-Church-Libertarian-Catholic-Teaching/dp/B004UI30P0

                  If Brandon and his confreres cannot discuss the problem, how can they reasonably expect to attract Christians, practicing Christians, to fight arm-in-arm with them? Usury, abortion, perversion, unjust wages, unjust prices, genocide—these are serious problems for PRACTICING Christians. If they can’t talk to us about these problems and instead ignore or delete our discussion on these issues, how can they reasonably expect US to fight arm-in-arm with THEM?

                  I submit that Brandon’s evasion and censorship on this topic is his (and their) Achilles heel. I say that as someone who admires Brandon’s work and analysis except for his unwillingness to engage on this sticking point. Of all the commentators in the liberty movement I would have least expected that Brandon would be the one to evade discussion of a serious moral and intellectual problem in our midst.

                  “Your way or the highway?” Is that the “Austrian” offer? How then is that different from Obama or Putin or Rothschild?

                  JQP

                • Brandon’s response:

                  I think [JQP] makes my point for me. Who is “US”? All Christians? Because anyone with any sense can see day to day that not all Christians are supporters of liberty. In fact, many of them would like nothing better than to trade globalism for theocracy – one tyranny for another. I know this because I deal with numerous such people in my work.

                  Being a Christian does not automatically make one honorable or trustworthy, unfortunately. Some of the greatest monsters in history have claimed to be Christian. Beyond that, the primary issue here is ZEALOTRY, which I will not tolerate on my site. You displayed an attitude of zealotry and a strategy of divisiveness, attempting to portray Austrians economists as intolerant to Christians (as if the philosophy has anything to do with religion at all), and libertarians as “anti-christian” (I know many libertarians that are also Christian, and many that are not). Your goal seems to be to build a false paradigm between Christian and non-Christian liberty proponents. Clearly, you do not like the idea of these two “sides” working together for a common goal (freedom).

                  Christian zealots are not Christian, not in the manner that Christ taught, anyway. They are only interested in elevating their own ideology at the expense of everyone else. THIS is why you are not welcome on my site. Don’t like it? Go start your own site, then you can bitch about me from your pulpit anytime you like.

                  Regards,

                  Brandon Smith

                • Brandon Smith, what you are saying needs to be said and is certainly NOT anti religion or Christian ! Many are blinded by their control mechanisms and still very much connected to thheir own illusions.

                • Brandon,

                  Glad to have started a “dialog.” I hope—and pray—this bears good fruit.

                  Firstly, I have admired your mostly perspicacious analysis (perhaps because I agree with most of your analysis) as I have appreciated you calling attention to the need for moral underpinnings of what you call “the liberty movement.” Especially in view of your own call for moral underpinnings, I call you to reconsider the morality of usury, unjust wages, and unjust prices.

                  (1) “All Christians?” I made a point of using the phrase “practicing” Christians to identify those whose well-formed consciences understand what the Gospel forbids—usury, unjust wages, unjust prices, perversion, extramarital sex, sins that are coddled by many libertine and “free market” libertarians. Thankfully many libertarians oppose some sins that sadly are dear to many nominal “Christians,” “Christian” Zionists, genocide and race hatred.

                  (2) “…anyone with any sense can see day to day that not all Christians are supporters of liberty.” Excepting the case of anarchists, most libertarians are not entirely opposed to laws regulating behavior—for example, laws against murder and sex with minors. Do we then say, “Anyone with any sense can see day to day that not all [libertarians] are supporters of liberty”? I think not. It is not that libertarians draw no “line in the sand,” It is simply that libertarians draw their “line in the sand” in a different location from practicing Christians. The location of that line is an important issue among parties living together.

                  (3) The territory between those two lines is what deserves discussion among “Austrian” zealots and Christian “zealots.” A hypothetical—You, Brandon, may argue that there is no such thing as usury as long as the contract is “voluntary,” but “voluntary” has been a matter of degree for millennia—a starving child or impending foreclosure may be as compelling duress as a gun to the head. Powerful tools seduce consumers. Where are the bright lines between “duress,” “seduction,” and “free will”?

                  (4) “Being a Christian does not automatically make one honorable or trustworthy, unfortunately. Some of the greatest monsters in history have claimed to be Christian.” If one is TRULY Christian, one is indeed honorable and trustworthy and not monstrous. Since we are all imperfect, far short of being Christ-like, what’s your point? That we should not strive to be better? That no Christian is honorable or trustworthy? That we should be happy to be “free” in an aborting, usurious, libertarian successor to the Anglo-Zionist Empire? What is your point?

                  [I messed up the numbering so there was no “5” in the original]

                  (6) “attempting to portray Austrians economists as intolerant to Christians (as if the philosophy has anything to do with religion at all), and libertarians as “anti-christian” (I know many libertarians that are also Christian, and many that are not). “

                  (a) I accurately and incontrovertibly identified SPECIFIC, NAMED, LIBERTARIAN LUMINARIES, Von Mises and Rothbard, as viciously ANTI-CHRISTIAN. I have cited Ferrara’s thorough compilation of the pervasively ANTI-CHRISTIAN philosophy of Von Mises and Rothbard. Ferrara’s book is FULL of documentation that I could not possibly summarize in a readable format in this email. Who is convinced by your gratuitous denial? Here again is the book for the intellectually honest:
                  http://www.amazon.com/The-Church-Libertarian-Catholic-Teaching/dp/B004UI30P0

                  (b) I made no general claims against libertarians except that usury, unjust wages, unjust prices, and other sins are against the Gospel and not at all Christ-like—whatever one calls oneself. Serious food for thought for anyone who calls oneself a Christian.

                  (c) In their points of incompatibility, the libertarian philosophy does indeed have something to do with religion. I reject your gratuitous denial that there is a nexus.

                  (7) “a strategy of divisiveness… Your goal seems to be to build a false paradigm between Christian and non-Christian liberty proponents. Clearly, you do not like the idea of these two “sides” working together for a common goal (freedom).” Au contraire, I am engaging you not for divisiveness, but for introspection, moral and intellectual honesty, and rapprochement—and I said so. Far from a “false paradigm,” there is a REAL GAP between practicing Christians (not to be confused with those who ignore Luke 6:32-36) and “Austrians.” The gap is no “strategy”; it is a FACT. I do not oppose “freedom”; I oppose predatory behavior masquerading in the guise of “freedom.”

                  (8) “Christian zealots are not Christian, not in the manner that Christ taught, anyway. “ Since, the Word of God warns that the lukewarm will be vomited out (Apocalypse 3:16), by what authority, by what standard, do you pontificate “another Gospel” of the lukewarm? Cite authority from natural law or scripture or the Magisterium that Christians should be lukewarm… or have your gratuitous assertion gratuitously rejected.

                  (9) “They are only interested in elevating their own ideology at the expense of everyone else. “ And, of course, you are no zealot. You are not elevating your own ideology to chastise and reject Christians who oppose usury, unjust wages, and unjust prices.

                  (10) “THIS is why you are not welcome on my site. Don’t like it? Go start your own site, then you can bitch about me from your pulpit anytime you like.” Indeed, you are FREE to take your bat and ball home, cranky, pouting, disallowing any discussion—and worse, disallowing any challenging study or honest introspection. But if you do, be known as a hypocrite for decrying divisiveness when I approach you and you make the divide.

                  Lastly, I reiterate. I have admired your mostly perspicacious analysis as I have appreciate you calling attention to the need for moral underpinnings. Now I ask you for more than lip service to moral underpinnings, to actually give due consideration to the morality of usury, unjust wages, and unjust prices.

                  My very best regards,
                  Mark

                  P.S. After considering what I have written here, please do let me know if I remain unwelcome on your site.

                • Rather than fill Mac’s page and as Brandon invited, I posted the full correspondence between us. Scroll down to “Correspondence with an ‘Austrian’“: http://judaism101.proboards.com/thread/47/usury

                • Brandon Smith says:

                  Yes, and I stand by EVERY SINGLE WORD in that exchange. It is the same message I have ALWAYS presented openly and publicly.

                  Your assertion was that Christians should “oppose a free market” (I disagree, and nowhere in the bible do the words “free market” ever appear), yet you danced around the issue of how you plan to do that. The only way you could accomplish stopping the free market is through collectivist force, or theocracy. You weren’t simply talking about Christians not participating in a free market, you were suggesting that they not allow a free market to exist. So, I’ll say it again, if your intent is to use force through government, theocracy or otherwise, to impose your worldview on others, then I will fight you, and I will kill you.

                  You have every right to NOT PARTICIPATE in a free market, but you do NOT have the right to stop other people from participating in a free market.

                • Another line of inquiry about “collectivism.”

                  How do you propose stopping murder and pedophilia in your “free” society?

                  Will you simply “not participate”?

                  Or will you oppose murder and pedophilia? If so, will you personally investigate, try, judge, and punish the alleged perpetrators? Will the victim or survivors send you smoke signals to come down from the mountain to apply your final solution?

                  Or will you employ a “collectivist” solution? …fair trials, fair juries, just judges, humane prisons, and, in the most dire of circumstances, reluctant executioners?

                  You see, there are means of punishing murderers, pedophiles, and usurers, that do not require your bogeyman, a zealous theocracy.

                • Another comment that didn’t seem to sit well with the censor was posted at the usury link above, but I will try again here.

                • This one:

                  As one of many possible examples, grinding a man and his family into poverty/insolvency through 100% compounded interest of payday loans in a “free market” (or any market) is AGGRESSION. A decent society has the duty to STOP such aggression. Another example, killing babies is AGGRESSION. Abortion stops a beating heart. A decent society has the duty to STOP such aggression.

                  The word “pedophilia” does not “appear in the Bible.” Is that an excuse to allow pedophilia in a “free” society? The Bible does not name every sin, but Biblical principles like the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes allow men of good conscience to make moral judgments.

                  “Usury” does “appear in the Bible.” In fact, usury is damned in the Bible, so it does not even require a Christian to make a solid leap of logic to oppose usury. And there are also Jesus’ admonitions of Luke 6:32-36.

                  “Anything goes” in a “free market” is not a moral solution. Christians have a duty beyond non-participation to ensure that such things do NOT exist in society.

                  As you have seen, there is no shortage of lukewarm Christians with poorly formed consciences who are willing to leave Jesus at the door of the “Austrian” temple. Jesus, as His Father, made quite clear that He will “vomit out” the lukewarm and the disobedient (Leviticus 20:22; Apocalypse 3:16).

                  You, as an “Austrian” zealot, have made quite clear your “final solution” for those of us who will OPPOSE the financial and other aggression of the “free market.” I, for one, appreciate your clarity lest Christians aid you or unknowingly turn their backs on you.

                  Lastly, I once again draw the attention of Christians to the explicit and vicious anti-Christian rhetoric of the founders of the “Austrian” school. Even for Protestants, Ferrara’s book, linked above, is an excellent compendium of the evidence against “Austrians.”

                • Brandon Smith says:

                  Pedophilia and murder are trespasses against the liberties of another individual, participation in a free market is NOT. You hypothetical comparison is wildly ignorant.

                  Beyond that, a voluntary community punishing a person for violating the liberties of a member is NOT collectivism. If a person violates the individual rights of others then they forfeit their own individual rights. Justice does not require collectivist bureaucracy in order to function.

                • Brandon Smith says:

                  Many pedophiles end up being priests so it is hard to say what the establishment church REALLY thinks about it. If you don’t like usury , then don’t participate in it. No one can force you to borrow or lend money at unreasonable high rates of interest (which is what usury is), someone can potentially force you as a child to have sex, which is why your comparison is idiotic.

                  The problem is, if you believe that it is justified for YOU to apply your own obligatory definition of usury to other people in order to stop them from lending or borrowing money, then you are an enemy of freedom, and therefor you deserve to be removed as a threat.

                • Largely non-responsive, Brandon. You have conveniently-for-you truncated your definition of AGGRESSION.

                  Murder and pedophilia are, as we agree, AGGRESSION, so why do you avoid discussion of the murder of babies in utero? Will your “voluntary community,” as you have already, turn a blind eye to the murder of babies in utero? Your failure to recognize that the aborted baby is the defenseless victim of force, AGGRESSION, makes me an idiot???

                  Similarly you avoid discussion of usury as AGGRESSION—abuse of working people, the poor, and the weak is AGGRESSION. To repeat a point lost on you, paying an unjust wage to a starving working man (excusing it with “the market”) and seducing a foolish man into destructive consumerist debt using advertising seduction (excusing it with “his own fault”) are AGGRESSIONS.

                  When a family’s “participation in a free market” is a choice between starvation/homelessness/penury and usury/unjust wages/unjust prices, that “participation in a free market” is indeed a “trespass against the liberties of another individual,” AGGRESSION.

                  Why are doctors and lawyers punished for seducing patients even when it does not involve forcible rape? Answer: Because of the imbalance of power in the relationship. So too, the employer who pays an unjust wage to a starving man, the businessman who seduces the weak to buy at unjust prices, and the usurer who seduces a desperate man in dire straits all abuse their imbalance of power, AGGRESSION.

                  So, just as a “voluntary community” properly punishes murderers and pedophiles (yes, including priests, ministers, and rabbis), that same “voluntary community” should properly punish financial crimes against humanity.

                  You condemn some murders, but not others. You condemn some aggressions, but not others. If you pause to reflect deeply, notice that your “idiot” and “zealot” name-calling and final solution threats are coupled to your own failure of vision, your own doctrinaire zealotry, and your own inconsistent and morally-crippled analysis.

                • To be clear—

                  You define usury as “unreasonable high rates of interest.”

                  The Bible defines usury as any profit (“increase”) on a loan of money.

                Since you raise the topic of mental illness, which advocacy is mentally healthy:
                a) a dog-eat-dog “free market” that grinds the poor with 100% compounded interest payday loans, debtors prisons, high prices, and low wages
                or
                b) an economic system that encourages the widespread ownership of private property and that prevents men from grinding down their neighbors or seducing the weak into penury?

          • Brandon Smith says:

            They don’t have to rig the vote count when the leadership of both parties is controlled. By the way, Trump is close friends with the Clintons and he has been a long time supporter of the Clinton Foundation:

            https://reason.com/blog/2015/06/19/bill-clinton-on-donald-trump-he-supporte

            He’s no Ron Paul, but he is good at telling us conservatives what we want to hear…

            “…The argument of two parties should represent opposed ideas and policies, one perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinate and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority, or method.”

            Carrol Quigley, member of the CFR and mentor to Bill Clinton, from ‘Tragedy And Hope’

            • I was involved in the Republican party for most of my life. When Mccain got nominated most every prescient I was in contact with wanted Ron Paul. Somehow miraculously McCain got the nod. I called everyone up and they were as shocked as I was. I was eventually told by smeone high in the party that “The party wont survive if an outsider is elected”.

              They dont need to rig the vote if they supply you with their candidates.

              I would be happy to see Trump Elected only for the simple reason that the Republicans dont want him.

          • Vic – no reason to be lazy – type in “voting machine rigging” in your search box. Tons of articles for you to click on.

        • Many people have woken up in the last 8 years. Friends of mine who voted independent or democrat and finally starting to look at the candidate instead of the party.

          About forgiving the kids. My daughter was home schooled.
          She is in public school for 12th grade so she can get a diploma. She thinks that the kids she goes to school with are dumb and do whatever the teachers ask of them whether it is right or wrong. She says opinion isnt allowed and disagreement with whatever the status quo believes gets you ostracized. She dosent think there is any hope for them.

        Like my T-shirt says “Groupthink, It’s a no brainer”.
        Very good article and explained well. It fortifies my saying “If you can’t tell your surrounded by idiots, your probably one of them”.
        Why people think they have to fit in with the crowd is beyond me. Trying to get them to see otherwise is like talking to your hand. We are going over the cliff and I see no way of stopping it. People in masses are just too stupid to be free. They never have been nor will they ever be. If you got rid of all the people who want to tell others what to do, you would have 500 million or so people left and freedom would have a chance. How has voting in the last 100-150 years worked out for you? Like Mark Twain said “If voting made a difference, they wouldn’t let you do it” And George Carlin “They only let you vote to give you the illusion that you have a choice”. It is going to be what it will be and everything on this planet will pay the price for human greed and overbreeding and apathy and ignorance. I’m sure glad I’m not 18!

          Fantastic comment, I agree.

      • This shit again Vic? …VOTING … seriously?

        The Political Structure in America is beyond corrupt.
        Voting for the lesser of two evils is still giving consent for them to continue their illegal activities.

        So … if you still want to see our Government continue it’s illegal Wars, disobeying the Constitution and the Laws of this land, while creating chaos within and outside of our borders.

        Then I say to you … fucking vote then.

        When you vote, you do not have the option to complain, because you have given them consent to continue their illegal ways.

        I and others on the other hand, have plenty to complain about, because we see our Government for what it is.

        -Dysfunctional-

        We already recognize that our Government does not represent the people of this country, they only represent themselves and those who contribute to them in the form of Bribes and Payoffs.

        It’s ok Vic, you are not alone in this ideology that somehow we have some kind of stable, functional form of Governance. Somehow people like you think that some majestic person is gonna come out of the shadows, and this same magical person is going to fix everything?

        You can not Vote out a Dysfunctional Government.

        My conscience will not allow me to vote for known habitual liars and sociopaths – but … by all means, have at it – it’s the kind of thing you and voters seem to support.

Let’s start with your own family: Families are formed for the protection and betterment of each member and each member has to share in the work and the rewards. In your “Dog-Eat-Dog” fantasy world of social Darwinism (Perfect Capitalism) everyone would have to fend for themselves like a pride of lions where the males get the meat first, then the females, and the cubs get what’s left over, if any.

    let me give you one quote from that article

    this is from a confidential letter that was sent to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce

    “the electric grid”is extremely vulnerable to disruption by a cyber or other attack.”
    “timely reconstruction of the grid following a carefully targeted attack…would be impossible” and could “result in widespread outages for at least months to two years or more”

    • Yes it is all a very real potentiality and would be far worse than most consider. It would also be a source of martial law immediately and perhaps no future elections, dear leader and all ?

          And being that EVERY Nuke owner nation HAS agreed and Has signed that treaty…EXCEPT of course for the jewish state of Israel, which has continued to refuse to ever sign onto the treaty….EVERY USA Prez and Reps and Senators Et Al whom promotes and Funds Israhell is and Has been commiting Treason at worst, and at best enough fed crimes and international criminal type crimes against humanity, that they all need be rounded up Via RICO-Laws, and prosectued to the Fullest extant of said combo laws.

          And as for Rabid jewish state Israel?…They need be forced to Pay Back every fuckin Penny usa tax monies has lavishly provided them with with which they use in every type or sort of evils and planned evils known and as yet unknown of by most people.

          Of course as long as israel’s top political leadership and its top Pharisee Rabbi Leaders are allowed to continue their “Samson Option” Nuke threats to european nations…IE: They have repeatedly stated that if Israel don’t keep getting whatever They want etc from the global-Goyim “others”….They have 300 or more Nuke missles pointed at and Aimed at every Major euro city and can even send a nuke flying to destroy…ROME!..which is an obvious attempt to stiffle and silence Christianity which they consider their number One main object in their way of the JWO they so desire rulership and Onwership of and over.

          JFK wasn’t killed due to he had usa treasury dept begin to print us dollars backed by silver etc…Yes it was a small part of his death of course…but the REAL Main major reason #1 the rabid blood thirsty synagouge of satan had JFK whacked was because of his Abject total objections and openly public objections to the jewish state of Israel ever being allowed to own ANY Nukes!

          And that current stockpile of 300+ israel nukes AIMED at every major euro city and rome is a Must if the tribe ever is to obtain dominance globally aka a J-WO nwo.

          So JFk Had to go….So all but three or four of the total of Caught Spies in the usa since WWII ended, and whom was spying to steal mainly NUKE secrets etc, by some strange coincidence happened to be numbered at aprox 295 spies caught=jews or israel jews while the Rest or 3 to 4 spies were NON jewish Goys!

          But its them Muzzies we must be more worried of right?

          Look up Talmudic “Noahide Laws” for gentile goys and RE-think that main problem folks…Yes Muslims are a huge problem for all non muslim nations or peoples..

          But they got to the Game very Late! For the Talmudic antichrists has had at least 2000 to 2500 Years head start on their plans of goyim destructions!

  9. Both the Dims and the GOPs are collectivist.

    They are two wings of the Demopublican/Republicrat One Party System.

    Both wings believe that individuals are not sovereign and independent, but merely involuntary members of a collective obligated to obey and pay a well-organized gang that calls itself “The Government”.

      yep, the day after the republicans gave obama a free ride and blank check for the rest of his term, new house speaker ryan says it’s a clean slate and put the past behind.

      if anyone i was in personal buisness with just made a move like that, i’d either have beaten them up or be suing them or both.

      • So can I beat the shit out of and sue people that steal my currency to pay for their kids shit and parks and stadiums and decorations and golf courses and parades and landscaping and rec centers and the endless shit they rob me for?

        • Hunter says:

          Genius..

          Nope! ..ya can’t sue!!!!!

          Stick w/ the ass-whupping / physical vengeance / knee-capping scenario (or whatever)…you’ll get much faster results…satisfaction wise, mind you!

          …BTW, should anyone here…happen to know ’bout George Soros where-abouts and / or his travel itinerary…

          I would be “very appreciative ($$$ for you)”..for said info.

          Thanks…

    To sum up the article, sounds like he is referring to the “Yes we can/Yes we have no bananas” chanters, the **real** haters, namely the book burning radical homosexuals, who – to quote ultraliberal Bill Maher on Real Time, said “I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked,” and the BIG GREEN MONEY cult of Al Gore and his fake “consensus” which – in case anyone is interested – is where, according to WSJ, the former director of the University of Delaware’s Center for Climatic Research David R. Legates, examined the evidence, and came to a very different conclusion: “…’only 41 papers–0.3 percent of all 11,944 abstracts or 1.0 percent of the 4,014 expressing an opinion, and not 97.1 percent–had been found to endorse’ the claim that human activity is causing most of the current warming.”

    Not only that, but several of the scientists surveyed, including Dr. Craig Idso, Dr. Nor Shaviv, Dr. Richard Toll, and Dr. Nicola Scafetta, complained that their work was being misrepresented. Popular Technology interviewed Dr. Idso, and he said: “It would be incorrect to claim that our paper was an endorsement of CO2-induced global warming.” They also interviewed Dr. Scafetta, who said:

    “Cook et al. (2013) is based on a straw man argument…What my papers say is that the IPCC [United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] view is erroneous because about 40-70% of the global warming observed from 1900 to 2000 was induced by the sun.”

    In essence, the study upon which the climate change alarmists at the Sierra Club base their idea of a 97% consensus is utter BS. A final nail in the coffin of a “consensus” is the Global Warming Petition Project, which bears the signatures of over 30,000 scientists, over 9,000 of whom hold PhDs. The petition states, in part: “There is no convincing scientific evidence that the human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing, or will in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the earth’s climate.”

    My work is a victim of this they are forced to do the diversity thing and paying for it with lousy and lazy help. They deserve it this is what happens when you cut pay 15 percent and rape the pension system 75 percent the best help left there is a few just about to retire left and they don’t give two shits anymore. It’s a damn shame too this company has a rich 90 year history some guys dads worked here too. Word is it used to be damn near impossible to work here and if you did you did the bullshit stuff for years. Just a shit show now due to corporate cutthroats and backstabbers just the way it is.

  12. Plan twice, prep once says:

    I’ve worked with several people from the former Soviet Union, and Communist China.

    They were often baffled as to why capitalism worked so much better than communism. I said, Communism is a very seductive philosophy that exploits our expectation for perfect fairness. The problem with collectivism is it is a poor match for human psychology. You’d think greed would be a bigger problem in capitalism, but greed is just a motivator to work hard in a capitalistic environment. Greed in collectivism results in criminal activity since the rules of collectivism require greed a natural human emotion to be suppressed.

    A good capitalistic system has and enforces rules that prevent greed driven abuse like monopolies, and corporatism. Notice Obama has promoted big business monopolies and corporatism at the expense of small and private business. He is in essence converting western capitalism into a corrupt collectivist society directly. That corruption is incredibly destructive, which is why Obama has promoted it.

    The environment of Soviet corporatism that existed just prior to their collapse is exactly what Obama and his regime are converting the US into. Failed capitalism becomes failing communism, with always degrades to totalitarianism. This is Obama’s final destination for us.

      Sounds like You are saying that Hobammy has drank his share and then some of the Kosherized Koolaid eh….

      If you read the Protocols of the zion elders, you shall find that according to the protocol writers it was Their very Own tribe members whom invented BOTH Communism AND Capitalism…Both of which at some future point They planned to Merge as One in their final games of total controlership and total deeded Ownership of planet earth and All it contains…including People!

      So far with crony scam capitalism being all we have seen our entire lives (I am close to 63 years old now) it seems those elders of zioni protocols and those who have used it since first discovered in aprox late 1895 ad era, has proven this to be fact.

      If I recall correct the protocols are a grand total of just aprox 22 chapters, sub divided into sections etc so yes a person seeking real answers as to the many whys and hows and especially the WHOMS responsible can read and research it quite eaisily now…Plus it seems every week now another two dozen new pro-truth/facts websites come online and many contain the actual full protocols as written, but of course in English….Just do Not Fall for the many numerous whinny crys that those protocols are just a “Forgery”!!!!!…..That word forgery is akin to Rayyyssssist and antisemite and used likewise as Weapons to Stiffle truth seeking and truth Speech at all costs!

      One issue is 100% certain and it is that once you read it…You like everybody before you that read it will be amazed and baffled at just how close to 100% as wrote has Happened since wrote!….it is almost as accurate and true as prophesy spoken by true God prophets….Excpet it was totally Inspired not by God but by Satan and that too becomes easy to comprehend once you read it.

      Read the zio elders protocols and you too will know in advance of every tiny detail of whats been done and whats comming Next!

    The poor sheeple he says are battering rams for the elitists collectivism?? The poor sheeple put them there in those positions from those collectivists buying votes(welfare, entitlements, etc). They don’t seem to suffer because they always get a bail out in some assistance or other, keeping the dependency in perpetual motion, teaching generations of poor to stay poor, stupid and lazy, and vote democrat.

  14. “It’s not the voters that decide elections….it’s who counts the votes”.
    Don’t ever forget that. Americans will overwhelmingly reject the democrats and vote for an outsider like Trump or Carson, if they overcome the GOP machine and win the nomination. BUT….the vote counters will steal the election again as they did in Obama’s re-election. Thru ballot stuffing, re-districting, non voter ID, illegals voting, dead people voting, multiple voting, etc…the winner by a nose will be a Democrat, and likely Clinton.
    Next year at this time you will finally realize that America is FINISHED.!!!
