The Anti-Subjectivist Manifesto: The Case for Consent

blowback

    Preface   “It is not difficult to avoid death, gentlemen; it is much more difficult to avoid wickedness, for it runs faster than death.” - Socrates, Apology            The nature of the manifesto is to inform others. To profess some great insight, motivation, or cause, in a manner that is both poignant and powerful. Our goal with this piece is to do just that, for an ethical theory known as “Anti-Subjectivism”, a theory that not only offers a normative framework for determining the “rightness” or “wrongness” of a given set of actions, but also a meta-ethical logic...

Waging War Against the Dark Occult Ruling Class. Mark Passio & Keith Knight

passio kck

https://youtu.be/PJPdrTifn14 The religion of “authority” is based on the illusion and falsehood that some are masters who may set arbitrary dictates which are not based in morality and enforced by violence, while others are slaves who have a moral obligation to obey the arbitrary dictates set by the masters... And the biggest manifestation of this universal world religion called the “belief in authority” is “government.” – Mark Passio, Founder of WhatOnEarthIsHappening.com   The Painful Truth: The order follower always bears MORE moral culpability than the order giver, because the...

Medusian Liberty

wildflowers of liberty

“A home might be a pretty little house Filled with people and things Comfort and ease A home might be a lean to on the beach Nothing but waves rolling in The sun on my skin A home might a tent filled with friends And wherever I go I’m home with them A home might be nothing at all Just the trees up above Songs and the stars I love Don’t tell me what my life needs to be All that I need to be home Is to be me and be free I just want to be free Living free “  Freedomcat – “Living Free” Myths are not real. They are stories that are told to convey morals and lessons. History and culture is rife...

Capitalism Puts the Poor First

pexels alexander isreb 1797428

The socialist left says the evidence capitalism oppresses the poor is that free markets relocate factories to the poorest nations in order to pay the lowest wages. And when wage rates rise in poor nations like South Korea and Japan, they move their factories over to new poor nations like China and Indonesia, and then again likewise on to the next poor nations like Vietnam and Bangladesh. I see that as evidence of the opposite; it's evidence of free markets bringing jobs to the poorest-of-the-poor, raising their living standards to humane levels over a generation or two, and then moving on...

Facebook Lifts Ban on Calls for Violence (But Only Against Russians)

network logo connection facebook social network

Anyone following social media’s “Community Standards” knows how selectively they are enforced. Your humble writer was permanently banned from Twitter in 2019 for using a word to describe Sean Hannity’s mental slowness that is otherwise used perhaps millions of times per day by others with full impunity. Likewise, calls for violence against Sen. Rand Paul are also made routinely with impunity, in direct violation of the stated “Community Standards.” But even the hypocrisy and cynicism we have seen to this point by Big Social Media does not prepare one for a shocking development today,...

How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization! (Book Summary by Popular Liberty & Keith Knight)

how the catholic church built western civilization! (book summary by popular liberty & keith knight)

https://youtu.be/ud_MB9GwFfg For the last fifty years, virtually all historians of science— including A. C. Crombie, David Lindberg, Edward Grant, Stanley Jaki, Thomas Goldstein, and J. L. Heilbron—have concluded that the Scientific Revolution was indebted to the Church. The Catholic contribution to science went well beyond ideas—including theological ideas—to accomplished practicing scientists, many of whom were priests. For example, Father Nicholas Steno, a Lutheran convert who became a Catholic priest, is often identified as the father of geology. The father of Egyptology was Father...

Free Crack Pipes? Time to Pardon Tommy Chong

tommy chong at hash bash

Conservative publications have accused the Biden administration of planning to distribute $30 million worth of free crack pipes and other paraphernalia as part of its effort to achieve “racial equity” among “underserved communities.” The original notice for federal grants included provisions to pay for “safe smoking kits/supplies” but the Biden administration insists that no federal funds will be specifically used to purchase crack pipes. But taxpayers will get screwed anyway thanks to federal distribution of free condoms under the same program. While “harm reduction” is the stated goal...

Popular Sovereignty Convoy – The Rebellion Of The Working Class

2022 01 31 08 30

https://twitter.com/JamesMelville/status/1486981696658550785 As regimes across the west engage in an arms race to see how much power they can exercise over their citizenry in the name of Covid, it has become increasingly obvious that the freedom to assemble is a privilege handed to the loyal, not a right afforded to free citizens. The fact that a doctrine of individual rights, liberal democracy and constitutional government has in no way inhibited the dynamic expansion of government power in western countries should give pause to those who have assumed these as shared values. It is clear...

Will COVID Lockdowns Make 2022 the Year of Bitcoin?

bitcoinchart

I don’t necessarily like to do so-called ‘annual prediction’ posts. Having written a ton of them for the newsletters I’ve written over the years, looking back on them is always a bit cringe-inducing. But 2021 was a crazy year and one where so much happened that changed the landscape it looks like one of those necessary evils for 2022. In fact, I may wind up doing more than I normally do. After being on Bitcoin Magazine’s Fed Watch podcast in December, I was asked to do a 2022 Predictions article for them. It just dropped over there. Is 2022 the Year Bitcoin Proves Itself on the World...

The Human Under the Numbers

sadako hospital 1955 noretouch

The story of Anne Frank is tragic. If not for the words that she wrote in her diary, she would be a digit of history. Her diary is relatable, and the thoughts that collected inside her being during a horrible time in history gives the reader an idea of who she was. She is immortalized because of the little things that she wrote, not because of any great deeds recorded by others. As a victim of tyranny she is remembered as an innocent murdered. She is a story found inside the numbers. Thanks to her diary, we have a human figure to know and mourn, despite the mechanized bureaucratic...
