The case against pessimism

There is a lot woe-is-us going on based on the alleged omnipotence of evil and the propagandized status of most Americans.  Even Wall Street is expecting a Blue Wave in November, we’re told, as the votes of 538 individuals called electors will officially determine which party occupies the White House.  Though electors pledge to support a specific presidential or vice presidential candidate, “faithless electors” have turned up 165 times in American history, most recently in 2016.  You remember that election, don’t you?  

A faithless elector is one who breaks his pledge.  In 2016, according to Wikipedia, 

a movement dubbed the Hamilton Electors co-founded by Micheal Baca of Colorado and Bret Chiafalo of Washington . . . attempted to find 37 Republican electors willing to vote for a different Republican in an effort to deny Donald Trump a majority in the Electoral College and force a contingent election in the House of Representatives. [Of the ten members who attempted to break their pledge] three of these votes were invalidated under the faithless elector laws of their respective states, and the elector either subsequently voted for the pledged candidate or was replaced by someone who did. . . 2016 was the first election in over a hundred years in which multiple electors worked to alter the result of the election.  Electors were subjected to public pressure, including death threats. [Emphasis added]

With the vitriol against Trump at least as high now as it was then, a corrupt Electoral College vote may be Democratic Plan B for evicting him. 

I think most people sense that something corrupt is in the works, whether it’s the College or something else.  And they are not wrong.  But this is nothing new, nor is it a case of black vs. white.  It’s bipartisan. 

The State has convinced its subjects that theft through taxation and inflation is necessary for the operation of government. The Wave, if it’s blue, will seize more of their wealth and distribute it in such a way that it appears only the fat cats are being robbed while the rest are being fed, clothed, educated, and everything else people used to work for.  Thanks to Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), the sky is now the legitimate limit for government spending.  And the public loves it.  The public loves free money, has always loved free money and eagerly awaits the steady flow of more free money.  If they understood it better they would love the FED, the government-licensed counterfeiter, the creator of free money.  They especially love free money at the expense of the fat cats. 

Clearly, since Trump and Pelosi both agree on the necessity of free money, MMT is not unique to the Blue Wave.  Neither Red nor Blue need fear voter rejection for supporting it — quite the contrary.  This is not to say there won’t be serious repercussions.  Try as they might, politicians and their home-bred economists will never triumph over reality. 

But if it’s not money, why are so many people afraid of what lies ahead?

The coming nightmare is one in which Friends of the Street Thugs will be calling the shots from atop the pyramid of power.  Law and order will be in the hands of those who despise it.  It will be open season on deplorables for the next four years, after which they will exist as an endangered species. 

The Blue leader, whoever it turns out to be, will look far left to assign key administrative posts, with the caveat that the military remain untouchable.  Following the Keynesian prescription for economic calamity, they’ll need the war machine ready for a major confrontation when the free money stops buying things and the media are urging people to demand someone who talks funny to blame.  

As the military has no trouble finding boogeymen to justify its budget, so public health officials will keep the public half-faced with corona enemies.  Suppression of rebuttals on social media will accelerate.  Even some non-traditional culture will be wiped out — one possibility being the recently-surging homeschooling movement.  An obedient citizen is a state-educated citizen.   Can’t have deplorables teaching their kids, which they will try to do anyway.  Thus, can’t have deplorables.

Such is the Blob rolling our way. 

We've been through worse

Should we lose any sleep over this?  No.

Think about it: The country has been through much worse.  Not us, personally, but Americans during the Civil War and the two world wars.  For those who need briefing on the Civil War see Thomas DiLorenzo’s excellent work.  One result of Lincoln’s war was the death of federalism — the states became second-class members of the great unity called the United States, not these United States.  Later, Woodrow Wilson proved to be an effective conman by running on the slogan “he kept us out of war” in 1916, then after being re-elected pleaded for Congress to send American boys overseas to murder and be murdered so Morgan’s investments wouldn’t go sour.  Preceding the Armistice of November 11, 1918 the Influenza Pandemic arrived in April that killed more people than the war-- between 20 and 40 million people.  Other estimates are higher.  Unlike today’s corona scare the flu took its heaviest toll on the young.   

The death rate for 15 to 34-year-olds of influenza and pneumonia were 20 times higher in 1918 than in previous years (Taubenberger). People were struck with illness on the street and died rapid deaths. One anecdote shared of 1918 was of four women playing bridge together late into the night. Overnight, three of the women died from influenza (Hoagg). Others told stories of people on their way to work suddenly developing the flu and dying within hours (Henig).  (source)

And for the survivors the pain was only beginning.  First the Crash of 1929 that the FED was created to avoid but in fact caused, then Hoover’s meddling, then FDR’s New Deal created the dark decade of the Thirties, followed by the inferno of another world war, heir to the first one and much worse in terms of casualties and destruction. From WW II emerged the National Security Act that created the National Security State, a hallmark of totalitarian regimes found right here in “free” America.  And we were soon off on another war, this one Cold though interrupted by hot ones in Korea and Vietnam.  

After all that and much more — 9/11, the Bush lies justifying foreign invasions, the Great Recession (see an excellent video on this) — we’re still standing. 

Unlike Americans during the regimes of Lincoln, Wilson, FDR and others, people today have the exponentially-increasing power of information technology working for them.  They can swallow the propaganda of the media and political hacks or they can search and find other information outlets.  Nor are they passive receivers of information.  They can post their thoughts and findings in a blog or video and help shape a narrative that fits with reality.  People the world over are far less hopeless today in the onslaught of propaganda, and the result is the chipping away of State legitimacy.  Undermining State legitimacy boosts liberty, a condition we cannot live without.  Labeling views that oppose the State-MSM narrative as conspiracy theories has become laughable.  It’s the State and its partners that are conspiring against the rest of us, the latest evidence being the blown-up corona pandemic.  The State, in short, is killing us.

But if the State is a killer, what do we do for government?

Look around.  We’ve had it for a long time — it’s called the free market.  If you need help understanding it, see my latest book and let Libby and Justin explain it to you in my 10-minute video.

Why do we continue to venerate the State?

“The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes”

Attributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Ask almost any American adult: “Is government necessary?” and you’ll likely get an answer in the affirmative, perhaps with some qualifiers.  The fundamental idea that government is necessary for the functioning of any society is axiomatic in the sense that it’s taken for granted.  Without it, we’re told, all hell breaks loose and civilization is doomed.  This is why we are trained from an early age to pledge our allegiance to the State, in our case the United States of America.  It is the people in the nation’s capital, sometimes adhering to the wisdom of our Founders, that keeps us from sinking into barbarism, as they pass laws and issue decrees to keep us safe, healthy, and prosperous.

Government might be evil, as Thomas Paine argued, but it’s still necessary, unless it becomes intolerably evil, in which case a new government is needed.  It’s on that premise —- that some government is necessary — that we stake our lives and the lives of our loved ones.  

What kind of government do we have and what kind do we want?

With these questions in mind let’s take a look at some recent issues.

Ron Paul reports that the federal government is considering a law to force the federal reserve to combat racism with monetary policy.  The FED, in undertaking this responsibility, will keep counterfeiting American dollars and diluting lending standards to improve the lot of the poor, who are often people of color.  But counterfeiting dollars only helps first recipients of those dollars, not the poor.  Furthermore, granting loans to people while considering only their race is sentencing them to “ruinous debt.”  In addition to the other problems with federal reserve counterfeiting — depreciating the currency, creating the business cycle, funding the welfare-warfare state, making the money supply dependent on FED bureaucrats — the mandate to help the poor through federal reserve policy is an act of cruel deception.

The Audit the Fed bill, otherwise known as H.R. 24: Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2019, has a 4% chance of being enacted according to Skopos Labs.  A NYC-based company founded by computer scientist John Nay and two law professors, Skopos Labs uses “machine learning and natural language processing” to help “identify which [bills] are likely to emerge, or not, into the light of real-world impact.” The 4%-chance outlook is typical for most of the thousands of bills introduced.  

Any bill that threatens to drive a dagger into the heart of the FED will be defeated.  The power elite who benefit from FED policies will never allow a peasant revolt, although they’ll go through a pantomime of democratic deliberation to give the appearance of serious consideration.  

A Brookings Institution writer noted in 2015, 

If backers of the “audit the Fed” movement want to get rid of the agency, they should say so, and let that debate begin. If it does, central banks will win. No modern country operates without one, and it is inconceivable that the United States would prefer to have no central bank . . .

For those who understand central banking and its consequences (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and even here — for starters), it is quite conceivable.  A bill such as HR 24, though likely doomed to fail, might raise public awareness of the FED as a government-created monopoly counterfeiter.

Narrative control by way of deception

Paul Craig Roberts tells us that “Over the course of our history we Americans have been deceived about many things for the sake of political agendas.”  He then lists some of the better-known government scams of the 21st century: “September 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden and the Talliban, Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, the endless lies about Gadaffi and Libya, Russian invasion of Ukraine, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Russiagate, Impeachgate, Russian bounties to the Tallian to kill American soldiers, the lies about China, Somalia, and now the Covid Deception.”

Read his article for details of the Covid Deception — the widespread adoption of medically useless and often harmful masks, the move to outlaw cash, hospitals incentivized to code all deaths as Covid deaths, the war on cheap but proven-effective Covid remedies and prophylactics . . . the “bought-and-paid-for Western media” with its constant headlines of impending doom when the bug’s lethality is little different from the seasonal flu. 

Meanwhile, journalist John Pilger witnesses the extradition trial of journalist Julian Assange at London’s Central Criminal Court, the Old Bailey, with US media conspicuously absent.  Assange’s crime?  Truth-telling, the kind that exposed government criminality by way of Wikileaks files.  Writes Pilger:

The lead prosecutor, James Lewis QC, ex SAS and currently Chief Justice of the Falklands, by and large gets what he wants, notably up to four hours to denigrate expert witnesses, while the defence’s examination is guillotined at half an hour. I have no doubt, had there been a jury, his freedom would be assured. . . .

However, the defence has succeeded in demonstrating the extent to which Assange sought to protect and redact names in the files released by WikiLeaks and that no credible evidence existed of individuals harmed by the leaks. The great whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg said that Assange had personally redacted 15,000 files. 


Other than natural events like hurricanes and earthquakes, it is difficult to find social problems that don’t have government meddling as their root cause.  And if we recall Katrina, even natural disasters aren’t exempt from gross government incompetence (FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers).   

Diagraming our choices

Recently, Vasko Kohlmayer delineated what he considers the correct political spectrum: 

He writes:

In this paradigm, the spectrum is delineated by the degree of statism intended and aspired to by various political actors and ideologies. Thus, on the extreme left you have statist totalitarians while on the opposite side you have non-statists and state minimalists.

Oddly, there is nothing in the diagram that shows the possibility of society without a state (“non-statists”).  If I were to use such a schematic I would amend it to show No State to the right of Minimal State.  But even that is unsatisfying.  The US originally had a minimalist State under the Articles, but it soon headed left with the establishment of the Constitution.   

As the State grows in power it is called upon to grow even more.  Albert Jay Nock notes in Our Enemy, the State

State power has an unbroken record of inability to do anything efficiently, economically, disinterestedly or honestly; yet when the slightest dissatisfaction arises over any exercise of social power [people acting voluntarily], the aid of the agent least qualified to give aid is immediately called for.

The State is clearly appealing to certain individuals.  With its ability to tax and inflate, and offer legal privileges to certain industries, it is well-qualified to establish a plutocracy wherein the super-rich milk the political system.  

If all government is evil to some extent, why not get rid of it?  Why keep it around to grow into a monster in fine clothes, as it always does?  

The answer is, not all government is evil.  

The kind of government that imposes itself as a monopoly of force over a designated territory — commonly called a State — is the evil kind because its coercive nature is a violation of your liberty.  And mine.  What we and every other country on earth have is government-by-State.  

Coercive monopolies are damaging, and the State is literally the mother of all coercive monopolies.  It creates subordinate monopolies (such as the FED by way of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913) as favors to select groups (big bankers in the FED’s case) in return for their support.  Is there any doubt the FED and its printing press support the State?

But what do we have without a State?  

Answer: It’s obvious.  Government by the free market.  

Free markets have already proven their excellence in providing every other human want or need.  What is there to prevent them from performing the task of protecting us from aggression?  

Answer: Only the monopoly power of the State.

Another answer: The lack of courage on the part of the public and political experts.

As Judge Napolitano suggests, “What if when government fails to protect inalienable rights, we simply ignore it?”

I develop the idea of free market government here and here.

Who’s the boss?

Elections are a lot like wearing a face mask for protection against a virus.  Both are harmful but they do relieve anxiety, at least for some.

The similarities persist: There is shame in not voting as there is shame in not wearing a mask.  Voting has turned a country of rugged individuals into a country of serfs. Wearing a mask has become the perfect attire for serfs, as it keeps them compliant and fearful.  

Compliant, fearful people don’t make good boss material.

Who needs to be your boss?  The only one qualified for the job: You. 

Does that induce uneasiness?  Are you reluctant to get out of bed in the morning while others advance progress in quantum computing?  Does an accomplished lady such as Dr. Simone Gold, who holds both a medical and law degree, and who fights established authorities for what she believes is right, frighten you?  Are you willing to surrender boss-ship to some talking head on TV?  That would be a mistake.

Go ahead and learn from others, as Dr. Gold and billions of others have done, but restrict decisions about your life to the one who owns your life.  If you turn those over to someone else — might as well put on a mask and wait for your next orders.

“Man is a being of volitional consciousness,” an immigrant, long famous, once wrote.  

 “Man’s mind is his basic tool of survival. Life is given to him, survival is not. His body is given to him, its sustenance is not. His mind is given to him, its content is not. To remain alive, he must act, and before he can act he must know the nature and purpose of his action. He cannot obtain his food without a knowledge of food and of the way to obtain it. He cannot dig a ditch-or build a cyclotron—without a knowledge of his aim and of the means to achieve it. To remain alive, he must think.

    “But to think is an act of choice. . . .”

Don’t believe it?  Better make sure you’re stocked up on masks.  And if you live in South Dakota you must be miserable having to live under your ruthless governor, Kristi Noem.  But keep your attention on the State’s media mouths — CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, NY Times, PBS —.  They’ll provide the direction they want you to take.  

Big companies have organization charts.  They start with the CEO and board of directors and proceed downward.  Clearly, one can recognize who the boss is — the CEO.  He calls the shots, pending board approval.  He’s in charge.  Maybe you work for a company where the CEO is way above you in rank.  Don’t you wish you could be a CEO?

You are — regarding your life.  Or you could be if you assume the responsibility of being human.  This is not to say we act independently of others.  The CEO of a successful company recognizes his or her true bosses — the customers they serve.  Fail to serve them, and the company is doomed.  Steve Jobs learned this the hard way when he foisted the insanely-great original Macintosh on the world without a knowledge of what users needed — but he did learn and eventually saved the company.

In today’s world we have governments that have the power to tell us what to do.   This is wrong.  We need a government that recognizes our need to be in charge of our lives.  Is the coronavirus a new threat?  You decide — then act.  Wear a mask?  You decide — then act.  Put restrictions on your business?  You decide — then act.  Decisions such as those require knowledge.  You can choose to acquire that knowledge or take the word of who you believe are experts.  However you do it, you are deciding, then acting, for better or worse.  

Only a society free from coercive interference can provide the conditions needed to live in this manner.

And this means a stateless free market.  To cast your “vote” for a free market, please go here.

The one lockdown that’s killing us all

In the 1930s, first Hoover then Roosevelt tried to fix the economy that would have fixed itself if it had been left alone, which was the lesson decidedly not learned from the depression of 1920-21 and the Panics of the 19th century.  If it had been left to recover on its own from federal reserve meddling, there might have been a chance the meddler would have been shut down.

But really, there was no chance.  Anyone who understands the FED’s purpose — keeping the biggest banks solvent through counterfeiting — knows repealing the law that established it was not a thinkable option, given the corrupt powers that supported it.  

So the FED, supercharged after FDR made owning gold coins a felony, remained on the scene and advanced its career as an untouchable counterfeiter, creating a legacy of inflation, a policy indispensable to a welfare/warfare/surveillance state.  Big, suffocating government doesn’t thrive on direct theft (legislated taxation) alone.     

State growth also creates connections with individuals and organizations not formally a part of the State apparatus.  It has a name: Crony capitalism. Since the State deals with others by force and thrives within its sphere of influence by bestowing favors, there are always people seeking privileges, such as protection from competition, tax breaks, or monetary outlays (bailouts).  In return, the State receives support in the form of political endorsements, election donations, votes, and marginalizing the views of those opposed to State policies or the State itself. 

Any crisis arriving on the scene, whether State-caused or natural, is subject to State handling.  People expect the State to “Do something,” and it does.  Today, the State is doing plenty about the coronavirus, and no surprise, it is creating a social catastrophe.

What hath the State wrought?

It’s a challenge to document 2020’s outburst of tyranny when so many levels of government are contributing to the mayhem, but here are a few:

(1)  States ordering “non-essential” businesses to close, while letting “essential” businesses remain open.  If a business weren’t essential it wouldn’t be doing business.  Fortunately, some business owners are at least defying the orders

(2) With so many small businesses shut down and employees furloughed or fired, the federal government turned to its counterfeiter to ease their pain — short term relief only, of course.  Most Americans aren’t complaining, but they will when they’re greeted with “monumental tax increases” that could eventually wipe out the middle class.  But the CARES act is rarely presented in such truthful terms.  Instead, the government with its astronomical debt somehow found $2.2 trillion in its back pocket it had apparently forgotten about, so the Treasury (not the FED) passed it out to the people, including thousands of foreign workers living overseas.  Money is truly no object when it’s controlled by the government and its printing press sidekick.  

(3)  Stay-at-home orders for everyone, even after the virus has shown an affinity for the elderly with existing medical problems and almost no concern for healthy people under 30.  Lockdowns prevent herd immunity and delay recovery.  People jailed in their homes get depressed, divorced, commit suicide, abuse spouses and children, drink too much, and fail to care for other health issues.  They also tend to stay unemployed if they can’t work from home.  The State knows all this.

(4) Mask confusion.  State health authorities saying early on that masks aren’t needed for everyday activities then reversing themselves. Studies and demonstrations showing the futility of masks, along with their numerous downsides, have yet to remove the mandates.  

(5)  Making people afraid to get too close to one another.  We must keep at least six feet apart (unless you’re rioting for a leftist cause).  States have tried hard to outlaw hugs.  We can find ludicrous though often creative ways some people circumvent normal hugging.

(6)  Outlawing or restricting outdoor recreational activities.  Remember the video of the cop chasing a lone jogger off the beach?  Or the young mother who was tasered and arrested for not wearing a mask while watching her middle school son play football? 

(7)  Hobbling professional sports.  Fake fans in the seats, along with crowd noises lifted from a video game.  No tailgating.  Announcers and commentators broadcasting remotely or spread far apart.  NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fining two head coaches $100,000 apiece for not wearing masks properly on the sidelines.  And also fining their teams $250,000 apiece.

(8)  Canceling the NCAA basketball tournaments for both men and women.  At first canceling, then allowing under restrictions, the college football season.  Two major conferences have yet to begin play.  TV viewers are seeing cheerleaders with masks strapped to their faces cheering from the stands or from the sidelines, with gaping holes in the bleachers where fans normally sit.  Meanwhile, amid all the PC caution, the players engage in a rough contact sport on the field. But even under duress the free market comes through

At LSU last week, fans were able to purchase a cut out of themselves to be placed in the stands where 82,000 empty seats looked on. The cost? $50.
 Depressing, but it’s a choice and a way for the school to recover a bit of lost revenue.   

(9)  Criminally, the suppression and in some cases outlawing of a demonstrably effective treatment for SARS-CoV-2, hydroxychloroquine.  The government has never before “restricted physicians from prescribing an FDA approved medication,” according to America’s Frontline Doctors.

Santa Monica cardiologist Dr. Dan Wohlgelernter said during a June 18 interview:

This is an FDA approved drug for 65 years; it’s generic, cheap, widely available. We give it to pregnant women, to breastfeeding women, to elderly patients, to patients who are immune-compromised…

Initially, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for HCQ, and CQ but then later revoked it.  During the brief period under the EUA the “strategic national stockpile” amassed 63 million doses of HCQ.  Mylan and Novartis donated millions of doses to the stockpile, with Bayer kicking in another two million doses of CQ.  Trump called it a game-changer on March 21 and that changed the game.  On June 15 the FDA revoked EUA, saying: 

Specifically, FDA has determined that CQ and HCQ are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.  Additionally, in light of ongoing serious cardiac adverse events and other serious side effects, the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use.  This warrants revocation of the EUA for HCQ and CQ for the treatment of COVID-19.

Most states had already placed restrictions for its use as a prophylactic and by limiting prescriptions to two weeks with no refills.  

Twenty-year emergency room physician Dr. Simone Gold was fired for appearing in a video in which she advocated HCQ for use against COVID-19.  The video, which went viral, was removed from social media.  Her employer threatened to fire her colleagues if she didn’t go quietly.  

An ongoing evaluation of HCQ called HCQTrial, done anonymously by PhD researchers and scientists under the name @CovidAnalysis (to avoid another “Simone Gold” incident), presents findings for countries that do or do not use HCQ.  As the chart shows, early treatment makes a big difference, and countries using HCQ show far lower mortality rates.  

I’ll let the reader decide whether the war on HCQ is at all related to the Left’s war on Trump and the lucrative revenue stream from government sponsorship of a rushed-to-market vaccine.

(10)  If the State is concerned with our health, why aren’t their spokespeople urging us to boost our immune systems?  That’s our first line of defense against any infectious disease, along with common sense.  Why aren’t they now, in October, urging us to load up on vitamins D3, K2, and C especially, along with zinc?  Why aren’t they classifying HCQ as an OTC drug as it is in many countries, to be used as a prophylactic?  


In most circles the fact of government’s necessity is never mentioned but always assumed.  Thus, the push for reforms, to get better people in positions of authority, to pass needed legislation on top of the mountains that already exist.  Always — work within the system.  Don’t rock the boat.  Our foundations are still solid.  Rarely does anyone call into question the need for government-as-we-know-it — the State.

Does the State’s virus management give you confidence it’s acting in your best interest?  For me, it’s like something out of Orwell or Nazi Germany.

Without the State there would be chaos, we’re told.  What do we have today, if not chaos?  I haven’t even mentioned the riots going on, where people defending themselves are charged with serious crimes. The rioters hate the police, and seeing the police stand down, peaceful people now fear for their lives and load up on guns.

And now we’re being hit with black lives matter and only black lives matter.  It is no longer a fringe movement.  It exists virtually unchallenged.  No one, no matter their race, can live long under that slogan.

We already have a government we can live with.  It’s called the free market but it’s been sabotaged by the State.  It’s locked down, meaning not allowed to operate.  We need to set it free.

I’ve written a short book about it and produced a 10-minute video explaining it.  

If you, thoughtful reader, want a stateless free market you must tell the world you want it.  At the end of the video I ask you to vote by giving the video a thumbs up or down.  I urge you to give it a thumbs up.  Without your affirmation the stateless free market will forever remain a fantasy and today’s nightmare will only get worse.

The State Unmasked
