Quotes of the Week:

“As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual trends compensatingly to increase. And the dictator…will do well to encourage that freedom in conjunction with the freedom to daydream under the influence of dope, movies, and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate.”

                                                      -Aldous Huxley (Left-Libertarians take note)

“I was once a big advocate of North West Migration back in the eighties when it was referred to as The Northwest Territorial Imperative. This was before I actually visited the Northwest and realized how freaking cold it gets up there. I feel that if people are going to fight, actually kill and die for land, that it should be the most hospitable and fertile land available. Also after living in Asia for a few years, I saw that ethnically homogeneous states have their own assortment of serious problems.

What I see as the biggest fault in these proposals…is the belief that it is possible for an insurrection to force the system to a point where it would be willing to allow secession rather than engage in a bloody and costly counterinsurgency to hold on to Northwest States. This plan fails to acknowledge strategic importance of the region, Wyoming contains the bulk of the nations nuclear arsenal and Montana is sitting on top of one of the largest untapped oil reserves on the planet. There is no way they are going to give up these states. I also believe that Americas perceived failures in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East gives people the false impression the U.S. can be forced to make peace and concessions. I on the other hand, believe that America has always achieved it’s objectives in these conflicts and that if actually forced to, an intact, operational America will kill every man, woman and child on this continent before it allows any part of it to escape it’s control.

I personally believe that partition could only be achieved in conjunction with total systemic collapse. But in the event of such a collapse, I would imagine that free association will lead to a natural, functional and sustainable equilibrium anyway. I predict this would lead to a multiplicity of diversified states, not all based on race. The Mormons are already working towards a religious based state and I assume that other groups will define and segregate themselves along lines of religion, political inclinations, geographical preference, sexual orientation and other lifestyle considerations as well as race. And I hope that there will always be integrated cosmopolitan regions, some minorities within every state and a degree of hospitable travel and exchange between all states. ”

“Although anarchism can take the form of class struggle, it’s not defined by class struggle, it’s defined by opposition to the state or to rulership in general (which may include class rule), to hierarchy, authoritarianism, centralization, bureaucracy, etc…A nationalized health care system, contrary to expectations, would actually increase people’s individual freedom — for instance, by freeing them from dependence on jobs they hate for health care…In that sense, the opponents of nationalized health care also have a claim on the label “anarchist,” so long as they are also opposed to the present system of giant health insurance bureaucracies and employer provided insurance.

(The Left’s) analysis of race is also out of date, at least for the urban coastal areas of the USA like New York, LA, or Miami. American society is now multicultural. Does racism still exist? Sure it does, but it’s much more complex than the classic black/white right/wrong racism of the 50s and 60s. There’s a rainbow of people and racism, or simply hostility towards other cultural or language groups, runs in all directions. You say the “right wing” libertarians are all white? Well so are many left wing anarchist groups. You say white people don’t like to talk about race? But there’s an obvious reason why they don’t: there are severe penalties for saying the “wrong” thing about race, thanks to the politically correct left. Also, for white people, their racial identity has been made into a source of shame, whereas the opposite has occurred for blacks, for whom many benefits and privileges now accrue in the form of affirmative action.”
