Iceland: Saudi Arabia of the Left? 11

For some time I have argued that the feminazi/therapeutist Left is every bit as much an enemy of sex worker rights as the Religious Right. This more or less proves my point. Emma Goldman said way back during the pre-suffrage era that this is what you would eventually get if you gave middle class liberal and socialist women the vote. Down with democracy! Aristocracy, forever!

On Agrarianism, Part 2 by Matthew Raphael Johnson

“The “clash of civilizations” is, in a very literal sense, a clash of God and Mammon. The Islamic revolutionaries are driven by a fanatical devotion to their god and the promises they believe he has made to them if only they take up arms on his behalf. The nations of the West are driven by an almost as fanatical devotion to Mammon, that is, to wealth, luxury, power, pleasure and privilege. Further, the culture of the West combines this unabashedly materialist ethos with rejection of strength and discipline in favor of a maternalistic emphasis on health, safety, “sensitivity”, “self-esteem”, “potential”, “personal growth”, “getting in touch with one’s inner child”, “feelings” and other concepts common to pop culture psychobabble. Of course, the socio-cultural ramifications of this is to create a society of weaklings, mediocrities and crybabies.”

Interview: Sebastian Ernst Ronin of the Renaissance Party of North America 3

Read it here.

Mr. Ronin is the Chairman of the Renaissance Party of  North America (RPN), for which I am the Secessionist Outreach officer.  This is a brand new party, having been formed only in December of 2009, and it is the only political party in North America that I would even consider becoming involved with at present.  The party’s mission statement and philosophical outlook is light years ahead of any of its competitors, as it combines syndicalist/distributist economics, radical decentralization, “archeofuturism” and other ENR-inspired ideas, anti-globalism, peak oil theory, anti-Cultural Marxism, anti-political correctness, anti-imperialism, a Spenglerian view of history, pan-secessionism, race-realism, a strident yet reasonable environmentalism, a social conservatism that is measured and libertarian, neo-paganism within a wider spirit of religious toleration, and criticism of mass immigration in the name of civilizational survival and self-preservation.  In other words, all of the best and most far-sighted contemporary ideas are being pulled together into a unified and syncretic whole.

The Consumer Protection Agency Reply

by Josh Fulton

http://joshfulton.blogspot.com/2010/03/consumer-protection-agency.html

I had heard about this, and hadn’t really thought much about it. I guess if I had any reactions to the idea, they were probably positive. Elizabeth Warren seemed likable and well-meaning, and if she’s pushing for it, why not?

Then I started watching this video of her on Charlie Rose, and I started thinking “Oh, it’s another regulatory agency.” One person’s “protections” are another person’s “regulations.”

I’m not exactly sure what this agency would “protect” or “regulate,” but the example Elizabeth Warren used was credit card contracts. The problem is they’re too long. Well, I think most people would agree with that, but how do we get the change most people want?

I think we can see how other “regulatory” agencies have worked in the past. Look at the SEC who let Bernie Madoff continue his Ponzi scheme for years despite warnings. Look at the FDA whose ‘Food Safety Czar’ is a former Monsanto chief lobbyist. Government regulatory agencies have a funny habit of becoming “captured.”

The solution isn’t government regulation, but free market regulation. Only the free market can determine what businesses deserve to succeed or fail. Some people may say that we have free market regulation now and that it hasn’t worked, but no, we do not have a free market in just about any sector of the economy.

Let’s just take a look at two different time periods to see how government intervention affects the economy in general. In 1920, industrial production fell 25%. Unemployment increased nearly nine fold. Yet the government did not intervene much, and the economy was in recovery beginning in 1922.

Compare this to 1930, when industrial production had only fallen 12% from its 1929 peak, but because of government intervention such as the Smoot-Hawley tariff and the National Industrial Recovery Act, the country spiraled into the Great Depression. No American depression had ever lasted so long.

Even today, government “regulations” are ever-present in virtually every industry. Between 2001 and 2009, there were 159 “economically significant” new regulations created. “Economically significant” means that they cost the economy $100M or more. The regulation ranged from boosting fuel economy standards for light trucks to continuing a ban on bringing torch lighters into airplane cabins. In 2009, $42.7B was spent just on “regulatory activities,” meaning issuing and enforcing regulations.

How does the government intervene in the credit card market? Well, the most obvious way is through the Fed setting the federal funds rate (even though the Fed is technically a “quasi-governmental” agency.)

The Fed allows Chase, BoA, and Citi, who collectively control over half of the nation’s outstanding credit card debt, to borrow for money .25%. That’s not a market rate. It’s a rate that’s created by the Federal Reserve. Anyone who wants to borrow at the same rate has to go through the hoops of chartering a bank. Is it any surprise that we begin to reward bad actors when we make it so difficult to enter a market?

The solution to “consumer protection” is to get rid of government-caused distortions in the market in order to allow competition, not to create new “regulators.”

Even the Stormfronters get it, when the anarcho-leftoids don't 16

Someone showed me these comments about myself on the “Stormfront” white nationalist site. Read them here.

Now why is it that even fascists, Nazis, and “white supremacists” can discuss my perspective with some level of honesty, accuracy, and intelligence, but anarcho-leftoids can’t? What is it about contemporary anarchism that it seems to attract such dregs? Are such elements simply a manifestation of the decay of our civilization in its most extreme form? How did an ideological movement that is supposedly so visionary and far-sighted degenerate to its present level? Perhaps Ortega y Gasset had the answer to this perplexing question.

“The “clash of civilizations” is, in a very literal sense, a clash of God and Mammon. The Islamic revolutionaries are driven by a fanatical devotion to their god and the promises they believe he has made to them if only they take up arms on his behalf. The nations of the West are driven by an almost as fanatical devotion to Mammon, that is, to wealth, luxury, power, pleasure and privilege. Further, the culture of the West combines this unabashedly materialist ethos with rejection of strength and discipline in favor of a maternalistic emphasis on health, safety, “sensitivity”, “self-esteem”, “potential”, “personal growth”, “getting in touch with one’s inner child”, “feelings” and other concepts common to pop culture psychobabble. Of course, the socio-cultural ramifications of this is to create a society of weaklings, mediocrities and crybabies.”

Why are those who espouse Univeral Love, Tolerance, and ‘Human Brotherhood,’ usually the most screwed up people you’ve ever met, socially and emotionally? Not to mention some of the nastiest and most self-centered narcissists around?”
