    I'll indulge you: Public school is a phenomenon which is unfit to exist in a free society, which should never have existed in a free society, and actively undermines a free society. Public school is where people get the Stockholm Syndrome necessary to be incapable of seeing that freedom has always been a pipe dream here. Public school is where people get accustomed to accepting mild slavery and where they learn to call it "freedom". But only about 60% of that phenomenon is due to the "public" part of "public school". Public school is a large problem: but if liberty is your goal, school is still a problem, whether it's public or not.

    We don't even have that... a daycare that had only one provider screwing its kids would cease to exist in short order. We have indoctrination centers that also happen to teach times tables.

    https://www.biographyonline.net/humanitarian/baden-powell.html It's well known that Baden-Powell started the whole thing as a means of grooming boys for military service. That's not really in dispute. One can say it morphed into giving "them more meaning in life", and as long as one recognizes that the point was to give them meaning via military service (i.e., being a better vassal of the state) then one is being honest. But here's something I didn't know and I'm betting you didn't either...

    And in 16 years it has never struck you as odd that you were required to get three different badges in citizenship, only one badge each in anything useful, and badges that would have been helpful to secure employment were completely optional?

    Is Chanter another term for Reader? Vladyka is going to be tonsuring two Readers and two Subdeacons next week. I'm not one of them. People keep asking, and so far I haven't had to go beyond "no thank you". Between keeping a hand on Paisley to make sure she doesn't seize and kiss the floor, and the 9 month old boy who is becoming really mobile, both parents have enough going on without me trying to do more than sing. :D Yesterday we had a special assembly to buy a parcel of land, where we'll build our own temple. We're renting right now from an Anglican church, and we really like our old 1840's chapel, but we've outgrown it. It was getting pretty packed when Fr Alexander was there, but when he was replaced with Metropolitan Jonah, the thing we were expecting started to happen: for some reason having a Metropolitan around all the time has attracted even more people. Vladyka is digging in here - he's moving closer to the parish, and is looking for property to buy to set up a skete, and he's been personally involved with raising missions up to parishes multiple times. So really exciting (and scary) things are going on here. Since I'm the warden, I had to run the meeting where we voted on it... and I was NOT into it. I still have trust issues with church, which is held over from my Lutheran days... and the fact that my brothers in Christ at this Orthodox church contain a lot of federal law enforcement types doesn't help.... and so I just told everyone what I was feeling: that my primary concern is not buying property, or building a temple, but that nobody gets injured in the process. I've been saying that for a while... we have an excellent opportunity here to make some bitter enemies.

    Yes there are other options. I'll say that I think the JBP solution would fit here: "Clean up your damned room". I think the FSP has the right idea, but is lacking in execution details. I think if libertarians could just pick a county, one county, and actually have an agenda, that would make a meaningful difference. Something like step 1: all previous law enforcement agencies will be abolished, and a new one formed which will eschew professionals, be purely reactionary, respect human rights, recognize crimes as only those actions which have victims, obstruct superior agencies who are not like-minded, and above all, not fuck around at all when dealing with actual criminals. I think MS-13 wouldn't choose to operate in a county where there's such a thing as a wanted poster that says "subject has refused to answer 5 previous warrants for violent crime, public is advised to shoot on sight. $10,000 reward, tax free." As we've seen in this thread, the larger entities are the origin of the problem. Smaller entities CAN be the solution.

    Ok Danno... I'll marginally publicize (and paraphrase) your rep comment to keep the discussion going. I can see that r3v made an accusation that was unfounded. Nobody here is calling them all criminals. I think r3v might agree with this sentiment though: Whether you're using the criminal element to demonize the people themselves, or using it to demonize open borders, is kind of immaterial. Both statements exist in the same logic bucket. I myself conflate them regularly, but based on your feedback, I will aim not to in the future.

    We get it, Trump got "Pope Benedicted". He didn't say that. That should be the point, but Tucker goes too far in using that lie as an anti-immigration talking point.

    And now he's the man in charge of "making sure we keep our gun rights". This country looks more and more like an assylum as time goes on. I have to keep telling myself that it has always been this way, and the only difference is that now they can't stop us seeing it.

    I read the article mentioned below, and it does offer some nuance that's largely absent from the discussion. However, in the Video at the top of this page, Carlson says: The rest of the video after that, from 3:42 on, is pro-immigration claptrap. This is the sentiment echoed on this forum regularly by people who are responding on this thread. And that is what I was responding to when I pointed out factually that there is no inherent difference between immigration law and any other preventative law enforcement measure.

    No story, just statistics. If it's "he said" vs "She said", then the only way to have any attention paid to what "he said" is for "him" to have money and preferably fame, too. The entire legal system knows that if they don't do the right thing for a guy who is regularly on TV, they run the risk of the way they actually do things getting put on TV, too.

    Here's another one - there is also zero distinction between these two statements. "We need to stop people at the border so they don't become criminals." "We need to pass gun control because people are breaking the gun laws we already have."

    IOU a rep. I am really not sure how to put this in a way that makes it more clear. The problem is NOT immigration. The problem is NOT MS-13. The problem is LAW ENFORCEMENT. MS-13 exists in this country because law enforcement allows it to. The people whose job everyone thinks it is to do something about this are the same people who cower outside of a high school while a pasty, unbalanced, untrained, drugged up teenager murders his classmates.

    Anyone who thinks the result of the police investigation has nothing to do with him being a celebrity, and that if he wasn't he wouldn't be out on his ass with NO money and no kids, is deluding himself.

    Oh I get that... and what I'm trying to point out is, if we're changing the fundamental nature of police to something other than what the original intent was, we end up with something other than police. If law enforcers are held to the same standards as the rest of us in their interaction with others - forget a higher standard for a second and let's just think about an equal standard - then there is absolutely no reason why it can't be a volunteer force of average Joes. Take away their blessing to commit random acts of violence and you've totally abolished the current idea of the constabulary. I see that as a good thing and I don't see a point in not being up front about that with whomever is genuinely interested in solving these problems.

    Nobody has attacked anyone... yet. I attacked a position you seemed to hold and assumed else would take it in also. I started the post by asking questions. I am asking for clarification. Note: I am still asking for clarification. Like right now. I'm not throwing some alternate context on this and I'm not using nuance. I'm asking point blank: please clarify.

    In case anyone doesn't connect the dots - Miranda V Arizona was in 1966. That means modern policing existed for 120 years before anyone thought it might be a good idea to inform people being arrested that they supposedly have rights at all. ETA that was 35 years AFTER it became widely known they were TORTURING SUSPECTS.

    Do you really believe this??? You've been around here for seven years now, and you haven't gotten confirmation, ad nauseum, that police are held to a LOWER standard than regular folk - when they are held to any standard at all? Have you ever talked to police? As in, have you had their attention directed to you? How could you possibly have the impression that police are expected to know and protect citizens' rights? If police have any training in rights at all, it is presented as a list of things that have a potential to result in their bust not ending up in a conviction, and nothing more. They're not rights of citizens, they're hurdles for police. I would hope that everyone here would know at this point - not suspect, but KNOW - that qualified immunity is a key feature of police and is completely in line with their job as it was originally created. They were created initially to push people around, violate their rights, make their lives miserable, and punish them on behalf of the state for violation of its edicts. That is their job. If you look you can find examples of them doing this that go back to the 1840s when the job was first delineated in its modern form.

    "Could you please try to understand the opinions you're stooping to name-calling over?" - Nope. An opinion is based on fact. He has no facts. He's just spewing liberal bullshit to stir crap up.

    LIke it or not, SCOTUS never said corporations were people. SCOTUS never said corporations have the same rights that people do. If people are too stupid and / or lazy to actually read what the court said they deserve to be ridiculed and mocked.

    He can have an opinion about whether people in groups lose their rights just because they join a group. But refusing to acknowledge that at no point did the court say the group had rights means he isn't basing his opinion on reality. Therefore he isn't worthy if anything other than ridicule, and is also e too stupid to properly represent the liberty movement.

    Fuck him and his liberal thinking.

    Hey - regarding your post on tech, I agree in full. Idunno if you know, but I intend to get out of society completely with my wife and going to live on unclaimed or, ideally, gov't-"owned" land and essentially starting our own country with our family.

    I dislike how tech. has been used by society, but I blame society, not tech. and wish society could work with tech, but I don't think it can. This is why I'm leaving society. That solar forge sounds incredibly cool. I plan on loading up with books (e-books, mostly) and going with my wife to live in a cave essentially and we've been going over all sorts of plans to utilize the technology we can afford now to make our lives easier, but I think a lot of the technology used now has made Americans in general fat, boring, and stupid as all fuck.

    I wish technology would be utilized to give us more time to think and allow us to expand our minds. I hope I can help facilitate that and intend to write extensively on our experiment. We have a kid (and more on the way, ideally) on the way, so there will hopefully be a lot to write about. My wife's more the scientist and I'm just a writer and philosopher. I'm so excited to share my experiences and we're just waiting on the birth of our first child.

    -- I'm going way off-topic. Anyway, I just wanted to say I really appreciate your post and hope you'll post more in the future. I had no idea you were so creative and independent. I hope to see more of that, and more of you. I hope you'll share more of your own experiences because I believe in leading through example and I think you're a great speaker for the cause of individualism.




    To your question, I am not at all involved with society atm. I am unemployed except through my political volunteer positions in helping maintain websites. I worked, but I can't anymore knowing what it does -- and I also have a lot of social anxieties which discourage me from working at a "normal" job. Otherwise, we're working on fixing our house up to sell it and eventually want to get out of society completely so we don't have to fund this disgusting government causing the unnecessary deaths of civilians and military personnel.

    I hope to have more to share with you soon and just wanted to you to know how refreshing I found your post today.


    Idunno where you live, but I'd be interested in you and us having a beer together sometime to facilitate an open discussion.



    All the best,

    Ben
