    Newsweek: Isis Makes Up to $100 Million a Year Smuggling Ancient Artifacts From Iraq and Syria The question is this. Who is vetting these antiquities prior to being sold on the antiquities black market? Well, it's the only relevant question anyway.

    Actually, I'd be for anarchism if it could work. But it can't work. And we could prove that by first asking if we can opt out once we've opted into it. Sure, one may be permitted to opt out as a matter of political grandstanding by whatever hierarchy exists within the pogram, but what happens when one starts his own private miitary and private roads and private fire company and private everything. I'll tell you what happens. Eventually, there will be a knock at one's door. More likely, though, it'd be kicked down much like the consequences of living under A Democracy. Rule by Omnipotent Majority. To quote from a very good book on the topic, The Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.

    Some may very well condemn it. And usually after the fact. But it does not change the fact of the matter. And I stress the word 'some' Wandering around mainstream political environments these days, you'd be hard pressed to run into anyone who identifies as an anarchist who has really thought it all the way through. Similar to the situation of libertines who think they're libertarians. And unfortunately these are the people who are redefining libertarianism and turning it into some libertine play ground. Much the same as today's anarchist make anarchism sound like it's something that it isn't. Ultimately, it comes down to one simply not understanding their own ism. Get out of the echo chamber once in a while and you'll surely witness it. Then again, you don't really have to leave the echo chamber. Heck, just a few months ago here we witnessed a movement from within for the end of property rights. We witnessed a direct movement from within for the end to the very rights to Individual Life and Liberty. And under the banner of liberty no less. You could take a guy like occams and make case that he has thought it through and concluded the positives and negatives in a realistic manner. But wandering around the political wild, this is not the general case. It's usually just a bunch of hipsters holding up a sign or popping off on a keyboard about something they read on the Internet and inviting consequences that they cannot even begin to understand. But that's how coercion works. The drones don't understand what they're actually working toward.

    "....and at the mercy of its least intelligent and most brutal members." Also. Ludwig did wisely reference Plato in "In Praise of Government." I read and hear many people refer to Plato's Republic. But I don't know if many of them who refer to it have actually read it. The fact of the matter is that Plato didn't even remotely discuss anything governmental in that work. And certainly nothing resembling a true Republic. It's humorous when friends do reference Plato in that regard. Which, as Ludwig notes in the work, does not take into consideration the nature of man. As far as most mainstream anarchists go, few understand that the socialists will come to them at gunpoint and force them to hand over their wealth at the end of their barrels in order to support their socialist program. It's funny. The grass is always greener on the other side, they say. But eventually, one ends up in the same situation they were trying to escape. Again, how to solve that problem...I dunno. Nobody knows how to fight anymore. Today, the will to finish something only lasts as far as the next reality show or humorous meme. And the fact of the matter is that only worthy men can be free men. As it is, it's impossible to escape the State. As it is, the more historic or popular spoken solution to the State is yet another form of the same State. Effectively the same monopoly which must always resort to aggression in order to support itself.

    Not sure if anyone has stayed up to date with regard to protest permits (lol) at certain historic venues but the permitting system has become rather elaborate. It's especially difficult to land a permit to protest near historic monuments and parks. So keep an eye on any future venues where protests are taking place. Take note of the ease in landing permits versus the difficulty for some others to receive them. Monitor who's involved in those protests. Monitor police maneuvering. Monitor dialogue between media and elected representatives after the fact. I think that the repeated permit commentary in the video is likely the most important bit. Additionally the fact that it was acknowledged that there were some people who were not there to cause violence. Yet the stormtroopers (who were proudly displaying their military swat gear and strategic crowd containment maneuvering ability again tee hee hee hee hee) did herd them all together. There's more to say about it. I don't really feel like it, though. Here's what a free speech zone looks like these days...

    Well, we all understand that the right to property is the principal support for the very rights to Individual Life and Liberty. Or we should. The problem I have with the author is that he seems to be defining Man himself as his own primary foundation for moral code. Of course, we know that Man's nature is a mixture of good and evil and not perfectible in that regard. Given that Man's weakness in his nature is not perfectible, it must be recognized that the need for safeguards must exist. There's much to say about that. Government will always exist in some form as a consequence. And subsequently aggression. It's late, though. Perhaps tomorrow.

    History is a great indicator. We need only reference our history books to bear witness to the many civilizations which have been burned to the ground by some government tyrant in the name of some God. Neither government tyrants or religious tyrants are mutually exclusive in that regard. They require one another in order to establish and maintain control over people. If anyone wants to dispute it, I'll be in the neighborhood.

    Yeah, that, too. In fact, I got a message just yesterday from a guy asking me if I'd ship my vintage Breitling Chrono to Portugal. I just responded that I don't ship Internationally. The guy didn't have any buyer/seller feedback either.

    Yeah, me, too. I have a sock around here some place. Hehehehe. I always go to Ron when I'm looking for an answer to something. He rarely fails me. Not to bring her back into it but lily promotes veganism from a biblical perspective. I've never heard an actual practicing Monk discuss his reasoning for a plant based lifestyle, though. I'd be interested in making the comparison with the case that some Christians make in its support. If for no other reason than purely educational material.

    There was actually some industry penned legislation that specifically said that people had no right to know what was in their food. And it went further to say that the States didn't have the right to protect it's citizens right to know. I posted it around here some place. That kind of thing fundamentally takes away one's freedom of choice. Which is fundamental to Individual Liberty. That was actually a 'conservative' bit of tomscrewery. That wasn't about meat, or vegetables particularly. It was everything. I think they're still trying to get it into law.

    Yes, I know. I agree that the vast majority of them would. I was just putting it out there that not all of them are like that. That's all I was saying. I'm a big fan of leave me the heck alone. People are free to make rules for themselves so long as I'm not forced to equally do the same. It's a good rule to live by.
