Leech off the state?

Posted in Action items with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2009 by The New Activist

Now, there are multiple schools of thought on this, and I’m torn, no questions asked totally torn on this subject. I HATE the state, end of story, no questions about it.

So the question that remains, is should I continue my libertarian party mike stance, and refuse to take government handouts on principle,  or, should I go with the logical pursuit of my goal stance, which is to  suck as much as I can off the state while giving the minimum to it in order to further starve it?

PLEASE tell me what and why!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, so, I was banned from Bureaucrash! AWESOME! I assume it was for the somewhat critical blog I posted of lee doren and the subsequent lack of growth that I’ve seen on the site.  Apparently, Lee didn’t take too kindly to that one. Maybe I was too critical, IDK. But Lee still never answered what happened to my fr33agents group on the Bureaucrash website, which just up-and-disappeared one day. He says he has no idea what happened.

I WAS BANNED! Holy schnitzel! I think thats the first time I’ve ever been banned from, uhm, anywhere, especially online! It’s not like I called anyone any names, or made any threats. I just asked why lee hadn’t made good on his promise to attract a thousand new members just by mentioning Bureaucrash on his youtube channel. Oh, I did however, state that the dude had some hubris, which is a statement I stand by.

What the heck am I blithering about? Well, I’m going to be a host with Rick Caldwell on the new internet radio show, Infrequently Asked Questions. Things are still in the planning phase, but if everything turns out half as well as we hope, then it’s going to be amazing!

Ricks blog post about it is HERE.

Just for a bit of background info, Rick is a fan of linux, EEE computers, and liberty. The show itself will focus mostly on liberty, but also on whatever happens to fly into rick and I’s brains, which for me may be a lot about comic book movies and guns. We plan on having a lot of guests on the show, hopefully as co-hosts for that particular show.

Operation Iraqi Freedom, an utter FAILURE.

Posted in Action items, To Punish & Enslave with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2009 by The New Activist

Slice it any way you like folks. These people are at best moderately safer, and their promises of a “Representative Government” (when you find a government that actually represents the people, let me know) smashed to bits. The Iraqi Government announced plans to limit internet access today (Tuesday, August 4th) to prevent access to “All Web sites that glorify terrorism and incite violence and sectarianism” and any sites that “violate social morals with content such as pornography.”

It’s good that thousands of soldiers and (hundreds of?) thousands of Iraqi civilians died so that the new boss can pave the way for the old boss (metaphorical) to come back. At least we didn’t spend millions of dollars on this either, especially since the economy is failing and this might be considered a misallocation of resources.
Its so sad that so many of us bought in to both the myth of fighting for the Iraqi people and the possibility of a truthful, representative government for them. This should be a grave warning to us all, especially those who believe that a constitution ensures protection of listed rights.

The Iraqi constitution specifically protects all communications, physical, and electronic from government interference, and yet they march on.

In order to end the war we had to defeat Japan
Japan was training their 9-year-olds and women on the mainland to fight with bamboo sticks to the death if we invaded
Even after Stalin attacked Japan, Japan didn’t surrender
We were planning X-day—to invade all of Japan
That meant in order for us to win the War, would have to have killed every man woman and child we saw
So we dropped the first bomb—and they still didn’t surrender
We dropped the 2nd and they did
That saved millions and millions of Japanese lives
It was total Japaneses War where we literally invade and kill every man woman and child or drop two nukes
Surrender was the third option

I’ve heard rumors of good things coming our (bureaucrash survivors) way. Stay tuned here and to other sites (such as anarch.me, fr33agents.com, and the motorhome diaries) for updates on these developments.

The following are the NOOR chronicles on the events of the past few nights with the New Bureaucrash CiC. Suffice it to say, he seems neoconish, at best. By the way, Noor compiled these, hence the title noor chronicles.

I’ll update this as much as possible, but for the original stuff from noor check it out here

Peace and liberty,

May 30, 2009

8:31 pm – I got an email from the Xaq Fixx group on BCS, which had this content:
“A message from Xaq Fixx to all members of I support Xaq Fixx for Crasher-In-Chief on Bureaucrash Social!

Bureaucrash has announced their new CiC. I appreciate your support in my quest to carry on Pete and Jason’s vision as Crasher in Chief but CEI has decided it was not meant to be.
Thanks,
Xaq”

Going through the Lee Doren introductory blog post, which explained his linkages to right-wing and conservative sites, including “Hot Air, Michelle Malkin, Instapundit, Gateway Pundit, Pajamas Media, Right Wing News, Ace of Spades, NewsBusters and Rush Limbaugh’s top headlines.”

8:35 pm – The link to Lee Doren’s intro blog post on Bureaucrash (http://bureaucrash.com/2009/05/29/meet-lee-doren/
) was linked to in the Skype chatroom.

Everyone in the Skype chat was shocked at the idea of this kind of pro-state right-winger being the Crasher-in-Chief of an anti-state organization, and within a few moments of browsing through his posts many of us were talking about taking action against this. We also noticed the changes in the Bureaucrash website, including the removal of the Political Affiliation profile question which had all libertarian and anarchist options.

around 9 pm – We also found out that Lee Doren was a fan of the fair tax, and in the discussion that he started (http://social.bureaucrash.com/forum/topics/please-leave-your-input-below) he kept answering questions with one-line answers such as this.

Reply by Leo_the_Magnificent
“Well, what do you normally categorize yourself as, id est, libertarian, objectivist, classical liberal, et cetera?”
Reply by Lee Doren
“I’m perceived differently to different people depending who I am with.”
Reply by Leo_the_Magnificent
“XD I think most libertarians are, but I believe you are at least a minarchist of some form or another. Though mere perceptions are not necessarily the truth; for instance, I could categorize you as a Marxist based on my perception, but that doesn’t say anything about the truth of the matter of what you are.”
Reply by Lee Doren
“Well, I’ll let you watch my videos and decide for yourself.”

While some of us went into the Bureaucrash Social chatroom to watch the ongoing discussion, we were posting replies to the topic.

“Reply by Neal ‘Jiutai’ Conner
Sounds like an answer a politician would give, Lee.
Reply by Lee Doren 19 hours ago
Lol.”

I posted a link to Lee’s introduction on my Facebook profile with a comment “Wtf, a terrible choice on several levels if you ask me.” and soon after three people “liked” it including my disapproval, including Jason Talley. Ryan Maddox and Neal Conner commented on my link expressing their outright disapproval of the CEI’s decision also while we were all talking on Skype, and some of us joined the Xaq Fixx supporters group on BCS. I also got a tweet from an agorist friend saying that he deleted his Bureaucrash account, and at that point some of us were also considering doing so.

Then we spent a while on Skype discussing, commenting on, and planning posts with commentary and questions for Doren on the input thread, and analyzing his responses to us. When Aaron Kinney and I posted similar questions to him asking him whether he thought anarchy, which was the ultimate goal of a lot of crashers, was viable, he responded to both of us with the same line “I’m for a Constitutional Republic. Utopia doesn’t exist.”

Most of us were fairly sure we would move over to anarch.me and other similar sites, if Bureaucrash was not going to change, especially after Doren posted this – “Well, I’m not going to be promoting Anarchy, if that is what you’re hoping for. I will be promoting limited government, however.”

All this time we had been debating him in the Bureaucrash chatroom as well, and here is a short list of quotes from him over the 2-3 hours of “debating.”

“The fact that the government violates its own laws doesn’t change the fact that it is my government”

“The world that we live in is ruled by force
I just happen to want the force to be in the hands of the best of the worst people”

“The ONLY reason why certain civilizations have stayed in existense was because of might”

“You should accept that might makes right…and that is why we have a government”

“Since America has the most powerful military we are in control”

“I’m willing to have America as the most powerful Nation”

“The government is there to protect life liberty and property”

“What happens next after freedom?”

“Of course I state it over and over…because I have followed history and limited government is necessary”

“The fact that limited govenrment expanded ignored what life was life before govenrment, if you didn’t have a strong government….that is how you became a REAL slave”

“Did I like McCain….no. Did I vote for him over Obama yes.”

“Terrible…McCain’s explaination for the financial collapse was greed”

“Look, you cannot support the Free Market and ignore the concept of trade-offs”

“Look, you’re welcome to dream about a fantasy world that doesn’t exist and base your life on a fantasy, but the world exists as such that the strong win, and it might as well be us”

Most of the above was compiled by Ryan Maddox. We tried to get the whole chatlog, but it wasn’t possible to copypaste everything in the Ning chatroom due to its structure. Several anarchists were arguing against him, while he insisted that we all “really need to read Bastiat”, was arguing for a “government exists, accept it” kind of perspective.

I saw Jason Talley’s Facebook/Twitter link to the Input thread on BCS, and commented for anyone interested that there was a discussion going on in the BCS chat. On Skype some of us were half-jokingly talking about taking over and planning a coup d’etat on Bureaucrash, but we realized it was up to the CEI, and that if it was not going to change, we would be gone. We also asked some of the anarchists arguing Lee in the BCS chatroom to join us on Skype, so over the course of the night new people were being constantly added in the room.

After a while, Lee Doren disappeared from the BCS chat, so it devolved into a discussion of random topics, but some crashers were responding to the Input thread expressing their disagreement with the decision.

Aaron Kinney asked us for links to libertarian/anarchist/agorist blogs, and posted a list of them (along with North Korea’s twitter, as a joke) to Doren’s request for blogs for the new Bureaucrash blogroll, which was infiltrated with Malkin and other heavily right-wing and Republican resources.

In a while of Skype as a break, some of us were talking about Bob Barr’s moustache, and we ended up creating groups on Facebook and BCS with the title ” I like Bob Barr’s ‘stache more than his political views.” for the lulz.

We then talked about creating a group or Facebook cause against Lee Doren, posting the list of quotes from him and everything else that supported our beliefs that this was not the proper person to be running a libertarian/anarchist organization, but we decided to wait a few days before doing so, so we could wait and see what he had planned for BCS.

Mike Gogulski then told Leo and I that he had apparently been banned or deleted from BCS over Twitter, and that it could possibly be for spamming around with links to his NLM audio recording, but many of us suspected that was not so. Regardless, after discussing a little with him I created a topic asking about this, and demanding an explanation (http://social.bureaucrash.com/forum/topics/mike-gogulski-banneddeleted). Ryan Maddox also created a topic (http://social.bureaucrash.com/forum/topics/is-bureaucrash-social-going), which got responses expressing dissatisfaction.

After I added Mike into the Skype chatroom, it evolved into them discussing it again for the next several hours. After a failed attempt at going to sleep a couple hours ago, I was suddenly overwhelmed with sleepiness at 8:30 am, and I crashed (excuse the pun) until 4 pm, and I woke up with 38 new emailed notifications, hundreds of new Skype messages, messages, and new posts all over, not one of them supporting the change.

The Skype discussion was still going on with many instrumental people being recently added, and the primary topic was again to somehow take action against this, and in about an hour there was a BCS group “Countering the Crasher-in-Chief” (http://social.bureaucrash.com/group/counteringthecrasherinchief), with a long message from the founder, Daniel Patrick, reinstating what so many of us had been talking about all night and day.

Many users have suggested checking out the site anarch.me

In a while, the “Please leave your input” thread by Lee Doren where almost all the posts expressed disapproval and questioning, had been deleted. Some of the members started uploading agorist and radical videos, and Daniel Patrick got us a screenshot of the chatroom where Lee Doren admitted that he “removed 9/11 truth stuff.” In a few minutes, Lee Doren’s intro blog post on the main BC site had also been removed.
