Liberty and the rise of Free Humans

Every politician promises change, and it is always change for “the better.” If every politician is promising change that means for generations, across civilizations politicians have been promising the same thing, change for the better. It is time humans realized that change comes from the people deciding the way, and that comes and can only come from liberty.

The only idea that does not come with some establishment controlling the way is liberty, and that is the promise of liberty, that change will be determined by the people as liberty’s core promise is that all citizens are equal before the law, they are each valued equally by a political system.

Liberty/ freedom, means there is no establishment, there is no click controlling the political and therefore the economic system of the society, this is because the state is for everybody.

Volumes of words can be written about how it is not liberty to have a click controlling the state, a click getting bailouts and subsidies, a click controlling the purse of the state, all these arguments are a valid reason for demanding more liberty and freedom, however the most important argument for liberty is that liberty looks forward, it looks into the future.

Liberty and therefore freedoms hidden power is that it is forward looking, it does not call on the past, it does not call on dead civilizations or empires, princess, princesses, gods, or demigods, liberty already acknowledges the past, the past is settled and cannot be undone, liberty deals with the present moment, it is the entire society dealing with the present moment, not calling on some elite to solve a problem thus sustaining the past of that elite but dealing with the present moment. Liberty merely says we are all human and must contribute to the society as such with our own efforts, not giving our efforts to an elite.

Bailouts are simply giving societies efforts to an elite and sustaining the past and keeping that elite going for another generation, bailouts are simply to sustain an elite, never to sustain a society no matter what lies leaders of that society say, bailouts look to the past, to sustain those of the past even if they are corrupted.

Liberty and freedom warn us of the past, it warns us of history repeating itself when liberty and freedom are not present. Liberty recognizes that when people are not free those claiming to be brave as they uphold a system when met with equally armed people they are oppressing are suddenly not so brave, that is why they always demand to be armed better, everyone is brave when they are in an armored vehicle and stones are being thrown at them. Everyone is brave when they are in a fighter jet and are fighting an AK – 47, liberty understands the falsehoods of this bravado, and says it is better people are free to use their efforts to improve society rather than wasting efforts looking for ways to fight oppression.

Oppression always begins with a government protecting an elite and the lies that follow from there, be they cultural lies like need to bailout elite to protect everybody else, this is merely looking at the past, or scientific falsehoods that some are genetically superior than others.

Liberty understands that an oppressed people must eventually fight and kill off their oppressors, that is the way of the human, the opponent must be killed, as the oppressor has willingly been killing the people physically and spiritually robbing them of being human, turning them into lessor humans. Liberty wants to avoid this past. In a proper uprising not only are humans to be killed but the economic infrastructure of the oppressor must be destroyed, as the oppressor is fighting to keep others poor, what is built by man can be rebuilt by man.

Liberty alone recognizes common people, that we are all just common people, conservatives believe some elite is above the common people, at it’s most raw it just says the basis of elitism one must belong to a certain race, ethnicity, religion. Socialists believe in the elite of committees, the elite of the politburo, and the committees that are there to direct the people, at their most raw they believe these committees must be filled with people who come from a certain race, ethnicity, religion, or background. Liberty does away with all this nonsense, it says we must all be or the past must repeat itself at some point, death must come to purify the evil.

Liberty is like the meditation master that recognizes we must accept the present, the past is the past.

Break up the Banks: The Fascist Con

America is the heart of the global fascist movement, of big business in cohorts with the government. It is the heart of the fascist movement not only in terms of practicality but ideologically, and big business through giant media has willingly approved and called the fascism free markets. In reality the US government is run to protect the interest of the elite and the wealthiest of wealthy families, the top 0.1%.

The Republican party spent generations fighting against Roosevelt’s initiative the Glass Steagall act in the name that it was against the free market, not forgetting when the act was initiated it was for the protection received from Roosevelt's government at the time, he basically printed money for the big banks so that they could survive, same thing as Bush jnr. and Obama. In time the depression was forgotten and calls where heard that more money could be made by the elite if Glass Steagall was out of the way, and the Rhodes scholar, Harvard and Oxford educated Clinton complied, then within a decade troubles had become unsurmountable and soon things broke down again and there was Yale educated Bush in the name of saving freedom gave the elite trillions, as well as Harvard educated Obama. These are crooks, nothing but crooks.

Let us look at recent memory, the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the economic chaos that followed. Again the market had decided the banking sector needed change, and it signaled this by the impeding collapse that was due when Lehman announced bankruptcy. The market had decided a corrupt sector was no longer viable and it would have to collapse and something new would come and replace it decided by the people, not by a government, not by an elite sector, decided by the market, and the market is be definition the people. As in all systems run by an elite for an elite in America, in Europe, the elite stood up ignored the will of the people and decided they must save themselves and their fortunes, and who was there, the governments they controlled.

The market would have had the banks bankrupt and broken up and that elite that had concentrated wealth in its hands would have seen those ill gotten gains lost in the form of shares they owned in these corrupt and corrupted institutions. But they where saved by printing money, and this has resulted in worst inequality of wealth in generations, well what do people expect when they say they are smarter than the market, instead of being punished for corruption they where rewarded with the greatest printing of money in history such that now, there is no billionaire one can admire as it mostly can be traced to printed money, government assistance and culture of the insider.

Now the same elite is talking of breaking up the banks, they want to break up the banks in a manner that benefits them, they want to control the process so that they keep their ill gotten gains, gains legally from Bush jnr. Obama, Europe and Chinese governments all of course copying the lead of the Milton Friedman inspired theft of print money for the banks. Everything about the elite, every policy is meant to benefit them only, and they call it all free market, they call bailing out banks free market, they call corporate trade deals free market, they truly think they are fooling people, indeed they are, blacks still love Obama even though statistics have shown that under Obama they have fallen further and further behind, they use tricks of lies and the media.

Today there is talk of breaking up the banks from both Democratic and Republican party nominees from the presidency of the USA. Hypocrisy of the worst kind, the market had already done that and both parties refused because it would have meant new players in the banking sector as top insiders would have had to exit for their absolute corruption and incompetence

The system is completely rigged, that one needs a will of iron to continue, the corruption starts at the top and infests the entire society, it becomes a culture as everybody sees those supposedly representing the people dishing out goodies and contracts to a wealthy elite. The system is corrupted from the government giving favors to the elite to a union foreman giving a job, to those sweeping the streets, it becomes culture. A free society has no bailouts, government is kept small such that we do not hear hypocrisy of banks needing to be broken down when the market had already done that but it would have done it in a manner not favorable to the elite who desire inter-generational theft, in order to finance their fraternities start ups and call them geniuses.

Trump, Plagiarism, Liberty and the Free Market

Investigative journalist Jarrett Hill noticed similarities between Melania Trump’s speech at the recent GOP convention and that given by Michelle Obama in 2008, and the Trump campaign was embroiled in scandal with charges of plagiarism. Mind you it was only a small sample in the total speech. Jarrett Hill’s tweet “CORRECTION: Melania stole a whole graph from Michelle’s speech. #GOPConvention…” was re-tweeted over 25 000 times.

Though plain to see the mobs entered into the debate. Those on Trumps side trashed the very idea that Mrs. Trump would even be influenced by somebody like Mrs. Obama, and the Trump team talked merely of coincidence. These of course had been the initial reactions, even though it was plain for the whole world to see.

Plagiarism is basically taking somebody else’s thought and passing it off as ones own. The moral crime of plagiarism is that a human being can be so lacking in standards and morals that they cannot acknowledge the source of their idea even though there is no monetary cost for that acknowledgement.

Those who take the concept of liberty and freedom seriously, not as a cover for some other type of debased ideology, understand the moral requirements required for liberty to be a success. Liberty can be used for many lesser ideals, racists use it as their right to hate, their right to be racist, thus undermining the very concept that they use to defend their racism, liberty.

The idea of liberty is that all can participate in the system in the manner that they feel comfortable with, and that their contributions are acknowledged if used, this acknowledgement encouraging further participation. That is liberty and why it is accepted as most just system. Plagiarism is lack of acknowledgement, an idea against any sense of justice.

There are three reasons for plagiarism. The first reason is to look good thinking it’s harmless but one is still taking somebody else’s essence and passing it off as their own for their own benefit. Usually it is to get a pass mark on an assignment in college. It still shows a great moral flaw.

The second reason for plagiarism is professional envy and jealousy, one is so desperate to be seen to be better than they are, and require to be seen at all costs, they know how to use a knife and fork, dress the part but lack the intellectual capability to go with the image they have created, so they plagiarize. They gain fame and fortune at the expense of others, when there would be no harm with a simple acknowledgement and all would be satisfied.

The third reason for plagiarism is probably the most immoral as it has political and ideological undertones. This kind of plagiarism has at its roots hatred and fear. Take the concept of evolution usually credited to Darwin. It comes as shock to learn that the only reason why it is credited to Darwin is because he was of the so called upper-class of the United Kingdom. We learn from biologists such as Bruce Lipton that Alfred Russel Wallace was the person who actually wrote the paper that Charles Darwin presented but he was of a lower class, and society could not have such a person having such intellectual prowess, it just did not fit with those who sponsored science, they would have no justification for the cultural upper class privileges they had bestowed upon themselves.

One can get the jest of this kind of refusal to acknowledge, it is because a certain group of people only wish liberty and freedom for themselves and try to justify by any lie or con that they can think of.

Rep. Steve King of Iowa recently caused a stir by asking on MSNBC “I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you're talking about…” Before asking King what he and his relatives contributed to the great white race one needs to point out that as knowledge moved West from the East, firstly during the crusades, we get incidences whereby the original discoverer of important concepts where not recognized for national and cultural reasons. Take calculus, this modern world would be impossible without calculus that originated in India but falsely attributed to Newton, who himself was way behind Leibniz.

Modern scientific methodology in the West has its roots from the interactions that Frederick Hohenstaufen had with the Arabs during the crusades, where would the world be without scientific methodology, it is not a western invention.

What the west has contributed is the whole-scale principle of liberty, if India had liberty at the time of Bhaskara, they would have been far ahead, China refused liberty 4 000 years ago and chose Confucius. Lao Tsu long understood 4 000 years ago that with liberty there will be lots of trinkets, what is a television but a trinket. People where not acknowledged due to the hatred of people like King towards others throughout history, after appropriating somebody’s mind they go and boast about it, after boasting about it create policies to undermine the minds of others.

Whilst Newt Gingrich said who cares if plagiarism took place, Trump knowing that he could never be seen as anything resembling freedom and liberty decided to have the speech writer apologize and he himself said about the speech writer Meredith McIver on ABC “she made a mistake, people make mistakes… I thought it was terrific the way she came forward and said look it was a mistake I made.”  President Obama did not feel the same need, who knows who believes in liberty anymore besides lip service.
