Corporate media is dying. Gallup found that 60% of Americans possess scant trust in the mainstream media to report news in 2012, and this trend has continued through 2015. Pew Research Center found last year that 65% of respondents viewed the news media negatively, and this was only superseded in terms of negativity vis-à-vis the federal government and Congress at 67% and 75%, respectively. Interestingly enough, this same Pew study also found that percentages of respondents who thought the national news media had a positive effect dropped from 31% to 25% from 2010 – 2015.

The Best of American Survivor

Tacticool” advertising would make Edward Bernays quite proud, for it has convinced many who have rejected the left-right paradigm to still be tricked into buying shit they don’t need in order to impress people they don’t like, because as any Madison Avenue social engineer knows, you don’t so much as sell a product to a customer as you sell that customer on the false imagery of a lifestyle that can be commodified and sold. A marketing niche has thus been created within the alternative media as a source of revenue generation, which largely capitalizes on the fear generated from obsessing about doom porn that is done in accordance with the Hegelian Dialectic. Truth be told, you can still prep for real disasters using improvised equipment that is more affordable and pragmatic than anything these “celebritarians” try to sell to you.

This anthology of articles originally published in American Survivor over the course of several years is quite possibly the very best survival book I have ever read, by far. Continue reading

A Primer on Ron Paul for Gary Johnson Supporters

Gary Johnson has inspired his supporters to do nothing at all. The recent faux “town hall” CNN broadcasts only confirmed this, as Johnson and his no-name running mate emphasized that they are the reasonable moderates who blend the best of the two hegemonic political parties. Although a minority of voters support Johnson, the itching question is, is he worth a damn at all?

 

“South Park Ron Paul” version 2 by AnonPaul

 

Ron Paul was a congressman over the course of thirty years, and had campaigned for the United States presidency three times; the first of which in 1988 under a Libertarian Party ticket, the second time in 2008 as a Republican Party candidate, and then again in 2012, in no small part due to the Draft Ron Paul movement. He has written at least three political books, the most significant of which I think are The Revolution: A Manifesto, End the Fed, and Liberty Defined. Paul is the founder and chairman of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity and remains a Distinguished Counselor to the Ludwig von Mises Institute. Continue reading

Life, Freedom, & Survival!

Believe it or not, survival and liberty go hand in hand. Each one reinforces the other – in order to secure your liberty, you must first be able to survive, and by the same token, increasing survivability necessitates a respect for liberty. Authoritarians would have you falsely perceive liberty and survival as opposing values within a zero-sum game, but that is a lie.

 

life, freedom, & survival cover

 

Survival psychology and philosophy are virtually untouched topics within “prepping” circles, much less the rest of the alternative media. Too much emphasis on been placed on stuff (“gear” and “tacticool” equipment) and not enough on skills, but almost a complete silence regarding the mental struggles and emotional challenges of survival itself. James Jones founded Live Free, USA during the 1960’s (chronologically paralleling Rayo’s vonu experiments) so as to develop and popularize a realistic understanding of survivalism. Continue reading

Camp Lone Star (No. 21 – 25)

The following is a partial mirroring of Gary Hunt’s series about political prisoner Kevin “K.C.” Massey. Currently, Massey is serving a three year and five month sentence because he was convicted of violating 18 USC § 922(g)(1) for the victimless crime of “felon in possession of firearm,” yet, his case is on appeal. Please read,“Camp Lone Star (No. 16 – 20),” before reading this selection.

 

 

XXI. Act III – A Kangaroo Court: Scene 3 – The Patriot Community [6/29/15]

I suppose that it would be best to start out with a confession. Back in 1966, I smoked my first marijuana. I was on R&R in Nha Trang, Vietnam and staying in a hotel on the American side of the city. As I understand it, part of the city was for R&R for us, and the other part (a no go zone) was used by the Vietcong for R&R. Continue reading

Controlled Schizophrenia: Why “Celebritarians” Are Glorifying Donald Trump

Betrayal is all too common within the activist milieu. This is primarily due to the scourge of not only fake grievances but also the very existence of disingenuous activists themselves. Opposing intellectual dishonesty by pointing out sophistry is not just limited to argumentation ethics, for those who publicly claim to value liberty and freedom deserve to be boycotted and ostracized should they ever compromise on their principles solely due to the winds of political expediency.

Controlled schizophrenia is the mental state of an opportunistic citizen-serf who practices doublethink, yet who still acts in his own best interest. Today, this can be observed in the political crusaders, especially those Donald Trump supporters who voted for Ron Paul back during the 2008 and 2012 election cycles. The question to be answered now is, why are any of the “celebritarians” glorifying Trump? Continue reading

Understanding Libertarian Morality

Today’s document is a 2012 PLoS ONE study that demonstrated the fact that self-identified libertarians (such as yours truly) are psychologically distinct from both the fascist conservatives and socialist progressives. If anything, I think this study, when combined with the results from the Testing Theories of American Politics one, really settles the consequentialist argument that opposes political crusading, especially under the guise of being a Donald Trump supporter. Below the humorous meme will be a summary of the results from the study as to what the scientists discovered about libertarian psychology.

Libertarian Really Means (Bastiat Institute)

 

Abstract

Libertarians are an increasingly prominent ideological group in U.S. politics, yet they have been largely unstudied. Across 16 measures in a large web-based sample that included 11,994 self-identified libertarians, we sought to understand the moral and psychological characteristics of self-described libertarians. Based on an intuitionist view of moral judgment, we focused on the underlying affective and cognitive dispositions that accompany this unique worldview. Compared to self-identified liberals and conservatives, libertarians showed 1) stronger endorsement of individual liberty as their foremost guiding principle, and weaker endorsement of all other moral principles; 2) a relatively cerebral as opposed to emotional cognitive style; and 3) lower interdependence and social relatedness. As predicted by intuitionist theories concerning the origins of moral reasoning, libertarian values showed convergent relationships with libertarian emotional dispositions and social preferences. Our findings add to a growing recognition of the role of personality differences in the organization of political attitudes. Continue reading

There were always bits and pieces that pointed toward a rather unpleasant picture; however, they amounted to nothing more than circumstantial evidence. Circumstantial evidence has always been an insufficient foundation for my articles. Continue reading

Principles of Economics

Economic illiteracy permeates not only the mainline American public, but also the activist milieu. All too common it is for those activists to proselytize without a comprehension of market phenomenon, and this is most pronounced amongst those who advocate for the restoration of a hypothetically limited government. Ignoring the reality of the free market’s modus operandi easily often leads individuals to erroneously conclude that constitutionally enumerated monopolies, such as those on adjudication and copyright, are inexplicably “necessary evils” in order to enjoy a civil society.

 

 

Although the rulers may imagine themselves to be immune from market forces, they are still humans, and as such, are considered to be what Carl Menger, the founder of the Austrian School of economics, described as economizing men. Continue reading
