If you're only decent when threatened...

Then you aren't really decent at all!

I can get along with others without going to war. Even when I don't agree with them. In the absence of government, I'll not change into a monster. And I believe I have a good chance of fending off those rare pathetic losers who do.

I'm not that different from others, am I?

So why does everyone seem to always assume war, murder, and aggression are the default if there's not someone acting as a Big Parent to make them behave?

I think it tells a lot about a person if they believe that without a big bully making them behave, they'll go all "Lord of the Flies" or Mad Max on everyone around them.

This blog is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.


  1. govt: obey or be fined, jailed,killed.

    church: obey or be ostracized, and then burn in eternal hell.

    threats to control behavior.
    conform to massah's wishes, or else there will be consequences.

    so, how good are the imprisoned cultures natively, if it takes overt threats to keep them under control?
    not inherently good.

    do the damaged people know that about themselves and their cultures? know that they need the whip looming over themselves, or they lose themselves and their own culture? is govt based upon individual self hatred of the governed, or is it a suicide impulse? or laziness; fear of responsibility for making their own decisions?

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    - Samuel Adams

  2. for 100 years, swedes needed few police. add some moslems, and it takes a military police state to restrain that culture even a little bit. children raised in one culture by loving free people, need few threats. the mad max culture of islam is not compatible with european western civ. one or the other will go away in a generation or two.

    lutheran/protestant farm culture in midwest usa needed few police. central american cultures need a police state to restrain some of the violence. central americans flee cantral america because of the out of control violence.

    people flee urban enclaves due to welfare black on black violence. no amount of policing seems to matter.

    it's not race. it's individuals educated into a culture. many cultures are "mad max" at their base.
    western civ had moderated after ww2, and interpersonal liberty was at an all time high (inter-gov violence continued). what we see now, is individuals worldwide seeing and yearning to appropriate the BENEFITS of western civ culture (electricity, medicine, etc) without adopting the culture itself. or even openly hating the culture of education philoksophy, and respect for individual liberty that produces those gifts.

    deregulation of industries gave entrepreneurs the opportunity to produce grest things. then govt facism jumped in to capture the wealth; thereby killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

    the facist culture (look it up), people like like Lincoln, FDR, LBJ, Bush, Clinton, Bush; and the communist culture, like Obamma- have subsumed the liberty of that "shining beacon on the hill", that last enclave of liberty is being eaten by leeches. and importing violent minority cultures is a means to create the 1984 police state they desire.

    just one individual's observations. your own mileage may vary.

    1. Some cultures are simply better than others. It's not polite to say, but it's true.

    2. ... cultures that acknowledge individuals Life, Liberty, and Property.

      Rarely in human history has there been such a place. From time to time, men take on the responsibility of Liberty. Western Civilization used to praise and seek Liberty. These are not those times.

      "Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago."
      - Warren Buffett

      I was born into the last bits of that shade, in a cultural with proud traditions of Liberty. The shade is now gone; and the culture obliterated by the indoctrination system.
