A Culture Of Fear And Intimidation...

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,

Last week when I arrived to Bangladesh, the immigration officials there were positively ecstatic to see a foreign tourist entering the country.

I’ve also been to places in Africa and the South Pacific where you’re greeted upon arrival by dancing tribespeople singing songs of welcome.

It’s not quite the same in the Land of the Free. In fact, before they even let people in the country, they program us to be afraid and intimidated.

For one thing, all the immigration officers are armed. There’s absolutely no reason for a government agent to carry a loaded pistol when all he does is stamp a passport. This is EXTREMELY uncommon in the rest of the world. Only in the Land of the Free.

Just like the airport security farce, which has millions of travelers assume the “I surrender” pose inside a radiation machine, US immigration checkpoints are there to train people to be afraid and submit to the state’s authority.

When you step back and look at the whole government apparatus, it’s apparent that this culture of fear and intimidation applies across the entire spectrum.

We’re programmed, for example, to be terrified of the IRS. It’s to the point that getting audited consistently ranks among people’s top fears in the Land of the Free, right up there with snakes and unexpected death. It’s quite sad, actually.

And whether this Soviet-style idea to target opposition political groups came from the top or from the lower ranks, it smacks of an entire organizational culture gone awry… one that thinks it has unlimited power and authority to squash anyone it wants.

We’re also programmed to fear the police… who are more commonly donning combat boots, assault rifles, and these hideous Urban Assault Vehicles as a show of force, as if they’re on patrol in Kandahar.

And we’re programmed to subordinate ourselves to the interests of the state… whether it’s “shared sacrifice”, i.e. everyone must universally suffer because politicians are incompetent, or ratting out our neighbors to Homeland Security (if you see something, say something) or the IRS.

There’s so much more. We’re told that we can be attacked by drones, held in military detention, or have our children taken away by the government. These are powerful tools in stoking a culture of fear to keep an entire civilization under control.

Yet these constant abuses of power are diametrically opposed to how a free society is supposed to conduct itself.

You’re probably aware of a particularly fitting quote, most frequently credited to Thomas Jefferson– “Where the people fear the government, you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.” It’s absolutely true.

(There is no evidence that Jefferson ever said this, nor is the phrase contained in his works. It was first seen in print in John Basil Barnhill’s article, ‘Indictment of Socialism No. 3? in 1914.)

Jefferson did write in a 1789 letter to Welsh philosopher Richard Price that “wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.”

Unfortunately this isn’t happening; ‘the people’ aren’t rising up to set things right.

And this is an important reminder: we cannot rely on a government or society to provide us with freedom or the economic opportunity which stems from it. We can’t wait for tens of millions of people to ‘wake up’ and ‘vote the bums out’. Or take to the streets.

If history is any indicator, the fear and intimidation will likely get worse. This problem doesn’t just go away, and it doesn’t resolve itself.

The only viable strategy is to abandon the herd and focus on what we can all do as individuals to safeguard our wealth, preserve our liberties, and ensure the continued safety of our families.

Leaving religion and entering the age of self-aggrandizement and moral relativism is at the root of the problems of the modern age.

Thank goodness bluefin tuna don't have issues with the mass-slaughter of pilchards ... nor cattle station owners with making rational economic decisions to turn cattle into BBQs.

Ultimately the source of our 'special' humanist moral repugnance to mass-murders is due to our fear that we may one day be on the receiving end. And when religious morality fails (and who can possibly argue that it hasn't in EVERY major religion) then you get Govt 'Law' and the UN's confabulation.

And when that fails (as it now has), we're right back to square one, the general fear that it might happen to us. Hence people are now trying every which way to resurrect the sense of moral repugnance and provide it a sensible agreed basis (hard to do when some utter arsehole in the beige-house, who has a fucking nobel peace prize, but keeps arbitrarily killing people, as he sees fit, with his assassin drone fleet).

And acute fear is the organizing motivator of collective 'order'-making. It is always that way, just as it is for a pilchard 'schooling' in a tight bunch and moving in lock-step, as one drone-mind, in order to avoid the tuna's maw.

 

EDIT: They really should have some sort of verbal guidance for a nobel peace prize recipient, so they understand that they really must not become a willful mass-murdering cunt, as that sort of runs contrary to the whole spirit of awarding them a peace-prize thingy in the first place.

Humans have evolved to the exalted levels of...  rhesus macaque monkeys.

 

"Alpha males, who rule the 50 or so macaques in the troop, use threats and violence to hold on to the safest sleeping places, the best food, and access to the females in the group with whom they want to have sex. Like human dictators intent on holding power, dominant monkeys use frequent and unpredictable aggression as an effective form of intimidation. Less powerful members of the rhesus macaque group are marginalized and forced to live on the edges of the group’s area, where they are vulnerable to predator attacks. They must wait for the others to eat first and then have the leftovers; they have sex only when the dominant monkeys are not looking.

“In rhesus society, dominants always travel in business class and subordinates in economy, and if the flight is overbooked, it’s the subordinates who get bumped off the plane,” Maestripieri said. “Social status can make the difference between life and death in human societies too,” he pointed out. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, for instance, the poorer members of the community accounted for most of the hurricane’s death toll.

Male macaques form alliances with more powerful individuals, and take part in scapegoating on the lower end of the hierarchy, a Machiavellian strategy that a mid-ranking monkey can use when under attack from a higher-ranking one. Altruism is rare and, in most cases, only a form of nepotistic behavior. Mothers help their daughters achieve a status similar to their own and to maintain it throughout their lives. Females act in Machiavellian ways also when it comes to reproduction. They make sure they have lots of sex with the alpha male to increase the chances he will protect their newborn infant from other monkeys 6 months later.

“But while they have lots of sex with the alpha male and make him think he’s going to be the father of their baby, the females also have sex with all the other males in the group behind the alpha male’s back,” Maestripieri said. They do so just in case the alpha male is sterile or he dies or loses his power before the baby is born.

Struggles for power within a group sometimes culminate in a revolution, in which all members of the most dominant family are suddenly attacked by entire families of subordinates. These revolutions result in drastic changes in the structure of power within rhesus societies, not unlike those occurring following human revolutions. There is one situation, however, in which all of the well-established social structure evaporates: when a group of rhesus macaques confronts another one and monkey warfare begins. Rhesus macaques dislike strangers and will viciously attack their own image in a mirror, thinking it’s a stranger threatening them. When warfare begins, “Even a low-ranking rhesus loner becomes an instant patriot. Every drop of xenophobia in rhesus blood is transformed into fuel for battle,” Maestripieri wrote."

There are many levels of brainwashing. Not everyone gets caught by the obvious stuff, but these guys have something for everyone trust me.

In your case they probably have you at the next level already; You actually think you can fight their system from within.

Well guess what, you can't. They have half the Ph.D output of academia studying you at a distance. And half the computational throw of the world's data centers keeping track of what pleasure buttons you push every day.

Kill your TV. It's only a start (hint: kill your car next) but it happens to be the most important first step you can take.

Okay that was mean-spirited I admit, to make up for that I have some fiction for you. All about the monkey mind:

I don't think taking the individual route will work.  There are just too many of them.

This period reminds me of 1774-5.  During that time there was a world wide arms race.  The colonists were going everywhere to procure arms and munitions while the crown was trying to prevent just that.  There was a great amount of militancy in the colonies with companies being formed and drilled.  Committees of Correspondence being set up.  Basically, they were preparing for war.

Fast forward to today.  Patriots are buying millions upon millions of firearms and billions of rounds of ammo.  The Feds are trying to interdict this but fairly unsuccessfully.  Patriot groups have sprung up all across the country and there are some national organizations.  Living within earshot of a gun range for many years informs me that firearm practice is at it's highest level since moving here.

The only viable strategy is to prepare and make sure your side is the winning team.  The most immoral thing about war is losing.  Often times, just showing that you are very prepared and highly committed is enough to prevent war.

You are bashing America and that's unpatriotic. Anyone that bashes the freest nation in the world is obviously an ingrate and should have their rights revoked.*

 

Gawd Bless Mur'ca.

 

*This is perfectly logical to the average maleducated American. The thought process goes like this:

America is, and has been the bestest, goddamn perfect freest nation to have ever existed and you should thank your goddamn lucky stars to be here. But noooo.... Instead you piss on this great, free nation with your criticisms so therefore you deserve all the harrassment that the government gives you. Furthermore, as the twisted logic goes, your stupid arguments against militarism and torture are further evidence of your ingratitude of living in a free country. We can't give them due process because they are terrorists! What??? You "question their guilt, whether they are terrorists", is that what you said? Jesus Christ, if they're not terrorists then why were they picked up in the first place, huh? Huh dummy? Jesus. Since they were picked up they obviously MUST be terrorists, and because they are terrorists they have no right to due process. Why can't you understand this simple logic***

 

**At this point, me,  Frankie, having listened to this twisted argument reaches for a pistol and puts it into his mouth.

Such is the tortured logic of your average iPhone-junkie, reality teevee watching American Idiot.

The most direct attack on America is the expansion of legal immigration to this country. Almost half the people currently living in the US are here as a result of the Immigration Reform Act of 1965. The work and student visa program, green cards and refugee programs make illegal immigration look puny. Contrary to the current meme, our country was not founded by immigrants - it was founded by colonists that forged a new country out of the wilderness for themselves and their posterity. It is our inheritance and it is being sacrificed at the table of political correctness, just as surely as Esau gave up his inheritance for a pot of stew, Americans are giving up their inheritance for the porridge of a false self-righteousness of "multiculturalism" that is nothing but the death of the American way of life and freedom.

These brainwashed Eurotrash socialists and third world bottom-feeders have no history or tradition of natural rights, and in fact have never heard of the concept, or understand that the Constitution was an attempt to codify those natural God-given rights. They do not understand what our Founders understood - that men who are drawn to centers of power are by nature the worst among us, and that laws are needed to keep them in check. They do not understand or respect that the Constitution was written as a witness against the fallen nature of man, and that it is as timeless man's nature, which has not changed, and will not be out-dated until that nature has become angelic.

The descendants of America's founders are being replaced with a foreign people, and this was by design. The American gun-owning, freedom-loving middle-class was the biggest obstacle to One-World-Government-equally-distributed-misery plans of the international bankster cartel. It was no accident that American wages started stagnating in 1970 and have decreased ever since. Simple supply and demand. Since that wasn't enough, more jobs were moved overseas and more foreigners were moved in to take the jobs still here.

Ben Johnson said this about the The 1965 Immigration Act in an article for FrontPageMagazine in 2002:

The 1965 Immigration Act: Anatomy of a Disaster By: Ben Johnson | Tuesday, December 10, 2002

"Despite the overwhelming assurances of the bill's supporters, the 1965 Immigration Reform Act has remade society into the image its critics most feared. Immigration levels topping a million a year will increase U.S. population to 400 million within 50 years. Meanwhile, exponents of multiculturalism insist new arrivals make no effort to assimilate; to do so would be "genocidal," a notion that makes a mockery of real genocides. Instead, long-forgotten grudges are nursed against the white populace. Native citizens take to flight as the neighborhoods around them, the norms in their hometowns, are debased for the convenience of low-paid immigrants and well-heeled businessmen. All the while, indigenous paychecks drop through lower wages and higher taxes collected to provide social services for immigrants. And this only takes into account legal immigration.

"Americans must realize demographic trends are not inevitable, the product of mysterious forces beyond their control. Today's population is the result of yesterday's immigration policy, and that policy is as clearly broken as its backers' assurances were facetious. A rational policy will only come about when native Americans place the national interest above liberal howls of 'prejudice' and 'tribalism.'"

Its only gotten worse since Ben penned this article.

At a time when unemployment is at an all time high, "Conservative" Senator Ted Cruz wants to expand legal immigration, most of who will vote Democrat or Big Government Republican once they get here and take your job.

This is a war against the American People and Culture, and the Americans are loosing badly and don't even understand why. Most Americans blame only illegal immigration which is a fraction of the problem, and miss the bigger picture of legal immigrants.

I often hear people ask the question of how America became such a divided Nation. Now you know. Americans have purchased so many firearms that many manufacturers of military pattern semi-automatic rifles are back ordered for a year or more, and ammunition has doubled in price, when you can find it, and there are now at least 100 million guns owners in the US. DHS has purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition and "assault rifles" for personal protection. America is preparing for a civil war, and to deny it is whistling past the graveyard of history.

The jew supremacists are absolutely setting up America for another "Red Terror" exactly as they did in Russia 100 years ago (and this was written before the jew Cheka starved to death 10 million Ukrainians in the 1930s):

"And these paradise-creators who created an official position for the body-counter in their torture and execution chambers — of course, the visiting delegates never see this! These lofty idealists have tortured and killed, in the name of Russia’s workers and peasants (and according to their very own statistics) the following numbers of victims in the first four years of the glorious Russian Revolution: 28 bishops of the Church, 1,215 priests and 6,000 monks. Why? Just because they were bishops, priests and monks, and because they believed in God — who is of course merely a disposable middle-class superstition.

But these statistics are actually rather tiny. Next come 8,800 [Christian] doctors and their aides. Why? Because they represented [non-Jewish] middle-class medicine, and since proletarian medicine has not yet been invented, seriously ill people in today’s Soviet Russia must go to the Beyond without hardly any medical care whatsoever.

But even this number is so small. Now come the officers: 54,650 army and naval officers, 10,500 police officers (lieutenant-rank and above) and 48,500 lower-ranking policemen. And for what reason? Because they were military and police officers, and we all know that "militarism" is no longer permissible for any nationalistic and Aryan-conscious white people. It is only allowed to Red bandits who call themselves proletarians in order to dig the real proletariat a mass grave. The military oath to the nation’s flag, and loyalty unto death to that sacred banner are just bourgeois preconceptions — unless the flag is that blood-colored rag under which the international condottieri [cut-throat medieval officers] want to force down into surrender the rest of decent mankind.

And then there are 260,000 flag-loyal soldiers, of the old army, all now executed. But even this statistic is trifling. Now come the intelligentsia: teachers; professors, engineers, building contractors, writers and judges — especially judges, because these were the most dangerous for a state ruled by convicted felons who categorically reject the concept of right-versus-wrong as a bourgeois concept. To them let us add lawyers, district attorneys and all the college-educated occupations together to reach the number of 361,825 murdered members of our most mentally demanding professions. (I will not even tarry over our annihilated large-landholding class, consisting of 12,950 persons.)

And when someone asks me how the Russian intelligentsia can bear the Bolshevik yoke, I always answer that the Russian intelligentsia is either literally six feet under or in exile, and that the tiny remainder left over has suffered such a blood-letting and deliberate and systematic humiliation through the communist steamroller that they have forfeited every last bit of self-esteem and personal honor.

And finally, we come to the modest numbers of workers and peasants executed by the worker-and-peasant state. They amount to only 192,350 workers and 815,000 peasants. All these figures are official statistics published by the Cheka [forerunner of the KGB] and printed in easily obtainable Bolshevik newspapers during the period of what was then called "war communism" [when the anti-communist "White" forces were fighting Trotsky and the Red Army, 1917-1921]. All of these facts can be verified in the complete volumes of information or excerpts published in 1922 by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kingdom of Serbia, the only country in Europe which is fighting mercilessly against the disease of communism.

Since then, of course, these figures have risen, because the murders continue, the blood flows on — albeit only Christian and Aryan blood. But the reduction of the population is but a source of laughter and joy to the high lords of the new Moscow. When during the Famine of’1922, 30,000 human beings were dying everyday, Comrade Trotsky made the sarcastic remark: "All the better — look at the paperwork that will save us now." The total number of starvation-killed Russians (see the book by the German-Russian, Georg Popov — I have documentation for everything) is now up to two million!

But even this enormous number is small compared to the literally mentally ill persons now running around free in Soviet Russia — four million eight hundred thousand of them! But this is no surprise. Even the old Russia did not have enough sanatoria and hospitals for them. Now, however, the whole country has become a madhouse, and so these certifiably crazy persons don’t stand out — yet another blessing of the worker-and-peasant paradise. Remember now: the erectors of this crimson paradise are benefactors of mankind, but a tsar who hanged five rebels is a hangman forever.

It's not enough for them to win their little game, they have to keep it won. It's difficult for a future people to justify rebelling against them if any history that can be uncovered appears to support the official version of events.

It wasn't 'stew' though within the King James translation, where it's translated as "red pottage", which is basically lentil soup. You do not want to eat this, ever! Take it from me, I have. I had this cute Jewish girlfriend who made it for me from her Sephardi grandmother's traditional recipe. And I made the mistake of eating it, and I've never encountered any meal before, or since, that made me fart like that! (... I have my own theory about those alleged "gas chambers" ...)

True story, you've been warned.

Eurotrash?  Most of the people in Europe did not want the shit they are getting and at least they did not elect a Muslim leader.  Just a leaders who fawn over muslims.   Most Americans still watch TV and Hollywood's crap like idiots.   If you have not pulled the plug on both then don't complain because they are the people doing this.

Does not matter.  If you pay for cable or sat Tv - they divide your money up and every channel gets a piece of it.  MSNBC probably gets just under a dollar from you.  Ditto CNN and the others.  The elites control the thoughts or attitudes of the public with TV and Hollywood's shit.  F them.

Come on, Freddie, read the context.  The term only applies to "brain washed socialists" from Europe who come to the US with their self-righteous political correctness, i.e. Piers Morgan.  Someone like Nigel Farage would not be included.  As for TV and American movies, the biggest markets for these are outside the US.  I think you are projecting.

Good comment and I gave you thumbs up.  But let's be a little more precise, if you please.  Let's start with this statement.

Contrary to the current meme, our country was not founded by immigrants - it was founded by colonists that forged a new country out of the wilderness for themselves and their posterity.

The vast, vast, vast majority of people who came to the americas did not come here and "forge a new country out of wilderness for themselves and posterity".  They came to north america to forge a new life for themselves and their families, as individuals.

What happened, and what always happens, is some infintesimal percentage of a population are statists and decide they're going to "forge a colony" or "forge a nation".  And that is what happened in north america too.  As it turned out, these people were the least authoritarian statists the world has ever seen, but they were statists nonetheless.  How do we know?  Because they did not look at the history of the world, identify "states" and "authority" as the most destructive fictions created by humanity, and formally reject and ban them.  No, they established yet another fictional "state" and they established yet another fictional "authority".  Now, I'm perfectly happy to give some of those dudes (especially Jefferson) kudos for being more individualist than previous statists, but they were statists --- they established "colony" states, then they established the "nation" state.

So look at what actually happened.  To begin with, the americas were populated by a large number of tiny groups (now collectively called "Indians" or "Native Americans").  These groups were often structured like large families, and certainly not like modern nations.  The point being, you could move yourself and family away from the group and be completely independent, free, and not subject to the rules of any collective.

The original american statists (which were always a tiny, tiny, tiny percentage of the population) created and "formalized" fictitious "colonies", and then a fictitious "nation".  The fundamental problem with this approach should be obvious, but I'll say it because almost nobody today can see the obvious.  The fundamental problem is, the vast, vast, vast majority of individuals in the americas did not help draft, and did not sign the so-called "originating documents".

The presumption that a few dozen people can sit at a table, write a document that creates utterly fictional entities (colonies, states, nations) and authorities (president, congress, courts) that apply to the 99.9999% who had nothing to do with drafting or signing the document IS UTTERLY INSANE, AND UTTERLY CORRUPT.

The only ethical, legitimate and actual collaborations are voluntary.  To impose anything on anyone who did not voluntarily agree is inherently evil, corrupt, arbitrary, diabolical, uncivilized... and is pure, naked predatory aggression.

Which means, every single city, county, state, nation is absolute, completely pure fiction, utterly arbitrary, utterly corrupt, and is nothing more than a sith mind trick employed by human predators to control and consume their favorite prey.  Period.

It is easy to understand why people who grow up a few blocks from shopping malls do not have the same attitudes or understanding as people who moved into a wilderness, with only their own wits, actions, creativity and knowledge to keep them alive.  To expect modern man to have the same attitudes today is folly.  What is necessary is to identify and convey the fundamental facts that I outline above: that "organizations" literally do not exist (which is why they are called "fictitious entities" in fundamental law); that so-called "authority" and "titles" are pure fiction; and that involuntary human interactions are fundamentally unacceptable.

The problem is not "foreign people".  The problem is the failure to recognize fundamental facts of reality, including those itemized above, then identify all fictions created and force-fed by human predators, and exclude those fictions from application to human behavior.

So lemme see here.
If the first folks off the boats from Europe weren't immigrants then they were conquers?  Or imperial forces?  Or, "settlers" meaning they were fascists taking the lands belonging to the American Native Denzin away from them?  Or just a plain invading army?

Please learn to think in terms of individuals.  Please!

The truth is...

Some of the first individuals off boats from elsewhere were "government agents" sent to pillage and collect intelligence for some predators-DBA-government "back home".

Some of the first individuals off boats from elsewhere were "individuals looking for a better life" by carving a farm out of the wilderness.

Some of the first individuals off boats from elsewhere were "religion agents" sent to convert natives to Christianity or some other insane authoritarian system (and steal their gold for the vatican).

Some of the first individuals...

Get the point?  You can't make a blanket statement and stay honest.  Individuals of many kinds came on the boat, and each had their own agendas.

Just today I watched yet another smart-arse conceited immigrant to Australia claiming multiculturalism was still, "only on paper", within Australia! This infuriating Indian moron then when on to say how there should be more (even more!) "ethnic" people on local TV, etc., but let's forget the salient fact that the vast majority of the population is European (mostly Anglo at that). She then basically said she'd like to make Australia into little-India. But let's also forget that India is such a fucked-up mess, and its culture such an abject failure that she and her family now live in Australia, and would not even consider abandoning Australia to go back to India, after living here.

And this is the problem with most of the loud-mouth idiot immigrants today. Most of them have not got either the guts, nor the baseline honesty to admit that the country, culture and society, which they came from, was and still is the very quintessence of crapulousness. If such immigrants had any brains, decency, sense of proportion and reality, they should shut-the-fuck-up and stop preaching their turgid tedious multicultural crap to us and quit demanding that we should all emulate the rancid filthy failure of a country-of-birth that they either outright-abandoned and then fucked-off away from, as fast as they could, or less crawled or slinked away from, in the dead of night, across a border, or on a boat.

Case in point: Malvika Mehta, Vice Chairman of the "Indian Executive Club", on ABC TV's "Business Today", broadcast this morning:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-24/australian-businesses-urged-to-emb...

Now I'm no fan of any culture, or any country, let alone my own. I think they're all way-short of what we all need, now and in the near future. All are failures, but some countries are just much more obvious failures than the others. And I can't blame anyone if they didn't watch much of her carping BS above within that video link. She should be deported back to her imaginary Indian cultural paradise, as she'd obviously be much happier there, and live a far better life in general.

And we would all in fact be much happier if she left, and if everyone like her was told formally, openly, officially, loudly and very often to, "shutthefup, or else piss-off back to where you came from, you miserable fucking parasitic ingrate!".

Though that may be interpreted by some as insensitive.

"This [multicultural] approach has failed, utterly failed,"

Without a doubt mankind as a whole is an abject failure, and radically revolting, disgusting and irresponsible.  You'll get no argument out of me about that.

I think I implied it, but I didn't say it explicitly, so let me say what I believe all those individuals who got off the boat in the americas from the late 1400s onward should have done.  They should have noticed that people already lived on these continents (north and south america).  They should have observed how these peoples already organized themselves --- into "tribes" that were not exactly multi-generation extended families, but were the next step larger.  They should have noted that these tribes mostly left other tribes alone, most of the time, and that huge, mostly empty areas between tribes were essentially no-mans-land.

In other words, they had an extremely viable, extremely functional human organization on these continents when the gringos arrived and set up camps.  Why do I say that?  Because, for practical purposes, the organization was already set up to support individualists.  I don't know how common it was, but at least a small minority of ancient native american individualists [and sometimes their extended family] had fundamental disagreements with the tribe ways of doing things, and moved into any of the no-mans-land areas [with or without family], and lived a free and independent life.

The "new folks in town" (on the continents) therefore had a perfectly viable way to settle without creating any new governments --- pick some chunk of no-mans-land, move there, and set up camp, farm, village... and carve out their own independent existence.

And I'm sure a great many did just that.

If that is all the new folks in town did, life on earth, and especially life in the new world, would be unimaginably better today.  We can't even imagine how wonderful these continents would be today if the new folks and native folks interacted in exclusively voluntary, peaceful ways.  Oh, sure, there are always jerks in every group who cause trouble and get themselves killed and/or ostracized (even within any one group).  I'm talking overall here.

I don't think humans today can even imagine how healthy such a human organization is.  Many tribes/groups exist, and each does things in slightly to significantly different ways.  Call each an "experiment", because that's what they are.  Anyone can be part of the tribe/group/experiment they were born into, or they can go join another tribe/group/experiment, or they can create a new tribe/group/experiment, or they can strike out on their own [with their family].

That is the most perfectly healthy human organization I can imagine.

Okay, personally I'd prefer every tribe/group/experiment be a population of one individual, one family, or one extended family.  But hey, I'm a realist, and I understand that some humans are inherently too non-individualistic to become completely independent of a tribe.

My point was this.  The fundamental problem is this.  Some incredibly tiny group of 20 or 50 or 100 individuals set down at a table, drafted some document they all decided to sign and agree upon, but then made the same inherently corrupt, statist decision that all statists do --- decreed that everyone within some large geographical area were part of their agreement.

That is statism, that is slavery, and that is utter, large-scale corruption.  No matter how brilliant, and how well-meaning Thomas Jefferson and his gang of statists were, they made the same fundamental error that always thwarts the healthy development of mankind --- they created an inherently dishonest, inherently predatory fictional organization.  And they imposed it upon everyone within their arbitrary geographic area, as if they owned the entire freaking continents.  If that isn't delusion of grandeur, nothing is.  Furthermore, they knew perfectly well that human beings already existed, and already had their own form of organization, so they were establishing completely self-conscious assault and enslavement upon already existing individuals and their existing framework (which for all its problems and weaknesses was voluntary, because any individual could leave their tribe).

So honest individuals today have a serious intellectual problem.  They can talk all they want about how the "founders" of this predatory-authoritarian slave farm were "enlightened", but they still have to accept that they were statists, they were authoritarian, and they were [at least a mild form of] predators, and most importantly, they established the vehicle for the worst kind of predators to take control of in the future, which they have.

I'm sure much worse individuals than the founding fathers existed at that time, and certainly do today.  Nonetheless, those very few individuals are the original cause of the world-wide disaster of world-wide predatory authoritarianism we have today, which is quickly becoming a very sick, very nasty form of global predatory authoritarianism.

So let's be clear.  Most humans are jerks.  I think that's your point, and I agree completely.  I'm sure there were plenty of native american jerks too, but they didn't create the world-wide disaster we have today.  They were content with hundreds of tiny-scale tribes wandering the wilderness, which was an extremely viable if not optimal state of existence for human beings.  Not that they didn't have flaws on the individual and tribe level, but the point is, nothing that would take down mankind as a whole.  And my other point is, 99.9999% of the gringos who moved onto the continents (except employees of the british government) also did not attempt to create and impose any huge, statist, authoritarian disaster on the individuals of whole continents.

Only a few individuals did that, and the blame falls squarely on them, especially since they seemed to recognize the fact that only individuals can have authority over themselves, and that all non-voluntary human interactions are unjust, unethical are unsupportable.  And yet they created a system that was just the opposite.  Yes, I know they uttered phrases like "consent to be governed" and other great soundbites, but they did what they did, and they were extremely aware of world history.  And they were quite aware they were making new world history.

They knew they could organize to "kick out the statists" (the employees and agents of the crown) and declare that "we intend to fight against any and every attempt to create any new or large-scale statist fictions".  Instead, they kicked out the old statists, and created a new statism with the exact same fundamental flaws, namely the presumption that they could legitimately impose this organization on the vast majority of individuals who had absolutely nothing to do with their plans.  The vast majority of individuals were busy growing crops to stay alive, and performing other productive work.

That's how I see it.  As always, I'm ignoring all sorts of things in an attempt to zero in on the fundamental issue that "fundamentally changed everything", and led to the complete enslavement of mankind by the predators-that-be (predators-DBA-government, predators-DBA-huge-corporations, predators-DBA-central-banks).

I don't think every native american was or is perfect.  I don't think every gringo was or is perfect (almost just the opposite).  What I do think is that certain individuals, probably all of whom were gringos, arrived at an already populated continent and simply asserted that "all natives, all gringos, all humans are subject to a document a few of us wrote, and now intend to impose".

These jerks create endless utterly fictional boundaries (towns, counties, states, nations), create endless utterly fictional entities (governments, corporations), create endless utterly fictional authorities (president, congressjerk, judge, regulator, ad-infinitum)... and declare that every real, living, physical individual within their utterly fictional boundaries must obey whatever dictates their fictional authorities emit.

That is pure evil, and inherently and obviously so to any honest, thoughtful individual who takes the time to consider the events that actually happen on this planet.

There's no point in blaming whole population-segments for what a few dozen or a few hundred individuals did to create the current mess.  Those responsible in the 1700s and 1800s are well known.  Those responsible today are more numerous, but still well known or easy to identify.  And that's the point I keep trying to make.  There's no point to blaming "all gringos" or "all natives" or "all individuals who moved from one location on planet earth to another".

The only solution is to identify predators, and deal with them as predators of all species should properly be dealt with... with bullets and/or cages.

You are 100% correct to say that "what matters is what they did after they arrived".  But you are misguided to say "they" is "every gringo".  Who is responsible then, and who is responsible today is well known.  And the fundamentally egregious, diabolical, predatory actions they took are described in essence in this message.

"These brainwashed Eurotrash socialists and third world bottom-feeders have no history or tradition of natural rights, and in fact have never heard of the concept, or understand that the Constitution was an attempt to codify those natural God-given rights. They do not understand what our Founders understood..."

............................................................

As a Brit, I second that. It causes me eternal frustration that Europeans have no concept nor understanding of genuine freedom, of government being a servant of the people, of there being a proper written constitution that articulates and limits the power of government, nor of a Bill of Rights acquired at birth. Europe has almost always been governed by corrupt wannabe despots who "grant" rights and privileges to their minions and cronies when necessary.
