I wrote a song.  I used samples from the show The Prisoner (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061287/?ref_=nv_sr_2) for the vocals.  My hubbykins whipped the vid together out of old public domain stuff.



----Rotten Cabbages---

"My Life is my own."   
"Such... business... IS ABOVE THE LAW!!"
"unlike me, many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment and will die here like rotten cabbages...  rotten cabbages...  rotten cabbages...  die here like rotten cabbages... rotten cabbages..."

"Those in favor!?  *CLAP CLAP*"
"Has it ever occurred to you that you're just as much a prisoner as I am?"
"Impossible, I don't believe it!!!"
"Every citizen has a choice."
"Everyone votes for a dictator."
"Sir, we crave your indulgence for a shot while, the uh, transfer of ultimate power requires some tedious ceremony."
"Elections?! in this place?"
"Of course, we make our choice ever 12 months, ever citizen has a choice, are you going to run?"
"Like blazes the first chance i get."
"You can do as you want..."
"... as long as it's what you want..."
"as long as it's what the majority wants, we're democratic!"
~~"you must resist"~~
"I am in command...  obey me and be free! you are free to go! obey me and be free! you are free to go! you are free to go! "
~~"The thing to do now is keep calm, bare in mind you ultimate objective..."~~
"all around you!"
"all around me."
"Hear, Hear."
"all around you!"
"all around me."
"Hear, Hear."
"all around you!"
"all around me."
"Hear, Hear."
"all around you!"
"all around me."
"all around you!"
"all around me."
"...And now if you be kind enough to explain what I'm supposed to do?"
"You still have an independent mind...."
"Impossible I don't believe it"
"...And now if you be kind enough to explain what I'm supposed to do?"

"In you head there still must be the remnants of a brain, in your hearts there must be the desire to be a human being again!"
"...And now if you be kind enough to explain what I'm supposed to do? explain what I'm supposed to do?""
"Be seeing you."

I never said we wouldn't have access to them.  I am saying almost no one would pay for them, to keep them operational.  It kind of does matter what the world thinks.  Not what the politicians think, but what the individuals think.  If you ever want the threat of the state to go away, you are not going to do it by scaring the world into embracing government nukes to shoot you with.  We should lead by positive example, rather than looking like a xenophobic hostile place.  

Lots of countries survive just fine without nukes, or even a military.  They are only needed if you are being a bully in the world.  You said it yourself that you would never use them.  They are an offensive weapon in every sense of the term.  We would be better served financially and morally with a defensive setup and just tell the world that their nukes represent.  They are just an atrocity waiting to happen.  

Even if you had them, and the will to use them, you can't.  Even if no one returned fire, the ancaps themselves would take you out.  The enemy could still invade.  All that money would have gone down the toilet.  

How is this for a solution?  You get your nukes and threaten the world.  I'll move somewhere that won't get nuked.  New Zealand seems like a cool place. 

I very much agree with everything said here.
And I wanted to add... when it comes to the intimidation factor, citizens of other countries might not know we aren't willing to use nukes... but I don't think the rulers are that stupid... What's to stop them from false flagging by nuking their own people, and blaming us in order to inspire them to fight us?

In this hypothetical scenario, I'll be putting my money toward any organization that wants to take the nukes, disassemble them, make something productive out of the scrap, and have a massive marketing campaign to the world that says something like, "Peaceful people don't destroy, they create.... come help us make things!  All peaceful people of the world are welcome here!".

I think you'll never get to an ancap society until you've got to the point where you don't need a contract for the non-aggression principle.  There's no point in getting people to sign a contract saying that they won't murder, rape, steal... If people are willing to do those things, they aren't going to abide by a contract anyways.  In a free society, where most people accept the non-aggression principal voluntarily of their own choosing, many people will have realized they need to protect their self ownership because there will always be *some* people willing to use force, and your person who doesn't believe in the non-aggression principal won't last very long.  Using violence and force is very dangerous.... unless you've convinced the person you're using force against that what you're doing is good... but at the point where most people understand and accept the non-aggression principal,  I'm thinking we'll all have woken up to that particular scam...

Anyways, I'm putting this vid in my arsenal.

Wish I could find a transcript of this.

Just read "The Iron Web" by Larken Rose. It's actually a work of fiction but it's really good.  (This is an excerpt)

That would be awesome for me.... I sell on eBay and I don't have any bitcoins but I'd love to earn some.

...Also "We need to (_fill in the blank_)" is a very collectivist way of talking about things.  We are not a group, we are individuals and we all have our different strengths and weaknesses... I'd be a terrible politician since I hate politics and I just can't hide that, it's better to use my own strengths to further voluntaryism in my own way.   But maybe you are really good at politics and could be the next Ron Paul or whatever, but don't tell us WE need to do it.   Try the free market way, just start doing it yourself, if it truly is a good idea then people will see that it works and hop on board with you.

Sorry, no thanks.  Using politics to get to voluntaryism just doesn't make sense, it's contradictory...  it's like saying "Obey me and be free".  Don't destroy our only true hope, the fact that anarchism makes sense! 

we should start working in the political arena to push Voluntaryist and Libertarian ideals in a legitimate way.

I'm not trying to call ya names here, but are you still a statist on the fence or something?  Why do you consider the political arena legitimate?  I always view politics and not legitimate at all.  I mean, sure statists think it's legitimate but the whole point is to convince them that it's not and you're not going to be able to convince anybody else if YOU don't even seem to believe it.

What's wrong with using the platform of the internet to get the word out? It's much more respectable and legitimate than the platform of politics.

I would very much like to hear any, almost any Undecided, ideas on how to escape the tyrany of work.

I don't understand how working to survive somehow equals tyranny.  Facts of nature just don't equal tyranny in my mind because where would it end?  Chewing your food and breathing air are work, do you also think that is tyranny?  Are you going to feel oppressed until you are plugged into one of those pod things like The Matrix where you live in an infantile state where you do not even have to eat or breathe? 

Wake up man, work is one of the things that makes life MOST WORTH living!!! You are really missing out if you think work is tyranny.  Here's something to try, find something productive that you enjoy doing.  Learn how to do it well and use your skills to make a product or service that has value to others and sell it.  This is what I do and personally, I LOVE working and without fun and challenging work to do I would surely die of boredom.  Tongue

I tried watching it, because I was curious to see how much propaganda was really in it.... but I was so bored within the first 10-20 minutes or so, I couldn't stand it anymore and had to turn it off.   Undecided  Kinda disappointing really, I was sorta looking forward to being pissed off about it (lol) or at least finding out for sure if it was at all something to be pissed off about.

What do you all like that's supposed to be "kid stuff"?

Often when I see a playground with no children playing in it (especially if it has a metal slide, a nice swing or one of those boingy animals) I'll stop and play for a while.

The Prisoner


It's pretty old and some of it is just... weird (which I quite enjoy) but there is also a lot of great anti-state dialog and lot of mocking of democracy/the media/etc.
13  General Category / Lounge / Re: Need to talk to you guys on: October 07, 2013, 11:42:09 AM
Want to know what really works?  Save yourself some time and just read Consumer Reports.   Wink

14  General Category / Lounge / Re: Need to talk to you guys on: October 05, 2013, 08:46:46 PM

Well there was that one article that detailed how to improve sexual positions. For example next time you're doing missionary put a pillow under your ass to change the angle of penetration, apparently changing the angle gets the penis to rub the clit... Granted I'm uber nerd so I haven't tried it yet Sad... But hopefully it works...

LOL, sounds like they're gettin' lazy.  Just plagiarizing the Kama Sutra or something.
15  General Category / Lounge / Re: Need to talk to you guys on: October 05, 2013, 07:21:24 PM
Hey cool, I stand corrected, we do have some women on the board. Tongue Feels less cliche now, so long as the conversation was just a bunch of guys talking about romance troubles it was starting to feel like a lame meme.

Anywho, great responses Poxodd! Smiley

Also, at MAM, what's Cosmo? Can you provide a link?

I'm almost positive you've heard of this magazine: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/

Women writing articles about what they like in bed, and about what turns them off in relationships etc... Granted people are individuals but seems like a good resource to me.

LOL, I wouldn't touch Cosmo with a ten foot pole (I ain't girly enough, and I pretty much hate all pop culture).   I also assume you have it backwards (but I didn't click the link to find out, admittedly, since, you know... I wouldn't want to touch it with a ten foot pole and all)... Cosmo is a woman's magazine, why would women want to know what they like in bed or what turns them off?  I hope they would already know that sort of thing (or consumers of this magazine have no identity of their own whatsoever, which would be pretty scary, but not that surprising I suppose).  I'm thinking it's more tips on getting guys, fashion, what celebrities use to magically erase all their wrinkles, yadda yadda, I guess it might be helpful if you want to know what shallow girls (or housewives, I think my mom read Cosmo) are into these days.
