SHOW NOTES:

THE STATE’S PRAYER

Our leader, who art in the capital,
hallowed by Thy name.
Thy kingdom (or other mutually acceptable form of governance) come.
Thy will be done, in Acapulco as it is in Mexico City.
Give us this day our daily food stamps,
And forgive us our tax arrears, as we forgive the government for putting us into debt.
And lead us not into anarchy, but deliver us from freedom.
For Thine is the democracy, the power and the gory, until the next (s)election.

Amen

HYMN

Amazing State

Amazing state! How sweet the rule
of our wise Congress!
Just pay your tax you stupid fool
and leave the rest to us.

I forsake my sovereignty
and join the party.
I lick boots of authority
and vote my life to thee.

Don’t disrespect the president
Or we’ll jail all of ya!
If you don’t like our government
then move to Somalia.

    Cool one.

    On that vain a book which explains pretty well how and why Kings were holy.
    A novel: “Sire” by Jean Raspail
    Interesting read by a monarchist.

    • Duck says:

      I like Terry Pratchett’s take on kingship in one of his his witches Disk world novels… the people preferred an absolute monarch… and if he was not a competent king he absolutely would not be monarch for very long.
      Oh looked up the author to find out about the book and see he wrote Camp of the saints too.

    A hilarious talk with very serious undertones. I’m so glad I got to see it live and in person!

    • Steve Smith says:

      Fortunate indeed. I wonder what travel will be like in the foreseeable future. It might not be too easy to travel as it has been.
      However, a customer who walked into my office yesterday and was surprised by the sign on the door requesting that people not wear masks mentioned that he and his family just returned from Turkey and were not tested, quarantined or hassled in any way. But then this is Florida who seems to have a somewhat sane governor.
      I still don’t go to his church however.

    Amazing speech! Loved it!

  5. Duck says:

    The state will not fade if it looses legitimacy, it will just become more violent. I think it was The Unabomber who said that violent cops are a failure because the best police convince and threaten rather then depend upon their “authorit-tor” stick. If the currant state fails a new one will rise up because violence, murder,rape and theft are how humans behave in the wild.

    People were quite able to inflict genocide and murder and theft on each other BEFORE the formalized state existed,.The ‘state’ (from the tribe to the polis to republic to empire to technocracy) exists in response to human needs and human nature… Its primary reason for existence is to manage VIOLENCE , limiting it internally and making it more effective on outsiders. The proto state can be seen when you see chimps patrolling and killing other chimp groups.

    Humans are not perfectible, and they are not naturally ‘free’- Freedom itself is a tricky word which is why freedom eludes most people…Was Ted Bundy free because he overcame societies morality? Is a drug addict free if society lets him buy drugs?

    Being ‘free’ takes a huge amount of choice, education, training, desire and self control. Most people will ONLY invest in those things because of some ‘religious’ belief in something higher then themselves….be that a theistic or a political religion.
    Something WILL fill the gap left by the decline of formalized religion which is not an accident… by pushing “God” aside the oligarchs make room for themselves as ‘god’ … THEY are the people who truly believe in no higher power then themselves and have walked that path almost to its inevitable conclusion.

    BTW satan is not an anarchist…he was trying to usurp kingship for himself. Any assault of authority by such a being is just to cause an upset with a ‘revolution’ of the world with themselves rotating to be at the top

    • Jed says:

      170 million people were killed by their own governments during the 20th century. I don’t think those folks would agree with the state being the answer to keeping humanitie’s wildness in check. Humanity legitimizes wild behavior through the state. The people who go into government do so out of a belief that they have the right to rule over others and that very belief is what humanity needs to evolve out of, and out of “beliefs” in general, toward truth. The truth is that each human is responsible for what it is they have the right to control, that being themselves.

      • cu.h.j says:

        You and Duck make good points. Humans in the name of “the state” commit violence and murder. Individuals commit violence and murder on their own. Both are true. I recall the 1992 riot in Los Angeles, people unleashing violence on each other for no reason, taking out displaced outrage on each other. A person would hate to be caught in the middle of a violent mob without the means to defend oneself.

        Human beings are in fact animals, it’s biology. I’m not insulted by this assessment. Violence has been a constant in our history as far as I know. I don’t believe in state monopoly on violence or that a state reduces violence overall. Perhaps someone has actual data or numbers on this presumption? People have the right to defend themselves without fear of persecution by the state.

        With that said, if the “state” or the paradigm of “laws” and rule-following just vanished, there would probably be a power vacuum. How would people who are incapable of defending themselves survive the violent criminal element that is ever-present in our society? Not just the criminal psychopaths on top/ie the banksters and eugenicists, but the everyday gangsters, rapists, and thugs? The psychopaths on the bottom would try to fill the void of the state/rule of law paradigm. This is my assumption anyway, living here in the US and having lived in the inner city.

        • Duck says:

          cu.h.j
          Thanks
          The idea of rule following is going out of our society, which is why the state is growing bigger and more powerful and being worshiped. They push the dissolution of family and community and set us against each other so we need them more 🙁
          I think some where along the way people went to sleep… no one in the middle ages was dumb enough to think the King actually loved but I swear there are tons of people who really think Trump or Hillary actually care if they live or die.

          • Stronghorse says:

            Yes, somewhere along the way, along came television and professional sports, and the people became entertained. Thus they no longer paid attention to their duty to keep track of, and maintain control over, those that were selected to represent them.
            Once the powers that be witnessed what a powerful tool Bread & Circuses truly was and IS, they took control of the means of entertainment, and the rest is history.
            Why do you suppose the government in the UK mandated that lending institutions must make loans to anyone and everyone who wanted to buy a TV in the late 1940s?

            • Duck says:

              “… must make loans to anyone and everyone who wanted to buy a TV in the late 1940s?…”

              Thanks I didn’t know that but it makes sense.

      • Duck says:

        Jed
        I did not say the state kept human wildness ‘in check’… I said it regulates it to lessen INNER group killings and increase lethality towards OUT group persons.
        This behavior is seen in the earliest humans and in some primates (see links below).

        You will also notice that the governments most violent towards populations nominally “theirs” were either mostly RUN by outsiders… (heavily Jewish bolsheviks in Russian civil war and the Holodomor) or targeted towards groups who were considered “out” or harmful (as with Armenian Genocide and the Nazi attack on jews)

        As to humans being responsible for THEMSELVES and heir actions I agree totally, you are 100% right…. However, that has nothing to do with what I said about the ‘state’ (in some form) being a fixture of human culture because it grows out of human nature and imbues a huge advantage to its members in committing violence against those outside of it.

        Religion is also another outgrowth of human nature, the desire to conform to a higher authority I only ‘totally’ absent in a psychopath.
        The WORSHIP of government is a disease that the modern world suffers heavily from because people will always defer to the highest power they see… and they no longer believe in a god. This is a deliberate process that you can see such folks as the Rockefellers engineering it just as Kings regulated religion to suit themselves

        Government is fire… what are the chances that we’re going to do without fire as a species because its dangerous?

        • Jed says:

          I hear you, cool links — you need not go any further than just mentioning how most of our species drives cars, around here anyway — like midlevel jousting.

        • perdita says:

          I enjoy your insight Duck and info. Could it be possible that we are multidimensional beings projecting part of our consciousness in 3D reality to have 5 senses experiences? could it be possible that we live in a simulation within a simulation and we have no clue who is in control at all and we not even reflect upon it?

          • Duck says:

            perdita
            cogito ergo et sum
            The only thing you can TRULY know is that you are thinking… if you are thinking you must exist. You have no way to prove your not in a simulation, however I would posit that it is not a useful position to take since
            a)you are unable to escape if it is all fake and
            b)if its not fake you ought to focus on appropriate actions
            Even if you ARE in a simulation (assuming all simulations advance to the point that they create a simulation inside themselves then outside the nesting dolls of fake realities there must exist a TRUE reality, which presumably contains a creator who cares about how I like my life, real or fake

        • Alchemist says:

          I forced myself to study the Armenian Genocide; it was my attempt at understanding the true essence of evil… to know what we’re up against. Wish I could “unlearn” some of that. Too bad there was no mention of it in James’ WW1 documentary. Anyway, let’s hope what’s going on in Artsakh right now doesn’t bring on round two.

    • Alchemist says:

      “All tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but once the fraud is exposed they must rely exclusively on force.”
      — George Orwell

      Duck- You’re right about freedom. Nothing in the world is free. The price for freedom is the time and effort it takes to achieve and maintain. Sometimes great sacrifices are required. To quote Orwell again “Freedom is Slavery.”

      Voluntaryism only works if the whole world signs up; it’s an idealistic dream for those who are good. Evil craves power. They need to kill the King before assuming His position. I believe this is THE big event—good vs. evil battling to inherent the earth. But how can it be? One doesn’t exist without the other. There will always be both, but only one reigns.

      • Libertydan says:

        Very Philosophical! To question Good vs Evil, or even if we have a purpose on this Earth (Flat or Not).
        Is there another Realm of Reality which we only see in our Dreams?
        What about “Virtual Reality”, can it be used to Steal our Dreams?
        I have taught High School Math and Science, including Chemistry and Physics, and I can say that there is much that can not be explained by “Science”, or Math for that matter.
        Perhaps, we were born into this World for a purpose, if not only to see if we, (as a Spirit), are worthy of transcending to another Realm. The evil we see in this world/life, is perhaps, just here to test us, and make us choose where we stand, for Good, or for Evil.
        Or, perhaps it is possible to make the Earth like Heaven, which in my mind, would be a place where Evil no longer exits.

        • Duck says:

          Libertydan
          “..Or, perhaps it is possible to make the Earth like Heaven, which in my mind, would be a place where Evil no longer exits…”

          Trying to make heaven on earth is when you see humans at their most evil… as CS Lewis said the greed and evil of a tyrant has limits but a person who is willing to kill or torture you and TRULY believes its “for your own good” has no limits.

        • Alchemist says:

          Right, like where is memory stored? We have no answer. Is the earth round, flat, square, or a figment of our imagination? Does the brain create consciousness or the other way around?

          Some things we’ll never have the answer to and I like it that way. I like the mystery. Life is magical and miraculous and I find myself constantly humbled and in awe. Heaven is a mindset. We always have “two windows” to look through. The choice is ours:)

      • Erwin Nijs says:

        Making the whole world sign up for voluntaryism might be an idealistic dream but isn’t as far fetched as you might think. We have actually a historical precedent for it. Funnily enough, it happened with religion. It’s called Freedom of religion.

        Admittedly, people were only ready for it after decades of religious warfare and millions of deaths.

        If you’re interested in the finer details as how they achieved it, check out the Treaty of Westphalia.

        It’s one of the most important, but very little talked about events in recent human history, IMO. Unfortunately it’s also the event that gave rise to the current system of nation states.
        Ah well, you can’t get everything right the first time I guess.

        • Duck says:

          “…Making the whole world sign up for voluntaryism might be an idealistic dream but isn’t as far fetched as you might think. We have actually a historical precedent for it. Funnily enough, it happened with religion. It’s called Freedom of religion….”

          Freedom of religion is not the same thing… it was toleration of others beliefs IN SO FAR (and ONLY in so far) as they did not threaten the Government.

          • Erwin Nijs says:

            Religious ideologies and political ideologies are very much the same. Isn’t that what James’s speech was all about?
            Similar problems require similar solutions.

            The modern type of government, namely nation states, did not even exist back then. It’s as if the people in power, or aspiring for that power, back then invented them just to keep the monopoly on power in tact.

            Whatever their motivation was. They showed us a way out.

            • Duck says:

              Erwin
              “..Religious ideologies and political ideologies are very much the same…”

              I’m listening to “revolt of The Elites” right now… the two are very different things in a healthy society.

              The idea that all viewpoints are equally valid is a stupid idea that has helped kill the western world.
              People can tolerate those who go to a different house of worship or pray differently .. but how is it possible for pro life and pro choice people to tolerate each other? Nor is it possible for Pro slavery and anti slavery policies to coexist?

              Society, or those who matter in society, will choose one over the other and repress disent. Christians once made laws abusing homosexuals…now homosexuals make laws to abuse Christians who dont want to bake them wedding cakes.

              • Erwin Nijs says:

                Religious and political ideologies used to be one and the same. That’s were the notion of separation of Church and State stems from. Like you just said yourself: “Christians once made the laws…”

                I never said all viewpoints are equally valid. I’m saying that everyone should be free to decide which one is most valid for his or her own situation. The best ones will attract the most subscribers and the worst ones will automatically disappear.
                Not all cars are built equal either, nor does everyone needs the same functionality from them. The freedom to choose individually, that’s what makes a free market so great.

                What you want is to keep the tyranny of the majority. Probably because you currently belong to a majority.
                Soon a coalition of left, far left, black and LBGTQ123456… will be in the majority and you will see more of these anti christian laws popping up.

            • Alchemist says:

              Any type of belief system can be exploited to fit the power players’ agendas.

              “1984” is talked about a lot these days… it’s too bad there isn’t much discussion about the obvious metaphor when it’s never been more relevant or important to grasp. Orwell most definitely understood “The Church of the Holy State.”

              It is a truly eye-opening book and Orwell masterfully illustrated paradigms shifting. It’s just beautiful. Anyone who takes it for face value is missing the point. Worth a re-read for those who might have missed it!

        • Alchemist says:

          I believe it. Never before have we had the opportunity to make that dream a reality. The time is now! It will be a long and dark road to get there, but I’d say most of us in the CR community have a pretty good chance of reaching our destination 😉

          I’ll look into the treaty you mentioned. Thank you.

  6. nirvana says:

    Bravo, James, Bravo!
    For the sake of posterity, Bravo!

  7. Jed says:

    That was good, and I didn’t have to sit, stand, kneel, stand, sit, or gag on farts. I gave that stuff up for Lent back around 1975

  8. madzz says:

    “If I steal, it is theft. If the state steals, it is taxation.
    If I kill, it is murder. If the state kills, it is warfare.
    If I force someone to work for me involuntarily, it is slavery. If the state does it, it is (conscription?).
    If I confine someone against their will, it is kidnapping. If the state does it, it is incarceration.
    Nothing has changed but the label.”

  9. Ahmed Al Zamily says:

    Excellent presentation James! It’s certainly no exaggeration to say that there are people who believe in their government as if they were Gods who have descended from the Heavens to dictate what the plebeians must do.

  10. Fact Checker says:

    Too many choppy jumps for me. Kills that Corbett flow too often.

  11. NorthernBean says:

    Well, James, I am struggling for the words to say. As I think you know, I have enormous respect for your investigative analyses and pattern detection. This is matched only by your ability to describe the spectacular view whereby historical peaks are located on the giant, slowly-creeping tectonic plains of world events.

    But this was a clunker, James. All of a sudden I imagined myself as misunderstood by you as I feel misunderstood by Leftists, Democrats, and Rightist Normies.

    I think Duck, above, came as close as any to expressing what needed to be said. You seem to be extremely presumptive about those of us who are not full-blown anarchists. My losses and debts as well as the burden that I placed on my friends probably is approaching $400,000. I KNOW the power and the evil of a people who wrap themselves with the illegitimated mantle of state authority. And I am one of the very lucky ones. I think of the dead people and children in rice patties and shot-up desert cities; the falsely imprisoned and executed; the workmen robbed of the profit of their labors. My sin? I cared about the public that I served.

    In the end, James, your view is naïve. People organized as governmental bodies can be evil, yes. But people organized as non-governmental mobs can be evil too. In fact, individuals all by their single selves can be incredibly evil. Each one of us can be that evil self. If you have not had THAT epiphany yet, you are either lucky and are destined to remain so—or you will come to the realization that but for the grace of God there goes you. I pray that you will not have to pay a heavy price for the realization and neither will anyone else.

    I do not think that I, nor many of us, have the illusions or delusions of which you accuse us. Yes, I WILL VOTE with full knowledge of the mess we are in and the lies, Plato’s Cave and all of that. I am not looking for a voting-day sticker of absolution.

    Your anarchic utopia holds a quiet, peaceful night waiting to be shattered by the hooves of another Genghis’ hordes who will slaughter, rape and steal.

    Please keep up the great body of your work. You are an asset. I thanks to you for what you get right.

    • flammable says:

      James has stated in the past that he does not want government wiped out. If there are people that want government and will benefit from it’s existence then that is fine. He also did a video warning about the promise of utopia leading to evil and bloodshed so I don’t think he supports any utopia.

      The point of the video was that government has stopped being government and turned into a cult. People like you truly understand what government is and what voting is. Unfortunately most people have the wrong ideas and expectations of government and we sometimes approach the topic from that angle. I do think James need to do a better job and makes sure he does not imply the extreme opposite and suggest forcing
      non-government on everyone. Because like you said, that will produce evil as well.

      • NorthernBean says:

        I see. He sure seemed rather absolute in that mocking video. Mind you, I am not somehow “down on” Corbett as the result of this. Last week, I lost a cherished friend and a project that we were mutually working on over a Corbett video (the welcome to newcomers). Though that was an innocuous video, apparently my friend knew more about the depth of James’ anarchism than did I. I certainly will still defend James’ good work and fully intend to circulate it as a favorite device for red pilling. I cannot scratch the surface of his investigative analysis and synthesis. Thanks for your thoughtful comment. It will prove valuable to reflect upon in the coming days.

        • Erwin Nijs says:

          James did conflate government and State a few times in his speech. But what I think he railed against most was the State, not government.
          A State is a government with monopoly over a territory, which like any unnatural monopoly, is inherently bad for all except those in control of it. Governments, as in governing bodies, in itself are not inherently bad IMO. Nor in the opinion of most voluntarists I think.

          • NorthernBean says:

            Hi Erwin. I cannot really follow your categorizations of state and government. Tonight, I listened to musical items on YouTube (I know). One was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHNLdHe8uxY , Varnus Xavér, “BACH’S TOCCATA & FUGUE IN THE BERLINER DOM” and the other was another group playing a piece by another German composer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lNaajK3Scc , only this was in a Mall in Tokyo. Both were beautiful performances. These were two different cultures. The latter has been terribly penetrated by Western influences—but their beauty still shines through. I want to keep such beauty. I want to preserve the ethnic, racial and cultural “stem cells,” if you will, that ensure an enduring supply of such human variation. How does one do that? One does that with enbordered nationstates. All states should be nationstates. That is, they are places where soil and blood (viz., genetics) form a consistent and stable reality. Can some tiny amount of immigration occur? Sure, as can trade, educational training for limited and well-defined periods of stay, cultural exchange, etc. Governments are devices that a people create and which suit the cultures that emerge from their genetically influenced nervous systems (50% to 80% as the best estimates suggest). A people are inseparable from, and identified by definition as, their nation. Following closely is such a people’s bordered structuring which is a state. Borders are vibrant, active places where exchange occurs, but these legal and physical structures help preserve a people’s healthy boundaries. The borders of a state need to be defended—by force if necessary. That is how important they are. Now, about governments. The governments a people chose for themselves can be changed, but it is best if this is not done frequently. Governments are not the people (an ethnic reality), the government is not the state either. The latter is prior in being than the latter formed by positive law. Inside a nationstate with the government it has (and hopefully choses), a people can live a freely or in as much conformity as their bio-cultural identity permits and is so preferred by them. I know, the United States is attempting to be a civic national state and it is a mess. We will have to work it out. Personally, I like lots of freedom and lots of responsibility. the two go hand in hand. Want more of one? then you need more of the other.

            • Erwin Nijs says:

              This is how a governing body is defined on wikipedia. It describes both government and State nicely in one sentence too:

              A governing body is a group of people that has the authority to exercise governance over an organization or political entity. The most formal is a government, a body whose sole responsibility and authority is to make binding decisions in a given geopolitical system (such as a state) by establishing laws. Other types of governing include an organization (such as a corporation recognized as a legal entity by a government), a socio-political group (chiefdom, tribe, family, religious denomination, etc.), or another, informal group of people.

              This is how a nation is defined on wikipedia:

              A nation is a stable community of people formed on the basis of a common language, territory, history, ethnicity, or psychological make-up manifested in a common culture.

              I believe you are conflating all three. Which prevents you from finding a solution for a problem with one of them.

              It’s not because when a state gets abolished that the nation should get abolished too. You don’t have to throw the baby out with the bath water.
              I will even argue that it cannot be abolished without a large centrally organized effort, which is only possible through the power of a State.

              Same with migration; The single biggest driver of migration is the State. People have essentially three ways to vote: with their wallets, with a pencil and a ballot box and with their feet. When voting with their wallets is not allowed and voting with a pencil doesn’t yield the desired result, the only thing that remains is voting with their feet.

              When people are allowed to subscribe to the type of governance that fits their lives best without having to move to the respective territory, political refugees will disappear overnight and economic refugees will slowly disappear as well as soon as the prospects in their places of birth improve.

              • NorthernBean says:

                Thanks Erwin. Sorry, I have been busy. Let me think about your comments regarding the nation and the state. Also, let me back up one step, and I am not sure where you are on the question of ethnostates. I am a huge proponent of ethnostates. Perhaps this is where you find the issue with a blending. I do not expect Wikipedia to be advancing the causes of ethnostates. Also, you state: “I believe you are conflating all three. Which prevents you from finding a solution for a problem with one of them.” I did not notice my having any hindrance in finding a solution to a problem. And perhaps we agree on the next point, but are simply using different language, I do not see the ethnostate as a problem perhaps save its failure in the case of European-based states having been negligent, rather government have become comandeered: captured and turned against the ethnostate from which they arouse. There is lots of definitional work that we would have to do.

            Hmmm, not that I claim to be one yet but you may find that many a Voluntaryist ended up there because they believe any type of government to be inherently bad because it restricts their freedom.

            I do agree with Larken Rose’s points about govt. But I don’t see much difference in limited govt and “hiring others to do things” such as a community of Voluntaryists hiring a security service, people to maintain a water system, road maintainers, … all which require fees(taxes).

            Taxes being described as theft by Larken Rose and others. Which it is if you are paying for other’s free stuff, like politician’s kickbacks. One can choose to donate to those in need.

            So it seems to me, to obtain something very similar to Voluntaryism without freaking out so many govt indoctrinees, would be to contract with those like minded folks to support, nominate, and elect them to INCREMENTALLY dismantle most of govt. Yank them via breach of contract should they lose their way; without waiting for an election.

            Its only a matter of getting people to do slightly more than just voting… but screening for their own candidates rather than the lazy choosing between two or so bad choices placed in front of them.
            –However easy in concept, getting people pried away from their entertainments and diversions for an hour a month (which is all it would take) seems way too much for those addicted to being totally all about themselves. Unless you are a better salesperson (I’m clearly lousy); since all I have gotten is “I do my duty by voting.”

          Sorry to hear you lost such a friend. I lost one over less who apparently had enough “nonsense” over a period of time, which seemed to be offering facts that the TV kept hidden.

          It would seem I was not as cherished as his world view (and ego protection of that [not wanting to be wrong about what he has chosen to believe]), which he blindly chose, refusing to look at source material (a video or two).

          I’ve sort of regretted that loss, however, realizing that if I’m not worth a look see at some actual information then he must only value “good time” friends(fiends?) that tell jokes over beers.

      Art of War, Sun Tzu
      If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
      If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
      If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

      • cu.h.j says:

        Yes, I am inclined to agree with this. I have seen greed, prejudice, ignorance, willingness to take the easy way out in myself. I have been able to rise above those instincts in the right circumstance to allow my heart and consciousness to guide me in making better choices.

        But those “darker” instincts are there within me. I do have a conscience as do most people, but many don’t, and those people can be dangerous, like Bill Gates and the big players, but also the random Ted Bundy type serial killer.

      I believe I should have said “presumptuous.” As for my ending flourish of garble speak: “I thanks to you,” I have no idea how that scramble made it from the language centers in my disorganizing brain to my mouth. For your patience, and that of all the other readers, all I can say is: “I thanks to you much so with the bottom of my heart.” All of a sudden, talks by George W. Bush are becoming much more cogent and compelling to me.

                Those W quotes are priceless, but I think further proof that it’s all an act — he can’t be that stupid, he’d ‘ov crashed his fighterjet. They wouldn’t have let him have a jet, as it is they made sure it was a single seater. If he had the urge to Pop out of it, there would be no other crew on board — costs big money to train flight crew. He took off with a country, bailed out and watched IT crash and burn instead. The apple doesn’t bail out far from the tree. Bailing out those savings and loans crooks was not a problem after snuffin’ out that flight crew.

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

            Back when George W Bush’s Daddy was President, I worked at a Hotel in Dallas as a Bellman.

            I often would shuttle GW’s Secret Service people to his house for their shift. His house was next door to Mary Kay’s pink house.

            As a Bellman, you carry bags to the room for the guest. Those gun bags were kind of heavy.

            I also shuttled the Secret Service to a “Gentleman’s Club” on occasions. The club gave me a kickback for every person I brought them.

            • Jed says:

              Great stuff. We’re all carrying their bags now. And wtf? You’d think the SS’d behave in Texas after their 63’ performance.

            • wylie1 says:

              Interesting HRS. Sorry that Hotel didn’t believe in those rolling baggage trolley-carts. But you probably were in great shape during that job.

              Next to Mary Kay’s pink house… don’t know how they could stand it… I’m so fond of pink I wouldn’t even ask my type out, if wearing pink.

              I have little doubt the kickback thing is alive and well in Congress, legislatures, and every other level of govt, as it is for taxis, shuttles, travel agents, and such.

              Were those Secret Service fellers actually secretive or did you hear some interesting comments? …Not that I care to hear about the Bushes but curious in general.

              • HomeRemedySupply says:

                Secret Service – They were just ordinary working folks, but with above average intelligence. A few women too. Very polite, affable and ‘approachable’.
                They really didn’t talk shop in front of me all that much.

                When I asked them about George and his family’s demeanor, they did say that the family was friendly and kind.
                The house had a small front yard for the neighborhood of rich homes, but mature trees and bushes. There was a very small guardhouse. During the winter, sometimes Laura Bush would bring out something hot to drink or eat.

                At the Embassy Suites Hotel, we did have carts. Sometimes, they aren’t worth the trouble. I did this gig while trying some entrepreneurial ventures.

                At the same location on 14 acres was the Dallas Dunfey Royal Coach Inn which really looked like a castle. I worked there as a Bellman in 1979 and very early 80’s.
                The Bell Captain (Richard A.) and I became good friends even though he was about 20 years older.

                That castle was torn down. It was replaced by shops and the Embassy Suites Hotel. My friend became the Bell Captain and helped me get the job.
                Great guy with some wild Bellman stories spanning decades. He passed away about 5 years ago. He was a Bellman most all of his life.

            • wylie1 says:

              Thank you for the reminiscences HRS, truly.

              One thing I’m not too happy about in this life –when people I am fond of take their leave to the beyond. I can only hope your bellman friend and my friends and relatives are happy or at peace or something like that.

              On occasion I used to feel sorry for the wives of such politicians, like the Bushes, but after seeing reactions to whatever report/info Trump made sure some of them attending [W]’s dad’s funeral, tends to make me think either they had an idea of what they were signing up for or had little to no problem with it after discovery of their wicked ways.

              I would have been quite surprised had the SS mentioned the Bushes were anything else. Most everyone who had reason to know me, treated me well during my years in TX. I don’t miss the humidity in San Antonio though!

    • cu.h.j says:

      I agree that not everyone in government is evil or just wants power. The level of corruption in our government in the US is probably at an all-time high though. This is evidenced by the continued lockdowns in certain states and mask mandates and unwillingness to look at the evidence from scientists and health care providers who are telling them to stop the lockdowns.

      I think people tend to not want to go against prevailing policies, not all but so many that the outliers like Ron Paul and other libertarian thinkers are silenced or ignored.

      I also still vote, especially in local elections where those policies may directly affect me. I think the least amount of government and getting rid of the Federal Reserve in this country would do a lot of good.

    • Steve Smith says:

      I am speaking only for myself when I say that I don’t disagree with you about human nature. But my objection to government as it is currently practiced is that it takes the potentially evil individuals and bestows upon them the power to use violence force against their fellow citizens.
      If governments were to adopt the NAP as a fundamental principle. Then my opinion of the concept of “government” would likely change.

      • Erwin Nijs says:

        Even more important than the NAP would be the adoption of voluntary subscription I believe.

        • Steve Smith says:

          If the NAP were truly adopted and practiced, wouldn’t everything be voluntary?

          • Erwin Nijs says:

            That still leaves the problem of monopolies on the table.
            If every government now says: All the public spaces in this territory are our property and we dictate the rules on them. If you don’t like it you are free to leave anytime you want.
            Then no aggression is committed.

            • Steve Smith says:

              Right. And as long as that government continues to avoid using aggression when I tell them to go screw themselves because I ain’t going anywhere and I don’t care about their rules then all is well.
              If they use aggression to force me to leave. Well then they never adopted the principle in the first place did they.

              • Erwin Nijs says:

                Sure, if you don’t trespass on their property and violate the NAP yourself. Let me know how it went.

              • Steve Smith says:

                Why would I violate the very principle that I expect them to adhere too? And if I were to violate the NAP by trespassing. They would have every right to protect their property by force.
                Are you unclear on the concept or am I?

    • Octium says:

      “People organized as governmental bodies can be evil”,

      No, people organized as government bodies are always evil!

      That’s not an oversimplification or a black and white statement.

      The thing that separates a government over any other kind of organization is that it assumes to rule over people weather or not individuals agree to be ruled over or not. That is the evil part.

      Even if your involvement in government is no more than voting at elections then that is just as immoral as hiring a hitman to murder an innocent person on your behalf.

      You might argue that most people are not aware of what they are doing and the lack of intent means they are not evil in the same way a mentally retarded person can be absolved of crimes they commit – but that view is still not very complementary of the people.

      • Erwin Nijs says:

        To be more precise: people organized as governing bodies in a system of nation states with a monopoly on power over a territory are always evil.

        The problem with people participating in it through voting is that they don’t have much of a choice.
        In a system with a monopoly on power it’s either rule over others or get ruled over yourselves. If you want power and control over your own life, you are forced to participate in the struggle for that power.

        The only way to eliminate that is to eliminate the monopoly.

    Great show, clever and funny. I have to agree with others like Duck tho, I’ve never believed in anarchism, although I’d like to. I think there’s a natural propensity for people to conspire and group together for power. I think the natural pattern is for centralisation, not decentralisation. I remember I had a vision when I was about 7 of viewing the world from some location in space and seeing it as a united hive-mind electrical planet that was capable of speaking with one voice to other planets. Although I don’t personally accept what’s happening and I expect to die relatively young in resistance, my daughter, aged 14, does accept it. She knows all the stuff because I’ve showed it to her, but she accepts what’s happening anyway, saying that she doesn’t want to be free and individual and is happy to be part of a hive and that in order to be allowed to join in she would accept a vaccine even if it alters her DNA and allows her to be essentially remote controlled. What can you say to that? As AH apparently said, “Your child belongs to us already…What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

      It does speak to the power of psychological warfare that people think they will ‘love their enslavement’ as Huxley said, but TBH I think such people just feel weak and powerless on the one hand and on the other have not yet had someone horrifically abuse their power over them and so dont fear power. As the Unabomber said in his manefesto the collectivist (what he called ‘left-ish’) people usally dont believe they can exist as a single person

        It appears to be very effective to generate compliance. I wonder if using techniques that therapists have used to treat Stockholm syndrome would help to try to wake people up.

      • di says:

        I agree that her statement is the result of psychological warfare and also due to the destruction of virtually all forms of community involvement not controlled by the state.

    • cu.h.j says:

      I would probably ask her why she wants that. It’s an interesting statement. I remember when I was a kid and was naturally resistant to rules and authority. Even when I was a teen, was very rebellious, but in order to get things done had to go along to a certain degree.

      Maybe she feels lonely to not be a part of a group. That’s also common for young people to want to be in a community. It’s not a bad thing, but taking an experimental drug to join shouldn’t be required.

      This is why I think it’s necessary to build alternative communities. This whole thing though reminds me of the Borg in Star Trek, “We are Borg, you will be assimilated” It’s kind of creepy.

      • Octium says:

        Except that membership of the Borg wasn’t voluntary which kind of makes it harder from a psychological point of view to defend yourself against it. IE you would need to kill victims in order to defend yourself.

        However if people voluntarily join the collective I would have no problems defending myself against them.

Maybe she just thinks I’m old fashioned with my 70s thinking, and this is the new rebellion.

        • cu.h.j says:

          She’s probably rebelling against your “authority”. It’s a normal part of adolescence to rebel against their parents/parent.

          This also may be overwhelming and I would probably do things that didn’t involve discussing these things.

          Then you can pick up later when she seems to feel more grounded. Sometimes things are more abstract in the beginning but once a person starts living it, the reality of the situation is a slap in the face.

          Someday she will probably thank you for telling her the truth.

          You have the wrong attitude about this… you should just set her to work doing all the household chores, inform her your spending her college fund and stop paying for gifts and entertainment (esp cell phone data and internet)

          If she complains tell her that she is a cog in the machine.

          Either she will see the worth of freedom OR you get your chores done.

      I’d bet she’s sharp as a razor, questioning you and torturing you, sounds like she’s looking for truth. Sounds like she’s critical of what you’ve told her, that means you’ve raised a critical thinker.

        She’s smart, but no, she grasped the picture pretty quick when I showed her the Bill Gates trilogy and a few others. She says she doesn’t believe in covid at all but all her friends do so she keeps her mouth shut. But she sees that I’m in a minority and losing position, so that’s probably not appealing. I think she’s just trying to look on the bright side in the face of a force that seems insurmountable. She says she thinks humans probably should be mostly wiped out and that she’s never expected to live a long life.

          It would seem that in her indoctrination school they have pointed out all the horrible things of man (whether true or not). Done so in a method that causes a bit of emotional reaction, such as anger towards those wrong things and who caused them. Including gloom and impending doom of the ever polluted planet killing smiling dolphins, etc.

          Using emotion is the easiest and quickest way to override logic and reason. Movies have ratings to keep kids away from certain material they are not ready for. Yet these indoctrination schools are overloading the young with too much emotion in ways they are not really ready for, nor able to push the emotion aside to truly evaluate additional facts and logic. Many adults have the same problem from watching too much bogus news.

          I’m sure you realize the school is the problem which is using her emotions against her, indoctrinating into Marxism as is their goal whether each teacher knows it or not.

          If it were me and I couldn’t home school nor afford an alternative, I would find ways to make her want to make choices:
          –Do you want pancakes and syrup or I have this old oatmeal that has been in storage for a long time, similar to govt issue? Would you like to bring one of your cheerful friends to go for a short hike (bike ride, etc) or would you rather clean the bathroom (car, dog pooh, or whatever)? And so on over time.

          Eventually she will figure out (especially with a hint) that the hive doesn’t get to make choices that are more appealing.

    Began with an interesting slip of the lip at 10:19;

    “…but it has come to my attention that the heresy of statism has been catching on…”

    (rather than the “heresy of Statheism has been catching on…”.)

    Freud would have a very short boring field day on that one.

    Carl Jung on the other hand in his The Undiscovered Self has something of pertinence to add to this presentation:

    “… The moral responsibility of the individual is then
    inevitably replaced by the policy of the State (raison d’état). Instead of moral and mental differentiation of the individual, you have public welfare and the raising of the living standard. The goal and meaning of individual life (which is the only real life) no longer lie in individual development but in the policy of the State, which is thrust upon the individual from outside
    and consists in the execution of an abstract idea which ultimately tends to attract all life to itself. The individual is increasingly deprived of the moral decision as to how he should live his own life, and instead is ruled, fed, clothed and educated as a social unit, accommodated in the appropriate housing unit, and amused in accordance with the standards that give pleasure and satisfaction to the masses. The rulers, in their turn, arejust as much social units as the ruled and are distinguished only by the fact that they are specialized mouthpieces of theState doctrine. They do not need to be personalities capable of judgment, but thorough going specialists who are unusable outside their line of business. State policy decides what shall
    be taught and studied…

    …This development becomes logically unavoidable the moment the individual masses together with others and becomes obsolete. Apart from agglomerations of huge masses of people, in which the individual disappears anyway, one
    of the chief factors responsible for psychological massmindedness is scientific rationalism, which robs the individual of his foundations and his dignity. As a social unit he has lost his individuality and become a mere abstract number in
    the bureau of statistics. He can only play the role of an interchangeable unit of infinitesimal importance. Looked at rationally and from outside, that is exactly what he is, and from this point of view it seems positively absurd to go on talking about the value or meaning of the individual. Indeed,
    one can hardly imagine how one ever came to endow individual human life with so much dignity when the truth to the contrary is as plain as the palm of your hand…

    … Did not a well-known statesman recently confess that he had “no imagination in evil”? In the name of the multitude he was here giving expression to the fact that Western man is in danger of losing his shadow altogether, of identifying himself with his fictivepersonality and of
    identifying the world with the abstract picture painted by scientific rationalism…”

    Yes, I’d say Statism would appear to be the apotheosis of the cannibalistic collective persona or masked man devoid of individual values.

    James Corbett says:

    “…in my experience as a communicator of voluntaryist ideas
    …As if voting, elections, positions of responsibility and other things that exist under statism could not exist under voluntary associations…

    …We are free individuals freely interacting with those around us, bound by the moral injunction not to initiate force against others or take things from others against their will.

    We are responsible for our actions and their consequences, both positive and negative.

    We are responsible for what we do
    or don’t do
    to help those in our community,
    and to make this world better
    or leave it to rot.

    There is no political messiah that will descend from the heavens to tell us what to do or to protect us from the bad men.

    All we have is our self and our choices.

    We vote every day, not in some meaningless election, but in whom we choose to associate with, what we choose to spend our money on, what we choose to invest our time and energy doing.

    This is the essence of freedom….”

    Well, no one could claim that this has not been a vigorous and interesting thread.

  21. di says:

    So my best pal, who is a counsellor and self-confessed professional fence-sitter and doesn’t mind my questioning her on what it would take to encourage her to either side of the fence, has given me an answer. She said that ‘it’s fear of saying the wrong thing and someone hurting you as a consequence, so it’s safest to say nothing and wait for the “safe” option to appear. Deep seated fear based on early experience of saying or doing the wrong thing resulting in verbal or physical abuse’.

    Rather than the state being a replacement for God, isn’t it just sufficient that it represents your parents? Hence the efficacy of talking to us like we are children.

    We’re socially pressured en masse into lying to our kids from the kick off, and you can spot the compliant ones because they persist in continuing to believe in Santa even after all the other kids have figured it out.

  22. Erwin Nijs says:

    I like James’s comparison between religion and government. But there is one thing he did not get correct. We did not end the monopoly of the Church by abolishing religion. We ended it by allowing free choice and free market competition between religions. Likewise we should not end the monopoly of the State by abolishing government. We should end it by allowing free choice of governance and by allowing free market competition between governments.

    And just like freedom of religion allows for atheism, so will freedom of governance allow for anarchy or self governance. The solution to achieve self governance for ourselves is therefor not to advocate for less government but for the opposite, for more governments!
    Not Anarchy but Panarchy.

    Advocating for anarchy and for abolishing government puts off to many people, even many libertarians, and goes against the essence of voluntarism.
    Advocating for panarchy on the other hand is less off putting, especially if you explain it with religion as example. It’s completely in line with the tenets of voluntarism, allows for anarchy, minarchy or any other form of governance, even new ones. Furthermore the free market competition aspect of it will not only limit the governments to their proper size in a natural way, but will most likely also improve their services.
    Best of all, governments will no longer have to fight over territories, only for market share, which is inherently non violent, as opposed to warfare. Which is what we saw happen with religions too.

    Same with discouraging people to vote. I get that you want to discourage people to vote in a statist system because it is immoral to impose your will onto others. But the overwhelming majority of people don’t see it that way. They see it as their only way to get their voices heard, because they aren’t offered an alternative. It’s either voting and hoping your choise gets imposed onto others or let others impose their choice onto you.

    Instead, it would be better to offer people a chance to vote, not with a pencil and ballot box, but with their wallets. Like we vote for virtually everything else in life. That way anyone’s choices will only affect themselves and no others.

    • NorthernBean says:

      Erwin, I very much believe in grassroots free markets. Capitalism, another potential good, if pursued without the restraint of the state and Church, becomes a monster. James Corbett has done some of the best work on the mechanics of this via the tools the Globalists used: fiat currency, central banks—in short, usury. Please do keep wrestling with the commendable curiosity for these topics that you have been given. Contrary to James’ mockery of the Church in this video, I see European Christian theology and philosophy as being the foundations upon which we can make our case for political, enterprising and responsible personal free development. Thomism is liberating, not oppressive. Perchance you are so moved, try it, you’ll like it.

      • Erwin Nijs says:

        NorthernBean, You start out with saying that capitalism without the restraint of State an Church becomes a monster, and then you continu by mentioning fiat currency and central banks, both the quintessential examples of what happens when the State restrains the free market to a monopoly.
        Are you arguing fiat currency and central banks are good things?

      • wylie1 says:

        Not caring how certain dictionaries but not all, now lie about Capitalism; it is the ability of people to trade freely among themselves without interference, especially from govts. Capitalism is only an economic system that would happen naturally without any government.

        An economic system doesn’t become a monster any more than a gun becomes a killer.

        What are the monsters of Capitalism you are referring to? Which ones are you forced to buy from and have no alternative? I can’t think of one in my life that I cannot find alternatives for.

        Right now I am free to use things that disable viruses and terminate other microbes. It seems the evil weasel minions within the government will want me to be vaccinated, something I have no need for nor want; to benefit an agenda as well as big pharma.

        I’ll take your monster Capitalism any day over government.

        Marxists have been blaming what they have been incrementally causing and/or facilitating more of on Capitalism for decades. Such as big pharma, Monsanto, etc. Don’t fall for it being a negative of Capitalism.

        • cu.h.j says:

          Good points about capitalism and guns. I happen to agree with you here. I would like a free market.

          • wylie1 says:

            In general I would like free markets too… However, I recall about 30 years ago +- when Japan decided they wanted to take over the computer memory chip market. They flooded the usa market below cost until they wiped out our memory chip makers and those jobs, which we had a number of them. Then after they were gone awhile they started ramping up the price until it was a fair bit higher than our own manufacturers had been selling them for. No one would bother to get back in since they would just drop the price again to wipe them out.

            I have little doubt some money went under the table to certain congress persons to allow that. Not sure there really is such a thing as a truly free market, especially with another country. Currency exchange rates are manipulated as well as interest rates.

  23. Arby says:

    Larkin’s book appeals to me.

  24. Arby says:

    For what it’s worth, I’m a Christian and I liked James’s presentation.

    I like his point about the State worshippers sneering at the anarchists and saying “What’s your solution?” James’s answer is similar to one I give all the time. James’s first thought is why does there have to be one solution.

    Solutions flow from caring. Caring is knowing. Informed people will know things. When you care, you put your head up and look around. That’s how we learn, and people (who aren’t ruined) with natural curiosity, will put their heads up and look around. Parents, especially, will put their heads up (even if that means down, with noses in books) and look around because they will fret about the dangers to their family that are out there. When you look, you’ll see. When you see, then you’ll know. (For example, Do we see zillions of dead bodies in this ‘pandemic’?)

    Only arrogant fools will say “I have the solution.” (Well, that depends. I could sum up and say that solution is to care, or to be guided by God, but…) Solutions flow from caring and knowing (not in a superstitious sense but in the sense of paying attention and learning). I am limited. I am one. Even if I were perfect (which, at this time, I most certainly am not), I’d still be limited and one. We each know similar ‘and’ different things. We each bring something to the table, if we care. For one person to prescribe, as though that one person knew everything and was the only person whose solutions who mattered, doesn’t work. My solution: Care. The rest will take care of itself.

  25. bladtheimpaler says:

    Interesting sermon. The root meaning of the word heretic is ‘one who is able to choose’. Anarchy if based on Natural Law might be an ideal form for humans on which to order their affairs. It is one thing to dissolve one’s belief in statism only if that superstition is replaced with a belief in the bringing about of a truth that cannot be abridged other than by acting immorally. Or to put it in another way to transgress against another’s inalienable rights which exist at the very boundary of our own rights.Of course the biggest religion is the belief in money created through private interests in those own interests.

    • Erwin Nijs says:

      Wow, thanks for the etymological info! I didn’t know that.
      The problem I see with anarchy is that it doesn’t allow for much choice either.
      What if some heretics choose to be ruled?

    Thanks James that was fantastic. I immediately searched for, downloaded and read “The most dangerous superstition” and here is the weirdest thing!

    I’m an Aussie residing long term in Jakarta Indonesia. I’ve been a vociferous lcall critic of the ‘mandatory mask’ here being blatantly disobedient, not wearing mine and when I am forced to to get into places to buy food, wear it under my nose and cut obvious holes in it!

    THE MIRACLE THAT HAS OCCURRED, since absorbing the message is this. Today I went out in public with my damn unholy mask ON… Reason, I was thinking more about upsetting to everyone else who is convinced their lives are in danger.

    That is a total hoot to me… the rebel who stops rebelling so not to offend the people around me…. Go Figure??? The book is Fu$&ing right!

    Isn’t the solution merely to outlaw measures that prohibit choice? Everything is voluntary. Live and let live.

    That’s the thing with all these discussions. They’re always framed as a search for better alternatives when suitable alternatives are already present. Only the will to implement them is missing.

    • Duck says:

      AB
      OutLawing something is by definition restricting someones freedom…true it might be a freedom to do something evil like trick people out of money or commit incest…. what you are talking about is using law to stop others
      You can live with others without SOME kind of agreed on law or morality which necessitates punishment for transgression

      • AB says:

        But aren’t I essentially saying to outlaw laws? In other words, NOT having laws that prohibit choice as opposed to having laws that allow choice.

      The Rand Corperation advised on Start Trek, and the show pushed remarkably NWO polices right thru Next Generation (the money free resource based economy being a thing as soon as they could get the audience to accept such a thing)
      Look similar? Gene Roddenberry personally designed it for mail order (acc to wikipedia anyway)

      Wikipedia
      “….[161] Even a mention of marriage in a script for an early episode of The Next Generation resulted in Roddenberry’s chastising the writers.[131] Nicholas Meyer said that Star Trek had evolved “into sort of a secular parallel to the Catholic Mass”.[162] Roddenberry compared the franchise to his own philosophy by saying: “Understand that Star Trek is more than just my political philosophy, my racial philosophy, my overview on life and the human condition.”[163] He was awarded the 1991 Humanist Arts Award from the American Humanist Association.[164]…”

      It was a pretty good show as a kid, but lookng back I can see how it helped shape a generations thinking.

      roddenberry was once a member of The Ancient and Mystical Order Rosæ Crucis (AMORC), also calling itself the Rosicrucian Order, is a Rose-Croix Order which they claim has its origin in the Ancient Egyptian mystery schools.

      The Colour out of Space 🛸 Deep Space Nine
      The “Council of Nine” have been delivering curiously consistent messages through a succession of mediums to influential patrons with names like DuPont, Astor and Bronfman since the early 1950s, and nearly always in the shadow of military intelligence. Until his death in 1995 Puharich made his home in that shadow, researching shamanic pharmacology and electronic mind control.

      Initial contact was made during a sitting of Puharich’s CIA cut-out “Round Table Foundation” on New Year’s Eve, 1952, at precisely 9 p.m., when the entities disclosed themselves through the tranceivership of Dr DG Vinod as the “Nine Principles or Forces.”

      In the early 1970s, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was a regular at the sessions of channeller Phylis Schlemmer to whom the Nine had revealed themselves through the manifestation of a spirit guide called “Tom.” … It took 22 years, and Gene Roddenberry, for the Nine to reveal themselves as The Nine, the Great Ennead of ancient Egypt: Atum, Shu, Tefnut, Geb, Nut, Osiris, Isis, Set and Nepthys. Their message amounts to, We’re back, and now it’s personal. (How much the Nine may have influenced Roddenberry is unknown. His involvement began several years after the original Star Trek series was cancelled, but a character named Vinod pops up in an episode of Deep Space Nine entitled “Paradise.”)

        Where does the scam end and the secret society begin?

        One can be certain that where is money there’ll automatically be people trying to get some of it.

        However, the RCs – at least to me – seem to be a creation of a time when secret societies were all the rage: the 16./17. century.
        Perhaps comparable to the Illuminati of that time but with a bit more religious fervor.

        But nowadays?

        Personally, I see those clubs as more or less the same as the Freemasons: Mostly a means of connecting people (and thus giving them influence, jobs, information etc.) to the disadvantage of the regular folks. That is what is coming around for members – while they are (perhaps unknowingly) beeing steered/used by the ones calling the shots.
        What good is a secret society to you if you can’t profit from it?

        Of course members advocate the “humanitarian side” whenever possible and some donations certainly help with that.

      • Jed says:

        That’s quite a group, I’ve heard they’re the one’s who financed and designed the “Georgia Guide Stones.” I love Manly P. Hall’s “Secret Teaching of All Ages,” apparently he was in that order. As high and mysteriously mighty as they seem, they may be hiding in plain site. That symbol the fire departments wear is a rose like cross. Both the paid services like FDNY and the jolly-vollys — volunteer departments who are the backbone of local government around here, wear the same symbol. There’s nothing volunteer about them — they set their own budgets and vote them quietly into law school-board style. Agendas are set in private, like who will the department’s masses support in the local elections, it’s a sick-circle-cycle and it controls a lot. The volly ranks are swollen with police and paid fighters, as such they’re much venerated by the group who vote them into positions of authority, so they’re the ones setting the agendas. I’m gonna bet it’s much the same coast to coast, and maybe similar in other cultures/states.

    James does a fair job of explaining a couple of theological interpretations of the Millennium, even though I don’t think he considers himself particularly religious.

    As a Reformed Christian (an evil Calvinist), I found this quite amusing. Based on writings of Murray Rothbard, the Progressive Gospel is very much in the forefront of the transformation of the American State in the 19th century.

    It is my considered opinion that secular Progressivism and the Social Gospel worked hand in hand to bring us the Divine State. I don’t think earlier generations of Christians believed in the divinity of the State as fervently as their more modern brethren do. This was a definite break.

    As James White always says, theology matters.
