    The key driver of civil forfeiture awareness and litigation has come from the Institute for Justice, a non-profit libertarian public interest law firm in the United States:

    Every state in the US has their own civil forfeiture laws. To help states improve their law, IJ commissioned a team of experts to draft a model criminal forfeiture law that every state legislature could adopt completely or in parts.

    Kudos to Institute for Justice for its ground-breaking litigation initiatives that protect private property!

    First I have to say I almost wet myself laughing the way you skipped through the Co2 ‘greening’ story with such a comic nod and a wink. Failing of course to understand anything about the story nor refute the several other studies recently making the news that have nothing but confirmation that our coastal communities will face extreme pressures and near random catastrophic weather events will become more common. Wink Wink.

    I discovered ‘anarchism’ sometime around or within “the winter of discontent”. This just preceded Thatcher, and in part assured her reign.
    The Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedy’s, CRASS and more were selling out of as much vinyl as they could press with wee laddies like me forming nervous queues to get them first. I embraced it only like a little boy could and it informed my worldveiw ever since. Yet I still can’t see how Anarchy of any description I ever heard actually deals with the issues relating to many crucial and fundamental aspects of a functioning wider society. Which is why you really should make 100 podcasts on your agoranarcism. sic. I know I seem harsh but I say so with my tongue firmly in cheek, remembering when I thought it could work too. I will save you the trouble of trying by telling you you will only ending having to make 100 more for each only face the truth you still can’t explain how it would work. It would become a caveat factory in no time.
    Sorry it had to be me but someone had to tell you.

    Police forces across the nation are amongst the most criminal groups in society, and the larger the municipality the more corrupt, all the way up to the largest cities which are virtually 100% corrupt in that being a “clean cop” means not engaging directly in illegal abuses of power, but just looking the other way (which is in fact still technically illegal, and an almost impossible trap not to fall into as a rookie – and once you’re in…).

    One of the problems is unions. Unions should be good checks on the unbridled powers of especially large employers. Unfortunately, unions have always been under political attack, most of it under the public radar, and laws regulating unions always somehow manage to bolster up a political environment that ends up enhancing nefarious infiltration.

    When unions are infiltrated by organized crime, and organized crime units are controlled by corporatist enforcement systems including rogue elements of the CIA, you have a powerful network of social engineering.

    I rarely hear domestic policing compared to the kind of programs the CIA runs abroad. That is a huge oversight. One could simply say (not simplistically) that al Qaeda and ISIS are creations of the CIA. It is more complicated than that, but as a reductive statement that is not incorrect (it’s certainly more correct than what most news sources expect us to believe). Likewise, one could simply say that almost all organized crime networks that have any staying power are creations of “legit” law enforcement groups.

    I have heard on the street that Pat Lynch, president of the NYPD’s union, represents such corrupt forces. If you look at his record it doesn’t convince one otherwise. He has brought suit against the city for trying to curtail the Stop-&-Frisk policy targeting minorities (and also used conveniently against white activists as proof that it’s not always black people!).

    In this video he basically threatens the mayor and protestors-against-police-brutality:

    Again, there is valid structural analysis to the claim that the assassination of police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu of the NYPD was an MK Ultra hit designed to unify a growing contingent of minority officers who are increasingly resistant to the old racist standards. And it is a very effective way to convince minority officers that they are first members of the police force and need to be loyal to the “blue code” over anything else.

    Since so many details of the underworld of policing are structurally hidden in our top-heavy society, considering structural analysis like this, while obviously not definitive, is still a reasonable approach. (If it looks like a duck…one should at least concede it MIGHT be a duck.)
