The Individual Verses the State. Part 3
Gun Laws it has been a Confidence Trick.
This simple two-way analyses on people/firearm controls and it’s effects in the major countries of the English speaking world indicate that all these arbitrary firearm controls have failed to reduce violent crime. Subsequent to this, it suggests that in most area’s it could be responsible for the increase of violent crime. Disarming the people has not reduced criminal violence in any country examined here: not Great Britain, not Canada, and not Australia. In all cases, the means of community disarmament have been ineffective, expensive, and very annoying to the citizens who have lost there private property. In all instances, the method has necessitated establishing extravagant bureaucracies that propagate negative influences in public safety. Disarming the community passionately increases the distrust in the controlling bureaucracy that impose it, alienating the community and completely destroying their enthusiasm to comply with other legislation that may have sane objectives. The perception of resentment grows with the inhumanity of the restrictions and with the easily observed ineffectiveness of their consequence.
“Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervour, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so, How do I know? For this I have done, and I am Caesar” Julius Caesar.
One firearm in a civilians hands on each of those airliners on ‘911′ could have saved thousands of lives on that infamous day. When Israel has a spat of terrorist attack they respond by issuing another 60,000 hand gun licences, John Howard uses the the Bali Bombing to correctly explain to us that all Moslems are not terrorists but hypocritically attacks, blames and disarms every licenced Pistol shooter, depriving them of their legally owned property on the threat of prison, they of course must all be guilty, they all must be a threat because one un-licensed, non-English speaking, non- Australian, member of a pistol club killed two of his Chinese flat mates.
“The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues, and tends to permit uprising. Therefore, the heads of provinces, official agents, and deputies are ordered to collect all the weapons mentioned above and turn them over to the government.” Shogun Toyotomi Hideyoshi, August 29, 1558
Reason, forces us to ask why it is so necessary for all political party machines to disarm the populations of the western countries? The first answer and most powerful driver, is fear, they fear the armed individual, they fear even more the knowledge that those individuals can work cohesively together and historically for seven hundred years have not suffered servitude and slavery. The second minor answer is because, “They can, and do get away with it”.
Frederick Douglas, a Civil Rights Activist, said 1857“Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.’
In the 21st centuries so called western democracies, slavery, serfdom, servitude, oppression are words that seem far away, in our nation of supermarkets, welfare, subsidised drugs, free Television entertainment. Serfdom and oppression relate to the medieval times or Soviet Russia, or third world countries. Many cannot see that what these words are related to the disarmed individual. The first 20th century national firearm legislation, was introduced to the British parliament in 1903 due to the fear of a socialist revolution, then again in 1919 fearing the spread of Russia’s Communist revolution, then in the General Strike of 1926 that fear provoked more firearm legislation. It is driven by fear of losing control of the oppressed masses, you cannot make armed individuals queue to enter Gulag’s, or Concentration camps or the Cambodian killing fields.
Picture of Women being Shot
Up until the 14th century, wealth allowed armed horse cavalry, knights, Hi Tech supermen to dominated and oppress individuals for a thousand years. Infantry, peasants individuals, there only purpose was to feed and cloth their masters, they were easily replaced and were not even counted or named if they died in battle. From the end of the Greek hoplites period to the beginning of the English/ Welsh yeoman armed with the long bow, the trained few with prohibitively expensive high tech armour and horses dominated the individual serfs. Until warfare was revolutionised, the common man had no importance, and as an infamous Abbot said, when he was confronted and forced to negotiate by the revolting English peasants, “That they owned nothing legally but their bellies.” He was wrong, and within a few years of his quote, the impoverished man’s ability to manufacture and pull a 6ft, 120 pound pull long bow, which doubled the velocity of it’s predecessors, and its 36 inch, spinning, (due to fitting helixical goose feathered flights), steel tipped, greased arrow could transfix, the best armour the world could make, nailing the knight through the saddle and killing the horse. This changed the world. When at Agincourt, King Henry V and his “few” knights fought on foot, to protect his most valuable assets, the yeoman archers, of which 6,000, faced a French army of 60,000 and killed 10,000 knights, took thousands of prisoners and routed the rest, the individual with his individual weapon was once more of value. When armed citizens bowmen confronted the armoured knights their only recourse was flee to there castles.
The new low tech, (three common ingredients) of Gun powder being available to the common artisans the castle walls could be breached. Castles turned into manor houses and the individual was paid for his labour and owned his cottage or his farm, the Statute of Winchester recognised the individuals right to keep his arms, bow or firearm ready to defend his family, home and country.
For hundreds of years, our rights and liberties have been guarded by brave men and women and enshrined in Constitutional documents, but night has fallen on freedom, there is no respect for our lives or our property our nationhood has been devoured, our western civilization has been burnt at the stake of multi-racialism. The inability of the individual to oppose or influence the new weapons, nuclear, vision from space, bacterial/nerve warfare, world communication has made him surplus to requirements, obsolete. Hi-tech expensive weapons systems, do not need large armies drawn from a large population base. The individual people who were the cannon fodder are obsolete and have been replaced by elitist technicians specially selected for there subservience to government.
In 1923 Prime Minister Benito Mussolini, said,
“The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.”
Today, we have returned passively to feudalism, we are irrelevant, we are hunted, we are oppressed. They do not use the same words but that quote from the Abbott “That they owned nothing legally but their bellies”, is how we are considered. We are only required as consumers for the multi-nationalist markets, they do not need us to even till the fields and make there clothes, they have the robotic age, they have destroyed national trade barriers, used immigration as a mobile cheap labour force, if we are lucky all will be forced to work for the worlds lowest common denominator. That denominator will continually reduce as people and populations are made surplus to requirement. Disease, war and starvation is our future. Look at the educational standards, children are not being encouraged to read, why should they, they have no value as readers, they will be more submissive as television watchers. They are more submissive, if they are addicted to drugs, one being the television, or suffering withdrawal from coke cola, coffee, prescription drugs, panadine, alcohol, or dope. Dresden James, said
`The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self-administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawarely enslave themselves.’
Our freehold titles are meaningless trinkets that last as long as you can pay the rates, or fight off native title or the controlling bureaucrat who takes it from you to save the trees or the rare frogs. They hunt us for our, private property, our firearms, if you think you really own car why do you pay, every year to keep it. ? They hunt you on the roads, the speeding camera’s only purpose is to raise funds to keep more bloodsucking parasites in a job. Put a fishing line in a creek, without a licence, they want you to buy the rain that falls on your land, you are hunted off road side reserves, you have to camp in there reserve, under there control. You can be in the middle of the desert, at Coopers Creek, where Burke and Wills perished and there will still be a sign saying ‘no camping, no camp fires, no dogs, no vehicle entry, no people entry. Your only function is to consume and pay tax. Voting is a mockery, Tweedledee or Tweedledum, the ones that manufacture the money rule the world not the politicians.
“The more laws that are written, the more criminals are produced.’
said Lao-Tse, Tao Te Ching
Principles teach us that there is no legal process which oppresses innocent men. The only power any moral government has is to protect people from external and internal criminals. Governments have to be seen to achieve so they manufacture criminals. It declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws. Harassing, dividing, distressing it is a deceptive tool which takes significance away and blinkers the realism of suppression. A Roman historian said, “The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.’
Nothing distinguishes more clearly conditions in a free country from those in a country under despotic government than the observance of the great principle known as the “Rule of Law” (meaning Reign of Law) that means that government in all its actions is bound by rules fixed beforehand. While every law restricts individual freedom to some extent , under the Rule of Law the government is prevented from stultifying individual efforts by ad hoc action. The individual should be free to pursue his personal ends knowing that government will not be used to deliberately frustrate his efforts.
The exclusive reason why men unite in a commonwealth and place themselves within a governments and away from the freedom of nature is the preservation and use of their property which in the free state of nature is uncertain. Certainty of the standards of right and wrong and a common measure to decide all controversies has to be the only intention of government. Men only enter into society for the enjoyment of their property.
Society cannot continue to exist if its government captures and controls the lives or properties of its citizens, Government is limited to the protection and preservation of that property it has no other end and can never have the right to enslave or impoverish its subjects. John Locke, in his 2nd Treatises of Civil Government, 1698 says,
Whenever the legislators endeavours to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence.”
When the first man discovered how to make fire. More than likely he was burned at the stake with the fire he had taught his kinsmen to light. He like, present day shooting enthusiasts would be considered an evildoer who had developed a demon that mankind dreaded. Afterwards though men had fire to keep them warm, to cook their food, to light their caves. He had left them a gift they had not conceived and he had lifted darkness off the face of the earth. When the first man invented the wheel. He was probably torn on the rack he had taught his neighbours to build. But thereafter, men could travel past any horizon. He had left them a gift they had not conceived and he had opened the roads of the world. Individuals today are oppressed, materials are forbidden, knowledge restricted, what gifts, to the world, will be lost forever? Albert Einstein, said
“Only two things are infinite; the universe and human stupidity, and I am not sure about the former.”
Individuals are always the first heros, standing alone in the opening chapters of every legend. Prometheus was chained to a rock and torn, by vultures because he had stolen the fire of the gods. Adam was condemned to suffer because he had eaten the fruit of the tree of knowledge. Mankind knew that its glory had began with one mans sacrifice and that one man had paid the price for his courage.
Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. Their goals differed, but they all had this in common: that the step was first, the road new, the vision un borrowed, and the response they received – hatred. Galileo Galilei said,
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.’
The great visionaries, Christopher Columbus, engineer Michelangelo, the thinkers, Socrates, the artists, Vincent Van Gogh, the scientists, Louis Pasteur, the inventor, Galileo all stood alone against the men of their time. Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced. The first engine was considered absurd. The first aircraft was considered impossible. The power loom was considered vicious. Anaesthesia was considered sinful. But the men of un borrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won.None of the above individuals desired to serve his fellow man, as they always reject the gift he offered because that gift, always destroyed the indolent habit of their lives. His truth was his only motive. His own truth, and his own work to achieve it in his own way. A symphony, a book, an engine, a philosophy, an aircraft or a building that was his goal and his life. The invention was the goal, not its users. The creation, not the benefits others derived from it.
The individuals vision, his strength, his courage came from his own spirit. That entity which is his own consciousness that is what influences how he thinks, feels, judges, acts. It is the whole secret of their power that it was self-sufficient, self-motivated, self-generated. Only by living their own idea, is he able to achieve the things which are the glory of mankind. This is the nature of human achievement.
Man cannot survive except through his mind. He comes on earth unarmed. His brain is his only weapon. Animals obtain food by force. Man has no claws, no fangs, no horns, no great strength of muscle. He must manufacture his food or hunt for it. To hunt, he needs weapons, to survive he needs weapons, and to manufacture weapons a process of thought is needed. Without that ability to manufacture weapons the human race would be extinct, remove that ability and its future extinction is assured. From this simplest necessity to the highest religious philosophy, from the wheel to the skyscraper; everything we are and everything we have comes from is a single attribute of man, the function of his reasoning mind.
The mind is an attribute of the individual. There is no such thing as a collective brain. There is no such thing as a true collective or a socialist thought. An agreement reached by a group of men is only a compromise or an average drawn upon many individual thoughts. It is a secondary consequence. The primary act the process of reason must be performed by each man alone. We can divide a meal among many men. We cannot digest it in a collective stomach. No man can use his lungs to breathe for another man. No man can use his brain to think for another. All the functions of body and mind are individual. They cannot be shared or transferred.
We inherit the products of the thought of other men. We inherited the wheel. We make a cart. The cart becomes a motor car. The motor car becomes a jet aircraft. All through the process what we receive from others is only the end product of their thinking. The moving force is the creative faculty which takes this product as material, uses it and originates it to the next step. This creative faculty cannot be given or received, shared or borrowed. It belongs to single, individual. The product of that originator is the property of that individual. Men learn from one another. But all learning is only the exchange of pre-invented material.
No man can give another the capacity to think. Yet that capacity is our only means of survival. No parliamentary restrictive legislation can change the capacity of the human mind to think or not to think. It can and succeeds to a large degree to suppress the inter-exchange of information. It can manipulate and ‘dumb down’ the general population. Education is far more productive than legislation as the exchange of material advances human progress and in recent times legislation moves to restricts it.
Nothing is given to man on earth except that brain power. Everything he needs has to be produced. And here man faces his basic alternative: he can survive in only one of two ways by the independent work of his own mind or as a parasite fed by the minds and efforts of others. The creator originates, produces and supplies, he is the farmer, the engineer, the machinists, the carpenter, the service supplier who creates his own business, the fisherman, the individual self motivator. The leech uses and abuses, he is the social worker, the politicians, the benevolent bureaucrat, the media reporter, the parking metre man, the person that gives you the on the spot fine for listening to the radio at work. The producer saws his tree down and makes a chair, the leech fines him for cutting his own tree down.
The producer faces the world alone. The leech faces the world through many intermediaries. The producer’s concern is the conquest of nature. The parasite’s concern is the conquest of men. The producer lives for his work. He needs no other men. His primary goal is within his own potential. The leech lives second-hand. He is desperate for others. Others are his prime motivation.
The basic need of the producer is his own independence, the freedom to follow his own ideas. The reasoning mind cannot work under any form of compulsion. It cannot be curbed, sacrificed or subordinated to any consideration whatsoever. It demands total independence in function and in motive. To a producer, all relations with men are secondary. The basic need of the leech is to secure his ties with men in order to be fed. He places relationships first. He declares that man exists in order to serve others. He preaches unremitting benevolence. Plutarch, said, `The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among
them bounties, donations and benefits.’
Benevolence is the belief which demands that men live for others and place others before himself. No man can live for others. He can share a meal but not his mind or his body. But the leech has used benevolence as a weapon of exploitation and reversed the base of mankind’s moral principles. Men have been taught every premise that exterminates the individual producer. Men have been taught dependence is a quality. The tax gathers who live from others are dependent. They are parasitical in motive and makes parasites of those he distributes to. His relationships with people produces nothing but mutual corruption. Sir Winston Churchill, said
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.’
We have an ever increasing growth on our backs, the growth industry of the early 21st century is social welfare dictatorship, the politician who can embezzle the most from the minority, small business producers and apportion the maximum to the freeloaders never has to fear the ballot box. Politicians breed tax gathers and licence purveyors.
Our children have been taught that the highest virtue is not to achieve, but to give, contributing to the Common Good . Yet one cannot give that which has not yet been produced. Production has to come before distribution or there will be nothing to distribute. The need of the producer comes before the need of any possible beneficiary. Yet we are taught to admire the freeloader politicians who dispenses gifts he has not produced above the man who made the gifts possible. We praise an act of charity We ignore an act of achievement. Adolph Hitler, said
“What luck for rulers, that men do not think.”
Our children have been taught that it is a virtue to agree with others. The originator is the man who disagrees. People have been taught that it is a virtue to swim with the current. The originator/producer is the man who goes against the current. People have been taught that it is a virtue to stand together. The producer is the man who stands alone.
Our children are taught that individuality is the birthplace of evil, and contribution is the ideal of virtue. This basic reversal is the most deadly. The issue has been perverted and deceived, we been made to believe there are only two boxes, two alternatives as examples of good and evil, Individuality or Benevolence. Individuality was held to mean the sacrifice of others to oneself. Benevolence the sacrifice of self to others. This enslaved mankind irrevocably to other men and left him nothing except the idea to serve the socialistic state. This was the final device perpetrated on mankind. This was the contrivance by which dependence (Socialism) and suffering were perpetuated as fundamentals of human existence.
The choice is not self-sacrifice or domination. The choice is the code of the producer, or the code of the leech. This is the basic issue. It rests upon the alternative of life or death. The code of the producer is built on the needs of the reasoning mind which allows man to survive. The code. of the parasite is built on the needs of a mind incapable of self survival. All that which proceeds from man’s independent individuality is good. All that which proceeds from man’s dependence upon men is depravity. J Kahn said,
You can’t pay people for doing nothing without forcing others to do something for nothing.’
The individualist in the absolute sense is not the man who sacrifices others. He is the man who stands above the need of using others in any manner. He does not function through them. He is not concerned with then in any primary matter. Not in his aim, not in his motive, not in his thinking, not in his desires; not in the source of his energy. He does not exist for any other man and asks no other man to exist for him. This is the only form of brotherhood and mutual respect possible between men. Degrees of ability vary, but the basic principle remains the same the degree of a man’s independence, initiative and personal love for his work determines his talent as a worker and his worth as a man. Independence is the only gauge of human virtue and value. What a man is and makes of himself is important, not what he has or hasn’t done for others. There is no substitute for personal dignity. There is no standard of personal dignity except independence.
In all proper relationships there is no sacrifice of anyone to anyone. Why should we sacrifice our firearms and ammunition to the false perception of “Common Good”?
Men should exchange their work by free, mutual consent to mutual advantage when their personal interests agree and they both desire the exchange. This is the only possible form of relationship between equals. Anything else is a relation of slave to master, or victim to executioner. To force the individual to assist the Government in its suppression of free business activity, to spy on their customers, record their purchases, against their own free will, is accurately described as slavery. Richard J. Maybury said,
`Governments do not collect taxes to provide services, they provide services as an excuse to collect taxes.’
Every producers creation is achieved under the guidance of a single individual thought. A designer requires a great many men to produce his firearm. He never asks them to vote on his design. They work together by free agreement and each is free in his proper function. A builder uses steel, glass, concrete, produced by others. What he does with them is his individual product and his individual characteristic. This is the only pattern for proper co-operation among men.
Man’s first duty is to himself. His moral law is never to place his prime ambition within the precinct of others. His moral obligation is to do what he wishes, provided his wish does not ill use, other men. This includes the whole realm of his creative faculty, his thinking, his work. This philosophy of course is totally abhorrent to the benevolent bureaucrat, the socialist and the dictator
A man thinks and works. alone. A man cannot rob, exploit or rule alone. Robbery, exploitation and ruling presupposes victims. They imply dependence. They are the. province of the leech. Rulers of men are not individuals. Oppressors create nothing. They exist entirely through the persons of others. The Oppressors are the leeches, their goal is to feed off their subjects, their goal is the activity of enslaving. They are just as dependent as the beggar, the tax collector and the bandit. The form of dependence does not matter.
Our children are taught the lie, to regard politicians tyrants, oppressors as exponents of individualism but tyrants create or produce nothing. These frauds have caused communities to destroy the individualist, without realising the individualist was themselves.
From the beginning of history, the two antagonists have stood face to face: the producer individualist and the collectivist parasite. When the first producer invented the wheel, the first parasite responded. He invented benevolence.
The producer was denied, opposed, persecuted, exploited, went on, moved forward and carried all humanity along on his energy. The bureaucrat contributed nothing to the process except the impediments. The contest in all issues is the individual against the collective State.
The “common good” or “public safety” of a collective, a race, a class, a State was the claim and justification of every tyranny ever established over men. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of a benevolent motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equalled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of benevolence? Does the fault lie in men’s hypocrisy or in the nature of the principle? The most dreadful butchers were the most benevolently sincere. They believed in the perfect society reached through the guillotine and the firing squad. Nobody questioned their right to murder since they were murdering for “the common good. They accepted that man must be sacrificed for other men. The performers change, but the formula of the tragedy remains the same. The humanitarians start with declarations of love for mankind but always end with a sea of blood. As long as they sanction the benevolent bureaucrat to officiate and force the victims to endure it.
Our leaders of this collectivist socialist bureaucracy supposedly ask nothing for themselves. But observe the results. They take everything from the producers. The only good which men can do to one another and the only statement of their proper relationship is “Leave Us Alone” !
Our Country was Built on the Principles of Individualism the individualist pioneer came and carved out a nation from the wilderness, they risked there lives and fortunes. This country of unparalleled achievements, supreme prosperity, optimum freedom. This nation was not established by a benevolent public service, or sacrifice, or surrender or any premise of bureaucracy. It was based on a man’s right to the quest for happiness. His own happiness. Not anyone else’s. A private, personal, motive. Look at the results. Look into your own conscience, do you want anything different?
Civilisation is the advance towards a private society, away from tribalism.
It is an old conflict. Men have come close to the truth many times, but it was destroyed each time and one civilization fell after another. Civilization is the advance toward a society of privacy for the individual. The tribal savage’s whole existence is public, dominated by the laws of his tribe. Civilization was the process of setting man free from other men.
At this present time, in our age of collectivism, the law of the benevolent bureaucrat, the ancient monstrosity has broken loose and is running amuck. It has brought once free men to a level of intellectual indecency never equalled on earth. It has reached a scale of horror without precedent. It has poisoned every mind. It has swallowed most of the world and is engulfing our country.
I am an engineer. I know what is to come by the principle on which way it is being assembled. We are approaching a situation in Australia where thinking men have to decide whether they are going to allow themselves to be drowned slowly in a sticky quagmire of stinking bureaucracy or are they going to choose to remove themselves, sit back and watch our country go under, like a sinking ship, sad but beautiful to the last, taking down good people, but observe the parasites, the benevolent bureaucrats clinging to the decks longing to find another host to suck life from.
If the people can see a real need they will support change and movement, when they see hypocrisy and deception they suffer under it and ignore it, rebel against it and when civilization falls into collective tribalism, rebel against that again and rebuild it. When people lose what used to be a nation of free men, they will always try again, the outshining principle is a policy of freedom for the individual, not power for the State.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better
