The Unethical Foundations of Government

libertarian porcupine

Porcupine: A defensive animal that doesn't harm anyone who leaves it alone.

A humorous, or not-so-humorous look at the Ethics of Governmental Systems

Ethical propositions:

  • Theft is evil.
  • Murder is evil.
  • The initiation of violence is evil.

Tribalism:

Under special sets of weird and often incoherent Circumstances, such as Religious Prescriptions, or on Holidays, or upon specific Birthdays, almost anyone might be exempted from ethics.

Theocracy:

The will of God as directed by His most Holy Books, and interpreted by His Ordained Agents on Earth shall be exempted from ethics.

Monarchy:

The will of the King and his Lords, as handed down through Inheritance, and backed by Divine Right, shall be exempted from ethics. Read more »

Top 10 Issues of Male Inequality

Equalitarianism

Sexual Equality

One of my biggest interests is sexual inequality, and particularly discrimination and hatred of men, especially as relates to the lies of feminism. Accordingly, this is a list of what I view as the top ten issues of disparity for men in the USA (and the same issues apply in many modern, industrialized western nations).

10. Begin the work needed to address institutionalized misandry. While institutionalized misogyny has been of great concern, and people around the world have worked hard to combat it, almost nothing has been done to address misandry. Currently, I could point to various forms of institutionalized misandry…in essence, everything on this list could be an item on the list of institutionalized misandry.

9. Repeal VAWA, the sexist “Violence Against Women Act,” which ignores the hundreds of thousands of male victims, and unfairly paints men as an abuser class. Work to end the sexist discrimination of the “domestic violence” industry, which is frequently built upon feminist lies and disinformation…misandry. The VAWA is a giant piece of codified legal sexism, and should be gotten rid of or replaced with something that at least pretends to be egalitarian.

8. Ensure a safe workplace for men. While women-only and female-predominated workplaces have very high safety (based on job injury and fatality rates), men-only and male-predominated occupations have the highest injury and fatality rates of any occupations. More needs to be done to make “men’s work” more safe. Often it comes down to simple things like making oil drillers use slightly better hoses that cost the parent companies pennies on the dollar.

US Constitution – Bill of Rights Under Attack

trampled constitution

The Trampled Constitution

The first few amendments in the Constitution of the United States of America are known as the “Bill of Rights.”  Since the beginnings of the USA, these rights have repeatedly been attacked, limited, curtailed, and even completely revoked and then later restored by numerous government officials. This opinion piece details my interpretation of the current state of affairs with regards to the Bill of Rights and how those rights seem to presently be limited by government.

Amendment 1 – Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Today, the government routinely rounds citizens up into “free speech zones” during political events. They put these citizens into places where they will be less likely to be seen by the people they are protesting, and less likely to be seen by cameras. They put police all over the area, and prevent citizens from walking or moving outside of these zones, even if that prevents same citizens from accessing public transportation services and such.

Who is Oppressed?

If we examined a group of people, a subset of society, and discovered that the group shared the following characteristics, would you call that group “advantaged” or “disadvantaged”? Would you call this group the “oppressor” or the “oppressed”?

oppressionMembers of the group:

  • make up 85% of the homeless
  • are statistically most likely to perish from any one of the major illnesses that kill in the world
  • are substantially more likely to be charged with a crime, given exactly the same set of circumstances, when compared to the general populace
  • when charged with a crime, are substantially more likely to be convicted
  • when convicted of a crime, are substantially more likely to receive a stiffer sentence, and thousands of times more likely to receive the death penalty
  • once sentenced for a crime, are substantially less likely to receive early release
  • drop out of school far more frequently
  • commit suicide more frequently
  • go to college and graduate studies less frequently
  • make up 90% of the people who die in work-related injuries, and the overwhelming majority of those who do not die in work-related illness or injury
  • lose access to their children more frequently in divorce
  • get access to their homes less frequently in divorce
  • make up 90% or more of those working the most dirty and dangerous jobs of society
  • pay more of the taxes while simultaneously collecting less of the benefits
  • can be involuntarily conscripted into armed service
  • are more likely to die in war
  • are not protected against genital mutilation, while the rest of society is

Who is this group?

Is it African Americans?

Hispanics?

Some other minority?

Nope. It is men. Just ordinary men. Not of any particular race, religion or cultural history. Just men.
