  1. Very good.

    And if shows that when the Swiss chapter of the internartional establishment elite (oh yes there are “Gun Control” Progressives in Switzerland) says that the weapons in Switzerland are just military (as if that makes them totally different) THEY LIE.

    Sadly Switzerland is (like the rest of us) in for hard times – the Swiss Central Bank (which should never have been created a century ago) and the rest of the etablishment elite, have tied Swiss Franc to the Euro (they also destroyed the link with gold – when the new Swiss Consitution “we celebrate our diviersty, code for “the Progressive elite have taken control”, came in).

    And the Swiss government has made the fatal choice to stand behind the bankers (the financial section of the international elite – the oldest Swiss private bank tried to stand against them and was destroyed by international action, led by the American government).

    However, I have faith in the Swiss people – they will survive, they will rise again.

    I only wish I could honestly say that I believed that about us.

  2. People who allow themselves to be disarmed? Even the murder rate in the United Kingdom was very low.

    People who allow their country to lose its independence to the E.U. – even though not one shot was fired (it was not as if they had faught as hard they could and were trying to save the lives of their children).

    And if another treaty was signed with the accused Untied Nations (declaring XYZ wickedness – in the name of “human rights”) people might grumble – but they would do nothing.

    How can I have confidence in my fellow countrymen.

    Or in myself?

    For, after all, I am as gulity as anyone else.

    Perhaps more guilty – as I can not comfort myself that I believed the lies of the education system and the media (as I never did believe them – even when I was young).

    What to look for in a people?

    That they will reject the “international community” – and the pretentions of “international law”. And that will reject the lust for power of Plato’s children (the university crowd) at home.

    I believe (people will correct me if I am mistaken) that Switzerland, with its well off population, has one of the lowest rates of liberal arts graduates in the Western world.

  3. I fear that Paul’s pessimistic economic analysis may, once again, be right.

    Turning to the image, there are interesting statistics at http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_firearm-related_death_rate
    Switzerland’s rate was considerably higher than I expected.

  4. I notice that Chile is very low. Latin America is not a lump (as it is often treated) hispanics with differnent historical traditions are different. Cultural history – not “race” is what matters.

    As for Switzerland – it is not longer the hard core conservative country it was in the 1950s (where is?).

    The Social Democrats were let into the government in 1959 (they are still part of the government). Although small the Social Democrats have done their “best” to poison Swiss culture (as the Democrats did with GOVERNMENT POLICY in 1960s America – and to this day).

    People talk of the social revolution of the 1960s (and onwards) as if it was a natural thing (like an earthquake, or tidel wave, or plague) it was not.

    It was deliberatly created – by people who had been working to create such an attack on the cultural foundations of the West (such as the cultural institutions of church and family) for many decades before the 1960s (indeed it was even older than the Frankfurt School – after all the Fabians and the Bloomsbury set go back to the 19th century, and the followers of Rousseau and so on go back to the 18th century).

    In order to create a wonderful “new society” the old society must be MOCKED and undermined with deliberate government policies.

    However, destroying the old society will prove much less difficult than creating the wonderful new society.

    Indeed the wonderful new society is IMPOSSIBLE (quite impossible).

    This the left, inspite of their vast cleverness, have not understood.

    They still seek to cerate the wonderful new society – and all they will really create is a pile of ashes.

    However. cultural conservatives can not escape blame.

    Cultures do not just preserve themselves – they have to be actively defended, and by people who (contra Hayek) actually understand the culture and why it is good.

    Cultural conservatives basically “sold the pass” at the end of the 1950s – they gave up really FIGHTING BACK.

    Perhaps the true reason is they lost faith – they no longer believed in the principles of the culture themselves.

    After all such things as “natural law” (objective right and wrong) had been (quietly) mocked for many decades before the 1960s – even in “conservtive” circles.

    Faith in such things had to be maintained among the “ignorant rabble” – but “educated” people (including many “conservatives”) did not believe in them.

    If you do not believe (really believe) in something yourself (and only act “as if” it were true – because of various nice consequences) then you are going to do a bad job of defending it against attack.

    A bad job – because you have no real faith, you do not really BELIEVE in what you are entrusted to defend.

    So the forces of destruction, of blood and ashes, win.

    It is like dealing with a “libertarian” who does not really believe that humans are beings – i.e. that the can CHOOSE (really choose – make a real choice) between good and evil.

    Unless someone is a philosophical libertarian (i.e. they believe that humans are beings – agents capable of agency, of CHOICE) then their polticial libertarianism is trapped in a contradiction.

    It is worthless.

    Switzerlands gun death rate is high due to the inclusion of suicides.

    Paul Marks writes:

    Cultural history – not “race” is what matters.

    Oh, indeed, Paul. “Race” doesn’t “exist”, does “it”? Science has proved that. Your “windbaggery”, for example, is entirely due to culture. As is your deep commitment to Truth.

  7. I did not say “race does not exist” I said that it was cultural history, not race, that matters.

    For example, how do you explain the transformation of the American black community?

    In the late 1940s young black males had LOWER unemployment (and lower welfare rates) than young white males.

    As late as the 1950s most black families were strong, and there were many black owned small business enterprises. And on and on.

    What happened?

    Some sort of mass genetic mutation of black DNA?

    Or different GOVERNMENT POLICIES producing a fundemental CULTURAL CHANGE.

    That is THE TRUTH.

    And perhaps it you would stop hiding behind fake names (like the “windbag” you so clearly are) you will face the truth one day.

    Till then you can continue to worship the “superior white men” (such as Joe Stalin?) – and assume that black people such as Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams must be bad.

    Your use of a straw-man is a further example of your dishonesty. The destruction of the American black “community” (the word is a sure sign of windbaggery and left-wing politics) was caused, inter alia, by the loosening of the social controls imposed by a non-black group. Please read this slowly two or three or four times till it sinks in:

    “Genetics are crucially important in determining culture. This does not mean genetics accounts for 100% of culture or for 100% of historical change. When ducklings are under their mother’s supervision, they do not behave in the same way as they do when not under their mother’s supervision. This is not mean duckling DNA mutates in the absence of the mother. It means that the environment has changed. However, no change in duckling environment will result in swans developing from those ducklings.”

    And that is as far as I can go, thanks to laws imposed on the U.K. by people who may even share some genetic kinship with you, Mr Marks, committed member of the libertarian community that you are.

    • Voldemort – You are welcome to speak as you please about me. But do refrain from racial slurs against other commenters on this blog. All else aside, it might get David Davis and me into trouble.

  9. The Welfare State was pushed WHITE people. You stupid Nazi scumbag.

  10. Voldemort au Vent

    The Welfare State was pushed [by] WHITE people. You stupid Nazi scumbag.

    Precisely my point, Mr Marks (tho’ I’d quibble about “WHITE”). So either you didn’t read or you didn’t understand my little allegory about ducklings. Oh, and thanks for the hysterical abuse: further proof of your non-innate cultural nature. You don’t, by chance, have people in your family true who were communists, do you? You know, like those who lined people up and shot them in the Soviet Union as part of the struggle for Liberty, Equality and Justice? And tortured people in the same Sacred Cause?

  11. Fake name Nazi.

    Joe Stalin was not Jewish and neither was Mao – and nor was your hero Adolf Hitler. And Rousseau and co (from whom the ideas of Marxism really come) were not Jews either.

    However, the writings of Karl Marx on “the Jews” (the businessman is a “inwardly circumcised Jew”) would be very much to your taste (even when Karl Marx does not specifically mention Jews his attacks on “capitalists” are, as Paul Johnson points out, often taken WORD FOR WORD from the attacks of previous writers, such as Martin Luther

    Actually my father was a Communist – he beat up people like yourself when they invaded his area (the Battle of Cable of Street). However, he later found out what Communism actually was (just another form of collectivism – no better than the collectivism of the National Socialists) – and when the local Communists ordered him to attack an old ladies shop, he picked their conference table and hit them with it (they survived – but they did not trouble him again).

    My half brother is, or was (I am not sure if he is still alive), a Communist also.

    So you “score” there – members of my family have indeed been Communists.

    However (on the other hand) I am not a Nazi – and you clearly are. So I “score” on that point.

    Now go off an iron your black shirt.

    Otherwise you will be late for the parade.

    The “superior” people such as Hitler and Stalin will be there.

    But “inferior” people such as Thomas Sowell, Walter WIlliams, Star Parker, AlAlan West, Tim Scott (and on and on) are not invited.

  12. Some people of Jewish origin are always trying to “kill the Jew in themselves” – Karl Marx (with his taking of the, anti Jewish, words of Luther and others and using them in attacks on “the capitalists” – but also in attacking “Jews” directly) is not alone in this respect.

    Even today one of the leading funders of groups, de facto, working for the extermination of Israel (six million Jews and large numbers of Christians and moderate Muslims who would also be wiped out if “Islamism” wins) is a man by the name of George Soros.

    Mr Soros described the year he spent with the National Socialists looting the property of murdered Jews in Hungary as “the most happy of my life”.

    However, this “happy” year came to a sudden end when the Nazis discovered that young George was HIMSELF of Jewish origin – and he had to flee for his life.

    Some people believe it would be a bad thing if another six million Jews (plus large numbers of Christians, Druze and moderate Muslims) were exterminated.

    And some people do not believe it would be a bad thing.

    I wish I could believe that Mr Soros was in the former group.

    I could go on with a description of the activities of the most famous head of the Spanish Inquisition (and this gentleman’s own ethnic origins).

    But I am becomming depressed by this whole subject.

  13. Voldemort au Vent

    I haven’t read all your wittering. Those who do have my sympathy and best wishes for a psychologically healthier future.

    So you “score” there – members of my family have indeed been Communists.

    What a surprise.

    However (on the other hand) I am not a Nazi – and you clearly are. So I “score” on that point.

    Who sounds more like the psychologically disturbed totalitarian on this thread, Mr Marks? When the windbag next witters about his “libertarianism”, remember how quickly he resorted to hysterical abuse of someone who (as a nazi) believes in free speech, free enquiry and the decriminalization of all drugs. If Mr Marks got his hands on power, how long do you think people who disagreed with him would last?

    Read on for the answer to that:

    “It would, of course, be emotionally satisfying to cut Kevin Carson’s Black Flagger (Black Flaggers like Carson will side with the Red Flagger Marxists – indeed they already are and have for years) throat, or blow his head off with a bullet (although he would be more likely to do those things to me) – but it is the job of politics to AVOID THAT SITUATION.”
    (https://libertarianalliance.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/libertarian-self-marginalization/#comment-48626)

    The comment, I think all will agree, shows a most alarming degeneracy of character. I am shocked. It is not the job of politics to keep us from cutting the throats of those with whom we disagree. No one of good character is tempted even to fantasise about such things. The next time Paul boasts of his conversion to Christianity, or of his instinctive cultural conservatism, or in general of his spotless moral purity, I for one will remember the malevolent and dangerous beast I have seen behind the smiling mask.

  14. I note you still have not learned to read.

    I said that the purpose of politics (and so on) is to AVOID THAT SITUATION (to avoid combat – even with the totalitarian Maxists, Fascists and ANTI PROPERTY “anarchists”).

    I even put the words AVOID THAT SITUATION in capital letters – and you still do not get it.

    Even taken OUT CONTEXT those words should have reached you – but they did not, because you are stupid. Just plain stupid.

    You Nazis are as dumb as a box of rocks.

    “Master Race” that is going to exterminate all “blacks, browns and yellows” (by the way that is from H.G. Wells – did you know that your desire to gas “inferior” races was actually thought up by the Fabians?).

    If you are such a “Superman” who is going to exterminate all “inferior races”,…..

    WHY DO YOU NOT TYPE UNDER YOUR OWN NAME?

  15. Voldemort au Vent

    WHY DO YOU NOT TYPE UNDER YOUR OWN NAME?

    Because I do not want psychologically disturbed totalitarians like you to have the ability to cause me harm. Libertarians do not care about anonymity when opinions are being expressed: they welcome it in a police state like the UK. You, not being a libertarian, do care, because you want the “emotional satisfaction” of harming someone for disagreeing with you.

    And please, Mr Marks, put aside your hysterical shrieking about the opinions I share with Winston Churchill and countless other conservatives down many years (belief in the decriminalization of drugs aside).

    I said that the purpose of politics (and so on) is to AVOID THAT SITUATION (to avoid combat – even with the totalitarian Maxists, Fascists and ANTI PROPERTY “anarchists”).

    Mr Marks, witter, splutter and use capital letters all you like. Your psychology is plain as a pike-staff: “malevolent and dangerous”. I’d add: mendacious and deceitful too. But you have my thanks for, once again, offering me valuable insights into why the glorious pursuit of Liberty, Justice and Equality has so often turned into a bloodbath.

    “It would, of course, be emotionally satisfying to cut Kevin Carson’s Black Flagger (Black Flaggers like Carson will side with the Red Flagger Marxists – indeed they already are and have for years) throat, or blow his head off with a bullet (although he would be more likely to do those things to me) – but it is the job of politics to AVOID THAT SITUATION.”

    That “of course” is priceless.

  16. Dear Mr Fake Name.

    I did not start this exchage – the aggression was on your part (not mine).You are clearly one of those peopel who enjoys trying to do other people harm whilst hiding your own idenity. In Frace such such a person is called a “crow”.

    Your racial hatred (your utter contempt for black people AS A GROUP) is obvious from your comments. However, not all racists are also cowards – hiding themselves under fake names.

    All human beings experience fear (I do myself), however the coward is someone who gives in to their fear. Human beings do have free will (agency) if we make an effort of will we can overcome our fear.

    As for violence and the love of seeing an enemy destroyed – indeed OF COURSE all human beings have that instinct as well (just as we also have the instinct of fear). The point of the principle of JUSTICE (the nonaggression principle – private property rights of individuals and private organisations) is submit that instinct under the rules of just conduct. Something every man has to (if he wishes to be just) make an effort to do each day.

    I did not make human nature. But neither do I pretend that it is something other than what it is (which you do). Human beings should accept that what they are – and place their instincts under the principle of justice (by the use of their reason).

    It would be the height of hypocricy for me to claim that I would be upset at the end of the enemy (just as you would not be upset to hear of my death). That does not mean that I would cause such a death – indeed I actually have a moral duty to PREVENT the death of an enemy if I can, as long as they as they have not actually attacked me (or anyone else).

    The moral rules do not come from emotions (instincts). As humans are predators it is utterly absurd to seek the moral rules from emotions (instincts).The moral rules can only be found by reason.

    As you know, Kevin Carson rejoyces in violence himself – for example he celebrated the actions of the savage mobs in Egypt and actually called upon them to be MORE violent than they were (he even did this in a post on this very site). Not just more violent against the regime – but against large scale private property owners in general (classic rich-versus-poor “Occupy” movement thinking).

    The mob supporter did not even know the potential victims – he can have had nothing against these people as INDIVIDUALS, but he rejoyced in the thought of their suffereing and death. I certainly do not claim that this is an unnatural thing for a human being (on the contrary – it is only too natural). But what I do say is that people should submit their natural violence to the principle of justice.

    Do you disagree?

    Your Sincerely.

    Paul Marks.

  17. “Voldmort” – your comments on the other thread show the same total lack of understanding as your comments here.

    Your mixture of ignorance and cowardice is rather silly. Especially considering that you (not me) is the aggressor.

    I have never gone into a thread simply for the purpose of launching personal attacks upon you.
