• Conspiracy Theory: Government and Central Banking lies about Bitcoin - CEO of JPMorgan and Director of the Federal Reserve Jamie Dimon commits fraud



    Recently, CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Jamie Dimon went on CNBC calling Bitcoin a "fraud" where he would "fire in a second" any JPMorgan trader trading in Bitcoin because it is against their "rules." Even though his daughter bought into Bitcoin and JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been caught trading in Bitcoin. Dimon's sentiment has been echoed by many central banks, mainstream media, and those connected to them in the government. Evidence is showing that Dimon is only projecting and is, in turn, frauding everyone who looks to him for guidance (appeal to authority). Below I provide evidence in support of the conspiracy theory that the banking elites run the government and control your lives.

     


    What is a conspiracy theory?It is the point of view that a group is plotting something sinister using direct movements and actions to control what is being seen, like in the sense of theater.

    • conspiracy (n.) mid-14c., from Anglo-French conspiracie, Old French conspiracie "conspiracy, plot," from Latin conspirationem (nominative conspiratio) "agreement, union, unanimity," noun of action from conspirare (see conspire).
    • conspire (v.) late 14c., from Old French conspirer (14c.), from Latin conspirare "to agree, unite, plot," literally "to breathe together," from com "with, together" (see com-) + spirare "to breathe" (see spirit (n.)).
    • theory(n.) 1590s, "conception, mental scheme," from Late Latin theoria (Jerome), from Greek theoria "contemplation, speculation; a looking at, viewing; a sight, show, spectacle, things looked at," from theorein "to consider, speculate, look at," from theoros "spectator," from thea "a view" (see theater) + horan "to see," which is possibly from PIE root *wer- (3) "to perceive."

     

    The idea that a conspiracy theory is some negative crack pot title is grossly fraudulent. Since the times of the Magna Carta and the creation of the Declaration of Independence conspiracy theories were viewedin a positive manner. In 1967, the CIA coined"conspiracy theory" in a negative light as a way to discredit any theories outside of the "official" story. The CIA wrotea dispatch that provided high level instructions for the stopping and discrediting of such conspiracy theories.

    • "Countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists"
    • "Employ propaganda assets to and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose."
    • "Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories." (this happened during 9/11 which discredited any factual evidence that came out)
    • "In private to media discussions not directed at any particular writer, or in attacking publications which may be yet forthcoming, the following arguments should be useful:"
      • "No significant new evidence has emerged"
      • "[Critics] tend to place more emphasis on the recollections of individual witnesses" (to discredit eye witnesses)
      • "Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States"



    Root definition - Objective truth

    • fraud (n.) from Latin fraudem (nominative fraus) "a cheating, deceit," of persons "a cheater, deceiver." Not in Watkins; perhaps ultimately from PIE *dhreugh- "to deceive" (source also of Sanskrit dhruti- "deception; error"). Meaning "a fraudulent production, something intended to deceive" is from 1650s. The meaning "impostor, deceiver, pretender; humbug" is attested from 1850.
    • government(n.) late 14c., "act of governing or ruling;" 1550s, "system by which a thing is governed" (especially a state), from Old French governement "control, direction, administration" (Modern French gouvernement), from governer "to govern" (see govern).

     

    Google Definition - Subjective

    • fraud (n.) wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.(notice they added criminal to the definition, which the government controls what is considered "criminal")
    • government(n.) the governing body of a nation, state, or community. The action or manner of controlling or regulating a nation, organization, or people.


    Who is Jamie Dimon? He is the current CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and a Board of Director for the Federal Reserve of New York, and is worth close to a billion dollars. Some might consider his position with the Federal Reserve as a conflict of interest since the Federal Reserve "regulates" all central banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. The hypocrisies being pushed by Dimon and those like him are endless.


    What is the Federal Reserve? It is not a government agency, yet they control our entire monetary supply and system.

    • "The Federal Reserve Banks are not a part of the federal government, but they exist because of an act of Congress. Their purpose is to serve the public. So is the Fed private or public? The answer is both. While the Board of Governors is an independent government agency, the Federal Reserve Banks are set up like private corporations. Member banks hold stock in the Federal Reserve Banks and earn dividends. Holding this stock does not carry with it the control and financial interest given to holders of common stock in for-profit organizations. The stock may not be sold or pledged as collateral for loans. Member banks also appoint six of the nine members of each Bank's board of directors."
    • In John L. Lewis, Plaintiff/appellant, V. United States of America, Defendant/appelle, 680 F.2d 1239 (9th Cir. 1982):
      • "Each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate corporation owned by commercial banks in its region. The stockholding commercial banks elect two thirds of each Bank's nine member board of directors. The remaining three directors are appointed by the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal Reserve Board regulates the Reserve Banks, but direct supervision and control of each Bank is exercised by its board of directors."
      • "It is evident from the legislative history of the Federal Reserve Act that Congress did not intend to give the federal government direction over the daily operation of the Reserve Banks: It is proposed that the Government shall retain sufficient power over the reserve banks to enable it to exercise a direct authority when necessary to do so, but that it shall in no way attempt to carry on through its own mechanism the routine operations and banking which require detailed knowledge of local and individual credit and which determine the funds of the community in any given instance. In other words, the reserve-bank plan retains to the Government power over the exercise of the broader banking functions, while it leaves to individuals and privately owned institutions the actual direction of routine."
      • "Additionally, Reserve Banks, as privately owned entities, receive no appropriated funds from Congress."
      • "The Reserve Banks are deemed to be federal instrumentalities for purposes of immunity from state taxation."(taxation is theft [my first and secondarticle on taxation] though so we should all enjoy this exception)

     

    The Federal Reserve was created on December 23, 1913 by the Federal Reserve Act after the Panic of 1907 when faith in trust companies failed, manly the Knickerbocker Trust Company. J. P. Morgan "saved" the day when he bailed out the industry using his own money, while convincing other bankers to do the same. The Panic of 1907 was influencedby the New York Times who pushed Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) as speculation started to rise over a potential scandal when the then-president of the Knickerbocker Trust Company, Charles T. Barney, tried to corner the copper stock market, leading to a bank run when the scheme failed and the stock plummeted. Within a couple of weeks after the Panic of 1907 Charles T. Barney committed suicide by a gunshot wound to the stomach. It was reported that Charles T. Barney was despondent over the fact that JP Morgan refused to meet with him. Sounds more like a Clinton suicide moment.

     

    Frederick G. Eldridge, who chartered the Knickerbocker Trust Company in 1884, was a friend and classmate of J. P. Morgan. In 1896, J. P. Morgan provided Adolph Simon Ochs, who owned the Chattanooga Times, the financing to secure the purchase of the struggling New York Times which provided J. P. Morgan influence over the stories published in their papers. This push and influence caused the bank run leading to the industry (really only New York) needing to be "saved." Sounds like a broken window fallacy, no?

     

    The next year following the Panic of 1907, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., established and led the commission looking into the panic and proposed the solution of creating the Federal Reserve System. Rockefeller, Sr., was 7th cousins to J. P. Morgan and in 1901 J. P. Morgan offeredRockefeller, Sr. close to $90 million in a deal for ore among other business dealings.

     

    On top of this, shortly after J. P. Morgan "saved" the day a broker firm, Moore & Schley, who had secured huge loans against $6 million worth of Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railroad Company (TCI) shares had the loans called by the banks to cover the banking runs that hit the market. This caused another issue since Moore & Schley were one of several broker firms in massive debt, Moore & Schley sitting at $25 million in debt. J. P. Morgan jumpedat this chance and browbeat the other bankers (rumored he locked them in a room) until they agreed to help put up the money to cover the firm's debt with the additional resource of government funds (taxes). The plan worked and J. P. Morgan was able to help bail out the broker firm and secure the acquisition of TCI. TCI was the direct southern competitor of U.S. Steel, which J. P. Morgan owned. Furthermore, TCI had the largest use of prison laborers (most were black) who were convicted of victimless or petty crimes and forced to pay off their fines though hard labor (this is still happening today). The number of convicts "employed" by U.S. Steel grew rapidly after it acquired TCI. J. P. Morgan is a humanitarian and philanthropist, right?

     

    John Godfrey Moore, co-owner of Moore & Schley and had controlling interest in Chase National Bank, gained fame in 1893 for successfully suing the U.S. government to stop the Income Tax Act from becoming reality, at least until 1913. Moore had close business dealings with Rockefeller Sr. and J. P. Morgan. Moore died suddenly in 1899 and was a member of the Jekyll Island Club, as was J. P. Morgan and Rockefeller, Sr.

     

    Now, to me this lays out a scheme by several individuals to corner a market while one who knew about the plan plotted against the rest securing considerable power and resources for the future. J. P. Morgan used his position to take out a financial market that directly stood against his bank, trust companies were increasing by 3.5 times the rate compared to other central banks. On top of this J. P. Morgan was able to secure and corner the steel market leading to a monopoly.  J. P. Morgan wasn't done though, using this panic and resulting crisis he continued to push for greater banking and financial regulations. These regulations came to a point by the end of 1913. J. P. Morgan would not live to see his goal realized.

     

    What a year 1913 was... sad year for freedom. This was the year that we were graced with income tax and the Federal Reserve. Banks began to provide trust departments to help manage funds and community foundations grew out of the regulations and restrictions placed upon trust companies by the government. Community foundations are a public versions of trust companies. Senator Nelson Aldrich was a main push behind the Federal Reserve Act and the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment which allowed for the start of income tax. Senator Aldrich's daughter, Abigail, married into the Rockefeller family in 1901. Senator Aldrich metwith Henry Davison, a senior partner at J. P. Morgan & Co., and others at Jekyll Island in November 1910 to discuss the creation of the Federal Reserve System, a centralized institution that would control the entire country's monetary supply.

     

     

    Did I mention that taxation is theft? It is. Promise. Even if these banks waste money and run their business into the ground they are viewed as "too big to fail" and those in the government will come to their aid using your hard earned money which is why the central banks needed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. $700 billion in stolen money went to these central bankers to help fix the mess they put the economy into and they threw parties to celebrate. Do you really feel that you are in control of your life? Do you really believe that the banking elite have your best interests at heart? Do you really think their mentality has changed any since time of J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller, Sr.? If so, what evidence do you see that things have changed? The government controls you, and the central banks and the private business that is the Federal Reserve controls the government.

     


    Like Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild, founder of the International Banking House of Rothschild, said:

    Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.


     

     

    Now, as with trust companies, a group of individuals, one being CEO Jamie Dimon, are starting to target cryptocurrencies in a sinister manner using direct movements and actions to control what is being seen. CEO Jamie Dimon has committed fraud in his push to attack cryptocurrencies. This is how it starts, using FUD before a "crisis" happens which will "require" the government to step in and regulate what you do with your property, your product of labor, your capital. You must keep yourself aware of these tactics that are geared to manipulate and control you. You have no control over the Federal Government. Everything is handed to you with the illusion of choice and freedom. So much of what happened over a 100 years ago still directly affects you daily. You are being stolen from constantly to fund foreign wars which didn't exist until the Federal Reserve and income tax. You are being manipulated by mainstream media who are controlled by the government and banking elite.

     

     

    Do you still think conspiracy theorists are crazy nut jobs? At what point is the evidence good enough for you to wake up to the slavery that exists today?

  • Taxation is theft, by definition

     

     


    Rhetoric (TLDR): Taxation is theft. A tax was originally an additional charge of handling property (like a service fee) but taxation quickly became obligatory contributions paid to governments and churches, obligatory through force. The difference between the two meanings is voluntary vs obligatory. Free people can voluntarily choose what to do with their product of labor, their property, their capital, while slaves are forced to hand it over to their masters.


     

    Did you know that Taxation Is Theft? It is, by definition. The very first article I ever wrote was a seven-pager on Why Taxation Is Theft. That article focuses more on examples on why Taxation Is Theft, lightly going over the definitions of the words, and options for moving away from taxation. It has been some time since I have addressed Taxation Is Theft and recently it has become a hot topic discussion, so I figured I should once again write about how Taxation Is Theft using the Trivium Method of Critical Thinking: Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric in order. If you are unsure what the Trivium is or the concept please go research it, it is a life changer that is no longer taught to society.

     

    Using only modern definitions of words is a subjective process due to everyone wanting to add their own twist. There is a problem with this process though, without objective truths, and the understanding of definitions, communication begins degrade quickly. When someone adds something to a definition of a word that you don’t agree with, how can you reach the same conclusion and rhetoric that they have without agreeing to the definition being used? This is why definitions need to be agreed upon before Logic can be debated.

     


    Example: How often do you hear liberal being used as a negative term? How often is liberal used negatively without the sense of irony with it?

    Root definition Liberal- directly from Latin liberalis "noble, gracious, munificent, generous," literally "of freedom, pertaining to or befitting a free person," from liber "free, unrestricted, unimpeded; unbridled, unchecked, licentious."

    Modern Google definitions –

    • “open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.”
    • “favorable to or respectful of individual rights and freedoms.”
    • “(in a political context) favoring maximum individual liberty in political and social reform.”
    • “regarding many traditional beliefs as dispensable, invalidated by modern thought, or liable to change.”
    • “(of education) concerned mainly with broadening a person's general knowledge and experience, rather than with technical or professional training.”
    • “(especially of an interpretation of a law) broadly construed or understood; not strictly literal or exact.”
    • “given, used, or occurring in generous amounts.”
    • “(of a person) giving generously.”

    Do you agree with all of the modern definitions of liberal? Do you think the left are liberals? You cannot be liberal with others’ property.


     

    I tend to stay away from modern subjective definitions. These definitions usually have twists that alter the meaning of the word, so I focus on the root etymology of the words. This should always be your starting point when determining a definition to a word. Root definitions are objective truths, that is how the word started out and it sets the theme of the word for future use. Now, words can evolve to mean something completely different but words should never alter slightly meaning the opposite or something close to it. That is sophistry and is unacceptable, unless being used in an ironic way (see patriot).

     

     

    Sophists have convoluted communication between us all by taking away the meaning and understanding of many commonly used words and terminology, which allows them to twist language into a rhetoric that suits their needs and goals. They are not here to tell you the truth. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were vehemently against sophists since they deliberately used “fallacious reasoning, intellectual charlatanism and moral unscrupulousness,” subjectivism, to influence those they taught for a high price. These are not good people. They lie for gain to cloud the truth so their rhetoric is “correct.”

     

    Google uses its own database to store definitions. Google is a publicly traded business heavily influenced by the governments around the world. It is a logical fallacy to go with Google definitions if it has not kept the same theme as the root definition. Take terrorismand patriotismfor example, most use the words incorrectly which clouds the meaning of the word making a truthful rhetoric harder to obtain. This confusion causes disagreements and strife between everyone while reducing the judgement and critical thinking ability of each individual and society as a whole. Confusion and a breakdown in the ability to think critically makes people and society easier to control, I mean govern.

     


    Example: Using modern definitions of the words Taxation Is Theft:

     


     

    Now as I have stated previously, subjective definitions can be the truth, but you should always start with a word’s root etymological definition to understand the theme of a word, its use in the context of the situation, and how it changed to be used today. Terms must be agreed upon to have any meaningful debate. The root definitions of words matter because they are not subjective but objective truths based in reality. Luckily, you can see from the example that the theme of taxation has not really changed even though most don’t understand that Taxation Is Theft. For everyone to understand that Taxation Is Theft we must agree that “against their will” means the same thing as “without permission” when looking at the modern definitions of the words.

     

    Now let’s go through the root definitions of Taxation Is Theft:

    • Taxation(n.) early 14c., "imposition of taxes," from Anglo-French taxacioun, Old French taxacion, from Latin taxationem (nominative taxatio) "a rating, valuing, appraisal," noun of action from past participle stem of taxare (see tax (v.)).
    • Tax(n.) early 14c., "obligatory contribution levied by a sovereign or government," from Anglo-French tax, Old French taxe, and directly from Medieval Latin taxa, from Latin taxare (see tax (v.)).
    • Tax(v.) c. 1300, "impose a tax on," from Old French taxer "impose a tax" (13c.) and directly from Latin taxare "evaluate, estimate, assess, handle," also "censure, charge," probably a frequentative form of tangere "to touch," from PIE root *tag- "to touch, handle."
    • Impose(v.) late 14c., "to lay (a crime, duty, obligation, etc.) to the account of," from Old French imposer "put, place; impute, charge, accuse" (c. 1300), from assimilated form of in- "into, in" (from PIE root *en "in") + poser "put, place".
    • Obligatory(adj.) c. 1400, from Old French obligatoire "creating an obligation, obligatory," and directly from Late Latin obligatorius "binding," from obligat-, past participle stem of obligare (see oblige).
    • Oblige(v.) c. 1300, "to bind by oath," from Old French obligier "engage one's faith, commit (oneself), pledge" (13c.), from Latin obligare "to bind, bind up, bandage," figuratively "put under obligation," from ob "to" (see ob-) + ligare "to bind," from PIE root *leig- "to bind.”
    • Contribution(n.) late 14c., from Old French contribution and directly from Latin contributionem (nominative contributio), noun of action from past participle stem of contribuere "to bring together, add, contribute," from com "with, together" (see com-) + tribuere "to allot, pay" (see tribute)
    • Compulsion(n.) early 15c., from Middle French compulsion, from Latin compulsionem (nominative compulsio) "a driving, urging," noun of action from past participle stem of compellere "compel" (see compel).
    • Enforcement(n.) late 15c., "constraint, compulsion," from Old French enforcement "strengthening, fortification; rape; compulsion, coercion;" from enforcier; see enforce + -ment.
    • Compel(v.) mid-14c., from Old French compellir, from Latin compellere "to drive together, drive to one place" (of cattle), "to force or compel" (of persons), from com "with, together" (see com-) + pellere "to drive" (from PIE root *pel- (5) "to thrust, strike, drive").
    • Tribute(n.) mid-14c., "stated sum of money or other valuable consideration paid by one ruler or country to another in acknowledgment of submission or as the price of peace or protection," from Anglo-French tribute, Old French tribut and directly from Latin tributum "tribute, a stated payment, a thing contributed or paid," noun use of neuter of tributus, past participle of tribuere "to pay, assign, grant," also "allot among the tribes or to a tribe," from tribus (see tribe).

     


    Rhetoric: A tax is considered a binding, forced, contribution that is compelled to be handed over to a government.


     

    • Theft(n.) mid-13c., from Old English þeofð (West Saxon þiefð) "theft," from Proto-Germanic *theubitho (source also of Old Frisian thiufthe, Old Norse þyfð), from *theubaz "thief" (see thief) + abstract formative suffix *-itha (cognate with Latin -itatem; see -th (2)).
    • Thief(n.) Old English þeof "thief, robber."
    • Robber(n.) late 12c., from Anglo-French robbere, Old French robeor, agent noun from rober (see rob).
    • Rob(v.) late 12c., from Old French rober "rob, steal, pillage, ransack, rape," from West Germanic *rauba "booty" (source also of Old High German roubon "to rob," roub "spoil, plunder."
    • Steal(v.) Old English stelan "to commit a theft, to take and carry off clandestinely and without right or leave" (class IV strong verb; past tense stæl, past participle stolen), from Proto-Germanic *stelan (source also of Old Saxon stelan, Old Norse, Old Frisian stela "to steal, to rob one of," Dutch stelen, Old High German stelan, German stehlen, Gothic stilan "to steal"), from PIE *stel-, possibly a variant of *ster- (3) "to rob, steal."
    • Pillage(n.) late 14c., "act of plundering" (especially in war), from Old French pilage (14c.) "plunder," from pillier "to plunder, loot, ill-treat."
    • Plunder(n.) "goods taken by force; act of plundering," 1640s, from plunder (v.).
    • Force(n.) c. 1300, "physical strength," from Old French force "force, strength; courage, fortitude; violence, power, compulsion" (12c.).

     


    Rhetoric: Theft is the act of plundering, taking goods and property by force. If we used tax in its very root sense a tax should be voluntary since it was a service fee for handling something. You would have the option to choose someone or something else to handle your business. However, since taxation has become compulsorily and everyone is forced to contribute regardless if they use a service or not it is theft. Taxation is theft, by definition.


     

    We as a society have forgotten how to think critically but the cards have been stacked against us since birth. This is only an excuse though because eventually we all need to wake up to the lies and falsehoods that are being forced upon us daily. We need to understand the disadvantage we have been given by those ruling over us. The Trivium Method of Critical Thinking is a way to gain back a level playing field. The Trivium allows us to process information so we can come to the best and most accurate solution with the information available. Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric (in that order) are the foundationof this process.

     

    Grammar must be factual and truthful, subjective opinions are not facts. Subjective words are not facts unless both parties agree to the definitions. Without proper Grammar basic communication breaks down and sets you up for failure. This failure manifests in our ability to use Logic leading to us providing rhetoric that is wrong.

     

    P.S. Taxation Is Theft

     

  • Why I am a Libertarian and Anarchist, by definition

     

     

    Recently on Facebook I saw a question being asked by Being Libertarian to their audience in which they posted “A question for former liberals: what made you a libertarian?”. This gave me a chuckle (see below) and got me thinking as to what made me a libertarian and anarchist, and the path I took to get here…

     

    I grew up throughout the 80’s and 90’s going through public school in Central Florida, scary, right?  When I was in grade school I was diagnosed with a learning disorder, Dyslexia, which caused me to have extensive trouble with grammar as a whole, so needless to say I hated all English and language courses I had during middle and high school. Over one summer during middle or high school (I forget) I spent time at a Sylvan Learning Center which helped me get caught up to passable, not saying much. Throughout the years, I avoided writing and any language as best I could. Many of the days and classes were skipped.

     

    It wasn’t until I reached college Freshmen Comp I (B) and II (A) that I started to learn the technical and logical aspect of English and grammar that I never understood before. Since this time, I have focused a good deal of my time on improving my skills at writing and the technical structure of grammar. This was one a big step towards becoming a libertarian and anarchist.

     

    My political views when growing up reflected mostly the product of my environment, center leaning “Republican” (air quotes). Even then nothing ever seemed correct or right with either choices I was told about, Democrats (the Left) or “Republicans” (the Right). Little did I know my education and grammar, on top of my issues, were tainted with misinformation by hundreds of years of work at the hands of sophists. I do feel like I was set up for failure, thanks government… This is still a reality for many.

     


     

    A democrat is someone who follows democracy which is to rule or govern the common people by power and authority through division.

     

    Democracy is where the majority make slaves out of the minority

    – Jeffrey Hann

     

    • Democrat(n.) – 1790, "adherent of democracy," with reference to France, from French démocrate (18c., opposed to aristocrate), back-formation from démocratie (see democracy).
    • Democracy(n.) – 1570s, from Middle French démocratie (14c.), from Medieval Latin democratia (13c.), from Greek demokratia "popular government," from demos "common people," originally "district" (see demotic), + kratos "rule, strength" (see -cracy).
    • Demotic(adj.) – 1822, from Greek demotikos "of or for the common people, in common use," from demos "common people," originally "district," from PIE *da-mo- "division," from root *da- "to divide."
    • -cracy – word-forming element forming nouns meaning "rule or government by," from French -cratie or directly from Medieval Latin -cratia, from Greek -kratia "power, might; rule, sway; power over; a power, authority."

     


     

    I was never a "liberal" (air quotes) or Democrat, the left are not liberals by definition, and the far right religious fanatics, those who were violent or spewed hate horrified me. Even if I couldn’t understand it I knew, and had a sense, that rights were being violated. Both sides wanted to control more than the other, us vs. them. The untold number of logical fallacies both sides displayed baffled me as a child even before I knew what the words logicalfallacymeant.

     

    • Liberal(adj.) – directly from Latin liberalis "noble, gracious, munificent, generous," literally "of freedom, pertaining to or befitting a free person," from liber "free, unrestricted, unimpeded; unbridled, unchecked, licentious."

     

    You cannot be a liberal while being liberal with someone’s money. When goods (product of your labor) is taken by force, that is theftand why taxation is theft. Taxes are taken by force and is a robbery of your liberty.

     

    • Theft(n.) – mid-13c., from Old English þeofð (West Saxon þiefð) "theft," from Proto-Germanic *theubitho (source also of Old Frisian thiufthe, Old Norse þyfð), from *theubaz "thief" (see thief) + abstract formative suffix *-itha(cognate with Latin -itatem; see -th (2)).
    • Thief(n.) – Old English þeof "thief, robber," from Proto-Germanic *theubaz
    • -th (2) – suffix forming nouns of action, state, or quality from verbs or adjectives (such as depth, strength, truth), Latin -tati-, as in libertatem "liberty" from liber "free").
    • Robber(n.) – late 12c., from Anglo-French robbere, Old French robeor, agent noun from rober (see rob).
    • Rob(v.) – late 12c., from Old French rober "rob, steal, pillage, ransack, rape," from West Germanic *rauba "booty" (source also of Old High German roubon "to rob," roub "spoil, plunder."
    • Plunder(n.) – "goods taken by force; act of plundering" 1640s.

     


     

    Most who claim to be republicans are really not “republicans” (air quotes). A republican is someone who focuses on the state and happiness of the public which is shared by all, not someone who wants a government to control that state and happiness while excluding specific people who shares the public with them.

     

    • Republican(adj.) – 1712, "belonging to a republic, of the nature of a republic, consonant to the principles of a republic," from republic+ -an.
    • Republic(n.) – from Latin respublica (ablative republica) "the common weal, a commonwealth, state, republic," literally res publica "public interest, the state."
    • -an – word-forming element meaning "pertaining to," from Latin -anus
    • Common(adj.) – from Latin communis "in common, public, shared by all or many; general, not specific; familiar, not pretentious."
    • Wealth(n.) – mid-13c., "happiness," also "prosperity in abundance of possessions or riches."
    • State (n.2) – from Latin phrases such as status rei publicæ "condition (or existence) of the republic." Note: does not mean government
    • Government(n.) – from Old French governement "control, direction, administration."

     


     

    Before I can go over what made me a libertarian and anarchist we need to determine what those words actually mean.

     

    Out of those who call themselves libertarians most are “libertarians” (air quotes). If they push for government in any way, then they are not libertarians, by definition. A libertarian is someone who holds the doctrine that each individual should be free from law and judgment and has the power to determine their purpose without a master and absolute ruler controlling them. Someone advocating for the control of others’ rights are not libertarians.

     

    • Libertarian(n.) – 1789, "one who holds the doctrine of free will" (especially in extreme forms; opposed to necessitarian), from liberty(q.v.) on model of unitarian, etc. Political sense of "person advocating the greatest possible liberty in thought and conduct" is from 1878.
    • Liberty(n.) – from Latin libertatem (nominative libertas) "civil or political freedom, condition of a free man; absence of restraint; permission," from liber "free" (see liberal(adj.)).
    • Freedom(n.) – Old English freodom "power of self-determination, state of free will; emancipation from slavery, deliverance;" see free(adj.) + -dom. Meaning "exemption from arbitrary or despotic control, civil liberty" is from late 14c.
    • Free(adj.) – Old English freo "free, exempt from, not in bondage, acting of one's own will," also "noble; joyful." Meaning "clear of obstruction" is from mid-13c.; sense of "unrestrained in movement" is from c. 1300.
    • -dom – abstract suffix of state, from Old English dom "statute, judgment" (see doom(n.)).
    • Doom(n.) – Old English dom "law, judgment, condemnation."
    • Will(n.) – Old English will, willa "mind, determination, purpose; desire, wish, request; joy, delight."

     


     

    Nature’s default is anarchy and any deviation from anarchism is the product of the environment. In Nature, there is not one ruler as each species forms differently, e.g. wolvesand dolphins.

     

    Anarchismis a philosophy that advocates a state of people without rulers based around voluntary exchange and the idea that everyone is born with inalienable rights.

     

    • Anarchy(n.) – 1530s, from French anarchie or directly from Medieval Latin anarchia, from Greek anarkhia "lack of a leader, the state of people without a government" (in Athens, used of the Year of Thirty Tyrants, 404 B.C., when there was no archon), abstract noun from anarkhos "rulerless," from an- "without" + arkhos "leader" (see archon).
    • An- (1) – privative prefix, from Greek an-, "not, without."
    • Archon(n.) – from Greek arkhon "ruler."
    • -ism – word-forming element making nouns implying a practice, system, doctrine, etc., from French -isme or directly from Latin -isma, -ismus (source also of Italian, Spanish -ismo, Dutch, German -ismus), from Greek -ismos, noun ending signifying the practice or teaching of a thing.

     


     

    Rights should be protected regardless of where an individual comes from. If no crime has been committed, we should speak out against rights violations.

     

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—

    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    - Martin Niemöller

     

    Side note: Recently, several prominent “libertarians” (air quotes) and “anarchists” (air quotes) have advocatedfor closed borders (cough, Liberty Hangout, cough) when you are in a welfare state (government forced welfare). Their claim is that you do not have a right to the freedom of movement, ever, so to maintain the government forced welfare borders must be closed.  If you notice above, the root definition of free has “unrestrained in movement” as part of the root definition. Freedom of movement is a right that all life gets after the right to life is established. You control your movements. Open borders do not violate this basic right (in a future article I will focus on rights in detail).

     

    If someone advocates for violating the freedom of movement of the innocent, they are not a libertarian or anarchist, by definition. No victim no crime, right? If a crime has not been committed and someone is violating a right, then that person is a criminal. If someone advocates the violation of rights of the innocent they are no better than a government or statists.

     

    Remember, there is no law too small that the government will not kill you over.

     

    Being killed for traveling across an imaginary line, not laid out through maintained private property, is a massive violation of rights.

     


     

    Now you might be asking where am I going with this. Well it has been my quest for a long part of my life to fix my learning disability and to be in the right. Who doesn’t want to be right all the time? So, what made me a libertarian and anarchist, by definition? It was the desire to fix myself and learning the Trivium Method of Critical Thinking, which is a way of thinking by focusing on grammar, logic, rhetoric, in that order. This process showed me how my grammar was and had been incorrect creating numerous logical fallacies (we all have them), throughout my logic.

     

    Words can have multiple meanings, subjective, but if that is the case how can we interact without issues? We cannot since semantics gets in the way of understanding each other during communication. This leads to the conflicts we see today. Objective words, root definitions, provide factual evidence and a base of understanding when communicating with others. Objective words bring clarity to reality while subjective words cloud it.

     

    Once I discovered this massive gap in knowledge I had, and the understanding that this was purposely taken away from the common folk, I quickly became a libertarian and anarchist using root definitions to words that you find above. By following this process, I can fix my logic, by removing the inherent contradictions whenever they are found, helping provide you the reader better logical and factual rhetoric.

     

    Don’t be fooled by the fauxlabels people wear, it is not their nature but demeanor. Hold people accountable for the words they use, do not let them continue this pattern created by sophists.

     

    This is why I am a libertarian and anarchist, by definition.
