All Government Is Evil

There is no such thing as “representative government,” and there never has been such a system. That is a myth, and that myth was planted into the psyche of the common man long ago.

The strong tribe invaded the weak tribe, killed them all and took their shit. Having been endowed by their creator with the ability to reason, it wasn’t long before they figured out that, if they didn’t kill them all, but instead relegated them to some level of servitude, then, in the long run, they could get more shit.

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.”
General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century, translated by John Beverly Robinson (London: Freedom Press, 1923), pp. 293-294.”

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThe weak-minded cattle called the general population accept government as their god, observe all of its bogus laws, support its worldwide murders, use it to steal from their neighbors, worship its hired killers even while in so-called religious houses on Sunday, vote in fraudulent elections meant to give power to those who rule over them, and call these elected criminals representatives while ignoring their nefarious deeds; never taking responsibility for the evil they commit in the name of that same population. This is today’s America, and this is the result of a national religion that worships the State.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  There is no such thing as “representative government,” and there never has been such a system. That is a myth, and that myth was planted into the psyche of the common man long ago. The fantasy of representative government has been accepted and embraced by the sheep since the beginning, and voting has been the shameful tool used to fool the people into believing they have a say. Those that still cling to these ridiculous notions are seemingly lost in a vacuum of ignorance, and no longer attempt to break the chains of the slavery that binds them. Who among you has broken those chains, denounced the state, and has rebelled against the misplaced authority and tyranny that is now so obvious? Sadly, this is reserved for only the few that seek, accept, and embrace truth in this hostile environment.

Those of us that attempt to tell the truth, and to expose the lies of the state, strive to help free the masses from the servitude they accept without question. These mostly unaccepted and unappreciated attempts to help those who continually refuse to help themselves are frustrating, but are necessary in order to change this false worship. What is to be gained by attempting to convince those who act as subjects of the state, who continue to obey the state’s mandates, who continue to support state terrorism and murder, and who continue to call for others to be imprisoned if they defy the state’s fraudulent laws? When reason and logic have disappeared, when authority is voluntarily accepted, what incentive remains for those who want only the truth when they are faced with a populace that not only hides from the truth, but also shuns it at every level? The incentive is education so that freedom for all can be gained.

It is very important to understand that any and all respect for the illegitimate, violent, immoral, and corrupt nature of government is based on devotion to a religion of authoritarian rule by kings; those kings who expect to be worshiped and obeyed by the rest of humanity. This religion that demands the acceptance of a ruling class has to be pounded into the psyche over a long period of time in order for the flock to bow down to what is believed to be a higher power. This false reverence has been indoctrinated into the masses for thousands of years. Today, instead of one Supreme Being, ruler, or king, the supreme power is now an oligarchy of the few making up government. Even though there are controllers in hiding pulling the strings, the people at large continue to worship at the altar of government. In this modern age, government has become God, and therefore the religion of the people is the State.

So long as immoral behavior is accepted, so long as harm to others is supported, so long as the power of government is worshipped, no true freedom can exist. Being able to go on vacation, or drive to the store, or being allowed to hold a sign in the town square is not freedom. Freedom can only exist in an environment where moral behavior is universal. This can be in an isolated society or on a larger scale, but the underlying premise of freedom is continuous non-aggression. No force can ever be legitimate except for actual self-defense, so true freedom cannot be present so long as government is in place. Government is force–government is violence; therefore government demands slavery. Living under any government system requires slavery of the individual, and therefore the slavery of all.

The only system of real freedom under natural law is anarchy. Anarchy simply means without rulers or masters, and therefore without government. Living together without aggression, without force, and in harmony is the only way to be truly free. This requires that individuals take full responsibility for themselves and the reality of life, and instead of bowing to a government master, they bow to no one.

What does all this mean, and what is the solution to the bondage of man? Acceptance of the truth is paramount, and without that acceptance, no progress can be forthcoming. Currently, the human species is going backward, and continues to deteriorate at an accelerating pace. It is not just government or rulers that have caused our slavery; it is all of us allowing it to happen. The government is made up of people, not gods. The only way that government can act as kings is if the people allow it. It is up to each individual to quit lying to himself, and understand that allowing a system where slavery exists is no different than being the slave master. Indifference is a human flaw, and the unbridled apathy that exists today is a direct assault on the soul of man.

Natural Law is based on right and wrong, and is set in stone. There is right and there is wrong, and the two can never overlap. One of the major problems we face as a people is that many believe that right and wrong are dependent on time and space, on circumstance, or are interchangeable due to human desires. This thinking is the death knell of peaceful anarchy and freedom, and without a collective acceptance of this truth, any society seeking freedom is doomed.

It may be useful to put this into perspective so that no confusion is evident. Government is a cult. All the people that participate in government are the cult priests, and all those who accept government, and live its by rules and vote in its elections, are the cult followers. In other words, government is the church, and the people that accept government are the congregation. This is the American religion. It should be abolished!

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
