    Yah but the federal govt can't mandate it for us. The states might try but even then they can't. Private sectors will be the most successful in making these mandates. Which is why more than likely although not all but mostly this is the mark of the beast, since if you can't buy or sell without it then yes that's what it is. I care less if you don't see hundreds of millions and billions dying all at once it is or will be. The full on Mark of the Beas though is already been doled out. Revelations where it says about the star who falls to earth and pollutes the water is Satan and the polluted water is God's word. The dead are already dead they're the walking dead. Unpolluted water is truth from his word but most anyone every where don't follow truth. What I mean is one such example is Romans 13. It didn't say to obey Govt it said to obey the higher liberty. The word for power in Romans 13 from the original Greek is Exousia not power. if you follow the false teaching of Romans 13 you're following the Mark of the Beast. Like mask wearing makes people look like Grasshoppers and demons as far as I'm concerned. Plus just under mask mandates some have not been able to buy or sell in some places. Stores will begin if not already stop you from even entering if you don't wear a mask and or have the vaccine. The federal Govt can only mandate their own employees. State can only mandate so far as well, but by far it will be the private sector will be the most successful in this. stop protecting the private sector on being able to deny you your rights. The second amendment doesn't stop at the door!

    Professor Young, you’ve provided a rather objective observation on our country’s political climate. Because you avoided praising or condemning any of the opposing sides for any of these issues, aren’t you afraid of losing your job? After all, you are a college professor. The idea of presenting these issues in a format which might force a person to engage in the daunting task of actual thought could be problematic to these youngsters who are so used to being told what to think. Of course, by telling a student that, “it might not kill you to think,” it may be perceived as a personal threat. Perhaps you could say, “it will not hurt you to think.” That might have the student running for the nearest on-campus safe-space, but at least you should still have your job. By the way, this is sarcasm. Some folks might not understand sarcasm because sarcasm is a result of an active mind. I better stop because sarcasm is likely to be canceled.

    The one and only time I ever spoke with him "in person" was by telephone last summer.  He shipped me a box full of old back issues of The Voluntaryist, and I sent him some voluntaryist.com stickers I had made up. He was such a nice guy, and made great contributions to the libertarian movement.  He will always be missed.  :-(

    If you would have forced the prosecution to provide evidence that the plaintiff physically existed, that the "law" was constitutional, and that the constitution applied to the defendant, you could have put an end to the death and destruction in 1994.

    Very unlikely that Biden wins.  Even with all of the fraud that will invariably be involved, I still think it'll be a Trump victory. A lesser evil or "preference" in the Rothbardian sense, if you will.

    Public vs. Private
    Page Paul Hein
    One cannot have "private" property if one chooses to be, or remain, a member of the group known as "public", that is to say a "citizen[1]". When one chooses to do so, he has sold his birthright (his natural liberty) for a mess of pottage (membership-only entitlements, privileges, civil rights); (only freemen, i.e. semi-sovereign[2] individuals, retain their natural rights), so, as Paul Hein correctly stated, "...you have put the yoke upon your shoulders. Quit complaining, and pull!" Proverbs 23:1 (KJV) When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: 2 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. 3 Be not desirous of his dainties [entitlements, privileges, civil rights]: for they are deceitful meat. [Bracketed information and emphasis added] [1] CITIZEN. In general. A member of a free city or jural society, (civitas,) possessing all the rights [civil rights, not natural rights] and privileges which can be enjoyed by any person under its constitution and government, and subject to the corresponding duties. ~ A Dictionary of Law (c.1891), page 206 [Bracketed information added] Que sentit commodum, sentire debet et onus. He who derives a benefit from a thing, ought to feel the disadvantages attending it. 2 Bouv. Inst. n. 1433. ~ Bouvier's 1856 Law Dictionary [2] One is said to be semi-sovereign only, and not sovereign, when in any respect or respects he is liable to be controlled by a paramount government. The "paramount government" of the Freeman is the "law of nature" or to be more precise, the "Natural Law of Man". In order for the Freeman to retain his own Natural Rights, he must be obedient to the Natural Law of Man, that is to say, he must respect everyone else's Natural Rights. "Tse-kung asked, 'Is there one word that can serve as a principle of conduct for life?' Confucius replied, 'It is the word 'shu' -- reciprocity. Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.'" ~ Doctrine of the Mean 13.3 To the man who tells the truth, give a fast horse; he will need it to escape on.

    "You believe in God?" the Atheistic Rights Theist asks.  "I believe in God."  "Whose God?"  Uh-oh. Faith smashed!   "The same God Who is the Author of Natural Rights," I answer.  Ha! He thought I was going to ask, "Why do you hate God?"!  "Rights," the Atheistic Rights Theist solemnly intones, "are logical constructs governing the behavior of moral agents. How those moral agents came into existence is irrelevant."  Nothing faith-based in that statement!  "So you believe in Rights?" I ask.  "Of course."  "Whose version of Rights?"   "What are you talking about?" The Atheistic Rights Theist sounds annoyed. "I'm making a statement of fact. There are competing versions," I answer.   "Rights are objective, rational, discoverable."  "I agree. Whose version of 'objective, rational, discoverable'?"  "You're a mystic," the Atheistic Rights Theist parries. "Meaning what? I believe in God?" "Yes. Theism is irrational. It poisons your thinking."  "That may well be, but atheists subscribe to competing versions of Rights." Again, I'm stating the obvious. "They can't all be right." "I didn't say they could." "Why do you hate Rights?"

    Just remember that religion flourishes where violence lives. In a country where people have hope, religion fails. Violence falls. If one truly wishes to be safe. . . follow the Atheists.

    Tax the serfs to bomb the wogs. Tax the serfs to resettle the wogs. Tax the serfs to feed and house the wogs. Tax the serfs to compel association with the wogs. Tax the serfs to quell the inevitable serf-wog clashes that ensue. Tax the serfs to fund the police state necessitated by all that quelling. "OMG! You're against mass immigration?

    As long as Mr. Samuels understands that the term, "Anti-Semite," and it's variants, are the most vile and racist ever invented. Act badly towards blacks? Racist. Act badly towards Mexicans? Racist. Act badly towards Asians? Racist. Act badly towards Jews, however, it suddenly becomes "anti-semitism" as if Jews are somehow, some way, better than everyone else on the entire planet. Frak that noise.

    The reason is most likely a biblical one. for Revelations 17 states they will agree and give their power unto the beast. That's the easy answer as far I am concerned. Their answer would be, to make sure those with mental illness don't get a hold of these guns and shoot people. The real reason is control over people and another nail in the coffin, of the Govt not knowing about what all the people do here in America on a day by day basis. One, you can't rule and control all people without first being able to gain knowledge of what all people do each day. You can do it all at once, but you may get 200 million people rebelling against your authority and lose your control over them. So they need a what, how, and why to go about making sure that as govt, they get and maintain that control. I can't go into all that now, for it would take a book to do so, lets just suffice a long time ago, even the framers of the constitution knew that over time people would want a new govt that would hopefully protect their rights where they failed. They even wrote into it, ways, or why's, and when do to so, and called it the declaration of Independence. Where it is stated "That over a long train of abuses and usurpations that have left off to absolute laws. Not word for word but still that's the gist. But they knew then they wanted a way to get and protect and keep Govt, they would eventually need a way to only allow us certain freedoms and liberties while working in the shadows on ways to keep their power and to never be overthrown. None of them truly wanted us to over throw their govt for if they did they would have never done the things and steps they did. The sedition act. for one which is the first violation of the second amendment, even though it was written in such a way to not be recognizable to most, it does just that and violate what the second amendment was written for, and that is to protect our liberties. I don't think George Washington was truly against a two party system, even though he said it, for if so he may have regulated in rules that allowed for more than just two main parties. But again back to my statement. Over time, people grew into more dependent on govt and they knew this, and over a long period of time have written in laws that allowed them to gain more power and control over us. IE Prohibition. while for the most part I think it was puritan women who hated drink, that carried the way to alcohol being banned, but within their ranks were those who knew it would give the Govt more power and that people would rebel against said laws and therefore begin a circle effect. Make more laws which make more rebellion which make more laws to contain the rebellion etc.... Hence the 1934 NFA act. Which comes just after prohibition was repealed and no longer needed, for the ST Valentines massacre happened because of prohibition to begin with, not because Govt didn't control tommy guns IE machine guns. Once repealed gun control was no longer necessary because crime rates were already declining. Next followed the 1938 gun control act which made it illegal for felons to own a gun. Why was this necessary to begin with when we were still in the early 1900's and not truly a lot of crime to begin with? and again Prohibition was repealed so mafia even though not gone lost most of it's prestige and power to begin with but because Utopia and Socialism was already in place and they needed another demon to take the place of Alcohol. Too they needed another way to gain slow control over people by what they already knew would be rebellion, and them make or manipulate people into thinking they needed more laws etc... Then came the gun control act of 1968, The crime bill and temporary ban on assault weapons under Clinton then Back ground checks and more background check and now these red flag laws etc... they know most people are sheep so when one gets gunned down their next step already planed long in advance will call upon them to protect them. More Real ID's which allow the beast to help track us etc. them more and more and more later on. As long as most people are sheep even if at some time they lose some area of control due to a partially awake populace the still keep their overall control over us. IE Seat belt laws mandatory ins laws all these make people rebel and hence make more laws etc. Plus to be able to stop people from just ignore all these laws they need more technology to make sure LEO is able to catch people breaking them. Again just another nail in them not being able to know pretty much all of what we do each day.

    “I do not expect that many people will ever appreciate the full extent of the state’s destructiveness. The state has all the advantages, from public schooling to the statist news media to almost every major institution with real power and influence in society. Of course, it has vast funds at its disposal, too, looted from the productive members of the public. People are therefore exposed, from the cradle to the grave, to indoctrination and propaganda tilted in the state’s favor. Very few ever raise the pertinent questions about the state, much less answer them correctly.   “States sometimes fail, of course, but when they do, new states quickly replace them, as most people want. Modern people, for the most part, are unwilling to assume the same degree of personal responsibility that their ancestors assumed. They have therefore sold their souls to the state, looking to it for personal and economic security and relying on its general beneficence. In this regard, they evince the triumph of wishful thinking over realistic understanding.”  ~  Dr. Robert Higgs
