The Cryonics Movement (A Subset of the "Self-Ownership" Movement)

A great commentary on why the cryonics movement has not taken off. It is similar to most of the knowledgeable critiques of the Libertarian movement. For those of you who wish more information, I also strongly recommend the Alcor homepage and FAQ.

Rick Stanley Update

Rick Stanley has been in jail for years, for politically speaking out against judges who had violated his 2nd amendment rights. This Youtube Video investigates how and why those judges illegally used their power to imprison Rick Stanley. Essentially, Rick was imprisoned because the judges themselves felt threatened.

I guess it's now a criminal offense not to anticipate how stupid judges are, and take measures to avoid offending them, by proscribing the limits of your own speech. So before you open your mouth, I guess you'd better anticipate that the judge you're talking to is evil, stupid, and easily offended, and if you think he is, then you'd better just be quiet, because in that case, with that judge, you have no constitutional protections of any of your individual rights.

Of course, anyone paying attention knows that the court case "Sparf and Hansen V. The USA" (1895) got rid of 6th amendment jury rights, and the drug war (begun in 1907) got rid of our remaining property rights, and the "Miller V. US"(1934) court case eliminated the 2nd amendment, and America hasn't been anything close to what it was intended to be for a long, long, long time.

But that doesn't mean that libertarians should just give up. In a few years, there will be an artificial intelligence that will likely come to the same conclusion the abolitionists came to in the early 1860s: "Involuntary servitude should not be tolerated. ...Let Sherman march, if that's what it takes."

A good place for us to start building the new abolitionist/leveller/thinker/property rights/libertarian movement is

"Perverting the Course of Justice" --The Allegation Proving the "Divine Right of Kings" (insofar as "muscle over mind" rules the day)

The UK is a slave state, where the head of the church is also the head of the state. The once free America is now following slavishly in the footsteps of the Crown it once rebelled against. I can't recommend this articlefrom "The Newspaper" highly enough, for showing the masses exactly how true my prior two sentences are. The details on a weekly basis how much freedom we're all giving up to the totalitarian police state that controls the world's motorways. (I highly recommend signing up for their newsletter).

Thanks to the destruction of jury rights, there is no longer any such thing as a "Freeway" (in the literal or figurative senses of the term). It's bedtime for democracy, because without juries, "Democracy" is meaningless --it allows us only to choose a master that is less brutal than a hypothetical "total brute" --it in no way allows individual freedom.

Only a jury comprised of people who are not being paid by the government can do that. Otherwise, the conflict of interest is too great --history has proven this over, and over, and over again...

Obama continues to betray the last 143 years of civil rights progress...

"The notion that somehow local jurisdictions can't initiate gun safety laws to deal with gang bangers and random shootings on the street isn't born out by our Constitution," Obama said.
Um, no fuckhead, it actually is. The Constitution actually prohibits you, Clinton, or McCain from interfering in any way with our right to self defense. As any fool can see, that's the only reason we have any freedom at all left in this country. Gunowners have absolutely no choice in the coming election, other than Wayne Root. They'd better smarten up fast, and support him, because if they don't, they're giving a green light to gun-grabbing Republican compromisers like McCain, the author of the anti-gun McCain Lieberman bill.

The issues page is well-designed, but it should be completely clear to every voter in America who in any way respects the Bill of Rights that Obama has not even the slightest concept of the protections it contains.

...And that goes double for McCain and Hillary. If you want your civil rights after November, you have to vote for Wayne Root. You have no other choice that allows you to say "At least I didn't vote against my own rights, and my neighbors' rights".

If you support unconstitutional traffic laws, and the lack of jury trials that accompanies them...

...Then you also support roads that are actually less safe, too. Too bad uninformed socialist idiots appear to be the majority A and majority B in the country that used to be America right now. The concept of a free, capitalist country is great, but try as they might, the force worshippers and collectivist idiots can never put aside their bigotry, ignorance, and jealousy enough to make it happen. The typical assholes filling the voting booths this fall will be rushing out in vast hordes to shoot down even such basic freedoms as free speech and free trade in simple health products. Not that anything separates Obama from the other two lukewarm socialists (McCain and Clinton II).

Of course, if you're not a slime bucket, you could always do your part to call off the socialist dogs, by voting Libertarian. (The candidate that has the ability to make the LP a serious force this year is Wayne Root. Any other choice will relegate them to ongoing obscurity.) You could also go a step further and actually actively support individual freedom. Any takers?

Cool blue brain stuff...

New brain building experiments moving ahead - complete electronic model of a rat brain beginning -every single neuronal connection in rat brain is the goal (complete with robot sensory feedback body).

The mortgage mess...

Alex Epstein of ARI gets it right, here.
