Freedom Forum

Welcome to the Freedom Forum of Freedom's Phoenix!

Freedom reigns here like the days of the old Wild West! We have no corporate or government censors to tell you what you can and cannot say in our public forums. We encourage everyone to keep a civil tongue, but you are free to express your opinions no matter what your perspective is on any subject -- just be prepared for someone else to have an entirely opposite view and tell the world you don't know what you are talking about!

Some entries, which our regular editors consider too vulgar -- according to their standards, may be tagged "Crude or Lewd" so the faint-of-mind folks don't have to view them, but everyone can use the link on the right-hand column to decide for themselves whether to show those entries or not.

Anyone may read the discussions shown in our forum. You will need to sign-up as a member and provide your name and valid email address to be able to add comments and participate in the discussions. There is no cost to join.

Whitehead is forever coming up with fake enemies and fake solutions. "Governments" force people to pay them. That is and always has been the problem. Once the people of the planet face that fact, the solution will come naturally.

It seems to be a pervasive strategy of US power-brokers to accuse foreign governments of doing what they themselves are doing. In this case the accusation can be summarized as, "covertly meddling with the outcome of US elections in order to bias the outcome of the US political process." Am I the only one seeing the HYPOCRISY of that accusation? The US government, through the efforts of its diplomatic corps, its intelligence services, its economic sanctions, and its direct military interventions, has overtly and covertly subverted the political processes of HUNDREDS of countries in Central and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia and has openly touted its goals of "regime change". And these actions have caused the deaths and excruciating suffering of hundreds of millions of people. If anyone has the moral high-ground on this issue, it certainly isn't the US government.

Well, I guess it's a good thing I NEVER OPENED MINE! Back in the 90's when I lived in SoCal and worked in the Aerospace Industry (remember that?) I collected 'Non-Sports Trading Cards'. It started when the Wife and I went to Blockbuster (of which after the two in AK closes, the one in Bend, Oregon is the last one left) to rent something to watch. On the counter was a display with some 'Rock Cards' put out by Brokum. Cool. I bought some, and got a Specialty Grateful Dead card right off the bat. I was hooked. -3 decades later- In my collection of THOUSANDS of cards is an unopened set of Mr. Jackson's visionary INWO. To go along with it, I have uncounted unopened cardpacks, specialty cards, blank cards (for creating your own world-ending scenario), and a couple of pieces of original artwork for a card or two purchased off EBAY. Not for sale. : ) Ed

But we will never know if the military is the one who is the hacker. Why not? The hacker could claim that he designed the stuff, and that the military stole his designs, and the military hack-erased his plans and documentation of everything that he did.

Google "plasma garbage converter." - "Eliminates the need for land fills, freeing up additional space for other purposes. Provides a means to potentially mine old land fills, which eliminates the leaching and other contamination issues associated with land fills; including the resultant methane production which is a significant green house contributor. PWC is the ultimate in recycling since all organics are turned into energy and all metals and in-organics are fed back into the economy without the need for sorting or separate handling. PWC provides distributed generation capacity. As a result, restructuring the National Power Grid to distribute the power would not be a part of the cost equation. If utilized nationally PWC would provide about 70 Gigawatts of distributed generation. Provides a significant decrease in Green House gases." - http://www.kva-engineering.com/plasma_waste_converter.html

"Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukrainians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a Great Leap Forward that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children. In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy's mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state's mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous." ~Robert Higgs

Whitehead can't give up on the idea that "we" can have good government. No surprise because he's a lawyer. Every government that has ever been was evil because it existed by stealing money from strangers. Whether Whitehead likes it or not, "we" live the best part of our lives as anarchists. If we lived all of our lives as anarchists, "government" would disappear through lack of interest, and the Whiteheads of the world would have nothing to complain about.

It's funny how so many people measure success by how much fiat money they have.

Look. It's basically as simple as this. Your ID isn't you. Get an ID for yourself to use. If anybody has a problem with you, find out what it is, and correct it. If you owe someone, pay him. But if someone brings you to court without saying "man" or " woman" in their talk about you, they are only bringing the ID to court. If they make trouble for you, the man/woman, sue them as a man/woman for messing with you, and sue their bond if they are a government official. All this anti-ID talk that is out there is only a bunch of BS. The 4th Amendment "person" talk is what IDs are all about. You ain't that person. You are a man/woman. If the person has done something wrong, let them put the ID in prison, not you, because you haven't harmed anyone, they haven't even called you, the man/woman, to account. They have only called your ID.

Two basic things happen in the transfer of bitcoins: 1) two Bitcoin addresses “talk” to each other in an encrypted “language” that only they can understand; 2) in the “talk,” a simple number disappears from one address, and appears in the other address. Five things will make blockchain technology really powerful: 1) same as 1, above; 2) the si9mple number in 2, above, becomes a string of numbers and letters and/or other characters that never change, which include (perhaps at the end of the string) a property identification number (like a VIN for a vehicle); 3) anybody can enter a new ID# at the end of some string (the first part being created by the program); 4) once the ID# is entered, it is compared with all ID#s in the blockchain to make sure it doesn’t exist already; 5) this ID# becomes the method for property transfer of the property it represents, rather than the simple transfer of digits like Bitcoin does.

Exactly. But it goes much deeper. For example. Let’s say you have 200 families living on 5 square miles of land. All they are is good neighbors. There is no government, because they are good people, and have no need for formal government. Now, lets say that members of 20 of these families get together and want to form a government. They talk 20 more families into it, and the 40 families form the government. Ten more families join, and they start taxation of the whole group. The other 50 families weren’t even interested enough to realize what was happening. But members of the 50 government families force all the families to take part in the taxation. Isn’t this stealing by governmental action? Isn’t this exactly what government does today? Make the whole government voluntary, and if there are benefits that someone wants, make him pay for them. But leave the rest of the people alone and don’t tax them.
