Moral dumbfounding, statism and you
by Rudd-O — last modified Mar 14, 2016 08:39 AM

That thing which happens in every debate with a statist, and which every libertarian knows full well, is actually well-studied. It even has a name.

Beware of Kafkatrapping

Wendy McElroy aptly summarizes the truth about the manipulative tactic known as Kafkatrapping, a term coined by Eric Raymond to describe that pattern of manipulation.

Statism starts at home

The differences -- racial, socioeconomic, gender -- get branded in people's brains way before they can even remember them. This is how.

Permission to travel

$110 just so you can leave. That's ten to two hours of work for normal folks. A stern reminder of how you're not "free to leave".

The individual is nothing without the State — says Hitler's inaugural speech
by Rudd-O — last modified Feb 01, 2016 10:58 PM

The years and years of Hitler's propaganda machine, brainwashing every person into complete and unquestioning obedience, started with his very first address to the German people -- telling them in numerous ways that they were powerless if they didn't support the State, and that the State was their salvation. And indeed they became worthless not long after this speech, when they believed Hitler's deceit and then begun obeying the most atrocious orders ever obeyed.

Did you know that Hitler was a socialist?
by Rudd-O — last modified Jan 31, 2016 05:55 AM

He openly said so in 1927. Note what he says sounds exactly like the sort of things that modern socialist politicians and agitators say as well. If he was ever honest in his life, it must have been when he decided to label his movement National Socialism.

Beware these monsters
by Rudd-O — last modified Jan 31, 2016 01:42 AM

They murder and brutalize people and other living creatures, and they lie compulsively whenever anyone wants to hold them responsible for their brutality. Let's look at examples of these gangsters' perversity here.

Political correctness: its origins
by Rudd-O — last modified Jan 14, 2016 10:17 PM

A hundred years ago, Marxism gave birth to what is now known as critical theory -- the seed that would yield political correctness. This short documentary goes over the central figures of the (Marxist) Frankfurt School who were responsible for creating said Marxist cultural thought formula. Note that the documentary is culturally out of date so some elements will naturally be flawed — the historical aspect, however, is solid.

Government lies — digitally printed guns do show up on scanners
by Rudd-O — last modified Jan 03, 2016 03:01 PM

This fact is important because they are leading a war against 3-D printing, and it's a war based on lies. The U.S. government has used legal coercion to prevent you from learning that, contrary to the lies they have told before to scare you, 3-D printed guns cannot in fact be smuggled into random places. They use your fear and your ignorance to keep you afraid from learning this truth. Never fear, though: one X-ray — that by court order others weren't allowed to show you before — is worth ten million lies.

Mongols are always the exception

These fellows did some remarkable things that nobody else has accomplished, from conquering Afghanistan to (successfully) attacking Russia.

Cultural Marxism

A copy of the long-since memory-holed article on Wikipedia detailing the concept of cultural Marxism — a colloquialism used to describe the critical theory work of the Frankfurt school.

Regulations as hamster wheels

The Megaupload song — remixed!
by Rudd-O — last modified Nov 12, 2015 01:06 AM

Many people know how Megaupload got attacked, and how their promo video (full of Top 40 stars), despite being released free to be republished and remixed, was targeted by hundreds of fraudulent takedown requests. But it prevails, and it's here for you. Enjoy!

Copyright is brain damage
by Rudd-O — last modified Oct 26, 2015 06:26 AM

How the system of copyright we must endure is Kafkasque in nature, how it damages artists, how it censors creators, and how it enriches a few already-rich men, all at the expense of the public. A TEDx presentation by Nina Paley.
