Goodbye & Thanks for Reading :)

Posted in Admin on April 27th, 2013

I created this blog in 2007 after having been recalled from civilian life for a third combat tour, this one to Afghanistan’s Kunar Project. I created it because with a few notable exceptions, the counter-narrative to our government’s propaganda was largely unknown. I felt alone in my skepticism, and wanted to cry out, if only into the void.

This blog was my outlet. I’ve been posting 2-3 stories a day for over six years. Since I started tracking in 2009, I’ve had over 80,000. Lately, it’s been about 40-50 per day.

I knew what I was against before I knew what I was for — before I discovered the Austrian School of Economics, a definition of liberty. Curiously, my intellectual journey started and ended with security. (Perhaps culminated is a better word than ended, because I’m still traveling.)

In any case, it started with a skepticism about our wars, passed through the Constitution, to Austrian Economics, and culminated with Hoppe’s obliteration of the idea of the state as a monopolistic provider of security.

I will leave this blog in place, a monument to the passing of the pro-government, pro-war conception of world I had been indoctrinated with long, long ago, and a celebration of my libertarian awakening.

It’s mostly bad news here. Mostly the stuff I found shocking, disturbing, the stuff I couldn’t square with what my teachers told me in school. But once the illusions are broken, then behind this bad news there is great hope and happiness. The bad news is the vanquishing of false gods.

So it’s a monument, and an archive of my intellectual journey from 2007 until 2013. Perhaps I’ll still add a post occasionally.

I have two reasons for leaving this project: 1) I am absolutely thrilled to have discovered the vast numbers of people who still believe in liberty, strive for a deep understanding, and live their lives by their beliefs. I am overjoyed. The excellence of their proselytizing makes this blog much less important that it seemed in 2007. 2) I need time to write and pursue other projects. I’ll maintain a big presence on the internet with my own writing, reviewing books and more. You can connect to me here:

Thanks for reading.

If He Looks Stupid, He Probably Is

People accurately predict IQ based only on facial features.


Posted in Austrian School / Libertarian Theory on April 15th, 2014

From a FB argument:

“If libertarians continue to insist that 1) libertarian ideas are deep abstractions with only distant and complex relationships to the tangible world 2) that violence is a vice instead of a virtue 3) that society can be build upon the non-aggression principle alone.

Then libertarians will continue to 1) fail 2) make fools of themselves.

They are trying to achieve liberty at a discount. They are fraudulently pretending that they live on Robinson Crusoe’s Island, sheltered by the violence of an ocean.

The best they’ll achieve (if lucky) is free riding on the effort and sacrifice of people more willing to defend the social norm of property — the aristocrats. I would not call such people ‘libertarians’ I would call them ‘free-ride-a-tarians’ or ‘parasite-arians.’”


To put it another way, my criticism is that it’s unhelpful to pretend the private property rights are somehow “natural” or extensions of our biology or given to us from “nature or nature’s God.”

Nature is a very harsh place. Property rights are fought for and won and protected.

It is unhelpful to pretend otherwise.

IPCC Insider Rejects Global-Warming Report

Posted in Science / Environment on April 5th, 2014

Richard Tol, a professor of economics at the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom and an expert on climate change, removed his name from the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. While he considers much of the science sound and supports the underlying purpose of the IPCC, Tol says the United Nations agency’s inflammatory and alarmist claims delegitimize the IPCC as a credible and neutral institution.

“In the SPM [Summary for Policymakers], and much more largely in the media, we see all these scare stories,” Tol tells National Review Online. “We’re all going to die, the four horsemen of the apocalypse . . . I felt uncomfortable with the direction [the IPCC report] was going.”

Curt Doolittle:


I’m going to add Kant (obscurant anti-realism), to the ranks of history’s most destructive minds: Cantor(obscurant Pseudoscience), Freud(obscurant pseudoscience), Marx(pseudoscience), Napoleon (total war), Constantine(christianization of Europe), Plato (the Republic), Abraham(monotheism), Zoroaster (divine scripture).

Intellectual Sainthood
- Aristotle
- Machiavelli
- Bacon, Newton and Leibniz
- Smith, Hume and Jefferson
- Jevons, Menger, Walras, Marshall, Böhm-Bawerk, Wieser;
- Pareto, Durkheim, Weber and Hayek.
- Poincaré, Mandelbrot, Brouwer, Bishop, Taleb

Now, if I could get Hoppe off his Continental and Kantian platonism, then he would have be the first person to succeed in reducing all rights to property rights. Even if his definition of property is incomplete he would have done it. He managed to articulate the morality of states, but not the morality of polities necessary for the voluntary organization of production. And possibly, that was his only goal. Whereas with propertarianism, I’ve illustrated the definition of property necessary for the formation of a polity capable of voluntary organization of production in the absence of a state. But he isn’t a candidate for intellectual sainthood if he’s stuck in Kantian nonsense.

Failing that I’m stuck with doing it myself. And while I feel I have mastered ethics better than anyone else, I do not feel the same for philosophy proper. And while I’m getting there, I’m not there yet. I’m getting there. But the standard of measure is not my own comprehension, but the structure of my arguments. And I am just getting, after a year of solid hard work, to where I feel I can construct those arguments.

Einstein was right (even if a plagiarist) that most of doing something innovative is just working at it longer than anyone else.

Rothbardian Ghetto Ethics

Posted in Austrian School / Libertarian Theory on April 1st, 2014

Rothbardian ethics is parasitic, argues Curt Doolittle:

1) Ghetto ethics only require that the exchange is voluntary.
2) They do not require that the exchange is productive, only that parties are satisfied. (blackmail for example is not productive.)
3) They do not require fully informed exchange backed by warranty. (they allow lying and cheating and information holding)
4) They do not prohibit profiting from harm, or causing harm (Usury for example.)
5) They do not require that the exchange is free of externality.

Parasitic ethics of rothbard require only the first, but the high trust ethics of Protestant require all five criteria. High trust ethics (and human in-group moral instinct) require that we eschew free riding (parasitism) and the only means of doing so, is to require exchanges be internally and externally productive.

Under rothbardian ethics it is possible to profit without contribution to production, and to exist entirely parasitically. ie: his ethics are parasitic.

Good Articles About Germany’s Gold

Posted in Corruption, Sound Money on March 22nd, 2014

So, here’s what we know so far:

– In 2012, the Bundesbank (the central bank of Germany) asked to visit the vault of the Federal Reserve in New York, to view the 1,536 tons of gold they have stored there.
– The Federal Reserve told them no. They were not allowed to see their gold.
– In response, Germany said that they wanted 300 tons of their gold back.
– The Federal Reserve said that they’d need seven years to get the gold back to Germany. (Something that should take them seven weeks, tops.)
– One year later, the Fed has returned only 5 tons of gold to Germany. At this rate, it will take 60 years for the Germans to get less than one fifth of their gold back.


Seems 37.5 tons ahve now been repatriated. Up from 5 tons.

In summary, it goes like this:

– The original German gold held in the U.S. is gone. Leased, sold and rehypothecated many times over.
– Germany now wants its gold back. The U.S. balks and promises to only return roughly 40 mts/year for eight years. (By the way, why didn’t France return any gold in 2013? Germany’s looking for 374 metric tonnes from them and, in 2013, it got zilch, zero and nada.)
– Pressed to come up with gold to ship back to Germany, the U.S. scours it’s vaults.
– The U.S. takes some of it’s 1930s-confiscated “coin melt” gold, assayed at 90% purity, and recasts it into 99.5% purity London bars and ships them off to Frankfurt.
– The Bundesbank books in these new bars, apparently date-stamped “2013″, as a “return of German gold” and now awaits the other 95% of their “order”.


Actual correspondence regarding the re-casting of returned gold. (See bullet pt #4 above)


In July 2013, the US American hedge-fund manager William Kaye created a stir when he picked-up the ball, stating:

” Germany won´t ever see its gold again…… Central Banks, such as the FED, where most of the reserves had been deposited, had lent the gold to U.S. Banks such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.

The gold has been used in the market to lower the gold price and the FED has received securities in exchange…. Germany won´t ever see that gold again, because it is safely kept in my accounts and the accounts of our investors”.
