I once knew a girl in high school who I admired very much. Her grades were consistently at the top of the class. She had a style all her own. Her bedroom walls were covered in magazine clippings and collages she'd spent long hours on. She didn't mind falling off a skateboard and scraping her elbow. Her creativity just shimmered through everything she did, no matter how small. She seemed like the model student. More so, the model friend. Then she started trying different things. Introducing different chemicals into her already-brilliant psyche. She figured that she may as well now, while she was still young and able. That—, in her words—, she'd like to have all these things "under her belt." It confused me. She already seemed perfect, why the need to experiment if you've been blessed with so much. Stranger yet, her grades never suffered. They didn't dip once. Throughout all the psychedelics, pills, and whatnot—, she remained on top of her class. This confused me even more. Long story short: she transferred schools and I never saw her again. I'd often think back to her free spirit and nonchalant attitude toward drugs and try to see the soundness therein. Her premise was probably that the more experiences one has, the more they'll have to draw from, hence, the more reliable their conclusions will be. But I don't need to stick a needle in my arm and shoot up heroin to know it's bad for you. There are studies available. I've skimmed a few. All sarcasm aside—, there actually are people in this world who won't respect an iota of your opinion if you haven't done each and everything you're describing on a firsthand basis, multiple times over. Though, nobody reaches the top of the Empire State Building and needs proof that jumping toward the street below will be the worst—, and last—, mistake they'll ever make. It's common sense. It's engrained into our DNA. Rationale; it's there to be used, often. So why this elitist obsession with having as many things under one's belt as possible? They claim "enlightenment" as these would-be’s ingest handfuls of brightly technicolored capsules and listen to music so new that it hasn't even been assigned a sub-genre yet. These "brave" culture warriors teeter the edge which divides our mainstream from the scary wilderness beyond. They self-appoint themselves the true curators of cool but only because there is nobody else who cares enough to make such a huge production out of whatever the current flavor-of-the-week happens to be. Everyone else is gone. They've moved on. They grew brains and with them created goals, outlined plans, and just started taking those who chose to stay behind at their words. "Oh..., too many counteractive drugs in your body will shut down your central nervous system?" So I’ve heard. "Oh..., you smoked three packs a day for twenty-some years and now you're bummed out by your test results?" Hmm... "Oh..., going through withdrawals really isn’t fun?" Wow. A priori knowledge is independent of experience, a posteriori is dependent on experience or empirical evidence. If a privileged upper-middle class teenager who's been lucky enough to grow up in an environment where the realities of drugs could be observed through both those that litter the streets of his downtown and the internet at large, still needs further empirical evidence to fully commit to a conclusion, then I would venture to say that he is probably welcoming of all the misery he's plunging himself toward. There are certain things in life that I don't need to experience on my own skin in order to label them a certain way. A priori knowledge. Anyone who sees this as whimpering away with fear is a masochist and can be my guest when it comes to trying "that new gasoline stuff."My only guess is that people are forever trying to one-up each other. You've tried the pink powder? Well I've tried the blue. And so on and so forth. I don't admire this type of thinking. It gets you killed or at the very least, makes you extremely regretful. The one I admire is the third person looking at the two who are arguing with a look of bewilderment that shouts out: “Why?!”

Your Unique Ability Posted on March 25, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, we have a unique ability to effect the future of mankind, because of the times we live. More than most people in most other times and places. It’s only at focal points in history that folks have the leverage we do now. Our decisions have moment beyond our mental grasp. Usually, its only in the after thought, that people realize the magnitude of the times they lived through. This is another thing that makes our times singular. We know change is happening. Your every decision, purchase, conversation, argument, keeping silent, speaking up, etc… has more effect on the future than in normal times. Because these aren’t normal times. We live in the ancient Chinese curse… “May you live in interesting times.” Which, if you think of it, makes you much more powerful than you ever realized. We’re not on the brink of WWIII we’re in WWIII. Today Ukrainians are fighting and dying for the globalist elitist cause. Biden, McConnell and Johnson want to assure you, they’re willing to fight Russia, to the last Ukrainian. Then to the last Frenchman, Englishmen, and American… Hell, they’re willing to blow up the world, if that’s what it takes to save democracy. They’ve marched NATO to the border of Russia and claim Russia is the aggressor. Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, the pacific theater if you will, Biden’s obviously on the CCP’s payroll to the tune of 30 million dollars. Let’s see if China invades Taiwan this spring when the tides become favorable in the Taiwan straight. If they do, it’ll have been with the incalculable help of purchased American politicians, corporations and bureaucrats. We all know election fraud at scale is probably going to tip the scale in favor of the elite again. People who get away with breaking the law don’t back down, they go full throttle. Look at history. In 2016 they concocted the Russia collusion hoax, used it to get a special prosecutor, and FISA warrants to spy on Trump… and got away with it. No one was punished. Even The lawyer who lied under oath got a wrist slap. Now they’re in charge again. The courts overstepped their Constitutional authority in 2020 and changed election rules allowing mail in voting. Even as the video of people taking ballots from under a table and counting them, after counting had officially stopped, still hasn’t been explained. Then there’s 2022 that was as bad if not worse. So I expect 2024 will be a humdinger year of election fraud. The elite are in the process of fundamentally changing the demographic of the West. Soon there’ll be no nation with a majority Caucasian population on the planet. That’s not rhetoric, it’s demographics. Europeans are too busy having fun, to have babies, so they aborted them. No muss no fuss. The result is, no nation in Europe is replacing itself, organically. Instead they’re importing replacements. People who are willing to have children. Children who won’t be European, have European values, or embrace European culture. Europe will no longer exist. For good or bad, not making a judgment call… but let’s face it. If any race doesn’t have children… within 100 years, they’re gone. Which means people of European descent will be effectively extinct in a century. Like Neanderthals and Denisovans. WWIII, insane government, and a world wide ethnic cleansing… could times be more interesting? We aren’t passive observers though. We’re active participants. You have an effect. Worried about nuclear Armageddon? Contact your representative, bend their ear, write articles, speak up, tamp down war fervor, there are more ways to act than you realize. Tired of corrupt as vulture vomit government? Go to town council meetings, speak up, vote, organize, volunteer to election watch, contact your county sheriff, ask how they’re going to address election fraud. Then there’s the demographic death spiral… Have a large, healthy, happy, and prosperous family. Demand a stop to open borders, immediate deportation for illegal alien criminals, no welfare for non citizens, etc… You have the power… use it! Sincerely, John Pepin

The Power Of The Purse

Power Of The Purse Posted on April 16, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, we see the astonishing power of the purse in the medical system. Any debate that goes against the narrative is stifled by the threat of liquidation. Punishment is rapid and severe should anyone have too much to think. That’s one reason why the vaccine that isn’t… is still available, pushed on toddlers, and no one has gone to prison for the deaths it’s caused. How many medical advancements have been suppressed by the medical elite… exploiting their power of the purse? Since the power of the purse is so omnipotent, when used by people with a backbone, isn’t it sad the US House abdicated it to the bureaucracy? The power of the purse has such amazing force, it’s capable of getting people to participate, knowingly, in the murder of millions… or the destruction of their own nation. Those who control the funding have the ultimate say. Speak up against Global Warming, and everyone knows, you get fired. From a weatherman, to a physicist at CERN, your job depends on your keeping quiet… and participating in the lie. So the experts participate. Do you want to study toenail fungus? Don’t bother writing for a grant… unless your study is how global warming is making toenail fungus worse. Then untold millions will be available to you. That’s how the funding of research can be used to manipulate data, and conclusions. Come to the wrong conclusion and you’ll never get a grant again. So “scientists” will lie, and participate in lies… to keep their job. As would you or I. If our livelihood depended on it. Because, only a fool, or hero, bites the hand that controls the purse strings. Covid’s origin and effective treatments were suppressed by the power of the purse. Upon Covid’s appearance Fauci set himself to using his power to control the flow of money, bribing the experts, to parrot what he told them to say. They were faced with a dilemma. Lie when they know they’re lying, or face the wrath of Fauci. They saw the example the elites made of Doctor Malone, and no one wants to be made an example of. Stripped of credentials, lambasted in the media and called a quack… for telling the truth. It’s much easier to play ball and lie. To this day, the control of who gets what funding, decides the narrative about Covid, and the mortally flawed vaccine that isn’t. Not just shutting up “scientists,” but getting them to participate in murder… by the power of the purse. How many people took the vaccine, knowing it’s potentially mortal side effects… because their job depended on it? I know of several. Those people knowingly risked death, or worse, to keep their sucky job. Now that is power. The power of the purse. It can force people to risk life itself. No wonder the bureaucracy so loves it. Bureaucrats decide what gets funded. They write the budgets, and representatives give it a thumbs up, or thumbs down. If they give it a thumbs down, the mockingbird media attacks them and threatens their jobs. So republicans always back down, rather than shut down, the government. In this case, the power of the purse, is used to wrest the power of the purse, from the congress. Because one side is willing to use it… while the other is terrified of it. It’s astounding congress gave the power of the purse to the bureaucracy, since it’s able to get people to forswear their honor, participate in lies, and even mass murder. How do we know this? Because under a “rock ribbed republican,” speaker Johnson, the republican controlled House didn’t write the budget, the bureaucracy did, under the guidance of the democrats, and the “budget” they passed reflects it. The bureaucracy decides what gets funded, who gets punished for speaking out, and who gets rewarded for playing ball. Not the republican controlled House. They gave that power up. Instead, holding hearings about how bad Biden is… and doing nothing about it. Showing us how useless congress is. Having given anti- Americans the power of the purse. A purse our Constitution gave to them. Sincerely, John Pepin

Compromised Politicians Posted on April 13, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, we’re way too hard on our friendly, thoughtful, and compromised politicians. While yes, many if not most are corrupt as vulture vomit, it’s not their fault. Some are literal psychopaths. Which is a birth defect. The rest are controlled by the deep state. Because, while a politician must face an election every few years, the deep state is above the law, our constitution and consequences. If a politician doesn’t have a perversion the administrative state can hold over their head, they’re picked up by a black SUV, and shown pictures of their children leaving school. People are vulnerable to many kinds of manipulation. Especially by immoral actors with omniscient surveillance and impunity to law. I wonder if that’s not why, people who started their careers in politics with integrity, rapidly become scum. Nowhere in the US Constitution, is the government given the authority to kill American citizens without trial… yet the deep state does it all the time. In fact the Constitution strictly forbids such activities. But, since the bureaucracy isn’t really a constitutionally constituted entity, it doesn’t have to abide by that antiquated document’s suggestions anyway. Our Constitution also expressly forbids what the government is doing to Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and Donald Trump… yet they’re doing it. Perverting law in public and without consequence. Because, the deep state has normalized their above the Constitution status, through the mockingbird media, and their sock puppets in congress. So the bureaucracy acts as it wants, justifying their endangering our very lives… by national security. The elephant in the room, of the Jeffery Epstein murder called suicide… is that it was done by the bureaucracy. No politician could have pulled it off. Even Colonel Robert Hogan couldn’t have swung that one. That murder and subsequent cover up was deep state action. Multiple people across multiple agencies had to be intimidated or bribed into complicity. Only the deep state has the ability to do that. Why? To cover up their political leverage operation. Had the tool talked the gig would have been up. The videos of their marionettes would have come out, and congress might have been cleaned of corruption. Until the deep state could salt the ground again. The result is, our “representatives” are captured by the deep state and bend to their will… even backwards, as we see with speaker Johnson. How is a septic tank different from congress? You don’t have to swallow the stuff that comes out of a septic tank. We go to jail if we can’t stomach the laws and lies our corrupt congress passes though. They have all year to come up with a budget yet fail to, every year, and “have” to pass an omnibus bill funding everything the deep state wants. Almost like the administrative state decides the budget and congress is a rubber stamp? Oh, representatives and Senators piss and moan about it… but dutifully vote for any usurpation when the time comes. They have skeletons in their closets too. Congress could stop illegal immigration with the passing of a single law, banning non citizens from any social services… but would never do that! They’re wisely terrified of the deep state’s wrath. Our politicians are controlled, they have no agency, a janitor at McDonalds has more freedom. Our politicians have too much power to harm the bureaucracy to be allowed a long leash. So they’re held in check by fear. Remember when Chucky said, “They have six ways to Sunday to get you…?” He was expressing his terror of the deep state. Quite an unintended admission, isn’t it? Our politicians may have started with honest, good and noble intentions, but intentions are the road to Hell… and the deep state’s made Congress a superhighway. What’s the answer? There are many things we could do, contact our representatives, inform our neighbors, participate in the process, etc… but we won’t do them. Sadly, we won’t act until its too late. The collapse the deep state will cause though… that always works. Sincerely, John Pepin

The Revival of Wisdom

If you take a few steps back and look at the bigger picture you may see that there are many similarities and correlations between religions, cultures and even scientific disciplines. Is it possible that many of the religions and cultural teachings of the world originated from a single source? According to the Kybalion all nations have borrowed their knowledge and teachings from ancient Egypt, including India, Persia, Chaldea, Medea, China, Japan, Assyria, Greece and Rome. The book claims that much of the Esoteric knowledge and spiritual Wisdom of the world stems from Hermeticism, and rightfully so. Anyone who studies the concepts and principles of The Hermetic philosophy will find that they tend to resonate with many religious, cultural and even scientific teachings. It could even be said that the religious, cultural and scientific teachings of the world are now culminating and leading people to Truths about reality that the Hermetic philosophy has taught since the very beginning. For example, there are some striking similarities between various Christian concepts, ancient cultural teachings and scientific “discoveries” that may be reconciled and better understood through the Hermetic philosophy. Is it possible that many of today’s religions were born out of the Hermetic philosophy and evolved (or devolved depending on your perspective) into what they are today? How many ancient cultures have been influenced by the Hermetic Philosophy and to what extent? Is it possible that today’s science is simply rediscovering knowledge and information that was known to ancient civilizations from all over the world? In modern societies religion and science are usually viewed as separate, and even opposing fields, however, many of the ancient civilizations of the past were deeply connected to the Sacred and practiced what may be referred to as the Sacred sciences. They had access to higher levels of knowledge as we can see in the Hermetic principles expounded through The Kybalion which may be interpreted as scientific, religious or even cultural. Today’s science has been reduced to physical, observable, recordable and repeatable phenomena, which, although relevant and important, is very superficial and only scratches the surface of reality. Although modern science appears to have advanced in many ways, it is also simultaneously and paradoxically descending into materialist reductionism, which is largely due to the influence of atheism, unconscious biases and man’s ever-increasing disconnection from, fear of, and hostility toward the Sacred. Man’s technology may be rapidly advancing, but he himself has fallen into psychological and spiritual stagnation and regression, devolving into a mechanical, inhuman automaton. Many people today automatically associate the words ‘atheist’ or ‘atheism’ with those who “believe in science”, but if you look at the etymology of the word, the adjective “atheos” simply means “Godless”. The word atheism, at its root, is just a fancy word for Godlessness, and although it is often associated with science and touted as if it were a school of thought for the more ‘intelligent’, ‘sensible’, and ‘advanced’ strata of the population, the Truth is that atheism is a disease. However, this is not an argument in favor of religion over science, most major religions and their churches are just as lost and corrupt as science and its institutions. Cultural teachings on the other hand, have preserved much of their ancient Wisdom, which stands the test of time and remains unchanging and eternal throughout the ages. Ancient cultural teachings are particularly powerful because they are based on knowledge of, a relationship to, and interaction with the Sacred, whereas religions are often based on faith, belief and texts. Many of the ancient cultures and their ways of life have been labeled as ‘paganism’, an inadequate, dismissive and slanderous term whose definition displays a lack of understanding towards ancient knowledge and a misinterpretation of their practices. For example, showing reverence towards the earth, sun, moon, stars, cosmos, nature, etc., was not always necessarily worship of that specific object or aspect, but rather these things were used as conduits or portals to honor and pay homage to the sacred, animating force that dwells within and flows through all of creation. It is only by honoring the Sacred that human beings can live in a state of harmony and balance with the earth and nature, which is one of the distinguishing characteristics of a truly advanced civilization. One of the reasons that ancient civilizations built pyramids, temples, observatories and megalithic structures that were astronomically aligned was to emulate the beauty and order of the Cosmos, as the saying goes “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”. This was not ‘paganism’ or ‘idolatry’, it was a higher form of piety that involved Wisdom, technologies and aspirations far beyond the comprehension of “civilized” men.

The earnest, the privileged and the dark horse

In the tapestry of society, threads of earnest effort, inherent privilege, and unrecognized potential weave together to shape individual destinies and societal dynamics. These three categories—The Earnest, The Privileged, and The Dark Horse—offer lenses through which we can explore the complexities of achievement, opportunity, and destiny. The Earnest: At the heart of every success story lies the narrative of earnest effort. These are the individuals who have overcome adversity through sheer determination, perseverance, and hard work. From rags to riches, they have defied the odds and carved out their own paths to success. Their stories inspire us with tales of resilience, grit, and triumph in the face of adversity. Whether it's the immigrant family who built a thriving business from scratch or the student who defied expectations to become the first in their family to attend college, The Earnest remind us of the power of perseverance and the resilience of the human spirit. The Privileged: In contrast to The Earnest, The Privileged are those who have benefited from inherent advantages—whether it be wealth, social connections, or access to resources. Born into privilege, they navigate a world that often tilts in their favor, offering opportunities and advantages that others may never know. While privilege comes in many forms, its effects are undeniable, shaping opportunities and outcomes in profound ways. From legacy admissions to elite universities to family connections that open doors to lucrative careers, The Privileged remind us of the complexities of privilege and its implications for social justice and equity. The Dark Horse: Yet amidst the narratives of earnest effort and inherited advantage, there exists a third category—the dark horse. These are the individuals whose significance or potential may not be immediately apparent but who possess unique qualities or inheritances that could lead to unforeseen destinies. Often overlooked or underestimated, they possess a hidden spark of potential waiting to be ignited. Whether it's the quiet student who surprises everyone with their talent or the struggling artist who defies expectations to achieve greatness, The Dark Horse reminds us of the power of unrecognized potential and the importance of nurturing it in all its forms. As we navigate the intersections of earnestness, privilege, and unrecognized potential, we encounter a tapestry of complexity and nuance. Individuals may embody multiple identities and circumstances, navigating the complexities of their own experiences. The lines between categories blur as we recognize the interplay of earnest effort, inherited advantage, and unrecognized potential in shaping individual destinies and societal dynamics. Yet amidst the complexity, there are challenges and opportunities to be found. We must confront the disparities of privilege and strive for greater equity and justice in our societies. We must recognize and celebrate the achievements of The Earnest while also acknowledging the responsibilities of The Privileged. And we must nurture and support The Dark Horse, recognizing the potential for greatness that lies within each individual, regardless of their background or circumstances. As we reflect on the stories and insights hidden within each thread of society's tapestry, let us commit ourselves to creating a more inclusive and equitable world. Let us celebrate the achievements of The Earnest, challenge the privileges of The Privileged, and nurture the potential of The Dark Horse. Together, we can weave a tapestry of opportunity and destiny that embraces the richness and diversity of the human experience.

Modern Courts Posted on March 29, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, what most modern courts and judges are too stupid to realize, is the court itself is on trial every bit as much as the defendant, especially when a defendant has negative political favor. Not only is the justice system’s honor on public display, before the public and world today… but they themselves will be judged as long as records are kept. In their hubris today’s judges think their illegal rulings are forward thinking. They, after all, have the benefit of two centuries of human advancement to draw upon. So why follow the dictates of a bunch of ancient ignoramuses? Forgetting, the very authority they wield is based on the writings, thoughts and constitution those ancient ignoramuses created. Undermining their own authority… and recording it. Can anything be more stupid? History is filled with examples of US courts taking the nation away from Constitutional principles. In some pie in the sky progressive power grab. Take Wickard v Filburn. FDR and the progressive intellectuals had it with capitalism. They understood they could run it better, being so smart, wise and dog gone it, just better people than the rest of us. The darn Constitution stood in the way. So the Supreme court wiped Constitutional limits away, ruling anything that effects interstate commerce can be regulated by the federal government, no matter how tangential, inconsequential or private. Opening the way for the birth of permanent Washington, also called the bureaucracy, administrative state, and deep state. History reviles those “justices.” As it does all judges that violate their oaths. The judgment in Korematsu was as anti American as it’s possible to be. The Supreme court went along with a Presidential edict, by FDR, that imprisoned American citizens, without warrant, charge or trial. Based purely on how they looked. That ruling has allowed the government to break every constitutional right we have, by calling it national security. Even to the point of murdering people… in the name of justice. The “justice” Thrasymachus opined about in Plato’s Republic. Where the strong take from the weak and call it just. Because the courts, controlled by the strong… say it is. Ruling based on political favor instead of law, precedent or Constitution. Then exploiting their knowledge of law, precedent and Constitution, to justify their ruling. Exactly backwards, and publicly, like in Korematsu. The Buck v Bell eugenics case spits in the face of our Constitution. In that illustration of why Thrasymachus was right, the Supreme Court ruled a woman must undergo forced sterilization, to protect the gene pool. She was weak, the strong decided to take her ability to have children from her… and used law, precedent and power to call it justice. These laws are still on the books today. In the US the government can, at the President’s arbitrary determination, lock up whole swaths of US citizens without warrant, charge or trial. The bureaucracy can deem you a threat to the gene pool, arrest you, and force you to undergo a medical procedure designed to harm you. Government can order you to starve on your own farm. All called “just” by the supreme court. Justice as Thrasymachus described it. As our courts gut Constitutional protections, in their ignorance and outright stupidity, they gut their own credibility. Which is why people today see courts as biased, corrupt and running contrary to their purpose, and history will record them as villains. The role of the Courts is to protect our Constitution, our Rights and limit the power of the elite. Our Thrasymachus courts have expanded the elite’s power, because judges identify with elites… not the hoi polloi. The grindstone never respects the grist. So why should the judges allow mere citizens to have rights? The grazers might get uppity. Forgetting, history has a long memory, and justice doesn’t change depending on the political favor of the defendant. Everything they rule is recorded. Proving, judges today are too stupid to know, “Always in cash and never in writing.” Sincerely, John Pepin

Ethical Elites Posted on April 3, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, our elites have an ethics issue, they don’t have any. Our elites are people utterly lacking morals. They’re not so much amoral as immoral. Why do I say this? Because it’s obvious and no one else seems to be saying it. We have people without a conscience running the world today. Any glance at the actions of the elite over the last few decades shows unequivocally they’re demons. Who zealously attacks efforts at election integrity, other than people without integrity. Who opens the borders to their nation to criminals, sappers and terrorists? Villains who desire crime, chaos and terror in their countries. Moreover, what monster exploits law as a weapon? In doing so destroying our faith in the rule of law. These aren’t the actions of ethical characters but of immoral scoundrels. The gusto the elite display in defending election fraud is astounding. Anything that might limit the amount or severity of the fraud is crushed. It’s like they know the people hate and loathe them, and so need to use election fraud, to stay in power. If that’s the case, and only a fool would think otherwise, doesn’t that make the elite unethical, for opposing election integrity, and engaging in election fraud? Those certainly are not the actions of honest fair minded sages… but of scoundrels. You can tell when a state has become utterly corrupt. Elections are mere theater to manipulate the masses into thinking they have a say. But it’s election fraud that decides who wins. Why would the elite defend election fraud and attack any effort at election integrity? The fraud could harm them… unless they’re the fraudsters. The elite love open borders. George Soros has even named his anti human foundation, Open Borders. Since Biden pried the US border open, by executive order, and is refusing to enforce the law, untold millions of people have flooded the US. Even as the Tories in Britain, who came to power based on a pledge to cut illegal immigration, have steadfastly defended the invaders right to invade. Any criticism of the invasion, or their intent to murder their way through British society… is now illegal. Mouth off in Britain, and you’ll be arrested and extradited to Scotland, to face punishment at the hands of a lunatic court. Showing British elites are liars of the highest caliber. Heck, that’s not really true. All the elite are liars of the highest caliber. Lying isn’t considered ethical now, is it? The elite in the US and Europe are using law as a political weapon. Could there be a more unethical thing to do? Their exploitation of law to harm their political foes, Alex Jones, Kyle Rittenhouse, Roger Stone, Scooter Libby, General Flynn, and Donald Trump, obliterates the trust that took centuries to build. I, for one, have lost all faith in our court system. Probably you have as well. At least to some extent. Once law is used as a tool of political oppression, it becomes wholly useless to control the population. Because everyone sees it and its rulings for what they are. Manifestations of unjust power. Not simply unjust power, but power that misrepresents itself as fair, unbiased and honest… when we all know that’s a lie. Making judges some of the most unethical people around. Removing the fences between things creates chaos. Chaos can then be used to undermine the existing status quo, destabilizing it, to allow for a new paradigm to be built. Someone who would use such a tactic however would have to be bereft of ethics. Like our elites. Proven by their unethical stance on immigration, law and elections. There are dozens of other examples how our elites epitomize the term, villain. Their penchant for pedophilia, Covid, and the vaccine that isn’t. None of these things are ethical, moral or wise. They’re malevolent actions done by mortal demons. We have to ask ourselves, do we want people so immoral they exploit law as a weapon, pry our borders open, and engage in election fraud? Perhaps we should start demanding our elites have ethics? Sincerely, John Pepin

National Security

National Security Posted on April 4, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, the greatest threat to American national security, is the government itself. Let’s consider it. What if the government miscalculates in their scheme to get Putin, and Russia launches a nuclear strike against the US? Will that have protected US national security? Obviously not. The world would end, America would cease to exist, and the government itself would have destroyed our nation. Then there are the masses of illegal immigrants flooding into our country. The government itself is abetting this attack on national security. Obviously, helping Iran and Islamists, who openly call for the destruction of America and is building nuclear weapons to that end, is counter productive to national security. To protect national security then, we need to disband the government. Every usurpation the government does is justified in the press as needed for national security. Yet the same people trodding over our Constitutional Rights, to protect us, are putting us in more danger than ever before. Even as the threat of nuclear war is higher now than in 1962. NATO has an army fighting against Russia in Ukraine, 30 years after the fall of the Berlin wall, and the end to the Cold War. All the while claiming Russia is the aggressor. There’s no reason to be at odds with Russia except the elite want it. They have decided Putin must go, and if the world is endangered with total destruction, so be it. That however, isn’t really conducive of national security now, is it? If the nation is wiped out in a nuclear inferno, wouldn’t that make the government the anti-securer of the nation? We have to be censored now, in direct violation of our Constitution because, national security. One wonders though, how is my speech dangerous to the continued existence of our nation, but the government allowing unlimited numbers of unvetted aliens into the country, isn’t? That doesn’t make sense. Millions of people, most of whom are probably nice people looking to improve their lives, but lets face it, they can’t all be good decent people. Like, perhaps, the criminals Venezuela took from their prisons and sent here, potential CCP sappers, and/or Islamic terrorists. 1% of 8 million people is 8,000 potential soldiers. Imagine what 12 battalions of terrorists could do in the homeland? Just the mass shootings, so far this year, amount to a far greater threat to national security than my speech ever could. The government is very worried you might make our nation unsafe by living too high on the hog. Even as they burn millions of barrels of fuel on armored conflict, fly private jets to global warming conferences and spend our nation to oblivion. The US pays a trillion dollars a year interest on the debt… and the elite are borrowing and spending more! There’s no limit to their spend thrift. A bankrupt nation is not a safe nation. I challenge you to argue otherwise. Then they hamstring our economy with carbon credits? All that does is enrich the rich, create a barrier to wealth for the people, and empower government to harm the nation’s interests. Yet the elite are concerned your pickup truck burns too much gas, your home is too comfortable, and you eat way too much beef. Which is more dangerous? If government is indeed as worried about national security as they claim, so much so they crush our Constitutional Rights under their jack boot, in a zealous march toward total safety… then why mortally damage our nation? Nothing is more risky to national security, the continued existence of our nation, than nuclear annihilation. The country descending into chaos, is far more destructive to national security, than our pointing it out. The same government that runs multi trillion dollar deficits, chastises us about our standard of living! The reality is, our nation’s continued existence is threatened more by our own government of globalist traitors, than it ever could be by American citizens thought, speech or other Constitutional rights. It’s time to disband the deep state in the name of national security. Sincerely, John Pepin

Libertarians fully accept and embrace hierarchical social or economic contracts that are entered into voluntarily. As long as all participants are doing so voluntarily, and have the option to opt out if the other party fails to uphold their end of the contract, libertarians have no problem with anyone choosing to set up their own commune, socialist endeavors, or any other collective arrangement. What people like myself wish to make widely known by all people is the very real fact that there is no such thing as a legitimate central planning authority. No self respecting human being would knowingly support giving other human beings carte blanche authority over every aspect of their social or economic lives. Considering the rules and edicts, depending on which political gang is in power, are continually changing, there is no way to even make a decent case for the pretense of a Social Contract any more. A Contract by its very definition sets the rules for all participants to abide by. And all participants know the rules can not change without everyone agreeing to those changes. The future of individual liberty will entail a shift from politics and central planning governments to something akin to any other business model that gives everyone personal autonomy and accountability. Getting an education, going to the Doctor, and even what we use as a economic medium of exchange, storage of value, or economic measuring tool (currency) will be done with no gang of middlemen taking their cut or dictating the rules in their favor. The future has the potential to be very bright for those who seek true liberty. However, there will be a whole lot of growing pains and a lot of suffering before that can happen. Which is why it is wise to put your social and economic life in order sooner, rather than later, so you will be one of the ones fully prepared for the transition. CL

Unjust Courts Posted on April 14, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, as long as people are treated unjustly, and unfairly by the courts, how can any of us expect fair and just treatment? We can’t. A dog understands justice. Unfairly give two dogs out of three a treat, ignore the other, and there will be a reaction. Because justice is so hard wired into our psyche that even pets understand it. That’s why we have the cannon of law. To call the unjust just. It may take a lot of intelligent thinking, to rationalize injustice as justice, but we have some of the smartest lawyers who’ve ever lived. Backed by judges who live in an echo chamber atop an ivory tower. Law has been crafted into the acme of Thrasymachus’ version of “justice.” Where law is used by the strong to take from the weak and pretend it’s just. As US law and our courts are obviously doing. People are on their best behavior when in public, knowing this, how absurd is it for the courts to publicly shame themselves? The term “Railroaded” was invented in the 1800s because, at that time the railroads had so much political favor, they could act with impunity. They would take anything they wanted no matter how illegal…. and the courts would back them. Thus the term… “Railroaded” came into popular vernacular. The railroads were stripped of their power by public opinion. The public became so annoyed at the obvious political favor the courts were giving the railroads, they contacted their representative, cornered him in public and at rallies, demanding action on the railroads. The railroads had acted in public and so had angered the people into action. Courts rule based on political favor and expedience, then backtrack with law, to justify it. As they did with the railroads, Dredd Scott, Buck v Bell, Korematsu, Wickard v Filburn, etc… making them theater, masquerading as courts. Because, those decisions spit in the face of Constitutional rule in general, and our Constitution in particular. US courts aren’t the only ones subject to this. All courts across the planet rule based on political favor. Look at the recent ruling of the World Court, that Switzerland hadn’t done enough, to combat climate change! Even as Europe is burning down due to an invasion of people who despise Europeans, their customs and their little dogs too. That same court would never rule against unlimited immigration. No matter the negative effect on the people or immigrants. Examples abound of our courts publicly humiliating themselves. The absurd, clearly political charges against Trump, are only the latest in a long line of public humiliation of the justice system, at their own hands. Kyle Rittenhouse’s self defense was documented by a multitude of cameras. Yet, the courts tried to crucify the boy, to manipulate public opinion against our Constitutional Right of self protection. Barring that, make an example of him so others will simply lay down and die. Then there’s the example of Julian Assange. The British courts have humiliated themselves over and over. Even today doing mental gymnastics to extradite him against their own law. Can you imagine how lacking self awareness the Texas and Connecticut courts were, when they railroaded Alex Jones, for wrongspeak? Even an amoeba swimming in a pond in northern Alaska knows US courts are worthless. The public action of our courts has utterly obliterated their authority. All they have now is naked power, that flows from the end of a gun… as Mao put it. Those with political favor will fight to the death, to protect the system that protects them, while we hoi polloi don’t know how to wrest justice back. This isn’t a recent problem, as Plato’s Republic explained, with the Sophist Thrasymachus. Is Justice simply a tool for the strong to control the weak? Or is it a real thing? It’s real… because even a dog understands it. So what we have in our court systems today, are malevolent people railroading law, to their own ends. To the detriment of humanity… until we become sufficiently outraged to do something about it. Sincerely, John Pepin

Thought For The Day: What's the righteous answer?

As a teacher and proponent of the Socratic method, I often use thought exercises with my students, prodding them toward the truth instead of spoon-feeding them as their indoctrination camps (schools) do. I am new to posting here, so I decided to post a thought exercise here to spark conversation. Please consider the following hypothetical scenario, and give your opinions in the comments. Several years ago, a veteran of many wars returned to his family home, having finally quit the military after the last war. He had been on the losing side of the conflict and finally had enough. Let's call him Tom. Tom returned home to his wife Ellen and their six children. A day later, some of the victors in the war sent a few of their soldiers to Tom's house and they seized control of the premises under threat of violence. Tom and Ellen had no choice but to abide. They had to prioritize their children's safety. A few days of harrowing misery later, the occupying soldiers invited some other people to come and live in this house. Let's call this new group, Omega. The Omegas loved the new house and began making changes around the house. They drove the kids out of the best rooms and the six children now began sharing two rooms, cramped for space. Tom felt powerless and aged quickly. A few years of living in such despair saw Tom and Ellen in the grave. When the will came, the soldiers acknowledged that the majority of the house now really belonged to the Omegas and the children could find lodgings in the meager barn on the property if they so chose. The soldiers decided that they had done what they came for, and left the house with the Omegas firmly established in the house while the six children were relegated to the squalid barn. The children tried their best to recover their stolen house but to no avail. They failed. Many years passed and the Omegas flourished in the house while the six kids managed to have families of their own, a few of whom, remained in the barn while the others fled searching for more hospitable areas elsewhere. In the meantime, the remaining family members tried to wrest back control from the Omegas but they failed, always being driven back to the barn. Sometimes, the Omegas even assaulted the barn, surrounding it so that none of the neighbors could help them even if they wanted to. Now, do Tom and Ellen's progeny have the right to take back their home from the Omegas, no matter the cost and the time that passed?

Panicked Elites Posted on March 17, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, we all know the democrats, bureaucracy and elite, are in a complete panic over Donald Trump getting elected. Despite the fact Trump played ball with them at every turn. He appointed Federalist Society picks to the courts (who then turned around and stabbed him and us in the back), he ditched his most ardent supporters who the establishment hated, like Newt Gingrich, and Trump even appointed deep state operatives to key positions, Like Bill Barr, that they then used to undermine his policies. So why do they hate the man so? Before Trump ran for President, he was loved by the elite, or so they claimed. Now his election to office must be stopped as a threat to democracy. Is It because he can’t be bought, intimidated or because he cut two regulations for every new one? The absolute insanity Trump creates in the elite has led them to exposed themselves as the wire pullers they are. Their unhinged reaction and continuing to pollute their own wells, to get the man, shows there’s something very wrong. Why would people who are conniving, if not smart, so expose their illegality? To the point of regularly perjuring themselves before Congress? Like Chris Wray. Obviously, there are no criminal consequences for a deep state operative to perjure themselves, that’s expected, so why would they ever tell the truth? Moreover, why would anyone believe such bold faced liars? Like when 200 top deep state operatives signed a letter, claiming the Biden Laptop was Russian disinformation, effecting the 2020 election. They had to know we would find out they were lying. People who rise to the level of the elite generally know better than to poop in their own well. That’s what other people’s wells are for. Yet here they are, polluting the source of their authority, with obvious lies? Why are they so afraid of a man they can’t buy, intimidate or otherwise control? We can only speculate, based on actions and likely intent… as a jury must in any criminal case. By their actions, the elite have shown they’re not sane, but in a blind panic. Because only panic causes someone to act crazy in public. A person having a psychotic break with reality will scream crazy talk, become violent, and disrupt everything with their antics. Because they’re in a psychotic break… like our elites. In their panic over Trump they’re having a fit, one that they can’t control, because they’ve gone daft. One can come up with a myriad of reasons the elite are in a demented state. Criminal activity sets at the top of the list. Perhaps for the same reason they had Jeffery Epstein murdered and covered it up… the pedophile pimp to the elite. The FBI raided pedo isle so they have the blackmail videos. Making it possible they worry about their pedophilia being exposed without plausible deniability? Even as the tidal wave of evidence Biden is corrupt as vulture vomit is ignored by the deep state. While they go after parents at school board meetings and citizens protesting for election integrity instead. Violating dozens of laws in the FISA process in their vindictive persecutions. It could be possible the elite don’t want their illegal activities to come out, because they would go to prison, for life. Government is a gravy train that keeps on rolling… until it doesn’t. No one riding a gravy train wants it to stop. What’s worse is getting off a gravy train and into a prison cell. Now that’s a strong motivation to terror. Would Trump derail the gravy train? Does anyone think it’s even possible, the elite are protecting democracy, by violating every oath of office, law, precedent and our Constitution itself, to keep him out of office? It would take a strong motivation for them to so soil their own source of power. The prideful will do anything, to protect their image, let alone stay on a gravy train and out of jail. Nevertheless, the elite who have gone mental, have proven they’re unfit for service. Especially given the probable reason they’ve gone berserk. Their panic belies their corruption… their actions prove it. Sincerely, John Pepin

Narcissistic Elites Posted on April 12, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, as the small is an analogue of the large, in physics, chemistry and economics, small relationships mirror large ones. The large relationships are those between groups of people and small ones those between individuals. The analogue becomes apparent when we examine the narcissist and the source of narcissistic supply. In the family a parent is occasionally a narcissist. That parent then destroys the child slowly, feeding off their discomfort and pain, a vampire that drinks suffering. The large relationship between governments and the people is a copy of the narcissist family. They create suffering in the people, then feed off that suffering, as a parasite feeds off a host. Which means the elite epitomize narcissism. Since there’s no curing the narcissist, the only answer is separation. The narcissist loves to create turmoil. When confronted with two options, one will improve the situation, and the other will make it worse… the narcissist, and narcissistic elite will reliably choose to harm. Especially if that problem gives them more power, because they’re the only ones who can solve the problem, (they intentionally created). Our narcissist governments then are the source of most of the turmoil we as mankind face. Out of their boredom they don’t have a choice but to stir up chaos. Which means the narcissist has to move regularly, because of the turmoil they created, fleeing the consequences, and to find new victims. The narcissist government so alienates the people, they seek to replace us, with new victims. Lured in with candy and pleas to help them find their puppy. Narcissists need to be the center of attention. If the people get too much attention, our narcissistic elites get jealous. Have you noticed, any time populism is mentioned in the unbiased media, it’s always in a negative light? “Why Thurston, as you know, that’s a populist notion…” says some authoritative brainiac on CNN. Avoiding the logical conclusion, that the speaker of such a sentence is by definition… an elitist. What’s an elitist? A narcissist who’s so arrogant, stupid and lacking self awareness, they think they can run the world. All they need are enough guns. Any nod to the needs of the ruled is, heavens to Betsy, populist! How can the elite be the center of attention, if we’re paying attention to the needs of someone else? As the narcissist does in personal relationships… so do narcissistic elites in government. Narcissists have big egos and are prone to narcissistic injury. As our narcissistic elites are. I’ve noticed a few times how Biden gets out of place angry when asked a difficult question. Often challenging the questioner to a physical duel… rather than answer the question. As a narcissist would. He’s not the only elite that resorts to anger either. The elite don’t like to be confronted by their lessers. Moreover, it appears, the higher in the hierarchy a person gets, the more narcissistic they become, or is it, only the most narcissistic rise in the oven of power? No matter, the top echelons of power are always filled with narcissists. Like Kamala Harris. No one can work for the woman. Clearly because she treats them so poorly. Isn’t that how you can tell the soul of a person though? The way they treat waiters? Let’s face it, we’re the victims of narcissistic abuse… from the elite. Sadly, there’s no curing narcissism. When in a relationship with one, the only way to stop being the victim of their insatiable need for narcissistic supply… is to leave them. Because you can’t fill a narcissist’s need for validation. It’s like filling a black hole. The more it gets the more it wants. The elitist narcissists that run the world today are a black hole. Their need for power, glory and attention only grows. Not only politicians but especially the bureaucracy. An ecosystem designed by narcissists, for narcissists and run by narcissists… for the benefit of those narcissists. We have to use whatever means are at hand to root them out of power. Then limit that power so the next crop of narcissists can’t do what today’s have. Sincerely, John Pepin

The Legal System

The Legal System Posted on March 18, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, the legal system is supposed to grease the mechanism of business, soothe interactions between men, and maintain order. But like any grease that’s put on too thick, instead, it increases friction, gums up the works, and pollutes the product. Law is like kudzu, in small amounts you can make a tasty treat from it, but if allowed, it will take over and smother everything else. Our legal system has become super kudzu. It’s overgrown the entire economy. Law and lawyers no longer lower friction to operating a business, by providing order, they cause friction between employer and employee, by introducing monetary incentives to strife. The legal system goes on to inhibit any new factory growth due to the exorbitant legal cost. Perhaps a better analogy than kudzu is mistletoe. One or two bunches won’t kill a tree, but once a tree is covered, it’s as good as dead. Then the mistletoe that sucks from it dies as well. Mistletoe however isn’t conscious. Lawyers are. While even mistletoe knows enough to try not to kill its host, attorneys haven’t that level of wisdom. In the US they’ve set themselves to killing their source of nourishment. As with mistletoe, once the host dies, so do the parasites. Lawyers, who consider themselves the smartest people in any room, seem to lack that basic survival instinct. That’s why they have so trashed their own homes. No one who’s paying attention trusts the law anymore. We all see that it’s arbitrarily applied, written and adjudicated. That’s not law, it’s a tool of oppression. Judges are the gatekeepers of the legal system’s honor. I think that’s one reason we call them, “Your Honor.” Because our legal system is based on honor. What if a priest, rabbi or minister went to a stripper bar every night? What if he proclaimed he was only preaching to the lost, not partaking of the carnal delights? Would that hint he may not be honorable, or maybe it would prove he is honorable, since he’s able to withstand such temptations? I suspect people would soon fall away from his flock seeking a religious teacher who lives what he teaches. Judges are the priest who spends his nights in a nudey bar. Every time they abuse law, precedent and our Constitution to force their opinion on society, they despoil the honor of the court system. The exact opposite of their duty. The courts have become a joke, where one can predict the outcome of a case, not based on law, precedent or Constitutional principles, but by who the defendant is and what court the case is in. In Arkansas for instance, Tyson foods can’t be successfully sued under any circumstances. First, no lawyer would take up the case, second no court would find against Tyson, and third no judge in Arkansas would allow a fair trial in the first place. Tyson foods has too much political favor in Arkansas to be sued. On the other side of the spectrum, in California, unless the CEO is friends with Gavin Newsom, any company can be shaken down by the legal system. It’s a cost of doing business in California. The utterly corrupt court system backed by the laughing stock ninth circus. Our legal system has overgrown our nation and is threatening to smother us and our economy. Maybe it’s time to prune it back a little? In the case of our legal thicket, pruning shears won’t be enough, we need herbicide. Start by cutting regulations to the bone. Then remove protections from prosecutors and judges, and criminally charge them for breaking the law. A prosecutor can suborn perjury without consequence as the Fani Willis corruption case proves. A judge needn’t follow the law he or she imposes on us. Making the entire system a joke. Toss a few corrupt judges in prison and the rest will think twice about violating their oaths of office. Jail prosecutors abusing their authority and you’ll find prosecutors will stop abusing their authority. Force law to follow the law and law will self limit. Sincerely, John Pepin

The Doom Loop Of Economics Posted on April 10, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, American cities have committed suicide, entering the doom loop of economics. Under the normal progression of creative destruction, you would expect the collapse to be followed by a Renascence. Sadly, in this case that’s unlikely. Because the problem that’s destroying our cities isn’t going away with the economy. It’s entrenched. Diverting the normal creative destruction cycle. Sticking them in the destructive phase… forever. Many cities are stuck in the doom loop of economics. Though not all are, or used to be, mega cities. Small towns sometimes get stuck too. Usually from poor decisions by the town elders. Seeking short term success, and personal profit, over the city’s interest. Leading to a town getting stuck in the doom loop… just like NYC and SF are now. Joseph Schumpeter in his book, Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy, coined the term, “Creative Destruction.” My take on his idea is that economics runs in a cycle. That cycle is similar to the natural growth cycle of organisms. There is a period of growth, followed by a period of stagnation, then growth again, and so forth. In economics, his theory is that the growth phase (creation) creates malinvestments, high cost and graft. The recession phase (destruction), cleans out the malinvestments, cuts the cost of start ups and cleans out the graft. Then entrepreneurs buy up those cheap storefronts, factories and commercial buildings to start their businesses. The cycle starts anew. The Holy Grail of economics, the cup Keynes clutched at, is to stop the cycle at the top. The destruction phase can’t be overcome by cheap facilities, if regulations, graft and crime make it impossible to do business. The best idea will fail, even with almost no overhead, if the moment the doors open, everything is stolen. Only in places where there’s high profit can graft be successfully maintained. Then there are taxes and regulations. Money is fungible, it’s like water, always seeking level, so a cost is a cost. No matter if it’s for facilities… or lawyers and taxes. Therefore, in places with high taxes and regulations, even a free property can be too expensive to renovate. Especially when those same taxes and regulations are driving away the other businesses and those with means to leave. That’s how big cities and small towns get stuck in the destruction phase of creative destruction. To allow such cities as Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore to rise, the people holding them down must be removed. With the corruption at the ballot box in those cities, that’s not going to happen. So they’ll continue their free fall to oblivion. Despite having cheap infrastructure, a workforce and ideal locations. Because the source of the friction to their rise is built into their systems. Regulations make it incredibly expensive to do anything. Graft and taxes follow any success at all. That is, if a business can get past the rampant, unprosectued crime. Finally, a main tenet of Confucius was that people follow their leaders. From the mayors office and beat cop to the poop gatherer on the street, the entire edifice of government in American cities, have followed. They’re corrupt to the core. Smart people are fleeing. America is being drained. One look at the US debt clock proves it. Our decaying cities and towns are only the physical manifestation of it. The rot started at the top and it’s at the top that we have to address it. Rudy Giuliani cleaned NYC up, and now is public enemy number one… even as NYC has become a disaster zone again. Showing what the elite want. The rush of people with the means leaving is creating a vacuum drawing in freeloaders speeding the descent. Companies are leaving our cities due to crime, the “migrant” crisis and safety. Even as small businesses are on their heels. If a shop owner defends himself from a thug, robbing him, NYC police arrest the shop owner. The problems our cities and small towns face, are largely of their own making, but at least the corrupt are getting rich doing it. Sincerely, John Pepin

The Victims Of Chaos Posted on March 24, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, it’s probable the Hegelian manipulation the elite have unleashed on us, may turn on them, forcing them to accept our terms… a return to Constitutional rule. Waves of terror are about to sweep across our nation. Visited on us by elites in Washington DC. Elites who, to this point, have been safe. Because conservatives… conserve. The terrorists crossing our borders on the other hand are violent extremists. So far, only trannies have done mass shootings, and once CCP infiltrators take over an Air force base and fly the B1 bombers to China, Islamic terrorists go home to home, and crime becomes utterly out of control, the elite expect us to run to them, begging to be tyrannized. When in fact, it may be the elite who run to us, for protection… from their own Frankenstein’s monster. The mass migration the elite are pushing on the world will result in violence, crime and perhaps civilizational collapse… if the elite are “lucky.” Depending on your definition of lucky. If luck is getting what you want regardless of the consequences, then they’ll be very lucky, but if it means escaping the consequences of stupid decisions… then no, they’ll have terrible fortune. Because the people in a penthouse may think the building can collapse under them and they’ll be safe. Riding the collapse and stepping off at the last moment. Reality is, they’ll be going the fastest when they hit bottom, because they have the greatest distance to fall. Private armies will help, but once the US devolves into chaos, an estate won’t be an asset, it’ll be a target. Typically, chaos pushes people to embrace tyrannical government, if for no other reason than to just make it go away. This Hegelian manipulation is dependent on a people incapable of self defense, ignorant of the reason for their predicament, and weak minded. In any nation there will be the foolish, ignorant, and inept, that will turn to the oppressor for succor. As long as the stupid make up enough of the population, and there are no strong minded people willing to stand, the manipulation works. If however, there is a cadre of smart men willing to stand up, with ability, the manipulation fails. Because armed citizens will ban together to defend their communities. If the elite are psychopathic and stupid enough, they’ll clamp down on the “vigilantes,” and create civil war. The problem is, the elite aren’t really safe in their gated communities, so the chaos they’ve unleashed will eventually visit them. Probably more acutely than it will the general populace. Because criminals are looking for victims… not a gun fight. Why try to break into a hardened home, when the only possible profit would be a few jeans, a lap top and a TV… when for the same effort you can break into a mansion, and bag jewelry, gold and cash? The elite’s standard of living will collapse along with our civilization. Being the most dependent on it. They think they’ll sit back, eat popcorn, and watch us murdered in our homes, our women raped, as we starve or eat bugs. When the reality is, they’re the ones who will suffer the most. Having the most to lose. The idiots. If we hold out, defend ourselves, our communities, and allow DC to collapse in the chaos they’ve created by boycotting system… they’ll turn to us for help. No amount of money printing will stop a bullet, no propaganda will stop a gang of criminals ransacking a mansion, and corruption at the DOJ won’t stop a riot. Those with the most to lose, will lose the most, by the collapse. Bringing it on themselves with their utter stupidity magnified by their malevolence. The elite think, in their fevered nightmare, that they’ll be gods once they collapse civilization. They’ve convinced themselves of it. Using every bit of intellect they can muster, they’ve proven, theoretically, that if they burn down the house we all live in… a new one will magically appear. Thinking they’re wicked smart. I agree… they’re wicked. Sincerely, John Pepin

My thoughts regarding the debate...Sadly, while these two gentlemen, who I have a lot of respect for, argue over the role of government, their audience will not come away with a full grasp or understanding of an inescapable truth that very few people understand regarding government. The unbridled truth is, the belief in Government authority is not grounded in fact, logic, or universally consistent ethics, but on fully mystical and impossible concepts that can be proven to be wholly contradictory and fallacious. Statism is a religion that even many proponents of freedom believe in. They have been trained to believe that without Rulers (Government), society would instantly break down into complete and utter chaos, or a full on civil war of political/tribal interests. They have been trained to fear a world without Rulers, and it works like a charm on most people as long as they can avoid being confronted with some cold hard truths that very few people know, and are willing to share in the face of overwhelming opposition. The reason for that is because they are not thinking from first principles or allowing their preconceived notions to be challenged, due to the fact that it will rock the very foundations of the beliefs they, and everyone they know, have held for the entirety of their lives. Very few people seem to possess the courage or character needed to break free from the mental enslavement they have been subjected to all their lives. Avoiding learning this kind of truth is profoundly easy to do in the modern world of distractions, conformity, and the tendency for people to surround themselves with other likeminded people who believe the same things they do. By never questioning or challenging these mystical concepts, a person can avoid conflict with the many other true believers in their lives. However, the long term consequences of maintaining this illusion will ultimately prove to be far worse than allowing your mind and psychology to develop beyond a slave-like mindset. However, those of us who do let go of that fear, and embrace the journey that comes with learning what it truly means to be a free human being, are forever changed, and would never wish to go back to having our minds shackled in such a way ever again. They may enslave my body through the plundering of my productive labor, but my mind is free as a bird.CL 2024 Rand Debate A lively debate inspired by Canadian Supreme Court Justice Ivan Rand "Logic must yield to common sense as well as to justice." www.eventbrite.ca

Our Crazy Elites Posted on March 27, 2024 by john Dear Friends, It seems to me, future historians will get rich, writing about the insanity of our elites. How could the most well educated people ever, go utterly insane? That will be the theme. Millions of words will be carefully crafted into pages and books about it. Novels will be fashioned about the lives of those who allowed it to happen. Statisticians will count up the deaths in the hundreds of millions, again, because of government action. Another annul in the history of malevolent government will be written… and probably ignored by the next crop of stupid egoistic elites. Our times surpass the French Revolution, WWI, WWII, or Mao’s Great Leap Forward, by an order of magnitude. Both in the death count once it’s all over and the stupidity and malevolence of the elites who brought it about. In the moment it’s easy to forget we’re part of history. Remember, this moment will be recorded on a government data bank, in an NSA computer… forever. Perhaps as the physicists say, time moves like a film, an image of reality flickering on for a moment then gone, but the frame rate of reality is the Plank length. Each passing cell in the film of time, the wise try mightily not to surpass their past selves, in stupidity. Sadly many of us seldom achieve that goal. When you or I fail, it leads to our chastisement at the hands of fate, but when the elite do stupid things, and fail, it leads to millions of deaths and untold suffering for mankind. Each passing cell of time the elite surpass themselves in stupidity, making the world worse for themselves, and everyone else on it… for whatever stupid reason they’ve concocted. History is a recount of the exciting… not the mundane. No one cares if on Dec 2, 1805, there was a great bar fight, someone had a good meal, or if Eggbert Slokum pitched hay that day. We’re interested in the Battle of Austerlitz, the rise and fall of Rome as well as Alexander’s psychopathic conquering. Famines, wars and empires are interesting, because in them are lessons to be learned. Some are just outside our ability to comprehend. Other lessons urgently taught by history are unpalatable so are ignored. Because history’s consequences aren’t immediate, like eating night shade salad, they seem immaterial. Those who survive though, won’t make that mistake again, and will pass on the information. Unfortunately, an out of control elite leading a people to destruction, are always illiterate. The lessons of history are lost on those who are admonished by them. The elite, who are the primary targets of history’s schooling, find them unpalatable. Psychopaths intent on power, will cross any bridge, then burn it behind them. Every example of an elite or tyrant who does that is a similar tale… disaster for the tyrant, oligarchs and the people. Oh, historians might misallocate the blame to an invasion, famine or climate change… but reality is, collapse always and everywhere is the result of stupid leadership. Invasion would have been unthinkable when that state was powerful, famine is temporary and wise leadership with stores of grain can stand long periods, even as Anthropogenic climate change is man made, in that it’s made up… like King Kong. We’re in it now, we can stand and fight, run and hide or lay down and die. The choice is up to each of us to make. The smart will make it better for everyone, the stupid will make it worse, psychopaths will seek to profit, and martyrs will lay down and die. History is filled with examples of what works, what plays into the despot’s hands, and the innovative. Speaking up, refusing to lie, and even civil disobediance have worked. Uprisings have seldom restored a system, they typically install a new despot, taking revolution off the table, unless the elite start openly killing people. Its not the system, that’s bad, its the elite that are running it. They need to be removed and replaced. With people who will do their job. Overseen, by someone with the power and motivation to police them, like a Numa. Sincerely, John Pepin

Two minutes of elevator music and another two of straight silence. Suddenly, a deeply cigarette-laced voice glides through with low-to-the-gravel pitch, filling the empty digital quiet of the Twitter Space as if it were the indwelling of the divine presence within the Holy Tabernacle. Just a touch under 25,000 listeners have assembled for this live broadcast, to tune in and soak up every raspy utterance. They’re young men, interested in money and self improvement, but not like the common rise-n-grinder. Brute de Force (@brutedeforce) has billed himself as a roving sports gambler who can power clean three hundred pounds. It’s not a conversation. He’s launched, as usual, into a screed. It will continue for at least another twenty to forty minutes as he breathlessly weaves in multiple variations of nearly every adjective, deftly employing metaphors from the weight room to make each point. A treatise on success and manhood, on fearless living, presented as if it were a dance with Death on a razor blade. Brute’s got 100,000 Twitter followers. All this is not by chance. Young men are desperately searching for a psychological and spiritual antidote to the preciousness and femininity they were inculcated with from birth. They tried the tools of the regime and each, of course, failed. Confidence is lacking. Fear is abundant. Brute, a mohawked son of Beverly Hills, was raised by a single mother. Through sheer will he transformed himself into a high stakes gambler and olympic class lifter. Against all the odds, he became hardened. Now in his late thirties, he’s gone from raging boy to hustling Marcus Aurelius. Instead of writing epistles to himself, he tweets gems of wisdom and speaks mellifluous musings in Twitter spaces, his chosen “artform.” Many of these attendees have invested real money with him. Some lost it in various league matches and prize fights. Others won. The outcome is unimportant. Brute explains he’s got an “eight-figure limp” in both legs. That’s his artful way of saying he squandered over ten million dollars on bad bets twice and it’s affected the way he walks. Yes, that’s a good thing. When you’ve pushed yourself to the edge, people know it just from the way you move, and that is the essence and goal of his philosophy. Nothing can truly be faked for a man. “As a man your experiences stack up on you… they weld together your persona, your character, your spirit, and your heart. You weld all these mechanisms together into a tightly knit chain… Some motherf—ers are resilient as f—... Because they’ve been there… And they’ll do it again. And they’ll do it again.” Free and comfortable in your own skin, creating indomitable confidence through the crucible of action, riding waves of failure and success. Seeing your emotions and the terror, and moving past it. It is exactly what the men of our world need to hear because it is precisely what today’s young men fear. Only a man like Brute who has many times severely overleveraged his position through “degenerate” gambling and survived that terror, could tell the over-safe masses what it’s like to put everything on the line. “Life for men is really all about the adventure,” he explains. “The power and the thrill. It’s not about what you currently have. Ever. EVER.” If you think stacking cash or putting twenty pounds of muscle on your chest is going to make you the guy, he explains, “You’re sorely mistaken.” That’s easy. “It’s the motherf—-ers who go out and seize the unique opportunities that end up with all the leverage. Status has nothing to do with money.” You may get those common things: muscles, muscle cars, muscular money. They’ll help but there will be incongruity. An overnight Bitcoin billionaire isn’t impressing anyone. Lived experience provides congruency between what your soul wants to be and how you actually manifest to others in the real world. Creating a true and authentic connection between those things is what makes people interested in you. There’s no shortcut. “It’s about multiple tours around the world… through hell, through heaven… the darkest places of yourself, the lightest places of yourself, you gotta go through all of these different places to understand.” This is exactly the philosophy a legion of coddled sons of single mothers and “beta-bucks” fathers need. It is the forgotten way of the conquistador. But will you listen?
