Least Evil Parties

Like I’ve said before, the best chance you have at freedom is to run away to another planet. There’s other tactics you can use too, the “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, then make money like crazy” par exemplar, Sabu (and political power brokers too, for that matter—they haven’t quit capitalism, they have graduated to a higher tier, where the game has changed a bit, and you make money off of the system of coercion; Putin is a capitalist, he’s just got his investments in a different strategy, one of coercion rather than voluntarianism; it’s why I’m an anarcho-capitalist, rather than a vanilla capitalist (though, really Putin isn’t a pure capitalist, since being a genuine capitalist implies contractual, mutual agreements; it’s the same thing with anarchism—capitalism and anarchy are by definition non-coercive); anarchy has morals, objectivism and statism do not). A spin-off of this idea of compliant capitalism, which is a bad thing to do since it is stealing, but can pay off in freedom later by funding libertarianish activities. The idea is to play by the tyrant’s rules, walking over all of the inches you can in an effort to get more control over the tyrant’s own system, and then dismantling it using all of the legal traps they’ve built along the way to maintain the status quo. I call it political suicide, the candidate being the legislative payload. So this guide is made to figure out what things are like worldwide, whether there are any spots on the planet that are the least distant from anarcho-capitalistic societies as exist.

-United States of America: Libertarian party. For 2012, my pick was R.L. Wrights first, Ron Paul second (I guess he could still run as an Independent), and Gary Johnson last. It’s no an-cap, but it’s the closest there is in the country. I don’t know which state is the least bad yet. Maybe I’ll make a ranked list.

. Michigan . New York 49. Wisconsin 48. Virginia . Pennsylvania . Connecticut 47. California . Illinois . Massachusetts 46. Kentucky . Washington . Rhode Island . Florida . Iowa . Indiana 2. Arizona . Texas . Tennessee . Utah

-Russia: Mikhail Dmitrievitch Prokhorov, more capitalistic and voluntarianist than most people in the U.S.. He’s not a member of any party, and neither is Putin, which is why you have to vote based on principle. Really you should be doing this for everyone—ignore the party name, decide based on the candidate. The requirements were lessened to bring more parties into play, so I guess the Hipsters’ Party is as good as any.

-France: …pretty much no one. There are some agrarian anti-federalists called “Hunt, Fish, Nature, Traditions,” but I’m not one to support status quo-friendly traditionalism. Alsace First is kind of libertariany, but remember that decentralization doesn’t equal anarchy—the U.S. is decentralized, but more in a pyramidal scheme, where continuity of government is guaranteed by a network of half the U.S. population and most of the other half being made of unions and PACs that support statism. Communist France gives you but one choice: live in the gutters and have good healthcare.

-Hong Kong…China: Okay, it’s in China, and it’s going into full Chinese control in 2047, but for the time being, they’re pretty much autonomous. Their politics are really confusing, but they are pretty libertarian, or at least are on par with a Republican U.S. state with a lesser federal presence. All of the parties I found were socialist or leftists, with the least harmful information available being that they wanted universal suffrage. I’m not for democracy, I’m for self-ocracy—you control only yourself and make deals with others like they are foreign nations. I don’t know how I would live with fake junk all around me and I don’t know what their healthcare is like, but otherwise it’s easy living.

What's wild to me is that I started following your art when you were in high-school. Now, you've graduated college and you've grown SO MUCH as an artist. It's blown my mind. Where has time gone?? haha ANYWAYS! I have a feeling there are some great things coming your way, and I wish the best for you. UvU It's been wonderful watching your art grow into the lovely style it has become. <333 Hope you're having a good night! :-)

I found some old art books today called ‘Celtic Art: The methods of Construction by George Bain’ Which, I found interesting. I only have 4 out of the 7, they are very old (From 55 years ago). I thought I would just share some scans from them, some people might find them useful. :)

Edit

And I just noticed there is two images the same. -_-” Sorry about that, I’ll replace it with a different one later… -_-‘
