Want a green pass, so you can fly your own private jet? Here’s how
by Eric Worrall

The lesson, in my opinion, is clear. If you want a green pass for flying your own private jet, without attracting green disapproval, all you have to do is say you are concerned about CO2. Then nobody in the green movement will care what you actually do – all they seem to care about is what you say. By voicing support for approved green narratives, you will have established yourself, in the eyes of the greens, as one of their in crowd. You will not be expected to live by the same rules, and standards of behaviour, as ordinary folk.

Why doesn't democracy work?
by David S. D'Amato

Democracy and Political Ignorance is an instructive and illuminating contribution to the libertarian discussion of American democracy, underlining both the practical difficulties of reining in the United States’s powerful, centralized government and the potentialities of decentralism as a means to accountability. Practical, electoral politics is shown to be little more than a distraction and source of entertainment, with information on all sides skewed, contorted, and misinterpreted in ways that make decent public policy unattainable under present conditions. Still, lest we are too disheartened by the level of ignorance among voters or by the terrifying inertia of a massive government, we should recall the words of Benjamin Tucker: “Education is a slow process, and for this reason we must hope that the day of readjustment may not come too quickly.” Ironically, when ignorance about the nature of politics and government is truly remedied, individuals will not turn to the ballot, but away from it, casting rulership in all its forms aside as a relic of a dark past.

My Devil's Dictionary
by James Bovard

To bridge the gap between the nation’s capital and the American people, here is Washingtonese translated into the vernacular:

Principled — profitably pliable with pious pretenses

Historic — different than last week

Unprecedented — different than last month

The Libertarian Target
by Bryan Caplan

The puzzle: Why do high-profile thinkers keep energetically targeting such a marginalized viewpoint? As a self-conscious libertarian, I'm definitely not complaining. I welcome all the publicity, no matter how negative. But the publicity remains peculiar. What motivates the critics to attack libertarianism time after time?

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Part 21 and final
by Neil Lock

The analogy with cancer is, I think, a good one. For, just as cancer cells often don’t stop growing until the host dies, so the cancerous political state doesn’t stop growing until it has consumed its body politic. Just as cancer cells ignore messages sent to them by other cells, so do cancerous thinkers ignore what other people think or want. Just as cancer cells send out messages to other cells to confuse them into doing things against their and the host’s interests, so do cancerous thinkers spew out lies, scares and deceptions to confuse people into acting against their true interests. (They spew out lots of legislation to coerce people into acting against their interests, too). And, just as cancer cells fail to mature and grow up into roles useful to the host, so do most cancerous thinkers fail to grow up into productive, honest, useful members of society.

Scrap the Climate Change Act
by Ben Pile

The CCA mandated the creation of an expert panel to decide what the UK’s carbon emissions should be – the Committee on Climate Change. But, like most quangos, its bureaucrats were more interested in their own political ambitions than the public’s needs. Bemoaning the lack of popular support for climate policies, one CCC member, Professor Julia King, remarked that ‘we have a very selfish population’, and that enforcing ‘behaviour change’ should be a major part of the government’s strategy. Rather than finding technological solutions to climate change, King and others wanted to engineer obedience. The second reason for objecting to the CCC is that it allows technocrats to serve themselves, and legitimises their high-minded hostility to the public.

But the main reason to object to the CCA is that it reflects the growing tendency to hide from criticism behind the comforting certainty of scientific objectivity. The CCA has been an expensive failure, but its critics were dismissed as climate-change deniers. The real objective of the CCA was not to save mankind from the weather, but to save an exhausted political establishment from the public, and from democracy.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Part 20
by Neil Lock

But now, consider: What if we could make bottom up thinking the norm, rather than top down? Wouldn’t it encourage tolerance, individual freedom, the rule of honest law, respect for rights, economic progress and prosperity? What human being would not prefer these things to the results of top down thinking?

Trigger Warnings and Safe Spaces: The Campus Counter-Revolution
by Thomas L. Knapp

If there’s a defining difference in this creeping (and creepy) new campus conservatism with its trigger warnings, safe spaces, and demands that scary, challenging speakers be un-invited to address students, it’s not the speed with which new social norms (particularly those relating to sexual mores, sexual orientation and gender identification) are adopted, but the speed with which the new norms are deemed sacred, no longer up for debate or discussion.

This is the conservatism of China’s Cultural Revolution; western college activists are its Red Guards. They are not the crowd storming the Bastille. They are the crowd cheering around the guillotine. Their demand that society accept the social changes of the last few decades as set in stone and immune to challenge is fundamentally reactionary.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Part 19
by Neil Lock

The bottom up thinker values honesty. Indeed, honesty is one of the most important values in his entire stock. Not only does he prize truth and straightforwardness. Not only does he make efforts to understand right and wrong, to do only the right, and to treat people with civility. Not only does he aim to be conscientious and trustworthy. Not only does he seek to earn his living by work and trade, rather than to live off others by theft or deception. No; above and beyond all these, he always tries to practise what he preaches.

Liberty takes fight against mass surveillance to European Court
by Liberty

Liberty has filed an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights against the Investigatory Powers Tribunal’s ruling that UK intelligence agencies’ mass surveillance activities are legal.

Liberty is challenging the Tribunal’s December 2014 judgment that GCHQ’s Tempora programme – which sees the agency intercept and process billions of private communications every day – complies with human rights law.

The appeal also challenges the Tribunal’s finding that it is lawful for UK’s Intelligence Services to access data gathered in bulk under the mass electronic surveillance programmes PRISM and Upstream operated by the US’ National Security Agency (NSA).

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Part 18
by Neil Lock

To put all this another way. Users of the economic means have to do a decent job. For if they don’t, they will lose customers. So, the economic means is a bottom up approach. You have to give something in order to get something back. It’s a self-correcting approach, too: for the discipline of market competition will eventually weed out the lazy and the dishonest. And thus, the bottom up approach encourages economic progress and increasing prosperity.

But for users of the political means, there is no such discipline. Nothing beyond social pressure – and even this is frequently lacking – obliges them to be diligent or honest. Having reduced or eliminated competition, they can get away with delivering services wastefully, at low quality and often in a dishonest, politicized way. Theirs is a top down approach. The customers have no come-back, so they’ll just have to be happy with what they get.

What Evidence Would Persuade You That Man-Made Climate Change Is Real?
by William M. Briggs

Everybody out of love with any scientific theory should be prepared to say what it would take for amour to flourish. Just as everybody infatuated with a hypothesis should be able to state what would dim their ardor.

This does not only go for skeptics of global-warming-of-doom, but also for proponents. Tell us, if you dare, what would convince you that you’re wrong. I’m answering the question below, but I also insist you answer it, too. If your answer is of the form “Shut up”, “I don’t have to answer”, or “Your answer, Briggs, wasn’t to my liking, and here’s why”, as it is expected to be for many progressives, congratulations. You’re a True Believer. (Appell, I’ll even let you answer.)

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Part 17
by Neil Lock

The bottom up thinker comes to recognize that many of the moral rules passed down from ancient times are good and valid. For example, Confucius’ Golden Rule: don’t do to others what you wouldn’t like done to you. It’s also possible to derive some core rules from the Judaeo-Christian Ten Commandments. For example: Don’t commit aggressions. Keep your freely made promises. Don’t steal. Don’t lie or mislead.

But he recognizes, also, that many customs (mores) or traditions of particular cultures or religions – not eating pork, or not drinking alcohol, for example – are not part of the core ethics of civilized behaviour. For anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the religion or culture, these moral rules are optional.

The Law Is Not What It Says
by Timothy J. Taylor

In the final analysis then the law is what the Supreme Court of the United States says, except for the fact that it can change its interpretation of the law anytime it likes; the vote tally can, and often does, change from case to case. So the law still is not necessarily what it says. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The law is a crapshoot. Lawyers can argue and courts can decide that white is black and black is white.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Parts 15/16
by Neil Lock

The top down thinker, on the other hand, sees education, at best, as a process of preparing an individual for life in a particular culture. So, like the look-say trainer, the top down educator looks to stuff his pupils’ minds with information. He seeks to impart top down rote knowledge, rather than the tools which enable bottom up learning. And so, he is likely to turn his pupils into top down thinkers like him.

Miliband vs. Democracy
by The People's Pledge

2. Why is it “playing political games” to vote in a referendum on how Britain is governed by the EU, yet you don’t seem to take the same view about voting in an election on which party governs Britain - a contradiction, surely?

3. Couldn’t your entire case against holding an EU referendum, based as it is on opposition to one particular outcome, also be made against holding a general election – and where does that leave your commitment to democracy?

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Part 14
by Neil Lock

In contrast, top down thinkers advocate and admire a charade they call democracy; or in US-speak, Demahcracy. They like to set democracy up on a pedestal, and to make of it an idol to be worshipped.

In democracy, individuals may vote on which of a number of criminal gangs (political parties) they wish to direct a state for the time being. Then, there is a more or less complicated process of totting up the votes. This process determines which gang (or gangs) will have licence to “legally” oppress and exploit everyone for the next several years.

It’s obvious that this system entirely ignores the wishes of the minority. It does nothing at all for those who are alienated from politics, and feel that none of the political parties have any concern for them. And, the way the system operates, it usually ends up ignoring the desires of the majority, too.

Sean Gabb Named Lord Protector in Swift Military Coup
by Keir Martland

WIGAN – 10 April, 2015

At 11AM GMT, Dr Sean Gabb was named Lord Protector after a short meeting with the Queen. Dr Gabb, the frontman for this morning’s military coup, was invited to Buckingham Palace for tea and cakes only an hour ago. Dr Gabb declined the light refreshments, stating “Dr Atkins wouldn’t approve.” After this joke, the Lord Protector was invited to form a government.

At 11:05, Lord Protector Gabb was driven to Number 10 where he dismissed the entire Home Civil Service. Next, he granted his first interview as Lord Protector to the BBC, taking this opportunity to announce that he was taking it permanently off air as of this evening.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Parts 12/13
by Neil Lock

The bottom up thinker understands that all justly owned property comes, ultimately, from someone expending time and effort, either to create the property, to improve it, or to earn enough to trade for it. So for the great majority of us, who don’t receive big legacies from rich parents or uncles, all our property comes from our own time and effort, which we have expended in order to gain it. So, property is life. That is why property rights are so important. That’s why they mustn’t be violated. Ever.

The Sexualization of Libertarianism – A Manifesto
by Avens O’Brien

There is a saying I heard in college, that “communism works great in theory until you add people”. My more liberal friends love to tell me that “libertarianism works great in theory until you add people”, but they’re completely wrong. with people, because it is the only philosophy which recognizes people for their very natures. People are self-interested, they’re selfish and greedy and they want for themselves. They may want other things as well, but they are primarily concerned with their own survival and their own success. Libertarianism, by allowing for that fact, recognizes that each of us will pursue our own desires, and thus the moral imperative is simply that we step back when our desires conflict with another’s. My right to swing my fist ends where your body begins.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Parts 10/11
by Neil Lock

The top down thinker, on the other hand, often talks a good game about human rights. But in reality, he doesn’t care about others’ rights at all. He may support, for example, cameras on every street corner, or routine interception of people’s e-mails. He may want to control even the smallest details of others’ lives. He may agitate to restrict freedom of speech or assembly. He may support policies that damage the economy, or make it harder for people to find work. He may seek to re-distribute wealth and power from the honest and productive to himself and his cronies. Or to the lazy, or to the dishonest, or to the politically connected. And he wants, of course, to impose heavy taxation to pay for his evil schemes.

People are Wising Up
by Christopher Burg

Your masters want you to vote because that gives them legitimacy. The fewer people who vote the less legitimate their rule appears to be. This is why wonderful bastions of democracy like Australia and North Korea make voting mandatory.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Parts 8/9
by Neil Lock

In contrast, the top down thinker sees law as a tool, to be used by those in power to achieve their ends. So, legislation made by politicians is to be enforced, whether or not it’s right or just. And it doesn’t matter whether the motives behind legislation are good or bad, or whether it has bad consequences for innocent people.

So, the top down thinker finds it OK to subject people to political agendas hostile to them. Or to enrich or otherwise favour certain groups at the expense of others. Or to expand bureaucracy. Or to create perverse incentives to encourage people to support a Cause. Or to hurt people they don’t like, or who refuse to follow the latest politically correct fad. Or to victimize those who have earned success through their own efforts. Or merely for the sake of ordering people around.

The Right to Discriminate Against Ellen Pao
by Jacob G. Hornberger

Indeed, how can people in society truly be considered free if they’re not free to associate with whomever they wish to associate? And doesn’t the fundamental right of freedom of association necessarily entail freedom of non-association?

If Jane doesn’t approve of John’s hiring practices, she is free to decline to buy whatever his new business is selling. She also has the right to publicize John’s hiring practices and to persuade other people to boycott John’s business.

But Jane has no moral right to force John to hire her or anyone else. That’s because it’s his money and his business, not hers. Private property and individual freedom necessarily entail a right to run one’s business any way one wants

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Parts 6/7
by Neil Lock

The bottom up thinker wants to see each individual treated as he deserves. So, in his view, anyone who fairly and honestly earns good things has earned the right to enjoy them. “From each according to his abilities,” declares the bottom up thinker; “to each according to his deserts.”

He will, of course, be charitable towards those who are unable to earn satisfaction of their needs for reasons outside their control. After all, if you aren’t willing to help others when they are in need, you can’t reasonably expect them to help you when you’re the one in trouble. But he doesn’t feel that he owes any charity to those whose failure to earn is due to their own laziness or dishonesty.

The City of Scarecrows
by Jeff D. Opdyke

The town and its scarecrows have become Japan’s version of a looking glass, and the Japanese know this. They can see the future and they realize that, because of social and economic dogma, they’re on the path to extinction as a race, just as Nagoro is on the path to extinction as a village. And as callous at it sounds, there’s money to be made as Japan fades away.

On Bottom Up and Top Down Thinking - Parts 4/5
by Neil Lock

In contrast, the top down thinker wants to impose political correctness on others’ speech as well as on their thinking. Cleverly, this enables him to frame any debates so the other side find it hard to put their position. Furthermore, he likes to bombard others with politically correct sound bites, that help his side of any debate. This, I think, is why we hear so much rubbish about things like “democracy day” or “international womens’ day.”
