Exposing Judicial Postmodernism from a Voluntaryist Perspective
Victims of court corruption often ask me what I think should be done to repair this broken court system. On less cynical days, I offer suggestions - like live streaming every hearing in every case, or the Family Law Bill of Rights that I authored in 2020. But I have come around to the view that the court system will not be fixed because it is not broken. It is working just fine, by and for the people who set it up.
In one sense I am extremely pessimistic about our future. Nothing could be more obvious than that the so-called “founding fathers” never intended for “we the people” to have any rights, nor to be protected by any law whatsoever. The Constitution established a ruling class with unlimited power.
For a long, long time, and continuing right to the present, T.H.E.Y. have perpetrated an endless series of false flag operations designed to scare you out of your mind, so that giving up more and more of your natural self-ownership seems like a reasonable alternative to death. T.H.E.Y. appear to be 99% of the way done implementing global communism. Or call it socialism, fascism, totalitarianism, collectivism, globalism, democracy, technocracy, the new world order, the great reset, or slavery. Call it what you want.
A tiny group of corporation and government rulers control the money, the military, and the media. T.H.E.Y. control transportation, communication, and education. T.H.E.Y. have implemented all of the aspects of communism as envisioned by Karl Marx 170 years ago, including the central bank, public indoctrination, and the abolition of private property.
In academia, T.H.E.Y. have all but destroyed the Enlightenment’s scientific method based on logic and reason and replaced it with the nonsensical gibberish known as “Postmodernism,” in which truth and objective reality do not even exist. Rather, all we have are competing historical narratives among an endlessly expanding list of victim groups. Postmodernism is Marxism on steroids. This is why I dedicated my organization to exposing judicial postmodernism.
It’s frighteningly ironic that our Court system still swears witnesses to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth – a truth which our institutions of higher learning claim not to even exist.
If you care at all about your self-ownership, about the rights you once thought you had, there is plenty of cause for extreme pessimism.
However, in another sense, I am optimistic about our future, even more optimistic than I was 15 years ago when I spoke at Jim Fetzer’s 9/11 Scholar's conference in Madison. I closed my talk then by saying something similar to what I’m about to elaborate on now.
I am not afraid of whichever individual might aspire to become the next Hitler, or Stalin, or Mao, or Trump, or Biden, or Lincoln, or Pol Pot. Of course these are all psychopathic megalomaniacs, or at best, the puppet stooges of same.
But by themselves, we can handle a psycho. The most prolific private mass-murderers in history killed what? Maybe 30 people or so? Governments have killed at least 1000 times as many innocent people as all the private criminals put together. That's not counting war.
And T.H.E.Y. are supposed to be protecting us? Is that what the Court system exists for? Who is protecting us from T.H.E.M.? If I have demonstrated anything today, it is that T.H.E.Y. make up rules so T.H.E.Y. always win. It's like my childhood friend Scooter Ballou taking my lunch money with his game of TEGWAR, on a global scale.
It is not the psychopath that presents a danger. The problem is when millions of basically good people believe that the psychopath is their ruler, and they are obligated to follow his orders, even when their conscience tells them that the orders are wrong.
No, no, no. It’s not the psychopath that is the problem. It is the belief - your belief - in the psychopath’s authority that is the problem. What if the next Saddam Osama Stalin von Hitler Mao issued an order to start murdering all the dissenters, and everybody just laughed, knowing that neither he nor anybody else has the right to rule?
That’s what should have happened in 2020 when the governors of all 50 states deemed entire classes of people to be “non-essential” and ordered the businesses to shut down. Tragically, nearly everybody obeyed. Why? Because everybody has been brainwashed to believe that obedience is a virtue. It isn’t.
If you want hope, and optimism, please focus and hold on to this thought. Ready? The government does not exist. The “state” is just a state of mind. There is no such thing as the United States, or California, or the E.U. Geographic places exist, sure, but “government” and “law” and “authority” are just ideas that were planted in your mind. All your life you were taught that obeying authority means you are “good,” while disobeying means you are “bad.”
This is a terrible thing to teach children and it’s a terrible thing to believe as adults. Children should be taught the difference between right and wrong, and adults should rely on their conscience – not government laws - to guide their choices. When disputes arise, we must stop believing the government has any interest in resolving them fairly.
Legislators and Judges cannot, by the stroke of a pen, take something morally wrong and make it right, nor can T.H.E.Y. take something right and make it wrong. Remember, everything Adolph Hitler did was perfectly legal.
Owning slaves was never anybody’s right, even when it was legal. Using marijuana, if you wanted, was always your right, even when it was illegal. Right and wrong do not change. Your rights, starting with your right to self-ownership, are given to you by your creator, and they are unalienable. Once you understand and really embrace this, you will see there is no place for a coercive government. Either you own yourself, or somebody calling themself the government owns you. It has to be one or the other.
The good news… no, the great news is: You can stop believing in the government just like you can stop believing in Santa Claus. You realize it’s a fiction, and poof, it’s gone! The easiest first step is to stop voting. How hard is that? Stay home that day. What if they had an election, and nobody came? What if they had a war and nobody came?
I want to recommend a book that has been very influential on me. It is “The Most Dangerous Superstition” by Larken Rose. While I was a voluntaryist long before I discovered Larken Rose, I think he does the best job of explaining, in simple yet powerful terms, why the belief in government is literally insane.
One proof goes like this. While you can assign rights to another person, nobody ever had the right to tax their neighbor. Therefore, nobody could have ever assigned that right to government officials.
Another proof goes like this. Initiating force against another person is bad. The supposed justification for government is protection from those who would initiate force against you. But government is just people, and everything government does is done under the credible threat of force.
So, to stop people from initiating force, we give some people permission to initiate force. This is the insane delusion we have been programmed to accept.
To complete the indoctrination, we are supposed to believe that government is not actually people, but rather it is an imaginary “corporate person” that you can’t see, but who is all-good and all-knowing and who intervenes in the world to protect everyone from everyone else.
We have holy scripture, called a constitution, that speaks in riddles, and can only be interpreted by divine messengers in black robed costumes. If you violate the commands from on high, you will be punished. This is the deeply religious, faith-based belief system that is government.
I don’t mean to insult you, but it is time to grow up and start relying on ourselves to resolve our disputes, not the government Court system. We, all of us, need to shed our irrational belief that a mythical superhuman deity called government will take care of us. We instead need to take responsibility, and take care of ourselves. Whatever we want to do, we can do by forming strictly voluntary associations.
And if you wonder what “voluntary” means: Can you tell the difference between lovemaking and rape? Or the difference between giving a gift and being robbed? The only difference is that one is voluntary, and the other is coerced. Voluntaryism is the simple concept that all human interaction should be voluntary.
Everything will be better once we all stop believing that anyone has the right to rule. Government has added nothing but bad into this world. That was predictable in 1787 with a plain read of the U.S. Constitution, and there is no better evidence for this than the current state of the government Court system, a system where you have no rights, and there is no law.
