The Hate of the Right and Left

We hear it all the time: " I'm a conservative" or "I'm a liberal", "rightwinger", "leftwinger", etc. In general these terms do define so called "progressives" and so called "conservatives". However, these terms do not adequately describe or unveil the ideology of hatred, envy and malice behind both of these philosophies. In this essay we will examine both. Before we do let me inform you, the reader, that as a libertarian I reject both the "right" and the "left" because they are both wrong. They are wrong about human nature, they are wrong about government, and they use force, fear and fraud to obtain their "heaven on Earth". Let us examine first the philosophy of the left.

Leftists, which generally include communists, socialists, democratic socialists, environmental groups, and Trotskyites, proclaim a love of mankind, and wish to free him from subjection by the "capitalist class". When examined closely this philosophy is full of hate, envy, malice and domination. Leftists either consist of wealthy elites that feel guilty about their own success or men of little success who wish to penalize, and punish those who have been successful. In the early 20th century when the Bolshevik Revolution proclaimed a "new man" would be built in the newly conceived USSR it was a lie. Instead, an Old World despotism ( that of the tyrannical Czar) was reinstituted, along with the bureaucracy, to enslave and dominate the Russian masses. Forced confiscation of land and property, collective farms (serfdom), secret police ( the NKVD, modelled like the Czarist secret police), and a huge standing military were established to lord over the populace. These Marxist intellectuals claimed to be doing all of this in the name of the people. What they really did was reinstitute the former hierarchial society under new slogans, titles and names. The new aristocrats were the Communist Party bureaucrats and Kommissars, both of whom were at the top rung of this despotism pyramid. At the top was the executive officials of the Party, the Politburo, and the pinnacle was the dictator, the Chairman of The Communist Party. What about the mass of the people, you might ask? At the BOTTOM of the pyramid. Slaves, and serfs living in subhuman conditions just like under the Czar with laws designed to keep them powerless and ignorant. This structure was recreated in every communist run nation from Eastern Europe to Southeast Asia and China.

In reality leftists are motivated by a love of power, domination and hierarchy, no matter what their slogans and speeches say. Freedom of Speech, religion, person, are non-existant. Protections against unreasonnable searches and seizures, the right to counsel, and individual liberty are codified in law in a farcical manner. These rights are never respected because individuals live for the collective, the Party, and never for themselves. Living in such a society is much like living in a secular Hell. Constant fear, ignorance, and brutality are the norm. Curfews, militarism, and and "thought police" are everywhere. This is the Communist ideal of a just society. Hate is constantly promoted. Hate of the capitalists, hate of "hooligans", hate of religion and it's believers, hate of the individual, hate of "enemies of the state", hate of the "class enemies", etc are daily infused into popular thought. That said,now let's move onto the hate of the right.

Rightists, are also made up of power hungry individuals who desire power, domination, hierarchy and slavery for the masses. Rightists usually consist of militarists, religious fanatics, secular bureaucrats, and corporate leaders. Most rightists are motivated by hate of the poor, minorities of any kind, anyone who is not suffciently patriotic, and anyone opposed to their religious belief or outlook. Rightists are also the offspring of the Old World. They are the children of the Old nobility, monarchies, and religious priests of the Middle Ages. These are the type of men who would have supported the Spanish Inquisition, and who to this day support imperialism. Rightists also enjoy a political pyramid that keeps them in power. The nobility consists of the corporate leaders who do the government's bidding, professional government bureaucrats, miltary nobles (the officer class), and at the top the executive branches consisting of the departments of the central government. Who is at the bottom, you ask? Of course the general population, the middle classes , the poor, minorities, and the average everyday man. I must add the term "minorities" does not just mean people of color. Homosexuals, prostitutes,and people who use drugs are also targets of right wing rage against "immorality". Also in most of America, white males and whites in general are assaulted by the establishment and abused as racists. This is done by the establishment to divide and conquer the populace. Most, if not all races fall for this trap. This race baiting keeps emotions inflamed, hate burning, and the people distracted.

Right wingers are, like their leftist cousins, promoters of hate. This hate is directed against "nonbelievers", atheists, homosexuals, poor and downtrodden, and "nonconformists",and those who speak out against the government. This hate is motivated by their own insecurities of self worth, sociopathy, sadism against the weaker, and delusions of domination.

As one can see these two ideologies are ideologies of death, hate, and self abasement. Individuals don't matter, the tribe, the collective, the hive, is supreme. The people mean nothing. The elites of both ideologies establish a hierarchial scoiety to dominate, control, and consolidate their own power.
As O' Brian, Winston Smith's torturer in 1984 related to Winston " Power is not a means, Winston, it is an end." This is the philosophy of the right and left.

Needless to say both of these statist ideologies exist to transfer the wealth and fortune of productive people ( the bulk of the American people) to the non-productive people ( statist government bureaucrats, favored corporations, and the government parasite class). A great run down of the "class struggle" is on " The Nation of Liberty" website run by Peter Brow. The URL is It is a great article.

All in all, the "left" and "right" are full of hate. Hate of humanity is what drives their ideologies. Rightwingers are generally arrogant hypocrites who constantly espouse "morality" and "family values" while living lives of debauchery and luxury. Leftists are also arrongant hypocrites since they espouse "tolerance" and denounce "racism" yet are really race baiters and haters. They promote "group rights" and "multiculturalism" which divide and segregate people into different racial castes and tribes.

Dear reader, reject these ideologies of malice, envy and hate. Instead embrace liberty, freedom, prosperity and compassion. Embrace libertarianism, the only philosophy that tells you that you own your life. Libertarianism is the only philosophy that tells you to live for yourself, enjoy life and respect the rights and lives of others. If you join me, we can walk down that path together.

Americans, Liberty, and the Blue Pill

Trinity :" It is the question...Do you know the question?" Neo:" What is the Matrix?"

I am convinced that Americans have taken the Blue pill. They are hopelessly plugged into the system. Dependent on the system for their very lives, they mindlessly continue along without open mindedness, and independent thought. Americans are not only unable to see the truth while stupified by the system, they do not wish to see it. Seeing the truth, the truth that they are slaves, is not something easy to come to grips with. Taking the blue pill is the easy way out. Taking the red pill, the pill of enlightenment is an act of courage. Americans today, much like in the movie the Matrix, live in a dream world. They live superficial and managed lives at the behest of forces they cannot quite put their finger on. They know there is something wrong with their country, they just aren't sure what it is.

Television, talk radio, sports, Hollywood, gossip magazines, etc are all the modern day version of the gladiator games of ancient Rome. Most Americans cannot conceive of life without TV, radio and other forms of artificial "entertainment". Instead of unplugging, most Americans would rather indulge in alcoholism, drug addiction, entertainment addiction and stimulation, organized sporting events and other mundane mindless activities. These actvities do not stimulate the mind, nor do they encourage critical thinking. Instead, these activities cause people to use the most primitive part of the primate brain. Visual and physical stimulation, while normal to enjoy as human beings, have now become the primary organizing factor of the modern man. What is important is not liberty, freedom, self government, individual sovereignty, but what mindless entertainment is going to fill up space in their minds. This mindset is exactly what the elite of the world want. They want you braindead, idiotic, unable to think , and easy to lead.

When you turn on the TV you are seeing a series of images that the corporate/government/media complex wants you to see. Have you ever noticed how most modern police or spy shows depict government officials as benevolent, caring and doing the best for their people. In reality we know this to be a lie. Governments, rightwing, leftwing, "democratic", totalitarian, and religious have been engaged in the systematic domination of the bodies and minds of individuals since societies organized into nation states, empires and kingdoms. Modern despotism is now much easier for the destroyers of freedom. Mass media, government/ corporate propaganda, militarism and "trust" of government leaders has given more and more power, dominance and manipulation to the tyrant. Now modern man is his own worst ememy; the destroyer of his own liberties.

As a libertarian I cannot conceive that mankind are "depraved" or that "original sin" require the supression of indiviudal liberty and independent thought. I reject the notions of organized religion that man is a beast incapable of governing himself. I also reject the view of Hobbes that man's life is " nasty, brutish and short". Man, in my opinion, is not inately depraved. Mankind consists of individuals of varying degrees of morality and behavior. Some are immoral, evil and destructive of their fellow men ( mostly in governments), and some are kind, compassionate, honorable and respect the rights of their fellow men. Some are a mixture of both. Collectivism, despotism, cruelty and brutality are what corrupts and degrades a society. Collectivists claim that man needs strong government to make them obey "proper" authority, and ensure morality. This type of government is what creates and propagates depravity in man. Prison camps, torture, destruction of civil liberties, and mass murder are the results of collectivism of both the right and left. To maintain their power over their people, governments use propaganda, modern day entertainment, and religion for social conformity and control. In essence, they are encouraging you to take the blue pill.

My advice is unplug from our modern day "Matrix" and reject the blue pill, and instead, take the red pill. Wake up, tune in, and tune out your oppressors. Freedom awaits you.
