Refusing a Search is a Right, Not a Provocation

The first step to achieving personal anarchy, as I see it, is to change my mentality -- my mode of thought. I have not "...empowered 'the police' to protect my rights..." Any police. Anywhere. I do not expect dangerously armed bureaucrats claiming possession of a phenomenon called "jurisdiction" to do anything other than attempt to interfere with what "natural rights" I might think I have. I prefer use of the term "choices under natural law" to keep my head clear from that inevitable swim back into the comfort of collectivist boilerplate -- but you suit yourself.

Radley Balko writes some good stuff. But he is no anarchist. He believes police should be nice, good folks. Not. There is no way they could be. There is a natural degradation present in all monopolies. Monopolies can only come about by psychopathic interference in what should be a free marketplace. As I commented in a recent post:

    When all participants of a "system" are psychopathic, feeding from the same nose-bag, free from competition -- and are allowed (by your neighbors and friends -- hopefully not you) to

    • Make the laws,

    • Enforce the laws,

    • Prosecute the laws,

    • Hire the prosecutors,

    • License the “defense” attorneys,

    • Pay the “judges”,

    • Build the jails,

    • Contract jails out to private entities,

    • Employ and pay the wardens,

    • Employ and pay the guards,

    • Employ and pay the parole officers,

    One can't honestly call it a "justice" system. It's a system of abject tyranny.

Abstain from beans, my dear friends. For the sake of justice.

Don't empower the bastards by voting. Sam
