Wolfe: Beginnings of 'Creative Disregard'

Please read Ms. Wolfe's latest, along with the embedded links:

In Praise Of "Bad Attitudes"

Life and Death in the Obedience Culture

The Bad People ultimately fear one thing above all others:

Irrelevance.

Make them so.

I don't think they fear irrelevance, they fear bankruptcy. Want to really challenge the Boss, organize against the overlooked sources of revenue like school levies and liquor licenses. Easiest way to put local governments back in their place. Remember that all politics is local.

Some of the best writings I have read in a long time.
I went to YouTube and watched the Andrew Meyer arrest and tasering. It wasn't even the college student tasering that I was thinking of. That one was the guy in a university library who didn't show his ID on demand. Zzzzttt.
Meyer asked EXCELLENT questions that needed asking.
I notice that people applauded when the police surrounded him, because he was BREAKING the RULES, being RUDE by hogging the microphone and asking embarrassing questions of one of the Elites. That was disturbing. It's always disturbing when someone asks the hard questions THEY should have asked. It makes the obedient nervous.
I heard one woman question the police as they tasered Meyer and he screamed. God bless her.
On the larger picture, like Claire and I always say, live free every day. If enough people ignore the Powers That (Shouldn't) Be, we will break them.
When you stand up, you will stand out. But soon there'll be a crowd of fellow freedom-lovers surrounding you.

I just wasted a few minutes of my life reading "Life and Death in the Obedience Culture."

Arthur Sliber comes off very much as just one more garden-variety Internet uber-libertarian.

Another way to say "garden-variety Internet uber-libertarian" is "someone dreadfully impressed with himself, who spends way too much time playing the rugged, individualist manly hero in his own personal psychodrama."

But what do I know? I'm just another slavish, obedient sheeple....

No seriously, go count for yourself in the Sliber piece.

Besides the Hannah Arendt essay, Sliber links to essays that he's written at least 13 times in that one essay.

Not only does he link to at least 13 essays he's written, he references himself in the first person so many times that I finally gave up after counting the 13 self-referencing links.

I didn't hear Sliber say anything about how he intended to replace the culture of support. Giving a child a spank or two does not turn them into sheep. It helps them become adults who understand and accept the idea that they should keep their hands off others and their property. Without some modicum of discipline, mankind is nothing more than a roving mob of gangs bent on drunkeness and pillage. Too much discipline makes men that way also. The balance is struck when men are given an education, and a little time to think it over. Once called "Parenting". Logic is a study that can prevent cannabilism, but tempered with acceptance of the idea that man is not perfect, it becomes civilization, which the continuation of requires a few "rules". Too many rules and you have to start over. Where we are now. To those who have fought for it, life has a flavor the protected never know.

It's wonderful to see the illusions fall away and the actual truths of politics shining through. A government differs from a mob protection racket because a government is justified and disguised by a theocracy. It may be a civic theocracy, where the all-powerful all-knowing radiant vision of perfect government blesses the fallible human legislature and executives, just like God was said to have divinely appointed the King to rule for him on Earth.

For the first time since ancient Egypt, a significant fraction of the the middle class may be realizing they don't need a pharaoh to make the meanings of their lives for them.

Hell, I've been a disciple of "creative disregard" for years...just didn't know it had a name. Don't really care for the government and operate outside of it as much as I can.
