The PC-Free Zone

If God didn't want them shorn, He wouldn't have made them sheep


The path to True Enlightenment is paved with exposed lies, smashed taboos, and rejected guilt trips. Proceed with an open mind, and watch your step.





"In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

-- George Orwell


"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

-- John 8:32


Abandon all preconceptions, ye who enter here, for this is a page unlike any other. This is Transtopia's political section, a unique neutral zone where conservative and progressive, extreme right and extreme left, libertarian and authoritarian memes can peacefully coexist, for they all represent key aspects of the Transtopian worldview, and of reality itself. This is ideological purgatory, where reason is militant, and the truth merciless; where nothing is sacred, and no flesh is spared; where the soul is cleansed by Promethean fire. Depending on how heavily your mind is infested with the parasites of meekness and ignorance, the experience could be anything from slightly discomforting to outright unbearable. If you prefer your facts with a generous sugar coating, and take pride in your self-destructive weakness, this is not the place for you. Take the blue pill and leave.

In a nutshell, Transtopianism is about personal empowerment. Taboos, dogmas, and guilt trips are the enemies of personal empowerment, and are fundamentally incompatible with a reason-based worldview. Racial differences, colonialism, immigration, and anti-Semitism/the Holocaust, collectively known as the 'white guilt complex', are currently Western society's biggest, most dangerous taboos. As there cannot be true enlightenment and empowerment --and ultimately even survival-- without thorough taboo and guilt rejection, these (and other, lesser) 'politically incorrect' issues need to be faced head-on, deconstructed, and neutralized. That's what this page is about: putting things into perspective so that the truth may set you free.

Egalitarian political correctness is the enemy of Western civilization, and therefore also the enemy of Transhumanism. The latter can, after all, only exist and develop in a fairly liberal and technologically advanced culture -- Western culture. Supporting runaway leftist egalitarianism is no better than supporting religious fundamentalism, fascism, conservatism, or communism. All of these are irrational, dogmatic worldviews that (potentially) threaten our transhuman future, and should therefore be opposed with great fierceness. If not publically, then at least privately.

    Eugenics & Dysgenics

  • Prometheism A secular world religion based on voluntary eugenics, Libertarianism, and Transhumanism.

  • The NeoEugenics' Web Site "A NeoEugenics Perspective: Breeding an Improved Human Species Through Purposefully Directed Evolution by Any Means Available." Has a wealth of high-quality eugenics & race-related writings.

  • Future Generations "FG is about humanitarian eugenics. Humanitarian eugenics strives to leave a genuine legacy of love to future generations: good health, high intelligence, and noble character. We advocate measures to improve the innate quality of humankind which are entirely voluntary."

  • The ORION Initiative "An international, not-for-profit high-IQ membership association dedicated since 1996 to breeding and educating genetically-advantaged pioneers to the stars via elective-eugenics communities: intially on-planet, then subsequently as a 'one-stop staffing' resource for privately-funded industrial/R&D orbital colonies. . . all by the end of the 21st Century."

  • Reproduction Technology for a New Eugenics, by Glayde Whitney. Why eugenics is desirable and logical, anti-eugenic PC ('liberal') leftism is immoral and idiotic, and how new reproductive technologies will make eugenics a lot easier (and ultimately inevitable).

  • Woman and the New Race, by Margaret Sanger. Describes how mindless breeding is detrimental to women's health & social status, and how it corrupts society as a whole by 'making life cheap'. According to Sanger, women should take responsibility for, and action against, this situation. State-imposed measures like eugenics and sterilization might also help. This is an excellent feminist book(let) / manifesto of a refreshingly PC-free candor that you rarely see these days, and though written in the 1920's, the advice given is still relevant due to the persistence of reproduction-related (dysgenic) problems in many parts of the world.

  • The Pivot of Civilization, by Margaret Sanger. Another classic eugenics piece from the founder of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

    Racism, Multiculturalism & Egalitarianism

  • What is racism? Is bigotry and racism just a White Thing? By Thomas Jackson. Shows the hypocrisy of the 'anti-racism' movement.

  • Right and Wrong Racism, by Richard McCulloch. Discusses the varieties of racism, the different forms, motives and definitions and draws a distinction between the moral and immoral forms.

  • Virtue in 'Racism'?, by Raymond B. Cattell. "Modern society has pronounced its ethical condemnation of racism, but in the long run has met with little more success than in religion and in its condemnation of sex and aggression. It is time to recognize clearly that race-consciousness is a natural tendency, with which our socio-political life must come to terms."

  • Racial Differences -- Why They Matter, by William Robertson Boggs. To refuse to acknowledge racial differences is to court disaster.

  • The Greatness of Western Civilization, Edwin A. Locke, Ph.D. "The greatness of the West is not an 'ethnocentric' prejudice; it is an objective fact. This assessment is based on the only proper standard for judging a government or a society: the degree to which its core values are pro- or anti-life. [...] The core values and achievements of the West and America must be asserted proudly and defended to the death. Our lives depend on them."

  • Multiculturalism & Diversity: The new Racism An Objectivist critique of multiculturalist policies and political correctness in general.

  • Racial Denial In America Life & Politics In A Pavlovian Kennel "Compulsive acceptance of racial dogma. Conditioned reflex in dogs and men: How American politicians have been conditioned to Leftist fantasy on human equality and interchangeability. Negative consequences: School, Law Enforcement, Immigration, Family, Neighborhood--In the long term, for all; in the short term, for those supposed to benefit. A wake up call for America?"

  • Amy Biehl: A White Liberal on the Dark Continent Bleeding heart PC leftism taken to its logical conclusion -- death. The bit about Amy's parents befriending two of her black killers (released after having served just a couple of years because "the motive for her murder had been political") is especially poignant. As the article's author rightly points out, "such is the nature of anti-racialist idealism: It thrives on the most outrageous violations of normal human loyalties."

  • South African Nightmare "A stunning article appeared in the Daily Mail of October 30th [2001?]. Written by Ross Benson, reporting first-hand from Johannesburg, it lifts the lid on the near-collapse of South Africa since white rule ended a few years ago." Behold...the multiculturalist-egalitarian future! Suicide on a national scale.

  • From Economic Powerhouse to Rape Capital -- The Descent of South Africa, by John Morse. "The horrors of the 'New South Africa' are perhaps best encapsulated in the grudgingly disclosed facts concerning both the scale and the pattern of rape in the country [by often HIV-positive blacks!]. Whilst South Africa's ANC rulers bask in the insane adulation of the world's dominant 'liberal' establishment and its contrived 'international opinion', South Africa's women, of all races, endure a reign of criminal terror, violence and cruelty unequalled anywhere else - incidentally exposing yet again the self-contradictory nonsense of liberalism, which simultaneously demands the dethronement of the white race and its values and the protection of women's rights (something which in fact only Whites have properly understood and guaranteed)." Amen...

    Racialism & Science

  • Race is a Myth? The Left Distorts Science for Political Purposes, by Michael Rienzi. "Racial egalitarianism has failed to produce the 'fair and just' society promised by social engineers. At the same time, there has been a marked reawakening of racial and ethnic identity in the post-Cold War world. In response, the left has adopted a new strategy: Deny the very existence of race! This is why we so frequently hear that 'race is a social construct, with no biological validity' and that 'science proves we are all the same'. Ironically, it is in connection with progress in understanding the human genome -progress in the very field that will definitively prove the biological reality of race- that we most often hear that race is nothing more than 'superficial' surface characteristics."

  • Why Race Matters: Race Differences and What They Mean, by Michael Levin. Reviewed by Matt Nuenke. "Levin's latest book looks at intelligence, racism, cognition, and racial diversity. Michael Levin more than any other single author makes sense of what race means, how intelligence impacts our multiculturalism, what it means for the future, and why it is absolutely mandatory that Whites stand up and yell foul in the face of charges of racism and intolerance. Levin has a way of putting together the philosophical side of the race debate that makes him fun to read and a resource book for those needing ammunition against Marxists and naive environmentalists."

  • Why Race Matters in Sports, by Jon Entine. It is sometimes said that because humans supposedly share 99.9% of their DNA, 'race does not exist', and that 'we're all equal'. Well, humans and chimps share somewhere between 95-98% of their DNA; does this make us 'practically chimps', or chimps 'almost our equals'? Not quite. The devil, and racial differences, are in the details. "Differences are grounded in gene sequences and proteins and are activated by (sometimes obscure) environmental triggers."

  • Race, Socioeconomic Variables, and Intelligence: A Review and Extension of The Bell Curve, by Edward M. Miller, PhD. "The Bell Curve's major findings regarding the importance of intelligence for economic success and social success are summarized, as is its demonstration that racial differences in intelligence help explain the racial disparities in economic success and social pathologies. Its treatment of eugenics, the genetic basis for racial differences, and the evolution of racial differences is extended."

  • Race, genetics, and human reproductive strategies, by J. Philippe Rushton. "It is time to end the relative neglect of theorizing about racial differences in behavior. International data show a distinct pattern. Asians and Africans average at opposite ends of a continuum that ranges over 60 anatomical and social variables, including brain size and testosterone, with Europeans intermediate. The pattern can be explained adequately only from a gene-based evolutionary perspective. If all people were treated the same, most racial differences would not disappear. This does not mean that environmental factors are unimportant for individual development. But, to deny or obfuscate the reality of a genetic basis for racial differences, as so many critics of the race concept have done, does not change reality."

  • The Color of Crime -- Race, Crime, and Violence in America. (a report on 1994 crime statistics), courtesy of The New Century Foundation. Major findings: 1) There is more black-on-white than black-on-black violent crime. 2) Of the approximately 1,700,000 interracial crimes of violence involving blacks and whites, 90 percent are committed by blacks against whites. Blacks are therefore up to 250 times more likely to do criminal violence to whites than the reverse. 3) Blacks commit violent crimes at four to eight times the white rate. Hispanics commit violent crimes at approximately three times the white rate, and Asians at one half to three quarters the white rate. 4) Blacks are twice as likely as whites to commit hate crimes. 5) Hispanics are a hate crime victim category but not a perpetrator category. Hispanic offenders are classified as whites, which inflates the white offense rate and gives the impression that Hispanics commit no hate crimes. 6) Blacks are as much more dangerous than whites as men are more dangerous than women. All in all, a much-needed reality check!

  • Race and Crime: An International Dilemma, by Philippe J. Rushton. Some interesting theories & facts regarding (biological) racial differences and their relationship with criminal and generally "anti-social" behavior.

  • The IQ Illusion: Why Racial Differences Aren't Obvious, by Lawrence Auster. "The intellectual differences between blacks and whites are both substantive and qualitative -- in short, there are intrinsic racial differences in civilizational abilities."

  • The G Factor - The Book and the Controversy, by Prof. Edward Miller. A fine example of PC hysteria and the power of the race/IQ taboo. The book itself can be downloaded (for free) here.

  • Antiracism and Moralizing Gods, by Matt Nuenke. "Right empiricists try to argue with Left empiricists using scientific methods, but the debates go in circles. No matter how many studies are supplied, the Left just calls the Right racist and ignores the data. This article tries to shed some light on how far the Left has slid into a religious dogma that makes debate meaningless - it has little to do with truth and everything to do with the Left's personal agenda to make society submit to new moralizing gods."

  • ADL's Survey of Anti-Semitism, by Matt Nuenke. "This very short article on how surveys are distorted by social scientists, advocates, and academics with an ideological agenda, is a good example of how racism, antiracism, diversity, etc. are defined in such a way that the target group is always found to suffer some new pathological disorder."

  • Egalitarian Fiction and Collective Fraud, by Linda S. Gottfredson. "Social Science researchers have contributed to the myth that there is no difference in intelligence levels among different racial and ethnic groups. Some researchers ignored significant data because it did not fit into the accepted belief of genetic equality."

  • The Racial Profiling Myth Debunked, by Heather Mac Donald. "The anti-racial profiling juggernaut has finally met its nemesis: the truth. According to a new study, black drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike are twice as likely to speed as white drivers, and are even more dominant among drivers breaking 90 miles per hour. This finding demolishes the myth of racial profiling. Precisely for that reason, the Bush Justice Department tried to bury the report so the profiling juggernaut could continue its destructive campaign against law enforcement."

    Slavery & Colonialism

  • The Truth About Slavery "Many hundreds of thousands of White people were slaves in early America. In fact, White slavery was not only extremely common, but until the late 18th century it was far more common than Black slavery here. Also little known is the fact that living and labor conditions for Black slaves, bad as they often were, were usually far better than those for White slaves."

  • New Book Reveals Extent of White Bondage on Barbary Coast "A new book by an Ohio State professor reveals that a million or more Europeans were enslaved by pirates from North Africa between 1530 and 1780. Robert Davis’s Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast, and Italy, 1500-1800 (Palgrave Macmillan) pioneers in treating as a unity three centuries of slave raids by North African corsairs on European shipping and on coastal centers from Italy to Iceland, and its author finds that the equation of slavery with white 'racism' is belied by the extent and persistence of white slavery in the Maghreb during that period. Davis’s figures are necessarily estimates, given the lack of surviving data, but Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters will bring important new evidence to the debates over slavery, racism, and reparations."

  • Some Truth About Slavery A short article about 'Adanggaman', a fairly revolutionary movie about slavery directed by an African from the Ivory Coast, Roger Ngoan M'bala. "Slavery was not caused only by white traders, it existed even before the arrival of the whites. The Negro kings, who enslaved other black people, made the bondage of their own sons possible in the New World." Sure beats that Kunta Kinte BS, see also below.

  • Alex Haley's 'Roots': Fact or Fiction?, by Thomas Sowel (who's black himself, incidentally)."It was not that 'Roots' merely got some details wrong. It presented some crucially false pictures of what had actually happened -- false pictures that continue to dominate thinking today. [...] Slavery, like cancer, was not limited to any particular country or race. To talk about cancer as if it were an American disease, or a white or black disease, would be absurd. If reparations were to be paid for slavery, everybody on this planet would owe everybody else."

  • Apology for Slavery Will Perpetuate Racism, by Robert W. Tracinski. "An apology for slavery on behalf of the nation presumes that whites today, who predominantly oppose racism, and never owned slaves, and who bear no personal responsibility for slavery, still bear a collective responsibility -- a guilt they bear simply by belonging to the same race as the slave-holders of the Old South. Such an apology promotes the very idea at the root of slavery: racial collectivism."

  • Blacks And The Politics Of Racial Extortion Will It Work Forever? By Fred Reed. "I think blacks are too accustomed to getting anything they want by just demanding it. True, it has worked for over half a century. Get a few hundred people in the street, implicitly threaten to loot and burn, holler about slavery, and the Great White Cash Spigot turns on. Thing is, whites don't much buy it any longer. Most recognize that what once was a civil-rights movement has become a shakedown game. Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies of blacks. Political correctness keeps the lid on--but everyone knows the score." Yup, the Fredster once again kicks some serious boo-tee. Straight up!

  • Why Is Africa Poor?, by William R. Boggs. "The standard explanations blame anyone but the Africans. Colonization by whites, it is said, kept Africa poor. The slave trade depleted the continent and impoverished it. Multinational corporations plundered it. Just as blacks in America seek to explain their own failings by blaming them on whites, Africans explain their own poverty by blaming Europe." Third world countries are -generally speaking- the way they are because of the people who live(d) there. Ditto with Western countries. The failure or success of a region ultimately reflects the (in)competence of its inhabitants, simple as that. It's essentially a genetic thing. Until people, and especially the Africans themselves, realize (or rather accept) this, and start taking some serious eugenic measures, there can be no substantial improvement.

    Immigration & Overpopulation

  • Fairest Things Have Fleetest Endings: The Camp of the Saints reviewed by Samuel Jared Taylor. "Mr. Raspail's powerful, gripping novel [about mass 3rd world immigration and the downfall of the civilized world] is a call to all whites to rekindle their sense of race, love of culture, and pride in history--for he knows that without them we will disappear."

  • Camp Of The Saints Comes True In France. Let's Stop It Happening Here, by Donald A. Collins. "While the Mainstream Media seem not to want to emphasize exactly who is responsible the horrendous violence rocketing around France, these alienated French 'youths' are immigrants, mainly Moslem. [...] Importing cheap labor, not allowing the time for cultural assimilation, crowding people into poverty in close proximity to the good life of most Frenchmen, has proved to be a dangerous and short-sighted policy -- but one which many countries, including the US, seem determined to follow. "

  • Immigration's Real Victims "All American groups suffer because of immigration while their corrupted politicians play the violin and delay necessary actions..." By Samuel Francis. The pro-immigration 'movement' is basically an informal monster coalition of such diverse interest groups as the (RC) Church (which seeks to replenish its dwindling flock at all costs; poor, backward immigrants tend to be more religious than the richer and more civilized 'natives'), employers (who want cheap labor at all costs), politicians (who seek re-election at all costs; 'grateful' immigrants will vote for them, and fatcat industrialist lobbies will fund their campaigns -- or so they hope), and Leftist 'intellectuals' (who want to 'deconstruct' Western society & culture and create a multi-racial, multicultural 'utopia' at all costs).

  • FAIR - The Federation for American Immigration Reform Detailed information on how mass immigration is changing America, and how and why it should be stopped. A top resource for anyone interested in American immigration issues.

  • Negative Population Growth "NPG is the leader in the movement for a sound population policy and advocates a smaller and truly sustainable population through voluntary incentives for smaller families and reduced immigration levels."

  • Wave of anti-Muslim legislation in Europe has broad support "Ten years ago, only European fringe parties forthrightly opposed mass immigration from the Muslim world. Today, thanks to the success of such nationalist parties as the National Front in France and the Danish People’s Party, and the popular outrage that has enabled it, many European leftist and liberal politicians are scrambling to get on the bandwagon." Well, let's just hope it's not a case of "too little, too late"...

  • Scotland’s First Minister Calls for More Immigration (see also this and this article). "To believe First Minister Jack McConnell, who leads Scotland’s devolved government, Scotland needs eight thousand immigrants a year over the next five years, and a staggering 635,000 over the next twenty, if it is to maintain its 'age balance' and continue to be competitive, pay for pensions, and the like. Scotland, as part of the United Kingdom, is limited in making its own immigration policy, but the country is able to advertise for immigration and offer limited benefits. McConnell, a member of the Labour Party who exhorts that 'We must all be ambitious for Scotland' is talking publicly of recruiting immigrants from Eastern Europe, but in practice he will draw his new Scotspeople predominantly from Chinese, Pakistanis, Iranians, and North Africans already in England." When will those clueless fossils understand that automation, not immigration is the solution to aging-related (as well as practically all other) problems? Unchecked immigration will only hasten the collapse of the Western world.

  • Don't believe the hype: Europe's fake crisis over immigration and aging, by Jonathan Power. "According to a forecast by the UN's chief of population statistics, Joseph Chamie, if the present low German birth rate continues and immigration is zero, Germany's population will fall by over half by the end of the century. And if that happens, who is going to pay for the pensions of the present aging workforce? 'Europe must now prepare to open its doors', the Financial Times responded in a recent editorial. [...] But a trend, we should know by now, is not a final statement. After years of a dramatically falling birthrate, Sweden now exhibits signs of a reverse. Italy, Germany and Spain are introducing incentives that will encourage couples to have more children. In Britain and France the decline in population is happening more slowly and could probably be reversed with the same kind of encouraging policies that the Scandinavian governments have fashioned." The article then goes on to mention that most unimaginative of solutions, 'raising the retiring age'. Oh yes, what a marvel of progressive thought: breed more & work longer (and harder), while earning less. "And let's bring them Christian Values back as well while we're at it", you can almost hear them think. No thanks! While this may not be quite as bad as the Leftists' "let's flood the West with 3rd world immigrants" delusion, it's still a repulsive non-solution. 'Repulsive' because it perpetuates the repressive and outdated Arbeit über Alles wage slavery meme, and 'non-solution' because in reality the outsourcing of jobs to low-wage countries would continue, making the West increasingly feeble and dependent, struggling to care for its growing numbers of unemployed -- and unemployable. Even with draconian anti-outsourcing and other protectionist laws, Western nations would sooner or later be outcompeted and outbred into oblivion, crushed like eggshells by the sheer numerical superiority of rising superpowers like China and India. No, only advanced automation can save the West. More than just 'save', actually'; it turn it into a high-tech, virtually crime, work, and poverty-free, economically autonomous paradise that can more than hold its own in the world of tomorrow.

  • The Church of Euthanasia: Save the Planet - Kill Yourself. The One Commandment: "Thou Shalt Not Procreate." The Four Pillars: suicide, abortion, cannibalism & sodomy! Runaway environmentalism taken to its logical extreme...

  • U.S. Census Bureau's World Population Clock Tick, tick, tick...Though overpopulation per se may not become a 'terminal' problem as some 'experts' claim (only when combined with unchecked immigration can it seriously threaten the West), it certainly wouldn't hurt to reduce the world's population by, say, 50 or even 70%. Not randomly, of course, but eugenically. And no, this 'final solution' would by no means have to include mass killings; the eugenically unfit -who, almost by definition, live in misery anyway- could simply be sterilized. In return for this 'sacrifice' (it's a blessing, really, especially for women) they could be given some kind of (financial) compensation, even cryopreservation when they die (the same technologies that will be needed for revival will also, via space colonization and mind uploading, make overpopulation as we know it a moot point). Sexual freedom, cash, potential immortality...and all of this for (merely) giving up the so-called 'right' to make bad copies of oneself; copies which, in all likelihood, would only deepen one's poverty and general misery. Now this is a damn sweet deal if there ever was one! Better than most people deserve, in fact.

    Hate Crime

  • Society must punish the crime -- not the thought, by Scott Holleran. "The punishment of murder is justice. The punishment of murderers for their thoughts is totalitarianism."

  • I'm Angry, Because I Hate Hate-Crime Legislation, by Lance Morrow. An essay from TIME.com on the absurdity of 'hate-crime' legislation. Pretty good for such a mainstream publication.

  • Hate Crime Premise "Hate Crime equals Thoughtcrime and Winston Smith, the protagonist of 1984 would recognize it." Hate Crime legislation would be bad enough if it were enforced in a neutral, objective, and consequent manner, but -of course- in reality it's almost exclusively applied when the (alleged) perpetrator is a straight white male, and the victim a member of a "sexual or ethnic minority group" (while in fact blacks, who are usually stereotyped as helpless victims of "hate crimes", are twice as likely as whites to commit them). Once again, Leftist PC hypocrisy in action.

  • Hate Crimes: I Wonder Why The Protected Groups All Vote Democratic, by Fred Reed. Why the continuing effort to expand laws against hate crimes is not good for either the police or the country.

  • The Trouble With Hate-Crime Laws, by Richard Cohen. "We are creating laws that instill the notion that the worth of an individual is dependent on the group to which he belongs."

  • Increasing "Hate Crime" Punishment Violates American Principles -- Generic penalties are more than sufficient. "In their book, Hate Crimes: Criminal Law and Identity Politics (Oxford University Press), law professor James Jacobs and lawyer Kimberly Potter dissect and challenge the rationale for 'hate crime' legislation. Here is some of what they have to say."

    Gun Control

  • Gun Owners of America (GOA) "The only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington." According to the socialist/liberal crowd, self-defense is almost as "ugly" as "racism". Well, screw 'em! The right to keep and bear arms should not be infringed, period.

  • Women Against Gun Control (WAGC) WAGC and its chapters work in conjunction with other pro-gun organizations in legislative research and lobbying campaigns through such means as petition gathering, letter writing, and direct involvement in electoral politics. They testify before legislative committees on matters relating to the right of gun ownership, are active in tracking and reporting on legislation at all levels of government which impacts on the right of gun ownership, and encourage and help promote firearms instruction and gun safety training, among other things. Quote: "An increasing number of women are concluding that, when it comes to an encounter with an attacker, 'Guns are a girl's best friend.' The reason is simple: Guns are the great equalizer. Guns give women a fighting chance. Whether a woman is physically fit or not, a gun is the one thing that can equal a man's strength." Damn frickin' right!! It is one of the great ironies of our time that women, who generally benefit most from the 'equalizing' power of guns, also tend to be the staunchest and most vocal supporters of gun control. That's about as smart as cutting off your own hands -- or balls. It's a repulsive sort of sanctimonious, ignorant, cowardly, and ultimately self-destructive victim mentality. Profoundly un-sexy, too, if you care about that sort of thing. And as for men who oppose the right to keep and bear...well, they're either fags, criminals, or (wannabe) dictators.

  • Self-defense: a basic human right One of the best pro-gun/right to keep & bear sites on the web; beautifully made and action-packed with intelligent, compelling arguments against gun CTRL. If (effective) self-defense isn't a basic human 'right', then what the hell is??

  • Guns, Crime, and the Swiss, by Stephen P. Halbrook, Ph.D., J.D. "Although there is more per capita firepower in Switzerland than any place in the world, it is one of the safest places to be. To the delight of Americans who support the right to keep and bear arms, Switzerland is the proof in the pudding of the argument that guns don't cause crime. [...] The bottom line is one of attitude. Populations with training in civic virtue, though armed, generally do not experience sensational massacres or high crime rates (note: a country's ethnic composition may also be a significant factor, see for example Rushton's Race and Crime article). Switzerland fits this mold. But the United States does not. As H. Rap Brown declared in the 1960s, 'Violence is as American as apple pie.'" This article seems to suggest that the USA, being an inherently violent country, really needs (more) gun control. It may be an old cliche, but it's true just the same: gun control primarily harms law-abiding citizens, not the criminals, who will simply buy their guns on the black market -- as many, if not most, already do. Where there's demand, there will always be supply. Many (mass) shootings happen not because too many people own and carry guns, but rather because too few do. Columbine and similar incidents could only happen because the gunmen were like wolves among sheep -- being the only ones with guns, they could slaughter people with almost god-like impunity. Had others been armed, they would probably have stopped them 'dead' in their tracks, or at least slowed them down a bit. Indeed, the attacks might have never occurred in the first place; going on a bloody rampage just ain't that much fun no more when your intended victims actually shoot back at you. Fight fire with fire, and guns with (more) guns. Well, and with personal and public, near-ubiquitous automated surveillance systems, among other things, but that's another story...

  • Police fear they are losing control of gun-crazy Britain, by Tony Thompson, crime correspondent for The Observer. Britain, with its almost complete ban on privately owned guns, should be some kind of virtually crime-free paradise according to the gun control lobby's logic. Nothing could be further from the truth; illegal guns proliferate, and violent crime is on the rise. Like the War on (Some) Drugs, the War on Guns has proved a miserable failure. Indeed, the WOD, together with irrational immigration policies, is largely to blame for Britain's gun-related problems, as this BBC article clearly (though perhaps unintentionally) illustrates.

  • Canada blames U.S. for gun violence "Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and Toronto Mayor David Miller warned that Canada could become like the United States after gunfire erupted Monday [Dec. 26, 2005] on a busy street filled with holiday shoppers, killing a 15-year-old girl and wounding six bystanders -- the latest victims in a record surge in gun violence in Toronto. The shooting stemmed from a dispute among a group of 10 to 15 (black, gang-bangin') youths, and the victim was a teenager out with a parent near a popular shopping mall, police said Tuesday. [...] The escalating violence prompted the prime minister to announce earlier this month that if re-elected on January 23, his government would ban handguns. With severe restrictions already in place against handgun ownership, many criticized the announcement as politics. [...] John Thompson, a security analyst with the Toronto-based Mackenzie Institute, says the number of guns smuggled from the United States is a problem, but that Canada has a gang problem -- not a gun problem -- and that Canada should stop pointing the finger at the United States." Indeed, this has little to do with guns, and everything with the insane War on Drugs and deeply flawed immigration & minority management policies.

  • Boxing Day shooting in Toronto -- Your Letters Interesting public feedback regarding the above-mentioned incident. Predictably, there's the usual lefty bleeding heart idiots clamoring for even stricter gun control and/or blabbering on about 'racism', but there are also a surprising number of common sense, no BS replies. For example: "Well you can blame it on guns, and you can blame it on politics and you can blame it on poverty. The real blame lies in our open immigration policy. We have opened our doors to people who come from countries where crime runs rampant, there is little regard for human life, and tribalism is ingrained into their cultures. What did we expect? Did we expect that our gracious hospitality was going to change all that instantly? If we want to save our country from more of the same, we must take a close look at out immigration policy. One country isn't going to solve all of the world's problems by opening her arms to anyone who wishes to come here to hide, plan terrorist activities, plot revolutions, traffic drugs and shoot wildly amongst families out spending time together." And: "Toronto has a gang problem, not a gun problem. It seems to me its time to arm the honest people, not take away their last means of defense. We can't rely on the authorities to protect everybody, they are spread too thin, and the courts let the bad guys go before the cops finish the paperwork." And there's a lot more where that came from! Good to know that there are still some people with balls and brains out there, even in a sissy fag lefty PC liberal country like Canada...

  • Criminals dodge laws by buying stun guns on the net , by Tony Thompson, crime correspondent for The Observer. "Figures obtained by The Observer show that in the past year the number of handguns seized by Customs and Excise at ports and airports has fallen by half, while the number of stun guns has almost doubled. The weapons, which incapacitate victims for up to 15 minutes, are officially classed as firearms, but have become increasingly popular with muggers and robbers as they are highly effective but cause no permanent damage." Oh, the horror!! Criminals are arming themselves with non-lethal weapons (as opposed to the guns, clubs, and knives they'd normally use). This, of course, has to be stopped immediately, before -god forbid- someone doesn't get seriously hurt! But wait, it gets even better: "Possession of stun guns was made illegal in Britain after one was used to rob a postman." WTF?! Can anyone say 'hysterical overreaction' / 'lame excuse'? "Although there have been no fatalities involving their use in this country, they have caused at least 30 deaths worldwide." Assuming this info is actually correct, which is somewhat doubtful (for example, did the stun gun directly contribute to the person's death, or was it just 'somehow' involved in the incident -- and where does this 30 p figure come from, anyway?), it's a totally negligible amount if you consider that these devices must have been used millions of times by now. They're a lot safer than cars, kitchen implements, hair dryers...hell, just about any tool or machine, let alone weapon. They're called 'non-lethals' for a reason, ya know! Sheesh!

  • Cities Target Gun Makers in Bogus Lawsuits More people are killed by cars; more children drown or die in fires. By John R. Lott Jr., author of More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws. "Allowing the court system to ignore a product's benefits to society is bad enough. Yet even worse is the cynical attempt to file bogus lawsuits and use taxpayers' dollars to impose massive legal costs that render it infeasible for defendants to defend themselves."

    Lawyerism & (In)justice

  • Parasites At The Gate, by Steven J. Milloy. A short but sweet piece about the insane War on Tobacco, greedy lawyers & government officials, and where all of this may lead. "The parasites have gotten a taste of blood in the tobacco wars. It's time to stop them before they infest the rest of the economy. Joe Camel today, the Pillsbury Doughboy tomorrow."

  • The Brass Knuckles Guide to the American Lawyer, by John Hawkins. The article is humorous, but the underlying issue isn't; lawyers are essentially parasites. Unlike for example doctors, builders, and scientists, they contribute absolutely nothing (useful) to society, but only feed off of it and benefit from its weakness --an inherently flawed legal system-- in a most destructive manner. Just like an organism's state of health can be judged by the number and kind of parasites that prey upon it, so can a society's state of health be judged by the number and kind of human parasites it sustains. High numbers of lawyers and bureaucrats are a sure sign that a society is in pretty bad shape, perhaps even terminally ill; that its legal system and general bureaucracy have become bloated, inefficient, self-serving, needlessly repressive, and rotten to the core. A reasonable, liberal, technologically advanced justice system would no longer need slick-talking legal 'experts', gullible, capricious, and prejudiced juries, and arrogant, biased, ivory tower judges. The rules would be so simple and logical that just about any retard could understand them, and guilt or innocence would be determined by means of forensics, high-tech lie detectors, and near-ubiquitous public (state-owned & controlled) and private (citizen-owned & controlled) surveillance. Sounds and images would be continuously fed into secure, searchable databases, and the system would use facial recognition and (other) intelligent software to spot wanted criminals and potentially criminal behavior in realtime. Randomly selected panels of forensic and other experts would judge the evidence, checking whether it meets the strict criteria for a guilty verdict, and if so a computer would then hand down a standard offence-bound sentence. No more drama in the courtroom, no more lengthy, expensive, frustrating, and humiliating trials -- cool, swift, systematic reason would -finally- be in control.

  • The Rule of Lawyers -- How the New Litigation Elite Threatens America's Rule of Law, by Walter K. Olson. "This is the most alarming book about abuses of our legal system. Olson isn't just talking about too many lawsuits and outrageous jury awards. He tells how secretive, greedy, hypocritical, corrupt class-action lawyers have conspired with state attorneys general, politicians, and fellow travelers in the mass media to destroy what's left of a rule of law."

  • Overlawyered.com "Explores an American legal system that too often turns litigation into a weapon against guilty and innocent alike, erodes individual responsibility, rewards sharp practice, enriches its participants at the public's expense, and resists even modest efforts at reform and accountability."

  • Pro-death penalty.com "This site is being developed as a resource for those searching the internet for pro-death penalty information and resources." There is nothing inherently 'barbaric' about capital punishment; it is simply fair and logical to execute a murderer. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life. Proportional retribution; that's what the scales in Lady Justice's hand are all about (and she ain't wielding that sword just for fun, either). To execute someone for a relatively minor or even outright victimless crime, on the other hand, is of course very much barbaric, and is a sure sign that there's something very wrong with the society in question. Incidentally, so is a prison system where inmates are randomly subjected to (sometimes lethal) violence and abuse at the hands of guards and their peers -- more on that below. Also, it must be pointed out that while there's nothing wrong with [the idea of] executing murderers, few, if any currently existing nations can be deemed competent and civilized enough to actually enforce capital punishment. Hell, they can hardly be deemed competent enough to send someone to jail, let alone execute him. Only a highly rational, high-tech, swift justice system that uses hard forensic evidence, ubiquitous, automated video and audio surveillance, DNA and fingerprint databases, sophisticated lie detectors and 'truth serums', randomly selected teams of rigorously scientific experts, and a refined, precedent-based system of standard sentences rather than hearsay, crooked cops, forced confessions, plea bargains, overpaid lawyers, ignorant juries, whimsical judges, endless appeals, and 'trial-by-media' can be entrusted with the power of life and death. In other words, while the concept of capital punishment deserves our support and approval, the reality of capital punishment most certainly doesn't.

  • Are they lying? Functional MRI holds the answer, scientists say "Four regions of the brain are more strongly activated when a person is lying than when he is telling the truth, according to images captured at the Health Science Center's Research Imaging Center (RIC). [...] Dr. Gao said he believes the brain activation seen in simulated lying will strongly, if not perfectly, model the activation in non-simulated lying. 'I believe fMRI will come to play a bigger role in lie detection', he said. 'Eventually, it could help the FBI and police to establish the truth in many court cases.'" Ah yes, IUSTITIA EX MACHINA -- justice from the machine! A very Transtopian concept indeed...

  • The Truth Machine, James L. Halperin. A visionary novel about a 'perfect' lie detector, and the profound effects it would/could have on society. "Once perfected, the Truth Machine changes the face of the world. Most lawyers find themselves looking for new, productive jobs as crime, violent behavior, and court cases are eliminated, virtually overnight. Individuals are truth-tested for civil litigation and mediation. Political candidates must be perfectly frank, no longer relying on popular opinion polls or harboring hidden agendas. Refusal to submit to the Truth Machine brands a politician un-electable. Through a series of simple questions, the Truth Machine can diagnose mental illness with astonishing success. As its use spreads from courtroom to politics, to diplomacy, business, science, education, and finally into every home throughout the world, the Truth Machine reshapes the very nature of humanity."

  • No Escape: Male Rape in U.S. Prisons Rape and violence in general among inmates are a major problem in prisons around the world, and America is by no means an exception. As is often the case, the least guilty (such as petty thieves and 'drug offenders') are hit hardest, while the truly violent and ruthless criminals thrive. A few simple, straightforward measures such as 1 inmate per cell, no (involuntary) physical contact between inmates -- ever, minimal and strictly monitored physical contact between inmates and guards, separate facilities for violent and nonviolent offenders, racial segregation, ubiquitous video and audio surveillance, and generally a high level of automation could solve practically all abuse-related problems and greatly reduce the inherently unjust element of randomness within the penal system. That this so far hasn't happened (at least not on any significant scale) is a testament to the callous hypocrisy of both the government and the people. Also, it shows the emptiness of the bleeding heart libs' anti-death penalty rhetoric. The relative handful of (presumably) erroneous executions are a fairly trivial issue compared to the rape, abuse, and murder that happens routinely in American (etc.) prisons. Most of the world's legal systems --with their brutal, senseless persecution of victimless crimes, abject incompetence and indifference when it comes to dealing with real crimes, bloated, self-serving bureaucracies, medieval-esque jury trials, ivory tower judges, and inhuman prisons-- are, in effect, morally bankrupt and deserve nothing but contempt.

  • Prison Rape @ Everything2.com "Estimates are that there are 135,000 [male-on-female] rapes occuring every year in the United States, and many people believe there's more. However, every year, the number of male prisoners sexually assaulted in prisons in the United States is estimated to be as high as 290,000 - and groups like Stop Prison Rape put the number as high as 600,000 a year. Estimates are used because so few victims are willing to report the rape - due to the inaction of the prison officials, and the retribution from other prisoners. Also, the Federal Bureau of Prisons lumps all assults together - they keep no seperate record of sexual assaults."

  • Stop Prisoner Rape SPR seeks to end sexual violence committed against men, women, and youth in all forms of detention. "The horrors experienced by many young inmates, particularly those who are convicted of nonviolent offenses, border on the unimaginable. Prison rape not only threatens the lives of those who fall prey to their aggressors, but it is potentially devastating to the human spirit. Shame, depression, and a shattering loss of self-esteem accompany the perpetual terror the victim thereafter must endure."

  • Prison Rape Resources: The Zero 5.0laf - The Official Website of Andrew Vachss.

  • Salon News - Rape as a Disciplinary Tactic Prison guards often ignore inmate rape, and even encourage it to punish prisoners who step out of line.

  • Innocence Project Northwest "IPNW is a non-profit group of attorneys, professors, and students working to free innocent prisoners. The efforts of IPNW attorneys and law students have helped to free 11 innocent prisoners since 1997. As many as 10 percent of inmates in the United States may be factually innocent of the crimes of which they were convicted, according to the National Institute of Justice. That's as many as 200,000 innocent people languishing in American prisons. This is a national problem." No shit!! Yes, a rotten system indeed, as mentioned above... As a general (civilized) rule, it's better to let a guilty man walk than to convict an innocent. When in doubt, don't convict. 'Justice' should never become a blind quest for retribution, or a cynical quota hunt.

    War on Drugs & Food Supplements

  • StoptheDrugWar.org: The Drug Reform Coordination Network "The Drug Reform Coordination Network was founded in 1993 and has quickly grown into a major national and global network including parents, educators, students, lawyers, health care professionals, academics, and others working for drug policy reform from a variety of perspectives, including harm reduction, reform of sentencing and forfeiture laws, medicalization of currently schedule I drugs, and promotion of an open debate on drug prohibition." Though often seen as a typical 'conservative' thing, the 'War on (Some) Drugs' is generally supported by both sides of the political spectrum. At best the Democrats and leftists occasionally pay lip service to legalization, but more often than not they firmly support the current repressive drug policies. As with most of society's problems, one should keep in mind that the ignorant, short-sighted masses are really to blame here, not the opportunistic politicians and pseudo-fascistic three-letter government agencies. They only give the people what they want and, in a way, deserve. Why are so few politicians openly pro-abolition? Well, most probably don't give a fuck either way, or perhaps they're assholes who like repression for its own sake, and some may even profit financially from the WOD, but apart from that being openly pro-abolition is, more often than not, tantamount to political suicide. In other words, it means that if you are liberal regarding the drug issue, people generally won't vote for you. If the masses really wanted abolition, there would be no stopping it. Most politicians are whores who will do just about anything to get (re-)elected. They have no principles, ideals, or original opinions whatsoever -- power and status are the only things that count. If the bleating sheeple want to dig their own mass grave, they'll gladly provide them with shovels.

  • Bureau of Justice Statistics: Prison Statistics Straight from the horse's mouth..."On December 31, 2001, 1,962,220 prisoners were held in Federal or State prisons or in local jails." 22% or so of these were held for "drug-related offences". Ah yes, 'Land of the Free...'

  • Drug Policy Alliance "The nation's leading organization working to end the war on drugs and promote new drug policies based on science, compassion, health and human rights."

  • Judges Against the Drug War "For the past thirty years Judges have looked on as America's War on Drugs has played itself out before their eyes. They have seen the inevitable increase in police powers and erosion of civil rights needed to facilitate the investigation of drug offenses. They have witnessed the widespread, unprecedented use of asset forfeiture. And they have been forced to impose unjust mandatory minimum sentences. They're finally speaking out."

  • The November Coalition "The November Coalition is a non-profit, grassroots organization who are educating the public about the destructive increase in prison population in the United States due to our current drug laws. We are a growing body of citizens whose lives have been gravely affected by our government's present drug policy. We are prisoners, parents of those incarcerated, wives, sisters, brothers, children, aunts, uncles and cousins. Some of us are loving friends and concerned citizens, each of us alarmed that drug war casualties are rising in absolutely horrific proportions." Indeed, the WOD and the barbaric prison systems in which its countless victims languish represent crimes against humanity on par with those perpetrated by various 20th-century totalitarian regimes, and those responsible should all be punished according to the enlightened "an eye for an eye" principle. In other words, their reputations should be utterly destroyed, their possessions confiscated (and used to partially compensate their victims), and they themselves should be locked up in cramped, filthy cells with AIDS & Hepatitis-infected rapists, madmen, and murderers. They should only be fed disgusting, unhealthy mush. They should constantly be verbally and physically abused 'till they weep with frustration and seriously consider suicide. They should be gang-raped by sturdy negroes 'till they bleed, and then raped some more while the guards look on in amusement. Finally, when they're raw, diseased, and half-insane from all the abuse, they should be thrown naked into small, dark concrete boxes, and left to rot in their own blood and excrements. That, and only that, would be true justice.

  • Ephedra - Straight Up, by Shane Ellison M.Sc. "Seriously, are we so brainwashed by television that we believe law makers are protecting us when they work to ban natural plants such as ephedra? Of course we are!" Needless to say, the recent all-out Ephedra ban is complete & utter bullshit. Not just because, when you look at the statistics [*1], there is no real 'Ephedra problem', but, more importantly, because such bans represent a disgusting kind of paternalistic, meddlesome attitude that robs people of their freedom, dignity, and sense of personal responsibility. It turns them into braindead sheep.
  • FDA Begins Crackdown on Supplement Andro (CNN) Friday, March 19, 2004. "Federal officials announced Thursday a crackdown on the supplement andro, which gained fame after baseball player Mark McGwire used the product in his record-setting 1998 season. The Food and Drug Administration said that manufacturers of andro products will have to cease production unless the makers can prove it is safe. Although andro is not a steroid and is marketed as a dietary supplement, the FDA said the health risks are the same." [etc.] Holy escalating repression, Batman! Again, this is total fucking bullshit. A pathetic, lame excuse for further infringement of basic freedoms. Hardcore hypocisy, too. And still the sheep remain silent... Pass the KY!

  • European Directive Against Vitamins & Minerals "First 300 key vitamins and minerals axed, now 5,000 supplements banned by 'insane' EU Directive. Sam Burcher reports on the right to freedom for the £1.6 billion alternative health industry." Different continent, same problems. Ignorance, opportunism, and cowardice join forces in an orgy of repression. These kinds of deplorable policies violate basic human rights, inflict needless suffering upon millions of supplement users, and could even cost lives. Those responsibe for this abomination are either retards or callous scumbags, and should be treated accordingly.

  • Hands Off Vitamins and Herbs "Visits to Complementary Alternative Medicine practitioners throughout Europe outnumber those to doctors by two to one. Government figures show UK citizens spend £70 million per year on nutritional supplements and about 20% of the population use vitamins and minerals in their diets. But European Parliament Directives passed in March 2002 will ban food supplements, in a bid to re-classify them as medical drugs." Another alarming report by Sam Burcher.

  • The Worst Crime of the 20th Century, by Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD. "Drug companies and the WTO [are] determined to control dietary supplements through Codex and international trade agreements in their global quest for power. Why is this happening? Simply because most of the world does not use modern medicine and the 'powers that be' want to control those other forms of medicine to make way for a seamless, worldwide assembly line-style of health delivery by government decree favoring the highly-profitable, patented products and services of modern (allopathic) medicine."

    Copyright & Piracy

  • Against intellectual property From Information Liberation, Challenging the corruptions of information power by Brian Martin, Freedom Press, London 1998. "There is a strong case for opposing intellectual property. Among other things, it often retards innovation and exploits Third World peoples. Most of the usual arguments for intellectual property do not hold up under scrutiny. In particular, the metaphor of the marketplace of ideas provides no justification for ownership of ideas. The alternative to intellectual property is that intellectual products not be owned, as in the case of everyday language. Strategies against intellectual property include civil disobedience, promotion of non-owned information, and fostering of a more cooperative society."

  • Justice Dept. wants new antipiracy powers October 12, 2004. "The U.S. Justice Department recommended a sweeping transformation of the nation's intellectual-property laws, saying peer-to-peer piracy is a 'widespread' problem that can be addressed only through more spending, more FBI agents and more power for prosecutors." Ah yes, time for another pointless, immoral 'war on...'. Instead of wasting resources on lost causes, the world's governments should invest heavily in (and otherwise stimulate) automation, with the explicit aim of creating a workfree, moneyless leisure society. With guaranteed high living standards for all citizens, the financial element would be removed from the copyright equation, thus making the whole issue moot. In the meantime, copyright laws should only be enforced in cases of blatant, financially oriented theft. The small fish, including people who rip MP3s and such, should be left alone, period. Don't feed the fatcat lawyers and industry bosses, just say 'no' to copyright.

  • Shocked and amazed by copyright history By Eliot Van Buskirk. "Technological advances have dogged content owners ever since a caveman first got conked on the head for ripping off the other guy's yawp.

"Sony BMG said it has temporarily stopped manufacturing music CDs containing a controversial copy-protection program after several Internet viruses took advantage of the software to attack computers. ...

Sony BMG has been on the run for almost two weeks with the public relations debacle of its XCP copy-restriction software, which has installed an exploit-vulnerable rootkit with at least 20 popular music titles on PCs all over the world."

    Abolition of Work

  • The Abolition of Work, by Bob Black. The abolition of work, though hardly as emotionally charged as, for example, the race debate, is nonetheless something of a taboo. Both the Left and Right have a tendency to glorify work (jobs), while in fact it's a primitive and degrading way to make a living. See also:

  • CLAWS - Creating Livable Alternatives to Wage Slavery What few (usually lefty) anti-workers realize is that advanced automation is the best, and indeed the only realistic and sustainable solution to the problem of wage slavery. Ex machina libertas! Let machines do all the dumb (and not so dumb) work, they're much better at it anyway. Incidentally, automation would also take care of the immigration issue; cheap foreign labor would no longer be required, which means that there needn't be any more ambiguity regarding the actual enforcement of strict immigration laws. These laws would obviously be needed to protect the new 'work-free' welfare state from structural overload; even automation has its limits, and you can't just invite the whole world in and support them all -- never mind the general culture clash that usually accompanies mass immigration. It is suicidal to accommodate hordes of people from backward, sometimes outright barbaric cultures, who envy the West's wealth, sophistication, and power, but openly despise the natives and their ('decadent', too 'liberal' etc.) way of life. Immigration is -or rather should be- a privilege, not a 'right', and if a guest abuses his host's hospitality, he should be swiftly returned whence he came. That's the rational approach to such matters.

  • The U.S. Basic Income Guarantee Network "The basic income guarantee (BIG) is a government insured guarantee that no citizen's income will fall below some minimal level for any reason. All citizens would receive a BIG without means test or work requirement. BIG is an efficient and effective solution to poverty that preserves individual autonomy and work incentives while simplifying government social policy. Some researchers estimate that a small BIG, sufficient to cut the poverty rate in half could be financed without an increase in taxes by redirecting funds from spending programs and tax deductions aimed at maintaining incomes." BIG, combined with widespread automation (absolutely essential!), drastic downsizing of the bureaucratic apparatus, legalization of victimless crimes, as well as some other progressive measures could create a prosperous, civilized, and technologically advanced 'welfare state'.

  • Basic Income Europe Network (BIEN) "Founded in 1986, the Basic Income European Network (BIEN) aims to serve as a link between individuals and groups committed to, or interested in, basic income, i.e. an income unconditionally granted to all on an individual basis, without means test or work requirement, and to foster informed discussion on this topic throughout Europe."

  • Better than people: Japan's humanoid robots Why the Japanese want their robots to act more like humans. How xenophobia can be a positive, transhumanistic force. The future could very well belong to Japan and other technologically progressive (Asian) countries that favor automation over immigration. Low wage / 3rd world immigration is in effect modern slavery [sometimes literally, see for example this and this article]. It is a short-sighted, luddite non-solution that creates more problems --crime, chronic poverty, financial parasitism, (re-)introduction of various diseases, ethnic tensions-- than it solves. Automation is the path to a work-free paradise; unchecked low wage immigration is the path to poverty, technological and social stagnation, terrorism, and potentially even racial and religious civil war (the recent French riots could very well be the shape of things to come). Of course, none of this is mentioned in this rather condescending, PC article...

  • Christianity Versus Women, by Julia Hernandez and Al Seckel. "Many Christians claim that their religion has raised women from a state of degradation to a higher level of equality. Nothing could be further from the truth. Throughout its history, the Christian religion has deprived women of their right to be treated as equal human beings. [...] The inferior status endured by women under Judaism and later under Christianity is a logical result of the Bible's sexist attitude towards women. Throughout the Bible there is a clear-cut inequality between men and women. Men are considered more important, more useful, more valuable, and wiser than women. The woman's role is to remain silent, obey her husband, and to bear and bring up children. She is to support her husband in all of his decisions. Women are not permitted to have any authority over men. The biblical ideal is always the submissive woman."

  • The Pornography Plague, by Kerby Anderson. "Pornography is tearing apart the very fabric of our society. Yet Christians are often ignorant of its impact and apathetic about the need to control this menace." A fine example of theistic anti-porn hysteria. While it's true that porn tends to be somewhat degrading from the model's perspective, it isn't nearly as degrading and oppressive as the Abrahamic religions. The Bible is pretty explicit regarding the position and role of women in the grand scheme of things, and it's a far cry indeed from the Transtopian ideal of balanced partnership; of mentally and physically strong, yet also beautiful and feminine women who don't take crap from anyone. Women who automatically get the respect they deserve, for they radiate strength and natural, offhand authority. This is the kind of woman real men desire; only cowards, primitives, and misogynistic degenerates would prefer a meek, neurotic, frail, pitiful creature that silently runs the household and bears one child after another (the Judeo-Christian-Muslim ideal).

A fetus clearly isn't a person in the usual sense; it's just a mindless clump of cells that might eventually grow into a sentient individual. Getting rid of it is no worse than killing a worm or some similar lowly animal, and certainly can't be called 'murder'. Indeed, one could even argue that babies aren't persons in the usual sense, and that therefore their mothers (not the fathers; they didn't create them) should be allowed to kill them if so desired. When exactly a child would cease to be its mother's 'property' and become an individual --a recognized and protected member of society-- would inevitably be a somewhat arbitrary decision (1 year? 2 years? When it can pass some kind of 'sentience test'?), of course, but the status quo with its generally harsh treatment of infanticide is definitely not the answer.

  • Planned Parenthood "Founded in 1916, Planned Parenthood is the world's largest and oldest voluntary family planning organization. Planned Parenthood is dedicated to the principles that every individual has a fundamental right to decide when or whether to have a child, and that every child should be wanted and loved."

  • Emergency Contraception Website, operated by the Office of Population Research at Princeton University. Emergency contraceptives are methods of preventing pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. See also this emergency contraception factsheet (Emergency Contraception: an important and underutilized contraceptive method), courtesy of NARAL Pro-Choice America.

  • Our Opinions About Abortion Includes Not All Women Want to be Pregnant & other interesting writings on the pregnancy/abortion issue.

  • The Artificial Womb The article is about a primitive prototype, but within 30 years or so this might be the standard means of procreation in civilized countries (it certainly beats the traditional way of doing it!). Assuming mankind, and the flesh in general, lasts that long, of course...

  • Alternatives to Marriage Project "The Alternatives to Marriage Project (AtMP) is a national nonprofit organization advocating for equality and fairness for unmarried people, including people who choose not to marry, cannot marry, or live together before marriage." You've embraced childfreeness? Good! Now it's time for the next logical step: reject the archaic, oppressive social institution called 'marriage'.

  • To Marry, Or Not? (That's Easy!), by Fred Reed. "In an age when neither sex economically needs the other, in which women do not need protection from wild bears and marauding savages, not in the suburbs anyway, perhaps marriage doesn't make sense, at least for men. The divorce courts remove all doubt. A young fellow might do well to stay single, keep his DNA to himself, pick such flowers as he might find along the way, and live his life as he likes."

  • Marriage and Love, by Emma Goldman (from: Anarchism and Other Essays, ca. 1911). The popular notion about marriage and love is that they are synonymous, that they spring from the same motives, and cover the same human needs. Like most popular notions this also rests not on actual facts, but on superstition. [...] Marriage is primarily an economic arrangement, an insurance pact. It differs from the ordinary life insurance agreement only in that it is more binding, more exacting. Its returns are insignificantly small compared with the investments. In taking out an insurance policy one pays for it in dollars and cents, always at liberty to discontinue payments. If, how ever, woman's premium is a husband, she pays for it with her name, her privacy, her self-respect, her very life, 'until death doth part'. Moreover, the marriage insurance condemns her to life-long dependency, to parasitism, to complete uselessness, individual as well as social. Man, too, pays his toll, but as his sphere is wider, marriage does not limit him as much as woman. He feels his chains more in an economic sense." Oldskool, but still quite relevant (especially in non-Western regions).

  • Divorce Source "A legal resource for divorce, custody, alimony, and support." Don't be a fool; just say 'no' to marriage.

  • The Physics and Chemistry of Love, by Kanika Goswami. "Love, like all things bound to the universe, is non existent without some amount of physics and chemistry attached to it. As a scientist cynically pointed out, cupid’s arrows would never have been effective if they had not been first dipped in one unromantically named chemical- phenylethylamine." Up one level: time to take a critical look at the --only too often disempowering, and potentially dangerous-- drug called 'love'.

  • Romance Dissected More chemical info, short & sweet.

  • The Selfish Gene: Second Edition, by Richard Dawkins. "Our genes made use. We animals exist for their preservation and are nothing more than their throwaway survival machines." Sex, love, bonding, procreation, 'altruism', and much more explained from an evolutionary perspective.

  • An Introduction to Sexually Transmitted Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet. Sex isn't particularly safe, and neither is the dating / mating game in general. A plethora of disgusting, potentially fatal diseases, emotional upheavals, and jealous, violent morons awaits ye!

  • JackinWorld "The Ultimate Male Masturbation Resource." Fuck mating; masturbation can be just (or almost) as good as the 'real' thing, without all the hassles. The thinking man's (and woman's, see below) choice.

  • Clitical.Com Ditto, for the ladies.

  • Free Penis Enlargement "Obviously you're curious. Is it really possible to grow a bigger dick? What's it like? How do you do it? Here you'll find simple, straightforward, and honest information to help you decide whether it's for real or not, and get started on PE (penis enlargement) if you choose to." Great site, highly recommended. No scams, no pop-ups; just the straight dope from a streetwise wanker. Both masturbation and regular sex are more enjoyable with a giant cock...

  • National Sexuality Resources Has links to a broad selection of sexual topics, including some rather obscure ones.

  • Stop the Bleeding "Menstruation in modern times is unnecessarily unnatural and unhealthy."

    Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide

  • Fast Access (Euthanasia.cc) "Probably the world's largest resource of original material on voluntary euthanasia, assisted suicide, self-deliverance, living wills (advance declarations to enable you to refuse unwanted life-prolonging treatment) and related death and dying subject matter."

  • ERGO - Euthanasia World Directory Website of Hemlock Society Founder Derek Humphry "Euthanasia Research & Guidance Organization (ERGO) holds that voluntary euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, and self-deliverance, are all appropriate life endings depending on the individual, medical, and ethical circumstances."

  • World Federation of Right to Die Societies Ensuring Choices for a Dignified Death "The World Federation, founded in 1980, consists of 38 right to die organisations from 23 countries. The Federation provides an international link for organisations working to secure or protect the rights of individuals to self-determination at the end of their lives."

  • End-of-Life Choices. "We work for the freedom to choose a dignified death and for individual control concerning death. We support the right of terminally ill, mentally competent adults to hasten death under careful safeguards."

  • Voluntary Euthanasia "The entry sets out five individually necessary conditions for anyone to be a candidate for legalised voluntary euthanasia (or, in some usages, physician-assisted suicide), outlines the moral case advanced by those in favour of legalising voluntary euthanasia, and discusses six of the more important objections made by those opposed to the legality of voluntary euthanasia." The '5 individually necessary conditions' are unnecessarily restrictive (though understandable in the context of the article), but the section that discusses and refutes the 6 major objections is quite good.

  • Power over Pain How to Get the Pain Control You Need Pain / mood control is, in many cases, preferable to (assisted) suicide and euthanasia, at least initially.

    Miscellaneous PC-Freeness

  • The PC Primer: What is political correctness? Not quite serious, but nonetheless reasonably accurate.

  • Upstream A home for the intellectually heterodox, the politically incorrect and other independent thinkers. They have reading lists, book reviews, original essays, commentaries, information about interesting and useful organizations, an excellent mailing list and links to other Net resources.

  • Stalking the Wild Taboo "These pages, named after a book by Garrett Hardin, are for socio-political thinkers unfettered by submission to the power of the pejorative. Such labels as racist, fascist, communist, and reductionist have little power here. If you are interested in exploring the important issues of the day without the limiting fear of words or labels, then consider yourself our honored guest."

  • The Birdman.org John 'Birdman' Bryant's infamous real free speech site. "Not for the conventional, the timid, the prudish, the pious or the politically-correct!" Damn right! Intelligent comments on all the usual PC-related topics, and then some. John Bryant is a pretty enlightened individual, and he knows it!

  • Fred On Everything 'Commentary With Moxie', by Fred Reed. Deals with various PC issues from a no-BS, common sense perspective.

  • The Occidental Quarterly (TOQ) A Journal of Western Thought and Opinion.

  • The Occidental Herald "TOC is a unique digest of urgent news for supporters of the culture of the West and its peoples. Twice weekly TOH presents and comments on stories from international news sources on world events and trends that are often neglected in the national and local media. TOH aims to instill a sense of informed purpose in the defense of the West to counter the prevailing, media-inspired atmosphere of anomie and gloom."

  • AlterMedia World wide alternative news network for people of European descent.

  • The Heretical Press Covers a myriad of 'controversial', obscure, and outright weird topics.

  • Issues & Views "The hard copy edition of this newsletter was founded in 1985 by black Americans who advocate self-help and business enterprise and the protection of constitutional rights. It is a forum for dissidents, conservatives, and plain old mavericks--all those who are concerned about cultural decline and the erosion of our constitutional liberties."

  • AntiMuse "Intended as a literary journal for those who don't like literary journals, we present an irreverent, too-smart-for-those-around-us world view."

  • Organ Selling "A website dedicated to ending the organ shortage and the attendant needless suffering and death each year of thousands of prospective organ transplant patients simply by allowing monetary compensation for cadaveric organs, which will greatly increase the supply."

If Allah didn't want them slaughtered, He wouldn't have made them sheep...
