Why the Libertarian Party needs to be the party of the Digital Economy more than of anything else

spending-bitcoins

Bitcoin and its competitors, the epitomes of currency in the Digital Economy.

If the LP Emphasized being the Party of the Digital Economy, it would have destroyed the 2-party system during the 2016 election.

Here, I have a lecture to give about why my party (I am registered to vote in my town of Cheshire CT in the Libertarian Party) needs to make Digital Economy its top priority. The reason I am registered to vote as a Libertarian is because I don’t respect the two party system. As far as I am concerned, it is inherently a virulent and cancerous false dichotomy. But also, I share nearly all if not exactly all public policy principles with the Libertarian Party domestically.

Geopolitically the result of this is I can have a far easier time making the LP smart on foreign policy, which I see it is not and to me that’s the LP acting slightly less than its best. And I say slightly because it’s only two public policy fields to smarten the LP on: foreign and defense. Meaning it is legendarily rare for me to make a case to my own party about why it should promote one of its domestic policies within a certain reality.

Hence this might be one of very few cases I make about why the LP should promote free enterprise from within the Digital Economy. So here we go, my readers!

Pushing School Choice from within the Digital Economy

Let’s not engage in identity politics of any brand when I encourage the LP to take Marco Rubio’s methods of pushing school choice. Marco’s idea of making college a much more worthy investment than it is at present is to make colleges transparent to aspiring college students about the values of college degree paths.

You’ll also notice in this external link that the funding of students would be changed into a matter of private investors funding students’ college tenures. In return, the students would owe a small share of the salary of the first job they get back to the investors. That way, investors can seek only the highest-quality classes with the lowest prices possible for that quality for the students they invest in.

Also, there is this case that I ask my party the LP to make for emphasizing online college taking. Online courses are better for every aspect of college other than making friendships, and if you are someone who like to make many friends you may need to take a mix of online and in person classes. We as a party ought to allow states and towns to decide which of these school choice options to make for public schools.

  • Scholarship Credits
  • Voucher System
  • Charter Schools
  • Magnet Schools
  • Home Schooling
  • Education Budget Accounts

And allow state and local electorates to choose two or more if they so choose.

Liberating Currency in the from within the Digital Economy

You know how I opened this post with a bitcoin pic? Well, I believe that ending the fed and replacing it with free banking means doing so from within the concept of Digital Currency. As far as models of free banking go, we as a party need to look to the Scottish model free baking when they had a few different government banks to go with private banks all having a right to make their own currency. Basically Scotland when they were doing this had the most prosperous and most civilized banking ever devised by people.

Okay, but how do we keep that within the Digital Economy? Well, I propose we promote a version of Scottish free banking where every private bank can make their own virtual currencies and their own crypto currencies. In essence, this is because most people these days get direct deposit into debit cards, credit cards and/or ATM cards like I started with. I should know, I get direct deposit every week into my People’s Bank ATM card only to push at least half of it every week into my NetSpend debit card.

Anything else I can discuss?

Yes, I can, let’s promote freedom of choice in healthcare from within the Digital Economy somehow. Specifically we need to say things like these.

  • “Ending the War on Drugs will allow pregnant women to buy birth control online or at the medicine aisle of grocery stores.”
  • “Ending the War on Drugs will allow Americans to get back tax dollars many if not most would rather spend on health insurance!”

And I think I am going to stop there for now, I will give more examples in other posts. Thanks for reading this one, in the mean time!

Let’s Reform all Public Schools into Charter Schools! With Merit-based pay.

(FILE PHOTO) School-Voucher Program Supporters

Yep. This post calling for charter schools and merit-based pay is about Freedom of Choice in Academics and in schools.

Whenever I say I am Pro-Choice…

…I am almost never talking about how I think abortion should be allowed in only the first half of pregnancy. Instead, I am almost always talking about freedom of choice in self-defense tools, in clothing, in food, in housing, and as you can clearly tell by the subject matter here… in academic schools.

Basically, I believe our public schools are failing because they are not charter schools. In other words, they are not subject to any kind of student performance accountability. This also means most public schools currently have to play by a library’s worth of regulations. And as for the merit pay aspect, I emphasize that because normally charter schools don’t receive merit pay and instead get tax funding. So what I mean by merit pay is that parents can pay teachers according to teaching merit, instead of tax dollars being the funding source. Now, let’s talk more of the accountability matter.

Accountability replaces Regulation if a Public School goes full Charter school

Basically, from what I understand, charter schools are independent public schools who are exempt from the regulations that govern normal public schools. This exemption gives charter schools flexibility with decisions in hiring, teaching, and also contracts. However, this flexibility does not come without a price that is paid by public schools themselves, not by any of their student bodies, not even by students’ parents. Frankly that price is charter schools are under very strongly strict moral responsibility regarding spending habits and academic performances. And if you need to know what moral responsibility is.

  • Moral responsibility is the moral deserving of praise and reward for every good deed and also of chastising and punishment for every evil deed, based on the ‘treat others like you want to be treated’ cosmic norm (aka the golden rule).

I think this is all I have to say about school reform and charter schools. Thank you my readers!

Perhaps We Need a Litmus Test for Government Regulations Of Business

goldenrule

Oh yes, this is only one piece of the multi piece litmus test I am proposing we impose on all economic regulations, old and new!

How to Make the Economy Workable Again? Free Enterprise… but how do we get that in short order?

Basically, I am proposing a litmus test as this is frankly the only way I see to pull a major victory and big gain in terms of liberating the economy. Again, this is without resorting to revolution. However, everyone reading this should know this post has been authored in the following three piece context.

  1. Next Presidential election (2020) I will be 26 and therefore constitutionally eligible to run for Federal House of Representatives
  2. I do not wish to run for House of Reps in actual life
  3. But if I did this is how I would promise to create the conditions for prosperity in America, and how I would actually create them too

Okay now that this is out of the way allow me to define free enterprise.

  • Freedom for businesses and workers to organize and operate for profit in a competitive system where there’s only enough government interference to enforce civil and political rights equally for all people.

Now, it is time for me to define my litmus test.

The Regulatory Litmus Test

Whenever a new regulation is proposed, or when an old regulation is acknowledged, the following questions have to all be answered resoundingly Yes for it to not be repealed.

  1. Does the regulation promote the values of hard work, smart work, and all around work ethic building?
  2. Does the regulation enforce the golden rule – treat others like you want to be treated – equally for all people, regardless of whose ancestors were played favorites with or against in the distant past?
  3. Does the regulation accept the fact that everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person?
  4. Does the regulation refuse to ever enable any form of slavery for any reason?
  5. Does the regulation protect everyone, workers and business-folk and unemployed, from torture and other forms of physical or authority abuse?
  6. Does the regulation allow every human being to be legally classed as a human being, whether male or female, whether white or black, and regardless of other demographical factors?
  7. Does the regulation directly forbid double standards and disallow favoritism to men & majorities and to women & minorities, all in the name of equality before The Law?
  8. Does the regulation respect the right for people to seek court compensation for one’s individual dignity being violated?
  9. Does the regulation forbid any level of arbitrary detention, discipline or confinement?
  10. Does the regulation mandate that any discipline of any worker or merchant have whether its needed or not be decided on by an independent jury?
  11. Does the regulation demand that any employer or employee about to be disciplined for something be presumed innocent until proven guilty of having done what they’re to be disciplined for?
  12. Does the regulation require that any level of employers or employees interfering in each others’ free time come after getting the consent of that whose free time might be interfered into?
  13. Does the regulation uphold the freedom of movement for all labor, all markets, all business, all off-duty employees and all unemployed?
  14. Does the regulation encourage businesses to hide could-be victims from the criminals they are trying to hide from falling victim to?
  15. Does the regulation uphold mutual respect between all individuals in the workplace no matter the individual’s nationality?
  16. Does the regulation respect marriage as a privately owned romance between a small couple or small posse of consenting adults?
  17. Does the regulation uphold the right of the individual to own property?
  18. Does the regulation reiterate the fact that every individual has the right to freedom of religion, including the right to espouse a secular morality, both in workplace and in free time?
  19. Does the regulation declare that the freedom of expression may only be limited to include politeness and class as parts of building a work ethic, and even then only for individuals who are either working job or performing a job interview?
  20. Does the regulation decide that everyone has the freedom to associate with any job and/or with any labor union, voluntarily?

Basically, under this litmus test, if even one of these questions is answered ‘No’, then the regulation is either rejected or repealed depending on if it’s a new one or an old one, respectively.

Why Low Taxation and Light Regulation is Better for the Poor, Working Class, and Middle Class

milton-friedman-1

I dedicate this post to Milton Friedman, the historic economist whose domestic policy perspective most accurately mirrors mine.

You can raise taxes on the wealthy at 100% and still be making life worse for the poor, working class and middle classes

Okay, other people. I hear a lot of calls from the left to raise taxes on the wealthy and dump the tax dollars on the needy. You know, the economist I took a Google Image of above, Milton Friedman? The reason I chose to dedicate this post to him is because he coined the term ‘welfare trap’, referring to a system wherein poor people become dependent on government spending and not on work ethic to thrive. Milton also knew full well, that in his own words, “You cannot have freedom of movement and a welfare state, which is why illegal immigration is better for the poor than legal! Because then immigrants cannot qualify for welfare!”

But my case for freedom of movement for immigration policy comes later. Allow me to focus on the correlation between low taxes with light regulation toward poor people and working class, and even middle class, being able to create jobs for their posterity.

What the Poor and Workers and Middlemen Need: Massive Tax Cuts for just their three classes

So far as I can gather, the poor and the working and middle classes benefit most when their taxes are at their lowest level.

Not only this, bigger regulatory burden paradoxically poisons the luck of all three of these classes by charging them $4 grand more in compliance cost than millionaires and billionaires are charged. $11,000 per worker for small markets compared to $7,000 per worker for giant corporations.

But what exactly do I mean by cutting taxes massively for the poor, workers and middlemen? Well, NPR found that economists love six different economic policies that two of are directly relevant to this topic. Basically, here is the list.

  1. Eliminate the corporate tax
  2. Eliminate all income, payroll, capital gains and dividend taxes in favor of just a federal sales tax

Basically, taxing makes people want less to do with whatever is being taxed. And more than ever people want everything to do with earning money and saving money. People even want more to do with spending money to create jobs, because as it’s been said, ‘you have to spend money to make money’.

So ending corporate income tax would put a stop to this pattern of punishing store directors for investing in their respective stores.

Also, ending payroll tax would put a stop to another patten I notice both main parties in America fetishizing: punishment of employers for paying their employees according to merit.

Constitutionally, I think we need to reduce taxation to just the 20% tariff, but even so redesign that to be nothing for the poor and working class, 10% for the middle class and 30% for the rich. This is because the taxing and spending clause very clearly say that Congress is allowed to collect revenue via taxation, but only in the form of taxing trade with foreign markets.

And that’s all I got! Thank you everyone!

How To Fix the Taxing and Spending issue in the United States of America

fc8a3eb0-400c-44d9-9378-d95b7a2e94ac

America has $20 trillion in debt, and here is how I think we ought to fix that!

If you take money out of my paycheck and give it to someone else without my consent,

Then I don’t call that charity, I don’t even call it welfare. I call it theft. Hi again, people of the human species. I am an American human being who is going to extrapolate here about how to fix this fiscal disaster we currently live in.

What exactly are the details of the disaster?

Well, there are two factors to always assess in one assessment. The tax revenue category, or as it is for regular people like me the tax burden, is one. Category two is the federal spending category, which can also be called federal budgets, government spending and government budgets.

Taxing

We have more different kinds of taxes than I even know how to condemn differently. I have to make a numbered list to figure out for myself how many different taxes we as Americans pay.

  1. Income
  2. Payroll
  3. Property
  4. Corporate
  5. Capital Gains
  6. Dividend
  7. Trade
  8. Estate
  9. Gift
  10. Sales

Each of these with a library’s worth of loopholes, nuances, dos, don’ts and more. The total burden or revenue mounts, currently, to $4.4 trillion according to the World Fact Book.

Spending

$6.3 trillion in total spending, according to the same source. As for spending breakdown, we must turn to a private sector fact book for that. Here are the percentages applied to the World Fact Book’s federal spending number.

  • $1.6 trillion that Congress doesn’t even know what this spending goes to.
  • $1.4 trillion on monopolizing healthcare.
  • $1.1 trillion on Pensions
  • $964 billion on monopolizing education
  • $788 billion on “Providing for the Common Defense”, to quote the constitution
    • $550 billion on American military
    • $79 billion on foreign aid
    • $158 billion on Veteran’s handouts
  • $435 billion on “The General Welfare”, as the constitution calls it.

Basically, 81% of the federal spending is on Unconstitutional functions.

How do we fix this disaster?

Well, we do not do it by either one of revolution or by going about it slowly-but-surely. Instead, we need to amend the constitution to restore our founding taxing and spending system. Which basically was to not tax anything but trade and to not spend on anything but defense and welfare.

What are the fine details of this solution though?

Firstly, we need to look at our trade. $1.5 trillion is how much worth of matter Americans export from foreign lands every year. $2.25 trillion is how much worth of matter we as Americans import from foreign lands every year.

Not to mention, economists love the idea of getting rid of any tax that is on production! Economists only want consumption taxed, and not production. However, there is a fiscal and moral need to exempt the poor from taxes of any kind, and economists know this to, as the article I linked to indicates. Individually, I’d say the rate needs to be something low for the working and middle classes and something high for the very rich. Here’s an example I can offer:

  • 0% Import tax for the poor and the working class
  • 50% Import tax for the middle class and the rich

That’d be amounting to $1.875 trillion, which leads to what we need to do with spending to make it a surplus maker and not a deficit maker.

Get rid of foreign aid, reduce spending on Vet’s handouts and on Welfare handouts by something slight like perhaps 20%. This would lead to an annual spending pattern of $1.025 trillion and therefore an annual surplus of $850 billion, 100% of which ought to go to paying off our national debt, even though it will take something like 25 years with an annual surplus of this size. If we adopt this plan right when we need to (aka now), I will be hitting my 60’s when America’s national debt is all paid off. How’s that for realism?

It’s excellent for realism, and the only thing better is you readers and how much I appreciate you all reading my jargon here,

List of Libertarian Principles

Superior LP Logo

If only the United States Libertarian Party promoted libertarianism as being just these principles below!

This is a Listicle about the dictionary definitions based Code of Activism for Libertarians

I hold a mansion of political opinions that, taken as a whole, can be most accurately labeled as ‘libertarian’. But there are countless people out there who have no idea what the word libertarian even means, and I think I should explain what makes me a libertarian. The meaning of a libertarian, as in the official English language dictionaries’ definition of a libertarian is this.

Person who upholds the principles of individual liberty both in words and in actions.

Furthermore, liberty means this.

Status quo of being free as in

  1. freedom from physical bounds
  2. freedom from impulsive and/or tyrannical control
  3. grandeur entitlement to various civil liberties, political rights, and economic freedoms.
  4. freedom of choice

So then libertarian principles are basically matters not of hating government but rather of deterring impulsive and tyrannical rule. I’ll name the principles and define them in my own words.

Freedom from Physical Bounds

  1. Freedom of movement
    • The freedom of people to travel to any place in the world they desire and to move to whatever nation they want if they feel a move-out need.
  2. Bodily Integrity
    • The status quo of having total freedom in regard to one’s own body.
  3. Free Migration
    • The right of people to migrate to whichever nation, province or town they choose to migrate to.

Freedom from Impulsive & Tyrannical Rule

  1. Constitutionalism
    • The idea that society should base its government on a constitution as supreme law of the nation.
  2. Rule of Law
    • The idea that government should abide by laws exactly as society does.
  3. Presumption of Innocence
    • Burden of proof being on the accuser so that the accused is innocent until proven guilty.
  4. Western Democracy
    • A form of rule by elected representatives that abides by the various tenets of individual liberty.

Grand Entitlement to Civil Liberties

  1. Freedom of Speech
    • The right to express one’s own individual opinions freely without fear of being violated for one’s opinions.
  2. Freedom of the Press
    • Right for journalists to freely report the news including with blogs on the internet.
  3. Freedom of Religion
    • Freedom to choose one’s own religious or secular morality independently of any authority.
  4. Right of Self-Defense
    • Right to use defensive force to save the lives of oneself and/or the lives of others including defensive use of deadly force.

Grand Entitlement to Political Rights

  1. Right to Vote
    • Freedom to participate in elections and to cast votes for candidates and/or specific policies.
  2. Right to Petition
    • Freedom to collect signatures on a document urging government or other authority to address a specific concern.
  3. Freedom of Assembly
    • Freedom to gather together with other like minded individuals on behalf of a mutually shared cause.

Grand Entitlement to Economic Freedoms

  1. Free Enterprise
    • Freedom for private merchants and markets to compete freely with only enough government oversight to stamp out fraud, theft and force.
  2. Free Trade
    • Untaxed trade by merchants with foreign merchants that has only to deal with laws against fraud, theft and force.
  3. Supply and Demand
    • A price calculating science wherein demand surpassing supply means higher prices than average, supply surpassing demand means lower prices than average, and supply equaling demand means exact average prices, also applies to predicting profits and even a worker’s total wage for one specific shift.
  4. Freedom of Contract
    • The freedom of individuals to set their own terms and agreements within the labor market place.
  5. Right to Work
    • The freedom of individuals with jobs to choose for themselves whether or not to be in labor unions along with whether or not to work overtime.

Freedom of Choice

  • The ability and power of an individual to choose from two or more offered options when it comes to food, clothing, and various other assorted items and services.

Now that this is done…

Nine Fiscally Libertarian No tax Ways To Finance a Neolibertarian Regime

shutterstock_262713128

If No Taxes, then how would the US military get funded? Read below!

Fiscally Libertarian Alternatives, nine of them exist in funding the Government of a neolibertarian society.

So, in the article on About.Com titled “Ten Different Types of Libertarianism“, my kind of libertarian, the neolibertarians like me, are described as fiscal libertarians who favor a strong military and believe that the military should overthrow terroristic and genocidal regimes. But before this it describes fiscal libertarians as people who believe in free trade, low or no taxes, and little or no economic regulation.

By definition of free enterprise I do have to treat a law against fraud, a law against theft and a law against force as the three laws and only regulation worth having. However when it comes to taxes I used to be of the Flat Tax With Negative Income Tax logic but now I am seeing ten different fiscally libertarian alternatives to taxation.

1} Voluntary Donations and Endowments

If people want to donate to government programs for the poor, which in America is about a quarter of the population voluntarily giving a combined total of $360 billion to charity every year, then they can.

Which is why, from now on, I say that if we the people of privately self owning have to raise charity money through such means as bake sales, lemonade stands, street side car washing, yard sales etc. then so should government officials! Put it to you this way, if a bunch of people came in and robbed a grocery store demanding a fifth of all store profits and then hauled the money away to donate to homeless people you would not call that charity you would call that theft, or you’d call that force. But when the Internal Revenue Service is doing the robbing it is somehow magically not robbery? Amusing…

2} User Fees for Government Programs

Whether one speaks of public education or public healthcare, or of really any government program that is not all about defending individual freedom, or toll booths used for charging drivers however much for every time they cross borders between any two of the 50 states.

User fees are basically prices that the government charges for people to use public services like public schools, national parks, national monuments & public health insurance. Given the need for adopting Singapore style healthcare policy, and the fact that doing so would cut healthcare spending 60% or more while making us one of the top ten healthiest peoples ever, I say it is only fair for us to require government to charge user fees instead of taxing. 66% of their healthcare funding is user fees as opposed to taxation, and still they provide healthcare for all their people on a budget of merely 3% of GDP.

3} Fines Collected to Penalize Fraud, Theft and/or Force

Fraud, Theft and Force are really the only categories that really do contain ‘bad behaviors’, as far as true libertarians are concerned. And by theft and force, we tend to refer broadly to property crime and violent crime respectively. Which is why when someone is convicted of a crime on an innocent until proven guilty basis, with an accusation not qualifying as proof, government should rely on fines of the criminal alone to make revenue off addressing it.

4} Royalty Contracts with the Open Market

Instead of a system like corporate tax, I honestly think a superior way for government to get revenue would be to make reading and signing a royalty contract the one procedure that takes a few hours that it should take to set up business in this country. But what is a royalty payment? A small percentage or other share of one’s income paid to a contractor as part of a contract. In this case, a royalty paid to government as the other end of a deal that begins with government letting a human being set up a business.

5} Public Service Concessions

Concessions in the context of this post are basically acts of government marking property and selling it to human beings either as a one-time payment, or as a monthly bill. So like if government found a five square mile piece of desert and sold it to someone, that someone would be buying into a concession.

6} Public Service Rentals

Rentals differ from concessions in that rentals are inherently monthly or weekly billing matters and the person is paying government to let someone borrow something for as long as that something is needed. Public Education textbooks are a fantastic example of this category that already exists.

7} Selling and Reselling Assets

Assets are resources like oil, coal, hydropower, wood, steel, brass, beef, sausage, lettuce, cauliflower and others sold as a commodity. Raw materials including cannabis that in this topic would be sold by a neolibertarian regime to random humans to pay for a strong military that stamps out terroristic and genocidal regimes and slave trades around the world.

8} State Owned Enterprises

Now just what does this mean!? Well, it means a business that government opens and operates just as an independent individual would in the private sector. Meaning that government would be engaging in free enterprise and the same rules of human dignity and rule of law that apply in the private sector would apply here. A neolibertarian regime would set up a State Owned Enterprise to compete with private businesses in the same industry playing by the same rules, and the regime would spend its profit on hunting Tyrants like the worthless animals tyrants are.

9} War Reparations Paid To Defender

So let us say a tyranny somewhere in the world, with a 6 million population, has decided it wants to murder every one of its 360,000 deists, and a neolibertarian society picked up on that. The neolibertarian society sends its military to totally destroy every Legit Military Target the tyranny controls and to include any and all government associated actors and institutions as LMTs, then it fines the defeated tyranny many billions of dollars.

The ‘fine’ being paid by the tyranny is called War Reparations, and are not taxes because it is demanding a tyrannical regime with no respect for human integrity to fork over cash as the final nail in the coffin of punishment for a highly barbaric individual freedom abuse by the defeated tyranny. And this would also be within the avenging neolibertarian society’s right of self defense which includes the right to go around exerting defense of innocent life in general.

To Each According To Activity And Not According To Need

milton-friedmans-liberalism

Milton Friedman, one of the best classically liberal economists ever!

The case to make against raising or having minimum wage.

So, seventeen days ago right in my state of Connecticut the governor Dan Malloy has imposed a $10.10 minimum wage. And according to the grocery store I do outdoor shopping cart retrieval for, I am going to see my wage go to twenty five cents more than that some time near my Twenty Third birthday on May 6th. Sounds good to me as I usually work at said market only twenty four hours per week, right?

No, and please allow me to make a solidly scientific case for why I do not see it as a good thing, and if you cannot tell by the title I am going to base it on statistical science mixed with work ethic standards.

Raising the Wage Floor forces merchants to lay off workers and raise unemployment

The Congressional Budget Office has found that rising entry level wages causes not a rise in working incentive but rather a drop in how able merchants are to employ laborers. CBO detects that raising the $7/hr minimum wage to $9/hr would cost the economy 100,000 workers while the $10/hr option would cost the economy 500,000 workers.

But there are private sources with little to no approval of government as is who say speak truth to economics in a similar context. Cato Institute for example opens us to data that reveals that even European Union members without a wage floor are better off than those with a clear wage floor set.

Raising the Wage Floor will force small businesses to close

Gallup, a polling site known for assessing reality in regard to polling numbers and not from any point of view other than the idea that polling numbers are the most important things ever, found something relevant to this post.

Out of every ten small business owners they have sampled, six of them claim they would need to close their businesses if minimum wage was raised by 28%.

In a rebuttal of the Bernie Sanders plan to raise all minimum wage to $15/hr, Business Insider noted that Sanders’s plan would allow currently employed entry-wage workers to afford independent living but at the cost of cutting back on voluntarily charitable ‘worker perks‘.

Who or What are most Low Wage Earning Workers Anyway?

It has been found on Pew Research Center that half of all low paying jobs’ workers are between ages 14 and 25 and half of this half is in a 14 to 20 range within that. And I should know I am turning 23 on May 6th of this year and make about $10/hr gross pay.

It’s also been found that Low wage workers are a mostly white market, 77%, and a very slight majority are male. Whereas the majority of US private sector female workers are more often chasing the 39 jobs that women earn better wages by being naturally superior at, mainly as a result of college students being mostly women.

How Should Low Wage Workers be paid?

All workers in a true free society, low wage or high wage or midsize wage; do or should inherently get paid proportionally to how much of the output is directly theirs. For example, when I hit my thirties I plan to be a reptile and amphibian biologist (herpetologist), and wish to get paid according to what % of the teaching I put out the human public. And in the mean time while I am doing my very simple grocery job I want to be paid based on what percentage of the customer service I put out to the economy.

The Kingdom of Sweden: Cultural Marxist Utopia or Freest Market Sovereign Ever?

holme2011-16-1120sweden20market20at20night

Swedish Markets in the night time.

Forbes Recently Did An “Ease of Doing Business” Index of their own, evidently.

Amazingly, despite Sweden’s reputation as either a progressive heaven plane or a socialist hell hole depending on if you as left wing progressive Democrats or right wing conservative Republicans, Forbes has found Sweden to be the friendliest nation on Earth for commerce!

This is a story I discovered on the bottom of page 7 of the episode of Time Magazine that has Botox for its front cover topic. As a middle ground libertarian (aka liberal) Independent, I have found that both progressives and conservatives are wrong about Sweden’s economics! Yes this even means that Marco Rubio is wrong to claim that Bernie Sanders would be a better president for Sweden, despite that being intended by the Marco as a political humored joke. But yes, I guess I still find Marco’s joke funny.

Is This Really Any Kind Of Surprise to Free Market Liberalism Types Like Myself?

No. Instead I find it rather predictable that Sweden has such an easy time letting people do business within its borders and using Wi Fi networks that reside within it.

This is due in large part to data I know from good ole Cato Institute on Economic Freedom in the World and meshing it with World Bank data about the average salary per human being.

I think it should be pretty obvious to everyone by now, the fact that it is Mostly Truth that a nigh inseparable connect exists between economic freedom and individual prosperity, and another nigh inseparable connect exists between economic freedom and individual etiquette.

Will I use this Forbes Index for Future Arguments on Economics?

Of course I will! There is no way I will avoid citing Forbes magazine on this kind of economic policy talk. And to conclude, I will say thank you to Forbes for doing that index and thank you Time Magazine for sharing this news about Forbes with me, and of course thank you random people on the internet for reading this!

To Twitter: Ban Censorship Instead of Banning Users (A Warn Against Internet Censorship in 800 words or less)

taa-twitter-trump

Some finances “expert” claims that censorship is economically beneficial. Taken from the video I am responding to with this WordPress doc.

Howard Linzon Is A Financial Expert Wannabe If He Is Advising Censorship of Accounts!

Who is Howard Linzon and what YouTube video is this an enlarged copy of the official thumbnail for? Well, I am going to dig into that right just now. Howard Linzon is a financial “expert” who co-founded and currently runs an awkwardly named (in my opinion) company called Stocktwits.

And the guy has decided to give feel good politically correct advise instead of actual economic advise, and then claims without evidence that Twitter stocks will rise 20% if his advise is followed. And Linzon’s advise is to terminate Donald Trump’s official Twitter account!? What!?

Where or How did I learn this?

I watched a video from a guy I find often funny and also agree with on science, religion, and the specific political fields of culture and social issues called The Amazing Atheist. I invite you to watch this video but I must warn you some of the word choices are reminiscent of a Mature-rated video game. Watch it here but only if you don’t mind going higher content maturity than Teen, and of course personally I don’t mind it but on social media sites I prefer to limit my own cursing to PG-13 level, voluntarily.

Everything TAA Claims On This Topic Is Proven Fact

Social Blade is a very excellent tool for figuring out how true what anyone says about other people’s social media accounts. And they notice that The Donald has a fan base that rounds to 20 million and an average retweets per tweet that rounds to 19 thousand.

So when TAA claims that Trump can tweet about what he had for breakfast and still come off as amusing, then TAA is absolutely right!

Facts I will go right ahead and Add

The economic punishment for Twitter for blocking accounts instead of monetizing them with the royalties earning consent of their respective owners (definition 8 of royalties in the link provided)… will extend far beyond stock market crash for Twitter.

Every account censored by Twitter will be another step towards 4000 people suffering job loss. And that’s severely bad given the expense of living in today’s 87,000 different poisoned economy because these 4000 will lose $102,000 of annual salary on average.

Threatening to commit violent crimes and threatening to commit property crimes are, or should be, the only illegal activities on Twitter, and even then Twitter should only enforce that by asking the police to search the Tweets and Non-tweet records of the offender. Then its the police’s turn to get a warrant from a judge to investigate the very specific Twitter user who broke one of those two and only necessary rules.

And this is, or needs to be, also the universal law for economy in general and for culture in general because in a civilized free society, human rights are regulated only by cosmic norms that explicitly target one or more violent crimes and/or one or more property crimes.

Not to mention, the police are required to respond to social media threats to commit violent crimes or property crimes exactly as laid out above by the Fourth Amendment.

Closing Disclaimer

No, I do not have any liking of Donald Trump and I have happily backed three different alternatives against the Donald during the 2016 electoral run: first Marco Rubio, then my favorite presidential candidate in US History Austin Petersen, and then I fell back on Evan McMullin when the LP decided to stick to being the party of electoral idiocy and of foreign policy idiocy. But then I ended up shamefully and reluctantly voting for that stoner that the LP “delegates” chose over the masterful Austin Petersen.

Also I have no liking of the Alternate Right and I am politically neither right nor left, I am very much a neolibertarian; which means ‘a classical liberal who supports a strong military and a self-defense and defense of others foreign policy’.

And also I am not afraid to dispute Austin on whether to allow different cultures or to assimilate immigrants into US culture, and I am not afraid to dispute him on broader foreign policy either, especially given him and I are apparently both Anti-Pacifist and Pro-Defense.
