Though I do not post in most of them, I enjoy seeing the topics that Anarchist420 raises for consideration.

First of all, they are not common fare. They are a conduit to exploring moments and movements that did shape the course of history, but are known only by implication and not specific reference these days. And they are more often than not timely for reconsideration.

Secondly, they reveal the abysmal ignorance of most who post here. This is precious.

Thirdly, they reveal the moral as well as the intellectual rot of what passes for education for most here.

Fourthly, and in light of the above observations, I would say that most of the liberals who post comments like "go see a doctor" should probably wean themselves off the "progressive" kool-aid and start reading some history texts to see just how wrong most their own interpretations of history and the pablum derived understanding of the intents of historically important figures really is.

Finally, I doubt I agree with most of what Anarchist420 writes but I support him for raising discussion points and personal perspectives that go well beyond the typical, and boring ad nauseum, "my side is perfect and yours is pure evil" insults that reflect minds stuck in some very deep ruts.

I shouldn't have set this thing up as a blog. I meant for an on topic discussion and I forgot to make it look like a question or a discussion.

I hope this helped educate at least someone other than myself on mercy otis warren because she is a pure voluntaryist. On the other hand... I'm ambivalent so there is no purpose to anything I do so I need to just commit first degree suicide. I'm a micro parasite so I really don't matter.

Everything good the state could do has been tried and that is something enough people should know enough to be apathetic unless something is happening to themself. The state is artificial but it is created by natural agents. At the same time, I'm afraid of myself and I'm not the only one like that. Politics is just a game and I've posted everything I can. Hopefully I've educated people about the state enough and maybe I've even told enough that will help people to get out of it at the times each individual believes is right. The state can't be reversed yet, and it is unfortunate that maybe it can only be replaced with something similar to it like anarcho-communism. Nothing works for everyone but involuntary union is immoral.

In any event, the 3rd world war will be waged by an agent even more irrational than FDR who just made more institution the latter of which are a root of it. I think NK may win out and they'll beat the UN. The UN is trying to beat the US and Israel, but NK and the UN hate each other. Perhaps the Church of Rome and even Somalia are going to get better or worse than they currently are... Somalia probably better once the UN collapses and then the Church of Rome collapses with the UN. Then the space aliens will probably come when Somalia becomes good and humanity ends as we know it.

I worry that I'm only half saved or that I'm going to act like a statist in some form, and eventually be damned forever.

On a serious note...

PJABBER, if you can't agree that this post is the product of a mind that is slowly descending in to madness and needs professional help, then there are no redeeming qualities about you.

Anarchist, I sense that deep down you know that things aren't quite right.
There is help available, but you have to be the one that asks for it.
Step forward in time for a moment and not worry about things that happened in the past as you can't change them.

I would suggest that even the idea of being saved or not saved is irrelevant.

Statism is a given and has been for a very long time. The US was formed recognizing the dangers and it has been a struggle since the founding.

The socialism of Roosevelt and then the social experimentation of Johnson, now represented by Obama, is a path that has had many twists and turns but is one that peddles the crack addictive qualities of utopianism and its attendant birth to grave dependency on the state.

There is no such thing as anarcho-communism, it is just a fantasy construct.

There is actually no such thing as pure anarchy or pure communism or pure anything. They are all expressions of desires for freedom or dependency or subjugation.

The more you buy into these fantasy constructs, the more you will remove yourself from reality.

I suggest you spend time reading guys like David Hume and John Locke. And I mean really reading them, as they got it right in recognizing the pulls that societies, governments and individuals have.

You may not agree with their premises or their conclusions, but while all of the other paths humanity has chosen lead to oppression and misery, theirs offers hope and may literally be the only path that does not lead to more of the destruction that is part and parcel of utopianism in all of its statist forms.

I am not trying to read between the lines like you are. I don't know if this is a serious attempt to communicate scrambled ideas or a cry for help or an attempt to punk everyone.

The fact is no one here is professionally qualified to make this judgement and so we are left with a wide variety of mockery, insults and even sincere calls for the poster to seek help.

I do believe most of us that have been on this board for a long time genuinely develop some attachment for familiar posters, even those we love to hate. Once in a while we see one that does seem to be losing it, they drop off and we might wonder what happened.

The mods here have access to more information than we have, there are means to check to see if any poster is on the up and up or requiring intervention. If you are worried, flag the post and bump it for them to review and maybe bypass the anonymity that we survive on here.

Back in my school days there was a kid, real poor and almost deaf. Other kids would throw change down a stairwell and when the kid went down to pick it up they'd spit on him and throw stuff at him, the money was important enough to the guy that he always went down to get it though. So yeah, i've seen this kind of behavior before.
Did you step in to stop that? In my school days I actively used my personal popularity to defend the weak against the worst of bullying, as best I could.

In any event, what you describe above is not what is happening here. The OP is facing severe psychological challenges. His posts in P&N are off kilter, and as such, could be seen as trolling. He is keenly aware of these facts, and has expressed his amazement in pm's to me that we haven't summarily permabanned him, and also expressed his gratitude for same.

Is there any productive way I or anyone else here can help?
You've done a good job so far... keep it up. I do like how you're coming into the threads more and creating some of your own. You've treated me as liberally as any forum director anywhere else ever has:) I'm going through therapy to calm my frontal lobes down and I just restarted so it is kind of like a shockwave effect at first. I just hope no one's heart has shattered over my dumbass, but that's not your fault.
But, I have a duty not just to Anarchist, but to all the members of this forum to whom his "rants" are annoying and disruptive. I could ban Anarchist, or I could allow him to post while I also allow those who wish to point out his threads are nonsense to underscore that point, at long last, with nonsense in return.

I believe the latter to be more humane, on balance, as it allows the OP continued access to express himself while allowing those "trolled" by his fevered brain the right to respond. The OP is not so far gone that he doesn't ALSO realize the negative effects his "rants" have had. The alternative would be to kick him to the curb. I hope not to have to do that.

If you wish to know more about Anarchist's personal situation, and truly wish to try your hand at helping, thoroughly read his posts here: http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2273689

I dont agree with him on everything but liberals believe in big government and because the OP is against that there so intolerant they dont like him

There already trying to derail the thread
What I WILL NOT tolerate is the slick partisan trolling of the first poster above, or the cruder partisan trolling of the second poster above, trying to take advantage of this sad situation to make untrue partisan political points.

You both have now been warned.

Additionally, if either of you or any other poster here has any response or argument with this formal moderator post of mine, or the one just above:

DO NOT POST YOUR REPLIES HERE.

Any discussion of moderator action or stances has one sole legitimate venue: Moderator Discussions.

Thanks for understanding in your own ways as I'm a very quirky individual: ) I'm just afraid of myself and afraid of the state. I just hope Representative. Ron Paul MD can be a savior of mine forever because he got me on a right track forever.

/snip


The same as me, getting more popular people to try and stop it , although it took active intervention by the teachers/proctors to gain some sort of control over the situation.
Do you understand why i had a problem with the posts in this topic?

Not a problem and anyone that's taken even a cursory look at the history behind your posts would be a better informed American.

Is history your only hobby? Isn't there something else more productive that you can delve into? Don't get me wrong, if history is the only thing that floats your boat then more power to you, but there is a lot to be said for the healing power of feeling productive.

Is history your only hobby?
Not really, I'm too much change. I don't define myself, nature did, and I'm worried that I'll never be purely natural for all eternity. Today's history lesson:

the Declaration of the Independence may have meant for the then-colonies to go their own separate ways (no union at all would've been best after all it said something like "these colonies are of right and ought to be free and independent States") but the Articles of Confederation came closer than the Hamiltonians did. Jefferson was a true Citizen, Washington served his purpose because he was a moderate who didn't know better. Clinton was a moderate to advance his political career. Harding got it mostly right by serving others without hurting others. Harding was saved. I am here to educate people. I went to stormfront to educate people in case you didn't know, but Nationalism is such an irrational ideology and they didn't want to here... which is because Dr. Duke is the type who likes everyones' heads up their anuses except his own. Buchanan is a little bit better in some ways, but both really like to pray on the ignorance and sometimes the stupidity of their audience. That's not there though, because I think Dr. Duke and Pitchfork Pat will die doubting the ways which may have offended some... that's because they weren't born haters. Good for them and good for the world.

I had forgot to say more directly that I meant Abigail Adams. I knew who Jane Addams was... she was a philanthropist who started hull house during the American National Socialist era. I feel really dumb.

That out of the way... a special (please try to interpret that on your own because I can't think for myself that much) thanks to those who thought I was a good person.

Liberals are scared of this guy, this is typical liberal tactics, they disagree with the OP and try to derail his thread
Yea, because the merits of two long dead women really scare the shit out of the left. It's 2012, the behavior of most nine year old girls today would petrify either.
