They say, “A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.”
And, at the other end, far, far away, is the United Nations Security Council. One thing, though – the “nations” who are members are most certainly not “united.”
There are WARS everywhere.
And there are “embassies,” too – with all those visa officials.
So what can we say of the customs guys.
Each nation also has its own central bank – and its own paper currency – and ours has just cut interest rates. This will prop up the US paper dollar, and make imports (of components, too) expensive. Exports as well as imports will fall. The global economy will head for collapse. It is just inflationism – co-ordinated by all the central banksters.
Anyway, in Kabul, they bombed many embassies. Karzai said it was “NATO failure.” Now, tell you me, when exactly did the North Atlantic flow into Afghanistan from Reykjavik? NATO trucks enter Afghanistan from Pakistan - via the Indian Ocean.
I saw Angela Merkel the other day, visiting German NATO troops at Mazar-e-Sharif. The TV report said 62 German soldiers had already died there.
The charas of Mazar-e-Sharif is FAMOUS. We used to get it sometimes in Delhi when we were in our teens. FAR OUT!
Why should Germans only smoke Morocaan hashish – their “illegal North African import”?
If they imported Mazar-e-Sharif charas – then, the good folks of Mazar-e-Sharif could import German cars in turn.
Peace, not war – that is Capitalism.
And that is also “United Nations.”
Security as well.
“Security” – it’s the real “dirty word.” All State legitimacy is founded on this word. But we are not secure. And as for the all-important “financial security” – we are on the highway to hell.
Look at the “security” at US airports – with their “porno scanners.”
In our own country, the word “security” is just a big joke. I don’t think 1000 people were killed on our highways every day when Sleeman and his men routed the Thugees.
The Indian Army in Manipur and Kashmir – is this “internal security”? I have a previous post on what the classical liberals thought of a "standing army."
Andy Duncan’s blog has a great review of Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s The Myth of National Defence – here.
In another post, he quotes from Machiavelli’s The Prince – as follows:
The main foundations of every state, new states as well as ancient or composite ones, are good laws and good arms; and because you cannot have good laws without good arms, and where there are good arms, good laws inevitably follow…Rome and Sparta endured for many centuries, armed and free. The Swiss are strongly armed and completely free.
So, think about it.
Wanna phone the cops? As during the riots of 1984?
Or do you think “happiness is a warm gun”?
