    Saw a video of Al Sharpton riling-up the locals this morning. They're holding signs that say "hands-up, don't shoot." At the same time he's yelling into the microphone "put your hands up if you're mad!" So which is it Al? Should the next cop just figure you're mad? What an asshat.

    I must express my surprise at you being a consumer of an anarchist's musings though, Jim. I'm not bugged, just surprised. I read anarchists all the time, though I don't subscribe to the ideology. The whole point of the Constitution was to provide order for The People with the smallest, least intrusive government possible, which, another way to put it, would be to say as close to anarchy as a People can get without actually breaking down into the chaos of anarchy.

    Whatever, that writer has his finger on the pulse of modern policing. Enjoyed the read. Thanks for it.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Anarchist or libertarian on steroids? His message is definitely thought provoking. I think that even the Buppert subscribes to some sort of governance in the form of self governance. I am not sure that a lefty anarchist subscribes to even self governance...just look at their personal hygiene.

    great article for those who are capable of independent critical thinking.
    the problems in ferguson are multifaceted and cannot be easily discussed without causing waves of massive emotional responses.

    No one but no one pays any attention to sharpton anymore. He is a race hustler and can get the panties of a few ignorant folks all twisted up. Sharton needs to be marginalized and ostracized by society.

    It is your previously-stated misunderstanding(s) about libertarianism that caused me to express surprise at your willingness to consider what an anarchist has to say, and I must say, you provide above (and below) the perfect exposure of that misunderstanding.

    The name of the site is "ZeroGov.com," and the header says, "An online journal by Bill Buppert devoted to the total abolition of slavery and the state." That is anarchist through and through, which is fine, he's still quite obviously a competent analyst and writer, but nowhere even approaching being a libertarian of any description.

    Yes, well, of course, personal hygiene should be what determines the legitimacy of one's political ideology.

    Beyond that bit of meaningless minutia though, anarchists cannot, by definition, be "lefty," and there is no doubt whatsoever that their ideology includes only self-governance as the moral imperative for society to live by. Of course, it doesn't work, so I'm not an adherent, but I do understand it as the next step to the right of the smallest, least intrusive government possible as-envisioned by the Founding Fathers of this country when they created a representative republic.

    It's been posted here several times, but the following video describes why anarchism is to the right of a republic on the ideological spectrum. This is a link to the original source, and the embedded video is about a third of that 30-minute piece on America produced by the John Birch Society several years ago. That full version was uploaded in 2012, but a DVD of it was part of a JBS fund-raising packet at least as far back as the 1990's.

    Anyway, here's the 10+ minute excerpt:



    Like I said Jim, that was a great link you posted. It wasn't great because the guy is an anarchist, a republican or a libertarian, it was great because he shared insight with which folk from many ideologies can relate. I wish you could see that that's enough regardless of the labels you believe apply to his politics.
