He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.

 

“There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief.
Business men – they drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth.”

song about narcisistic  gaslighting”cyberdevice” addiction and the freakonomics of it?

Spinning in your apartment
Climbing the walls so stoned
Crazy we live in a world of billions
Your only friend is a phone

Every single time he says, he knows who you are
As every single time, you know he lies
He loves you, he hates you
He loves you, he hates you

Since you found your wings
Now those wings can fly
And every now and then you gotta clear that sky
You’re such a little demon, what’s a demon to do
The time has come to crown yourself the queen
The queen of you

You’re such a creature in your comfort
Your body commands your mind
Big appetizer and a sense of adventure
You slap yourself over the line

Every single time he says, he knows you want some
As every single time, you know he’s right
You love him, you hate him
You love him, you hate him

Since you found your wings
Now those wings can fly
Every now and then you gotta clear that sky
You’re such a little demon, whats a demon to do
The time has come to crown yourself the queen
The queen of you

You got a new apartment
And I know you’re not alone
Whenever you got a good thing going
You never answer your phone

We are all creatures of comfort
Our bodies betray our wills
When it all turns real and our hearts gets threatened
You gotta go in for the kill

Every single time, we think we have the answers
As every single time, we get surprised
We love life, we hate life
We love life, we hate life

Since you found your wings
Now those wings can fly
Every now and then you gotta clear that sky
You’re such a little demon, what’s a demon to do
The time has come to crown yourself
The queen of you

Since you found your wings
Now those wings can fly
And every now and then you gotta clear that sky
You’re such a little demon, what’s a demon to do
The time has come to crown yourself the queen
The queen of you

Love life, hate life
Love life, hate life
Love life, hate life

The claim is that within “Anglo-Saxon”5 political theory the dominant responses to identity politics’ central question of who we are defer to a philosophy of the subject. Typically, the subject is clothed in an identity that acts as the moral foundation of politics. Albeit a more accurate ontology, the concept of identity merely scales down the description of the subject to the level of religion, culture, nation, ethnicity, gender or sexuality. Yet one cannot help wonder if identity politics’ corrective of a subject with a plurality of allegiances, which are often provisional to boot, translates into a more democratic politics – as well as a boon to freedom – once the demand for the inclusion of previously excluded identities is met?

politics and drug wars

The war on drugs, tobacco style

 “I consider [the War on Drugs] the unfinished work of the Civil Rights Movement.”

“Amens” rang out from the crowd.

“The Drug War and its extraordinary injustice to people of color must end,” said Jarecki. “I don’t just want it on the radar, I want it flashing defcon red. The War on Drugs as we know it has failed so miserably that who can defend it?”

For Jarecki, that means making sure drug policy doesn’t unfairly impact minorities and treating drug use “as a health issue, not a criminal one.”

Ultimately Linklater seems to propose a grand reassessment, facing history squarely in order to see whether the facts that have been created on the ground can be justified by having produced a net increase in human happiness. If not, then “without that moral basis, a private property society is inherently unstable” and eventually, as has happended so often, “the resentment of the many despoiled have-nots will coincide with the ambitions of a sufficiently large number of have-not-enoughs to create a more or less viable democratic uprising.” Many would argue that a reassessment of the Lockean private property revolution need go no further than considering his famous proviso. Having argued that ‘mixing labour with nature’ creates private property, Locke says that this clever conjuring trick is legitimate only if there is “enough and as good left in common for others”. This certainly is not the case today: but as Linklater acknowledges, it had already become impracticable even in colonial America by the early eighteenth century. Selfishness and Fairness This is a big book, about big ideas. But it is also very readable, and brim-full of fascinating historical nuggets. For example, in comparing private property with the two other predominant land tenure systems, peasantry and serfdom, Linklater explains the role of the mir council which organised life for the serfs at a communal level in tsarist Russia. Each family had its own dwelling and garden, but “in the interest of fairness, the mir periodically redistributed both land and grazing rights”. It determined which crops should be grown and where, managing rotations and key dates in the agricultural year, all aiming at egalitarian redistribution. “Thus, paradoxically, the autocracy of tsarist rule made possible for most Russians the communal life that Winstanley and the democratic Levellers had dreamed of.” Linklater enjoys this kind of paradox. He argues that “selfishness and fairness are both intrinsic to human nature”, and makes much of the connection between private property and modern democracy. As Locke pointed out, those in the club of property owners have a strong incentive to set up social and legal frameworks in which all their interests are represented, and in the process to sacrifice some freedom to the state, in order to protect what they have. But the obvious problem is that those left outside the landowning club tend also to get left out of the democracy. This is arguably as true today as it was in the sixteenth century. Fortunately there are other, more genuinely egalitarian, ways of constructing and justifying democracy. Private ownership of land, Linklater concludes, has been ruthlessly destructive, but very dynamic and hence also very creative. Many readers may feel that what has been created does not outweigh what has been destroyed. But Linklater does also identify a familiar tension – people who believe land should be held in common are nonetheless often pretty keen to get hold of a bit of their own.

The question that opened this essay – do we need to relinquish private property to solve our most pressing environmental problems? – was not a proposal. Instead, it was meant to prompt us all to think differently about the relationship between public need and private ownership, between private property rights as regards use and the rights of the public to access and maintain the resources it needs to survive. Private property laws can allow us to own land in such a way that we feel free to invest in it both our work and our affection. A place where we can say, like my mother does, that we have a home, and we know when we get there, even if it’s not out of the back of a ’39 Ford. Those laws will only do so, though, if we at the same time keep the integrity of the commons intact. To say that we cannot eat money has become a cliché, but it is still true. Nor can we drink it, sleep on it or breathe it. The question of land ownership, and therefore of use, comes down to how much we will accept, how far we will go.

“America is the freest country in the world,” he told me. “America allows more freedom than any other country in the world, much more than Russia and a whole lot more than Scandinavia, where they really aren’t free. So offering all this freedom to society, there’ll be a certain number of people, more in this country than elsewhere, who take advantage of that freedom, abuse it, and end up in prison. That happens because we are so free in this country.”

In order for a city, county or township to charge taxes on each property, they need to keep a detailed record of every property within its jurisdiction, including (but not limited t0) the following information:

  • Who owns the property.
  • When they purchased the property.
  • How much they paid for the property.
  • How much each owner owes in taxes.
  • and so on…

All of this information is public record, which means you find this data on any property in the United States if you just know where to look.

Most county websites will provide this information for free (though they usually have systems that are confusing and difficult to work with). Other services like AgentPro247 will provide much of the same data in an easier-to-understand package (like the example below):

Using the word “own” and “ownership” in these contexts is the sloppy use of the word—which always leads to sloppy thinking.

How for-profit prisons have become the biggest lobby no one is talking about

 What our criminal justice system needs is reform, not incentive for expansion. In fact, opposition to criminal justice reform should render any candidate woefully inadequate to lead a nation suffering from a prison system that essentially perpetuates the oppression of its most vulnerable citizens. We can’t allow the proliferation of private prisons and their political influence to remain the most important issue that no one’s talking about.

Since the breakdown of historic socialism the category of private property has practically disappeared from the discussion on economic justice. The Cold War alternative was: private property or state ownership. As the latter has become obsolete there seems to be “no alternative” to private ownership. The discussion on neo-liberal globalisation normally deals with the three main characteristics: liberalisation, deregulation and privatisation. But even in the growing struggle against privatisation of public services there is hardly any reflection about the fundamental role of private property in the make-up of the dominating political and economic system leading to so much impoverishment of people and destruction of nature. The thesis of this essay is that we cannot design and implement alternatives to neo-liberal globalisation creating poverty, exclusion and destruction unless we tackle the issue of private property. 1

After the Civil War ended the rather short-lived era of Reconstruction came about which saw Union troops occupying former rebel states to ensure that blacks had equal rights and a large rise in the number of black politicians on both the local, state, and national levels. While this was good for black people, there was a dark undercurrent as Reconstruction “exacerbated sectional and political tensions and economic recovery problems.”[1] Due to the Civil War, the entire South was engulfed in economic troubles as with physical slavery abolished; plantation owners now had to pay wages to their workers. Yet the implementation of a wage system was problematic as “the South’s quasi-feudal plantation system was not well-suited for a modern, free labor force.”[2] In addition to this, former slaves were quite reluctant to work in the fields for subsistence-level wages.

Having a wage labor economy was near futile as economically speaking; the entire South was in shambles, especially with regards to currency as “Circulating currency was in short supply,” the Confederate currency was useless, “the banking system was practically destroyed and, crucially, planters, farmers and landowners could not borrow money to pay freedmen to work their land for them.”[3] Planters were left in economic ruins as few were able to use their now ruined land as collateral for loans. Poor harvests only exacerbated the problems as planters found themselves unable to attain sufficient crops to gain enough money to hire wage laborers. Yet, the most important factor in this was that “freedpeople had altogether higher aspirations than being simply wage laborers on large centrally organized plantations.”

People were soon locked into ever-growing debt they could never repay, and Wall Street’s take from whatever pittance they were able to earn increased, as did the total share of income going to those who lived off Wall Street profits relative to those who did honest work. Thanks to Wall Street’s control of the political system, this kind of indentured servitude is mostly not just legal; it is also enforced by a legal system that favors the rights of property over the rights of people.

was the drug war about wall street political “landgrabbing” or “possessiongrabbing”?

by both the drug users, drug sellers, police and government and society at large that can claim “war” on all parties involved? is it a scheme of “possessing everything you can grab” like birds at the park? who profits from the incarceration of drug war participants, who profits from sales of drugs, who profits from using drugs giving up on “life”? who profits when the users are “functional addicts”? who profits from being able to call someone outr or blame someone or accuse someone of being participants of the “drug war”? why? does it end when drug war participants are “processed”? why? is it a form of slavery ? why? does america do unethical experimentation of those in the drug war? why? how? when? who is in charge of “cell groups” that participate on unethical human cyber experimentation on drug war partencipents? why?

how would kids be educated about the religon of economics of the drug war before they are catipulted into a drug war nieghborhood?

is miseduation used to make slaves wordlwide? why? what about setting them up to fail so others “rise” up in there place? is a prsion dilema (philosophy) in a nash equalibrium in a zero sum game.. or scarcity based “contest or bet” of the money/power claim?

 

Modern slavery is harder to recognise when it’s right under our noses

Most of the migrant workers we interviewed, by contrast, conveyed a sense of constant fear, feeling trapped by their lack of immigration status. They also conveyed a sense of deep degradation. We did not attempt to put figures on the scale of trafficking – measuring something that is hidden and illegal is, by definition, impossible. Any figures that do emerge should, like all statistics on irregular immigration, be treated with caution. Undocumented migrant workers who are being exploited tend not to appear on the mandatory crew logs. Some talked clearly, however, of being treated as though they were less than human, or as second-class citizens.

A Brief History of the Drug War

Many currently illegal drugs, such as marijuana, opium, coca, and psychedelics have been used for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes.

The Early Stages of Drug Prohibition

Why are some drugs legal and other drugs illegal today? It’s not based on any scientific assessment of the relative risks of these drugs – but it has everything to do with who is associated with these drugs.

The first anti-opium laws in the 1870s were directed at Chinese immigrants. The first anti-cocaine laws, in the South in the early 1900s, were directed at black men. The first anti-marijuana laws, in the Midwest and the Southwest in the 1910s and 20s, were directed at Mexican migrants and Mexican Americans. Today, Latino and especially black communities are still subject to wildly disproportionate drug enforcement and sentencing practices.

Hey little cookie take a walk my way
I like to hear what you have to say

You know the truth
And you’re so put together
Baby I could stick you on the lip of forever
Even a volcano has a price to pay

What kinda creature do we have here
It feels like love, but it smells like fear

Look in the mirror, baby, what do you dream
Look at it harder now and you start to scream
We’re finding out what drives your machine

You stand
On the edge of a silver future
You stand
On the edge of a silver future

Hey, no
We don’t let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don’t let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don’t let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don’t let go
We all need a daddy

Live in the mirror, baby, you are the dream
You smash that fucker now and you’ll get so clean
Come on and show me what drives your machine
