The world has been built on labor. Just ask any mother.
Labor DAY? What? Labor is 24/7/365/250,000, in one way or another. I'd characterize my sleep last night as somewhat laborious. Life is a labor of love. Self love.
But that's just H. sapiens, 250,000 years strong. Of all the Homo species, sapiens are still the shortest survived. So, we'll see. Can we survive ourselves?
...The "Labor Movement" began in the 1800s, but gained steam only after "laborers" were comfortable that there was consolidated, exigent State power to loot the founders of the capital means of the production that made their jobs possible.
It's pretty simple: Resentment. They didn't have the wherewithal, foresight, smarts or gusto to create, invest in, risk, etc. The capital means that allowed them to do more than scratch at dirt—that allowed them to have a real cut, and "opulence"—like a toilet and running water—better than a 17th Century King—was not enough. That dirt-scrathching, poor immigrants to America going a ways back—before it was largely regarded as The Land of the Free—built kingdoms of jobs that paid out millions...It's just a lucky accident. We'd have done way better with 4.5 million, top-down, federal employees—all LABORING to LOOK OUT FOR YOU!
Important wages are thanks to unions, and not individual value to an enterprise. My goodness. It's such a tough row to hoe: go it alone, vs. gang up, get allies, and loot. LABOR DAY! Fortunately, the Division of Labor reaches to all markets. It's remarkably resilient where people don't want to take the risk of doing their own looting and have immunity-dispensation via law, by means of an euphemism called voting.
...But, by doG, when someone else did risk their own accumulated capital, Laboristas going to go all gift horse on it because they're a "union," now backed by guns, coercion, force. And it will be politically popular, because H. sapiens have replaced the ancient, natural jungle with an asphalt one...and that's "the fault" of those who accumulate capital and risk it, too.
It's so fucking, lafably pathetic.
I make fun of "Labor Day," always have.
- “Labor Day:” Doing Soviet Better Than the Soviets. Note the charts that show how private sector labor unionism is a pathetic limp dick, compared to how the public-sector has a far more effective hardon for looting from you until your great, great, great, great grandkids pay the bill you voted for them to pay and not you.
- Labor Day Remembrance and Appreciation. Note how the labor movement began as a way to keep the chinks, dingos, n*ggers, wetbacks, waps, krauts, spuds, etc. out, all safe for WASPs. It's reminiscent of Caesar Chavez, who began his hilariously dumb farm workers union (you can't organize unskilled labor) as a means of keeping out "illegal" wetbacks.
How about Democracy vs. Monarchy?
Before I get to that, let me ask you to ask yourself whether, if presented the question as an experiment in thought, you don't just do this.
Do you actually think and consider, or just eat regurgitate?
While I'm an anarchist and support no ruler at all, I've said for many years that I'd take—any day—Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, or any number of others as absolute Monarch, to pass down an owned legacy, over the democratically elected pip-squeaks and clowns we have now, as temporary caretakers who loot it because there's nothing to pass down, and all "balance of powers" is a sham that equates to consolidation of looting powers—and if it's to be consolidated, I'd prefer it it one with some measure of human, prideful accountability...and not a fuckatarded committee who literally couldn't design a candle, if they needed to.
...I've known of Hans-Hermann Hoppe, former UNLV professor, for long times. But, just as with Murray Rothbard, I never paid very much attention—just as I eventually decided I could think on my own and didn't need Rand-Jesus, or others, from about 1995ish, onward. That said, this is prescient.
...I lafed out loud when I caught Hans-Hermann speak at things that you might find interesting:
- Confirmation bias and confounding variables at 1:25.
- How Jean-Jacques Rousseau, one of the stanchest fathers of democracy, though it would only work in small "commune" circles. At 2:00.
Have at it, fucktards, plebeians, and noobs. But, in terms of the latter point of Hans-Hermann's, see my AHS presentation at EXACTLY 13:00. What did we evolve to account for?
I ask you: who's thinking, and who's just regurgitating their bullshit?
...The "Labor Movement" is a silly, whoring thing. It exists only as a downstream consequence of fascism. That's "capitalism" lite, where the State fools you into thinking that those who accumulate capital and risk it are those necessary-evil bad guys that just need to be controlled: with endless reams of regulations and stacks of paperwork that you pay every penny for in the cost of your goods and services if they turn a penny of profit, a prioi.
..."Coolest" thing is that the best capitalized have legions of lobbyists, making all you union members and voters even more pathetic and foolish. It is so laf. You're such fucktards, plebeians, and noobs, you'll spend a freely-earned dollar to protect a State-penny.
That penny is very valuable, even though it comes at the expense of your soul as a human animal. You got it for free: via nightsticks, guns, long black robes, painted cars, GI Joe fashions, jails, edifice, marble, oak benches, and wannabes that are your favorite people on earth. They're looking out for you, and you believe it.
But it's OK in America, Land of the Free. Your grandkids will pick up the tab. Just enjoy the fact that you LABORED; bemoan that someone got MORE THAN YOU; forget that you didn't accumulate capital and risk it. Just get someone to grab it for you in SOLIDARITY! What a pathetic standard to bear: "I'm going to be as much of a fucktard as the lowest common denominator." SOLIDARITY!
You lived paycheck-to-paycheck, despising those who did otherwise and created the means of your paycheck. You jerked off in public, voting to loot them.
You even wore a sticker on your lapel: "I Jerked Off!" But it's OK—not only because that's your personal business—but because its background is an American Flag, trumping all introspective thought and reflection.
"Voting" — A Big Whopping 1/300 Millionth Say In Your Own Affairs
It's not your fault and neither is it the fault of "capitalists" (none really were, they were just looters using Division of Labor effect). They sought political power to gain advantage over competition in myriad ways, and you did the same to gain political advantage over them. You are both pathetic: false capitalists, false human animals.
Capitalists blame you, you blame capitalists; and the State garners its vote, just as surely as the poker dealer takes a spiff for the house.
...But everyone understands the poker dealer, and they understand the other players in the game.
Only fucktards, plebeians, and noobs don't understand—or outright ignore—the State's interest.
...We live in an entire world of State Enterprise, while we live also in a world of Anarchy that makes literally everything possible—simply because you don't need an executive order—or even one from the city council—to get up every morning and produce a thing or two...whether on your own behalf, or on the behalf of a social circle euphemistically referred to as a "company."
Or, to nurture an offspring—not yet, anyway...The State has an important interest in the education of its subject zoo humans.
...I can't really say I'm bullish on the prospects of H. sapiens.
