Bernie Tax The Billionaires. Go Bernie Go. Cause Heavy Metal, Don’t Mean Rock, To me.

Bernie wants a more aggressive wealth tax than Warren. Skip eight minutes and fifty seconds in (8.50). They start talking about Bernies wealth tax.

To oversimplify a little bit: The only billionaires should be big factory owners. Like ship-builders or dirigibles builders, Heliostat builders, Small floating modular thorium reactor builders ……..and in their capacity as a sole trader. That takes care of 80% of economies of scale if such people aren’t taxed on retained earnings of their stand-alone factories.

If they reinvest in depreciating producer goods, sure they can keep their wealth. But if they pull drawings out they should have to pay most of it in taxes.  Maybe as high as 90%.

With modern billionaires, all their wealth is tied up in fakery.  Its not in direct productive power.  Its not in heavy metal.  The wealth of the modern billionaire is all reliant on fake entities.

Shares, trusts, derivatives, obligations held over the heads of other people. So with this one caveat I would support Bernie:

If you rich slobs want to keep your billions; take the money out of all these trusts and pay off your debts. Clean your room you dirty billionaire.  Invest in a big factory providing wealth. Or we should take that wealth off you. If your wealth isn’t supported by way of industrial production you ought not have it.

We want jobs and we want hard-core productive power.

Heavy Metal Don’t Mean Rock And Roll To Me

Leo Strauss As Interpreted By A Gentile: He’s really rather good.

At some stage I came to the idea that the old testament, though bullshit from start to finish, was a very positive influence for many gentiles.  But that in the hands of people who think they are “chosen ones” it becomes kind of toxic. And many protestants can begin to believe they are “chosen ones”.

I’ve got a hunch that Leo Strauss may be similar. I have read fuck all books since 2003.  Maybe in about 1995, thanks to being a casual worker who hated being bored even for a second, I ended up one of the best-read people of my generation.  All I did was read, exercise, and do casual work.  Thats probably why I made such an impact on Ozblogistan in 2005.   But I’m not any kind of well-read person now.  Thats all degraded.

So I cannot pretend to have read Leo Strauss in the original.  But a second hand interpretation of Leo Strauss gives me the hunch that how I’ll feel about him is how I would feel about a gentile, versus a chosen-one, with regards to the old testament.

My interim thinking is that us gentiles, when we get the time, would do well to read Leo Strauss in the original. And I say that on the basis of Angelo Codevilla, who I read in the original any chance I can get.

The legitimate Plantangenet heirs live in Australia.  If we make the elder daughter Queen and she makes me Governor of the Southern Highlands, supposing we want the best for her subjects?  Do we want war? No because with economic science I know exactly what to do to bring great wealth and the good life to the people.  So war is this horrific distraction from pursuing the good life.  So war is an explosive action you do to kill the right people so you can quickly get home and continue doing a Lee Kwan Yew performance in making all the little people fantastically wealthy and happy.

Now I heard about this philosopher Strauss.  I now know that his alleged followers,  though they seemed like a ship-of-fools, convinced me (in error) of the rightness of the second Gulf war.  What a bunch of utter clowns these people are.  These neocons.  But lets take a bit of secondhand Leo Strauss commentary:

This impressive condensation of Strauss and Codevilla thought is in this essay from the Claremont review of books.  Here is a sample.  Can you see in any of this a justification for the second Gulf War?

“We must face up to this disturbing Socratic endorsement of expansionism or imperialism in case of necessity. For although the size of the conquest may not “amount to much,” it might mean something quite drastic to the neighboring city that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. It will definitely require the seizure of property and killing of men who oppose this expansion.

Socrates in effect shows that he knows how problematic his open defense of aggressive warfare is, when he says that the government must lie to the citizens about the true origin of the city’s territory. The citizens will be told, in a noble lie, that the native land on which they are born was their mother, not that it was taken by force from a foreign nation.

We may sum up the Socratic approach by saying that although foreign policy is in principle amoral, because it is dictated by the selfish needs of the political community, it is also moderate, because the needs of the city are limited, given the primacy of its concern for civic virtue and therefore domestic policy.”

Moderate because the needs of our people are limited.  With the science of permaculture our needs are even more modest.  There is precious little excuse for war.

“If a city is defeated in war, says Socrates, only those who are responsible for the war will be punished. It is probable that this Socratic suggestion arises from the humanity of his philosophic orientation, which transcends loyalty to a particular political regime. We can perhaps see in this proposal the roots of the much milder rules of conquest established by Locke and other early modern thinkers.”

Here I think it is implied that in a high-tech war, violence should be projected against regime leadership.  No ill will ought to be held against the population once the war is over.  I extrapolate from this that a lot of effort must be put in advance, just who is culpable regime leadership when it comes to the dispute to hand.

“It is important to understand why, for Strauss and the classical political philosophers, the purpose of foreign policy should be limited to self-preservation or necessity. Obviously, it is not because life has no higher purpose than mere survival. Rather, it is because all policy, foreign and domestic, should be in the service of one thing: the well being or happiness of society. This means that government’s most important task is to help the citizens live the good life by promoting the right ideal of human excellence. That is emphatically a matter of domestic policy, not foreign. For that reason, in principle, foreign policy is easy, and domestic policy is very difficult. No one disputes that preservation is better than death; but all claims about the content of the life of human excellence are inherently controversial.”

Foreign policy is easy.  Because you are focused, Lee Kwan Yew style, bringing the good life for all your people tip to stern.  So foreign policy consists of dissuading foreigners from distracting you from this concentrated task.  Which means classifying regime leadership for death, or humiliating fear, should they distract you too much.  I suggest doing this via Venn diagram.  Narrowing it down to hundreds of people.  Or just a few thousand.

“For Strauss, the truly important question to consider is whether Iraq (or any other nation) has been actively planning or supporting the killing of American citizens or citizens of America’s most important allies. As it happens, there is quite a bit of evidence that Iraq was doing just that. Angelo Codevilla’s excellent series of articles in the Claremont Review of Books has convincingly shown the connection between Iraq and terrorists who seek to harm, and who have harmed and do harm, American citizens and their allies.”

It turns out that Codevilla had been unwittingly picking up low-hanging fruit from Mossad.  Me too.  I made the same mistake.  Mossad had been planning this since about 1978 and they had left all this bogus evidence around.   But lets suppose Codevilla had not been fooled by the Jews.  Lets suppose that the Arabs really had committed 9/11 and not the Jews?  Lets suppose Iraq had subtly caused these plans to gain momentum? In that case the Straussian thinking would apply.

Anyway Codevilla is not Strauss, West is not Codevilla,  Strauss is not Socrates.  But reading these Strauss interpreters makes me think there is a lot of worthwhile stuff going on there.

But put these ideas in the hands of the Jews and they are going to make a pigs breakfast out of it.

Lefty Politician Tulsi Interviewed By Libertarian

Its an extraordinary performance.  John Stossel may not be a doctrinaire libertarian.  But he’s pretty far in the libertarian direction even if not doctrinaire.  The interview ought not work at all.  They should be chalk and cheese.  Under normal assumptions a lefty would not go near Stossel.  It ought to be a complete train-wreck for the politician.

But Tulsi Gabbard hits it clean out of the park.  I think Stossel is delighted.  She is like a female version of Simon-The-Likeable.  Simon-The-Likeable from Maxwell Smart. People fall in love with Simon as soon as they look into his eyes.  Stossels trying to fight to keep his objectivity.  Its hopeless.  Given the chance Stossel will be voting for a female lefty for the first time in his life.  I think he’s lost now.  Lost.

Tulsi has been in the legislature since she was 21.  Effortless performance like Bing Crosby’s singing voice; she makes it look so easy. Given time Tulsi Gabbard could progress to becoming a real champion like Dr Mahatir.  The girl is a natural.

A Tulsi-Sanders ticket would be devastating for the oligarchy.  Oh they love commies and big spenders don’t get me wrong.  But they cannot handle small government egalitarians.  But Tulsi and Sanders are lefties I hear you protest?

Note that the Republicans have the Congress and the Senate.  So they won’t be very generous with the purse-strings. That would foist small government egalitarianism on the Tulsi-Sanders administration.  Its not like we need to worry about more financial continence than we have right now.

This team could beat Trump.  The rest of the field Trump will eat alive.   And he SHOULD eat them alive, and if there is any other combination I would want him to do so. He’s probably just having a few appetisers right about now.  These two together are the only team the Donald cannot stomp without mercy.  I hope the Americans will make it a fair fight and somehow it comes together with Tulsi as the Presidential candidate and Bernie running for Vice President.

The oligarchy rigged the election in favour of Clinton last time and she still lost.  This was a bit of an exception because they typically rig elections for the Republicans.  But the oligarchy would rather have Trump then Tulsi-Sanders, as much as they hate Trump.  So we need to watch out for their fakery.  Trump was the victim of their rigging last time, but if it came down to the team I propose,  the oligarchy would swing around and favour Trump with bogus votes.

Before you click on the video just look at the face of the poor little puppy John Stossel.  He can never be the same again.  Just a short time ago he was a hard-headed libertarian, with decades of excellent journalism under his belt.  Now he is human putty.

Tie Breaker Test For A Recent Pole Shift.

There are several lines of evidence suggesting we had a recent pole shift.  But they are not decisive.  The biggest difficulty is imagining that the Antarctic ice managed to run ashore, and climb over the land.  We ought not consider this impossible.  After all ice tends to move like water but in slow motion.  But it is a bit of a difficulty just the same.  To me at least.  Someone who knows more about the specific mechanics involved might be able to explain this but probably wouldn’t, not wanting to besmirch his professional reputation.

But we have a tie-breaker because there is a great wad of ice at Greenland. Ice that is where it is not supposed to be.  And ice that ought not be particularly deuterium depleted if it has always been where it is now.

So the tie breaker would involve getting ice of various ages and finding out if there is a sudden downward drop in deuterium levels at a specific time period in the past.  The two most likely time periods for the pole shift are during the late bronze age collapse.  Or during the quaternary extinction event(s).  I think there were two events … one associated with the initial central galaxy impulse …. about 12,300 years ago.  And also another maybe 700 or so years later, and associated with the Vela supernova.  But we ought to be testing deuterium back maybe 20 000 years to see if this drop in deuterium, especially on the Southern East Coast of the greenland ice sheet, comes about.

If it does then this ice would become very valuable to the health of the humans on earth.  Because it would become the cheapest low-deuterium water available.  It could heal the mitochondria of everyone who could afford it.  Would be a wonderful thing.

Right at the moment the oligarchy are hiding our true heritage with a coverup to do with that part of Antarctica that is directly South of South America.  These are disgraceful hoarders of true history.  So while we want this low-deuterium ice for our health, we need it also, to reclaim our heritage.

Ferguson, Maxwell and Weinberg: Curly Larry Moe.

These three are agents of oligarchy.  I cannot say who they work for directly.  It is certainly convenient for the top global anglo-American-Judean oligarchy to work through Mossad.  But who knows what the channels are? Polishing up my third eye here, I see them as working for gangsters whose bosses are more powerful than the Vatican, but that can from time to time work for the Vatican.  In this case they are not working against the Vatican, even though the oligarchy more generally is always trying to undermine and subvert the Catholic church.  But in this case the Pope will probably be in on this travesty.

Now lets just cut and paste a bit of background from these three stooges and analyse it with regards to the above hypothesis:

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria Justice Anne Ferguson

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria Justice Anne Ferguson
Chief Justice Ferguson was among the Court of Appeal judges who decided to unmask Lawyer X and release thousands of documents revealing the identity of barrister turned police informer Nicole Gobbo. She was also among the appeal judges who decided to reduce the jail term of Akon Guode, the Melbourne mother who killed three of her children by driving them into a lake. She joined the Court of Appeal in 2014 and became Chief Justice in 2017.
President of the Court of Appeal Justice Chris Maxwell
President of the Court of Appeal Justice Chris Maxwell
Before he joined the Court of Appeal in 2005, Justice Maxwell had stints as the Legal Aid Commissioner and Liberty Victoria president, and once led action against the federal government for preventing the MV Tampa from bringing asylum seekers onto Australian soil. In 2015, when he was made a Companion of the Order of Australia for his “eminent service to the law and to the judiciary,” he said: ”Victoria’s courts have increasingly become agents of change in the justice system, and I have been fortunate to be able to play a part in that process.”
Justice Mark Weinberg
Justice Mark Weinberg
Justice Weinberg, who served as a Federal Court judge from 1998 to 2008, sat on the Court of Appeal from 2008 until he retired in 2018 when he was named as a reserve judge of the Supreme Court. Born in Sweden, he was the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions from 1988 to 1991. Last year he presided over the trial of Bourke Street killer James Gargasoulas.
The Victorian Police are a pretty savage gang.  A lawyer is a fairly well protected person. So what is a good girl doing releasing all these confidential files?  You only do that sort of thing if you are working for a more powerful gang.  She looks as gay as all that but she’s a married lady.  Married to another Victorian court of appeals judge.  Which is quite shocking really.  But you have to keep your agents tight.  Supposing you are married and your wife is considering releasing files from an informant to the Victorian Cops WHO IS ALSO A LAWYER.   You’d be begging your wife not to do such a foolhardy thing.  But defying a weaker gang actually serves as deep cover for you working for another, more demonic, set of villains.
On top of that what is a fellow female lawyer doing putting another female lawyer under such incredible physical danger????  Its mindboggling the ruthlessness of such a thing.  You would only do that if you really wanted the other woman dead for some strange girly reason.
Now take the thumbnail sketch of Maxwell.  Well its only a summary.  But what it does is show up a personality that is one of a narcissistic legal usurper.  The lawyer is supposed to interpret the law in the service of justice.  Not get about changing things during his paid hours.  This is just the sort of person that the agents of evil look to recruit. They flatter people like this, play to their ego.
Now how about the supposed good judge? The one who gave the solid dissenting view? Surely I cannot have a problem with him right?  Well he’s not tainted by way of any judgement presented here.  But he’s tainted by way of involving himself with a false flag attack.  So he’s an agent like the other two.  It seems the court of appeal has been fully captured by the oligarchy.  Weinberg hit the jackpot.  He gets to play good guy and he had to be chosen to play the good guy so that people like me will retrospectively whitewash him for being involved in a staged event operation.
  But there is a really special twist to this story.  Because the whole farce has been constructed so as to actually whitewash the church and hide the sexual crimes of the current Pope.  Pell has been made the Judas goat.  Couple of twists coming up.
“Which further illustrates how all the morons in this thread throwing around innuendoes about the Vatican’s hidden hands in Pell’s conviction behind the scenes are at best only on notch less unhinged than those believing in Pell’s guilt.
Do you have any evidence for the Vatican’s involvement, morons?!”
This is a quote from someone at Catallaxy.  Let me tell you that if you follow psychological operations, THIS PROVES ITS OPPOSITE.  This very quote implies the deep cover of Vatican involvement.  Its like hyper-nationalism and anti-semitism being used by crypto-Jews as deep cover.  The Vatican has been acting saintly, supporting Pell but stressing their trust in the Victorian justice system.  This is not mere naivety from foreigners.  You see the reality is that the entire farce was constructed to make Pell look innocent, but take him down anyway, and whitewash the church in the doing of it.
The important thing about psychological operations is that they are multi-layered. And this one looks like spectacularly achieving everything you would expect it to achieve if The Vatican were allowing their more powerful acquaintances to handle this matter for them.
But there is another twist.  Reverse speech seems to imply that Cardinal Pell had a specific memory of doing something wrong and probably illegal in the context of being overcome by lust.  Not necessarily rape.  Not necessarily anything to do with a minor. Probably homosexual but even there its not quite clear.  I would say some sort of physical assault but not with a minor. But I don’t know that is just my hunch when it comes to listening to the reverse speech.   Its not possible to tell exactly what the crime was.  But since we have Pell being interviewed BEFORE he knew the details of what he was being accused of,  his mind was triggered to a memory of losing control of himself and doing something wrong.  Perhaps raping a male prostitute.   It could have been anything really.  Because he wasn’t aware of the details before the moment we have him on tape.
This is how the oligarchy operate.  And its a horrible thing.  Like when I got fired a few months ago,  I was feeling bad about having lost my temper at a casual worker.  I knew I hadn’t hurt him even a little bit.  But I knew I was in the wrong for not getting out of the lift, when I was furious with him.  So because I felt guilty about the incident I couldn’t defend myself adequately.  I knew I deserved being sent to another part of the factory to work for awhile.  Losing some overtime.  Getting some minor punishment just to maintain decorum. But I ended up being sacked after 22 years, much of which was disproportionately beneficial to the company.  Something very like this is going on here.
With the great man Bill Cosby;  Mossad rounded up every troubled woman of a certain age they could find, and got them talking a lot of nonsense. But they didn’t go forward without having some scintilla of some wrongful behaviour, that they could pull out as a trump card, right at the end of the softening up process.  I know less about the Rolf Harris situation.  But that would seem to be something rather similar.  Every agent and her Momma lining up to talk nonsense about Rolf but perhaps some loss of control in a couple of situations in his past.
The Vatican has its reasons to work with the bad guys, notably that the current Pope is almost certainly a victim/evil perpetrator in the oligarchies “Brownstone Operations”… From the oligarchies point of view they need to whitewash the nightmare situation where they have been caught redhanded with Pizza-Gate, Epstein, and sexual assault victims escaping from the clutches of the Royals. Not to mention those who didn’t escape and will never speak again.
The oligarchy cannot get caught with a series of smoking guns like this and the rest of us not expect a motherload of high profile reactions.   When I saw pizzagate its almost like I was waiting for the tide to go out and a big tidal wave start to build.  Well these people seldom disappoint and I didn’t have to wait too long until a bunch of waves came crashing in.
Now at the risk of making Pell seem more guilty than he really is I will link his reverse speech.  Subsequent reverse speech should imply that he is innocent of the specific crimes committed. But this incident of reverse speech sees him guilty of some sort of lust crime, and as I keep saying ….. it probably has nothing at all to do with kids.   There is no reason to believe, from what we see presented before us, that the wrongdoing that Pell has in his mind, is a child-related memory.  No reason at all.   Not speaking from experience but I am lead to believe that “sex” in the homosexual community can be a very brutal thing and thats actually part of the buzz of it so it is said.
As I told the reverse-speech crowd:
“Slow down fellas. Hold your horses. This Pell thing is a much more involved psychological operation than you realise. Your reverse speech has revealed some sort of alternative and lesser homosexual outrage than the specific one Pell was accused of. The lesser crime that he is admitting to in reverse is not necessarily rape and not necessarily with a minor.  It could be rough play with a prostitute. We simply do not know. You see he is being told of the accusations for the first time. So its not surprising that being hauled before the police has triggered a memory of some other incident that is not the same as the fantasy story that has been put together to achieve a number of goals. So take it easy. Don’t be hanging judges. Reserve your positions for awhile until you have investigated further. Because the nature of the trial reveals this op to be a multi-layered affair. Like something Mossad might carry out with Vatican approval.”
Pell could have been set up for sado-masochistic behaviour with an adult male prostitute without explicit verbal permission.  That would technically be a crime and is certainly a sin.  Who knows what Pell is feeling guilty about in the incident, but what we can be sure of is its not the same incident as the fantasy story that he is being accused of.


Kicking Off Thoughts On City Layout

So as discussed often enough the keys to good policy are 1. glutted land substitutes (high-rise, basements, roads under the ground) 2. Phasing to growth-deflation monetary policy (Gross business revenues always climb but never so fast that prices stop falling) … 3. Phasing to more cash than debt (or at least vastly improved cash/debt ratios) 4. Phasing out fractional reserve banking, 5. Immediately dropping any tax on sole trader retained earnings (they may pay their tax on excessive land holdings, or on drawings, but never even one dollar on retained profits and that is something we should jump to immediately rather than phase in) and 6. Meeting Henry George part-way.

But what clues do we have as to the exact rollout of these transformations.  One way is to project forward what sort of a society would really work fantastically.  And then reverse-engineer those policy settings that would more or less naturally lead to these outcomes given maybe two hundred years of organic transformation.

So lets kick off some analysis as to what we would want from city layout.  Personally I would want these little bursts of high-rise with sixty acre permaculture farms on all sides.  Maybe thats a bit too extreme.  Maybe thats more of a thousand year transformation.  Not a two hundred year one.  I don’t have totally firm and worked out ideas on this.  Like if you want all the answers for monetary policy I have all those answers.  I consider myself the expert.  I have all the transitional strategies. Thats a big topic though, so I’m putting off that one until the Christmas holidays.

One reason I don’t have all the answers for city layout is that I haven’t figured out how to make tall buildings sensationally beautiful yet. And you really don’t want ugly tall buildings.  We who have lived through 20th Century architecture have been beaten down by the typical brutalitarian ugliness of tall buildings and thats why a lot of my ideas to do with high-rise expressed on Catallaxy, which I would have thought were obviously right, weren’t readily accepted.   I cannot blame people for not being keen on a relentless glut of high-rise. Though it was the only way to give us first world wages with third world living costs.

This is also why I am very appreciative of the work of Roger Scruton.  Bringing his philosophical training to try and look into the idea of beauty.  So important.  We need to know how to create beauty in advance.  In advance of putting up a 30 story tapered building in a small town.   I don’t think any council should object to a design on the basis of height. Thats plain anti-social. But they ought not let up a building that is going to be ugly. Because thats child abuse, elder abuse, and every type of other abuse in between.  A councillor of a small town should show her enthusiasm for tall buildings.  She should be almost orgasmic about them.  But she should demand that the developer take all the time in the world getting the design of the building perfect.  Because once its up, if we are not zionist terrorist Jews like Silverstein ………  we will expect it to stay up for maybe two hundred years.

Anyway here is a post I made elsewhere that I will use to kick off the topic of city layout.  I would really want to be assailed by a lot of ideas on this matter so I could carve out a working ideology about it:


Try Science KT-2. It works for me. On another matter have we really thought through our city layouts? On the news in Sydney this week we had a survey on travelling times in Sydney. 71 minutes a day was the average commute for civilians who work in one place. But tradesmen were stuck in their gas guzzling van/truck for (from memory) 2 hours and 40 minutes per day or something close to it. Now this is a disaster as far as productivity is concerned.

You have people who make things and people who build things, and then there are many people who seldom do anything very useful for us over the longest run. In the second category its usually tradesmen. The skill set for building things is primarily in the minds of our tradesmen. So here they are wasting time every day in traffic. Now supposing they want to employ an offsider to teach and ride in the truck as well? How is a tradesman going to afford a young offsider to teach and help him, if he’s running into overtime most days, simply because everyone is stuck in the vehicle?

What would a city look like that cut down on these travel times? Maybe it would take up one tenth the ground area, have one million people and not four million people, with as many of the roads underground as you could possibly manage and first class public transport. Plus the roads financed by congestion taxes but only at peak times. Free travel the rest of the time so that we can manufacture goods and build things more cheaply than the people in other cities.

I don’t know if the answer looks like this, but it bears thinking about because this time spent in the vehicle by tradesman is a major break on economic performance. I want to close down maybe twenty or thirty government departments to make finance available for a communist department of tunnelling. The M4 opened days ago and its amazing how much time this humble tunnel can save people if they are criss-crossing the city.

We really need a communist department of tunnelling and a communist department for the development of canals. Some of these outfits need a 5000 year time horizon if we want to produce glorious outcomes.

Chairman Mao said: “Dig tunnels deep, store grain everywhere, and never seek hegemony.” This needs an update but its pretty good advice right there I would have thought.


The Bird Social System; “Cracked It”some time back.

From Elsewere:
