Decentralization – The Capitalist Answer to Everything

There is a difference between capitalism and corporatism. Capitalism and the free market allow for competition to take place and new ideas to flourish. Corporatism seeks to control everything.

Lately, we have seen liberal dominated tech companies such as Google and Twitter shut down conservatives. What was once open and free is now becoming more and more controlled. Conservatives are being banned and shadow banned when it doesn’t fit the narratives the big companies like.

So do we invite the government in to regulate? Or should we allow other companies to innovate instead?

The creator of the world wide web decided to do the later:

The man who gave us one of the greatest technological leaps of the late 20th Century has done it again with ‘Inrupt’ which just may well become the new way we use the internet.

If you want to stop the democrats and big tech from silencing you; vote republican in November and checkout new startup technologies such as Inrupt.

Just as with crypto currencies, the internet is still evolving. We’re only just getting started!

Foreign policy

This morning a friend and I were discussing foreign policy. We were talking about the situation in the Ukraine, Russia’s aggression, and the history of the cold war. My friend went into detail about America’s roll in the world in the 20th Century, and I discussed England’s role, particularly in the 19th century. We both agreed that having an English speaking nation patrolling the seas, was essential to protecting free trade, and ensuring our liberties here at home.

We discussed what we would do if either of us was president, instead of our current befuddling fool in the White House. His was more of an aggressive plan, threatening Putin, while mine was more diplomatic. If I were the president, I would use the 1994 Budapest Memorandum to send US Troops into the Northern part of the Ukraine, with a statement that the troops will be put there to ensure a peaceful transition of power while the interim government goes about holding fair elections.

Many would view this as escalating the situation and provoking a third world war. Yes, it would escalate the situation, but it would stop Russia in its tracks. In fact, it may even prevent a third world war, because it would stop Russia from gobbling up sovereign nations, and consolidating more power for itself. Remember that Nazi Germany gobbled up neighboring territories in the late 1930’s, and then became unstoppable when it invaded Poland.

History is repeating itself, as it always does. Sometimes you have to meet aggression with aggression. Now I’m not saying we should go bomb Russia, or attack its troops or assets in the region. I’m simply saying we should put troops on the ground, in accordance with the existing treaty, and then figure out a peaceful deal with Russia to ensure a smooth transition of power in the Ukraine.

It is my understanding that much of the Crimea is actually of Russian decent, and consider themselves Russian before Ukrainian. That’s fine, if they want to hold a referendum and rejoin Russia, that should be put on the table. The northern part of the Ukraine could then hold a referendum to install a pro western leader, and then join the EU. In this instance, both sides win, and both sides save face.

Now, if we don’t do anything, Russia will attack the Ukraine, our president will look like the idiot he actually is, and Russia will aggressively expand her territory, while we sit on our hands, with the most powerful military in the world, looking pathetic and weak, when we could easily stop the aggression, without even a shot being fired.

Now, I know my libertarian friends will be furious that I would even suggest all this, but, we are the worlds foremost superpower, and we are a constitutional republic. We ensure free trade in the world, we are the check against Communist China, and aggressive nations like Russia. While I agree we should not go out of our way to meddle in other countries affairs, when we have treaties, we should enforce them. It’s a very fine line. We should promote and protect counties which want democracies and free trade.

That is my take on the situation. Unfortunately, I fear we will do nothing in this instance, and Russia will grow in power, while we sit around and do nothing but unnecessarily lose influence in the world.

What would you do if you were in power?

What’s up with Israel?

US politicians and people like Glenn Beck profess their love for Israel whenever the subject of the Middle East comes up. But they never talk about how Israel came about, or its bloody uprising.

This documentary shows an unbiased view of the birth of Israel:

So what do the Nazis and Israelis have in common?

Both Nazi Germany and Israel have occupied lands that did not belong to them. Both came about by war and bloody struggle, and both massacred innocent civilians. Why is it that because of what happened during the holocaust in Nazi Germany in Europe, that we can somehow justify the expulsion of Palestinians from their native lands in the Middle East?

What happened during the holocaust was terrible and unimaginable. But what many in the world do not realize, or rather ignore; is that many ethnic cleansing and brutal murders on a massive scale, have happened since. Just look at Bosnia, Rwanda, and Somalia. Just in the last couple of decades many hundreds of thousands of people have been murdered. Why do we feel the need to justify Israel’s occupation of Palestine because of what the Nazi’s in Europe did to the Jews during the early 1940’s? Does it not seem ironic to you that we support a regime that now shows similarities to the very evil they themselves fled from?

Why do we support an occupying regime in the Middle East, just because it professes to be a democracy? Why do we denigrate Iran for being ‘extreme’ when we are the ones who overthrew its leader when they attempted to form their own democracy?

Why do individuals allow themselves to get so wrapped up in a one sided view point? Arabs and Muslims are not evil; they do not want to kill us all, just as Christians and Jews are not all evil also. There is a very small percentage of each group that wants holy war, and it has been going on for hundreds of years.

Do not get sucked into such a way of thinking. It is a trap, and you will become a useful idiot.

My articles are highly controversial, and I rock the boat severely when it comes to politics. I don’t really fall into one category. My mode of thinking perplexes both those on the right and those on the left. But if we are to move forward in the world, if we are to restore this country, and become a beacon of hope for the world once more. We need to be able to sit down and intelligently think about how we conduct ourselves in the world. Remember that your comfort zone is your failure zone. Don’t get comfortable being a ‘conservative’ and don’t get comfortable being a ‘liberal’. Both sides will play you off against one another. They are both two faces on the same head. Don’t allow political pundits to manipulate your mind so that you become sedate in your actions.

I believe in liberty for all mankind, or at least an adherence toward it. Developed nations should strive to become an example for the world. Not try to force other nations to ‘comply’ with their demands. That is why I do not agree with the sanctions on Iran, and that is why I do not support Israel. If we truly wanted peace in the Middle East, we would withdraw our troops and go home. But we are not interested in that. We are simply and desperately interested in oil.
