November 30- In 1782, Representatives of the
United States and Great Britain sign preliminary articles of
peace as the first step toward the 1783 Treaty of Paris in which
Britain relinquishes all claim to each of the 13 sovereign and
independent American states. In 1804, impeachment proceedings
are begun against United States Supreme Court Justice Samuel
Chase for allowing political bias to influence his judicial
decisions. In 1872, the first-ever international football
(soccer) match takes place, between Scotland and England. In
1999, large-scale protests against a WTO meeting in Seattle
force the cancellation of opening ceremonies.

The Founders' Defense Against
Sociopaths In Office
"In order to get power and retain it, it is
necessary to love power; but love of power is not connected with
goodness but with qualities that are the opposite of goodness,
such as pride, cunning and cruelty."
IT IS WELL ESTABLISHED that there are an inordinate number of
sociopaths in public office as compared to the
general population. As observed by
Martha Stout, clinical psychologist and author of
The Sociopath Next Door,
"[P]oliticians are more likely than people in the general
population to be sociopaths. I think you would find no expert in
the field of sociopathy/psychopathy/antisocial personality
disorder who would dispute this..."
These sociopaths are people of the "power
characterized by narcissism, self-importance, a willingness to
manipulate others and the charm to do it effectively, and a
perpetual habit of deflecting blame when their self-interested
actions cause harm to others, all stemming from a basic lack of
This overrepresentation of sociopaths in the
"political class" is no surprise. After all, public office
offers all the things gratifying to such people. Office-holders
get lots of attention from others, much of it fawning; they get
easy money and lots of it; they get the opportunity to rule over
other people; and they face a standard of success that relies
more on a skill at bullsh*tting than on the hard work needed to
actually gratify the needs and desires of strangers, such as is
required in any other occupation.
Further, the skills needed to achieve public office-- being
willing and able to convincingly paint a rosier, more desirable
picture than any honest opponent would have the moral turpitude
to offer; charisma; and an obsession with self-aggrandizement--
are all the natural traits of the sociopath. Healthy men and
women are hard-pressed to compete against these political
"naturals" in any but the most extraordinary circumstances.
Given this remarkably-aligned package of
requirements and rewards, it's no surprise that sociopaths
gravitate toward public office and achieve it in numbers
disproportionate to their representation within the general
population of healthy men and women. The top prizes go to
the very worst of them, and the losers satisfy themselves by
joining the swarm of petty functionaries with clipboards that
fills government buildings coast-to-coast.
SO, PUBLIC OFFICES ARE TYPICALLY nests of snakes,
supported by nests of lesser but just-as-reptilian creatures,
including, of course, all the appointees selected by the chief
sociopaths (judges, department heads, commission members and so
forth), who are from the ranks of those congenial to their
benefactors' characters and desires. This has always been the
case, from the very beginning of any kind of hierarchic ruling
structure in any human society.
And sociopaths in positions of authority are dangerous!
No one in his or her right mind wants these folks wielding
significant power that is capable of causing harm on any kind of
mass scale, whether at home or abroad.
THOSE WHO FOUNDED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN AMERICA knew all
about sociopaths, their lusts, and their skills. Adams,
Jefferson, Madison and the rest were close and accomplished
students of history and psychology, and had their own personal
lifelong experiences with public office-holders, both elected
and appointed. The Founders recognized the danger these
mentally-ill but eminently-functional types represented to
decent society and the principles of liberty.
At the same time, the Founders also recognized that
some form of power-managing societal organization was
inevitable, whether theoretically "necessary" or not. So, they
made provisions to structure that organization so as to provide
for the accommodation of the inevitable while strictly
protecting against the threat of sociopaths using the structure
to do great harm or become an existential threat to the liberty
of the People.
THE FOUNDERS' CHOSEN DEFENSES AGAINST THE
SOCIOPATHS were two-fold. Informing both was an understanding
that while power cannot be kept from bad people, and any degree
of power corrupts even good people once it is in their hands, if
the power that bad people are able to wield is small, then the
harm done by them can be kept small and tolerable.
The lesser (less relied upon) of the Founders'
defenses against sociopathy was the recognizably weak measure of
granting public officialdom only express, limited powers. The
Founders were not fools, and they were well aware that the very
same public officials they meant to restrain would assume for
themselves the authority to interpret those limitations, and
would do so in a fashion which would, over time, nullify them.
It was also understood that the class of public officials and
those who supported their elevation would also end up
manipulating the electoral process so as to largely ensure their
perpetuation in office.
Thus, the second, and far more powerful and
reliable defense: the juxtaposing of the personal interests of
individual men and women directly against the desires of those
in office by carefully-designed rules controlling the federal
government's taxing authority. Here, too, expressions in the
fundamental law were involved, but those regarding taxation are
unique among the delegated powers in several
First of all, under the unique rules controlling
federal government (fedgov) taxing powers, the fedgov is given a
means by which an unlimited amount of wealth can be commandeered
at the sole discretion of Congress and the President-- but
only if liability is laid exclusively on union-state governments.
This is "direct" taxation.
Because the population of a state in the aggregate
will ultimately pay all direct tax levies, an explicit incentive
exists for residents of the state to pressure its congressional
delegation to keep direct taxes low. Further, because
apportionment (the mechanism by which liabilities among the
states are distributed) lays the burden for a tax upon a state
based on its proportion of the national population, not its
proportion of the national wealth, the overall per capita burden
of any direct tax cannot exceed the whatever the poorest state
is able to pay, again forcing direct taxes to remain low.
On the other hand, indirect taxes cannot be
collected unless individuals have chosen to engage in
government-privileged economic activities rather than common
economic activities engaged in by right. Thus, every individual
is entirely in control of how much, if anything, he or she will
pay the government in indirect taxes, such as the "income tax".
Because every individual naturally seeks to
optimize the gains from all effort, individuals will keep
privileged economic activity at a minimum, unless the rates of
tax are kept so low that the overall net gains from privileged
activities exceed those that can be had through unprivileged
economic activity, even with the additional burden of the tax
factored in as a cost. Either way, the power accruing to the
government through the capture of indirect tax revenues is kept
Putting the two varieties of tax together, Congress
has a deep and broad authority to tax. At the same time, the
rules under which Congress is exclusively allowed to exercise
this authority impose extremely powerful, diffuse, wide-reaching
and self-activating constraints on how much power its exercise
puts into the hands of those in public office.
And those constraints operate by virtue of natural
incentives needing no special political organization on their
behalf. No other provision of the Constitution either
authorizing a power of Congress or limiting congressional
discretion shares this effective duality of character, and is so
unassailable either politically or through creative
"construction" of the law.
SO, THIS IS HOW THE FOUNDERS, in their far-seeing
wisdom, solved the age-old problem of sociopaths in office. They
set up a structure limiting the power those sociopaths can wield
which does not rely on the inherently unreliable checks
and balances of different branches of government, which are
always at risk of corruption from "checks and balances" into
"You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours."
Instead, the Founders invoke and rely upon the
discipline and energy of the competing interests of the
individual Americans from whose pockets the power must be taken
and against whom it would be exercised. People looking out for
#1 look hard and sharply, and in doing so benefit all of society
by keeping the sociopath-infested state from growing large, and
NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE SOCIOPATHS have struggled over
the centuries to escape the constraints of the Founders' design,
but to no avail. It has only been by the flimsy artifice of
absurd myths about the nature of the indirect "income tax"
that any evasion has been managed. But even this evasion is not
It is true that under the influence of the
sociopaths' myths many Americans have been fooled into treating
all their economic activity as federally-privileged and subject
to tax during the last 75 years, and this has allowed much more
power to accrue to the sociopaths than any sensible person would
But the mistreatment of activity as privileged and
subject to the tax remains entirely within the discretion of
each individual, however much that discretion is being
controlled in its exercise by state-encouraged ignorance about
the tax. The rules have merely been evaded, and only so far as
the state can promote and maintain that ignorance. The rules
have not been escaped.
Nor will those rules be escaped. It is
telling that the mistreatment of activities as taxable by which
the sociopaths benefit has not been accomplished by convincing
Americans that is it good for their power to change hands. As
the Founders understood, this will never happen, and
has never happened.
Only the fostering of falsehoods about the nature
of the tax and the rules to which it is subject have
accomplished this undesirable transfer, which remains entirely
vulnerable at all times to the simple expedient of
informing misled Americans of the truth about the tax and
the rules under which it operates. As rapidly as that
re-empowering information spreads the power available to the
sociopaths diminishes, and nothing is needed to secure that
relief except that spread of knowledge.
Already the tide is starting to turn back toward
liberty and limited government under the law.
Many Americans have learned the truth about the tax and have
re-claimed their power, keeping it from the sociopaths and
protecting all of us from harm. Meet some of these truly heroic
American men and women

Vietnam war draft lottery begins.
PRO TIP: By the
physics of the law, an indirect tax is necessarily a
privilege tax. Here's why:
The distinction between a
direct tax and an indirect tax is incidence. A
direct tax arises by the direct imposition of the
taxer, without any election of the taxed (other than
that of authorizing the taxing power in the first
indirect tax arises by the taxed
choosing to to do
something by which the taxer's claim is then
created. The choice that is a valid object of an
indirect tax can't be anything done as an exercise
of an untaxable right. Nor can it be any activity of
necessity. A tax on anything done by necessity would
arise not by actual election of the taxed but simply
because the tax had been imposed by the taxer. Such
a tax, whatever it may be called, would be in actual
substance a direct tax, even if one that arose only
intermittently. Think of a tax on eating, for
example, or working, or engaging in trade with
others (all of which are things done by right as
well as by necessity, but you get the point).
What is left as the
valid object of an indirect tax is the exercise of
privilege-- something done not by right, and
therefore done by the permission of the taxer (who,
due to being possessed of an ownership right in the
thing being permitted, is entitled to claim of
portion of the proceeds when the thing is profitably

argument that a concept explicitly given a statutory

effort by the state to make it so.
Doreen was charged, remember, with
criminally-refusing to cede control of her expressions to the
state. Now, I'll grant you that technically her thoughts would
remain her own, but if the state can dictate what everyone says,
then pretty soon that atmosphere of controlled expressions will
result in first influencing, and then ultimately controlling
what everyone thinks.
If the State gets away with establishing the
precedent that every written expression-- even just those on
testimonial instruments-- can be required to echo the state's
preferred view of things, the fate of free thinking and liberty
is obvious (and it's not good).

The Paris attack is playing out as I expected. The
French government is attacking French civil liberty with legislation
similar to the US PATRIOT Act. Readers in France have informed me
that 84% of the French people, according to a poll, are content to
be spied upon as long as it keeps them safe. This means that only
16% of the French nation is not brain dead.
Another reader informs me that a TV news station read a
letter left behind by one of the alleged ISIL bombers, a letter
written in perfect English. Really! I mean, Really! Those with their
secret agendas know how stupid the Western peoples are, collectively
a hopeless basket case.
French and American politicians are demanding that NATO
Article 5 be used to put NATO boots on the ground in Syria. This is
important not in order to fight ISIL, which the Russians are
successfully doing, but to overthrow Assad under the pretext of
fighting ISIL, a crazy policy that could bring conflict with Russia.
Alternatively, to avoid conflict with Russia,
Washington can take advantage of the Russian government’s hope that
the Paris attack will show the West that Putin was correct that the
West should join Russia in opposing ISIL. Once a NATO-Russian
coalition, as advocated by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, is
formed, Putin becomes the West’s captive in the overthrow of Assad.
To insure that no one is informed of the true facts by

truthful news sources are “well-funded state propaganda outlets.”
