The Necessity of Auxiliary Precautions

“It may be a reflection on human nature that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of government,” Madison said:

But what is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.

That quote was used in an article discussing the conservative bias against ‘judicial activism’ and the conservative bias towards accepting prior decisions ‘versus’ the libertarian position that the Constitution is specifying a government that fosters freedom to the maximum extent consistent with people and their society. That assumption means that any increase in that base power of the state, e.g. any law, is presumed to be invalid in any challenges, the burden of proof is against the Congress and Administration in its enforcement.

The author concludes that the conservatives have the best argument, that judges must control the system but cannot do so via expansive interpretations of law or Constitution.

Call me an extremist, but I think they are both right. It seems to me that the Libertarian’s position is correct, assuming that the situation is solvable and the decision is based upon carefully reasoned opinions fully discussed in all contexts and possible ramifications. The Madison position is not inconsistent with that, except for ‘carefully reasoned opinions fully discussed in all contexts and possible ramifications’. They are correct that judges don’t always meet that standard.

But mortal, fallible, limited humans can never meet that standard, thus legal reviews of higher courts, Congressional approval of judges in a political process, and Amendments to the Constitution. The problem is the breakdown of the system enabled by the judges very slack interpretation of ‘A constitution of liberty’ being what the Constitution specified and enabled.  They have been far too accepting of government power, and modern ‘conservatives’ have largely accepted that, the liberals are just the point guard, the ‘conservatives’ ultimately follow their thinking in most areas.

Increasing government power is increasing centralization. To centralize is to set yourself up for failure because your system has stopped evolving, because one size does not fit all and the world around continues to change. The US government and society has centralized itself into failure.

The Constitution prescribed an evolutionary system that provided a government based on the best human judgement of how to run a society as anyone knew knew how to do in 1776, with the fitness function being the judgement of the common man. Freedom was always the way forward, any further laws were to be for the common good, subject to an  interpretation of the Constitution in which all decisions were to favor increasing the liberty of the people.

Modern interpretations of the Constitution allow the evolution of the modern ‘progressive’, even ‘liberal’, view of government being whatever they can get away with, given control of the media, education system, appointments to the Courts and large blocks of voters on welfare, corporate and social.

Forget Constitutional arguments, this is a meta-Constitutional problem. Our system of government is no longer capable of maintaining boundaries around itself, it has metastasized, escaped control of Constitutional feedback systems. Systems operating outside of the range where feedback can correct deviations from the desired state are not stable.

The US government is no longer a stable system, the many causes of that underlie this crisis of civilization that is upon us. Understand the base causes of our problem, and perhaps we can solve it.

The way we solve it is via our own auxiliary precautions.

This modern age has added very much to the complexity of economic and social calculations by the centralization and resulting rules and regulations. Centralization == stultification by rules and regulations of ever-increasing complexity because of the continual proliferation of interactions. What used to be a problem of different laws in different jurisdictions is now N! special cases laws in a common jurisdiction.

The web of subsidies and taxes and laws and educations distorts prices of everything so much we have no clue how much anything ‘really’ costs, it is all as ephemeral as the value of work in process, allocation of overheads, etc. All those make it very difficult to make rational decisions, to plan, based on the ‘real cost’ of anything

We can’t make intelligent decisions about anything when there is a historical bias to high rates of price changes, those make the risks for everyone higher. Increasing complexity of the economy means there are more economic gotchas as rapid changes in two or more costs make it more difficult to make rational decisions, requires many more failures to nail down the “does and don’ts”. The equivalent for individuals is the rapid evolution of careers as they receive support for reasons of particular political policies. These are operational risks and increase the failure rates for institutions, careers and lives.

We need to decentralize, which is only devolving from the pov of our central states and minions. It is empowering and evolving from the pov of the average man. Yes, local control == local sets of law. We need to depend upon localities to make their sets of law accommodating of freedom in common ways, local evolution by interaction of individuals in a locality with individuals and institutions in others. It doesn’t require a common set of laws to do that, it requires a common set of restrictions on Freedom. The one we all come to by showing each other the best example in our locality and depending on their judgement to chose ‘best working superset of Freedoms’ and implement it.

Back to reality! Reality has to be defined locally and implemented locally. They are the people with the skin in the game, they are the people to judge the effect of laws and administration.

A man is known by the sophistication of his rationalizations.


Daily Reading #1D1

These “Daily Readings” have been my notes as I have endeavored to understand wtf? with enough context over the last nearly 500 days. I hope they have been useful to someone besides myself.

The marginal return on that investment is declining, so I will go back to essays and amanuensising for The Generalissimo and Scherrhy. Time to attack the relentlessly growing pile of books I need to grasp to be sure I am translating their stories correctly, and to be sure that they don’t paper over some major problem their worlds had. Context is meaning, and I don’t grasp much of their context yet.

I am traveling for a few weeks, so sporadic for that time, and smaller lists over fewer topics, after that.

Maybe. Trump needed explaining. The developing group minds investigating the corruption in our society are impressive. The CIA’s attempts to take over the US and the world continue.

As a node in the internet’s group mind, I have some responsibility to keep abreast of all that. Some understandings can most easily be expressed in essays, and TG and Scherrhy provide a lot of insight about ways to reach a good future, but everything requires time and thought, always in short supply.

Balancing priorities is hard.

Suggestions are always welcome.

More investigation into the Las Vegas massacre, an obvious false flag. Jake Morphonios is an excellent reporter :

George Webb and his crowd mind continue their investigation :

Publishing this article in 2017 reveals them to have been extremely slow to fully complicit in the experiment. The only form of QE that could work is directly subsidizing the poor. That obviously has bad side-effects for the society, so we don’t do that. The current form is even worse, of course, but apparently not so obvious to even economic and political sophisticates. Motivated obliviousness, I think :

The roots of fake news, of CIA and Deep State propaganda, go very deep into US history :

Israel does not just tolerate ISIS, Israel and the US created ISIS. The only argument is who took the lead in doing that :

This is significant, tho I have no clue how or for who :
More evidence in the loss of honesty  :

Somehow I didn’t understand how good Jake Morphonios was. This was the understanding of George Soros I have been looking for. Very nice big-picture, historical, context.

I have never taken the New World Order / CFR / etc seriously. This changes my mind, puts Kissinger et al in context, and makes it clear that the CIA and other intelligence organizations of the US and its allies are supposed to be subordinate to those powers. Not quite true, of course, so my understanding that the Deep State is the world’s primary bad guys hasn’t been entirely wrong.

Also, of course, the CIA’s director was instrumental in guiding the CFR and other international policy groups, and founded some of them. It has infiltrated all of them, as it has all other significant institutions.

Jake buys into the ‘clash of civilizations’ between Muslims and the West to a larger extent than I think warranted, tho he certainly is not ideological, tries hard to be rational. Choice of words, interpretation of events, I think.

The differences in views of George Webb and Jake Morphonios is the extent to which the wars are being run by private groups for private gain :

Ian Welsh is correct wrt individual’s debt, but not governing entities. Conflating individuals with collectives is a category error, very common.

People have no control of their elites these days, and consequently their elites are corrupt. Too much of PR’s revenue has gone into the pockets of their rulers. The voters of PR need to replace that government, and rewarding it by debt forgiveness will delay that process. Hard hearted of me? No, the longer it is delayed the more deaths by normalcy. Sharp shocks are necessary to produce change. That change should include leaving the USofA, imho :

More evidence that evolution is an algorithm for finding futures that work, and by the far the best of those :

Who knew paleontologists could teach CSI so much? :

I foresee a problem of scaling the Neural Net’s learning what song a bird is going to sing milliseconds before it does so to a human’s intention to type a word. Zebra finches have a small brain and range of songs compared to human brains and language. Given how much variation there is in human EEG for even strong and simple emotions, every NN will need to be trained for individual brains :

My approach is to deny all information I can to every collector of information, as that makes it less likely they will attempt to do good, to help me whether I want it or not. It also gives the Feds less base for claiming good results for their efforts, e.g. the BLS’s lies about employment. Thus, I applaud the loss of these federal data collection efforts :

Brilliant propaganda — 99% true with the frame of rational and civilized Democrats against rabid Republicans. Interesting article for both aspects :

True about NAFTA and all the other trade treaties, they give enormous power to corporations and bureaucracies. The Teamsters are protecting their privilege, of course. Mixed motives for the environmental groups, of course :

Many sales people have access to client’s offices and may have an office there, I do not find this at all unusual. These are the immediate interface between client and the selling organization :

In case you are late in getting armed for defending yourself in the coming social breakdown, first a good 12-gauge shotgun, then an AR-15 in 5.56 per the reasoning below :

I assume his facts are correct for the purposes of this discussion. The meaning of facts is in the context, in this case ‘over-representation’ and whether that in itself is evidence of a Jewish Conspiracy controlled from Israel, a result of international Zionism.

First, over-representation compared to what? Jews are city people, educated, and gravitate to jobs that such people gravitate to. 2% of the US population, but I never met or even heard of a Jewish farmer, there are very few in the average small town, although there is a Jewish community in every city throughout the US. So clearly, the basis for comparison is the city population of America, the percentage of Jews among people in cities over 500,000, ones big enough to have a publishing and media sector. That is 140M in the year 2000, perhaps 160M now. Now we aren’t multiplying #Jews/total executives or owners in an area area of business by 100% / 2%, rather 50% / 2%, and have cut the over-representation in half. Roughly.

Second, one of the things Jews do very well, in my opinion, is train their children in business. I learned a lot about farming and related businesses listening to my father talk to people, and explaining things to us over the dinner table. Biographies of Jewish business leaders have them learning about business from relatives and friends.  Doing business was part of the culture. As educated and literate people, Jews have been involved in publishing and entertainment everywhere since long before there was an Israel, and have evolved along with that business into other communication media, TV, radio. Is it a conspiracy when children follow their parent’s profession? Is it conspiracy when people give opportunities in entry-level jobs and internships to the children of friends? I can’t put numbers on that, but it is another bias that at least makes the over-representation explicable in human terms, rather than a conspiracy.

Third, a business community is a positive feedback system. Good ideas make everyone money, and excellent execution of a business is a skill. Money, skills and ideas are synergistic when in the same community. So the Jewish business community was increasing at a higher rate than other ethnic groups, partly that social-knowledge advantage in business competition and partly the continuous influx of migrants who shared it, and the international perspectives and contacts that came with them.

Add in the social advantage that immigrant groups have : the cream of brains and health who got out of their home countries, they are used to less, material reward harder times, longer hours. They work cheaper, harder, longer. They expect more of their kids at an earlier age. Their kids tend to excel in school and life because of all this. Reminds you of the immigrants of this age, doesn’t it?

Another aspect is how we are willing to blame a group’s culture for their failure. Why can not a group’s culture be responsible for their success? Jews have been viewed as good at business for at least the last 1000 years.

That ‘over-representation analysis’ is astoundingly naive from any historical or social science view. Those don’t tell you the answers, tho there are many opinions and more than a few serious commentators on the subjects. Not just for Jews, for all ethnic and cultural groups, e.g. the dot-Indians and Pakistanis who are our modern homesteaders, running small businesses all across America. Jews run businesses in most cities because they were prior generations of cultural homesteaders as the dot-Indians are now.

But, it disproves only that that study can measure ‘over-representation’ as a meaningful proxy for ‘Jewish Influence’. The critique of that one argument doesn’t mean there is NOT an effective Jewish Cabal of Zionist Greater Israel intent, it just means that it arose as an element of that community, another bit of conspiracy, another division of people’s loyalties. It also does NOT rule out a real difference in the way Jews consider and deal with other groups, e.g. an unwarranted preference for dealing with their own group that is stronger and more effective than other social and ethnic groups possess. That still wouldn’t be evidence of any political conspiracy, of course.

Evidence of a conspiracy of global Zionists might be a difference in behavior between Jewish-lead businesses and non-Jewish businesses with respect to policies favoring Israel and Zionists. Obviously, true. A million facts would back it up. People do with their friends what their friends do. People have friends with more people in their culture-ethnic group than outside it.

And trivial to show a preference of Jews for Jews, members of their synagogue. All of social science shows it for every ethnic or religious group.  Even more amazingly the ties are tightest where the pressures on the community are the strongest.

But, what do those facts mean, what is the larger context, are they more than examples of what happens in every group? I would favor dealing with engineers from Ohio of my generation who grew up on farms, because we will think a lot alike, it is easier to communicate, easier to trust because you see things the same way, and will be mostly rational in the same way. Everyone is the same, it is the reason that the engineering groups in a modern electronic company have clumps of different nationalities : Russians are over-represented in testing software because there were so many engineers among them whose credentials and experience didn’t let them get jobs comparable to back home, but testing was something they were over-qualified for, with a bit of training on the job. When you have a choice, you work with someone most like you. You help them to get jobs.  It is the way people work. It is called ‘community’.

Another thing Jews are really good at is community. They have maintained their ethnic identity over at least 2000 years of turbulent history, there are not many groups that have done so.

So, humans are good at connections, and all kinds of interests try to engage our interest, we all end up connected through networks of those associations. It results in clumps of people, and boundaries. Managers tend to hire people like them who can also do the job. This is because more common assumptions make communications efficient and easiest for everyone.

None of this has to do with a cabal, a Zionist conspiracy or Rothschild banking favoring Jewish interests. There is no doubt that exists, but connecting those to individual Jews is an entirely different problem.

The statistical analysis presented in the comment is the same that epidemiologists use in attempting to determine the causes of diseases, tho very simplistic, it wouldn’t make a paper in an academic journal. Using correlation to determine causation is a difficult task both in theory and practice. At best, correlations are clues that must be investigated. Yes, no question Mossad commits crimes in the United States, having killed far more Americans than, for example, “Muslim terrorists”. Yes, no question there are many Jews committed to Israel and Zionism who are willing to assist the Mossad in those crimes. Those people should be investigated, tried and convicted, nobody should be above the law.

But saying there are criminals among Jews is to say Jews are human.  There are criminals among all ethnic groups and religions.

In fact, there is no trait of humans which are not present in every ethnic group.

Jews are a very successful group everywhere such success is permitted, and were well before Zionism existed. Brains, education, hard work and community were responsible then, and I think no further explanation is needed now.

I have to agree with Mark Twain in his discussion of German’s Jewish Problem.

More on the Mandalay Massacre. The government’s story is total BS. I posted a link to this woman yesterday, this is more detailed. The gun shots may not have done any damage to the hotel, I can’t get that straight so far. One video it seemed ‘yes’, the other it seemed ‘no’.

Some of the lower floor windows were service access to the outside, so they opened.

Youtube is definitely removing videos. The 5th of these recounts the CIA’s role in the Anthrax attacks just after 9/11. I must admit, I didn’t know about SAJ, the group originally blamed for the anthrax attacks. Mossad and CIA have been working together for a long time :

The RussiaGate insanity just keeps getting more insane.  This from Naked Capitalism today.  I rarely link to anything I have not read, but I didn’t read any of these. What could I learn, except that they do good propaganda that is killing their credibility :

Is Facebook spinning out of control over Russian revelations? FT. “3,000 political ads.” As opposed to $4.4 billion of TV ads, and 489,142 airings from Clinton between June 8 and October 30, 2016. Somebody’s in the wrong business….

Google uncovers Russian-bought ads on YouTube, Gmail and other platforms WaPo. “[T]ens of thousands of dollars were spent on ads.” Holy moley! Robbie Mook had over a billion! You’d think he’d have been able to squelch a five-figure spend by accident!

How Putin’s Russia uses Soviet-era tricks to evoke racist white fears WaPo. “We still don’t know exactly how any of these social media efforts informed Americans’ voting choices in 2016.” Sorry to lose my patience, here, but: It’s fascinating to watch all the Clintonite exculpatory narratives gradually merging… On the bright side, since Russian outside agitators are now responsible for stoking American’s divisions over race, all we have to do is go to war with them, and problem solved!

Un-mitigated BS. ‘Not all clocks are in sync’. No, it is a digital age, and all clocks are in sync. Every bit of every communication is time stamped to great precision, there are specifications for all of it, and those are used for every single item of police equipment and security equipment a casino would use. Prosecution and casino would lose cases otherwise. Who can believe such nonsense?

The Mandalay Massacre was a false flag operation. We can’t know much more than that at this point, but there can be no way the story makes sense, even ignoring all the stuff we know they are covering up. There must be much more we don’t know about that they are also hiding. JTTF guy is running the investigation, married to John Podesta’s daugher. CIA-Deep State links galore.

We can be sure we are hearing every morsel of info that supports their story, yet the story is not supported.

The 2nd link is another multi-video analysis of what parts of the crowd reacted before obvious sounds of shots, more evidence of multiple shooters. The numerology is unfortunate :

James Fetzer Professor Emeritus discusses the Las Vegas massacre. Excellent debunking of the official story. Paddock was a patsy, bet he never fired a shot, including the one that killed him. The security system for the Mandalay was not enabled that day!!

I had already forgotten Assange’s statement that the threat to the US is not Russia, it is Israel. Excellent review of the many false flags we have endured. Yes, Trump is compromised in some way, there is no other explanation for why there have been no prosecutions, why Sessions is inert. Fetzer goes into the long trail of evidence that Israel has with false flags.

The second of these is the kind of audio analysis I expected to see, tho I don’t know enough to evaluate the meaning of the different frequency spectra. Also, his assumption of the same caliber and cartridge for all the shooters is probably wrong, but could be extracted from spectral analysis, I think. Nevertheless this is a big step to understanding the meaning of the many audio recordings :
