Perhaps they're right, that apples have the power to cure illness and strengthen immunity; if so, it's worth considering Adam Kokesh's prescription for America, because for sure, the country is very sick. He's hoping the Libertarian Party will nominate him at Austin, TX next May, and has shown here what he will do if subsequently elected President. I'm impressed with his book FREEDOM! which I reviewed here three years ago. I still wish he'd rewrite its Chapter 10, but otherwise it's excellent. The book is yours for free, ready to download. The "apple" - Adam's cure for America - is that he will abolish the Federal Government at once. Just like that, with an Executive Order. He will then resign, and become a "custodian" of its parts, winding them down in an orderly way, rather as is done in bankruptcy receivership. He makes the good point that the FedGov is going out of business anyway because it is obviously insolvent, but by electing him on that platform, the process will be done with least resultant shambles. Not in the two decades since the late, great Harry Browne has the LP nominated anyone with a platform anywhere near as radical. Adam deserves success, and is working for it very hard. Every archist knee will jerk when news of this gets around. Oh! no, Executive Orders are meant just to be vehicles with which the Prez can instruct his staff. (Funny they haven't pointed that out before.) Oh! no, the Constitution does not authorize any of its three branches to abolish itself (or all three) - that would have to be done by a convention of the States! Funny they haven't mentioned that before when every one of the purportedly granted powers has been wildly exceeded, or when every one of the Bill of Rights has been trampled. But rely on them so to dismiss the platform of Adam Kokesh. It's possible to quibble, here and there, with the platform. One item is that offensive weaponry would be liquidated, ie sold. To whom? Foreign states? So that they can more easily wreak death and destruction around the world? - no, I don't think so. Many of the FedGov's assets could indeed be sold, but those swords ought to be beaten into plowshares. Also, I'm not excited by the idea of transferring national parks to the States; that property too should go under the hammer, and begin to be owned by real people. But overall, Adam's Apple is a dramatic and positive proposal. Could it happen? - could the apple be eaten, for real? - Yes, if. Those objections and many others like them will not withstand the onslought of public opinion, which is the premise applying here: that Adam Kokesh is elected President. That would mean that over half the country supports him, and so wants the FedGov terminated. The losers will be sore, and possibly some of them, like those in Russia in 1993 will bring Fri, 18 Oct 2019 02:26:47 -0500 12A011: What's To Be Done?, 2/29/2012 Fresh out of arguments, they the opposition http://www.theanarchistalternative.info/zgb/12A012.htm http://www.theanarchistalternative.info/zgb/12A012.htm Read more about '12A011: What's To Be Done?, 2/29/2012 Fresh out of arguments, they the opposition ' on the Zero Government blog...
