The invalid legal fictions of statism: counties, states, nations, etc.
Report #TL07A: THE ANATOMY OF SLAVESPEAK by Frederick Mann
"It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head." Sally Kempton
It's the nature of slavespeak to keep you in your place, i.e., oppressed
Terrocrat--coercive political agent
"...it's absolutely vital that you understand that the primary means terrocrats use to subjugate, control, and dominate their victims is words." F.M.
Beware the cattle guards for your mind, which are typically devised for you at an early age
The fundamentally irrational nature of spanking, or "tough love," rests on rationalizations for evil actions
Authoritarian sociopaths demand "respect" (in the form of fear and obedience), but turn-about is not fair play
Rationalizations support pseudo self-esteem and vice versa; if you don't honor yourself, you won't honor others
People in government commit crimes (such as extortion and kidnapping) with impunity, crimes which are forbidden to individuals
"[The State] will give you everything if you worship it, this new idol: thus it buys for itself the luster of your virtues and the glance of your proud eyes." Nietzsche
People have to maintain the language of seeming truth in order to maintain their power
People falsely believe that they would suffer if the State fell
The language of liberty (and euphemisms) are used to cover up the tyranny of statism
In general, slave-mentality can consist of many elements...
Each of us is responsible for our own happiness
Life is neither fair nor unfair; fairness is a concept that concerns human relationships
"It's the law" is slavespeak that denies taking personal responsibility for injustice and immorality
There are psychological payoffs for feeling down and out
"A belief that you have to sacrifice part of your earnings, property, etc. 'for the good of society'" spells complete enslavement
Absolute truth is absolutely true :)
Thanks for all the letters! by Sam Dodson (aka SamIAm)
How many civil disobedients and libertarian voices will it take to instill freedom memes in the general populace?
In a free market you get what you pay for, and you only get what you want--unlike imposed governmental "services"

who's your nanny? by Trevor Bothwell
Conflation of State and society disarms the masses and perpetuates the Stockholm syndrome
Mass cognitive dissonance circulating in the culture on account of the State
Orthodox Objectivist claptrap: http://capitalism.org/faq/anarchism.htm
"Legitimacy" of government is fostered by virtue of being a coercive "legalized" monopoly
Individual rights exist prior to any government; you are free to make choices by virtue of being a rational animal
The magnitude of the problem of government is reflected in slavespeak and failure to reason from first principles (and defining terms) as well as rewards for obedience
The choice for budding Objectivists: become a Randroid, or become an independent thinker (and thus anarcho-capitalist)
Once you abandon your search for truth, you succumb to your fears
Government equals completely communized justice; a monopoly of "justice" will always provide the worst quality at the highest price
Galt's Gulch was anarchy!
Fear of "competing gangs" stems from fear of others, not trusting them to be responsible individuals
"I swear--by my life and my love of it--that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine." John Galt
