No American Patriots Have Died In Any War, Ever

There has never been such a thing as a war in which American Patriots have died.

There has also never been such a thing as a war in which the Enemies of America were defeated.

Why is this?

Because America does not exist.

“America” as an entity, or as a thing–as something that exists objectively in the real world–does not exist. There is not a thing you can point to and say, “This is America.”

But what about the people? Surely they are America?

Sorry, the people who are called and believe themselves to be Americans are not objectively different than those who are called Englishmen, Afghanis, Japanese, or Australians. If you were to examine the DNA, you would find no gene or allele for “American”.

But what about the land? Surely that is America?

No. If you took a rock from America and examined it in a laboratory, you would find no characteristic called “Americanness” by which you could say that this rock was objectively different than a rock that came from anywhere else in the world, or the universe.

But what about the buildings and the cities? Surely all of those are America?

Again, no. Building architectures and city plans do differentiate cities from each other worldwide, but there’s not an objective difference that makes a building “American” or a city “American.”

The only reason any of the above are called “American” is because people believe it is. You don’t have “America” in any of the above–you have people doing things in cities and buildings on the land.

There is absolutely no objective difference between a person doing something in his home in New York than another person doing something in his home in Yakutsk.

America is a fiction just like God or Zeus.

The fact that nearly everybody believes it is real does not make it so.

The only people that have ever died in any war throughout human history are people who have been broken so very early on that they no longer remember what it was like to have a will, pride, honor, respect, or integrity of their very own.

They subjugated themselves to a “higher whim” that they dared not question. However, no such “higher whim” has ever existed nor ever will exist.

Beliefs in these fictions–god and country–have caused deaths in the hundreds of millions in recent centuries, if not billions throughout the course of human history.

The fact that none of these things have existed, currently exist, or ever will exist through the course of human history just leaves one question:

Do you wish for me to be shot if I do not believe the same things you do?

The Biggest–and Oldest–Government Program

While I was standing in line at the grocery store the other day, I saw the latest Newsweek magazine, which had several headlines.

On the top, there were, right next to each other:

“THE BLACKBERRY PRESIDENT” “QUITTING THE THUG LIFE”

The main headline, underneath a blue hand clasping a red hand in a handshake, was:

WE ARE ALL SOCIALISTS NOW
THE PERILS AND PROMISE OF THE NEW ERA OF BIG GOVERNMENT

The first two headlines are kind of funny in terms of juxtaposition. The first thought that comes to my mind is that they’re saying the president is no longer a thug, look how civilized he is!

But of course… even presidents cannot escape reality. If you’re the leader of a gang that shakes people down, you are a thug, it doesn’t matter how many gadgets you have or how many flowery speeches you make.

In any case, the main headline was even “better”. They’ve put this story on the front page as if it is a serious debating topic, or a serious thought-provoking article.

However, there truly aren’t any serious thoughts that get provoked in the course of this article, and there really isn’t anything to debate. Big government as a way of solving social problems has failed again and again and again throughout human history, and it has killed hundreds of millions of people even in this current century.

Blame is never put on the fact that the system has its roots in violence. It’s always that the wrong people were at the head of this system, which means that the populace chose bad leaders. Or, that the masses are too greedy, too stupid, too lazy, too whatever, to make the system work.

You never hear anyone in the media say, “The system is failing because, at its core, it threatens people with imprisonment and death if they do not comply.”

That is the biggest government program in existence.

Finally, they use the expression “new era” in the headline, as if now that Obama has been elected, something has fundamentally changed in the government.

The only things that are changing, however, are those which essentially are maintaining the status quo of expanding government power more and more and more. It’s not a real significant change for the mafia to demand 25% of your profits when, in the past, it demanded 20%.

No, this “new era” is nothing more than a dry continuation of the old–one that has been around for millennia.

The oldest government program: threatening people with imprisonment and death if they do not comply…

Or, in a word:

War.
