A contract which one party can change unilaterally is not legally or ethically valid. "I have altered the terms of the deal. Pray that I alter them no further." ~ Darth Congress.

Rights are essentially a treaty of peace between individuals. The fairest such treaty--and therefore, the one most easily negotiated--is based on reciprocity and symmetrical equality.

"Don't claim rights for yourself while denying that I also have them; don't expect me to respect rights you claim for yourself that you don't respect for others."

That's the only valid "social contract." That's the peace treaty I'm willing to make with anyone and everyone. I might be willing to negotiate some other treaty, but no treaty or "social contract" binds me unless I consent to it.

Liberty is the null hypothesis, and as such requires no proof.

It's the one who seeks to rule, to control the lives and choices of others, who is required to prove he as any rightful authority to do so.

Prove that the US government has any right to rule. Prove that anyone has any right to bind anyone to a Constitution without their explicit consent. The burden of proof is on you.

My right to liberty follows inexorably from your inability to prove any right to rule me.
 
It's not a good system. It's moral depravity in a pretty dress.

Who run Barter Town?

The UnDemocratic Party, of course.
But the measure got enough support to be brought up in front of the entire convention.

The two roots of the problem are 1) the racist war on (some) drugs, and 2) the de facto immunity of police.

The state sets the precedent that some have a right to rule over others. That's the only precedent they need to oppress you.

In the #GameOfThrones, either you rule or you are ruled. And the odds of your doing the former are very, very poor.

The power to decide what the law means, and how it applies to specific cases, can and will be used to make Constitutions and democratic elections irrelevant.

“Laws control the lesser man, right conduct controls the greater one, and neither control politicians.” ~ Mark Twain

An impossible proposition. If a government cannot impose its will, it is not a government. If a government makes a law and cannot enforce it, it is a failed government. By creating a government, the people create their own masters who have the power to do as they wish.

Had a small one of these yesterday. An inch of rain, and hail, in 5 min.

Awesome pic, by the way.

Story
Tagline
I'm not here to simply question authority. I'm here to deny the legitimacy of its very existence!
Introduction
Currently, I am a discretionary, private trader.  

Previously, I have worked as a programmer, software engineer, technical project lead, solution architect, enterprise architect and Director of Engineering and Architecture.  My software-related specialties include data structures and algorithms, object oriented analysis and design, meta-programming, Smalltalk, Java, financial trading software, date and time computations, source code versioning and modularization, software components, semantics, ontologies and logic programming.

My other interests include political philosophy (I'm a libertarian market anarchist,) the law, science & technology, business and economics, linguistics and foreign languages (Russian, French, German, Spanish), cultural anthropology, chess, fantasy & science fiction, fine dining, and a relatively wide taste in different genres of music.

Politically, I'm an anarchist. I don't think that any government should exist (where by 'government', I mean a state with a monopoly on making law, enforcing the law and judging how the law applies.)

No, that doesn't mean there should be no rules, just no rulers. Rules should not be made by a monopolist of rule making. Rules should not be enforced by a monopolist of rule enforcement. And whether or not the rules have been followed should not be decided by a monopolist of ultimate decision making -- especially not when those rules are intended to limit or control the monopolist who makes the decisions!
