Where Did "Authority" Come From?

After six months of this virus clearly demonstrating that it is no more dangerous than any other, the draconian government restrictions are not only continuing, they are being heightened to WWII level Nazi style abuse. Curfews, walking papers, mandatory masks for healthy people, trace apps on your phone, social isolation. And if you are caught out without your muzzle or after hours you will be punished by the authorities.

But why are they "the authorities"? How did they acquire authority that the rest of us don't have? What makes them so special that they can legitimately rule our lives like this?

I'm not referring to the current crop of known liars, connivers and baby kissers, I'm referring to the institution. It doesn't matter who is running it, people still refer to it as "the authorities" and act as if it's a mortal sin to disobey them.

You know how that institution was created? Some people just like you and me sat down at a table, wrote a piece of paper that said that they were "the authorities". They made the piece of paper all official and important looking, then they signed it and stamped it which made it official. Voila`, "the authorities" were born.

Then just like the Gambino family whenever it expands its territory, they went around informing everyone of their newly created "authority" which included the "authority" to take money from the community under the guise of protecting the community.

Then they hired some simple minded otherwise unemployable people to enforce their authority in case anyone questioned it, which happened a lot at first. No matter how you slice it, no matter how official and important the papers look or how intimidating the "law enforcers" are, at the end of the day, "the authorities" are just another criminal gang writ large.

No human being has any "authority" to rule another human being, ever. That's called enslavement regardless what official and important looking papers you have.

  1. Incredible how it works, isn't it? Thanks for being a voice in the wilderness which will hopefully become a bit more populated in the weeks and months to come.

Rush and Me

If you're an Accidental Tourist visiting from some other celestial rock, you don't know the significance of the passing of Rush Limbaugh (2/17/21). Look it up. You'll find everything from long-winded laudatory to wretchedly putrid bias. Political punditry has a way of bringing out the best in people and worst in scum. I should know - having frittered away 55 years of an otherwise exemplary life, making meters bounce and management cringe at some of America's Heritage radio stations in Major Markets across the country. Fortunately, audiences were more tolerant most of those pre-Cancel Culture years and the worst I suffered was the occasionally Breached Contract, otherwise known as Delayed Compensation (if you have decent attorneys - an oxymoron, I know). But I digress...My on-air relationship with El Rushbo is detailed highlighted in my book, " 50 Stories: 50 Years in Radio ." For the incurably inquisitive, here is the show from Atlanta, October 1990.   Profess

The Color of Crime

In the Age of BLM, here are some stats you may find informative - maybe even useful: • Black males age 18-35 years of age are only 1.8% of the U.S. population, yet have committed 52% of homicides from 1980-2008. Black males (all ages) are only 6% of the U.S. population, yet commit 46% of all violent crimes, and 50% of the gun homicides. If Blacks were removed from the equation, the U.S. gun homicide rate would be equal to Great Britain's, who have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world. • The Black homicide rate is 17 per 100,000, a rate over 9x that of the White rate, and comparable to some of those most murderous countries in the world. If the homicide rate for the U.S. were the White-only rate, the homicide rate would drop 84%, making the U.S. rate comparable to European countries. • According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (ex

As Seen on Facebook

Despite its legions of drawbacks, Facebook is still the primary congregator of commentary that occasionally produces something compelling, informative, revealing, unique, insightful. You decide. Here's a recent post that - remarkably - drew little response.... "I'm by no means a tough talker or an advocate for violence when others avenues remain available, but we have to draw a line somewhere with respect to rights. If we believe that the 2nd Amendment was created to protect the rights of the people from an over-reaching government, then we have to believe that there comes a time to use it. There can be no clearer time then when the government attempts to strip rights from its citizens, even if by some esoteric legal argument they are able to justify it to themselves. If this passes and, by some measure, it is upheld by the Supreme Court, we will have to decide as citizens if we're going to use our 2nd Amendment rights as intended or give them up and comply.
